Small Crowd in Attendance at Fair Tuesday Night—Light ing Inadequate. A small crowd scattered through the grandstand witnessed the first night's program at the state fair on Tuesday. Inadequate lighting facilities made It impossible to carry out the sched uled program in full. A dim spot light did not sufficiently brighten the track to permit the equestrian act, and the owners of the bucking bronchos deemed it unwise to attempt stunts in the semi-darkness. As a result, the burden of entertainment was forced on the Boise Municipal band and the Salt Lake Opera quintet, assisted by a j ry good pyrotechnic display. The efforts of Director Fleharty and his band were well received by ths .■mall audience. The Salt Lake Quin tet proved' pleasing and was forced to give two encores before the appre ciative crowd could be satisfied. The fireworks were unusually good and unique. A sham battle between two Illuminated battleships being the outstanding feature. Secretary Hendershot promises suf ficient light for the program this even ing.

In HearRt's Magazine for October. Ches terton attempts to solve some of these pressing problems. Hla keen, analy tical mind goes straight to the root of the trouble and he says some very pertinent things which every thought ful American will do well to ponder.
