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 almost Insufferable.

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 sion. sion.Charles 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 whole parado. Tlio Horse Hhoxv.

R , Buchanan , the general passenger agent , took In the closing day of the fair. E. D. Murnoll , of the Nebraska City News , complimented Tim BEU hcadquaiters With a call this afternoon. The gate receipts of yesterday show the attendance to hnvo been 41,011. It is said , however , that the "dead heads" would swell the actual attendance to58,000. . 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 , Htuto finnan Jottlnj ; ? . The board of bank examiners were all at their potts to-day , The state house was thronged with visitors from morning until night.

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 Pottery Works. 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. Slonn's GlydcBtlalcs. 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 magnificent two-year-old 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.

The following telegram was received ycv torday by K Chicago1 paper from Its Wash ington correspondent and was forwarded to this city ! "Tho finding In the sensational court- martial nt Omnha ngalnst Lieutenant Colonel Fletcher for conduct .unbecoming an officer and gentleman , hag been reversed , nnd Lieutenant Colonel "Fletcher , whoso son.- tonco was to bo dTsmJsscd from the service , will bo relnstated jThe colonel was con victed by court-mnninl nnd the case then came to Advocate General Llobor , Who , after Inquiring care fully - Into It , bccama convinced that Colonel onol Fletcher was the victim of n conspiracy and determined to right htm. Ho recommended a reversal of the decision , General Schofiold then took up the uaso as senior advocate general of the army , and ap proved General Llobor's ' vlow of It. "General Sohofiold is at present noting sec retary of war , nnd might approve his own llmllnir , but ho prefers to nwalt the return of Secretary Proctor , who will tnko the case to the president. There Is no doubt of his ap proval. " The news was Immediately forwarded to Fort Omaha , where It was variously consid ered by the ofileors nt tlmt place. It was also discussed by the officers nt the headquarters. To verify the statement , In vlow of the fact that the telegram contained some bi- conslatonclns , TUB BEB telegraphed its Washington correspondent und received the following reply : "When Tun Ben correspondent to-day showed General Schoflcld , acting secretary of war , the dispatch announcing that the finding In the Flotchur court-murtml had been rovorscd by the war department , ho said : "Thero Is no foundation for such a statement. Secretary Proctor will act upon the case and ho has never soon the papers , They were sent to mo and have boon nnd are yet in my hundi to bo laid before Sucrotary Proctor when ho returns to Washington.

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.

Hartman , member of the board of flro und police commissioners , has returned from Kansas City , where ho attended the national convention of the lire cbiofa of the United States. Mr. Hartman was highly pleased with the results of his trip. Ho talked with the chiefs of flre departments from Boston , Now York , Detroit , Cleveland , Now Or leans nnd other cities , nnd examined the 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 found opinions nbont evenly divided. The question of substituting wagons for lioso carts was nlso considered , nnd for the most part very favorably by the members of the association. SIXTH WAUU CLUB. The Polltibnl Pot llns Onminonood to 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 reserve fund. 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 tion. 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. Berlin. 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. AMUSIiMENTS. "Tho Brass Monkoy" drew another good audience to Boyd's opera house last night , but it didn't go off as well as nt the first per formance. However , the more ono sees of this comedy the bettor ho likes it. Dodge Work is the cleverest character in "A Brass Monkey , " und Mr. Tim Murphy plays the part to perfection. Ho is a splendid actor. Still. Jonah , ns presented by Charles Drew , Is a quaint , queer old man , and Mr. Hoyt has put ideas into his head us well as sayings into his mouth that make him nttlier interesting. Miss Flora Walsb , ns Bugguge , is just as clover as slio can be , and the three young ladies capture everybody's admira tion. They nro pretty , lively and play their parts well. Miss Bedford , out on her first tour , is ouo of the most charming of all the stage beauties that has ever been seen in Omaha , and gives promise of becoming an artist ill her profession.
