SEATTLE'S POULTRY SHOW.
The Seattle Poultry Association
held its annual show in the Armory
from January 6th to 12th, and sur
passed each of the preceding shows,
both in number of birds exhibited and
quality. There were about 750 en
iries made and the competition was
very i>.een. Almost every poultry fan
cier in this county and in Pierce, as
well as a great many from far outly
ing points, were on hand. Represen
tatives from Oregon and California
were there; also a few from Idano.
The largest number of any one breed
were found in the Barred Plymouth
Rocks, and they were so evenly
matched that Judge Hinds found it a
hard task to decide which were enti
,led to the prizes. It took him two
days to do the judging.
The attendance was fair, although
not quite what the officers of the as
sociation had hoped for. A lhtle more
publicity would probably have brougut
a large rattendance. The association
is growing every year, and at each
annual exhibit is trying to outdo pre
vious shows. It is believed that fu
ture shows will be more largely at
tended, as the poultry business on
Puget. Sound is being engaged in by
a greater number of people every

PATRONIZE THE SHOWS.
We are now in the midst of the
shows. Quite a per cent of our sub
scribers are breeding some of the
standard varieties. Many have been
in the business for years, while others
are just studying for the first time a
few thoroughbred fowls that they have
bought or raised from eggs purchased
the past season.
It is the new breeders we wish to
encourage, and it is the new breeder
on whom the future of the fancy poul
try business must depend for its sup
port. The old ones drop out one by
one, and the new ones must take their
place, and by the increased interest,
born of a strong determination to pro-
duce something better than has ever
before been bred, we see the interest
and quality of our exhibits on the in
There is not a reader of this paper
but would be benefited by a visit to
these shows, and it is a part of your
business duty to give them your sup
port. No matter whether your are an
old or a new breder you will find it
profitable to give your local as well as
your state shows a recognition by en
tering a few of your best birds and
attending the exhibit in person. If
you are an old breeder, you encourage
others, and if a new breeder, you will
gain valuable information that you can
ill afford to do without.
The poultry shows are the keystone
to the fancy poultry structure and
should be encouraged in every honor
able way. It is eary for the big shows
to take care of themselves, so long as
the local ones are well patronized, for
they are simply a feeder to the large
exhibits. But let the local shows fail
and the whole structure would soon
topple over and fall to pieces.
No matter who you are or in what
part of this great country you are liv
ing, if you are interested in thorough
bred poultry, you should patronize the
local shows, and in this way assist in
this great poultry work —a work that
brings credit to us as a nation, and a
work from which you can derive both
pleasure and profit.
