THE FARMER'S FAIR.
Interesting Experiences at
A SPLENDID EXHIBITION.
Racing: on the Track—A Rous
ing Democratic Rally.
For the last two days Downey lias been
astir in a manner far beyond her wont,
for the Fifth Annual Fair of the Los An
geles County Agricultural Association is
in full swing in her midst. The attend
ance from this city has been very good,
and the surrounding country has also
furnished a large quota of persons anx
ious to participate in the fun that always
attends these celebrations. In the rules
and regulations published by the direct
ors some time ago, it was announced
that no gambling would be allowed, nor
the sale of intoxicating liquors permit
ted on the fair grounds, and these orders
have been strictly adhered to. The
pavilion has been decorated with
great taste, and the exhibits are
of a nature to impress the vis
itor with the wondrous productiveness
of the soil that brought them forth. On
entering the Exhibition building tho at
tention is first attracted to a sign, "We
greet thee," the lettering of which iB done
in lemons on a cypress background. In
every direction wave cypresses and
palms and the atmosphere is laden with
the perfume of the beauteous flowers and
ripened fruit, which is arranged in
tempting array on the many stands and
booths. The display is a truely repre
sentative one, being not confined to
Downey City alone but including the sur
rounding settlements of Kanchito, Nor
walk, New River and Rivera. Kanchito
has sent in a splendid assortment of
fruits and farm products consisting
of peaches, walnuts, corn, ap
ples, potatoes, oranges, lemons
and pears. Mr. J. McGaugh
of New River, who took the sweepstakes
last year and who is liable to do so this
year also, has on exhibition nineteen
varieties of pears, about the same of
apples and a number of quinces. Mrs.
W. Carruthers, of Downey, contributes a
well gotten up collection of preserves and
jelließ of every description and near by is
the fruit display of Mr. Willis Newton,
which betokens careful attention by a
master hand. The general display of
Mr. James Stewart, also of Downey,"is a
very fine one and contains twenty-two
varieties of luscious-looking grapes, four
varieties of squash, some Florida melons
of last ye ar's and this year's crops, three
varieties of quinces and four varieties of
tigs. Mr. Stewart is called the "fig man"
of the district and he well deserves the
title for he has got some splendid looking
specimens of that fruit. They are dried,
pressed, pickled and preserved, and in
every instance indicate that thoy are as
fine as any that can possibly be raised.
Mr. Stewart also shows fourteen varie
ties of apples, four varieties of pears,
pomegranates, etc., and his display is
one of the finest in the entire exhibition.
There is no doubt that Mr. E. L. Barnett
was determined to arrange his display in
such a manner that everyone would be
compelled to Btop and admire it, and bow
well ho has succeeded was evidenced by
the admiring throngs gathered in front
of his stand all day. He has formed a
pyramid of grapes of six varieties, and at
it's base are placed quantities of onions,
lemons, oranges and squashes. Mr. James
Root of Rivera also has a fine collection of
farm productions consisting of grapes,
pears, figs dried and green, prunes,
oranges, dried apples and walnuts. The
display is a good one and reflects great
credit on those responsible for it. In a
corner of the room is a quantity of horse
trappings and near by is the tine arts de
partment, which presents many novel at
tractions. It includes a shoulder cape
by Miss Gertie Foor, a young lady of 9
years of age, an assortment of fine hand
kerchiefs and laces sent in by Miss S.
Huff, a tidy by Miss Belle Cheney, a
framed hair wreath by Mrs. J. 1). Philips,
a flower piece embroidered on black vel
vet by Miss Stephens, a crazy pillow and
embroidered pillow sham by Miss I. Hol
man, four flower pieces by Miss Rose
Darby, a table scarf and crazy tidy by
Miss C. C. Banks and an embroidered
table cover and crazy cushion by Mrs.
THE VEGETABLE DEPARTMENT
Contains some of the most noticeable
novelties on record. Massive onions,
which run 530 sacks to the acre;
squashes, any one of which an ordinary
man cannot lift four feet from the
ground; sweet potatoes, one of which
would feed a whole Southern
family, and watermelons that the
average colored gentleman would find
hard to carry out of a patch
by moonlight; such are some of the
many attractions that meet the eye.
Corn stands in sentinel array all about
the stands, and, ranging us it does from
ten to fourteen feet in height, looks very
imposing to the ordinary visitor.
One great feature about the
entire exhibition, both fruit, flowers

THE DAY'S SPORT.
The programme arranged to entertain
the visitors was a good one, opening at
10 o'clock with a grand parade of all the
stock entered for exhibition. The stock
was led around and around the track,
and excited much favorable comment,
as in the train were a num
ber of thoroughbred cattle and
horses. During this proceeding Meine
Bros.' band arrived and took up
a position in front of the grand stand,
and as soon as the strains of the music
were heard, vast throngs of people began
pouring into the enclosure. Ladies were
decidedly in majority in the reserved
seats and looked very enticing, most of
them being attired in the cool, white
dresses, affected so generally throughout
the country during the warm weather.
After the stock had left the track, the
first race took place, which was a 200
--yard dash for boys between 12 and 10
years of age. Three entries were made
and the result, proved to be practically a
walk-over for Joe Valdez, J. Pallett
coming in second and Thomas
Stewart third. Next came tbe
boy's foot-race for those aged
under 12 years, and fourteen entries
' put in an appearance. The distance was
the same as for the preceeding contest,
and Jimmy Stewart came in first, Willy
Crawford second, and John Fleming
| third. Adjournment was then taken for
lunch, and the majority of those present
patronized a large tent where the ladies
of the Baptist church supplied an excel
lent repast at moderate charges.
The afternoon sport opened with a
game of baseball between nines from
Arteria and San Pedro, in which the
city-by-the-sea carried off the honors by
a score of 18 to 10. The trotting race for
3-year-olds that had not been named
in a race in 1887, was carried off by Mr.
Rodgers' Prim, Sultan taking second
honors. Tbe sport closed with a running
race, one-half mile and repeat, which
was won by Hickey'sTom Coco, Amazon
receiving second money.
A DEMOCRATIC CARNIVAL.
A grand Democratic rally was held
later on in the evening, under the aus
pices of the Downey Bandana Club. It
was a glorious affair, the enthusiasm of
the citizens venting itself in a torchlight
procession and an attendance at the
grand stand that looked as if the
whole town were present. Stirring
speeches were made by the Hon.
W. S. Herndon, Calvin Edgerton,
Judge Depuy and W. S. Herrmann. The
Rivera, Whittier, Norwalk and Boyle
Heights Democratic clubs were in attend
ance and added great eclat to the occa
A counter-attraction in the shape of a
concert was given at Frankel's Hall and

frey, tenor; Mr. W. C. Stone, bass; Miss

Secure Your Seats.
The sale of seats for the entire engage
ment of the Palmer Company begins this
morning at 10 a. m. at the Opera House.
Next Monday evening, September 17th,
Mr. A. M. Palmer's company from the
Madison-square Theatre, New York, will
begin an engagement of six nights and
one matinee, presenting all the greatest
successes which have been produced for
the last two years. Mr. Palmer must
feel very sure of success to open his
season here with Sir Chas. Bart Young's
great success of two continents, Jim the
Penman, to be followed by Saints and
Sinners, Heart of Hearts and Partners,
making a repertoire of very solid and en
during array. The company is now as it
has always been, the leading
dramatic organization of America,
and conceded to be the largest
and most complete one on the American
Stage, and in reviewing it we must men
popularly known as "Young Salvini."
This son of the greatest of tragedian is to
day considered one of the best of lead
ing men, and perhaps one of the most
original of character actors. J. H. Stod
dart is one of the oldest and best known
actors in the country, never was out of an
engagement and never was in a traveling
company. For the last twenty years he
has only served under two managements
Wallack's and Palmer's. Frederick Rob
inson is an accomplished actor, who
came from England some fifteen years
ago. He is a tea?her of elocution an d
taught Mrs. James Brown Potter
who recited "Ostler Joe," which caused
her to adopt the stage. C. F. Flockton
is an English actor and has only been in j
this country a few years. Character act
ing is his lice. Marie Burroughs is one
of the handsomest as well as one of the
best young actresses on the stage. She
is a Oalifornian and has been with the
Madison Square Theater over five years.
Annie Russell, the ingenue, is the best
known impersonator of that interesting
type of American girl who is ingenious,
soft-hearted and good that all young men
fall in love with her. May Brook
lyn has a reputation as being
one of the most natural actresses
on the stage to-day. Her impersona
tion of "Mrs. Ralston," in Jim, the Pen
man, is said to be remarkable. Mrs. E.
J. Phillips is one of the best old women
on the stage, but not really so old as
some of the characters she plays. Louis
M as?en, the second juvenile actor of the
company, is a manly and handsome
looking fellow. Walden Ramsey is an
other very handsome man with tbe onez
princez, who is commonly supposed to be
Mr. Palmer's luck. The reason for this
superstition and supposition is the fact
that Ramsey has been with Palmer
since he took tbe Union Square Theater,
ten years ago, and has been cast in every
successful piece since. Then there is
a Mr. Holland, of the well known
theatrical Holland Little Church around
the corner, family and half dozen other
male and female members of the organi
zation, all of whom will be seen for the
tirst time in this city. There is no doubt
whatever that Mr. Palmer's Company
will meet with one of tbe most successful
seasons, both artistically and financially
ever witnessed in this city.
Cruel Desertion of a Child
THE POLICE COMMISSIONERS.
A Most Pleasant Surprise and a Fine
An infant was found in a basket on
the steps of a house on the corner of
Ninth and Maple avenue early yesterday
morning. The child had evidently been
born only a few hours previous, and had
received no care or attention of any kind.
It would soon have perished had it not
been discovered. It was sent to Mrs.
Watson's at No. 6 Sand street and prop
erly cared for. There was no clue in the
basket as to the child's origin, and for
clothing it had nothing but a piece of a
sheet. A bundle of cotton was laid un
der it. At a later hour it was ascer
tained tbat a hack had driven up near
the place the baby was found, and that
the man, with slippers on his feet, had
alighted and deposited the infant. This
is tbe only clue as to how the infant

appropriate words. The regalia is said
to be the handsomest on the Coast.
