You have struck the keynote to the situation. The proper advertisement of the state has been woefully neglected. Instead of getting together and all working for the advancement and prosperity of Nebraska, we devote too much time to wrangling over little petty local affairs that Injure the 'state instead of benefit ing it. We ought to have a concerted movement along the line of advertising the resources of the state. This article of yours and several others that you have written should be pub lished in some of the leading organs of the east. - Respectfully, S. H. BURNHAM, President.

Maupin's Weekly to suggest boosting ideas for' Nebraska and Nebraska institutions that we have grown to expect something new with each issue. The idea of a Seml-Centennial Exposition for Nebraska ia an especially good one. The State Board of Agriculture have been seriously con sidering the changing of the name "Nebraska State Fair" to "Nebraska State Exposition," but we shall now reserve this event for 1917 and hereby assure you and the citizens of Nebraska that this board will make an earnest endeavor to be ready to entertain our citizen ship on the State Grounds should it be thought advisable to hold the exposition there. Every effort will' be made to properly house such an exposition. Yours truly, W. R. MELLOR, Secretary.
