000.000-The Indiana Ch:cken is

6lss and tovse Indus-ries.
[From the Indianapolis Newb ]
The most valuable song sung in
indiana is the daily cackle of the
satisfied hen. If she and her ally,
the turkey hen, were to stop sing
ing their- monotonous lay the State
of Indiana would be from $10,000,
000 to $15,000,000 poorer every
year, and many whole communities
m Indiana would suffer a financial
paralysis and would wither up and
be whisked away by the breezes that
frisk around the crossroads.
There is nothing in Indiana that
distributes money so widely over the
State, or that loosens the tight
screws on so many small bank ac
counts. All of this may serve.as a
thought-germ for the man whose
habit is to shy a brick at the mother
who pilots her brood across his gar
- den lot.
If the hen were given the job, and
were permitted to devote all of her
energies to the general public good,
- she would mair&tain the State House,
the judiciary and all of the State in
stitutions, from penitentiaries to bos.
pitals; she would educate all of the
children in Indiana by meeting the
annual public school expenses, and,
on top (f that, in a favorable year,
she would meet the maintenance of
all churches of all kinds in Indiana
and discharge their home and foreign
mission obligations. Her produe
tion, measured by the standard of
the dolar, in many years is more val
uable than the wheat production of
Indiana, and most years she loses
the oats yield production at the half
ONE OF THE BEST INDUsTRIEs.
Indiana talks a great deal about
her Bedford stone production and
'the wealth of her glass industries.
The Indiana chicken, through the
summer months alone, distributes as
much money in the State as these in
dustries combined. The Irish and
* sweet potato, barley and a half dozen
cereal crops all combined fall far
short in valuation of her proauc
Acording to the figures com
piled by- the Government, the value
of eggs and poultry grown in In
piana last year was $15,000,000. Of
that amount it is estimated that the
egg crop was worth $7,892,215. Ac
cording to the chicken census, In
diana is credited with a population
-of 11,103,006 fowls.
State Statistician B F Johnson has
just been compiling his poultry sta
tistics for the last twelve months
and has just struck his totals. His
figures are complied, first, by coun
ties, on the township basis. The ag
gregiate for the State shows that the
egg market production in Indiana
last year was 47,119,216 dozen
* Wholesale poultry dealers, who cover
.the entire State, say that the aver
age price of eggs during the last
year was a fraction over 15 cents a
dozen. On this basis the past twelve
months' crop is given a valuation of
$7,067,881.21, which is but a little
short of the Government estimate.
According to State Statistician John
son's returns there have been 37,211,
600 pounds of poultry used and
* marketed in Indiana during the last
year. The wholesalers state that 10
cents a pound will be a fair basis to
figure that at. This places the val
nation of the marketable poultry at
$3,721,160 and makes a total of
HEN WORTH MORN THEN PENSIONS.
The estimates made by the whole
sale poultry dealers on the poultry
sold in markets, as a rule, fall a little
short of State Statistician Jobnson's
. figures, but not much..
Even taking the State statistician's
estimate, the good hen, in active pro.
duction, dumps a million dollars
more money into Indiana every y ear
than the Government dof's in pen
sions. The money goes, too, where
it will do the most good. Many
homes in Indian'a are ran by wives
who only have the small change to
operate on and to clothbe thbemselveF,
and if it were not for the chicken
money the churches in thousands cf
small Indiana towns would close up
their doors in a hu.iry.
All chickens look alike to most
people, but as a matter of fact, when
the Northern Indiana chicken meets
the southern Indiana chicken two
extremes in animal 1l1,e are face to
face. The Northern Indiana chicken
is worth two cents more on the
pound, but the Southern Indiana
bird is the one that comes in with
the egg money. She is the raw
boned, long, lean, lank fowl that ba3
to climb up and down hillsides, and
she develops lung, strenuous legi.
When she is killed and hung up
in market she makes a great show
for length, but it is a lean, raw
boned, colorless body with long,
spindling legs, and along scrawny
neck. In the Eastern market, that
controls prices, the Southern Indi
ana chicken is classed as "ordinary."
But this chicken has one great
merit-she is the most persistent
layer known in chicken history. She
gets down to work early in the
year. Cold weather has a hard time
heading off her daily song.
NORTHERN CHICKEN IS FANCY.
The Northern Indiana chicken is
graded on the market as "fancy."
She is a short-legged, plump-bodied,
tender fowl and when dressed she
has good color and it is for her that
the stewards at Delmonico's and
other fashionable places are looking.
It is said by poultry dealers that the
Big Four Railroad, as it cuts thi ongh
Indiana and Illinois, and the Penn
sylvania through Ohio, is the divid
ing line between this vastly different
northern and southern chicken popu
lation. Eastern dealers, it is said,
can tell by sight from what side of
the railroad the marketed fowl comes.
Indiana is the very heart of the
chicken belt, and the Indiana chick
en and poultry and egg shipments
compare with those of any other
State. It is claimed that the finest
chickens grown in the world come
from the prairie sections of Indiana
and Illinois, and from a section in
Michigan. It is a fact that a chicken
is seldom better than the soil it is
. IFFLUENCED BY ENVIRONMENT.
The poultry men say that a chick
en is never better than, the people
with whom it associates. However,
the~difference of the st ock in I..diana,
it is said, is due entirely to the dif
ferent opinion northern and south
ern Indiana people have concern
ing the chicken. The southern In
diana people think the egg more
valuable than the chicken, and they
use the egg laying varieties. The
northern Indiana farmers, who have
more corn and grain to feed, think
that the chicken is the most valuable.
The result is that, while the north
erm section has a greater ~ chicken
population, the southern section pro
duces more eggs. Of course, there
are exceptions to this sectionalis-n
rle-fancy grade 6hickens are raised
in southern Indiana and poor ones
in the northern section, but they are
exceptions to the rule.
The Passing from the Mereiless to the
Merciful-The Great Purpose gr Man
to Make the World a Little Bet
ter by Having Lived in it.
The following is a Sunday editor
ial from the Riebmond News by
Alfred B. Williams:
"It is a soft, musical word from
a Greek root born far back in the
forgotten years and among the lost
peoples who felt the the same unut
terable longings we feel and were
trying to make language to express
them. It means to die gently and
easily. Its significance is to pass
to glide as we do in half waking
dreams-imperceptibly and without
fear or pain, from the strife and
turmoil here to an everlasting peace,
from the dangers and the labor, the
fears and the toils and the many
burdens to an unibroksui and a dream
less rest. In a momenT, with the~
expirationi of a iseah the heart i at
has beaten so hard again.s ihe hr ats
so many times witb dread or hope or
suspense or arvguish may be still.-d
to be aroused no more to tumxulu
os throbbing. The breast that has
been strained with sighs and thbat
has ached with grief may be trai quil
and the body rack..d with pain way
find release and fre-dem at d I.'zg
That is the hope of Euthanasia,
of .inviting death. A womasn in1
Chicago who was a member of many
women's clubs committed suicide the
other day and left behind her the
one word, "Euthanasia," and one of
her associate members printed in
ustification of her act a poem with
the same name. The substance of
it is that when the cranker is at the
heart of the rose it is better to scat
ter the petals while they are yet fresh
ad beautiful arnd fragrant than to
see them wither; that when the bird
is vinlces and the glona .f its pnn
mage is gone and its life represents
nothing but silent suffering and <
pathetic waiting for the end it should
be made to die quickly.
Doctors have discussed the same
subject in their most secret thoughts
and in their most serious gatherings
frequently kept from the knowledge
of the general public. Often it is a
question with honest physicians when ]
a case is hopeless and the patient I
longs to be released from the agony
of living whether with a motion of i
the fingers, one single swift touch of
the hand where no man may know,
and the decision is between the man
responsible, the human being under
his care and the Creator of both, the
suffering shall be ended and death
brought with merciful swiftness to
end it all so far as present life and
the doctor's skill and knowledge go.
This is a question for the doctors.
They may know when a life can
meaa nothing but a short period of
agony or fear and they are responsi
ble for what they do in that most
solmemn and trying of all hours.
With them it is a matter of minutes.
With many other people who think
of euthanasia it is a matter of incal
culable years. Nearly all of us
have thought of it at one time or
another. The long and silent and
dauntless sleep beneath the sod seems
very restful. The refuge from the
toil and the burdens and strife,
seems very easy. It is only the near
est drug store or firearm or. the blade
or the always convenient water, and
it is all over, so far as this life is
Yet has any one of us the right to
say or to think that his or her life is
ended, that the opportunities for its
usefulness are gone? The rose be
neath its fragrance and its beauty
has no soul and the poor little bird
has nothing but its song and plum
age to give. Are we not more than
they? Did not the Chicago club wo
meu who commended the act of their
associate forget that the human mind
and heart and soul abide in the hu
man frame and that while they live
they may be consecrated always to
the highest and sweetest and noblest
purposes and may bring forth the
They have but a narrow and dark
ened view of the purpose and the
meaning of human life. The rose
dies soon when separated from its
parent stem or at the coming of theI
canker or with the passing of the
summer day or the breath of the
chilling #mda from the North, and~
its fragrance pleases the senses a mo
ment and is gone forever. The song
of the bird lingers in the ear briefly
and is forgotten. The hand, the
tongue, the countenance, the eye of
the living man or woman may do
good as long as they are living and
make results here and for the life
unknown and beyond.
None of us having life or sense or
faculties are helpless for good. Many a
dying hour has exhaled fragrance ex
pressed in a beautiful life, a triumph
ant death, years later, and in the
glories of resurrection and realization
of the dearest hopes of our race.
Many a blighted life has borne fruit
and blossomed never to be blighted
Not one of us living may say that
our days of usefulness or of hope
are gone. Always there is work to
do for the poorest and feeblest and
weakest and most disheartened of us.
The roses and the birds die with the
seasons and the times of their lives.
The lives of any of us may be made
to yield beauty and fragrance and
THE V-RGN -C
nusic which will go across the hid
len river and carry memories of us
tnd propitiation for us and win
nercy and love for us at the Great
White Throne, where all will be
judged, and in the sweet, calm fields
>f Eden all of us hope for, where the
wicked shall trouble no more and
he weary be at rest. Life may be
iard , as it is often-and those es
:eemed most fortunate by the world
which does not know what we have
:o bear as our burlens, the bidden
burdens being the worst of all,
may leave the hardest it all
may be cruel and desolate and hope
Less for ourselves. Yet- it may be
made fraitful and beautiful and
3plendid in results if we can forget
Durselves and remember that after
all it is a matter of whether we will.
The woman who sought euthanasia
was seeking rest, unmindful of 'he
work she had to do. There is a
world full of poor sisters of hers
needing help and a sister's hand and
voice every moment of their sordid
and miserable lives. If she had gone
to the almshouse as an inmate, help
less and pauperized, she could have
found somebody more miserable than
herself to'-colnfort and strengtlh n
and lift up.
Euthanasia-the peaceful and
painless gliding out of life and its
troubles-is sweet to the ear and
many times sweeter to the thought
of us, because to most of us our
troubles sometimes seem heavier than
we can bear. Yet it is but rank cow
ardice after all. It is a miserab'e
evasion of responsibility. Dream as
we may and hope as we may in yonth
and remember as we may in age, t;e
grand purpose for which each of us
has been brought into the world
through the travail and suffering
and danger of some woman is to
make the world a little better be
cause we have lived. in it. That is
the foundation idea for each of us to
begin with. If we do begin with it,
we will not lose it. If we acquire it,
however late, we will tiud that we
are n,eve-r too poor to be u erul, mkver
too-old or too feeble to oe help'ul,
never while we have b eat i anrd
strength in us past doing what we
were sent to do, no matt.er wbat oum
rcord.s may show.
It is for each of us to live and tc
do and to hope. The Alniighty and
mysterious power may be trusted and
