Only nine more days remain before

ones for the fair officers and their as
sistants. Lumber and other materials
are being placed on the grounds to
day and tomorrow work will begin on I
the erection of stands, stalls and oth
er necessary requirements to the fair.
Messtl. Byrd, Watts and Power have
been buty for the -past several days
arranging the premium list and the re
sult of their labors is found inl today's
paper. A rough estimate of the priz
es being oflered this year places the
money value at $500, being more than
has ever been offered before. These
were offered largely by' the merchants
of Laureus, who are showing a great
deal of Interest in the annual event,
and by a few others, four prizes being
offered by citizens of Cross 11111,
Alesars J. I. & W. E. Riasor, J. 0.
Denny, W. P. Rasor, S. 0. Brown and
Dr. J. H1. Miller. The premium list
will be printed in circular form and
may be secured after tomorrow from
C. A. Power, -secretary. The prizes
were solicited largely by Pres. W. ).
Byrd, who was very highly pleased
with the reception given huim by those
whom he approached.
Ample accommodations for the night
before will be provided for stock en
tries. As has been their custom in
the past, the livery stables of the city
have consented to provide stable room
free of charge for all live stock en
tries. In addition to these stables,
special stalls 'will be provided on the
grounds for stock that will require
protection during the day.
Miss Wil Lou Gray has announced
that the rural schod6s will have a
booth on the fair grounds and that a
comprehensive school exhibit will be
shown. The exact details of this ex
hibit have'not been decided upon, but
the contribution of the educational de
partment of the county'Is expected to
be a valuable one.
It is planned to have a gate of en
trance and a gate of exit, through
whilh teams may pass without confu
sion. The entrance gate will be at the
usual place near, the colored school
house, while the exit gate 'wIll be at
the western end of the fair grounds.
