For a towu aud farming community only three yours old, we do uot believe it could huve been equalled uny where else iu the couu try. The ussociatiou only took honl of the matter about two mouths ago, but the energetic aud thorough man uer in which they did their wora, proves that the members were hust lers of the most approved style. Over one thousand visitors from the county aud outside points visited Holly during the two days, and all were enthusiastic in praise of the fair and the town aud its people. The > largest delegation went from Lamar, I anil many of our citizeus went down the first day and remained over until the close. ' The displays would have done i credit to an old settled farming com i muuity. The agricultural display, including all kinds of grains, alfalfa, melons, vegetables, fruits, honey, etc., I without end, filled the big barn of the Amity company to overflowing, I and was the chief attraction, it was so tine that Fred Mold, who of coarse i had a bunch of laud seekers on baud, hail no trouble iu selling land to all i of them. In the stock display the sheep and hogs were the especial attraction be ing greatly admired by all visitors, but strange to say the cattle, of which the country ought to make the best display, was nothing to brag about. The poultry exhibit was excellent, and the horses fair. But the chief pride of Prowers county is the lurge and healthy stock of babies, and this wus the most pop ular exhibit of all. The three unfor tunate men, who had to choose the handsomest baby out of the twenty or thirty lusty youngsters on exhibi tion, were wise iu taking to the woods immediately. There was a long aud interesting program of races for each day, and it was much enjoyed by the specta tors. The two ruces in which the most interest was centered was the , cowgirl race, which was contested by seven cowgirls, and the five mile re lay cowboy race The track was in splendid condition. The only accident which happened was in the cowgirl race Misslugham from Amityville was thrown from her horse on her head, aud remained iu an unconscious condition until the following day, but we nre glad to state is now reported to be all right again. The Holly people say they wish to make the fair a county one, aud want Lamar to have it next year, and the i proposition is now up to our people to accept or turn down.
