Oregon state fair grounds are rapidlv
undergoing change and a complete !
metamorphosis will have taken place
nhen the gates are thrown open upon '
the occasion of the 55th annual Oregon
Btate fair, September 25-30, 1916. Al
ready marked improvement has been
made in the general appearance o'f the)
grounds and long before the fair opens
a vivid contrast will be shown over
any and all previous expositions.
Contrary to the usual custom of
waiting until two or three weeks before
the opening of the fair to begin prepa
rations and improvements of the
grounds, buildings, etc., the reorganiza
tion of the state fair board had scarce
ly been completed and .Secretary A. H.
I.ea had assumed direct management of
.affairs until plaus were laid and actual
work begun looking to the complete
working over and transformation of
scenes and conditions generally through
out the buildings and grounds. Al
though a great amount, of labor will
have been donated by theworking pa
tients of the state hospital and the state
prison, alterations and remodelling of
barns and buildings are being carried
on to such degree that a considerable
amount of money will have been ex
pended in general improvements ere the
extousive plans Bre carried into execu
tion. Approaches Beautified.
Under the general direction of Super-1
intendent R. K. Lee Steiner, of the state
hospital, and direct supervision pf Sec-;
retary I.ea, of the fair board, the en-!
tire lawn of the four acres of inner!
court area has been spaded, worked j
down and sown to grass and will pre
sent a beautiful vista of velvety green !
lawn, instead of the brown splotches of!
dead grass of previous fairs; a com-J
plete working over and rearrangement j
of flowor beds has been brought about
and flowers planted with the view of ,
creating the most pleasing and harmon- j
ious effect from an artistic standpoint;
a bed of perrenials is being placed upon:
each sido of the main entrance Vnlk
from the S. P. depot to the main gate; I
the spaiions court between the mnchin-j
ery hall and The new pavillion is being
worked down and converted into a'
sightly lawn in the center of which has
been constructed n huge flower bed,
50 feet in diameter, in which will be
placed a wide variety of full blooming
flowers and ornamental shrubs; nine
beds, each 100 feet long and wide
enough to accommodate three rows of
dahlias, or 2,700 feet in all, have been
provided upon the north side of the new
pavillion and will be completely filled
with growing dahlias, and 100 new half
barrel tnbs have been made and treated
with a rich coat of green paint, in which
flowers and shrubs of all kinds and de
scriptions will be planted, and these
will be distributed about the grounds
and buildings, greatly heightening the
Some of the Improvements.
A crew of 18 patients from the state
hospital has been working every work
ing day for several days getting the
grounds, flower beds, etc., into shape,
building nnd improving foot paths and
driveways all about the grounds. Next
week a crew of convicts will be put to
work grubbing out the unsightly
grow ths of trees and slashing the brush
from the fence rows clear around the
grounds and cleaning up the grounds
nnd around the buildings generally.
Hundreds of loads of gravel and de
composed granite, tho latter donated by
tho Southern Pacific company, have
been placed upon the driveways and the
work of Inying hard surface upon near
ly a milo of the unfinished main drive
ways within the grounds will be begun
as soon as weather conditions permit
and rushed to early completion.
While much of tho time and labor tip
on the state fair reservation is being
devoted to tho remodelling and repair
ing of buildings nnd improvement of
the exposition grounds proper, Socretary
Lea, of tho fair board, is not losing
sight of the opportunity for profit from
the agricultural area of the farm and
has in 23 acres of fibre flax, pronounce
ed the finest stand of early sown flax
in the valley, from which the fair board
will realize the standard price of $15
per ton for the straw, and 30 acres of
oats' which, under present conditions,
promise a big yield of grain. He will
also realize a big crop of hay from the
area directly in 'front of tho grandstand
and within the race conrse enclosure
which has been reserved for a military
camp ground and for free open air ex

(Written tor the I'nited Press.)
In the olden days 'twas a wily snake
Got the best of Mother Eve;
Bait the times have changed for that
You may well indeed believe;
For down at her feet, on her dainty
And up in the air on her hat,
The modern Eve has the best of him
And what do you think ti that?
New York, May 27. Don't be wor
ried nnd sign the pledge hastily if you
see snakes theso days. They are be
ing worn in tho best of families and
every fair chnrnier looks liNe a snake
one since the latest fad of serpents has
come to light.
Just to turn the tables on the old
nake for wearing Eve 's nerves, her
grand-daughters ure wearing him on
their fi ct and heads.
It surely is going bak sonic to go
back to th Oarden (if Bden for our
fashion". We began by decking our
selves out in apples and now we are up
to the snake. Let's hoj we stop at
that and don't revive the fig leaf fur
the summer months.
At first glunce) these new high boots
of grey kid appear to have tops of mot
tled silk, but a second glance confirms
your snaky, shaky suspicious.
They are very stunning of course and
when worn with"" wide brimmed sail
or hat with a crown of the same mot
tled skin the effect is not garish or
diz-arre, as you may at first suppose, but
conservatively rich and original.
Belts and pocketbooks also are shown
in the snake skin.
The summer girl is very keen for
beauty patches. 'Indeed, she seldom ap
pars in a barefaced condition without
a tiny black heart, diamond or dot en
hancing the dimple in her cheek or the
corner of one eye.
However, beauty patches aren't the
only patches on tho l!lrl beauty. Al
together, they may well be said to have
gone to her hoad, for the very newest
sKrt hat is a eraiy affair made ex
actly like your gruudmother's silk
It is a soft, erush hat and tno gayest
scraps of silk and hort stitches, or
learner sutcmng iu a uvmriuv iiixu-ii
Nuts on golf or tennis will feel very
much at home in one of these new
crazy patch headpieces and to designate
a fair lady as cruzy in the, head will im
ply rather a degree of smartness than a
iligma of addle-ptttcidiiess henceforth.
Do you know how to crochet an edg
ing on wash cloths and bath towels!
If so, cease such superfluous embel
lishment and turn your knowledge to
more wearing and wearable adornment.
If you 1I1111 't care fur the crazy patch
sport hals and still desire to be a smart
ly halted sport, purchase n broad brim
med lint and a. hank of yarn und then
get busy with your crochet hook.
.lust imagine your lint is a v. ash cloth
and edge it in a vivid shade of green,
cerise, yellow or purple and you will
have a simply stunning chapeau.
If yon are a versatile crocheter you
can make a hectic yarn flower with a,
leaf or two to put on the front of tln
crown and you will find that you hmo
hooked the most attractive sport hat ot
Hie season with your little crochet hook.
This is a true little yarn.
