THE SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO, AUGUST 23. 1892. 3 1 IT WAS A. SUCCESS. The Thirteenth Annual Meeting of the Missouri State Fair Association Was Both Interesting and Well Attended. List of the Premiums Awarded and an Aceount of the Races. I he Kite-Minped Track Gives the Very Best Satis faction. men of am many MONDAY, AUGUST 15. Ou the fourth day of last April the first spadeful of dirt was thrown for the skite shaped track. From thst time uulil last Saturday night, in raiu and shine, the work had been unceasing. The task was herculean, invoicing the labor of hundreds of teams and the expenditure thousands of dollars. Besides the track iiself, there bail to be erected three mammoth rows of stalls, a grand stand to seat 6,000 peo pie and other building) aud feuces. Yesterday the peace of the Sabbath was broken by the sound of the saw and htmm?r,for the la3t pi ink had not been put in place nor the last mil driven. But the directors and (Lionel Seth Griffin have accomplished the work in a most admirable manner and the re suit is the finest track and the best grounds in Missouri. This morning the sun rose serenely and smiled benignantly upon Sedalia, Our lecent flirtation with the red planet Mars had not aroused the jeal ousy of the god ot day, and he gave token that the weather should be of standard quality on this occasion The advance visitors began to ar rive yesterday from various parts of the country. Some of them will make a pile in the pools; others are inter ested more or Jess in the stuck ; some are accompanied by freaks, which they show under canva3 ; others will set up little games ot chance and amusement; many will renew acquaintance with resident relatives who may happen to have a good pantry and a soft bed at night ; some are here at the head of a pair of giants and one enterprising in dividual is on hand with an ossified girl ; a man with two monkeys and brace of parrots will interest those in quest of zoological attractions; there could not well be a fair without a fakir and he is here in all his brass and ubiquity. The early train to-day brought in a large number of excursionists, who swelled the town crowds and made the opening scene one of greatactivity and promise. The first day of an ex hibition has long been regarded as a mere preliminary to the week, but the manner in which people began to come in at an early hour makes it plain that there is to be no "off" day. At nine o'clock the Sedalia Military band, arrayed in their immaculate Marine uniforms, appeared upon the streets and in melodious notes sounded the signal for the opening of the thirteenth annual meeting of the Missouri State Fair Association. The shining sun and the echoing invita tion from the silver horns sent a thrill of inspiration and pleasure through the city, and Sedalia's carnival exhi bition had begun for all who choose to see the grandest display and great est racing in the history of Missouri. AT THE GROUNDS. This is childrens' day, when the little ones are admitted free and given the liberty of the park. Their pretty summer attire, nappy races and romp ing ways add cheerfulness and gayety to the scene. They looked in at the big bulls, the beautiful Jerseys, the lazy swine, the fleecy flocks of sheep, and at the fine horses on the kite shaped track. They got five dollars worth of amusement and education all at the expense of the courteous fair directors. God bless the girls and boys! Some of the latter, no doubt, will have a kite-shaped tracK ana a two-minute norse ot their own before many years have built beards on their sunny faces. STOCK DISPLAYS. The exhibition of stock this year bids fair to be as good as that of last year, though it has not yet all arrived.

The manufacturing hall has once more been converted into a Textile and display hill and for over a week large corps of men, under ths direc tion of that able gentleman R. G. Learning, has worked at the decora tions. All the columns have been wound with red white and blue bunt ing. At the north end wide strips of bunting cover the 'haunting space' which used to offend the artistic eye, and large banners have been hung wherever color and drapery were needed. The displav which was formerly made in the large dining room of the hotel have all been located in this hall and to-day it presented a busy and interesting scene as the dis plays were being placed. In the dif ferent classes in this department there are not as many articles as f ormerly,but those already being arranged promise rich results and in textile fabric?, em broideries and fancy work there is everything to please the ladies, espe cially, and nothing to offend. Indeed the conveninet arrangement of the shelving, etc., for this class of work is especially worthy of note, and ladies who nave not already done so, should true that the work of the ladies of Ss-! has also made an entry for the prize', , ..- - , ... , dalia is "unexceptional," as was to-day; cup, offered byaSdilia jewe'er for breZ' th,s "&. the third remarked.and that innate pi ide which the best three plates of apples. ay the great Missouri i-tate lair is lies within the feminine heart, should prompt them to not hide their "light under a bushel but permit them to bring forth their cherished pieces of handiwork just for the satisfaction of showing strangers what they can do mid bo.v they have done it.

It is no longer an experiment an unsolved problem, for it has been thoroughly tested and has given absolute and abundant satisfac tion The weather opened out lovely again this morning. Not a cloud ob scured the blue serenity of the sky and a pleasant bretze was wafted through the grand stand. Many people congregated there early in the dav to see the horses speed arouud the track. These exhi bitions ot pacing aud trotting were well-nigh as interesting as the regular races where records and big purses are at stake, and where a horse has to "git thar, Eli," in order to make ex penses. HORTICULTURAL DISPLAY. One of the finest displays which the entire fair affords is that made by the Pettis County Horticultural Society. Fifty-seven plates of apples alone are shown beside seven of pears, fourteen of grapes, and a miscellaneous collect ion of apples.
