Magratli, Sept. directors r the Agricultural Society are bend- ig every effort towards making the all Fair, which will .be held here lost Friday and Saturday, at the Ex- libition grounds, success. 'or the .past, month meetings have leeu held regularly every Saturday evening, and no stone will be left un- urned to make the fair this season a ecord-breaicer. Besides-being an agricultural -fair 1 first-class standing in the province, he exhibition association have made t a race meet of no small import- nee. This season a splendid race ard has been provided, which will, vithoul doubt, attract some fast bor- es from all over the province.

To this end, they lave woVked untiringly together. There is little doubt, weather per- mitting, that their efforts will be crowned with a brilliant success. The I secretary, B. Matkiu, is deserving of {special mention, as the weight of the whole exhibition practically rests up- on his shoulders. But.
