THE si ?i ESS OF THE lAli: The 10th annual fair of the Ri pahannock Valley Agricultural n Mechanical Society lias just clou mu? the most pessimistic of our p pit- cannot pronounce it other that great encres*. In many of its i piirtiiii'iits it surpassed previous ' liiltitions and certainly in the nn baf of persons in at tendance it s passed any previous fair liekl by t society. It is gratifying to km that the people of this communi continue t?> take an active inten in the fair. They enjoy tti?- exhibi they enjoy the racing; tliey enjoy t balloon ascension, and above ; they enjoy the social intereour On the second day ?>f t!i?> fair was estimated that about 8,0 people were present, and ?hi!?' eve one seemed to be enjoying the <>??? sinn there was practically no ?1 order or rowdyism. The racing m probably not up to the previo standards, owing to the small nu ber of horses entered in the vario events, on account of which a nui 1st of tli?' races were declared off, I? in most every event the finishes wi close and exciting. The exhibits the ladies' department were up the usual high standar?!, as W? those of the stock department, wh the exhibitions in the farm produ department probably f?-ll a liti short of some previous recorda T (toultrv exhibit far surpassed tin of any previous fair, and numbers persons from outside the State, wl have seen large poultry exhibits other States,expressed theopiuii that it was equal to any they hi sean anywhere. We congratulate tl management apon the su tin? fair. It is a great iiistituti? for this section of Virginia.
