' After 15 davs of ocean travel from
Caracas, remaokable for wonderfully
fine weather we reached Bio de Janer-
to, a city of beauty for It gardens and
wonderful bay and feared in the past
for its susceptibilities to epidemic
disease, but now more beautiful and
.freat for its wonderful streets, drives,
great homes and excelling all other
cities in its cleanliness.
Capital of Great Repabllc.
"Rio tfe Janeiro is the capital of
the greatest republic in geographical
extent in the American hemisphere-

there chanced to be in the bay cruisers
from Argentina, Portugual, Germany,
Italy, Uruguav and a Brazilian dread

Minister Serves Coffee.
"Lauro Muller, minister of foreign
relations, received us very cordially,
indeed. After the usual exchange of
formalities the minister offered the
commission a cup of delicious coffee
brewed by Salvador, a national expert
in the preparation of the beverage.
This has made us understand that
coffee is the national drink in Brazil.
After being presented to the min
isters of marine and agriculture vie
were introduced to the present r
Brazil. Hermes de Fonseca, who in re
plying to the chairman's speech be
came eloquent and revealed consider
able emotion. He dwelt on the appre
ciation of the Brazilians of the friend
ship of the people of the United States
and said that nothing would be left
undone to bear out the- dignity ol
Brasil in its exhibit at the San Fran
'It may be Interesting to know that
the president and most of his cabinet
do not speak or understand English.
The chairman spoke in Spanish and
those addressed replied In Portuguese.
..... Tour lm Strenuous.
'This tour of the southern countries
is pretty strenuous proposition and
when we again boarded ship I was
mighty glad to draw a breath of rest
"Uruguay, unlike the other republics
who have been in doubt as to whether
or not they would accept has posi

great consumers of pork, raise few hogs.
They spend millions of dollars annually for

the south more cheaply than in any other
part of the United States.

The pig agent in each state will be a
specialist in swine husbandry Cooperating
with the state authorities, he will direct
the pig club work. He will teach the boys

Investment demanded of any Nboy at the

classification: L Large brown. 2. Large

Simple, Is it not? But it is Just these lit

The people ef Beaton have a strong pre

Sve attention to such local fancies, the

The girls and young women ef the poul
try clubs are taught that it pays to keep
well bred chickens, rather than ordinary
barnyard stock. Onoe a year each club
holds an exhibition, at the county fair o
elsewhere, at which each member shows a
pair of her best chickens and a dosen ot
her best eggs. Prizes are awarded. No
person Is eligible to membership in a club
until she has hatched at least one sitting
