Such is Mirza 'AH Kull Khan, Charge d' Affaires of "the Persian embassy at Washington, C.. and delegate the Persian government to the Dry-Fanning Con- he said to the who had the pleasure of- making Ms acquaintance at the Alexandra Hotel, "is no thin, viiew in Persia. In fact (that country iiwiy bo said 'to be its home. In 'the and foothills the wheat ii sown and, never watered. The Very 'method bf crops Is followed, tfut in certain parts the soil is so fertile that there Is need for rotating. Of course the methods followed are -prim, ith-e, and I am here for submitting to my government all the latest methods as 'well as to show its co-operation the aims of tho Congress." Garden of the World According to Mirza All Kuli Khun (Persia is the garden of the world, and agrees with the poet Aloore that "flowerets and fruits blush over every stream." "The 'jest said he, "originally-came to America from 'Persia, arid Persian peaches, apple's ami grapes, adorn the gardens and vineyards of California, and Oregon.! there one thing lacking in them j and .that is their fragrance. This is al groat feature of (tie Persian grown fruit, and the Jaden caravans leave in their wnke a Icng trail of scent. There Is a kind' of apple grown there which i.s superior to any grown in the world AViiun the rip-oned fruit falls to the ground it liroalcs to pieces, and transformed into the most fragrant nectar. Melons are cultivated to such a size tu-o form a burden for a camel. J-lard wheat is grown in Per- sia on the plateaus, and the soft var- iety where tiiero is irrigation." Impressed With Exhibition Accompanied by Magistrate Bcntley, nMr. Khan visited tho 'exhibition Sunday, and 'was much impressed with all lio saw. He noticed many varie- ties of grain, but missed Uic white wheat, tho Bizo of a small pea, lie had .seen only in Persia. Time and dis- tance prevented his government send- ing an ex.'i'bit in which this variety would havoibecn present..

It was he who engaged Morgan Shuste; for the Persian government, Mowevei he mentioned that .there was no truth in the newspaper tulk of ihe'uoiuiiig partition of Persia. H would bo Hie policy of England and Russia to'loavs the country as it, i.s. At present it is ill a most -prosperous condition, want to tell yon that there has been a growth in Persian revenues recently. The customs- receipts have so increas- ed during the last two years that after meeting the instalment due on the government debt, there is suflle- ieut left over to guarantee a new loan of and' (o mwl police and military expenditure for the next two years. The -country is ao means bankrupt." Persian Colony in California Mr. Khan is interested in a schetn for forming a Persian colony in Cali- fornia' for carrying on the manufac- ture of Persian rugs aild shawls. There are now nearly a thousand Per- sians in Cliicago alone, and iiie open- ing of the Panama canal, giving ac- cess to the Pacific ports by an extra payment of from Xew York, will lielp greatly in Persian iimniyraiion lo the north'west, where agricultural idvantages are similar to Persia. The Persian wwisttv is? a man of western culture, and iy married to an American wife, whom illness prevent- ed from accompanying him to Letlt- bridge. He is a Doctor of Philosophy of.'the University of Teliurau, where' he studied English undfr an English j professor. He has nianyj Persian works which are current lit-j erattire in the United States. the Man Behind the Exposition Here is the man most deserving of the credit for Lethbriiige securing the Dry Farmiing Congrras. AJiter- lilie Choyenue success he kept tile ball roll- ing and Lethbridge forged into the lime-light. It won prizes and finally landed the Congress itself. "W. Sle- Nicoi has had a big hunk of the work for the 1912 Congress too. Chairman of the Exposition Committee is no easy ob especially this year when this side of the Congress sets a record Thank McNico] for that too. He is worker and likes beating records. That's what lie started out -to do with .lie exposition and you can 'oursolf that he has done- it.. is an Eastern Cunaditni. ,-le came west some years ago and Lethbridge has been his home most the time. For a time he was oxecu- ive ollicer of the Board of Tratio and it the present time is in charge of he great Lethbridge fall exhibition.
