Everybody in Lenora turns out and helps to en ertain the crowd. For instance, Or. Ward and S. Larrick got out nto the street and tied the rear end of their automoblies together .vith a big rope and then each ried to run away with the other, vlr. Larrick had a big Buick and Or Ward had a Ford runabout. L’hey had it nip and tuck for sev iral minutes until the Ford strip ped the differential and had to give up. On Friday they said he Ford pulled an Overland- Bill City Republican. S. Larrick spoken of in the Or acle above is a banker in the cown we came from, and he be ieves in making the people in terested in their social doings. Be is hot too nice to get out and help entertain the people, even if ‘he does get a little dirt or grease on his clothes. BURLINGTON FAIR Last Friday morning; in com- j pany with Mr. and Mrs. W. T| Hollenbaugh we went to Bur irngton to’ attend the Farmers and Stockmen’s Fair. Orj arriv- [ mg there we made R. L. Wilkin- ; son, of the Record office, a visit and found him very busy trying! to get out a daily during the fair. ' Next we went out on the street, 1 ind there we found different parties carrying banners telling about their Fair, we followed one of these fellows to find out where the Fair was, it led us to the fair grounds, and there we found three stands on the grounds all busy (setting around waiting for patrons) next "We went into the 1 Exhibit building there we found ' a few exhibits, (about as many 1 as you can find in the Cheyenne' Wells’ Land Company office) but what few were there was good. ' Die Arl exhibit and needle craft work of the school children were simply fine, and could not have' been better, they looked as if they had been done by experien- j ced hands. We did not think! much of their stock show. Their races were fair, and theßirdman was there with his machine to do his part of the program, but the wind was too high. From what we see of the exhibits there was plenty of good stuff in the coun ty which the Fair Association could have obtained, if they had went out among the farmers and tried to get them interested, and showed (hem that it was for their benefit as well as the Fair Asso ciation. ff you want to have a good fair you have got to have the j CQ-operation of the farmers, for they are the main spoke 3 in the wheel. The people who attended this fair from Cheyenne county think it was fizzle. We do not' this to ‘ knock” on the Fair, I but our readers know that we I tajl things the way we see them, ! no maticr who it hits. j Gflt out and get your farmers .interested, and next year have a I Kgir.thaf you can be proud of. j On our road to Burlington last Friday we passed close to the ranches of F. F. Hibbard. J. A. Dtenly, S. C. Hill, R. B. Lothian, J. B. Sullivan, Bruce Jackson, J. S. Baber and Frank Murphy and at all these places they had good comfortable homes and every thing'showed of thrift with their large fields of corn and other crops, and their many large stacks of small grain waiting to be threshed. ARAPAHOE Miss Annie Tuxhorn is visiting friends in Brandon. Miss Culham, of Chapman, Kansas located on a homestead while visiting here. Grant and Lee Shepard were calling on friends south of Arap ahoe Sunday evening. Little Helen Sawyer, north of Arapahoe, was quite sick last week requiring attendance of i he doctor and her grandmother, Mrs. J. S. Abernathy. J. H.

Lester Ingram, of Brandon, was taken suddenly ill at the Tuxhorn home Friday of last week and was not able to return to his home until Sunday. Mr. Ingram will be remembered by many as one of the motor cyclists who participated in the blood curdling race at the Cheyenne county Fair. Should this splen did young man’s illness pertain to the heart in any manner, we hope for him a permanent cure. Mr. Nesbitt who was recently reported as having suffered a to tal loss by hail, says that he will harvest 2,000 bushels of corn and about 900 bushels of small grain. Other ‘‘sufferers” send similar reports. It is to be regretted that facts are not obtained be- j fore such distressing news is put into print. Mr. Nesbitt is a member of the Frontier Band which furnished music at Chey enne, Wyo., and for the Kansas State Fair, as well as tilling nu merous minor engagements. This gentleman received much personal sympathy from people at the above named places be cause of his ‘‘total loss by the most destrujtive hail in any country” and was kept busy when off duty trying to persuade those misinformed that he did not need “tips” and would not be a county charge this winter. Many eyes are on Eastern Color ado. Many people are coming this way. Let us be careful to misinform no one. GRAND VIEW A. J. Martin and wife spent Sunday evening with Mr. Barns. C. T.
