feel convinced that they can convince the ex

for making the display have not yet been

convince the promoters of tbe exposltlea that
a rare treat Is In store.
Commissioners Harte and Hofeldt are re
garded as the agricultural members ot the
county board and to them the other mem
bers look tor unique designs. While these
two men have not yet decided upon just how
they will arrange the agricultural exhibit ,
they have some Ideas that meet with the
approval of all ot the members ot tbe board
end which will bo carried out In every par
The space will extend from floor to celling
and will be covered with grains , seed ? and
grasses. One design will be a map ot tbe
county worked principally In corn. The body
of the map will be In yellow corn , with the
section lines In white. These sections will
bo subdivided , showing the location of the
tittne. Tbo farms will be worked In white
corn , with the farm houses and buildings In
grains of a red color- The streams will bo

original Idea Is carried out , will be about

INSTITUTE FOH INDIAN TEACHERS.
Prof. Hellninnin Prvfero Oninlin to
Colorado Spring * for Mee < lnnr.
Pro ( . W. N. Hellmann , United States su-
> erntendent ! of Indian instruction , was In
ho city yesterday looking for a location ( or
the institute in this line that will occur next
summer. He ID autbbrized to chocso between
3maha and Colorado Springs ( or the mcet-
ng , and on account of the exposition he la
ncllned to Omaha before going any further ,
de cannot commit himself on account of hU
official relations to the government , ' but < Jie
does say that on this particular occasion Le
is willing to/recommend Omaha In prefer
ence to Colorado Springs.
"Thin meeting "will be ( or three \weeks \
after the first of July and it will bo ( or the
advancement of the education ot the In
dians , " said Dr. Hellmann. "There are only
-two places in the country where the con-
grees can be held ; they are Omaha and Col
orado Springs. Such meetings have been
held at Omaha , Ogden and Pueblo. The last
meeting waa held in Omaha last year when
the attendance was about 250. There are
about 1,800 educators connected with the
jovernment's Indian school department , and
I will venture to say that at least one-third
o ( thla whole enrollment o ( Instructors will
attend the ( orthcomlng convention. I will
proceed ( rom here to Colorado Springs under
instructions , but on account of the exposi
tion I think that tbo only place to hold the
convention is In Omaha. Otherwise I cannot
express m > il ( . "
Weather Molten * Arrangement * .
The United States Weather bureau is
making preparations to install an exhibit at
the exposition which will show the prac
tical operation of a department of the
weather service devoted to the investiga
tion of the movements and conditions of
the upper titrata of the atmosphere. That
this is the intention of the bureau was set
forth In a letter received by President Wat
tles ( rom Charles K. Roblneon , in charge
of the aerial observations of tbo bureau.
Mr. Robinson asks ( or space on which to
locate a small building about twelve ( eet
equare , which Should be surrounded by an
open space about 300 ( eet square. In this
epace it is proposed to fly the huge kites
which narry into the upper strata o ( the air
the instruments used ( on recording the con
ditions of those regions.
These Inctrurcentn are generally of the
self-recording pattern and Indicate the tem
perature and humidity of the upper - atmosphere
phere , the direction and velocity of the wind
and various other data of value in the formu
lation of weather forecasts.
The epace desired ( or this purpose will
be supplied by the exposition management
and this will add another to 'the already
long list of special exhibits to be made by
the departments of the government outi'ldo '
of tbe Government building.

S. B , Turner of Alnsworth , Neb. , reports
hat northern Nebraska Is In a very flourlsh-
ng condition. That portion ot the state Is
crgely devoted to cattle and sheep raising
ind the cattle and sheep markets have not
jeen as good In many years aa they are at
> resent. Mr. Turner eays that the advance
n the prlco of sheep has been pbcaomenal ,
sheep bringing from $1.50 to $2 more per
lead than they did three years ago. Mr.
Turner thinks , however , that sheep are not
apt to continue so strong In price , because
so many ara being rataed , and the fact that
: hey mature in one year leads dealers to
hlnk that tbe demand will soon be sup-
> lled. Not so wltb cattle , cs tbreo years are
equlred to get a steer ready for the mar-
cet. The ranges In northern Nebraska are
n flne condition and the stockmen are ex
pecting a good grass crop.
