f> r Sir!—Your are a stockholder in

What are you doing to make this weeks

while you are sitting by idly, doing
nothing hut, grunting about no interest,

He charges the stockholders with
’‘sitting by idly and grunting about no
interest being taken” when the facts tire
that they have been doing what they
can uu b r ib circumstances to l'.eip it
along. The plain fact is that neither
the preiniun list, or speed ring which
was dictated by 'V R. .Mellor, offeis
any inducement to anyone to make ex
liibits or to enter in the races, and
upon this tin1 failure or success of a
county fair dept lids If Mr. Mellor
wanted the assistance of Che stockhold
ers why diit hi’ not solicit ir several
weeks ago and not wait until two days
before the fair and then in substance
s tys to lt< stockholders quit your growl
ing and help me to make a gootl job
out of a bad one. But tin; fact Is no one
lias been growling. The trouble is that
Mr Mellor is just beginning to see the
tail end of liis tizzle and lie is trying
to shift tin* responsibility on the should
ers of the stockholders.
