SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1908. THE DESERET FARMER . , ifr I
gone a degree of evaporation arc dis
similar in their submission to standard
tests, and the problem of fair analy
sis mny still be regarded as not en
tirely solved.

STATE FAIR NOTES.
Considerable favorable comment
was heard on the improvements at
the Fair grounds. A' new art building
has been constructed, the iblcachcrs
3 enlarged, some fifty new stalls1 addcJ
and the grounds and buildings made
very attractive. President McDonald
and Secretary Ensign arc hustlers and
the people of the state arc under ob
ligations to them.
Some of the best exhibits as well
as many who will not exhibit at all,
still feel that it is all wrong for a
Director to supervise any of the de
partments. As a matter of fact while
the exhibit this year was splendid wc
have no doubt that it could be trcb
blcd, if this vexatious question could
be properly adjusted.
