GREAT CROWD 1 AT THE FAIR Thursday's Attendance Is Up to the Standard. Fair May Not be Continued on Saturday In teresting Features. With Indications Thursday morning pointing toward better weather there was a more hopeful feeling among the management of the fair, and as large crowds began coming In early, every thing looked encouraging Uy noon ificrc was a crowd of 10,000 on the grounds and others coming continually. On Wednesday there were 1,500 paid admissions, nnd the number of school children reached 4,000. Secretary Hale stated Thursday that the announcement that the fair would be continued " through to Saturday evening was unofficial. -"This will not be done unless ft is absolutely neces-sary,-" he added. "If we can cpull off the races, the fair will 'end Friday evening." All the livestock and nearly every thing else on exhibition were judged Thursday. . Everything is In readiness for the starting of tie races at 2 o'clock, and the track is In fairly good condition. "But who the melodies of morn can telir It wao not William Shakespeare who asked this poetic question. Far from It, for tradition has it that William was a special policeman on night duty at the fair nt Stratford-on-Avon in the county of Warwick and to him the noise of the fowls In the poultry de partment, when the suw' was climbing over the eastern mountain -tops, was as the shouting of a crowd of bedlam ites." And as the roosters crowed and the hens cackled and the geesesquawk ed in the time of William Shakesrcare, so do they now at the county fair and Chief Harry Welch stated to a Dem ocrat reporter Thursday that the noise made by the poultry department In the early morning drowned out the roar of the trains up on the hill. The noisiest crowd in the whole bunch are those in the tent. Just to the east of the poultry building. Apparently theso fowls are envious of their more fortu nate, brethren, who snooze under a wooden covering. Nevertheless they are, a great set of fowls and number ijoo. It Is perhaps the largest exhibi tion of chickens, ducks and geese that has ever been seen at the fair. The rarest specimens, are the pair of blue (induluslans. This breed of chickens Is almost extinct and there is only one pair at the fair. "What Is the. outlook for the baby show this afternoon, Mr. Brews ter," was a question shot at the genial treasurer Thursday morning. Mr. Brewster, It will be remembered, has BOLAN DISMISSED Officer Michael Bolan, Jr., has been dismissed from the pollen force. His hearing was before the Board of Qlty Commissioners Wednesday afternoon. Commissioner Houser stated Thurs day that Mr. Bolan had been dismiss ed for conduct unbecoming an officer while on duty. Ho declined to discuss the charges In detail. charge of the baby show. "Well, you see that depends a little on the weather this afternoon. If the sun shines we will have the finest lot of babies in the county. Here you will see the biggest, fattest and pret tiest, babies and lest I forget also the loveliest babies to be found In the whole country.' At (hl.s point Secretary Hale carao up and the two officials entered into a council of war as to the best means for keeping the babies amused. Tho result of the conference could not be learned. "I read In the 'Chicago American' a few days ago of a man In Washington who had the largest apple in tie world. It weighed 20 ounces. If the article Is true, I can beat him a few." The speaker was Mr. O. G. Reesch, of Wadsworth. He proved his statements by weighing two large apples. One tipped the beam at 25 ounces, the other at 20 ounces. These break all local records and are probably a world rec ord. Mr. Reesch also hag some pump kins. Like the rerit of the owners ot pumpkins, he was late in arriving Tues day but this is explained by the. fact that the pumpkins ara so heavy that it was necessary to let the horses rest every half mile or so. The- fruit exhi bition is a great one. Mr. E. M. Wood ard, of Kirtland, bag on exhibition 5o varieties of grapes. The fruit exhibi tion is one of the features of the fair. It is a conservative estimate that" 5,000 rubber balls with rubber bands attached to them were sold at the" fair Wednesday. The youngsters had great sport with them and there was scarce ly a youth ,who was not the owner oJ one. ffi i--:Us.-T. 4 Menches Bros, seem to have a mo nopoly on the candy, peanut and pop corn business. They have stands an over the grounds, and Taavo 60 people employed, both day and night. Mr. Frank Sawyer, of Toledo, an uncle-of Attorney W. T. Sawyer, of this city, is among the visitors at the fair. Despite the fact that he is SO years of age, he is erect and active. It was he who shot the last deer seen in Copley swamp, and he says that he is today as good a shot with the rifle as ever he was. VICIOUS Crime Charged Against Joseph Coy.
