At a Joint meeting of the Chamber of
Commerce directors, officers of tho
county fair and the amusement coiu
mlttoo of tho fair hold Wednesday ev
ening, the nmusomcnt features of tho
fair wero considered, and upon mo
tion an appropriation of $1,500 was
made for attractions for tho fair and
for the expense of taking tho county
exhibit to the state fair, and for the
expense of collecting and preparing

ready secured a number of high class
attractions for tho festival which Is to
