The Northern Wyoming Herald
Interesting Program Planned to Make Fair
Especially Interesting to all of Park County
Dates Are September 13, 14
and IS Each Day a Big One
Park County’s big fair dated for September J 3, 11 and 15
looms up large en the horizon of events and the recent work of
committees in building a program insures three days of interest
ing performances.
This year the main events of the program are taken over by{
individuals, firms and localties and staged by them and their money
pays for the attraction.
Thus has the interest in Park county’s fair been extended
and enlarged and it is believed that the crowd the first day will
exceed the record breaking crowd of the third day of last year.
The first days program is perhaps the strongest on the pro
gram. *ln previous years the initial day’s events have been of
more or less of an indifferent character. This year the committee
is determined to get the beat to the front and have staged three
big events for that day.

of W. L. Walls and the entrance of
Henry D. Edmonds of Powrell.
Mr. Edmonds had been regarded a
candidate for the office by many of
his friends but when the ticket was
ready to lie made up by the central
committee it was found that Mr. Ed
moml’s name was certified to the
office of precinct committeeman at
l’owell and therefore disqualified.
The name of Mr. Walls was temp
orarily substituted until the resigna
tion of Mr. Edmonds could be secured
for committeeman. Mr. Walls ha:,
now stepped aside with his usual
Lord Chesterfield grace and Mr. Ed

His running mates will be Wm. May

W'lt-sc Picks a Funny One
Ralph Wiltse of the Palace Market
chose the Farmer’s no-cl'y race as
his snec'al e-ent and the fan it crea
*ed ls3t year when “Red” McCorkle
had such trouble stowing his nair
i will rrod 'ce a keen anticipation for
‘he race this year.
This race is put on as follows:
Tie horses enter the ring hitched to
a light four wheeled buggy with sad
dle and blanket in the back. The
horse is unhitched and has a rope,
halter on only. At the signal to “go”
the contestant saddles and rides a
round on a walk. He then harnesses
up and drives the buggy around on a
trot. The third turn is made under
saddle on a run.
The money Mr. Wiltse has nut in
this race amounts to fifty plunks and
you’ll see the farmers that believe
they have the best all ’round horse
lineup by the dozen. The first money !
is S3O, the second sls and the third
a $5 check. •
This event takes place the after
noon of the third day. See Ralph
Wiltse and make your entries as ear
ly as possible.

MAMMOTH HOT SPRINGS, Yellowstone Park, August 18—
(Special to the Herald)
An official statement has been received here to the effect that
the soldiers in Yellowstone park will be relieved September 30 and
civilian rangers will be substituted.
Two hundred soldiers of the regular army are now employed
and the policing of the park is under the War department.
Under the new plan of using rangers ninety will be employed and
will be under the Interior department.
The soldiers will be set back to their original regiments and
as practically all of the United States army is on the Mexican
border very few will be stationed elsewhere than along the line.
For a number of years the administration of the park has had
this plan in mind and it is believed that a change will be productive
of greater efficiency and at less cost.
