THE FLORIDA PARISHES FAIR
AT HAMMOND.
President Wm. L. Houlton, of the
Florida Parishes Fair, announc.'s
that everything will be in readiness
for the opening of the Florida Par
ishes Fair at Hammond, Monday,
October 24th, and judging by 'the'
program advertised in another part
of this paper, it will be a fair of more
than district proportions. The en
tertainment program offers such a
variety that it provides something of
interest to everybody. This program'
is better than some fairs are offer
ing which charge 75 cents admission,
and when one remembers that it can
all be seen for 50 cents, it comes
near making good the claim of Man
ager Mort h. Bixler, who says that
it is the biggest show for the least
money that this section has ever
seen.
One of the most interesting fea
tures of the fair, in the opinion of
the management, will be the Com
munity Exhibits, ,which have result
ed from the Community Fairs held
in Tangipahoa and St.. Helena par
islres. These include Greensburg,
Montpelier, Oakland, New Zion,
Kentwood, Preston, Spring Creek,
Chesgrough, Scanlon and Loranger,
with Roseland, Ponchatoula, Robert
and Independence to hear from.
