and some of the best horBes on the turf were
entered, as follows: "Little Fred," Higby
driver "Albemarle," VaNess driver "L-u
cille," Myers driver "Darby," Dan. Mace
driver "Adelaide," Splan driver. In the pools
Darby was the favorite with the second choice
divided between Adelaide and Little Fred.
First heatThree scores got the trottcis off

Little Fred true to his instincts began the heat
with a clear lead, and held his own for a short
time, hut Albemarle dashed by him and be

the course once and jogging around to

Of course they did, my boyall of them, and

Their miscellaneous binding was especially
superb, being equal to tho fancy work done in
Europe for Jgreat libraries. Me-srs. Johnson,

of their work and the appreciation it met with
at the fair, for they are beginning to be recog

HARMAN & CO.
One of the notable displays in Mechanical
hall,the most beautiful, from an artistic stand
point, of the entire fair was that of E. A. Har
mon & Co., consisting of
FINE GROCERIES AND CROCKERY.
The space occupied by the firm in the Center
of Mechanical hall, was, from early Monday
morning until late Saturday night Burrounded
by a crowd of "fair women and brave men
admiring the arrangement no less than the
beautiful articles exhibited. And
THE FIRST PREMIUMS!
It was perfectly astounding how many blue'
ribbonB can be tacked on to one display when
the committees are all united. There was
blue ribbons on magnificent lampB, blue

trinkets, on complete sets of china, on cut
glass, ornamental and useful articles, on tin
chamber suits, on Belleek china, and on
iridescent glassware while the fine groceries
were blue ribboned as though there was no
competitorsand there was not.
Just before the close of the races Col. W. S.
King appeared in the judges' stand and ad
dressed the people present, stating that the
exposition for 1878 had now been brought to a
close. How successful had been the vast en
terprise those present were the living and en
thusiastic witnesses. He said that of all the
grand displays the grandest had been the cor
dial unity and good will of those present, who
so largely contributed to the success of the
enterprise by their helpful presence. Espec
ially would he thank those gentlemen interest
ed the noble animals who had used their
wonderful energy i the remarkable
exhibition of speed. To tho credit
of these gentlemen that during the entire
week not one single discourteous or questiona
ble action had been indulged in, and for amore\
honorable, higher-toned and truer lot of gen
tlemen the world might be searched through
and their equals be undiscovered.
The audience testified to their approval o
the Colonel's remarks by three rousing cheers'
and a vociferous -tige. Loud calls were made
for Mace, Hopeful and Rarus, and when they
appeared upon the track it looked as though
they would be literally eaten up by the excited
throng. As Mace left the ground he swung MB

western Exposition management, agreeing (as
the contract reads) to bring his entire stud, in
cluding Rarus, to Minneapols, to remain the
entire week, except only Wednesday, when he
was to trot in St. Paul.
The management here undertook on their part
to transport Rarus and Splan's entire stud
from Milwaukee to Minneapolis, free of cost,
and to send them to Dubuque from here free
of cost.. Also, to pay $1,000 certainly, and
$2,000 conditionally, to Rarns, and give Splan

Nor is this all. After the splendid reception
of his rival, Dan Mace, driver of Hopeful, on
Thursday afternoon he went off in a fit of sulks
and declared that his horse should not be
driven to make good time on the day he was
advertised, and stuck to it until he was in
formed that he would be incontinently kicked
off the Minneapolis track bag and
baggage if Rarus failed, through his
driving, to accoiunlish a creditable race.
Then he. when forced, consented to do his
best and did, after he had injured the associ
