SMITH In planning your recreation for the fall of 191(1 do it systematically, as in- deed everything must be done in these 20th century times to be success- ful, and arrange for all the enjoyment for yourself and family that your cir- cumstances warrant. The comfort and pleasure we get out of life is about the only investment that is certain of results. Nothing can rob us of the pleasant and profitable mem- ories of a day well spent. There will be county fairs and local expositions galore. They are delightful reunions and landmarks of progress which should be patronized and enjoyed by all who can afford the time and ex- pense. Then, there are old settlers’ picnics, soldiers’ reunions, camping parties, picnics and maybe the circus willvisit your town. They are all a Precinct No. 50.

A beautiful custom has grown up in this cosmopolitan state, of writing around among friends and arranging to meet at the State Fair. “Meet me at the Fair” is a pretty good slo- gan, because where you meet those whom you expect, you are certain to meet twice as many whom you do not expect, and —you know how it is your- self—lt is the unexpected pleasure that thrills the heart. part, and a splendid part, of the great scheme of human happiness, and the Wise man never misses happiness with in his reach. But do business like a millionaire does it. Make a list of all these things within your reach and study the list carefully. Figure like a banker does, on the investment and return—what it will cost aud what yon willget out of it. That’s the way to “pursue happiness” w’ith a fair chance of catching it. If you will do it that way, there is one attraction—THE GREAT AT- TRACTION —the main feature of the year’s offerings, that you willkeep on the list, and at the head of the list every year—and that one is the GREAT STATE FAIR. Whatever else a short crop, a note falling due, or low or high prices prompts you to cut out,you will never fail to “Re- member the Maine” Event of the en- tire years entertainment. You will go to it and take the whole family with you—not because the Fair needs you, but because you nChd it. Think of what you’ll get if you go, and what you’ll miss if you stay away. Why, you willsee all the finest an fastest horses of the Great North West- running horses —perfect flyers—trot- ters, pacers, three year old colts that can lower the speed record of thirty years ago, and do it without turning a hair; you willsee magnificent draf- ters worth SSOO to SI,OOO each; won- derful Poland Chinas and Chesters that willalmost make you wish you were quadruped yourself instead of biped; great, big, sleek cattle that weigh about, and sell for, twice as much as the kind you have at home, and you willgo talking around among the owners tillyou learn that it costs but a trifle more to grow them than to turn out a SSO plug or a scrub steer. You will be surprised to see how many other places there are in the state besides “Way Baek,” and how many things the people in those places can do better than you can. You will see all the miraculous inventions of Bring the wife, to, that the dear old wife who has grown gray mothering the hens and milking the cows and nursing the babies through all the long struggle from poverty up to af- fluence ; watch her cheeks blush ard her eyes sparkle whileher heart throbs with pride in the grandeur she has helped to achieve. Yes, and don’t leave the children at home. The SOUTH DAKOTA STATE FAIR has heard about them and has taken them into its account. The Boys’ contests and the Girls’ contests will be a reve- lation to them of the scientific mirac- les they have learned to perform while they imagined they were doing mere drudgery. Stimulate the boy’s pride in his high calling and you will have done more toward solving the great problem of the next century — the bread and butter question—than the whole brood of scientists and gabartists.

This Fair of 1910 willhave more things to make a boy laugh than Coney Island can show or Bar- num eyer dreamed of. From every point of view the State Fair has become a necessity as well as a luxury. If farmers will figure like business men, on how to get the most for the dollar invested, they willbe there —not by thousands, but by tens of thousands. The next regular examination for Life, State First, Second, Third and Primary Certificates will be given at Ft. Pierre, on September Ist and 2nd. No other examination will be given untilafter January 1, 1911. Grace A. Reed, Co. Supt. BIG AUCTION SALES EVERY SATURDAY At INMAN’S AUCTION STORE, Kadoka, S.D. ?????? ???????
