Outside of the eorn entry, all ibid'ii and held products were well re pre seilte!. The poultry exhibit is said to be one of the bliest ever seen at a nullit; fair. Outside of the exhibits the features of importaiiee looked for were the races and the ball jjame be t ween Nappanee and Waisaw. Of the latter, it envois the pround to say it was very hununy, as the score, !!'; to 1, in favor of Warsaw, plainly shows. While it is true that the wind blowing at that time made it almost impossible to judge a ball in the held, yet the Warsaw bat tery was invincible. The only accident oceurin in this one-sided affair, we understand, was a broken linger for one of the Xappanee boys. The center of attraction was the races, liy the time the races were called the grand stand and surrounding gro'Mids were packed. The result of the races was as f lows: In the 2:l! trotting race, Kunice wen first money, .lames S., second and Mem third; Little Joker beJig withdrawn. In the 2:ls trotting race, "Maggie 1 won fast money, Kieh llrowa, second and l)t I,., third. The races were exciting and each, of them took more than three heats to de cide the victor. Owing to the high wind the balloon ascension was post poned. It is beyond question the most suc cessful fair ever held in llourbon, so say those wh seem to' know, and ere another year rolls round if our sister city intends to take care of the people who come there, some radical changes along one or two important lines will become necessary. We know they will pardon us for referring to them, but they know the adage: "As others see us." The principal defect in llourbon is her sidewalks. To say they are bad, is putting it very light. While they have a few substantial walks, there is hardly a street w here boards cannot be found ready to liy up and strike the pedestrian in the face. The walks along the business streets are entirely to narrow, and in conjunction with a large crowd, compel the greater num ber to take the middle of the street I it not withstai ding these potent de fects the fair wai a good one and gave satisfaction toad who attended.

Everly and Theo Cressner oc cupied an apartment enroute to JJour bon When interviewed regarding the feasibility of giving their seat to some lady, they showed a willingness to va cate for one, but up to the time of ar riving at l.ourboit they had not ar rived at a decision regarding who would vacate. We noted several of our neighbor hoys who succumbed to the charms of Plymouth's young ladies. It was a hard job to secure supper at the eating houses at Uourbon yester day. We heard some of our young men yesterday evening talking of taking a trip to Warsaw. We are not informed as to the result of their deliberations. With the train two hours late, and standing room in the depot for about half of the people waiting for tho train, time hung heavily. The ground in front of the llourbon depot must be in good condition this morning from the tramping it received by unfortunate passengers trmg to keep warm. The Jnhi:i'i:mh:nt tent at the fair grounds received its share of callers. With comfortable chairs, copies of the paper to read and a courteous attendant, the I x i k r kx i kn t will bo remembered by many who have not received it as a weekly visitor. To Owners of lV'ies.

IJootblacks have been Introduced as an experiment on the Broadway line of the lirooklyn Klevated Railroad, says New York World. There is one In every smoklnsr-car, ready to "shine 'em up" for a nickel at any time of the day or night. They clean the cars and work on a commission. They are not directly hired by the company. The privilege was leased to a man. who hires the boys, if the experiment proves success ful the ln)y3 will be put In the smoking-cars of aM the elevated roads in lirooklyn.

Causes for complaint on account of the condition of the Midway, seems to I be multiplying rather than being on the decrease. The particular section known as the Midway in this city, lies along the south side of Laporte s'reet be tween Michigan ami Center streets and it has undoubtedly fallen into a deplor able state af degeneracy. It is infected with a microbe that threatens to devel ope and spread to such an extent as to unfavorably affect theentire municipal ity. It will do this unless prompt measures are taken on the part of the people of this city to change the pre vailing conditions of that block. To give some idea cd' what these con ditions are, it is only necessary to state that a great many citizens already shun that vicinity aft ?r night fall. It i? getting to be considered that a lady witout an escort is hardly safe lom insult in that block in the evening and we are reliably informed that certain young ladies have been forbidden by itheu parents to travel on the s tith side of Laporte street in this section in the evening under any condition. t seems to be a place of congregation for all the hoodlums in town where they congregate and indulge in public pro fanity and vile language ot every de scription, and are not unfreijuently en gaged in fighting and drawling. There is a cause for this, and there is a reason why it has not been stopped. .lust what that reason is we are not now pre pared to state: but it appears that eith er the oiheers, whose duty it is to j re serve peace and order, are neglectful of their duty or there are not enough offi cers. The latter may be true. Plym outh is a growing city. Old metho.ls will not do what they once did under the new conditions. This is a matter which should be looked to by the proper officials and should be given immediate attention. and it is probable if they do not, a pe tition will be circulated among th.- bus iness men of the city and that a renion- strmce will be presented to the city council. In th at case it will be neces sary for the council to take action, and if the council is compelled to act in the matter it is more than likely that some one or more private citizens will be compelled to take action in the matter on their own account for the benefit of the community. The city of Plymouth cannot, in this particular stage of her history, permit a condition to continue which is certain to militate against the good name of the city, and we have faith enough in her private citizens, in her city otlicials and in the general pub lic to believe it will not much longer be permitted to exist. Tin- tlitlwu.v Kl iui-l. The Midway district is undergoing a process of elongation. It lias extended east across the river where its peculiar ities are somewhat different from those of the heart of the Midway, but none the less incompatible with social har mony and good order. Thursday night there was a case of wife beating out in that section, the crull details of which beggar descrip tion. The neighborhood was aroused and as one gentleman expressed it: 'Thought at first that the dogs were killing all the children." It soon be came evident that the (togs were inno cent of complicity in the matter, and that the liege lord of the lady of the family was giving his wife a most bru tal trouncing. The l'fe of J'eat. The peat-bed is the embryo coal field. If peat-beds could remain undisturbed, they would, in time, be transformed into mineral coal. They are composed of the roots of plants which grow very rapidly. Interlacing and matting themselves un til they are almost like a solid mass. Thes? roots die out below, but the top lav73 are the crowns from which the new growth springs every year. Nat urally when they have remained for a long time unmolested, the layer of roots becomes enormously thick. Peat is used In almost all of the countries of Kurope for fuel. Recent investigations by the Department of State assure us that tho cultivation of this plant and its utiliza tion would be of the greatest advantage to the poor who have to depend upon coal for healing purposes. When peat Is dug by those who understand Its val ue, the top layer is taken off and care fully put aside. The root growth Is then CUt out and the sod is replaced and pressed down to be ready for growth the tftext season. It Is often the case that under the top layers there will be found a quantity of root-stalks, leavfs, and sometimes trunks of trees. This be comes quite solid and is called peat fiber. Below this there Is a black, pitchy conriound that in some instances, when it has long been In position, may bo cut smoothly, showing a surface almost like wax. This Is the most valuable part of the peat, and gives out a tremendous beat and a good deal of black smoke. Peat bogs must be drained and careful ly managed in order to yield the best results. Peat Is cut iut In blocks, and Is sometimes pressed or molde Into shape. In l'rnprr Company.
