Dinner and supper are served each day
and this feature of tile fair has been well

Indicate that he is a farm hand, wandered
out Into the Mosquito creek bottoms, south
of town, Wednesday night and went to
sleep In a hayrick, where he was found
yesterday morning by some farmers, al
most frozen stiff. The police were notified,
and Chief TIbbtts and Deputy Marshal
Lauch drove out to the place.
When- they arrived there the farmers
had wrapped Ryan up in horse blankets
and were endeavoring to thaw him out.
Ryan was brought to the city Jail, where
after several hours he came to sufficiently
to be able to tell his name. He said he
had been visiting In Omaha for a few days
and that his home was In Salisbury, Mo.
He came to the Bluffs on Wednesday after
noon and visited a number of saloons, but
was unable to state how he came to wan
der to the bottoms. An empty pint bottle,
which had csntalned whisky, and 38 In
cash were found on him.
His fingers were badly frozen, but his
feet, which were encased In heavy woolen
socks and felt boots, escaped. When he
had thoroughly thawed cut, Ryan was

from entering on the tax books the assess
ments made against property owned by
himself and father, W. S. Mayne, for the
construction of the Pigeon Creek drainage
ditch. The county authorities are made
defendants In two separate suits.
W. 8. Mayne, who owns considerable
land In Garner and Carson townships, was
assessed something over ' 31,500, the com
missioners claiming that his property would
be benefited that amount by the construc
tion of the drainage ditch. This assess
ment, Mr. Mayne contends. Is wholly un
warranted, as his property Is located three
miles from the proposed ditch and cannot
possibly be benefited by it The further
claim Is made by Mr. Mayne that his land
at present has a sufficient and natural
drainage Into the Missouri river.
George II. Mayne was assessed 3375. The
proposed ditch will pass through his prop
erty, but he has not been awarded any
damages for the land which will be taken

DECIDES TO HOLD A FAIR NEXT YEAR
Board of Education to Be Asked to
Pay for Articles Stolen from Cloak

High School. '
(From a 8taff Correspondent)
DES MOINES, Dec., 10. (Special.) The
State Board of Agriculture today adopted
the recommendation of a special committee
on food adulteration, composed of ex-Governor
8. B. Packard and M. J. Wragg,
which included the draft of a bill that will
be pushed before the legislature next win
ter. The committee had been Instructed a
year ago to make an exhaustive report and
Investigation, and reported that there Is
great need for some law In Iowa that will
reach the matter of adulterations.
The bill creates the office, of state dairy
and food commissioner, and he succeeds
to all the duties and compensations now
pertaining to the dairy commissioner.
With the approval of the executive council
he may appoint assistants Who shall re
ceive 33 a day and expenses, and 3300 a
year Is added ta the present salary of the
dairy commissioner. An official chemist Is
to be appointed at $1,300 a year and lab
oratory and apparatus shall be furnished
him. The commissioner shall make rules
for carrying out this act and procure sam
ples of food offered for sale for examina
tion by the chemist. The certificate of the
chemist as to the contents of a substance
shall be prima facie evidence. The com
missioner shall have the facta certified to
any county attorney, who shall proceed to
orosccute for violations. The essential
c'auae of the bill Is:
No person by himself, his servant or
ri.nt nr as the servant or agent of any
other person, shall manufacture or Intro
duce into the state, or solicit or take op
ders for delivery, or sell, exchange, deliver
or have in his possession with intent to
sell, exchange, expose or offer for sale
or exchange any article of food which la
adulterated or mlsDranaea wunin me mw
Ins of this act. .

The part of the bill that Is, new and
somewhat novel and which It Is believed
will draw to the bill many supporters Is.
In the phrase "or solicit or take orders for
delivery," which will fasten the responsi
bility upon the agent who goes about dis
posing of goods that are not right. The
chief objection of the retail grocers of the
state has been that the penalties have ap
plied to the seller only, since the manu
facturer. If he lives in another state, can
not be reached. The word "food" Is de
fined In the bill to Include all articles used
as food, drink, confectionery or condiment
by men or domestic animals. "Misbranded
signifies bearing false statement as to in
gredlents, substances or quantity contained
In package offered for sale, or false state
ment as to the state or country where man

State Fair Next Year
The St&te Agricultural board this morn
ing proceeded to organise by the re-eleo-tlon
of the old officers, after which the
matter of having a state fair In Iowa In
1901 was taken up. There had been some
doubt In the minds of igm of the direc
tors as to whether or not there should be
a state fair in view of the nearness of
Des Moines to St. Louis and the fear that
the fair would not be sufficiently patron
Ised to make It pay. Secretary Simpson,
however, had been forehanded In the mat
ter and had written to nearly all the
leading exhibitors, especially of live stock,
asking them to stats positively whether
or not they would exhibit at the fair. He
had 100 letters from these exhibitors and
all but eleven of them stated positively
that they would exhibit and that they
desired to come again to a state fair,
despite the St. Louis exposition. This was
regarded as conclusive of the matter and
the board voted unanimously that a state
fair should be held next year and the datea
as fixed at the association of fairs were
adopted. The fair will begin August 19,
The fair board also named superintend'
