ST. LOUIS FAIR EXHIBITS. Entries Are Coming In a Most Gratifying Wanner. One of the interesting features of the St. Louis Fair, which opens on Oct. 5, will be the pony exhibit In the amphitheater on the last day. There are in St. Louis a large number of handsome ponies owned by the sons of wealthy citizens, and many of these have been entered for the competition. The premiums are, as in all competitions liberal and are for riding, driving and matched ponies. The crowds of ladles constantly in the office of the Secretary at 609 Olive street, entering articles of fancy work show that the textile department will be as well filled as it has always been, while the entries for the fruit and floral departments are more numerous than ever. Many farmers from a distance have written to obtain space In the Fruit Department. Bowling Green, Ky., will be well represented there. Tbe polled Durhams which J. H. Miller of Mexico has shown at Columbus, O. , and at the Indiana State Fair will be an interesting exhibit in tbe cattle department. Tbe entries in this section are numerous and of large herds. Horses are also coming in for entry. To-day two lots of eighteen each were entered by Oskaloosa (Io.) and Springfield (111.) breeders. The smaller live stock will be concentrated this year, the pens for pigs having been moved with this object la view. The work on the new pens is nearly completed. Owing to the fact that the Odd Fellows had possession of the grounds on Tuesday, exhibitors had done little towards preparing their spaces op to that time. The work, has Broadway, Washington Av. and St. Charles St. now actively begun, and when the school children visit the grounds on tbe opening day they will find a great show of animals, machinery, fruits and fancy goods In perfect order. Notice to Depositors. A good location for depositors Is the Chemical National Bank. The location, Sixth and Locust streets. Is central and accessible, and the facilities and accommodations offered by the bank, to large and small depositors, for the rapid and satisfactory transaction of all banking business Is unsurpassed. News of the Theaters. The standing joke of Jenkins about tbe lady who looked charming and created a sensation in a graceful Psyche knot and a lovely set of Jewelry finds actual realization in the first act of "Cleopatra" at the Olympic. Cleopatra, however, in the barge scene has the moral advantage of Iza In the studio scene, because she wears a pretense of clothes In tbe shape of a belt and a gauze tea gown. The result, however, is even more startling, as Cleopatra is In no hurry to remove herself from exhibition. Miss Davenport does excellent work as Cleopatra, and the performance Is satisfactory throughout. The production must be classed as one of the most goreeous and complete that have been given in St. Louis. Tbe storm scene is a wonderful effect, and despite tbe uncomfortable weather the success of the engagement is assured. "Little Puck" Is filling an unusually fine engagement at tne Grand. The unctuous humor of Frank Daniels and the clever wit of his company keep tbe audiences thoroughly entertained. Tbe performance Is enlivened by a number of new specialties, and a group of pretty women in fetching costumes is an attractive feature. The "New Fantasma" gives Pope's an attractive estlvlty entertainment. The production Is full of amusing tricks, scenic illusions, handsome tableaux and pleasing specialties. Admirers of stage realism find a pleasing exponent of it in tbe rallrop d melodrama, "The Fast Mall," which is running at Hav-lln's this week. The Creoles give a pleasing olio of genuine negro minstrelsy and burlesque at the Standard. The advance sale of seats for "Alabama" opened at the Olympic to-day with a demand which assures a splendid bearing lor Mr. Thomas' brilliantly successful play. The engagement promises to be one of the most notable that have occurred In this city. The enthusiasm of the critics and people in cities in whlcn "Alabama" has been seen has been such that requests to tbe management have been of dally occurrence for a return engagement in their respective towns. One correspondent writes: "It is long since so genial and generous a play has wielded the sympathies of all sorts of people. It is a stroke of nature that makes akin the people of widely separated sections. The cast will become memorable. Whatever the fortunes of tbe play may be. It is not likely that future changes will ever improve on the 'Squire Tucker of Mr. Chas. Harris or tbe Col. Moberly of Mr. E. M. Holland, and last, but not least of all, the Col. t Preston of Mr. J. A. Stoddard. These were, par excellence, features of tbe pefonnance. The gentle Carey Preston of Agnes Miller will be remembered, as also the broad manliness of Maurice Barry more and tbe exqulte repressed art of May Brookyn. Taking it all .through, the characters in "Alabama" have been enacted by tbe members of tbe Palmer company In such a manner as to render comparisons almost invidious." Beginning next Sunday nlxht and continuing throughout the entire week, with tbe usual Wednesday and Satarday matinees, two of the leading comedians ot the country, Messrs. Charles Reed and Wm. Collier, will appear at the Grand in the latest farce comedy success, "Hose and Hoes." Tbe play is credited with being a remarkable success.

Broadway, Washington Av. and St Charles St quality of being new. It is said to be a farce, comedy In the true sense of the term, and free from any melodramatic nonsense. As Lawyer Charlie Hoss and Judge Willie Hoss, Keed and Collier are given ample scope to display that humor which has placed them high up in the ranks of comedians. Their Jokes are said to be new, and their songs original. Every opportunity is taken to introduce specialties, many of them pronounced exceptionally good. The company is of exceptional size and strength and the costumes pretty and elaborate. Pope's wlil have a new and original farce-comedy next week with the strange title of "The Devil's Editor."
