1t is ucb' pity that lbere are so
ioy peolpi'namong us ready to dash
cold water on every new enterprise
proposed. A more into comtparative
ly unbeaten paths strikes terror .to
their souls, and if the step contailt
energy, poul, *td w Nornmal outlay of
money, they declainm its antithesis im
mediately; or turn ani indifferent back
dud crouch lower still into their ruts
of apaitly. How can a man ekpect to
make a fortune when one scarcely re
alizes that he lives, or if tbatf where
he lives? Advertisemtent as wall. as
competiion, is the life of trade.
So long as we fail to realize or take
advantage of the manifold natural
benefits with which a gracious Provi
deuce ihas surrounded Its, just so long
will we bring up the rear in the march
ofprogress. instead of leaditg as we
should. We seem in a mteasure,
though, to be waking from our Rip
Vau Winkle sleep, as It' R. talk, the
magnificent new court house and
liamtley's real estate boom donate; and
in giving a good, long stretch--as is
only natural after such a lengthy nap
-let us scatter broadcast the rust
whichl lies thick upott our joints, lift
up our head' and give a good hottest
'rebake-off" to the twetiy years of 'itn
notcuous destetude." which enfolds us,
and rise with a leap into the determi
'^Do noble things,
Not dream them all day long."
All this leads to a smnall Iair talk I
wiasf to gice your readers.
Undouhtedly it is to the interest of
the whole pariseh-and more especial
ly the parish seal-to grant unlimited
concession and encouragement without
stint to its continuance: to speak a
loval word and lend a helping hand
whenever the occasion presepts itself.
Let the confidence you feel in your
ddelity as a citizen be put into your
assertions conceruing the fair; stim
ulate its weakness with your strength
mind atd pocker book, and make it a
defttite purpose instead of a wavering
Clanse. Why, the reports from our
fairs go front end to end of the State,
to say the least, and either publish our
success or our failure attd decay. T'lhett,
the social aspect of the lair is such a
happy one., lielalives and friends who
have not rtet lor nouths find a joyful
rendezvous ntt the fair grounds. They
Wake new arquaiutances, renew old
qnes, and live in the brighter waves of
life for a few days, throwing care to
the winds. Tired families with their
equally worn wives, mothers, sisters
Lad children, to whom outings are
tlinse of deep mtoment, atnd few and
far between, make a special dispeusa
lion in favor of the fair, and journey
hereto with glad anticipations. They
return homre refreshed in body and
mind, with something new to talk and
thlnk about, which is a delightful
break in the monotony. It adds a zest
to life in the country, carries trade to
town, and contributes generally to the
intereqt of living in the pariah.
It is too bad indeed that the rumor
was ever allowed to go fortb that the
people of East Carroll lacked iuterest
ib her fair; and we must emphatically
spread a denial of this abroad, attd
the bees way to do it is to make the
azit one such an unmitigated success

peration hknd assslatance-mentially,
bhystcally and financially of the- citi
tetis of East Carroll, or they too will
lose hiterest in a thing to which seem
inugly, no interest attaches.
It would be a good idea, I think, for
the AssoeitiOti to appoint a travelling
detlktate to represent the fair. Let
him start out early next spring and go
it.o ihe ho:me of the people: Let
him iospire the ,farmer to breed attnd
