was held in this city during the
last of June and first days of July.

er, also there was but six days this
year as against seven days a year
ago. 'ihese items have made the
receipts much smaller while the
expenses are high as is everything
else, making a cut both ways. By
the financial statement it is shown
that there is still a profit but i.n
