The fine weather of fair week was all in favor of the stands and other privilege people. They universally report a good trade. A. M. and Chas.

Wo want a dash of rain, ov several of them. Rivalry among tho hacks last Thursday came very near producing free rides to the fair grounds. That ^hows what comes from lively competition. D B Avey has leased the Martin Bronson building on State street for a term of throe years, and will move his harness stock soon. It is a good location. See Goeders for cloaks and clothing. Tho big sale is now on at his store, ana if you want bargains you should get there at once. They won't last forever. City water mains are now laid to the cemetery gate, but-tho extension of mains about tho grounds will not be made nntil next spring. Then small pipes will be laid. A new boy at W. H.

It would not do to have fair week and collection week for this paper come at the same time, and as the fair couldn't be postponed tho collections were. Business men will bo waited on in duo season. One of tho handsome sales made at the county fair was that of L. F. Millen of the poor farm, of a grade calf for $38 to J. Ziglor and a full-blood to J. R. Mawdsloy for $60. .They were splendid animals. Excavations aro made and a gate will be put in at the city water works by which tho water can be shut olt from the stand pipe without stopping the city supply. It is a needed improvement. Beach & Bowers had it all their own wav at the opera houso last night, Their show is "hot stuff" from start to finish, and tho specialty work and the trained dogs are as good as one sees anywhere. Perhaps not all of the buggies that camo to the fair were sold by tho Wigwam, but many of them were. They still have many fine ones on 1, . and will keep tho stock good during fall and winter. The several thousand farmers who came to tho fair last week in carriages just as good as anybody rides in were a living refutation of Bryan's calamity talk.

Everybody is invited. Not in a long time have Kossuth county's roads been so dry and dusty, as at present. It is an uncommon thing to see dust an inch deep on any road in this section, but that condition exists in places. The weather man should send us a shower. Did anyone note the fact that not an accident of any character occurred on the fair grounds during the four days of the fair? This is the record, aadis particularly noteworthy in view of the racing and other amusements that were going on, and, the immense crowd on, the grounds. Hon. Leslie M.
