Surpassing exhibits, both iu mining and in agriculture resonrces, at the Lewis and Clark Exposition have placed the state of Wyoming in a ranking place among the many rep- resented at the Western World's Fair. Wyoming visitors, who have attended since the opening of tbe Fair on June 1, to tbe number of or more, have been pleased with the showing which their state has made, while easterners have expressed surprise at tbe great variety of resources shown jui Wyoming's exhibits, and at the ex- cellence of products displayed. In her agricultural showing, Wyo- ming has gained particular distinct- ion by her wool display, which is honsed iu glass cabinets and show Wyoming space in the building. Some fine cosep, in the Agriculture range wool is exhibited by fainter Co, of Evanston, and the F.S.

At tbe entrance to the section which the slate occupies in the Agriculture building, a great variety of threshed grain and gross seeds is exhibited in glass tubes.

Next Tuesday will be an aiispioimm day for Guernsey, for it will mark ,he opening in our little city of a high well banked and permanent aapking house. The men who are aehiod tbe new enterprise are prom- inent in Wyoming financial and busi- ness circles and are well known throughout the west as able and con- servative financiers. Indeed (t would be a difficult matter to select two names which would carry more weight than those of Thomas A. Gosgriff aod George Abbott, both of whom have had many years expert ence in various lines in Wyoming and enjoy the absolute confidence of the people. Mr. Cosgriff is president of tbe First National Bank, of Cheyenue. First National, of Uawlins and First National, of New Castle; he is also president o! the Cosgriff Bros. Sheep Co.and the Cosgriff Bros. Co. which last named company operates live or six. stores in different towns in Wyo- ming. Mr. Abbott is cashier of the First. National Bank of Cheyenne and ban served the state as senator aud state treasurer. Both Mr. Cosgriff and Mr. Abbott have liverl in the state for manyjflars and are loyal Wyoming citizens. The new bank, therefore, will be. what might be properly termed, a home institution, under the super- vision aud control of men who met with marked success in thwetatii and who understand local conditions thoroughly.. t Gaorgf Bald, of wide commercial and banking exper- ience in Wyoming and the, westr, will have charge of tbe affairs of the new bank and we believe, that under his management tbe institution will become a potent factor in the devol opmentof northern Laranue county.
