Enter the Grounds.
But you are impatient to enter the
fair grounds. Well, here you go !
Passing through the main entrance
on the north side of Market street,
you are right on Exhibit street, and
the scene is almost bewildering in
its dazzling effect. Several lines of
gaily-decorated booths stretch off t
the northern end of the grounds.
Pou find yourself in a veritable shop

revolving into worlds of delight. The
wares lie invitingly exposed to the
public, either for purchase or scru

special resources. To do justice in a
detailed account of each exhibit

Each is superb in its particular line
and these exhibits alone are among
the most important and attractive

near Ravenna, in Portage county.
The base ball team ftfom the burg
managed to win a game from the In
dians last "Wednesday.
The Courier, referring to the game
has the following to say:
"Manager Leech Maskrey's team of
base ball players chalked up their
sixth successive victory Wednesday
at Silver lake, by giving the yellow
streaked aggregation of misnomers
from the cheapest sporting town in
Ohio a defeat that would long he re
membered, if it wasn't a common
occurrence. It was at the grocers'
picnic, the biggest affair, conducted
on the cheapest plan, that Akronians
usually participate in. There were
several thousand Akron people pres
ent, to whom the Kents gave a very
clear illustration of the difference
between the two teams."
Rain interfered with the ball game
which was (to have been played at
the Buchtel college grounds Satur

Berlin teams. The contest has been
