the same time to realize that they
need not expect as good a price as

There was but a mere handful of
business men present at the meeting;
last night in the Commercial club par
lors to .'decide ' whether or not the
business Interests desired to anaunJa
the necessary responsibility . of con
ducting a county fair in the city.
Those who were present soon be

of . the Fair Store. Charles Clementa,
of the People's Store, and Ed Selder,
will visit a number of the busl-r
nesa men today and see if mors inter

If jiie city takeB a hold of this mat
ter with enthusiasm, we can .make ti
one of the most successful falrs held
for years, but If we do not go in to
win we had better let It alone.
' With the $1000 donated by the state
what the business men would sub
scribe, and the gate receipts, we would
have finances sufficient to give tha
people something worth their while.
Of cours. the details would all
have to be "carefully worked out by
the executive committee. It has been
suggested that one day be devoted to
Aster day, under the auspices of tha
Ladles' Neighborhood club. Poultry
day and Baby day might occupy at
tention on other days." A stock shovr
and something of Interest all of ther
tlme would make a good program,
Pnzes of Buch a nature that would
permit care and pains and expense on
the part of exhibitors should be given.
The faet are, It has been so long '
since farmer friends , really took
enough Interest In the fair to siioW
what they could do, that under proper
management and, co-operation ' they
would elmply surprise themselves.
Thlt fair proposition Is capable of
being worked to a great success, but
uuli'Ns It Is gone into with the proper
spirit, let us p.i's it by. It is our
move. ' Come out tonight, Mr. fiusl
nens Man, and talk It over.
