A team of oxen is bringing .n a. loaded wagon, lad by the driver with his goad, and on top, occupying a comfortable seat, is the figure of a woman, with costume o£ 100 years ago. Tho "snake and rider" fence is pro- rtuci'd in a miniature and with an eye to proportion that makes the entire exhibit wonderful from aa arUst.c point of view. There are flocks o. chickens and practically every variety of humanity, domestic animals and poultry, common to a farm. There is also in miniature a small building. .which, with - i v i ..surroundings, exactly reproduces the work of curing the ·talks of flax, preps-rlns It for spinning and other operations that later on. the rood women of the pioneer days made irtn shirts and trousers for the men, and from 5 which they furnished most of their own ·wearine apparel from th It Sl se I ems 'almost Imposslblo that, without training or modern-day tools, that such work of art coulu be produced-- "but seeing is believing" and the knifework masterplecs -will be en exhibition today.

The original planks from which these were carved -were approximately three Inches thic*. Th-e statement that these are veritable queer- works in. art in wood carving Is not th« least exaggerated. Absolutely true, in proportion to carving ana coloring, are reproduced mankind, children, castles, stream-scenes, farm life and horns scenes that are eo artlsticajly executed that it would ba a shame and distinct loss to allow these w ° r , k . s to be withdrawn from public exhibition, and the most celebrated of these centers of exhibition would be proud to five them place of honor.
