SALEM. Or.. Sept. 30. (Special.)
The laurels of Benton County, five
times winner of the contest for the
best county exhibit at the State Fair,
were lowered today, when Douglas
County captured the prize for 191S. But
Benton was not" disgraced, for it ran
Douglas such a close second that W. K.
Newell, president of the State Horti
cultural Board, who was the judge, had
a. difficult time in determining which
county deserved first honor. Long
golden ears of corn artistically ar
ranged in a canopy above the booth
turned the scales in favor of Douglas,
after the judge had almost despaired
of making a decision. The Douglas
County exhibit was gathered and ar
ranged by C W. Cross, of Roseburg.
Clackamas County,, which was sec
ond last year, running Benton a close
race for the honor, received third prize,
Washington County won fourth. Linn
fifth, Tillamook sixth and PolK
Germans Hare Big Day.
This was German day at the fair,
and the Germans of this and adjacent
counties certainly made the most of it.
There were those from the Fatherland,
those born in this country, but now
past a half century in years, and the
children, of course. The visitors were
entertained at lunch by the local Ger
man society, and soon after all of
them, wearing red badges, were en
Joying the sights at the fair. It was
the most successful second day of the
association, more than 7000 people hav
ing taken advantage of the fine weath
er to see the great exhibition.
Mr. Newell announced after making
the county awards that they were
made according to the rules of the
board. He said 15 points had been al
lowed for field products, 15 for grain,
15 for all orchard products, 30 for qual
ity and 10 for arrangement.
"Benton's arrangement was best,"
continued Mr. Newell, "but Douglas'
remarkable exhibit of corn turned the
scale in her favor. Not including the
corn, the exhibits were of equal merit.
Marion Exhibit Magnificent.
"Marion County had a magnificent
exhibit, but it was not entered in the
contest. Because the fair is held here
she does, not compete, but every year
comes 'forward with an exhibit that is
a credit to the county."
The Judging of cattle, swine and
sheep is nearing completion, and the
lists probably will be made public to
morrow. The O.-W. R. & N. 175 tro
phy for the best sire for breeding beef
cattle was won by A. D. Dunn, of Wa
pato, Wash., with Imperial 336907. In
the Galloway cattle class L. G. WeBley,
of Freeman, won the grand bull cham
pionship with Babin Wesley, and the
grand championship for a female was
won by Delos Wesley, of Freewater,
with Princess. In the Holstein division
AV. K. Newell's Model King ' won the
bull grand championship, and his Louis
Korndyke won the bull Junior cham
pionship. For females, C. S. Magee's Cedai
View Sabra won the grand champion
ship. Albion L. Gile. of Chinook, Wash.,
, captured the grand bull championship
for Guernseys with King of Neofield.
He also captured the Junior champion
ship with Sunderland's Traveler. The
grand bull championship for Jerseys
wag won by Isaac E. Staples, of Port
land, with Gerties Goldle, and the
Junior championship was captured by
John B. Stump & Son, of Monmouth,
with Nobles Double, of Fair Acres.
Gresham Man Wins.
W. N. Cleveland, of Gresham, won the
prize for the champion Shropshire ewe,
and Frank Brown, of Carlton, was
awarded the honor for the champion
ram. F. A. Koser, of Rickreall, cap
tured the championship for Cotswold
rams and also for ewes.
R, W. Hogg, of Salem, was awarded
the championship for Poland China
boars, and Thomas Brunk, of Salem,
for sows. For boars bred by the ex
hibitor, Herbert Willard, of Dayton,
was the winner, and Thomas W. Brunk,
of Salem, won the championship for
sows bred by the exhibitor. - J. W.
Fruit, of Brooks, captured the cham
pionship for Duroc Jersey boars and
sows. G. M. Harvey, of Salem, won
the prize for the best boar bred by
"The Jersey cow exhibit at the fair
is one of the best I have ever seen,"
declared Hugh G. Vanpelt, Judge of
them, tonight. "I have attended fairs
all over the country in the capacity of
Judge; and I must say I have seen no
better Jerseys than are here. I was
here two years ago and am qualified
to note the great improvement that has
been made in that time. The fair com
pares favorably with any in the United
States and is far superior to most of
Children's Exhibits Judged.
The Judging in the children's indus
trial department, which is one of the
most interesting at the fair, started
today, the following being the win
ners in bread and butter:
Bread Class A Avis Williams, Sa

and Mary Lebold, Salem, fifth. Francel
Hawley, of McCoy, won the butter con
test. The eugenics department attracted
large crowds again today, and so pop
ular has the department become that
the management of the fair has decided
to erect new and commodious build

Thrown, in Creek After Being Ren

MEDFORD, Or, Sept. 30. (Special.)
Mutilated, beaten into insensibility
and thrown into a creek, Joe Croft, 19
years old, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. W.
Croft, ranchers near Trail, was revived
by the cold water and crawled a quar
ter of a mile to his home, where he
gave the alarm and then fainted.
Deputy Sheriff Wilson, in the absence
of Sheriff William SIngler, started out
on the case, but at a late hour tonight
had made no arrests.
Croft declared he was hunting deer
and was standing behind a tree just
drawing a bead on a buck when he
heard a sound behind him, but before
he could turn the blow was struck,
and when he regained consciousness he
was sitting upright in the creek.
The young man admitted he had had
trouble with a neighbor, but said he
knew someone else attacked him. His
purse, in which he declared there was
$2, was found near a tree by the creek
empty, and a club covered with blood
was also found. Mutilations on the
boy's body had been inflicted with a
In spite of persistent questioning by
Deputy Sheriff Wilson neither members
of the boy's family nor neighbors
threw any light on the attack. Accord

"WALLA "WALLA, "Wash., Sept. 30.
(Special.) J. H. Bobbins, general man
ager of the distributors, who was In
the city today, said that the organiza
tion of the North Pacific Fruit Distrib
utors will mean the addition of more
than $1,000,000 to the value of the fruit
crop of the Northwest this season. Mr.
Bobbins tonight went to Milton to
attend a meeting of the fruitgrowers
of that section.
"The policy of the organization,
which is proving; to be a successful one,
is to keep fruit on a market where
prices are increasing rather than on
a market where the prices are on the
decrease," he said. "Heretofore grow
ers and shippers have done everything
In their power to open the season with
high prices. The Eastern buyers knew
such was the policy of the growers
and as a result all of the big buyers
were bears on the market until the
expected decrease in price started."
