And Manufacturers Display Thoir
Wares Very Attractively.
Exhibits Are the Admiration of All1 the
1S4S and the present building now
occupied. The miniatures are trans
parencies, being beautifully illum
inated in the evening. A full line
of made garments for gentlemen
and children is the magnum display.
It is certainly one of the wonders
of the present day that such gar
ments can be sold at such prices.

Occupying the largest pavilion
upon the grounds and most cen
trally located is the mammoth dis
play of M. O'Neil & Co. The
reputation of this firm is far-spreading,
especia'ly because of its re
markable stock and efficient corps,
of decorators. The exhibit is di
vided into five departments, giving
it the appeal ance of a miniature

curio of the collection. Its power
is marvellous. Mandolins, violins,
banjos, and guitars are tastily hung
upon the walls.
The display of Dangler Ranges
and Star Deflectors made by J.
Rutherford is one of the features
of the grounds. The advent of
natural gas to Akron has made the
Dangler Range a prime favorite
and a necessity in the masses of
the homes. It is therefore an in
teresting exhibit for the ladies.
More interesting, however, is the
Star Deflector. It is an apparatus

in the future be very beneficial to

Hence everyone takes a natural
interest in auv exhibit which covers
this field. The Akron China Co.
has placed before the people a dis
play of dinner and tea tet never

theii own paiticulai make, and
bearing their name is the pride of
the manufacturers. The various
pieces are very uniformly dis
tributed over the allotted space,
giving vast opportunity for neat

'absolute harmony of the goods iaj
the most striking feature. It is
a simplicity of unit display which in 1
its particular characteristic lieanty '
cannot fail but catch the eye. The
booth is decorated in Elks colors
and located as it is near the main
entrance, has become very popular.

Brothers have overcome thw imper

goods upon the sides of their booth,
giving the ee full play. So the
passers by notice more easily the
new and novel patterns, the fine
ness of the English texture and
the great variety of goods. A line
of made-up goods and fancy vests
attracts much attention. The
vests in several cases are of an

.T. KOCH & CO.
J Koch. & Co , the pioneer cloth
iers of this city, have in a very
novel manner reminded their friends
that fifty-one years of ever-increasing
success have followed them.
The background of their exhibit
consists of exact representations of
I the original Koch & Mayer store in
mous destruction of Cervera's fleet
j at Santiago. The minutest details
are carefully represented, the rug
ged shore, the narrow channel to
the harbor, the two fleets in action
j and the Admirante Oquendo sink
ing. The entire picture is made
out of the various articles found in
a dry goods stoie. It is a wonder
ful accomplishment. The vessels
are kept in motion by a mechanical
device, adding much to the vivid
ness of the reproduction. The ex
actness of color arrangement is also
extremely noticeable. It is a su
perb display which should take the
patriotic public by storm.
Everybody in Akron knows or
knows of the genial Prof. Rich.
He is the man who has reduced
horse-shoeing to a science and is
to-day unsurpassed in his original
art. His exhibit at the Fair is a
mass of glittering shoes tastily ar
ranged and showing the true growth
of this business. The Professor,
himself, is continually at home,
always eager to answer any ques
tion which may advance his cause.
