LINCOLN. Sept. 18. )
The proundn to-tiny , compared with yester
day , looked barren. Still , the crowd was
qulto lurgo and the show as good In every
particular ns on the previous days. Proba
bly twenty thousand people attended the
closing tiny of the great fair. The estimate
of good judges , however , pub it 5,000 , less.
Visitors had a much hotter opportunity to
BCO the sights than during the moro crowded
days. Tireless exhibitors stood at their posts
and evinced the usual interest in showing
their attractions. They wore kept In proper
trim in u rotnarkablo degree. The day , how
ever , was the hottest of the week , will had It
not been for a refreshing breeze that sprung
up Just before noon , the heat would have been
Tlio Grand 1'roinluin t'nrndn.
At 11 o'clock this morning the grand pa
rade of premium animals took place in front
of the amphitheater , the headquarters and
Tin ! UKB offlco , from which the anuounco-
monts were made. Prominent fair men ,
whu have soon every state fair west of the
Mississippi for years , say that no such a dls.
play of premium animals have over boon

Fcaturns ol'Thursday's Parade.
The parade of Thursday night was bigger
and bettor in every rospsct than any ono had
anticipated. The "Oh , my ! " of the rural
visitors didn't oven halt toll the talo.
Contain Yooum , mayor of Hastings , de
clared that nothing llko It bad boon soon
west of St. Louis. The Judgment of the mul
titude is that ho was right.
Grand Marshal Boainls , of the traveling
men , declared at tor t ho parade that It was
the happiest moment of his Ufa. Ho was
proud of the boys. His 200 pounds were cov
ered with perspiration , and ho hadn't a dry
thread on him , but ho was Just as happy as
ho could be , as was also Mark H. Tilton , of
tbo Wisconsin Furniture company.
Over six hundred of the boys who make
Nebraska territory were in line Thursday
night bearing torches.
The llrst turnout in the parade was Miat-of
the Union Pncittc , which consisted of a Ufa
sized locomotive ouglue , tender und dining
cur. The flro and suioico which came from
the smoke stack , the whlstlo und the clang
ing of the boll , were realistic enough to tuko
in nvcn those who keep up with tbe proces
Charles J. Daubach and Al Horgreavei ,
who "boro the brunt of tlio buttle" In the
financial work for tbo big parade , are Just ns
huppy us u big sun ilower.
Cblof I'.ooloo and his tribe of Indians con
stituted a lively feature in the parada There
were about sixty of them with their novel
modes of conveyance , their funcKul head
dresses and their wild and wicrd war cries.
To many who had never soon the noble red
man , this was surely the most interesting.
The party of Massachusetts and Connecticut
excursionists who hud ntoppcd ovur | were
charmed with this feature , as well us tbo
Tlio Horse Hhoxv.

In tlio Procession.
There were many nice displays in Thurs
day night's parade , but for novelty and at
tractiveness , there was nothing that excelled -
celled that of the well Known J. I. Case
Threshing Machine company. In the parade
was a number of machines pulled by a trac
tion engine. Each one was neatly orna
mented with the national colors , and in tbo
cab of the engine , which is perfection in
every way , like on a locomotive , was Mr ,
Qua States , the efficient general agent of the
J. 1. Case company's interests in Nebraska.
At intervals along the line Mr. States pulled
the throttle , blowing a shrill whlstlo along
tuo'lmo of march , to herald the coming of
the greatest machines , of their kind , in the
country. This part of the procession was
the recipient of numerous cheers , which
were duly acknowledged by the gentlemen
in charge lifting their huts. The engine was
lu charge of II. A. Crawford and G. E. Hall.
On ouo of the machines was a rather
comical transparency , which bore the picture
of nu eagle , holding In its bill the half-
starved chiolcon which a rival. establishment
has for ita trade mark. The ongle
had the appearance of being a
fiuo , largo bird , and the general
inference ono would take from seeing the
picture was that the great bird wus "mon
arch of all ho surveyed , " und awaiting now
victories. The fact is , the J. I. Case thresh
ers uro so well known that ovary ono who
been the piclura know full well the moaning.
This extensive manufacturing company
have their Nebraska headquarters in Lin
coln. where they also have a largo and com
modious warehouse , from which they ship
to all points In this section on short notlco
any of their goods or thu repairs. It might
bo well to nay a word for these celebrated
threshers were they not already so well
Known , but let it suffice to say that in the
showing made at the present fair the Cuso
threshers once more como out ahead with
llyliig colors , and us usual the industrious
farmer felt well repaid for the troubio of
coining to the fair by seeing the workings of
these favorite farm necessities and the now
Improvements recently mado. Mr , States
wus on hand to enlighten the visitors with
such Information as was moat Interesting
and appreciated ,

Tlio Most Attractive Exhibit on the
Not a visitor at the state fair , unless ho
was especially Interested , but what voted
the exhibit mndo by Saunders county the
most attractive on the grounds. Hare taste ,
combined with practical Ingenuity , helped
out with skillful fingers , produced some
novelties which drew nnd held the crowd ,
and during .tho whole week It was dillleult
to got any ways nojr tholr exhibit. The ex
hibit was In charge of Mr. Samuel Woolloy ,
n practical farmer , who lives near Weston ,
nnd everything raised In Nebraska in the
agricultural or horticultural line were there
In great profusion nnd of superior quality.
Corn , oats , wheat , vegetables , tobacco ,
sugar cane , potatoes , etc. , etc. , with buck-
oycs , butternuts , cranberries , und many
other novelties. The "Korn King , " the
work of Mrs. J. S. Kuyhors , of Wnhoo , as
sisted , byMrs. . Jacob Stowots nnd Mrs.
Gcrtio Henderson , nnd the "Grass Widow , "
made by Mrs. Perry Hnydon nnd Mrs.,11. C.
Heudley , of Wcston ; the big horseshoe of
grains , the big rooster und the corn baby
were the chief attractions on the grounds ,
THJfl lilTJljia IIUOWN JOG.
By Entoii Brothers , of the Lincoln
Twenty years ngo there was no moro popu
lar song than the "Littlo Brown Jug. "
Every body sung it , and they all sung it
well , because It was easy to slug. For some
time , lllto "Tho Beautiful Snow , " Its author
ship was wrapped in the blackest of mystery.
But this doubt remains no longer ; the real
authors are the Eaton Brothers , of * the Llu
colu Pottery works , and it la said , though ho
denies it , that the niece wus sot to music by
Wobator Eaton himself. But this is abso
lutely true : No exhibit on the state fair
grounds attracted moro attention than the
ono Just north of Art hall , where the little
brown jug was mndo ; no souvenir was moro
generally worn , or will bo moro highly
prized by the visitors , than this little brown
Jug , und no better pottery goods are to bo
found on the market that the crockery ,
stone ware , Ilower pots , etc. , manufactured
by the Lincoln Pottery works.
Millar's Clycles and Porohnrons.
E. C. Millar , of Fullerton , Nance county ,
ono of the best known and most prominent
draft horse importers m the west , , bus ' good
reason to rejoice and bo glad. Ho
exhibited four horses nt the
state exposition and captured the
first premium for 3-year-old Clyde stal
lions , second fur 2-year-old Clyde stallions ,
llrst for Clyde mares of any ago , sweepstakes
for Clyde stallions , sweepstakes for Clyde
marcs and sweepstakes for Percheron stal
lions. The awards attest Mr. Millar's Judg
ment. Although a young man , ho has made
his mark as a breeder and Importer , and his
exhibit is of the purest blood ot the standard
bred class In which ho takes a Just degree of
pride. Ho was born and raised amonc the
heaths of Scotland , from whence the Clyde
originates , and his professional aptness
illustrates the old saying that "xvbat's born
in the bono is hard to tuko out of the flesh. "
Nanco county has reason to feel highly hon
ored in her champion of the Clyde and
Perchoron. Bazaar Chief nnd Dusty Mil
lar , tbo Clydcs , Jlp , tbo Clydo mare , Mont
Louts , the Percheron , are of handsome form
and color and beilr every mark of the famous
draft horses of their class.
Watson's Horse Exhibit.
No stud of horses has attracted wider at
tention on tbo grounds than that ot Joseph
Watson & Co. , of Beatrice , who bid hard
but did not beg for the sweepstakes. As ono
of the firm's attendants put it , "The com
pany took all of tbo premiums at Omaha. "
Hero the company took first on Nallstono
Aristocrat , and every horse was in the
"short lout" when the premium awards
were made. Second was taken on King
Passion in the "ago" class. Second also on
King Henry In the two-year-olds. Mr. Wat
son's ' exhibit was oxclnsivo English Shire.
Finer bred draft horses cannot bo found in
the west. Ho has been In the Importing
business for six years past , with headquar
ters nt Beatrice , und is ono of the oldest and
best known horse mon in the state or west.
Anyone comg to his stables are always sure
to find Shires of the finest class on hand.
Caldcr , a beautiful light bay stallion with
whlto points , took the first premium for the
best two-year-old of his class. The sire of
Calder is Laird , of Logan , ho by Old Times.
The latter horse was the winner of many
highland and agricultural society prizes.
The Laird of Logan's dam was bred by J.
Campbell , Craichmore , and has rare blood.
Crown Prince , Riro of Calder's ' dam , gained
the Glasgow pri/o in 1873. Ho is by Loch
Fergus Champion. Crown Princo's dam is
sired by the Prince of Wales , the finest horse
In Scotland. This
Calder is owned by Aleu Sloan , of Unuclllla ,
Otoe county , who imported him , and by
many ho was considered the finest horse on
the ground. Mr , Sloan exhibited several
other horses of loss merit , but which are
liltoly to prove useful breeders , and ho Is becoming -
coming prominently known as mi importer In
the southeastern partof the state.
Omaha fliiBlnegg Colloiro.
The Omaha business college was repre
sented by Prof. G. T. Ratbbun , who had a
splendid exhibit of beautiful pen work of
largo dimensions. Ho carried oft the first
premium on plain penmanship over all com
petitors. Tbo popular business college ho
BO efficiently represented grows la popularity
from day to day , and ranks among the vary
best institutions of the kind In thn wost.
Prof. liathbun states that the matriculants
from term to term show a marked increase.
Comparison Solicited , A wise dis
crimination should bo exorcised by nil
who talco medicine. The proprietors of
Hood's Stirsaparilla solicit a careful
comparison ot this medicine- with other
blood purifiers and inoillclnes , bulnpr
confident tlmt the peculiar merits of
Hoods Sarriupurllla nro so upparont that
the people will unliesitiitiiiLrlv prefer it
to nny other propurntion. Hood's Sar-
sttparilla is not a mixture of molasses
uad a few inert roots uud lioi-ba , but it is
u peculiar cuiicontrutod extract of the
best alterative nnd blood purifying rom-
cdics of the vegetable kingdom , The
enormous sales of Hood'a Sarsupnrilla
nod \\onilorful euros olTeotod , prove
oven mare than hati boon claimed for
this medicine. If you are sick the best
medicine is none too good. Therefore
talco Hood's Sarsuparilla.

Mr. Coburn Making It In Ills Cases
Sheriff Coburn will probably fllo his suit
against the commissioners to-day and the
Judges say they will hoar it in chambers any
day next week which may bo agreed upon.
It is hoped also by the sheriff that County
Attorney Mahoney Will make up nnd file the
suit against him so that both cases can bo
hoard at the same time ,
It is whispered in outside circles that Mr.
Coburn' s anxiety to imvo u final disposition of
this matter is baaed on political reasons.
A-frlend of his said this morning that if the
court decides against- him it will croatly in
jure his chances fo ? a renomlnatlon , but if
ho wins the victory is bound to benefit us
well as increase his chances. It Is thought
that on the result depends his future action ,
whether ho will continue to bo a candidate
or withdraw entirely from the race.

results of his trip. Ho talked with the
chiefs of flre departments from Boston ,
Now York , Detroit , Cleveland , Now Or

latest inventions in machinery and nnpll-
ancefl used for flro fighting. He examined
especially the difforqnt , makes of fire hose
and secured the opinions of the flro chiefs
from other cities 'upon the comparative
merits of rubber and fabric flro hose. Ita

SIXTH WAUU CLUB.

Doll In Thrtt Itody.
The Sixth ward republican club hold its
regular mooting lost night. Very liltlo busi
ness was transacted , although there was
considerable quiet work going on ,
It was decided that the prize money ro-
colvod from the Merchants' Week associa
tion should bo turned Into tbo treasury ns a
A number of small bills were ordered paid.
The matter of the creating of a third pro-
clnct In the ward , which hnd been referred
to n committee consisting of the two councilmen -
men from the Sixth ward , was expected to
como up for report , but nothing was heard of
It , The residents of the western part of the
ward uro very anxloui to hnvo a third pre
cinct created , but the probabilities nro thut
the matter will bo engineered so ns to deprive
thorn of this privilege until after the elec
It became Known that an emissary of
Mllco Lee was pronont with a resolution
already prepared , which ho was prepared to
sprlnc on the club , endorsing Lee ai candi
date for the shrievalty. A resolution was
prepared nnd mtrodupcd before the Leo
delegate could got in a word , declaring It to
bo the sentiment of the club that no candi
date for n county offlco bo endorsed by the
club. Thisblocitcd the g.imoof thoLco man ,
nnd ho withdrew in dt gust.
The members ot the club fool very sore
ever the manner In which the board
of education ignored their recommenda
tion for a successor to Mr. Mlllard , The
club hold n mooting some time ngoundroc-
ommondcd Mr. Howard Kelsey ns tholr
choice for a representative , nnd so intimated
to the members of the board , They are dis
gusted with the manner in which their rec
ommendation was Ignored. Ono member
said last night : "If the board hud elected a
man from another ward wo wouldn't hnvo
thought so muchubout , It , but they took a
Sixth ward man , and ouo whom the club hac )
refused to endorse. "
There were numerous throats of n wholesale -
sale knifing when It comes to another elec
tion of members for the board of education.
The feeling ngnlnst ono member of the
board in particular is very bitter. It Is
charged that this member opposed Kelsey on
purely personal grounds.
Thu Fourth Ward Republicans.
The annual meeting of the Fourth Ward
Republican club was hold last evening at the '
olllco of Judge Gustavo Anderson and was
qulto largely attended. After the admission
of several staunch republicans to member
ship und the transacting of other routine
business , the election of officers for the en
suing term was the order of business , re
sulting in the unanimous election of Thomas
1C. Sudborough for president. R D. Duncan
was elected vice president , Ed Whitchorn
secretary and Peter Sharkoy treasurer ,
The next order of business was the elect
ing of delcgatns to the state convention of
re-publican clubs , which will bo hold In Hast
ings early next month , resulting as follows :
D. H. Wheeler , W. F. Gurloy and R , S.
Much enthusiasm was manifested and the
unanimity of the vote for president was evidence -
donco anough that there will bo very little
factlontsm In the Fourth Ward Republican
club during the forthcoming campaign.
