The band led a procession which marched down River side avenue amid the cheers of the poo- j ^ pie. Next to the band came the God-; dess of Plenty, Miss Lula Kirby, the choice of Nex Perce county, Idaho, V ' which last year won the first prize for the best exhibition of fruits, grains, u grass seed, roots and vegetables. She rode in the same carriage which was I 1 rose tiled to Abraham Lincoln by the ^ husinews men of New York city after his second election. Her costume and ,h »t of her attendants was of the co-| ,U lonlal style. Ou reaching the grounds the Goddess ■ 111 of Plenty and her retinue halted at the *' pavllllon and tho band proceeded the,*''' Goddess and her atendunts, then enter ! «d the pavilllou, and as she ascended i ; the p'at form a chorus made up of liluu children, selected from the best voice« i in the public schools above the fourth : h « r wlth ^ opening i bars 0 f t j, e grand chorus. This cuorus wa3 under ttle direction of Dr R A ! Heritage. Following the rendition of the open opening ode. which formally opened chorus the Goddess announced o m 1 the opening code, which formally opened Spokane's Industrial Exposition. This ode was composed by Miss Pauline Dunstan, the Spokane elocutionist, and is as follows: ''Loyal subjects, one and all, Gathered at my mandate's call. Greeting here your Goddess brings, While the joyous welcome rings. For your pleasures you will And. Treasures rare in form and hind. Golden grains and fruits so fair. Ores from old earth's hidden lair, Dances tripped by dainty feet, Music grand and songs most sweet. These your Goddess gives to thee. For your pleasures, full and free. Take them, use them for your cheer, Emblems of a bounteous year. Thus let gladness have full sway And begin our festal day. Tlie ode was followed by the opening i address by Dr. E. D. Olmsted, president of the Exposition and by Mayor J. M. Comstock. • from Nez Perce The Exposition this year as far as the exhibits are concerned is fully up to j those of former years anu in some re spects is better. In the agricultural l and fruit departments the exhibit county, under the charge of the Hon. Thomas C. Kirby, is very large and contains about every thing which ran be raised In the North ! temperate zone. But a striking - change In the agricultural department Is the large number of exhibitors who are competing for the different prizes offered for the beet individual exhibits many more of these than ever before of farm and fruit exhibits. There are and they are muqh better. This is one j of the striking features of the agricul tural departments, I The mineral departments Is all that wa * la *t year with many new camps 1 represented. This Is one of the best and moot, important parts of the big show. A poultry department and ma 'hluery department are interesting Motion*. I But «f ractions at the Exposition w t 1 ' cl> brings more people and which holds them there longer and causes more admiration than anything else and everything else is the band. Such i a musical organization never came west. before It is a wonderland; Is equally admired by the best musicians and by those who do not pretend to be musicians or judge« of music. There are f or ty members of this band and in eluded in that number are a dozen so lolsts which makes a very alt rar five part of ths program.

Taking the 11 articles quot ed in our price tables it will be M«n that after an advance of over 100 per cent in 1899 the prices have declined only about 35 per cent this year, and there is already a tendency toward a higher level.
