THE COUNTY FAIR
Y. W. C. A. Will Give an Old-Time
The Y. W. C. A. girls have revived
a number of traditions and customs
that wore In vogue In the days when
our grandmothers were young and
everything was perfect, and this even
ing In the Armory they will present to
the public view the results of their
work of reconstruction. Not only will
they revive memories of things ex
isting long ago, but they will bring
back to us recollections of things that
set our own hearts afire In the sunny
days of our youth. The county fair
was the attraction of the age when we
were young, and how often have our
hearts bounded in delight In anticipa
tion of the eventful day each year when
father hitched the horses to the lumber
wagon and took us all to the fair to
view the sights.
With what delight did we behold
tho products of the soil, represnting
as they did the largest and best that
agriculture could produce, as we be
held them piled up in high pyramids
or neatly arranged on tables, or some
monstrosity of the vegetable world
standing forth In solitary grandeur,
thus proclaiming its high standard of
excellence. The man that made taffy
In the big, black kettle, the speller who
extolled the wonderful prodigy "with
in,1' the competition for canes and um
brellas, the booths, the races, and In
fact everything was there.
All these features can be seen at
the County Fair in the Armory this
evening with such slight variations aB
a touch of the artificial may render
necessary. Yet there will be enough
to remind us of the dear old times, of
the sweet Innocence of childhood when
breakfast foods had not been invented
and drinking water was not 50 per cent
microbes'. In those days we had no
grevlous' troubles, no Inexorable peda
gogues to flunk us when we failed to
make good on our lessons. So just for
tho sake of the olden time when we all
ate taffy Instead of Nut Sundaes for
refreshments and considered ourselves
In tho seventh heaven of delight, come
out this evening and throw off all the
affectation and formality with which
passing years have loaded you down,
and enjoy a pleasant evening.
There will bo booths in profusion,
where you can Investigate for your
selves tho curious arrangements that
mind and matter havo combined to pro
duce. Fifteen booths, and each one a
treasuro houso of entertainment and
containing some -nondor surpassing all

contest, but as to whether the result
of tho judges- will bo followed by a
scratching of faces and pulling of hair
on tho part of angry mothers, aa used
to happen at the old county fair, we
can not say authoritatively.
Mrs. Jarloy'fi Wax Worksare going
to be a high-class attraction, but wo
aro not pormltted to enter into details
on this Bubject, as it Is shrouded by an
air of mystery which arouses our curi
osity, but wo are unable to secure en
lightenment. Mrs. Carrio Nation,
whoso home Is in Manhattan, Kas., and
who carries a hatchet, will bo there to
preserve temperance among the visit
ors. She will preside over tho W. C. T.
U. booth and will be willing o tell of
her antipathy to features sometimes
nttending county fairs, but which we
hope will not be provalent hero. Sa
mantha Alien has kindly consented to
bo present, and do her share toward
preserving strict decorum and giving
There will be races races, indeed; a
gallaxy of whirling, flying midgets and
tall women each striving vigorously to

finally all aro Invited to como and
"chute the chutes."
But this isn't all. There are going
to bo "Plantation Melodies," in which
minstrel voices will figuro largely.
"Red lemonade and popcorn for all"
Is advertised and certainly sounds fa
miliar. And finally tnero Is something
seductive about the Invitation ome
Early and Stay Late." The last part
of this Invitation seems superfluous;
for If you do come early, you will want
to stay late.
The Y. W. C. A. girls have given
the assurance that tho entertainment
will be of the Highest order through
out, and we should all be willing to
take their word for It. Therefore,
come out this evening and throw off
your load of care, and Join In and act
foolish and be young again.

field In suit today.
It Is hoped that tho students will
turn out well today. This Is next to
tho last game this season, and every

were picked up by their enthusiastic
supporters and carried from the field.
A good Blzed crowd was out and root
ing was good for both teams. Tho
Freshmen felt victorious all through
the game, their chief yoll being:
"What's the matter with the Seniors?
Nothing! What's nothing? Seniors!"
Next Wednesday they will decide onco
for all "Who's nothing."
Tho SonlorB haven't as many scrubs
on their team, but they havo sortie good
material and are well coached. They
played a good game against tho Ju
niors and will go against the Fresh
men to win. Botli traniB will play their
bept. since the Inter-class c'.'amplonshlp
Is at stake and, moreover, the Seniors
will fight for their honor, since the dis
grace of being beaten by Freshmon
would be Intolerable. This game, tak
ing place tho last afternoon before tho
Thanksgiving recess, will bring out a
large crowd, which will add much to
the Interest of the game. To preservo

Sophomore Team Beaten in a
The big game was finally played and
the Freshmen proved themselves mas
ters of the situation, outplaying their
opponents almost at every turn and
leaving the final Bcore 13 to 0. The
Sophs played against odds, however,
as the Freshman line-up was practi
cally that of the University Scrubs.
But tho Sophs played a desperate
game and in the first half held the
Freshmety down to 2 bcores, which
were made by a sarety ana goal, ine
ball was almost continually in Soph
territory, and they saved tholr goal
only by frequent punting. The second
half was characterized by hard and
fast playing and many sensational
runs, for' which the Freshmen again
weie mostly responsible. Drain was
easily tho star, making both touch
downs,, besides a number of long runs.
Bishop, Burns and Stein all made good
gain for tho Freshmen. Cook mado tho
only long run for tho Sophs, and
Clark's line-bucking was" very good.
McLaughlin tried a place kick for tho
Sophs, but missed goal by a few feot.
Tho game was hard fought and the
Sophs dCBorvo credit for holding tholr
opnpnonts down as wejl as they klid.
The Freshmen back field was simply
too wift, and the team work was much
complimented by old football men. Af
