MOWER COUNTY FAIR. Our county agricultural fair cjpsed TfttfrSday aftefnobh.^^ the morning and threatening weather greatly decreased the attendance on the last day but the attendance for the three days exceeded all previous records. The total paid attendance was 6,017 an increase of 870 over the best previous year. Secretary Davison informs us that all premiums will be paid in full. As we expect to publish the list of premiums in full, detailed notice of ex hibits will be omitted here. Visitors to the fair were pleased to see the per manent improvements which have been put in. Instead of spending $200 a year in erecting temporary stock sheds, the directors this year have started to build permanent buildings and have expended nearly $700 this season in the stock sheds, fixing the ampitheatre and moving the fence at the entrance. The exhibits in all departments were excellent and the competition for prem iums was taken in some departments. The swine exhibit excelled anything shown here before. We notice that Charles L. Rice took sweepstakes on his Chester Whites. F. R. Scripture of the Saint's Rest creamery carried off ihe blue ribbons for creamery butter. John M. Christgau & Son of Sutton took sweepstakes on Duroc Jerseys and a long list of premiums. We were interested in the boys' con test for the care of stock. Claude Christgau, 11 years old, of Sutton took the premium for the best pigs raised by a boy. He put up two pigs born Apr. 15' in a small pen, 8x8 feet, and had the occlusive care of them. At ten weeks old when weaned they weighed 82 pounds and at the fair weighed 202 pounds. He fed them 142 pounds of corn on cob, 138 pounds of shorts and 100 pounds of oats, all valued at $2.99, also milk valued at 42 cents, 25 cents worth of stock food and three cents worth of oil meal, a total cost of $3.69. Senator Knute Nelson addressed an immense audience Wednesday after noon. He spoke veryjfpractically of the territorial and commercial growth of the UnitedJStates, the splendid re sources of Minnesota and the necessity of government regulation of the large corporations. He urged the jboys and girls in the rural districts to stick to the farm instead of being tempted to the overcrowded cities. The senator was greatly pleased in looking over the various departments at the fair. The Ladi'es of the Fair,worked hard at their dining tent and other booths and made] about $200 for their new building to be erected next year.' The street fair closed Thursday night. Main street never looked so beautiful in its electric decorations and the crowds were large every evening to enjoy the recreation. Confetti and other sports were abundant. Two plate glass windows, one in Cressey's and one in Decker Brothers, were broken during the carnival. JjThe tent shows and the merry-go-round seemed to have liberal patronage. The baseball game Thursday after noon was a hot one between Dexter and Lyle. Score 9 to 7 in favor of Lyle. The horse races were interest ing to large crowds and we imagine were just as interesting between local horses as though the association had sp^nt large sums on expensive outside horses. The attractions were well selected and pleased thejcrowds. Consul James W. Davidson, who is visiting his relatives here, was heartily applauded Wednesday afternoon aft he had made a brief address. He is onn of Mower county's best products. The managers and officers of the fair have great reason to feel 'gratified at the sucess of this fair in^spite of one rainy day. They have] tried a itTer^nt method of advertising for the p^t two yt-ars with &xcellent|results. vlore money than ever has been put in to premiums for strictly our county piodu^ts and much less into outside horse racing. We believe that the large attendance justifies them in continuing al'ing the same general methods of management. ADVANCE FUR SALE In order to encourage early buying in this de partment we. have de cided to make special prices on our entire line of furs Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Sept. 21, 22, 23. We are showing ohjB of the most complete lines ever shown in Austin. FISCHBRQS: •i» Are you Engaged? Engaged people should remember that, after marriage, many quarrels cian be avoided, by keeping their digestions in good condition with Electric Bitters. S A. Brown,of Bennettville, S. C., says: "POP years my wife suffered intensely from dyspepsia, complicateid with a torpid liver, until she lost her strength and vigour, and became a mere wreck of her former self. Then she tried Electric Bitters* which helped her at once, and finally made her entirely well She is now strong and healthly." K. O.

MilkCosUi nd Angoras Milk goats are a prominent feature of the live stock industry of Europe, especially In Switzerland, Italy, Ger many, Austria, France, Norway and Spain. They are peculiarly adapted to the needs of the poorer classes of those countries, and to a large extent it is this adaptability that recommend:? them for many localities in the United Btates. This is because milk, which is food and drink to all mankind, is fur- AMEK1CAN MILK GOAT MATITA. nislied by the goat in cheap form, be cause for most purposes its quality is superior to cow's milk, and also be cause the yield of milk, when the size of the animal and amount of feed are concerned, is much greater than that of a cow. "The present situation regarding a milk goat industry in the United States," says George F. Thompson, edi tor of the bureau of animal industry, "is confined largely to an awakening interest, although there are now some communities of foreigners where a con siderable number of goats are kept for milk, the kids being fitted for slaugh ter. "The first question that most people ask concerning this industry is, 'How much milk will a goat give?' A doe that yields less than a quart a day is not considered a good milker. If she yields two quarts a day she may be regarded as profitable, provided lacta tion may be maintained six or seven months. Pegler, the writer, says that a doe yielding three pints a day with her first kid need not be set aside as an indifferent animal, as she will in all probability give twice that quantity on subsequent occasions. The German literature is full of instances of goats that yield four and five quarts per day, and it appears that the average in Germany ancl Switzerland must be not far from three quarts. Indeed, it is stated by German writers that many goats yield ten times their body weight of milk annually and exceptional ani mals as much as eighteen times their weight." The American milk goat Matita, whose picture is reproduced from the American Sheep Breeder, is owned by Mrs. Edward Iloby of Chicago. Mrs. Roby has a herd of 100 milk goats. Qualities of tlie Angora. Angora goats produce mohair of which the finest aud most durable fab rics are made, consisting of fine plushes used in upholstering palace cars and fine furniture also dress goods, fine underwear, hats and many other articles of which constant use is made. Many large manufactories are now being erected to produce these articles from mohair. Angora venison is most delicious meat and can now be found on the bill of fare of the best hotels. Angora goats are farm cleaners and farm re claimers. They clean the farm of all underbrush and weeds, thereby doubling and trebling the value of lands on which they exist.—Farm Progress. PARASITES MAKE PEARLS. A Tapevorqi the Nucleus of the Oys ter's Precious Product. Familiar as may be the £act that pearls are formed around intrusive for eign bodies within the shell of the oys ter, the notion that such iiftrusive bodies are apt to be inorganic parti cles, such as grains of sand, must, as serts the Quarterly Review, be given up. Recent investigation has shown that the nucleus which must be present if a pearl is to be formed is the larva of some "highly organized parasite"' having a complicated and as yet Inac curately known life history. The para site would seem to form a pit in the outer surface of the mantle or fleshy flap that lines the shell, of the oyster, and this mantle, in order to protject Itself, secretes a pearly coat around the-parasite. Microscopic examination of thin sec tions made, through decalcified pearls showed that*/ they are almost in ail cases deposited aqrnnd a minute larva, which seems almost certain fvKfcthe larva of the These larvae way into the they set up lndi the pearl. or majsfe their the irritation the formation of 2 Days on every box. 23c mam 0 THE itAY'S LATEST. Human Hear* Successfully Phote Between Bea^a. Some astonishing developments in ray photographing have resulted from long and patient efforts, some details of which the experimenters explain in detail. Professor Rieder and Dr. Joseph Rosenthal of Munich have been col laborating in the work and declare they have succeeded in obtaining in iess than, a second of time ray pho tographs of the human chest, the pa tient ceasing to breathe meanwhile. Having proceeded thus far, they sought to take pictures of the human heart between its beats, as it was found that the beating of that organ impaired the exactness of the photographs. Having first of all accurately gauged the time elapsing by a process they art* prepared to describe at length, by the use of the most sensitive films procurable and the strongest possible rays, good photographs were secured in one-tenth of a second. The outlines of the heart and a large portion of the lungs were photograph ed with much greater success and clearness than had been hitherto found possible. AN ANIMAL INFIRMARY. Where Diseases of Beasts Are Stud ied l»y Specialists. In a little low building at the Phila delphia Zoological park investigations are now being made of great impor tance to the world. For a long time it has been suspccted that the germs of contagious diseases are communi cated to human beings by domestic pets, cats, dogs, rabbits, birds, mon keys or mice. But no scientist has been able to say, "I know that germs are communicated ia this way." It will be the work of the corps of doc tors now engaged in investigating ani mal diseases at the new infirmary of the Philadelphia Zoological park to set tle this important point. A secondary object to be attained by the experiments is to determine the best means to cure the ills of the ani mal world. This is the phase of the work that will chiefly interest veteri narians all over the world, while the mm SHOWING HIS TONGUE TO THE DOCTOR. first naiuod feature of the experiment will chiefly concern those intruste! with the alleviation of the woes of the human race. In the interests of these important questions the authorities of the zoolog leal park and +1ICJ veterinary surgeons and medical men engaged with them in conducting the experiments have not hesitated io icrifiee valuable ani mals. The veterinary department of the University of Pennsylvania has purchased a inir -r of monkeys. Those monkeys have been inoculated with the tuberculosa germ and turned loose among a cagefr' of monkeys at the Zoological park. They have been care fully watched, with a view to deter mining whether or not they commu nicate the disease to the healthy mon keys. -and a record is kept of all the conditions of thei'- vitality during the progress of the disease. Novel MI'k Cars. An interesting r.eparture has been made by the at Northern Railroad company of England in conveying mdk. and the idea has been taken up in Ire land to the extent of urging the rail road companies to r.^e s'milar appara tus. The ruilk card are fitted with a special adjustable ventilating appara tus, and the osclllption which has on a number of occa :r.:3 nearly cli. rned milk into butter during a journey has almost disappeared. Even at rapid speed on sharp curves there is scarce ly any oscillation. The vans are forty five feet long and run on two four wheeled bogies. A Safety Elevator. A New York bank has a safety ele vator operated by electricity and auto matically. Thus the wages and im pudence of a boy are saved. While the door remains open heaven and earth could not move the car up or down the fraction of an inch. But when you step inside and close the door the lock ing mechanism is released. By touch ing a push button you ascend or de scend at will. This elevator would make a fine plaything for a boy of ten. And he could never hurt himself.— New York Press. Cure For Bed Noses. Professor Lassar, the German skin specialist, has found a method by which red noses can be made to re sume their normal color. He uses an instrument shaped like a toothbrush, with platinum wires instead of bris tles. These wires are: connected with electrical machine. The treatment Consists in hammering the lurid nose With the brush until it bleeds, when the treatment is stopped, for a day. After that two poundings a week for a few months suffice-to eliminate the excess ive redness. "Edith, there is one thing "that I lik« about you." "Really. What's that?"
