Get ac quainted with your neighbor Let there.be no strangers at this meeting. If you see anybody that you do not know, just go up to them and make yourself "known. Everybody in Polk county should .know everybody else in Polk county. Set aside this -day and time to do hat very thing. Governor4 Bickett is coming to preach nothing but Americanism, pure and undefiled to us. He is go ing to tell you why we are in this war why we should win it, and what we must do in order to do that. Gov ernor Bickett is a finished orator, but what is better, his whole heart is wrappd Up in the cause he is advo cating. He has had invitations from several western states to make war speeches, but he is first going to ad dress his own people. Be sure and hear him. A military band from Camp Wads- worth, 30 strong, will furnish music for the occasion. w. s. S- POLfc COUNTY FAIR. Octobr 9, 10 and 11 is the date se lected for the Polk County Fair, and that time is rapidly approaching. Ev ery effort has been put forth this year to make the Fair a success. Liberal premiums are offered on almost ev erything, the- farm, forest or quarry . in Polkl county can produce- It is nowuirto the people to seject the best specimens of everything and bring it for exhibition. Experienced judges will be supplied by the North Carolina State Board of Agriculture, so that there can. and . will be no favoritism - shown, but. ev erything will be judged upon its real merits. We hope that everybody will take something that you consider worthy of exhibition, whether the premium list provides for it or not, take it to the Fair. Superintendent Dedmond is doing ' aU in, his power to make a ereditabje showing in his department, that of mineral,; forest, and, quarry, and- he :earnestly requests that every one hav ing any kind.' of mineral specimen Secured in Polk county, should take it to the Fair. Also asks all saw mill and lumber men to take specimens pf timber and lumber. Let us show the world what Polk county, has in the way of minerals and woods. It is unnecessary to urge the good women to take specimens of their handiwork, for they always come up with their part of the work. But this year be sure and take anything that pertains to food conservation, and show your neighbor what you are doing to help win the war. W. S. S . j JUNIOR DEPARTMEANT.
