Seats Being Reserved Conflagration Did Not Hinder} Better Than Evl According to Leo Dalley, secretary o£ the Clay County Fair, hundreds have already made reservations In •the big, new $45,000 grandstand. Fair patrons are Urged to get their reservations made early. Reservations can be made 'by phoning the secretary at Spencer. In spite of additional seating capacity it Is e'xpected that attendance this year 'will shatter all previous records. Thousands throughout this section of'the state are planning on spending at least one day at the "World's Greatest County Fair," Intending to start from their homes early In the day. Clay county has practically completed their road paving program this year, "and Inclement weather would make little or no difference In spite of the additional and better entertainment this year there will be no advance in prices, Secretary Dailey stated. Tuesday , wil •bo family bargain day, children ad mltted free to the grounds, and may select any seat In the grandstand for the nominal sum of five cents.

Nothing approaches it In, this country or Europe. One hundred ten feet in the air, using no net. An attraction great in suspense, in gripping sensationalism and in entertaining power. Veterans to Compete in Auto and Harness Races Considerably more money is be- ng spent by the management of the Clay County Fair at Spencer to 1 at- :ract the most daring auto race drivers in the country this fall. With the enormous seating capacity of the new grandstand it is felt that the better races will attract more fans so that the extra money will return in the form of increased attendance and interest In the Saturday program. Several drivers will be present who will make Gus Shraeder drive his speed demon faster than ever before if he would retain his record on the Spencer track. Jimmy Malone, famous starter of the Florida races, will be present and handle the flags for all events. The concrete wall should furnish ample . protection for the thousands who en^oy the smell of burning oil ar\d the thunderous detonations of the powerful racing cars. Fast, Horses Entered. "Only the bear-cats go to the Spencer Fair," say some of the race horse men. This may be true to a certain extent as they 'have always iad the. best horses in the country :here. . We understand arrangements have; been made to have two consolation races on Friday afternoon which will provide an opportunity for those horses which have been out of the money earlier in the week to stage a comeback. This will make Friday's program of four races, ^the 2:12 trot and the 2:11 pace and the two consolations, the finest harness race program of the week. It will mean 12 events instead of the usual ten and will attract many of the horses who are afraid of the "bearcats." Cato's Vagabonds to Furnish Dance Music Dancing, too, will play an important part on this year's entertainment. Cato's Vagabonds will furnish the music each afternoon and evening, rendering the newest and snappiest hits of the season, in the new dance hall with the mirror-like floors. fah , -™« 'o alN | "Far from l K .|, lt , „ Mr. Dalley wiys, "\\- e rt more people i,, ',. ome ''" ) ' well and how nuich of th. area has alrm.iy been rebuilt"!

People driving to the fair at Spencer will not have to detour even though men will be working on the shoulders. Travelers are urged to drive carefully as the traffic will of course be heavy at times. It will be a great convenience not to make a detour when we are on our way to the fair.

You will see the lady manipulate the levers and wires from the rear as the Robot walks about the track in front of the grandstand.
