EIGHT DAY FAIR
IN KIRKUD'S SUIT
THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH 21, 1911
There is a remarkable interest
in Home Baking and Cooking
throughout the land.
This is a most encouraging in
dication that the battle against
impure, improper food is going
to be won.
The credit for the victory will
belong to the women of the
Home cooking has the backing
of science and the approval of
fashion. It adds to housekeeping a
pride; to our food, healthfulness.
It is acknowledged by experts,
and by the women who know,
that the best cooking in the
world to-day is with the. aid of
Royal Baking Powder.

It is quite probable lhat quite a
' change w ill he made in the abearance
. of the Fair Grounds this year.
' At their meeting yesterday, the Fair
Commissioners considered the advis
' ability of changing the half mile track
. to a seven-eighths. The idea is to
mifke a track all the way round and
i just inside of the mile track for run
; ning races.

and more an attraction at the State
Fair. At the last Fair there were

j year. If it is decided to have an eight
I day Fair, the Fair will open on Satur
day, November Tlh and there will be a
running race program for the afternoon
of the 7th. On Sunday, the eighth.
there will be no program but the gates
will be throw open in the afternoon
so that visitors can view the exhibits
in the various departments.
The regular racing program would
begin on Monday, November H, as u
sual. It is practically certain lhat another
extension will be made in the grand
stand. The records of last year show
that scarcely one-half the people at
tending the Fair, occupied grandstand
seats; on automobile day. not more
than one-fourth of them could find ac
commodations in the grandstand.
The commission also considered the
pro)Msition of fencing off several acres
of ground east of the agricultural and
dairy building for the parking of au-
tomobiles. This would also provide a
j space for automobiles who convey pas
i sengers for hire to and fro from the
j Fair Grounds nnd stop the inevitable
congestion at tbe tront gate.

to gather data and make estimates for
these various improvements, and see
H. J. Kirkland's suit against thr
O'Neills went into another stage in
federal court yesterday when the at
torneys finished putting in their tes

shortly before noon, and Judge Saw

until after the briefs are submitted.
The plaintiff has now until the
middle of April to submit the fir.-it
brief. The end of April is the tiiy.e
limit imposed tor the entering of the
defend" nt's brief, and the reply brief
of the plaintiff must be in by the
first week in Mav.
This ends the testimony in one of
'.he most interesting land suits that
has come up in federal court for a
long time. Kirkland is suing for the
recovery of properly deeded to Vil

Iliady O'Nei!!, who, with Mrs. O'Neill
is defendant. The property was

Mabel arose on election morn,
As proud as a bird with a new tin horn,
For she was to cast a vote, and she
Was filled with angelic ecstacy.
She felt that men were as common clay
Did she on that glorious woman's day;
That she was the equal before the law
Of any mere man she ever saw.
She dressed herself with unusual care
From her dainty feet to her fluffy hair.
Tn a party machine she would not ride,
But would walk to the polls in her
She started forth with a dashing swing
As gay as the jay bird on the wing.
A milliners window caught her eye.
And she never on earth could pass
Stopped into the waiting spiders net,
To try on a hat. 'Twas early yet.
She spent i n hour 'mid the fairy show
Then happened to think she beat had
Some gowns in a window lay in wait
For folks that would bite at such a

Before a houseful of enthusiastic
Coyotes and their friends and parents,
the Superior Sex of the Phoenix Union
High School last evening presented the
foolish farce "Superior Sex." for the
benefit of the University Week con
testants and members of the track

good time. They went, and there was
no Coyote or Coyote's friend who did
not have a good time. The production
j was under the direction of Miss M. T.
Moses, of the public speaking depart -I
ment, and the Boosters Club, an organ
ization of girls, were the main spirit

"A Hint to the Housekeeper"
Of course there are house furnishings, as well as wearing ap
parel, that are to be stowed away for the summer months and
the question arises as to the proper precaution to be observed
for their preservation.
ft is a well known fact that the more dust and grime allowed to
remain on and in the weaving of a fabric the greater the fabric
and colorings suffer, so it is therefore apparent that the removal
of all dust, soot, smoke and grease is an actual necessity to the
proper preservation of articles to be stored.
If the removal of these and other fabric destroying agencies
could be effected by a mere brushing then all would be well, but
this is a physical impossibility without the aid of certain me

In June of last year gold was found in paying quantities on the Chisana, or what is commonly known as
the Shushana river, which is in southwestern Alaska and a tributary of the Tanana, which is the largest tribu
tary of the Yukon river. It was some time before news of the discovery reached the outside world, and then
hundreds of prospectors appeared on the scene. This wap late in th season, and as there were no mining,
implements in camp, very little prospecting was done. Enough was accomplished, however, to prove that the
new fields are very rich in gold. . . ;
