FARM MACHINERY AT STATE
f FAIR.
It was very gratifying to sec the
finic exhibits and demonstrations made
by a number of the implement dealers
at the recent State Fair. The Utah
Implement ,and Vehicle Co. had a
large; number of various kinds of ma
chines running at full speed, includ
ing their celebrated Minneapolis
thncshcr, manure spreaders, corn shcl
lers, fanning mills. They also had a
full display of plows, discs cultivators,
etc. on exhibition. Their greatest at
traction, however, was their 40 horse
power gasoline traction engine which
it was cSnimcd can be run much more
cheaply than can a steam engine of
equal horse-power.
The Consolidated1 W. & M. Co. had
a full display of the famous J. I. Case
machinery, manure spreaders, Bain
wagons etc., a very creditable display
of modern improved farm machinery.
The Scgo Implement and Vehicle
Co. had a full display also of manure
sproadcrs, wagons, discs, harrows, hay
harvesting machinery, etc.
The Danielsen Plow Co. had a full
line of its plows, harrows and culti
vators on thta ground with oi genial
demonstrator on hand to explain the
merits and superiority of their goods.
The Fairbanks-Morse & Co.'s ex
hibit of gasoline engines and scales
was well worthy of special mlcntion.
Engines of all sizes running, machin
ery of all kinds from a churn to a
huge pump lifting an irrigation stream
of water 10 feet.
It is a shame that .more of the im-.
plemcnt housies of the state were not
represented. It is one of the very
best means of advertising and bring
ing their goods before the people, and
ought to be taken advantage of by the
dealers,
The Grain and Potato Exhibits.
It is very much to be regretted that
not a single sample of grain exhibited
at the fair wasi pure. Every sample
of wheat, oats and ibarley contained
from two to four varieties. There
were in all 13 varieties of wheat, oats
and barley on exhibit (exclusive of
the Agricultural College exhibit which
was not competing). Some sho'wed
caflcful grading and fanning, wl He jl
still others contained chaff and st.w
g as it came from JJie thresher; no at
tempt having been made to grade it 1
at all. The most carefully graded and
cleaned wheat was the Dry Farm Fultz ,
wheat. Much need yet to be loaned 4
before the grain exhibits will come up 1
to the standard that they ought t'.
The potato exhibit showed marked
improvement. ThcrCj Vvcrc 20 varie
ties, nearly all. we'l.1 J graded and
cleaned. Perhaps Ihc-bcst shaped and i
cxhibitablc lot of potatoes was the
20th Century potatoes.
The potato that is coming more
rapidly into favor, especially in the
northern part of the state, is the Early
Eureka. This is a white, found pota
to, somewhat flattened and with very
shallow eyes. It was introduced into
the, sttc and has been grown now for
about six years by Mr.' J. F. Harper
of SmithfilclkJ. Mr. Harper last year
cleared $668 on every acre of land
planted to Early Eureka potatoes.
Mr. Harper always has his land in
the best possible condition, selects his
seed potatoes carefully and is a good
example of a thrifty, prosperous, up-to-date,
progressive farmer." Other
farmers please take note and 'sac what
can be accomplished and gained when
it is properly done. J
