liousuuds who visited the fair grounds. Im
mediately after the trades' display in the
city , which ended nt 12 o'clock , the inultl-
udos headed for the fair grounds , and every
available motor , grip and horse car was
brought Into use.The strain on every line
ivas enormous. Knowing ones sought ad
vantage by going on Tenth street to inter
cept the cable lines , but found them crowded
even there , although n threo-mmuto service-
was used. The motor cnra were so badly
crowded that force had to bo re
sorted to .m several instances
; o prevent passengers already aboard
[ rom being crushed by these desiring to ba
among the first on tbo ground. Cars won )
run every few minutes and all wore
crowded. Many passengers walked as far
us Cass street to catch" the empty cars re
turning from the groutlds und paid double
hire for the privilege ? of securing transporta
tion to the grounds. Che consolidated com
pany had a full force of "uorso cars running
north from Lake atreei'to accommodate the
fair patrons of the dablo. The crush was
awful. Women and children rode on the
steps , clinging to tbo occupied seats aud
suffering all kinds ot ihcouvculonco for the
purpose of gutting to tbo. fair. Keep a pro
cession like this moving for three hours , cars
running every three nuiiutsi and all crowded
and a faint idea is secured of the vnstnoss
of the crowd that was on the fair grounds nt
3 o'clock. Breathing spaca wns nil that was
allowed to those who got inside the amphi
theater gate , nnd oven thai wns given be-
grudgingly. The crowd encircled the entire
truck. It was estimated by competent
Judges that fully BO.UOO people visited the
grounds during the day.
The displays In the various departments
yesterday attracted great attention. The
exhibit of flowers in the floral ball is the
finest over made iu the county. Promi
nent among the exhibitors are A. Hodges ,
W. H. Foster , W. J. Hessor , C. Erllinger ,
O'Hansun and S. B. Stewart. Tbo displays
consist of ferns , palms , L'O run I urns and -an
endless variety of both foliage and blooming
plants , aud exquisite pieces of ornamenta
tions made from cut flowers.
Hall No. 3 is entirely taken up with a dls
play of Nebraska grown fruits aud seeds
that Is really line. The seeds can not bo
beaten in tbo world , and the fruits displayed
rival the products of tbo Callfornias. The
farm products , especially 'the exhibits made
by Washington county , are magnificent and

THKY TOOK A TU.MBIjE.
A. Shod nt the Knir Grounds Palls
With thn Drummer * .
The traveling men wore king boos at the
fair grounds yesterday afternoon. At 1
o'clock , according to the previously ar
ranged programme , they boarded n special
train at the Webster street depot and In ton
minutes wore whirled to their point of
destination , wnoro many thousand people
welcomed them , nnd the association ex
tended the freedom of the entire exhibition.
With many thousand thanks and much good
feeling they accepted both , and sailed
In for for a merry tlmo. It Is
useless to attempt to argue that they did
not have it , because they did. In one in
stance , at least , the boys not only attracted
special attention but created some excite
ment. About i00 ! of them , accompanied by
their lady friends , bad snugly seated them
selves on a temporary shod just west of the
grand stand , which permitted them to have
un excellent view of the track , and from
where tbov exported to witness the races.
But this expectation' proved to bo a sorry
disappointment. During the bum of con
versation uud laugliter , timbers began to
crack , tbo shed began to fall , and such n
scrambling of men aud 'women as was wit
nessed for about two minutes has not boon
equaled in many n day. . Fortunately the ac
cident hud no Borlous rcsulU. The shod was
relieved of its weight so quickly that It only
fell partially down. "

lined a dozen or moro deep half way arounc
the track , whllo the homestretch was a sea
of carriages. The spectators became much
provoked at the needless demy , and mam
tested their displeasure in loud and dls
cordant cries. SUrtor Wheeler , however ,
was In no way responsible for the long wait
but did everything In bis power to get the
races off at the specified time , 1 o'clock. The
owners of the horses nro to blame and nc

Umnhn One Blnr.o nt Itookcts nnd
Such was the exclamation that wont up
from ,000 people , old , young und middle
aged , who gathered In the street near Tlin
Bnn building last night to witness the pyrotechnic
technic display of the Aforchnuts' week car-
It wns the word "Welcome , " In letters of

tnculur events over neon In Oiunhn. As If
by tnngio the air was filled With rockets ,
"devil ntnong the tnlloro , " romau candles ,
flro balloons , llowor pots In short , every
conceivable thing In the line of llroworka
known , Flratitwni u rocket leaping from
its trough to split the air for a hundred feet
or so ntul fill the gloom with .t myriad of
balls of flro ; then n whirligig with Its rapid
revolutions ; next a sot piece , mid then repeat -
peat , until the words "Good Night" Unshed
out and thn mighty throng dispersed.
The dliplny was a grand ono nnd no mis
take , nnd was thoroughly appreciated by nil

shield resting nt her feet , Tim wns es
pecially lino. The eagle , with wings out
spread. wns n work of art of Itself and wiis
greeted with tumultuous npplauso. The Jlg-
uro on horseback wai nlio worthy of especial
mention. Not the lomt by nny means wiw
the flro engine spitting forth flame und
smoke , while the solitary ilrmmm with Ins
Iioso pinved on nn imaginary bhwo. It was
the most lasting piece of the evening nnd
elicited much favorable comment on the part
of the spectators , 'Industry must .thrivo"
wns the motto under a dragon
that spit flro for ten mlnUtos
nnd then subsided. Then tbcro wcro iimm-
inoth pin wheels and lllllputlans and other
