What Crop Exhibits Accomplish The facts are that had judgment and care been exercised in select ing and arranging the Seward county exhibits, she would have made a strong bid for first honors. To the local real estate men be longs the honor of placing Seward county on the map in this instance. At their own expense they collect ed the exhibits and installed the same at the fair, and put L. D. Weidensaul in charge. The pur pose being to show what this coun try produces, rather than entering the contest for state awards, but after the exhibits were iustalled, the effort was so pleasing it was decided to enter the same as a county exhibit, and the award jus tifies the effort. Now the question arises, shall we sit down in the future and drift back into obscu rity for the want of advertising or shall we double the effort and, by so doing, attain a permanent place in the front ranks of the great agricultural counties of Kansas) 1 say take the latter course and not lay down till old Seward coun ty is placed in the galaxy of the splendid counties of Kansas. To accomplish this, I would suggest the holding of a county fair dur ing the week proceeding the state fair and from the best exhibits at the county fair, select the exhibits for the state fair. This would be the simplest and most effective method of handling the proposi tion. The writer spent eight days at the Hutchinson State Fair nnd during the time was observant of what others were doing to accom plish results and has come to the conclusion that there is no excel lence without efforts. Among the things noted was a very fine dis play of agricultural exhibits from the Saskatchewan province of Can ada. The display is under govern ment supervision and at govern ment expense. No effort is spared to present the best features of this province to the best advantage. The exhibits are supplemented with descriptive literature, and the man in charge told the writer that similar efforts last year directed the attention of one hundred thou sand farmers to his province in six months. The Commercial Club of Lamar, Colorado,also presented a high class exhibit which was the subject of much comment and ad miration. Montrose and the San Louis Valley region in Colorado, had excellent displays, and all agreed that it was one of the best methods of presenting the advan tages of their country. Industrial exhibits were also much in evi dence. Many of the manufacturers of farm machinery paid as high as $1200 for the privilege of dis playing their machinery on the fair grounds. It pays them and it will pay Seward county, and it is my best judgment that the thing to do, is to get in the game, pull off a county fair here next fall, and crown the effort by pre senting a winning exhibit at the state fair next year. It is the men that do things that accomplish results. Liberty Items The Sunday school convention held at Liberty schoolhouse, was well attended and much interest was manifested by all. I. O. Suell, wife and little son left last Friday for Omaha, Nebr. for an extended visit. Marion Carson spent Sunday evening with Wm. Dale. Win. Carson left last Monday for his old home in Ohio, called there by the serious illness of his sister. - Mr. Gentzler spent last Tuesday in Liberal. Mrs. Emily left last Tuesday for Meade county for a short visit. From there she will return to her home in Anderson county. Harlow Corkins is busy cutting feed. Wm. Dale has been suffering rom a sand burr in his hand, Frank Hay ward has been shock ing feed for Wm. Graim. Auto Excursion departments in the enormous or ganization, and you will under stand that I now feel as if I was indeed one of the family. Per haps the most pleasant part of the whole time was the evening I spent at Mr. Flander's home on Green Lake. There Mr. Flander's owns about 1200 acres of beautiful rolling hills and lakeside property. In fact, his property completely surrounds Green Lake. There he likes to think he is a farmer, and there he gets his recreation and relaxation from the arduous duties of managing the largest automo bile factory in the world. "To know Mr. Flanders at his home, one could not imagine that he is the administrator of a con cern doing $50,0000,000.00 a year. He is a true American of the New England type and to meet him once is to know him under all conditions. I was pleased to find that he so thoroughly conversant with all my own affairs and n anxious to help me out in my lit tle difficulties." 'We are going to try to give you as many automobiles as you will be able to sell,' said Mr. Flan ders. "After walking for hours at a time thru great lanes of machinery and seeing hundreds of millions of dollars worth of stock in process of manufacture, I am thoroughly convinced that we will be 'more nearly able to meet the demand for Flanders "20", and E-M-F "30" cars next year than we have ever been before. Of course, that is not saying e will have enough. "The demand always seems to keep ahead of the supply on these cars, and while 'the shortage of E-M-F "30's" was the most ser ious problem last yenr, it looks as if Flanders "20" is going to be our chief problem this year, be cause this car is now the most popular car in America and its wonderful performance in road contests and hill climbing is in creasing its popularity daily." Mr. Trindle was enthusiastic in his description of Detroit, which is the world's greatest automobile center as well as one of the most beautiful cities in America. We devoted several hours to driving about the several parks and boule vards of Detroit, and our trip to Mr. Flander's home and back, was over thirty-two miles of road, a part of which over the beautiful Bloomfield Hills. Few places in America have more charms than this. And, what with the sight seeing and charming hospitality of Mr. Flanders and his delightful little wife, to say nothing of the trip there and back on the luxu rious special train, I felt more like a millionaire who had been on a pleasant vacation, than one who had been on a business trip.
