of the United states.
The Liberty Loan is a demonstration on
the pari of the people of their faith In the
United States Government. It is a demon

our armies are fighting. It is a pledge of

It mean lack of faith in the government,

QUANTITY AS WELL AS QUALITY.
There is good reason for the directors
of tin Malheur County Pair In seeking to
have quantity exhibits as well a. high quel
The reason is this: It demonstrates
that the public as a whole is ini I in
the country and anxious to show its ability
t nroduee final in uuantin in the North ,
The more the Pair is encouraged fcli
greater Will be the results attained b tie
exhibitors. As the Pair becomes stronger
it rail offer more substantial awards. The
more men who exhibit and who eolne to e
change views on conditions in this section
with their neighbors, the better equipped
Will the all beei me.
Let iis han quantity exhibits. K

it compares with that possessed by other
men, let bia showing be exhibited so he can
determine its relative worth. Such efforts
will make the Pair what it is intended to be.
an educational institution, combined with
sufficient entertainment features to make
the atai of Pair visitors in Ontario both
pleasing and profrtagle.
