J. B. REID TALKS Fruits and Vegetables Entered as Exhibits of Food for Home Con sumption Must Be Free From Acids — Fruits and vegetables entered as ex hibits of food for home consumption at the Alabama state fair this fall must be j free from acids and all preserving fluids, stated Mrs. J. B. Reid, superintendent of the Women’^Department of the Ala bama Slate Fair and Exhibit associa tion, yesterday. Mrs. Reid also said that the building formerly used for this department of the fair would be rearranged this fall so as to give much more floor space. She Indi cated that tho entire second floor would be covered, doing away with the present large hole in the center of this floor iwhich makes it more in the nature of a mezzanine. The space for booths is going fast and Mrs. Reid says there are but a few left. “Booth makers are asked to apply for space at once/'* she said yesterday. “AH church societies who engage their lunch stand or bazaar space before April 1 and make a 60%er cent deposit by June 1 will be credited with an extra $5 on their contracts. “Tho programme of the Women’s De partment of tho fair is being rapidly out lined and the map of the building ar ranged to accommodite a much larger exhibit than heretofore. With the renewed energies and extended interests among the exhibitors founded on past success, it Is evident that the exhibit of the fair of 1913 will far exceed any previous fair. Already much space has been spoken for and we have only a few individual booth spaces remaining unclaimed. Wo are anxious for others contemplating making booths or church bazaars to com municate with me during the week; be fore the catalogue data is ready for print. Then again an interchange of ideas and suggestions will be beneficial to each. “No, indeed,” she said, when asked If her booths would be shaped as they were last year, "we have something entirely | new this year. We have not dared put it I down on paper for fear our secret would j get out and you know the women always have something different at the Alabama State Fair. ! ‘■The state correspondence indicates al ready activity in planting and making ex tensive preparations for canning and pre serving vegetables and fruits. The man agement, realising the need of training people to live at home, has decided to demand for exhibits such materials free from acids and fluids tor preserving and canning and all the judges will be in structed along these lines. However, j when the orchard product or vegetable j Is to be exhibited only to show the per- 1 fection of the products and not submitted | under the head of premiums for home ; consumption, there will be no objection to such an exhibitor using canning or preserving fluids. This will only be per mitted when ail that is desired is to show 1 I the value or possibilities of an orchard or certain plant.” GRAY DENOUNCES CLARENOARROW Bitter in Attack in Closing Argument of Bribery Trial Los Angeles, March 4.—A bitter ex coriation of Clarence S. Harrow marked the opening oY arguments in the trial of the Chicago lawyer for alleged jury bribery on behalf of the McNamaras. The taking of testimony closed shortly I before noon today and former Judge Wheaton A. Gray, who has acted as special prosecutor, begun the closing argument for the state. Each side will consume eight hours, Harrow closing !for the defense and Assistant District Attorney Ford for the prosecution. ! Gray, in the course of Ills denuncia tion of the defendant, referred to him as "the greatest power for evil in the United States today.” Attacking those who associated with him, he called Harrow "the god of their idolatry and the dime novel hero of their worship.” Other names applied to the defendant were “moral idiot” and "self-confessed witness briber.” The speaker referred constantly to what he called Harrow's "simpering smile” and of his oratorical ability he said: “The minute he gets Ills fox eyes on some people and snivels a few things through ills nose, they fall prostrate at his feet.” PAINTER G.OES TO CAPITAL TODAY Has Been Doing Some Preliminary Work for Hobson’s Senatorial Campaign in Jrfferaon Phil Painter, the well known young at torney. leaves for Washington early this ntornlng for a consultation with Congress man Richmond Pcarsoa Hobson. Mr. Painter has been in charge in Jefferson county of the preliminaries of the com ing Hobson campaign to wrest the sena torial toga from the shoulders of Joseph F. Johnston, and goes to Washington for a conference with his chief on the future plans of Congressman Hobson for this county. Mr. Painter asserted before leaving that he would do all he could to Induce Mr. Hobson to come to Birmingham on March 13, to attend the Newspaper club ban quet. "Mr. Hobson lias written me that he would not be able to bo In Birming ham for the ‘Press Dinner,’ owing to the extra session of Congress," he said, "but I believe that perhaps he may change his mind after It has been Impressed upon him the Importance of Ills being In at tendance at this gieat affair the news paper boys of Birmingham are getting up." Contrary to current report, Mr. Painter does not expect an appointment in the consular service and neither Is he a candi date for such uri appointment. He did not deny, however, that the appointment as a foreign attache to an embassy would be pleasing to him. He will return from Washington on Saturday. GBAKl'LATEO EYELIDS CLUED.

CUBA TO ERECT NEW Bids Submitted to Council Turned Down—Work to Be Rushed Cuba, March 4.—(Special)—At the regu lar meeting of the town council held to day, all bids for the construction of the new school building were turned down and the secretary of the council in structed to ask for bids for material to build the school house and to line up a lot of carp&iters, so that work may im mediately begin. A portion of the ma terial has already been contracted for and will be placed on the ground this week so that brick masons may begin on the pil lars In a few days. It is stated that the town authorities hope to have the new building ready for the next term of school. The closing of the Klntcrbish Industrial colored school was held recently and a number of the white people of the com munity participated. This school enjoys the novel distinction of teaching a great deal of farming, and has for its principal object the keeping of the negro boys on the farm, and has accomplished a great deal of good. The negroes have raised enough money, aided by the white people, to make a payment on a body of land tligtt it is proposed to use for a demon- I stration farm.

FORMER PRESIDENT BIDS FAREWELL TO LONG PUBLIC LIFE (Continued From Page One) he was hurried in one of the AVhite House cars from the back of the White House down through the Mall and over back streets, hundreds of those on the side walks who recognized him cheered lust ily. He was forced to break through the line of march in front of the capitol to get to the union station, and the massed thousands forgot the parade for a moment to pay their last tribute of applause. At the station most of the members ot the Taft cabinet and their wives and several close friends of Mrs. Taft were waiting. Miss Helen wept gently as the farewells were said and the eyes of some of the others were tar from dry. With all the ceremony that has attended his departure on other occasions, the roped wide passageway across the broad con course, the scores of station police, the secret service men and his former aide, Maj. Thomas L. Rhoads, with his spurs [clicking on the stone. Mr. Taft marched through a cheering throng to his train.

Although he was up until 3 o'clock this morning, he slept only four hours and j was at his study desk again to wind up ] the business of ills administration. He ; worked, with only a few minutes for breakfast, until Mr. Wilson started from his hotel to the White House. He spent j an hour in the President's room in the Senate side of the capitol signing bills, vetoing others and in between times talk ing with Mr. Wilson and with senators and representatives who paid their last call. At the White House luncheon the Presi dent sat and chatted for 10 minutes with ' Mrs. Wilson, lie left by the south door ! and his last view of the mansion came as his automobile shot down through the Mall.

Morales volunteered his services as gov ernment messenger to take peace pro posals from the government to Emillano Zapata, the rebel leader whose exact whereabouts are unknown. Morales, wearing an enormous som brero and in otherwise typical bandit garb, called this morning ori Provisional President Huerta who greeted the Zapa tista chieftain with a Mexican embrace.

W. Hoyle, head decorator for the store, received a telegram from Washington, Pa., convey ing the news of the death of his little daughter.

It has been closely followed by an area of high pressure, that on tonight’s map overlies the plains states and the upper Mississip pi volley. It has been attended by fair weather ami falling temperatures, its in fluence being noted fw the clearing condi tions throughout most of the great cen tral basin at. 7 p. m. and in lower tem peratures over the plains states, the upper Mississippi valley and the great lakes. Temperatures have risen generally west of the Rocky mountains during the past 21 hours, due to the Influence of the "low" that extends over that section. Freezing weather prevailed at 7 p. m. in the upper Mississippi valley, th- Rake region, and the St. I.awmenee valley, while In most of the central and southern sections readings at that hour ranged near 50 degrees. In the southern slates there is hut slight baromeiric gradient and as a result weather conditions have changed but slightly since Monday night. The skies have cleared generally west of Alabama, and as the "high" moves eastward it is thought that the continued cloudiness over central and eastern sections will give way to) fair skies. Rain has fallen from Birmingham north, including most of the mountain districts. Wednesday will prob ably be fair and slightly colder In this section, although unsettled conditions may continue for a portion of the day.

E. C. HORTON, Local Forecaster. SENATOR BANKHEAD WILL BE CONSULTED In Regard to Proposed Invi tation to Good Roads Federation Upon the arrival in this city of United States Senator John H. Bankhead, presi dent of the National Good Roads Federa tion. it will be finally determined whether o.- not this association will hold a con vention in Birmingham the latter part or April during the Potlatch Festival cele bration. The good roads committee of the Cham ber of Commerce met yesterday after noon at the chamber headquarters and discussed the matter of sending an invi tation to the federation. The feature of the meeting was the de velopment of the fact that if the federa tion is brought here invitations will also be extended to delegates from every other national good roads association in the country, with the idea in view of forming a consolidation. This feature will be dis cussed with Senator Bankhead when he arrives in Birmingham within the next few days. He has stated that he would leave Washington immediately after the inauguration. It is claimed that in the United States there are several national bodies striving for practically the same thing along this line and the object of the move contem plated at the convention which may be held here is that all these may unite and operate as one association, with tlie idea that by co-operation there are better re sults obtained. Senator Bankhead is president of the National Good Roads lederation. John W. O’Neill, president of the Ala bama State Good Roads association and also president of the Jefferson county association, presided at the committee meeting yesterday and is strongly inter ested in securing the convention during the Potlatch. The entire Chamber of Commerce will support the invitation when it is ex tended by President O’Neill. The only drawback feared by the committee is that the time may be too short for the different national organizations to get to gether and appoint delegates to the Bir mingham consolidation* meeting. PLEA OF MISNOMER IS UPHELD BY FORT Plea of misnomer was sustained yes terday by Judge W. E. Fort of the crim inal court In the case of Henry Bowman, negro, charged with murder.
