VOLUME 7 MERIDIAN, ADA COUNTY, IDAHO, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1915. NUMBER 22 IT 18 A GREAT FAIR. Speaking of Tuesday, the first day of the Gem State Pair at Boise, the - Capital News says. & "This is Barbecue day at the Gem State Pair which was opened tp the j,public this morning. Without doubt the greatest crowd that ever attend ■. ed a fair in Boise on the opening day is at the fair to-day. The exhibits not only very extensive but they are displayed most attractively.lt is no exaggeration to state that the Gem State fair is the largest and best ever held in the state of Idaho. to in are An abun . .dance of good amusements has been provided for each day of the fair, al so music of a high class of excellence. There are two big exhibit halls and both are filled with the finest dis plays of fruits, vegetables and farm products ever seen in the state. The live stock is great. It ranks with such shows as those held at Spo V kane, Seattle, Portland and Salem. The poultry show is a very fine one. A large tent has been urovided for the automobile show in which the various auto dealers arc participat ing. The big barbecue was the contribu tion of the Boise Commercial club to the Gem State fair,and it was a great success.Thousands of people were fed and every one pronounced it the fin eat barbecue meat he or she had eat en anywhere. Chief credit for this is duo to W.E.Snodgrass of Boise who is recognized as the champion meat I roaster in the northwest.>V. E. Pierce with 35 aide assistants served .he great crowd at the fair grounds, be ginning promptly at 12 o'clock noon, and continuing until every one on tlie grounds was served. Each one was given a paper napkin,a paper plate on which was placed a large sandwich and a pickle and a tin cup of coffee. -, The bread was of the very best, the meat was thoroughly roasted and well ' seasoned, the pickle was fine and the coffee was excellent. 2 - Four big fine beeves containing 3200 pounds of boned meat were roasted from 11 a. m. yesterday to 11 a.m. today. It took fo pounds of pepper and 100 pounds of salt to season it. v Other items of the barbecue sufficient to feed 10,000 people were:One thou Band loaves of bread, each 18 inches long: 300 pounds of coffee,30 gallons of cream: 100 pounds of sugar and f : three barrels of pickles, each barrel containing 50 gallons. The two large exposition halls at the fair are completely filled with beautiful exhibits. The first hall is devoted to horticulture! products, 1 * V women's departments,school exhibits, which show the state boys' and girls' club work and the apiary display.All of these departments are represented : with exhibits that are most attractive and beautiful. ! The second of the large exposition halls is divided into two general sec tions. In one of them is found the great display of farm and garden pro ducts grown by irrigation and by the dry land method. The other section of this hall is devoted to the manu $tf; facturer's division. Here are to he ; seen the attractive booths of the mer chants and manufacturers who are t making displays, of typewriters,office fixtures, glass, seeds, butter, cheese, electrical goods, motorcycles, canned goods, sewing machines, etc. f An interesting feature in the exhibit of the Boise Cooperative Creamery company is the beautiful display of 91 roses all made of blitter, by Mrs. Hilda Shellenberger.These roses look just like the real roses of nature,Mrs. flhellenherger learned to make roses "of butter in Detroit,and she has won the prizes in this work fit the big fairs in Michigan. An interesting feature in the farm display is the corn exhibit made by jÆ.Dewev.of Emmett. It is Imperial Yellow Dent corn grown at Emmett. Mr. Dewey has the distinction of re ceiving the bronze medal at tl.e Pan ama-Pacific exposition at San Fran r cisco for the excellence of the q iality of corn exhibited at the big fair. In MUhe exhibit at the Gera State Fair Mr. Dewey has 10 stalks of corn, each stalk being 16 feet long. Eech stalk has a large ear of corn. Mr.Dewey has four acres of corn that yielded 90 bushels per acre. J.J.Jones of Meridian has Minne sota 13 corn at the fair that yielded 108.2 bushels per acre from a meas ured field. Mr .and Mrs. T. A. Allen of Merid ian, have a wonderful individual dis play of farm,garden and orchard pro ducts In the big hall. This is doubt- j less the greatest individual exhibit ( grown on one farm ever shown in the j northwest. ^ The dry farm exhibit is easily the 1 , finest ever shown at any Idaho fair. Most of the products shown were grown on Black creek and Dry creek, both in Ada county. There are also three exhibits from the Pearl district. Frank Marcellus has in this exhibit Forty Fold wheat grown on dry land that made 45 bushels per acre. Other wheat is show n that made from 40 bushels tier acre. The livestock show at the Gem State fair is not only the largest but it is the liest in quality ever seen at any previous fair held in Boise. This is true as to the horse show,cattle show and the swine show. The sheep show' alone is not up to the standard. The sheep men are too busy making big money this year to fit their sheep for the fairs. The horse show is said to be equal to those held this year in Spokane and Salem,as si the show in the beef cattle class. The Jersey show is the largest one ever seen at a fair in Boise. The Holstein show is specially noteworthy and is larger than those shown at any of the northwest fairs this year. The draft horse, beef cattle and swine shows are splendidly arranged in the extreme lower end of the fair grounds. The University of Idaho stock exhibit is here for exhibition but not to compete wth other live stock.lt is arranged to make an ed ucational display representing 11 dif ferent pure breeds and two crosses. to GEM FAIR NOTES.
