Kraschel and Senator George W. Patterson. Mr. Kraschel speaks at 2:30 Thursday afternoon, and Mr. Patterson, who is the republican nominee for Kraschel's position, will speak in t,he evening.

Last Year's Record Breaking Horse Races May Be Duplicated by Entries This Year Horseman have begun to look on the Kossuth fair races as the best in a long circuit, so the cream of the fast trotters' and pacers will he brought here next week. Last year's horse racing at the Kossuth fair marked a high tide in north -Iowa, with track records broken right and left. Some horse owners, are determined to win hack lost:track records this year, and their; horses have therefore been pointed to this fair for some time. Tuesday afternoon's program includes a 2:18 pace, with a $176 purse, and a 2:24 pace with a like purse. These two races will start off the fair racing program with a bang, in the opinion of the local enthusiasts, for these horses are nearing the time when they will have to move up to the faster competition. Wednesday's racing will bring a little faster time, with a 2:13 pace for a $175 purse, and an 2:24 trot for a like sum. In addition there will be the county 4Mrfurtong run, which should bring out the host ill county running horses to compete for a $25 purse. Thursday will he the last day of horse racing, with two fast harness events. The 2:14 trot is scheduled to bring out the best in hor- ses, and the 2:17 pace will be &ear* "y as fast. In past years the rating of faors-r es has not meant much here, for competition has so forced them that; the rating mark Is left far behind.
