assured, arrangements for '".he big

crowds promised, the Ml:
fcnnnal Walla Walla county fair and
race meetlsg will open Slonday, Sep
tember 18. Never before in the history
of the association has all indications
been for a more successful week, and
probably nevtr before has Secretary
R. H. Johnson been able to secure such
a list of stellar attractions. The
Parker Amusement company, one o!
the biggest carnival companies in tbs
Uniud States, will furnish amuse-1
meats for the thousands, while Ruzzi s
famous Italian orchestra will give af
ternoon and T-:nlng- concerts of an
exceptionally bigh grade; v
The latest attraction booked is
Miss Tina, who will give triple para
chute drops each day of the week,
descending in thrilling fashion from
dizzy heights, using three parachutes
to reach terra flrina. Cn the turf, the
six day relay race will probably be the
big feature, many expert riders with
good stiags of horses having enter
ed the contest. , On Wednesday after
noon will be given ihe 2:15 pace which
is for a purs-3 of 15,000. while other
dayof the big week will have equally
as attractive drawing cards.
Monday is to be children's day, when
the youngsters from all parts of the
county are to be guests of the aasc:
elation. Each day is to b-3 set apart
for some special delegation, thus glv

"El Csmllo," at Wsst Point, a Rlio of
: 1 ths Mexican Wsr.
Among the old gnn from past wnrx
on Trophy point there is one that is
fondly remembered by every Ki-ndunte
of the West Tolut Military academy:
It Is "El Camllo." literally "the camel."
a relic of the Mexican war, but datintt
fur buck of thut.
This nntiqmited piece of ordnance,
which l three mrti silver and pnlnted
a light (rreen, bears its oame und the
royal cout of arms of Spain over, an
inscription relntlux that it was thi
property of the regiment of the Golden
Fleece, commissioned under Ferdinand
and tsubella at the time when Colum
bus set out on bis famous voydge to
discover a new world. ; " It would be
interesting to know what the Spanish
grandees would have thought if they
could hare foreseen that the very can
non! which probably thundered god
speed to the explorer would one day be
captured by the unborn nation of the
undiscovered continent to which Co
lumbus was bound. Tbc ancient jtun
was probably carried to Mexico lis
part of the armament of a Spanish
ship and many years later was pressed
into nenlce iu the . Mexican army,
where the "sinews of war" were al
ways at a premium. It was taken
at Monterey, by the Americans and
sent to West Folnt a the most appro
piinte place for such an Interesting
relic. New York Fress.

Man's Original Shad Is Believed to
Havs Ben a Brownish Yellow The
8ame Forces That Made Men White,
Black and Yellow Still Operating.
Man's original color and tbe cause of
the changes in that color to tbe various
hues that mark the skins of tbe differ
ent races have long been a study
among men of science. ; . .......
The theory of Frof essor Lionel Lyde.
an English scientist, is that, whatever
tbe color of primitive man in the be
ginning, tbe conditions of life during
the glacial period were such that uni
formity of results must have been pro--duced.
Nearly every anthropologist r
ready to admit now a common origin
for ail- mankind. Where man origi
nated is not known very likely in
southern Asia, possibly in Africa, cer
tainly not in Europe, they say. His
original color is supposed to have been
a sort of brownish yellow not like any
of tbe colors of mankind today, and
eHontlvta sll Mnv for th V f
calling him something.: a Condwana.
He Iired In southern latitudes. This.
they think, is certain. Then came
mlgratious. and then. Frofessor Lyde
believes, the variations of color began.
Some turned white, some turned black,
some brown and some yellow, all ac
cording to the climate in which they
found themselves.
Climate : influences worked directly
and indirecfly. In tbe tropics the skin
and the intestines perform work which
in temperate zones is thrown on tbe
lungs. So wben man found himself In
cooler lands the increased activity of
the lungs.' together with the lessened
light and beat, favored lightening of
the skin. When be found himself in
hotter climates the increased activity
of the liver nnd tbe presence of great
light favored a dark skin.
The old theories of race are pretty
well discarded, for men of the same
race, under wittering conditions, would
come to be outwardly very different
Thus even in Africa, which everybody
thinksof a j the land of blacks, black
Is not'al nil the universal color. In
the Sudan, where there ore great light
and little humidity and no shade, the
men are very black. Elsewhere in
Africa, where there are forest, moro
humidity and tess tight, though about
eoii il bent, the color Is brown and even
jttlow. . , ., - - , - - . :

The ruic. t!ie:i. that found n lioaie In
moderate and dnup tiiluis'.tei turned
whiter uud whiter. It is oti'.y lu such
climates thut white skins can endure,
and presumablyif the present white
rate was turned Into u different part
of the world for many hundreds of
years, tbe whiteness of skin ' would
gradually be lost.- Terhups. since the
white man is spreading over the world
to-day. It would be fair to sny it will.
In such cases, be lost, the -whiteness
being retained only In climates that
have the conditions under which the
race was first breached. , !! ''
Intensity of light and little tumidity
made black. Trade winds and little
humidity gave the tinge of brown to
the subtropical Mediterranean people.
Then comes yellow, which Professor
Lyde puts down as the result of "vast
desiccating grass lands" In Intemper
ate latitudes. - ...
The yellow man Is the product of
the grass lauds, with lack of humidity
nnd sensonnl extremes of temperature.
The color n man exposed to such con
ditions would naturally take would be
one which conserves bent nearly as
well ns white, but whicb also projects
from light, for which combination yel
low was the best, or red. The nor
ninl. color of these folk of the grass
lands would be changed by special
local conditions, such as the presence
of mountains or proximity to the sea.
The mountaineers of Asia and the
maritime Mongolians are lighter In
color than their brothers of the Inland
plains. 1 ' '
To Trofessor Lyde, therefore, skin
color is entirely a matter of climate.
It Is a well established phenomenon
now because tbe different portions of
the human race lived segregated for
thousands of years in special arens.
