WOOD COUNTY FAIR
Bowling Green Filled With People
Visiting the Exhibition.
All roads lead to Bowling Green
this week and every Wood county cit
izen who can possibly find tho "time
is taking a day or two for visiting
tho biggest Fair ever.
Tho Wood County Fair Is known
as being the best county Fair In Ohio,
and this year the exhibits seem larger
and better than ever before.
Tho races are first class and many
speedy horses are entered. If you
miss this Fair you will regret it.
Tho registration in tho Collego of
Agriculture, Ohio State University,
during tho first three days of open
ing week is the largest In the history
of the institution. Up to September
20, 9G1 students had entered tho
two and four year courses, 20 moro
than tho entire number last year.
Indications are that before tho second
week has ended tho agricultural col
lego will have more than 1,000 stud
onts. For tho entlro University tho
number having registered during tho
first three days was 2,991, which is
251 moro than on tho samo dato last
year. Tho short winter courses last
year had an attendance of 273, mak
ing a total of 1,217 students in agri
culture In 1911-12. Tho total in tho
University was 3,928. Tho present
prospects are that thero will bo a
record-breaking attendanco in tho
short courses this winter.

The one-year-old daughter of Mr.

Leaving the Grand Canyon and
journeying back to Williams, we
'stopped at tho hotel The Fray Mar
cos, which is somo hotel and con
structed of cement and as cool as any
cavern ever you entere'd. It Is ele
gantly furnished and in every re
spect the proper thing, but to a nerv
ous man there is a sort of uncanny
feeling after getting into a room and
closing the door behind you. Why?
Well, being constructed of cement,
the rooms seem to me like vaults,
and when the door closes It does so
with a peculiar sound that makes me
feel as though I was enclosed In my
last resting place, and I can hardly
resist the temptation to open the door
and call for the sexton to come and
dig me out. Ugh, it's such a queer
feeling. I suppose tho name Fray
Marcos is Spanish as nearly every
thing else in the locality seems to be,
but I think a more appropriate name
would have been "Mark-us," as It
seems to me they took us for marks
and easy ones at that, as It only costs
$3.50 per minute to look in one of
those rooms. That was the only
trouble I had with my friend Rider.
He looks so much like "easy money"
that everybody thought he was a
banker and I was his secretary, and
they hit us with the banker price list
every place we went after leaving Los
Angeles. However, It did seem swell
to be taken for a member of a bank
er's party and" be charged accordingly
even If I was certain of wearing thin
underwear the balance of the year to
Again resuming our journey, we
had the doubtful pleasure of passing
through "Death Valley," where "many
weary wanderers have paid the pen
alty of their rashness with their lives.
"Death Valley," as many will remem
ber, is the section of the western
desert that has been well advertised
throughout this section by the "20
mule team borax," which Is almost a
household phrase. This "20-muIe
team" was put out of business by
the building of a narrow-guage rail
road which crossed the desert for the
purpose of bunging out the borax,
and we saw one of tho trains, and it
is this section of the uninhabitable
part of the country that claimed the
life of one of my schoolmate friends
for his daring. One of my earliest
chums was William B. Slawson, the
youngest member o the Slawson
family, who once lived in the Warner
property on Front street. Will went
west about twenty years ago, and be
came a very capable mining engineer.
After passing through many danger
ous experiences in the west, and
seeming to bear a charmed life, he
headed a party of explorers who went
down into "Death Valley," and never
again appeared alive. Only ono of
his party succeeded In getting back
and ho was a Mexican who told the
story of how tho party became worn
out with the heat, lack of food and
water, and that my chum and friend
Slawson died out in tho desert from
exhaustion', a victim of the luro of

COST OF KEEPING HORSES
The truth of the statement that
the methods of handling and the
stable accomodations have a marked
Influence on the amount of feed re
quired to keep a horse in good con
dition has been proven by investiga
tion made in Columbus by the animal
husbandry students of the College ef
Agriculture, Ohio State University.
These investigations havo been car
ried on for several years, over 1,000
head of horses have been included.
It was. found that the concerns with
the poorest accomodations for their
horses and where the least care was
given were paying out the largest
amount for feed. The average cost of
keeping horses in Columbus is 40.1
cents a day, and contrary to popular
belief heavy express horses are fed
for nearly two and a half cents less
than light driving horses. The lowest
cost was $89.02 per year In the case
of an underfed animal, and the high
est cost was $229.02, a stallion being
fitted for show. Ono noticeable fact
was the absence of variety in the ra
tion, the principle roughage being
timothy hay the year round and it
was common to find this feed given
In excess. Corn and oats constituted,
tho principal grains fed. In one in -
stance a saving of $11.15 per animal
or a yearly Bavlng of $CC9 was
brought about by the use of four
pounds of oat straw In place of a
similar amount of hay.

The little drama occurred in Mau
mee and it was a Maumee Valley car
conductor who played the heroic
part. The woman Is one of that class
who seem to be very anxious to "have
her own way," regardless of how
much It may discommode others. The
car was crowded and was also a fow
minutes late. There were several
passengers who desired to get off the
car as soon as possible in order to
make connections with the Bowling
Green car, and before they could do
so the woman stepped on the lower
step, thus blocking the passage so
that others were unable to get oft the
car. The conductor gently requested
her to step down and wait until the
passengers alighted but she refused
and said she was all right where she
was. Again the conductor kindly yet
sternly refused to permit her to block
the vestibule and she was compelled
to step down where she belonged,
but she used her ever ready weapon
by making a very unkind remark
about the "stupidity of these con
ductors." The conductor is to be congratu
lated upon the gentlemanly manner
In which he did his duty, and If ho Is
reported wo hope Manager Joe En
rlght will give him a medal for
