The history-making character of the Twenty-Fifth Anniversary is em phasized by the fact that seven for eign judges from three continents will assist in designating the victors. Canadian exhibits will be out in full force, headed by a herd of price-win ning Shorthorn cattle from the Prince of Wales’ Alberta ranch and entries from the Agricultural College and Ex periment Stations of the Dominion. As an added incentivei for Canadians to compete in the Grain and Hay Show classes, the provincial govern ments are offering cash bonuses to their farmers who are successful in the various contests. In addition to the special honors and trophies, over $100,000 in cash prizes will be awarded in nearly nine-hun dred separate contests, $10,000 of which is offered by the Chicago Board of Trade as premiums in the Grain I TUB UNIVERSAL CAR < More Comfort for Less Money The Ford Coupe is the lowest >: riced closed car on the market— yet one of the most satisfactory.

(Tho followffig verses are from the pen of Holt county's poet laureate, P. O. Hazen, of Opportunity, Nebraska.) I sit in retrospection Amid the dying and the dead, For the Fiend of Fall is raining The oak-leaves on my head, And sorrow, heavy sorrow, Seems to weigh upon my soul, As I wonder if death only, Is their everlasting goal. How often have I sat beneath This same old knarled oak tree, Amid summer scenes, in summer dreams, ^ Oh visions yet I see, Why right there is a robin’s nest In the fork of yonder bough, ’Twas sheltered by the finest leaves, AH scattered ’round me now. Oh, oak tree! Why such coward now ? You have braved the hurricane; Why to this Fall Fiend do you bow ? The summer’s lost! What gain? Your friends forsake you when you give up; The robins long have flown; Beware this Fiend don’t get your friends And call them all his own. Those leaves, that you have cast aside, Are your own flesh and blood; Yet hearlessly you cast them off I To wither in the mud. How can you now,with dignity Uphold your honored name 1 When seeing them lying here? For shame, old oak! Have shame. Oh; Laughing Jack; Forsake thy mood: Don't come to censor me; i I want you to remain my friend I For all Eternity. So I will tell you of my life; Tho the telling may be slow. ; I Have patience, hear me to the end, Then choose—my friend—my foe. I’ve stood upon this selfsame spot, ‘Till forty rings are mine. I’ve sheltered from the summer sun, Three families named as thine. I’ve made pure and cool, the air When it was blistering hot, That thee and thine might live content; That thee might perish not. I’ve waved those leaves to beckon rain To moisten up the air, I’ve held them up for many days To shelter you right there; » I’ve called a breeze from daily calm; I’ve gave that grass, my dew; For forty years, I’ve been a friend To man, and nature, too. Oh, well I know that all be true I'll grant it all—and more— I’ve had thee shelter from the rain; As safe as home indoor, I’ve sat within this very spot As lightning reft and rent; Aye: Sat and watched the storm without;— Yet fearless and content. You made a man of me, old Oak, That fact I won’t belie; For when I would have given up I would think of you and try. I would think of you, as bent by storm, - Spring gaily back to place; I would hear you as in whispers low, You would taunt him to his face. But today! Ah friend make it plain, Before I hurry thence, And take a picture along with me Oh misplaced confidence; I do not like delusions, Whether carried by foe or friend, I do not like acquaintances Who turn coward in the end. All though your courage is supreme, When Spring or Summer is here, You have a very different mein, When old Fiend Fall comes near; You bow your head and tremble then; You cast your leaves away; You act as tfio the Fiend of Fall, Had come, yourself to slay. One moment, Jack, and understand, That this known Fiend of Fall, Is just the offspring, of Jack Frost, The Arch-Fiend of them all, Who follows soon his offspring’s track, With winter’s icy blast, And makes your scenes of Summer time ' Just memories of the past. Should I stand out disdainfully, And heed not the youngsters’ call, But hold my leaves this season thru, And thereby cancel fall; Nor slacken my pulse, with thickened blood, Nor don my winter garb, Then old Jack Frost would reach my heart, With his cruel and icy barb. And lo! Next spring when he went back Unto his summer goal; Then here I’d stand in your fair land Devoid of Life and Soul; And the Resurrection of the Spring, ’ Would be all unknown to me; I’d know nought of the beckoning sun, / Nor that birds were calling me. And you, friend Jack, might come and sit, And meditate alone; And listen to the snap and crash, As I tumbled bone by bone Until, at last, the summer’s sun, Would force you leave the spot That I might lie me there some night In ever-lasting rot. Forgive me for my hasty words, Your picture is too complete; I am not worthy to be your friend, Nor kneel here at your feet. Never again can I hold doubt; I’ll always be your friend; Please Shake those few remaining leaves And let the seasons blend. I bare no ill-will toward you, Jack, I want you for my friend. Now go you home secure in that, Until the winter’s end; When springtime with its birds and song In future day comes back, _ Then come you to this very spot, I’ll be waiting for you Jack. Good-bye old Oak! I’m going now; I’m happier now by far, For now I know that all is well; By knowing what you are And I’ll be back upon this spot, As you just said I may; I’ll be the first to welcome you, Spring’s Resurrection day. Upon the summit of the hill I waved my summer crown. The oak waved back so violently That every leaf came down, And now as I sit in solitude Awaiting the winter’s end, My thoughts are all upon the day That I shall greet my friend.
