Of this large amount $17,500 comes from appropria tions by the legislature. The remain ler comes from gate re ceipts and from the concession. The total premium for the county a >ricultural exhibits was fixed at $8,000 which is an in- cfea ed of about $2,000. The incre ise goes for larger pre miums on sheep swine and dairy catt’e. On account o f difficulty last year in the goat section, no premium will be given them 1 this year. On account o f their b* ng lL f lo . competition on Dor set sheep and Essick swine, the premiums on those breeas were eliminated.
