M MONTANA STATE FAIR WILL BE BEST EXHIBITION OF MANY YEARS Racing Program Will be Big Attraction This Year. Thirty Counties Will Enter Products to Compete For Collective Prizes, Helena, August 31.—The Montana State Fair which is to be held at Hele na, September 7 to 12, inclusive, under the auspices of Lewis & Clark county and the Helena Commercial Club, is off to a splendid start. A program of races, excelling any thing in the past, is also under way with some of the horses already on the ground and in training for the events. The schedule includes five running , . , races every day and the presence of L. J. Rose, presiding judge at the Tia Juana Track, at the grounds to judge the Montana races, as well as the pres ence of-Jockey Freddie Hicks form erly of Helena, and who has recently ridden with considerable success on the tracks of Florida and Kentucky _ will add a thrill to the racing pro gram. Enthusiasm over the coming races is growing daily and owners of .splendid strings are negotiating with i the management for participation in the events. All indications are that fans will be treated to races such as they have not witnessed in many year. The Butte Mines Band, well known all over the western part of the United States and a prize winner in national musical contests will daily dispense its festive airs to thrill the crowds and quicken the pulse of the racing pro gram. No other band in the state can compare with the Butte Mines Band and the State Pair management is fortunate in obtaining its services. Night shows, including high-class vaudeville and miscellaneous enteratin 1 ment features, as well as spectacular fireworks under the Therele Duffield management, will add a glamour and zest to the week's festivities. 1 The first day of the fair being Labor ! Day promises a record-breaking crowd not only from Helena, but from Butte, ' Anaconda, Great Falls and other neighboring cities. The Deer Lodge Kiwanians, having fallen in with the spirit,of "A Fair Like We Used To Have, agreed to cancel their Labor Day celebration and instead are go ing to bring their surplus pep and enthusiasm to the Capital City to help swell the big six day entertainment now off to such a splendid start. County Collective Exhibits That there will be keen competition for county collective exhibit prizes is evidenced by the interest already being displayed by the various coun ties. This feature of the Fair, which was virtually "dead" for many years, has been revived with surprising ac tivity. Over 80 counties have up to date reserved space for their exhibits and the number is daily increasing. There will be ample room provided for all counties wishing to enter. »300 j is the first prize offered for these ex hibits, »200 the second; and »100 the • , third. A total of »600 will be given for the best display of grains and grasses, including shelled grain and miscellan 1 eous samples, which will undoubtedly stimulate interest among farmers to j make individual entries. Particularly interesting will be the exhibit of the International Harvester Company this year. They will have on display an unusually varied collec tion of modern, time and labor-saving machines, many of which will be dem onstrated on the grounds. Judging from the number of re quests being received for premium lists in other lines of entry, such as livestock, fruit, vegetables, dairy pro ducts, fine arts, needlework, culinary, etc., there is a stimulation of inter est manifest which eclipses that of any previous year, and which may be at-, tributed to the reaction of the handi-1 cap under which the State Fair was placed this year and the people of Lewis t Clark county and Helena go ing ahead in spite of it all with indom itable vim and courage. The reaction has spread throughout the state and it now looks as though all Montana will be on hand in Helena during the week of September 7 to 12. BRIDGE LUNCHEON AT RICHEL LODGE Mm.
