TO REMEMBER NEXT TIME
Now that the fair is over it may be
well to consider how the same might
have been somewhat improved on in
some particulars, thereby making it
even more interesting than it was.
One of the bad features of all our
fairs is the unpreparedness of the ex exhibits
hibits exhibits on the opening day, a very large
percentage of them arriving after the
fair was opened to visitors. A case iu
point was the complaint of an exhibit exhibitor
or exhibitor who felt so much chragrined at the
treatment he received that he wrote
to the Star about .it signing himself
Farmer, and saying some very unkina
things about the fair managers and
their way of doing business, when the
fact is he had no one to blame but
himself. He said that he arrived with
his exhibit early on Tuesday, the first
day of the fair. That he found men
at the gate allowing none to' enter
without a ticket and that he had to
wait two hours for the ticket office
to open, then he seems to have met
with many tribulations in his quest
for the secretary, or as he put it the
clerk. Now if he had taken his en entry
try entry there on Monday, as he should
have done, he would have saved him himself
self himself all the vexations of which he
complains, for there were no gate
keepers or tickets needed that day
and he would have found the entry
clerk ready and willing to wait on
him at a moment's notice.
Another thing that works against
the success of a fair is the over
promptness on the part of some of
the exhibitors in removing their en entries
tries entries before the fair closes. Many of
this class gather up or drive out
their entries as soon as the judges
have passed on them and long before
the time set for closing the fair, thus
causing great confusion and disap disappointing
pointing disappointing many visitors who could only
go on the last day and consequently
did not see the full line of exhibits.
This all works against the interest
of the fair and the hard working
managers are blamed for the fair
being complete for two days only in instead
stead instead of four. Another year have all
! exhibits in place the day before the
opening and let them stay there till
the closing hour on the last day.
Then visitors who can only be pres present
ent present on the first or last day will see the
whole show. H. C. Packham.

Lieut. Campbell is a most conscien

the Star knows in particular the men
of A company have the greatest con
fidence in him. We don't believe he
would knowingly misrepresent any
thing, but as we have said before, it
is not much use, in the face or the
death list and the surgeon general's
report, to defend the Camp Wheeler
hospital. We believe the most of the
evils it was subject to have been cor-1
rected, and that in future our soldiers
who are sent to it will have good
treatment, but we also believe the air
ing it has received in the press has
caused the war department to act at
least a little quicker than it would
have had matters been kept smother

surance that evils, whether fancied
or real, are being remedied, has great greatly

Housewives Now More
Than Ever Before Realize
the Importance of Purity
in Food Products
While on my lecture tours, meeting
housewives in all sections of the country I have
observed that women are now wide awake to the vital neces necessity
sity necessity of utmost purity in articles of food.
It used to be that 'unscrupulous
manufacturers were at liberty to foist rankly
adulterated food stuffs on the unsuspecting housewife. This
production of low grade, frequently worthless and often injuri
ous merchandise gained such strides that the government
stepped in writh Pure Food legislation and checked it. This
measure of protection aroused housewives to the situation and
the importance of purity in articles of table use. And as a
result of this awakening wise housewives have set a higher
standard of purity than the Food Laws demand. The federal
and state authorities have cut off to a great extent the manu manufacturer
facturer manufacturer of products of an injurious nature. The great
majority of housewives have gone even farther and insist
on absolute purity.
Take Baking Powder for example. ThereJ
are many different brands of baking powders on the market.'
All that are on the market are made within the limits of the law are
as pure as the law demands.
But there are other things to be taken into
consideration will they give the best results are they
economical in use?
The housewife now insists that baking
powder be as pure as it can be made. That it possess no
impurities no adulterants no useless fillers no injurious properties
of any sort They want and are entitled to a baking powder so
proportioned and blended it remains pure in the baking.
After testing many different brands of
baking powders, I am thoroughly convinced that Calumet
Baking Powder extends far beyond the standards of purity demanded
by the food laws. t
Critical experiments establish the fact that
Calumet leaves no harmful residue, as do many powders
that comply with pure food requirements. The bakings it produces
are not only light, fluffy and tasty "-but wholesome and healthful
which really is the final test of a baking powder's purity.
The housewife of today wants something
better than "just as good." She wants the best, and in my
i articles on Baking Powder I have no hesitancy in recommending

KEEP BEAUTY OF ROADSIDE
Some Towns Appreciate the Value of
Permitting Flowers and Shrub Shrubbery
bery Shrubbery to Grow on Highways.
In many a charming countryside the
town road-destroyer with his bush-
scythe garners the beauty and leaves
bleakness, a singularly unkempt re result
sult result of an attempt to clean up.
Sometimes it is the village Improve Improvement
ment Improvement society itself, meaning -well, that
sends him forth, says the Boston
Transcript. More often it is his indi individual
vidual individual sense of responsibility to the
office whose salary he is expected to
earn. He, too, means well, and would
be greatly indignant If told that his
labors tended to drive prosperity away
from his district. Yet such is without
doubt the fact. The summer visitor
loves the country for its wild tangle,
Its untrammeled growth, Its bosky
dells and its friendly shrubbery which
crowds into the road Itself, flaunting
dewy fragrance in his face as he
walks. When the day comes that he
returns and finds in place of these
along his accustomed walks dry brush,
bare stubble and clumsily unkempt
cleanliness, his soul revolts and on
the morrow he seeks fresh woods and
pastures new. Some country towns
seem to have a realizing sense of this
purely Utilitarian side of the value of
roadside beauty. They build good
roads, but they take care to leave the
roadside growth untrammeled that
those who pass may enjoy it. It is a
There Is more to it, too, than the
fact that sentimentalists and nature
lovers come to worship this beauty.
The school children of such a town
go to school along roads lined with ob object
ject object lessons not only in beauty but in
natural science, lessons which they
learn without knowing it and which re remain
main remain with them all their lives.
Every owner of a bit of soil should
make a limited study of the art of land landscaping
scaping landscaping so that fundamental mistakes
are not made. First, do not plant your
space all over, as though it were an
orchard. Leave mm. open center for
lawn or even a bare gpn and plant
only about the borders cad in varying
widths. Never cumber the center with
trees or shrubs. Mass the planting by
placing many of a kind together ; do
not space regularly so each will appear
lonely or have an orchard effect. It
matters little if they grow together in
a mass nature so disposes them. This
effect is more necessary in shrubs than
trees but even trees should Interlace.
In a small garden some or even all of
formality must be had but In a place
of size we need little or none. In the
large places we should avoid straight
lines. If one will follow these few sim simple
ple simple rules he cannot go far astray in
planning his own garden.
Never Too Many Parks.
Some things are never enjoyed In
excess. They never breed regrets, says
an exchange. Who ever heard of a
city that learned, as it grew from
youth to maturity, that it had too
many parks? Where is the munici municipality
pality municipality that is sorry it has so many
pleasure grounds for the use of its
citizens? Was there ever a town which
felt that Its children enjoyed too much
room for their play, its invalids too i
"many quiet nooks for rest and recuper recuperation,
