(Asst. BtipU Demonstration Farms.)
Ono ot the first things to do when
considering tho selection of speci
mens for exhibition purposes Is to
secure a premium list and determine
In what classes you wish to exhibit.
If you hnvo already made your se
lection of material, study your pre
mium list very carefully and dotor
mlno In what class your exhibits will
stand the best opportunity of winning
a place. Kntry of specimens In tho
wrong class often prevents tho win
ning of a premium which otherwlso
might bo secured If properly entered.
No matter what your exhibit con
sist of, put It up in as neat a manner
as possible Try to make your dis
play attractive. If you hare grains
or grasses, put them Into neat
bundles, strip oft" all loose leaves that
tond to make It look ragged, cut off
tho stems so as to make a nest
squnro butt. Try to havo only ono
vnrlety In a bundle and ordinarily
but ono bundle of a variety. Take,

With potatoes, take stndoth, clean
specimens, handle carefully and If
exhibiting In crates, mako them as
attractlvo as possible Put up a
business pack. With apples, try to
secure perfect specimens. Always
try to keep from pulling out the
stems; If, however, they aro missing,
don't try to put In artificial ones.
Tho moro highly colored, tho bettor.
In short, one may say: Handlo alt
your exhibits as carefully as though
they were eggs. Have them clean
and free from blemishes and bruises.
Put them np as attractively as pos
sible. Name them correctly and try
to have tnem entered at tho fair on
