FARMEHS AT THE FAIR.
Tlie Agricultural Exhibit Will Fartix
cetl All Former Displays.
The agricultural exhibit at the
world's lair, it is believed, will be
-tiidicd with greater intele.-t and by
inure people than will alnm.-t any
other division of the great expose
lion. Million.- are engam-d in
raising or dealing in agricultural
products, and every one is a con-su-.ner
of them. Recognizing this,
the exposition management has
provided accommodations and
facilities for this exhibit which
dwarf such provision made at 4iiy
previous world's lair.
Tlie agricultural building, an im
posing and beatililtil structure, sit
uated across the main lagoon,
southward from the great manu
factures building, is rapidly ap
proaching completion, ami will be
finished, even to all details of orna
mentation, before October 1. It
Measures atK) by Nto feet, and has an
annex ;otl by .VKI feet, and a con
nected assembly hall, which has a
seating capacity of l,5lH. Close by
on the south is the dairy building,
measuring H by '.'(Ki feet.
Occupying nearly till of the re
mainder of the main lloor will be
the exhibit of cereals and other fan ii
products from the states of the I'n
ion. liver j' state and territory, it is
expected, will.be represented by its
products. Tints, upon this one vast
lloor, covering nearly ten acres, will
be displayed in till their variety and
nerlection the pick of the farm pro
ducts of the world. It is beliceil
that the exhibit made by this coun
try, naturally exceeding that of any
other in extent, will attract great at
tention, also, by reason of its excep
tional merit, and the comprehensive
inform ition that will accompany it.
The northern portion of the main
lloor oi t he btti iding will be occu
pied by the agricultural and other
lood exhibits of foreign nations,
which, it is already a.-siired, will be
extensive. Great Hi itain, Germany,
France, Mexico, Austria, Denmark,
Sweden, Japan, Paraguay, Canada,
audit number ol oilier countries
have already been a-sigued space,
ranging from l.ooo to la,oo square
leet each. It is expected that the
agrictilui'id exhibits by these conn
tries will be as comprehensive as
those of our own country, and will
show some features which wi'l be
exceedingly instructive to Ameri
cans. This great exhibit, or rather array
of exhibits, will be made and ar
ranged in such a systematic man
ner thai the visitor, at it glance can
tell th.it not only the appearance of
object, but what it is, where it c ante
from, and "all about it." For under
the regulations adopted for the de
partment, C hicf Utieli.iiiau reiptiies
that each exhibit shall be accom
panied with tlie following data:
Xane of object, name of producer,
where grown, character of soil, date
of planting, quantity sf seed plant
ed per acre, method of cultivation,
date of harvesting, yield per acre,
weight, price of product at nearest
market, average temperature and
rain or snow fall by mouths be
tween planting ami harvesting, and
weather or not irrigation was cm
ployed. t )n the six acres of flooring in the
annex, which is virtually an exten
sion of that of the main building,
will be shown every description of
agricultural machinery, including
not only the best and most improv
ed now in use, but also such as will
illustrate the progress of the ittdus
try, from primitive times to the pres
ent. In the great galleries of the build
ing, which are most novel in con
struction and perfect in point of
availability, will be located on the
north front, the wool exhibit; on the
west end the apairy display, which
will include working colonies of
bees; on the south front the diary
implements, and on the great cen
tral sections the exhibit of the brew
ing and tobacco industries, and the
wealth of magnificent exhibits ol
Hour, meals, bread, pastry, sugars,
confectionery, canned goods, Oils,
soaps, chocolates, etc.
One of the most novel, instructive
and elaborate exhibits, anil one that
will undoubtedly attract the atten
tion of every scientific person and
scholar interested in any phase ol
agricultural lit.'-, will be that made
by tiie association of American
agricultural colleges and experi
ment stations. This exhibit will
occupy iM square feet of space,
and will be located in the south
west cnrner of Hi,, building, on the
first lloor. It will represent the en
tire work of a mode agricultural
experitnert ,-tatiou. covering en
tirely the tield of cxper.meiit and
research in crops, botany, horticul
ture, entomology, feeding stulls,
animal nut lit ion" dairy solids, milk
testing and veterinary science, and
will include an elaborate and
plete botanical, biological
and cueuiicai lanoralorv.
In addition to this, the agricul
tural colleges of the I'uited States,
will have, in this space, it combined
exhibit graphically illustrating the
work and special field covered
by each college. This entire exhi
bit is not only unique, but is some,
thing that has never been accom
plished or attempted at any previ
ous exposition. The exhibit will be
put up and conducted by the direc
tors of the different agricultural
colleges of the United States, each
contributing some part of the ex
hibit, the wnole to be installed in a
magntficient manner, at the expense
of the I nited States government.
1 his will give to every visitor an
opportunity to witness the methods
by which the jrreat m!uni- ; ,.n
phases of agricultural life and
research are carried on in the col
leges and and expitvtuent stations
ot the I'uited Stales.

to the agricultural building will be
installed traction and port hie en
gines and a wonder I ill 1 v iutere-l i ug
exhibit of windmill m-ichuicry.
Connected with the agricultural
annex by a short walk will be tlie
dairy building, in which will be
shown dairy products, and in
which will be cuudiicied during the
entire period of the exposition the
dairy school. Here will he con
ducted practical dairy tests for de
termining the relative value of dif
ferent breeds ol cattle as milk and
butter producers, ami of methods of
feeding." The records and results
of this school, unquestionably, will
be of lasting benefit to the dairy
interests of the I'uited States anil
of the world.
Connecting the Agricultural build
ing with the machinery hall is au
artistic structure known as the as
sembly hail. This will be devoted
lo discussions, by various agricul
tural societies, national organisa
tions ot farmers and live slock asso
tions, of questions of interest to
agriculturists throughout the coun
try. All visitors will be interested in
the agricultural exhibit, but its
chief value will rest upon a much
broader and more significant fact.
The exhibit will alloid a vast
amount of information to many
thousands to whom it will prove ol
incalculable benefit. The crops
best adapted to dillerent localities
and the reason therelor, the most
improved methods of cultivation
that ace being pursued, the best
results that have been secured and
the manni r ot their securing, and
the perh ction of products in every
line -all these will be shown and
will cou-titute the mote important
lessons which ttie agriciilttii.il ex
hibit will tea -h.

An A-f ite l.an.l (luindrr.
Ono fif tho most l.f!y ami atubi, imis
pTal.hers In the stafe of .Montana was
not long ago observed to be engaged in
a most my-iterious business. He was
taking women out into the wilderness, a
fc'.ago load or two at n time. They wviv
very reputable women school touchers,
typewriters, married women, and their
friends. They were taken to a largo and
pleasantly situated house, upon tlie pre
text that tin y were to attend a ball a id
a dinner and get if Pit) as a present. It
all proved true. Excursion party afhr
excursion party went out in this way,
and when the ladies returned to the tow n
that had thus been pillaged of its beauty
they reported that they had fared upon
venison and wild fowl, with tho very
vest of "fixings," und that nt tho ball a
number of stulwart and dashing cow
boys had become their partners, tripping
tin ir jight fantastic measures with :tr
enthusiasm which made up for any lac t
of grace that may have, been noticed.
Tho reader may fancy what a lark it
was to the women, and how very much
enjoyment the more mischievous wedded
ones among them got by pretending that
they were maidens, heart whole and
free of fancy! Hut while those women
were in tho thick of this pleasure they
each signed a formal claim tn a home
steader's rights in the lands thereabout.
And as they "prove up" those claims in
the fullness of tiuio each will get In r
v-HlO. The titles to the land will then
be made over to tlie ingenious inventors
and backers of the schetin . nnd th" lam!
will bo theirs. "Thus," in tho langun-.o
of a picturesque son of Montana, "a fob
b v can get a dukedom if he wants it."
This is an absolutely true account of the
conquest of a valley in Montana, an 1
tli" future historian of our country wi'l
find much ilse that is akin to if , a-: l
tiiat will make an interesting chapter in
his records. Julian loilpli in Harper's.
