All the years that we as Americans have been cultivat ing our cotton and our wheat, the hen has steadily kept pace with the march of the procession In annual agricul tural productions and last year she had to her credit more than $600, 000,000, the approximate value of the poultry and eggs produced on farms In 1908. According to the Secretary of Agriculture the eggs and poultry produced on the farm are worth as much as the cotton crop, seed Includ ed, or the hay crop, . or the wheat crop. Thlg industry has advanced, at such a rapid rate that no arithmetic can keep pace with It. The farm price of oggs in 1899 was 11.15 Cents per dozen as an average for the United States; In 1903. 12.37 cents; In 1904, 17.2 cents; In 1905, 187 cents; In 1906. 17 cents; In 1907, 18.2 cents, and In 1908, 18.3 cents. In a bulletin prepared by Milo M. Hastings of the Department of AgrI culture, a lot of sound advice Is given the public In regard to the various phases of the egg question, which the department considers as a subject of Immense economical Importance and one to which too little attention haa been paid. Another Couple, Murtied. Walter J. Gilman of Pendleton and Miss Rosle Lyman of Cayuse, were married at 2 o'clock this afternoon. The ceremany was performed by Jus tice of the Peace Joe H. Parkes in his office. Spokane In August, has been here to day. He has Just returned from Idaho and other points east of Pen dleton where he had beeH in the in terests of the Irrigation congress. He is hopeful of having a good represen tation from Umatilla county at the coming congress. JUDGE It. S. BEAN'S OATH 1XK JUDGESHIP , Portland.

The Department of Agriculture hns recently been calling ft THE PENDLETON DRUG CO. YOUR BEST INVESTMENT OUR EXPERIENCE Washington. The office of the So licitor Ceneral of the United States these days looks like a cross between a moonshine factory and the rear room of the corner drug store in a near-dry town. In order to solve properly the mo mentous question "What Is whisky?" which has been referred to him by President Taft, Solicitor General Bow- ers not only laid In a generous supply tf all sorts of booze straight and blended, pure alcohol and so-called neutral spirits but he caused to be erected In his office a mlnature dis tiller', with colls, retorts, condensers and all the other paraphernalia nec essary In the manufacture of the real stuff. Incldentlly, before he could do this, he had to get a permission of the In ternal Revenue Bureau, which never permits the construction of a still without a regular federal license. In other words, Uncle Sam asked him self whether he ought to have a dis tillery In the Department of Justice for experimental purposes, and an swered yes. It Is the old fight between the dis tillers and rectifiers and the United States government as to the proper application of the pure food law. Chief Chemist Wiley contended that all blended whiskies were Imitations, and therefore should be branded as such. Distinguished counsel, among them John G. Carlisle and Joseph Choate, as well as highly qualified liquor connoisseurs have been argu ing and testifying on the subject be fore Mr. Bowers for some days past. None has yet tasted of the exhibits on file, but all have pulled corks, scented the aroma and smacked their lips.
