One of the very beat collections
made In this department wag by Gso.
Calhoun, the popular clothing mer
chant. In handsome glass caae he
iiad no leas than 1)6 valuable speci
roes, the whole being worth over
$400. And the best part of it all was
that the entire exhibit came from
mines located in tbe vicinity of
Urauts Pans. Of course be deserved
the first prise aud be easily got It.
A I). LeRoy showed some very
pretty wire gold of great value,
which came from tbe famous Yellow
Jacket mines located near Merlin.
W. J. Winter, tbe noted mining man
had in the display something that
was out of the ordinary. Mr. Wimer
knows a (rood newspaper, for be was
the man who started the Courier,
back in I88fi, when he fnrniahed ths
capital to make It a "go" aud after
wards published tbe Paoer himself, lie

he showed the only ruedal given by
the Lewis aud Clarke lair for an ex
hibit of platiuum which came from
his mine in this mining diHtrict.
James Logan's display of black sand
which was neb with black snad aud
platinum, and in the center of which
was a little pyramid of solid gold,
yaliitd at $1110, was a drawing car.1.
Not least in the collections was one
uiiule by Capt. G. A. Atchiicu. It
contained precious metals and val
oable stouts from all the countries of
the earth. It in well worth a place
in any mineral exhibition.
llie remarkable allowing made by
tliu Williams Cret k Marble Co., was
indeed an eye opener for the be
holders, lor it showed the liuest
product to lie found any where. It
was in the rough and itl-o in the

a big aitracl ion.

DOMESTIC SCIENCE EXHIBITS.
In the Domestic Science department
the displays were in charge of Mrs.
8. F. Cheshire, the superintendent,
who very gladly imparted to the
Courier man any information regard
ing tbe articles that might be desired.
The tea, both in the green aud
tt-iud .tnle. urou'ii rluht here in .Tnse-
J pliine conuty by Mr. uentner, was an
interesting ienture lie also naa
some wonderful seedless raisins
which were interesting objects.
A can of bartlett pears which were
canned over 23 years ago by Mrs.
Winifred Savage and which are said
to st 11 be in a state of good preserva
tion was mi interesting sight to tbe
It made the newsgatherer's mouth
fairly water to gaze upon the many
displays of choice cakes aud cookies,
there being six varieties in all and
they were truly good to look upon.
When it came to children baking
cakus, there were some trnly remark
able showings. Klvin Robinson, of
Wildervillu, aged 14 years, carried off
the first honors in the oulinary art,
while Ruth Hathaway, of Grants
Pasa, aged 11, won close second
place. Jimmie Tnbbs shocked tbe
girls by presenting for their consider
ation some cans of fruit which he had
put up i ll by bis "lonesome," and
the older cocks pronounced it a fine
Job. He will make some "New
Woman" an ideal husband in tbe
years to come
Hat it remained for one of the oldest
ladies in the county to walk in an
carry off the first prize for the best
llyhtbread and that was won by Mrs,
Hall, mother of L. B. Hall, who at
the age of 73, performed Ihtt remark
able feat. '
FINE FANCY WORK
Mr A. B, Cornell, superintendent
or the Needlework department kindly
enugntened tne reporter on tbe In
tricacies of that line.
One of the novel things to be seen
was some fine point lace made by
Mrs. K. C. Morris, aged S3 years aud
the most remarkable thing about it
was that si e did not even have to nse
eye glasses in making it
Mrs. Cornell desired to personally
thank each of the ladies who so
kindly assisted in making this display
such a success. Maoy assisted by
bringing in the articles and others
helped by arranging them lor the in
spection of the visitors.
Tbe committee having this line in
hand was very much limited in not
having but a very few prizes to offer
and then, too, the room for display
ing them was very much lias than
liny would have liked to have.
Manv fine articles were uot eveu
pi. eel on the shelves or tallies, as
there win no chance to fhow them off.
In tact the committee was agreeably
shocked at tne large amount of dis
plays made iu this line. 1 hey vv. r
expecting only a small number,
w hen us they were fairly swamped
with til. Mil.

Dr. W. W. Walker added an if

gold. In the collection, however was
