WALLOWA COUNTY FAIR AT
TRACTS INTEREST OF MANY
Not only the stockmen of Wallowa
county but those from surrounding
points are manifesting a desire to be
represented in the exhibit durfng the
Wallowa Countyyy Fair, beginning
This is encouraging to the manage
ment of the Fair. Not only this,
but the general Interest, through the
county, apparently taken by practi
cally every resident, adds to the en
couragement of the men having di
rect charge of the fifth annual ex
hibit. One matter that has attracted
wide Interest, and merltedly so, Is
ihe care taken by the management
to Interest the glrla and boys of tho
cotvnty In Various contests. In each
jf these competitions the premium
offered is sufficient to .give any.
young lady or gntleman a neat
sum of money.
What Is now very pertinen.t to
the csccese of th Fair is that e-
ybody in the county, whether able
to make an. exhibit or not, should
make the Fair a topic or daily con
versation; to devise plans by which
the management may reach the tn
terest of all; and to keen the en
thusiasm among the people atirrvd
as lit Is at present.
