As usual Art hill wns the center of nttrne

Its roof wero gathered tlio host samples of
Nebraska iixjplaV hail llwork In nriny varied
forms, foreign nud domestic dry goods, pure
toned pianos fraui tlio lies factories of tlio
enst, besides hi tides too numerous to men
tion. Lincoln business men weio represented
In largo nnmlioni, wlillo from all over tlio
state camo merchants and m iinifacttirerH
with neat mid tasty displays.
Horticultural hall was filled with tlio choic
est products of tho tlorist nud gardener, nml
u visit to the fair wns not complete without
a half-hour's or mi hour's stay in this bower
of How em mid gmden pioduds. Jinny hull
vldtinl exhibits ueio shown, Lincoln florists
taking tlio lend.
Tho county displays wero much larger nod
more numerous thnu those of lnt year. Iiu

tho illsplnyH from Perkins, Pox llutto, Keith,
l'lntto, Thayur nud other counties nro deserv
ing of butter mention th'in wo can give In
our limited space.
Tho Stnto Fish commission wns on hand
with Its hnndsomo collection of scclmehs of
tho lluny trllM, and tho building, leserved
for Its exhibit, liko nil tho others, was filled
with peoplo nt nil hours. Ilesldcs tho socl

Tlio ixiultry exhibit wns nlso n very lino
ono, tho majority of tho fowls coming from
liluo Spring mid Wyinore, nl thong Lincoln,
Wnlioo nml othtr points wero represonto 1 by
handsome-feathered sjiecimens.
Tho umchiuery exhibit was, ns usual, tho
largost of nny, mid vlod with tho lunch rooms
nud dining halls in point of numbers. Tlio
omnipresent agent, with seductive volco mid
gaudily-painted machine, beguiled the lurk
ing dollar from tho recesses of tho granger's
po:kct, nml nil drove n good business,
Tho races, however, wero tho chief object
of interest to tho multitude, nud hours boforo
tho time announced for tho start tho ninphl
tlieatro mass of struggling eoplo, tho
fences mid sheds in tlio vicinity wero dotted
with human beings, while tho qunrter-streteh
received n vnst overflow. The s-ono wns ro
Ioatcl overy day, nud nt least 15,000 jwoplo

; K,r .Tftko It all-in-nil, It was ono of. tho greatest
wccks in nebraakn's history; tho displays
from the various counties, ns compared with
thoso of last year, marking plainly tho great
strides ouwnrd that tho stnto tins taken inn
short twelvemonths. Wo do not lielluvo that
tho ntteudaiico was ns largo In tho aggregate
this yearns last, but this wns owing to sev
eral causes, principally tho nninrtl encamp,
mentof tlio O. A. H. of tho United States
A conservative estimate, however, places tho
nggregnte iittendnnco nt 100,0,)!), which is
probably about correct.
Follow lug nro n fow of tho exhibits shown:
Ono of tho most pleasing objects of Inter
est among tho many to bo wen In tho Ait
hall Is that of Perkins llros., tho leading boot
nud bhoo men of tho city. It occupies n prom
inent position In tlio center of tho hall, nud
has been the focus for thousands of ndmiiing
eyes during tho fair. On a tastefully drniied
pyramid, enclosed In a handsome framewnrk,
nro shoes nud slippers of tho very finest grade
of nil tho different sliMxs and colors. Per
kins llros. havo so long been tho leaders lu
fnshtoutihlo footwent, Hint thoso who mono
puiltited with the house mid tho goods they
Imndlo know what their exhibit consists of.
Hero we find tho dainty ball slipper, in nil
conceivable designs mid shnpos. elegant gait
ers nud footw ear of nil kinds for gentlemen,
nud novelties of overy description. Pel kins
Pros, make n specialty of perfect-fitting
goods, and every article Isguaianteed toglvo
satisfaction. All their goods nro mndu csjiec
ially for their trade, mid boar tlio firm tindo
mark. The Ntimplcs displayed nro from tlio
lest nud most stylish makers, nml leprosent
every stylo mid make of fashionable shoes.
Tho "HoinoComfoit"is nil odd shaped but
seemingly comfnrtnblo bhoo, suggestive of a
warm Iheplnco and ncoy nmi rhnlr. Pat
ent leather vamps mid tips In nil makes nro
shown mid form n very uttructlvo pnrt of
tho exhibit. Kach shoo nud slipper Is stuffed
with cotton to show Its perfect shnp, mid tho
exhibit, as u wholo Is worthy of n much larger
city. A bluu tag on tho goods show that they
have Ikhmi awarded first premium over all
c)iiiK!tltors, mid tho decision Is n most just
ono. Tho summer and fall styles of "Oxford"'
mid "Koulhei u" ties mo very fine, mid me
inadoupiii Fieuch kid, Jkaugnroo mid other
novelty leather. The display of goods car
ried In slok nt their O street storo shows
that they nro progressive business men, up
with tho times, mid strive to please. Any one
lu n-ed of flno articles of footwear is always
Hue of being suited lu style and price.
For u number of years past Jlr. F. W.
Ilohmauu, Llucolu'tt pioneer music denier bus
had mi exhibition of his lino at the fair, hut
tho display this season surpasses nil previous
efforts. Tho largo mid tastefully m ranged
pavilion erected In tho south wing of Art
hall was tilled with organs mid pianos of va
ilous innUcM mid many kinds, the principal
ones being the Whedock, llelmilugnud Km-
inch Si Until, nil New oik pianos nml the
iHUcrcut styles, viz: (liaiid, sipiaro nud up
light. Organs such as the well known Mason
& Ilmiiliu, Whitney and ltiiyinoud, l H.
organ mid tho Karhulf makes were shown to
hmidieds of callers. Mr Hnhmauii tliiough
neaily twenty years of sipiaie-deallng busi

Nebraska ami tho west, mall outers fiom a

Mr. Hohmami Is nlso a conioser of music
nud hns during tho past fow years given to
tho public among other pieces for tho piano

Jlr. 8. P. Hohinau, agent for this very
K)iulnr instrument, had on exhibition the
finest piano in Ait hall, which was the center
of admiration of all who lovo music and nil
uiiro tho work of urt in household furnish
ings. It was nil upright, tundo of Kngllsh onk,
highly fluishod and artistically carved, con
taining all tho Litest and best patents, and
when Jlrv IIohmnnl who was ensonally pres
ent, played selections on tho instrument, it
held tho musical cars of tho vnst throng in
the closest attention, "Oh, what a delight
ful tone," ono lady was heard to leniaik;
while unother would siy, "soclear and sweet,
I never hemil anything to eipinl It," nud
then nil hands would usk for u curd mid ex
press their appreciation of the merits of tho
There seems somutlilng wonderful how this
piano has attained its imputation lu a coiu
purativcly shoit tlnto, but not so when one
stops to consider how much butter It is than
its numerous livnls.
Jlr. Henry ICrooger, tin senior member of
this manufacturing llrin w as for twenty-tin ce
years foi email of the well known Kteiuway
piano factory, nud It was through this gen
tleman's many devices, ingenuity mid
thorough knowledge of tho bii.slue.iy, that tho
Hteinwny made such n success. However,
since retiring from their employ, Mr Kroe
gor hns made a uiimhcrof Improvements over
the piano of several years ago, and of such
sterling vnliio tint many hno tiled to Imi
tate, but none hao succeeded, for everything
ndded has been duly protected by patents,
nud me found in iioiio but instruments of
tills make. One of tho patents is tho obtuse
miirulur melal frame, which Is not only
claimed by tho manufacturers, but by all
eminent imiMclitns who have tried It, to be
suierlor to oil other piano frames, thus afford
ing a richer tone, etc. All uptight pianos
nro thrce-stiinged mid routulu now Cnpo
d'Astro bar, which is n recent patent, dated
October 111, 1SSH.
Thero Is much to say in favor of tlio piano
nud to speak of nil Its merits would consume
too much timo mid space, which during this
particular lively fair week is both scnirennd
vnluable However, suillce It to say that the
ICioeger piano iniulo for itself a big hit nud
nil ikm-sous desiring to lenrn more of It may
receive full iufoinmtiou by calling on Jlr. K.

III n h.iiidsomu pagoda shaicd building,
midway between Agilcultural hill mid tho
Art hall, tho Whitebreast Coal nml Llmo
company, u long-established Lincoln business

the pioducls of their mines. In tho center of
this structure is a handsomely-built pjramld

'1 ho principal object of Intel est to visitors,
however, mid ono that attracted thousands of
isftors was mi Immense block of Canon City
coal weighing two ami a ipiaitor tons, just as
It was milled from the eaith. IVonin uom
greatly surprlst that sucha blis'lt ns this

which such n feat could bo accomplished,
Tho ailous Fmnples of hard and sott coals

One of tho haiiiho'iiest displays hi Ait hall
nud one that probably attracted as much at
tention ns'uiiy, and paitlcularly from those
who adiiilro art lu photography, was that of
tho Haydeii studios which covered n largo
