Railroad employes, as well as all persons
interested in the observance of the Sabbeth,
will hail with joy the recent action of several

The management of the Nebraska state
board of agricnlture is arranging for an ex
traordinary fair and exposition at Lincoln in
September next. While the association was
organized almost exclusively as an agricultural
developing medium, and at first, and for many
years following, acted and worked in that line
principally because our own people, as a rule,
regarded the state as peculiarly and almost
exclusively agricultural in its characteristics,
of late years there has been most gratifying
tendencies in the direction of manufacturing
industries. As a result there has been organ
ized a state manufacturers' and consumer's as
sociation. Last year a large portion of the
agricultural hall on the state fair grounds was
given this association for its annual exhibit, at
the same time, on the same grounds, and in
connection with the state fair, as a part of the
great state exposition, and with most agreea
ble and satisfactory results. This year the
manufacturers’ association is to occupy all of
the large hall on the fair grouds erected for
and known as merchants’ hall. This will in
sure a grand exhibit of both the agricultural
and manufacturing resources of the state.
In asking bids for the relocation of the state
fair and exposition for the coming five years,
one of the prominent specifications will be for
a manufacturers’ hall of sufficient capacity to
accommodate the growing demands of the
Nebraska manufacturing factors.
The art demands of the state are of such
rapid growth that more space is required for
this department and will be furnished in due
The superintendents of agricultural and
horticultural halls are already impoi tuning
the management for more space. Also the
poultry, honey and fish departments.
Columbian year seems to have stimulated
to fair work all over the state. County organ
izations are early in the field and already ac
tively at work for the coming fall campaign.
All in all the outlook for fairs in 1894 is most
promising, and the climax will come in the
final state grand round up on the days of Sep
tember 7 to 14 next.
