Other Side of Female En deavor Reflected in Splen did Art Displays—Exhib its by Boise High School Students. With the sun shining: warmly over the freshly watered earth and the air ns sweet as a new blown rose, the fair is like a May day festival. There has been a pleasant bqstle of gathering crowds and the few preparations that had been delayed by the rain (however welcome it was) wont into place as if by magic and before one could realize it the big state fair was in full swing inside as well as out. Inside where the woman's department, the university extension work, and the art gallery form a group, the interest seems to gather momentum bach hour. The awards • have nearly all been made in the woman's department and the art gallery and the blue and red ribbons are seen everywhere. WOMEN POULTRY RAISERS. Women have many actis ities at the state fair. In the poultry department women were showing very conclusive ly how to solve the problem of high priced meats by meeting the demand with nutritious and palatable meats of more modest price. Mrs. H. W. Barber of Rose station, exhibits 25 rabbits from her well known farm. Flemish (liants and New Zealand Reds. These at six or seven weeks weight about four pounds and sell for 50 to 60 cents. The meat is delicious and can be cooked in several ways. A diet of rolled barley and al falfa hay is fed to thorn and the war rens are kept scrupulously clean. The lemand for rabbits is greater than the breeders can supply. Mrs. Belle Silversmith has her fine birds on display as usual and she is always sure of a prize for her chickens are very tine. Miss Georgia Baxter is another wo man who is raising rabbits. Her New Zealand Reds proving as profitable In proportion as the large orchard and berry gardens operated by her mother *nd herself. Mrs. Baker is one of the poultry raisers and her partridge cochins are very fine. Mrs. George Hand is exhibiting rab bits also, the Rufus Reds and New Zealand Reds. Mrs. T. A. Allen of Meridian has an exhibit in the agricultural department which shows what a woman may ac- ' complish in gardening. Bearing the : burden with her husband. Mrs. Allen: has many varieties of vegetables, melons, fruits, grains, etc. The good health a woman finds in gardening is a most valuable reward for her work thinks Mrs. Allen who has been busy day and night arranging her exhibit in the agricultural department. RED CROSS BOOTH. The Red Cross workers have estab lished a booth under the grand stand where Miss Anna Daly is demonstrat ing first aid. One of the conveniences of the fair grounds is an information bureau in charge of Mrs. Ihrig and Mrs. F. A. Tolman. which is also a free check ! room for wraps, coats, packages, etc. : Babies, if good natured, are welcome, also. The Y. W. C. A. has established a rest room in a large tent which is com. fortably furnished with scats, writing tables ,a dressing room with comfort able lounges and toilet accessories. There arc also magazines and papers j and other conveniences. During the day many come in. tired mothers with j little children to whom the restful couches and comfortable seats were welcome. Mothers whose sons Imd just gone 1 ».» the war exchanged comfort and con dolence with women whose sons had gone long before. Mrs. R. L. Xourse, president, of the V*. W. A., and Mrs. Edwin Herrington, one of the members of the board, welcomed people cordially und while chatting together or with visitors, knitted for the Red Cross. The husbands and fathers came also making pleasant family groups. Miss Marie Nelson and Miss Florence Wat son, Y. W. O. A. members, were the hostesses for the evening, and Mrs., N ourse decided later to remain also. Fifteen of the y. W. C. A. girls who have taken first aid took part in the first aid at the Rattle of Verdun lout evening and 15 others will Thursday evening: Since the conservation of our youth has at last begun to assume the im portance in the calculations of the world that, it deserves, there can scarcely be said too much about their achievements. For they are to become the men and women on whom the; world will depend in the future- "after the. war," perhaps, if sadly, the war is prolonged to any great extent. The war garden idea lias taken hold of the hearts of the. boys and girls, and the highest good will come of it. HIGH SCHOOL EXHIBIT.
