Provided For the Weary. Best of Everything In All the Departments. Program For Tonight the Fair." Notes of The only way to have a proper con ception of the symmetry and well rounded, artistic excellence of the street fair is to visit the grounds and get a mental picture such as pen can not describe or artist paint. The panorama in all its grandeur and beauty is ready for the most careful and critical inspection. Bright and delightful wt-ather is the Xff ft it & 1 W 0 Hi & Program For Tonight. 7:30 p.m. All theaters on the Mid way open. 8:00 p.m. Parade of the exhibition Mreet by Oriental people, and fire works display. 8:30 p.m. Streets of India open.

M :!aM3Ms!M39: order of the day. The installation of exhibits is complete. Unsightly and unopened boxes do not mar the view. Every booth is splendidly arrayed, and contains costly exhibits. Resting Places. Lavish provision has been made for the accommodation of visitors, especially in the distribution of set tees throughout the grounds. The s e resting places for tired sight-seers will accommodate hundreds; but the wealth of attractions on .every hand shortens their time for rebt, so that others can take their seats. Merchants' Display. -Aside from the kaleidoscopic grand eur the real merit of the fair is, of c6urse, in the display of Akron mer chants and manufacturers. The great influx of sight-seers is toward the avenues of booths. It is not for a mere cursory view, but for a careful inspection of the latest goods and appliances. The whirl of amusement finds here a conservatism which is delightful. It is the best of every thing in every department. Add to this material beauty the blaze of light from thousands of electric burners, the piercing rays of the search light, and the flaming torch of natural gas it is evening. Elephant Procession. As one is finishing the circuit of the main grounds the shrill cry rings out, "Stop her. Now then for Joppa! Ease her. Any one for Gizeh?" It is the elephant and camel procession carrying its merry load of freight over the grounds. Seeing the ele phant is not enough. You must ride on the elephant. It is one of the features pi the.fair. - Over thearohio, the hbme jaf Oriental splendor, Javanese dexterity? Egyptian,-Nubian and Algerian cunning and back- THE WEATHER: Showers tonight Threatening sheesh, into the Streets of IndiH. This portion of the ground is con- j tinually crowded. Real ufe. Greatest of all. however, is the Midway Plaisauce. As the barker says it is life real life. There is a longing on the part of the gaudy tat terdemalions for "filthy lucre" which accounts for the lusty shouts to come closer. It is backsheesh with a semblance of return. The dancing girls are still thcpopular idols of the crowd while patriotism suns galore in the tent exhibiting the war pic tures. Attendance. - The attendance Wednesday night was immense. Large .crowds are in the city today to attend the fair. Thrilling Exhibition. Nero, the Aiino lion In the wild animal show on the midway, is the only one of his species ever captured and trained. Prof. Stadler, the trainer, gives a most thrilling exhi bition in the cage with Nero and Venus. The two beasts are put through all sorts of tricks, and at the conclusion are made to jump through hoops of Are. Venus is particularly vicious and at all times Prof. Stadler has to be on his guard against her. European Tour. Paul IePointe, the manager of the Japanese theater, is in constaut communication with the home office in New York, arranging the Euro pean tour which begins immediately after the conclusion of the present season. It requires .considerable de tail to direct the gathering of 150 Hi it) ft 0 b ft ,W Japs from a distant land with their baggage, scenery, etc., with which to build a complete Japanese village such as Mr. LePointe proposes to erect at the Paris exposition. Stamp of Approval. The four hundred have placed the stamp of approval upon the midway and Streets of India. The cream of Akron society was out last night in force and from now on the midway will be the popular place to spend the evening during the progress of the fair. GREAT GRIT Showen by an East Akron Shoemaker. Threaded a Needle and Sewed up Wound In His Leg. The grit displayed by Samuel Hodgdon, a shoe maker with a place of business at 1188 East Market st. is remarkable. He was. working at his bench Wednesday when a knife with which he was trimming leather, slipped and cut a deep gash in his leg. He succeeded in stopping the flow of blood aud then, instead of calling a surgeon, he threaded up one of his own needles and sewed up the gap ping wound. It was necessary to take 11 stitches.
