The Fair of 1914 a Record
Breaker For Attendance.
Special Train from Bogalusa Brought Many Visitors
Buggies, Wagons, Horses and Automobies Came
From Every Section, Swelling the Number of Happy
Faces-The Town-People Heartily Thanked For Their
Cordial Welcome-Hon. W. H. Sullivan Spoke Elo
quently to the Vast Throng-Permanency of the Fair
Association Now Assured.
The fourth annual holding of a
Fait in Washington Parish thru
Thursday, Friday and Saturday
of last week, was the event of the
The biggetit crowd in attendance,
and most orderly, numbering, ac
cording to conservative estimates,
to be between 2,500 and 3,000
persons. Bogalusa sent a special
train of nearly 400 and partiopat
el. heartily in the programs of the
occasion. Thursday was Instal
lation Day when exhibitors placed
their articles, animals and pro
ducts in booths, stalls and cages
for exhibition. Friday was Edu
cational Day when the largest
attendance ever seen in the town
gave cheer to everybody. Satur
day was Dissembling Day when,
after the awards, the exhibitors
began to remove their properties.
Never before, in the history of
the town, within the recollection
of the oldest inhabitant, was
there so much hand-shaking,
so many articles exhibited, so
mapypersons made happy, so
. Jusiness done. Resolutions
were heard on every, side that
this town should permanently
organize for perpetual celebra.
tions where the resourcefulness
of the parish can be so amply
displayed and the industrious far
mere declared themselves ready
to co-operate with the merchants
in making future fairs equal if
not superior to this. Mr. Sulli
van, of Bogalusa, who kindly ac
cepted and invitation to address
the people there assembled on the
Fair Ground, dubly filled the va
cancies caused by the unavoida.
ble absence of Hon. J. B. Lan.
caster and Hon. Harry Wilson,
who had been expected to be here
as orators, by a most eloquent
specc laudatory of the achieve
ments of the Fair Association,
and commended the interested
ness and persistence of the man
agement in the face of many
odds; and heartily annouced, in
behalf of Bogalusa, that material
and enthusiastic help from the
Metropolis of the Florida Parish
es would be duly forthcoming
next year and hereafter. At this
writing we cannot do full justice
to the occasion of this Fair and
to those who labored for it. But
we can truthfully say there never
was so large a crowd with as
little complaining. The ,rair
simply went beyond all evpecta.
tions. Room was inadequate for
the exhibits; programs became
disarranged; refreshments on the
grounds gave out; but the people
kept coming and amusements
kept agoing. The grandstand
broke down with the weight of
the people seated thereon; the
babies for the show were in
abundance; mothers were pres
ent anxiously waiting 'decisions;
twins and other curiosities were
there and no accident marred the
occasiln of any day. A few days
beI'ore the Fair opened it was
foundl necessary to build a house
for the Women's Department -
this was filled to overfl,)wing.
The exhibit of artistic fabric,
drawings etc., from Bogalusa
won encomiums from everybody.
Rare specimens of handiwork and
evidences of domestic culture
were observed with in tense in
terest and delight. Live stock
department contained fine speci.
mens of excellent qualities in
kine, swine and equine, as well
of bulls and rams. The
Agricultural Department was
chocked full. Many products of
the farm were there. One ex
hibit was said to have contained
57 different articles produced on
one farm. A huge cage contain
ing an aviary and specimens of
its products occupied a conspicu
ous place attracting attention
from everybody. It germinated
thoughts of sweetness as well as
afforded opportunity for facetious
comment as, when a young man
said to his girl, whom he was es.
corting, 'did you see that honey?'
She answered shyly "yes, dear."
Then the Poultry Department,
the enoouragement of which had
brought an abundance of eggs
and chickens for the table lately,
was overstocked. Twenty-two
cages had been provided but
nearly forty were needed.
Twelve fine breeds of fowls were
on exhibition besides a triplet of
capons, the most curiou, of them
all. Finally, we were let into
the rest room, a provision made
by a lady too diffident to pro
claim the honor of instituting it,
but who,e memory will forever
be cherished because of the com.
for, it afforded the wearyt mothers
and their tired children and babes.
(The editor disclaims writing
this.) For want of space the
narrative of the Fair must be
continued until our next issue.
