The world applauds the winner and
the record-breaker. The State Fair
is both. By leaps and bounds It grows.
In popularity It gains. In attendance
It went beyond expectations In quan
tity and quality of exhibits It surpassed
all predecessors. The present grounds
are no longer adequate. Over 500 cars
were used In bringing exhibits. The
President and the private citizen
touched elbows within its gates.
Over 6000 pounds of silver wore paid
in admissions. Receipts from all
sources total $20,000 more than ever
before. Good humor prevailed. 'Every
body was satisfied. The man In the
moon worked nights. Every depart
ment was complete. The -vast crowds
were orderly. Every olllcer was on
duty at proper time and place. Un
pleasant incidents did not happen.
Words of praise were heard on every
The State Fair advertising brought
larger crowds to Columbus than ever
before. There was no confusion. The
Fair started on time. Every detail of
the program was kept to the minute.
Doing away with the free-pass curse
has won respect and support. An In
crease of over 20 per cent. In both at
tendance and exhibits is the story.
Demands for exhibit space next year
have already been made. This is a
new indication of the growth and suc
cess of Ohio's Big Exposition. Thanks.
Sues For Damages.
Eev. C. W. Eldridge, of Cincinnati,
personally well known to many persons
in this county, was seriously hurt on
July 4 by being struck in the face by
the falling stick of a sky rocket while
watching the display In Eden Park.
He was struck on the left cheek and
the flesh torn away until the bones
were exposed. He brought suit in the
Common Pleas Court In Cincinnati on
last Thursday against the members of
the Carnival Association praying for
810,027 damages, alleging that his
hurts are such as to impair his efil-
ciency as a public speaker and minister
of the gospel.
Make the Old Farm Pay.
What's the use or trying to fit square
pins In round holes? Sometimes that
is the reason we do not get the largest
returns from our farms. We are grow
ing the wrong crop or using the wrong
method or the wrong rotation, or some
times it is simply the wrong variety.
It may be that we are just planting
the crop at the wrong time or putting
in too much or not enough seed. If
we are, we are simply wasting energy
and splintering the pin. '
The Ohio Experiment Station has
been studying varieties and rotations
and methods and time and rate of
seeding, etc., for more than a quarter
of a century and the results of its ex
periments will help us fit the pin.
See the big Station Exhibit at the
Ralnsboro Fair and study the results
of the Experiments Illustrated.
Well Managed Farms.
Highland, county has two large and
-well managed farms that are a credit
to the county. They are the Dunlap
Pony Farm and the White Dairy Farm
Mr. Dunlay raises ponies almost ex
clusively on his two farms, 536 acres
in extent, and has 275 ponies on hand
at present, of' which 107 are brood
mares. This number he intends to
increase to 200 within a year or two
On the 100 acre farm near Greenfield
are the residence of the owner, the
office building and two sale barns
where the sale ponies are kept. This
Is the largest pony farm andherd in

a resident of the township, and asking
that he be enjoined from acting as a
member of the board.
The other members of the board are
George SIders, Arthur Sprinkle, J. L.
Mercer and A. J. Inlow. When the
question of hiring teachers for the
eight districts of the township came
up the board was unable to agree.
Siders and Sprinkle wanted to hire
certain teachers and Mercer and Inlow
wanted other teachers and although
many meetings were held an agree
ment could not be reached.
The matter was brought before the
county commissioners. Both sides
were present, represented by lawyers.
A petition was presented to the com
missioners, signed by 150 of the electors
of the township, asking that J. W.
Moore be appointed to fill the vacancy
which It was claimed existed by reason
of the removal of Ford. These petitions
were circulated by friends of Mercer

It was claimed by Siders and Sprin
kle that as the question of whether or
not Ford was a member of the board
of education was pending In the Cir
cuit Court that the commissioners had
no jurisdiction in the matter and
could not determine whether Ford
had a right to sit on the board or ap
point anyone to fill the alleged vacancy.
The. commissioners decided that
Ford had removed from the township
and that a vacancy had been caused by
his removal and appointed J. W
Moore to fill the vacancy.
The school board with Moore acting
will meet Thursday or Friday night
and hire teachers and It Is understood
that school will begin next Monday.
As Is usual in school fights much
bitterness was engendered.

Following a stormy meeting of the
Penn township board of education
which was held recently, Thomas
Johnson resigned as a member of the
board. At the meeting a bitter con
troversy arose over the employment of
teachers. During this discussion It
was thought at one time that J. F. R.

to blows, the lie being passed. At the
close of this meeting Mr. Johnson

Our New Constitution.
At the election on the constitu
tional amendments held last Tuesday,
all of the 42 proposals of importance
were adopted, except Woman's Suff
rage and Good Roads.
It was amusing to note the com
ments of the press of the eastern
cities on this action, especially the
New York papers. From the tone of
the editorials In these journals, rep
resenting Wall Street and big busi
ness, one would think that the people
of Ohio had committed the unpardon
able sin; that this commonwealth was
doomed; that chaos would reign and
disaster come to all business.
The amendment providing for the
Initiative and Referendum seemed to
be the one causing the greatest alarm.
And this Is the face of the fact that
It received a majority of over 100,000,
the largest majority for any proposal

Any change In the form of govern
ment Is received by these self-ap
pointed guardians of the people with
alarm. Every change brings from
their lips the cry of socialism and an
archy. Their position Is absurd. They
think that a constitution adopted 60
years ago Is suitable for the condi
tions of the present day; that it is
almost criminal to change it. Yet,
they will admit that business, civic,
economic and social conditions have
undergone a remarkable change and
development during that time. They
will toll you that the man who would
conduct his business in the same
manner today as he did 00 years ago
was doomed to failure; that there has
been marvelous progress made In
every field of human endeavor. And
with this statement hardly out of
their mouths will argue that we have
made this development and progress
under the old constitution; that It
was good enough for our fathers and
Is therefore good enough for us; thus
claiming that everything else Is
changing, but that the laws for meet
ing these changed conditions should
be as unchangable and immutable as
the laws of the Medes and Persians.
We believe that the people of Ohio
are a fairly intelligent class of people
and whenever they decide by an over
whelming majority, that they want
something, that we are opposed to,
we are not going to throw up our
hands and cry that disaster will fol

stroyed. The new constitution places addi

ple and we hope and believe that they

Wednesday was Old Soldiers and
The annual reunion of the Highland
County Soldiers was held on the
grounds that day, the soldiers being
the guests of the Fair Association.
Gen. Axline and Judge O'Neal, two
prominent "old soldiers" were present
and made eloquent and patriotic ad
dresses. It was a great day for the
veterans who enjoyed to the fullest
extent renewing old acquaintance and
exchanging remlnlscenses of the days
of "Gl to 05."
A campfire was held at night, which
was attended by several hundred of
the "old boys" and everyone of them
had a good time.
The races Wednesday afternoon
were the 2.40 Pace; 3.00 Trot and 2.25
Pace. These races were well fillect
and were hotly contested. At the
time of going to press It was Impos
sible to give the results of the races.
