Diggs Hardware Co.    mchlStf  la diseasing the Sacramento Street Fair and the desire of Its promoters that Woodland shall elect a maid of honor t< the queen of the carnival, one of the directors of the district (air,makes a aug-geetion that is worthy of consideration.  He thinks that in view of the fact that Yolo and Sacramento coonties now comprise one agricultoral district th* most cordial relations should be cultivated and encouraged between the people of the two counties, therefore he is in favor of the election of a maid of honor.  His suggestion is that the Yolo dire® tors of the agricultoral district take the matter in hand, guarantee to the young lady elected a costume worth $100. or $160 if necessary, the choice to be di-citied by popular vote at a nickel a vote.  If the amount raised by that method insufficient the directors will make good the deficiency. Ii there is a surplus ii will be applied to the payment of tho debt for which the directors have assumed th* responsibility. It will be remembered that when the affairs of the association were settled after the last fair, there was a balance of $600 on the wrong side of the ledger, which tho directors were required to pay.  It seems to us that the suggestion is a practical one and worthy of adoption.  •’The Strollers.’'  Manager Webber ha* booked ‘'The Strollers,” a combination of vaudeville artists under tbs direction of Crosby Forman.
