Fair Grounds, eept. IS. Today opeD
ed bright aod clear wi;h prospects for as
fine weather as bad characterized the two
preceding days. TLe crowd was not as
large today as yesterday, but the attend
ance was f uily as Ure as at any closing
day of the fair in the past few years. A
few more exhibits have arrived, aod the
work of awnliog the premiums was be
gun tcday. The fair was more attractive
today than any of the preceding ones, as
a tug of war between 20 strong men. and
a balloon ascension had been provided in
addition to tbe regular programme. The
first tbion this morning was the exhibi
tion ot drift horses, alter which horses
for all work were rxiibited. aod immedi
ately after dinner occurred tbe display of
all the stock on the grounds. It was
said by those competent to judge that it
FINEST EXHIBITION OF STOCK
that ever occurred on the ground?, and
was ntgblv appreciated by all lovers of
Tbe race track attractions today con
sisted of two rces a running mce open
to all and a free-for-all trotting race. The
former was won by Mattie Hixon in two
straight beats, the race being best two in
three. LydaB. finishing in second placj
and Cot a Belle, who flew the track in
both yesterday '8 and today 's races, being
given third place. Tbe free-for-sll trot
had three entries, David B., Dandy Boy
and Star H. , the firnt three heats being
taken by Datdy Boy in 2:51, 2:44 and
243i, thus giving him the race. He was
seen from tbe first to have tbe tbing all
his own way, and finished each beat in a
little j g under tbe wire. After" tbe
trotting race came a tug of war between
Cordova and Zuma, 10 herculean hus
bandmen from each place doing all with
in their power to win the laurels for his
native health. The tug lasted. two mia
utts and 10 seconds, and was won by
Zuma, amidst the deafening cheers of
hundreds of people.
At this j uncture one of the over effl
cicfus directors s'aMared himself at the
entrance to the judges' stand and exclud
ed a reporter therefrom. He himself
was called down, however, shortly after
ward by one of the superintendents, who
invited him to step down and cut, and
courteously invited tbe reporter to step
At the conclusion of tbe tug of war
Prof. W. R Gould made one of the
prettiest balloon ascensions and parachute
leafs that was ever witnessed in this vi
cinity. Toe balloon arose majestically
to an altitude of about 1,800 feet where
it caught a current of air and drifted
about a quarter of a mile in a northernly
direction; the daring aeronot cut loose
his parachute and dropped like a shot a
distance of about 150 feet when the para
chute spread and he sailed gently down
like some nuge ogre descending upon the
earth. He landed safely.
Then closed tbe exercises for the dav
and tbe peo; le all went heme satisfied.
This is thalast day of thefair, it ia doubt
nil it another will ever occur here. Tbe
association's lease on the erouods runs
oat this yesr, and it is said the older
members are desirous of having some
younger blood take bold and secure
grounds near to town and adjacent if
possible to the railroad, where the fair
will be carried on on a larger scale.
Today also closed
of the 126th Illinois vo'unteers, which
has been in progress here tbe last two
days, a roster of those present being
in tbe last issue 'of toe Argus. At the
business meeting yesterday the following
officers were elected for the ensuing year.
President R. P. McFeeters. Sullivan,
Vice Pres'dsnts A. B. E. Adams,
Rapids City, and D. Bropby. Naomi. III.
Recording secretary G. V. Cochran.
Corresponding secretary J. H. CleN
and. Hock Inland.
Caaplain J N Crowder, Betbeny, 111.
Quaitermasttr P.Hagtman, Sullivan.
After this considerable business of
minor importance was transacted, and
after ex'endiug a vote of thanks to the
speaker of the day the business meeting
adjourned. A hoe oocial time was bad
at the impromptu camp fire last evening,
and the veterans were not forgotten by
the W. R C. of Eugene Lvford post of
Port Bvron, who served 175 with dinner
yesterday and sustained the enviable
reputation agniti today.
