CLAIR COUNTY, MICHIGAN, THURSDAY, September 28, 1922. $2.00 Per Year In Advance Yale Fair and Night Show Is On This Week BIG CROWD IN ATTENDANCE AND EVERYONE IS PLEASED WITH PROGRAAl.J-FRIDAY IS PORT HURON DAY If the weather man continues the same kind of weather for the last of the week that he dealt out the first, there 'sn't a question of doubt but what the Yale fair will be a success in the way of attend ance. A fair crowd vas out on Wednesday and all speak well of every feature of the show. The base ball game between Yale and Capac was an interest ing contest. Capac, the self styl ed champions of St. Clair county were humiliated by the fast play ing Yale launch. But it was some game. Yate won by the score of 8 to 7 in 11 innings, and our team will have a chance in the play-off game Friday. Two snappy horse races were pulled off, a green pace and a 2:18 pace. There are the usual number of wheels and other devices that visit the country fairs, and the kiddies seem to have special de light in the rides provided. The list of special attractions are better than are usually found, and the mid-way is a crowded thoroughfare at all hours. The balloon ascension and par achute drop is one of the biggest drawing cards of the big show. On of the attractions for the balance of the week is an old timer for our city, the Henderson Juvenile Kiltie Band, which has been here on two different occas ions, and are we!l liked. The program for today will be a repetition of the good thing) presented yesterday. The base ball garr.j is between Fargo and Emmett, and the con test will be a hard'fought one al the way through. There will be the balloon ascen. sion and drop from the clouds, the other five frea acts and two horse races a green trot and a 2:40 pace. , This evening there will be a big show on the grounds. All tho acts will be shown and there will be a grand display of fire works. The fireworks display which will be seen every evening will, be furnished by the Thearle-Duffield Co., which has furnished the displays at the State Fair for sev eral years, and you may be sure 'hey are good. Friday is the banner day of the fair, and it is expected that Yalo will have the biggen crowd of vis itors ever gathered :cre for a day's entertainment. The Port Huron Chamber of Commerce has promised to come up and visit the fair, and will bring along a big crowd of boosters from that city. It will also be school day, every pupil under 13 years of age from the Yale schools and also the surrounding rural schools will be admitted free of" charge. It isN expected that all busi ness places of the city will be closed to help swell the crowd at the fair grounds. The Odd Fel lows will also take part in this days doings. The base ball game will be between the two winning teams of the other days, and the purse will be big enough to guarantee an interesting game. The attrac tions will be Prof. Gilmartin in a balloon ascension and para chute drop, the Kiltie band, the Scotch pipers and dancers, the four other free attractions; two good horse races Free-for-all and farmers, race. There will also be a big program of Scotch games, and those wishing to enter in the different events should see the secretary before Friday. The evening will be filled with a program of different amuse ments and the mid-way will be wide open. Free dancing in the dancing pavilion each day and night, and the best of music will be in attendance. Music for each and every day will be furnished by the Berville 30-piece band. The program for Saturday has not been announced as vet. but those in charge wish us to stato that there won't be a dull moment all day. A goodly number of entries of live stock have 'veen made, and the spaces for exhibiting have all been taken by Yale and Port Huron people. For an exhibition gotten up in suc h a short time it is better than most of the people expected. The Expositor wishes to con gratulate Pres. Oliver, Sec'y Pow ers, Messrs. Hilldore and Martin for the success they have made of the Yale fair in such a short time. They have demonstrated the fact that an annual fair can make good here, and we think it behooves our citizens and busi ness men to get busy and organ ize an association. HEAVY LOSS BY FIRE On Tuesday of this week at about 11:30 fire destroyed the dwelling house of Elston Huff man just outside the city limits on the west. The fire was caus ed by sparks from the chimney catching in the roof. Help was called and our fire laddies were immediately on the spot and a bucket brigade got busy, using water from the pump. Being short of ladders it was impossi ble to reach the peak of the house where the fire was locat ed. The chemical engine was brought into play and held the fire in check until the liquid used ran dry and the time taken getting more let the fire get a fresh start. Connection was made to the city hydrant near the bridcre and about 2.000 feet of hose used. The hose company worked faithfully, saving part of the main building and the kitch en in the rear. The fire loss on the dwelling will be heavy, with only $1,200 insurance. Nearly all of the contents were saved. Slight in surance on contents. Mr. and Mrs. Huffman want to thank those who worked so hard at the fire and friends and neigh bors for kindness shown since. Mr. Huffman will fix up the kitchen that was paved to live in until he can rebuild. LIEBLEItS SALE DATES Oct. 3, Lynn Gardner, Croswell Oct. 4, Jas. Monohan, Browr City. Oct. 5.

R 'member - NOW II POPPING i PONE tr -v HERE Brooks Fletcher, the Dramatic Orator is the First Lyceum Attraction The Yale Music Study Club is so confident of the splendidness and excellency of the course it has booked for Yale this season that it feels success already in every way. The first number conies early but just when there is little rush in any other direction, and the whole town and community will want to hear the famous Ameri can lec:urer and orator, Brook3, Fletcher, who will be with us on Friday evening, October Gth. Brooks Fletcher has a national reputation. For years Redpath has advertised and booked him in more than two hundred nights a year from coist to coast as "Vne Outstanding Dramatic Or ator of America," and he goes back to the same towns over and over again. It won't pay to miss hearing this man of men and he will be in ou own town next week. Season tickets are now being sold for the course, and the Club is making it an object for every one to buy. The very low .price of $2.00 for the three high grade attractions which are costing the clubmuch more than last year should appeal to all. It seems very little for the ben efits to be derived, and the Club members are trusting that every seat will.be occupied by an appre ciative audience each date. Remember Friday Oct. Gth, is the first attraction and the Audi torium the place. OLD RIVALS WIN The first foot ball game of the season was played on the home grounds between Yale and Mar lette Tuesday. After a hard struggle Marlette finally won with a score of 12 to 0 . The Yale boys did exceptionally well and the loyal supporters are proud of their untiring efforts in the game. The line proved a suc cess although it was made up of green men. The backfield did its work in a very passable manner. There will be a game with Brown City here Friday after noon. The game will be called at 3:00 p. m. Be loyal to the high school and help support the home team. With proper support from the side lines we can win this game.

In the Counties already canvassed 65 per cent of the mem bership has been renewed with considerable territory yet to be covered in the counties at this time, according to Mr. Brody, secretary-manager of the Michigan State Farm Bureau. These results prove that the majority of the farmers are do ing some mighty strong thinking and that they realize the value and necessity of co-operation if the business of agriculture is to be successful. According to officers of the St. Clair County Farm Bureau, a similar campaign will be put on in this county in the early spring.
