No\v of a Day ,
' Thursday , the fourth day of tha atato
fair , was ushered In by cloudy weather
and a alight rain , hardly , sufficient , how
ever ; to lay the dust. By 9 o'clock tha
nun cam o ont and by noon the heat was
rather moro than comfortable. The
grounda comuunccd to fill early In the
day. and bands of mnslo in the fltanda
played , the people walked about and
orotyono sotmcd happy. Tbo principal
place of attraction , particularly to fr-
morB , waa the cattle atalla , and the ex
hibits certainly trcro a credit to
any slate In the union , let
alone Nebraska , Hohtolns , Durhams ,
Devonshlrea and Jerseys were all
\voll represented , and any comparison M
to their respective excellence would bo
unjutt. Smooth coats carefully curried ,
iat bicks and aides , hnely polished horns
woru prominent features in nil the stalls ,
oven among those cattle which were de
nominated fat stock. In the show ring
during the morning stalllono uud heavy
draft horses wora exhibited , classed and
awarded their ribbons. During the
early afternoon the cittlo were ehown ,
and aa they lumbered olnmsily around
the ring many exclamations of nmuso-
ment were expressed that such fat animals
could walk at all. They did , however -
over , nnd before they were led away ta
their quarters upon the horns of many oi
, them ilutterod bright blue , and red ribbons
bens emblematic cf their victory over
loss pure blooded animals. During the
day the various halls , buildings , amuse
ment booths , and refreshment stands
were filled with vluitors , all delighted
with everything they taw. Orange Judd ,
the well known etock journalist , and
authority on all mattora appertaining to
farm management , addressed a largo
audience composed of f armors anxious to
got what points they could to bolter , if
possible , the conduct of tnolf farms
and the sJ breeding of stock ,
The speaker talked generally of the ro-
cesalty of care in all things , and endeav
ored to show that by frugality and
patience , any man owning 1GO acres of
land could become a king over his own
domln'on. ' The state troops were on the
parade grounds again yesterday and
went through a number ot well executed
evolutions. Art hall and Its Immediate
vicinity was much frequented , and the
many line exhibits drew forth extrava
gant expressions of approval , Among
many others there was none moro novel
than that of tbo
of Omahn. In the northwest corner of
the building just at the entrance the eyes
of visitors were struck with
, - .curious looking whlto knoba
S ' something like the haudles
to an old-fashioned bureau. They found
letters which spelled out cave the name
* of tbu company Itself. The knobs were
nothing moro than those nsud to carry
' the wires of cluctrlo appsra'us of nny
kind and were but n small portion of the
exhibit. Hotel , house and burglar alarm
enunclators , hotel call and lire alarm
cases , made up in the most beautiful fash
ion , were placed In a manner to dlsfliy
their uio. Models of doors and windows
with the burglar alarm attachment ara
used to show the working of the device.
As the window was raised or the door
opened a bell commenced ringing sharp
ly and continuous enough to frighten
almost any bad character ont of his wits.
The exhibit included a number ( f other
apparatus used for experiment ! , tele
graph communication end othtr things.
The Midland'company took tbo first
prize at Omaha for thii kind of nunufac-
turo , and it will probably do so hero.
The company haa already ostabllahid a
large business , and a number of its hotel
call-boarda are nlroidy nacd in Lincoln
and other towns In the state.
Just northoait of the art hall and in a
tasty looking private exhibition building
of Fremont , Neb. , has an exhibit , if it
may eo bo oilled , of the manner in which
ho manufactures overalls aud like gar-
moats , Mr. Fuhrman is ono of the sub-
atautUl mon of Fiomont , and ,
for that matter , the state.
For years ho haa carried
on a wholojalo and retail dry goods houao
well known throughout the eastern end
western portions of Nebraska. Ills
enorpy and enterprise have boon the
mean * which have mada him a rhh man.
Something llko a year ago Mr. Fuhrai&n
decided to start n overall factory in con
nection with hla wholesale business , and
be put lu the necessary machinery to no-
couiplish this end. From the start the
venture was a success , and at present the
capacity of the factory Is taxed tp its
utmost to supply a demand which reaches
out over the west. Besides overalls Mr.
Fuhrman alto mskes jsan pints ,
shirts , fnll duck suits and
several other articles of apparel which
are used by farmers , minors , and stock-
men. The exhibit at the fair grounds ,
while no evidence of what the factory at
Fremont is , affords instruction and satis
faction to those who are Interested in the
growth and improvement of our wonder-
lul young state. Mr. F. W. Hlpko ,
foreman of the factory , has charge ot the
working people here. This gentleman
has na extensive oxparlonoe In eastern
cltlcr , and betides this Lo Is an ngreu-
able gentlemen , with whom it is a pleas
ure to meet , Visitors at tbo fair should
not fill to oill at the building and look it
over. Anyone who has ever met Mr.
Fnbrmau will bear ont the BEF. in tbo
assertion that ho li n man who under
takes a thing only to make it a IUCCOBB ,
and for that reason this ovoraU factory
will beo'jrno one of the leading manufac
tories of the ntato.

Lend cries for help in the vicinity ol
Fourteenth and Harnoy strcota about 11
'clock last night attracted the attention
f Officer Jaraen O'Boylo , who was aland-
ng on the opera homo corner. Ho Im
mediately ran In the direction of the
ouud and found nn old man lying on
bo ground who Bald ho had boon robbed.
The officer B W the form of a
woman running np Hatnoy
troot and garo chaso. Between Six-
oenth and Seventeenth streets the fugl-
Lvo disappeared in the roar of eomo of
the buildings , but was followed by the
Qiccr and captured back of the rosldenco
f E.V. . Nash. When bronght into the
ght the discovery was made that the
obbor was not a woman , but a man In
emalo attire. When captured ho was In
ho act of divesting hitmolf of the fuss ,
eathors and furbelows in which ho
iad boon masquerading , and had partially
ucoacdod. lie was marched to police
teadquartors , and , completely dives ted
f all the womanly top gory , ho was roo-
galzad as a brother of the notorious
alored proitltuto known as "Johnnie
Bull. "
The old man whom ho had robbad put
nan appearance and said that the wo
man-man had snatched hla pocktt book ,
ontalnlng $188 , and ran. The officers ,
10Tfover , failed to find It when searching
10 prisoner , tut succeeded in making
ilm toll what ho had done with it. Ho
aid that ho had thrown it In the bane-
ment stairs of the Withnell bulldlog as
10 ran past , and subsequent nearoh at the
) hca Indicated was rewarded by the find-
ng of the pocket bsok with the money
mtonclicd. The prisoner was then
ockod np. Ho gnvo his name as "Doo

ppearud dafiant and eald ho was willing
o take the consequences of his crlmo.
The man who was robbed is William
rant , a farmer , of Columbus , Nebraska ,
lo la over 80 years of ORO and is on his
way to his homo In Columbus from a tripe
o Ireland. Ho arrived In the city yes-
; erdny morning and concluded to romaln
ver until to-day to see aomo friends. Ho
id not find thorn , however , and Intona-
d to atop over night at a hotel. Last
vening ho took a walk on the street for

orsets , skirts and a wig. Underneath
he dross ha wore a pair cf pants and on

acket and a jaunty hat gave him
ivory appearance of a colored
ady out to make a mash ,
ut when relieved of all hla finery ho
roeontod a very common ovory-day aa-
„ > ect. He had evidently taken consider-
, blo palna with his toilet , and iras relnc-
ant to have the harmony of his appear *
anco destroyed by the officers. They
considered , however that pants and an
undershirt w BB good enough for a high
way robber , and the moro delicate ap-
larol were removed and placed in a heap
in the floor , none of the men at the

: all to your notice a elur ( In chapter II ) upon
a number of your readers and admiters o
alur as unmerited by the Jtwish people ns it
is unworthy of the author. It is not nlone
upon tha Ignorant and uncultured ot the Jowa

ords Dhow , of that class which depreciated the

The introduction of the lines in question
cannot even bo excused on the ground that it
serves a literary purpose , for no such end is
accomplished. Too sentiment ia violently
dragged in for no other afcertalnablo reason
than to pander to a prejudica against which
nil eduQ.tud ( and colored Jews must battle.
The literary leaders of a country have so great
a power in fomenting or in reprceaintr popular
prejudice that I ruako bold to hopethnt in thn

"Wo Onllfornlacs never lire of talking
about tbo eventful days of ' 40 , when the
great gold fever spread over the state , "
said an old business man. ono of the or
iginal Argonauia , to a San FrancitoD cor
respondent the othtr day. "There was
something In th&t life that man taking
put in it novcr forgets , I wna ono who
had the 'gold fever' at that time and
'roughed It' with hundredn of othcra in
the exciting hunt for the glittering
metal. As a result everything about ' 40
bojonica of particular Interoit to us. "
The speaker had in his hand the account
of n visit just made to the lo
cality whore gold was first discovered
In the state. The region fs the "divide"
between the north end mlddlo forks of
the Amer'can river. It Is an area of not
more than ten mlles tquaro , yet in it is
mot with every form ot gold-bearing de
posit found lu the ettUo , and within Its
limits have occurred some of the most
romantic incidents and tragic events con
nected with the mining history of Cali
fornia's pioneer days. Ono of the meat
interesting spots Is Todd'a valley , whclh
belongs to the portion of the divide
known as Forest hill. The writer was
ono of the gold-ssoken who visited the
locality In ' 40 , and had a personal ac
quaintance with the characters ho rpeiks
of. Ho says :
"Long will the packer and othora , who
In ' 40 traveled up and down thla divide ,
have roiBOQ to ramcmbor Todd'a valley ,
not for the reason that any special good
luok or dlro calamity there happened to
them , but because tnis rrtuj the only place
where a whlto woman anl frolicking chil
dren , and dcgs , and cits , and cows could
bo cucn , and n equaro meal obtained nt
Lhob day. These were comforts all made
possible , and EO brought within the reach
: f the ' 49er , by Jim Williams , who , In
: ho summer of ' 48 , leaving S.vntn Cruz
and taking with him his family aud do
mestic animals , repaired to thla valley
nnd there put up a stockade cabin , whoio
nan r.nd boast were afterward cutertntnod
n royal style. Jim Williams was a Mis
ocutian by birth , but , having killed
a man in h's ' native atato found It
oxpedlon * to emigrate. This ho did ,
irst going to Indian Territory and later
coming to California. In this killing ho
waa not altogether tn blame , but enough
to blumo to render farther residence in
ils own home uncomfortable ; hoaco his
remuvnl. But in coming away Williams
waa not the man to IOE.VO hh family ba-
! iind. Ho gathered them up , oven to hla
mother-in-law aud his wife's two eiatcrs ,
very comely maidens , and bronght them
ou : Into the wilderness with him. His
cabin being the only place in the whole
country wluro a Christian meal conld bo
hud , few going up or down the ridge ever
pnasod without calling. The r.salt was
th t Willlama made mcnsy , so much eo
that the next year he sold ont Iho place
to ono Dr. Todd. "
The writer paid a visit io several of the
historic epota In this vicinity. Referring
to tnorn ho says : "L'oited on the mid
dle fork near its junction with the main
river , is Murderer's Bar. Oa this six
young mon from Oregon were killed by
the Indians in Msy 1840. Further np
on the south fork , near Kelsoy's dig
ging ? , ono of Kolacy'n brothers was In
like manner killed tbo same year. By
roasm of thesa and other murders com
mitted by the Indiana , n party wont ont
from Sutler's mill , and having corralod a
lot of the Bavp.gos , brought them in to
the mill , where , after a serf of trUlsoma
dozen or moro were shot. Near hire , a
lit. la further south , Is the scene of the
famous old mill , where gold waa first dis
covered in California , There is alee the
town of Greenwood , in Gtocnr/ood's
valley , both earned after old Jim Green
wood , about the beat specimen of o
mountaineer and trapper that ever wore
a buckskin hunting ehirt and moccasins.
la the upring of ' 1810 Greenwood
wes living with his family ,
which consisted mainly of numerous
horses , a retinue of dogs and sivoral boys
at the old mill , where he waa a noted
character both becausj of his striking
personal appoaranca and the largo quan
tities of whisky ho was capable ot con
suming without any visible effect. He
had Kfi his homo in Mlssciul when a
youth and bad spent his whole after life
In the service of the various far compa
nies , hunting and trapping in the Kocky
mountains , having alao served as a guard
to some of the expedition ! cent ont by
the general gonornmont to explore tha
regions of the great northwest. Though
over 70 years ot ago when living at the
mill , ho got about with the cglllty > f
youth , and could still handle his rifU
with unening precision. His boys by
hlalnOhu wlfo , a Crow wtiuan , wera
handaamo , " bright llttlo follows. The
town of Greonwocd has shared the faio
common to so many of the early settle
ments In the mining roglone. "
A number of the graves of men who
died in ' 40 in that region ware visited by
ho writer. "A little balow Tcdd'd val
ey , " ho writes , "Is Jack Growy's grave.

Further np the middle fork , but on the

In conversation with a gentleman connrctec'
with Ucckwlth , Qtiinn & Oo.'s ranch , a UBI

egarding this great cattle firm and thcli
method ) , Their main ranch is located in
western Wyoming , on Bear river. Tha com'
mny has ths control of a rnngo west of the
Iver sixteen by twenty miles , and about the
amo extent of country on the east , It is ca-
Itna ed that this orna will support during
ha summer months , at least fifteen thouiand
icad of cattle. During the wmtcr the stock
s bronght down Into the valley of tlio river ,
where they nro well caredfor , Itishorethatwe

lie present proprietors bought the land ( even
