Thu attendance at the county

ance Friday was not so largo , yet it
was highly satisfactory. Wo have
not buon able to loam the amount
of iho receipts of the fair , but have
been asmiml by the president ol
the society that they weio ample to
meet all liabilities. In both the
attondauco and financially , the fuir
was a decided success. I'lio man
agement was successful in providing
all the attractions in the way of
nport that they advertised , and in
every way worked hard to make the
exhibition satisfactory as well at
The exhibits in the art hall , as
well as in the poultry department ,
were not all in until Thursday , but
when all in , made a very creditable
display in both. The school exhibit
was fully up to the standard , Miss
Emma Keyuor's school , of Hoosier
Valley , had , among others , a very
In addition to the cattle wo men
tioned last week , Peter Rapp baden

Among the agricultural products
was a veiy fine exhibit by G. R.
Russoin. Some parson irom Hoosier
sier Valley had a iiuo display of
melons. All the exhibits in the
agricultural hall were exceptionally
good , but being unabio to learn tbo
name of the individual exhibitors ,
we am unable to give them personal
The only great dofeot in the ex
hibit was tbo lack of exhibitors in
stock. As Custor is ono of the
\ctii \ stock raising counties in the
state , wo think a special inducement
should be offered to make the stock
display one of tbo prominent t'ea
lures of iho fair. To do this , a
laigo premium should bo offered for
hoveral grades of cattle , as well as
hogs. If a premium of 4(100 ( could
bo put up each , for herds of five of
llerefords , Shot thorns , Polled An
gus , Rod Poll , with a less amount
for Jerseys and grades , it would bean
an inducement for stockmen to
bring in their catllo. Lot the $100
n each class ho divided into three
premiums , 1st , 2d and 3d , in pro
portion to $50 , $30 and $20. This
would give all a ohauco to make
expenses. Another needed improve
ment is sheds fi-r cittlo. If the
society has not the money to offer
in premiums , it might be secured by
popular subscription , the saim as is
frequently done for races. Stook-
muu would doubtless subscribe to a
fund of that kind , as well as mer
chants , who are interested in eroing
i stock intercetB represented at the
1 county fair. Wo do not favor making

II. L York , of West Union , for
roproHontativ < s. ' 1 hey now have n
newspaper established at the county
seat , and another strong advocate
of mid-road party principles in the
Callaway Independent , at Callaway ,
which will enable the loaders of the
party to put up a live campaign for
their ticket As they are in the
field in dofonho of the original prin
ciples of the populist party , they
will in another year be the principal
rival of the republican party. Those
who persist in following Bryan this
year at the sacrifice of principles ,
and for spoils , will be ho-rtily sick
of their courHO , ana will again neok
chi'ltor in the populist household.
Tliuro is , however , quite a number
of former populists who have bo-
comu completely disgusted with the
leaders of the fusi-tn olomenl , who
will vote the republican ticket this
fall , and f < r all time to como , if the
