State Fair Amusement List Well Filled
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:

That ought to be attractive enough
for anybody and sure, will be swift
enough to start the blood tingling.

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
