FARMERS AT THE FAIR.
The Agricultural Exhibit Will Far Ex
ceed All Former Displays.
The agricultural exhibit at the
world's fair, it is believed, will be
studied with greater interest and by
more people than will almost any
other division of the reat exposi
tion. Millions are enaed in
raising or dealing in agricultural
products, .and every one is a con
sumer of them. Recognizing this,
the exposition management has
provided accommodations and
facilities for this exhibit which
dwarf such provision made at any
previous world's fair.
Tkie agricultural building, an im
posing and beautiful structure, sit
uated across the main lagoon,
southward from the great manu
factures building, is rapidly ap
proaching completion, and will be
finished, even to all details of orna
mentation, before October 1. It
measures 51J0 by 8U0 feet, and has an
annex 3(J by 5oO feet, rind a con
nected assembly hall, which has a
seating capacity of l,r(;0. Close by
on the south is the dairy building,
measuring 100 by 'iCJ feet.
Occupying nearly all of the re
mainder of the main floor will be
the exhibit of cereals and other farm
products from the states of the Un
ion. Kvery state and territory, it is
expected, willjbe represented by its
products. Thus, upon this one vast
floor, covering nearly ten acres, will
be displayed in all their variety and
perfection the pick of the farm pro-
icts of tlie world. It is oelieved
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
nformation that will accouipauy it.
The northern portion of the main
floor of the building will be occu
pied by tne agricultural ana otner
food exhibits of foreign nations,
which, it is already assured, will be
extensive. Great Britain, Germany,
France, Mexico, Austria, Denmark,
Sweden. Japan, Paraguay, Canada,
md a number of other countries
have already been assigned space,
ranging from 1,000 to lb,CJ3 square
feet each. It is expected that the
icrriculural exhibits by these coun
tries will be as comprehensive as
those of our own country, and will
show some features which will be
exceedingly instructive to Ameri-
This great exhibit, or rather array
of exhibits, will be made and ar
ranged in such a systematic mau
ler that the visitor, at a glance can

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

try, from primitive times to the pres
ent. In the trreat 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 exnioit; on tne
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
inn- and tobacco industries, and the
wealth of magnificent exhibits of
flour, meals, breaU, pastry, sugars.
confectionery, canned goods, oils,
soaps, chocolates, etc.

and elaborate exhibits, and one that
will undoubtedly attract the atten

scholar interested in any phase of
agricultural life, will be that maae

west corner of the building, on the
first floor. It will represent the en

experiment station, covering en
tirely the field of experiment and
research in crops, botany, horticul
ture, entomology, feeding stuffs,
animal nutrition, dairy solids, milk
testing and veterinary science, and
will include an elaborate ana com
nlete botanical, biological and
In addition to this, the agricul
tural collerres of the Uttited States
will have, in this apace, a combined
exhibit graphically illustrating the
work and special neia coverea
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
ptit-ttpand conducted by the direc-
m - a a
tors ot tne ainerein agricultural
colleeres of the United States, each
contributing some part of the ex
hibit, the wliole to be installed in a
magnificient manner, at the expense
of the United States government.
This will give to every visitor an
opportunity to witness the methods
by which tne great auvance in ail
phases of agricultural life and
research are carried on in the col
leges and and expirenient stations
of the United States.
Outside the building will be
shown several magnificent exhibits
put up at a great cost, of the irriga
tion systems of the great west. On
the lagoon just south of the annex
to the agricultural building will be
installed traction and portuoie en
gines and a wonderfully interesting
exhibit of windmill machinery.

Most people who go to Europe have
their minds set upon at least one place
or thing whicn they are particularly
anxious to see. This was the case with
a philaiithpjj fc spinster who had lived in
Boston for nearly sixty years. She was

Her sister-in-law and her nieces were
mapping out tne route ior tne six
months' travel and presently one of them
said to her:
"Now you must tell where you want,
to go. Aunt Martha; we're all choosing
our favorite place, you see."
"I've heard you all agree on Italy,
replied Aunt Martha, "and that's the
only country I have any special desire
to visit. - .
"Why, how nice!" said the niece, in a
tone of pleased surprise. "We were
talking it over the other day, and mam
ma said she was afraid you wouldn't care
to go to Italy. You're so fastidious: and
though Italy is lovely of course there
are drawbacks, you know."
"I presume there are drawbacks," said
Miss Martha, shivering a little. "I've
heard of them. But you mustn't think
I want to be sitting about on cathedral
steps or damp walls, my dear. All 1
wish is to see some organ grinders in
their native land. That has been my de
sire for a good many years. The men

"I thought perhaps," added Miss Mar
tha, "if I could learn enough Italian to
make myself understood by those men
it would be a good thing for me to ad
vise them not to come to America."
"I think it would!" said her listeners
in chorus, but Miss Martha never under

"Did you find a cook?" asked the first,
"No. Did you?"
"Yes. I've got one."
"Best I ever had in the house."
"Not Where did you find her?"
"Down in Ohio."
"Have to go after her yourself?"
"How did you happen to hear of her?"
"A friend of mine told me about her
first, and I wrote to her on a venture."
"How did you ever persuade her to
come so far from home?"
"Blessed if I know, but she seems per
fectly well satisfied now."
"Do you think I could get a mate to
her av the same place?"
"Well, no, I think not."
"There isn't another like her, I should

"Oh," said the other man, and when

times, and his wife really seemed to

Good the Earthworm Does.
"The earthworm performs a very im
portant part in the economy of nature,"
said Professor Ernest Parker, of Nash
ville. "The little creature is the worst
despised of all animal life, but from dis
coveries of my own, after long and pa
tient investigation, he has gained my
respect, and I want to extend to him
assurances of my most distinguished
consideration. I have found out that

toll very nine oi veyetnuou wouiu grow

"He does more than the plowshare to
disturb the latent heat and moisture of
the earth and bring them to the top soil
to vitalize and invigorate the struggling
roots of the grasses, grains and other
forms of vegetatiuu. But for hfan great
stretches of the western agricultural
lands would become vast deserts. There
fore, all hail to the earthworm and bad
luck to the man who thinks he is fit only
for fish bait!" St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Th Color of Chameleons.
As chameleons become tame they
change color less rapidly, showing the
habit is protective and to render itself
less conspicuous. Indeed the power of
assuming the color of its surroundings
is the only protection these helpless
creatures possess. Mr. S. D. Bairstow
informs me that he was watching a cha
meleon on a shrub when a wild bee or
two came out of a nest close by, and im
mediately the chameleon doffed its
bright green dress and became nearly
black, and therefore inconspicuous.
Their turning white at night may find
reason in the predominance of shining
foliage in the South African trees. The
leaves of most trees and shrubs glisten
under the bright stars and the moon
light and so appear white. A chameleon,
without reasoning on cause and effect,
sees bright white leaves and imitates
them. Cor. Forest and Stream.
Waiters on Horseback.
In great French houses dinner was
announced by the blowing of hunting
horns, and it is on record that at certain
gala feasts the dishes were brought in
by servants in full armor, mounted uion
caparisoned horses, a practice we could
only look for during the reign of chiv
alry. Of the attendents at dinner the
carver and server took precedence over
all the others; they stood probably on
each side of their lord. The server, it
may be mentioned, was the officer who
placed the dishes on the table. London

An Astute Land Granner.
One f( the most loftv and ambitious
grabbers in the state of Montana was
not long ago observed to be engaged in
a most mysterious business. He was
taking women out into the wilderness, a
stage load or two at a time. They were
very reputable women school teachers,
typewriters, married women, end their
friends. They were taken to a large and
pleasantly situated house, upon the pre
text that they were to attend a ball and
a dinner and get $100 as a present. It
all proved true. Excursion party after
excursion party went out in this way,
and when the ladies returned to the town
that had thus been pillaged of its beauty
they reported that they had fared upon
venison and wild fowl, with the very
vest of "fixings," and that at the ball a
number of stalwart and dashing cow
boys had become their partners, tripping
their light fantastic measures with ar
enthusiasm which made up for any lac t
of grace that may have been noticed.
The 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! But while those women
were in the thick of this pleasure they
each signed a formal claim to a home
steader's rights in the lands thereabout.
And as they "prove up" those claims in
the fullness of time each will get her
$100. The titles to the land will then
be made over to the ingenious inventors
and backers of the schemt, and the land
will be theirs. "Thus," in the language
of a picturesque son of Montana, "a fel
low can get a dukedom if he wants it."
This is an absolutely true account of the
conquest of a valley in Montana, and
the future historian of our country will
find much else that is akin to it. and
that will make an interesting chapter in
his records. Julian Ralph in Harper's.
Carrying the Mail In Wyoming.
A thrilling story of adventure and
peril comes from Johnson county, Wy.,
the seat of the late cattle war. During
the entire winter Contractor Stringer
has been unable to carry the mail across
the Big Horn mountains from Buffalo to
Ten Sleep. In the belief that the sum
mer season was sufficiently advanced to
allow the trip to be made, he started
from Buffalo on a strong saddle horse
and with four mules packed with mail
pouches. Twenty-five miles of haid
traveling landed Stringer at an emer
gency cabin with his stock completely
played out. Here he placed some mail
on a toboggan, and strapping on a pair
of snowshoes made another start for Ten
In about fifteen miles one of the snow
shoes was broken. The nearest haven
was Stringer's own ranch, twelve mile
distant. He was five days getting to it.
Most of the way he crawled on his hands
and knees. With hunger and exposure
he was all but dead. Resting three days
at his ranch, and making a new shoe,
Springer returned to the station for the
abandoned stock and mail, and in a week
went through to Ten Sleep. He returned
to Buffalo, Wy., May 1. Omaha Bee.
