The citizens of Peru, Ind., are con-
»¡uced that the best interests of their
•own demand that strangers shall know
what a desirublo place it is to live in,
as well as offering first class facilities
for trade, so they are continually think
ing up some new scheme to draw the in
habitants of the surrounding country to
their hospitable city. A free street fair,
keld upon the main business streets of
flie city, has proved a great drawing
card and has been of great value to the
business of Peru.
The street fair as seen iu Peru is a l
most altogether tho development of local
ingenuity. Scarcely a year ago atteution
was called to a street attraction which
was produced in one of the towns iu an
adjacent state. It seemed a good idea,
and a committee of citizens was sent to
ascertain just what it was. Tho gentle
men returned with the idea that Peru
could vastly improve on the plan. It
was at once decided to have a street fair
there. Preparations were begun, and
within a month the first great event was
inaugurated. Even w ith that short tima
for preparation the w eek’s fair proved
such an event that it bus been the talk
of the state ever since The secret lies
principally iu the fact that Pern pos
sesses nn exceptionally energetic class of
business men, who are always ready and
willing to associate themselves closely
aud nso their money to advauco tho in
terests of tho city in any manner possi
ble. In this way Peru has made a repu
tation for itself, and whenever an event
is advertised to take place thcretho peo
ple everywhere show a wonderful con
fidence and lend their patronage to a
most generous degree.
Last year’s fair was a complete suc
cess as a novelty, even though the time
of preparation was so short, and from
(1,000 to 10,000 strangers came to visit
it daily. It was something entirely
new, devised through the ingenuity uud
liberality of the merchants, and not
copied uftcr anyth ng under tho sun.
The fair of 1804 had not been flu'shed
when it was decided to have another
tliis year, and most elaborate prepara
tions have been going on since.
Everything is free. There is no ear
fare to pay to distant grounds, no en
trance fees to see the attractions, aud
there is where the merchants w hofur-
uish this free show aro benefited. A
crowd treated thus generously cannot
fail to ho moved to a degree of generos
ity in return, especially to the exteut of
making purchases from among I lie
tempting offers Of the varied displays.
The association officers, with the aid
of cveiy individual business man iu the
city, have planned an attraction that
would be hard to excel. The business
men and public spirited citizens gener
ally wero first asked for subscriptions to
guarantee tho expenses of tho event. A
fund of several thousuud dollars was as
sured with little trouble, and prepara
tions then began in earnest. Numerous
committees wero empowered to attend
to tho advertising, to interest merchants
in muking displays, to securing amuse
ments for the crowds, and for the dozens
of other necessary things, and the gen
tlemen composing them have done their
work so w ell that complete success for
tho whole is assured.
The principal business thoroughfare
is filled from end to cud w ith displays.
The side streets, too, for several squares
are utilized iu the some manner. Th*
city conucil has authorized the fair as
sociation to suspend travel iu vehicles
through these thoroughfares, thus leav
ing the entire street from curb to curb
open to the people.
Tho indiv dual displays of the tner-
chauts are made in booths or stands lo
cated directly in front of their doois,
across the gutter and curbing. Most of
them are constructed iu a most substan
tial manner, of good lumber and with
waterproof roofs. In tho«e tho merchants
expose their most attractive goods and
vie with each other in displaving in the
most attractive manner possible. Home
of tho booths aro 20 by 40 feet in size,
and it is easy to see that with sneli accom
modations tho displaysean be both com
plete and striking. Many have udded
some form of amusement or free refresh
ment to their displays.
The county fair part— that is, the horse,
rattle, poultry and other departments—
is arranged in the center of the streets,
either in sheds or tents. The art, do
mestic, fancy work and other feminine
departments are given quarters in hails
or vacant storerooms at convenient
places. The races, balloon ascensions,
e ta , are all to be seen upon the streets
and are all free.
The citizens of Pern deserve credit foe
the ingenuity and public spiiit displayed
and deserve the benefits that are sure te
come to a community that works to
gether as one man for tbe improvement
*f tbeir town.
