kinds of tales about bears and

Last year when the' had to carry

but little game and that very wild

Senator Foraker's chief manager
former Lieutenant Governor War
ren G. Harding, is attacking the
state Republican leaders for rein
troducing the defeated Gov.Herrick
in politics by choosing him as
temporary chuirman of the coming
state convention. In his newspn
per Gov. Harding tells the people
why Herrick has been chosen to
utter the keynote by saying:
"Porhaps lie has seen the things
in machine methods that brought
blame upon his head and he is
edginginto thecirole of leadership
again to be able to correct abuses
and pay some debts.
"The Ut3 Senator Hanna wa8 a
jjreat, strong, dominant leader, but
much of his strength politically
came from his ready footing of the
bills. He introduced Herrick into
state politics to help pay the
freight. And the freight" waB
high in 1800. Hut Herrick never
flinched. He stood the run in
1800 and paid big bills without
rebate, That kind of a political
factor isn't out out readily. Just
now such men aro stronger with
the party managers than ever.
"Mr. Herrick is a good oiler and
has an nil well of his own, The
lines to corporate nil tanks are
broken. This, in part, will ao
count for ex-Govornor Herriok's
utterance of the keynote,"
"Young men keep out of poll
tic," Bays Senator Piatt. That
advice would be all right If Sena
tor Plutt had said; keep out of Re
publican machine politics, whioh
are rotten to the core, Every citl.
zen of a Republic should take
enough interest in politios to in

to the result of his investigations.

well pleased with the stand you
are taking against Ross John
White, it is having a good ell'ect
with all good Republicans that
want a Square Deal and honeEtry
in politics.
It is reported by one of the
Bosses Puppies that they had
Clmtfiold fixed and that he was
with them now. We can't believe
that John White or any of his
gang are smart onough to hood
wink you like they did McKay
and Will Keynes. John White is
the biggest liar unhung. He
promised Mr. Frasure that he wns
put on the election board again
but they put a man on that suited
the gang better. With Chairman
Hull who I heard is a vulgar
drunkard as is also the man they
put in for deputy supervisors of
Now Bro. Chatfield we hope you
will stand iirni and fight for the
right as you have in the past, the
honest Republicans of the county
are with you. Yours Truly,

A Surgeon's Story of an Operation ani
a Grateful Beast.
A veterinary surgeon who had
won reputation was once summon
ed by P. T. Barnum to come to hia
stables to attend Hebe, n favorite
elephant, who had hurt her foot.
She was n splendid creature and
worth a small fortune. The surgeon
told the story of his experience and
its results in Our Dumb Animals:
Hebe had stepped on a nail or a
bit of iron, and it had penetrated
the tender part of her foot. She
was in intense agony almost wild
with pain.
Long before we reached the in
closure in which she was kept wc
could hear her piteous trumpoting,
and when we entered we found her
on three legs, swinging the sore foot
slowly backward and forward and
uttering long cries of anguish. Her
keeper said: "Don't you be afraid,
sir. Hobo's got sense." But I own
that I felt rather queer and shaky
us 1 went up to tho huge beast.
The men employed about the
show came round us curiously a3 I
bent down to examine the foot.
While 1 was doing so as gentlv as
I could I felt a light touch on my
.hair, and as I turned und saw tho
great trunk behind me"t had an
awful sugge3tiveness.
"I Bhall have to cut, and cut
deep," I said to her keeper. He
said a law words in some lingo, evi
dently intended for the elephant's
understanding only. Then ho shout
ed with the utmost coolness, "Cut
away !"
Well, 1 made one gash with the
knife. I felt the grasp on my'hair
tighten perceptibly, yet not ungen
tly, Cold drops of perspiration stood
out all over uie, and I hesitated as
to whether I should go on.
"aliail 1 cut again.'"' I managed
to call out,
"Cut away!" came the response.
This stroke did tho work.- A mass
of fetid matter followed the knife
the abscess was lanced. We sprayed
out the foot, packed it and boiind it
up, The relief must havo been im
mediate, for the grasp on my hair
relaxed, and the elephant drew a
Jong sigji.
A year and a half after this I
was called to western Massachusetts.
Barnum's show was there. You may
ue sure l caneu to inquire lor my
distinguished patient.
"Hebe's well and hearty, sir," the
ktaper answered me. "Come in and
see lier, ahe'll b glad to see you."
I'o' a moment she looked at ind
indifferently, then steadily and with
interest. She next reached out her
trunk and laid it caressingly on my
hair, and then she lifted Up hor
foot, now whole and healthy, and
showed it to me. That' & sober

Su Numerous Tfmt (he Grandest Fair
In Ohio's History Is As
sured For This Year.
Many Special Educational Exhibits,
Including the Construction of a Mod- '
ern Macadamized Highway, Under t
the Personal Supervision of Hon. '
Sam Huston, State Highway Com-1
mlssloner, Will Be Features at the '
Coming Exhibition Low Railway ,

Special Excursion Rates on All In-

In the early statehood of Ohio,
through the wise forethought of those
sturdy pioneers who migrated to the
great Northwest Territory, there were
founded agricultural societies whose
fundamental principles wore the edu
cation of the people along the lines of
agricultural pursuits. This they aimed
to accomplish by annual exhibitions
of the choicest products of the farm,
and in thus annually bringing together
the populace to view and study the ex
hibits presented to engender a feeling
of universal brotherhood that would
result In great benefit to all.
The good resulting from these even
necessarily limited exhibitions was
go forcibly manifested that in 184G
the General Assembly enacted a law
creating the Ohio State Board of
Agriculture, and among the Important
duties devolving upon it was the
holding of an annual state fair and In
dustrial exposition for illustrating
progress and promoting industrial af
fairs. The first exhibition under its
auspices was held In September, 1830,
near Cincinnati, and since that time
the Ohio State Fair has steadily ad
vanced until today it is recognized as
the "ih-emier institution of its kind in
the Union.
The one nbjec of these annual ex
hibitions is to present to the people,
in well systematized divisions and
classes, a colossal exhibit of the fruits
of their Industry, that they may study
the advancement made and profit
thereby. To successfully accomplish
this the exhibition must be of such
comprehensiveness, and the exhibits
so arranged, that visitors may learn
much even through a casual Inspec-
tlon, while to the man Interested lu
any particular department the ex
hibits should be so numerous and
meritorious that the lessons preseuted
(re of inestimable value.
That the Ohio Stato Fair and Indus
tilal Exposition Is aulllclently largo to
afford this oppoitunlty is recognized
when we consider that Its present per
manent home in Columbus consists of
one hundred and fifteen acres of beau
tlful park ground that havo been
molded Into a delightful resort, with

It Is Impossible to summarize the

displays, Is of such merit as to attract
wide-spread attention, but perhaps
those In which the people as a whole

live stock exhibits and the displays of
fnbor-savliiR farm and shop machinery.
Tho buildings dovotod to housing
and exhibiting live stock are perman

the swlno building Is 180x181) root;
the sheep building being an exact du

the delight of every fancier, as un im
posing glass and brick stiucture, lo
cated In close proximity to the live
stock buildings, is devoted to this
class of exhibits. It is equipped with
tlio most modern coops and pens, and
will accommodate si." thousand birds.
The displays of labor-saving ma
chinery occupy three mammoth build
ings, with a total exhibition space of
10C.400 square feot, while for the
heavier forms of harvesting and road
machinery that is shown in operation,
ten acres of correctly platted ground
are set aside for these exhibits. The
farmer and the mechanic are equally
Interested In the displays in this de
partment, and great crowds con
tinually throng the buildings and open
ground. For the coming Exposition
tho assignments of exhibition space
for these displays have already been
made, and the applications were so
numerous as to completely 1111 the
bulldlmjs and platted, ground, hence
visitors are assureU'a macTithery ex
hibit far surpassing any ever present
ed at any previous state or national
exposition. The displays in the other
departments of the Fair will be
equally as numerous and meritorious
as those in the two departments above
mentioned, and the manager -conn-dentially
predict that 190G will provo
the bnniibr year in State Fair history.
For the coming exhibition, to be
held September 3, 4, 5, li and 7, many
special educational features will be
presented, chief among which will be
the construction of a modern macada
mized road, under tho direct super
vision of Hon. Sum Huston, State
Highway Commissioner. To the man
interested in the Improvement of our
highways this will prove most Inter
esting and educational, as tho work
will be done according to the latest
methods in constructing road surfaces
of limestone, and will orabraco every

One of th leading educational fea

6 and 7, will bo the construction of a
modern macadamized roiidway, under
the personal supervision of Hon. Sam
Huston, Ohio's State Highway Com
missioner. This, no doubt, wll prove
one of the most interesting exhibits
on tho grounds, as Mr. Huston Is rec
ognized as an expert authority on
road construction, and the most mod
ern methods will be employed In con
structing 'this damplo roadway. Tho
work will be done according to the
latest method of constructing road
surfaces of limestone, and will exhibit
every step of tho work from tha grad

in addition to the use of limestone la
each stage of process, the use of glacial
boulders, commonly known as "nigger
heads," for the bottom layer will be Il
lustrated. Tho sample roadway will bo
400 feet in length and 30 feet in
width. That tho people may havo op
portunity of studying each process In
the work, the following programme of
construction will be can led out:
Monday Sopt. 3, the necessary grad
ing will be dono, and the roadbed pre
parod and rolled. Tuesday, the first
layer of stone will be spread aud roll
ed; 'Wednesday, the second layer of
stone spread and rolled; Thursday, tho
finishing process of watering and roil
ing will bo attended to and tho last
day of the fair will be devoted to fin
ishing up any part of the work not
completed. To further illustrate the
work Mr. Huston will be present each
day to explain the Important features
as the work proceeds. This should
bo welcome news to the citizens of
every community, as road building Is
one of tho nerloui problems confront

the supervision of an expert.
