Tho fair board at a recent meet^ ing decided tiial there was need of a central office, located whero it would i bo easily accessible to nil, and where It would be an advertisement for the big fair-and stampede as well. Por-miesion was obtained from the city to place the building on tho raised portion of Gait Gardens and the lumber w.as donated by Becker & Yates, Tho contract for croetlng the building, which ia 24x1 li feet, was awarded to J. lind W. .Mariioch, and It was buil,t iu sections so tliat it could bo removed after the fair.
