Interfere with IU work. Chief of Police
Richmond only returned home yesterday,
but as soon as he heard of Councilman
Fleming's suggestion, he practically p'aced
his veto on It. To keep the city In darkneaa
the entire night, he contended, would be to
place the community at the mercy of burg
lara, thlevaa and holdup thugs. "We had
much better have euch light as the com
pany can give pending tho repairs to Its
plant than no light at all," he said.
At the Invitation of Manager A. L, Eng'
lish of the Cltlsens' Gas and Electric com
pany members of the city council and
Commercial club vialted the power plant
of the lighting company in Omaha yester
day morning. They were shown how and
where the recent accident to the machinery
occurred and the efforts the company waa
making to repair the damage and get the
plant In full running order again. They
were ahown the new machinery which the
company la installing with the expectation
of preventing a recurrence of the present
breakdown. The councllmen and others ex
pressed themselves as satisfied that the
lighting company waa doing the utmost
In Ra power to remedy the situation and
that the accident waa one for which the
company could not be held responsible.
A visit waa also made to the power
plant of the street railway company. The

DES MOINES. Dec. l.-(Speclal.) Here
after on all the literature sent out by the
department of agriculture the state fair
will be spoken of as "The Iowa State Fhlr
and Exposition." It will, In fact, be a
"state fair and exposition," too.
Arrangements are being made to light
the grounds and buildings at night, so that
they will be practically as light as In the
daytime. In addition, the barns and stab!es
and all buildings will be open at night,
and there will be a horse show In the stork
pavllllon. Every year the attendance at
the night attraction at the fair la larger
than can gain admittance to the amphi
theatre to see the night attraction.
horse show In the stock pavllllon will thus
provide for the attendance there of the
overflow ' and will also compete with tho
night attraction at the amphitheatre for
The plans for the atate fair as Instituted
at the meeting of the directors of the de
partment last week are very far-reaching
and provide for the Increase In the pre
miums In the horse department by the
addition of 12,500. This will be used to
Increase all the premiums offered and will
also Increase the number of premiums of
fered. Some of this (2.500 Is also to he
used for entirely new premiums, the most
Important of which Is the premium on
American coach horses.
Recently the Unltod States Department
of Agriculture started In Colorado an ex
perimental breeding farm under the direct
supervision of Prof. Carlisle of the State
Agricultural college of that state. Th's
experimental farm Is for the purpose of
breeding a distinct American type of coach
horse. The kind that Thomas W. Lawson
and his class drive to their carriages.
Prof. Curtlss of the Iowa Agricultural col
lege Is Interested as one of the supervising
directors of thla experimental farm. The
Iowa State Fair and Exposition Is the first
state fair or exposition to offer premiums
especially for this class of horses. The
premiums will be so large that they will
guarantee the entrance at -eke fair of the
best class of this kind of hor.es that there
are In the United States, and these animals
will all be available for use at the horse
show at night.
There Is now but one other state fal that
gives a greater total amount In premlumn
In the horse department than does that In
this state, i In addition to bringing In
American coach--" horses, a new classifica
tion, It has also been decided to offer pre
miums on mulea that will made a classifica
tion and department In that line that will
be worthy of the tame.
The Institution ttf these plana will prob
ably bring such a large horse exhibit that
It will be difficult for the fair to handle
them. If, however, the legislature buys
the seven acres south of the present ground
and provldca for. a stock pavllllon there
the directors wllfum enough of the profits
of this year's fair to build a large brick
horse barn that' will hold at least 1U0 head
of horses, which will provide for a large
part of the Increased exhibit.
Attractions for Blight Crowd.
It Is contemplated In the plans of the
directors of the department that with the
grounds brilliantly lighted and all buildings
open at night the 'attendance at night will
be much larger than ever before. Clerks
and people from the city of Des Moineo
generally who tre busy with their work
during the day time and who are largely
unable to attend the state fair nt all will
swarm to the grounds at night. With tho
grounds open each day several hours moro
an additional Inducement will be held out
for the very highest class of attractions and
-oncesslons to come to the fair.
The financial prosperity that has smiled
upon the fair the lust few years Is enab
ling the directors to make the broadest Im
provements In every department. There la
not a department but will be strengthened
the coming year, , from machinery and
stock down to chickens and embroidery. In
fact, the two last, named department urc
coming In for their, share In abundance. In
the course of time the exposition building,
which Is . a subcjuuitlal structure In Ita
frajiuwork, is to be entirely wather
boarded on the outside and celled on the
Inside, so as to uinktJ.lt one of the per
manent buildings vf the fair. The floor on
tho inside will be mado of concrete Instead
of sawdust, and the.. whole character of
tliu building changed.
In the poultry department some compre
hensive plana are on foot. The dipartnnnt
offers premiums for the best milk cow, the
tests occurring on. the ground. It Is now
bring u:ged to offer premiums for the hen
thai lays the greater number of csks In
a period of twelve months. These wouid
be some difficulties attending the test, but
It is believed that It could be acccmplished.

AVO.D APPROACHING WEAKNESS
A disease that robs a man of his spirit, ambition and force
should not be considered a trilling ailment. Diseases or weak
nesses ot men may be primarily Induced from a variety of causes,
such as neglect. Ignorance, overwork, dissipation, etc. The victim
of weakness generally knows the cause. I-rfiss of power gradually
develops. Occasionally weakness Is usually the first sign of fall
ing powers. The man who stopk the cause and begins treatment
then Is restored so quickly by our method that he often does not
appreciate the calamity he has avoided. Deferring an active and
energetic course of treatment meana greater wakness. leading u
Nervous Debility and the complications that ensue. The evils are
both physical and mental.
Such troubles, when neglected or Improperly treated, have

examination of your ailments free of charge, an examination that

of which you are groping In the dark, and without a thorough
understanding of which no physician or specialist should treat
The man who haa youth In hla heart, pure blood In hla velna,
ambition, confidence and nervous energy In his make-up, and who
is free from the contaminating effects of these diseases or the de
pressing Influence of Nervous Debility is worth more to himself,

the hearts of thousands of young and middle-aged men who were
plunging toward the grave, restoring them to specimens of physi
cal manhood, full of vim, vigor and vitality.

Accounts All Square.
The account of every one of the ninety
nine counties of the state with the stato
auditor's ofllce will be suuare on the first
day of January, next, for the flrBt time
In the history of the state. At one time
the counties were Indebted to the state
IW.OOO. This was gradually reduced a little
at a time till at one time It was down to
$10,000. This, since Auditor Carroll came
Into office. Under the direction of Auditor
Carroll, J. F. Wall of Mount Ayr, clerk
for the revenue department, pressed the
matter In correspondence with the various
county auditors In an effort to get the ac
counts all atralght. The amount .was
greatly reduced, but could not be wiped
out, and on the recommendation of Auditor
Carroll the legislature last winter enacted
a law providing that counties must pay
2 per rent a month Interest on all back
accounts. This Is the same amount that
the counties are allowed to collect from
cltlx' ns who fail to pay their taxes. This
law did the business. The law went Into
effect July 4. 8 nee that time the counties
have been r'duclng the amounta they owed.
They were unable to wipe out the Indebted
