They will receive valuable assis tance from the county farm bu reau and the local commercial club, and it is safe to say that nothing will be left undone that is necessary to make the fair a great success. Yet it is possible not out of place for the Pioneer Review to remind its readers that our county fair is near at hand, and that faithful co-operation and the loyal support of everyone is necessary to make the fair the great success we desire it to be. In good time this year, the Pionee-Review printed and deliver ed the premium lists, and we un derstand that copics have been distributed generously over the county. The year has been a good one for the farmer and rancher, and the exhibit hall should be crowded to overflowing. In fact if the people of the county give the fair the support it deserves, it will be necessary to construct ad ditional space for exhibits. In this conncetion taxpayers of the county should be reminded that the fair belongs to them. The county commissioners pay the bills and the people of the county reap the benefits. Unquestionably the fair has been much improved by this arrangement. Last year, with the assistance of hte farm bureau There's great satisfaction in using toilet goods that come from our store.

We understand that Boys and Girls' Club work will play a large part in the fair this year. It looks now as if the exhibits of the boys and girls of Haakon county might be the biggest feature of the show, and as if competition among the various clubs would be keen and exciting. This is as it should be. Our farm bureau deserves en couragement for the work it is doing amoftg Haakon county boys and girls, and the ones to give the encouragement that counts are the parents of these very boys and girls. Lend a word of encourage ment and a hand in helping them get their exhibits to the fair, or be prepared to take your medicine and swear it's sweet when they leave you and go off to Henry Ford's automobile establishment in the city. We don't know just what the plans are in that direction, but we hope something will be done to bring several s peakers of note to our fair, not merely to talk-pol' itics, for the politicians" will come without much encouragement, but specialists from our state college or elsewhere to talk co-operation, farm and ranch management, bet ter schools, and other and manifold problems of our country life.

We would not have the fair with out it. But there are other things that interest the farmers and the stockmen, and these should ont be neglectqd. GOSSIP AND GLEANINGS -~f In connection with the nomina tion of Senator Harding of Ohio, we are reminded that every repub lican president has come from Ohio, excepting only Lincoln and Roosevelt. No president since 1860 has been elected without the electoral vote of Ohio.—Ft. Pierre Times. In this connection we wish to remind Clarence that Peer less* Democrat Harrison was from he state of Indiana. He was at one time president. It is also true that he has been catalogued by some historians as a republican. We merely mention these facts, thinking that they may.be of in terest to our friend Coyne, now that he is branching out in poli tics in a large way. General Grant was born in Ohio, but he should be credited to Illinois as a 'presi dential candidate." He resided there at the time of his election at any rate. Andrew Johnson was never an Ohion, we believe, until the closing months of his term. It is a gross perversion of history to say that Harrison, Grant and John son were from Ohio. Arthur was not from Ohio but from New York. I o i •.] This is the first time in the his tory of the United State that the nominees of both the leading par ties for president reside in the same state.—Quinn Courant. Now there goes another editor tripping up on his history. Brother John son should know better than that. To go back only sixteen years, Theodore Roosevelt and Alton B. Parker were both from New York state. It just about keeps us busy straightening out our editorial bretheren on their history these days. It must be the hot weather tbat ha? affected them.

With every prosiect pleasing and with his face set towards the Golden West, he suddenly concludes that he isn't cut out for the tasks of pioneering so he quits the game, cashes in his checks, and bids the House an abrupt farewell. He comes to town arranges the neces sary preliminaries with his bank, hires an auctioneer, borrows a two bushel sack of tin cups and scat ters several hundred bills hither and yon over the county advertis ing a public sale. On the day of the sale, the auc tioneer proclaims that his friend who is likewise a friend of all pros pective bidders, is about to remove to Missouri. Everybody wonders why Jones is going to Missouri, but'no one knows. He has plenty of land, plenty of cattle, plenty of alfalfa, and plenty of nerve. Just why a man thus enddwed should want to live in Missouri is not clear. But while the austioneer extol 1 the merits of the pedrigfeod pigs, the women of the neighborhood in the temporary absence of Mrs Jones, hold a battle-axe conclave on the back porch. That lady i there and then picked to pieces, singed until her pin-feathers an gone, and roasted to a crisp brown and after all that it. appears just why the Jones are leaving Haakon county. The heart of Alvirn Jones is breaking for a glimpse of hej mother. She will never be happy again until the soil of 011 Missou ri is again beneath her feet, and her head is pillowed on the mater nal breast. Oh, what a home-com ing that will be when Alvira and her mother clinch. Jones will be ther*, and honest Haakon kids, some of whom "have never seen Grandma," will fill the baek-ground of the scene but Mrs. Jones and her mother will hold the center of the stage. What matters it if Jones is some* thing of a pathetic figure? What does it matter if he is sold out at the very threshold of his success, just as he was beginning to feel the solid earth beneath his feet, just as he was beginning to ac cumulate enough property so as to find it necessary each July to make an annual pilgrimage to Philip to complain to the county commissioners concerning the as sessment of his cattle? Why should he worry because the auctioneer, the bank, the keen bidders, and railroad fares have taken a large share of his accumulated savings, makingr lt will drive a hog ^n it necessary that he be ajj over agajn ag a renter in the Ozarks? Is not Alvira home? Is she not locked in her mother's ample embrace? What else matters if mother and daughter can be re united? Mrs. Jones loves her mother, and the mother just adores the daugh ter. They feel they cannot live without each other. In fact, the mother has helped not a little to ters. We blush to tell these things such a |and of disappointment and poisonous reptiles.

VACATION SOON OV&& -The Pioneer-Review dislikes very much to hang crepe on the small boy's door, but our duty as a pur veyor of news and as an expounder of opinion, compells us to remind our readers that vacation will soon be over and that the bell will soon be ringing at the door of the Haa kon county school house. It is tough luck, but the school boy might as well get ready to put away the fishing tackle and other belongings that helped to make the vacation glorious. Much as it may pain him to the very core of his heart he must get ready to take up his books again. There is no other way that we know of whereby he may become president of the United States. If he insists upon cutting school and clinging to his fishing pole and treasuered rabbit gun, it is certain that ho will never get farther than the Senate.

The boards in these dis tricts will do well to get busy, if they want school to commence on schedule time. The best hope of getting a good teacher lies in pay ing good wages. We need not ad vise Haakon county school boards as to that Experience of recent years shows that teachers must be paid better wages, if the school are to run. As a general rule, we believe that teachers are being em ployed in this county at an increase of about twenty per cent over the wages of former years. Boards that have not yet employed teach ers can see which waythe wind is blowing.
