Hog Sale Annulled.
lOwiug to the fact that hogs for our
swine stile and institute could not be
obtained, the sale had to be abandon
ed. At the last minute we had a con
signment of quite a few morn bred

if postponed until Fepruary 24tb, as
proposed. ibis hesitancy on their
part has caused The Kanch to abandon
it for this year. We will, however,

AN OPEN LETTER
Monrovia, Cal.,Dec. 9.
Having been a resident of Monrovia, Calif.,
and being personally known to a large part of
the p ople of that city, I am taking this method
of ottering a public explanation, both in the
interest of my many friends and in the interest
of the entire city, which ought to know why
and how I apparently accomplished the seem
ingly impossible feat of overcoming a prouounc
ed hopeless case of Tuberculosis.
Ten years ago I became a victim of The Great
White Plague. Not one physician, but a score
of physicians, examined me and gave the unan
imous verdict that there was no hope. In ten
years I have expended 120,000, abandoned my
profession, and tried all the known climates ab ■
nolutely with no beneficial results. The decline
of my health was gradual aud uninterrupted,
until from a robust man of 30 years, aud weigh
ing 200 pounds in 1900, I had reached the fctate
of chronic invalidism, and was reduced in
weight to 133 pounds in July of 1910 Neither
myself nor my friends expected me to live to
see the New Year of 1911. On the 10th day of
last July, I commenced the Tuberclecide treat
ment out on the Mojave desert. Today, after a
week less than five mouths treatment, I have
entered into a business engagement projecting
into nve years. I am regaluing my weight at
the rate of a pound a week. lamin a condi
tion to undertake business affairs— a thing not
even to be thought of at any time during the
last four years. I have used the treatment and
1 know ail about ii. If you knew all I know no
power on earth could prevent your investiga
tion of theclaimsof TUBKRCLKCIDtt. Notone
but hundreds have been cured in the past year,
and thousands are being healed. This adver
tisement is costing Dr. Aycock nothing. I am
wholly aud personally refcpousible for it. If ray
case wa-s not hopeless then there never was a
hopeless case of T«berculosis. Come and be
convinced. Kaithfully yours.

Ault's Prize White Minorcas.
One of the most promineut displays
at the Everett show last month was
that made by D. V. Ault and wife in
their great exhibition of White
Minoroas. These birds of Mr. Ault's
are surpassed nowhere, and make a
very beautiful display. Mr. Ault says
that this strain of birds came Ir.mi a
trio purchased at the Pan-American
Exposition held at Buffalo from C.
W. Jerome, b'rom this trio he raised
65 pullets and 14 cockerels, and in
1904, 11 pullets and one cockerel were
brought to Washington. At the Lewis
& Clark Exposition, he won first and
third hen, and first pullet. At the
Minorca Show in Tacoma in 1909 they
made a clean sweep in three classes,
and were announced by the Judge to
be the best White Minorcas he had
ever judged. At the A. Y. P. they
made a clean sweep winning from one
to tbiee in each r»f five classes, and
wou the silver cup given by the Inland
Poultry Journal. At Everett, they
won first, second, and third pens;
first, second and third hens; first,
second, and third pullets, and first
cockerels. Mr. Ault says that te
never sells any of his birds, and the
ony way to get this strain is by buy
ing the eggs. Since November he
has sold one hundred cockerels. His
great bird, Crystal King, vvas one of
the greatest attractions in the Everett
National Mid-Winter Sheep
PORTLAND, Ore., January, B—One
thousand head of sheep and goats
graced the peus of tbe National Mid
winter Sheep Show held in connection
with the National Woolgrowers' con
vention, which has been in session
since last Wednesday in Portland
Thes? sheep shows are annual events
with tbe woolgrowers when they hold
their convention and invariably attract
the best sheep herders of the United
States. It was tbe opinion of such
men as Dr. James VYithycoiube, of
Corvallis, aud P. W. Harding, uf
Waukesha, Wis., that the show held
in Portland contained the finest sheep
ever gathered together in America.
Especially was this true in the long
wool class of the Cotswold breed,
Royal winners of England were enter
ed in competition with the Oregon
bred yearling ram and it was easy to
win the grand championship.
Tne lower floor of the Armory was
cut into 250 pens to provide for the
accommodation of the large number
SHEEP EQUAL TO EUROPE'S
In the Ranabouillet breed tbere were
exhibits by the Buttertield Livestock
Company, of Weiser, Idaho. The
Rambouillet is a native of France and
Germany. He is a remarkable look
ing animal, to those not acquainted
with sheep and the ram carries large
horns, superbly curved. In the judg
ment of the scorers these sheep were
the equal of any to be found in
Europe. R. H. Jackson, of Dayton,
Wash., also had several very fine
specimens, as did the Nunamaker
Sheep & Land Compauy, of Ueppner,
Or., but they were of the unregistered
class. In the Lincolns the Cloverdale
Stock Farm, of Dcci Island, Hawley
& Sou, ot McCoy, and M. S. Woodcock,
of Corvallis had several splendid
specimens. Out of the show, which
