Tygh Valley, Sept. 15
Our little city looks this
afternoon like a county seat
on circus day, with a good
old fashioned country fair
added. The grounds and
buildings are in perfect con
dition and all ready for the
big crowds that will com
mence to arrive tonight.
In fact a number of gay
parties are already ' on the
grounds. An occasional
camping outfit and party
are dotting the camping
grounds with their tempor
ary homes assuring success
to the efforts of the man
agement which has done
everything possible for per
fect conditions upon and
about the fair grounds.
The second annual Southern
Wasco Fair is going to be a
success, the biggest success
of any thing in the way of
entertainment ever offered
or undertaken here.
Ths wild west feature of the fair
will be a Bcream. You don't need
to go to the seat of war In Europe
to find excitement, or to the much
advertised Wild West shows In dis
tant towns to see real horse and bull
riding by the best riders In this part
of the country. The best riders and
tho wildest horses will he here and

broncho,- where both have received
their schooling and where both are
at their best There will be no In
human "stunts" but the wild west
performances will be thrillers. A
special arena has been Just com
pleted for these performances.
Exhibit buildings and covered
sheds for displaying and taking care
of agricultural exhibits and live
