Miss Jeanette Hunter won first prize at the Iron county fair this year on a group of oils which she exhibited, and at the upper peninsula state fair held last week, a landscape in oils netted her first prize again.
She is a novice at the work, having taken it up less than two years ago. She has taken only a few lessons, those from Mrs. John Morgan of Iron River.
