Kenneth Campbell came home
Saturday from a weeks say at
the fair. He reports one of the
best fairs that Oregon has ever
held and that he had a most en
joyable time hobnobbing with
old acquaintances. While there
he was conversing with one of
his friends who had attended
fairs in nearly all of the different
states, who made the statement
that Oregon had as good a fair
as any of them and in some re
spects better. Oregon livestock
will compare favorably with any,
not only in the United States, but
witn any country in the world.
