A Two-mile Foot Race to Be One of the Features of Special Interest—Other Notable Events. The county fair opens next week Wednesday and in spite of world's fair, state fair, hard times, and everything combined, promises to be the most entertaining and best of any yet given. The special attractions are certainly ahead of anything before advertised, while there is every reason to believe that the grain, fruit, and stock exhibit will excell those of previous years. All premiums being paid in full in cash makes securing them more of an object than when money was plentier, and everybody who has anything to exhibit can well aiTord to get a prize. Among the special features of the fair will be the TWO-MILE FOOT KACE. Eugene Tollier and D. B. Avey, who trained for tho five-mile race at Indianapolis, will run a two-mile race Friday afternoon. The contest is open to all, but those two will go in any event, and as they have never run together it will bo a very interesting race. Both have entered into it inaspiritof helping furnish amusement for the visitors, and not out of rivalry. They wore in fine training and being beaten out of their run at the army meeting they will have it out hero at home. They both have made fast time in their training and the contest will be a close one. AN EXPERT STOCK JUDGE. The big exhibit of horses made last year on account of bringing in an outside judge caused the fair directors to include all the stock exhibits this year, and an expert outside stock man will award all the stock premiums. He will be unacquainted with the county stock and will be a new man to the horses also. This ought to bring out the biggest exhibit of hogs, sheep, and cattle as well as of horses ever seen in this scfelion of Iowa. THE HOESE RACES. Thursday afternoon the programme of horse racing will include a 2:40 trotting race for $100, a free-for-all running race for S150, a county trotting race open to horses owned in the county that have never beaten 2:50 for $50, and a two-year-old trotting race for $30. > Friday afternoon there will be a free- for-all trotting race for $150, a running race open to horses owned in the county, thoroughbreds barred, for $25, and the novelty race, walking, trotting and running, for $25. A NEW HOHSE CLASS. The following new list of premiums is offered this year for general purpose horses. It was left out of the premium list by mistake: Host stiilliou, .3 years old or over. .$0 00 S5 00 Host colt, either sex, 2 years old... ;i 00 200 Best colt, either sex, 1 year old 3 00 1 00 Best mure, 4 years old or over 500 :t 00 lleat mare,.'! years old ;!00 200 THE FAMOUS TROTTING DOG. One of the greatest novelties ever seen in this section will be the trotting dog, which proved the best feature of the state fair attractions. It is a red Irish setter, and has the fastest dog record. Its driver is a little girl, three years old, and she with her little sulky and the the dog make an interesting sight. The dog will trot Thursday afternoon. Thursday is children's day and all under 15 years are admitted free, TWO-MILE BICYCLE RACE. Thursday afternoon there will be a two-mile bicycle race for a purse of $30 divided $15, $10, and $5, open to all without entrance fee. Six entries are already sure, three from Elmore. Riders from all over the county will take part. AT THE OPERA HOUSE. During the fair the Corse Payton iomedy company will play four nights, beginning next Wednesday evening and giving a matinee on Saturday afternoon. This company .played in the Gtrand opera house in Dos Moines last 'all and ranks well up among comedy jompanies. Arrangements are being made to got trains after the theatre at night, but no definite announcement jan bo made till next week, IN GENERAL. The owner of a phonograph into which anyone can talk and then have ais speech repeated, is arranging to :mve it on exhibition. Also the proprietor of a side show with a Mexican ivild man, the usual merry-go-rounds, nigger babies, etc., will be on hand. A good band will be in attendance, Altogether it promises to be a big fair, and everybody should plan attend and help keep our society in the front rank. PEBSONAL MOVEMENTS. Mrs. W. H.
