while it was very beautiful, and dis
played almost unlimited number of

From Mfnday's Dally
The death of Mrs. Sarah M. Van

the Methodist hospital at Omaha,
where she was taken a week ago to

for many years resided in Omaha
where Mr. Van Sant was engaged in
the commission business.

the parade the same was cut short
by those unable to appear. This is
like the farmer who plants, plows
and cultivates his crops to find that
a lack of moisture, grasshoppers and
chinch bugs have ruined his other

crop, and after he has expended his
time and money to xroIuoe It.
However, notwithstanding the dis
rouragement this year's. fair was a
success, and with the new building in
readiness for next year's fair. It
should be even more successful.
The hot. dry. windy weather dur
ing the county fair of 1939 will go
down in history as the worst ever
remembered by the oldest inhabi
tant. Each day was a battle with the
elements and man was almost beaten.
It was extremely hard for those who
had the brunt of the work to do, and
they are worthy of much praise for
the wonderful way in which they
carried on despite the unpleasant

Many at the Fair Friday
Everybody came to the fair on the
last day. Friday, regardless of the
weather. It was school children's
day also and all departments were
crowded with sightseers. Conces
sions were busy and everyone had a
good time. It was a record-breaking
crowd. The parade was smaller than
usual, owing to the extreme heat and
the-wind which tore the decorations
off the floats almost as quickly as
they were decorated. The intense
heat kept many out of the parade
also, but this is only one year and
next year is another, and we will
all look forward to the coming year.
There is something about a county
fair which thrills young and old.
We 190k forward to them all sum

ot a blue ribbon brings joy to tha
heart, whether it be found on a jar
of peach pickles, a piece of needle
work, or on a fine horse, Se we all
