LINCOLN, Neb.. Sept. 10 (Special Tele
gram.) The Nebraska State fair closed to
day at 4 o'clock with the grounds Btlll com
fortably filled with visitors, there being
total of U.686 admissions against a total
of t,6I a year ago on the last day.
The stata fair board will meet tomorrow
to check up lis accounts and see Just
where It stands financially. Today the
board paid out $30,000 to prise winners and
others and warrants are all ready for the
remainder. The board believes It will be
Shy about tS.OOO, though this cannot be de
No Beds for Fair Visitor.
Many visitors to the fair went away from
the city feeling dissatisfied with the treat
ment accorded them by the city. Scores
of persons were unable to secure lodgings
on Wednesday night and many of these
eat up all night In chairs at the Lincoln
hotel, while others remained at the Bur
lington depot and sat up In the watting
This necessity was due entirely to bad
management, for there were plenty of
rooms out In the city, but the stranger
knew not where they were located. The
commercial club secretary excused himself
by giving a statement to the local papers
that visitors to, the fair spent the day
sightseeing and then half the night the
same way before trying to get lodging.
The Information booth at Tenth and O
streets was closed at 11 p. m. After that
hour several trains reach Lincoln and
those who came In on those trains were
unable to secure rooms and they found
no one able to direct them to lodging
bouses that were not already full.
This year the merchants did not furnish
the lights which are usually strung across
O street and there was little attempt at
decoration of the stores, which was com
mented. upon by many of tha visitors.
The people of Lincoln did not attend the
fair In any great numbers, and so notice'
able was this that oven the local papers
commented on It.
Havelock was on the map from the day
the fair started until the gates were closed
today. Parties brought beer Into the city
from Havelock ' In suit cases, grips and
trunks. One party who had beer shipped In
was unable, under the ruling of the ex
else toard, to have It delivered to his
hotel by a transfer company, so he hired
a wagon, drove to the station, got his beer,
loaded It himself and hauled It to his
room. All of whloh h did under the super
vision of a policeman. This story was told
by one traveling man to another.
Llaeola Maa Commits Salclde.
Word was received In Lincoln tonight that
'Will C, Phillips, for eight years clerk of
the district court, had killed hjsiself at the
Coatee hotel In Kansas City tonight. Some
time ago Mrs. Phillips secured a divorce
from her husband and the only reason that
can be assigned for his act tonight Is fam

The new State Normal- board met this
. afternoon and decided to advertise again
' for bids for the construction of the build
ings at Peru and Kearney, no bids having
been filed today.
The board decided also to visit the va
rious towns which want the new normal
schools, starting out on Its trip October 11.
By that time the board hopes to have a
decision from the supreme court on the
legality of the act which created It,
No TJaloa Depot.
Representatives of the various railroads
nterlng Lincoln held a confer Ice today
with the boosters ' for the Union depot,
with the general result that It looks as
though Lincoln will not get the Northwest
or Missouri Paoifto or Rock Island to go
Into too deal. Each of these roads has a
good depot and It Is probable that the
Union Paclflo will some da.' make ar

At least two visitors to the state fair

be In his office all the time or at least
on the ocoaslon of their calls. The two
men reached the office of the governor at
the same time this morning.

it. It's success is due to the extraordinary values it offers everyday.

By buying our own fabrics we eliminate the middle-man's profit
we apply this saving to the betterment of our clothes and by so do
