Wed. Sept. n, 10:54 a. m. The president rested comfort ably during the night. Decided benefit bas followed dressing the wound last night. His stomach tolerates the beef juice well and it is taken with great sat isfaction. His condition this morning is excellent. Pulse, 116; temperature 100 2 The physicians consider his recovery almost certain. The reports of the secretary of the treasury show that the circulation of National bank notes has increased to 114,830 during the last year. This is an increase cf about fifty cents per capita. The bankers are contributing to pros perity, now by Increasing the currency Of course they are; incidentally they are contributing to their own prosperity. By and by they may contribute to their own prosperity by contracting the circula tion. This will not contribute to the general prosperity. FAIR NOTES. A machine that attracted a great deal of attention at the fair was one for shucking corn. This is something most people had never before heard of. The machine was run by a threshing machine engine and was about the size of a power corn shelter. The corn they were put' ting through it of course was grown this year and was poor stuff with only a few nubbins, so that it could not give a dem onstration of what it might do. How' ever the corn from the shock, or in bun dles was fed into the machine like wheat into a threshing machine, and the ears came out in one place and the fodder, stalks andjjall, chopped up fine bo that stock would eat nearly everything, came out at another. Probably if there is de mand and sale for this machine a shelter will later be attached to it, so that it will take corn from the shock and shuck and shell it. Perhaps the department in which was the most surprising array of exhibits was the fine arts department. There were many pictures which show that this sec tion of Kansas is not without artists by any means. Most of them are from Hutchinson, too. Some of the best of these were from the brush of Mrs. Dr. Justice. She had five beautiful oil paint ings. There were two landscapes of especial merit There was one pastel moonlight scene representing two rough riders on the trail which presents the most striking effect of all the pictures in the gallery. It was said to be the work of Miss Lawson. Mr. Rudesill had some very fine water color specimens and also some sketches worthy of note. There were also other real works of art from artists whose names were not learned, as the entry tags showed no names. If a criticism is to be offered on the fair or its management, it would be that undue attention is given to the racing department. Considered from a stand point of the benefits to the community, this is the least important department In the whole fair. And yet it is no doubt the one that does most to draw crowds and increase the gate receipts. The fair has to meet expenses and the man agement no doubt figures that by boom ing the races they can get the necessary funds better than in any other way. Nevertheless the usual complaint that is heard concerning the old time fairs that were held, is that they all went to faces and interest In the other depart ments lagged till It was impossible to hold a fair at all, The balloon man was at the fair. The crowds were there and ready to see him ascend Into the distant blue. But he didn't ascend. Wednesday he tried to inflate his balloon knowing that the wind was high. But he wanted to try it anyway. He was getting it pretty well blown up with hot air when It ripped t he whole length of one side. He worked all next day sowing it up and then It was too windy to attempt an ascension, He didn't even attempt to inflate It that day. This was no doubt a disappoint ment to many who came largely to see the balloon ascension. There were many fine specimens of fruit In the horticultural department and It was largely from Reno county. Our local horticulturists seemed to have taken a local pride in these exhibits. And yet some of the finest specimens were from as far west as Lamed, W. I I. Gill, who lives four or five miles north of that pliicc, in tbe hard land, was the exhibitor. Of course they were Irri gated. But it was done with a wind mill. Mention should be made of the vari ous displays of the Hutchinson mer chants. They were very tastful and In ev ery way creditable. But as they were about all represented, and li it would hardly be fair to discuss one without go ing through the whole list, it Is hardly necessary to make further mention. One of the great attractions at the fair was the Kingman county triplets.. They a re the properly of a man by the name of Cook. His wife also seems to have something to do with them, One of the wonders is how she does do for them, for they are strong and healthy children. Some one, either the lair or park man. agement deserves credit for so much pains in providing for the comforts of the crowds of people oh the grounds. Water was plentiful, teats were gener ally provided and there seemed to be nothing lacking In this line. The rest tent put up .and kept on the grounds by the Young People's Local Union was a happy invention. This tent was fitted up with chairs and a couple of cots. Here many a weary mother found rest for herself and child in the shade, Dave Hess, the Page wire fence man was on hand with an exhibition of all his various kinds of wire fences, from those that would hold small chickens to one that is the finest kind of fancy front fence for residences, etc. He had a good exhibit, ' J. Clarence Norton, of the Kansas Farmer was one of the live stock judges at the fair. He is considered an expert, and he certainly is in forming his decis ions. He will act as judge at several of the other fairs on the circuit. Awards of Premiums. Best Stallion, 4-year old or over 1st premium, . H. McFall; 2d, Ed Blair.

Anddu udilltlmi to these, eitnirsloiiJiand "days oft" are more frequent ami popular than formerly, sup the Philadelphia Press. Some one "handy at figures" has cullmulrd that 10,000,000 lu the United Suites will hike 11 vneatiou this summer, and that on nn uvt-rageeuuh one will spend (4-11 dollars. This would make a total of $100,01)0,000 spent fur rent and rvoreutloii. It Isprobuble'that the figures are too mimiII, Leaving out the rich and leUure class, to whom time uiul money I no object, at lt-ust one lu ouch seven Of all the people In this country will enjoy a vacation thin summer, extending from five to 30 days. ThlM would menu a rest for over 12,000,000 people, and If they spend only $12 each, about $130,000,000 will be used in gaining rest and recreation. It Is time und money well spent. No investment made. In tbe whole year brings In larger returns. It isonof the causes which are adding percepti bly to the piin of life. The lengthen lug of this spun has become so evident that revision of the old tubWs of the expii-lutloii of liuiiiuu life, lit beD inude necessary. An ofllolul temperature of 108 or 110 lu the, shade, which wax reached in several central The Awfol Hent states during the VUltailoa recent hot spell, mcuiiH a heut running ns high as 123 for pcoplo engaged In their dully vo' cations. The hot blast was like tho wuvch from a conflagration, every oh ject touched wan burning hot, nnd the tnln upon the nervous system was intense. If such weather cnnie every yeur for Kevenil weeks it would bo necessary to modify habits to tropical roudllloiiH. One store in Iowa is said to have taken fire from the sun's ruys streaming through a plate-ghiHs window, and tho building and its contents burned with almost explosive energy. It felt elsewhere as if a lighted march might set things, Including the atmosphere, on tiro spontiincoiiHly. A broad section of the country Iibh been through this visitation, which succeeded a cool spring instantly, and surprised the weather prophets and ncIciiIIhIh. The subject of weal her Is still, In the main, a myslci-y. A plcuMint. acMiiiii',inlnient of the hot weather this slimmer Is the in creasing tendency on the part of clly teamsters to provide their horses with head coverings. The really fashion able thing In eipilne millinery, says a metropolitan, exchange, Is u walking hat of Kluuw, with a high crown and holes In the Mm through which the horse's cars protrude, Hume of the teamsters who have feminine friends and a sense of humor have provided their aiilinnls with trimmed hats, gen erously decorated with cliltl'on, bright colored ribbons or a gaudy iiiilll, The hals themselves are a considerable pro tection against the sun, and when, as Is usual, a wet sponge Is placed In the crown, the horse can do his work with out danger and In grrnter comfort. It Is a sensible Innovation. There are In the United Slates, ap proximately, 2,7.'i0 counties of agricul tural importance, lii each of these counties the agricultural depart men t has a principal county correspondent, who maintains an organlatlun of three assistants, each covering a speci fied territory. Facilities arc furnished the principal correspondent to enable him to obtain regular reports from his nesislanlH. These reports he tabu lates at the end of each month, supple menting the information I'lius ob tained by his own observation and knowledge of the situation, nnd the eoiisolidiated report Is submitted to the statistician. Although there is no compensation attached to the posi tion,' an average of about 110 percent. A them reports monthly.
