queer incidents just preceding
Milly Stockbridge's death.' "
She had evidently told me ell
she knew of the tragedy, and it
seemed high time to change the
current of her thoughts in a de

"I think that you're getting
morbid, and that we've had en

"Come on out into the kitchen
with me. I'm going to search
the refrigerator and fix you a
snack to eat."
"Oh. I couldn't eat a mouthful
it would choke me!" she pro

test was sincere.
She had been terribly shaken by

but I knew that she practically
had fasted sirce mornins, and was

It was a dismaying prospect, in

but I hoped to be able to manage
with only a pretense.

Three Suits Are Filed
In Independence Court
INDEPENDENCE. Or.. July 26.
(Special to The Statesman) -
William dawes is the complain
ant in a case filed in Justice Ra
ker's court against V. W. Spring.
Mr. Dawes alleges that he sold an
automobile to Spring under con- j
tract and that the latter sold the;
car while it was still the property
of the complainant.
In the same court another case
was filed by the Knight Adjust
ment company for the collection of
a claim of $168.76 against J. L.

raents to the buildin.es and the
grounds. After the penurious al
lowances made by the last legis
lature for permanent improve
nients, they will wonder where it
all came from.
The state fair is handled on a
business basis that will probably
set the pace for fairs and expo
sitions the country over. There,
all money received for cate re
ceipts and concessions goes into
tne fair treasury. There are no
leaks. The marveious increase in
receipts under the management
of A. H. Lea, who has been 1n
charge for five years, is remark
able, dating from the first year
Qf his management. He insti
tuted a system of auditing and
handling the ticket collectors
and loney handlers that elimin
ated all leaks, and sent the gate
receipts up thousands of dollars.
Cautious Policy I-?I.
The fair board has been care
ful in its expenditures, and has
each year erected new buildines
and other improvements from its
funds without appropriation from
the state therefor.
One great monument to the
fair board's management, to Mr.
Lea and to Governor Withycombe,
the preat friend of agriculture
tnd the state fair, and who made
it possible, is the livestock stad
ium. Erected at a cost of $120,
000, it cost the state nothing ex
cept an appropriation for seating
after the.buildinsr was completed.
How was it done?
Of course there was never that
much available money in the
treasury at one time. But the
manager and the hoard members
went to the three Salem banks
and on their personal notes bor
rowed the money, for this gigan
tic undertaking, thus giving to
Oregon the finest livestock stad
ium of any state fair in the coun
try. The notes were paid off in
two years from savings on the
fair receipts. Rut It took close
Heuring and 'rigid economy in all
Now the same thing is being
repeated by the present board un
der the guidance of Manager Lea.
The flreat Machinery Hall.
The last legislature appropri
ated $20,000 for a machinery
hall, This hall was planned and
constructed and work started
along the fence, south of the main
west entrance. Mr. Lea decided
that the new hall would be to
tally incapable of accommodating
the available exhibits. And he
vanted them all to exhibit. So
he jrot the board together, made
Arrangements at the Salem banks
t advance the funds on the sig
nature of the board members and
'limself. and it went through. He
ca'led the machinery dealers to
gether and had them siern con
tracts for space at a big rental,
to he paid for in installments in
ndvanee. so that the monev could
be used in the construction of
he building, thus greatly de
creasing the amount necessary
Thus a machinery hall is being
"rected 0 57 feet long and 34 feet
wide, with a 30-foot cement road
way In front. It will hold all of
the exhibits, including tractors,
farm machinery, farm lighting
plants, and general machinery. It
is one of. the most needed and
most pleasing improvements that
has ever been erected on the fair
grounds. In the center is an
nrnamental entrance, which will
be the main entrance for auto
mobiles from Salem, along thi
road at the south end of the camp

wa-s to be of wood, but the new
tireproof building, built to endure
tor all time, and a wonderful as
set to the state, will cost $33,000,
paid out of the fair receipts.
The legislature was asked for
a new sheep barn, but refused.
Mr. ' Lea has completely rebuilt
the old poultry building into
modern shotep barn that will ad
mirably fill the bill.
New roofs have been put on
four of the stock barns, on half

Miles of 12-lnch tile and later
