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.
