International Livestock Impo
sition, Portland
The Pacific International Live"
Stock exposition is to be to the
Northwest what the "International'
in Chicago is to the Middle' West and
East. Last week the thoughts and
faces of farmers and breeders were'
turned toward Portland. Thousands
came and positively stated that they
could not afford to miss it. There Is
to be found at this show, the best
in the association, Instruction, in
spiration, and business. One could
clearly see that the' future' of live
Btock production in the entire North*
west is bound to be great. Breeders
assembled at the exposition refused
to concede any possibility about it.
They are augmenting their herds, be
cause they have no fear of the future.
The big outstanding feature of the
show was the birth of a new level of
excellence in the live stock exhibited.
The top animals in each ease' were
superlative in form, quality and fin
ish, It is no small honor to be at
the head of the line and receive the
coveted purple and blue ribbons.
Many of the Portland champions will
compete at Denver, Colorado, in I
January, 1917, against the Chicago
champions. Last year the western
bred animals held their own nojtly. j
Citizens of this stale may well be
proud of the high ranking taken by ,
the stock exhibited by their own
State College. A few side lights on
the principal premiums won by them
may be properly presented here.

as all others who are interested, will
be privileged to listen to an address
by F. W. Loomis of Aberdeen, grand
chancellor of the Knights of Pythias
and an able speaker. Mr. Loomis
will take for his subject "The His

taining and convincing and will
bring a message of value to every
man who hears him. whether a lodge

of Evening Star Lodge, No. 26,

Invitations to attend the address
will be extended to tin members of
all local fraternal organizations and
the heads of the various lodges will
be asked to occupy seats on the i^lai
form with Mr. Loomis.
His lecture is in no sense a Pythian '
lecture, but relates to the origin,
growth and development of the fra
ternal idea from tho very dawn of
history to the present time, and
therefore applies alike to all fra
ternal societies. Tucre would be no
European war today if the principles
of fraternalism had received the same
attention in Europe during the past
quarter century as in this country.
Judge Loomis is a finished orator
and handles his subject in a masterly
style. He clothes his thoughts In
beautiful language and presents them
in a forceful manner. His lecture Is'
interspersed with hits of wit and
humor, making it highly entertaining
as well as Instructive. He should be
heard by everyone. A cordial invita
tion is extended to all.
