A novelty in the exterior equip ment of the ‘‘Grassland,” the North Wisconsin Farmers’ association car, has been planned by Secretary Fair all, which all who have had it ex plained to them expect to prove a very valuable feature, A map of North Wisconsin seven by 15 leet will be placed at one end on each side ot the car. This map will not only be in colors, gotten up in attractive style, but will give a great many statistics as to the in dustrial eonditijos, business, popu ! lation and other points valuable in | turning the attention of settlers to j this section. As far east as the Michigan penin sula and as far west as the iron i ranges of Minnesota will be show n j outside of the state.

No difficulty has been experienced in the move to raise about $1,200 ex tra for the transportation of the car which will have to be paid for as a result of the new rate law. Inas much as the car will thus be “taken out of the mendicant class,” as Sec retary Fairall puts it, by paying in stead of asking for free hauling, better time can be made and the | territory covered better. By this time President Palma has probably made up his mind that he will have no third term in his, ; either, A couple of democrats running for Congress in nondoubtful dis ! tricts, have examined their soul leather and concluded that they are not in trim for running. $250 buys a five room house with two lots, well located.

Promises to be one of the best in the history of Bayfield County. The Bayfield county fair will be held at Iron River October 2d, 3d, and 4th, and indications are that it will be one of the best in the history of the county. More interest is being taken in the matter this year than ever before and the exhibits will be larger and better. A number of fast horses will compete for the various prizes, and this depart ment promises to be exceeding ly interesting. The citizens of Washburn ought to take an in terest in this annual fair, and should show by their attendance that they are anxious to make it a success. Let all who possibly can, attend the fair this year. You citizens who are tax payers have helped the fair this year, and for that reason you ought to feel interested. In a recent issue the Iron River Pioneer has the following to say: President Hobbs and Secre tary Morris, of the Bayfield County Fair Association, have already received assurances which justify them in announcing that as fine a string of horses will be here to the fair as were ever gotten together in race meet in this part of the north west. The Bayfield County Fair dates are Oct. 2 3-4, following the Ashland meet. Practically all the horses of the Northern Wisconsin and Michigan racing circuit will be here, as well as a number from Northern Minne sota. After taking in the races here the horses will be shipped to Hibbing, as the races up there occur on the following week. In former years some difficul ty was experienced in getting horses, but this year it seems to be quite different, and there is no donbt but there will be at least a dozen here Fair week. Tbe Iron River track is pro nounced by horsemen as being the best half mill track in the circuit. The management of the fair however, are not entirely satisfied and will make some re pairs with a view of making it better still. The premium list, now out. of fers $2500 for exhibits and trials of speed. It has been material ly enlarged this year to keep pace with the advance in agriculture. Nearly every department has come in for more premiums, the department of horticulture parti cular coming in for a marked enlargement. With the increase in premiums offered will natural ly come an increase in the ex pence to meet them. The fair management has received assur ances of substantial support from local business men. They figure they will need at least S3OO more to feel safe and they should have -no trouble in gathering up that much from among the friends of tbe fair.
