Every growing and ambitious town is com
posed of three elements. Those who work
patriotically, vigorously mid iulelligei.tly for
its advancement; tho.-o who are in a statu of
apathy or indilTcienci, and tho.se who take a
curious delight in discouraging the effort of
others by ridicule, by a persistent denial that
any progress can or has been accomplished,
ami boasting of every other town but their
own. The last class are called croakers, but
they really are something woive, for their op
position does not arise irom despondency,
but from the uneuviablo spirit which will
neither act itself nor sutler othcis to net.
Tho State Fair.
From a letter from Mr. Geo. Belshaw
written at Salem Wednesday wo take tho fol
lowing notes regarding the State Fair:
Dear Sin: 1 drop you u lino in haste to
let von kuow how the Fair is progressing; so
fur it is not a success on aerount of so little
accommodations Irom the Society. A great
deal of crumbling is heard everywhere;
for demanding J2.fj(l at the gates; aintlier
having to pay entry fees for lirsf, second and
third premiums aud only entitled to gno if it
is gained, and if no com pi tition it in reduced;
ami many other selfish motives of Ihe socie
ty. Altogether, it is injuring tho society.
So fur tho attcmlanew is the sandiest I have
ever seen it. A number are talking of com
ing to the Limn County Fair towards which
there seems to be a geuend good feeling.
The pavilion is not morn than two-thirds
full; hogs and chickens almost u failure; cat
tle aud horses are very good ami many of
them; black m.ilies sml Hereford's are well
represented and aro good; the heavy Clyde
draft horses are better than ever, tho sheep
are also good. However, tho people are not
numerous eiioueh yet to look lit them, and
j that is what is wanted at a Fair, to make
! it successful."
"You cau say to Ihe peoplo that Laiio
