THE FAIR"PR|CE, Last week a committee of women appointed from the Federation of Clubs visited a number of business houses and called upon the proprietors asking.that they assist them in decorating (lie city by flying flags and bunting from their places of business. Everywhere the ladles called they received the hearty co-operation ot all and the nssurance that so far as it was In their power, Hutchinson would be decorated in a very fitting manner. If there have been any who have been neglected, It may have been an oversight and they arc asked to do their share along with the other people. Thla 1B not for the Fair Association but for Hutchinson, and since (here are to he guests come from practically every corner of the United States, the city must be arrayed suitably, livery home is asked to have a flag flying nt» top mast all during the week and thus do proper honor to our guests and also tell the world that every home Is 100 per cent patriotism.

Wichita, Kun\ Sept, 11.—Two Butler County Uircshermen agreed wlih the Fond Administration to thresh seven small jobs near Latham which they formerly hail refused to take care of, according to a report filed to day with Federal Food Administrator Inncs by Ben 1-'. Hector of the threshing division. For a month I he threshermen had rcfuesed to take care of grain on the farms of 11. A. Wright. J. E. Engle, flolifhd Blair, Peter Dogresse, ,1. C. Keslerson, ,T. W. Charles and S. A. iSchooley. These men all had small fields and small stack yards and from the tlirenheruien's view point it was not profitable to thresh the small jobs at the "fair price' 'agreed on at a convention ot fanners and machine men in KlDorndo. J. .M. and IT. H. llltchlngs, owners of a rig, had gone through the 1 -allmm district taking cure of the big jobs which were profitable, aud passing by (he little ones, according to Information furnished lt-clor. They offered to do the little jobs for u bonus of ?10 a haul.
