The Colored Fair a Success.
The colored fair which was held
here at the fair grounds Tuesday,
Wednesday and Thursday of last
week was a distinct success from
every standpoint. There were a
large number of highly creditable
exhibits in every department. The
exhibits in the agricultural build
ing were well displayed and pre
sented a scene that reflected credit
on the race. The entries in tbt
livestock and poultry departments
were numerous and of a high order
Another thing to the credit ol
the negro race was the splendid or

and also at night upon the grounds
