The fair never had so good races and attractions before. The fancy bicycle riding by Leo Richardson wus a great hit, tho baloon ascensions wore well made, while tho attempt of "Tho Ter- rible.Swede" to heat Cory's pony was tho most exciting event of tho season. The field of horses was fine, and track records were broken in the regular races. Tho races und results were aa follows: Farmers' novelty race— Sailor, Powolson 1 Rowdy, B. Adams 2 Dude, W. A.

Prof. G. L. McKay of the state agricultural college dairy school was up again to judge the butter. The exhibit was smaller than a year ago, and he said quite considerably inferior in quality. Aug. Johnson of the Bancroft creamery got first on a marking of 97, which is good. Aug. Nurell of Hobart was second on a mark of 95i, Fenton third. The lowest mark was 92. Mrs. R. M. Gardner was the only exhibitor of dairy butter and was marked 91. Mrs. A. Byson exhibited dairy cheese which was marked 85. Prof. McKay praised very highly a brick cheese made by Mary Marty, a girl of 16ySkrs. He said it was very fine. Prof. McKay suggested that much benefit could be derived from thebutter contest if the judging should be done in the presence of all dairymen and he should give a little talk, explaining why he marked certain butters high and others low. This is favorably considered by the society and will doubtless be part of the program next year, THE STOCK SHOW. The stock judge was a son of Barclay of West Liberty, the big cattle breeder. He was sent by Prof. Curtiss of Ames, and is to represent the Iowa agricultural college at the big stock show in Omaha, where a prize is offered for the most expert stock judge among the students of the various agricultural colleges. He is considered one of the most competent judges in the west. The horse display was very fine, and the cattle display also. The hogs and sheep were not much in evidence. The poultry show was good. The chief contest was between eight short-horn cows exhibited by Lou Millen of the poor farm, J. W. Wadsworth, and Frank Jenkinson. They were all beauties. THE FEUIT PISPLAY. As good an exhibit as any was in fruit. J. E. Stacy had a big shed built for his collection, and it contained many varieties. He and Alex. McDonald had fine pears raised in the county, Mr. Stacy getting four bushels from one tree this year. S. Reed bad some good peaches raised by him, and Mrs. G. M. Jphnson, apricots. Orange Minkler showed 13 varieties of grapes from his vineyard, and S. A. Thompson had peaches from a pit planted seven years. the apples were fine northern greenings shown by M. DeL. Parsons, a splendid winter apple, also Rambaus shown by D. S. Miller, an apple that has kept in good condition into May. Many others had fine showings, and the display as a whole was very fine. SOME SPECIAL EXHIBITS. G. M. Johnson showed his Corn busker In operation. A. L. Goddard had a very handsome corn battery made of corn grown by Vincent Bros, west of town. The Farmers' Milling company was in evidence with a big display. The special features of the educational exhibit were maps of the United Slates, drawings of tho battleship Iowa, and colored flags drawn by school students. Brownell had a case of shoes, A. L. Peterson a frame of photographs, Dox- seo a stove, D. B. Avey some harness, nnd others In town special exhibits. The merchants were not largely represented. THE FAIR IN GENERAL. As a whole tho fair was a great success. Everybody had a good time, and everybody fools under obligations to tho officers of tho association who have done tho work. Here's a motion for a unanimous re-election for them all, and for four good days in 1899. NOTES OF THE FAIR. Perry Burlingame had a potato planter of his own manufacture on exhibition and also a now potato digger ho has bought, Perry has 16 acres of potatoes this year and will plant 40 ncres next year. Ho says his potatoes this year will go as high as 200 bushels to the ncre in places. Dr. Koneflck now owns Axlncor, tho son of Axtoll his brother brought up last year. Tho doctor won first premium with him in tho horse show and put him into tho free-for-all trot or pace. Axtnoor was tho handsomest horse on tho track and traveled as easily as his famous sire. But ho was in too fust company. Ho came in a close second in a boat that was trotted in 2:191, but is eligible to tho 2:30 class. Ho will show all of the horses his heels in another season. Somo boys stole most of the cako that was on display. Tho ladies ought to havo a place specially fitted up for their pantry stores. Tho natural deviltry that is in everybody is shown in the breaking of the glass top to tho refrigerator. During the summer somebody had smashed in every glass in the box, nnd they all had to bo replaced. Wm. K. Ferguson sold a rod polled bull calf for $150. Ho wns a beauty. Tho poor farm short horns' wore nearly all prixo winners. A bull calf was" sold for $90. Supervisor Barton has made a specialty of stocking the farm with blooded cattle, and ho says that enough havo boon sold already to more than pay all tho cost. Lou Mil- Ion, who is in charge, is the man for the place. E. P. Keith showed a 2-yoar-old colt weighing 1,425 pounds. Chas. Lango says'the golden Wyan- dotto fowls boat all others. He has some beauties. BAB BLOOD AT BANCROFT, Cheap Lands. If you want Minnesota or Dakota lands cull and BOO mo before you buy.

Ail unpleasant neighborhood row has called the Bounty attorney to Bancroft several times lately. Two farmers, Mr. Everding and John Spear, are having the law on each other. As the story goes Everdlng's boy worked for Spear, who Insisted on adding tobacco chewing, whiskey drinking and profanity to the boy's accomplishments. Everding took his boy away and Spear threatened to make life very unpleasant for the old gentleman the first time he mot him. They came together at a threshing although Evording tried to avoid Spear. After they met, however, Evording took a scoop shovel and gave Spear a good basting. Then Spear had him arrested and fined $5 for assault and battery, he pleading guilty. While this was going on Spear made more threats and Everding had him arrested and bound over to keep tho peace* Then Spear brought civil action for damages agalnstEvordingon account of tho scoop shovel act, and this was tho last suit tried. E. C. Raymond represented tho state in tho criminal proceedings and defended Evording in tho civil action, getting him off without expense. _ Tho C. E. IIolBe Injunction. C. K Heiso has sued out an injunction against tho Algona school board. He asks by his attorneys, Clarko & Cohenour, that it bo restrained from taking his lots for a school house site. The school board has two lawyers, E. V. Swotting and J. W. Sullivan, and they will defend. Tho matter was to have boon heard at Emmotsburg by Judge Holsell Monday, but was postponed because Mr. Clarko was at Forest City on a case, that could not wait. Tho claim made in Mr. Hoiso's petition Is that tho school board has no right to use any part of the $17,000 voted to build a building with which to purchase a site, and that without this money it has no funds available, and that it has put up the price of the lots with tho county treasurer out of money it had no right to use, It will bo remembered that this matter carno up in connection with tho sale of the bonds, but tho board wa& satisfied then and is still that tho authority to soil bonds to build a building includes the right to get ground to sot it on. handled, and made him state just who he sold each oaf to, the price obtained and the amount sent to Iowa. This was a sweater for Chicago, but George told him he was goihg to verify every transaction, and the fellow had to show up. The result was that a verdict of $10,000 was obtained against the commission man, he had to put up good bonds be* fore the battle began, and the money Will be collected. It would be interesting to know just how much money those Chicago thieves have stolen from our stock buyers and hay dealers. Personal services on members of these gangs obtained in Iowa Insures a fair.trial and others may profit by the West Bend deal. A HOT RACE IS ARRANGED. Fred. Cory and Lawson to Go Again Oct. 14 Jbr Fve Mtlcs—Swede Confident of Winning. An adjourned mooting of the county agricultural society will bo held at the fair grounds Friday, Oct. 14, for a final race between John Lawson "The Terrible Swede," and Fred. Cory's pony. The race was arranged between Cory and Lawson for $100 a side Saturday and the forfeits were posted. The society then offered a per centage of the gate receipts to have tho race here. The agreement Is that Lawson shall be Fair News, The Rosenthal Cyclone Corn Busker in charge of their agent, Mr, Sindorf, met with great favor among the farmers who saw it in operation. Mr. Sindorf formerly helped build the Milwaukee busker and shredder, and claims that the cyclone will do one-third more work than any machine yet ballt, using the same power, Norman Collar of Bancroft bought the machine exhibited at the fair.

Cohenour wont to Emmetsburg Monday to havo a, date set for the rehearing of tho Dr. Lacy case. This is tho case which arose out of tho doctor's employment by the board of health of Irvlng'ton to treat some diplheria cases, and by the trustees of Lu Verne to treat somo fever patients, at a time when Dr. MeCormack wus county physician. The board of supervisors refused to pay his bill, alleging that Dr. MeCormack should havo been called. Dr. Lacy won in the lower court, tho chief claim being that Dr. MeCormack was not qualified to do the county doctoring. The supremo court reversed the decision because evidence was admitted to show spool 11 o acts of incompotency, liquor drinking, and neglect on Dr. McCormack's part, holding that his general professional reputation alone could be shown. Incidentally, however, it held that where a town board of health calls any doctor for a contagious disease the county must pay. The doctor's costs up to date are over $200, owing to being beaten in the supreme court. Ho will win ono branch of his case, but the other will be hotly contested, the ono where tho trustees called him to trout the fever patients. W. 35. Milliard Sued. E. V. Swotting has begun a suit against W, E. Bullard of Belmond, one time chief clerk of the senate at Des Moinos. He sent Bullard a $100 claim to collect, and Bullard Jails or refuses to remit. Bullard's name was widely advertised in a forgery case in which he was accused of having signed his mother's name to notes. paced by two tandems and a triplet, he to furnish the wheels and riders. He will come from Chicago, but whether he will bring his pacers from Chicago is not known. Tho race at tho fair ground was ridden in 11 minutes and 47 seconds. The Swede is confident ho can cut that considerably. In fact he offered to put up $500 that he could run it in nine minutes and 30 seconds. Fred, does not say how fast the pony can go, but evidently believes he can come down to somewhere near 10 minutes and that the Swede cannot beat it. The Swede has a record of five miles in eight minutes and 53 seconds on a hoard track, Ho is a very fast man, and with fast pacers will make fast time. Still there are plenty who believe that the pony will beat him. It will be n contest worth seeing. MABKIED FIFTY YEARS. THE Singer sewing machine got first premium at the county fair last week.

Judge Quarton'H Parents Celebrate Their Golden Wedding. Judge and Mrs, Quarton went to Oskaloosa to attend the golden wedding of his parents, which occurred at their home in Fremont Tuesday, Sept. 27. Tho Fremont Gazette reports the happy event, and says: Last Tuesday was the anniversary of the marriage of Mr, and Mrs. W. B. Quarton, the ceremony uniting them as husband and wife having been performed 50 years ago. Arrangements were accordingly made for a family re-union at the parental home in Fremont. Of the seven children living five were present, viz.^ Mrs. Vanarsdale of near Hutohinson, Kan.; Mrs. J. L. By ram of Redwood Falls, Minn.; T. M. Quarton of Tracy, Minn.; Judge W. B. Quarton of Algona, Iowa; and Ezra D. of Fremont, The absent ones were Mrs, J. B. McFall of St. Joseph, Mo,, whose health prevented, and Mrs. McDonald of Portland, Oregon. The family meeting was an exceedingly pleasant one, but would of course have been more so had the two absent daughters been present. Mr. and Mrs. Quarton were married in Lynnviile, 111., lived there one year, and then removed to Macoupin county, living there 18 years, and the past thirty-one have been residents of this vicinity. Although they have passed the three score and ten, the period allotted to mankind, they still have a fair degree of health, are highly esteemed and respected by all, and their numerous friends will hope that their declining years may be those of quiet peace and comfort, as they richly deserve.

Every stock dealer has had trouble with commission merchants. They bought hay of a West Bend dealer for several years, and at first the dealer made some money, but finally the commission, drawback, draft, tare and whatnot began to eat up the profits and the hay- man failed. The commission man sued him for $600, and one of the firm came out to collect. Geo. E. Clarke of Algona was attorney for the West Bend man, and getting personal service on the member o( the commission firm, George filed a counter claim for $20,000.
