PAGE FOUR Read this Ad Humboldt County Fair August 27, 28, 29 and 30 Monday is entry day. Every day is children's day. Tuesday all children 15 years of age and under admitted free at the outside gate. Wednesday and Thursday all children 12 years and under admitted free if accompanied by their parents. We have booked for your entertainment, we believe, one of the best bunch of acts that were ever on the fair grounds. We are not going into detail in regard to same. Come and see for yourself. We have also booked Wolf's rides and shows consisting of 8 rides and 9 shows. They come here direct from Mason City. And we are one of the few fairs where you can buy ice cream cones, pop, pop corn, and peanuts in the grandstand for the same as on the midway. All kinds of warm meals will be served on the grounds. Plenty of stands and the price will be reasonable. Needless to say anything in regard to our race program that the Humboldt County Fair sponsors each year, as the Humboldt County Fair has the reputation of having the best harness races and running races of any fair in Northwest Iowa. Baseball games are as follows: Tuesday, August 28, Gilmore City vs. Thor; Wednesday, August 29, Bode vs. Badger; Thursday, August 30, Livermore vs. Ottosen. Be at the fair and boost for your HOME TEAM. We have booked two good political speakers that will discuss the issues of the day. Lieut. Nelson A. Kraschel will speak Tuesday evening August 26, before the grandstand. Dan Turner, former governor of Iowa, and candidate for governor on the republican ticket this fall, will speak Wednesday evening, August 29, before the grandstand. We are making arrangements for extra seats for these two evenings. Be sure and hear these two great politicians. We expect to have one of the largest exhibits, both in stock and floral exhibits, that was ever on the fair grounds. One of the most interesting and inspiring departments of the fair is the 4-H club department. To see between 275 and 300 of Humboldt county's most energetic and eager to learn boys and girls from the farm in action, showing and displaying their livestock and home economics exhibits should inspire even the most doubtful to new faith in agriculture. Big danco every evening in tho pavilion. Hand concerts daily. A glaring midway, rides, shows, and concessions. Few fairs larger but none better. Come and see for yourself.
