Its report shows that there Are in the United states 1,203 county fair associations with a paid up membership of 95,321, and that the total receipts in 1910 of the various exhibitions were $2,025,750. The agricultural College and the Farmers Institute have been benefited very greatly. The fair gives these institutes and their workers an Opportunity to meet Farmers personally. It gives an Opportunity to secure co operation 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 Happy crowd at Maimi Faik. Names and addresses of representative Farmers with whom to correspond in disseminating agricultural information. At certain periods each Day demonstrations Are Givan at different parts of the grounds. These demonstrations include packing of fruit manipulation of the Babcock test spraying operations including the mixing of sprays As Well As killing dressing and packing of poultry for Market sanitary handling of milk transplanting budding and pruning of Trees seed selection,.cbeese and butter making testing agricultural Machin Ery cooking blowing matches Etc. I in exhibiting animals Hay and bed Ding should be provided free if pos sible and Grain should be sold at a tory moderate rate to exhibitors. This matter of feed at fairs has caused a Jot 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 no reason Why the Best of judges should not be secured. The matter of concessions and amusements has caused More Contro Versy and discussion than any other thing in connection with the state or county fair. Trials of Speed acrobatic and sleight of hand performances exhibitions of trained animals moving pictures military drills games of Ball foot races and Ottier similar entertain Mients 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 More educational features of the fair. All entertainments should be restricted to certain hours when it would be possible for All who desire to witness and enjoy them. It is suggested that All county fairs shall be supervised by the Secretary of the state Board of agriculture or some one from the department of agriculture. A general meeting of representatives of All the fair associations should be held each year for conference and discussion of important topics. Value of Whita Oak.

Late August is the time to watch your valuable old Shade and fruit Trees. Watch for the hollow trunk the Bro Ken 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 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 sublimate creosote or even paint. Creosote is better As it penetrates far ther into the Wood. The cavity should now be filled with Concrete one part Portland Cement to two parts Sand. Make it thin so that it can a poured in at the top of the opening. When the cavity is Large it is necessary to re enforce the Concrete by placing Iron bars across the inside. It is also Best to Derlye Large nails part Way in around the inside and this enables the con Crete 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. In a few years the cambium will completely cover the filling making a Good looking tree. Little texan Farmers. School children in Taft work like bees and grow Money making crops. Here is a picture showing How in Texas they teach the Young idea not How to shoot but How to Plant. In the town of Taft the school \u25a0 children have two acres of farm land divided into individual plats one of which becomes for the season the absolute property of its Little worker. The children Are furnished with a variety of seeds and the necessary Hoe Rake and shovel and Are instructed As to the Best Way to prepare the ground and Plant the crop getters. Then they Are left to their own devices concerning watering weeding Little fab Mebs nation s wealth. And the other details of farm work and the results so far have been As astonishing. There Are prizes Given for the finest vegetable specimens and for the orderly keep up of the Beds and the Chil Dren Are allowed to take Home or sell All the results of their Industry. Most of the prizes Are in medals but any child so wishing May have a Cash equivalent one boy cleared up Sll on his plot but a girl beat him by $1.02. There were 200 children in the first contest and nearly double that number this year and professor Moon Prin Cipal of the Public schools of Taft who started the plan expects to have 1,000 Happy Earnest Little agriculturists at work next year.

Wagner s music was at one time violently opposed in England and Ford Madox Hueffer whose father waste musical critic of the London times gives in his ancient lights some curious instances of the lengths to which the Campaign was carried.
