TIlE COLUMBIA FAIR Premiums Awarded During the Ex hibition Which Closed Last Friday FIRST NAMED PREHIUM2d CERTIFICATE The closing of the Columbia Fair last Friday marked one of the most successful exhibitions of this kind ever held on the grounds of the association T average attendance was up to the highest point for several years while on Thursday the record breaking crowd was in evidence While we can- not accurately give the number present- l yet we ae safe in saying that fully 4four thousand persons were there There were hardy so many horses on exhibition as habeen seen some years but they were considerably above the average in merit and attractiveness and plenty to make good and interesting ahwsin nearly every ring The dis play of farm garden and orchard prod ucts were fine and clearly indicated that this section as a rule is under valued by many of our people who fail to produce the choice fruits etc The sheep and hog pens were not so full as common but the grade was fine and points to the great posibilities when proper care is taken in breeding and feeding The rivalry in the cattle reached its highest point when the Herrifords Angus and Shorthorn met in the various rings and when the shows were over each breed marched out with evidence of honors The truth is that the beef cattle shown would be a credit to any county or any fair in the State The mule shows were hardly up to the average though some good ones were brought to the front We can not I give all the interestingvfeatures due to lack of space but merely a mention of some of the leading shows and contests The four stakes saddle model com j bined and Roadster designed by the Association to tickle the fancy of the stockmen and to entertain the many present did not fall below the mark of expectation especially in the Roadster ring It proved one of the most spirited of the entire program The Ladies riding ring was warmly contested by four of the best riders in this part of the country and while only one could wear the blue yet the con test was so close that it took the Judge quite a while to make his mind The premium a Beautiful ten dollar nec lace was won by Mrs E E Cheatham and was presented by ovJ R Hind man ina few well chosen remarKs The riding contest for men between l the age of fifty and one hundred years was another feature It was wo byMrJDWalker who was warm J5ijr congratulated yhis many friends eTe colt shows failed to be as interest ti8p is usualsInce there were two or three that outclassed the great bulk of l ljwungsters ordinarily good enough to jpjpi after the blue ribbons Mr R F 4fcauirs colt Invjncible cut a broad wrath and took in every dollar it went idter Mr A S Chewnings and Mr J edgeandfeived Jfar will prove their greatness over the iTerage show horses F The draft contests for the best team j Sl horses and also for the best team of ules were features of unusual inter t fS5it In both it was almost beyond the l power of the marshals to keep the erowd from closing in olthe teams so er were the the- lowers of the various teams Mn Jo d won with the horses while Mr C jflfe Herriford outdone all others with I s powerful mules But few of our Iiwn people and stock men contested Sfe premiums Coffey Bros Young JoUY1ihowed one horse but landed two iitbr r SaC Mackin our special Judge ured up to the high expectation of

been disappointed Although the volume of the territorys trade demands was once small he has recog nized that it is growing rapidly Mr Harvey says that although his Uusiness here was in the beginning

spadonas boos drabs and floss The Arab deal ers bring them in unsorted packages containing feathers In yarious qualities of each kind and it therefore requires expert knowledge to buy advantage ously from tbe natives The goods are sold by the rotl The Tripoli rot is about eighteen ounces The feathers are washed and sorted but not dyed or curled They are washed in soapy water and when still wet are beaten A handful of them are taken by the stems and slapped against the floor with a force that to the uninitiated would seem to be enough to break them to pieces This is done to bring out the flues or bar bules the miniature feathers extending from the barbs and gives the plumes a fluffier richer appearance A good ostrich plume will have two or tbreo layers of feathers its tip should bo perfect and it should have no trans verse cuts along the vane For the retail trade two plumes are usually mounted together Burke as a Bore The most eloquent essay carefully prepared beforehand when delivered

Old London Clubs The days of quaint and queer clubs are days of the past We do not hear at present of a No Nose club or Club of Beans or a Man Killing club whose titles are suggestive of the Surly club whose object was the practice of contradiction and of foul language so that the members might not be wanting in impudence to abuse passengers on the Thames or of the Man Hunting club established once by young limbs of the law or of the Lying club every member of which was required to wear a blue cap with a red feather in it or of the Scatter Wit society consisting of wits or of the Hum Dum club whose members were to say nothing till midnight or of the Twopenny club a memlwr of which if he swore was to be kicked on the shins by the othermembers or of the Everlasting club which has not lasted long or of the Kit Cat club known after its toasts of Old Cats and Young Kits or of the Beef stead club of which the following amusing description was written by one of its illustrious members Like Britains island lies our steak A sea of gravy bounds it Shallots confusedly scattered make The rockwork that surrounds London Scraps Status of the Deadbeat No man is wholly free from sin but so many lesser evils are tolerated that a man should hesitate long before be coming a deadbeat Criminals are despised and abhorred but to the dead beat all that Is coming as well as thei contempt of his fellow men There is something at once so mean and so lit tIe in taking advantage of the confidence which comes with friendship that the hand of every man is turned against a deadbeat as soon as his reputation is well established The dead beat may fondly imagine he is living easy and making money without work and of course he takes no account of the confidence he violates and the hardships he inflicts on others But that aside he really has a harder time than the man who is honest and fair He is compelled to move a good deal and peace of mind he knows not Like other types of crooks he doesnt pros per and his finish is more unpleasant than the beginningAtchison Globe Rounded Knife Blades Until the seventeenth century knife blades had pointed ends as can be readily understood when the knife of those days was used for hunting and table purposes indiscriminately The rounded end was introduced from France in a curious way It happened that Cardinal Richelieu was compelled to entertain at his table a certain Chan cellor Sequier a vulgar and unmanner ly man who at the close of the meal proceeded to use his knife as a tooth pick This vulgar act so upset the cardinal that UP ordered the end of every knife in his possession to bo rounded and so great was Richelieus Influence that the fashion was soon Adopted all over the country This is the vulgar but nevertheless interest- Ing origin of the rounded knife of today Pearsons Weekly A Dinner For Titles In his autobiography A Fragment Professor Max Muller tells the follow ing anecdote of the Duke of Wellington His servant had been sent before to order dinner for him at an out of the way hotel and in order to im press the landlord with the dignity of his coming guest he recited a number of the dukes titles which were very numerous The landlord thinking that the Duke of Vittoria the Prince of Waterloo the Marquis of Torres Vetlras and all the rest were friends Invited to dine with the Duke of Wellington

is sometimes so fine that 4000000 twisted together would not have a combined diameter greater than that of an ordinary hair from the human head It Is impossible to conceive tbe excessive slenderness of one of the 4000 threads which compose such a line The bare statement that each one has a thickness only one sixteen thousand millionth of that of a human hair does not in any way convey the

and its earnest ness flagsas salt that has lost its savor so that it has no pungency or relish or as a bended bow which un less it be unbent loses the power that it derives from its elasticity Just so the mind kept from day to day in the same ideas without variety So the eyes when they look only atone object or continually upon one color For to look continually at a thing which is black or continually at red or at white destroys the sight Thus if one looks continually at the snow the sight is destroyed but it is en livened if he looks in succession or at the same time upon many colors

silk hat and a swallowtail coat the effect is so kaleidoscopic that a spectator has the sensation of being perpetually trans ferred from one phase of civilization to another The climax is reached in

or puny and weak depends upon the intelligence of its parents for most children are born into the world healthy but thousands become future weaklings between birth and tie age of ten when the parents are still in greatest control The prime cause of trouble is in tho stomach A baby that is digesting its food seldom cries and always looks cheer ful the little child whose stomach is good romps and plays and never whines the growing child learns well at school and is eager for fun if its head is clear and its stomach light and that means if it has no constipation The best and safest way to cure any irregularity of the stomach and bowels in children is by the use of Dr Caldwells Syrup Pepsin This is a liquid laxative wonderful in its effect as Mrs John W Dunham Apple Creek 0 Mrs H L Cullam

were pronounced cured at the same time three remained in the hospital more than a week after the other two had gone home They had to stay said an interne to get used to their wooden legs It takes some time to learn to manag them and most men who will have to peg along with them for the rest of their natural lives stay in the hospital several days after they get well hi practice stumping around on their new legs Of course they can learn out side but the man who has just acquired a wooden leg feels so awkward and is so likely to fall down and breathe other leg or an arm or maybe hie neck that we prefer to keep him here so he can take his first lessons under our supervisionNew York Press i Thousand Islands The Lake of the Thousand Islands is forty miles long and varies from four to seven miles

embarrassing to his adversary But he was served at last with that sauce which the proverb explains is for the gander as well as for the goose It was when he was challenged to fight an Irish sportsman Lord March ap peared on the ground accompanied by a second surgeon and other witnesses His opponent arrived soon afterward with a similar retinue but added to by a person who staggered under the weight of a polished oak coffin which he deposited on the ground utl t with its lid facing Lord March and hit party Lord March became deejcle uncomfortable when he read the in scription plate engraved with his own name and title and the date and year of death and peace was patched up Scaring the Conscience Of all her curious customs London cannot boast of a more singular OBi than that formerly so strictly adhered to at Holland House one of the most historic old mansions in the British capital The last of the Lords Holland shot himself during a fit of despond ency Everything pointed to a clear case of self murder yet the Holland family could never be dissuaded from the notion that the old man had beer murdered by some unknown assassin Accordingly every night for years it was the custom for one of the family to go to the rear of the house punctu ally at 11 oclock and fire a gun for the purpose it is said of scaring the con science of the murderer This curious practice is a relic of mediaeval days in continental Europe and the case in point is probably the only in stance where it has been noticed since the days of the crusades Pigeons Air Sacks The air sacks of the pigeon says Bruno Muller constitute a system of interspaces the value of which lies in their emptinessthat is absence of weight and resistance Flying is pos sible only to a body of high mechanical efficiency and we attain this with machines divested of all superfluous material Just so the original reptiles which by evolution became birds were divested of superfluous material anti the body spaces thus obtained were filled with air sacks The body wall- adapting iTself to the mechanical re- quIrements became a hollow cylinder serving as a support for the organs of movement the mobility of whose parts was assured by the surrounding air sacks The air cavities in the bones of birds are similarly explained Tonsorial Triumph What was the best job you ever did inquired the first barber- 1 once shaved a man

sting after which it can live a month and then deposits it in the cocoon where she has laid her egg On hatching out the wasp grubs feed on the bodies of the living spiders Another wasp deposits her egg in the body of the spider which is then buried alive and is fed upon by the wasp grub London Standard i FenceI either side she is ron sonably sure which one is going to win Shes a eat tAh then

attacks by certain Democratic newspapers in the State upon Editor Henry Watterson and Col John II Whallen at this particular time when both of them are heartily supporting the Democratic ticket is a very senseless procedure and it has as much the appearance of party dislbyality as the charges which are brought against these two men Admit that Watter son and Whallen have not been consistent Democrats admit that they have for a number of years past been enemies of the Demo cratic organization is it right to assail them now when they are heart and soul for the success of the Democratic ticket iiI Louis sinneir s andcomes into the church he is extended the right hand of fel lowship He is not assailed be cause he has done wrong but there is rejoicing because he has turned away from the wrong and promises to do better It is this kind of a policy only which will strengthen and buildup the Democratic party and unlessit is followed the Republicans will re tain control of Kentucky If the Democratic party is only for those who have never been dis loyal to it or have never scratch 10000e0 votes short of winning any State race It seems to us that it is time for all this crimination and recrimination to stop and for all kinds of Democrats to get to gether and stand together It is the only way to win victories If the rival ambitions of politican- are s ever to keep the party i turmoil and strife for their own partysIthere will byno party in Kentucky Attack- upon Wrhailer and Watterson cannot possibly help the Democratic ticket in Louisville They aresure to hurt it and if persist ed in will encompass its defea- The time to attack prominent politicians and leaders is not when they are fighting hard for success Every article published by Democratic newpapers at this time against Watterson and Whallen is received with joy in the Republican camp in Louisville and published with gre glee into the organ of the Republican party the Louisville Post It is material and ammunition for the Republicans If it is persisted in the Democratic ticket in Louisville will be defeated and the papers which are attacking Watterson and Whallen will have to bear a large part of the responsibility for the defeat Quit it gentlemen it will not help you and can accomplish no other purpose than to hurt the Democratic ticket If as is intimated you are making this fight because as you allege John Whallen is trying to get control of the party oration gan in the State you should remember that the last tion we had led it to defeat a a change might not worst the condition but there is
