Besides the fuller  exhibits of prize winning horses, cattle,  swine and other livestock of Idaho, Oregon and Washington, the Inland Empire  ss at last to sss the prize winners from  the Eastern State Fairs.  The East has already sent some live  stock to the Northwest, but on. that  occasion, the Portland Fair, it was im-  sossifcls to arrss*?c- for ths entire sshibis  forxhisfcountry, as the Interstate Fair  date followed the Portland Fair.  In September, however, the stockmen  of the Inland Empire and all who attend  the Spokane Interstate Fair will see the  livo'stocls that won premiums at the  Minnesota State Fair, the greatest fair  for stockmen, farmers or producers that  is held in the United States; just as the  Spokane Interstate is the greatest Fair  that is held west of the Missouri river.  Stockmen have long been convinced of  the incalculable benefit to the proper  breeding of stock that lies in comparisons between the finest of one section  with the finest of another, and it is 110  exaggeration to say that this year will  present to the Btockmen of the Inland  Empire the best opportunity for such  comparisons yet afforded in the Northwest.   .-���������,.',.'.,  JohnL. Smith, of Spokane, is to be  superintendent of live stook exhibits and  Prof. W. T. McDonald, of Pullman, as  Bifltant superintendent. For all classes  of live stock there will be extraordinary  liberal premiums offered this year, full  particulars of which may bo obtained by  writing to Robt. H.

What's "Ihe Move ?  Rumors are current to the effect that  the Great Northern may overhaul the  Kootenay Valley line from Kuskanook  to Bonner's Ferry and put it in ehapo  for traffic to haul the expected zinc tonnage from this csmp that way.

Uncle Sam is concerned about the "wilful waste of wood which seems predestined to create woful want. Million*! of  cords of wood is wasted every year in  the forest and on the farm because this  wood ia not suitable for the various mechanical uses for which wood is employ-'  ed. TheTC are, however, numerous means  of disposing of this waste. Aside from  tanning and paper making, which are  chemical industries that have been established for hundreds oi years, there  are other industrial uses of moro recent  origin which are of agricultural importance. ''3. ,        ';.      '  Important among these are destructive.,  distillation, recovery of turpentine,  resin, paper pulp, preparation of alcohols  and manufacture of acids. These aro  growing industries beeniwe of a steadily  increasing demand for wood alcohol, acetates, acetone, turpentine, charcoal, etc.,  which are utilized in other industries.  The crude products from distillation  ore chieflv four: Gases, tar rfnd oils,  charooal and neids. Methyl alcohol, ace.  tatea, acetone, charcoal, tiirpentnne,  wood, oil and oxalic acid are directly or  indirectly obtained on, u. commercial  ncalo from woods, nnd the yield is governed largely by specific gravity, weight  and kind 'ot wood as well ns by the way  in which the manufacturing process is  carried on.���������From the Chlengo' Tribune.  ���������WKLL n.-HO FRET I>KF>.

Goodness  knows whnt his difficulties could have  been!
