A minature farm has been estab lished at the AlaskarYukon-Pacific Exposition where the products of the state will be cultivated as an object lesson to the visitors to the fair at Seattle this summer.

There will also be demonstrations of the wonderful productiveness of the virgin soil of the state which will stand greatly in contrast with the worked out farms of the east. This condition will commend itself to the eastern farmer who visits the Fair. The very fact alone that two crops of potatoes can be priai need every year on the same ground in the l'uget Sound country is a fact that will probably surprise many easterners. The miniature farm has been platted into small rectangular blocks which have atlorded an excellent, opportunity for the good roads instructors and the art of beautifying the farms which will have the effect of making life on the farm and in the country more at tractive. Practical demonstrations of berry raising will also be made on the model farm.

Seattle is a Western gem, still some what in the rough in exteriors but as well governed and as moral as any city of the east. It is beautifully situated on Puget Sound, an arm of the Pacific Ocean, with the beautiful Cascade mountains on the east and the rugged Olympics on the West. It is a city of inspiring views and full of interest from the commercial standpoint; its waterfront scenes and the great public works now in progress being of unique attractiveness. The 300,000 people of Seattle are largely transplanted Easterners, South erners and Canadians. The represent the pioneer elements of these people and are the wells from which the Seattle spirit bubbles—the spirit which makes Seattle famous for the aocopi plisement of great things. The latest evidence of this spirit will be found by visitors in the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition which will be one of Seat tle's attractions this summer. The exposition will be the most unique ever given on the American continent and there is every indication that it will be both artistically and financially successful.

McDonald of this city, on Mon day afternoon, and interment was made in the Prairie View cemetery, wide acquaintance Hockersmith and the esteem in which she was held drew a throng of sympa thizing friends in attendance at the burial rites. The discourse by Rev. McDonald was most, impressive, vivid ly picturing the trancency of human life and dwelling on the sojourn here merely as a preparation and probation for the life to come. The deceased was horn in Harrison county, Missouri, J une 5, 1872, and was united in marriage to our fellow citizen, Mr. J. W. Hoekersmith, Feb. 14, 1892. In 1899 they removed to Grangeville where they have since re sided. Mrs. Hoekersmith was a member of the Artisan lodge of this place and an active worker in the order. The Arti sans, Mayor, City Council and Odd Fellows, of which latter two organiza tions Mr. Hoekersmith is a member, attended the funeral in a body.
