PAYS BETTER THAN A SAVINGS BANK
1 Owing to its many money-saving and money-earning qualities, there is no better investment that a
*LZ Jf; Dairyman can make than aU. S. Cream Separator. Eight or nine cows and a U. S. Separator are
liJl eaual to ten or eleven cows without one, to say nothing about the cost of feeding and labor saved.
IHT^ Dairymen who are getting along without a separator, thereby hoping to save the expense of buying
JBSHw one are making a grave mistake, as they are sure to find out sooner or later. Many have wished they
la*Vl/ 1 had bought sooner, so will many others when they know the superior qualities of the U. S.
™W| if any dairyman was sure he would save enough the first year to pay for his separator, would., t he
g^gP; buy? Well, that is just what hundreds and thousands of purchasers of the U. S. Separator have done,
j^TI and some have made enough in six months,

The State Fair at Yakima this year
promises to be the best ever held. In
all the departments there will be spec
ial features that wnl surpass anything
attempted in previous years, and in
every branch of the institution new
methods of exhibits will be notice
able. The Board of Commissioners
are now putting in a good deal of work
getting things in shape for the big
event, and nothing will be left undone
that will likely bring success. Owing
to the fact that but little expense was
necessary on the grounds this year,
as was the case last, better premiums
have been offered in every depart
ment. This alone will insure a good
exhibit from all parts of the state.
It is in the live stock department
where the most noticeable change
will be. Applications for stalls are now
coming in rapidly and from indica
tions it looks as though there will be
triple the display over that of last
year. Beef and dairy breeds of cat
tle will predominate among the live
stock, while draft horses and road
sters will be well represented, with
Washington, Oregon and British Co
lumbia competing for the good prizes.
Among the big herds to be exhibit
ed will be one from the John Sparks
famous Alamo ranch at Reno, Neva
da. He will place on exhibition here
the finest lot of Herefords ever seen
in the state; and among the Red Pol
led breeders will be S. A. Converse,
of Creese, Iowa; Frank Brown, of
North Yamhill, and W. O. Wilmer, of
Heppner, Oregon, will exhibit Short
horns; F. A. French, of Portland, will
have a herd of Brown Swiss in the
stalls, and Frank Padget, recently of
Missouri, but now of North Yakima,
will have for the first time in the his
tory of the fair, a fine herd of Aber
deen-Angus cattle on exhibition.
Among the Jersey stock exhibitors,
will be T. F. Griffith, of Spokane; J.
L. Smith, Spokane; Fechter & Janeck,
North Yakima ; D. H. Looney, Jef
ferson, Oregon. F. E.
of Portland, will make a Combination
exhibit of Jerseys, Guernseys and Berk
shire pigs, and J. E. Shannon, of
North Yakima, will have a combina
tion exhibit of Polled Durhams and
Jerseys. There will also be a num
ber of other stock exhibitors.

fying their intention to make a big
display are Clark, Columbia, Chelan,
Walla Walla and Yakima. There will
be special exhibits from numerous
manufacturers of the state and coun
ty. The stake races have eleven
horses entered in one and fourteen in
another, which, with a good list of
regular races, interspersed with the
famous Indian runners of the Yaki
ma and other tribes visiting here in
the hop-picking season, promises a fine
exhibition to all lovers of the horse.
Cheap excursions will be run from
all points in the state. Anybody wish
ing a premium list can procure it free
by addressing T. B. Gunn, secretary,
North Yakima, Washington.
The Spokane Interstate Fair has de
cided to give no night entertainments
during the fall this year and the even
ing entertainment will be given by
the Masonic lodge of Spokane, who
are promising a novel and amusing
A telegram has been received by
the B. C. Dept. of Agriculture from
Mr. F. W. Hodson, that in consequence
of Mr. John Davidson having been in
jured by a bull, he will not be able to
come to the province to judge live
stock. He will be replaced by Mr. G.
W. Clemons of St. George Ont., a
splendid judge of dairy cattle, swine
and light and heavy horses. It is not
known how serious the accident to Mr.
Geo. H. Martin, secretary and man
ager of the Spokane Interstate Fair,
requests us to say that he will be glad
to answer any inquiries from farmers,
fruit growers, dairymen, stock rais
ers, etc., concerning the coming fair.
The premiums offered this year are
very liberal and much larger in many
instances than last year which should
cause much interest to be manifested
by our readers.
