President Hanley went out yes
terday to meet the bunch and
started on over to Prineville to
accompany the Hill party in but
has turned toward Burns since
it is not certain that Mr. Hill
will make the trip owing to the
condition of the weather and
roads. Mr. Hill may yet come,
however, as the weather bids to
be fairer and the Burns-Bend
road has been suggested as the
route to come.

Klamath Falls, Vice-president in
the absence of President Hanley.

of tho appreciation of the Port

to be present. Not one wanted
to turn back on account of bad
weather.

The Fair Grounds
'Some Snappy and Interesting
Items From the Exhibits.
The exhibits are coming into
tho fair grounds rather slowly,
but those that are there are of
the first order.
The largest exhibit so far is
the one made by Ralph Hibbard,
made up of products raise of his
Prather creek farm.
His farm is given over to crops
of a diversified nature, and he
raises everything to gladden the
heart of the most enthusiastic
farmer, palate of a particular
vegetarian. One should see his
melons, tomatoes and other vege
tables and fruits and be convinc
ed, that comes to the farmer
The Drewsey exhibits are just j
i arriving as we go to press. While
these exhibits have not been
i placed if one can judge by the
I mammoth pumpkins, and squash
I es it will be worthy of our closest
investigation.
The grain and grass exhibit
I promises to be a good one, they
are coming from all parts of the
I county.
The grain is of an excellent
quality and it does not take much
of a prophet to take a peek into
the future and see our valley
given over to the fields of golden
j grain.
Grasses, such as alfalfa, red
top, clover, also timothy, vetch
and field peas are on a par with
those grown in other parts of the
country. These products are
suitable for the raising of horses,
cattle, pigs, sheep etc. If we
were suggesting we might say as
a word of admonition that "pigs
is pigs," and there is money and
good money to the producer.
While we have never claimed
this country as a fruit' country,
yet in the face of the fruit that
is now on exhibition and that
which is coming in we will hare
to pull in our horns, and become
a fruit boomer as well; for we
'found apples, (many varieties)
, plums, peaches, pears, melons,
cantaloups, etc, which demon
strates that fruit can be raised,
j and what one man can do anoth
I cr can also. While our prairie
lands may wave in golden grain,
j our hills, under proper cultivation
jand irrigation will produce as
igood and hardy fruit as found in
some of the valleys now noted
for fruit production.
I The vegetable crop this sea
son has been good.
Special mention might be made
of the corn brought in by Mr.
Chas. Wilson. The stalks are
about ten feet high.

tables is the kahlrabi, which is a
cross between the cabbage and
turnip it is said to be very palata
ble. There areja number of sam
ples of this appetizing vegetable.
Tomatoes can be found in many
of the exhibits, they will speak
for themselves, as to the mildness
of the climate and quality of the
soil.
Cabbage can be found that is
as large and solid as needed and
is guaranteed to make the finest
quality of sauer kraut to gladen
the hearts of expected German
settlers.
The sugar beets are of a very
fine quality according to the tes
timony of experts who have seen

very surprising if in about two
years we will be placing samples
of sugar on exhibition also.
Other features of the fair are
merry-go-round, shooting at
moving animals, throwing at the
babies, and all concessions that
go toward making up a good live
fair.
