Stock Show


Fine Exhibits Displayed and Large Crowd Attends.

June 10, 1913

Dazey's Third Annual Stock show was pulled off last Friday and was a success in every particular. There was a larger number of entries than at any previous show and a larger crowd attended than ever before.

As the object of the show is to encourage the raising of better stock in this vicinity all entries were restricted to pure bred sires.

Every farmer and stock raiser should make an effort to raise better stock and this stand taken by those in charge of the show was a wise move.

The day's events were pulled off in the order advertised and all in attendance enjoyed a fine time.

The following persons entered the winning stock:
