A traveling man asserted Tues
day that grain sacks are going to be
worth ten cents each before harvest
is over this year, and Pays that it
will be hard to get them at. that
price. He bases his statement on
the fact that the supply was largely
destroyed in San " Francisco, and
that the material which is manu
factured abroad cannot now be
gotten to the United States and
made into sacks in time for the har
vest, especially in California, where
the grain harvest comes in July. It
is affirmed that even second hand
grain sacks wifl be in demand, and
all having them should not destroy
a single one.

A pamphlet containing the
premium list and regulations is
in the hands of the printer and
five hundred copies of the same
will be mailed in a few days.
At the present high prices, no
exhibition ought to attract more
attention than a show of good
horses, and of these notwithstand
ing the constant" drain toward
the cities, Benton and adjoining
counties still have enough to
make a magnificent exhibit if
they are brought together. In
the stallion class Corvallis . is
favored with an especially fine
lot of animals this spring. The
roadsters would be hard to beat
in any prize ring,' and all the
prominent draft breeds are rep
resented by unusually fine speci
mens of their class.
A great deal of interest in the
show will doubtless center
around the black percheron stal
lions brought here . by T. K.
Fawcett one of which has been
sold to a company of farmers.
Both are fine animals and the
competition of their colts in the
show will' make a very pretty
contest. Mr. Fawcett offers a
special prize of $10,00 for the best
colt from his horse Potache,
$5.00 for the second best, and an
additional prize of $10.00 for the
best suckling, draft colt of
Fanion, the other black per
cheron has the advantage of hav
ing colts a year older than those of
Potache. It is from this older
crop ot t anion colts that the
Whitaker and Sol King colts
came and there are several others
in the country that promise to
give either of the above named
colts a hard run for first monev.
Premiums will be offered in
both draft and roadsters classes
for the best brood mare,
to be r shown with two colts,
quality of both mare and colts to
be considered. Here is a chance
for another close contest.
Doubtless the favorite in the
draft class at the present time is
the Whitaker mare the mother
of the noted Fanion colt. This
is an animal of medium size but
as a brood mare she has proven
a wonder. C. G. Davis has a
1,500 pound mare from the old
Hector horse that can show a
Cannock Oak two years old that
weighs close to 1,100, a Fanion
yearling between 900 and 1,000
pounds and a good suckling colt.
George Cooper has another Hec
tor mare that would show well
in this class. She is' larger than
either the Davis or Whiteaker
mare and has raised some mag
nificent colts. If enough of
these remain in the country to
render her eligible for entry she
will be a hard competitor.
A. R. Locke has a brood
mare that will be close to the
first money, when the premiums
are awarded. In fact there are
enough fine horses in Benton
county alone to fill every class,
and make a splendid show if the
owners will take the trouble to
