Free Fair to be September 3 and 4
The several committees are working on the Free Fair of Caddo Township to be held September 3rd and 4th. If their plans mature the Fair will be a most excellent attraction. The features will be educational altogether. No commercial amusement features will be allowed, it being thought the people have a more necessary use for what little money they possess. Get your exhibits ready now, for the Fair. The prizes, while not large, are worth working for.

Caddo Free Fair was Huge Success
The Caddo Township Fair held last Monday and Tuesday in the Schwartz and Baxter buildings, was a success from every standpoint. The exhibits were largely attended from the first day and in the exhibits there was a considerable improvement in both quality and number.
Miss Nina Craig was the judge of the women’s’ exhibits and Mr. C. E. Murray of Tishomingo was the judge of the remainder of the fair. Both gave fair and impartial judging to all exhibits shown. They reported considerable competition in quite a few of the exhibits and the quality shown was far the best that has ever been shown in our fair. Committees in charge are well pleased with the outcome of every department of the fair. Begin to plan your exhibits now for next year. (can’t read remainder of article)

Township Fair is in Full Sway Now
Caddo Township Fair opens today in fully sway. The main exhibits are in the Baxter building downtown, where headquarters have been established. Mr. C. A. Wood, teacher of Vocational Agriculture, is in charge of the exhibits and arranges things just right.
People began to bring exhibits early in the day and by night a full exhibition was expected. The cattle and livestock will not be exhibited until Saturday. They will be stationed at the Lyon-Gray lumber yard where there is shade and protection from the sun and rain.
Be sure to come to Caddo both days. Bring the family; let them enjoy the educational features of the fair. You can see good articles and know how to better your own.
There will be no raucous carnival, no distracting elements at this fair. It is purely educational and it is entirely free. Free from graft, free from questionable shows, free from admission charge, free in every way. Come to Caddo.

Township Fair was Best Ever in Caddo
The Caddo Township Fair last Friday and Saturday was by far the best ever held in Caddo. The exhibits were many, varied, and of excellent quality. The attendance was good both days; the folks came to learn.
More than 100 animals were on exhibition Saturday and they were as good as are to be found anywhere.
The ladies department showed much excellence. Carrol’s Chapel and Midway schools had excellent displays that indicated progressive communities. The 4-H displays indicate an enlightened youth.
There were 401 exhibits a the Fair, divided as follows: Agriculture 90, Horticulture 27, Livestock 70, Home Demonstration 61, Miscellaneous 80, Poultry 31, 4-H club 42. So you see, the winners in each division had lots of competition and a blue ribbon really means something.
Mr. Wood took a large part of the exhibits to the County Fair now going on and we look for Caddo to win some prizes. Much of the success of the Fair was due to the efforts of Prof. C. A. Wood, teacher of Vocational Agriculture who had charge of the exhibits.
