the bird just sat. Mystified, the
hunter moved closer to find it was
only a head. stuck on a stick. the
body of which, an earlier hunter
had to grace his Sunday dinner
table. Each hunter in turn. slipped
away silently and allowed the head
to repose gracefully there, for the
next one. who chanced to come
along, until finally the one came
along who had not had any luck
and who thought it too early for a
Halloween prank. However, the
pheasant is gone, but pleasant mem
ories linger on.

l While the utilitarian potato and
“the onion may lack romantic ap
lpeal, they take an important place
'among the state’s agricultural pro
! ducts and have done no little to
add to Washington’s fame as a
state where everything grows big.
The 1939 potato crop was valued
s at $1,000,000 and was surpassed only
I by wheat, hay and apples.
The state produced half a mil
[lion pounds of onions (496.000 lbs.)
{in 1939. The state’s exhibit as the
‘New York World's Fair put a few
onions the size of small pumpkins
lon display for a few days. They
[created an interest which tempor
garily outclassed Mount Rainier.
Hundreds of Eastemers sought to
order the big onions for use in every
thing from onion sandwiches to on
ion soup. They had never seen on
ion of such size, or with the sweet
flavor which captivated those for
tunate enough to sample them.
