BD ITS FAULTS. Rigby, Not Half Equipped for the Fair, Ulde to Properly Handle the Numerals Feature& TIIJ Profit from This Year's Experience. Readville Circuit Meeting Will Begin Today. Jan! Star Performers Have Beet Booked for Competition. - Ito New England fair of 1897 is at an Fro m a financial standpoint the affair was a most pronounced success, for never i have I seen a grand stand so aloroughly filled three days in succescion as at Rigby last week. I It was simply packed. Even the im-reensedouble decker was not quite large enough. It seemed to me that almost every me bed a kick coming last week.. To iny mind there was but one fault, and that was that Rigby was not halt equipped for .a fair of such magnitude. To those who see the Rhode Island fate fair people handle more features in one day than Rigby did all the week $ad yet conduct everything like machinery It is patent that the system can be put la operation down east. As the thing runs now it is simply so far below any criticism that to waste any on itwould be nonsense. Naturally Frank Farnham, as the 1 manager of the fair, comes in for most of the roasting. This is as natural as 3 was unfair. Mr Farnham has im?reseed me with the feeling that he means to do nothing but what is fair, :ust and to the best interests of all. If anI man can show me how you can ten off a 10-hour program of horse. bicycle, exhibitions and cavalry drill between the hours of 1 and 6.30 I will patentee the respectful attention of the Rigby folks. t Those who know Pres Burnham of Rigby can fully realize what he will do , ender existing circumstances. He has lam found out how Rigby can make limey, and I miss my guess if he does 'Bet have Rigby in a position to handle !liven a bigger fair than that just conichided. The place was craimped for room last :1 ,teek, and there were errors of judgment at helped to confuse everybody. At :le same time I think the fair minded ICI have to say that Mr Farnham did ,im well as he could under the conditions. 1 There Is absolutely no good reason :,thy Rigby cannot conduct four times as inch at one time as they do now. They nu clay the inside field and make It the litest show ground in the country. They tan practically a level field, big enough i emeaeuver an army on. i There is space enough in between the f, ands and the track to put up a stage ltrall their special exhibitions, and the tat of a first-class four-lap bicycle t would not be a circumstance to a 'tre that can earn $30,000 to $30,000 in a ; It not blame the Rigby folks for try-to do the best they could without , :,Ating any more money into the plant t ,ht9 last week, but now they can have , iu excuse., for , whether it is a New ,' :gland fair or called by another name mr can get the people out. . The feeling toward features of the fair as funny. The horsemen shouted at , A bicyclists and said: "Now, wouldn't i 'make you sick to see them race." The t ,yelists couldn't see what fun there t t min the horse racing, and both agreed y, at when you had seen troop F parade 'was wearisome to look at them again. t :hue everything tended to make trouble ad. had not Frank Farnham's, haAr 4 t,en gray to start with, I would look k 'it it to change color after last week. , The situation was just this: The monument had only one race track to do 1 i much as a three-ring circus could do 3 an afternoon. They tried to please , 'yerybcly, and, like the old. man in the . iihle, they pleased nobody. Thus with the assurance that they Ill be better equipped another time I ave the last week's mistakes to correct '4 emselves. 1Ticket System Wrong.

That they will be better off there from every point of view no one doubts. They proved themselves wholly incapable, careless of the rights of the horsemen, and not possessed of the first rudiments of knowledge of the As to the racing, It was as good as it could possibly be under the circumstances. When horses get an hour or more, and sometimes two hours. between heats, racing becomes unworthy of the name. Yet, at that, it was pretty fair to see, when you saw It. The real good things of the week were the win of Louis Victor over the much-touted Tommy Britton; the defeat of the 2.07 class by Roan Wilkes, the win of Gazette over Retina, Woodshed, Alcyo and that band; the continued victorious career of Monopole; the killing of the talent by Town Lady, and the handy walk-in of Bismark. I have the satisfaction of being the only man, barring Charles Bassini, the owner of Louis Victor, who has thoroughly believed in the horse. I saw him go an easy mile, in the mud, in fourth horse place at Saugus, in 2.1514, and it would Le hard to make me believe it was not as good as 2.10. I set him to go there and he beat it last week, though the Rig-by Judges accommodatingly kept him in a slower class. I am going to increase the limit now, and set Victor to beat 208 acme day this year, bar accident. The talent played Prince Alert to beat Roan Wilkes. Vassar, Ben D, Esperanza and the rest of the 2.07 pacers, but NA, 11- liam Beggs made it a cake walk for the roan horse la straight heats. I do not think any man can drive Alert better 1 than Birney, but ho made a bad drive with the hobbled borse in the first heat of the race. It may be that it made no difference In the result, but Alert surely went as good as 2.05 in that first trip. I telieve Prince Alert has get to be good and at himself to race with Roan Wilkes any time he is as good as he is now. The stud can go in four or five as sure as he can pace in 2.10, and so sure a performer is hard to find. He races like a steam engine and acts very strong. Refina had an off week and did not race anything like she could at Old Orchard. Gazette won very handily, in-need, and proved himself a gallant old warrior. To my mind the hero of the race was I Woodshed. The pony had a cut in his foot that would have stopped a bulldog, but he tried as hard as if it was not there and went a grand race. Monopole won a cracking race, and while I have seen Mart Dernarest make many a cracking drive. I do not think he ever landed what looked more like a forlorn hope. Almost any one can win with the best one, but Mart pulled this off with what looked like a beaten horse. John Cheney had John H. Shultz over to see:Town Lady race, and the mare royally entertained her owner with a most decisive victory over so good a mare as Morale. Bismarck has bid adieu to the 2.20 trotting class. I hope the 2.15 fellows will have as short races as be has given the other lot. When they beat him they'll know they have been to the races. There was one thing done at Rigby that the management must be censured for. That was declaring off the 3-yearold class. An association that made so much money showed bad judgment in keeping the youngsters so long under suspense and 'then calling it -oft. But, you will say. there were only two or three to start. Sure enough, but then It was Rigby's fault there were not more. The races ought to have come off on Friday, when there would have been a big field. The worst of this is that the big New England association, "with fair round belly with good capon lined," does not get the afterwards of this, but the Rigby management, when they go looking for entries again. If Rigby is wise it will dodge the New England fair and run a fair of its own, and do not let the ideas of some of the solons from the rural districts lay down rules to ruin George Burnham's liberal ideas and fair play. Readville Circuit Meeting. Today begins the biggest race meeting ever held in this part of the country and one of the most notable ever held in any section. With infinite pains and an amount of hard work Sec Charles M. Jewett has carried out the plans of his directorate so thoroughly that I believe this meeting will make history of a sensational character. I have been asked what is the best day to go to Reedville. Looking over the card I am at a loss for an answer. They are all such great days that to pick any one specially would be to take a chance. Every day has its race of national interest, and there are several in which the home feeling will be very manifest. Now that Star Pointer has shown his ability to trim Joe Patchen. from the outside as well as he can from the pole I believe that there will be more interest in seeing the big horse try to beat two minutes than in a race with the black stallion. The horse has stepped a last quarter in 29 seconds and raced in 2.02 outside of a horse. Admitting that the pole mearie ometh 1 n g and that McCleary can take the chance of letting his horse all out in one mile. I look to see Pointer beat two minutes, under favorable conditions. this week. It is an awful task to set even the champion of the world at. and I think I hear Dr Bailey say, "You won't bet he'll do it." but if the atmosphere and track be as good as Star Pointer the two-minute horse will be a reality this day week. To New Englanders the race in which Bumps, Guinette. Heir-at-Law, Planet and Badge will be the central figures will overshadaw any race of the week. This is the race that may result in a hollow victory or a race that will live long after all the horses in it are gone. At first sight it would seem as if Bumps would walk away with it in straight heats. Thert comes the question. Can he go a faster race than Guinette? Good judges think it a shame that two such great horses should meet with the possibility of killing each other. and then having some horse that either can trim easily win the money away from them. I do not know of any race this year that will require such careful judging. It will not do to let Bumps and Guinette or either one of them lay up. nor would it be fair to let the others do so. I do not envy the men who will be in the stand, but from the caliber of the usual occupants of the Reedville box I have no fear of their ability. Reedville has an excellently advertised meeting, and I cannot see how it can fail to get all the money if the weather is favorable. Every one wi:1 wish it success. -- Meetings to Clash.

DAILY GLOBE-MONDAY. 'AUGUST 23. 1897. MANY NICE QUESTIONS. Receivers of the M. D. L. A. Have Them to Decide. List of Them Will be Prepared and Submitted to the Courts. Suzzested Liability of Members Doubted by Good Authorities. A great many people, members of the Massachusetts benefit life association, have been thrown into a state of excitement and apprehension at the suggestion that they will be called upon for money to enable the beneficiaries of dead members to get 100 cents on the dollar on their claims. A Globe reporter has asked several well-known lawyers for an opinion on this question, as well as several leaaing life insurance officers. and the replies were such that the members can afford to keep calm and refrain from adding to their sorrows brought about by their present losses. The receivers were asked if the members would have to make up the deficit to pay claims in full, and they said they did not know anything about it yet. There are a great many questions which the receivers will be called upon to set tie. and while one of the receivers is a lawyer of acknowledged ability, the ' points in dispute are so fine and nice , that a list of them will be drawn up - and submitted to the court as soon as this can be done. The moneys already In the possession of the company will require much legal consideration before they can be called assets of the association. and again there are funds paid to the company by ! members still living who believe that their claim for a return of a part of I this sum is just as good as the claim of the beneficiaries of dead members. For instance here is a man who in paying his dues or assessments or premiums. whatever they may be called, was exceeding liberal in his estimate of the company's solvency and integrity and said: 'I am away a great deal and am liable to forget when my pre' :Mums are due. Here is a sum of money to pay all the assessments for the next two years." This brings up the question whetter all this money belonged to the company as assets or whether a part of It was trust funds which should find no place in the company's statement of assets. and which should be returned to the person paying it just as conditional assessments were paid back or are to be paid back. There are not many who paid these sums in advance, but there are some 1 and the question will have to be decided and passed upon. Again. in the payment of the last assessment a great many people paid the call without stipulating that the money was to be refunded in the event of the company going under. Wiser ones sent their moneys conditionally, but It is a question to be decided by the courts whether the people Ignorant of business ways, and presumably the ones least able to afford it, will have to lose their money because they did not make this stipulation or whether all who paid the last call will get their money back. Then there are people, a great many hundred such. who held policies upon which they knew, and it was admitted, they paid more than was necessary. They always understood, and it was part of the plan of the policy. that the money they paid over and above what the insurance actually cost was placed on one side, and when by their increased age the time came that their insurance cost more than the sum they paid these surplus payments of earlier years were to be used to keep their payments down to the old sum. Now. the members who have surplus payments to their credit have an impression that when the division comes there must be some of these surplus payments for them, because the emergency fund was made up of these payments, and so they are more interested in this question than the one involving another assessment. to pay the death claims of others. and this matter will have to be passed upon by the court. On the question of the legality of an assessment to be Issued by the receivers a great deal can be said for the encouragement of those who would have to pay it. A great many assessment life companies have failed in Massachusetts, but there has never yet been an assessment made by receivers upon the members. who were already losers in more or less heavy amounts. The supreme court has never yet given a decision upon the matter. The case quoted by another paper last week was a New York case, where the law is different to Massachusetts, and the company, too, was an accident company and not a life insurance company. In the original draft of the letter issued by leading policy holders recently to Massachusetts benefit life members. urging them to pay up, there was a paragraph stating that since they would have to pay anyway they would do better to pay and save the company than to have the company go under and still have to pay. This paragraph was stricken out when the appeal came to a leading lawyer for signature, for it was his belief and that of many others that the members could not he called upon to pay after the company had failed. According to the attorney general. too. the members will not be held liable to pay assessments, for in his recent report to the governor he showed that the company was not a mutual company and the members had not the rights of MeTtlhers of a mutual company, for it was a t close corporation and the members had I had no right to elect officers or to have a voice in the management. It was shown that there were no memhers other than the original ones who signed the agreement, and so, even if it should be decided that the members of a mutual life insurance association were T liable for the full payment of death ceetificates, in all probability it would be ( shown by the court that this did not j apply to the Massachusetts benefit members. From out the much-criticised agreement there may yet come an ad- 1 vantage of which none of them have t dreamed. SKELETON FOUND DURUM Was Beneath Only 18 Inches of Earth, Beside the Highway. SANDWICH, Aug 22--A skeleton of a human being was found buried beside the main highway between here and Barnstable, at a point where the new state highway is being constructed. by Michael Canary, one of the workmen, yesterday afternoon. About 18 inches of earth covered the skeleton, which was quite well preserved. None of the residents of Scorton can account for the burial of any person at or near the place where the skeleton was found. To The Globe man Canary said that he examined the satill quite carefully, and that there was a crack in it about two inches in length on the right aide above the frontal bone. He could not toll whether the skull was that of a male or female. Nearly the complete skeleton was found. and from appearances it is likely had been buried for a period of at least 15 years. TOO MUM WATER FELL Outdoor Temperance Demonstration at Lowell a Failure.

Dr Libbey of Boston Has Invented a Means of Locomotion That Will Make Travel a Pastime, He Says. When old Mother Shipton prophesied that wagon a would go.without horses. It was thought that she bad got to tha limit of possibility. but the invention of Dr Hosea W. Libbey of this city surpasses the prophecy. Dr Libbers Invention will enable a man to take his morning bath and breakfast in Boston write his letters. then strap on his Ayers and reach Spring net I In time to have a chat with his friends before be eats his clutter at their expense. If he so desires. after. a quiet emoke, heean start again and be in New York in time for supper and the theater. br Libbey calls his invention a "foot cycle. and predicts that it will revolutionize traveling by making it a pleasure instead of a task. Un lika most inventors be does not grow enthusiastic over DR LIBRET'S "FOOT CTCLE." his idea. but looks at It calmly and with a. view to its practical value to thoso who will use it. In an interview he said: "We are is fast people and require to go at a pace that is beyond that of our forefathers. Our people are not satisfied to walk. The bicycle has helped in the direction of speedy travel. but the foot cycle is as far beyond the bicycle as that was beyond the old horse car. A Wel,- clist can run away from an electric car. and a man on the foot cycle can amuse himself by circling around a, bicyclist goingst full speed and then leave him out of eight in the rear. The motion of the foot cyclist is the long. sweeping. easy glide of an expert skater. It brings into piny all the modeles of the body without fatiguing them. There is nothing of the ungraceful stooping back and pumping foot motion of the bicycle. The rider atands erect. and with a slight forward incline sends him-Pelf ahead. Any one who has seen a body of skaters can picture the facile grace of the movement and the quiet exercise given to the muscles of the body. I would say that an experienced rider could make 30 miles an hour without much effort. Rough road would offer no obstacle. as the cyclist could pick his steps, to use a common expression. "Then for sociability ard pleasure. Two persons can go ride by tilde and converse in whispers. or if more affetionate can join hands as skaters short the foot cycle offers a combinatier. of speed. enjoyment and exerciee far beyond what any practical invention yet In use can give." The foot cycle consists of two rubber CUSIdOnt.11 wheels connected at esch axle by volute spHngs. thus the wheels are mounted. as it were. 1.11011 spring bearings. which, while the wheels are running upon the ground will allow the frame to yield whenever an obstacle is struck by either of the wheels. An adjustable foot rest is fixed on this frame. and hobis the foot of the rider firm. while further strength is given by a clamp that rune up and holds Oa trouser leg. GIVE3 A PURSE OP $1600.

Mr 3layo said: "We must not take the caricatures that we Zed tar the new American woman. She is the logical re-suit of nearly three centuries of the aried and profound education of all the varieties of women that have been drifted to thts new world. Every sort and condition of these women from the female African savage. the British gentle woman. the Puritan wife and daughter. the Irish and continental peasant woman of Europe has been essentially changed by the tremendous ochooling of the centuries. "Our characteristic young woman today enters life lifted above the old obscurity and Isolation of home life. relieved from drudgery end introduced to 10 new occupations by labor saving machinery not compelled to marry for support. but able to choose the time and the man. not the slave but the sovereign of social life. the power behind the throne in the new institutionzti church. inibiential as never before in education and all movements for the uplifting of society and government. "The test question now is. will she use all these great opportunities to do her obi work of representing Gods providence as the heart and soul of the home, ihe rk-hool. the church. society an the higher public opinion. or will she Insist on becoming the partner and rival cf man in every department of the outward life of the country.
