At the Commercial association rooms a meeting of the experiment station committee was held last eve ning and during the same Congress man W. R. Ellis declared his belief that the federal government can be Induced to provide funds for main taining the station. According to the statement made to the committee by Judge Ellis he con ferred with Secretary Wilson of the department of agriculture upon this subject last winter and he says that the secretary virtually promised to eupply funds for equipping the sta tion and maintaining It. Immediately upon his return to Washington Judge Ellis will take the subject up again and he has strong hopes of succeeding In having the de partment of agriculture handle the matter direct. Until last night It was the Inten tion to raise the money for equipping the iftation through popular subscrip tion and to ask the legislature to ap propriate money for the maintenance of the station. Hut it was the concensus of opin ion that Congressman Ellis' plan Is better If the governmental support can be secured. The committee that has the experi ment station movement in hand is composed of Dr. W. O. Cole, D. C. Rrowncll, Addison Bennett, H. G. Newport and Dr. II. W. Coe.

Prince Balatoff, a second cousin of Czar Nicholas, who has devoted his life to the study of aeronautics has been so fired by tne success of Wilbur and Orvllle Wright that he today announced his Inten tion of flying across the English chan nel. Prince Bolatoff has ordered an aeroplane modeled upon his own de sign, and will make the attempt as soon as It Is completed. By giving two prizes when he had only agreed to give one, J. J. Ham ley, the popular harness man, has ncnln demonstrated that everything held In connection with his store must be strictly square and absolutely fair to all concerned. All during fair week there has been a reelster kept at the Hamley booth In the pavilion and every visitor to the fair has been Invited to register and make a guess as to the numher of stitches that would be taken by the famous Campbell stitching machine during the five days, from Monday morning to Friday evening. Tne guesses ranged from a few thousand to more than a million. The reward for the one guessing teh closest was to be given a lady'e riding saddle, a set of harness or a pair of chaps. Long before 10 o'clock this morn ing, the hour appointed for the an nouncement of the lucky number, the the store was Jammed and the crowd extended across the sidewalk and but Into the street. Every stitch taken by the machine Is registered and by reading the at tached meter Monday morning and again Friday evening, the number of stitches taken was ascertained. When the envelope was opened it was declnredonly 2319 stitches hat hoon taken. As this number of stitches Is frequently taken by the ma chine In one hour It was seen that a mistake had been made In reading the meter. With his usual spirit of fairness Mr. w.imlev nuleklv settled the problem which had arisen by declaring that the man having the numher nearest should be awarded the prize and also that the men holding the number nearest the flirure which should he found by examination to be correct, should be given one. An i anilnatlon of the meter on the machine soon disclosed the fact that a mistake of 100,000 stitches had been made and that the correct number was 102,319. The man having the number near est the first one read was W. M. Smiley, while the one holding the numher nearest the right one was F. F. Fletcher of Nye. Little Wheat Sold. Though many farmers have ex pected to dispose of their wheat this week, having taken advantage of the district fair to come to town, it is be lieved that very litlte has been sold. After going up to 78 cents the price almost Immediately dropped down again and Is now only a little better than 76. While this Is generally con sidered a pretty good price, most of the farmers are loath to let go at that figure. For Sale.
