Lindsey spoke especially of the in

in the Lave Stock, and hoped that
everyone who owned stock would ex
hibit next year.
Mr. Sams made a, short talk urging
that the community Fairs be con

terest in the County Fair and because
there are people who have no way of
getting to the County Fair who need
the inspiration of them. He declared
that it was a reflexion on Polk Coun

amqpg visitors that onlv three pens
of full bred poultry were exhibited
when there might just as well have
ben one hundred. He also urged that"
Polk try to establish for herself the

that if one was to have the best stock
it would mean the . best crops and that
in turn would mean the best soil.
