COUNTY FAIR OPENS WITH EXHIBIT HALLS CROWDED – That war and drouth haven’t cast any stumbling blocks in the way of Whatcom County’s industry and products, is proved emphatically by the Fifth Annual County Fair which opened Tuesday and is continuing this week.

Wilson Stewart, county sheriff, was in Lynden Tuesday arranging to police the Fair Grounds with a large force of deputies.

Through the efforts of G. A. Brown, who was forced to discontinue his Lynden-Westminster stage run this summer because the Lynden customs station was not a port of entry, a deputy collector and inspector of customs will be stationed at this point whenever he decides to continue his line. This is an important victory for Lynden, as the new ruling will make it unnecessary to travel to Sumas or Blaine for inspection.

The transfer of all the Lynden property of George and Bert Bostwick is exchange for 900 acres of wheat land in Adams County was an important transaction of the week. The property at Sixth and Front St., the Feed Mill, and farming land was included in the deal.

Ray W. Felton, publisher of the Mt. Vernon Herald, one of the cleanest and best weeklies of the State, visited in Lynden Tuesday.

Sumas is planning a big industrial fair for Friday and Saturday, Oct. 15 and 16. The Sumas committee promises an excellent program of sports, and is now at work gathering exhibits.

One hundred and five members of the Knights of Pythias lodge gathered Monday night in the lodge rooms for degree work and to enjoy a splendid banquet. Guests were present from Chilliwack, Sumas, Blaine and Bellingham.
