In collecting an exhibit, of
grain, grasses, vegetables and
fruits for exhibition purposes, it
is not only important to have
good material but it is equally
important to have the same care
fully selected and properly pre
pared. The best exhibition ma
terial may be entirely ruined by
being poorly put up and impro
perly packed and as a result, ar
riving at destination worthless.
It is necessary to permit the
grain to ripen in order that it
may show the natural color of
maturity. Grain which is select
ed before it is ripe never loses
the greenish cast and never
makes an attractive exhibit. It
is of equal importance that the
grain, be not allowed to become
too ripe so that it shells out in
selecting and shipping.
After selecting grain, spread
out on boards in a shady place,
leave this way for a couple of
days so that it will dry enough
to prevent molding in bundles.
Then place in bundles not less
than four inches in diameter be
low the heads when tied. There
are no objections to having it
put up in larger bundles with the
exception that it is almost im
possible to cure it properly. The
grain should be cut close to the
ground so as 10 show the extreme
length. Also some grain should
be pulled up by the roots as this
is proven to be a very attractive
way of exhibiting grain in the
straw, but of course, only a small
per cent of the grain should be
allowed to retain the roots.
It has been found in preparing
exhibits of alfalfa- and clover
that it is very difficult to re-ar
range a bundle after it has been
cured, without destroying a,great
many of the leaves and other
wise detracting from its value.
In selecting alfalfa and clover
it is advisable, wherever possi
ble, to even up the ends of the
stalks and sort out some of the
culls while it is yet green. In
this way it is possible to put up
a very attractive bundle of alfal
fa or clover and let it cure in the
bundle and exhibit it without
losing but a very few of the
leaves. It should b'e tied in
bundles about three inches in
diameter at the base.
Alfalfa stalks with the roots
on are especially attractive for
exhibition purposes as alfalfa
has not yet ceased to be a novel
ty to the Eastern people and they
are always interested to see how
it grows, but only a small per
cent, of the exhibit should con
sist of alfalfa with the roots.
Before arranging in bundles,
spread out for a couple of days
in a perfectly dark and ventilated
place so that it will dry enough
to prevent - molding. After ar
ranging in- bundles, hang in the
dark as the light bleaches it out.
It is always advisable to cure
grains and grasses in the shade
in order to retain he deep rich
color, which it is impossible to
do in the sun. Do not place in a
close room where there is no air
circulation as grain or grasses
will mold before it cures and
thereby render it worthless.
In selecting potatoes it is al
ways of the greatest importance
that only smooth potatoes of
good color and as large as possi
ble be selected. The finest potato
display however does not always
consist of the largest potatoes,
but there is nothing that attracts
more attention at land shows and
on exhibition cars than fine large

munity spirit was demonstrated
toaremarkabieextent by Oregon
cities at the recent Elks conven
tion in this city. This was one
of the most noticeable features
of the gathering. The various
places where Elks lodges exist
made a surprisingly good show
ing in the big Elks parade that
opened wide the eyes of Port-
landers and of visitors.
Those who have believed Ore
gon to be a state with one city
changed their minds when they
saw the parade and the long
column of Elks from the four
corners of the state sweep along
Portland's streets. The active
support, of the state cities made
the parade the big success it
proved. The occasion further
proved how much Portland relies
on its friends in the interior in
accomplishing any really big
Tillman Reuter, who makes
grain grow on the semi-aria
lands of Central Oregon where
none grew before, does not want
any one to overlook the forth
coming International Dry Farm
ing Congress to be held at Leth-
bridge, Alberta, October 21-26.
He is collecting exhibits of
the products Oregon grows by
dry-farming, and, as usual, ex
pects to win the leading prizes
with products of Oregon dry
farms. He has got into the
habit of winning firsts for this
state and expects to repeat his
success -this year.
Preliminary plans are going
forward for making the Pacific
Northwest Land Products Show,
to be held in Portland November
18-23, the biggest and most suc
cessful land show ever given
west of the Rocky Mountarins.
rhe management is getting in
touch with commercial bodies
and individual exhibitors of the
territory to be represented and
promises of liberal support are
being received. Every district
of the Northwest states has an
opportunity in this "dirt show"
for valuable exploitation.
Oregon and Washington nurs
erymen, at their meeting just
held, determined to wage a vi
gorous camnaitrn for members
during the coming year, so that
when the American Association
of Nurserymen meets in Port
land next June, the visitors will
be met by strong delegations
from the two Northwest states.
It is hoped to swell the enroll

Association of Nursery to 500

exhibits have taken front rank
wherever they have been shown,
including the greatest land pro
duct shows that have ever been
held in the history of agricul
ture. It has been able to attain
this enviable position by reason
of the splendid co-operation of
the individuals and commercial
bodies along its lines.
The season of 1912 and 1913
will mark a new epoch in agri
cultural and horticultural exhi
bits from the Northwest in the
Eastern states and it is only by
the continued co-operation of
friends along the line that the
Great Northern will be able to
meet and compete successfully
with the best that is produced in
any part of the world.

not the goods to show you have
no right to advertise."
