The closing out of the fair grounds last week in the sale of lots marks an epoch in the history of this county that brought joy once a year to many of our people. For many years the fair was held beginning on Tuesday next to the 20th of August, continued four days Ihe most leisure time in this section, and therefore drew large crowds each day. While spirited contests were common for the premiums' yet the social features the hours of leisure, where friends met friends in pleasant conversation, were cf far more worth and enjoyment than the amount of money staked by the Association. The Association was organized and held its first fair in 1834. At that date and for several years later, much interest was found in trotting races, and the Association played to sentiment and dropped below the profitable point. The patronage was not sufficient to sustain the premiums attractive to the trotter, and the fair association paid deficits and disband ed. Some four or more years passed, and Mr. W. H. Hudson, owner of the ground, renewed the fair and it was conducted by him with C. S. Harris Secretary and advertiser, for several years. At his death the ground was sold, and a. company of eight men bought it, organized The Columbia Fair Association, and held a fair each year with varying financial results, but always played a little to the safe side of the ledger. In 1915 it held its last show, sold the grounds at public outcry, and it was bought by four of the old association. Last year they failed to play even, and sold the ground to the Wakefield Realty Company, of Shelbyville, who pub the financial touch to.its history in the sale of lots No more will be seen the spirited rivalry that for years elicited applause. No more will the blue be tied on the wrong nag or to the halter of an unworthy Jersey. It's a Malindagone to return no more so far as that plot of ground is concerned, but its marks of passing designed by those who reaped the harvestleaves four pillars to its two main streets, as we understand, marks of respect to commemorate the names of four of The Columbia Fair Association and known as the "Big Four," namely. R. F Paull, H. A. Walker, J. B. Coffey and W. L. Grady. The first pillar next to town marks the chief and prime promoter and director of the four R. F. Paull the second H. A. Walker, President of the Association, third, J. B. Coffey, Secretary, and fourth, W. L. Grady, the spirit that moved in many hotly contests, where the Peacocks usually wore the blue, In speaking to a member of the Realty Company the question was asked, Why did you leave that sturdy oak in the center of the first street, and what relation does it bear to the old fair association? We were informed that it was left to commemorate a fifth member C S. Harris long the Secretary of tha Assuciation, and signifies opposition not always in accord with the "big four," but always in the middle of the road. Mr. Robert Yorfndg being a member, was left with no memento. Mr. Lem Smythe, active only the four days of the Fair was not memorialized, while J. H. Young was left several lots at a price he was willing to pay to identify his interest and long connection with that plot of ground No more fairs, no more blues Columbia Is stretching out. fare-you-well non-resident A Home Wedding. 32-3- Wednesday, June 6, was the wedding day of Miss Sallie Williams, daughter of Eld.

Very little work wilbibe needed that he can not do. With such careful attention as a boy gives, the pigs thrive better. Sanitation is improved and diseases lessened.

The Federal Land Bank located at St. Louis sends us the following important iniormation: 'The Federal Land Bank, by lowering interest rates and arranging for long time loans, relieves the farmer of worry and thus sharpens his mind and speeds up his physical energies. The local bankers can with us and we feel certain they will by cheerfully granting temporary assistance to the farmer whose obligations mature on a date earlier than can be reached by him through his National Farm Loan Association. The farmer may need the money for fertilizer, which would increase the crop yield; or for improved implements, or for an additional team, which would allow him to widen his cultivated acreage, or he may need fencing so that he can get his herd of hogs on to grass; and by these means swell the total of food produced. It is a patriotic act to help him and thus increase his output. "So far as information is in the hands of this Federal Land Bank the bankers, as a class, stand ready and willing to grant this help. by our fellow bankers throughout the farming districts will be appreciated by us, and would prove their patriotism to all observers in a most convincing manner. In the meantime the Federal Land Bank has reached the point of approved forms for carrying on the business, and it only remains to have them printed and distributed when the appraisers for the bank will be engaged in visits to Farm Loan Associations for the purpose of final approval of loans." co-oper- ate mmmmmmmwnfflnmmm .

Prof. Seligman, of Columbia University, makes a powerful argument in the New York Times against too large war taxes in the first year of the war, explaining how Great Britain increased her taxes somewhat in the first year of the war and to a much greater extent during the second and third years. The first year of a war is, Prof. Seligman argues, a period of and the taxing power should be most careful not to overdo the matter in the way of new taxes. If the war is anoth- er year after America enters the war the writer argues that taxes can be increased just as was the casein Great Britain. Coming down to definite figures he recommends that the proposed war tax in the first year be decreased from $1,800,000,000 to read-iustment ,7;. m w All Work Together.

If least some rica, together with Australia and half of North America, became at once involved in the greatest war of all history. Why were Mr. Bryan and most of the Democratic leaders so incapable of seeing and understanding? The true answer is not entirely discreditable to them. The people of the United States, taken as a whole, could not believe in possibility that we should become a participent in the present war. They were thoroughly pacific in their convictions as well as their wishes. Mr. Wilson was reelected President because the average peaceloving person of the West and South believed that under no circumstances could the Wilson Democracy be provoked into assuming the status of belligerency, while, on the contrary, it was feared that if Roosevelt or Hughes should be made President this country would be fighting with the Allies before the war was ended. Mr. Bryan and the average Democratic Congressmen merely represented the state of mind that prevailed throughout the country regardless of party.

General Borsevio's assaults failed entirely before the determined resistance of the troops, who even made a further advance between Castagnavizza and Voicizza, the tract dominating the Brestovizza road, threatening the Hermada stronghold. The modification of the line in the center, South of Jamaino, is due to the fact that the Austrian artillery on Hermada could still sweep the front of the new Italian positions. The whole situation is practically unchanged and the Austrian positions are still closely pressed and menaced' by the gains made by the Italians in their last advance. 10,-00- Washington, June 7.
