Dairy Exhibit at the State Fair
kT Is not always the bts things
at the Nebraska state fair
that Interest the most peo
ple. This is evidenced' by the
large crowds that gather In
and around the dairy exhibit.
the fish exhibit, the bee exhibit, and the
educational, fine arts and woman's de
partment. Dairy hall always presents an Interest
ing exhibit. Probably the one thing on
tl)e fair grounds which attracts the most
attention is found in the dairy hall.
Each" year the biggest creamery com
pany in the country has on exhibition
some kind of a figure made entirely
from butter. One- year It was a 'life
size cow with a dairy maid In attendance.
Each year it Is something different, and
whatever " It may be, . it catches the
crowd and is the real topic of conver
sation around the dairy exhibit All kind
of articles interesting to those who are
engaged 'in dairying can be found In the
building and take It all around the dairy
hall is one- of the places a state fair
visitor should not miss.
Close to the dairy hall Is the fish ex
hibit. All kinds of the finny tribe can
be seen there in their element. Big
fish and little fish;, medium sized "fish
and all sized ''flan, from the little gold
pet of the glass globe, to the big ' cat
fish from the muddy Missouri, There
will be found the ugljr mud turtle
and the slimy eel, the pretty rainbow
trout and the common every day sun
fish and bull head. ( In fact every kind
of fish that abounds In the fresh waters
of the west can be seen at the .fish
Frank O. Odell and his bees are another
exhibit which always .attracts many
visitors. Mr. Odell and his thousands of
pets are always on good terms.' How
he can handle them as he does without
getting In contact with the business end
of the little buzzers is more than most
people .can comprehend. .But. he does it
j Just the same and several times a day
1 he goes into the cage and turns a swarm
of the little creatures loose and they
seem to enjoy crawling over his face
and body and never appear to harm him.
This Is a portion of the attractions at

the jair it is not well to.; miss.
Everybody will be interested In the
place where domestic products are on ex
hibition. Pie, cake, anei:,eake. devil
food, canned goods and everything else
that has been produced . by the thrifty
housewife to tempt man's appetite and
sometimes ruin his digestion is always
found In this department. While the
suffragettes may spend their time talk
ing about the rights of women, there are
yet enough of, the old. fashioned women
left who feel that it Is 'still a good thlnff
to know bow to cook and cook well. The
old saying that "the way to a man's
heart is by way of his stomach," seems
to hold good and if any one may judge
by the thousands of tempting things
made by the t good woman who place
them on exhibit In the state fair, man
Is not yet out of danger from a matri
monial standpoint, though some ' of the
gentler aex are gentle no more and have
forsaken the kitchen and cook stove for
politics and the public stage. All honor
to the grand, noble mother who Instructs
her daughter that It Is better to put on
exhibition samples of her cooking at the
state fair than to place herself on ex
hibition on the atreeta of the city. Do
not fall to visit the domestlo depart
ment when you go to the fair and see
the thousands of pretty things pre
pared by the splendid cooks of Nebraska.
Now we coma to the woman's depart
ment with all Its fine work. A man
ought not to be expected to know what
to say when writing of the work to be
seen In this department When we at
tempt to describe those things we get
tangled up In the crochet work, em
broidery, drawn work, lace and other
filigree stuff, and can hardly recover our
breath enough to tell of it However,
