"The state fair this year promiws to
be the best in its history, and this is as
it should be, for of all times this is
the time we should stimulate agricul-
al production," said Governor Withy-
combc today in commenting on tire Fif
ty Seventh annual Oregon state fair
which opens here September 23 for $
week, and in urging the pvople to at
tend. "President Wilson has wisely advo
cated the" continuance of fairs hrs
year, despite tho terrible crisis con
fronting the country, so let Oregonians
be patriotic and loyal to their state fair
and make it the banner fair in the his
tory of Oregon," he continued
"The Oregon state fair is the most
important fair of its class on the Pa
cific coast. It is becoming a real school
of practical education. There are yf
commendable features AiMpfl tins vpnr
particularly the ono in food conserva
tion and production.
"The Boys and Girls club wdrk is
also becoming a strong feature of tho
state fair. This is exceedingly commen
dable, because the futuro of modern ag
riculture in our statw depends upon tho
enthusiasm and inspiration acquired by
our younger population. Parents should
do their utmost in getting their boys
and girls on the farms interested in ag
riculture, because this is our great per
manent basic industry. The future farm
er of tho state should receive his inspi
ration early in life, and there- is no bel
ter place to acquire this than at the
"The state fair board should also be
commended for the splendid enterprise
it has shown in providing an up to date
and commodious coliseum in which tho
livestock can be displayed to the best
advantage to spectators as well as for
judging. This will bo a valuable acqui
sition to the fair especially in case of
inclement weather, which frequently
prevails during fair week With this
building, rain or shine, we can hava a
"Oregon has been characterized for
its strength in livestock for a number
of years. In fact, our flocks and herds
compare in quality with those of any
state in the union, and with tho effort
made by the board wo should have a
splendid exhibit of livestock this year"
Prediction,, are made by A. H. Lea,
secretary of the fair board, that the
livestock show will be easily tho big
gest and best ever held in the west.
Congdon & Battles will show their fa
mous double lrerd of Aberdeen-Angus
cattle for tho first time a tthe fair,
and the Curtis Martin livestock com
pany',, Hereford herd which is equal
to any herd of its kind in tho world
will bo on exhibitioy. It is bving exhib'
ited for the first time in the United
States. Mr. Thornberry of Spokane, the
largest importor of horses in the Unit-
ed States, will have his horses on dis
play, and so will A. C. Ruby, Oregon 's
noted horseman. According to present
indications, there will bo more small
exhibitors of livestock than ever before
this bving due t0 the fact that farm
ers in recent years have been investing
in blooded stock.
Judges are Selected
Following are th judges appointed
for the livestock show: W. A. McKer
row, director of livestock and dairy ex
tension work of tho University of Min
nesota, who will make the awards in
the sluvp and goat division, and who
will probably lso judge the Jersey cat
tle; E. H. Farrington, head of tho dairy
department of the University of Wis
consin, wh0 will judge the dairy pro
ducts; C. Larson, professor of dairy hus
bandry of the South Dakota college,
who will judge the Holateins; George
C. Humphrey, animal husbandman of
th0 University of Wisconsin, who will
judgo tho Guernseys; W. H. Pvw, pro
fessor of animal husbandry of the Iowa
State college, who will judge the hors
es, and probably also the beef cattra
and Thomas W. Brunk, of Eola, who
will judge the swine.
The food administration has agreed
to send an exhibit to tho fair, which
will show how substitutes are grown,
tliwr value, and how they are used.
Daily lectures and demonstrations will
be given by experts on food production,
and conservation. Fully as many coun
ties as last year will be represented by
agricultural and horticultural exhibits
Great Tractor Show
Tractors will predominate in tho ma
chinery division, and there will be a
splendid automobile exhibit. The fa
mous Fordson tractor will be shown for
tho first time in the west. Wide inter

tors, and the machinery pavilion will

CAPTAIN REISER ALIVE.
The announcement that Cap
tain Phil J. Keiser had been
killed in action was probably
wrong. It was reported that
he had been killed July 13, but .
a letter was received from him
dated August 9. The letter was
received in Marshfield. In the
letter he mentioned neither sick
ness or taking part in any ac
tion. Captain Keiser is a for
mer resident . of Salem.
