EVERY DAY l
THE AGRICULTURAL FAIR
One of the most successful events
held in Bourbon county in recent
years was the Agricultural Fair
given at the Bourbon County High
School in Millersburg under the au
spices of the i Junior Agricultural
Club of the school and kindred in
terests throughout the county. The
event was fully treated in our Mil
lersburg department, but owing to a
pressure of advertising we could not
give space to the premium list,
which was quite lengthy.
Among the premiums offered at
the fair were three given by THE
BOURBON NEWS, as follows: Best
peck sweet potatoes, premium, one
year's subscription to THE NEWS,
T. J.- Cartmell; 'Best half-peck
onions, premium one year's subscrip
tion to THE NEWS, R. L. Wilson;
Best two Southdown ewes, any age,
first premium, one year's subscrip
tion to THE NEWS, Reynolds Let
ton. The first fair held last' year was a
success, but profiting by the omis
sions on that occasion, Professor J.
.W. Lancaster and his corps of able
assistants saw that nothing was
overlooked this year which would
aid to the success of their, under
taking. To the older residents who held
pleasant memories of the old Bour-
bon County Fair, which ran for a
period of sixty-five years, vthe pres
ent fair was compared favorably.
The show in the floral hall was
equal. to that of anycounty fair in
the State. Women's work predom
inated, and long tables of delicious
cakes, pies, bread and candies, some
of them prepared by girls not yet
out of their teens, showed the ex
cellent work the fair is accomplish
ing. The live stock exhibit comprised
hogs, sheep, cattle, horses, mules,
ponies. There were numerous ex
hibits of chickens, ducks, geese,
turkeys and guineas, and two rings
of hunting dogs, with several en
tries, attracted much attention. An
old-fashioned hand cider press made
and furnfshed to the thirsty a splen
did article of sweet cider, sans
"kick." The ladies of the Parent
Teachers' Association furnished for
twenty-five cents a luncheon of
burgoo, sandwiches and coffee.
The object of Jthe association is
"to stimulate 'an interest in improv
ed agriculture and schools." Locat
ed in one of the richest agricultural
sections in the world, it is the aim
'of Prof. Lancaster and his associ
ates to improve rural conditions and
to lead the boys and girls to a high
er appreciation of their opportuni
ties at home, and to fit them for a
happy, useful, consecrated rural ser
vice. The annual hog sale held Friday
afternoon- netted 114.50, which
was turned over to the Parent
Teachers' Association to aid in its
