To-day will open up the first annual October meeting: of the Logansport Trotting Association and from all present indications the meeting throughout- will be a howling success. Every .stall, ovory nook and cranny and every available corner of the association grounds is filled with horses. It is doubtful if one hundred would be within the limit of the number of horses which have been entered at this great meeting-. And there are some mighty good horses, too; horses which promise some very interesting races, races which you will not like to miss. To see -these races to a finish you will do well to attend every afternoon. The association has very considerately put the price of admission down to 25 cents to attract as big crowds as possible to the first of the series of meetings. They have also succeeded in getting the hack drivers under their thumb, and hack fare from Maple Grove will only be 5 cents. The program for today's races is as follows: TWO VJJAH OLD TROT. Sombrlel.

The iqcai entertainment committee of the .Baptist church have found quarters for more than" 300 visiting Baptists this week. Besides this number there are probably a hundred visitors who are- gaests of friends in the city and of whom the committee have kept no record. Therefore ii is not unlikely that.there were in the city last night more than 400 visiting Baptist brethren attracted here by tne 60th annual convention of the State Baptist Association. To-day and tomorrow will be'the "big days" of the convention arid 1 It is thought that a. hundred, mare visitors will arrive today on accounf'Ofvthese meetings, so if the census of Logensport were to be taken this week the city would be gainer thereby to the extent of 500 additional population. The Baptist church, has a large seating capacity, probably as large as any In the city, but it is inadequate to the needs of the convention. Last night the house was packed, aisles, rostrum and all being filled, yet nearly as many left [ unable .to gain admission, as found seats within. The managers are now regretting that the rink or some large hall was not secured for'the convention, but it is thought by -using the auditorium of the church, lecture room, class rooms, etc., for the several purposes of the association, that accommodations may prove sufficient. Yesterday morning's session was opened by a, devotional meeting of half an hour led by Rev. U. W. Hicks. After this .there was a pastor's conference, a symposium on "Our Associational Opportunities," participated in by Revs. C. M. Carter, C. F. Dams, A. D. Berry and S. C. Fulmer. This number consumed the full time and was followed by a- paper on "The State of Religion," by .Rev. N. C. Smith, of Washington; which met with a general and open discussion. The paper on "The Social Conditions of the Working Man," by Rev. Addison Parker, of LaPorte, was the last number before noon, the extension of the program crowding out the discussion of this paper which hac! been announced. The afternoon session was opened by a 30 minutes devotional service conducted by Rev. E. G. Shouse. of Marion,' following which Eev. W. F. Taylor, of Indianapolis, read a paper on "The Liturgy and Cathedral" which evoked an interesting discussion. At 3 o'clock occurred the annual election of officers with the following result: President—Rev. B. F. Cavans, D. D., of Peru. Vice Presidents—Rev. L. Kirtley, D. D., of Terre Haute, Rev, J. K. Howard, of Libonia. Recording .Secretary—Rev. A. B. Cbaffee, of South Bend. Treasurer—W. H. Perkins, of Indianapolis. . • Following the, election of officers the business session wa.s continued by the rendering .-of special reports including the report of Superintendent of Missions'. Rev. A. Ogle, and report of Treasurer Perkins. In this connection addresses on reports were made as follows: "State Missions Among Missionary Enterprises," Rev. S. •&. Clarke; "How to Help Weak Churches." Rev. S. H. Northrop and "Our Eastern Desert, or Destitute Fields" by Rev. Allen Hill. The chair then appointed the various standing committees for the year and the session then adjourned until evening. As above stated the evening session attracted a crowd which filled the church to the lobby and placed standing room at a premium. This session was made the occasion of the welcom- FREE S WEEK ONLY.

A manager who expends thousands of dollars in order that nothing will be neglected tbat might add to the enjoyment of his patrons certainly 'deserves success, and as a rule, he generally'gets it, if the public \vould endeavor to discriminate between responsible companies and those who possess no stability, There are plenty of good shows, but unfortunately, there are hundreds which are utterly devoid of merit. Now, anyone can tell at a glanus if they see a magnificent new store with massive plate glass windows, that it necessarily calls for a great outlay of money to erect it, and the stock in such a store is generally of the finest. The same line of reasoniag- T,O theatrical enterprises; for instance, when you see a show billed in the lavish and expensive manner that characterizes "A Kentucky Girl" company you can rest assured that there is money and push back of it. The beautiful artistic pictorial lithographic work, is the finest and the costliest on the road. No lithographing firm would attempt that kind of work without having ten thousand dollars down to insure them from loss. This is only one of the many items of a great show, and the same good taste which provides this beautiful printing will neglect no other department of the show. So there is not a doubt that the production of "A Kentucky Girl" at Dolan's opera house to-mor-ow evening will be the biggest show of the season. Obituary.
