the secretary of the board 'Will reside In
thi city. This the board decided this

It would be necessary to have a resident
secretary In Lincoln to whom should be
paid a salary sufficient to enable him to
devote his entire time to the association
work. The fair will be held from August
30 to September 7, inclusive.
The election of officers by the State
Board of Agriculture was a short order of
business, as there was no contest on for
any office except that of secretary and
as Mr. Bassett had done no campaigning
for the place, and as he would not remove
to Lincoln If elected, the selection of W.
R. Mellor of Loup City was a foregone
conclusion before the voting began. After
few ballots had been cast, Mr. Bassett
moved that the election of the Loup City
man be made unanimous and this was
done. The entire report of the nom
inating committee was then adopted by ac
clamation, the following officers being
Peter Tountrers of Geneva, president:
W. K. Mellor of Loup City, secretary;
Elijah Fllley of Reynolds, vice president:
Joseph Roberts of Fremont, second vice
president; E. B. Russell of Blair, treas

The board of managers held a meeting
