PIO.CHE RECORD ESTABLISHED SEPT. 17. U70. SINGLE COPIES II CENTS- FHE SUCCESSFUL CAUENTE FAIR While the heavy rains last week Interfered with the fair program. ev erybody pronounced Lincoln county's third annual talr a success. A large crowd of visitors attended and every hotel and rooming house was full to overflowing. Besides each day car loads of people from nearby towns drove in for the sports and to see the exhibits and returned to their homes after the dance. The Lincoln county high school band furnished excellent music dur ing the entire fair. The boys are to be congratulated on the advancement they are making. The music was appreciated by all. Two large tents held the exhibits. The agricultural display was under the supervision of Mrs. H. W. Un der hill. The tent was decorated with bunting and the exhibits attractively arranged. Mrs. E. N. Mitchell. Mrs. C. I. Himstreet. Mrs. John Hanlon and Mrs. J. Kearns had charge of the tent in which the needlework was exhibited. The Catholic ladies had a booth in this tent, where they sold aprons, caps and crocheted yokes. A striking feature of the needlework display was the excellent work done by the older women. Mrs. J. Yoach am had a pillow top she crocheted in her seventy-fifth year. Mrs. C. Warn, ing, also over 70. had nineteen pieces of crocheted articles, including pillow tops, table covers, pillow cases, etc. Mrs. A. H. Norrls of Las Vegas and Mrs. Elmer Mlddleton of Pioche judged the needlework. Caliente carried off the honors in the ball games, defeating Alamo on Thursday In the qualifying game for the big prize. Friday Fay defeated Pioche In a spirited contest and on Saturday Caliente trounced Fay for the championship and a prize of $100. This latter contest entitles Caliente to the championship of the county. On Friday, the day set for the Trip Around the World, it was im possible for the Pioche ball team to reach Caliente in time to start the game with Fay until 4 o'clock. As a result the game lasted until dark and few had an opportunity to take in the trip. Those who were fortu nate enough had the time of their lives. . The first country visited was China. Lester Burt's home on Den ton Heights was decorated like a Chinese temple. An altar where punk and incense were burned be fore a yellow dragon, which moved its head from side to side in a life like manner, gave a weird atmos phere to the temple, which was dim ly lighted with Chinese lanterns. The room adjoining was furnished as an '- pium den, and guests crawled in to find the beautiful opium fiends sleep ing soundly through all the beating of the tomtoms and singing of the Chinese entertainer, impersonated by Isabella Olson, who sang "Red Lantern" and "Chong," accompanied by Miss Sarah ImObersteg at the piano and Mrs. C. I. Himstreet with the tomtoms. Both ladies were in Oriental costume, as was Mrs. Wilkes, the hostess, who welcomed the guests and made them feel at home. Nellie Riding and Florence Langford, in pretty yellow and black costumes, poured pekoe tea in china cups and served Chinese wafers. Dr. Shier's old drugstore was fitted up as Ireland, and there Mrs. Lloyd Denton. Mrs. P. W. Duffln and Mrs. E. N. Mitchell, in typical Irish re galia, peddled the blarney or swung the shillalah, just as the notion struck them. The reporter would like to say they looked charming, but he must be truthful. Mrs. Duffin's nose and Mrs. Mitchell's hair made a Bolshevik flag look pale. Alice Davln sang several sweet Irish bal lads, accompanied by Miss Edna Mil sap. The Butterfly Kandy Korner was transformed into Hawaii for the oc casion. Each booth was converted into a bower of cattails and tamarac. Yellow crepe paper festooning and varda and vards of lace, potted palms, parrots and canary birds all helped to make the euests forget the storm outside. Mr. and Mrs. LaRue Duffin, in white costumes, served tne re treshments, and Mrs. Lucille Ryan. who presided at the piano, was also dressed in white. Lee Welker ntavnri hula dances on the saxaphone and Mrs. Bob Rodgers and Dick David danced the hula. It was the first time in the history of the But- terflv that the hula had been aancea there, but that it was successful was evident from the fact that it was im possible to get standing room on the sidewalk outside, When imck iou off his wig an hour later, near an upstairs window, a voice was heard . from the street saying. In disappoint ed tones; "Aw. he's a man.' The girts from China dropped in on their way home and Bang a son ai ono lulu. Saturday afternoon's circus was a nrrnnm from ntart to finish. The parade started in the rain, but the worst kind of storm could not keep people Inside. The bareback riders came flrat Sheriff William Culver well, in a flashv ballet dress of the brightest red and beautiful chestnut curls, and Otto Olson, a petite blonde in a darinc dress lust a few shades brighter than "her hair." Deputies kept the men behind the ropes, with , tome contusion, but immediately t'- had to turn their attention to the i ladies when the bathing girls came Into view. The Judges, all ladles from out of town, afterward awarded the prize to Susie Barton, but betting was good, as thev were "some chickens, no foolin'." The names of these home-wreckers were Susie Barton, Genevieve Salt. Clarabella Denton, Hortense Hodder, Oeraldlne Him Btreet, Wllhelml Prout and her sis ter Pauline. Tom Pippin, In semi-Indian outfit, drove a was-onload of Piute sauaws, with their chief, Hans Olson. All had on holiday clothes and it was Combined Metals Drifting to Fissure The Combined Metals. Inc.. this week commenced drifting on the 535- toot level to catch the richer fissure ore opened up recently on the sub level. This ore was demonstrated at a depth of 485 feet and was wider and richer in the bottom than else where in the sub-level workings. A continuation of the drift from the Amalgamated Pioche No. 1 shaft is expected to strike this oreshoot with in a distance of twenty feet. Superintendent Earl T. God be re ports that the regular shipments from the bedded ore on the 400 level will be maintained while the richer fissure ores are being developed be low. The Combined Metals has been op erating steadily for the last three years and the total production dur ing that period reflects great credit to Manager E. H. Snyder and his as sociates.

The first is for cooperative countywlde effort, the second for cooperative community effort. The scope of the work embraced within the farm bureau plan covers anything which will promote the ru ral welfare of the county as a whole, or ot any community, that is feasible to accomplish through organized community effort cooperating with state, federal and university agen cies. It has proved the most prac tical plan yet discovered for develop ing sustained public-spirited team work by the people ot a. county or community. In general it covers problems af fecting (a) agriculture, livestock, reclamation, animal disease control, rodent control, marketing, drainage. demonstrations ot new, crops, farm management, range problems, etc.. from the standpoint of the farmer and stockman; (b) all problems af fecting the efficiency, comfort and happiness of rural homes, from the, standpoint of rural women, and (c), all problems Involving the better ment of rural community and social life and conditions. In addition, It embraces (d) boys' and girls' club work for the training ot young peo ple in agriculture, home economics and home-making. Thus the farm bureau coordinates a wide field or community endeavor. Results are achieved progressively by undertaking a few definite proj ects each year. Selecting those most urgent and feasible of accomplish ment, so that at. the end ot the year definite results may be reported. Ic should be viewed as a work covering many years, and not one year.
