THE DALLAS FAIR
Exhibit of Products to be Made-
Farmers are Asked to Bring
The great success that came to
the exhibit sent from Hereford to the
Texas State Fair last fall has stirred
many to take more interest in the
matter for this year. The premiums
offered, if won, will not pay the ex-
pense of making the exhibit but the
benefits to be derived from such a
venture cannot be estimated. The
Dallas Fair, as it is called, has a
large attendance of people coming
from nearly every state in the Union.
All of Texas will see the Fair this
year. Many counties who have
never attempted an exhibit are going
to be there with their stuff. As to
Hereford, this much has been done.
A space 16x25 feet has been secured
at a cost of S40.00 rental. Last year
Mr. Boone, who was sent with the
exhibit, had to beg with tears in his
eyes, in order to get in. This year,
preparations have been undertaken
earlier. Now, the next thing to do,
is to get the promise of as many
farmers as will to bring in their ex-
hibitable stuff. Let every farmer,
who has any interest whatever, bring
in something. It makes no difference
what it is or how poor you may think
it is, it will do. The thing to do is
to bring something in. The list be-
low will give the amount of each
article that must be shown íd order
to comDete for a Drize :
Plate (6) apples, each variety.
Plate (6) pears, each variety.
Plate (6) peaches, each variety.

Object Lessons of Irrigation.
The National Irrigation Congress
| and the International Exposition,
| Albuquerque, September 29-October
i 10, properly are joined in one big
: event. For the Exposition, with all
; the fruits of the soil, grown in the
! desert by the t^uch of water, is a
practical less .:, of irrigation. Really
I the Exposition will attract the atten-
¡ tion of visitors from the Eastern
'States and from South Africa, A-ia,
| and South Eurupe, more than the
I Congress will. For Irrigation is
, centuries old, but its application is
practically r;ew, and visitors from
remote states and foreign countries
will want to be shown.
So the managers of the exposition
are sparing no pains to make of it
the biggest agricultural and livestock
show in the Mountain West, east of
| the San Joaquin Valley. They pro-
¡ pose to give a practical lesson of the
¡ value of irrigation in the form of
orchard and field crops, and even
thoroughbred livestock grown in the
desert by the artificial application
of water. These exhibits will in-
clude oranges, lemons, pomeloes,
figs, dates and olives from the irri-
gated valleys of Southern Arizona ;
and the more hardv orchard and

field crops, cotton, beet sugar, and
livestock from all over the so-called
Desert West. These products, es-
pecially the orchard fruits, not only
will be shown, b it they will be Town Stirred in Great Religious
