AMIICH TOWN ?
County Agent Ceo. It. Briggs sug
gests that Uconeo ought to have a
county fair. And she ought to have.
There is not a county in South Caro
Una that is better prepared to hold
an annual fair than Oco;?ee. She lias
the products to prepare and exhibit
- agricultural products, manufac
tured products. livestock, fruits,
vegetables-everything that grows,
and hundreds of things that are man
ufactured or made in the homes and
on the farms of our county.
?Mr. Briggs* suggestion is a good
one, and his query "Which Town?"
ls a pertinent one.
'.Which town?" asks Mr. Briggs,
"will work for the fair?"
Every town In Oconeo ought to
work for it. Every town cannot get
it, but tho ono that Is ready to do
and will do the most toward making
an Oconeo fair a succoss ought to get
the fair-and then all the others
ought to pitch right in and help the
ono that gets it.
'Walhalla ought to have the fair.
Wo can get lt if wo will go a ter lt.
.But it is going to take some money,
Rome effort, concerted action and a
hard pull. A fair ls something that
Oconeo really needs-not a little side
show with a few products carelessly
dumped about the grounds, but a
real county fair, gotten up on real
exhibition principles, carried out as
a real fair, and to bo made worth
Will we push and pull for an Oco
neo county fair, or pass it up with
If Ceo. it. Brigg* ;;oes after a fair
for Oconeo, our county is more than
apt to have a fair-and one worth
while. Walhalla ought lo have the
fair. Wc cnn have ii if we will.
The question is largely ono for our

FEARFUL HURRICANE STRIKES
Along Coast in Metropolitan Are?
Muny Lives Wore Lost.
.Now York, June 12.-The death
toll of tho brief but terrific hurri
cane that swooped down on tho Met
ropolitan area late yesterday passed
tho sixty mark to-day, with Indica
tions that tho total number of dead
might go much higher.
The death list leaped ahead whoa
an incoming tido returned IS moro
bodies that had hoon swept out to
sea last night. Four moro bodies
were recovered at 'Hunters4 Island,
and two wore reported to have boen
picked up at Travers Island.
City Island-haven for tho Sunday
pleasure seekers and amateur fisher
men-was the hardest hit point in
the Metropolitan area, but casualties,
mostly by drowning, wore reported
from many other points.
The beach at City Island to-day
presented a desolate spectacle. Sev
eral hundred porsons, relatives of
the missing-worn by hysteria
waited lu little groups among the
wreckago on tho saud for some word
of the fate of their loved ones.
Marino squad police, exhausted by
their all-night vigil, continued their
cruise, keeping a sharp look-out for
The full toll of the storm may not
be known for days. The crowd that
thronged City Island yesterday were
drawn from all parts of the Metro
politan district, and probably num
bered many persona from distant
points who had gono to the Island to
escape the broiling heat.
'Boatmen at City Island said thora
wero 4 6 small boats as yet unac
counted for. Occupants of many of
these undoubtedly were saved by U.
S coast guards and by members of
yacht clubs about the island, who
put out as soon as tho terrific blow
had subsided. But (he police believe
many more were lost. There were at
least 250 small boats and canoes out
when tho squall struck.
