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.
