Dear Sir: The management of The Flora Fair Is very fortunate In securing The World famous "Ktltle " Hand for the Flora Fair for this year.' It would be Idle tor any local band to make a preten.se even of competing witli this justly celebrated aggregation of musi¬ cians. Aside from the novelty of their entertainments, tlieir Scottish songs and Highland dances and their unique uniforms and Instruments, every member of the band is a master of music. 1 am aware of the sacrifice and effort tlie Fair management has made to secure this attraction for the Fair and the entire community is to be congratulated at this opportunity to witness and liear these rare enter- taiiiuients. 1 hope to attend every one of their concerts myself and shall adviseevery memberof Chaney's band and other musicians and lovers of music to do likewise. 1 am sure we will all be benefitted as well as riciily entertained. « W.

Dear Bob: 1 want to congratulate your Kair management In securing The World Kamous Scotch Highlander Hand, "The Kilties" for your Kair this year liisteadyf the cheap so-called "Kree Acts." My experience as secretary of tlie Altamont Kair for several years taught me the utter uselessness of n.ost of these "Kree Ac^.s" as a draw¬ ing card. 1 have beard this cele¬ brated musical aggregation artd they have a great reputation which I am sure lliey will sustain in Klora. 1 look forward with pleasure to being with you at the Fair, and the pleasure 1 am sure will be greatly enhanced by the presence of this band. Their tiuiiiue uniforms and tlieir Scotch Highlander songs and d.inces as well as their performance on musical In¬ struments, should prove a great ,.^ dr:;wliig card. Kred Xaumer,, Mayor.

R. shows that during the monthsof June and July, the "On Time" record for p;i.s.seiiger trains on tlie Ralllmore & ^Miio Southwestern was ninety-six percent.
