grounds. Thursday than at any one
time during ttip twenty-seven years
existence of the Charlevoix County
Agricultural Society. The crowd was
estimated at over 50Q. nearlv a thou
sand njore than at any other onp
time. The Uoyne City boat, which
vas engaged for the day by the Asso

people from Gaylord, Elinira, Hoyne
Falls and Boyne City. The Steamer
Hum brought big crowds from Charr
levoix, while the special train services
from Tetoskey, Charlevoix, Ccptral
Lake, Ellsworth and Bellalre, and
from Grayling, Frederic, Deward and
Alba brought lu goqcj sized crowds.
The Wednesday crowd was estimat
ed at 2000 while the Friday atten,
dance was oyer that of years gone
Without doubt the feature atjqve
all others that swelled the attendance
were the daily flight of the aeroplane.
Northern Michigan cities have been
particularly unfortunate in picking
lemon exhibitions in this line, and
the tfrst flight north of Grand
Rapid3 took place on t he grounds at
East Jordan late Wednesday after
noon. On Thursday three flights
were given and on Friday once.
The machine used here was a
Curtis Bl-Planc equipped with a
Kjrkharu six cylinder motor of 60
horse power. The gentlernen In
pharge qf the aeroplane were; IUy F.
Harnette of Danville, ll., general
manager; Clarence Bartchel of pan
yille, owner; Chris Fasschanette,
plane-man and Wnj. Bender, machi
nist. John Sverwerson of Oregon,
Jll., was the driver and he made some
beautiful flights, going up nearly
000 feet and remaining in the air
for ten minutes or more at a time.
The aeroplane people ful filled their
pontract here in every particular and
have the hearty good-will p( our Fair
pfllcials and the thousands who wit
nessed ttie flights.
In the line of exhibits, the poultry
and fancy fowls probably ranked the
best from an exhibition standpoint,
There were birds here from Bay City
Midland, and practically all points
The exhibit of horses, sheep and
swine was excellent, and the new
barn for nhecp and swine showed the
stock to advantage.
In the Floral Hall, the exhibit of
fancy work, canned fruits, and school
work was better than the average
heretofore. The greatest, falling off

and unusual interests. He has taken
a subject which keenly appeals to

the hands of a few men, This Mr.
Kleiu uses as a background for a
love story which wins and holds the
onlooker's sympathy. At the same
time he nas driven home without
preaching or moralizing the fact of
the menace which lies in the abuse of
capital and ortimcs fearful results
upon -those whr misuse It, and those
who oppose its misuse.
In the plot, for a story Mr. Klein
has taken a Judge who after long and
faithful service on the bench has been
impoverished, his honesty questioned
and his position placed iu jeopardy,
from having handed xdown a decision
unfavorable tu the great amalgamated
interests of John Burkett ltyler and
his followers. His uprightness, a
thorn lu the side of the capitalists,
induces them to resort to a scheme to
dishonor and depose him. The

Women Who Know Silver,
Rich women who are ever on the
watch tor antique bits of silver or pew
ter, says the New York Tribune, have
taken to carrying small silver-mounted
microscopes, to that the hallmarks
can be examined with case and the
accuracy of the date be determined.
Dealers iq antiques are very apt to
talk glibly of Qeorge J I. silver or of
George III., and even qf William and,
Mary, pieces of those of good Queen
Anne, and this prattle Is bound to
make an impression with those who
do not know, and can also fool the
