ceded to the United States from which
were formed the states of Ohio. Indi

was contrary to the terms of the ce
sesslon. Virginia's interest in the
lands reserved amounted to one-sev

the state proceed to recover this.

Down at Sblprick agency, in one
corner of the great Navajo reserva
tion. where a tew thousand Indians
live in a kingdom that is larger than
ail the New England states comotned,
the natives are still talking of (hell
first annual fair, which was hclffOct
20 aud 21, says a Denve. correspond
ent of the New Orleans himes Demo
The fair was "all same white
man’s,” even to displays of pumpkins.
Not the baby show was over
looked, and Lenna Oliver, who re
ceived a prize of fifty pounds of flour
for exhibiting the cleanest baby, and
Lillie She-Da-Zia, who received The
same sort of p reward for exhibiting
the prettiest papoose, are the proud
est squaws on the reservation. Big
Charley, an industrious Navajo, whose
irrigated farm would be the envy ot
many a white rancher, won the prize
for the biggest and best pumpkins,
his trophy being a shovel, while the
other prize pumpkin exhibitors, de-
Ivo-Wat-So-Gee, Car-Nan Eze-Be-Nl and
Att-Cit-Y-Be-Ga carried off a mattock,
grub hoe and garden hoe in the order
The Navajus have been noted tor
years as the most industrious of In
dians, but the fair at the Bhfprock
agency was the first public exhibi
tion of their handiwork. The trine
became self-supporting many years
ago. Some of the Navajos have waxed
wealthy from the sale of blankets
and silverware trinkets, for not only
are they the greatest blanket weav
ers In the world, hut they are silver
smiths of the first class.
It Was a Regular County Fair.
Superintendent W. T. Shelton ot
| ‘he Shiprock agency came to the
((inclusion that a genuine “county
, talr” on old fashioned lines would be
a good thing to stimulate the inter
est of the Indians in their farm work
and other industrial enterprises.
Word was sent out by the Indian po
lice, twelve of whom guard the des
tinies of the upper part of the great
reservation, and, though the tribe
had only two weeks' notice, the ex
hibition hall was filled with a very
creditable line of farm products, not
to speak of a display of genuine Nav
ajo blankets and silversmith work
that would make the eyes of a dealer
sparkle with delight. The blankets
and silverwork exhibits were worth,
It Is estimated, close to SIOO,OOO
The Navajos are great judges ot vai
uscs in these lines and some of the
blankets were family heirlooms that
would not be parted wltb at any
Of general exhibits at the Navajo
fair there were 290. The corn ex
hibit numbered 185, the wheat exhib
its 73, oats 47, melons 90, squash
and pumpkins 100, potatoes 30, al
falfa 24, teams of work horses 60,
saddle horses 45, pretty babies (JO,
native blankets 230, Germantown
blankets 25. There were numerous
exhibits of sheep and goats, of which
the Navajos have great herds.
The sports consisted of footraces,
horse races and native games and
amusements and in the evening tne
Indians gave their ceremonial and
sacred dances, which proved most In
teresting to the visitors. The long
est foot race was five aud one-halt
miles and so terrific was the pace
that only four out of thetwelve who
entered finished the race.
Exhibits Brought in Wagons.
Some of the exhibits were brought
nearly 100 miles in wagons. One lot
or fifty general exhibits Trom sa-
Noos-Tee, in the vicinity of Noel s
uading post, far away in the desert,
deserved especial mention. TtHs lot
contained the prize-winning assort
ment of silver work. None ot the
products raised at Shiprock, under
the supervision of government em
ployes, was allowed to compete with
the products of the Indian ranefiers.
It was the idea of Superintendent
Shelton to make the fair something
that would demonstrate the actual
progress that is being made by the
tribe as a whole. The prizes weri
all useful and the Indians were far
prouder over the gifts of farm im
plements and household necessities
than they would have been over the
ribbons and gold medals.
Eor the best general display ot
farm products, Bar-Ber-Bit-Cilly ’ won
first prize, a double harness. The
best general display of Indian pio
ducts brought Gar-Na-Nezi-Be TTi a
corn drill and for the best native
blanket, all wool, Kin-Le-Che-Ne re-j
ceived a cook stove, while for the 1
best Germantown blanket Non-Co-De- 1
Re-Tah received a washtub. Tne j
melon exhibit was astounding - anti'
great piles of melons were placed in j
rows in the scSoolhouse yard, to tie
feasted upon at will by the visiting j
Indiana. De-Be-Ue-Tah was the prize
winner among the melon raisers, re- i
reiving a shovel for his display.
Under New Type of Indian Agent.
Shiprock agency, which is located
in San Juan county, New Mexico, Is
in charge of \V. T. Shelton, who has
looked after the affairs of the Nava
jos in that section for about six years
it may be stated parenthetically that
the old-time type of Indian agent—a
type that wrought nothing but harm
to the red men—has vanished utterly
from western reservations. It will be
tJHiud. almost without exception, that
these posts are filled with earnest,
conscientious men whose sole idea is
to advance the nation's red wards
that are under their charge. Some
of them meet with greater success
than others owing to the material
with which they have to work. Some
tribes are slow to adopt the white
man’s ways, but others, like the Na
vajos, learn readily and are naturally
industrious and their advancement
has been phenomenal. Mr. Shelton
represents the newer type of Indian
agent and during his incumbency 01
Shiprock has won the complete con
fidence of the Indians. He has made
the agency a model of its kind. Tne
school buildings are of brick and
stone. They are arranged about a
considerable tract, surrounded by
well-kept lawns and attractive flower
beds. Adjoining are well-kept veget
able gardens and hay and grain fields,
orchards and pastures. A greenhouse
has recently been completed and is
in charge of one of the Indian boys
who has shown great capability as
a florist. There is a hospital, dining
hall, blacksmith shop and laundry,
most of the work being done by tne
pupils themselves. A pumping plant
supplies water to all buildings and
the agency is lighted by gas An
artificial ice plant is operated during
the long hot summer -months and a
ntar-by coal mine is operated under
the supervision of an experienced
miner, providing fuel for a good share
of the tribe. A sawmill is operated
in the timber west of the agency
and the Navajos are using an in
creasing amount of lumber to im
prove their habitations.
New York Times—lt grieves us to
note that the Springfield Republican
refuses to accept as adequate our ex
planation of the similarity that
marked Commander Peary’s desertp
ton of polar conditions and the guess
at them made by Dr. Cook, it in
sists that the commander was by no
means as nearly sure as we said that
he would find only water and ice at
the pole. Did he not, it asks, spend
not a little of his time while at the
pole in scanning the horizon with his
telescope to see if he could see any
signs of land, and did he not burden
himself _in his northward journey
with a weight and line for taking
soundings? He did, he did, but in his
narative he spoke of "possible land,"
not of land expected or probable, ana
we are obstinate enough to think that
the sounding line supports our con
tention as to the safety of Dr. Cook's
assumption, rather than the Republi
can's as to its danger.
But, insists the Republican, it
wasn’t only as to the absence of land
at the pole that Dr. Cook agreed witn
Commander Peary; both of them
also said that as the pole was ap
proached the road grew smoother and
that on reaching their destination
they found rather warm weather for
that part ot the world. So there were
three "strange coincidences” instead
of one.
Again we see the coincidence, but
not the strangeness. Every traveler
on the polar ice cap has noted the
easily explicable smoothing of his
road, not as he drew near the pole,
but as he went farther and farther
from the iand, where tho disturbance
ot the ice would naturally be greatest,
owing to inteiterence with its drift.
As for the mildness of the poiar tem
perature, there was not the slightest
reason why anybody should expect
the weather at the pole to be worse
than or different from the weather
elsewhere on the ice cap—and the
season was advancing, the sun get
ting higher. What the one man
feared and the other had to keep in
mind was the difficulty caused by
open leads, not a special chill in tne
air at a spot different from other spots
in that region ouly in that the geog
raphers, in mapping it, make a lot of
imaginary lines that 1 ave nothing to
do with temperature converge there.
Dr. Cook didn't know very much,
but he knew that in ail probability
there was deep water at the pole,
that the ice was better there than
just off the coast, and that as a rule
the weather in the northern hemi
sphere is warmer in April than in
March. So do all three of the Repub
lican's "strange coincidences" lose tne
quality that keeps it from frankly
and humbly admitting that it was
w rong lor once.

not justify the sweeping generalities
with which the Times originally at
tacked the Republican's case, nor.
does it at all explain how Cook man- ’
aged to make three such extraordi

conditions. The Times will have to

it can hope to clean up the Republi

Madison, Jatt. 25.
When Governor Davidson appeared
at the executive cnamber yesterday,
the first time since hts return from
his visit to Washington, he found a
new and pleasing duty, that of meet
ing Governor Glasscock of West Vir
ginia, and members of the state board
of control of that state and the re
gents of West Virginia university,
who called to visit briefly and view the
ne<v capitol building. The visitors
were pleased with their reception and
overflowing in praise of the badger
state and its enterprise.
Later, speaking of his visit (o
Washington, Governor Davidson said
that the conference of governors did ]
not accomplish much at the session
recently closed. "At the same time,”!
j he said, “I believe that in the end
! these conferences of the governors of I
i the different states will result in a
\ great deal of benefit for the people. !
"There were some 32 governors in j
attendance at the meeting and a wide;
! range of subjects were discussed dur-|
! ing the three days we were together, j
"On taking the chair on the last;
i afternoon I spoke of Wisconsin's ad-,
] vanced legislation on the pure food,
i proposition, and while it was so late |
in the conference that much time
could not be given the subject, I feel
encouraged from the general interest
shown to feel that other states will
rally to the Wisconsin standard on the
issue when I bring the subject up for
consideration at the next conference,
which will be held somewhere between
thanksgiving and the holidays next
winter, in time to permit the govern
ors to use the material there suggest-j
ied in their messages to the legisla-!
! tures of their respective states.”
Gave 1 nor 27frtthiffJr'tAS*-. J
| consin has gone farther than the gen
eral government or any of the other
j states In its pure food legislation. We
j have fixed a standard for food pre
! parations by law and have forbidden
1 the use of benzoate of soda, giving the
; people the benefit of whatever doubt
• may exist as to the action of that
! chemical in food preservation. "Per
sonally, I believe Mr. Roosevelt was
duped by the commission in the stand
j taken on that preservative and I am
sure Wisconsin is not prepared to
take any backward step in the mat
’ ter,” said Governor Davidson.
"While I consider the outrage of the

, points of exceeding interest to the
governors. For instance, it was found
that only the governors of New York
and of Wisconsin have the power un
der their state laws to remove county
officers for cause, and two other gov
ernors expressed their desire to have
this power, although I told them that
the time would probably come when
they would have occasion to wish
themselves without it.
"The registratioa of automobiles
was another sub|eet given much at

peared that a number of the states.
especially the eastern states with
their good roads laws ate far ahead
of us in their regulation and taxation
of automobiles. I think this is a sub
ject which might well be taken up by
the legislature of our state."
Governor Davidson said that other
states are ahead of us in some re
spects and by conferring with the ex-!
ecutlves of those commonwealths we
all get ideas which will prove of bene

way in which those conferences may
be made effective.

"THe waterpower question was dis
cussed at-our meeting, and many of
the governors, especially from the
western states, showed a disposition
to fight the proposition of government
control as opposed to state control,
showing a disposition to stand val
iantly for states’ rights in the mat
ter. I called their attention to the
fact, that the national go eminent has
shown no disposition to interfere in
any way with Wisconsin, and as we
understand it, congress confines any
such intention to places where 'he
general government itself owns the
land, which is a very different propo
sition and one in which I can see no

The fashion plate doll is doomed,
say the toymakers. So far they haven't
convinced the toy dealers, and the
Christinas windows will show plenty
of large and expensively dressed
dolls with snug round faces, black and
blue eyes and rosy cheeks. But next

ufacturer —the dolls with the dough
faces will not stand even second to
the new kind coming out of Germany.
Some of tbese dolls are on the Ameri

The new doll, the invention of a
Munich woman, Marion Kaulitz, is
known as the character doll, and it is
having a tremendous vogue in Ger
many. Instead 1 of a doll with a blank,
lifeless face, begowned and berib
boned, her dolls have Individuality
and they are dressed just a.< the
children who play with them are
dressed every day.
"Children who are guided by good,
healthy instincts." says the inventor,
“turn away from the unnatural dolls
dressed out of all reason. This is seen
in the often-noted fact that many a
little girl will leave her fine new- doll
to caress and play with her old every
day one, legrimmed instead of be
gowned. A child is always shy when
the visitor’s well-i Yessed little girl is
ushered in upon her, and she never
plays in real earnest with her until
they meet on equal terms in the sand

turned out by hundreds. One of the
first to purchase a doll was the em
press, who wanted a little boy dressed
in gaudy stripes with a reai, whole

the youngest son of the crown prince.
Since then the new doll craze has been
sweeping the empire.
The toy men say that this opens
up an entirely new world of doll pos
