THE MOCKING SENTINEL.
66th. Year, Number 13.
THE OHIO DEMOCRAT.
25th. Year, Number 31,
Circulation 3000. One Dollar Per Year.
LOGAN, HOCKING COUNTY, OHIO, THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 1906.
The Only Democratic Paper In the County
Hooking County Fair Be
GREAT CROWDS ATTEND.
That County fairs In Hocking Coun
ty are to be spoken of lightly and
looked upon as an experiment, was
prior last week upon the trial balance
sheet of the ledger, but has now been
permanently transferee! to the credit
side and Is a fixture of this communi
ty. The old time fairs of Hocking to
which we always spoke of, and hoped
for their return, are no more land
marks In the gala day affairs of our
county and town. The Hocking coun
ty fair of last week is tho marker, it
is the high water mark that future
generations may point to as the deep
notch on the stick, that tells the tale
of large doings here abouts.
To the fair board deserves the credit
for untiring efforts, everyday plowing
on and advertising that made the fair
what it was. They gave good premi
ums, got good horses, had good entries
In all departments; secured first class
attractions and the thing was a
The weather man pulled the pucker
ing strlngon the rain bag, and barring
the sharp torrent of Friday afternoon
the weather was most perfect. The
town was ablaze wlthstreet cr.versaiui
conveyances, and all put on an ap
pearance that something unusual was
doing. We had pent up our energies
for fourteen years, and then lifted tho
lid, and had a "durn crackln time."
Tho Hackman put the prices down to
25 cents round trip, and the railroad
run trains every half hour at 10c each
way, And so every body went to the
fair. Friday all the stores closed and
over 3000 persons were on the ground.
The races were just nicely on when a
storm came up and lightning came
sharp, striklngCharles Hutton knock
ing him insensible. He recovered.
Nearly every body got a good wetting
or smeared with mud, but all kept
their good humor, and had a good
Saturday was the banner day, nearly
3500 cash admissions wero received
and more than 5000 people on the
grounds. The omitted races of Fri
day were put on and there was racing
galore. The baloou assensjon was on
and a most successful flight it was.
The weather was hot, but Ideal for a
fair. The red lemonade tasted good
and farmors by the hundreds brought
their families and spread their dinner
upon tho grass and had a good old
fashioned picnic. Miles of horses
close side by side, were hitched to the
fences. Not a stampede nor a broken
strap happened in all that bunch of
horses and rigs. Everybody hud a
good time and was glad he was there.
Tho barns were lilled with good race
horses, the buildings with farm pro
ducts aud needle work and art.
Thousands of people thronged tho
buildings and admired the "big pump
kin and tho brood sow." And that
big pumpkin was there, too; Hill
Ellck brought it. He' raised it In
Hocking county, and It weighed 02
louhuV"utirl -measured -30 - Indies- In
When all was over and tho people
went to the quiet of their homes, they
could still hear the roar of the mega
phone, the screech of the graphaphono
the clug of tho gas engines propolllng
the farm machinery, the howl of the
hawkers, tho crash of tho bands, the
ping of tho target gun, the bleat of
the sheep and moo of tho cow. All, all
still reverberating from throne to
throne among the mountains and
recesses of the brain.
From out the bursting headaches
and sun-grin wrinkles and dust caked
bronchlals all remitted words of praise
for the success of the fair and wore
glad thoy went.
Among the entries In this grand dis
play of farm products, live stock and
handiwork wore tho following:

Now llston, wo aro going to tell you
tho pumpkin story ot the fair, and it
is no whopper, either. BUI Eliek of
Rootcbridgo, li tho boss pumpkin
raiser of the county, and in order not
to havo all the city chaps disappoint
ed in not seeing a "big pumpkin,"
bill brought down a display, among
whioh wag tho ronl ideal thing, "the
big pumpkin." It weighed 1)2 pounds
and measured !i0 inches in diameter.
A young lady twonty-four years old
got ou the scales and just tipped the
beam at exactly the pumpxin's
weight. Think of 'it, a pumpkin as
heavy as a woman Not a long-armed
mau hi the orowd could begin to
reach arouud tho pnrnpkin aud did
not try the young lady. When tho
oity follow yollod buck to the gang
that lie waB going out to the fair "to
seethe big pumpkin," he could sco
it alright enough, lor Bill Ellck had
it there. So much for tho pumpkin.
Tho agrlnuitural ball was most
beautifully decorated with palms,
(lowers and Urns brought thorn by
Mrs. Rev. Spoohr, Mrs. F. Y. Rom
pel, fir., and Mrs. John Saudeison.
Theso beautiful plants gavo tropical
tone to the place and 'attracted much
Attention. The mammoth gorauium

In the agricultural building the De
Laval company demonstrated their
cream separators and wero very cour
teous to tho poople in giving away
fans whioh wore a luxury those hot
days. Tho barnecs display of J T.
Sanderson was most elegant, and the
pottery exhibit of the Logan Pottery
company was a sourco of much prlae
in our Hocking hills.
Iu all, the agricultural department
was a success. The displays wero far
beyond tho expectation of our people
and few had knowledge that such ex
cellent fruit, vegetables and grain
wero raised in our county. It was a
revolatiou aud a prldo to our people
and made us fool u prido In living in
old Hooking. Our hills aro alright,
aud we aro proud of them. No fruit
(homo grown) or (arm products at
any lair could exoell that of our own
and at our own fair
Ou tho grounds wore many exhibits
of a commercial nature of the busi
