At Grand Forks and *S»* at Fargo the exhibit will be some k»What strengthened, and there will be fe larger number of assistants than at .'f^the local county fairs. The weed collection prepared by ^Dean Bolley makes an attractive wall exhibit. Those weeds particularly In v Jurious to crops are mounted, together with brief, definite directions as to their control. The effect of chemical sprays is illustrated by placing spray- v *d and unsprayed plants side by side. y-' One series of considerable interest •at,e -x this time is the flax fibre display, brepared to show the possibilities of linen fibre production in North Da- Jcota. One cannot study this particu -^lar exhibit without coming to the con lesion that North Dakota can pro- V*uce a flax fibre of excellent quality, «Whenever the farmer is willing to If Sacrifice the seed yield to that end. •jf A feature that calls out much fa vorable comment is the library table made in the wood shop by Miss Sadie vi* Parrett, and shown as part of the rr*- wood working exhibit.

A freat deal of interest was shown in this exhibit, especially among the oys. fr, Professor Wlllard recently complet- Id a soil map of the state. It shows •v |he area where a certain kind of soli to be found, and tells briefly what it is go^d for.

This map hangs v. fen the wall, and is accompanied by 4' fpU samples which show the character 411 the soils described. Two dozen excellent views illustrate Khe work of the college. These give a panoramic effect that is not lost on Itoe visitor, and add very materially to the variety and interest of the general inhibit. A series of maps showing the 'Ibrious phases of college extension 'tells one that there were during the jfear just closed 1,265 students in the Agricultural college, and where they .... came from that there are 187 state V papers and a large number of outside tonal i-pers taking the news and informa matter that is sent out weekly fey the college that twenty-one dem onstration farms, and Ave sub-stations "Sssists the Fargo station to gather in formation valuable to the farmer, and ftp spread that information where it •#lll be of direct and immediate ser vice. Besides these there are maps Showing the counties holding corn, potato and strawberry contests. It is .^Interesting to note that the counties west of the river and to the north of Dlvls Lake have a strong representa tion in the corn work. One map that brought out a good many inquiries was J* that showing the co-operative work. To explain that in detail would take up more space than the present write-up cun give, and it will be fully dealt with »ext week, but it may briefly be said rtjiat the farmers of the state are co- Operating with Professor Doneghue of the agricultural department in giving Information a# to the cost of produc ing crops under North Dakota condu ctions. They hand in weekly reports of vwork done, and expense incurred. This Work is as yet in its beginnings, but V promises some very valuable results. The food exhibit of the department Of chemistry will be one of the most interesting features of the college ex hibit. It came too late to be installed .at the Valley City fair, but will be at -jiamestowTi and subsquent fairs. The samples of grasses and grains Show a few of the standard variety, .taarket, and milling grades of wheat, oats, barley and other grains.

Koonomy of Costly Foo4f» Ttoe economy of expensive fftotfs Is explained by the fact that digestion, at least in man, is dependent upon flavors, without which it is so defec tive that we do not obtain the good of the food we swallow. As far as ex periments go, they substantiate these assertions, for the sight and smell of pleasing food start the flow of di gestive fluids, while disagreeable odors and sight stop it. Delicatessen, then, would seem to be staples, for they are necessary. The talk of being able to rajbslMt on a few cents a day ts simply nouseuse and leads t© deterioration of health.

D., July Ifc^-The report has Juet reached Grand Forks of a terrible accident which occurred last Thursday In the extreme south western part of the county, on the Slinden farm. A large company of friends and neighbors had gathered to colebrate the wedding of Martin H. Slinden and Miss Ragnhild Syverson, and for the occasion Peter Bakke, a young man 35 years of age, son of EUef Bakke, had devised a cannon from a piece of a boiler flue. He had successfully fired it off once, and tried to repeat the op eration, but it "hung fire." and think ing that it "was not going to explode, he approached and bent directly over the improvised cannon, and at the same instant, without the ^lightest warning, the terrible explosion occur red.

Spioed Currants/ Spiced currants make an excellent relish to serve with meats. Allow \o each pound of the fruit a pound of sugar. Make a syrup in the proportion of one pint of vinegar to each four pounds of sugar, two teaspoonfuls each of mace, cinnamon and allspice, a teaspoonful each of cloves and salt. When boiling add the currants, cook twenty minutes and put up in glasses ths same as jelly. When Estinf. One should not eat too quikly, should well masticate the food before it is swallowed and not overload the stom ach with large quantites of food. High ly seasoned dishes and ice-cold drinks irritate the stomach and may produce a catarrhal condition.

Ttolisn standing or walking ths effect of tallness may be decreased by a slight droop of the head. To allow the head to hang is extreme and ac complishes nothing beyond an unpleas ant appearance, while the tiniest droop can do wonders. There should be no stooping of the shoulders, however, for this will ruin the figure and make the girl most awkward. She should hold herself erect, though not stiffly so. Marvels may be done in taking off inches by the manner of hair dressing. If 8H« Had Not Married. Ths lover of euphonious female names must look back with regret to the eighteenth century with its fra grant memories of Belinda, Arabella and Amabel. Yet in Spain euphony is still preserved. Could you have a more beautiful name than Juan Maria los Delores de Leon? It is one of the ironies of history Chat the owner of these charming vocables was fated to be known in after life as Lady Smith and to bestow that much less attrac tive and euphonious title upon a town in South Africa. Ths Marital Grasshopper. What is a grasshopper? The latest definition comes from western Austra lia, Domestic servants are almost un procurable there, and wives have to do nearly all their own household work. The consequence is that they are compelled to recuperate at the seaside in summer. In their absence the husbands have to prepare their own meals and do domestic duty gen erally. Husbands so engaged havs come to be locally known as "grass hoppers." No doubt the word is the husband of the more familiar "grass widow."—London Chronicle. Bishop Pottsr*s Cornbrsad Rsoipan Among the many things that the late Bishop Potter knew was a flrst class recipe for cornbread. There Is nothing better and nothing easier to make well. Take one and one-quar ter cups of cornmeal to one quart of boiling water, one teaspoonful of salt and a dessert spoon of butter. Put all the materials into a big bowl, and pour over them the boiling wat«r, beating the mixture together thor oughly. Let it stand for ten or fif teen minutes before you pour it into buttered pans. It must not be more than an inch and a half thick, as ths cornbread Is the thin kind and must be baked brown and crisp. Cabinet Pudding. TMs is an excellent way to re mains of sponge cake.
