VERY NOTABLE INCREASE THE ATTENDANCE. IN Children's Day Found tbe Ground at Hazel Dell Well Filled With Spectators. INTEREST IN TBE EXHIBITION STILL GROWING. Features That Were Prominent Yesterday Scenes and lucldents Recorded by the Reporters. Yesterday was the third day of the Wilmington fair and the largest crowd of the week was in attendance. There must hare been 1 5,000 people on the grounds during the day. As the school children were given a holiday by the Board of Education, and owing to the fact that all children were admitted to the grounds free of charge, the small ones came in flocks and yesterday was rightly called Children's Day. As early as 9 o'tlxk in the morning men, women and children began to arrive in Socka. The train that left this city at 9.30 o'clock carried an immense crowd, mostly young people. Car after car was filled wit h happy-looking mothers and delighted children. The various trains reaching the grounds brought a large crowd of people, although the absence of citizens from down the state was again particularly noticeable. At 12 o'cleck the various exhibition halls were well filled with people admiring the various displays. All seemed to be in a happy frame of mind. The weather was excellent for a fair day, although slightly warm. SOME OF THE FCN. In the morning a large balloon was brought into the (rounds and stationed behind the main exhibition hall. A rope was attached to it and those who were willing to make an ascension were carried np in the air aboat forty feet. After the ascension had been made, balloons made to represent men, women and all kinds of animals were filled with gas from the large balloon and seat op into the air. They went up in the clouds and disappeared from sight. At 11 o'clock a polo game was participated in by two polo teams from Maryland. The game was very interesting and created no end ot excitement. The teams were: Reds F. O. Fifield, rather; Frank Adams, 2, and Frank Kenvon, 3. Bloes C. II. Stnadman, rusher; John Barney, 2; C Goodchiid, 3. The blues won the game by making two successive gnaj. Tbe day was a great one for the sideshows and "fakirs." During the first two davs of the fair they had hardlr made enongh monev to pay their expenses, but tbe rushing business they did yesterday made np for tbe first two days, rrora early morning nntil dark their tents and stands were surrounded with people of all sorts who couid not resist the temptation to pay 1 0 cents to get inside the tents to see the most wonderful thioga pictnred on the outside. After Getting inside it was found that the eight-eaded lady was sick and could not appear. The ten-legged horse was lame and the mermaid had aied that mornirg. The mammoth bull had lost 2,000 pounds during the night. The living human skeleton had grown fat and the water supply had given oat and it was impossible for the management to present to the audience a second Johnstown flood. Beside the side shows there are a number of fakirs selling all kinds of articles and playing all kinds of games. The "coon" who displays his head through a hole in a canvas banner to be hit "three times for a nickel" seemed to be a great attraction for the conn-try youths, and they punished him to their heart' content. The man with the dolls that could be knocked down three times fo 5 cents and a prize cigar, warranted to be a cigar, for "every time you knock the little baby down," did a rushing business and puiled in the nickels as fast as he could pick up the balls The cane stand.where yon can ring six canes for S cents, and,"every one ver ring 'syer own," was well patronized ail day, but no one seemed to have any canes on the ground. I.CSCH EON AT THE FAIR. Reed Birds, Hot Cakes and Other Delicacies. The ptetty, decorated apartment in the main building is every day viewed with pleasure bv thousands of visitors. Tbe room is prettily papered with paper of a light summer design, tne ceiling lam out in a square witb decorated corners of intertwining vines. A bronze border twelve mcbes in width adds to the beantv. The paper is furnished by Moys- ton & isrown, ot JNo. ((! Market street. A quartered heavy oak mantle piece heavily carveu in wnicu is set a ruunu mirror. x uis is a display of Bay lis & Calkins, of No. 71 Market street. A prettily arranged dining table in tbe middle of the room is the ditplay ot n uuam i.awcon. esteroay Auorey vanaever, wno has on exhibition the famous Hammond typewriter, secured about two dozen reed birds and he determined to take possession of Mr. Law- ton's table. The birds were cooked according to one of Mrs. Rorer'a recipes on the Gause patent stove, exhibited by Cleaver & Uearn- Then Aubrey Vandever invited a jolly party to a reed bird lunch. Delicious torn bread, coffee and biscuit were served by a corps of attentive colored waiters emploved by The William Lea and Sons Company." It is needless to say that the feast was devoured with relish. Mrs. Korer acted as hostess. The diners did not :n the least mind the gaping crowd of boys who stood around gazing on the scene. Then after the lunch had proceeded for while plates of Keeker's excellent buckwheat cakes were served in abundance. George rjiparKS Kept tne mncaers in a roarot iaugii ter by his witty remarks. A number of the ladies who were in the building could not fully understand the scene. One of them stopped and leaning over the slender rope said to a female companion: "This is a nice display and besides the beauty of the room, you can get lunch here. It is practical as well as ornamental." Her remarks were said out loud and after staring at tbe diners for fully live mi notes she moved on utterly unaffected by the quiet laughter of the luncher. Another elderly lady slowly approached the room and leaninsr over tne rope sne asked Mr. jNioyston in confidential tones what the coffee was selling at per cup. POULTRY SHOW. Some of Those Who Secured Prizes for Their Kxhibits. The awards of premising in the poultry department were made yesterday afternoon. Tbe poultry show is in the basement of the new exhibition building that has been constructed out of the materials of Washington market house that was removed from Fourth and Washinjon streets. It is in the ..coolest and, so far as that goes to make comfort, tbe most comfortable place within the fair grounds. The increased attendance was unpleasantly noikeihle ia the crowd that thronged through the aisles of the ponltry and dog snows. These two apartments were closely adja- S. & O. H. H. Best Route to New York Excursion tickets, good 10 days. for S5.00. 1 a ' 011161 an crowd continn-1 ""'J ""uuiiug np tnroBgn me aisles made it I extremely uncomfortable at times. The passing people, the persistance of many .tm in attempts to handle the fowls and fondle the dogs, made both fowls and dogs nervous and irritable. The dogs barked, whined and growled. The chickens crowed and cackled. The old people talked in voices toned from the sound of ease arum to the screech of a life, and the younger ones cried, laughed or screamed as humor compelled. These voices were all to be heard at ouce not only for once, but contituously. And vet people said it was a nice show and a pleasant place. There were forty-cine exhibitors represented in the poultry show and there were many times that number of exhibits. Many of the varieties of domestic fowls were very beautiful. The d splay of pigeons contained some rare and curious "birds. The awards among the pigeon fanciers were not made yesterday. Among the larger fowls there were chickens from the tiny bantams in all colors to the big fluffy Cochins. There were the smooth, rich colored game fowls and the ragged-headed Polish bearded fowls. There were black, bronze and white turkeys, gray and white geese and the ever-nodding Muscovy duck. The chickens were all called by ftney names, and the hardy old dunghill chicken did not seem to have a relative in all tbe crowd. The first coops in the poultry show contained cats and kittens. There were black, Angora and Maltese kittens. There were a cage of rabbits and one cat. Herbert Majne was given a first premium for black kittens; A. A. Cobb fur Angora kittens, and J. G. i'isbcr on Maltese kittens. 1 he cat was marked No. 28, the onlv instance in this department where the exhibitor did not label his property with his name. Following are some of' the premiums awarded: II. M.

James Watson, sport :ng editor of the Philadelphia Tress, arrived early in the afternoon and the judging of dogs was com menced promptly at 3 0 clock. lbe various canines were placed in an apartment and their fine points were examined. Of course some of the exhibitors were not pleased with the decisions of Mr. Watson, but in the main they were satisfactory. The jadgiug was witnessed by a large crowd. And, indeed, this show has been one of the mot attractive features of the fair. Frank K. Carswell bad on exhibition of eight canines, all 'collies. They were tine looking animals and they frisked" around in a lively manner. 31ajor Jum, in particular, agitated himself. Mr. Carswell's exhibit was a central attraction aud was admired by crowds during the day. In the collecton was Tody Mall and Rutland Miss, both of w hich have been in the l'hiladelphia dog shows. Mr. Carswell's imported bitch, Maid, sired by Champion Wolf, received a great deal of attention. Among the not6d canines on exhibition was Boss's Lady Clare, of the Kensington kennels. This is a noted dog and a winner at all the leading bench showa. Her pedigree is of the best, she being sired by Win-chell's champion Bsos. The large noble-looking St. Bernard, which weighs fully 175 pounds, is much noticed. This was Celtic Hector. English setter Magnolia has won the prize in the puppy classes at the Rochester bench. Irish setter Nellie is a great championship prize winner, having won premiums in all classes at New York, Philadelphia, Boston and wherever else shown. Basset hound Bobbette is also a great winner, having won lastvear seven tirst prizes in seven shows and is now in the championship clas. Pug Othello, by Dr. Coger, is much ad mired by the ladies, and during the last show season he earned his entry into the championship class by winning the necessary four purse prizes at snows held unuer American Kennel Club rules. Bull terrier Baron ha? won a large num ber of prizes, and any ore by closely ex amining him ccuia notice tne aitierence between him and tbe ordinary terrier or pit stock bull terrier. The bull dog Glenwood is a famiiiar sight at all the leading shows where he often takes the blue, red or orange ribbon, denoting first, second or third prizes. Bedhngton terrier, Punch, ha9 come out first at shows at Elmira N. V. The Irish terrier, Judy, has often bow wowed her respects to the judge for having the blue ribbon placed npon her. The attention of the ladies is called to the Prince Charles spaniel, Vixen, as he is a great favorite with all who have been there. Tbote who are in the fashion and have a hankering for fox terriers should take a look at General Grant and Shepherd, who is a close pecond. For those who are fond of hearing the tongue of the beagle in chasing the cottontail should visit the beagles. Grouse, among tbe setters, while not so much a bench sjaow dog, is a great field trail wisner. It wet he who showed so much politeness by shaking hands with all who spoke to him.

Chief Justice Comegys was one of the die tinguisbed guests of the dog show yesterday. Frank R. Carswell has the fiaest and largest exhibits of dogs in the show. Tatuall's creamery is doing a flourishing business. Two men are kept constantly handling the white fluid to the thirsty pedestrians of tbe main building. Yesterday should rightly be called "Country Day." The displav of De Soto Brothers' cigar manufactory is one of the finest at the fair. The stand is nicely trimmed and is surrounded by a corps of accommodating attendants. They have received some new brands. The girls at the fair outnumber the boys two to one. The ladies at the canned goods stand are very accommodating. They do their utmost to please the spectators. George D. Sparks, of the firm of Brown & Company, flurists, is in attendance at the excellent floral display of that firm. He is attentive to the spectators and well posted on tioral matters. A little girl who was viewing the floral display yesterday was heard to say: "Oh, mamma, have they got many dead people under tbe flowers?" The jewelry display of Millard F. Davis in tbe mam bunding 19 among tne best. 111s ex hibit is very fine and is arranged very neatly, attracting a good share of attention, lie gives thousands of cards away daily. Heckei's buckwheat booth is besieged by a hungry crowd the entire day. Old men, old women, big boys, little boys, big girls, little girls, and in fact everybody finds a secluded nook to eat hot buckwheat cakes. Mayor Harrington was on the grounds all afternoon and was so busy in laying his plans to stop fraud that he did not enter the grand stand. Hyatt's Military Band rendered some very fine music in the grand stand yesterday and were loudly applauded after playing the "Razzle-dazzle" march at the conclusion of the second heat of running races by the Providence Riding Club. The march was very appropriate, as the horse having won the heat was comically enough named Razzle-dazzle. The small goat carts create much merriment. The drivers are very reckless in their driving. One of the teams knocked a little girl down and she sprained her ankle. Some of the young lady exhibitors to the fancy department are much dissatisfied with the awarding of premiums yesterday afternoon. One of them was overheard by a reporter of The MoRNiKtt News to say: "I think the judges of (this department are very partial. Do you see that pin cushion? Now that isn't half as good as mine, and still it took the first premium, while ray pin-cushion is superior to it in every stitch and is not mentioned. 1 don 1 tains tne juages act squarely." Among the exhibitsof horses which is attracting attention is the beautiful chestnut stallion Prince Ashton, exhibited by James C. McComb of Claymont The stallion was foaled on May 6, 1856, and was bred by Charles Bockman on tbe famous Stony Ford farm. The stallion has a wonderful pedigree. The stallion is of commanding appearance; beautiful chestnut sorrel with three white feet and faint strip in the face. Although the animal has good trotting abilities he has never been handled for speed. The animal is a good representative of the Kentucky Prince family. The merry-go-rounds are well patronized. Fell & Peoples have one of the finest displays of hardware in the main building. They also exhibit a house painted with Weth-erill paints, for which thev are asrents. j j j . A nackman s&med Pyle, living over Third street bridge, got tangled np as be entered the fair grounds yesterday afternoon, and was with mns h trouble released from his obnoxious position by OiEcer bherer. After being derj. f straightened he got angry at Sherer and threatened to horse whip him if he lai 1 his hands on the horses again. A boy named Williams fell in an iron trough back of tbe main building yesterday morning and after getting a thorough wetting stood in the sun oyer an hoar to dry his clothing. A young man named Leech, living at Eleventh aud French streets, was ejected from the grounds during the races yesterday afternoon by Officer Johnson, for interfering with tbe race track. The country boy with his best "gal" cams to the grounds early in the morning aud lived in their carriages ail day. A small fox terrier pup belonging to Elam Page of Port Peon was stolen yesterday morning from the cage during the absence of Mr. Page. One of the most obliging attendants at the fair is MisK Agnes Weldie, who is in charge of the telephone exchange at the entrance to the main exhibit building. James O. McCormick, the superintendent of the culinary department, is oue of the most bothered men on the groun.'s. He is asked a thousand questions a day and answers them all cheerfully. Entries for To-day.

Sergeant Blackburn had a lively chase after a "phoney ring" fakir, who wa trying to work people at the Market street station of the Baltimore and Ohio raiiroad, shortly after 6 o'clock last evening. The sergeant watched the fekir approach several men and then went to arrest him. He had only laid bis hand on the fakir, when he dashed from the sergeant and ran np the railroad at break neck rate, closely followed by the sergeant. On reaching the Madison street station he got behind a coal car, but after lew minutes dodging he was captured and taken to the police station. He gave his name as John Fraum. A ring found on Lim was taken to Samuel II. Bavnard who said it was worth S8. John T. Camden, a tramp, was arrested at Front and Market streets about 8 o'clock last night by Officer Burroughs for trying to sell "phoney rings" to Michael Lally who lives at No. 319 West Front street. When Camden was searched at the police station eight of the rings were found in his pocket. After he was plated in a cell he tried to escape through a register in the rear of his cell.

Ilaca Details: the Over 13,000 people witnessed the races at the Wilmington fair grounds yesterday. The attendance was tbe largest since the fair has been open. The weather was beautiful, not to warm and not to cool. Tbe track was in the best of condition and the horses ahow.d up ia good form. The grand stand was crowded and the ti?ld had the largest crowd of the week, being literally covered with people snd carriages. The fence around the inside of the tract was lined with boys, who shouted themselves hoarse whenever a winner went under the wire. The canvas awning placed over the front part of the erand stand kept the enu from reaching the spectators and made a great improvement. There were fuiir races on the programme, one the unfinished 2. 4U cbvts trotters Irom the previous day. The races were not so good as on the first two days, although the second race for 2 jO class trotters proved to be very interesting, but the race was spoiled in the last heat by an accident that happened to the favorite horse, which shut him out, kept him from winniDg the race, and injured his legs. Lightning, Jr., who was a dead sure, took tbe lead in the fourth heat and when the three - quarter - pole was reached he was fully thirty lengths in tbe lead of Cimarron, who was second horse and had two heats to his credit. In rounding the last turn, coming into the home-stretcb, he was going at a Iterrilic gait, t ne of his toe weights, which weighed eight ounces, came off and completely over-balanced him. He fell against the inside fence, breaking it down and throwing bis driver into the middle of the track. The horse jumped to his feet, got through the fence and ran wildly about the field, breaking the sulky into a hundred pieces and severely injuring his legs. He was finally caught by some attendants and taken to tbe stables. Cinnamon came on and won tbe heat and race. If Lightning, Jr., had not met with the accident both of the other horses would hare been distanced. The first race for 2.40 class trotters, unfinished from the previous day, was won by Jewell, who won tbe first heat, making; u. pretty and exciting race throughout, winning from Peter Whetstone by a neck. In the second race, for 2.50 trotters, there was four starters. The horses started several times before they received the word. Newsboy, who drew the pole, got off in the lead, but was quickly collared by Cinnamon who made a pretty race with Lightning, Jr. Both horses kept together all the way around, Cimarron winning the heat and distancing Newsboy. In the second heat Cimarron took the lead, and closely followed by Lightning, Jr. Cinnamon succeeded iu capturing tbe heat by a length. The third heat was won by Ligbtninr, J,, who was the best horse in the "race. In the fourth and last heat Lightning, Jr , got away in the lead and the other horses were nowhere. At the three qaarters he had a lead of twenty lengths when the accident already described befell him. Cinnamon won tha heat and race with Sanborn second. In tbe third race live horses started. Soto won three successive heats without any trouble. In the fourth race, running, mile heats, Delaware, a Media horse, made a show of the other starters, getting away ahead and stopping for them to come up. He won the race hands down. HEATS IX DETAIL.
