The "four-minute men arc speaking at each program, under the auspices of City Commissionei 1 T, (3* Armour. "The pollco arc having very little trouble with the State Fair crowd," was tho statement by the policemen who are looking after the Interests of tho crowd at the grounds this week. "Fewer arrests than ever before have been made and very little trouble has been experienced with pickpockets or other thieves," was tho announcement. > Girls and women are working this week In unaccustomed places at the State Fairgrounds, taking the places of men. "At tho entrance of the. grounds, where street .car tickets are sold and collected Ihe work is being done entirely by young girls and women. Die Impression that is current here that the government pictures are not free?" asked It- L. Peterson In charge of the government ,exhibition here.

Over two thousand pounds of literature was received this morning at tho government exhibit from the government exhibit from the government and Is being given out by Hoy Scouts. Tho "middles" each:need a social secretary to attend to their affairs while in Hutchinson, uttending tho State Fair, declared one of the band- men today. "It's sure nice for us that all the regular men are away in the service for I believe most of the boys are all ready to step Into the place as regulars here if we could only stay long enough. The girls here have sure treated us fine and we all want to come back. The only thing wrong is that most of.the men havo so many engagements with the girls it's hard for them to attend to their regular work such as eating and sleeping and playing the concerts. I'm married," he added. The government exhibition will not be taken back,to Washington till In December, remarked B. I* Perkins who has charge of the show here. "From here wo take the show to Muskogee, Okla.. for the Oklahoma State Fair and from there to the Kansas City Stock show and from there into tho southern states." "When will the war end?" was asked of Col. Scott Smith us that seems to be tho first and most approved question to put to every army officer. "Ask me five years from now nnd 1 can come pretty near lo the answer, I think," he said. One of the interesting exhibits at tho government exhibit is that of market baskets, showing the different sizes which are often used lu short measure the housewives and by the sldo of the fraudulent measures aro tho true legal sizes, showing how easy it is to be mistaken. It Is interesting and also very educational to watch the fine champion cattlo receiving their dally shampoo and manicure and curl, etc. and the preparing of the stock for exhibition Is as complicated, an affair ns the toilet of a girl for her first dance. Tho attendants first carefully clean, then give all of the careful pats ami twists which make them so inurh admired by ibe visitors.

Other oil stocks also were actively bought, Royal Dutch advancing 3% points and California petroleum preferred and Sinclair each about a point. Persistent accumulation of tho oil stocks, which were absorbed on the lator trades, attracted a big professional following and this had a tonic effect on tho general list. Pronounced strength was shown in Marino preferred, Pullman, the Tobaccos, American smelling and Uie distillery group. Advances ranging from one to throe points. Increased Inquiry for southern and southwestern railroad shares was traceable - to the exceiliml earnings being reported on the large diversified tonnage being handled by these roads. Tho scope of tho buying movement broadened considerably In the final hour, attributed to moro general realization that tile recent short selling had been heavily overdone, investment purchases were plainly evident again.

When you meet a soldier, can you tell at a glance his rank and his trench service? At the Fair In the government exhibit are complete sots of chevron Indicating the rank of noncommissioned officers, and include also the coveted and honored symbols that indicate service aud wounds. There aro also all kinds of collar ornaments and Army campaign hadgos, the latest to be added to the latter list is the badge for service on the Mexican border. One of the interesting pictures to be seen In tho Government movie exhibit is the construction of roadways by Uncle Sam or as is known in the army, the arteries of war. Roads are called upon to do their bit for the war whether for hauling ammunition supplies to these soldiers or wheat and other food supplies in this country. Every step in road building is seen on tho screen. "War is sure all Sherman said it was" complained a Girl at the St_ie Fair today.

Tho girl was right, and In the thousands of Stale Fair visitors the absence of young men is noticable. For the first time since the Slate Fair was organized, eighteen years ago Senator J. K. Couklin, superintendent of admissions was off duty for a few hours. He was taken suddenly very 111 yesterday afternoon and was removed to—his home.

McKeever, of the State Child Welfare board, who felt that children should nut be given cash prizes and placed In tho class with live stock. However the Interest remained aa high when casli was not offered so this year the original plan of offering cash prizes was gone back to. The Mother's club Is maintaining a. booth, advertising tho entertainment which they will give the last of October at the Convention Hall tho show will bo tho Pavley-Oukrolnsky Bullet and the Little Symphony orchestra and the affair will be given as a benefit for the Day Nursery building fund.
