Polk County Will Have No Display
at State Fair This Year.
The county exhibits at the Oregon
State Fair In Salem are always inter
esting, and a big advertising feature
for the sections represented. This
year six counties will exhibit, as
follows : Marlon, Benton, Lane, Linn,
Clatsop and Multnomah. The last
two have never been represented
before. The county courts of Mult
nomah and Clatsop counties have
each appropriated $1000 to provide for
an adequate display. j
Marion county will exhibit, but she
will not compete for the prize. The
outside counties say that Marion has
an advantage in being near the fair.
Accordingly she will withdraw and
the other contestants will all have an
equal chance.
Individual farm displays will also
be a prominent feature in the pavilion.
Two entries have already been made:
Mrs. F. A. Wolf of Falls City and
W. H. Hulbert of Albany. The first
prize in this division is $100 in cash
and a $75 Studebaker wagon, donated
by that house, while the second
premium will be $50 in cash and a $C5
Iowa Cream Separator, donated by
the Mitchell, Lewis &Staver Company.
