Club Members to Have Large
hlbit at County Fair
From present Indications the club
members will hare one of tho larg
est departmental exhibits at the
County Fair. Fully 60 per cent of
the 300 club members have ex
pressed their intentions of exhibit
ing their work.
The largest exhibits will probably
be in the pig and sewing projects.
Tho other projects of cooking, can
ning, home-making, corn poultry
nnd dairy herd record keeping, how
ever, will be of good slzo and quality.
In nearly every community the
club members are beginning to take
stock of their work and study where
It can bo improved. In the pig
clubs a little more grain Is added to
the ration, tho vigorous application
of soap and water is giving the hair
a glossy appearance, and tho pig is
being taught the gentle art of con
ducting himself properly in the
show ring. Tho corn club members
are busy pulling weeds and Irrigat
ing, and many an anxious moment
is spent by tho poultry club mem
bers in deciding on what birds to
select for the Fair. The girls are
also beginning to study where their
work might be Improved. The com'
petition is going to be keen and It
will Indeed be excellent work that
places In the prize money.
Besides tho general exhibit there
will be several special exhibits. The
sowing club at Ontario is planning
a small booth to display their doll
clothes project. Tho Valley View
Poultry club will have a demon
stration on tho value of a balanced
ration for poultry.
nuviaing a Writer.
I have no means of knowing
whether you are patient In the pursuit
of this art ; but I am Inclined to think
that you are not, and that you do not
discipline yourself enough. When one
is Impelled to write this or that, one
has still to censider: "ITow much of
this will tell for what I mean? How
much of it Is my own wild emotion
and superfluous energy how much re
mains that Is truly belonging to this
Ideal character and these Ideal circum
stances?' It Is in this laborious strug
gle to make this distinction, and. In the
determination to try It, that the road
to. the correction of faults lies. Per
haps I may remark, In support of the
sincerity with which I write this, that
I am an Impatient and Impulsive per
son. myself, but that It has boon for
many years the constant effort of my
life to practice at my leak what I
preach to you. Dlckensf
The dinger and the 8ong.
A song Is a great adventure Thou
sands write It, tens succeed ; and when
they have succeeded, Its fate still lies
entirely with the singer. No one ever
had It so much In his power to make
the worse appear the better cause, or
to refrain from so doing. The ancients
placed Thamyrls and Narnda among
the gods ; the moderns pay the.r coun
terparts royalties. But the singer's
personality Is still Incalculable In
terms of canonization or of cash. That
personality means all that he has been
able to crowd into bis life ; and ho may
still enlarge it A good way to do that
Is to read all the poetry that he docs
not sing, and to listen to all the music
written for some other Instrument
than the voice. A. II. Fox Strang-ways.
Harmony of Colon.
It Is a well-known fact that a pleas
ing harmony of colors attracts the
eye much as musical harmony pleases
the ear. In order to test the har
mony of color combinations, a ma
chine has been devised, described and
Illustrated in the Popular Mechanics
Magazine, with which a colored disk
Is revolved rapidly, so as to cauae the
colors to merge, and this visual mix
ing ef the colors gives- the same result
to the eye as would the actual mixing
of the colored Inks themselves.
