One of the main features was the country store, supervised and run by members of the local Elks' Lodge. Articles of various description, ninging from chickens, ducks and country , hams to cut glass tableware were contributed" to the store by friends from the city and county and all have found a ready demand.

'The Board of Town trustees accepted the full payment for licen ses and the salon men are within their legal rights, it seems.
