grounds that the visitor hardly
knowt Where to begin- his
sightseeing,' and doesn't leave
off tUl the day is ' ended.
Whether It be the live stock pens,' In
'which the state's proudest animals (ire
jto be seen, the machinery, the fruits, the
.graJns, the home products, the horsa rac

while. The program of amusements out
side the fixed exhibits Is o arranged
that time may be given to the, great dis
plays without . Interfering with .the sched
ule of special events for the day, and so
the visitor has an. opportunity to arrange
his own plans In such way as to get the
most out of a day spent at the fair. It
Is better, If study Is to be glyen to the
displays of grains, vegetables, ' fruit, live
stock, machinery and the like,, that more
than, one. day be devoted, to the fair, and
some visitors find It profitable to spend
the entire week In IJncoln, visiting the'
grounds each day for observation. In
this manner they are able to see In de
tail all the features, and to study at
leisure those In which they happen to be
particularly interested, ' and thus they
gain the very fullest benefit of the won
derful exhibition. But even the casual
visitor Is Impressed by the extent and
beauty , of the show, while the day
given over to the state fair, is always

Th machinery department is a busy
fciac as well as a noisy, place. .Probably
Fherfl Is no department at the state fair
Where there Is so much competition aa In
the machinery exhibit Every conceivable
nachlne that can be used along agricul
tural lines will be found over In Ma
ihinery hall and the space oupUlde al-
Ked to the men who exhibit the things
t make farm work easier and more
The big threshing machines with their
Dig venglnea always draw a crowd of
teople interested In the threshing buBl
esib It would seem that the perfection
bv threshing machine building had been
feached when one sees all the things the
hiedem'. threshing machine will do. Fed
Into the machine, fresh from the shock,
whew It had been placed only a day or
so' before, the machine turns out tht
right wheat ready for the market and
ome Instances ready for the biscuits.
Another .Interesting part of -the machin
ery exhlbii is that allotted to farm m
rh'ms. It would be useless to attempt tc
kit of-the'. many, machines' of different
kinds shown in this department. Culti
vatora, corn ' planters, drags barrows,
plows and the many other kinds of ma
chlhory necessary to the form will be
fbond hi unlimited numbers, so much so
that' the" prospectiver pnrchep becomes
bewildered In the mase of machinery
which greets his eye. Nearly every prom-
Jnent manufacturer; of farm machinery
makes it a point to make an exhibit at
the Nebraska fair, for being as this Is an
agricultural state, and one of the leading
state at that, they recognise the fact that
they must make a showing If they want
any of the money . Which the prosperous
Nebraska farmer receives for his hogs
Another necessary article which though
net a machine exactly, Is always found
to be a companion -to fhose mentioned
above In the department of machinery. l
the farm wagon. Nearly all of the lead
ing manufacturers have on exhibition the
best wagons Which their firms can. turn
out and as with the farm machinery, it
is difficult to select the best. They all
seem to be the best and ,the selection
made would probably be satisfactory no
matter what make would be chosen.
, The buggy used to be an Important part
of the necessary things about the farm,
and Is yet for that matter, but the auto
mobile seems to have put the buggy to
some extent In the background. However,
to those who still stick to the buggy,
either from choice or lack of funds, there
Is plenty of chance to see some of the
best manufactured in the country. '
Speaking of the automobile, reminds us
that the state fair this year will, be alive
With that vehicle, machine, car 'or what
ever you may call It. Last year consid
erable space was taken up by different
exhibitors of automobiles, but this year
every kind of machine used la Nebraska
will be on exhibition and the man who
thinks he would like to purchase an auto
will have every opportunity to make a
selection provided he does not go crazy
over the problem of making a. choice.
The automobile has become a necessity
How. A couple of years ago it was placed
in the luxury department of Ufa. Now ,
days the firmer recognises that It Is a
saving of time and money to have on the
farm one of thesa machines.
' Nebraska with Its good roads and the
agitation for better roads will soon be
come one of the greatest automobile
states In the west, and recognising that
fact nearly every manufacturer of any
prominence will have on exhibition sam
ples of his car. Besides the gasoline
machine the electrics are becoming very
popular tor city use and aa a consequence
everything In the line of luxury la planned
In the make-up of many of the high
priced electrio oars which will be on ex
hibition at the fair.
When speaking of automobiles. It will
not do to forget that other machines
which nave become so popu'w with those
who cannot afford the higher prices gaso
line automobile. We refer to the motor,
cycle. Three years ago the motorcycle
was hardly known in Nebraska, except In
some of the larger cities. Today it Is as
much of an everyday necessity as the
bicycle and bids fair to supplant fhat
once popular machine. Half a dozen dif
ferent makes of this machine, will be seen
at the fair, and. the man or woman who
wants quick service for a little money
will find an . opportunity to investigate
the strong little flyer.
All the above machinery needs a home.
Recognizing that fact the state fair man.
agement has this year constructed' a big
steel machinery ball costing many thou
sands of dollars In which will be housed
the machinery necessary to be kept under
cover. In this building every, kind of
machine used in these modern times wll
be found and plenty of chance given the
prospective purchaser to judge of Its
niedits or demerits as compared with the
other makes in the same building. Prob
ably no better chance could be given to
select any kind of machinery that will be
given the visitor to the state fair this
An Essajt on Philosophers.
A philosopher Is a man, and rarely a
woman, whb, having nothing to do and
being glad of It, puts in his time explain
ing the reason that other people should
have for doing things.
Philosophers are not popular because,
In the first place, most men are too busy
to listen to them, and, in the second
place, they ere satisfied with their own
reason for doing things.
Nevertheless, philosophers are wont to
gravitate toward comfortable stoves in
corner groceries, where men of varying
leisures utrasgle in tnd towards comfort
able chairs n universities where helpless
youth are compelled tc listen as a part
of an awful punishment called a curricu
lum. ' .v .
' Whenever "a philosopher becomes fa
mous, it always turns out that he Is not
a philosopher at all,' but a scientist Si
mon pure philosophers never give in
formation, because nothing less than ex
plaining th unknowable Will satisfy them.
One philospoher will never agree with an
other philosopher if he can possibly help
The Interested Visitor.
The aviator waited for the writer in the
latter's work room. When the writer
came In he saw that the visitor had taken
up a manuscript from the desk and was
skimming It through.
I beg your pardon," he said, somewhat
stiffly, "but that Is personal property, a
story intended for one of the leading
"Indeed." said the unabashed visitor.
"The fact Is, I bad a special reason for
looking the story over."'
"Go on," said the writer.
"I saw It on your desk."
"And I was very sure," said the visitor
cheerfully, "that I would never see It
anywhere else." Cleveland Plain Dealer.
