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.

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 , WM. M'MURRAY, General Pas senger Agent, O.-W.
