Judges Loud In Praise
Both Judges Thornber and Morris
are loud ln their praise of the excel
lence of the exhibit. Mr- Thornber,
who has been scoring at this fair for
seven years, says that this Is thu best
exhibit made In that period. For
variety and fine coloring for the ap
ple display he says that the National
Apple show has had nothing better.
In the vegetable displays there was
Teater variety nnd a selection of bet
ec _r specimens. The entries have
'doubled In some classes -Within tho |
last year and the exhibitors show that I
they are being trained in better se-1
lections. Mr. Morris Is equally com
plimentary about the quality of the
exhibits. I

NEW ATTRACTIONS
MADE BIG HIT
Children's Work Commended and
It Is Shown That They Entered I
346 Separate Exhibits in One
Department
The State fair closed Saturday, the
most successful meeting in its his
tory. In rang* and variety of the ex
hibits and exi-elleni'ii of the display
this fair is pronounced ahead of any
ever given by (he inslitution. Tho
management took s new departure
nnd added several new features, the
most important of these was the chil
dren's industrial department which
proved a great success and Is no doubt
now fixed as s permanent department
of the fair.
Work of llisiiiflnthiu; lleprun
111 the late afternoon Saturday the
work of dismantling the exhibit be
gan In the several department! and by
tin- lute evening in the woman's and
In the educational building the exhib
its were packed and being carted
away, in tho horticultural building,
however, tho exhibit is left practically
as it was and will not be removed till
today.
Extent of the Children's Department
Reports from the several superin
tendents show that the response by
the children made up a great pro
portion of the increased exhibit In
the Woman's building ln the art,
needlework and culinary' departments
it Is shown that there were-100 ex
hibitors competing in the children's
industrial department and that they
entered a total of 346 separate ex
hibits. In the educational department
tho proportion was equally great, and
in the horticultural dep:.,_ment the
work was shown separately and made
up one of the most interesting ex
hibits in the building. The entries in
the other departments were com
mendable and the -contests in stock
judging and fruit judging were im
portant features.
Awards in Milch Cow Test
The superintendent in the dairy de
partment had totals and results ready
to announce for the 48-hour milk
cow test this morning and the trophy
cup went to J. P. and E. B. of the
Ahtanum. The winning animals wert,
taken to the show ring in the after
noon and the cup offered by the O.-
W. R. & N. company was formally
presented to the winners hy Dr.
Kloeber of tjie fair commission.
The milch cow that won the first
prize was a Holetein from the Marks
herds, Edna Maris Jewel. The scor
ing for 48 hours gave the cow a
total of 161.6 pounds of milk; average
test 2.46; total butter fat, 8.916
pounds; value of milk $0,322; value
of fat, $1,205; total for product,

tered from the Todd herd also a Yaki
ma valley product.

test were also presented today. E.
W. Hahn, of Jefferson, Oregon, was
given the cup for the breeders' con
test, and W. J. Domes, of McCoy,
the cup for the winner of the young
men's contest.
Dynamite and Agriculture
An exhibit of the horticultural
building that attracted wide attention
was the result of cultivation of or
chard land by dynamite as illustrated
by an exhibit made hy paul Kruger
showing how apples ln a certain or
chard have been improved because
the hard pan was broken up by dyna
mite explosions, and ttye ifruit permit
ted to develop. It is shown that apple
rosette can be eradicated by this
means. Mr. Kruger did some good
work at the fair last week in dem
onstrating what he had done with the
orchard land upon which he experi
mented.

Last Day at Trade Given Over to
Burning Gasoline to Exceed
City Speed Limits
The racing of the State fair closed
Saturday with a card devoted to au
tomobile and motor cycle racing. The
motor cycling proved the main at
traction and several spirited contests
resulted by handicapping the contes
tants. There were but two auto racers
on the ground but the entry of J. T.
Harrah's touring car came very near
ly upsetting the talent by winning a
ton-mile handicap, where the Cole
racer driven by Alderson allowed tbe
other entries 30 seconds. The Cole
racer won by a narrow margin, but
the driver realized he had been in
a hot contest.
The ten-mile race for seven-horse
power motor cycles proved the best
contest of the day and the sensational
riding of Thurston, on an Indian
cycle, landed him the winner in 11.28
for the distance. The crowd lo iked
forward with some interest to a race
between Thurston and bush in the
final handicap, but a broken chain
on the "Thurston machine put him out
of the running just as the start «M
made. Following is the detail of the
res ilts:
First race—Amateur motor cycle;
five miles. Schuck's Indian, first;
Gumber's Merkle, second; Mo line's
Excelsior, third. Time, 6:1" % for the

Cosgrove Ladies of G. A. R.,
Newly Organized, and Charter
Still Open—Congressman La
Follette's Speech
G. A. R. day at the fair grounds
which resulted in so large an attend
ance of veterans as to create com
ment, was explained Saturday by
Commander C. H. Hoffman. He
stated that the post was growing in
proportion to the increased popula
tion, as in incoming families there
were civil war veterans. Interest in
G. A. R. activities Is growing pro
portionately, also, he said.
The local post now numbers about
100 members. The Relief Corps has
a membership of 200 or more. Great
Interest is being taken in the ladieS
of the G. A. R., an association com
prising only blood relatives and wives
of veterans. Wives of veterans and
of their relatives are also eligible.
The Cosgrove ladies of the G. A.
R., as the local association is called,
was organized on August 19 last, at
the residence of Mrs. Hoffman. It
now has permanent quarters ln I. O.
O. F. hall and meets every first and
third Monday of the month. There
are twenty charter members and sev
eral more will be admitted before
thr> charter ia closed.
The officers are; Mrs. R. AY. Allen,,
president; Mrs. Brldgman, senior
vice president; Mrs. Webb, junior
vice president; Mrs. Henderson, sec
retary; Mrs. Clark, treasurer, and
Mrs. Haines, chaplain.
Of interest to G. A. R. members
and their friends was the speech of
Congressman DaFollette, delivered at
the fair grounds Friday and the lo
cal post passed a resolution that it
be published ln The Herald.
Congressman DaFollette's Talk
Representative W. L*. L-aFollette's
address follows:
My Dear Friends —I should esteem
it a great privilege at any time to
have an opportunity to talk to the
number of people assembled here to
day on this beautiful fair ground in
the magnificent valley of the Yaki
ma. I would feel under obligation
to the managers of the State fair for
the privilege under most any con 11
--tion. But 1 feel that obligation to bo
many fold increased by having the
opportunity to address you on Grand
Army day. I think the managers
have done a wise, a patriotic and a
fitting thing to set aside a day in
which w-e as a state and as individ
ual citizens can show by words of
courtesy and by loving esteem for
the Grand Army of the Republic so
fast decimating in numbers and
who should become more endeared to
us as their numbers grow less. It
behooves us to take extra pains, make
extra effort to do them honor, for in
honoring them we are honoring our
selves, and filling the hearts and
minds of these young men and young
women and the' children of our coun
try on whom its future depends, with
patriotic thoughts, with grateful love,
and pride of country that cannot
help but be beneficial to our future
national life.
More than fifty years have passed
away since the country was electri
fied by the thrilling and horrifying
news that Fort Sumter and the flag
had been find upon in anger and
that treason which had been hinted
at and' threatened in an effort to co
erce, had actually become a reality.
And whil<> a wave of horror, of re
sentlment and of sadness swept,
there were none who realized the
toll of death and treasure, the suffer
ing of body, the agony of mind, the
sapping of the life blood of the na
tion of which that act was the har
binger. But a grateful nation knows
with what unanimity of purpose
and steadfast determination our cit
izens offered themselves on the altar
of their country, that its glory should
not wane, that its banner be not dis
honored, that it should not by trea
son be dismembered, and through
dismemberment admit that union
was a failure and that failure be the
ultimate cause of representative gov
ernment perishing from the earth.
Oh, my countrymen, these patriots do
not deserve any less praise, nor their
heroism be diminished in our sight
because they and those whvi led and
directed them did not realize the stu
pendous task before them, and
thought the trouble would all be over
in 90 days. In 90 days they beem
to realize what was before them—
90 days—six months—one year—
three years or until the end of the
war. Thus the terms of enlistment
were strung out. If determination
on your part was strong, it was equal
ly strong on the part of the beligor
ent*. We wore of one family. The
war was fratricidal. Father agein6t
son, brother agbinst brother, cousin
against cousin, neighbor against
neighbor, and f^letfid against friend.
It estranged/ families. In many
cases husbands; from wives, and lov
ers from sweethearts: it disarranged
all social, economic and equitable re
lations in huge territories throughout
our broad lan '.
The men who shouldered the mus
ket and bravely marched away from
those they loved, offering themselves
a bulwark of strength to preserve the
nation were worthy of groat p
they suffered hardship and privation,
cold. heat, hunger, sickness and
death; behif them they left those
I who with tt»rful eye but brave hearts
bade them Godspeed. The mother,
the sister, the sweetheart. Who will
ever know the haunting fear, the
sleepless nights, the phantoms and
dreadful visions that tormented their
waking hours and disturbed their
slumbers. The woe and heart ache
can never be measured by mortal
guage, or expressed by finite tongue.
That four years' struggle was the
most gigantic known to man. History
gives us no paralled. The deeds of
, heroism on both sides, the feats of
arms, the generalship displayed, the
difficulties encountered and overcome
crowns that war as the Very acme ot
military achievement. Thousands, aye
running into millions of men, un
trained ln the arts of war, from the
country house and farm, from tha
factory and the Workshop, from the
village and the plain, from crowded
city and mountain fastnesses they
j came, were moulded into a homo
geneous whole and met battle shock,
carnage and death as bravely and
efficiently as had the trained veter
ans of other lands.
The noble struggle made by our
brave boys of the north and their
equally brave brothers of the south
will long be told In song and story,
; will cause our hearts to swell with
: pride and admiration, with praise for
their steadfastness and courage, as
well as with pity, sorrow and com
miseration that such a conflict waß
ever precipitated upon this nation.
I was born in the year 1860 In
Indiana. My first coherent recollec
tions are of marching soldiers, flfas
and drums, of sad faced women and
stern faced men. My own mother
wept the death of a young brother
who fell near Atlanta during Sher
man's memorable "March to the Sea"
and lies buried ln the beautiful na
tional cemetery at Marietta, Ga. An
other uncle, my father's brother, a
captain of Company C, 70th regiment
Indiana Volunteers, was brought
home a helpless Invalid from swamp
fever contracted in a southern wil
derness, was for many years a pale
faced invalid and though he lived to
be quite an old man, never knew an
other well day, was never again the
buoyant young fellow that left his
home and young wife a picture of
healthy manhood, only a year or two
before they brought him home. The
crippled soldiers, minus arms or legs
or maimed in various other ways are
vivid pictures in my memory. Oh,
the misery and heartache did not all
end with the war; for years after It
was a veritable country of Rachel
weeping for her children and refus
ing to be comforted because they
were not. Throughout the land were
not only dependent orphans and
weeping widows, but thousands of be
trothed maidens mourning for the
young lovers who had so proudly and
so bravely marched away and had
given all they had to give, their
young lives, for their country's cause.
I knew many such cases personally
and I will never forget the pale, sad
faces of these young women, especial
ly noticeable on Decoration day when
the drum and fife and marching
throngs would vividly recall to them
their loved ones who had become a
sacred memory, and throughout this
land today in many relief corps are
old maiden ladies, who , have lived
lives of celibacy and are awaiting the
last bugle call and living in the hope
I and promise of the resurrection, long-
I Ing to see its fulfillment and with an
I abiding faith that they will again see
j and commune with those who died
midst blood and carnage and who
were all the world to them. The
tragedy of their lives, the irony of

It has been well called the lrre-B|j
pressible conflict. It bad to come. As X
tho immortal Lincoln had said dur- Bl
ing his memoniblt debates wltn^Bi
Douglas, this country could not existß
half slave and half free. The titanlo^B
elements that are back of all human
endeavor, the very law of nature,
self-preservation, made It an eco-^H
nomlc Impossibility, to say nothlng^B
nl Hie moral wrong. The canker that^B
was eating into our vitals, the thing-J
thnt had made our Declaration oT Sm
Independence but a mockery forw
three-fourths of a century, the lnstt-BB
tutton of slavery, the traffic inhu-^S
man, left Hie enforced bondage ofcHt J
several millions of human beingsHj
the nation was staggering under th<H|
load. It had to come, It was irre-^^
pressible. It was probably well that
it came when it did, at a time when j <
we had a Lincoln to meet the crisis, jB
and such generals as Grant, Sherman, I
mead and Sheridan to meet Johnson I{
and Lee, Stonewall Jackson and oth- L
er great and br&ve southern leaders. 1
The nation was probably as well L
fitted with strong, virile men for I
leaders and followers as it could sver I
have been in its history. The instt- l|
tution of slavery -was banished from |
our land and we hope the principle I
of unity forever established, and this {
country entered on a period of de- i
velopment ln all branches of human .'
endeavor such as the world had nev- )
er before witnessed. The progress in i
manufactures .arts, sciences, educa
tion and all human achievements has
been greater in the fifty years that /
have followed our Civil war than «n
a thousand years before It-
Think of it, end ponder it. In
unity there Is strength. This has I
been accomplished through unity of
thought, unity of purpose and unity
of fulfillment, and it Is to you, the
Grand Army of the Republic, that
this wonderful development, this
marvelous advancement, this phe
nomenal growth of all things both
mental and physical, is due, it was
your patriotism, courage and stead
fastness that made it possible, and
you are and will be for all time
deserving ot the love and regard Of
your fellow citizens, now living, and
of the unborn millions yet to be. No
nation on the face of the globe sver
owed a greater debt of gratitude to
any of its citizens than this one owes
to you.
It has been said no other country
ever took such care of Its soldiers as
has this one, and 1 want to say no
other nation known to history ever
had such a soldiery or one so worthy
of its care.
