That the farm fair is Well Worth while has been demonstrated in dollars and cents by the department of agriculture. Its report shows that there Are in the United states 1,203 county fair associations with a paid up membership of 93,321, and that the total receipts in 1910 of the various exhibitions were $2,525,750.

It gives an Opportunity to secure cooperation in demonstration work makes it possible to get in touch with Farmers and conduct agricultural schools and Short courses not Only while the exposition is on but also in different parts of the country later. It makes it possible to collect in one place the results of Field demonstrations All Over the state and enables College and station men to secure Ltd a 1.

Watch for the hollow trunk the broken limb or the exposed wound where fungi May enter and ruin the stately old Friend. From any wound remove All the decayed Wood with a chisel and adz to 1 the sound hard Wood and smooth off the edges of the cavity to allow the. Free growth of the inner bark. After the cavity has been thoroughly cleaned out disinfect it with corrosive j sublimate creosote or even paint. Creosote is better As it penetrates farther into the Wood. The cavity should now be filled with Concrete one part j Portland Cement to two parts Sand. Make it thin so that it can by poured in at the top of the opening. When the cavity is Large it is necessary to re enforce the Concrete by placing Iron j bars across the inside it is also Best to drive Large nails part Way in around a the inside and this enables the Concrete to adhere better to the trunk. As the filling shrinks considerably in Large cavities the Walls should be first coated with a thick layer of tar. This. Expands and fills the shrinkage crack making the cavity air tight. There is now no Chance for any disease to enter and get in its work. After the filling has set a Little the surface should be smoothed off even with the inner bark.

J in exhibiting animals Hay and bedding should be provided free if possible and Grain should be sold at a very moderate rate to exhibitors. This matter of feed at fairs has caused a lot of trouble. Grafting very frequently creeps in leading to intense dissatisfaction and often to unpleasant experiences. J the judging must be done so far As possible by wholly disinterested experts. The judge ought to be ready to explain any finding if he is asked to do so. There Are plenty of expert judges available in All lines now As there is to reason Why the Best of judges should not be secured. The matter or concessions and a amusements has caused More Contro Versy and discussion than any other thing in connection with the state or a county fair. Trials of Speed aerobatic and sleight of hand performances exhibitions of trained animals moving a pictures military drills games of Ball foot races and Otier similar entertainments Are All unobjectionable when properly controlled and provide entertainment for those who come to spend an Idle hour. 1 but they should be very carefully supervised and not be permitted to interfere with the main exhibits and Ore educational features of the fair. All entertainments should be restricted to cd Talu hours when it would be possible for All who desire to witness and enjoy them. It is suggested that All county fairs a shall be supervised by the Secretary of the state Board of agriculture or some one from the department of agriculture. A general meeting of repro Senta Tives of All the fair associations should be held each year for conference and discussion of important topics. Imi Al . A gems from Popo.

It is a proof among Many others of what habit and custom can effect. At first i was As impatient of the request and As restive under the operation As a Colt is of the Saddle. The next time i submitted very reluctantly but with less Floun cing. Now no Dray moves More readily to the thrill than i do to the painters digestion and assimilation.
