Salem, Aug 31. (Specila). On Mon
day, September, 12, the greatest state
fair in the history of the West opens
In this city. New features, new build
ings, new landscape effects on the
grounds and a general atmosphere of
newness and bigness that will please
.Such are some of the things which
are in sight and it is a safe guess that
Salem will entertain greater crowds
than ever before in her history.
Former State Fairs of Oregon have
become famous throughout the coun
try as among the leaders of annual
state exhibitions of stock and agricul
tural products, but this .year promises
to eclipse all former successes in this
state and pass into hltory as one of
the best, if not the best, state fairs In
The endeavors of the board. of di
rectors and secretary -to embody in
the grounds everything possible lor
the edification of the stock raiser, ag
riculturist and department for the wo
men, not alone the carnival features
and horse races, are bearing fruit In
asmuch as entry lists in every de
partment are rapidly filling up and
future prospects are that the 1919
show will contain more than ever be
fore. Transportation facilities will also
be far more adequate than in previous
years, more trains are running Into
the city and a new street railway sys
tem will greatly add to the comfort of
the throngs visiting the Fair. Again,
sleeping and eating accomodations
have been greatly improved.
Dairymen and farmers will find an
added Interest at the forty-ninth an
nual state fair, which will be held in
this city September 12 to 17.

1428 ADAMS AVE. LA GRANDE, ORE.
Some of the best horses ever seen
in the west are entered for the har
ness events of the state fair and splen
did contests may be looked for. The
course has been worked down to a far
better condition than ever before and
track and Northwest records will un
doubtedly be made.
Lone Oak Track, when in condition,
is one of the fastest race courses in
the country, and It Is here tnat tne
most famous speed contests on the Pa
cific coast have taken place. It is
here that Chehalls broke the world's
pacing record for two miles on Octob
er 6, 1907, setting the mark at 4:19
1-4, and the following year a new rec
ord was made by the guldeless pacer,
of 2:04 1-4, Wei Norte. ,
The race record for Loan Oak track
is 2:05 1-4, held by the pacer Leland
Onward, 2:04 1-4. This record was
made in the Rapid Transit purse of
f 1,000 for 2:03 pacers on September
18, 1908. He' was in competition with
Mona Walkes, 2:04 1-4. The track
record for trotters is 2:10 1-4, made
by Day Break in the Lewis and Clark
$5,000 stake- on September 17, 1908.
The track record for trotters, 2:10 1-4.
held by Day Break, was equalled last
year by Lady Sirius, In the third heat
of the p:15 trot for the Farmers'
purse of $1,000. , '

and the "Lewis and Clark"-2: 12 trot.

and consolation purses. Last year
the big race was won by Lord Love-1

horses are again out for the money,
