CRESHASt Or.. Sept. II. (Special.)
The weather was ail that anybody
could have wished, the crowd being
one of the largest ever attending a
Multnomah County i air. The exhibit
In practically all lines were exception
ally good and the interest in all de
partments was strong;. Altogether, the
fair, which closed today, was a triumph,
a record and report of progress for the
The war, of course, had something to
do with the success of the fair this
year. The Importance of food and all
that makes for the production of food
is generally realized as It never was
before, and In all the departments of
the fair this year and in all the gather
ings of men and women for display and
discussion of things and subjects agri
cultural there was always present the
great war topic and what it all means.
Fair officials say without hesitation
that the display this year of agricul
tural producta was the best ever seen
at Gresham. and as a consequent It is
no small part that Multnomah County
this year will play at the State Fair
at Salem the coming week. In cereals
of all kinds Including corn, which only
a few years ago. it was said, could not
profitably be grown in Oregon pota
toes and all manner of vegetable crops,
fruits of all descriptions, livestock of
all classes and industrial exhibits gen
erally. Multnomah County clearly out
did all previous efforts.
Oregaa Predicts -Compared.
' In the great exhibit hall there was
wheat that -would have done credit to
the great Red River country, corn that
would vie with anything Illinois could
produce, and potatoes and other vege
table products that were unsurpassable.
In livestock there was the keenest in
terest. Thoroughbred stock was in
evidence as never before, making it
clear that In that section of Industry
Oregon is advancing. The Industrial
displays throughout were such as to
inspire pride in the achievements of
the county.
Throughout the three days exhibition
the Granges of the county manifested
the keenest Interest in the displays.
Their exhibits were on the ground floor
of the main exposition building and the
rivalry of their respective booths was
one of the interesting features of the
event. In their displays alone there
was almost a county fair, and the part
they have played makes it clear that
the Granges are a factor in the county's
In the final award for excellence of
displays Multnomah Grange won first
place, with Kairview second and Kui
' sellville third.
Sraeal Management Awake.
That the schools of the county are a
great and growing factor in the annual
county exposition was made more evi
dent this year than ever before. On
the second floor of the main building
there were the booths representing
schools In all parts of the county and
showing In detail the school work
proper of the children, together with
their industrial, art and other work,
altogether giving evidence that the
schools and the management of the
school system of the county are alive
to opportunities and responsibilities.
In all the schools of the county yortng
farmers and young Industrial workers
who some day will be captains and
masters in their lines are getting in
the groundwork of preparation now,
while girls are becoming proficient in
sewing, domestic science and a doxen
other lines of effort that will make for

Use Coco&nut Oil
for Washing Hair
If you want to keep your hair in good
condition, be careful what you wash it
Most soaps and prepared shampoos
contain too much alkali. This dries the
scalp, makes the hair brittle and is very
harmful. Just plain mulsifled cocoanut
oil (which is pure and entirely grease
less) is much better than the most ex
pensive soap or anything; else you can
use for shampooing, as this can't pos-
Ibly Injure the. hair.
Simply moisten your hair with water
nd rub it in. One or two teaspoonfuls
ill make an abundance of rich, creamy
lather, and clesnses the balr and scalp
thoroughly..The lather rinses out easily.
nd removes every particle of dust.
rt, dandruff and excessive oil. The
air dries quickly and evenly, and It
leaves it fine and silky, bright, fluffy
and easy to manage.
You can get mulsifled cocoanut oil at
most any drug store. It is very cbeap,
and a few ounces Is enough to last
everyone in th family for months.
