A GREAT FAIR,
The Minnesota state fair will this
year be an exposition to which the
people of the state can look forward
with expectation and pride. The
agricultural society, ever since Its re
organization upon a firm financial
basis, with the enthusiastic support
of the whole commonwealth behind
it, has beeu gathering strength for
the great efforts that it is now pre
pared to make in order to achieve a
success that shall be werthy of the
greatest commonwealth of the North
west. This year for the first time the
public will get some appreciation of
what the state fair is and what it is to
be. The management has busied it
self with preparations for an enter
tainment that shall surpass anything
yet seen. The long list of attractions
need not be repeated here. The agri
cultural display, which is always the
easiest to raise to excellence, will this
season be unsurpassed. From far
and near ttie great stock exhibit,
which has already become a distinc
tive feature of Minnesota's display, is
gathering. It is safe to say that no
where in the country can there be
found a more niaguiflcent collection
of blooded animals than will be gath
ered next month on the state fair
grounds. The merchants and busi
ness men of the cities have done their
part, and the main building collec
tions and the aggregated machinery
exhibit will be the best that the state
can atlord. A liberal premium list,
together with a careful arrangement
of attractions for the race track has
assured there a display of speed that
will astonish and delight the peonle,
who do not as yet know all that is in
store for them in this always popular
feature of the annual eutertainment.
Finally, the additions to the ordinary
programme in the shape of mimic
contests at arms *iul com petti vc drills
by the various militia companies of
the state will vary the monotony of
the ordinary routine, and offer a
novel entertainment to tiie thousands
who are awaiting anxiously the open
ing of the fair season.
All things have conspired together
this year to make unparalleled suc
cess a certainty. The people of Min
nesota are interested as they never
were before, while the fair manage
ment finds itself for the first time
able to act with the necessary free
dom and liberality. The half-heart
edness with which the old fairs were
conducted was inevitable. It is now
that the conductors of the enterprise
feel themselves free to plan and to act.
""he state fair is financially on a solid
basis.
1
has a splendid home, equi­
distant fro^ the twochiefcities of the
state, and readily accessible by rail
from every nook and corner of the
Northwrest. It has pass- the first
trial, when all resources had be de
voted to the mere provision of neces
sary buildings and othpr accommoda
tions. The splendid plant is all in
place and paid for, and revenue can
now be utilized entirely for the build
ing up of such an institution, so con
ducted, as shall become famous not
only throughout the Northwest, but
the country over. The people of the
state appreciate this, while they also
begin to feel strongly the pride which
is rightfully theirs in an institution
so strong and* splendid. Npthing is
more marked than the kind!y appre
ciation which shows itself iri every
utterance of the people of Minnesota,
and in every notice of the state press
of the exhibition that is about to open.
They recognise that this no local af
fair, but the property and creation of
the commonwealth, by whom it has
been and is to be still farthor built up,
and to whom will accrue the honor
and profit that follow it. Every dol
lar which they contribute to its re
sources Is now assured of being re
turned to them, by being devoted to
the extension of this state display, to
the provision of new accessories, the
addition of new features, and the
beautification of grounds which have
no superior in the United States.
This is the course of public sentiment
and, in obedience to it, the people are
coming to the fair by thousands. For
the first time a railroad rate has been
made s^liberal that every visitor will
save, by taking advantage of it, many
times as much as it will cost to take
in all the attractions of the fair. Min
nesota is heartily united and enthusi
astic behind the exhibition which
bears, and now worthily bears her
name. In the concurrence of all these
favorable conditions are to be found
the reasons why- the entertainment
offered to the public in September
will prove itself in every way worthy
of the name and reputation oj & great
fair.—Pioneer Press.
A few weeks ago a report came from
Virginia that bloody flux was epi
demic in Amherst, Roanoke, Bedford
and Botetourt counties. The same
day it was received, Chamberlain &
Co., of Des Moines, Iowa, sent a bot
tle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy to each of the
140 post offices in the four counties
with the request that it be given to
some family afflicted with the dis
ease. Since then they have received
several letters from there, the follow
ing is a copy of one of them: Chest
nut, Amherst Co., Va., Aug. 7,1887.
Messrs. Chamberlain & Co.: I re
ceived the bottle of Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Rem
edy sent me and it has been used
with the greatest success. I shall
still endeavor to let such a valuable
remedy as yours be known. Two
children died with bloody flux, almost
in this immediate vicinity, not long
since, and had your remedy been
known then, it would probably have
sayed their lives. Messrs. William
Btrother A Son, wholesale druggists,
atLynehburg, are selling a great deal
of your remedy. Please accept thanks
for the bottle sent me, and rest as
sured that I will use it whenever
needed. I am yours very truly and
gratefully, P. E. LAVENDEB, P. M.

General Logan's Great Work.
A beautifully bound and artistically
illustrated volume, bearing the title
"The Volunteer Soldier of America,"
comes to us from the publishing house
of 11. S. Peale Co., Chicago. The
public has been anxiously awaiting
this work from the brain and hand, ot
the brave soldier who is sleeping, in
mortality, but awake in immortality
—General John A. Logan. Its author
ship alone would invest it with an lin
dying interest, but, aside from this,
his fitness for treating the subject
gives the volume a practical -value
hardly to be estimated. He was an
experienced military man who had
carefully and
sntellig«utly
studied the
military system of the country and
when, in convincing language, and
by indisputable facts, he demonstrates
the need of reform, the country will
do well to heed his words. General
Logan speaks emphatically, but with
out prejudice or bitterness, and no
one can read this, his greatest work,
without feeling that It has been writ
ten from first to last as a duty, owed
to a nation which had crowned him
as one ot its greatest soldiers and
statesmen.
"The Volunteer SoMipr" jgnota
'•war book" in the common ^meaning
of the term neither is it a life of
Logan—although tlia biographical
memoir of the author, which pre
cedes the body of the book, is, with
out doubtj the best short biography of
the illustrious volunteer leader that
has ever been writtsn, containing
many facts and incidents in his ca
reer never before published and the
General's Military Reminiscences, it
must be admitted by all, form a most
valuable contribution to the history
of the great civil strife.
It is the only connected history of
the volunteer service of America that
has ever been written the first and
only great attempt to perpetuate the
glorious achievements of the Ameri
can citiien soldiery, and to give to
the volunteer soldier and sailor that
honor and placs in history which are
so justly their due. Logan was never
more eloquent than when reciting the
deeds or advocating the rights of bi«
comrades in arms. In this work he
demands justice for the defenders of
the American Republic, and shows
that the safety and permanence of
out free institutions depend upon the
strong arms and loyal hearts of her
citizen soldiers. The handsomely
printed pages of the book abound
with thrilling descriptions of the hero
Ism of individuals, companies, regi
ments, divisions and corps. Much of
it reads like a romance.
The work is copyrighted by Mrs
Logan, who receives two-thirds of the
gross profits. The first edition, the
Eausted,
ublishers' state, has already been ex
but others are under way.
"The Volunteer Soldier" is a large
octavo volume of over seven hundred
pages, including General Logan's
military reminiscences from his pri
yate journal, now published for the
first time. The book is beautifully
bound, and the artistlo engravings
and clear letter-press make It the
handsomest publication which has
reaehed our book-table for some time

English railroads do the major por
tion of their own carting, collecting
and delivering freight at the freight
ers' doors. One ot the largest com
panies, the Midland, have in constant
employment no fewer than 3,200
horses and of these 1,000 are located
in London. Some of these horses are,
however, employed in switching cars,
at which business a neavy horse
weighing about 2,000 lb. can do good
service. They soon become very ex
pert, and start the car
by
standing
with the trace chain slack^and then,
without moving their feet, throw
their shoulders forward, when their
weight starts the car.
They
also learn
to judge when the car has acquired
sufficient speed, and step aside with

CATCHING THE BOAT.
AN EVERY DAY SCENE AT A NEW
YORK PIER.
Bustle, Confusion and Hurry #ust Bef«r*
the Boat Leave* Tardy Faaaongora
Who Don't Want to Bereft Behind.
A Little Too Lite.
It was a sultry afternoon when a re
porter was walking slowly tip West
street, wondering what could induce any
body to do anything such weather and
wishing that something would happen to
revive his spirits, which were slowly
drooping under the burning rays of the
July sun, when the loud clanging of a
Bteamboat bell made him resolve to watch
the departure of those more fortunate
than himself, even if he could not go with
them to New England, whither the boat
was bound.
All was bustle and confusion at the pier.
Trunks and boxes of all sizes and kinds
were being hurried on board the steamer
as she impatiently churned the muddy
water into a mass of white foam and
quivered in every beam as she strained at
the great ropes which bound her firmly to
the wharf. People were hurrying ou and
oft as the [reporter stood near the gaug
plank and watched the ever changing
scene.
Judging from the bustle and fuss in
progress one would think that all New
York was going on the boat. In fact,
a larger number than usual was
going on board, for every one
seemed anxious to exchange the hot, sti
fling aft: of the city for the cool, fresh coun
try breezes. Here comes a typical Yan
kee, long legged and loose boned, tightly
clutching a worn grip sack with one hand
and wiping his perspiring face with the
other as he settled down front tfce half
canter in which he had been indulging into
a slow walk, and ejaculated:
Wall, I declare! I've got the boat
after all." He was going back to "Vio
t'ry," he explained to the reporter, and
had come down to see his brother, who
"was to work in a notion house.' He
had decided that New York was "a big
place."
OVLY A PLAKK.
"ah aboard!" shouts the captain, and
the plank for the baggage is removed,
leaving only the narrow plank for passen
gers. Just at that moment a cab is hur
riedly driven up on the pier, and a young
man clad In a tennis suit and grasping a
big cane and a small bundle jumps out
and proceeds to dance excitedly before the
door of the carriage, while he called out
to the captain, "Stop her a minute!"
"Well, hurry up! don't stand there in
front of the door,'' yells back the captain
good naturedly, and the youth steps aside
far enough to allow two young girls with
their arms full of bundles to alight.
"Here comes two more," shemts the
agent, as two women come rushing fran
tically down the pier, waving their pack
ages in the air, just as the gang plank
was dangling in mid air. Again it was
lowered, and upon it the women rushed,»
only to stop in the middle of it while one
informed the captain that her ^husband
hadn't come yet, and the other anted to
know whether her trunk ha£ been checked
"clear through to Boston," and who had
the check. Just then the husband ap
peared in the distance, meandering along
toward the boat as if he had the whole
day before him. At last he seemed to
understand the signals that were frantic
ally made to him, and then he showed
that he could run. He lost his hat, but
he got there just in time. The captain
told the woman that the trunk was
1
slowly away.—yeWjYork Tribune.
'all
right," and again the plank was lifted.
"Two more," the ery is again raised, as
a man with a big basket and a woman
with a baby were seen indulging in a eort
of "hip hip" race along West street, half
a block away. But it was too late, for the
ropes had been cast off and the boat, free
from all restraint, quickly glided out from
her slip into the stream as though she
were glad to leave her hot home for the
cooler waters of the sound. As the re
porter stood watching the retreating vessel
the man and woman came up to the spot,
the woman one length ahead and both en
tirely out of breath. They watched the
boat a moment and then turned and looked
reproachfully at each other and walked

Dirt as a Great Healer.
I very much doubt if anybody with
Yankee blood in his veins can ever become
the society dawdler our novelists are so
fond of serving up in black an"d white for
the delectation of their pessimist readers
—such as Howells and James so aptly
sketch with a free hand but I hare an
impression that a six months' apprentice
ship to farm life would eradicate the dis
ease even in its worst stages. I am a be
liever in the Antfean theory, that m.eu
gain strength by their contact with the
earth. Dirt is a great healer, a great
health giver, as many a child knows as he
recalls his pie making days. It is the
base of any great democracy and an ad
mirable leveler of class distinctions. This
repugnance on the part of some people
own their plebeian ancestry is a human
weakness which honest people despise aad
avoid for if there is anything of which au
American ought "to be proud it is his
democratic descent, his plebeian independ
ence. One's forefathers may not hare
been voyagers in the Mayflower, or have
stood among the "embattled fanners" or
Concord, or have had a hand in the draft
ing of the constitution but I have no
doubt that in some humble way they
served the common cause. It is enough
to be of American birth in these days of
growing civilization.—Sylvester's "Prose
Pastorals.''
A Novel Japanese Clab.
A new kind of benefit club has just been
started at Yeddo by a number of enter
prising young Japanese, who are deter
mined, if possible, to see the western land
from which come the fashions and no
tions that are so completely revolutionizt
ing Japan. The club is called the Yoko
Haiska, and the members are all expected
to pay a monthly subscription of about a
guinea to a special fund under the man*
agement of the club committee. And
every year this fund is used up in the fol
lowing way: The names of three mem
bers of the club are chosen by lot, and to
the first of these is accorded the privilege
of going to pass ten years in Europe at
the expense of the fund, for the second a
trip of five years is arranged and paid for,
while the third prize consists of the neces
sary traveling expenses for one year's visit
to Europe. According to recent accounts,

An Offended Author's Atonement.
Just before Mortimer Collins' death he
happened in some way to run counter to
the prejudices of one of the most brilliant
and rugged of men of letters, with whom
he was personally acquainted. His sin
brought upon his head—in The Athe
naeum or Notes and Queries, I think—a
very lava flood of scathing denunciation
from the offended Olympian. Bofore he
had time to answer, Mortimer Collins was
dead. Three years later, when his widow
was in trouble at Islsworth and saw no
one, her little maid refused to unlock the
gate to a white haired burly stranger.
Standing outside, he shyly murmured
something about a "friend of Edmund
Yates." This acted like magic, as many
were the packets and letters the girl had
posted to that address, and he was shown
in, "Mrs, Mortimer Collins, I think?"
"Yes." "God bless you. Take this."
He thrust a roll of bills into her hand,
and was off in his carriage again without
another word, leaving her to look blankly
after him. It was a little time before she
learned that her visitor was Charles
Reade, and that the timely kindness was
his atonement for his haste. He kept the
kindness up, and one of the first literary
boarders who came to lighten Frances
Collins' burdens at her Eastburne house
was Charles Reade. It was not long be
fore his death.—Temple Bar.
ENJOY LIFE.
What a truly beautiful world we
ltveln! Nature gives us grnndeur of
mountains, glens aud oceans, and
thousands ot means of enjoyment.
We can desire no better when ill per
fect health but how ofteu do the
majority of people feel like giving it
up disheartened, discouraged and
worn out with disease, when there is
no occasion for tills feeling, as every
sufferer can easily obtain satisfactory
proof, that Green's August Flower,
will make them free from disease, as
when born. Dyspepsia and Liver
Complaint are the direct causes of
seventy-five per cent, of such mala
dies as Biliousness, Indigestion, Sick
Headache, Costiveness, Nervous Pros
tration, Dizziness of the Head, Pal
pitation of (lie Heart, and other dis
tressing symptoms. Three doses of
August Flower will prove its wonder
ful effect. Sample bottles, 10 cents.

Sarah Bernhardt'* Month.
Bernhardt has naturally an ugly mouth,
large aud with thin, pallid, formless hps.
To rectify this she begins on the lower
lip, paints a thin red line from the corner,
widening it toward the iniddlo and curv
ing again into the other corner. This
makes the mouth look much smaller and
the upper lip full and rosier. The upper
lip Is treated in the same way, only she
makes two sharp curves ou each side off
*he center, which gives the proper Cupid's
bow shape. The result is that her rosy
mouth is redueed in apparent size, and
looks like the bride's whose "hps were
red, and one was thin," and she looks five
years younger than she does without this
little adventitious aid ^o her beauty.—
