I Champion Ewe at Live Stock Exposition W:l ; : : » W l M - v* J m L-'< The Paéific International Live Stock Exposition which will be held at North Portland this year, November 5-12, will probably contain the largest sheep show in its history. Manager O. M. Plummer believes that there may be 1000 head. In view of the fact that all the fairs and shows In the Northwest this year are showing greatly increased sheep exhibits, his prophecy is apt to come-true. . The animal shown above is "Oregon iAasie," the champion yearling ewe in the Cheviot breeds, owned by R. A. Templeton of Halsey, Oregon. Western Oregon has long been famous for its middle wool sheep, and already this year notable winnings have been made by exhibits from this section at fairs and expositions throughout Canada and the eastern part of the United States. , -, . . , ...... Perhaps it was not altogether a fable about Jason adventuring his life In search of the golden fleece. While the wool growers of the Northwest have had a hard time since the war, the ultimate future of wool and mutton prp duction is certain to be financially profitable. The day will come when no farm will be considered fully stocked without a small flock of sheep. » There Is bound to be a great deinant) for breeding stock and the Pacific International will furnish an opportunity unequaled for securing foundation stock.

Buys Washington and Dion Streets (Riverside Addition) GERMAN GRIP ON RARE SUGAR GONE America Now Producing Costly Sweets Used in the Detection of Disease Germs. RESULT OF WIR NECESSITY Prompt Work of Chemists of Groat Assistance In Fighting Typhoid In A. E. F.—Elaborate Caro Necessary. New Tork—Germany's grip on the sugar Industry has been broken rare at last by several American manufac turera who are now able to produce those costly sweets used In the de tection of disease germs. The most expensive of these, quoted at several hundred dollars a pound Is far beyond the reach of the average housewife, and yet It plays an lm portant part In scientific research and must be obtained. At the outbreak of the European the group of rare sugars used in laboratories was manufactured in war cur Germany. The Teutons had such * bold on the processes that they were able at any time to destroy competl ttoo. One of these sugars is of exceptional value In the detection of typhoid, as the organisms of that disease are-so fond of It that they naturally select It and so multiply upon It that their presence can readily be detected. The military hospitals of the States called upon members of the American Chemical Society to co-op erate In the making of rare bacteri ological sugars for typhoid work, and, according to a bulletin Issued by that society these efforts soon proved suc The fact that the health of United cessful. the American expeditionary force In France was so good was largely due to the quest for typhoid germs which was made possible by the preparation of these unusual saccharine substances In laboratories of the United States. The Investigations which developed from the employment of these agents did much to forestall outbreaks of typhoid fever and to Indicate the need of special vigilance In vaccination against that dread disease, which In the Spanish American war caused deaths than did the bullets of more the enemy. Guido In Selecting Germs. Other rare sugars are used as guides In the detection of germs are therefore invaluable aj weapons against the pestilence which walks in darkness. Bacteriological or rare sugars re quire the utmost care In handling, for the presence of any Impurities or of another kind of sugar renders them unfit for the precise purposes for which they are intended. It requires the utmost patience and scientific skill to put them through the various steps of purification. Often through some slight slip or mishap days of work may be lost, and It Is necessary to go back and repeat the processes In order to obtain the required stand ard. This elaborate care Is responsible for the seemingly enormous prices at which the rare sugars are listed. High as these costs may appear they are said to yield only nominal profits to the manufacturers. The most expensive rare sugar quoted In the catalogue Is duleltol, for which $375 a pound Is asked.' Mannose Is worth $140 a pound. The ivory nut better known as "vegetable ivory," is Imported In large quantities from Ecuador, and Is used for the manufacture of buttons for coats and The chemist makes mannose gowns. from the scraps of the button fac tories, btrt the high cokt of the result ing product is due to the many ac curate processes through which he must put it tn order to obtain abso lute purity. Sugar From Manna.

Manna is secreted from a tree and forma In thin scales, which at. certain times and under unusual weather con ditions may be blown high into the air by the wind and then deposited npon the ground. The Biblical narra tive recounts that the Hebrews found the bread from heaven lying upon the earth In the early hours of the morn. As manna has a delicate and delirious taste which resembles that of a sweet wafer, it is not so good when long exposed to the air—as is : alao told in Holy Writ j Xyiose, held at $120 a pound, ^ Is the dahlia, but can be obtained at only j Other rare sugars are : Artbtnose, for ; which 9100 a pound is asked; levu lose, an 980 a pound product ; and raf finose, for which the manufacturing j chemist receives 978 a pound, Only small quantities of these su- : made from the lowly corn cob.

The following method Is s good one : Out the fowl In pieces at the Joints, wash and dry, roll in sea soned tlour and fry brown in hot fat. Pnt Into a baking pan, sprinkle over It one-half cupful of celery and two tablespoon fuls of minced onion. Cover with hot water ; place another pan over It and cook in the oven until tender. More water may be needed If the chicken Is an old one. Cottage Chicken.—To two cupfuls of cooked chicken, cut In pieces, add one cupful of cooked macaroni, one half a large canned pimento, one half of a grated onion. Prepare a white sauce, using one cupful each of milk and chicken broth, three level tablespoonfuls each of butter and flour with one teaspoonful of salt: mix with the first combination and cover with a rich biscuit dough. To keep the gravy from going into the crust, place an Inverted cup or small bowl, well greased. In the center of the dish before pouring In the gravy. The gravy will thus go under the cup. Loosen the crust and remove the bowl before serving. Watermelon Cocktail.—Cut a chilled melon Into thick slices, remove the seeds and cut out with a vegetable stamp or a potato cutter Into balls or shapes. Sprinkle with a little pow dered sugar and serve In stemmed glasses as a beginning for a luncheon or dinner. Peach Betty.—Use the soft crumbs from the center of a stale loaf of bread. Mix three cupfuls of crumbs with one-half cupful of melted but ter. Have ready a pint and a half of sliced peaches. Put the buttered crumbs and fruit In layers In a bak ing dish, sprinkle each layer with sugar, grated orange or lemon peel. Bake one hour. Cover the dish during the first half of the cooking, but re move to brown the crumbs. Serve hot, with sugar and cream.

It Is not necessary to be a graduate of household economics to understand planning a well balanced ration of palatable and nu trltous food ; but It Is essential that study .should be put upon the se lection of foods, for a small amount of food rightly combined win give Jtnore energy than a large amount lily combined. Some one has said that the selection and organiza tion of f >od In the diet is as Impor tant as the organization of an army. A properly disciplined force of soldiers Is more effective than an untrained mob, we will agree. One of the essential things to re member is the different groups of foods : I Aw, »1 sa it 8i vegetable acids and body-regu lating substances. This is a most im portant group and has been slighted In the planning of the ration far too We find these substances In np pies, ]«ears, berries, melons, oranges, lemons and other fruits; In salads of gre en vegetables, such as lettuce and cre ss; In greens, like spinach, green peas , tomatoes and squash, when purchasing supplies for the 1.
