town or community sends one of its

Hence the community is the gainer,

night to discuss the Fair Association
proposition as submitted byDladeu
It seems that the county fair lias not
proven a success during the past fow

"franchise." Messrs. Hummel, Cow
den and Maurer, the committee which
was appointed to investigate the mat
ter connected with the fair association,
reported that the association was in
debt to the amount of S17C0. It was
also reported that money to the extent
of $7200, which has been donated by
the county, would have to be returned
if the association ever disbanded.
After considerable discussion, the
Cuathber of Commerce decided not' to
accept the proposal for two reasons
First, because it would Interfere with
our Farmer Institute, which has
proven to be a great success, and any
thing that would injure that institu
Hon should not be attempted. Second,
because of the huge amount of "blue

Soon after taking his olllco, State
Treasurer Georgo K. Hall served notice
on the various county treasurers that
he would require monthly remittances
of their collections of state funds.
Most of the counties have complied
with his ruling except those named be
low. During the 31G days of Mr.
Hall's incumbency up to the 19th of
November, he has written 714 receipts
for county treasurers. This makes an
average of 39.5 dajs between remit
tances or 8 per county in less than a
year. This average of dBys would be
considerably reduced if Dom-lns.
