Domestic Economy Exhibit.
About ten days before the afternoon of
January twenty-sixth, several hundred
invitations were sent out requesting at
tendance upon an exhibition of the work
of the classes in domestic art and domes
tic science, in other words sewing and
cooking. The invitations were confined
to the women of Pullman, the men in at
tendance on the school for farmers and
the young women of the College. Nu
merous young men of the College, how
ever, strayed in, and from the number
who presented credentials as "represent
atives of the press" it is evident that the
reception will be given wide publicity.
They cannot be blamed for desiring to go
because it certainly was an enjoyable
place to be.
The exhibit was of work done under
Miss McDermott, who is proving herself
a very capable and thorough instructor.
The department is now only a year
and a half old but the time has been
amply long to prove its possibilities and
to measure its effects. Young women
from all parts of the commonwealth of
Washington are being trained in the art
of "home making," than which there
can surely be no higher art, and the re
turn to the state will be many times the
cost of the training.
The visitors of the afternoon were first
introduced to the reception committee,
Miss McDermott, Mrs. Bryan and Mrs.
Van Doren. Then they were shown the
work of the class in sewing by the young
ladies of the class. The smaller garments
were arranged upon tables, while the
shirt-waist suits each young lady was re
quired to make were displayed upon the
"dummies." No matter that these had
no heads —heads didn't count in a ques
tion of pleats and tucks and piping. The
note books were interesting to examine,
containing all kinds of stitches and di
rections how to make them, and oh! joy
to the masculine heart —examples of all
kinds of darning and mending.
Next the guests were invited to reg
ister, and afterwards were taken first
to the kitchen, where they were given a
chance to see one set of young ladies
washing the dishes according to the lat
est approved method, and another set
preparing the refreshments for the guests.
This only served to whet the appetites
and made more agreeable the pleasing
picture of a beautifully decorated table
with two young ladies at each end pour
ing chocolate and coffee. Other young
ladies assisted in serving the guests from
the table and in a very easy way the
hundreds of visitors were taken care of.
The exhibit was a great success and
certainly reflects great credit upon the
head of the department and upon the
young ladies who have so well profited
by the excellent instruction.
A Prophecy Party.
The largest and most delightful after
noon party of the year was that given by
Mrs. Flanders at her home last Saturday
in honor of Miss Bay Wallis. Cards hav
ing little verses on them were distributed
to the guests who made suitable drawings
of Miss Wallis at different times in her
future life and also wrote a line or two of
advice. These leaves were placed in a
burnt leather cover and the book was
presented to Miss Wallis. Miss Georgia
Malotte received first prize while Miss
Charlotte Malotte got the booby.
Mrs. Harvey and Mrs. Kimball sang
an original song which was indeed a suc
cess. The time passed all too swiftly
with music and songs.
At a prettily decorated table Mrs.
Flanders and Mrs. Kimmel served deli
The guest list was composed of Mes
dames Matthews, Wallis, Allen, Harvey-
Kimball, Egge, Small, Kimmel, Dysart,
Lawrence, and the Misses Saxton, Me
Dermott, D. Smith, Charlotte and
Georgia Malotte, Baum, Baker, Miner,
Elma and Maud Spaulding, Elma and Jo
McCanu, Hays, and Saidee Wallis.
The next two weeks of the Farmers'
School will be devoted to the study of
live stock. On the eighth and ninth of
February the Inland Breeders' Associa
tion, of which Prof. Elliott is president,
will be in session here.
Want Ballad on the "Trail".
A prize of $100 is offered by
I. N. Fleischner, chairman of the
press and publicity committee of the
Lewis and Clark Exposition for the
best ballad written on the subject of
Ithe "Trail". The subject may be
treated either in its historical aspect,
as relating to the old Lewis and
Clark trail which the hardy explor
ers followed on their trip to the
Pacific, or the "Trail of 1905."
The amusement street of the
Western Wo»ld's Fair is called the
"Trail," instead of the Midway or
Pike which were the names applied
to the gaiety boulevards of other
expositions. The "Trail" is built
on a bridge spanning Guild's Lake,
a natural body of water forming
the "grand basin" of the exposition.
Many new features have been plann
ed to grace this bridge this summer,
and, on account of its location, much
attention will be directed to aquatic
The competition for the best bal
lad on the "Trail" is open to all.
Competent judges will be selected
from the best known literateurs of
the Pacific Northwest and the con
test will close May 1. Invitations
have been extended to all the well
known writers of verse and many
good poems are expected to be sub
