Bang! Zip! 3loomi1! These are not
German bullets but the signals for the
big Laurens county fair which is to be
be pulled off Friday of this week. Pre
parations are complete for the annual
exhibition of the county's best. From
all reports the people aro coming and
are going to bring theIr exhibits with
thetm or seuid them the day before. The
premium lists were scattered over the i
county last week and this week Sec
retary Power will find his hands full

prize horses, cows, pigs, sheep. goats, I
wheat, corn, oats, pea vines, mules,
dogs. cats, pigeons, alfalfa, chickens, i

center-pleces, pickles, pies, candies,
potatoes, cot-(Who said cotton?), fast I

That Foot Hall Vaum.
Before going any further, IL will be
best right now, right. off the bat, to 1
straighten out that matter of the foot
ball game. The Impression has gone
out that the foot ball gamo is going
to be a part of the fair itself and that
an entrailce fee will -be charged at
the entrance to the fair grounds. 'This
Is far from correct. The football ga;me
is an Institution apart and to itself in ]
the lower end of the Garlington mea
dow, In a section never before devoted
to the fair. It is true that an admis
sion fee will be charged to It. but It
has nothing to (1o with the fair itself.
Entrance to the fair grounds is free. j
MIho football game is going to be I
played, alright, alright, and it is ex
pected to be a good one, too, and, fur
ther. anybody who wants to see it cani
do so, but (1o not get the impression
that it is connected with the fair it

The School Floats.
As is usual on such occasions, the
supervisor of schools is arranging for
an exhibit by the county schools in
theo way of pageant, entitled "Uncle
Sam's lteview!"~ This Is expected to
be one of the most attractive features,
