Some changes in the fees of the
county judge were made at the
last session of the state legislature.
The fees for the probating of es
tates are graduated. Estates of
$1,000 or less $10.(X); $1,000 to
$2,000, $15.00; above $2,000, $35.
Heretofore the fees to the county
judge have all been the same.
This will increase the fees of the
office considerably.
Ifc is not too early to put in a
good word for the county fair that
is to be held here this fall. The
fair is important in that it helps to
draw all the people of the county
closer together in a fraternal way,
besides advertising the products
land industriesof the county. Old
friends and neighbors will meet,
probably for the first time in a
year. The county fair, coming as
it does at the close of the harvest,
is a sort of a harvest festival, and
is eagerly looked forward to by
both young and old.
