Faib Ghoi kds, Se t. 17. Ttiere were
utmly 4 000 peop e on the Coe fair
crouada today, and altbougb tbe weather
was somewhat warm it was just tbe kind
of a day to enjoy the shade with which
the trounda are im.ply provided. The
exhibits continue to arrive daily, and the
Mi ck show this j-;ar is suid to exceed
that of any previous year. Tbe stalls
are all full and if ftocte continues to ar
rive more quarters will have to be pro
vided. TnE vegetable
display this jer is particularly flnfl and
attracts more atteiition than any other
display on the grounds. As fine a lot of
poultry as one wouM cire to see is being
exhibited here and the manner in whi ;h
fiey are looked afu r as regards cleanlN
nesnfl(ta gn at ciedit on the exhibi
t.'rs. The association's action in looking
after the wnnts of the people by provid
ing an abundant suppiy of clean ice
water, and in o;hr ways looking after
the comfort of tut visitors is commend
ahle. A number of new mercantile
displays have been put in, among tbe
most attractive of which is that
of E. K. Hopkins, tUe Port Bjron jiWi
e!ir. A large number of the county
officios and people ijenerally from tbe
lower end were in attendance today
and it is thought tLat the attendance to
morrow will equal, if not exceed, that of
today. The featurts today on
were a 2:45 class trotting race and a run
ning race by hoise owned in Coe. In
the former there were three entries:
Star, David B. and Maud H., the first
named horse winning three straight heats
in 2.50, 2:50 and 2 51 respectively, giv
ing him the race, v i'h Maud H. a close
second and David B thir 1. The race
was closely contested, each heat being
finished with tbe horses neck and neck.
The running race, which was best two in
three half mile hea s, was won by Kittie
in two straight hehts in 1:07 and 1:07 J
respectively, with Dt.nly te:ond and Mol
lie S. third.
The tenth acnui.l reunion of the 12Gih
Illinois voluntterr. opened h?re today.
I nis morning the veterans began to as
semble at an early hour, and
a. 11:3J ocIo(k bugle call was
sounded, and he line of march
to dinner was forrr.ed where a heart? meal
was partaken of, after which a pro
;rfirr.a.e consisting of music and addresses
whs carried out. It was opened by prayf r
by Chnp'.ain Crow ler after which Judee
t-ifarle delivered a feeling a.:rirefs on the
o!j soldier, and was followed by Rev. G.
W Teregoy who f peke briefly on the sur
viving veterans (f the war, after which
IJ-v C'rowdcr, reiimental chaplain, de
livered an andress which whs weil re
ceived by the larg- audience precen. The
progrsmnce was iittr?persed with music
by the L'ght Guard band, of Moline,
which never fails to please where it is
heaid. This closed the exercises for the
lny and an impromptu camp fire is talked
cf for this evening. The roster of the

A Buiidinx Cornea Don a,
Yesterday morning a section of the
floor of the Mutual Wheel company's
dry-house in Moline gave way and about
24 feet of the east side of the building
wa9 forced out by the pressure of a quan
tity of hub blocks stored in the builing.
The blocks were scattered about and un
til these could be removed it wae impos
sible to determine the cause of the mis
hap, but it was thought to be due to a
faulty construction of the piers . It was
apparent that one row of trie piers across
the building had given way, letting
down the ends of two rows of joists,
making a space of about 21 feet the en
tire width of the building. A quantity of
window frames were stored under the
dry-house, and some of these are some
what broken by the weight suddenly
thrown upon them. The daaage is es
timated to be only about ( 100, unless a
storm should arise before the hub blocks
can be removed to a secure shelter, in
which event the loss wou'd be very ma

"I see yon make emblems here," he
observed as he entered, a store on Grand
street, where a gilded beehive was dis
played in the window.
Tve been thinking for some time that
I'd like an emblem. I think everybody
ought to have one. I believe a man can
do four times as much with an emblem
as without one."
"An emblem is like a motto, you
know," continued the caller. "My mot
to ha3 always been 'Excelsior.' If I
hadn't adopted it I don't know what
would have become of me. It has sus
tained me through many trials and trib
ulations." Jnst here ho seemed to wipe a tear
from his eye, and the emblem maker re
garded him with a puzzled look as he
"What sort of an emblem were you
"That's what bothers me," replied the
other. "I diu think at fiit of getting a
beehive, but I dunno. A beehive is an
emblem of industry, if I remember
"Bees are powerful workers?"
"But they only work in tha summer,
you know, while I work all the year
round; indeed, most of my work is done
in tlio winter. The beehive, therefore,
wouldn't be t,uite the thing. I shouldn't
want to deceive the public by display
ing a false etablem. No one ever makes
anything by deception."
'I had also thought of the heaver.
They say the beaver is a powerful
worker, but you see he works mostly at
night, while I am working both night
and day. If I should get a beaver it
would be deceiving the public. I sup
pose that a blacksmith's half arm hold
ing a hammer is also a sign of industry?"
" 1 es, sir."
"But it hardlv fills the bill. The
blacksmith works only nine hours a day,
you know, and sometimes he is out of
work for weeks at a time."
"Yon think you want Industry, eh?"
queried the manufacturer.
"W ell, mostly, but not altogether. It
ought to be a combination of industry,
sorrow, grief and truth. Do you think
you could invent something to stand for
"Hardly. Emblems are supposed to
represent a business. What particular
business are vou engaged in?"'
