upon the minds of the parents the ad--

that tho children are ready to com- ,
mence , prepared for thorough and effect

necessary to enable the teachers to clas- !
sify and prepare for the work of the I'

sufficient number present desire it. This '

This city is infested with"a tough

YOUR COUNTY FAIR.
Now is the time to make up your
mind to do something for your home
fair. Every fanner and citizeh should
not only resolve , but do something for
his local fair. The county fair is sup
posed to represent the products and re
sources , as well as the intelligence and
enterprise of our county. This being
the fact , it * is incumbent upon every
citizen to do everything possible to en
courage the institution. The getting
up of fairs is at best a thankless' busi-
ness. Fair managers , as : i rule.receive
little credit for their laudable efforts ,
while on the other hand they are sure
to be the recipients of much abuse.
Some people go to their home fair and
make themselves particularly disagree
able to the few public-spirited citizens
who have made the fair by their contri
butions and exhibits , by rudely criticis
ing everybody and every thing , and loud
ly averring that they could beat this or
that exhibit at home. Nothing is more
disgusting to unprejudiced visitors and
investment-seeking strangers than this
style of declaiming and grumbling from
those who should be identifiedith the
institution. The county fair should rep
resent the resources , intelligence and
enterprise of our county. Products of
the farm , orchard , field , shop , the home ,
in fact every industry , business , profes
sion and institution of the county should
) e represented by its best products and
Dfferings. Amusements and daily at
tractions will be provided , so that all
jeople may come together and have a
Peasant , profitable social time , becom-
ng acquainted with each other , com-
mring notes with your neighbor , Icarn-
ng how this and that juccess was made
n your line of business , with that of
some other. ISvery one can well afford
two or three days recreation at a repre
sentative fair , and at the same time
> rofit himself by observation , etc. Ev-
sry farmer , merchant and manufac- j
turer has something that he or his home
jan exhibit that will be of interest to
mndreds of others , as well as credita-
> le to himself. Think what a showing
this county of Red Willow would make
f only one in ten did something in this
tvay. Indicate to the managers of the
'air association that you propose to be
dentified with the fairthis , year. Don't !
et any prejudice or personal matter
vhatsoever stand in your way. Let
no effort fail to be made to make this I
coining fair pre-eminently successful , :

PUBLIC LIBRARY ASSOCIATION.
Quite a company of our citizens , male

Third , And , more particularly , to our own
. ity , situated as it is , in the Republican Val
ley famed for its fertility and beauty , enjoy
ing advantages which are prophetic of its
future rank among the best cities of the state :
( a. ) To secure for it the reign of good'lit.-
eratun ; as an offset to what is bail and vicious
. and acknowledged to be a frequent cause of
( b ) To provide good reading and plenty of
it , as productive of beneficial and lasting in
fluence upon the younger element of our
citizenship in the formation of correct intel
lectual habits and the acquisition of knowl
edge as well as morals ,
( c ) To furnish all classes with the use of
instructive books , that correct tastes and de
sires may be gratified and when they do not
exist may be created , for a proper order of
literature , thus opening to the homes of the
city a fountain of lightand knowledge ,
( d ) To exercise such measures as shall tend
to keep the public mind abreast of our civil
and political power , thereby making the city
attractive , desirable and secure in its intel
lectual privileges , as a place of residence and
business asivell and also giving it character
And further believing that all good citizens
