Champion Ewe at Live Stock Exposition
: :
- v*
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.

America Now Producing Costly
Sweets Used in the Detection
of Disease Germs.

In A. E. F.—Elaborate Caro
New Tork—Germany's grip on the
sugar Industry has been broken
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
Germany. The Teutons had such *
bold on the processes that they were
able at any time to destroy competl
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
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
the enemy.

against the pestilence which walks in
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
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

from manna, that nutritive gum with

of Israel were miraculously fed during
their wanderings in the Wilderness.
Manna is secreted from a tree and

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

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 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

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

sliced peaches. Put the buttered
crumbs and fruit In layers In a bak
