The Holly Fair.
; The citizens of Holly muy well feel j
proud of the showing which they '
made ut the fair lust Thursday uud
Friday. 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

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

an unconscious condition until the
following day, but we nre glad to
