One of the prominent fair managers gives nis opinión of the marnier in which our fairs should be condacted as follows: ""Washtenaw county has had one suceessful fair and there is no reason why we should not have more. My idea is that the races, balloon ascensions, military drill and other innovations had much to do with the success attained. The time has passed when large pumpkins, big cattle and a fine show of live stock will attract the crowd. TVe want these but we want other attractions also. My opinión is that good races will do more to draw a crowd than any other one thing. If a good round sum is spent in fixing the track so that it will be inferior to none in the state and enough is raised to insure large enough purses to attraet some of the best horses on this circuit, I would be willing to guarantee a nice profit for the next fair, and for just as many fairs as are conducted on this -principie. Good racing ineetings in connection with good agricultural, stock and machinery exhibits is what is needed to make fairs a success nowadays."
