IOWA STATE FAIR BOOMING
Becomes Nsoessarj to Erect Tompararj
Building for Lire Stack,
STANTON ACTING PRESIDENT AT AMES
Board of Trastee Propose to Take
Time to lyook Aroand Before
Selecting Permanent Head
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DE3 MOINES, Aug. 22. (Special.) The
Iowa atate fair wa opened today under
most favorable auspices. Thl I the
forty-eighth annual exhibition of the fair.
The last three season have been very
prosperous with the fair management and
the balance was on the right side In each
case. This year the management has
spent a part of the surplus In permanent
and much needed improvements and the
stat added a special appropriation, out of
which was built the pavilion. A larger
sum was spent on permanent Improve
ments this year than at any one time, since
the fair buildings wer erected and as a
consequence the management la in better
condition to care for the exhibits. The
only plaoe overcrowded now Is the cattle
department. Last year, with nearly 700
entries, It was thought the limit had been
reached, but this year, despite the fact
that a large new barn wa erected, the de
mand for stalls was so great that today
they started the building of an additional
barn to accommodate the cattle. The en
tries are fully equal to those at the cattle
shows In other cities. The sheep depart
ment Is also overflowing and temporary
shelter had to be arranged for. In the
horse, swine and dairy departments the
entries show they will b up to the record
of previous years.
The fair wa formally opened today, but
today and tomorrow will be given over al
most entirely to the work of preparation,
and th speed program and other attrac
tions do not begin until Monday next. Tho
music for tha fair will be furnished by a
band supported by the state the Indus
trial school orchestra from Mttchellvllle,
composed of forty girls. The orchestra Is
capable of giving the finest of concerts.
The presentation of the "Last Day of
Pompeii" will begin on Monday evening
and continue each evening. The railroads
have arranged to haul Immense crowds to
the fair from every part of the state and
If the weather continues good there Is no
doubt that it will b a great exposition.

Always Afraid Something Dreadful
is Going to Happen. Why Should
Women Have tho Blues Moro
When h cheerful, brave, and light-hearted woman is suddenly
plunged into that perfection of misery, the blues, it Is a 6ad picture.
It ia usually this way :
She has been feeling out of sorts for some time, experiencing severe
headache and backache ; sleeps very poorly and is exceedingly nervous.
Sometimes she is nearly overcome by falntness, dizziness, and pal
pitation of the heart; then that bearing-down feeling is dreadfully
Her husband 6ays, "Now, don't get tho blues! You 'will be all
right after you have taken the doctor's medicine."
But she does not get all right. She grows worso day ty day, until
all at once she realizes that a distressing femalo complaint is established.
Iler doctor has made a mistake. ,
She loses faith ; hope vanishes ; then comes the morbid, melancholy,
everlasting blues. She should have been told just what tho trouble
was, but probably she withheld some information from the doctor, who,
therefore, is unable to accurately looate her particular illnoss.
Mrs. Pinkham has relieved thousands of women from Just this
kind of trouble, and now retains their grateful letters in her library as
proof of the great assistance she has rendered them. Thla same assist
ance awaits every sick woman in the land. "Write her to-day.
