Mow Down Trees went down before them like reeds, the tanks grinding them remorselessly under the steel-shod runners. At times each tank was knocking over half a dozen trees at the same time, llteraily rooting them from the earth and lumbering forward over prostrate trunks a foot or more in diameter. The sheer power of the geared Liberty engines overcame every obstacle of ditch or bank or hrnsh or tree clump, and not an inch to right or left from tlle selected course were the monsters forced to swerve. Later a Inirflature tank attack was delivered over tile rough, Sandy field that is the playground of the school herd.

Twi=o Ordinary Sin Winlock, Wash.--Hens' eggs averag- ing nearly twice the ordinary eize are now produced by some queer-looking chickens on the ranch Stnbbs, near here. The type of big egg producers has resulted in the suc- cessful crossing of the well-known Leg- horn breed with imported fowls from South Manchuria. A species of hen in North China and Manchuria was reported by the United States consul as capable of laying eggs of which five to six weighed a pound. The largest American eggs average more than seven to a pound. The Manchurian hens brought here last summer were mated with pure- blooded Leghorn roosters and the re- suiting eggs hatched. The imported hens are black and the Leghorn Is white, and some of the chicks have htte and black feathers.

The ranch has displayed a promi- nent part In Island history and was one of the few places in the territory which did not pay homage to "king sugar." In the early days of the huge estate, life was ds wild and carefree as on any cattle ranch in the main- land west. The Hawaiian cowboys were considered of the finest in the world and took many trophies and prizes at mainland rodeos. Most of Richard' time is spent upon the mainland, chiefly on the Pacific coasL but his annual visit to the ranch is marked by a huge cele- bration, rodeo and barbecue In which the countryside participates.
