It is derby day—a day which in his tory is as important as any holiday. It Is an ancient institution with the English-speaking people and on it no one pretends to do any work or Btudy, but gathers for a day of mirth and enjoyment. Such is the day in Spokane and the fair grounds are simply packed with a crowd of fun-seeking citizens from all over the state and surrounding communities. It is the great rac ing card for today that is furnish ing most of the interest. The grandstand represents one great floral creation with the variously colored apparel of the ladies. Seen from the Infield, it seems to appear as a great flower bed moved by the breeze. Today is derby day at the Inter state fair race track, and the an nouncement of entries and weights Includes the following: Mindanalo, 113; Salable, 112; Follow Me, 103; Tom Riley, 102; Young Marlow, 95; Autohood, 94; Anvil, 99; Pleasan ton, 105; Royalty. 106; Silver Heels, 100. »tie race is a mile and an eighth for $1000 purse. Over 7000 people paid their way in to the grounds yesterday and, although It did not quite equal the attendance of the day previous, the management is much gratified at the showing made. The main ex hibition building was crowded much of the day and at times the throng about the fruit exhibits was so large it was difficult to approach within sight of any particular ex hibit. Fruit and Vegetable Exhibit. Such an exhibit of products as is now at the Interstate fair has never been excelled locally for variety or excellence. Each exhibit contains fruits and vegetables and each Is presided over by an able represent ative of the section where the mm m m or mil) vMicora plaiis Senator E. M. Rands of .Clarke county, floor leader of the majority of the upper house in the last legislature, is In the city today on pleasure and business combined.

R. k N. railroad at Tekoa, reported hat someone relieved him of a ung dark brown coat while he was me the train coming to the city. J. Gless, who lives at the La erne house, stated that while he vus out of the room yesterday products are grown. A district which is being quite extensively boomed is Opportunity, four miles from this city. Joe Luckenbell and J. H. Gelvin are in charge of an excellent exhibit of fruits and vegetables from the sec tion and they are taking adnantage of the occasion to distribute de scriptive folders telling of the won ders of Opportunity. H. S. Simmons has charge of the Wenatchee exhibit. All the fruits and vegetables are nicely arranged and attract much attention from the people who pass by in crowds. Apples, grapes, peaches and bottled preserves are given prominence by Mr. Simmons and look like prize winners. Five Mile prairie is represented by vegetables which were grown without Irrigation. E. W. Graybill Is in charge and sets forth the fact of the products being grown with out irrigation in his talks to inter ested strangers. R. C. Jones Is On Hand. The familiar face and greeting of R. C. Jones of tne Riverside nurs ery are met again this year. For the past four years he has had an exhibit of fruits and vegetables and has always occupied the same cor ner In the main building. Moran prairie is represented by two exhibits —J. H. Ristaw's and R. Riesling's. In the latter honey is given a prominent feature and, although the fruits are attractive, the honey stands out as being par excellent. Biggest Apple In State. In the exhibit made by the Yaki ma County Horticultural union is seen what is probably the largest apple In the state of Washington. It 1b a Wolf River, grown by L. B. Klnyon, who produced the apple which took first prir.e as the largest apple in the world at the St. Louis exposition. Mr. Kinyon's effort this year reached the weight of two pounds and two ounces.

We know that real estate has moved up several notches, but tho plans of the rail road are not definitely known. We know of property which has been bonded by outside persons, presum ably In the interests of the railroad. On the expiration of some of the options, they have been renewed, In other cases no renewals have been made."

Yakima's ex hibit consists almost entirely of fruit, there being 128 boxes, of which 100 are apples, unduplicated, and the remainder about evenly di vided between peaches and pears, neatly arranged in checkerboard fashion as to colors. Seven kinds of Yakima grown nuts are to be seen. The exhibit is in charge of Edward Remy, L. B. Klnyon and W. N. Irish, as representatives ot the-horticultural union. The ex hibit is an improvement over that shown at the state fair. Stevens County Is There. Stevens county has as fine an exhibit of products as she has ever shown at the Interstate fair, and shows as large a variety as ever of the diversified possibilities in the "mother of counties." There is no monster pumpkin, such as that ex hibited last year and which was preserved and sent to the St. Louis exposition after astonishing the pa trons of two Washington fairs, but the exhibit of Jellies and canned fruits has probably never been equalled at an Interstate fair from any one section of the state. Not only is this part of the exhibit most attractive as to its cases and its condition as preserved fruits, but the size and quality of the fruit canned well shows forth what Stevens county can produce. The trays of apples, peaches and grapes are luscious. Corn, sweet, pope and dent, is well represented by high grade specimens. The exhibit is in charge of H. W. Sparks of Kettle Falls, who has special reference to the fruit display; Mrs. Charles Shearer, whose specialty is that of canned fruits and jellies, and Frank Habein, George Knapp and Charles Parliament, the last four named be ing residents of Colville and vlcin ity. One of the interesting feat ures of this exhibit is a map of the county showing the location of gov ernment lands within its borders. this morning that someone touched him for his open-face watch at the Shamrock saloon.
