They lino the room necessary, pioduce the food, consequently produce the gt eater profit. The writer was one of a committee appointed to petition our Legislature for financial aid for the poultry Inter-ests Inter-ests of tho State. As nearly all the other States of the Union lecognlzo poultry raising as nn Important Indus-try Indus-try It was natural to suppose that Utah would do likewise, It the matter were brought to the attention of the proper purtles So with hope high In our hearts wc duly piesented tho bill to the honorable body ref cried to, but, alar for vain hope, our hill was killed In a committee meeting without giving giv-ing the Introducers of the same op. op-portunlty op-portunlty to defend It. Let me Ay to the chairman nnd members of that committee, whoever they weie, that they never did u mote unjust thing In their lives. Let me also innke the wish that the poultry Industry of Utah shall grow to such ptoportlons that their waking ns well as their sleeeplng momenta shall be made u howling nightmare by the etowlng of thousands of cocks nnd the cackling of millions of busy laying hens. There was another bill before the Legislature at that time asking for State aid for an Industry which may In the next generation prove a source of wealth to Utah. I refer to silk culture. cul-ture. Two thousand dollais was promptly appropriated and a secretary appointed at a salary of $75 a month to aid this struggling young Industry. It Is said that we always send our men of the greatest minds to the Legislature. Leg-islature. Terhaps this Is so, and may-be may-be the workings of these great minds are so Utile understood by the common com-mon people that we wonder why It Is that they Blve money and other encouragements en-couragements to nn Industry fwhlch will, perhaps, amount to something nnd refuse to consider one that Is helping help-ing to pay the taxes of the State and helping to educate our futuie legislators. legisla-tors. Thf question of "Why Should Utah Import 1'oultry nnd Kggs" Is partly answered"by the ahove Lack of proper prop-er encouragement from the people whose duty It is to help rather than hinder nn Industry we have, and show special fnvoia to none. The only encouragement en-couragement that poultry gets In this Ptnle Is what the Utah Poultry nsso-elation nsso-elation has given It during tho past fifteen years, and an occasional dollar tossed out to tho breeders of poultiy at our State fair. There Is a saying that "all things come to thoie who wait," If you wait long enough. So there la light ahead Let us hope that as the products of the hen find their way to the muscles, the bones and minds of our future legislators, leg-islators, that their Influence will be great enough to put words Into their mouths and urge them to do something some-thing for the patient and long-suffering biddy. or.onoE TAYSUM.
