MILK AND BUTTER TESTS TO-NIGHT. Of Interest to Farmers and Dairymen. Very Important Feature of the State Fair. Rock-Drilling Contest to be Resumed Morrow Night. First Grand Stock Parade Thursday Morning— increasing Interest Shown in the Racing Events. Several thousand people visited the Pavilion last night to see the splendid exhibition therein and incidentally to see who was there and what they wore. The Pavilion is, in fact, a great place in which to study human nature and the fashions. This can be done while ostensibly viewing the inanimate ex hibits. To-morrow night the rock-drilling contest will be resumed—ln other words, the second heat will take place. It proved a very great attraction the other night, and there are thousands of per sons anxious to see the sturdy miners at their work. A five-ton granite bowlder will be moved to the center of the main hall to-morrow, and the contest in the evening will take place where it can be viewed from all parts of the gallery. The butter-making or milk test will take place in the Pavilion this evening. This is also something that will inter est a great many persons, as there has always been a strong rivalry between breeders of different strains of cattle as to their milk and butter-producing qualities. THE MUSIC. One of the strongest attractions of the musical programme at the Pavilion each evening by Cassasa's splendid band is the corps of solo instrumenta tions. Chief among these it is conceded is Mr. Tobin, the solo trombonist, and his charming wife, who every evening appears with him in trombone duos. LOTTA N A VARA TOBIN. This petite ana graceful trombonist is the only woman on the coast who plays the instrument in concert, and we believe Is the only female trombonist in the whole country. At any rate, there is not an instrumentalist of her sex who Is more popular with the public. This is due to her pleasing personality and the charm of her manner. She is literally without affectation. She stands before the audience as simplicity and ease personified. There are em ,X How did it happen \ \ ■ ■ that the old-fashioned, laborious way of \\a washing was ever given to woman as y her particular work? It's an imposition her. She ought to have had only the easiest things to do—and men, strong, healthy men, ought to have taken up this washing business. Now, here is a suggestion.

She plays with an earnestness of purpose and nicety of judgment com porting with her ease and unaffeeted ness. She has never bidden by prac ticed smile or studied pose or trick of eye or feature to win plaudits, nor yet does she undervalue manifest commen dation. An audience is very quick to discover these qualities in an artist and ac knowledge them in the slncerest man ner, and hence it is that Mrs. Tobin is popular in concert. We know of greater artists who might profit by her example. The programme announced for to night's concert is as follows: L March, "Aux Flambeaux" Lansey. 2. Overture to the opera "His Majesty" H. J. Stewart. 3. Grand aria, "Lost Chord" . -. Sir A. Sullivan. (E. Kellar.) 4. Selection, "Tosti's Songs" Kappey 5. (a) "Swedish Wedding March" Saerderman. (b) "Morce'au Characteristique" Pry or. 6.

March, "Blending of American Mel odies" Brooke. The Art Gallery. Thepastel exhibition that Superintend ent Stanton has collected for the Art Gallery this year is probably the best ever made for the fair, taken as a whole. We may have had individual pieces of higher merit; indeed, we are sure of it, but we have had no large collection of such even excellence. These exhibits run from No. 445 to 470, both inclusive, and are by Niles, Ar mer, Kunath, Hutchinson, Vivian, Can dlin and Fenton. ADe la Tour pastel is of the date 1748, and is a portrait in the best style of that celebrated painter of the court of Louis XVI., whose art work was the praise and delight of the connoisseurs of that day. This old piece is full of interest as illustrative of the style of the time and the method of that master. Another feature of the gallery this year Is the collection of sketches by artists Joullin. Stanton, Judson, Maher, Martinez. Bloomer, Kobayashi. Robin son Pages, Armer and Menton. These sketches Mr. Stanton has especially in dicated by a catalogue note calling at tention to them as an innovation in art exhibitions, and as Illustrating the dif ficulties met with in depicting the vary ing moods of nature. One of the best pieces of portraiture in the gallery Is 198 by Mary Hinkson of Sacramento. It is a study in oil of the head and face (profile) of Miss Rose Sheehan. It is a striking portrait be cause of its fidelity and the complete ness of its finish. It is admirable in col oring and correct In treatment. There is no more difficult pose to study than that given the subject in this instance. That the artist has so well succeeded in portraying the features so as to secure instant recognition while giving so slight a view of the face of the subject stands greatly to her credit. Miss Shee han will scarcely secure a better por trait—not one which will be more quick ly recognized, or that better preserves her expression. No. 30, a study of grapes by Mrs. Bruenn, has good Qualities. The draw ing is to be commended and the hand ling is creditable; the one thing that Is lacking in treatment, and after all it is the chief thing, is the translucent effect so essential in a fruit piece of that or der. Mrs. Bruenn is to be encouraged, for she has a grip on broader possibili ties. An excellent fruit piece is by Nellie S. Goodloe (33), Sacramento—peaches. It is superior in many respects, and is an ambitious and meritorious woik in still life and attracts deserved attention. Mrs. Richardson's 36, Study of Back, Is a piece that is worth examination. We esteem It an example notably strong. Eva Wlthrow's "Portrait of My Mother," 41, Is a canvas that arrests attention and commands artistic ap preciation. There is nothing weak about it. One can feel the love that inspired the work and is manifest In the evi dences of patient care under the control of the practiced skill of an accomplished artist, whose fidelity and ease we have so often had occasion to commend in lav- years. We call attention especially to 84, Thomas Hill's Mount Ranier. We rate It as one of the best of the lesser can vases Hill has created to remain as monuments to the art of California's foremost landscape painter. In flower work we have had nothing better than Alice Chittenden's 92. It is its own suf ficient commentary. Rose pieces we have had in all styles and manners by the hundred, but nothing that comes closer to reality. They pardon the comment of a little miss yesterday who exclaimed, as she clung to the skirts of her mother, "Mamma, can't you almost smell them?" A portrait of the late Bishop Manogue by Sister Bethanla is a very superior example of portraiture. It is perhaps a little over-colored, but it is a striking likeness and a thorough ly good canvas. Some mirth is excited by Mr. Stan ton's clever conceit in still life, 70, "Champagne Corks," which bears the name of President Chase. It is a most artful work, but people stand and ask, Without looking at the catalogue, "Did President Chase ;iull the corks, or was Stanton the puller? Who paid for the wine? What was the blowout about, and was Stanton in it, and when did it take place, and were these the remains of a 'glorious time'? What did Chase want with those corks, and what Is re lated to them that he should treasure them? What was the brand of wine, and who footed the bill?" Of course, the catalogue discloses that President Chase is the owner of this neat bit of still life, and he probably purchased it because of its artistic merit. Still there may have been some recollections be tween Stanton and Chase relating to those corks that give an added value to the little panel in the estimation of each. An especially good canvas, one of the best we have had from that artist, is 147, Petaluma Marshes, by A. W. Best. The atmosphere of the time, the char acteristics of the low flat scene, the pe culiar sky so frequently observed In that section, the warmth of the humid air—all these are well preserved in this work. A piece that wins praise from all who examines it is Yelland's 122, "Evening In -the Hay Field." It is one of the softest and most feeling landscapes we have ever had from Yelland's busy brush. The smell of new-mown hay is in the piece and pervades the locality of the picture and quickens the memory of the soft evenings in haying time. As a landscape, it is admirablein perspective, strong in its drawing, rich in its sky and cloud effects, and is altogether a notable piece. LAUREL REDEEMS HERSELF. After Losing Three Heats the Mare Braced Up. t A High-Class Programme Up for This Afternoon at the Track. The first race yesterday did not arouse any enthusiasm among the very large number of people at the Fark, and up to the second heat of the 2:24 trot it looked as if the afternoon would pass without a contest. Then it was, how ever, that the fun began, and it did not end until 0 o'clock and the last heat had, been trotted. Laurel was so hot a favorite that the chalk artists had to wipe her name off the boards and put up figures on the others in-order to get any money into their coffers. In the auction pools be fore the race the speedy mare sold for $2<> against $4 for all the others thrown in. She won the* first heat so easily that nobody dreamed it would be other wise than one-two-three, but in the sec ond she got to acting so badly that she came near being shut out. Laurel is a very bad breaker. In the language of the track, she "goes all to pieces" when she breaks. When she repeated her performance in the third heat her friends deserted her like a band of stampeded sheep and began to hedge. Some selected Twi light, the mare that took the second and third heats, while others banked on Alias and Harry Winchester, Addison being in demand for second place. In the fourth heat Twilight came in about three lengths ahead of Niece — Laurel having danced herself to the rear —and hundreds yelled with delight, some shouting congratulations to Den nis Gammon the owner and driver of Twilight, on his victory. But there were others—the judges did not, with their customary alacrity, an nounce the w inner of the race. Then the fact was recalled that Twilight had skipped over the score, and it was as certained that the judges were in doubt as to whether Twilight was entitled to the race or deserved to be set back. After a -v while Starter McNair's Ne braska voice was heard reading the rules to the multitude, at the conclusion of which he announced that the judges had awarded the heat to Niece and set Twilight back last. This meant that there must be one or more heats, and all the horses but Laurel, Twilight and Niece were out of it. That settled Gannon's "hash," for Laurel steadied down and won the next two heats. It was a great betting race after the first heat, and the big crowd staid to see the last of it. The last race, for 2:22 pacers, was won by Betty Gentry in three straight heats, though Nellie 8., which was last ! in each, was the favorite before the race. All in all. it was quite an interesting afternoon for all that tike the excite ment of racing. The weather was simply perfect.. Cassasa's musicians were at their best, there was a !ar at t> ndance of fair women, and the track was fast. The stringency in the money market was somewhat apparent, still a pretty st' ndy Stream of coin jingled into the pool 00X08. TROTTIN*!—2:25 CLASS. The first race for 2:2." three-year-old trotterfl had but two starters. Palo Al to's Hunyadi and J. B. Iverson's Prince Sift. The latter was the favorite at first, but before the race Gift had the call. First heat —This was an easy victory for Gift. He led eight lengths at the quarter, three at the half, and the same at the outcome in 2:24. At the three quarters *llunyadi had got on nearly even terms when he skipped and fell back. Seeqnd heat—Gift led three lengths all the way from the quarter to the out come, in 2:2<i. In the third heat Gift crossed the score in a dog trot a dozen lengths in front in 2:25%. TROTTING—2:24 CLASS. For the 2:24 trot the starters were Harry Winchester, Laurel. Twillght.Ad dlson, Niece and Alias. In the heat betting Laurel was a strong favorite, and Addison was greatly in favor for the place. With Laurel out he sold at even money, 3V2 to 1 on Winchester, 5 I to 1 Twilight, 6 to 1 Niece and 3 to 1 > Alias. In the auction pools on the race ; Laurel sold for $20 against $4 for the field. First heat—lt was mere play for Lau rel to win the heat in 2:20. Addison broke soon after leaving the score and was eight lengths behind Laurel, but regained several of them. Twilight was third, Alias fourth, Winchester fifth and Niece last. Dick Havey was put up behind Alias In the next heat. Laurel was not in cluded in the betting, which made Ad- , dison the choice over the others. Second heat—This was a windfall for ! the outsiders. Laurel broke soon after leaving the score and was 100 yards be- j hind at the quarter, where Addison led Twilight by three lengths. Before the j three-quarters was reached Laurel had closed with the bunch, but the pace was I so hot she left her feet and fell back. | Again at the seven-eighths she was go- j ing for the lead when up she went and Keating pulled her up. Addison and Twilight were even at the draw-gate, but near the score the former was forced off his feet and Twilight won in 2:19, Winchester third. Niece fourth, Alias fifth and Laurel last. Third heat—Again the favorite was downed. Laurel broke on the first turn and fell to the rear. She closed up the gap at the head of the stretch and j was coming ahead at the seven-eighths i when she went up and finished third. Twilight led all the way until overtaken by Laurel, but the latter's last break left her again in tho lead and she won out in 2:10. Addison held second place up to the far turn, where his harness broke and Winchester passed him and ! finished second, Alias fourth, Niece fifth and Addison last. After the race it was found thatAddi- ; SOU was not in condition to do justice to i himself. Fourth heat—Twilight led all the way and came first across the score by three lengths, but galloped the last few Jumps and was set back last. Laurel, the prime favorite, went through her UFual song and dance performance and finished fifth. The heat was given to Niece, Alias second, Winchester third, Addison fourth, Laurel fifth and Twi light sixth. Time—2:2o%. There was widespread dissatisfaction with the decision, most of those who had not money on Laurel complaining bitterly. Fifth heat—All except Laurel, Niece and went to the stable. Laurel broke again on leaving the score, but soon regained her stride and won in Niece second and Twilight third. Sixth heat—Laurel led at the quarter, Niece second and Twilight last. At tha half Laurel had a dozen lengths the best of it, Twilight four behind Niece. This time she did not break and won easily in 2:20, Niece second. PACING—2:22 CLASS. The last race was for 2:22 pacers, every heat a race. The starters were Ed Lafferty, Nellie 8., Betty Gentry and Palatine. The favorite was Nellie B. First heat—Palatine did not get away at all. She stood prancing by the pad dock when the word was given. Betty Gentry led all the way, though Lafferty might have won had he not left his feet near the outcome. As it was Betty won by a half dozen lengths in 2:IG, Laffer ty second and the favorite a poor third. (Continued on Fifth Page.)
