A FATAL FALL ,
John Waddell , of the Gover
nor's Guard , Dies
at His Work.
Remains Lying in State at
Coroner Jacobs' Booms ,
A serious accident occurred at the
Fair grounds early Tuesday morning
which resulted yesterday in the
death of the victim. John Waddell
was a private in Company E , of Sat-
ton , which is , as all know , assigned to
do special polica duty on the grounds
during the Fair. He is a young man
23 years of age , the son of a well-to-
do farmer living seven miles north cf
Tuesday morning Waddell was put
on guird , his duty being to watch the
fence along the east side of the driving
park , to see that no intruders got into
the grounds by climbing over. Be
tween 9 and 10 o'clock he was sitting
on the front gate , in order to com
mand the view all along the line of
fence , and while BO doing was
encaged in talking to a companion.
Several Tvere talking and joking
around , and he was also laughing
heartily with the rest At length one
of the number who was behind Wad
dell started to move away , when the
htler turned his head to watch him
and being rather careless bo turned
his head too far , lost his balance and
fell off the fence backward ,
striking with heavy force on the
back of his neck jnat at the head of
the spinal column. Ho was picked up
and it was found that his entire body
from the neck down was paralyzed ,
although he retained his conscious
ness and could convene as well.
With the reaction from the shock this
morning , convulsions set in and at 9
o'clock Jie expired. His body was
taken to undertaker Jacobs where it
will remain probably until Monday.
His parents and brothers have been
telegraphed the sad news and are ex
pected here by the first train.

comedy is all they claim for it. John
Dillon was in his happiest rein. The
company supporting him was fully

The Large and Small Alike
The weather this morning was ao
cold and wet that people were reluct
ant to leave the comfortable retreats
of the city for the Fair grounds except
clad iu. overcoats and wraps. Toward
noon the clouds that had darkened the
iky cleared away and people began to
flock in by thousands. Especial at-
ention was given to that part of the
ixhibition within the various halls.
The wisdom and foresight of the
gentlemen who planned the fair
buildings Is nowhere more- conspicu
ously displayed than in dividing the
various exhibits and placing some at
tractions in all corners , thus prevent-
ng a crush at any point , and scatter-
ng the vast crowd over the entire
grounds. While the main building is
filled with multifarious articles , both
useful and ornamental , it does not
comprise mora than one-fourth of the
expssition. Oil the north end of the
grounds monster bulh and cows of
royal descent peacefully browse.
Here , also , pens of graded
ewes and vicious-looking rams ;
hogs by the hundreds , and thorough
bred horses in well kept stalls.
If the vhitora tire of animal sights ,
the poultry house is close at hand , and
a careful examination will prove both
instructive and amusing. Next comes
the machinery department with its
thousands of agricultural implements
of every shape and purpose. The
next building is called
"MECHANICS' HALL , "
hut any other name would fiound as
sweet and be equally appropriate , for
the title only burlesques the contents.
Hera the large business houses
of Omaha are located , " with extensive
exhibits of their goodi. Conspicuous

Mr. Piercy enters warmly in the fall and
winter trade race , prepared to make it
hot for any dealer aud house-keeper in
the town. First aud foremost in his
line of heating stoves stinds the New
liecla , manufactured by the Hansom
Stove Works , of Albany , N. Y. ,
and Chicago , III. The most im
portant feature of those stoves
is the combination duplex grate for
removing ashes and clinkers from
the fire pot withoutdlsturbingthe fire ,
and in euch a manner as to prevent
ashes falling on the carpet. The fire
pot is sectional , of the most approved
construction , any section or the whole
of which can bo removed and replaced
without dismounting any prt of the
stove. The ornaments are of a most
elaborate character , embracing an
urn , entirely nicklo-plated ; a mckln
plated drum section ; elegant plaltd
name plttca and foot rail , and a fancy
baee , which , while adding greatly to"
th.o beauty of the stove , still retains
.ill the strength of the dove-tailed
leg. The pantls of the drum section
are protected by currents of air pass
ing underneath them , from discolor
ation by heat , and , being fastened
without 1 oils or scraws , can be re
moved and replaced with tha great-
eat ease. There arc four sizes of
these stoves , with or without ovens ,
suitable for large or small pirlors.
Mr. Piercy also displayed the West

guaranteed to give twenty-
tivo per cent more heat in.
proportion to the fuel burned , than
any other stoves of corresponding sl/c
ill the market. There arc four eizes
of each , with or without ovens. An
other great feature of the display is
the "Baltimore Mantle Heater" for
fire places ; also the "Windsor" wood-
burning heater , with automatic dam
per , and the tile-lined parlor stove ,
beautiful in design , strong in con
struction , and economical in fuel.
In the way of cook stoves and
ranges Mr. Piercy carries a full assortment -
ment , varied in size , style and
quality. Buck's Brilliant stoves ,
tor wood and jsoal , or both ,
combined , take the lead , and the
large number already sold in Omaha
proves their popularity. Thtre are
eleven sizp ? , with numerous attach
ments to lighten the labors of kitchen
queens. Next , but not least , comes
the "Acorn" cooks , manufactured by
Rathburno , Lord & | Co. These stoves
possess superior qualities as bakers ,
are economical in fuel , either
coal or wood ; treble lined
oven backs and flue ? , portable
reservoirs and large double closers.
The "Prize Acorn" is a beauty , in
finish , strength and durability equal
to any in the market. The sizes and
styles are numerous and suitable for
all classes. The Acorn and Bismarck
ranges were also exhibited , together
with a largo variety of granite ware
and Tiunera' stock. Tne display was

The pioneer farmers of Kearney

main building , a vast collection of the
products of that county , consisting of
twenty varieties of wheat , thirty of
corn , husked and on the stalk , two of
barlay , one of rye , live of oats , two
of millet , all of which are of fair
quality , full and round , showing the
remarkable productiveness of the
soil. Kearney county vns in the

tended to retard thegrowth and reduce
the size and grade of grain , but the
goil retunod mois'ure to a wonderful
degree , and saved the fft'lnera from

line there are fine potatoes , huge

vegetables raised in the county. It
stands unrivalled in extent and

Mr. J. D. Smith , the Sixteenth

Mr. Tousley also displays his garden

THE MILLINERY DISPLAYS.
The variety , extent and number of
articles that fill the main building ,
combining the aits of man and na
ture , have been pretty thoroughly re
viewed in recent numbers of THE
BEE , so that few remain worthy of ex
tended notice. Conspicuous among
these is the display of millinery goods
of A. Atkinson , unrivaled in exten' ,
quality and cosilincaa. There ve
bonnets and hats of plush , brocadt d
velvets , satin silk and otter , efejjantly
trimmed , fit to adorn the head of a
queen. Here also ara a large num
ber and variety of nntrimiued hats ,
doll bonnets , feathers , ribbons , trim
mings and ornaments. Three 1-uge
cases are filled , surmounted with a
trea of ostrich plumes , the most beau
tiful in color , length and breadth ever
seen in the west The entire display
overshadows in every respect all coin
l5ctitora , sustaining Mr. Atkinson's
claim to the "Acknowledged loading
illinery establishment of Omaha and
Nebraska. " The house not only
leads in the millinery trade , but is
likewise the oldes *
, having been es
tablished in 1867 , and has a repnta-
ticn for fine goods and low prices sx-
tending beyond the limits of the
state. Every lady should examine
this display to get an insight to the
tine goods to be unveiled at the oppn-
ing to-night at the southeast corner of
Douglas and Thirteenth streets.
Next Mr. Atkinson's exhibit , and
equally conspicuous in Its line , ia the
display of ladies' suits , dolmans ,
laces , ruchings , gloves , etc. The ra-
cent trip of Mr. Chas. McDonald to
the faehion capitals of Europe , was
not altogether of a recreative nature ,
and already large quantities of beau
tiful suits and dolmans have arrived
from Paris and London , a few speci
mens of which are exhibited. The
first of these is a dark brown brocaded
Turkey satin dress , with dark plush
trimmings , ball fringe , made up iu
ihft latest style. A dolman of cam
el's hair cloth , with trimmings to
match , covers the figure , jresenting a
most fascinating appearance. Next
to this is a dolman of black m&tteluse
cloth with imperial cord and bead
trimmings , very handsome and styl
ish. A suit of London blue silk , with
plush ir.nra.ings and cheneille ball
fringe to match , enchanathe eye aud
vies with its fascinating neighbors. Anew
now and attractive feature In im
ported goods is a new style jacket
made of French diagonal , with fur
and plush trimmicgs and brilliant
buttons. It is exceedingly nobby and
novel. Surpassing all is an elegant
black Sicilian silk cloak with silver
fox fur trimmings. THE BEE man
did not obtain the price , but it must
urn np Into the hundreds.
The adjourned race , for two year
olds , half mile dash will be run to
day. Also , the trolting race for three
year olds , half mile heats , _ best three
in five will be sandwiched in.
The management gives notice that
during the remainder of the fa < r the
trotting rules will be strictly observed
and all horses will bo put on their
metal and obliged to do their beat.
There will be no jockeying and the
consequence will be expected. . This
will be especially g uifying in view of
the entries for the great free-for-all
race , as some of the horses entered
have a record of 2:10 and with a good
track at least 2:18 : time ought to be
made. The entries for the free-for-
all race are Will Cody , Charlie Doug
las , Nettie Ward and Loafer. The
race is for a purse of § 1,000 , best
three In live.
Early yesterday afternoon Judge
James W. Savage was introduced in
Agricultural Hall by Col. E F.
Smythe and delivered an excellent ad-
draS , which he styled ' 'A plea for the
Boys and Girls. " His address showed
HU intimate knowledge with all the
vicisitudes and enjoyments of farm
life and a high appreciation of thopro-
duetion of the productive lab r , whote
results we assemble to exhibit , view
and compare. At the close of the ad
dress , 0. A. Baldwin offered a resolu
tion of thanks in the nntr.e of the Ag
