Breaks All Records
Thursday Saw the Largest Crowds the Grounds Ever
Held. Gate Receipts Were Hundreds, of Dollars
More Than Any Previous Day Known
To The Management.
More Concessions Were Sold at $1.50 per foot Than Were Ever
Disposed of Before. Grandstands Filled To Capacity and Many
Refused Admittance. Grounds Packed With Cars, Fully Half
as Many Lined the Roads Outside. Friday Morning Found the
Treasurer In Possession of More Money Than the Total Receipts
of Last Year With the Day's Collection To Be Added. Exhibit
. Barns Filled. Premiums Awarded.
This year's Fair will be recorded in
our county's history as one of the most
important of Northern Michigan's Fairs
every branch of which shows planning
and supervision. It is no little task to
arrange entertainment for the people
of a county and to make them feel
amply repaid for the effort and money
spent. Much credit is due Dwight L.
Wilson and his enthusiastic superin
tendents for the successful way in
which they have handled every detail,
and given to us five days of recreation,
competition and socialization. Enthu
siastic remarks are heard on every
corner. Now and then a kicker slipped
through the gate. No such bunch ever
gathered without a few kickers getting
in, but they would have to be hard
shelled indeed if they could not find
something that satisfied them.
Monday was a busy day getting ex
hibits in' place. No admission was
charged. Everyone got ready to start
Tuesday off right. The concessions
were placed, Merry-Go-Round set up,
the Pony-Go-Round staked, etc.
Tuesday the fair was in full swing
with its band, orchestras, ball games
horse races, skin games and red hots.
Every minute of it filled. The eve
ning foutid the music just the kind to
liven the spirits and the packed room
showed how it was appreciated.
Vty dnesday saw a good many of the
fortwer visitors and friends with them.
Charlevoix made a special effort to be
represented on that day.
Thursday was school day. Buses
brought children by the school load
with teachers in charge. Parents
brought boys and girls as an excuse
for coming themselves. So many were
there that every building and passage
way was jammed. Marshals found it
difficult to keep the crowds out of
Friday the big day for the finals of
both the races and the ball games saw
another rush for first places on the
grand stands. The afternoon was
much better attended than the fore
noon. Those interested in real sports
got their moneys worth.
tions and Music
Each performance of the special
features were watched by an attentive
audience. Tumbling seemed play to
the Stciner Trio. The fat man and the
faftest man kept the interest of the
crowd through their acts. Their night
performanee drew as many as the day.
Every part of Martin and Gennet's
Foolish Ford needed repairs when they
were through with it. Their barrel
stunts were also mirth provokers.
The music furnished by the Kalama
zoo Orchestra was of the type one likes
to hear. It had quality and all the
rest that set perfectly good feet tingl
ing. The players were not only apt
musicians, but refined and congenial.
No mistake would be made in engag
ing them for another year.
East Jordan's New Metropole Or
chestra was on the job every afternoon
and helped in supplying the "hops" to
the.yowd. The county is fortunate in
haWug so capable a bunch of musicians
at their command.
Boyne City's Band furnished the mu
sic for the special acts and general en
tertainment of the people. Each num
ber was well rendered and appreciated.

In spite of the $1.50 asked per foot,
more concession ground vas sold than
any previous year. Midway was lined
with people both day and night carry
ing kewpies, blankets, ticklers and
hamburgers. The chance gamers had
their webs all made and lucky was the
man who passed the last of them with
even a hole in his pocket.
The largest display on the ground
was found in the Educational building,
most of which arrived on Saturday.
The systematic arrangement of every
detail reflects the ability of Miss Stew
art as an organizer. Anyone familiar
with such work knows that prepara
tions for a fair exhibit begin in Sept
ember and continue throuhout the
year. Last spring, contests were held
in each of the townships, only the
winning school being allowed to exhib
it at the fair. This process of elimina
tion left only 14 rural schools repre
sented. So large was the display that
if all had responded, more wall space
would have been necessary.
The North room of the building was
occupied by the Boyne City High
school. Their exhibit was not com
plete but very neatly arranged. Char
levoix's space was the east wing,
while East Jordan staged theirs in the
west wing. The judging of the high
school was some different than last
year, a set amount being named and
deductions being made for the omiss
ion of any grade or department. This
arrangement made it posssble for each
school to receive sufficient money to
defray all expense connected with
bringing the exhibit and for its return.
The highest amount any school might
receive was seventy-five dollars. Sub
tracting the deductions the following
amounts were allowed: East Jordan
$75.00, Boyne City $50.00, Charlevoix
The rural work was divided into one
room, two room and more than two
room schools. Of the one room schools
Deer Lake took the lead. Marion, No.
5 second, and North Bay third. Sunny
side took first place and Ironton second
in the two room contest. McKinley
won over Boyne Falls in the more than
two room contest. It can be said with
out boasting that this exhibit was the
best of its kind in any of the counties
north of Grand Rapids. Some even
dared to call it better than the educa
tional exhibit at the State Fair. The
resignation of Miss Stewart just before
the fair placed her successor, A. C.
Belding in charge of this department,
and Mrs. Belding acted as his assistant.
WORK OF HEALTH
Many of the mothers of the county
appreciated the opportunity of having
their children tested by the ladies from
the State Board of Health. Some dif
ficulty in arranging for them was en
countered, but easily overcome. The
people of the community hope to see
them again next year, and to co-operate
with them in whatever arrange
ments will be necessary. We are un
able to 'obtain the exact number of
children examined, but know it to
reach the hundred mark. They had
much to say about a county nurse,
which we believe in time will be' con
sidered as necessary as the village
doctor. Here's wishing them pleasant
memories of their stay in our city.
Castor oil only tastes worse when
you try to Improve its flavor. All
grouches are like castor oil.
Some interesting reports were made
concerning the fancy work department.
Article 503 exhibited by a girl fourteen
certainly showed that young lady's
tasty ability at dressmaking. A center
piece of Irish crocheting would have
taken first prize at any fair. Fifteen
little girls from six to ten years of age
and known as the Little Light Bearers
of the Presbyterian Church brought a
spread of sixteen white blocks worked
with turkey red cotton. At the close
of the exhibit this quilt with premiums
awarded is to be given to a little crip
ple boy. Some of the finest work pre
sented was two quilts, one made by a
lady eighty-five years young, the other
one year younger. This exhibit was
well worth careful investigation.
Very few entries were made for
club work. Either few clubs were
organized or summer months dampen
ed their enthusiasm. This is a worthy
organization and deserves the best
efforts of a real organizer. This year's
prizes will no doubt be a insentive for
entries from other clubs.
Three boys (owls) Tom, Dick, and
Harry watched the poultry exhibit and
cast a longing eye at the young chicks
found' there. White Wyandottes and
White Leghorns were in the majority.
The entire display of chickens, turkeys
ducks, geese, and rabits showed care
ful selection and proper breeding.
Grains and vegetables were exhibit
ed but not in sufficient quantity to
make strong competition. The absence
of potatoes was very noticeable.
Grange work was represented by Mar:
ion, Deer Lake, and Harmony, receiv
ing prizes Jn the order given. Indi
vidual prizes were awarded Martin
Staley and Mrs. August Lew.
A good display of apples and the
later fruits were at the building on the
north side. The absence of earlier
varieties was due to the advanced con
dition of the season.
Honey, dairy products, and baked
goods could all have been placed in
one case. Each was good in quality,
but few in numbers.
Mr. Terry Barber was on deck at the'
cattle barn each day and made him
self especially agreeable to anyone
who wished to know about the stock
in his charge. Mr. R. V. White enter
ed six head of the dairy short horn
type having a record of 18000 lbs. The
result of proper breeding was manifest
in the three generations there. Larg
est of the bulls was Second General
Clay. This animal is owned by the
White Lumber Company. Several of
his daughters are famous for their milk
The only Red Polled was entered by
Orvan Gunsolus. Martin Ruhling's two
year bull drew favorable comment.
Kit Carson was the owner of Herefords
(Beef type), Holsteins were exhibited
by Behling, Tromble and the county
farm. Guernseys by Kinney and Cor
pening held the interest of the passers
by. Everyone was pleased with the
stock exhibited by Loeb Farm. It is
evident this man had the interest of
the community in mind when he plac
ed his own building on the ground and
then proceeded to fill it with the best
stock money could buy. No better
animals were ever exhibited at a coun
Frank Bird reported every stall ta
ken in the horse barn. There were
horses of all shapes and shades from
the Shetland ponies to the large draft
horses. Jack and his family from
White's farm occupied several of the
stalls on the south side. ,
Mr. Staley had to borrow from the
sheep stalls to accomodate all who
wished to enter swine. The principal
breeds were Poland China and Hamp
shire. The sheep were mostly Shrops
they being best adapted to ourlocality.

.The lure of $500.00 in prizes brought
to the Fair some of the best of 'Western
Michigan's ball players. A game for
each day furnished the amusement of
each afternoon. Rooters on both sides
of the field voiced their, approval or
disapproval of the "Ump's" decisions
in tones that could be heard for miles.
What's a fair without a ball game? But
no fair is a good fair that does not have
good games. 'Fans from the neighbor
ing counties attended the games of this
tournament as regularly as they ate
their meals. All business in the down
town section was considered of second
importance. Grand stands were filled
to capacity. The ' score board was
"proof of the Pooding."
The stage wa set for four real games.

the second, 1 in the third tad 3 in the
sixth, making a total of 1 4o 7 in Man
By this process of elimination one
final game was left to Mancelona and
Loeb Farm. Many of those who had
witnessed the games realized that Loeb
was going to work for what they got
in Friday's game. Visitors from Trav
erse City, Petoskey, Pellston, Lever

battery and line up. '
Mancelona had Babe Lawrence for
pitcher and Pete Johnson for catcher,
Chilson played first, Bouland second,

Levering were employed by the Asso

games. . j
The enthusiasm with which the races
were met was shown by the line of
anxious faces on each side of the fence
