The Moline Dispatch presents these
suggestions in support of the horse fair
feature in connection with the Twin-Cily
It has been suggested that one of the
uses to which ths Columbian exposition
grounds could be put would be the hold
lng or a norse fair for the sale of horses
each month . Such - sales have been car
ried on in many cities in northern Illi
nois, and always with great success.
Sterling. Morrison. Rochedale, Ma. Car
roll, and other cities, hold them monthly
during a large part of the year, and have
done so for man Tears. The nrimarv
thought of the horse sale is to bring the
seller and buyer together. Ordinarily,
when an eastern buyer' wishes to pur
chase a carload of horses, he locates him
self at some livery stable in the town.
hires a horse and carriage by the week
and drives around the country till
he has enough horses of the kind be
wants to fill a car. This takes
a week or two, and is expensive. The
seller has but one purchaser and if he is
at all anxious to sell must take what is
offered bim, even if he knows it is less
than his stock is worth. By this method
the seller is always at a disadvantage,and
tne Duyer loses so much time that, though
he gets his horses for less money than he
otherwise would, he is not much the
gainer. The horse fair obviates both
these troubles. A. day is fixed on which
the buyers and sellers will meet. In Ster
ling ine regular norse fair day was on a
certain Wednesday in et.cn month during
tne selling season . On that day horses
would be brought to the city from long
distances in every direction. More than
a hundred bones would be on sale at
times. These would include all classes
of horses, good, bad and indifferent, light
and heavy, cheat) and costly, but for all
tnese mere would be buyers. Not only
wouu tne city ouyers fce pre ent, but
lamer wno wanted borses, res
idents of the town and others
would be on hand to purchase. Compe
titinn would be created in this way, and
horses will sell for from 10 to 15 percent
foore than when tbev were sold sinclv
The city buyer would come in the morn'
ing, buy a car-load of horses, and ship
them the same evening. He could well
afford to pay $10 more for each horse
than be could under the old system.
This is one use to which the exposi
tion grounds could be put. A. market
for horses could be created here that
would being crowd of farmers to the
two cities, and would make these mar
ket ctties tor a circuit around. It would
be something ot permanent value to the
cities and country, and would be one of
the really valuable feature of the grounds.
Even if there should be a failure in the
purchase of the grounds, this idea wou'ni
be a valuable one for the cities. It has
been successful wbercver it has been
properly worked, and it might easily be
made a success nere.

I HAD CATARRH.
The speaker, Mr. Edward Nesson, lives

"I live within a few miles of Sioux
City, and on seeing one of the Davenport
papers I read of the success the Scott
Medical Institute was having in the treat
ment of catarrh . I resolved 1 would
come here and try what could be done for
my esse, and now I can say I am going
some a well man.
"My trouble has existed for the past
six years, I contracted one eold after
another, and successive colds rave me a
bad case of catarrh. I had a dull heavy
sensation in my head, over my eyea My
nose and head was stopped up so it in
terfered with my breathing. I had a
constant dropping in the back part of my
throat and hard lumps would form in my
nostrils. The discharge frem my nose
was copiaus and tbe sense of smell al
most destroyed . I had almost constant
kuzzing or roaring noises m my ears. My
throat was sore at times and occasionally
I had severe pain in my lunes. I could
not sleep well and would awake in . the
morning very tired.
"These distressing svmptoms began to
subside after tbe second treatment, and
now after six weeks' treatment I feel like
a new man." I
