For the first time in many years the Clark County Fair this year was a success financially as well as entertainingly. The weather was ideal throughout the fair and the heavy rain the day before the opening laid the dust nicely and put the roads in tip-top shape.  Thursday the attendance was the largest ever known on the fair ground.  The races, exhibits and free attractions were never any better.  Moldenhauer’s flying machine was probably the biggest drawing card on the program, and although a disappointment to many in as much as Walter was unsuccessful in making actual flights, it was a satisfaction to all to see the machine and learn what a modern flying machine looks like.  Secretary Williamson and his assistants deserve great credit for doing their level best in making the fair a success.
