IT MAY BE REVIVED HERE Members of Association not Discour aged But Have Other Interests. Wayne comity is now" without a fair association. Worl has been .re ceived from Ilagerstown to the ef fect that the Wayne County Fair Association will not give another fair. The members are not 'discour aged, but fhey have other matters demanding their attention, and un less something is done toward form ing a new company to take its place, there will-1e no fairs at Ilagerstown in the future. ' ; Richmond men who have attempt ed to form an organization for a fair in Richmond have always been con fronted with the argument that so long as there is ' one fair association in the country it would be useless to attempt to give , another one. The fact that the Ilagerstown association has decided to throw up the sponge may result in the Richmond project being revived. The Ilagerstown Ex ponent, in speaking of the affair, there, says: I For . the information of those who have made inquiry as to what will probably be done in the way of hold ing another Ilagerstown fair, we have authority to say that the pres ent board, as a whole, have no desire to tiold, and have no intention of holding another fair. Most of them have been working in the fair busi ness for some time, and want a. rest from further work in that line, but would like to see the fair go on. The lease on the fair grounds expires next March. Five years ago the asso ciation was $1,100 -in--debt and now.j tne ueot is less man rouv. j.ue uuiiu ings are worth more than the debt, and if a new association does not take the fair and continue, the build ings will be sold to cancel the debt.
