The Holt county fair formally
opened Wednesday noon with one of
the largest first day attendances in
its history. The exhibits of live
■stock, agricultural products, etc., are
most extensive and exceptionally fine,
and the program of amusements pre
pared by President Art Hahn and
Secretary John L. Quig is a dandy.
The racing program comprises eight
races Wednesday, six for Thursday
and five for Friday. Racing stables
from Winner, Colome, Elgin, Ran
dolph, Crawford, Cody, Gordon, Bas
sett and Albion are represented at
the meet, with more than eighty
horses here to contest in the several
events. A fast baseball game each
day also is a feature of the program.
The Royal and Lynch teams are play
ing Wednesday, Emmet and O’Neill
Thursday and the winners of the first
two games Friday.
An innovation this year is the night
program at the grounds instead of up
town. The carnival attractions and
free acts all are good and the Ted
North Players, who present a new play
each evening during the entire week
is one of the best stock companies
ever , ppearing in O’Neill. The North
plays are clean and fresh, the actors
young and sparkling and the humor
really funny. There are no reserved
seats in the big show tent, each seat
being a comfortable covered chair,
with the early arrivals getting the
best ones, which is why you should
arrive early.

The many O’Neill friends of Eddie
Allen, who by his unexcelled pitching
made the O’Neill baseball team the
winning team it was during the sum
mer, will regret to learn that a severe
cold and a threatened attack of pneu
monia may keep him out of the
Creighton line-up in the football game
with Midland college Saturday. Al
len is one of the regular ends on the
Creighton university team and his
absence next Saturday,if he should not
be able to play, will be severely felt
according to the sport writers. Ed
die Allen made many friends in
O’Neill this summer by his geniality,
sportsmanship and gentlemanly con
duct and they will follow his ath et»c
cnreer this fall and winter with dose
attention nnd sincere wishes for his
success. Allen, with the Doyle broth
ers, will be most heartily welcomed
back to O’Neill next spring should
they decide to return.

The O’Neill baseball team admin
istered its fourth defeat to Verdigre
at the fair grounds Sunday afternoon
by trimming the Knox county men
14 to 1. The day was raw and chilly,
the cold hampering the players con
siderably. Battery for O’Neill:
Brown, Bishop and Holliday. Verdi
gre: Higgenbotham and Herbek.
O’Neill and Bloomfield will settle
the championship of northeast Ne
braska on the baseball diamond at
Creighton Sunday afternoon. The
two teams are the speediest of the
section and have not met before dur
ing the present season. The game is
the result of a challenge by Bloom
field after O’Neill had so decisively
defeated Tyndall at Bloomfield last
week and is for the gate receipts and
a large side bet. It will be a contest
no true baseball fan will care to miss.
