The Attendance At The Fair
Is Quite Lorgc
Wednesday, the second day o tho
Knox county fair was far better in all
respects than Tuesday, tho opening
day. Everything having been placed
in readiness for ovcry kind of amuse
ment and pastimes, there wns nothing
lacking to make It a big day. Tho
weather was grand from morning un
til night, neither too hot nor too cold.
Early Wednesday morning a stream of
vehicles poured Into tho paik, the rigs
being loaded with expectant fair go
ers from the iural districts. These
people were not disappointed In any
way as everything which interests tho
farmer is to ho seen in abundance at
- Tho exhibition and displays spoken
of on tho ilrst or opening day, seemed
to have giown with wonderful speod
until almost every inch of space avail
able is occupied by farm products,
farm implements, manufactured goods
and everything which goes to make
up a first class county fair. The
amusement places were running in
full blast, tho merry-go-round and the
"wave," being tho principal pleasures
for the children.
Although it Is practically lmpossi
i. bio to state tho actual number of peo
ple present during Wednesday, it is
safe to say that two thousand were in
attendance in tho afternoon. Noth
ing of a disorderly nature occurred
during tho day, thero being no flghtB
or unpleasant scenes and every one
seemed to move in accord with the
other and goodfellowshlp reigned dur
ing the day.
Beyond a doubt, tho most interest
ing and pleasing event during tho
day was the horse racing. Tho track
was Just a trifle heavy owing to the
recent heavy rains, but the work
which had been dono on tho track
placed It in a hotter condition and
some fast heats weie made In both
rades. The 2:14 pace was the fast
race of the afternoon and a great
amount of interest vas shown
throughout every heat.
Tho second race was longer drawn
out as tho heats weie split and it was
necessary to go Ave heats in order to
decldo tho winner.
Tho score and summary of tho two
races was as follows:

Do you know why the SUPERIOR GRAIN DRILIr
is generally conceded to be the most popular of all
farm machines'? Listen Because it has the most
accurate feed made; Because it is built strong, runs
light and has the fewest parts to wear out. Because
it now has a force feed grass seeder that will not
clog. Because for 40 years the experimental depart
ment of the Superior Drill Co. have been trying out
every new device used on grain drills, discarding
those that were not practical and retaining only
those of genuine merit. Remember this when you
buy a drill. Many features are used on other drills
for talking points only. Don't be misled but buy a
Superior and you'll get the best.
