CLOSE OF THE FAIR. ATTENDANCE LIGHTER YESTER DAY THAN THE DAY BEFORE. Kiicert Wert Not Hp to Standard And moI Deal of Iiat i-fju-lion Has Been Kxpresed, Hut the Fair W:i iool in hII Other Depart ment. Vi - itors Were, on t ! Whole. Generali v Nati-tied. From Saturday's Ually. The fair closed yesterday m the dust and sweltering heat of one of the hot test days of thw year. Ashh-from the '.eat and a stiff sou ih westerly gale :h-ie was no complain;, to make :.g inst U.e weather, houev.-r, for it as generally conirdid thai the pre vailing weather conditions were more JeMianie than one of me illy, c.ark days which are not unusual :n the fall The attendance was lighter than on Thursday and was probably something ".es tlian two thousand. As we have said before the exhibits were generally excellent i;i the art, live stock and agricultural departments. The heads of these departments had uade a determined and persistent effort to keep them up to standard with he result that some of them showed merits above the average and better l han in former years. Comment upon the races is hardly necesaary. They were the subject of much comment in the grand stand and along the line of people that stretched lar out to the right of the .starting wire. !n these latter days and particularly since the World's Fair the greatest at traction at county lairs is the races. If the racing events are good the fair is pronounced good, if not there is a tend ency with the madding throng to look a pon the fair as a failure. It is with the deepest regret that the 1xiepkni-. i:nt can now report the races :io better than a succession of disap pointments and this in contradiction to he fact that the premiums offered on peed are said to have bten the best in t tie state outside of Indianapolis. It ap pears to the general public that a better directed and more persistent effort in management on the part of the superin u ndent of the speed department would have not only guaranteed a greater suc cess in point of attendance but would nave assured better satisfaction to those who witnessed the races. STOCK KX HI HITS. The swine exhibit was considered one of the best ever show n in this county and included some of the best porkers ever shown anywhere in the state. JOHN A. .MCFAKL1NS EXHIBIT. John A. McFarlin exhibited one of the best herds of thirl een Poland China hogs ever shown in the state. They were bred on his farm in AY est township this county. Mr. McFarlin is the pioneer breeder of I'oland China hogs in this county and notwithstanding a spirited but friendly rivalry on th - part oi competitors in the breeding of swi;e he has managed to place Jdmseif m the lead and to hold his position. His herd exhibited here carried away th e out of a possible eight first premiums and two seconds. His exhibit included the yearling Monarch Hi, 411, a large smooth fellow weighing about M) pounds, two exceptionally fine sows, Nettie Jones and l'ride and two six months old Tecumseh sows that showed perfection in all points and caught the attention of all hog raisers. There was not an animal in the exhibit that did not show the most intelligent care m selection and breeding to which is due,no doubt, Mr.McFarlin's remark able success. His herd of hogs was one of the strong features of the fair and he, as well as the peopld of Marshall county, should have some pride in the stock of an exhibit that won so many honors with such a large and exception ally fine lot of exhibits in competition. His premiums in detail, wera as fol lows: Male, oyer 2 years old, 1st. Male, over months and under 1 year old, 1st. Sow and live pigs, 1st. JJest male, any age or breed, 1st. .Best sow with live pigs, any age or breed, 1st. Sow over 1 year old, 2d. Sow over months and under 1 year 2d. Any breeder ought to feel proud of this record. .SHEEP I' AUKS & PLANT EXHIBIT. There was some dissatisfaction with the judgement of cattle and the same was true of sheep. Parks & Plant of the JJourbon stock farm who make a specialty of high grade pure bred registered sheep for wool and mutton exhibited nine of as fine Shrop shire sheep as one might expect to find anywhere, but the three-year-old Shrop shire ram, Dolphus, was hauled away without a premium. He is one of the purest bred of the Shropshire stock, an animal of splendid proportions and one that has never before failed to jarry away the honors of a premium. He is valued at 875 and was passed as un worthy while a ram which, it is said, was offered on the ground for 820 with out a buyer being found was given first premium. While Messrs. Parks & Plant conduct a general farming and stock raising business, they make a specialty ot Shropshire sheep and have a dock of forty-one pure bred animals on their farm at JJourbon, and while Dolphus failed to get a prize they won on sheep as follows : On April buck lambs, 1st and 2d. On one-year-old ewes, 1st and 2d. Spring lamb, 2d. The JJourbon Stock Farm is said to be one of the best appointed and man aged farms in the county. Its product of stock and grain is of the best quality throughout. It is cared for likt? a gar den, and is said to resemble in many re spects a mammoth garden of two hun dred acres. A GOOD CROWD. Surren for tin fair eeiii Assured An Inlr(iii Program Ye.terd iv - I :I. I I'l. Iiiiilul. From Friday's Daily. A large crowd ot people were on the fair grounds yesterday and everyone seemed happy. The grand stand was crowded almost to the limit of its ci pacity at an early hour and much inter est was taken in the races. Kxhibitors were in high spirits and all exhibits received considerable atten tion. The Art hell was crowded all the afternoon. Stock exhibits received their share of attention, and, with the fair weather of to-day, even a larger crowd is out. The lirst race yesterday after noon was the 2:lS trot. The entries and scores were as follows : Dot L Mab Jalisco 1 1 :j :j :j Time-4:2V, 2:2V4, 2:2l. The 2:20 pace was unfinished and will probibly be completed to-day. The en tries and score were : Hoy L 1 1 2 Tony Hill 2 2 1 Nellie M dis dis Time 2:274. 2::J0, 2:30. THE FOOT RACE. Only iu Mar. Had l.:iklone to Kilter ami l't 11 U Moiirv. A purse of 200 and the woi Id's cham pionship was offered by the fair associ tion for a 20-mile foot race, to be run on the race track during the fair. It did not materialize because (leorge (Jrant, of this city, was the only runner who could be found with grit and backbone enough to post the necessary entry fee. Engledrum, who claims the chain pionsnip, was willing to enter on a sus pended rule which would let him in without paying the required fee, and a number of others showed the same dis position. JJraggadocio is not lacking with many of those who are alleged to be tleet of foot, but when it comes to a show down and a substantial guarantee of good faith many of them are not in it. In view of recent occurrences Mr. (Jrantis justly entitled to the championship. Fair Notes. Warner & Keyser were awarded first premium of buggy and road wagon. Crill & Chapman first premium on fence. Storm and stock proof. Over 7,000 rods of this fence is in use in Mar shall county. (I. "NY. Lemler took first premium on Poland China sow one year old and over. Sweepstakes on oest sows. The swine exhibit this year was full of strong competition. Many fine spec imens that showed careful breeding. Among those awarded lirst premium on Poland Chinas were John A. McFarlin, G. W. Lemler, Staley A: Co., and P. M. Yickizer. McFarlin will go to LaPorte Wickizer to North Manchester, and staley & Co. to the JJremen fair. Philip Working, of Purr Oak, also showed a fine line of high class Perk shire swine. A Disagreement. The Cooke Hippodrome company, who have been giving exhibitions at tho fair last week, offered a bet of ?r0 to any one who could ride the bucking horse, (Jr ay 12agle, riding him straight up and to a finish, as the Montana Jvid does. The bet was promptly taken by Recho," an Indian from California, who happened to be on the ground, and backed by the crowd be prepared to tackle the vicious animal. It is as serted that, seeing he was in earnest, the company backed down on the bet and would not allow him to ride, much to the chagrin of the crowd. It is claimed by the company that llecho wanted to put up a-job on the horse, which Ihey would not permit, while he claimed that all he wanted was to ex amine the saddle girth and ascertain whether it was safe or not before mounting. The Rochester Sentinel printed a handsome souvenir edition yesterday. The laying of the corner stone of Ful ton county courthouse being the oc casion. It is handsomely illustrated with zinc etchings of business and res idence buildings of that city, also cuts of prominent business and professional men of that city and of county officials. It is an excellent piece of work and worthy of careful preservation. Kxcurnloli K;il'H, Atlant Kx mhII 1ii.

' Solomon iVarmuii A'i. ra 'Long Solomon Peannan died at his home on South Michigan street Thursday evening, Sept. 11, lV.iö, at r o'clock, of a prostrated illness arising from some ill-defined stomach trouble thought by the attendant physician to be either a cancer or some other form ol malignant tumor.

A great many ot ur exchanges have for some time vied with each other in their attempts to designate the closest man, from a financial standpoint, they have ever came in contact with. Vt. do not desire to rob them of their well earned glory, but must contribute our share of information to the lraternity. YVe have in view two men one in the prairie state of Illinois and the other in our home state, Indiana. The first one was a newspaper man, who had in his employ a printer, who worked early and late for his taskmaster. On one occasion the boss left the ollice in charge of this poor printer, and went oil" on an investigating tour. Tho print labored day and night to bring the issue out on time, in ail working some eigh teen hours overtime. When the pro prietor arrived home Saturday evening, lie complimented the printer on his Avork and handed out the week's salary. Counting the amount given him, the printer remarked that he thought a lit tle extra for the work done should be given him, also stating that the wages were two cents short. The generous proprietor informed him that it was all right, impressing on his mind that he had furnished him with a postage stamp the lirst part of the week. The other person in our mind is a farmer, lie became dissatisfied with the publisher of a newspaper because he did not advocate the principles in his sheet he (the farmer) desired, lie entered the ollice and, in tragic tones, informed the editor he desired to stop the paper. He gave ins reasons, paid the trembling publisher the 45 ceidsdue anil walked out of the oll'ue with the bearing of a king. The next day this non-subscriber met the editor, and had the nerve to ask for the loan of a half dollar. The newspaper man silently granted the request, but up to date bus iiot seen the color of l hat lilty-cent piece. Thinks lie Knott Hie Mindi icr. L. I- Letherman left the city this morning for Dunfee, a small station on the Nickel Plate road east from this city. In conversation "with .Mr. L,. a Star reporter learned that the inspector has almost a positive clue to the murderer of Postmaster (i. M. Singer, who was murdered in his ollice Tuesday morn ing. Some time ago tho postollice was robbed. Letherman was put on the case, and with the assistance of the postmaster, was instrumental in finding the thief and sending him to the peni tentiary. The fellows time of impris onment expired a few weeks ago and he returned to the scene of his crime, swearing revenge on the parties who sent him up." This same fellow is charged with the murder and as the evidence against him is very strong, his conviction is only the question of a few days. Valparaiso Star. 0t.P vriCHORS. As I ico v-r-!

Texas has fifteen counties without a postotlice, and, more remarkable still, sixty-four counties w ithout newspapers. It is said that it costs 210 to convert a Chinaman. The worst of it is, after the expenditure of that much cash, very few of them remain converted. The (Joshen Democrat aptly says: "If you are a business man and want a lit tle rest and seclusion, it is not neces sary to go away to a summer resort. (Juit advertising. Quite a number are taking advantage of it." The burnt portion of I'ierceton, we are informed, is assuming a business like aspect. New buildings are already under wav of construction. Montieello bas just passed an ordi nance prohibiting the use of sidewalks for bicycles. A game of ball at Warsaw next Mon day, will be played for the benefit of the poor in that town. Warsaw Times: Mrs. F. M.Purkett, of Plymouth, was the guest of lier par ents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Wahl. Notre Dame opens this year with Ö00 pv.pils in attendance.

A decision rendered by Judge Mo Cabeof the Supreme Court is of consid erable interest to corporated towns in In liana. A man by the name of Mar tin was arrested for selling rattan chairs without a license and lined .trlO. :t l.ittl- TK far. The vindictiveness displayed by some people regarding the moral and religious desecration is sometimes carried too far. This appl es torcibly to the utter ances ot our Republican editor tins w.eek when speaking-of ball playing on Sunday, etc. His exact words in clos ing the quib reads like this: "There is no more law justifying the keeping open of a cigar store, restaur ant, clothing, grocery or fruit and drug store, tnan there is to keep open saloons; and if one is closed they all should be' According to the argument laid down by Urother J.rooke, it the drug, fruit and cigar stores remain open, then it is right and proper that tlie saloons should be permitted to deal out liquor. If, as he says, there is no law that recognizes the diilerence between a drug store and a saloon, then the laws of Indiana need attending to. His remedy is, if you cannot close the cigar stores and other places that dis pense luxuries, and also the drug stores that deal out necessities, why throw open the doors of the saloon and give them an opportunity to make a few dimes. While we are in favor of closing all business houses on Sunday, we are led to believe thai the .Republican went a little too far in its ideas on Sunday closing. Of course if you close one let thtni all be closed. If a man, woman or child should be taken sick on Sun day, and in dire need of drugs, that should cut no figure in the case. They ought not to get sick on that day, and therefore should wait until Monday for the medicine. Take it all in all, it would be better for the editor of the. Republican to re vise the assertions made, and retract from his position assumed upon the saloons being allowed full .swing at least. It has been known for some time by a few that a certain prominent business man and church worker of this city has been conducting a poker game on the side, and when Chas. Howe, a section hand, living not far from this city, wan dered about town a few nights since with his month's pay in his pocket, he fell jn easy victim to these sharks. Howe allowed himself to be coaxed into a piiet game and was lleecedof all ho had. When he realized what had been done his wrath knew no bounds but how to get Lock the money of which he had been deliberately robbed was a mystery tot deep for him to solve. Finally the fellow who runs the game ascertained that Rowe was doing a good deal of talking and was liable to get them all into trouble, when he set about to effect a settlement, in which it is said he succeeded, but not before the matter had reached the ears of the city ollicers and prosecutor. It is thought that the matter will be pushed by them, and if it is, which it certainly should bo, a state of affairs will bo developed which will surprise many of our citi zens. A nACE FOR LIFE. A ICatlroiiN-r in Montana IIa a Close Call with: .nl of I'ies;;in Indians. In Aueust f 'CO I was running a bull I train between Helena and Fort Hi nton. After going about two miles 1 shot an j y old doe antelope. accompanied by two fawns, and I determined that I would have all three of those animals, and gave chase, tiring whenever I culd get within range, until I had exhausted my ammunition. This was before the days of breech-loading guns. I finally got the two fawns, and tied them on be blnd my sad. He and started to catch up with the "tröin." I was as much as six miles behind, without a cap or a bullet, only two empty Fix-shooters and a ritle. I noticed that my saddle pony kept turn ing to the left Finally I looked over that way myself, and could see the j head and shoulders of a person down in : the coulee. I spurred Into a gallop, and In a moment could see that there were eight persons instead of on4, and also that they were Plegan Indians in full war paint and feathers. They Imme diately gave chase, and for the next six miles occurred one of the mot excit ing races that I ver took part In. Pee ing that the weight of the fawns was telling on the fpeed of my horse, I cut them loose, and at the same time threw away my overcoat, and taking the ramrod out of my rifle I used It as a whip and gained a little on my pursuers. The last two miles of the race was In plain view of tho train. The train halted, and I supposed that one of the drivers would come to my assistance, but no relief came; they dropped their whips and jaws at the same time and waved their hats and halloed "Run!" I was d'dng the best I could. The Indians chased me to within about 150 yards of the train, when Kob Chesnut. now of Chesnut Val ley, came in sight from tne direction of Sun river and opened fire on the In dians. They stormed rhnsinr me and ran the other way. It never occurred j to the drivers that they had guns until after Mr. Chesnut commenced firing. Exchange. ELECTRICITY IN A BIG CITY. There Seems No Kin! to the lies to Whieh It Can lie Applied. There seems no end to the enormous forward strides of electricity in all of Its uses, but the ailvar.ee it has mad as a. motive power here in Chicacro within eighteen months have been al most revolutionary, nays tho News. Two years ago an elevated railroad run by electricity at the world's fair was a curiosity. Ten miles of elevated road are now operated daily in this city with electricity, and plans are afoot to use that motive power on all the "I road.- of the city. Scarcely has the public be come aware of those plans until it transpires that the Illinois Central Is considering the advisability of running Its suburban trains by electricity. If this road should adopt the electric fluid and discard steam on its suburban service there seems every reason to be lieve that the experience of all other ex perimenters in that direction would be repeated; that the economy of electric over steam propulsion on this line, -is! elevated and street car lines, would M- duce other roads to abandon the ?team locomotive and adopt the electric mo tor. In hundreds of less evrdent ways electricity has supplanted steam as a motive power. Elevators, printing presses, and all kinds of small machines are driven by it all over the city. This revolution in motive power is of enor mous significance to the whole people of a city like Chicago. About half the of fenses of such a city come from the use of steam. Steam means smoke, noise, cinders, g-ases, waste-littered grounds. Electricity can be conducted and ap plied unknown to the sense of sijjat, hearing, and smell. Its general adop tion on the railroads would Involve an Immense gain In cleanliness for the city. If it could be produced in proper ly constructed central stations and ap plied to all the wheels now turned by 6team Chicago would Instantly become almost a new city. A SORRY BULLHEAD. The Foolish Fish. ltd erf erred with a Water Motor and Came to a Hail Kml. One little bull-head species of the cat fish escaped from Lake McKusick some time since, and, no doubt, Is sorry for It; we are, anyway. He came down the mains of the water company and float ed up the pipes leading to our motor, where he stopped: so did our motor, presses, etc. lie didn't use good judg ment as he went into the motor tail first, just fitting so that he stoprd the machine. Had he gone at it head first, the opening was such that he wouldn't have stopped the machine and called Into active service the water works man and a machinist. He would have kept going round in such a lively man ner, that in the course of time, his mother-in-law wouldn't have recognized him. Bob Butler thinks he had him on his hook once out in McKuslck's Lak.i, when he was a boy Hob, not the fish Judging from his antiquated appear ance. Friday is without question th proper day for fish, but catching their In a water motor is mlKhty unprofitabU business. We never did like fish, and we hate 'em worse thaji ever now. Ex change. Seen on a Train. Thirty-two -women got on the train at Tacoma. They had been attending th waterworks convention and were on their wav to Portland. It seemed that one of their number had shied the track and had stayed behind. Thirty two tongrues roasted this woman from one station to another until she was pretty well done. They kicked on what she ate and what she wow and what she didn't wear. Her shoes were too small; her feet were too big. and she didn't know how to comb her hair and It wasn't her own anyway, and the brakeman and conductor would hurry through this car as it they were afraid of something. Two of the delegates went Into the dlng-oar for something to eat. while the Wst ate out of baskets and sacks. After they haxl grot out the thirty remaining Jumped onto them without mercy; tlw stuff was off about the track-shier; they ran their age up and their characters donr; they ac cused them of having; thetr hired girls' dresses on and said one of them tried to make a mash on a Taooma policeman and the other speke to a cigar sign.

'inanity Expert Snys lie It in Conn try A!uiii in lliig'uml. Hr. Forbes Winflow, a well-known 'ns-Mikv spei i-iiist of London, is in New orK. He says Jack the Ripper is in- enrcrrated in a country lunatic asylum in England. The story told by Dr. Winslow follows: "'Jack the Ripper' was a medical student of good family. lie was a young man of slight build with light hair and blue eyes. Ib studied very hard and his mind, being naturally weak, gave way. He became a religious enthusiast and attfiided enrly service every morning in St. Paul's. His religious fervor resulted in homicidal mania toward the womvn of the street and impelled him to mur der them. He lodged with a man whom I know, and suspicion was first direc ted toward him by reason of the fact that he returned to his lodgings at ir-r a sonablo hours; that he had inn"'m-r-able coats and hats stained with Mood. I have in my possession now a p:ir of Canadian moccasins stained with blood that the 'Ripper' wore whil on one of his murderous expeditions, but at that time they refused to co-operate with me. Subsequently the young man was placed in confinement and removed to an asylum, where he is to-day. Since his incarceration there has been no repetition of the horrible murders that he perpetrated. These facts are all known to the Pnglish authorities, and it is conceded that the man now in tho asylum is Mack the Kipper It wa3 (U ei:: d desirable, however, to hush the matter up. The details were too hor rible to be made the subject of a pub lic trial, and there was no doubt of th man's hopeless insanity." STEALS WTH fly paper. Novc-l Schmie Tli:it .lohn I'.erger Worked on St. .Iniiies rlmrrh. A new use for fly paper was discov ered by Chicago police recently when they arrested John Berger at St. James Catholic church. For some time past Father McRuire had noticed that the poor- boxes placed at the church door wore not yielding as much money as formerly. John Hogan and John Ken neally kept watch of the boxes and saw Rerger lingering near one. Police offi cers were sent for. Berger ran into the priest's house, where he was caught. Ho tried to throw away a large piece of lly paper, but was prevented. In his pockef was $1G0 in small change, all the pieces of money being covered with sticky gum from the paper. Berger "s scheme .to beat the boxes was to insert a long narrow strip of the sticky paper in the narrow slit of the box and pull it out with several coins adhering to the gum. Wonderful Iii I. The "goose plant," one of nature's strange and marvelous productions, is the most rare and unique botanical odd ity known to the naturalists. Its hom is in the superheated ooze of the Amazon river swamps, and but one specimen of it, that exhibited at the World's Fair two years ago. has ever been seen on the North American conti nent. It is so scarce that even in Brazil it is considered a wonder of wonders, and those who were fortunate enough to get a glimpse of the specimen in the Jackson park collection may congratu late themselves on having seen some thing that would have been a first-class surprise to a native Amazonian. The "geese" which grow on this remarkable plant are real geese, as far as appear ances go. In the full-grown plant they have well-fonied bodies of gooscly size, shape and color; breasts appar ently formed tj stem buffeting waves, and necks and heads which so exactly imitate those of a real goose as to al most make animated nature ashamed of herself. The Clock Industry. The manufacturers of clocks have not been so busy at any time during several years past as they are at present; tlie factories devoted to the production of silver-plated ware are running full time, with large complements of opera tives; the watch manufacturers have this year given their hands shorter va cations than usual, and are increasing their already largo forces; the jewelry manufacturers of Providence, New York, Newark and other centers aro running their factories to their utmost capacity; the importers of art goods, pottery and bric-a-brac aro receiving extensive shipments of goods; makers of cut glass are producing many new patterns and are working every frame in their plants. Thus the anticipation of a golden shower during tho fall sea son is evident throughout the manu facturing branches of our industry, and that the manufacturers will tut be dis appointed all signs indicate.

Flowers for funeral offerings are oftenest now sent loose In a box, set pieces being justly regarded as stiff and plainly suggestive. Wreaths are still used, but they have become so full as to have !ost the hollow of the center, and are, instead, a round mat of flowers Something different In floral designs for those sad occasions is tho oval wreath, of Ahich one side is made solidly of ferns and leaves and the other half as solidly a mass of flowers.
