Tho discovery la attribute to Prosl.
dent David Stnrr Jordan of Stanford
university that almost any American
of distinction can ti'nco bis descent to
a common ancestor, ono Isabolla do
Vormandols, duchess of Warren, who
lived In tho twelfth century, to far ns
that Is concerned, nono of ub lias any
difllculty In proving by unimpeachable
mathematics and Irrefutable logic thnt
ho Is warmed by tho transmitted blood
of nobility, royalty and genius. A
child of today has two parents, four
grandparents and so one. Counting
for convcnicnco thrco generations to
tho hundred years, his theoretical an.
ccstors In Isabella's century aro nura
bored by millions; a fow centuries fur.
thor back by billions. The actual num.
ber is far smallor, nlnce lines of descent
criss-cross from common ancestors;
but It Is a fair logical lnfcrunco that
among bo many millions and conturles
every ono mny count on possessing a
reasonable numbor of royal or dis
tinguished forboars. But what docs
that provo? How much influonco on
tho llfo of an American of today could
bo claimed for ono-sovcn-mllllonth
part of Isabella blood, or for any
probable numbor of multlploa of that
aharo? Horo Is tho crucial test of tho
heredity fallacy, tho scientific basis of
democracy, says tho Now York World
Eugenics Is a fact; but better far i.
descont from a reasonable proportion
of good stock In tho three or four most
recont gonorntlons than tho ability to
claim ono-two-hundredth part of a tiln
glo drop of blood as coming from somo
vrized ancestor of tho twelfth century.

Tho saying, "Othor times, ' other

ed thnt these Twentieth Century of

their own distinguishing features. In
ono case where tho polonaiso Is of
deep pink pnnno velvet worn over a
whlto chnrmcuso slip It is oxtended in
tho back to form a pointed train. A
glidlo of silver gnuzo crosses outsldo
tho volvet In tho back, but Is drawn
through oponlngB several Inches from
tho front edgeB of tho polonaiso and
then continued in soft folds across

old-timo agricultural fairs the de

Issued a bulletin treating of tho bene
fits to bo derived from such gather
ings. Tho report is of historic interest,
for It tells of tho beginning of such
"falrB" when tho country was young
nnd when they wero not only an ad
vantage to agriculture, but wero the
excuso for social gatherings aB well.
"What was primarily a market fair,"
says the report, "was held In October,
1804, "on the Mall on tho south side
of the Tiber, oxtendlng from the
bridge at tho Center Market to tho
Potomac in Washington, D. S. Tho
city government appropriated $50 to
ward tho fund for premiums and resi
dents subscribed nn equal sum. Thl3
amount was awarded to tho best lamb,
sheep, steer, milch cow, Jack, oxen
and horso actually sold."'
The report declares that tho first
real agricultural fair was hold by tho
Columbian Agricultural Society in
Georgetown, D. C In 1809.
According to tho newspapers of that
day. "It waB attended by a numerous
assemblage of members of the society,
among whom wo noticed tho president
and his lady, tho secretary of state,
fno secrotary of tho treasury, the sec
retary of war. the comtroller. tho reg
istrar, etc., and many other ladles and
gentlemen of respectability."
