The Street and County The Stock Show was a Surprlst Even to Farmers and Stockmen, the Exhibits Being Beyond all Expectations In Fine Displays. The First Attempt Along This Line Crand Saccess In all Particulars-Thousands Attend and Eney tha Big Affair The Weather Ideal Fruit and Other Displays. Versailles has created new honors by getting up and carrying out to a successful finish a County Fair t and Carnival which is enjoyable to the thousands of visitors and a credit to all concerned. The whole entertain ment has been promulgated with two weeks' notice. The weather could not have been better, the spirit for the realistic enjoyment of what the people of onr city and county possess could not have been shown to better advantage had a thorough canvass of the county been made. Everybody is delighted at the grand success achieved, and the farmers and stock men, their wives, ions and daughters have joined with the citi zens of our city in completing the dis plays in all the departments, and they were wonderful. The fruit display Ss simply great, the corn exhibit is all that could be desired, the potato, wheat, pumpkin and general displays captivated crowds. The stock exhibits included some of the finest specimens to be found in the State. Driving and saddle hones, draft and fancy horse's, thorooghbred and high grade animals, mules, jacks and colts were shown. Fine cattle and hogs wot e in the show ring and the naany visitors were struck with awe when they gazed at what our own people actually possess in fine stock of all kinds. "Special attention is called to the display of home manufactured articles shown. The brick plant shows several varieties of building, paving and hol low brick, tiling and other finished products. The broom and handle factories have displays for which the managers deserve much credit. The street attractions by the Whit .ney Carnival Company are giving ex cellent satisfaction and all the shows . -are clean and entertaining, the atten xients courteous and visitors are well pleased with them. Mr. Whitney is carrying out his contract to the letter. Hit free attractions are even better than the people expected.

Permanent County Fair I Well, wc guess yes. The high diver has taken two baths each day since Wednesday. A. C. Baldwin's find exhibits of pen drawing and writing at the court house is a good feature. Crewson and Harrison's miniature fair at their real estate office caught the eye of all visitors! The splendid resting booths placed in front of thf business houses was the hit ot the fair. Everyone appreciated these excellent accommodations. Popper's corn contest, Biersach's potato conte'st and li C. Hnrdy, Sr.'s pumpkin contest were nest to the fine apple exhibit at the court house. The splendid displays of clay, glass sand, Fuller's earth', koalin, crystal1 lized byraria, sapolio and onjw exhib ited where they can be seen,' were a happy thought and were the subject of much comment by visitors, provinj; our claims in that line. Representative R. A. Norfleet and wife of Kxcclsiof were in attendance at the fair Tuesday. Vlri KorTIeel was well pleased sVith Ihe fair and stated that he might be counted in favor of a permanent County Fair, as the people in his part of the County had fine cattle and horses and would take an interest in a County Fair. A feature not advertised was Ottil Green's daring feat Friday afternoon of climbing to the top of the Hag pole on the court house "dome, a cili'1 tance of 139 feet above ground. He patted the ball on top of the slender staff while thousands held their breath in amazement. A purse was madd up for him, and the performance was at par with Johnson's high dive. A valuable brood mare owned by Jack Begley living two miles cast of town was killed here Thtirs'ilay after noon. The mare was tied to a pick et fence near Gabril's li very stables and a train passing oit the Missouri Pacific tracks frightened, her. She lunged "on top of the fence and ii picket pierced hei' lowO breast to an extent that the wound proved f.lta't Mr', Begley had taken premiums with two of her colts in the shows Wednesday and Thursday.
