Perhaps the most urgent thing be-
fore the merchants who are going
to have booths In the fair building, as
the fair dates approach,' is to make
arrangemciiitt' or the completion of
each of the several booths before it
is too late to avoid confusion. Lum
ber should be hauled to the grounds
early, advises Manager - Church, and
there will be plenty of workmen on
hand to do the necessary labor. Of
course it is not necessary that the
decorations be put on now, but every
thing should be in readiness for the
finishing touches so that the fair will
not be marred by uncompleted booths
The Warren Construction company
roller will be . run ' along' all the
streets and the streets -will be rolled
and sprinkled daily to prevent dust
The undesirable dust occasioned by
the presence of. sawdust last year
will be avoided at this time. V' 7,
Grange day has been set for Mon
day, the day before the fair closes
and the details of their program will
be announced later.
