Union, C. A. Doughty. We regret to learn of the death of Mrs. John TurnBy, which occurred at her home, near .Forest City, on Wednes day of last week, Sept. 12th, 190G. In her death our people loses a splendid wife and mother, and one who had abided in our county for a number of years, and passes over to the other shore, enjoying the love and esteem of neighbors and friends. She was 62 years of age at the time of her death, and had been a member of the Christian church for several years. Funeral ser vices were held from the Forest City Christian church on Thursday, and were conducted by Rev. Hardman, the interment being in the Forest City cem etery. We extend our sympathy to the bereaved husband and other relatives. J. R. Peacher has purchased the A. L. Ceskey property. "Lumpy Jaw. Actinomycosis, or lumpy jaw, is a disease of cattle which has long caused much troubie-to stock raisers in mnny sections. Until recent years it was er roneously supposed to be communicable from one animal to another and even to people, but it is.now known to be caused by a fungus which is conveyed into the tissues by VHrious foodstuffs through slight wounds of the mucous membrane of the mouth, decayed teeth, or during the sheddiog of milk teeth. The rayfun gus, as it is called, is found in nit jn .vegetated on grasses,on the awns of bar ley, .the spears of oats, and on other 2rain3 The danger, therefore, comes from the eating of infected food rather j than from the association of healthy ani-1 mals with affected ones. The disease is , caused by the multiplication of the funi in the tissues, which precedes tutnorp. j The head is usually the seat of the af , fection, the disease being frequently lo- i cated in the soft tissues, the tongue, or the bone. For many years the treatment was almost entirely surgical, but the De partmeut of Agriculture, in a circular just issued, recommends iodine of potas sium a9 a remedy, this treatment having j been used with success during late years, xne loome oi potassium is given . in doses of one and one-half to two aod one-half drani9 once a day, dissolved in 1 water, and administered as n drench. ; The dose should vary 6omewhat with ; the size of the animal and with the ef- ! fects that are produced. If the dose is : sufficiently large, there appear signs of J idoism in the course of a week or 10 days. The skin becomes scurfy .there is a weep ing from the eyes, catarrh of the nose, and loss of appetite. When those symp toms appear the medicine may be sus pended for a few days and afterwards re sumed in the Game dose. The cure re quires from three to six weeks' treat ment. The Missouri Her Messenger. L. C. Gabbert and E: M. Swartz, of St. Joseph, while sailing on the billows of the Big Muddy, one day last week, opposite the foot of Francis street, found a bottle containing a note from Miss Estella Garner, of Oregon, Mo., R. F. D., No. 4, box 62. The note read: Oregon, Mo., Aug.. 10, 1906. Dear Sir: I will now take the pleas ure of sending you my address by the water and my compliments. I have dark hair and blue eyes, weight 110 pounds, light complexion, Ave feet four inches tall, age 17 years, and certainly love to dance. The first boy who findB this, please answer, and if you have any pictures, send them. I will deliver you one of mine in corresponding, through the mails. Well, I will have to ring off, so goodbye. Address your letters to Miss Estella Garner, Oregon, Mo., R. F. D., No. 4, box 62. The young lady resides near the Nod away river, east of Oregon, and the bottle was given to this stream, and then crrried on into the Missouri, and on down to the place where found. The i finders deny having answered or send ing their photos. If Miss Estella re ceives anv response, we (hope she will I let The Sentinel know.all about it. THE HOLT COUNTY FAIR. The First Annual a Grand Success, Fine Stock and Sweet Faced Women, Too Numerous to Mention. Fine Displays and Immense Crowds Make it Among the Best in This SectionMusic and Mirth and flerry-go-Round and Renewals of Old Friendships. The first fair ever ever held in Holt county, was held here October 14-16, 186S. It was organized on the stock plan, through the efforts of John G. Cowan and other prominent farmers of southern Holt. The grounds were those now occupied by Mrs. Louisa Schulte and Perry Moore. John G. Cowan was the first president of the association, ard C. W. Bowman, then editor of The Sentinel was the secretary, and Wm. A. Mackoy, treasurer. Virginia Stuckey, now Mrs. Feter, took the first premium on beets; Geo. Meyer and Dan Huiatt, on apples; Uncle Ferd Rostock on pears, and now 38 years after, his son's wife takes a premium on the same fruit. Uncle Thomas Bragg won on honey, Mrs. Jas. B. Curry won on rag carpet, Frazer Allen won second money in the boy rider ring, under 15, and Julia Meyer woo in the girl ring under 15. Freeman Libby had the best matched buggy team. Among the largest priae winners in the live stock ring were such men as John G. Cowan, Allen T. Bloomer, John Price, F. Libby, Orville Graves, J. Fulton, Levi Devorss and. others. f , The last fair held under this manage ment was in the fall -of 1874,-. when financial embarrassment., arose and on June 15, 1875, the grounds were sold for debts. Among the souvenirs of this old organization, was one in the form of :'a complimentary admission ticket issued to Rev. Graham, who was then pastor of the- M. E. church in this city. iRev. Graham was the father of Mra.r Katej Holtz, of this city, and Joe H. Graham, of Kansas City, and Wm. Graham, of St. Joseph. The ticket is the property of Joe, and he took special pride in showing it. It.read: HOLT COUNTY FAIR. September 13, 14 and 15, 1871. Admit Rev. Graham. Complimentary Ticket. Not Transferable. G. W. Cummins, J. G. Cowan, Secretary. President. Wednesday, September 12, 1906, was not a "fair" day, though it was the first day of the Holt County Fair, under the management of Charles G. Cowan and Cljarles E. Meyer. These gentlemen conceived the idea of having a fair this year, and as Mr. Meyer had an ideal piece of ground, they submitted the matter to the Oregon Commercial Club. They made the proposition that if the club would donate 8500, they would do the rest. No sooner said than done, the $500 was quickly subscribed and things began to move, which resulted in our having one of the very beBt and highly successful affairs of its kind ever held in the county. It rained Tuesday night a drenching rain, nearly three inches falling, and while it helped late corn and pasturesf it almost knocked the first day of the fair out of the calendar, as a financial success, but in the afternoon, things cleared up some, and every ring was carried out and the displays completed and arranged, on account of lack of time, large and roomy tents were used for the agricultural, horticultural and other departments and the arrangements in these were pleasing in the highest degree. The exhibits ic these depart ments were. a perfect wonderment and a surprise to the thousands who visited them. We speak more at length about some of the specially fine exhibits. Then came "Big Thursday," a regular crush a day of fine weather an ideal day for a fair, and an immense crowd. What seemed to be an endless proces sion began passing through Oregon early that morning to the grounds, ad joining town on the northwest. Other roads leading, to the grounds showed a like congestion. There were fully 5,000 on the grounds the second day. Friday, the last day, was cloudy, cool and threatening, and the crowd perhaps reached the 1,000 mark, but all rings were shown. There were no prizes of fered by the management for cattle, Holt County Fair hogs or sheep, but there were liberal premiums in the horse, mule aod colt rings, which brought out splendid ex hibits in all the rings. Music was furnished by the Oregon Cornet band. Each day in the after noon, a Kansas City company furnished entertaiomeat, light juggling and le gerde, main, and on Thursday afternoon a balloon ascension. This also would have been given Friday, but had to be abandoned on account of the heavy wind. Whether or not the fair will be con tinued ne:ct year, we are not prepared to say. Some of our business men favor the street fair, free to all; others are iuclined to a repetition of the 1906 fair, while others favor organizing a Chautauqua. However, Messrs. Cowan and Meyer gave the people a splendid fair and was a success in every particu lar. Below we give the list of awards: GRAINS, ETC.

Seeman had on exhibition two cases of Indian relics, embracing stone axes, celts, hide dressers or tan ners, spears and arrow points made of flint, war clubs, battle axes, war and bird points as nice a display aayou can see anywhere. Besides these he had a One pair of texas horns, mounted, and another mammoth pair that measured eight feet in the clear; also a pair of Angora goat horns, from the Republic of Mexico, and the shell of an Arma dillo (commonly called the ant eater), from Texas. These were exhibited by him, but were the property of James A. Peret, who has spent several years in the south. The taxidermy display by Mrs. Anna Meyer was excellent, and was all her own handiwork. Among them we noticed the raccoon: stork, pigeons, owls, squirrels and jay birds. A cotton bed spread, 86 years old, at tracted much attention. It was made by Mrs. Mary Ruley, in Virginia, in 1820, when she was 19 years old She picked the cotton, spun, carded, wove and turned it. It is now the property of Mrs. T. L. Price, of this city, a grand daughter and name sake. It is in a good state of preservation. The drawn work on display was fine. and quite a number of pieces were shown. Miss Katy Fitzmaurice, of Forest City, and Mrs. Mary Curry, of this city, made the largest display in this line. James A. Vaughn, of this city, had a bed spread there that was made by his grandmother in 1804, near Sperryville, Rappahannock county, Virginia. She planted the cotton, cultivated it, picked, carded, wove and spun and made it into this spread. It does not look as old to us as Jim does, but nevertheless, it was a few years older. C. S. Dobbins, of Forest City, had a fine display of garden and farm products. Water melons, pumpkinB,aweet potatoes cantelopes, onions, beans, Irish potatoes and many other products cabbage, car rots, beets, etc. They were all nice and went to show that C. S. knows how to get good results from the soil. The exhibit of farm and garden products by Sebourn Carson, superin tendent of the County Poor Farm, was excellent, and proves conclusively that the name Poor Farm was or is a mis nomer, for there was not a poor thing in the entire display, which consisted of seven or eight varieties of apples,pe aches, wheat and oats, cabbage, beets, onions, (Concluded on Eighth Page).
