Practically every county of the state had its exhibit, and they were cer- tainly magnificent. Not only were the products themselves good, but the arrangement made the display par- ticularly beautiful. All sorts of ar- tistic designs worked out attractive- ly. Neither time" nor money was spared, it being said that it cost over to put the Montana ex- hibits there. Wyoming's Prize Oats Wyoming was represented by the exhibit placed there by Weston coun- ty, and had the honor of carrying off the oat prize, with a splendid sample of Swedish Select oats: They were raised on what was a few years ago supposed to be a desert beyond re- clamation. Yet they went fifty bush- 'els to the acre, and weighed forty- four pounds to the bushel. The alti- tude is over four thousand feet, and the rainfall is only about twelve inches.

The 1909 farm crop could build a thousand bat- tleships more beautiful than the lat- est Dreadnought. i "Rear., Admiral Evans recently made the statement that with 48 -bat- tleships, 24 in the Atlantic and 24 in the Pacific, the United States would V have an absolute guarantee of peace. The American farmer could give Mr. Evans sufficient money with which to build these -18 ships, and not miss the sum from his 1909 crop. "The American farmer with" his crop of 19Q9 could buy the entire United States "of 1850, all the real estate, the the factories and farms, including the slaves he could buy the entire present railway CHIN What is it?
