HE WEATHER TO BLAME, 'he Elements Upset the Comity Failon Friday, -when the Prospects Were Brightest. Tho county fair opened Thursday r ith the brightest prospects in the istory of the association. It opened 'riday with about the worst. The fall ain caught it in tho middle and where ne day was the biggest crowd that ver gathered on tho grounds, tho next ere to be seen only a few straggling fficlals getting the stock premiums warded. Tho only consolation is that lumboldt, Emmetsburgr, and Mason City were served alike, as all hadithoir airs on the same days. The attendance Thursday was much arger than on any previous day at any air. And the prospect was that an ven larger number would come Fri- ay. As a result tho association would Jfter many years have been squarely on ts feet, with money aluad. As it is it will have to begin over again next •ear. All premiums, however, will be mid in full, as advertised. The entries were larger than ever be- ore, and in all the departments the ex- libit was more complete. Every sto( "< epartment had a good display. Even more horses were in than were shown a year ago, while in cattle, hogs, sheep md poultry the improvement was marked. In grains and vegetables no jetter display could bo seen at the state air. In fruits the display was poor, as t is everywhere, and the fancy depart- nent was not very full. But as a whole he fair was much the best \ve have yet lad as a presentation of the county's reductions. The stock judge, B. J. Moore of VTissouri Valley, has been for several ears superintendent of horses at the tate fair, and is an experienced man in verything pertaining 1 to fairs, and he poke in high terms of praise of our ex- ibition. Ho p_assed on all the stock. laving an outside judge has proved a great improvement for the fair, and it vill be continued. Thursday's Programme. Besides the horse races a two-mile ricycle race was run between E. Hel- sosted of Elmore and J. A. Hamilton of Algona and won by the former. Also half mile foot race in which T. W. Butler, Geo. Coffon, Frank Burt, Fred €uhn, Guy Scott, and L. E. Sherwood jntered. It was a lively contest, Sher- vood winning by a few feet, Scott and £uhn coming in evea behind him. In the county trotting race tho en- ries were: " Darkey," C. A. Brewster; " Fritz," H. A. Lillibridgo; " Wai aceK.," E. G. Bowyer; "California Boy," O. W. McMurray, and " Prince W.,"Geo. Holloway. "Wallace K." won hree straight heats easily, the best ime being 2:55J. In tho second heat ' California Boy" ran and smashed his sulky and dropped out, and before tho ihird heat " Darkey" got kicked up at ihe barn and was disabled. "Prince W." took second, and "Darkey" and 'Fritz" divided third money. It was a good race between them for second place. There were eight entries in thecoun- ;y running race, made by CoU'en of Bart, Talhnan of Bancroft, Wright of ledyard, Potter of Cre&co, Patterson of Lu Verne, Corey of Wesley, and Caron of Algona. A protest against the Ledyard horse was filed, but it went in he race and came out first easily. The Bancroft horso won second and tho Wesley horse third. Through a rniss on the part of the riders several horses went around before they wore given tho word. The best race of tho day was the 2:40 irot. There were four startSrs: "Don Lewis," owned by F. Gillet;'-"Belle Sprague," C. Laughlin; "O, K.,"G. C. Thomas; "EvaT.,"B. F. Smith. "Eva T." is the John Patterson mare, which was raised in Algona, and was the speediest stepper, but the other three norses had evidently combined to shut tier out. "Don Lewis" took cmo heat and "O. K." one, but "EvaT." was given the third heat by tho judges and won ihe fourth and lifth and tho race, " O. K." second, "Don Lewis" third. itnow it is best for me to make the large places when I can, for there is more money in it for me, and a better ad. for next season. Hoping that you will not feel hard toward me, I am very truly yours, C. H. BROWN, Manager of Trotting Dog Fred. Fair notes. The Tellicr-Avey foot race was set 'or Friday and will have to go over till next year. The Catholic ladies took in §75 Thursday, and gave a Drst-class dinner. One of the most noticeable exhibits was by the schools. LuA^erne, Wesley, and Algona had very complete lines of ivork, and all very Interesting. The jubllc school work was much better represented than ever before. The normal school exhibit of commercial work and penmanship attracted attention. The novelty race, free-for-all running and free-for-all trotting all promised to be very interesting Friday. The darkey with his phonograph was the best side show on the grounds. Koaaulh cnn get up a good fair. Next year it won't rain. The receipts for the one day were $024. Somebody carried off B. H. Anderson's wheat and oats, sacks and all, from the fair grounds. If the man who made the mistake will return thorn, or even the sacks, ho will confer a favor on the owner. METHODIST APPOINTMENTS. The Ammnl Conference Is Over—Itev.
