NOIITII PLATTR. Neb. . Oct. 12. ( Special
Telegram. ) The most gangulno expectations
of the ( air management imvo been much
in or i ! tlmn realized In today's demonstration.
On all avenues loading to thu city the
stream of people formed continuous processions -
cessions for a day mid a half. Onn farmer
aald that over 1,500 people passed his farm
There were more than 15,000 people on the
Mrectn of North 1'lntto thla morning to
watch the passing of HutTalo mil's big pa
rade. It wus magnificent and as Colonel
Cody paused the crowd there wan a con
tinuous ovation from the people.
Immediately after this parade came the
civic parade to the fair grounds for the
purpose of opening the fair. The management -
mont of the parade made a bungling mistake
and left the Midway band of Kearney , the
official band of the fair , behind awaiting
the orders of the marshal of the day which
orders never came and thof did no : march.
The marshal formed the parade a block from
the center of town and marched It straight
from the elty so that many of the masses
of the people walling did not see It. This
was the cau.io of the leaving behind of the
Kearney band , as It was itatloi'ud down
where the people were.
With this slight confusion everything
passed off smoothly. The parade was headed
by the Lexington Lady Cadets and the
Gordon Silver Cornet band of North 1'latte.
The parade contained Governor Holcomb ,
the officials of the State Hoard of Agricul
ture and the nfUdals of the Irrigation Fair
association. When the parade reached the
grounds It was found that Cody's show
had taken the crowd and thu exercises were
postponed until after the show. After the
show the formal opening took placo.
President I'ark Introduced A. O. Wolfcn-
bargor , who In a short but excellent ad
dress spoke of the honors Nebraska had
jilrcody attained In the political field and
declared that It now had the honor of hav
ing ' rirst Irrigation fair over held on

This morning the excursion trains from
both the cast and the west , as well an the
mldnlglit trains , last night , wcro loaded
with human beings to sec the monster show
at North I'latto this week. All night long
there was a constant stream of wagons from
the country. Many coming In wagons from
thu southern part of the state , and many
finni the west and northwest. North I'latte
never In UH history saw so many people.
Although the nights are a llttlo chilly for
tenting , better fair weather could not' be
nuked for. The Midway band of Kearney , the
olllclal ha ml of the fair , arrived yesterday ,
and In tlm afternoon rendered a very flue
concert to a large assemblage of peo-
plu In front of the Union Pacific depot.
Iluffnlo Illll arrived yesterday , and the
Ktreets of North I'latto are jammed with a
jn.iKs of tmrglng humanity waiting for the
cqlnnel'B monster parade to appear. Colonel
Cody Is In excellent spirits , and feels very
pfoud of the magnificent reception which
was ICE \red him on hU arrival In this city.
The Interest In the bicycle races Is In-
ireaslng each day. Most of the big riders
) f Nebraska , Colorado and Wyoming have
ntereil. Harry Page of Denver will be
eferee and life Judges will he chosen outside
> f North I'latte. Everything will be on
.he square and all riders will be given a
"sijuaro deal. " Among those entered arc
( lanks. Coulter , Pynchon and Hlmstrcct of
Denver , Kramer and McCall of Omaha ,
iJreen and Sumption of Cheyenne , Maxwell
mil Gadkc , and Larson , the "Terrible
Tomorrow Is Ancient Order of United
Workman day. This order has erected a
large tent on the fair grounds forty by
eighty feet In extent. In the morning a
parade will bo formed In thu city and pro
ceed Immediately to the fair grounds , where
addresses will be made by Supreme Grand
Master Workman Talc , Orand Lecturer Van
Dyke and Hoir. II. M. Grimes of Noilh
E'latte. In the afternoon at the race
track there will be on the horse track
i throe-mlnuto trot and a quartur-mllo dash ,
ind on thu bicycle track there will be four
svents In the amateur class and two In
! ho professional class. The fair exhibits In
ill departments were In place this morn-
Ing. It can be truly said that the associa
tion has not neglected this part of Its show
to put all of Its efforts Into the speed ring ,
which Is too often the case In many of our
lo-called fairs. All of the departments are
FUUITS AND VKGETAULKS.
The agricultural and horticultural hall
presents an exhibit of which any community
In tlio crtinlry may be proud. Perhaps
the greatest surprise that greets the visitor
la the horticultural exhibit In charge of W.
W. Hugo , superintendent. This display Is
made up entirely of Lincoln county fruit ,
from the farms of II. Utlen. Charles Tolllion
and William Roberts. There are very fine
displays of numerous varieties of applet ,
mid a very creditable display of grapes ,
plums and peaches. In the agricultural de
partment excellent displays arc In from
Lincoln. Uawson , DulTalo , Keith , Frontier.
Cheyenne and Scotia Illuff counties. Lincoln
county has the entire north end and east
wing of the building. Its exhibit Is divided
Into four departments , that of the Paxton
and Sutherland canal , the North I'latte
canal , the IJIrdwood canal , and the upland
exhibit. All kinds of Irrigated products from
these canals are tastily arranged. The prqd-
ucts froir the uplands , which depended en
tirely on the heavens for Its moisture , com
pares very favorably with tho.u from the
Irrigation districts. The early Irish pota
toes shown by George Hughes cannot bo
nxccllcd. Wiley Mathews from the baud
hilt country has Immense watermelons. The
Illrdwood canal has a China squash weigh
ing 110 pounds. However , Scotts Hluft
county Dhows a similar squash weighing
Perhaps the neatest , best arranged anil
finest county exhibit Is the one from Dawson
county This Is the same display which
that county had on exhibition at thu state
fair at Omaha , which attracted so much at
tention , and \vhlch caused a great deal or
comment because It did not receive recogni
tion at the hands of the judges at that fair.
Their small grain certainly excels any
that Is In tha building. They have beets
weighing twenty-six pounds ; there Is also
un excellent display of sweat potatoes and
peanuts. This exhibit occupies fifty feet
of space on thu west sideof tha building
In thu south wing. It has an excellent
show" for first premium.
For an exhibition of scientific farming
the display from the State Industrial school
at Kearney can hardly bo excelled. The
exhibits occupies forty feet of space just
across the way from that of Uawson county.
Thuy Imvo fifty varieties of garden seeds In
half-bushel-lots , and eight varieties of green
onions. There Is corn raised on land fifty
feet above the I'latto bottoms , which can
not bo beat on Irrigated lands. Their ex
cellent celery , egg plants , timothy , millet
and grasses may also bo seen.
INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL WOIUC.
The Industrial School also has on exhibi
tion a very flno display of the open work
of Its pupils , There uru hanging on the
walls excellent India Ink portraits of Major
McKlnlcy. Senator Thurstca. Generals Garfield -
field and Harrison. There are portraits of

LINCOLN , Oct. 12. ( Special. ) Up to the
hour of 5 p. in. today the Lincoln police

breaker will recover ; ho says the next two
or three days must tell the tale , as there
Is still danger of acute Inflammation set
Leonard , or Frcnchy , as he Is generally

formerly lived hci-o and was on very Inti
mate relations with the Fedawa girls , but

He arrived at the Fcdawa house about 10

police believe that Jay told Frenchy tha :
Uuchlcr was out there with the former's
wife ami that Frenchy went out fully In

An adjourned ncs-ilon of the Omaha Pres
bytery met yesterday afternoon In tin ? par
lors of the First I'rcsbyterlan church of this
city. Dr. A. O. Wllsou acted as moderator.
Thirty ministers of the denomination wcro
In attendance. The session toward Its later
hours took on a humorous turn , which com
pelled even the most sedate of the ministry
try present to" indulge In a good-n.aturcd
"This Is quite unusual. ' I think the whole
procoedlnfi Is out of order. " Hcv. S. M.
Ware of the Second Presbyterian church
matte this observation to the presbytery
with somewhat of a reproving air. Then
the presbytery nettled down to business
again. It was that of dUposIng of the
claims of M. nostrum , who had asked to
b > received Into the Presbyterian Thcolosl-
eal aetnlnary for preparation for the minis-
tr ; ' .
Vhen the moderator called Mr. Hostrom
forward for the usual examination as to the
grounds of his faith In Christianity , a young
man , 29 years of age , stepped forward and
readily answered the knotty theological
questions propounded. He had not had -a
college education , however , and Dr. Kerr
called attention to this fact and stated that
It behooved the presbytery to act advisedly
In all such special cases which might arise.
This precipitated a discussion and Mr. Hos-
trom retired. A member of the presbytery
started the difficulty by remarking that Mr.
liostrom was reported to bo engaged tea
a young Swedish woman. Aa It la ngalnst
the rules of the seminary that young theo
logical students shall enter a state of matri
mony whllo preparing to preach the gospel
ho thought the presbytery should have all
the facts before It before acting.
WAY OUT OV THK DIFFICULTY.
Dr. Hnrslia at once arose and stated that
It was true ho had been Informed that
the young woman's father had volunteered
to pay the couple's bills , Dr. Lower stated
that ho understood that thu prospective fath
er-in-law had only agreed to pay the bride's
expenses. Dr. Wilson said that ho believed
this matter should be settled by the pres
bytery , to whlrh Dr. McCormlrk rejoined
that It would settle Itself. He , as a member
of the educational committee , would recom
mend Mr. nostrom for acceptance. Dr.
Harsha stated that ho believed that the
young man had not fully made up his mind
mid ho thought ho could yet bo persuaded
to forego marriage for the present. The good
natureil observations naturally started an
audible smllo about the room.
It was at this point that Dr. Ware called
on his brother ministers to drop the sub
ject. A vote was then taken and Mr. Uoa-
troin was unanimously accepted for the
seminary as a special student , the hopu
being expressed that ho would prove a use
ful worker among his own countrymen.
Other business transacted by the presby
tery before adjourning consisted in the ordi
nation of Prof Mitchell of Ilellevuo college.
The ordination prayer was delivered by Dr.
Huraha and the charge by Dr. Kerr of
tlollevuo college. Prof. Wilson took as tbo
subject of his thesis "What It Is to He a
Christian. " Dr. Kcrr In making his charge
said that the minister Is to preach Christ ,
because Christ must bo the center of his
life. Also , ho said , the minister must know
Christ. Ho iMist also know men In all their
various phases of life.
QODSPE13D TO A NEW FIELD.
The evening session of the presbytery ,
which was called to order at 7:30 : o'clock ,
was partially In the nature of a godspeed to
Dr. Alexander D. Wilson , who will sail for
India on November 14 as a medical mission
ary In that country , to do hospital work.
Ho will there Join a brother , who Is now
laboring In the missionary field.
Dr. Wilson himself read a paper upon
the duties and the character of the medical
missionary , together with a brief account of
the work that has already been done by
him In the evangelistic Held. Ho showed
In the first place from the scriptures that
the Redeemer had largely made use of the
art of healing when hy was on earth , and
that the power of curing diseases had also
liee-i given to the apostles. The evident
object In this had been to secure the atten
tion of the people in order to teach tin-
truths of God.
Dr. Wilson maintained that the medical
missionary must be of the highest proficiency
In his profession and specially suited to
perform evangelistic work. If he were n
physician of the best attainment ] ho can
bccomo almost a gcd In the opinion of the
heathen amongst whom lie Is living , and In
that manner can touch their hearts with
the divine truths which It is his duty to
Implant In their souls. At first his work
must bo done largely In his own room upon
the patients that arc brought to him , but as
ho Inspires confidence his sphere Is enlarged
to a public dlsptnsary , and then to a hos
The- speaker stated that the value of the
medical missionary had been appreciated
only within the last forty years. In that
time ho showed that such a missionary had
done more than any other to open the
heathen world to Christianity and civiliza
tion. As examples he Instanced Japan ,
forca , China and India.
The response to the address wns made by
llev. J. I ) . Kerr , who dwelt upon the re-
Hponslblllty that rested upon the medical
missionary. Hi" said that the gospel did
not first make mention of preaching , hut of
curing , and then he went on to show that
the healing art had a great part In the
evangelistic work In the days of Christ and
In these of the apcatleo Immediately follow
ing. He spoke especially of Luke , who had
been a physician. In his opinion the medi
cal missions were the key to many hearts
and many homes that could not be otherwise
Speaking more directly to Dr. Wilson Ilov.
Kerr stated that the medical missions were
doing moro than any other branch of the
mission work In breaking down the awful
sjstem of caste In India. This reoulted from
the fact that high and low wcro treated
alike , and were gathered together In the
dispensaries and hospitals by the reports
that the cures spread aboutt Ho closed with

MEDICAL MISSIONARIES FEW.
Dr. C. 11. McAfeo of the'Hoard of Foreign
Missions congratulated the presbytery upon
Bending on1 a medical missionary. Ho said
that they were few In. numbers and were
very badly needed In tbe foreign fields. He
stated that the country was being scoured
for them , but that great difficulty wns being
found In discovering physicians who were
capable of performing evangelistic work.
Upon n suggestion from Dr. McAfee n
resolution was passed calling upon the
churches In the presbytery to take special-

The request of the Valley church to sep
arate from the church at Waterloo was
granted , hut not without dUcu3.ilon. Many
of tbe ministers were of the opinion that
the churches could do n greater work by
combining In obtaining a pastor. It ap
pears , however , that neither church drains
an afternoon service , and the Valley congre
gation has taken a stand that If they must
put up with ouch services they will leave
the church. Pastor-r.t-Large Ilraden was
appointed moderator of the session.
Ilov. McCormlck of the First Presbyterian
