The fire was close to the large new cow stable and for a time it looked as though it would fall prey to the flames. The loss to the Association this year is estimated t $40,000. Frederick Fair Opens. Exhibits Claim Wide Attention And Races And (Jrand Stand Attractions Please. (From the Frederick News.) With bright, clear skies and the most ideal temperature that could be desired, the fifty-fourth annual Fair of the Fred erick County Agricultural Society opened Tuesday morning at 10 o’clock. Prompt ly at that hour Chief Marshal John T. Best and his aids, accompanied by the Yellow Springs Band, started the parade from in front of the New City Hotel. The line of march was to Market street, up Market and down East Church street to Carter street and out Patrick street to the Fair Grounds. Under ideal con ditions the gates were swung op n and the “cattle show” began. The bright and sunny skies, whi- h greeted the eye brought out people by the thousands and early there was a crowd on the streets. There was one steady stream of persons to the grounds and people went out in every imaginable way. Many took the cars. Others walked or went in autos, while the lie of teams poured into Frederick from 11 directions. While the crowd early in ho morning was small, as is always the iate on the opening day, yet following the formal op ning of the Fair the number began to increase until shortly after noon it was reported that probably the largest crowd which ever attended the Fair on the opening day was present. On account of the Hagerstown Fair run ning over to Saturday many concession people did not reach Frederick until late and all day Monday they were busy ar ranging their attractions. Much of this work could not be finished until about noon Tuesday so that all of the midway attractions were not running at their usual clip until later in the day. The usual line of Fair barkers, of which the throng never tires, is on hand spell-bind ing the people with the “best and only show of its kind ever seen in America.” The judging of the thousands of entries at the Fair started and the judges have before them a gigantic tusk. There are more than three thousand entries in the household department alone and this is said to exceed the entries of any previous year. Every department of exhibits at the Fair is crowded, and in some places there is an overflow, such as in the exhi bit of flowers, where it has been neces sary to place some of them in the same room where the fancy work is on display. There are hundreds of articles in the needlework department, which must be judged, and (here seems to be no end of the fancy articles. Out in the grounds in the oval beyond the grandstand horses were being judged as was also the case along the race track. Swine were taken from their pens and their fine points noted, The sheep and cattle were brought out of the stables and judged, while the largest number of Shetland ponies in the history of the Fair consumed considerable lime of the officials. The annual pilgrimage of the Fred erick County Colony in Baltimore, led by Col. George W. F. Vernon, will be made to the home county Thursday. A special train over the Baltimore and Ohio for the colonists and their friends will leave Camden Station at 7.30 o’clock in the morning, and returning leave Frederick at 5.45 o’clock in the evening. Personal. On Saturday afternoon last the ladies of the Literary Club of this place were entertained at the home of Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Isanogle near Catoetin. Miss Carry Slick of Reading, Ba., is visiting her mother Mrs. Elizabeth Slick. A very delightful time was spent at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Fraley last Sunday. The occasion was in honor of Mr. Fraley’s birthday. Mrs. Anna Hatcher, who has been vis iting in Virginia and W. Virginia cities for some weeks, returned to her home in this place last Sunday morning. Miss Rose Montague of Richmond, Va., is spending some time with Mr. and Mrs. Rob’t A. Tyson. Mr. Joseph Lidia has been ill the past week due to a severe cold. A large number of young folks from the valley east of Thurmont drove to the mountain in quest of chestnuts last Sun day afternoon.

Exchange Also Leaves Whole sale Poultry Values To Dealers. The wholesale prices of eggs and poul try are no longer officially fixed by the Baltimore Fruit and Produce Exchange and the Egg Exchange, which have been operated jointly for many years for that purpose. The practice was discontinued some weeks ago and the prices, so far as Baltimore is concerned, are now left to the individual dealers. The membership in the exchanges was made up of the commission merchants who daily receive produce from the coun try for sale in this market. Each day a committee formally met at the exchange rooms and made offerings and purchased eggs and poultry on the same principle that members of the Chamber of Com merce deal in grain. The committee would then fix a settling price, as was explained by W. H. Hector, a leading member, and this price was accepted by all as the wholesale price for that d ly. Some weeks ago, said Mr. Rector, the Government sent an expert to the ex change to examine its methods. This was about the time of the investigation as to the reasons for the high cost of liv ing. The Government official spent sev eral hours going over the practices of the exchange, which were explained to him in detail. It is said he made the statement that he could find nothing un lawful in the practice. However, continued Mr. Rector, some members thought it best to discontinue establishing the price, as it might lead to their being called before the District Attorney to explain, and many of the commission men said they were too busy to leave their business for this purpose to take the risk. The majority decided to cease the practice. Mr. Rector went so far as to say the exchanges hid been disbanded. Others, however, denied this and said that only the fixing of prices had been suspended for the time being. The prices for these products are now established on the daily supply which reaches the market and the demand which develops among the buyers. Quo tations from New York and other large j receiving centers are also relied on as a 1 guide in getting a fair local quotation.

Will Blace Memorial Tablets On Pews. ‘‘So impressed was J. W. Johnson, of Rochester, N. Y., with the services in the Presbyterian church at the time of the Fiftieth Anniversary, when the seat occupied by President Lincoln, almost fifty years before, was draped with an American Flag, that he offered after the service to place a memorial tablet on the pew,provided the congregation would per mit it. His offer was accepted. “The tablet has not been placed as yet, but now Mr. Johnson desires llso to place a plate on the pew occupied by John Burns at that service on November 19. 1863, the day of the dedication of the National Cemetery, and according to his plans, dedicate both of these memorials on the 19th of November, 1914, the 51st anni versary of the service. Full details of the placing of these tablets are not yet available, but they will be mounted be fore the above date and at the service Mr. Johnson will be present and deliver his lecture on the Battle of Gettysburg, illustrating it with his fine collection of slides, one of the best in existence.”— Gettysburg Star.

It is said that the first sawmill in the United States was at Jamestown, j from whieh sawed hoards were ex ported in June, 1007. A water-! power sawmill was in use in 1025 1 near the present site of Richmond. California yew which grows on the national forests of that state is find ing some use in present-day archery practice. Its qualities closely resem ble those of the old-world yew which made the English long-how famous in mediaeval times. The Supreme Court of Pennsylva nia has decided that the amount of damage collectible on growing tim ber set on fire through negligence is not only the value of the wood de stroyed, hut also the injury to the property as a whole through the de struction of tin; young growth. Recent experiments indicate that round timbers of all the pines, of Engelmann spruce, Douglas fir, tam arack, and western larch, can he readily treated with preservatives, hut that the firs, hemlocks, redwood, and Sitka spruce, in the round, do not take treatment easily. This in formation should he of value to per son's who contemplate preservative treatment of round posts, poles, or mine props.
