Three weeks from today the Coun
ty Fair will open. It is time to plan
exhibits and make ready for their
display. Everything points towards
a successful fair. There ought to
be a showing of products this fall
that would open the eyes of all vis
itors. Everyone should do their part.
Study the premium list. Three thou
sand copies of this is being mailed
this week. If you fail to receive one
write a card or call on Wm. 0. John
son, Secretary at Willmar, Minn.,
and a copy will be mailed you.
The premium list is a compact
pamphlet of 52 pages which contains
the rules for exhibitors as well as
listing the cash prizes. Prospective
exhibitors should read this pamphlet
carefully and they will know all that
is essential to know about the con
duct of the various departments.
In their "Greetings" to the people
of the county, the board of manag
ers say:
"Again we take the pleasure in
presenting the premium list of cash
prizes offered for exhibits at the an
nual county fair. Our fair is grow
ing in size and importance and we
want the premiums paid to keep pace
with our growth. The prizes have
been re-adjusted in some instances
but the aggregate amount exceeds
that of any former premium list is
sued. We hope that the people of
the county will respond more gener
ally than before in bringing in the
best of their products to compete for
these prizes and thus help to make
endeavors permanenf^fcuildings and

The Horse Department will be un
der the supervision of Peter M.
Burns this year as last. Increased
interest, is looked for in this depart
ment. Two race programs will be
given, one on Thursday afternoon
and the other on Friday afternoon.
These races take place on the track
on the old fairground west of the
city and an admission of 25 cents
will be charged to same. Consider
able interest is manifested among
owners of driving horses in the coun
ty in these track events which prom
ise to be well attended. All horses
exhibited are expected to be kept on
the grounds during the entire fair so
that all who come may see them, and
not simply for one day, as has been
the practice before.
Five hundred dollars in prizes is
offered in the cattle department, be
sides the $50 prize cup given by the
State Dairymen's Association. The
prize money is the smallest part of
the benefit received by exhibitors.
The chance to compare your stock
with others' and have .them care
fully judged together with the ad
vertising the cattle will receive
among all people interested in good
stock is worth more than any prizes
won. Mr. Stone of Benson has ask
ed for space in which to exhibit his
dairy herd this year. While it can
not compete for any but the cash
sweepstakes prize, and hence can
not pay him any direct returns, he
recognizes the benefits to be derived
from .the advertising his herd will
give him. All prospective stock ex
hibitors should notify the Superin
tendent, C. L. McNelly by Sept. 12,
so that plenty of accommodations
may be provided.
John Swenson Avill superintend
the Swine and Sheep Department.
$235 is offered in prizes for swine
and $66 for sheep. Here is a chanee
to show what can be done in raising
hogs in this county, which is destin
ed to become the center of one of the
greatest pork producing sections in
the country.
In the Poultry and Pet Stock De
partment 164 different lots are list
ed and no "standard" variety is bar
red. The prizes are uniformly $1.00,
75c and 50c for first, second and
third. It is not the intention of the
county fair to attempt to compete
with the poultry show to be put on
later in the season, by the County
Poultry Association, but simply to
give all breeders a chance to show
their stock to the multitudes of peo
ple who will attend the county fair.
A competent judge will make the
awards, and the prizes are more lib
eral than last year. No entry fee
is charged on any exhibit at the
county fair.
John Wicklund will look after the
fruit exhibit this year. There is
much fruit in evidence this year and
the $158 offered in this department
ought to help induce all growers to
make this the biggest fruit show ev
er seen in the county.
The Vegetable Department will be
looked after by John Ahlstrom of
Spicer. One hundred and thirty
four different prizes are offered.
This department usually has a fine
display. Attention should be given
to the special prizes offered for the
best display of grains, seeds, vege
tables and farm products from one
farm. Also for the best display of

Disadvantageous to People Coming
to Willmar on Day Business,
but Fine for Picnic Parties
at the Lakes.
The change of time on the St.
Cloud line is a fine thing for anyone
wishing to spend the day at any of
the towns or lakes to the north, but
is inconvenient for anyone having
business to transact at Willmar.
Anyone coming to Willmar on day
business will have to stop over one
day and two nights. For spending
the evening at Willmar the new ser
vice will be all right. The freight
leaves three days of the week at
practically the same time as the pas
senger, so it will give no relief. The
St. Cloud business men put one over
on Willmar this time. For thru con
nections the change is an advantage
to the people on the St. Cloud line,
for it gives them two chances to
make the Twin Cities each day,
morning and evening. The morning
trains'connects at St. Cloud at once
for the Twin Cities, and the evening
train connects in twenty minutes
with the coast train to the cities.
Our Commercial Club should try to
secure a change in the freight to a
daily accommodation io come in and
leave during the day, and it would
also be a big advantage to have ths
Duluth train run Sundays.
The St. Cloud Times has the fol
lowing to say about the change in
the time card on that line:
"The Commercial club of St. Cloud
has had this matter up with Agent
Neide ad the Great Northern offi
cials at St. Paul for more than a
year and the change was one that
has been strongly sought for by the
business interests of St. Cloud for a
long time.
"The train is of particular value
to all the towns in Stearns county
between St. Cloud and Paynesville
which have heretofore been at con
siderable disadvantage in the way of
train connections for St. Cloud. The
schedule is one especially favorable
to St. Cloud not only for points west
of St. Cloud but also to the east and
to Duluth. Passengers arriving on
the Willmar at 8:30 can connect here
with the 8:30 train for St. Paul.
"On this train St. Cloud people
can leave here at 8:30 in the morn
ing and reach Duluth at 2:25 p. m.
The schedule of the train is as fol
Leave Willmar 6:00 a. m.
Arrive St. Cloud 8:30 a. m.
Arrive Duluth 2:25 p. m.
Leave Duluth 1:30 p. in.
Arrive St. Cloud 4:30 p. m.

A Southern Play.
Manager Crosby considers himself
fortunate in having secured "Tem
pest and Sunshine" for an early
date. It is a dramatization of Mary
J. Holmes' famous novel of the
same name by Lem B. Parker. The
popular production is one of those
kind that is interesting to the old
folks as well as the young, as it
shows the contrast in the natures
of the two beautiful sisters one be
ing quick and passionate the other
gentle and mild. This is a Southern
play about the time of 1850 and the
costumes are of the quaint, old
fashioned style. The scenery is
beautiful and taken all in all the pro
duction cannot fail to please the
most critical theatre goers.
This interesting production comes
