NO FAIR THIS FALL.
The directors of the agricultural
society held a meeting jesterday after
noon and decided not to hold a fair this
fall. This action was taken for the
reason that the fence around the fair
grounds is in such a dilapidated condi
tion that it is very little protection in
the way in keeping out those who would
rather sneak in than pay a quarter for
admission; and the further fact that in
order to have a place to display products
it would bo necessary to erect a building
to renlaco the one burned last fall. To
complete this work would mean an out
lay of about ono thousand dollars and
the treasury of the society is Jn, a de
pleted condition. Tho society has there
fore concluded to abandon giving a fair
this fall and will unite with tho immigra
tion association in making a. collective
county exhibit at the state fair and
mako an effort to capture the SG00 prize
offered for the best county exhibit. To
this end the oflicers of both organizations
willl work with a will, and they should
receive tho hearty co-operation of every
farmer in Lincoln county.
Tho money received by the fair asso
ciation from tho county will be used in
defraying the expenses of the state fair
A Woman's "Kick-"
I see a paragraph in Uo Telegraph
stating that the fols of ll'O north sic'o
have a nuisance as well as tho south sule,
and I am led to wonder which can bay
the loudest, tho south side dor.keyor the
rorlh sido ones. Vos, wo roppat, t eir
meot'ngs a-o carried on in a disoule-ly
manner. Tr.oy are also a uisgraco 10 uo
town. I am a woman gelling along to
ward a hundred years old and I never
saw or heard of sach antics beroro. Irev
are a lot of old starved out sandhill
grangers. They have brought their
dirty old tents and regardless of tax
payers' rights have prepared to stay.
They dislurb tho peace with their yell
ing. Tho Lord isn't deaf, but ho 60on
w ill bo at that rate. There are sick peo
ple within two and four blocks that are
nearlv set crazy by tho racket. Some of
tho tent goe:s say that it doesn't disturb
hem. But those vei persons can stay
up half the night, and Eloep' until noon
the next day if they choose, while others
aro obliged ,to rise early and attend to
their daily duties. Some have been
obliged to stay home days to catch iip-
with their sleep. ' I was told that tho
reason why that petition from the ladies
didn't pass was because they suspectf d
that it was a Catholic's doings. Now,
please don't lay this to tho poor down
trodden Romans, for I don't belong to
that church, though I wish I did, as
they do not slander their widows; and
that is the pleasantest occupation the
protestante havo seemingly. I am
really proud of our city council that will
favor such proceedings. Now, south
side folks, if you will tio a weight to
your donkey's tail he wont bray, but I
doubt if the north side musanco can bo
so easily got rid of. But npver mind,
neighbors, wo will try and stand it and
pray tho Lord to make our punishment
as short ns possible; and if there is any
more trash in tho surrounding country
send them in and wo will pat them up
and when they have proved a pest long
enough wo we'll send them on their way
Camping in Colorado
Chalk Cki:ek Canon, Col., July 5th.
Editor Tkmiunk: I greet you and
your readers from tho foot of tho Con
tinental Dh'ide. On tho evening of the
1st inst. I took No. 1 for Denver, reach
ing that city on time, and taking break
fast with Mr. Condit. His house was
in a commotion, fitting out and starting
tho party, hemsslf and son Edwin G.,
which I came to join on a trip to the
mountains. Careful hands had secured
a wagon built for mountain travel, pro
vided bedding, tent, a pot-full of boiled
potatoes, twelvo loaves of bread, a box of
canned goods and tho rest. We were
soon off on the old Leadvillo trail, and
by night had advanced twenty-eight
miles. The 3d we drove thirty-five
miles. On tho glorious 4th we ascended
the Kenosba Pass, and drove across
South Park, halting at noon and enjoy
ing the sight of a snow storm on the
mountains while wo ate dinner. That
day we drove forty-two miles, and this
wo have come thirty-nine miles, coming
out of South Park to Tip Top, thence
down into the beautiful valley of the
Arkansas, just below Buena Vi6ta. I
shall not wonder at the name. Such a
view never greeted my eyes before. In
front across tho river, in full view, rise
the College Peaks in tho Continental
Divide. When wo had followed down
the stream an hour wo crossed and came
into this place and are now camped at
the foot of Alpine Pass over the great
bickboue. Expect to dine to-morrow
at timberline. Xow, 3'r. Editor, you
have the mere outline of my first days
out. I wish I could tell ynu something
of the grandeur of this scenery. Words
fail. I have talked of it to Mr. Condit
and "Bert" till they are tired, but can't
say anything to one who isn't now look
ing, or has not the memory of the vision,
I have no words to express tho emotions
within, when I looked on Princeton. My
eyes filled; I gazed in wonder; I took off
my hat and waved it around my head
and yelled. Do not blame mo. I never
was among mountains before. I shall
never use the word lightly again. I used
to be jealous for ourown 6tate when
heard people speak of Colorado. Not so
any more. Sho has one more added to
her worshippers now".
When wo get over the Divide we will
bo among the mountains, so my com
panions tell me. If there are yet greater
things I cannot toll fcut I may go mad
with wonder and delight. We have been
well, felt no inconyience from the alti
tude. Am writing'.this by the light of
our camp-lire. Love to all who may in
