Twenty-Fifth Minnesota Slate Fair.
A LIGHT BEGINNING
The Omen or a Gold Ending.
THE PBOGKAXME FOE TUESDAY.
A Big Daj and Bright Prospects in
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Owatonna, Sept. 4.—The opening day
of the state fair, given under the auspices
of the Minnesota State Agricultural asso
ciation, did not bring near the attendance
that had been anticipated by the manage
ment. The small crowd was due princi
pally to the greater attractions offered in
St. Paul, and to which a great number of
the citizens of Owatonna and the neigh
boring towns went. Another reason for
this condition was the backward condition
of exhibits and displays on the ground, for
which, however, the association was in no
way rsspon^ible. The miuinjrement had
everything ready for the exhibitors, but
these latter, fur some unaccountable rea- j
son, did not seem to have been able to
come to time. Tho utmost confusion |
reignel everywhere. Stock, machinery j
and exhibits, of all descriptions, were oom- ;
ng on to the ground all day a? fas: a* the :
gate-keeper? could admit them: the officers
of the various divisions, and their assist
ants were kept on the run all day assigu- 1
ing this one here end fixing up that one j
At 3 o'clock the stock w;r.s not nearly all j
on the ground, and those that were bad]
not all settle! in their places or made!
their entries, so that it was ioipcpsible it; I
the confused st. to of things to get a ■full j
list of the entries in these divisions. For- [
ther on, however, in this telegram will be |
found a list of the stock entered up to 4 :
o'clock p. m. From the books, and other j
indications, the conclusion is forced that;
this will be the largest and most complete
stock meeting ever seen in this state. _ Tha
best representatives of ever;- cHss in al
most all the known breeds of c ii '.!e,horses,
sheep and swine, will be found here.
The leading breeders cf Illinois, Iowa,
Wisconsin and Minnesota have chosen the
fair grounds at Owatonna as the scene
upon which will be fought the decisive
battle of this year's campaign. The short
horn men particularly have blood in their
eye, and they seem to be in a shape, as far
as the excellence and completeness of their
exhibits are concerned to feel very
well satisfied and anticipate a glorious
Division A with its various classes, em
braces the entire horse exhibit, and a note
worthy one it will prove to be. The classes
have all filled well with the best of their
kind known in the Northwest. Class No.
3, horses for all work, and class No. 4,
brood mares for all work, make an extra
ordinary showing, and some of the speci
mens can't be beat in the world. Class
Nos. 5 and 6, Clydesdale, will be a
genuine surprise to the lovers
of this neble animal. The double matched:
and single driving teams, class 14 and 15,
are well filled, and will attract great at
tention on the day of trial.
The cattle exhibit is extraordinary and
when the full list is published will be
fonnd to be the largest ever known in the
stafte. Short horns, Devon?, Jerseys, Al
derneys, Polled Angus and others, both
foreign and domestic bred. When Bach
breeders as C. A. DeGraff, J. J. Hill, N. P.
Clark, K. S. Kingman, Foster & Botten,
and others equally notable as breeders of
fancy stock, make up their minds to show
up the best they have got, in the best shape
they know how, as they seem to have de
termined in this instance, an extraordinary
display can reasonably be expected.
Sheep, swine and poultry in their various
divisions and classes are ordinarily well
represented, and will be worth seeing.

S industrial hall.
; Now here an the ground wer. tbe exhibits
i so incomplete and confused as in I-uus-
I trial hall; all owing to the exhibitors
i themselves, who had delayed their displays
I nt in the last moment <:'~d were now mak
j ing frantic endeavors to make up time.
: 1'ho bunding is a model for an exhibition
of the character proposed. It is divided
| up in shape suastogivu each exhibitor
j as good a showing as possible lot the space
he occupies. I'wo wiJo stairways lead to
the second story, to which has been assign
ed the department of flowers, traits and
vegetables, and in which, although the en
tries were numerous, and all present oa
the floor in bulk, not one exhibitor had got
his display into proper shape.
Down stairs in Industrial hall it look;
when the'thing is finally in shape, as if the
display of manufactured goods would be
far above the average. The following had
their exhibits in place or nearly so and
were ready for the visitors:
Chicago Stove works and Adams & West
lake oil and vapor stoves. A. 0, Searle,
T. H. Loyd, of Faribault, hardware
and fine cutlery.
A. Knobloob, Austin, locks, oil stoves,
The ladies of Owatonna have been as
signed a larger space and are making a
very creditable exbit of fancy knitting and
Mrs. C. W. Ransom, of Albert Lea, an
artist of some considerable renown in this
state has on exhibition in the space allot
ted to the Owatonna ladies some beautiful
specimens of in r cwn handiwork in oil and
water colors. These specimen paintings
will attract large attention.
Herford's Baking Powder company are
making an unique display.
J. G. A. Demerline, of Faribault is fill
ing up a large circular stand
with floral designs, plants and
specimens, which, when finished, will be a
beaatiful and prominent feature of the
C. E. Richardson, of Albert Lea, has en
exhibition some fine specimens of stuffed
work, grouse, quail, ducks, geeee, deer, etc.,
J. P. Young will attract notice by a fine
line of Kimball pianos and organs.
Stevenson & Co., of Faribault, show r.
fine line of dres3 goods. J. W. Kollman,
also of Faribault, makes a display in
ladies' cloaks, shawls, etc.
Lauren, Strait &, Co., have established a
full fledged creamery on a small scale in
the hall. Butter and cheese will be made
before the visitors, eyes to their great de
1'ght no doubt.
Fred Miller and Will Thomas both of
Owatonna, show up some excellent speci
mens in their line of photography.
In a neat little building back of the
large hall, the Domestic Sewing Machine
Co., have established themselves
with a full force of operators
including a blind girl operator, and pro
pose to show the people what they can do
in household decorative art.
There is no lack of display In this line,
and some of it is out of the usual routine
line so noticeable at all fairs. The vari
ous machines have power attached and
show their work.
Howe & Co. have simply a raised
platform on which they make an at
tractive display of plewa, seeders, hay
rakes, etc., etc.
The Dennett Harvesting Machine oom
pany have put up a neat building and
show their new improved biader up to
Walter D. Wood & Co. have a platform;
as have also the Champion people.
The Piano binder is under the cover of a
new shed, with power attached.
The Deering and Osborne buildings
stand side by side, and are neat structures,
calculated to show off their machinery to
the best advantage.
There are various oilier sheds
and platforms to receive machinery,
which had, however, not been placed to
The opening day had been set apart by
the association as Children's day, and it
was expected that there would be a great
number in attendance, particularly as the
entrance'was to be free to all under four
teen years of acre. ! But this charitable
and worthy scheme did not pan out as it
should have done for some reason or an
other not plain to the management them
selves. The number of children present
did not exceed 150, and - the programme
that was arranged for their entertainment
was dropped entirely with the exception of
a pony race and a foot race. .
j TUESDAY'S FBOaaAUXZ.
To-morrow, Tuesday, will be a great
day. The most strenuous 3 efforts are" ; be
ing made to fill out every space and com
plete every display, and we have no doubt
it will be accomplished. Secretary Judaon
was much chagrined over the dilatory
movements of exhibitors and has punched
them up with a sharp stick to-day. He
will have the exhibits and things in general
about the grounds in shape and order if he
has to work all night with his men. The
attendance to-day is confidently expected
to be large, as St. Paul and Minneapolis
will turn over a large crowd of visitors
whose original destination was tbe state
fair but were detained by the Yillard re
ception. Gov. Hubbard and suite will come
down on the early train and stay all day.
Faribault, Austin, Northfitld Albert Lee,
Rochester and other southern Minnesota
towns will contribute largely to the attend
alee. A feature of this day will be the

much talked of barbecue. A whole ox will
be roasted and the governor and
prominent visitor* treated to a genuine
old fashioned least. Preparations tor
roasting the ox have been going on all
day. A large pit has been dug on the
grounds in which several cords of maple
wood have been burned. This evening
about 7 o'clock the wood will all be burned
out and the pit full of coals. I The dressed
ox will then be lowered into | and covered
over with' these live coals and the pit
sealed up.v To-morrow about noon Chief
Cook Cowering calculates to open his
oven and serve lop such a sweet, juicy
toast ns never before tickled tha palates of
the governor and the guests. The ladies
of the Congregational church of Owatonna
have uodort&ken to supply the extras to
this bauqatt and they will no doubt do
♦heir share of the feast in firEt-olass style.
The larger Red Rook tent has been spread
and will hold £00 diners at one time.
