SUPPLEMENT. Algona tlpper-Des Moines, Algona Iowa WEDNESDAY, SUPPLEMENT, the information of our readers { state fair. there has been prepared a budget of Information, gleaned from reliable eources relating to the coming iowa state fair and the carnival of Sen! Om Bed, to be held in D^s Moines September 9th to 18th. As this is an occasion «i general public interest, our readers doubtless give this supplement Cjose reading-—aad it is hoped all who can arrange to do so will attend the lair. From the best Information at band extraordinary efforts are being put forth to make the occasion more pleasurable and Interesting to visitors than ever before. Much of the work planned Is given in detail in the following columns, and It is expected that after reading these notes on preparation your enthusiasm will cause you to decide without further invitation, to pay a visit to your state fair this year. portuottfty of contributing to an institution whose management ia working 16 and out of season to advance your inter esta? A wrong conception of What the fair is may exist in the minds of some. It ia not a private concern belonging to the society; it ia a public institution by the people, of the people and for the people, says Secretary Palmer S. Clark, of the St. Joseph Whatever success there is mm A WAR WHOOP NOBLE tmt) MEN OF THE FO&- WlLL PLAV TUB GAME Of LACROSSE. Typical in it, and whatever good cornea from It is for . the community* &ttd not the members of officers of the fait, who affe merely the people's agents in transacting the business entrusted to them. Let us impress upon you that It is your fair mot ours. To stay away from It and not to aid in making it big and grand, when you might attend, hurts us some, but does more injury to you, the people, and their oauae, because the greater the success of the exhibition and the more •widespread Its influence the greater the benefits to every citizen of this agricultural state. ARE YOU DOING TO THE FAIR? Is a question in everybody's mouth, and will be until after it's over. The fair—with Its thousands of exhibits of the best that Iowa affords—its noise and bustle, its glitter and attractiveness—the fascination of its side-lights —the beauty of its completeness. Oh, iWho can afford to miss it? The great exhibits, the whirl of the almost human machinery, the racing horses, the contending Indians, the yelling dining- hall tout, and the musical peanut man —the seductive side shows, the meeting of friends, the rush, the din, the music, the scream of the locomotive's whistle, the roar of the traffic—In fact, the great lair—can you afford to miss it? Then the sights at night Thousands of dollars are piling up to spend for light, and rockets, and fireworks in the city of Des Moines. Every avenue an enchanted place, lit up with myriad lights of variegated hue. Processlone of pomp and magnificence will fill the streets, pageants no word painting can portray. The river scene at night giving a realistic rendition of the "Siege of Vicksburg"-^all this and much more can be seen free by those visiting the state fair. Can you afford to miss It? 'Are you going to the fair? CAMPING .OUT. Those who enjoy outdoor life will find no pleasanter or more convenient way of seeing the fair than by going into camp. Moat beautifully shaded grounds, with plentiful water supply are furnished free to all. There are Stores on the grounds that sell all kinds of groceries, provisions, meats, bread, etc., aft reasonable prices. If you have no oamp outfit, it cuts no figure. Tents and all other equipments can be obtained on the grounds at reasonable prices. If you want to know just what they are, drop a line to Secretary Fowler and he will send a price list by return mail. Get your feed for horses and eelves in the wagon, drive across country, avoid railroad fare, pay once for team at the gate on arrival, and that will entitle you to keep the team on the grounds all week thereafter free of cost The campers are on the increase every year, and those who know how to do it, say it is the most convenient and best way to see all the fair without fatigue and worry. Try it this year. SUNDAY. 'Among all people of all ^nationalities, there exists an inborn desire to express In some way the gratitude and thanks- fulness they feel when ever bountiful nature blesses them and.rewards their efforts with lavish crops, and golden harvests. While gaunt famine stalks abroad in the parched fields of India, and thousands of human beings have perished through hunger and disease, the uelds and granaries of favored Iowa are brimming over with the life-giving products of the soil. In England, when the harvest la over, some Sunday is set apart, and ia every hamlet the parish church is decorated with the very finest specimens of the year's growth of cereals and vegetables, usually placed within the altar. rails, and a Thanksgiving service of eong and praise is held. The toilers "look from nature unto nature's God," and pour out their hearts in gratitude for the favors bestowed. Why could not Sunday, September 12th, be devoted to a service of thanksgiving and praise. After three days given to preparation, every exhibit should be in .place on the great fair grounds. The best of all that grows will be there, tastefully arranged, and the citizens of the whole state could come to the festival, people the undulating slopes of the beautiful fair grounds, and join in one grand pean of thanksgiving and praise for the bounteous harvest, and the rich blessings they enjoy. It is an opportunity seldom given to either ministerial association or musical director, and while no absolute arrangements have been made in this direction, the idea is given In the hope that some such service of Thanksgiving may be arranged for. SPECIAL PREMIUMS. Since the premium list was printed the following offers of special premiums have been made: By the Moline Pattern works of Moline, Ills., one Moline stock watering trough to the person or firm receiving the largest amount of premiums in the Swine department. By the Iowa Trans-Mississippi and International Exposition commission for tho best and largest collection of threshed grain, any variety, not less than one quart of each variety and the best and largest collection of grain in the straw and grasses, by one individual, crop of 1897, corn not included, first premium, $25; second, $15; third, $10. . TRANSPORTATION SERVICE. The means of transportation to and from the state fair grounds are amply adequate for any sized crowd. There 'are two lines of service, the Des Moines City Railroad company running cars continuously at a five cent fare each way from its centrally located waiting room, two blocks north of the Rock Island tracks, on Sixth avenue, and also trains on the Greait Rock Island system, running every ten minutes from the depot, foot of Fourth street, at a ten cent fare each way. Both means of transit, land the visitor at the fair ground gates. The street railroad route takes in the capitol, and soldiers' monument. tillage tan th* GfouhtU— Doiho«—Sc&Ip DAttc*—Sqnaw Dance—Ghb«t Dane*. State fair mftnageinent irate en* gaged a number of Indians from the Winnebaeo tribe, including the great chief, Black Hawk, and a number from the Sax and Fox tribe. The purpose of getting Some of each tribe being to put spirit and genuine rivalry into the great games of Lacrosse that Will be played by fhe contending sides. The Indian of today posesses a charm for American boys just In proportion as in times past the very name of "Red Man" struck terror to the hearts of white settlers. The boys love to look upon the noble red matt of the forest, having mostly read with avidity the thrilling stories of. "Wild Bill's Adventures," or "The Bloody Scalplock." In years gone by this class of literature was looked upon by some people as vicious reading, because it led many a youth to arm himself and steal away from the parental roof, going west for the purpose— -as they would explain when caught, "to fight the Indians." That kind of heroism is now a phantom, and the small boy contents himself, with dressing up like an Indian and parading around the yard at home. And yet they long to see one real live Red man—they yearn for it, and some of the older folks are about the same. Responding to this evident and praiseworthy desire, the state fair management have decided to have some stalwart representatives of the race present on the grounds during the entire fair. But among them will be one historic Indian chief, if his life is spared that long, Black Hawk, chief of the Wtnnebagos, said to bo 89 years old. His picture represents him. as putting up an old and wrinkled fr6nt, and as a relic of the old fighting days, when Indiana were plenty, and to be chief was to be a doughty warrior, Black Hawk stands out the now fading embodiment of one of the best and noblest types of the Indian chief. He is coming with other and younger of the Winnebago tribe to engage in what used to be a favorite Indian game called Lacrosse, a game that has since been adopted and made popular by athletic clubs in the east, been introduced into England, and Australia, and is still growing In popularity. Lacrosse is a game, the origin of which is unknown further than that it is the development of a game called "BaKataway" which the early French settlers of Canada found among the Indian tribes. The games had no rules and consisted in an attempt of a varying number of players to throw or carry a ball with the aid of racquets, not unlike small handnets, through an opposing mass of players. Running and dodging were the features of the game, whose object seems to have been the training of warriors for the warpath by cultivating agility and endurance. The Iroquois Indians have been long accustomed to play Lacrosse in Canada. Every player is provided with a kind of large battledore.

The Kemp Sisters Hippodrome and Wild West Shows have proved -at other points the center of attraction. This wonderful combination of talent will give exhibitions on the fair grounds every day during the fair. It consists in part of a thrilling wild west representation, enacted by genuine western cowboys and cowgirls with the ponies, Mustangs, and trappings of every clay life in the far west. It is a magnificent combination of blooded stock, Bronchos, ponies, cowboys, lady equestrians, kings and queens of the Roman Hippodrome, and bareback races. ENTRIES. YOUR DUTY TO THE FAIR. . Secretary Fowler sounded a note of (warning in his annual report to the society in 1895, when he said: "There is a possibility that the Iowa Btate fair, will in the near future be eclipsed by a neighboring state. The Illinois state fair has been permanently located at Springfield, and the legislature appropriated $225,000 to be expended in buildings and other improvements of the grounds, with the promise and expectation of $125,000 more for that same purpose. In addition thereto the state appropriates $5,000 annually for the payment of premiums for the encouragement of agriculture and horticulture.* * * * * Other western Btates make liberal annual appropriations of their state fair. Minnesota 84'000; Ohio, $7,000 to state board of agriculture; Nebraska, $2,000' inprem- iums; Wisconsin gives $4,000 «fd-W per cent of all premiums awarded, and .thfe state loaned $100,000 to the Agricultural society for the purchase and im- to de- peni? almost wholly upon the gate re- Sts for money to pay Pwmiuns en* defray tpe other expenses of its great W WhSt wKue'in J895 has been verified tajS? Other states are making liberal appropriations to their a f>F 1M ;JL *»"»- «Sft8*S 1 «SJ? & re -*r/_***,,.i, its represeftt- con- Upan request of a number of exhibitors the society has determined to return to the old plan in the matter of entries in the stock departments. Hereafter a charge of ten per cent on first premiums will be required at time of making entries. This payment obviates the necessity of purchasing an exhibitor's ticket and also relieves exhibitors of the deduction hitherto made of ten per cent from their cash awards. Entries close as follows: Horses, cattle, swine and sheep, August 26, 1897; speed, September 1, 1897, at 11 o'clock p. m. All cither entries, Saturday, September 12, 1897, ait 12 p. m. The Odebolt band, the musical organization, which has secured the contract to furnish all the'music during the fair, will, it is assured, acquit itself in a manner to make its friends feel proud, and the whole state sing Its praises. New uniforms have been secured, and the band will present a clean-cut handsome appearance. It is a well-drilled organization of good musicians, and the twenty or more members who will come to the fair are going to make a most favorable impression, and shed luster on the name of Odebolt. All Odd Fellows may be sure of ft hearty welcome amd good accommodations. With the experience gained last year, there can be no bitch in the ar- rangments on this occasion. In the hands of Mr. M. Newman everything will be arranged in perfect shape. He is an indefatigable worker for the good of the order, and will leave nothing undone to make everyone happy. Parties desiring to contract for refreshment booth space, or any privilege on the grounds, in the nature of side shows, should address J. C, Fra- 8ier, Bloomfield, Iowa, up to August 21, after that date at Des Moines, Iowa, care Secretary Fowler, The practical tests in the machinery department include a plowing match, corn Planter, corn harvester, potato planter, potato digger and road making machinery. Arrangements are all made for these tests, and they will be fairly conducted. No Intelligent farmer who wftate to at the bead of tfce procession, can to miss seeing nil the latest in. long stick of light hickory, bent at the top like a bishop's crozier; strings of deorskin are stretched diagonally across the hooked portion in different directions, forming a network—not so tightly as in a regular battledore or ra- quet bat, nor so loosely as to form a bag. As this stick, called the "crosse" is five or six feet long, there is great leverage power in handling it. Only one ball is employed, made of India- rubber, and eight or nine inches in circumference. The players divide themselves into two parties, the reds and the blues. Red and blue goals are set up at opposite ends of the field, and it is the object of each party to drive the ball through the goal of the opposing color. The ball is caught up and thrown from the "crosse' or stick. The picturesque costumes of the players, the quick changing of the play from one part of the field to another, its simple rules, the graceful action of the runners all combine to make it interesting to spectators. It is this game that will form an attractive feature of the fair, the Indians having contracted to play every day. Bring the boys and let them see for themselves how the untutored savage can "Play Ball." In addition to this there will be a perfect Indian village, including the squaws and papooses in native tents of rush and bark. The squaws will be seen tn their daily avocations, doing beadwork, weaving blankets, tents, etc. The game of Lacrosse will only be one feature of their interesting exhibits. There will also be war dances, scalp dances, ghost dances, sqxiaw dances, horse races, foot races, bow and arrow contests, Indian songs and games, making them one of the great attractions of the fair. I.O.O.¥rCELEBRATION AH branches of the I. O, 0. F. will have a celebration at the State Fair grounds, commencing Wednesday, September 15, with the military branch, the highest degree of the order known as the Patriarchs Militant, It is expected there will be at least 750 members in attendance, all under strict military discipline and lodged in 300 canvas tents. There will be dress parades and drills, and the several cantons will compete for prizes for efficiency in drill and manual of arms. 'Grant's tactics will govern the judges. This organization is equipped with the best uniform of any order In existence and will, in its entirety, present ft magnificent spectacle. The program, though wot officially formulated, will be about as follows: The official program will be sent by General J. T. Abbott Qf Manchester, Iowa, to Catena at en ewbr date-. DR. CARVEIl AND HIS HORSES. Dr. Carver, the champion shot of the world, will give daily exhibitions of his wonderful powers, supplemented by the daring leaps of his trained diving horses "Powder Face" and "Cupid." This exhibition of the power of man to train animals by kindness to do deeds of daring—no whip being used— is of itself an exhibit worth coming miles to see, and wherever shown has attracted thousands of visitors. The application for Dr. Carver's services, were so numerous that the fair management are congratulating themselves upon having been fortunate enough to close a contract with him. A circular letter w*ti recently sent to' superintendents of every department Of the fair, asking for ah honest ex- pfettsion of opinion as to the outlook, and a statement of new features expected to be introduced in each depart- m«ttt. Following are the facts gathered from the replies, much of the matter being entirely in the language of the superintendents embodied in their replies. . There is much of interest in these reports and they afford a safe thermometer by which to gauge the situation. They were made with the knowledge that they were to be used for publication, and are therefore more conservative in tone than would be a private communication. The outlook is certainly encouraging and if everyone who reads these reports will draw Inspiration enough from them to make them resolve to become either exhibitors, or attendants on the fair, the effort of the management to disseminate all this information will not have been in vain. HORSES, PONIES AND MULES. J. P. Manatrey, superintendent, P. 0. address, Falrfield, Iowa, Renewed interest is shown In this department after some years of depression. It has been demonstrated by experience that there is a good market and good prices can be obtained for well-bred stock. Like everything else the raising of horses for market was brought to a standstill by general business stagnation, prices went below cost of production, and many a man went out of the business. Things are beginning to look up again now, and tho Intelligent breeder, who neeks to raise thoroughbred animals is bestirring himself once more. This condition of things has led to our having greater demand for stall-room. There will be more exhibits, I believe, than for years past, judging from inquiries made up to date and I think a greater diversity of good animals in all classes. Among the additions in this department is the offering of premiums amounting to $165 on saddle horses. A slight change in premiums on ponies has been also made. Applications for stall room should be made without delay. If you have eai animal you prize and think a winner, bring him along, put him beside the other fellow's and hear the judge'3 verdict ors can see at ft glanfle while through the hall the tiaturll -..' exhibit It will greatl? Jacil Work if parties writing foflf mention fully the natui-e th, ,«.„..,. hibit, how many, and tttaikfad'tit' play, BO that these cards ate? beT" erly prepared. Much delay , ml saved in awarding the premlunls-l year, by allowing the judge ,a/cu! There is always a curiosity >>* ttfj which exhibit takes a prize by the ] lie and the exhibitor alike, 'ana- 1 clerk allowance will insure the being made much more rapidly"' ever before. Another advantage galne by an early disposition of the aWaMil,], will be to allow exhibitors time to B6*L some of the other attractions of the^f, fair, something they have been to do hitherto. ^ New exhibitors are earnestly invited! to bring in their products. There*.! plenty of space for all who may ft and they are assured of a warm come. « 11 As corn is tha leading product c Iowa it will be prominent in the grefl display and $425 in cash premiums ar« _. offered on this product alone. ThOB,e£! interested in corn growing cannot ford to miss seeing the groat corn < hibit, sure to be made in agriculture hall this year. IO\VA MANUFACTURES. , 0. L. F. Browne, superintendent; P. $ O. address, Des Moines, Iowa. We forget that Iowa ought to be manufacturing state. We have wont to look to the east for factpi made products. Our fine farm ducts now GO OUT to pay for the manufactured products' that COME IN/ S* our home factories have "hard sledi din.'" We swap products with J ,1 distant manufacturer. Why not SOLDIERS' DAY. On Tuesday, September 13, all old soldiers will be made welcome and the usual courtesy of free admission by ticket, obtained through county auditors, is extended them. Generalissimo Stucky is arranging for a brilliant series of camp fires, rousing speeches, and a social -good time. Wives and widows of old soldiers will likewise bo admitted free, and it is desired that all may take advantage of the opportunity to come and have a. rousing good time. The years are hastening by, and the ranks are thinning out. Many a veteran has answered tho last roll-call since they met on the old camping ground a year ago. Come and shake the hands and look once more into the faces of those who stood by you when the fight was hottest in the days of '61. It may be your last opportunity. INDIANS—LAST OF THE BACK, Black Hawk, the aged chief of the Winnebagos, with a select company of hia sturdiest warriors, will be at .the fair to compete with a similar crowd of warriors from the Sac and Fox agency, for honors in their old-time game of Lacrosse. The boys will all want to see a crowd of real live Indians, and witness them play a game that is as exciting as base-ball and more dangerous. This game will be played daily, and the Indians will go into camp on the grounds, thus exhibiting to visitors their ordinary methods of life in the tepee. All of which may have been a common sight with the old pioneers, but the newer generation will look upon it with curiosity and wonder, as something they have just read about in books. w«j« ».? a?

On children's day— Tuesday— there will be a special exhibition of drilling, marching, and callsthenle exercises given by one thousand children of the East Des Moines schools. Each child. will carry a small flag, and the uniform fluttering of one thousand of these emblems of patriotism, held in the hands of "coming America" will indeed be a pretty eight. The drill will demonstrate the high grade of training given in this direction in the public schools of I)es Moines. SPEED. C. E. CAMERON, superintendent, P. O. address, Alta, Iowa. Both horsemen and public, we believe, will welcome with pleasure, the new style of racing to be adopted at the state fair track this year, which consists of what is known as the three- heat system—every heat to be a race. CATTkE. Daniel Sheehan, superintendent, P. O. address Osage, Iowa. The prospect is good for a great cattle show. It looks as if it would excel the show of lost year. I believe the class for fat steers and heifers will be quite popular with tho breeders as well as with the feeders. I intend to have expert judges for all the different classes. If nothing unusual happens, you will surely see one of the best displays of dairy cattle at tho Iowa state fair this year that has been witneased since the world's flair at Chicago. If you have any doubt about the standing of your breed, of cattle bring them out, put thorn alongside the other exhibits and expert judges will be on hand to tell you just how many good or bad points tho animals have. Trot out the caittle, it helps the exhibit as a whole, helps the fair, and helps the state. If all should hold back, it would be a poor show. The success of the fair greatly depends up on the exhibitors. SWINE. R. J. Johnston, superintendent, P. 0. address, Humboldt, Iowa. I cannot say much, only there is a prospect for a good show. Tho swine exhibit this year should be ono of the greatest drawing cards of the fair. Every hog in sight ought to be considered a horo, for has he not escaped the dread pestilence pf cholera? Every species of swine exhibited will be curiosities. They , have proven themselves cholera proof—but just as a matter of precaution the state veterinary surgeon has had every pen thoroughly disinfected. Come one, coine all, every thing is safe and clean and pure. SHEEP AND 1'OUI/TRY. B. J. Moore, superintendent, P. O. address, Missouri Valley, Iowa. Everything indicates a great exhibit of both sheep and poultry this year. The premiums have been increased in each department and new breeds have been added, making a more complete premium list than has ever before been offered- exhibitors. Special premiums have also been added in many classes, and all that suggests itself has been for ourselves and BO keep both product»| at home? Why not swap products with"! our neighbor and so make every one>*s prosperous? ' '1 If Iowa made all that Iowa needs; we-j would have both the money and the- ^ goods and Iowa farms would be worth '| $100 per acre. ' /" If what we buy, as well as whait,w*,; ; sell/were produced in Iowa, your b ness would always be hotter. , ,,.,-, How do eastern factory men get Iqw&}' trade? By going for it hard. Do Iowa manufacturers go hard for it? No?,; Your eastern man is at the state 'air. Are you? He makes an attractive ex-j hibit to all the thousands, and hun-, dreds of thousands that visit this grea^! fair. Do you? This exhibition gets; him tho trade that you might have. Do you like it? No? What then? - V .1. Your competitor comes sometime^ from far New England, nearly 2,000) miles to the fair and makes it pay.

"There is that scattereth yet in-'/ creaeeth: There is that withholdeth.; more than is meet and it tendeth toy poverty." ' 5; Arise then and for ten long days' show your products to all Iowa at thojj fair. ',''"• The state fair authorities have at last come to see that Iowa manufacturers are as deserving of attention as are, Iowa agriculturists. A recently esta'bt, lished department of strictly lo manufactures affords reasonable rep-| o&nition and Iowa factorymen are earn--; estly urged to examine the premium' lists in their own behalf. The superintendent of this division^, will do his best to make everything easy for the Iowa exhibitor and as prof if- itable to him as possible. Note the premium list.
