The lnrgo crowd was tlicro to bo thrilled and tho recollection ot tho thrill will doubtless remain with them for many dnys. Tho Fair grounds Is now a busy hlvo of activity. Hundreds of exhib itors aro busy gottlng their exhibits In position, booths nnd stands aro be ing constructed, nnd the Interior ot tho different buildings aro being fes tooned with thousands of yards of many-colored bunting. All repairs have been mndo and unsightly spots have been wiped out and something pleasing to the eye hns been substi tuted. Thousands of electric lights aro Doubt has been oxpressed ns toluomg placed In position by a largo The Management, of the Texas State Fair State Positively that this Death-Defying Performance Will De Presented. whether Dlavolo will perform his force of men. Tho olecttlcal display much exploited and seemingly Impos- not uo 0no of tho least nttracttvo slblo feat of looplng-thc-loop at tho features of tho fnlr, tho tall steel Texas State Fair, which will open la Dallas next Saturday morning and for that reason tho falf management has been requested to mako a statement that will at once settle nil doubt on tHis point. Thoy state positively that tho death dcTylng performnnco will not only bo performed onco but that It will bo pre sented at least three times dally du ring the entire time of the Fair. This Is positive and tho first exhibition of tho original Dlavolo shaking dlco with death In his mad and reckless niBh nround tho forty-foot loop will bo giv en Saturdny morning September 2G. Tho performance of which Dlavolo's ride Is tho culmination offers many other features that aro quite as re markable, and to show what thoy aro thought of In other localities, at tho same tlmo giving a description ot their nature, tho following Is con densed from tho Tacoma ledger of August 19. A series of acts was put on, says tho ledger, speaking of this performance, culminating In the loop of tho loop by Dlavolo, but several of tfie acts proved most sensational In thomsclves. Charles G. Kllpatrlck's own original feat of riding on a wheel down a steep flight of wooden steps, Imitation ot tho famous rldo down tho west, steps of tho cnpltol at Washing ton, was a fitting lead-up to Dlavolo's turn. As In the cbbo ot tho loop tho steps wore brilliantly Illuminated with double rows of electric lights, showing the daring porformcr almost falling from tho great height to tho ground below. That Kilpatrlck has but ono leg with which to pedal only enhances tho sensation. Tho runway down the saw. loop Is of planking sot crossways with a broad black strip down tho center to guldo tho performer In his rapid run. It is only a momentary performance, but every ono rose and cheered tho Intrepid man as ho turn ed completely over high In mid air nnd shot from tho loop onto level ground llko a stono from a catapult. tower In tho center of tho grounds alono bearing COO Incandescent lamps tho wholo bolng surmounted by an enormous arc light. Tom Prlvett, who has been dubbed tho red nnd reckless rider of tho rough and rolling range, has sent word that ho hns gathered together tho wildest and wooliest herd of untamed steers nnd outlaw horses that Texas can produce and thai ho hns succeeded In securing tho services of men who aro unparalleled as rough and skilled riders. Tho broncho-busting exhibits promlso to bo tho best over gotten together, and tho probability of Prl vetts $500 challonge being accepted will ndd Interest to what will bo any how an exciting and thrilling scries of events. An exhibit that will bo of Interest to manufacturers and all users of coal for industrial purpocos will ho a practical demonstration of tho utll lty of Texas oil as a fuel.

ALL KINDS OF INSURANCE, REAL ESTATE and BONDS DEATH PENALTY FOR KILLING TOWN MARSHAL COCKRILL. A Surprise to all. Defendant If not Moved Verdict Does not Affect Him But His Brother Is Much Distressed. PRESIDENT PETERSCALLSATTEN TION TO FORMER COUNSEL. He Gives More Advice and Tells Farmers Who Fail to Follow It Not to Rail at Speculators Who Sees tho Result. Cythlnnn, Ky Sept. 23. After n trial lnstlng olght dnys, tho Jury In tlio enso of Curtis Jett, charged with tho murder of Town Marshal ThoniaA Cockrlll nt Jackson, Ky., July 21, 1002, nt 5:10 this afternoon rendered n ver dict of guilty, nnd Axed tho pulshmont nt death. Tho Jury retired nt 2:44 p. in. When the Jury entered tho courtroom nfter agreeing rm n verdict, quiet rolgned for n few moments. Jett'a mother had gone away earllor under tho Im pression that no verdict would ho reached, and tho verdict of denth, coming about two hours after tho Jury was out, was a surprise to every ono In tho courtroom. Tho reading of the verdict did not affect Jett, but his brother was very much distressed. His mouth quivered and ho slowly turned pale. Just previous to tho Jury reaching an agreement, Judgo Osborne, think ing that they would not reach a verdict to-day, sent for them, Intending to call off tho session for tho rest of tho day. But the Jury sent back word that nn ngrccment hnd been readied, and that It would bo ready to report n finding to tho Court In five minutes. IClljah McKlnney served as fore man of the Jury, and after tho deliv ering of tho verdict to tho court the Jury was polled. Tho death sentence was then read to Jett by Clerk B. J. Robinson, after which ho was glvon ovor to tho custody of tho Doputy Sheriff. Col. Wanton, Jett's lawyer, will fllo a motion for a new trial to morrow morning, and If tho motion Is overruled ho will appeal tho caso to tho Court of Appeals at Frankfort, Ky. This has been tho second trial of Curtl3 Jett on tho charge of murder. In his first trial for tho murder of J. B. Mnrcum at Jackson, Ky., Jett nnd Thomas White were sentenced to llfo Imprisonment. Attorney Blanton stated tonight that ho will move for a now trial on Thursday on tho grounds of absent witnesses, absent counsel and erro neous rulings. Sentence will then bo passed on Jott and his attorney will bo nllowed until tho November term to (lie his bill of ovldenco for tho up peal. Blnnton said Jett hnd authorized him to say that ho has nothing to confess nnd ho will mako no confession. Tho Jurors ngrecd nmong them selves not to dlvulgo tho proceedings In the Jury room. Ono juror, how ever, stated that for four ballots eleven Jurors voted for the death pon alty and ono for a llfo sentence. All agreed on the fifth ballot. Mr. H. S. Peters, president of tho State Cotton Growers' Association, has Issued tho following nddross to tho farmers: "CaUert, Texas, Sopt. 23. Just n year ago 1 gave out to tho press an Intervlow In which I advised tho farmers to market thulr cotton slow ly, nnd If they did thoy would real ize ton cents before another crop was planted. "Was I right? "Did tho fnrmors follow my ml- vlce7 Had they dono go who would havo hud tho millions, tho so-called bull pool, bonded by Messrs. Sully nnd Brown, now posboss. Now Listen, Farmers. "It you will mnrket tho prosent crop slowly, feeding tho mills Just enough to keep thorn running you will seo 15 cents before the end of this cot ton year. "It you fall to follow my ndvlco don'tr also at tho speculators who aro smart and wlso enough to seo that wo havo n short crop and that tho world Is consuming moro cotton than we nre producing. "There Is uo doubt that tho pros cut crop will bo a very short ono, no matter how favorable tho weath er conditions may bo from now on; and If wo havo an early frost It will mako tho shortest crop in re cent years. "Tho dny of a bumper crop for Texas Is gono never to return so long a3 tho boll weevil is with us. "Cotton at ten cents 1b cheap, and tho world will sooner or later havo to rcallzo It. "Tho only reason that ten cents looks high Is because the mills have not been acustomed to pay this price. In a fow years from now wo will look back at ten cent cotton, much as we do now at Cc cotton a thing of tho past. "Tho Cotton Growers' Association nt the July meeting of tho Farmers' congress pnesed strong resolutions for tho farmers to mnrket their cotton slowly, and I tako this opportunity to call attention to tho resolution as tho farmors aro now In a position to profit theroby. 13.
