A Tri-Town Fair.
A citizen suggests that Oconeo
county should have a county fair that
will ropresont the entire county and
not any certain part of the county,
and about tho only way to do that
properly is to have a COUNTY PAIR
that rotates each year to a different
town. Space for exhibits will bo pro
vided under a spacious tent, which
tent will bo owned jointly by tho
three towns-Sonoca, Walhalla and
Wejllminster. Prizes and othor ne
cessities will bo oblainod Jointly each
year from all three of tho towns.
Since Oconeo seems yot like "all
flnul-divided into three parts"
Ibis suggestion of a rotating tent and
ii rotating fair seems the fairest Idea
that an unprejudiced mind could en
tertain toward a solution of the place
to hold a fair,
Il is tho only fair proposition for
a county-wldo fair that has been put
forward, lu tho opinion of tho wriotr.
Let us hear from thoso who are
interested, What, do YOU think
about the matter? Do you want n
meeting in your town to discuss lt
and ACT UPON this suggestion? lt
I? almost too late to act this year, but
NOT TOO ATE for concerted action.
In'tho first placo, If one town pre
pared for tho fair alono Ihoro would
not bc near tho intorost taken over
the county at large that would bo
taken If it were known that all the
towns were pulling togother for a
real county fair.
Then, In the second place, it would
fall heavily upon ono town to finance
a fair every year all by Itself.
pion, in the third placo, a t'rl-towu
associatlou would assure the pcoplo
that tho fair would function for at
least three years, and each town
could strive to make the fair better
Let your views be known at onco,
especially the business men of tho
throe towns, for there mus b^ .
certed action without dela.> i the
fair starts this fall.

Many heard Dr. Clarence Poe, edi

at Seneca a short time ago. Dr. Poe,

marketing of cotton, as woll as other
'farm products, was tho right way to
do it. "Many people WISH for better
cotton prices, but it takes more than

would let others fight for his country
and then bo on hand to enjoy the
blessings of peace, without having
earned them, according to Dr. Poe.
