President R. E. L. Knight of th*
State Fair of Texas, announces that,
through the courtesy of Mr. Augus‘
A. Busch .0/ St. Loui3, visitors to the
State Fair this year will have an op-
portunity to see Mr. Busch’s wonder-
ful herd of prize-winning Dexter cat-
tle. This will be the first exhibit of
true Dexters evtr shown in the South
Mr. Busch has been interested in
Dexters for several years, and has
gathered together the most wonder-
ful collection of individuals ever seen
in one herd. In fact, it is the orJy
considerable collection now owned in
this country and i3 expected to be
are of the most interesting features
of the 1911 State Fair.
The Dexler a Profitable Animal.
The De: ‘cr is a representative of
the diminutive Irish cattle that are
world-famous for producing meat and
milk of exceptional quality. Though
its origin is clouded in obscurity, it
is probably a member of the cele-
brated Kerry family of cattle, as the
two breeds have many common char-
acteristics. Its small size, and pro-
portionately small cost of production,
should warrant the interest of Amer-
ican cattle raisers, especially when it
is considered that the Dexter is a
prolific producer of high quality mi:k,
and that its meat will compare most
favorably with the breeds now high-’
est in the favor of American stoex-
The small size of the Dexter will be
realized when the statement is
that famous bulls of the breed have
weighed, at maturity, about 500
pounds—w:th the cows scaling a con-
siderably less figure. The average
adult stands about 36 inches high and
is sturdily and compactly built, show-
ing great depth of rib and general
Bevo Ponies to Be Shown.
In addit on to his Dexters, Mr.
Busch will show his world-famous
stable of Bevo ponies. These won-
derfully handsome little fellows—
really horses in miniature, are un-
doubtedly the best specimens now in
America. They are all of one size,
42 inches high, and are remarkably
alike in color and general conform-
ity. Mr. Busch states that he will
show his Bevos to harness; four-in-
hand, six-in-hand, tandem, etc.
W. H. Stratton, secretary of t ie
Fair Association, states that efforts
have been made during each of the
past several years to induce Mr.
Busch to make these exhibits, and
that their acquisition for this year’s
Fair is of the utmost value and im-
portance. Mr. Stratton also states
that one of the handsome new barns,
which are now being constructed, will
be reserved for the exclusive use of
the Busch exhibits, and that there is
no doubt but what these exhibits will
be of great interest to a majority of
the 1916 Fair visitors.
The wonderful increase in facili-
ties provided for the 1916 State Fair
of Texas, which will be held in Dul
las October 14 to 29, has been ex-
tended to include practically all de-
partments and divisions of the Fair.
In the classes for agricultural a id
livestock entries this increase 1 as
been most marked, especially in toe

THiS EXHIBIT LARGEST EVER SHOWN.
When the great State Fair of Tex-
as opens at Dallas October 14, the
largest and most valuable collection
of Farm Implements, Vehicles and
Machinery that the South ever saw
will be ready for the public.
A recent announcement from th*
office of Secretary W. II. Stratton, of
the Fair Association, states that ne-
gotiations for space have been con-
cluded with a large majority of the
country’s best manufacturers in these
lines, and that the demands for rep-
resentation will undoubtedly fill the
available space to overflowing, not-
withstanding the fact that more than
ten acres of ground space have been
An interesting part of this preal
exhibit, particularly to the farmer
who believes in progressive methods
in agriculture, will be the great num-
ber of new devices shown. During
the past year many improvements
have been made in farm machinery
and practically all of these will b«
Big Automobile Show.
Secretary Stratton also advises
that present indications point to the
largest and most complete show of
automobiles ever seen in this part of
the country. Practically all of thc-
cars of standard make will be seen,
and the many improvements as shown
in the 1917 models will no doubt in-
terest many. A special showing of
commercial cars and trucks will be
of interest to many farmers. During
the past three or four years many
farmers in all parts of the country
have found profit in a suitable car
to haul their lighter produce to ths
market, and several factories have
specialized in cars suitable for this
purpose. These will all be shown.
Many Tractors to Be Shown.
A topic in which the Southwestern
farmer of today is vitally interested
is Power Farming, as practiced with
the various types of Tractors now
being made and sold for use on the
farms. Nearly every farmer who has
given this subject deep thought has
become convinced that tractors are a
paying investment — particularly

BIG PREMIUMS OFFERED
AT 1916 STATE FAIR
DAIRY CATTLE DIVISION RECEIVES
One of the
features of any
State Fair is
found in the sec-
tion devoted to
exhibits of dairy

cattle, and this is
of the great State
Fair of Texas,
which has, during
recent years, pro-
gressed to recog-
F. F Sliney, of
Dallas, who is di-
rector in charge
F. F. Sliney. of this depart-
ment, recently announced that unus-
ually valuable premiums are to be
offered by the State Fair of Texas
this year for Dairy Cattle exhibits—
and that much new worl: would fea-
ture this division.
The Dairy Demonstrrtion tests,
according to Mr. Sliney, will be con-
ducted this year under the direct
personal supervision of a member of
the United States Department of
Agriculture, and the syatera of award-
ing premiums wl-ich will be used haa
been carefully devised to give all en-
tries an equal chance. Economical
production coat will be the deciding
factor, and this will be established
by applying a scientific “point” sy>
tera originated at one of the go
eminent experiment stations.
* It is strofigly urged that farmer
throughout the State enter their b<
dairy stock in this Demonstrate
and it wll “e to the advantage of ea
individual farmer to do so, for t #
actual value of each animal as a pro-
fit maker will be defintely establish'd
through these tests. The Dairy Dem-
onstration teats will continue for 12
days and will undoubtedly be one of
the moat interesting features con-
nected with the 1916 State Fair of

NEW LIVE STOCK BURNS
AT STATE FAIR OF TEXAS
When the State Fair of Texas op-
ens at Dallas October 14, 1916. it will
be provided with better facilities for
housing live stock entries than have
ever heretofore been the property ol
any Fair Association.
During the past year, according to
an announcement from W. H. Strat-
ton, secretary of the Fair Associa-
tion, a number of new barns have
been constructed, and these are of the
latest modern type of construction
and of an architectural design which
will make them harmonize with the
many other beautiful permanent
buildings owned by the Fair Associa-
Those who have had the pleasure of
a visit to Fair Park, Dallas, during
the State Fair, know that in number
and beauty of permanent buildings,
the State Fair of Texas is surpassed
by that of no other State. The3*
new barns are thoroughly in keeping
with their surroundings, and will re-
flect added credit to the “Fair With-
out an Equal.” At the same time
they will add greatly to the pleasure
of exhibitors in showing their stock,
and will facilitate matters generally
in the Live Stock Department.
Secretary Stratton also announces
that there is every present indication
to the effect that the entries in all
agricultural and live stock divisions
will he greatly increased this year,
and that there is no doubt but what
thp largely increased facilities pro-
vided by these new barns, will be
taxed to the utmost to provi !e suit-
ab''1 quarters for all entries in these
POULTRY SHOW AT STATE FAIR
W. H. Stratton, secretary of the
Fair Association, recently announced
that, in keeping with the increased
value of Southwestern poultry pro-
ductions, the State Fair of Texas
would materially increase the pre-
miums offered annually for poultry
exhibits, and this announcement is
followed by the statement that a di-
vis;on has been created for pigeons,
and that a special building is being
constructed to house the exhibits ir
this new class. Better facilities ha'--*
likewise been provided for the ex-
hibits of ducks, and a large duck pond
is now in course of construction.
In the main section of the poultry
Jivision increased space has been al-
lotted for the exhibits of all standard
and utility breeds, and present indi-
cations are that each breed will have
a large foil owing. Numerous requests
for entry blanks have been received
from the premier poultry fanciers ol
the Southwest, and, there is every
reason to believe that the best ana
biggest poultry show ever seen in th*
South will be a part of the 1916 Stat*
Fair of Texas.
Entries in the poultry department
will close Wednesday, October 11.
and poultry fanciers who contemplate
making an exhibit at the Fair should
•end in their entries promptly. •
