Th# fount* Fair.
The Sherman county Fair which op
ened last Monday was ijoltc well atten
ded this year, more so than last, yet
the attendance was not »o large as ex
pected. Neither was the exibition of
grain and other products so large us It
should have been but wbut was brought
In was of very good quality and would
have stood a good show for flrat prize
at the state fair. With all the fair was
a success The tlrst day was busily
spent by th" olHcrea In arranging the
exhibits mid all persons were admitted
to the grounds free.
The second day opened with cloudy
weather and by noon It was raining
hard, The rain lasted about an hour
and made the race course so heavy that
It was necessary to pospono the races,
President Drake then announced that
races would come off on Wednesday
the day following, and that the Wed
nesday races would take place on Tues
day, and those who had tickets for Tues
day, the rainy day, would be admitted
to the grounds on Wednesday without
extra charge. In fact the l'lirsdaya
program was entirely posponed except
the ball game between the f,oup City
and tirevley Canter clubs. The games
was very Interesting and witnessed by a
large crowd. The first two innings
were played without a score on either
side. The game resulted In a score of
!) to 2 in favor of the Greeley Center !
On Wednesday as formerly announc
ed the program for Tuesday was carried
out, Hie crowd was large, the gate
receipts being almost a hundred dollars.

.Milford Maid and *iat*baw owned by
Savage Bros, of Sargent; a beautiful
little blaek mare, Jerema, owned by
Lasbmctt of Kent; and Dandy A., a
bright hay, owned by Audio of Ord.
Only two heat* wa* necessary to decide
the race tho horse* each time coming
out In the following order, with Savage
Bros, easy winner* of both first and
second money and Lasbmctt third mon
ey: Milford Maid 1st, 8at»haw 2nd,
Jerema 3rd. and Dandy A. dtit. First
heat, time 3:00: second heat, 2:63.
I Another taking feature of tho program
was the maiden trotting race of ouo
half mile for a purse of $15. In this
race Mose Lasbmctt entered Ids little
hay two year old. Cody ; and Mr. Auble
entered I.ady Winks, also a two year
old and daughter of Tiddly Winks.
The colt* did remarkably well In eplng
their feet even better than the older
horses. The money was easily won by

One of I lie bicycle races wa* won by
Dick O'Bryan and the other by Bate*
The base hall game between the
Greeley Center and Loup City clubs for
this day proved highly interesting
It was apparent from the result of the
game the day before that the Greeley
team would win tiie sugar, und it was
also known that Loup City would
make them earn the money. Tho first
five Inning* would haye done credit to
club* of national reputation, the score
then standing Greeley 4, Loup City
1. The siidh inning gave Loup City
one more anil the Greeley boys three,
ail hard earned tallies. At the close
j of the game the score stood Loup City
II Greeley Center 10 Our buy* say
that thi* team is the best that has oyer
crossed Imts with them on the Loup
City diamond. They are all gentlemen
and while they closely contested for
every inch, were fair and corteous.

An Upon Lottor
To .John Mi.nsiii j,i„
My Dear John: It did my whole
soul and part of my body good to
learn that the populist convention of
winch I had the honor to he a mem
ber, hud nominated you for county
clerk. I am aware that you need
the office, ought to have had >it be
fore, and so I propose to stay with
you until the cows come home and
until the big rooster la the Times
Independent crows for your success
November next. I want, you to
get there for several reasons; fore
most among them is because you
have a faculty of holding onto what
so-ever you lay hold of. Darned
few of us tun compete with you in
that respect. Only a short time
ago I read an account of how you
came out on top in a contest for
trustee of the village of Litchfield,
wherein you was contesting* with a
republican for your seat on the vil
lage board. You bad the office, the
other fellow wanted it, and in fact
the people of Litchfield wanted him
to have it, and they elected him
almost two to one against you, but
when he came after the ofliue you
just said, 1 no sir, I’ve got her and
I’m going to keep her;” and darned
if you did'nt keep her too. Thais
the kind of stuff a good pop is made
of. When you get au otliec keep
her; and I'm going to support all
such fellows. Another thing you
look the matter before judge Sullivan
that rcuuhlican what oiimned flee
silver Into thu people lust full, uu<!
lo and behold you won the ease
without arguing it. A tnau who
can and does lutng on to un office
like that only increases my admoni
tion for him. With you ns officer
it would'nt be necessary lor thu offi
ce to lie ruuuing around every two
years hunting after the ututi. You
sec if wo should get you time wo
would have the tiling tor keeps.
For instance, if your would be suc
cessor should happen to be a repub
lican you could just exercise your
stsy ing ijunlities and, by gosh lie
would have to hunt another job
\Y ll John, there are other reasons
why l will stand In you. but 1 must
close for this time. Yon tuay hear
from me uuiu before the polls open.
In closing however, I waut to urge
every good and loyal populist to
support you, knowing that if you
are elected are will have a dead dm h
on the business tor a long, i*mg
time lie - peelfailV \ oUts,
