been perfected, especially for the
farmeis and others who attend
and wish a safe and convenient
place to put their wagons, buggies
and stock. The large woodedlsec

enclosure has been set apart for
this purpose, so all who wish can
bring on the inside their vehicles

The fair will be clean and up-

is small, too small, in fact, for
the many attractions to be seen.
