iroved a daawing card for Broken
Ijow. When they were hero in ' 92
they attracted the laruost crowd
that had over congregated in the
city. It was not thought they
would bo able to draw as largo a
crowd ibis time , as it is a very
busy 'imo with thu fanners. But
in that we were mistaken , Tha
crowd was not only as largo but
larger than the ono HOVOII years ago.
The managers informed UK that in
the afternoon there wore eleven
thousand peopln in the lorgo pavil
ion. When wo asked if they did
not have more than that in ' 92 they
answered that the pavilion was not
as largo , by ono third , in ' 92 as il is
now , an 1 the crowd Monday could
not have been crowded into it. It
was a big show and every ono who
attended the afternoon exhibition
wore well ploaiod. It was much
larger than seven years ago. It
took twenty more oars to carry
t IIP in , there being quite an increase
in the number animals , The man
agers of the show were highly
pleased with the reception given
them hero by Ouster county people ,
and assured us that it would not bo
as long before they come again as
