The Douglas County Kair for 1913
has passed Into history, and it may
not bo amiss to make some careful
observations, draw como compart
Konu. give credit where due. and criti
cize freely where criticism Is thought
1o bo necessary or will be of future
benefit. That there Is foundation
both In material and production, to
make In time a fair In this county
of which any community can be
lirotiil. and at which every person can
find his entertainment and amuse-
inont, his pleasure und education, and
where he can have his esthetic, or his
sportive tastes gratified, will not be
doubted by any one who has attended
this fair, once or every day this
week. That there was a paucity of
exhibits of some things thut this
eounty is certainly strong In, wad
very evident to any one who gave the
subject any attention or scrutiny,
and It should be the aim of those
who will succeed In the manage
ment, or huvo it in charge In the coin
ing years, to fortify these weak
places by special effort and by turner
and more Humorous premiums. Tak
ing up the departments separately,
and noting more particularly thotie
that would seem to need the greater
nurturing, tho almost total luck of
live slock, such as dairy cows, cattle,
hogs and sheep were most tn evi
dence. In fact, wo did not overlook
any, there wero but two milch cows
shown and but three pens of swine
aa also, out aide of mohair breeds,
only two liens of sheep. Now In a
great grazing and dairy land like that
of Douglas county exhibits of this
Kind should bo prominent and the
undoubtedly grow to the proportion
or such a necessity. Kcr a county
