judging contest by students and breed
ers and the announcement of the win
ners will be made today.
Electrical Display Educational
The electrical department Is a new
feature of the fair and will prove one
of the main attractions because of Its
novelty. The display is housed in a
tent directly east of the Woman's
building. Electric lighting, heating,
cooking and every device of use in the
household will be demonstrated by
experts in connection with this depart
ment. It has proved one of the most
attractive exhibits at the fairs on the
circuit this year and the full show
will be displayed in the tent this week.

trial exhibit and the available space is
given over to North Yakima firms
that have fitted up booths for show
ing their wares. The machinery used

The bee and honey exhibit is in the
hall with the dairy products show.
Superintendent C. A. Beardsley has

son, of Oregon Agricultural College,
says is the the best exhibit he has seen
and he comes here direct from the
Oregon State Fair where he was judge
in this department. The Washington
Honey Producers association has oc
operated to make the display and the
result speaks for the value of co
operation. Prof. Wilson will begin to
Judge the display this morning.
Crawford's North Yakima band is

ANTIQUE ART TREASURE
Experts Agree Upon Its Origin But
Unable to Give Probable Ago
Among the exhibits attracting
much attention in the woman's build
ing at the State fair this year Is an
ancient catafalque or funeral canopy,
the property of J. A. Moore, of Se
This beautiful specimen of ancient
art has been handed down from
mother to daughter In Mrs. Moore's
family for many generations, and is
said to have been a wedding present
to her great great grandmother, its
history being tradition.
Curators of the Boston museum of
fine arts and the Metropolitan Mu
seum of New York, to wnom it has
been submitted, venture no positive
opinion as to its age, but agree that
it Is ofi either Egyptian or Persian
origin and that is of genuine mummy
silk, the coloring of which has for a
long time been a lost art.
It is about two yards square and is
believed to be the largest piece of
embioii'.ery of its kind in existence,
the only other piece known to exist
being only about a foot square. Ex
perts place the value of this ancient
treasure at from five thousand to
thirty thousand dollars.

A saber of honor brought Marshal
Ney t» dishonor snd death. Whn Na

1793, he was presented with three
sworda sf honor richly inlaid with pre
dons stones. He brought them back
to Europe, and In 1802 he gave one to
Ney and another to Murat, keeping
tbe third for himself.
Ney received his at an imperial re
ception. The sword passed from one
to another of those present, among
whom was a young subaltern of the
Auvergne regiment. When Napoleon
escaped from Elbe Ney left tbe king
and took sides with his former chief.

made preparations to get out of the

HE BORROWED MONEY.
And Yet He Hsd More Cash In Bsnk
Thsn He Could Use.
One morning last year I sat in the
office of the head of a very large busi
ness, one of the shrewdest men 1
know. His cashier came In and laid
on his desk a report of the cash in
the bank. The amount exceeded $400.
"That's a pretty big balance," said
my friend to his clerk. "It's much
more than we need In this business.
But we have borrowed no money for
several months, so I wish you would
send to each of our banka a note for
When the clerk went out I express
ed surprise at this action. For a man
to borrow $200,000 when he had more
money than he could use seemed to
me a wasteful proceeding.
"I do it," he. said "to keep my credit
alive I want the banks accustomed
to lending me money. I want them
to regard a good line of credit as a
regular thing with me. Some time 1
may need it, and when I do I want to
have it ready and waiting. An estab
lished credit is a big asset and the
only way to get and keep it is to con
stantly employ it."
I have thought of that action a good
many times since. I had always prid
ed myself on not borrowing money.
And I paid cash on the spot for every
thing that 1 bought. I looked upon
people who bought things on credit as
rather poor financiers.
But a few months ago I wanted
some money -a amall amount and for
only a month. I went to a bank
where I had kept a deposit for over
fifteen years, and they asked me to
deposit good bonds as collateral to the
full amount of the loan. My friend
could borrow by simply signing a
note. I had to give ample security.—

was one that would hardly be suspect

to fulfill toward him the function
which David fulfilled toward Saul."
On one evening Bismarck waa unusual

self at the piano. "Thank you, my
dear Kendell." said Bismarck finally;
"you have soothed me and done me so
much good. My mind is made up; we
shall declare war against Austria."

ALL AVAILABLE SPACE IS

Hop Harvest Is About Completed
and Samples Have Been Sent to
the Eastern Dealers — Some
Small Local Sales
Preparations for storing are being
made by growers in almost all the de
partments in which Yakima is par
ticularly interested. There is no mar
ket, at this time, which looks suffici
ently attractive to those who are
growers of crops to warrant them in
selling at going prices. The result Is
that many are preparing for the fu
ture so that they can hold or sell aa
they choose, but will not be forced
It is apparent at this time that
three or four thousand boxes of
apples will be placed in storage at
Yakima to be taken out later. All
the available cold storage in the es
pecially constructed plants will be
used and the cellars and ranch stor
age houses vvill be filled with boxed
fruit. Storage facilities, instead of
being adequate for caring for a
quarter or a third of the crop, are
not sufficient for handling an eighth,
it Is said, so that there will be as big
a lot to dispose of thie fall as ever
before and consequently, it is urgej,
much more will be held.
Potatoes and May
Potato growers are preparing to
pit and the hay men are looking for
some method of disposing of their
crop that will bo better than selling
it at the market quotations. Pres
ent indications arc that a great many
head of stock will be fed in this val
ley this fall. If hay prices are low in
Oregon and Idaho as in other seasons
some animals which it is planned to
bring into this valley will be left
where they are or near'to shipping
points in other sections. Prospects,
however, are that feeding will lie
very general in Yakima.
Hops Under Cover
Yakima hops are practically all un
der cover. Picking operations are
going forward in some of the yards
but the bulk of the crop has been
harvested and housed, samples have]
been taken and sunt east and in sonic'
instances returns have been heard
from them. The fYakima crop thlsl

Taking advantage of the good
w ather .and the character of tli-i i

North Yakima. It is reported that
McNeff Brothers and Guy Grafton
have each purchased small quantities
of hops here, but no price has been
announced and it is the statement of
growers that no price has been lixed
for Yakima as yet.
Of the Oregon crop, a report from
that state, which says that with the
exception of small lots here and there
the crop has been harvested and
housed also saya:
'•The size of the Oregon crop is
yet to be accurately determined, but
the chances are that it will run little
above or below the present general
estimate—lls,ooo bales. In quality
the 1912 output compares fairly well
with those of recent years, according
to the samples of the new crop thus
far received by local dealers. A por
tion of the crop of course is moldy
and otherwise inferior, but it is be
lieved that close to 80,000 bales of
this year's growth will grade as
choice to prime. This estimate, how
ever, is subject to revision, but in any
event the portion of this year's crop
that will pass muster as good to
choice vvill probably equal the total
output of last season."
Strawberries and quinces are the
latest Yakima crop to put in an ap
pearance on the local market. John
Johnson, a rancher of the Selah, has
brought to the city within the past
few days a number of crates of fine
berries and others have come from
other sources. These berries are
selling at fifteen cents a box. The
quinces, which are a fine crop this
season and which are selling locally
are bringing the growers about two
cents a pound.
