The Calhoun Fair.

Quite a number of people from Union Parish attended the Calhoun fair last week and they report it a general success. The attendance was good, the exhibits were fine, and the best of order prevailed. The fair was a decided success so far in Union Parish was concerned. In competition with exhibits from several parishes, old Union was awarded the first prize for best general exhibit, and a number of her enterprising farmers and stock raisers received handsome premiums, carrying off in the aggregate about $150 in prizes.

The committee on animals said: “The fine displays of live stock, horses and mules, presented by Union Parish carried the day and the first prize was awarded to it. With excellent agricultural exhibits and the horse and mule industry well represented, the lace of interest in cattle and hogs, as evidenced by the fair display of these animals, was striking.”

While the farmers of our parish possible do no pay as much attention to cattle and hogs as they should, still those on exhibition at Calhoun were not altogether a fair criterion to judge by. On account of the distance, and consequent great trouble and inconvenience in carrying such stock there, they having to be driven overland or hauled in wagons, our people could not well put their best foot forward in those directions.
