Then the exhibits can be seen by ev eryone who attend the fair and a spe cial trip will not be necessary to see I it No admission fee will be charged j but the general admision to the fatr i grounds will be a pass to the exposi tion of home products. Several manu facturers who were not represented be fore will have exhibits this year and negotiations are under way for others. “The home products building. in which this exhibit is to be held, is sit uated directly between the large main building and the grandstand. Owing to its accessibility, practically every vis itor to the fair can and will see it. “From what I have heard of the plans of the exhibitors this is going to be a most interesting show. Some of them will have moving exhibits, showing the actual processes of man uiactuve. These are always interesting and worth a good long trip to see. The eye is the best education.
