Hie lllc Day.
Thursday was the big day and
proved to be even more pleasant thau
the foresroing. It was warm, and yet
.here was a cool breeze blowing all
'lay. There was an estimated at
tendance of 2,500. There was a ball
ame called at 10:30 between a Kock

Both Wednesday and Thursday
there was a lloman hippodrome race
by two standing riders upon two
pairs of ponies, which the directors
introduced as an extra, and it goes
withont saying that it was appre
ciated anil admired by both young
and old, fully as much as anything
else that was seen at the fair. The
dir'ectsrs likewise put up an extra
running race for a purse of 30; three
fourth mile dash. The following
took the prizes in their order:
Snooks first, the second prize being
divided between McBarnes and Brick

without any rider, which created con
In the afternoon of Wednesday
two unfortunate accidents tc
currrd. In the first heat of the
trotting race while they were at
tempting to make a start, tho horses
belonging to Arthur. Btirrall. of
Kock Island, and August Brandt, of
Joslin. collided, resulting in Brandt's
horse lieing cut outhc legs, and both
of the bicycle sulkies beiug consider
ably smashed up. Burrall's horse
got away and went tearing around
the track several times at break-neck
speed, more than a score of people
who had made an effort, failing to
Atop him. Mr. Btirrall fears his
horse is seriously injured. In the
running race, the" rider of Lou Key
nold's horse (a colored boy from
Uovk Island) allowed himself to
slide, saddle and all, on the lirst
turn, and holding on to the lines
dragged the horse down upon him.
He was carried tiff the ground on a
stretcher and lr. Looker was called
for. many fearing that he was ser
iously injured, but it was found that
although he had sustained severe
braises about the face and head, yet
he will get over it. The running
race was completed by other horses.
The Lest Day.
The last day of the. fair was that
in the fore part of the day, closing
up at noon. Nevertheless there were
about 1,000 visitors. Best three in
live, tho winners caiuo in in the fol
lowing order: Tristor, first: Con
tractor, second; Jerry Bishrp. third;
Uozona.lo-.irtn. lime, 2:0, 2:30.
The dog races with ponies, and the
Roman hippodrome were sandwiched
in as usual which proved very' satis
factory to the visitors.
The finish was a running race,
open to all; purse 10. The follow
ing horses were the winners: Little
Jake, first; McBarnes, second; Brick
Pomeroy, third; Snooks, fourth.
This ended the last day of the fair
at Joslin for the year 1595, which c
the whole has been satisfactory to

The new woman has invaded the
cireus and is a feature with the Bar
num & Bailey Greatest Show on
F.arth. The newest woman with the
circus is tho female clown, Evetta on
the bills, Miss Matthews in private
life, a plump young Knglish woman,
whom Mr. Bailey's agent found in
London and persuaded to come to
America. Miss Matthews is an ac
robat, and she indulges in odd an
tics and burlesque feats of skill, as
well as in the pantomime aud knock
about tricks of circus c,lowns. She
has proved a great favorite with au
diences in New York City.
With the female clown is the fe
male ring-master (or ring-mistress),
who cracks a whip just like a man,
keeps the equestrienne's horse at the
proper gait, and acts as a foil to the
clown. Mille. Crastoni, who is an
expert horsewomap, has added the
ring-master's act to the list of ac
complishments that have made her
valuable to the Barnum & Bailcv
show. Of course, the woman clown
and the ricg-iuistress go into the
ring with a woman rider, making a
"woman number." Josie Ashton is
the equestrienne of the female trio.
There are plenty of lady riders with
ibe Barnum & Bailey show this
season. Inure are l be three Meers
sisters, dainty and skillful Kose,
Marie and Ouika aud' a serpentine
lance on horseback is one of their
numbers. Trilbv on horseback is
another, while they make a pretty

The big show, with its equestrian
features, the great aerial acts of the

the three-ring circus, the zoological
collection, the Ethnological congress,

exhibit at Davenport on the Kocking
baui road, next Saturday, Sept. 21.
A play that abounds in enjoyable

reasonably sure of liberal patronage

The Hustler" may therefore be put
down among the popular events of
the season. It matters little about
the dramatic worth of the piece when
diverting acts by clever actors are
successfully intertwined with the
dialogue. There is something of a
plot, however, to "The Hustler," and
if the story is subordinated to the
more exhilarating quantity the
multifarious incidental gems of
music and mirth it is because the
public prefers the latter. Novel and
interesting special acts and all the
latest ideas in songs and dances, to
gether with many brilliant clTccts in
costumery are said to form strong
features in "The Hustler" this season
and the company embraces 25 ladies
and gentlemen whose corned v talent
is admittedly of a very superior
order. Among the members will be
found John T. Tiernct, Charles A.
Loder, Ilarrv Fov, George W. Kerr,
Charles Udell, Gus Mills, Miss Dolly

So far as known no writer on evoln

rental kablo growth of hailstones. There
was a time when tho 'reflation size
was about that of a small pea. From
this it has increased through variouf
stages to tho size of a niarblo, a hickory

of hailstones "larger than baseballs,"
aud it is not even stated how much
larger. Cm it lie that this cmtiunou?
