The Exposition Started on the
Road to Success.
The 11th of June Has Been Set
Apart as Hawaiian Day All
the Bailding-s Ready.
fWesVly Circular Letter-No. .
The semi-official opening of the Cali
fornia Midwinter International Exposi
tion took place on the 1st ot January,
according to the original announcement.
Owing to the delay caused in shipping
foreign exhibits from Chicago, it was
understood, of course, that everything
would not be in readiness on that date,
tut the buildings were completed, a
fcreat many of the concessional feature
were in full operation, and the Exposi
tion was practically started on the road
to success.
The day could not have been more
beautiful if it had been made to order.
Eastern people visiting California for
the first time went into ecstacies over a
New Years Day so much like the grand
est April day in other parts of the world.
There were flowers blooming on eyery
hand, and the deep green foliage formed
a striking background for the gala day
costumes of the thousands of ladies who
thronged Golden Gate Park until the
lun went down. Early on this beautiful
midwinter morning flags were hoisted
on each and every flagstaff on the build
ings and in and about the Exposition
grounds; there were concerts during the
day by the great Midwinter Fair band,
and thousands of people availed them
selves of the opportunity to view the
buildings and to witness the speciul at
tractions which were offered.
Among the concessions which opened
op ou New Year's Day were the Santa
Burbara sea lion exhibit, Boone's wild
animal arena, the Ostrich farm, Heidel
berg castle, the Vienna Prater, the Col
orado gold mine, the Japanese Garden,
the Scenic Railway, and a great many
others. The Santa Barbara sea lions
will evidently prove to be one of the
great drawing cards of the Exposition.
This is one of the entirely new features
one that was not seen at Chicago.
Those who witnessed the performance
in the wild animal arena, and who had
seen the siniiliar performance on the
Midway Plaisance iu Chicago, say that
Boone's show rivals Hagenbeck'B in every
particular, and surpassess it iu many.
The scenio railway did a remarkable
business; the crowds in fact being greater
than could be easily accommodated.
The Ostrich farm was also well patron
ized, while Heidelberg and Vienna were
full of visitors all day long. These con
cessionaires, as well as others not speci
fied in this connection, are very well sat
isfied with their start, uud feel confident
that when the Exposition gets in run
ning order, their dearest hopes in the
line of money making will be realized.
Notwithstanding the fact thut there
were no speciul attractions of a general
nature provided for this semi-official
opening day, there were about 10,000
people who paid for admission to the
grounds. The price of admission is only
25 cents as yet, the 50 cent rate will not
be established until the official ceremon
ial opening. The date when the open
ing ceremonies will take place has. not
yet been definitely fixed. It will prob
ably be about the 15th or 20th of this
month. It will depend largely upon the
rapidity with which exhibits arrive and
are installed. All the buildings are
ready, and a great many exhibits lire
now lieing arranged, but it will be fully
the middle of the month before every
thing will be in readiness.
When the gland day of ceremonial
opening comes, there will be an elaborate
program of exercises, in which all the
tate, municipal und federal officials of
f the Pacific Coast will participate.
The merchants and residents of San
Francisco are making extensive prepara
tions to decorate their stores and resi
dences and the Exposition will hav? the
grandest "send off" ever accorded to any
enterprise in this part of the world.
There have been received by the chief
of the Department of Publicity and Pro
motion a great many queries in regard
to editorial courtesies which are to be
extended during the Exposition. Some
of the querists seem to fancy that the
Exposition will, in some way, arrange
for railway transportation for visiting
editors. This, however, is not the case.
The Exposition management has nothing
to do with transportation, but every ed
itorial visitor to San Francisco, upon
presentation of credentials to the Depart
ment of Publicity and Promotion, will
be provided with a pass to the Exposi
U m during the term of his stay in San
Francisco. Visiting editors may rest
assured, therefore, that they will lie
taken care of in this regard, and that
any other courtesy which it is possible
for the Exposition management to ex
tend to them will be gladly accorded.
Monday, the Itth of June, is the day
that has been set apart as "Hawaiian
Day," and that occasion will bs taken
advantage of for the making of a special
effort in the way of a general entertain
ment in which the Hawaiian concession
sires will piny the part of hosts. A part
of the program will consist of a parade
by the entire foreign contingent, headed
by the Hawaiian uational band of forty
pieces, which was formally the Royal
bond of Honolulu. Among other feu
lures of the day will lie a horse race
with female riders, sitting astride, as b
the native custom. There "will also bt
native field sports, including feuciug,
lar throwing and hcola dancing. On
Waikiki la$n, within the Hawaiian
village enclivnre, there will be a com
prehensive exhibition of aquatic sports.
The event of the day, however, will be a
luau, or native feast, to which the offic
ials of the fair, the imtuicipal officer,
the press, and others will be invited.
Gurtda will tit on mats and eat from a
table a foot and a half from the ground.
Roast pig and baked dog, cooked in ti
leaves, broiled devil fish, and a large
number of other Indian fish also cooked
in leave, native fruits and, of course,
pot" with every course, will be some of
the items of the menu. It will require
about a week of prepartiou to properly
get up a luau, and cooks and provisions
are to be specially imported from the
Hawaiian Ialauda for this treat.

Cows Xeed Watering Twice a
Day in the Winter.
A Man Should Xot Condemn a Thing
Until He Hag at Least Given
It a Trial-Pointers.
Cold-storage butter keeps best at a
temperature of about 20 degrees.
Color doesn't make the cow give milk.
Weigh the milk and test it in order to
judge of her worth.
Theoretically cows need watering twice
a day in winter, but in practice once a
day seems to be just as good.
Feed cows twice a day only twice.
Let them chew the cud well between
meals. They are built that way.
Wash and cook the potatoes that are
too small for market or for table use.
They are good for pigs or chickens.
Churn cream from strippers at a high
temperature in some cases as high as
70 degrees. The butter fat needs soften
ing. An exchange savs bran fed to cows
makes the cream harder to churn and
requires longer for the operation. It
works the other way for us.
Picking the potatoes over and remov
ing the rotten ones about once a month
during the winter will lessen the loss
from that source. Look after them once
before the holidays.
During the long winter evenimrs mm-h
of the theoretical knowledge of agricult
ure can do acquired. UDtain a few of
the best books on the subjects in which
you are specially interested, and read
them carefully and thoughtfully.
Lose no time now in making every
thing secure for winter. See that the
crops are properly stored, as it does not
pay to grow a thing and then let it spoil
before getting to market. One thing
that we would call attention to is that
you keep the potatoes from the light. A
dark, cool, dry place is what they want.
A man should not condemn a thing
until he has at least given it a trial. We
have observed that those who sneer at
intensive cultivation, extra heavy ma
nuring, etc., are the men who have never
attempted to practice them. A trial of
these methods is very apt to give one
some respect for them. SupHse you
make a little experiment in this direc
tion next season.
Double cropping is a matter that the
majority of farmers do not see their way
toward practicing. But- where it can be
done it is a pretty certain way in which
to increase the earnings of the land.
Crops must be used which do not require
a long season for maturing, and you must
make up your mind to apply enough
manure to counteract the extra drain
made upon the land.
Barnyard manure is ordinarily looked
ujion as a general and complete manure,
and in the sense of supplying the most
needed elements of plant food this is
true. Yet it seldom, if ever, contains
these plant food ingredients iu the pro
portions which have been found to give
the best results. Farmyard manure con
tains (according to the animal and the
food consumed) from .4 to .8 per cent of
nitrogen, .2 to .4 per cent of phosphoric
acid, .3 to .6 per cent of potash ; practi
cally twice as much phosphoric acid and
considerably more than of potash. This
is too nitrogenous for a well-balanced
fertilizer, and any one using barnyard
manure does well therefore to use acid
phosphate and potash salts in addition.
Farm manures usually deficient in pot
ash, such as those produced from corn
meal, silage and stover, and hay from
the grasses generally, and especially
when fed with nitrogenous food, should
always be applied in conjunction with
fertilizers containing larger amounts of
potash and phosphoric acids. A still
better plan is to sprinkle these materials
in the stable and upon the dung heap,
and thus a double benefit is obtained by
preventing the escape of ammonia from
'the manure. Potash salts are especially
soluble in this respect, and when so used
no leaching must under any circum
stances be allowed, as thev will be easily
washed out of the pile to the detriment
of the manure.
The following comes from the Ontario
experiment station : Sometimes it is not
easv to convince the farmers that raising
and fattening lambs is a good-paying
business when the conditions are favor
able, but the following piece of experi
ence at our station will tend to show the
possibilities that lie in that direction. In
the autumn of 1891 we purchased two
carloads of lambs in Prince Edward Isl
and, 1,150 miles eastward from Guelph,
Ontario, wheie the station is located.
Some of these we fattened and sent back
again to Halifax, within 100 miles of
where they were bought, leaving us a
substantial cash profit at the same time
over all expenses. Some ol them we fed
until May, and were then shipped by us
to Liverpool and sold. Thev cost us $2
per head when purchased, and averaged
$11.60 per head at the Liverpool docks.
After charging all expenses whatsoever
we had a nice little cash profit on the
Iambs, not counting in the manure, al
though we had paid the expenses of
their transit a distance of not less than
5,000 miles. .
A Ellrntwan flTnanniant In
dairy cows shows that cows always in
incir stables gave much better results
w hen changed back where thev could get
water twice a day. It was found that
