South Dakota ob taining this space through the fortunate fact, thai Massachu setts found it had undertaken too much and could spare some of its port ion. Otherwise South I (akota could not. have had all exhibit because no ü.oiiey had beeil appropriated for a South Dakota building. An exhibit of Wl entries was taken out,, but., lipon arrival if was found all the judgeing of exhibits wa completed, and so by special ar rangement McUalTree got the superior jury to hold open its session a bit longer, and the very top notch stuff sent by South Dakota was submitted to them for their judgement, elimi nating all but II entries. These heilig so superior, tliey brought a gold medal. South Dakota's gold medal will be one of those awarded to several very high class exhibits, from some of the states only, and South Dakota spent about SI00 to SI,000 of other states in getting its rep resentation at the fair. W. C. Lusk, editor of the Yankton Press and Dakotan. and lately president of the Press associa tion, is now in charge of the ex hibit since Immigration Com missioner has returned to the office at Pierre. The South Da. kota exhibit is in a booth in the east end of the Agricultural pal ace. between the doors pening into the Court, of the Universe and the Main Court of the expo sition.and right next to Sousa's band stand, so it is visited by more than the usual number of persons. .Mail can be addressed there and can be called for by South Dakotan's visiting the fail'. The chairs and tables for comfort of the visitors the booth which is large, have been shipped out from the capitol with the exhibit for use during the lair there. The ten states of the Middle West known as the grain belt— South Dakota, North Dakota, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Wis consin, Kansas, Missouri, Okla homa and Wyoming, owned four years ago 1 10,000 automobiles probably one tenth of which be longed to farmers. I the last I three years the number of auto mobiles in these states has quad rupled, and it is more than doubled in the past two years. From figures furnished by the various secretaries of state it lias been ascertained that on the tirst of this year the grain belt states owned 5.V.I,7B0 cars. The Seeding Alfulfit in the Fa!!.

I attiilmte the cause to the exclusive rains and new broken lands. The flax crops are looking good, et the later sown flax seems to be retarded on account of too much rain, yet 1 think it is going to make good. The idea of seeding winter wheat on spring breaking is new to me, yet such is the case, because all cf the winter wheat I saw on my trip, was growing on sod land, and the prospects for a large yield could not be better: on the other hand, 1 have been told that where winter wheat has been seeded on old land the crops are much better, if such is the case, it has got to go seme.
