Lm year a total of 163 fairs
. were staged in North Carolina. Of
thus number 126 ware community
faira, 36 were county fain, and one
State fair. Pertupa no one thing
creates a greater degree of cucunun
ity iatcrest and pride than the com
munity or roomy fair. These fake
create * spirit of friendly rivalry
among the individual farmers aad
farm women. Aside Irma the in
fluence the fair has upon better
farming, it furnishes a place for
the lodes to gather and exchange
news on matters pertaining to ag
riculture. The fair h a place where
people get new idea* and team new
The question *», Do tbe farmers
take enough interest in their agri
cultural fans? The chief purpose
»»1 a fair is to pramotc agricultural

them selves can make a fair what
U is intended to he. Official* of the
'Harnett County Agricultural Fair
anmriation will spare no efforts to
make the fair this year the very
/ best in the history of the Fair asso
ciation. Vat unless they receive the
co-operation of the farmers of the
four Counties — Harnett, Sampson.
Johnston and Cumberland—includ
ed their efforts win prove futile.
Than is a tendency upon the port
of the fanners to regard a county
fair aa a town institution, probably
owing to the fact that such fairs are
hektln the towns. This ides should
be removed from the minds of the
people living in the rural districts.
They should regard the county fair

are reported as favorable, while in
others the solicitors and grand jo

made by the grand jury in this
county revealed Improper treat

was called to the attention of the
board of county commissioners, and
the board lost no time in making a

Solicitor T. A. McNeill made a
personal investigation of both the
convict caaep and county jail in
that county. No doubt the .heces

like investigation has been made in
