W. Jennings should receive the big end of the credit for thi winning, as he onlv helped put it up, and Jennings work ed f.-r weeks gathering the exhibit, and preparing it for the fair. That the West Texas Counties scored so heavily in the fair th year is ac.oiinted for iti the fait that thjv went alter the premium this vear with more purpose than ever liefor. Heretofore, the greater ni-mber of the count le went to the fa.r mostly for advertising purposes, and made no big effort to bo hih in the list of premium. This year, however, it seems that nil the counties went after the premiums, and West Texas not only f'lted the wore card carefully, but bad the tpiality also.
