U IOTSTT FAIR.
Tlie attendance on Thursday was
larger than on either of tlie two days
previous, but still did not come up, in
numbers, to the assemblages on former
occasions gathered there. The show
of articles in the Pavilion was in
creased somewhat, but not enough to
worry the worthy Secretary in making
the proper entries.
We might just as well say right
Iiere. that the people of Linn county,
generally, seemed to take very little
interest in the Fair, and although the
officers and Director labored faithfully
to make the Fair a success, they lacked
the support of the people, without
which no undertaking of the kind can
succeed. The general impression to
day is that Linn coujity has seen the
last of her Pairs; at least we would
advise against another attempt, until
there is a better feeling towards these
annual exhibitions in this community.
The grand attraction on tlie grounds
on Thursday was the steam fire engine
belonging to Willamette Engine Co.
Xo. 1. of Portland. A ditch had been
brought on to the grounds from the
Santiain Canal to enable the engine to
give an exhibition of her power. The
largest crowd of the week was gather
ed to witness tlie exhibition, adding to
the receipts and to tlie pleasure of
those in attendance. Willamette Xo.
1 is a beautiful engine, and the boys
know how to handle her.
The attendance on Eriday was about
the same as on Thursday. The Fair
virtually ended on Friday afternoon,
a large number of the articles on ex
hibition being withdrawn on that
We were not in attendance on Satur
day, but learn that the attendance was
not as good as on the two previous
days, there being nothing to "draw"
except the races. We append a syn

Total receipts of the Fair about $2,
SOO. We shall probably be favored

First Premium on Flour. The
Lebanon Mills' XXX flour took the
first premium at the Linn County
Fair last week. This is one of the
best mills in the State, and is fast
building up a reputation for doing
first class work. The proprietors,
Eikins Bros., have been at great ex
pense during the season in putting up
new and improved machinery, and are
determined to keep the mill up to the
highest standard in the future.
The Tules ox Fire. All over the
State the tules are on fire with enthu
siasm on the subject of the next and
lat Grand Oitt Concert ot the Public
Library of Kentucky, to come off No
vember 30. 1874. Until recently it
was thought that the excitement was
confined to the cities and towns, but
reliable accounts show th.it the rural
districts ase a much in earnest on the
subject as the cities. Indeed, the fact
is not surprising when It is known
that this is positively the last chawx
which can be given, and at this Con
cert $2,500,000 in cash will be distribu
ted to the ticket-holder in such' prizes
or gifts as $250,000. $100,000. $50,000.
$25,000, $20,000. For further infor
mation, address Gov. T. E. Bram
lette. Louisville. Ky.
Champion Chcrn. The latest in
vention for the manufacture of butter
is the Reversible Champion Churn, on
exhibition at the late County Fair. It
possesses many advantages over any
churn we have seen ; it is very simple,
easily handled, a child ot twelve years
being able to turn milk or cream into
butter in from three to fifteen minute.
Owing to its cheapness,- durability,
trie character of its work, and the gen
eral economy in its use. . we predict for
this churn a big run. Mfessrs. Grad
wohl & Lay ton own th'e latent for thi
county, and will soon commence their
manufacture. Call at GradwohFs and
Read This. All persons knowing
themselves indebted Iry note or other
wise to the late firm of Howell, Har

We also have a very fine stock of
goods to sell, which we offer very low
for cash or merchantable produce.

J owned and cultivated one of the best
little farms in the county, and until

thn home of his youth Old Virginia.
His numerous friends in Linn county
wish him a happy and pleasant journey
to. the old homestead, and that health
ami prosperity may follow him wher
ever he may cast his lot.
First Premium to the Singer.
Among the many different kinds of
sewing machines on exhibition at the
County Fair last week, the Singer
easily got away with the first premium,
as the best machine for family work,
the Howe taking the second. The

Brothers, has had an unprecedented
sale in tilts and adjoining counties, for
months past, and there seems to be
actually no limit to the demand. Cail

There is a slight hope tliat wheat
will advance in the Liverpool market
before Winter sets in. It is based on
the suposition that the surplus wheat
ot the world will fall below the amount
figured up earlier in the season, and
that grain dealears there will he com
pelled to advance their prices, thus
enabling our dealers to offer an ad
vance on present rates. The hope,
however, is very slight, and may not
pan out. Present quotations are :'
Average, per cental, 9s ll'SlOs 6d ;

The State Fair opened at Salem on
Monday with an immense throng of
visitors. The stock department, in
the line of blooded horses, never was
better larger. The Pavilion, too,
literally overflows with rich, rare and
,cotly fabrics, plants, fruits and flow
ers. The art department is also well
filled ; the poultry show is good ; in
hogs, sheep, etc., there is a good show
ing, and those in attendance have
really had a feast for the eyes. The
weather being propitious, the indica--tions
are that the State Fair for 1874,
wHI be a grand success.
The tardy action ol the Legislature
in regard to passihg a law lowering
the fee bills of county officers, is re
ceiving general comment. The State
Printer's fees, too, are exhorbitant, and
need a vigorous pruning. The conduct
of the State Prison ; the keeping of the
insane ail these are subjects of the
utmost importance, and the people are
anxiously looking to the action of
their servants at Salem with regard to
them. The ninety days has well nigh
passed, and nothing in sight yet. f
our Legislators intend to redeem their
pledges to the people, they should be
about it, and that right speedily.
We unite with tlie Oreganian in ask
ing our Legislators to do something,
toward letting Congress know the
exact position of our farmers in the
Willamette Valley, and how small an
amount would be required to make
the river navigable nearly the whole'
year round. It is a subject in which
the largest agricultural community in
the State is direotly interested. The
amount necessary, says that journal,
to open the Willamette would be saved'
to the farmers in a single year, and
the amount necessary to be expended"
afterwards to remove new obstructions
would be but the merest trifle. Let
all the tacts be set forth in detail in a
memorial to Congress ; and with this
weight of evidence to aid them, our'
representatives there may be enabled
to secure the much needed material
