That is what the pcopie of Kan as will say to the world next September. when 1 he I 1 iu I'lee fair to be held in the Vnited States will bo opened in Ihe capital city of 1 he slate.

I" stay as long as they wish, and to coine and go as often It was just like Kansas to "pull" the first free fair. It might be said thai it was eminently proper that Kan-j sas should do it. for Kansas is nothing If not nriuiual. Recently there was much discussion as to whether the federal government should in some way finance the sotith's cotton crop. and it was decided It would be im practical. Several years ago. when a stn cession of droughts had paralyzed agriculture in Kansas and farmers had no seed or money to buy it with and thousands of them were leaving the stale, tlie Kansas legislature promptly convened a ml ad va in ed .ltio.«ii in 1 1 he farmers with which huv seed.

She meets every emcruiuicy as it come.:, and neither theories nor limitations deter her. The people of Kansas ai'o not loitered by an 1 enervating conservatism. They an- pro gressive and iialcpen«! -id in th.nivht. and they a re f«»r\vard looking. Tlioy are not bound by the past or afraid to blaze new trail. That's how hey came to ho in Kansas. They and their forebears wore trail blazers. So if something now comes along ami it looks .good to Kansas, Kansas is not afraid to try it. and in doing so. if their Ihoiv-'hts u, eonirariwise to, the remainder of the country, it 1 doesn't make a particle of difference to the people of Kansas. 'onscquently when some one sug gested that the Kansas Stale Pair as so iation's annual exhib'tion bo made a free fair Kansas said right away: "Well, it's a new ihing and looks good and will give us lots of advertisement. Let's try it." That was the spirit that carried the free fair in Kansas. "It's new. looks good and will advertise us." The poo p:e of Kansas like to start something new. and they like to advertise their state. The Shriners of Topeka are now out on the coast. In Topeka 1 here is one of the best amateur bands in the Vnited States—Marshall's band. Some one suggested that, the Shriners take Marshall's band with 1 hem. It num bers forty first 'lass musicians.

That spirit pervades the whole slate «if Kansas. There are Kl,(Ht( square miles of Kansas, ami there are S-1.000 square miles of Kansas patriotism. So the free fair idea appealed pecul iarly to I he Kansas temperament—it would sot the psi«*e for other states and other fairs. Kansas would blaze the way. The Kansas State Kair association has been holding fair exhibitions for tee had broueu up earlier than usual thirty years. It is one of the oldest in and that Stetanssun. if he sought to reach Hanks island, had been pre vented bv open water.

The 1'air association found it self in a bad way. As "necessity is tlie mother of in vention," the free fair plan was sug gested as the liest way to solve the fair problem. The county already hav ing a considerable Investment, it was decided to open tlie gates and make the fair free, provided tlie people would vote a small tax (one-fourth of a mill) with which to pay the fair premiums. It cannot be said who originated the free fair idea, but the first men to urge it were T. A. Borman, former presi dent of the Fail- association, and Mr. Lux, the present president. Both for several years were prominently iden tified with the fair, Mr. Borman being at the time editor of the Kansas Farm er, a farm weekly published In Tope ka. He now lives in Chicago. They decided that the free fair was desira ble not only as a matter of exigency, but as a matter of public policy. They became firmly convinced that the prin ciple was right. Regarding fairs as educational institutions, they could not see why people should have to pay to see and learn. They placed the free fftir on the same plane with the free school. interesting Open Letter to the Public. SISSETON AGENCY SISSETON. S. D. the Sixth Annual 7 and 8, 1915.
