I Importance of the Barnyard Bird as a Factor in American Life. Probably the principle interest felt in the egg industry by the average American citizen lies in the fact that within the last six weeks eggs have been working up front about 30 cents a dozen for the best quality to close to 40 cents to the purchasing consumer. This, however, is not paying the American hen the respect that is her due. She is not only an important but a wonderfully potential factor of the agricultural industry of the Unit ed States. Yet even the average farm er considers her almost beneath bis notice. He leaves her to the women and children, and begrudges her al most everything that makes even the slightest inroad upon his ordinary crop products. To her is assigned the " stunt" of providing her own living, and she must do that by gleaning every regular harvest. After he has dug and garnered and threshed and closed his account with each particu lar item of production—provided lie keeps such an account—the ben can find her subsistence in what he has overlooked. In other words, the poultry yard, to a great extent, is somewhat contempt uously regarded as a mere incident of his general business. Sometimes his wife or one of his children will take hold of that neglected branch and put him to shame by making it the most profitable feature of the whole establishment. Yet a delver in cen sus returns working for the Brooklyn Eagle informs us that last year the poultry and eggs produced and eaten in the United States were worth more than all the gold and silver mined in the world during the same year. Except for the year 1900, the egg pro duct of this country has exceeded in value that of its combined gold and silver output for every year since 1855, which takes in the entire bonanza period of our history, That, with the poultry product, also exceeds in value the wheat crop of twenty-eight of the most fruitful States and Territories. Reduced to concrete terms, in 1889 the egg record of this country was 1,290,000,000 dozen. There are thirty dozen to a crate, and 400 crates to a car, so a train of cars sufficient to accommodate the transportation of all these crates would reach from Chi cago to Washiugton, a distance of 868 miles, and then there would remain several cars of eggs to spare. In 1900 lowa produced 99,000,000 dozen and Ohio 91,000,000, having a value of over $10,000,000 for each State. Of course the incubator has considerable to do with poultry production, but incubators do not lay eggs. In a sin gle year the value of the eggs and poultry of the country has been as high as $280,000,000. Think what a hullabaloo has been raised over threatened ruin to beet sugar and wool. How much burning breath has been expended by the lobbyist and the political spellbinder in appeals for higher tariffs and pro , tests against reciprocity propositions. Yet, in 1902 our whole sugar produc tion amounted to only about $20,000,- PQO, while the wool industry is only about a third as important as the egg and poultry industry. It is only in quite recent years that we have thought it worth while to impose a duty on foreign eggs, and when it did come it was rather to make the sched ule symmetrical than because of any agitation or any conviction that it was necessary. There is no danger of glut ting the market. Farmers are ne glecting a great opportunity. In a summary of recent reports to the State Board of Agriculture they gen erally confessed it, yet, acknowledging the expedient, they still the inexpe dient pursue. "Aye, Eye, Sir." During the bombardment of Alex andria, in 1882, Lord Charles Seres ford asked a gunner if he could hit a man who was on the fort. The gun ner replied: " Aye,aye, sir!" "Then hit him in the eye," said Lord Seresford. He was surprised when the gunner inquired. " Which eye, sir?" "Hew to the Line, Let the Chips Fall "Where they May." THE TONY EXPRESS FIRST STEP SHORTENING DIS TANCE ACROSS CONTINENT. The Start Was Made April 3d, 1860, Over a Route 1,<}50 Miles in Length Between St. Joseph, Mo., to Sacramento. Cat Mail Weight Limited to 20 Pounds—Letter Rate Was $5 Per Hall-Ounce—Stations 25 Miles Miles Apart—Route Covered in Eight Days —4OO Station Keepers—Bo Riders and 500 Horses Employed -Supplanted by Telegraph in About 26 Months, Having Cost $700,000 or $200,000 More Than the Revenue. The Pony Express was one of the incidental steps in the progress of ra pid news communication and financial exchanges between California and the East. Gold was discovered in Califor" ilia on January 11), 18-18, anil that event caused a rapid inllux of popula tion. It was the first State admitted to the Union in the entire western half of this country. But communi cation was slow, both for mails and freight. A Pacific railroad was merely a dream of the future, as was a trans continental telegraph line. In the later fiO's, when the political skies were darkening with the clouds of the com ing civil war, there were three freight ing and stage lines from tho then western frontier to California. How ever, the mails and the bulk of the freight business was done across the Isthmus of Panama—by steamer from New York to Aspinwall, now re named Colon; thence by tho Panama Rail road, opened in 1855, to Panama, and thence by Pacific steamers to San Francisco. The best time by this route for the mails was 22 days. Of the overland freighting lines, the main one followed what was then known as the " Central Route," going across the plains, through South Pass and Salt Lake City, to Sacramento, thence by boat to San Francisco. From the time of the admission of California as a State the demand for more rapid mail transit grew with her increasing business interests. In 1855, a bill was introduced in Congress by Senator Gwio, of Califor nia, to pay a subsidy of not to exceed 1 $5,000 for a round trip for a weekly mail over the Central Route between St. Louis and San Francisco. The bill went to the committee on Military Affairs, and was never beard of after wards. But in the latter part of 1859, the freighting firm of Russell, Majors & Waddell, who were running a line of freight wagons overland from St. Jos eph to Sacramento, were induced, by the efforts of Senator Gwin, to under take a letter express, the Senator's ar gument being that, if they would dem onstrate the feasibility of steady com munication, summer and winter, on a schedule shorter than the 22 days via Panama, a contract could be obtained from the government for handling virtually all of the transcontinental letter mail. The above named firm could see no money in the project as an independ ent proposition, but went into it as a speculation, in the hope of obtaining a government contract which would re coup the inevitable losses. They in corporated the " Central Overland California and Pike's Peak Express company," taking in their General Superintendent, B. F. Ficklin, and three employes, to make up the statu tory number of incorporators. This new company took over the firm's stage line from Atchison to Salt Lake City, and purchased the Chorpenning mail contract and stage outfit, which was operating a monthly line between Salt Lake City and Sacramento. The new company also purchased the fran chise and equipment of a company operating a daily stage line between Leavenworth and Denver. All this was done to secure stations on the pro jected express line. The new letter express did not take the place of these stage and mail lines, which were oper ated independently of it. The letter express plan, as it was carried out, contemplated a mail line on horseback between St. Joseph and Sacramento, 1,950 miles. At the lat ter city the mail was transferred to a waiting steamer, and was taken as speedily as possible to San Francisco, which was the business terminus. This service was called the " l'ony Ex press," in popular parlance—for a horse was called a " pony" anywhere west of the Missouri in those days. To start the service, GO wiry and fearless young men were employed as riders, there were 100 station keepers in addition to those at the already established stage stations, and 420 strong, wiry horses were purchased. The start was made on April 3,1860, at the same hour eastward from Han Francisco via Hacramento, and west ward from St. Joseph, Mo. The route was announced to pass, from tho latter town " through Forts Kearney, Lara mie and Bridger, Great Salt Lake City, Camp Floyd, Carson City, the Washoe silver mines, Placervillo aDd Sacramento." OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY MORNING, NOV. 11, 1904 The mail carried was limited to 20 pounds; but this weight was rarely reached. It was carried in a peculiar leather arrangement, which li tied closely down o:t the saddle, with slits made to lit over the horn and tree of the saddles, which were all alike. On this were four leather pockets, two on each side, one in front and one behind the rider's legs. All were locked. One was for way-mail, to which eaclt sta tion-keeper had a key, and in which was a way-bill, on which the time of arrival and departure were recorded. The other three could be opened only at military posts, and at Salt Lake City. This ipiadruplcx saddle-bug was transferred from horse to horse, and from ridor to rider, along the entire route, uutil it reached the other end of the line. Everybody knows Hint the present rate of letter postage is two cents " for each ounce, or fraction thereof." The rate at first by the l'ouy Express was #5 per half ounce. As a consequence letters were written on thin, tough paper, so as not to exceed the half ounce limit. Large sums of money were carried, but always in the form of drafts or bank notes. Certain East ern newspapers got out special issues on tissue paper—but theso were more to show enterprise than anything else, for few people were able to pay sls to S2O postage on a single newspaper The rate was later reduced to $2.50 per half ounce. The original plan was to have sta tions, with fresh horses, every 25 miles. The rider who started from St. Joseph (or Sacramento; mounted his horse at the appointed moment. Accuracy in this was needful, because (so far as the St. Joseph rider was concerned) the time of departure wai widely adver tised in the East, and be could not start earlier than the minute which had been reported to the business world. For example, the first start was made westward at 4 r. M., on Tues day, April 3, ltsCO, immediately on the arrival of the train and mail from the Eaet over the Hannibal A St. Joe railroad. A ferry boat was in waiting —-to carry tha mail " saddlebags" across the Missouri, whero the Pony Express rider took charge and started westward. The first express left St. Joseph at 6:30 P.M., April 3. It ar rived in San Francisco at 1 A. M. April 14. The original plan was to have its stations 25 miles apart. The rider went these 25 miles on one horse. When he reached the station, a second horse,saddled and bridled, was waiting. He lifted his mail saddlebags to the second horse, and started off, not a half minute being lost in the transfer. A second transfer of the same kind was made at the second station, 50 miles ont. At the third station—7s miles—the rider transferred his mail saddlebags, and so it went across the continent, east and west. At Placerville and Carson City were the eastern termini of the telegraph lines from San Francisco. There was wild excitement in the latter city when the telegraph flashed a summary of general news, only nine days old, instead of 22 days, the shortest possible time by tbe Panama route, up to that time the quickest. Tbe California people, especially the business men, went wild. At Sacramento the whole city turned out with bands and cannon to greet tbe rider. The only time lost was enough to deliver the mail for that city; then the carrier was hus tled on board a waiting steamer, and hurried to San Francisco, which was reached at 1 A. M., April 14,1800. A huge procession of citizens, with the fire department, escorted the messen ger from the wharf to the office of the Alta Telegraph, the end of his journey. The distance from St. Joseph, Mo., to Sacramento, Cal., by the Pony Ex press route, is 1,950 miles, which was covered in a schedule time of eight days, as against 22 days by the Pan ama route. Tbe shortest time ever made by tbe Pony Express was in the delivery of President Lincoln's inau gural address, made on March 4,18(51. Special arrangements were made for this, because the whole Pacific coast was interested in knowing what the new President had to say on secession and tbe preservation of the Union. Extra ponies were at hand every ten miles, and tbe 1,950 miles from St. Joseph to Sacramento were covered in 7 days, 19 hours—the quickest time the Pony Express every made. The exigencies of the service soon led to changes, due to the character of the country. The distances be tween stations were shortened, wher ever it developed that the natural ob stacles were too great to make the best time. The original schedule provided for an average rate of eighteen miles an hour. Eventually this was cut to ten miles per hour. Tbe improve ment of tbe service, in the interests of fast time, called for a better equip ment wben tbe Pony Express got into perfect working order when it had front St. Joseph to Sacramento, I'JD station, 20(1 station keepers, 200 assis tant station-keepers, 80 riders, and 500 horses, to cover the 1,050 miles be tween Sacramento ami St. Joseph, at distances averaging 200 miles there were division agents to provide for emergencies. The lifo of the Pony Express was short. It began on April 3. LSfiO, with a weekly service. From June 10, of the same year, it was twice a week. Virtually no aid was extended to the line, except the issue of government revolvers and cartridges to the riders. When the first telegraph line across the continent was completed—that of the Pacific Telegraph company, Oct. 24. 1801—the Pony Express passed on: of existence. In its Bixteen months of existence, it cost, for equip ment, $1,000,000; for maintenance, $30,000 per month ; for expenses due to the Nevada Indian war, $75,000; other incidental expenses, $15,000. This total is $700,000. The total re ceipts were less than $500,000, leaving a net loss of over $200,000. This article is already too long to describe tlio Indian lighting which was incidental to the Pony Express service. Many of the riders were killed by Indians on tho war-path. VV. F. Cody (Buffalo Bill) was for a short time in his early manhood, one of the riders, and in his autobiography he tells in succinct diction, his ex periences. But, for the one man who escaped the Indians, there were a do/.en who fell before them. To them, tho men who fell in doing their duty, let us give honor. ONE SECRET OF JAP SUCCESS. Tht Health of the Soldier is a Matter of the Greatest Importance. Tho Japanese army engaged in shoot ing the Russians is teaching the rest of the world how to live. The great lesson of this war is that death from disease incident to campaigning can be prevented. Major Louis Seamen, a military medical man back from Japan, read a paper before the Asso ciation of Military Surgeons at St. Louis lately that contained some marvelous information. When Japan began to prepare for fighting the greatest attention was paid to the medical department. A great Japan ese medical authority said the Rus sians may put 2,(100,000 in the field. Many of them will die of army life dis eases. Japan will put 500,000 men in tho field. None will die from other diseases than collisions in battle. Up to July 1 there were no diseases in the Japanese army. There were no typhoid or other intestinal diseases that marked the camps of Alger, Chickamauga and Miami during the Spanish-American war. During our war with Spain seventy per cent, of tbe'soldiera that perished died from diseases. Two hundred and sixty men were killed, and 3,862 died in camps. Up to July 1 the proportion of Jap anese soldiers dying from disease to those killed was two per cent. The Japanese have abolished sickness from tbe army. They did it, Dr. Seameu says, by testing all water to be used for drink ing. The soldiers were lectured on the proper foods to eat. The smallest squad has a portable bath. So thor ough are the Japanese that the sol diers are directed to keep their finger nails closely pared and clean. Of the thousand returned wounded to Tokio before July 1 not one died. There are no fever camps, as there were in this country six years ago. Thus, Japan saves all her troops for the bullet. The " silent foe," says the military observer, claims nono. The peaceful nations can learn from Japan that disease is a matter of neglect. Parson's Joke. A well known Chicago clergyman who is a widower and the father of two charming grown daughters is also something of a wag. During his va cation this summer he sent the fol lowing telegram to his daughter: "Have just married a widow with six children. Will be home to-nior row." The next day he arrived alone and found his daughters in tears. " W-where is the w-widow?" they .sobbed in unison. " Oh," he replied, a merry twinkle in his eye, " I married her to another man."

One egg, one-half cup molasses, one lialf cup sugar, one-third cup milk, one-third cup butter, two cups Hour, one teaspoonful soda in molasses, one teaspoonful ginger, one teaspoonful salt, one teaspoonful cinnamon.

There is a right way and a profitable way for every business man to adver tise, and it's up to him to find it. Wo assume the Moses, of bibical fame, is the oldest scout known in history. We have read of him being a guide. The way the Russians are luring the Japs on, reminds one very strongly of the manner in which a small boy pro ceeds his father to the bedroom upon the occasion of a spanking. Hamlet's advice to players is fine for poetry, but it hasn't practical value, lie gives tliem a lot of instructions in elocution when he ought to bo telling them how to get to the next town. Councilmen Gill and Benjamin of Seattle, who enjoyed—perhaps—a fast ride of ten miles down a mountain road on a handcar, can now have some idea as to the sensation caused to the mau who is compelled to ride in a Se attle patrol wagon, mayhap for the first time. A worthless cur was sentenced by Judge Tallman, in Seattle, recently, to imprisonment for five years, coupled with a fine of one thousand dollars, for living oiT the earnings of a fallen woman. There is only one fault to this, and that is the woman should have received the same sentence. Editor Fowler, of the Wenatchee Republic, certainly will have his hands full, so to speak, in replying to the folks who live in and near the " home of the big red apple." From reports, Fowler doesn't seem to have the confidence placed iu him by many of Wenatchee's citizens that a reader of the Republic would suppose. The stamping ground of speakers of all creeds and classes on Washington street, Seattle, for years, is now taken away from the people who advocate reform in seventy different manners. Chief of Police Delaney has issued an order to his mon to clear that part of the city from Saturday and Sunday night agitators who speak—for money there is in it—thus collecting a crowd of listeners and blocking of the side walk. Here is an extreme case of modesty. Mrs. Wilkinson, age some years and married, went to the World's Fair, and wben she saw the Igorotcs, in the al together, her modesty caused her to faint. Wben revived she thought of what she had seen and fainted again. She kept on fainting until she had gotten Qn a train and was leaving St. J,ouis. A visit to the art gallery would probably have caused Mrs. Wilkinson to have a tit. Long may the Portland Oregonian live, and may Harvey Scott live for ever and forever—Amen. The Ore gonian has been the schoolmaster to many a young man and woman in the days when Washington State was a Territory. We remember when, if a family did not take the weekly Oregon ian they were considered very, very poor, and they were in intellect, if not financially. And where can you find another paper in tbe United States or Europe to surpass it. It's a shame and a disgrace the way everybody conspires to rob a rich man. An (Jlympia man, who as the old say ing goes, " has nion6y to throw at the birds," gave a party at his house re cently, and to amuse his guests ordered a quartet. And would you believe it, if four singers didn't crowd into the room and sing, and the Olvmpia man had to pay all four of them, and, mind you, dear reader, he only ordered one solitary quartet. That's the way the rich are swindled every day of their lives. Isn't this a shame? There are places in this country where a great deal of classic music is played. To any one but a doctor of music the performance is caviare. He hears no tune, distinguishes 110 move ment, he looks in vain for any theme and he can see no connection and no beauty. Yet the house is crowded with the very people who, if they were to devote a lifetime to it, could not understand a note of it. We once passed an evening with so called classic music at a church concert, three or four years ago. The profes sor took his seat at the piano and he pounded the instrument with a force that would have done great credit to the striking ability of James Jetl'ries. All of the music down on the pro gramme was " classical'" Several peo ple seated near us applauded every time tho professor finished. "O, it was just grand," we heard a woman say. Now these same persons had no more idea of classical music than Mead had of becoming Governor of Washington. If you had asked them about Beethoven, Wagner, List* or Rubenstcin, they ooulJ not to have saved their lives told you anything about them; but instead, perhaps asked you " What logging camp are they working in?" The more the pro fessor hammered away the louder was the applause. Classical musical con certs to us are " trashical" ones. JUSTICE PROCEDURE HOW That Court Maintains Its Dignity in Cook County, 111. The following amusing article re ferring to the inviolability of proce dure by which Cook county Justice of the Peace administer their law is from the Chicago Tribune. In the case cited the attorney for the defendant said right out that if the case were continued he would appear again, and continue to appear until the ca?e should be tried. Now it is not usual in Cook county for Justices of the Peace to render judgments in which defendants appear, either in person or by counsel. If there is an appearance for the defense the case is continued, and if the defense puts in an appear ance on the day stated, the case is again continued. This process of con tinuing the case is kept up until there is no appearance, when the justice proceeds to render judgment according to the law and the facts as he alone understands them, and as be only can understand them, unhampered by con tentious couusel or fractious defen dant. It is evident that had our worthy justice allowed counsel contu maciously to carry out hia announced purpose, the traditions of the court would havo been upset, and the land marks of justice court law have been destroyed, bo the learned justice, de termined that the established practice of bis court should not be violated, took up the docket, read the number of the case in question and said: "Case dismissed, as I will not try a case in which opposing counsel ap pears." Thus the time-honored pro cedure ef justice courts in Cook coun ty, Illinois, was vindicated! Comment ing on this Late Notes says: The Chi cago Tribune, for which we have hith erto had a great deal of respect, does not take kindly to this ruling, which it criticises most captiously, and even irreverently. It says that "it was when the irou had entered into his soul and had become eeceedingly hot" that the justice " forged from it this thunderbolt of law." But this only goes to show how little mere news paper men know about the law and proper administration of the law. Es pecially does it show how little the justice court system and the justices themselves are appreciated at their true value by some. The Chicago Tri bnne simply got beyond its depth. The fact is that a justice of the peace has such profound knowledge of the law that he had uo need of the assist ance of counsel. What if Chief Jus tice Marshall never decided a case until he had heard it argued by coun sel on both sides, believing that law yers who had thoroughly studied and prepared a case about which he knew very little, could aid him in deciding it justly and correctly? Chief Justice Marshall was not a justice of the peace. As a justice of the peace has no need of instruction in the law, so neither has he need of information as to the facts of a case. He usually knows the facts too. His is an all comprehending mind. His is not the dullness which Juvenal satirized, of "clodpate judges" before whom plead ers "must their vitals strain." Our own particular J. P. whom the C/ii cago Tribune does such scant justice, seems even to be superior to the aver age. Some justices, most likely through complaisance, will take testi mony on both sides, and listen to counsel. But our justice is wiser than these. His presumedly vast learning no doubt embraced a knowledge of the plight of the old man whom Ennius represents as saying after he had con sulted three lawyers concerning the validity of his son's marriage. " Now I ant more uncertain than ever." Our justice was too wise to take any un necessary chances. We wonder if our learned justice follows the precedent set by Pantagruel, who, when called upon to decide the case of Kissbreech r. buckfist, first destroyed all the papers on the ground that they were " truth-entangling." We respectfully suggest the plan for his consideration. It is with very great diffidence that we offer —presume to offer—sugges tions to this exemplar of jnstices, but if the boldness may bo lorgiven, or at ileast overlooked, we should twggest that he abolish the service upon de fendants of process—original process. What is the use of serving as sum mons anyway? A plaintiff states his case, the justice kuows all about the facts and the law, he enters judgment, and there is an end to the matter, ex cept, of course, the execution. There is no use in bothering the defendant until then—in harassing a poor debtor unnecessarily. But we know that a justice of the peace, particularly our 'justice, is wiser than we, and this is I merely suggested for what it is worth. WHOLE NUMBER 2,818. THE ATTRACTIVE GIRL. Much ha* been written about "the Amer ican girl" and her reasons for being ]>re- eminently the nio-t attractive girl iti the world. In bringing up git la mothers can't be too careful to let their daughters de velop all their nat ural charms to the utmost. The crucial epoch of a woman's life is the change from maidenhood to womanhood. It involves the whole body and manifests itself in the nerv ous disposition at this time. Nervous or sick women are afforded the opportunity of a lifetime, for the makers of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription now ofTer jffrw reward for women who cannot be cured. Backed up by over a third of a century of remarkable and uniform cures, a record such as no other remedy for the diseases and weaknesses peculiar to women ever attained, the proprietors of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription now feel fully war ranted in offering to pay *SOO in legal money of the United States for any case of f,ett corrliea. Female Weakness Prolapsus, or Falling of the Womb, which they cannot cure. All they ask is a fair and reasonable trial of their means of cure. "I cannot prai«e your medicine highlv enough," writes Mrs. Jennie Hippenhamer, of Huntertown. Indiana. "I began taking I)r. Pierce's Favorite Prescription and took it stead ily for six months. I was not <utce sick at stom ach. never vomited once. Took the 'Favorite Prescription' three times a day and when in severe pain took an extra teaspoonful of medi cine which checked the pain. I felt pleasant all the time and did not get nervous as I used to. When my baby girl came last August she was healthy. She is now eleven months old. Am thirty-eight years old and never got through so easily in all my life. Why should women suffer when they can get through so easily? I am able to do quite a washing and ironing which I could not do for eight years before." As a tonic for women who are nervous, sleepless, worn-out and run-down, "Fa vorite Prescription " is unequaled. For constipation, the true, scientific cure is Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. Mild, harmless, yet sure. No other pill can compare with them. -Attention.
