GRAHAM COUNTY FAIR An Interesting Letter From the Up per Gila Vallej. Safl'ord. Arizona. October 1. 1900. (Special Correspondence of the Arizona Republican.) About three months ago the "Farmirs' Institute' of this county began agitating the holding 'f a county fair: and the result was that one convened at Thatcher. September 21. i'x and Although it was not as well alt'nib'd as it should have been, yet i: marks an epoch of unusual inter est and of friendly rivalry among th" farmers to produce the best of fruits and to Improve their grade of stock. The motto of the Fanners' Institute is "En outage and Patronize- Home In dustry." and they arc adhering to ;hat principal as much as possible. The last afternoon of the fair was devoted to a Farmers Convention at w hiell Pi-ofesst a s Foi lies and True of the Agricultural Exp'-riment Station at Tucson spoke: the foi'a vr upon "Crops of the I'pper Gila." dwelling particular ly upon beet cultuie: anil the latter ' upon "Improved Sire St i-k." Moth I and speakers are Interesting talk. off i red good suggestions. The whole display in every resp-'ct, considering this was the first fair, made a very creditable showing.

Prof. exhibit be I Forbes requested I hat thl.- scnt to the territorial fair to be held at Phoenix in October. The net llework was quite artistic. QuIltK of various patterns fancy and otherwise beautiful drawn work, pin cushions of many designs, knitted laces doilies, throws and banners. A large bedspread consisting of square figures and four kaved flowers was knit from cotton yarn. It was ninety years old anil a wonderful piece telling of skill, ingenuity and patience. There also was an old. old fashioned quilt, completed by a gt a titlmot her just a sliori time before her death, at the age of seventy-nine years. It is called the magnolia quilt. Flowers, buds and leaves made of nil m n 1 green were set in white which was qniited in double co:r .passi s. There also was a quill from one of tile Hawaiian Islands which was fash- Ion. '.d by one of the natives. It is very is in one large. The whole pamrti piece and was cut from red material and fastened upon white muslin, and three months were spent in quilling it. It probably represents some ancient symbol of kingly power. There w'as also a tasty tidy made by a man while in the penitentiary. It is of a good size, formed of fringed balls of cotton that were painted to delineate figures. Just think of men making tidies for wives, two at least. per.:aps more. . man!

Aiizona, September -S. 1900. (Special Correspondence of the Arizona Republican.) The university has start ed in upon what promises to be th? best and most succesful year of its ex isttrii.e. Tne enrollment at present is one hundred male and seventy-five fe male students, about one hundred of the total being on the dormitory lists. As proof of the growing popularity of this school we have this year several former students of our best western colleges. Of th? male portion of the student. body about two-thirds are registered under the mining course, the balance being specials and English stu dents. The faculty has been increased by an addition of two members. Dr. Griffith, of Columbia college, botanist, and Prof. G. p:. P. Smith, civil and mining engin ert ing. ! Mis Mt Gauhey returned last Wednes 1 day from an extensive trip through Europe in which she visited friends in Germany took in the sights of the I'aris exposition, i Prof. Hall also has returned from a . visit to the Paris exposition and Eng- land. While east he took a post graduate course at Harvard univetsity. in a special English course. He was one of a party comprising fifteen Har vard students, who visited the Paris ' exposition together.

GILLETT. CKCIL ItHODKS AS COLLECTOR. Ea a of His Relics Re.-alls a Chapter of Africa's Strange History. ff -il Rhodes ha.? a genuine admira tion for sterling Du ch qualities and a passionate love for any relic perpetu ating the connection of the Dutch with the Cape. His two silver snuff boxes belonging to former governors of the Cape, when 1: was a Dutch possession are much piized by him. On? cele brates the victory cf the Tam ius Dutch admiral. Loutman, over Admiral Par ker, on August IT. 1781. t'pon it there are carved the s'hiLs of Loutman's fleet, the flags and names of his captain? and a belieos? inscription. The other box contains the insorlpeion "De Jan Ro d.enpO'Ots Foren le Ameiterdai.n. in de Tare 1772, Johan WiJIens, GeHxwan, 1742." He has in his possession the seal of the old WatertKer Urtqua. republic a country now known as Grtqualacl West, an'd Interesting as being the scene of Ltird Metheun's severe fight ing. The discovery of diamonds in the Waterboei- territory made it valuia-ble and led to bitter discussions between England, ..he fr.3 state and the Trans vaal. The seal of the Orange Free State, which he also ow ns, relates to the time when England possesse.i sovereign rights over the republic. British sover eignty was withdrawn, from the terri tory between the Orange and Vail riv ers in February, l.S"4, and the inhabit ants were left to form a government in any manner than they ch. This they did by at once resolving them selves into a republic, which has ben maintained up to the present day. This seal bears eloquent testimony to Brit ish sovereignty, for written round the royal coat of arms are the words: "VliHor-a Die Gratia. Britannia, Reg.. F. D." Most people remember the downfall of Lobengula the Mataoele king, and the substitution of civilized government for the most absolute despotism in Pouith Africa. Cecil Rhodes owns his official seal. It is of solid silver, made in the form cf an elephant. The ma trix, similar of form, has the inscrip tion. "Lobengula. King of Matabele and Mashona Lands." One of the most curious of Lobengu la's treasures was a solid silver drink ing cup of the form of an elephant. This cup was given to the savage chief by the Tati company, a corporation constituted under f ir Jc'in Swinburne in 1S6S to prospc: for gold in his terri tory. The savage but noble owner was I exceedingly proud i f this p-.ssession, ' and many a long draught of cham pagne he had from it. Other inter;st i ing curies conencted with Lobengula j now in Cecil Rhodes' collection are the two-handled drinking .tankard, inscrib j ed upon it being: "CLobengula. King I of the Amandabele. It halds two quarts, a faet which speaks eloquently I of the king's thirst. Mr. Rhodes has tried i:o drain it at one ' draught, but j failed, though not ignominiously. j The king was very fond of smoking I native grown tobacco, called "inyokag wai." so a few admirers of the dusky I potentate presented a pip to him.

A demure and' handsvime little Japan ese woman, a native of Tokio, is en rolled at Adrian college for the term about to commence. Staid students of the other sex at this theological insti tution w ill be sorely tempted to make "goo-goo eyes" at Miss Tei Morita, for Tei Morita is a maiden fair to see. She learned the language and customs of Americana of an Adrian woman. Miss Hattie Crittenden, who went to Yokohama as a missionary and teach er: and between the two there arose such an intimacy and friendship that when Miss Crittenden came back to America on a vacation. Tei came too. During the past summer this ambi tious little graduate from the rice fields of Toklo has not been idle. Money co Ierfect her coveted education has been needed so she has given many Japan ese entertainments and teas at different points in Michigan and Ohio, where she had become acquainted. At the close of the "talk" an opportunity has always been given the guests for "chipping in" when Miss Tei passed the hat. The collections have been very gencrou9. Several well-known society ladies in Adrian have furnished the room in thu women's dormitory at the college for the n?v student. Miss Tei's past is very sid. Married and wealthy at 17. Forty servants. Cruel husband who compelled her to work in the rice fields until she was so ill a long seige in the hospital was nec cessary. This cruelty under some pro cess of law in the land gave her a di vorce. She has a son in Japan, but is allowed to assume, her maiden name. She is now 28. Detroit News. REFLECTIONS OF A BACHELOR.
