The thirteenth annual meeting of the Missouri Slate Fair closed yester day evening. Summing up the whole exhibition, it may be pronounced a gratifying success.

The exhibits were fir.-t class, and the speed ring fareurpasBgd that of any previous season. The of ficers in every capacity aquiited them selves in an admirable manner.

The second race, 2:30 class, for 81.000 purse, best three in in five in harness waa more exciting than the first race. Horses alternately won heats causing much betting at random. The first heat was very even, Cross man winning by a length. The second heat was led by Lida D. from the pole to the half, when she lost ground, letting Crossman and Black Prince slip by, allowing the latter to win the heat by a neck. Black Prince led the third heat, and won, leaving the others about six lengths behind. Crewman after a hard fight won sec ond place, and May Quisne third. In the fourth Crossman led, but was soon passed by Chapan. Floyd B gained firat place at the last quarter and won by a neck.

Hardly had the day opened-yester-Ihv before the exhibitor b?gau to pack up their goods and the horse men their sulkies, preparatory to moving to their next stmd or home as the case nny be. This w-s doae with a good feeling toward all. The dny jogged aling with no in terruption and with everyoua s itis fied. It was late last night before those who intended to leave, depart ed. At that dismal hour uo sound could be heard, save the t-teady tread of the watchmen who bad remained behind to guard the straggling nrii cles, to be picked up on the ttreturn trip. The fortuce tellers and reJ lemonade sellers were gone. The side shows were broken up and the Albino woman had removeJ her wig and the bearded lady h?r whi-kers. The "red and black" were no more, and in the sime condition, wat the "star green." No horse and sulky were visible on the track: the grand stand was va- ca'eJ; the judges tami wore" a de- erted look while around the directors and press stands were no sizns of human existenc; in fact all was still and the entire grounds wrapped in tne gloom. The thirteenth annual meeting of the Missouri estate fair was at an end. One of the most attractive displays in the art hall is that of the Central Busintes College, which under the management of Prof. C. W. Robbies, aa reached a place among tne euu cational establishments of the country second to none. Indeed, i siay truly be said of this col logo that its gradu ates can be found all over the United States occupying places of trust and confidence, and that lis Instruction is so thorough in its nature that not one dissatisfied student has ever entered a complaint. When it is consider d that the number ot these students nas lone azo passed from hundreds into thousands, the fact here stated is re markable, to say the least, la con nection with the business training school of the college proper, short hand and penmanship departments are specially provided and thorough instruction is assured to each and every pupil. The college is always open to pupu s and they are taken by the month, it desired, so that the pupil may be thoroughly sat isfied that the school has not been mis represented, before taking the whole course. The dismay or pupils work has been arranged under the careful man agement of Prof. Robbins and a corns ot able assistants have carried out his ideas to a finish which excites the ad miration ot all. lne entire space in the eastern nort of the art hail is covered with pen work, both plain ...... and ornamental, and art critics declare that the pen drawings cannot ne ex celled by the best engravings on steel. A special piece which has won praise from all who have seen it, is group of Arabs, who, upon fleet cours ers are dashing through a mounuin defile. The lines are shaded to the delicate nicetv of an engraving, and the finish is that of an artists proof. Another fine piece of pen work repre sents a Bengal lion, the magnificent mane, tail and claws being per fect. In addition to the many special pieces, there are large frames filled with plain and ornamental card work, finely executed pen strokes representing birds, etc Indeel it is difficult to imagine anything finer than the display made liy the Central Business College, because it is so com' plete in all its details and its special features so well arranged. Thursday and Friday rapid calcula tors displayed the care with which in struction has been given in the mathe matical department and as the diffi cult and intricate problems were worked into a correct result in about the space of time which is necessary to strike a telegraph key, the crowd ot interested spectators grew enthusiastic and with one accord admitted that mathematical calculation had been re duced not only to an art but a fine art and one which would have made the Qld-'irae pedagogue turn pale with affright. Tne lightning es calators, it should be remem bered, are thorough mathmeti cians tnd in the great commercial world where now only such knowledgd is available, there is always room anil always a demand for them which makes it most desirable for all to emulate. No young man can a fiord to inifs such instruction and indeed no young mau who studies self interest will neglect it. Rmeniber that com petition makes it necessary that a business man should n t be h uidi cipped in any way and at once take a course in the business training d;part ment of the Central B isiuess College, t''e most complete c dlege in " the United State. A CREDIT TO THE COMMUNITY. Among the disp'ays at the fair Jnt week, that olJohn Stark & Sons, de serve special mention, as they had without any duibt the highest grade and finest pianos ever exhibited at any fair ever held in Sedalia or Central Missouri. Among their exhibits could be seen the justly popular and cele brated pianos of George Steele & Co., Mason & Humlin and the Bradbury. The beautiful tone and fine workmtn chip of these pitnoi culled forth many flattering remarks from the thous nds who had the pleasure if seeing them Messrs. Starke & Sons were well re paid for their labors in miking the ifisp'ay as they sold several very fine pianos, some to be shipped to the sur rounding towns. No wonder this firm are so popular and command the con fidence of the public, fur they, have b?en doing a successful business in Sedalia for over twelve years and in all that time every customer who his purchased of them has been a frind and workt r for the firm. Their uni form, courteous treatment, reliability and low price? to ail, has enlarged their silta and territory until their j shipments aod sales extend over the largest territory ever covered by any firm in this city. It is scarcely neces sary to state that they got the blue ribbon for their beautiful exhibit. At their store room 505, Ohio street, can be found a fu'.i line of everything pertaining to the musical lice. All orders from, the surrounding towns and country will receive prompt and careful attention. Write them for particulars. EAIRI-M. Ed O'R ar, of Saline county, took in the fair. The wheel of fortune did a land office business. The bind rendered excellent ser vice during the week. Blue Bell lowered her record from 2:24 to 2:17, yesterday. Ethel T, lowered her record from 2:37 to 2:32, yesterday. The police force at the grounds was sufficiently strong. Emmet Bouldin did excelent ser vice in the horse department. You could invest five cents at a peanut stand and draw out diamond so they a j. The press gang returns thanks to Mr. A. D. Fisher for a box of cigars yesterday afternoon. Prof. Spurway found a bunch of keys on the grounds. The owner can get the same at Hotel Benson. A. A. Walket, who was here at tending the fair, left for his home at Pleasant Oreen last night. Telegram, driven by Sam Fuller, made his first appearance in a gentle man 8 roadster race some years ago in Sedalia. It was reported this morning that eeveral parties were held up on the fairerounds Inday night. I he re port was not verified. There was ot course, some kicking amone the ladies concerning tne awards, but who ever heard ot a fair without it? Press Agent Thornton did the thing up brown last week, kvery precau tion was taken, by that gentleman, to add to the comfort of the press. But few ladies had places on the grand stand yesterday. Sedalia ladies are not exactly up to the races unless a crowd assures them that they are good. Mrs. Bettie Gentry, Dr. and Mrs. Fereuson. occupied seats in the di rectors' quarters, nearly every day ot the fair and enioved the races im mensely. Mrs. J. L. Holloway, who is the guest of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. K G. Learning, and' attended the fair. will return to her Arkansas home the last of this week. Mrs. D. T. Hartshorn and Mrs. E. A Challenge ! CARPET THIRD AND D. A. CLARKE, R. Marhn, who made snch a fiae dis play of jellies and preserved fruits, have now premiums for several years and are experts in caring for fruits. Miss Minnie Chppel of Kansas City, who was the gueat of Mr. C. E. Messerly, and attended the fair, left yesterdy for Mt Leonard where she will visit before returning home. W, E. Bud, R. G. Learning, Mrs. Mattie Brown, Mrs. T. B. Anderson, Miss Nellie Learning all deserve much Credit for unfailing courtesy and care they displayed in the art and tex'ile fabric department during the fair.

Liltle ex-.'itemeut was cause! yes terday evening when the driver ot Jim Wilkes was removed and W. H.

Jio., tne horse that won first money in tlia Z:M class consolation stake of Sl.lWU. is Wind and 11 vears old. This is the BPcnml season for the horse on the track, and he now has a record of 2:23A. He was driven by Mr. Fariah N. Lockland. who represents the Chicago Horseman, and C. L. Frost! who represents the J.entucjr.y o:oca farni. and who are able and courteous gentleman who have given their re spective journale fine reports of the races, wiuieave io-uj iui u.gg.uo ville, where they will be present at the fair. A man named Blinker from near California, Mo., bet on the wheel of fortune Thursday, and then went be hind the textile fabric hall, where he kicked himself until he absolutely cried. He was asked the cause of bis tears and then toll his tale of woe. He has lost elevan dollars and a quarter. Mrs. Powers, Mrs. Dakes and Mrs McFarlane three enterprising ladies who served meals f"r tpe benefit ot the First Methodist church deserve" much credit. They not only served good meals carefully and acceptably but served them for a very small sum. Thev estimate they lost upwards of 825,through the carelessness.or design nt numerous persons who failed to pay them during the rush Thursday. The wife of a well known physician remarked to a reporter that her hus band regretted his visit to the fair Friday since ha lost 85 by it. The reporter intent upon tne cniei attrac tions of the fair laughed and said, why did Dr. bet on the race or did he play the wheel of fortune? The physician's wife remembering that her busoand was a strict cnurcn mem- ber.bastened to correct the reporter by stating that it was neither the races or the wheel of fortune which had caused her husband to lose bis money, but a patient whom he had failed to see and who had called at his office during his adsence. The patient was in luck, however, and will prob ably not get well. The ait and textile fabric depart ments were not dismantled until this afternoon, many of the exhibitors kindly allowing their displays to be viewed by all visitors who had not before seen them. It is asserted by many that the fancy work this year . . ... ? i i exceeqea anyming ot me mnu seen 1 Hi All the manipulators of Cut Price, Discount, ''Going out of Business, ' ''Selling at Cost' and other sort of sales to produce'sueh fine bargains as we are offering six days in the week.

Mrs. E. Myers, Mrs. Wilson of Fort Scott, Kan.. Mrs. El Hurley, Mr?. John Walmsley and numerous others made displays which were beautiful in the extreme and which were of such care ful handiwork that the se'ections for premiums made by the committee was most difficult to make. It is 'to be hoped that no one will feel hurt at the selections, because much thought and care were required and no selec tion was made hastily.
