THE DISTRICT FAIR.
For the Farmer. Gardner, Merchant
For the purpose of having a full
and complete display of grains,
fruits, and vegetables, flora, dairy
products, manufactures and merchan
dise of Southeast Missouri, the Board
of Directors of the Southeastern Dis
trict Agricultural Society have
changed the time of holding the annu
al Fair from the second week in Octo
ber to the second week in September,
a time when the products of the field,
oi-i-hard. vinevard and garden are
fully matured and in prime condidion.
This change has been made for your
benefit, and to give vim an opportu
nity to show to Jthe hundreds of
strangers fr jm all parts of this great
valley who aiv daily landing at our
wharf, what our section of this conn
try can do.
The Directors your servant: now
look to you for a helping hand to
make our coming r air the grandest
and liest ever held in the State south
of St. Louis.
It is your Fair. The manageiiieut
can only prepare the ground etc. to
receive and display your -exhibits.
It remains for you to till them up.
Will you do it? Then go to work,
each one animated to beat his neigh
bor, make your selections of grain,
fruits, flowers, vegetables, dairy pro
ducts and domestic articles of all
kinds and make Floral Hall look liet
ter than ever liefore.
Let our merchants, manufacturers,
artists and housewives, in fact every
body lend a helping hand. Stir up
your local pride and show our neigh
bors what Southeast Missouri can Uo.
We have the country, the products
and the people. Let us take a pride
in showing them to strangers.
Floral Hall will be under the-. man
agement of Mr. Joyce and able as
sistants, who will spa iv no pains to
pku-e your exhibits so as to display
them to the liest advantage.

The camp meeting of the Saints of
Goil commenced Sunday oil Hoeller's
bluff in Scott county. The meeting is
to last as long as the people turn out
to make it interesting. There is a full
force of preachers on hand and they
take turn about at preaching. One
preaches, then they take a recess and
other things, then some fellow blows a
horn which is a signal for another
preacher to mount the .-tump, and so
the meeting goes bravely on. Pro
visions and other necessaries of ramp
meeting life are to In- had on the
Walked oil' the Train.
Tony Heiserer. of near KeL-o. went
to St. Louis on the Sunday railroad

was a little under the weather from
the effects of tjo many glasses of
lieer and when he reached the platform
of the car he deliberately walked otf.
The train was stopped and Heiserer
picked up and placed in a car. His
head was badly bruised up. but he
was not seriouslv nurt.

ny sold to Mrs. M. H. G. Houck to
raise money to build a railroad to
Lakeville. The land has lieen in po
session of Mrs. Houck and those under
whom she claims for twenty-eight
years, and the title on that ground,
of posession alone ought to lie good
enough to keep off thieves.
