affair conducted under the auspices
0 a committee, the mem ben of
which represent "Montana, Idaho,
Oregon, anil Washington. However,
competition in the contest is open
to the world. A pen of single comb
White Leghorns owned by J. A. Han
son of Corvallis, Oregon, won the
medal for having laid the great
number of eggs. The second ;en
was owned by P. W. Harries of Seal
tie, Wash . and the third pen was

and hens having laid the first, sec
ond, and third highest number of
eggs respectively. Six other medals
-■•111 be awarded to pens and hens
whose eggs rank first, second, and
third in 6ale value. A hen laying
most eggs in March when eggs will
sei* at 30 cents, will not bring in as
great a profit as a hen laying a great
er number in November, when eggs
are selling at 55 cents. The clerk of
the poultry department is busily en
gaged in determining the sales value
of eggs of all prize layers. An an
nouncement of the winners of the

tremely busy superintending the pre
parations of the buildings for the
second contest. There is tremen
dous scrubbing, spraying, ami ham
mering going on the full 108-foot
length id' Hie building. One of the
poultry students vva^s heard to say,
"Gee, if I were a chicken I'd like to
live here; it is so clean and attract
ive."
Half of the birds for the second
All-Northwest contest have already
arrived. The varieties include Buff
and White Orphingtons, White and
Barred Rocks, Anconas, Butter*
Rhode Island Reds, Rhode Island
Whites. Buff and Brown Leghorns,
and most numerous of all, White
Leghorns. They come from both
city and country, and from a wide
range of territory -from Illinois,
British Columbia, California, Texas,
Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and New
' Zealand. They are shipped In ordi
nary fir boxes and in regular parlor
cars of coops. The hens are valued
by their owners, according to express
receipts from $10 to $100, and on
the whole they represent the heaviest
laying flocks in the Pacific North
west. The second contest bids fair
to be an exciting race from start to
finish.
