And why not the exhibit made is a marked success in every de partment. r The horticultural hall first catches the crowd and the riyal exhibits of Nqp Perce and Asotin counties are indeed a wonder. Nez Perce easily excells Asotin county in its display of grains and grasses but in fruits and vegetables it will puzzle the judges to pick out the winner. Both exhibitions have some special features. Nez Perce has a sunrise display of grains and grasses. Asotin has a great horn of plenty, a mammouth cornucopia that reaches well toward the roof of the hall and pours its garnered harvest upon a great table below. The ladies department with its dis play of household decorative art is a feature that is always crowded with visitors. This year the attraction has some special exhibits of fine table linens brought from abroad by Mrs. W. F. Kettenbach and Miss Ruth Grostein. The Indian display in the north wing is a new and novel attraction. No finer display of the kind has ever been made in the northwest. The Nez Perce In dians have contributed individual relics consisting of the finest bead work, on moccasins, gloves, pouches together with bags saddles, whips ornamented hunting shirts and weapons of early Indian ware fare. To this collection Prof. Frank Voorheis has added his collection of In dian rugs and blankets including a fine Nav.jo exhibit and Miss Ruth Grostein has added a splendid private collection some single baskets valued at S50 and $ 75 - But the big hall is full of other at tractions and the sight-seers are not over looking any of them.

The free-for-all race of Tuesday was a walk over for Ned Thorne, who in the fourth heat to lend interest to the event weut against the track record, 2:19(4 made by Sunrise last year.
