! ABOUT THE CHATHAM FAIR. J
Best in History of The Association in
| Every Particular.
i As we stated last week the Chat
-1 ham Fair held in Siler City this year
was the best that has ever been held, ,
1 both from the point of interest, en- I
tertaining features and financial. Here *
1 tofore the Fair has always found it j <
! necessary to borrow money to get a 1
! clean slate and even then it would
i not always come clear of incum- i I
Despite the fact that a heavy ren- |
tal has been paid for location and oth- ( j
er unavoidable expense, every check i- j
for premiums and for. the expense of, «
the Fair has been mailed out and it
j is found that there is quite a nice l
| surplus in the treasury. *
Mr. W. C. York, the manager and
Mrs. P. H. Elkins, the secretary, de
gg-rvp every rommendation they are re
ceiving for the most excellent manner . j
in which the Fair was planned and for
the economical, business like way m j
which everything was handled.
The amusements and entertainment I
furnished at the Fair was of the very j
best, and the exhibits were indeed S
good. The order and decorum arising I
from the standardization of affairs j
were the best and evervbodv has X
given the Chatham Fair for 1923 thi ?
highest praise and approval. v
