The welfare of the agricultural in
dustry is of vital concern to every
resident of Holt County. The pros
perity and industrial development of
this country are dependent upon farm
ing. To show the progress that has
been made in this County, the Holt
County Fair was organized, and this
year will be held at O’Neill on Sep
tember 26th, 27th, and 28th. While
the fair fui nishes three days of amuse
ment and entertainment, it also has
the more serious purpose of exchang
ing the best of ideas of practical
farmers. Every person who has any
thing worthy of exhibition is urged to
bring it in, and thereby lend their aid
and encouragement to a worthy pro
ject. Entry day is September 25th.
It will be a revelation to observe
how Holt County has developed dur
ing the past four years under the
most adverse financial conditions. We
want you to come to the Fair and see
what has been accomplished during
this perfod. Every year has shown
more and more interest taken in this
Fair and this year we hope .it will be
the biggest and best that the people
of Holt County have ever had. Take
a couple of days off and come.
