This seems to meet with a great deni of

favor and will result in a stronger effort

in receipt of four inquiries from farmers
33
of tl.e middle west, who nt present are
34
in the Willamette and Rogue River val­
leys, asking when the county fair is to
be held. They slate that they are look­ 3S
ing for a location and would like to 3tl
come here at the time the fair is to lie 37
held in order that they may have an
opportunity to see what can lie raised 3S
in this county.
Doubtless there are 31»
others of the same mind, and if the 40
farmers will get in and bring in the 41
liest they hnve on their ranches it will 42
be productive of much good. Everyone 43
who is engaged in ranching or gardening
ought to remelier that they are liable to 44
get a handsome premium for their 45

that Klamath Bounty would not have a 47
