Shore agricultural association has decided to hold its annual fair August. 23rd. 24th, 25th, 20th. The Board has for the past month held weekly meetings perfecting the organization and completing the Premium list for the current year. While in no Case have the awards in any department been Cut Down in a instances have they been increased. In fact never before has the association of. Feed the Public so Large an aggregate in premiums. In the horse department especially have Radical changes in the formation of classes been made. The purses in this department will for 1898. Range from $50.00 to $200 00, thus offering an inducement for tie Best training of the Best Stock on the Peninsula. The Board of directors asks the co operation of the Public in making this the 21st exhibit of the association the be6t in its history. The e. Shore fair is distinctly a fair of the people. It dates its birth from the coming together of a number of intelligent Farmers of the two counties for their Mutual improvement. From very modest beginnings it Lias steadily broadened stretching out at differ ent departments and rising each year to a higher plane until As a successfu1 county fair it stands without a Paral Lei in the entire state. Its purpose and aim have during these Twenty years remained steadfastly the same a the Elevation of the Farmer the advancement of our agricultural interests. And the improvement of our Stock. The effect of these yearly exhibits the coming together of our Farmers and Stock raisers the Exchange of ideas and the consequent adoption of better methods and better machinery have All United to exert such a helpful influence As no other Farmers organization on the Peninsula can boast an influence that no one can deny being very considerable. The secret of its Success is to be Fui idd perhaps in the moral tone and Good behaviour that have characterized these fairs. The vices that too frequently accompany such exhibitions have been studiously guarded against and gambling in every form Lias never failed to meet the censure of the committee. So uniform has been the Good order and so free from the objection urged against agricultural fairs in general has thib been that it has not Only the support of the Best men in the Community and county but also of the Best women. Indeed it has been called the ladies fair both on account of their attendance and the equitable distribution of premiums awarded them. These things have and will continue to recommend the e. Shore agricultural fair to the patronage and and Good wishes of the Eastern Shore people.
