NEW FENCE ERECTED.
Boys Will Have to Limit Free Visit
to Fair to Opening Day.
Boys intent upon gaining stolen ac
cess into the Minnesota State Fair,
September 6 to 11, will find the trick
extremely difficult, as a new fence is
being erected around a large part of
the grounds. This is not liable to
work much hardship upon them, how
ever, as all children are to be ad
mitted free on the opening day, when
a record attendance is anticipated.
The largest attendance ever obtained
on the first day was in 1912, when 100,-
792 persons, the largest daily attend
ance ever obtained by any fair in
America, passed the turnstiles.
