very pleasing feature of the parade
I at the county fair Friday afternoon
were the decorated wagons loaded
with pupils from these schools.
The Lott school, which is taught |
by Miss Maggie Reel, was very at
tractively decorated with the na
tional colors. It was occupied by
the fair teacher and fifteen or twen
ty pupils. As these bright and hap
py pupils peered out from beneath
! the beautiful canopy top it presented
a very pleasing picture, one that
provoked much favorable com
Another strikingly beautiful wag
on was that of the Red Hill school,
the "color scheme" being deep red
so as to reflect or suggest the name
of the school. Not only were the
wheels and body of the wagon en
tirely covered with rj.d, but the
mules wore large red blankets
bearing the name of the school in
white letters. Misses Louise Lyon,
Miss Mabel Strom and a large nurn- j
ber of pupils fwere in the wagon,
many of the pupils carrying ban-1
ners containing the letters R. H.
S.- Red Hill school.
These two attractively decorated j
wagons added much to thepa

The Lott and Red Hill schools
have seta good example to other ru

If the fair can be made such a

farmers, think of what next year's

do. Quite a number in different
sections have already voluntarily
pledged their support and co-opera

While the liquor was gurgling from
