The twentieth annual West Virginia
Exposition and State Fair arrived upon
the scene on schedule time bright and
early Monday morning, and the opening
day attendance was considerably
ahead of expectations, footing up about
3,000. Monday is always the llnal
day of preparation, it 1 Invariably
being the case that some exhibitors fall
to have their entries on the grounds
and properly classified before the actual
opening of the big show. But '.his very
thing of eleventh hour unprppnredneHS
Is an attractive feature for many cf
the first day crowd, and Monday was
no exception to the rule. Especially do
the town people find enjoyment in
watching the Incoming horses, sheep,
cattle and hogs. Jt Is a spectacle of
novelty for them, one that Is witnessed
but once a year, and, like Christmas, Is
always welcomed with vivacity and
Secretary Hook, President Reymann,
Director Paul O. Reymann, Director
Charley Schmidt and the superintendents
of the several departments
of the big fair were
the busiest of Individuals Monday.
Especially was Secretary Hook
In demand?If he could have distributed
himself all over the grounds at one and
the same time, there would proba'ily
have been a telephone call from town
for his pfir. Mr. Hook Is alwavs Inde
fatlgable, untiring nnd energetic, and
this year with the added care of the
night session* It Is an unsolved problem
when he finds the needed hours of
relaxation and repose. Like the Chinese
puzzle, It Is likely to remain unsolved.
The scene on the grounds during the
afternoon was one that had Its novel
features, when compared with former
fairs. Running through the grounds
were wires with their burden of Innumerable
electric lamps, which were
used for the first time last night in illuminating
the grounds for the night
sessions. Out In the track enclosure
were four large frame stands, and on
each was mounted a 16,000 candle power
arc-lamp?these to Illuminate the halfmile
track for the night session running
races and hippodrome races. In the
evening these search-lights were given
their flr?t real tent, and they Illuminated
the track in splendid shape and
moke It assured that the racing at
night will be a line feature of the fnir.
Under the grand stand the German
Village has been Inducted?with Its
commodious stage, excellent complement
of foot-lights and good Illumination
generally. There are many tnbles
scattered, throughout the commodious
space in front of the stage, with
benches and chairs, and here the audience
has refreshments served and
witnesses the excellent performance
given by the vaudeville company engaged
by the fnir association. The first
performance last night was witnessed
by a large crowd, and the real merit of
the entertainment was for the first
time realized.
On the Midway there are more and
better shows than at any former fair.
All were In full blast lost night, and
without exception they were well patronized
by the public. The-usual array

ter of course there was the same old

fairs, and are most attractively placed.

unusual attractiveness. The amateur j

displayed in the afternoon by Supervisor
Fred. F. Farls, and although not as

some tine examples of the photographic
art. The exhibit of Glflln, the photo

it contains some or tne portraits, that
were given the highest honors at the
recent national convention of the professional
photographers. In the north
wing Is located the educational exhibit,
with Superintendent of Schools W. II.
Anderson In charge; every district
school In the city Is well represented,
and the rivalry Is Intense, as It always
is In this department. The Jellies'and
cakes display, In charge of Mrs. George
W. Lutz. Is a Joy forever for the average
housewife who visits the fair, and
this year the department Is a winner,
and worth spending half an hour with.
Among the other exhibitors are the H.
F. Behrens Company, groceries; Meyer
fc Hadcllffe. bottled drinks; Reymnnn
Brewing Company, beers: W.L. Tanney,
signs; F. W. Baumer Company,
pianos and musical instruments:
Wheeling Business College and Elliott
Business College, educational; Wheeling
Tent & Awning Company, and others.
All In all, the main building is a
winner from wing to wing.
The horticultural department, under
the direction of Councilman Charley
Schmidt, is by long odds the llnest ever
seen on these grounds. Such peaches
were never grown before: such pears
and grapes and apples have seldom
been Been In a horticultural show?and
so it goes through the entire catalogue
of fruits and vegetables.
The dog show Is big and noisy. It Is
located in machinery hall, and the
hundred or more entrants are not at
all slow In letting people know that
they have made their appearance In
the llrst bench show given under the
nusplces of the fair association.
Jefferson Itlco has charge of an unusually
line poultry exhibit.
In cattle, sheep and hogs this fair
stands pre-eminent, and Superintendents
Jacob and Terrlll are more than
pleased with the volume and quality of
the entries that they have received and

There were no races last night, hut i

are numerous arc lights, and under ,

Is located, the effect of the lights Is a
novelty that serves to attract the admiration
of all who visit that popular
feature of the..big show.
