How uch Oe 1 Pay?
That question may be one which you are tr) ing to
soK e. Maybe you haven't figured what it takes in a year's
buying to feed you and your family. If you will figure
you will find you pay a few hundred dollars, and pay no
attention to how much you pay when you say charge it.
Just a few items below show what a saving can be made
in a cash way:

FARMERS URGED TO EX
HIBIT AT STATE FAIR
Ail Exliibit From the County Also
United Presbyterian Church.
We are in receipt of a bulletin
frcm the Nebraska State Board of
Agriculture requesting that farmers
of the county plan to make exhibits
of their best products at the Ne
braska State Fair which opens at
Lincoln, September 1. and that work
be undertaken by some county org
anizations in assembling products lor
a county collective exhibit of farm
A campaign is being conducted, it
is stated, to secure for the State
Fair the finest agricultural exhibits
that the state can produce. The
Fair this year is to be made a pow
erful stimulus to increased food pro
duction. The best that Nebraska
can raise and in bigger variety than
ever before, is the order. Such ex
hibits will afford farmers a better
means of study of these food pro
ducts, they will be the means of in
teresting more people and in de
veloping a heightened enthusiasm
in this most necessary work. Ne
braska, for years, has had a farm
products exhibit unequalled by any
fair in the country, but the plan is
to this year outdo all former exhib
its. Live stock exhibits will be given
the same encouragement as the farm
products. Each year shows im
provement over the preceding year
in this department and the coming
year, it is proposed shall show a
great increase in size. Let all
breeders of high class stock write
to the Nebraska State Fair, if they
have not already done so, and se
cure a premium list of the Fair and
entry blanks. Full information will
be given upon request.
