sores, dirty corrals, dirty clothes,
dirty dishes, dirty faces, and every
thing that spoils dirt from tho smelly

They wero attired In all sorts ot
ways. Somo wero In khaki suits, some

was not such a groat cruwd as that
of last year, It should bo remembered
that thoso who owned property In
this city, contributed to tho occasion
by working around tholr own places
and doing a general cleanup, so that
all combined swept Logan ns clean as
a now penny, or as one exuberant
Boostors expressed It, Logan had a
good clean shave and haircut this tlmo
and no mistake.
