This is a matter for the board of trade to take up as soon as the president and the secretary recover from the influenza.

"The milk supply.V said Mi. Lytic, "may be swatted some dffy by domesticating the whale. "Wlith the whole Pacific Ocean as a farm, the domesticated whale would put the Oregon dairy business on a mammoth scale. Whale are mamals, each of which furnishes about a barrel of milk at a milking, and, while at present they are a little too shy to bo exactly classed as easy milkers, some day they will be domeuticated." Dr. Lytle suggests placing a sheep or two on every lawn in Oregon as a more Immediate means of curing the milk and wool shortage. "A good sheep of long or medium wool will give as much milk as a $75 milch goat, and it is the finest obtainable for infants. In addition, from $6 to $8 worth of wool can be obtained. It the lamb is raised, ?10 can be obtained for it at Ihroo months, but, of course, if the milk is wanted the lamb must he sacrificed."
