SALEM, Or., Sept. :9. Hail. Oregon
With more and better exhibits than
ever before, with a record attendance
for the first day, --with perfect weather
and everything In readiness, the State
Fair of 1913 was opened this morning
tinder the most auspicious conditions.
Tlie rush to the grounds Marted early
and at 11 o"clock tonight it was esti
mated that at least 5000 persons had
passed through the gates. There was
not a Jull moment and visitors were
enthusiastic in expressing the opinion:
"It is Oregon's greatest State 1-air.
tell about It all. but in the afternoon
the races and vaudeville acts in front
of the grandstand were the center of
. attraction. The stand was more than
two-thirds filled with men, women and
children, who kept their seats until
the last thrilling- race of the day was
over. Of course the pavilion and the
livestock stables attracted the farmers.
Xlne C'oaatlea In Race.
Nine counties Benton. Douglas,
Washington, Linn. Polk, Clackamas
and Tillamook are fighting it out for
first prize for the best county exhibit.
Benton County, winner of the coveted
honor in 1907. 1908, 1910. 1911 and 1912,
has fairly outdone itself this year.
"Never in the history of the fair has
there been such an elaborate represen
'. tatlon of field and orchard as there is
; here today," said W. K. Newell, presi-
dent of the State Board of Horticulture.
"Of course it has been customary to
" say this of all state fairs." observed O.
E. Freytag, superintendent- ot the pa
vilion and manager of the horticultural
department, "but this Is really the
greatest display toy long odds. There is
. not a loot of space in tne pavilion un
occupied by exhibits. It will be a dif
ficult matter to determine which county
. Is deserving of first honor."
Judging of livestock was started at
1 o'clock and the Judges said tonight
they had made fair headway, but it
would take several days to complete
the work. The finest specimens of
horses, sheep, hogs and cattle in the
state are on display.
130 Bablea Jodced.
Two departments are deserving of
special praise the eugenics contest
and the children's industrial depart
ment About 130 babies were judged
" today, and it is believed that at least
"' 00 will be Judged before the blue rlb
- bon is awarded. The babies are being
examined by Dr. J. M. Waugh, of Hood
River, to see if they are suffering from
contagious diseases before admittance.
Dr. Mary V. Madigan is in charge of
the department, and O. M. Plummer is
acting in an advisory capacity.
That the school children of Oregon
are making great headway in manual
training, domestic science, agriculture,
horticulture and poultry raising Is
proved by the exhibit in a temporary
building at the rear cf the pavilion.
" E. F. Carleton says the exhibit is twice
as large as the one last year and far
superior in every way. There seems
to be nothing in the way of furniture,
garments, ' canning, preserving, etc.,
that the children are unable to do.
One boy has built a windmill capable
of pumping a small stream of water.
Mr. Carleton says that never before
have the county superintendents and
suprvisors given such aid, and that the
management of the fair has assisted in
every possible way. The exhibits will
be Judged tomorrow.
One of the exhibits that attracts at
tention is that of Mrs. L- Foster, of
this city, who has had a display an
nually for 23 years. She has a display
of too Jars of fruits, each canned, jel
lied or preserved by a different method.
