- The weather last week was jnst the
kind to induce a large attendance at
the Fair, especially on the last two
days. Financially the Fair was a suc
cess, the receipts exceeding those of
any preceding year, except the last
which was far above the average. We
are glad to be able" to make this an
nouncement, as the Board have in
curred many expenses in fitting up a
Floral Hall, which is a credit to the
Society, and improving the
ring.: - : , v, '.-.. .. .
- We regret .that we cannot speak of
the displays' in the different depart
ments in the same flattering terms as
the entries, especially in the stock de
partments,-being far below the aver
age. This may be accounted for by
the very unfavorable season we have
had, which -so discouraged the farm
ergthat they Aid not feel disposed to
take tho usual interest in the Fair.
We trust that next year all will come
forward and again, place our Fair
high in tho list of County Fairs of the
State. It is a notorious fact that while
many of the Agricultural Societies of
tho Stale have been compelled to sus
pend, that of Preble county has stead
ily improved.; The attendance at the
Fair just closed shows that the inter
est in our county still continues, and
that the falling off of entries is owing
to the, reason we have given. We
have not room to make special notice
of the different departments, but the
display in- some of them was really
very good, especially in tne depart
ment of Domestic 'Manufactures, and
had the new building been well ad
vertised the display would have been
still better. . . ;"-,
. Considerable dissatisfaction mani
fested itself on account of the charg
ing of ladies. Now if ourv readers
will reflect for a moment they will see
that it is right . Many of the depart
ments must be kept up by the ladies,
and few of them exhibit with the real
hope of pecuniary reward, yet they
are charged for making entries, aud
it thus happens that, those who assist
in making the" Fair a Buccess are
charged for it, while those who do not
are admitted free, thus encouraging
ladies not to assist - -
