Successful Fair.
The first annual Leeaburg-Hlghland
Fair was held last week and was a
complete success In every way.
The new grounds are beautiful and
everything was In readiness for the
entertainment of the big crowds.
Thursday, as Is customary .with
county fairs, was the big day, the
crowd being variously estlmated'from
8,000 to 11,000.
The races were close-and exciting,
furnishing fine entertalnme.nl for
those who love the sport of kings.
The displays in the various depart
ments surpassed the expectations of
the most enthusiastic. Every depart
ment was full to overflowing ; fine
horses; fine cattle; fine hogs ; the best
I of all kinds of farm produce ; beautiful
needle work ; delicious bread, cakes,
pies, canned goods, etc.
The promoters of the fair are to be
congratulated on its success. Work,

John Dawson May Have Meant to Be
Neighborly, or Perhaps He Thought
He Had Bargain.
Sam Showaltor was having a sale of
his surplus Btock. To start the sale,
ho led out a milk cow, one of the best
of his herJ. and told the auctioneer
she was four years old. John Dawson,
a long, leathery, weather-beaten fel
low with a shrewd eye, bid In the
cow. He gave Showalter a check for
the amount, and said he would come
for the cow the next day.
"I tell you, John," Bald Showalter,
when Dawson rode up the next morn
ing to lead home his purchase, "I
made a mistake yesterday. I said that
cow was only four years old; but when
I talked It over with the old woman
last night, I remembered that she Is
eight years old. It was another cow
altogether that I had In mind. "
"I didn't want to let a mistake like
that go with a neighbor," continued
Showalter, whose word was not usual
ly accepted as entirely dependable
In the community, "so I thought the
fair thing to do waB to tell you, and
Just let you take your check back, and
I'll keep the cow."
Dawson squinted his eye approvingly
nt the cow she had every mark of
a .good milker and then looked ap
pralslngly at Showalter.
"Well, Sam," ho said, "turn about Is
fair play. You made a mistake yes
terday; I'll make one today, and Just
keep the oow." Youth's Companion.
Lizard Canary Has Well Been Given
Nickname of "Mayor of Birdie
The lizard canary Is one of the most
unique varieties In the cage-bird
world. Its beautiful ground color, so
nicely ticked, and pretty little "cap"
make It a thing of beauty and a joy
forever. It Is, however, the only va
riety that moults out Its plumage at
the end of the first season. By this it
is meant that, although the bird pos
sesses so beautiful a coat for the first
year, the plumago disappears alto
gether at the second moult.
Thus It Is a show bird for only one
1. e., the first season, and this Is
considered a drawback to its popular
ity. On account of Its wearing such
gay apparel for one year and then put
ting It aside, the lizard has been aptly
termed "Mayor of Birdie Land."
The little story oonnected with the
lizard and a mayor is well worth re
peating. It was a well-known bird-
cage show being opened by Sir Wil
liam Treloar, then lord mayor of 'Lon
don, that this celebrity, In a few well
chosen words, likened himself unto
the lizard canary, many grand speci
mens of which were on view at the
show. The stately robeB which he
wore were only for a season; such is
the caBe with the lizard.
Speedy Turtle.
"Look here, waiter I" shouted the an
gry, hungry guest at the restaurant.
"Yessuh, yessuhl" answered the
waiter, who appeared to be all out of
breath, as from some sort of violent
"I ordered that turtle soup an hour
ago and ypu haven't brought It yet."
"Yessuh, nosuhl Ah'm plum sorry,
suh, but it Jest couldn't be helped.
When Ah done cotched dat turtle an'
was a-takin' him ta de cook he done
slipped outah mah hands an' ran out
de back doah an' up de alley. YesBUh,
Ah had to chase him foah blocks befo'
Ah could catch him. Yessuh, he'll be
ready In er minute."
When Tailor Lost Customer.
Biggs, previously a comparatively
poor man, had come Into a big for
tune, so he set about doing things in
grand style. Ordering some clothes!
from his tailor, he told him he would
send round his coachman to be meas
ured for a llvory.
The tailor scented , good business,
and, thinking his customer would not
be proof against flattery, he said:
"Don't you think, sir, It would ba
nice to have your crest stamped on
your coachman's buttons?"
"Crest!" roared the indignant Mr.
Blggs. What do I or my servants
want witn crests 7 D'ye take us for a
