but as the nrst is usually spent in ar
ranging the exhibits the utti ndaiice was
uot very large, and no urogram was
earned out, it heing reserved aud will be
presented during the I tt Iwo das of the
fair, which utuiily have the krye attend
ance. The displays lliiB far are siid to ex
ceed those of any previous year, and as
they continue to irrive daily it gives
Itromise of being one of the most success
ful fairs yet given at these tr.mt.dt.
The first building found on entering
the grounds is
FLORAL II ALL
wherein choice display of tl)ets and pot
ted planis of every di'scription are being
exhibited, besides an elaborate display of a
thousand and one articles of fancy work
which are beins: sold or exhibited.
One of the most conspicuous exhibits
in Floral Hull this year is
the dairy and kitchen department which
contains a tine display of dtiry products
and kitchen delicacies. The next build
ing met by the v'sitor is Agricultural
Hall, in whici the most prominent is the
horticultural display, which contains a
large number of varieties of lucious home
grown fruits and shows that this climate
will produce some of the finest virie'its
of fruits if their culture is given the prop
This hall also contains a number
of displays from the mercanti e
establishments in the vicinity, soraj or
which are very pretty. - The race track
features today consisted of two races a
3-minute class trotting race and a run
ning race. In the former, which was
best three out of five hea's. Maud 11.
won the first heat in 3:04. David B. won
the second in 2:55; Maud H. again
took the third in 2:55 and managed to
win the fourth in 2:53, which gave her
the race, with David B. second, and
Queen C. third. Maud H. is owned by
.1. F. Martin, of Fulton. David B by A.
C Beyer, of Davenport, and Q teen C. by
Joseph Coe, of LeClaire.
In the running race there were three
entries, best three in five, half mile heats,
Lyda D being an easy winner with Mat-
tie Hixon second and Cora Belle third.
Juhnson, who rode Cora Belle, was
thrown in the third beat, but not seriously
injured, though he receiyed a very severe
NOTES OF THE FAIR.
"Sister" Payne was up shaking bands
with the farmers and making himself as
agreeable as possible.
Prof. Gould makes a balloon as:ension
and parachute leap on Friday.
Tomorrow (Thursday) is the opening
day of the reunion of the One Hundred
and Twenty-sixth Illinois Volunteers, and
a large crowd is expected. The Womens'
Relief Corps teats are already on the
ground and it is thought that a large
representation of the old soldiers will be
present Thursday and Friday.
All the "catch penny schemes are
doing a good business on tbe grounds,
but there is no wheel or gambling device
of any kind, and even the man with the
little "shell game" is not to be found
Lozs and Logging.
The Chippewa Logging company
their annual meeting at Beef Slough
week . The officer? elected were:
Frederick Weyerhauser, president an 1
treasurer; D. H. Moon, of Eau Claire,
vice president; H. G. Chichester, Chip
pewa Falls, secretary. Peter Muster, of
Muscatine, is one of the board of direc
tors. Tbe Lum'.eimin indignantly says:
"The usual annual kick has baen made
by the steamboat men against tbe man
agement of the government reservoirs.
They claim that the water is held in the
interest of tbe lumbermen and
the dams are only opened at
such times as the lumbermen desire
to get a few logs. To this Major Jones,
who has charge of tbe dams, replies that
tbe statement is false; that the reservoirs
rrs operated in tbe interests of naviga
tion as a whole, and logging is a part of
it. The saw log of commerce, he says,
is entitled to the same consideration as
any craft that fliats. He explains that
navigation has not been mtintained as it
coull have' been had the reservoits been
filled. But they have never been more
thn half full excrpt on one occasion in
1887, when there was a cloud-burst. The
reservoirB are now open. Major Janes
says the flow of water has been made
much better than it otherwise would have
been but for the reservoirs.
Th Farmers)' FrU ration.
Tbe federation of fanners' organization
held their quarterly meeting at Cambridge
Tuesday. There were about 30 delegates
present, representing about 2 000 organ
ized farmers in the F. M. B. A, T. A. I.
U. alliance and grange. The feeling of
the meeting was in favor of a people's
party, opposed to both the old parties.
A resolution favoring woman suffrage
was carried, though with much opposi
tion. It was resolved to invite other or
ganizations to attend their meetings, and
a committee consisting of John Miller, of
Galva; Lesl e II anna, of Zim; M. Gil
bert, of Geneseo; and W. C. Wilson, of
South Moline, was appointed to do what
they could to bring about a closer union
of the various organiz ttions. The mon
ey questiou will come up for discussion
at the February meeting.

markable Cantraot in the F.ITeet of
Two Pi-oas on the complexion.
The slow aoeorptinn of many poisons
charges in some more or less modified
form the complexion, but arsenicand am
monia show their effect about as quickly
as sny. Tbe pooular belief that arsenic
clears tbe complexion has led many silly
women to kill themselves with it in small,
It produces a waxy, ivory like appear
ance of tbe skin during a certain stage of
the poisoning, but its terrfble aftereffects
have become too well known to make it
of common use as a cosmetic.
The effects of an uionia upon the com
plexion are directly the op oite to that of
arsenic. Tbe first symptom of ammonia
poisoning which appears among those who
work in ammonia factories is a discolora
tion of the skin of tbe nose and forehead.
This generally extends over thu face until
the complexion has a stained, blotched,
and unsightly appearance. With people
wbo take ammonia into their STStems in
smaller rinses, as with their water or food,
these striking symptom do not appear so
soon Tbe only effect of tie poison that
is visible for a lime is a general unwholc
someness and sallownvss of the com
plexion. Many people sre slowly absorbing
ammonia poison without knowing it.
Tbe use of ammonia in the manufactures
has greatly increased of late, and it is
unquestionably usi d as an adulterant in
certain food prep- ri'ions. Oilicinl an
alysis have plainly shown its use even in
such cheap articles of every day con
sumption as baking powders. The con
tinued absorption of ammonia in even
minute quantities as an adulterant in
food is injurious not merely from its ef
fect upon tbe complexion, but because it
destroys the coating of the stomach and
causes dyspepsia and kindred evils.
Prof, Long, of Chicago, is authority
for the statement it at, if to 50,000,000
parts of water there is one part of am
monia, tbe water is dangerous.
Farmer Burns a a lnxllint.
Martin Burns, the Big Rock "farmer.
who has made something of a reputation
as a wrestler, and has many admirers
among the sporting fraternity of Rock
Island, has jjst gained fresh laurels as a
pugilist. In a pugilistic contest at
Wheatland with tbe "Prussian," Martin
was awarded the fight in the ninth round.
Tbe struggle was arranged for 11 rounds,
but in tbe ninth the ' Prussian," who was
beginning to have a double vision, threw
up tbe sponge and wanted no more of it.
It bad been a spirited affair uo to this
point, bbth of them landing quite fre
quently. Although Burns was knecked
down in tie sixth round, be considered it
Out a trine and came up smiling in the
seventh. His well trained phvs'que wt s
too much for tbe I russian to battle
aga:nst, and therefore it was that the lat
ter came out second best.
The fight was according to Queens-bury
rules, was witnessed by about 200 sports.

place in the village dance hall, the ring
being chalked off on the fl wr.
