Special te > The News : The annual fair of the Madison Agricultural Society opens today , to continue for four days. The ofllcers and members of the society Imvo been busy fen- some time past In preparing for the event and are satis fied that the grounds and the track and buildings are In better shape than ever , and are likewise confident that the premium list and race program \ will call out a better exhibit e > f agri cultural products and fast heirsos than ever before In the history of the asso ciation. It Is probable that the greater portion tion of today will bo taken up In re cording entries , placing exhibits and other preliminary work , although much of this has been done during the past several days , and today's visitors will find that the fair on this first day is well worthy of your attention. A la dles' room Is one of the lately aelded conveniences for the comfort of the women and children who will attend. The buildings are In first class repair and the track Is In excellent condition , so that nothing remains hut for the weather to he right to make the fair one of the most enjoyable and larg est attended of any heretofore , held. Many concessions have been granted that will provide side attractions , and the management has arranged with the Booth Bros. ' company of Kansas City to give free attractions on each day of the fair. This company's pro gram Includes first class , up-to-date features and those who attend will find enjoyable entertainment during the 1 entire time of their visit. The speed program Is of great prom ise , with the best field of horses ever before entered , and the races will be speedy and hotly contested. Tomorrow will be a big day , and it is anticipated that the attendance will be largo , as assurances have been received that many are coming over from Norfolk , and the people from the country and other towns will help swell the crowd. The two following days will unquestionably bo good ones , with large crowds in attendance , all depending , of course , more or less on the weather , the present prospects for which are very encouraging. A feature of the entertainment to morrow will be the baseball game be tween Tilden and Newman Grove. The Tllden team has been making an ' excellent record this season , and is making unusual preparations for tills contest , with the enthusiastic support of the people of that town to back them , and there appears to be a de cided Inclination to favor them on the betting. Newman Grove also has a decided reputation as a gcxxl baseball town , and It may be depended on that no effort will he spared to take the game from Tilden. At all events the contest will bo a hard fought one and the merit of the players alone will decide cide the result. It will he one of the best games of the season In the county , beyond a doubt , and will serve to at tract many who would not come to see the fair alone. Excellent programs have also been prepared for Thursday and Friday and everything is promising for an excel lent fair and a great attendance. The fat , sleek stock that has been going Into the pens today , the magnificent exhibits of grains , vegetables and fruits that are being placed , the bean tiful art work that Is being artistically displayed , and the excellent array ot machinery , and other manufactures are combining to form an exhibit that will astonish even those who fully realize the capacity of the county , itf people ami the soil. No one can afford to miss it , and It will be of especial In terest to strangers , many of whom are expected. Make Tomorrow Norfolk Day. A movement is on foot , which Is be Ing urged by Mayor Hazen , to have as many Norfolk people as possible at tend the county fair at Madison on Wednesday of this week , and it is par tlcularly desired that the people of the city , having no choice as to the elate on which they will attend , should go down to the county seat on that day. There will bo a hall game be tween Newman Grove and Tllden teams for a purse of $100 and other special amusements. It has not been set aside as Norfolk day , hut It will certainly become that if a few moro people make up their minds to join the crowd that has already planned to attend. WEDNESDAY WRINKLES. Mrs. I. Powers Is numbered among the sick today. W. M. Robertson went to Inman yesterday on business. Judge Douglas Cones of Plerco was a city visitor this morning. Dr. C. W. P. Marquardt helped swell ! the crowd that attended the fair at Madison today. Fry's restaurant has been recently repapered and Is to bo repainted and otherwise Improved. Miss Hattlo Moyhow , of Battle reek came to Norfolk today. She met her mother will take charge of the Mrs. Younger boarding house : iexl week. Mr. and Mrs. Obed Hnnsch expect lo inovo Into the beautiful new homo mo mlle west eif the cly ( , within a tow days. The papering Is Just being completed. J. C.

The plasterers are working on the Mncy building and the pipes are bo ng placed for gas which will light each room. The work of finishing will soon be undertaken so that the build- ng may bo occupied before cold weather opens. Elmer Hardy was about as proud as any boy In town yesterday morn ing when ho came up from the' river ivlth a four-pound catfish swinging along at his side , and his achievement s one that Is envied by local fisher men e > f greater experience In pisca torial pursuits. There was no frost In this sectlem of the state last night , although the atmosphere became quite chilly be fore morning. The fe > recast feir te > - night Is that there will bo frost In the western and central portions of the state. Let there be no mistake em the part of the weather In overstepping - ping the government man's en-dors. Norfe > lk Is east eif the central portion. The walls of the st-cond story of the United States court house are growing and some realization e > f heiw the building will le > ok when completed Is now possible. The pressed brick wall , offset by the trimmings of stone are making a very pretty effect , and those who have been watching the growth eif the structure are more than satisfied that It will bo a very hand some and substantial ornament to the city. TRIP AROUND THE WORLD , Novel Entertainment Given by the Ladies of Trinity Episcopal Church Last Evening. [ From AVednesday's Dally. ] Something now In the way of church entertainments was given last evenIng - Ing by the ladles of the Episcopal church. It is called "The Trip Around the World. " and while the term Is rather broad , It Is perhaps as nearly correct as anything. The Episcopal church served as the starting pe > int for the journey and at this depot tick ets were purchased , "Good feir erne trip around the world , .Including meals. " Fortified with one of these paste boards the traveler te > ok one ef the trains ( carriages ) which left every few minutes during the hours from 5 to 9 o'clock. The first stop was mailo at Boston ( residence of E. P. Weath- erby. ) The hewse was attractively decoratcel In golden rail , potteel plants and llenvers , while a music box elis- coursed such classical airs as are sup posed to tickle the ears of true Bos- temlans. Drown bread and baked beans were served by the ladles in charge in a manner that would do credit to the shade of Bunker Hill. The tewrist then jemrneyed to Ger many and put up at the Zumkaiserhof of mine host Tappert. German Hags and colors , black , white and rod , fur nlshed the foundation for doceiratlve features , while lasses in native ce tunic , wooden shoes and all , served Wienerwursts , potato salad , sand wlches ami coffee. A pretty fraulein in costume snng Deutsch semgs te > her own accompaniment em the zither. Germany was such an Interesting place that the travelers were loth to leave It. and hero was the largest crowd all the time. The next stop was In Japan ( resl elenco of Mrs. Desmond ) . Japanese lanterns oxtoneled far out over the lawn , and as the traveler stopped In side the door ho was greeted with a picture sot In highly colored umbrel las , fans and subdued lights , and was Invited to a seat on a cushion while he was served with tea and wafers by pretty Japanese girls In native ap parel. The tourist was now Hearing the end of his journey and he was wel comed to the States at the White House in Washington ( residence of W. N. Huso ) by the president anil family , members of the cabinet ami other official dignitaries , being In troduced by the president's private secretary. The decorations were na tional flags and colors , a bank of the president's choicest flowers covering the mantel. The mandolin club rep resented the marine band and fur nished delightful music during the evening. Sherbet and cake were served and during the later hours of the entertainment there was some dancing on the porch. The ladles feel well pleased over their entertainment , which seemed to bo a success , both socially and fi nancially , having cleared $01.50 after all expenses wore paid. The money Is to bo used In putting a furnace In the church. It cost 25 cents to take the trip. They feel under especial obligations to liverymen of the city , to Otto Tapport and to the members of the mandolin club , Paul Slsson , Ira Hull , Charllo Ahlman and K. W. Barnes for assistance In giving their entertainment. Result of Experiments Made by the Nebraska University. FINDINGS TO AID THE GROWER. Deep Cultivation Aids Yield Weeds In Field Positively Injurious to the Crop Home Grown Seeds are Tried With Good Results. ( From WeilncHilny'H Dully. ) Professor T. L. Iyon ef the No- iraska oxporlmunt station glveis the following digest ef a bulletin recently ssued from the station regarding the year's experiments In boot culture conducted at Ames : The co-operative. ' sugar beet export- nental work upon the farm of tht > Standard Cattle company at Ames , luring the season e > f 11102 , was In part i continuation ef pro views work whore conclusive results had neit boon ob tained , and In part a test eif methods > f culture and combating ellseaso that hail not been previously under Inves- tlgatlon. All the work was laid emt with a view to solving problems In which the fanner e > r beet grower was particularly Interesteel. As In provl- > us years , the liberality e > f the Cattle company maele It possible to carry on the work em an extensive scale , mil over 200 acres eif selected land was used for the experiments. Most if the weirk was ceinduc'ted upon what would commonly be termed a deep , friable lemin , very uniform In phys ical character and fertility. This almost - most absolute uniformity of the soil upon the Holds made It possible to use very much larger plats than weiuld ordinarily he admissible with out danger e > f varying the conditions. In a test of twenty odd varieties eif sugar beets , the results from home" grown seed compared very favorably with these from the Impeirtoel , seel , which showed quite wide variations. The difference In this , as we-11 as In former tests , seems tei indicate that the eiuallty eif the seed is more Im portant than the variety. An application of farmyard manure e > f 22 terns per acre seemed te > have nei effect upem the quality eif the sugar beets , nor upon the1 yield per acre , but in the latter respect this year's results differ from those of previews years. The use e > f salt as a fertlli/.or , if it had any effect. Improved the quality of the hoots produced but had ne > ef fect upon the susceptihllty te > ellsease. A comparison e > f early and late1 planting eif sugar beets was decidedly in favor eif early planting. A comparison of different depths eif horse-cultivation of sugar be > efs was In faveir eif rather eleop cultiva tion. It should bo remembered , how ever , that the seasem of 1M)2 ! was much wetter and cooler than normal. Experiments in previous years fav ored cultivatlem abewt three inches deep. The yield of sugar beets was very conslelcr < ibly increased by hand-hew ing when the beets were femr to five- inches high. The presence of weeds in sugar beet fields very materially decreased the yield and sugar contents of the beets. Breaking off a part of the leaves of Atigar hoots at "laying by" time did not injuriously affect the yield eir quality of the crop. Beets treate-d in this way wore less affected by "leaf spot" disease than these neit so treated. Continuing the cultivation eif sugar beets after the leaves were full grown considerably Increased the yield per aero. THURSDAY TIDINGS. Walter Vail and Lawrence Doyl are taking In the races at Maelison today. J. L. Hershelser , who went te > Idaho with S. L. Gardner , is still enjoying his hunting trip. W. G.

One More Blej Day of the Event Good Undue , Evcnto Yesterday After noon Newman Grove Defeated Tllden Fans. I Ftoin Tlinrmliiv'H Dully. ] Madison , Neb. , Kepi. 10. Special to The News : Next to ( ho llual day of ( he Madison county fair has passed off smoothly and the prospects for a mammoth attendance tomorrow arc' very good. The grounds are crowded with sightseers from all directionsj and ( hey are well pleased with the exhibitions. With a perfectly clear iiky today the weather has been proplluoiis ex cepting a strong south wind which has whipped dust about the grounds * to some extent. The track Is In good shape and ( ho racing has a good gal lery. The ball game promises to be as Interesting as that of yesterday when Newman Grove won a shut-out over Tllden. Tim truck events scheduled for to day are as follows : 11:10 : class trot or pace , for U(0 ; ( ( rotters or 2-l5 : pacers ; purse $100.lit. ( , ! :25 : class trot or pace , for 2:25 : trotters or 2-l5 : pacers ; purse f 125.00. Half mile running race for purse of $ no.oo. llesldes these races a special has been made up with the following en tries : Lilly 1) . , Nebraska lloiirbon , Ionia and Teddy Brunswick. The running race scheduled for yen- terday as well as the mm for today will he started , and both are tilled. The races scheduled for tomorrow are : Free for all trot 'or pace ; purse $20.00. Half mile running race free for all. catch weights ; purse $50.00. George Star , Ben Tell and Nona Parker have already been entered for tin ! free for all , and It promises tu be the best race during the fair. Yesterday's Card. Yesterday's program at the county fair , though hampered by the morning drl//lo at Madison , was carried out In an eminently satisfactory way as soon as the sky cleared. The track was somewhat heavy for the trotting events but the weather was just right for a hall game and the crowd had It's money's worth. But one race was on the card for I ho afternoon the 2:110 : trot which was taken by Teddy Brunswick. Min nie Wllkes , the speedy gray from Battle Creek , easily took second money. She stopped III better style than at Battle Creek , where she was off her feet largely. The others start- 1 were Lady Hush , Little Frit/ , Al bion Boy and Maggie Hoed. The ball game between Tllden and Newman Grove was a superb exhibi tion. Newman ( irovo won It , I ! to 0. All of the star players around this section of the stale were In the game and they played in pretty form. Hen derson , who lias been with the Omaha bunch , pitched the victory. His fieldIng - Ing was Immense. The same clubs are playing again today. Bncklen , a former Norfolk twirler , was playing with the Newman ( ! rove crowd. Teddy Brunswick , the fast little horse that broke the track record at Battle Creek , attracted considerable attention. Teddy's mark is 2:18V : | but the record was made since July 1 and he Is therefore allowed to start In the county fair races of the 2I5 : ! class. Ills owner worked a foxy game In yesterday's event. Teddy was not entered until the last minute. Others thought he would be out and went In to do things. Then Toddy was put in and everyone know it was a walk away. This little animal was bought a year ago out of a livery stable for $175. Ho was beaten In a 2:5 : ; : race not long after. Now his mark is 2:18Vi : and he has a snap because he Is per mitted to race with horses nearly twenty seconds slower. Unique Horse Owner. There is something unique In the way of a horse owner at the fair. She Is a woman and as good a judge of horse llcsh ( is is to be seen on the grounds. She owns the fast colt Governor , who Is entered In today's races. She fol lows the races with Governor , wagers on his speed , talks In the parlance of the turf and can pick the good points In speedy animals at a glance , "I am just daffy on one thing , " she declares , "and that Is a race horse. " Besides the races and the ball gamete to keep the spectators Interested , there Is something doing all the while at the fair. At the front of the grand stand Is a trapeze whore two clover acrobats perform between heats of the racing and on the grounds are a dozen different types of sideshows and midway novelties. HALF FAKE.

SAVED A WOMAN'S ' LIFE , George Davenport , Formerly of This City , Did It In a Peculiar and Effective Manner. IFieim TlMMHilay'H Dully. ) The Sioux City Journal rolatoa a story of how a Jest upon Geo. Daven port , well known In this city , saved a woman's life. The jesler was Detective M. 13. Follls and the life saved was that of Mrs. Mary ICIIen Foster , a well known character living In Sioux City , who was Intoxicated and under arrest for being connected with a robbery. The arrest was made at 7 o'clodc and for an hour afterward the woman walled and screamed and would not bo quieted. She was left alone In the woman's ward at police headquarters. The doors separating the ward from the olllcers downstairs were closed to shut off the sound of the woman's screams. The doors had not been closed long when George Davenport , lirothor of Chief of Police Davenport , entered the oillco. "Anything now ? " Mr. Davenport asked. Chief Davenport , Capt. Anderson and Sergeant Hichard wore busy and only Detective Follls had time to make rejdy. Ho remembered that young Mr. Davenport formerly lived at Norfolk , and he said : "Why , yes , George ; there's a lady from Norfolk upstairs and she Is in trouble. You'd bqtter go up and talk with her. " Young Mr. Davenport , not suspect ing any jest on the part of Follls , tripped upstairs to the woman's ward and hurried toward the iron door , ex pecting to see some old friend from his former home . But upon arriving at the door his eyes met a sight which caused him to shudder and draw back. ' Mrs. Foster had hung herself. A strip had been torn olT a sheet and one end was tied around the cross bar above the door opening Into the toilet room. The other end was tied around her neck. The strength of the woman was all gone and her arms hung limply by her side. Her face was turning black and her eyes were almost bursting from their sockets. Capt. Anelorson , who was In the J bath room , was called to and the cry < * was heard downstairs. Detective Fe > l- , . ! ; Us ran up and pooroel Intei the ward. ' j In a second he told young Davenport"j to hurry and get the keys to the cell ' . * elexir. Mr. Davenport almost jumped , , j the length eif the stairs on his way 1 tei the oillco and upon the back trip j ho fell ami throw the keys to the de- | ' I tectlve. The cell deieir was opencel .ami the Improvlscel rope was cut anil the body of ( he woman was laid upon the llexir. Then it was found that the strip of sheet was drawnso tightly around her neck that it had to bo cut with a knife. 4 FRUIT GROWERS MEET. v ' American Pomologlcal Society Gather w < In Boston for Three Days.
