(From a Staff Correspondent)
LINCOLN. July 25. (Special.) Dodtro
county officials and Dodgo county people
arc up In the air over the now law which
makes It compulsory upon every county
to pay to Its agricultural fair 6 cents por
head on each renldcut of tho county. This
will make a sum duo tho Dodge county
fair of tl.100.
However, the shoe pinches In Dodge
county because there are four towns
which old a fair along agricultural lines
and they all want the appropriation. Fre
mont holds a chicken show. North Bend
has a corn show, Scrlbncr a llvo stock
Fhow and Hooper some other kind of on
annual gathering which comes undor tho
provisions of the bill. Heretofore It Is
understood that the county board has
appropriated $140 to eaoh of the towns
for their show, but $1,100 looks mighty
good and It Is reported that each town
would figure that their kind of a show
entitles them to tho appropriation.
It may demand the wisdom of a King
Solomon to determine Just whether the
chickens, tho hogs, the corn or the other
hind entitles tho town ti! the money.
