Real Farm at the Fair.
A large experimental farm, in
actual operation under the direc
tion of skilled agriculturalists, will
be one of the many novel spectacles
at the Lewie and Clark Centennial.
The farm will be located on the
western side of the Fair grounds,
and the work of preparing the soil
and laying out the farm is already
well under way.
The site alloted to the farm was
formerly a truck garden which was
couducled by Chinamen. Il is an
ideal spot with rich, alluvial earth
capable of producing the most pro
lific crops. None of the great world
expositions ever held before have
given such an object lesson to the
people. While there have been
corn stalks of enormous size, tied
with blue ribbons, and fruits on a
china plate, the opportunity of
studying a marvelous crop, while
actually growing, will be an entirely

“Tbe urgent necessity for legisla
tion to better the condition of the
livestock business in eastern Ore
gon should be considered by men
in that business just at thia time,”
said a well known stock raiser of
the Lawen section to The Times-
Herald man the other day. He
was very much in favor of the pro
posed meeting of the stock men
which the Harney County Stock
Association has scheduled for Sat
urday, December 24, in this city.
This gentleman is not a member
of the association but when told
that invitations were extended to
all the stock raisers of the county
he expressed a desire to attend and
participate. Many beneficial ideas
have been suggested of a remedial
nature and a well attended meeting
would be the meaus of concentrat
ing these ideas, create an interest
among the growers and be the
means of bringing tbe individuals,
in closer relations. The advan
tages of co-operation are so mani
fold that by frequent consultation
much more can be accomplished.
The Times-Herald is informed
that Representative Sitz has ex
press a desire to meet wivh the
stockmen of this county before the
legislature convenes in Janary and
since the local association has al
ready fixed a date for such a meet
ing it is hoped that a representative
body of stockgrowers will be pre
sent and some definite idea formed
of the legislation desired. If they
expect our representative to accom
plish anything for their relief they
should make it a point to be pre
sent at this meeting so that dis
cussions may be general and if
need be a committee appointed to
outline measures they desire intro
He had no sooner placated the
feminine powers than an elderly
gentleman approached the actor
and extended his hand.
“It this Mr. Drew?”
“I make bold to address you as a
fellow guest. We have never met
before, but believe me 1 have been
more eager to see you than 1 can
find words for.”
"It is a rare pleasure,” observed
the actor, "to form a new acquain
tance in ibis cordial spirit. And I
am glad to meet you.’’
They shook hands warmly.
"I judge,” said the old gentle
man, “that you are no less sincere
than myself. No doubt you are as
as hungry as I am.”—New York
