Columbia's Business Suspended This
Afternoon Recausc of Fair.
That Columbia loves a good fair is
shown by the fact that business is
practically suspended during fair
week and shoppers must make their
purchnsfcs in the naming because
merchants close up shop and take in
the fair in the afternoon. To a stran
ger the down town district resembles
a tropical city where every one takes
a siesta during the hot part of the
day, for practically every store Is
closed for the afternoon.
This afternoon the courthouse be
came quiet. The usual after-election
post mortcms and predictions were
postponed and practically the entire
force went to the fair. Eery office
was closed at 1 o'clock to give the
clerks and officers a half day off to
"play the ponies."
