State Fair Amusement List Well Filled war NEBRASKA STATE HOUSE FROM THE SOUTH While the state fair to tome degree is considered an educational institu tion from the standpoint of agricul ture mostly, yet the people who come to Lincoln rather look toward a good time mixed in with the rest, and so from year to year Secretary Mellor has looked about him with the idea of bringing to the fair some good, whole some amusements for the entertain ment of the state fair patrons. The races-of course, are looked upon as the most important of the amusement features and in years past the people have not been disappoint ed. This year the races will be better than ever, with a .splendid entry, which is bound to attract the crowds. The automobile races last year, at tracted thousands and they stayed to the end, notwithstanding th weather was not good for the races. Records on dirt tracks were smashed by the intrepid drivers present, among them the best known men in the business. ' Wild Bill Endicott will be back again this year and participate, while many of the others probably will be present. Visitors at the fair this year will have the pleasure of seeing Ruth Law, the woman avatrix, who has been thrilling the crowds all over the country with, her dives and loop, which equal the most daring acts of Thompson or Beachey. In addition to the customary day flights, Miss Law will fly by night with light and py rotechnics to mark her flight through the darkness. This alone wilt be something new for the state fair vis itor, and something new is what the management of the fair endeavors to give each year. . As usual there will be the vaude ville stunts on the quarter stretch in front of the grand stand between the races and in the evening. Three great bands will furnish moat of the music, the Nebraska State and, George Green's celebrated Omaha band and the Kilties from Canada. Those who love popular selections from the operas are going to hear the best there is going and a double quar tet of the famous Baron-Wheatly singers will furnish the music. This is all that needs to be said; the name Baron-Wheatly is sufficient to indi cate the class of the vocal work. ; The Midway. If there is anybody who oomes to the fair who does not visit the Midway, he loses much of the fun that goes with a visit to the Nebraska annual exposition. Johnnie Jones is going to furnish the Mid way attractions this year. Did you lis ten? Johnnie Jones, the man who has gotten together a bunch of attractions which has become world-wide in their attractiveness, and when the people hear that Johnnie Jones is 'coming they flock and flock and flock, and Johnnie Jones does the rest. A new-fangled contrivance will be seen at the fair which is warranted to cure the grouch, the blues or any old thing which tends to make people miserable. "The Whip" is what they cell it, and it is a sort of riding device that causes one to forget his troubles and feel that life is really worth the living. It is impossible to describe what the thing is like, but give it a trial, and if you are not satisfied after you are through you can have your grouch returned to you in as goon condition as when you tost it while riding the Whip. Then comes the fireworks in the evening. Everybody likes to watch the fireworks and they are going to have a chance this year to see just about the best ever in that line. As usual they will be set off in front of the grandstand and everybody will have a chance to see something new. Something new is what the state fair management is angling for and they believe they will have it in the Therle Duffield fireworks. It might be well to go back to the races for a little while before this story is finished and give you some idea of what you can expect. There will be each day a conglomeration of running, trotting and pacing that will do your heart good to see. Be sides the ten running races prom ised the following program will, be given, which gives you some idea of what to be looking for: Dv.nt Purs.

Our equipment and tracks are in first-class operating condition and every effort will be made State Fair Week to handle the passengers, with speed and safety. When you arrive at the depot in Lincoln, take any street car and ask the conductor for a transfer to i the State Fair Grounds. I Take Cars for Fair Grounds I just wnat base ball lovers are going to have a chance to see in the great national game. Last year the season closed before the state fair opened, but this vear the league will be doing business at the old stand and putting in the full-length season. . Lincoln in the Western league is scheduled to play the first two days of the fair and the rest of the week in Sioux City, but it is possible that these games may be transferred to Lincoln in order to take advantage of the big crowds which annually visit the fair. This is frequently done, and base ball lovers may have a chance to see Western league ball as it is played sometimes. Take it all around, the amusements at the fair this year will be so At tractive that none need fear that they will not have a grand, good time.
