chon, wherein many labor and time
saving methods for both the city and
farm hoiisewifo will be demonstrated.

that of the soil crop. A large map
of Nebraska, made from tho soil of
different sectlc-ns, has been prepared
to show Just which soil is especially
adapted -for farming and' what sec
tions need'special attention. The ex
perience of-. the, university school is
that gradually land is becoming ex
hausted and" the farmer must now be
educated to moro scientific farming.
The. attention of crops will be ex
plained and- how the soil should he
treated "to -prevent " Its decay.'"- Tho
seases of other crops, together with
specimens of the crops affected. Large
drawings of different plants and crops
will complete the botany exhibit.
' With hard work by tho students In
the mechanical department the ex
hibit will bo complete. Those In
charge are working hard to make it
a pronounced success.

it. An inscription gives his record,
