Tlic Hall and .Numerous Other Items (if the Ereutful Occasion. After slumbering ten years, the Frteboru County Agricultural Society, impelled by tlie almost unanimous wishes of the people of the county, decided a few weeks ago, to stimulate itself with the elixir of effort and to undertake to hold a county fair. The society possessed no grounds or build ings and only a couple of hundred dollars in money, and ttle task seemed almost ljut the responsibility was assumed by a few enterprising men, such as Isaac- Hotsford. A. C. Wedge. K. Stacy. L. J. Thomas. U. Fobes arid Adam Wieg- and, backed by the STAXDAUU and e, and the project soon began to asstinie form and For want of nearer grounds, Wedge donated the use of land on his Oak Kidge farm, a good race irack being already there, and temiiorary buildings were soon en-cted to accommodate the prospective exhibition. The list of paid-up members, through the diligent el fort of Secretary Thomas, soon as- sumed generous proportions: a premi- um list particularly favorable to the farmers was issued; special premiums by the business men were liberally announced, and as the eventful time approached, the attendance and weather were the chief questions of anxiety and doubt. The elements of sky are beyond human supervision, but it should not be forgotten, in organizing an event of public im- portance, that the public spirit, cooper- ation, interest, patronage and enthu- siasm of the people of 1'reeborn coun- ty need never be discounted; they can ue depended on every time. And more than all is this true of a county fair, for a fair is a republican in- stitution, an affair of the people, in which politics, .religion, classes and cliques cut no figure: they are all on a level; and all may "equally receive and enjoy the benefits. And" a great in- stitution it is! There is no public enterprise that compares with it. There is none that affords such im- partial and generous benefits and pleasures. The effort, long deferred, has been made. The struggles of the managers ind friends of the fair are ended for this year. The clouds of anxiety and doubt are dispelled by the inspiring sunshine of glorious success, and the proud and pleasant results are in gen- eral known to all. The throngs of happy thousands who passed through the gates and viewed Lhe exhibits of farm, garden, house- hold, art, store, shop and factory; of athletic skill on the base ball field and the magnificent test of speed on the racing track, are satisfied with the out- come, are congratulating each other on the honorable and unblemished record the society has made, and are already predicting with bright hopes and con- fidence a fair in 1890 which shall out- rival the one just held and triumph over all like competitors in the state. The carefully examined the exhibits and made note of all the entries, and found so much that was deserving and worthy of reference that the limits of space only prevent us from the pleasure of giving each a de- tailed description. IX THE MAIN IIUILDIXG. Filtering the south door at the right was S. Reinsberg, with his popular washing machine, which was without a competitor, and it was just as well, for it would have taken the blue ribbon anyway. Adjoining it was the W. Smith Company display. It was extensive, elaborate and costly, and constantly attracted crowds of ad- miring visitors. A. 1. Squier was next with a large and artistic display from his second hand store. Xext to him .M. K. Stem held forth with a splendid assortment of furs, clothing and fur- nishing g09ds from the lioston One- 1'rice Clothing Store. It captured the. crowd, and deservedly so. Across the aisle Johnson Peterson made an at- tractive exhibit of furniture from their mammoth store, and opposite them in a big booth, divided into the three de- partments of dry goods, groceries and crockery, was the Borland Mercantile Co. Xo display at the state fair was handsomer than theirs and it com- manded a constant throng of visitors. I'.ickenbach's harness business was finely represented across the way, and adjoining him, Miss Caroline Narveson presided at a handsome and popular booth of millinery goods. Xext to the art gallery was the booth of the STAXD- AUD. which was attended by the editor and several members of the force and they were all kept busy. Four large ample books containing ail the various inds of job printing, and a show case of wedding cards, invitations, ball pro- grams, calling cards were dis- played, and an object of much interest was the first volume of the STANDARD, issued in 1857. The STAXDAUD also exhibited a show case of geological specimens, ancient relics, minerals Opposite the STANDARD was J. A Fullers extensive display of photo- graphs, which was one of the chief at- tractions of the building. The art gallery occupied the corner space and was truly a notable exhibit. It con- tained over 00 '-pictures, among which were several of Mrs. Hansom's master- pieces. As she. was a judge, she de- clined to have them entered for compe- tition. Xext was the display of needle- work in which there were over 60 en- tries. It was a rarely excellent and sam kin n extensive boots :nni shoes. S. Strauss, the irrepressi- j bie, was arranged for winter. His 1 booth was cosy, rich and handsome, j mid won everybody's compliments. I skinner liro's enterprisingly exhibited sacks of Hour and other mil'l products, and deservedly captured many new customers thereby. M. liessinger, the marbleman displayed several beauti- ful pieces of his artistic work. C. K. Richardson's exhibit of the game birds of Freeborn county, showing his rare skill as a taxidermist, was a very interesting display. He also exhibit some line geological and mineral specimens, and a lambrequin made of the white mane of a horse. The Knatvold Hardware Co. made an ex- hibit of best makes of stoves; also organs and the Davis Sewing machine, and won many favorable comments. Xext to the west door were Hanson Skaug, the clothiers, with an attractive display, and opposite them Walter Thompson attracted the favor of all with an elaborate array of his best hoots and shoes. AND I'AXTKY. This department was not so well represented as it ought to have been, but the entries were all good and the butter, Hon. Jno. L. Gibbs one of the judges, pronounced as fine as any he had ever tested. The entries were as follows: Mrs Jno liaHsou. 1 M Sawyer. A 11 Johnson, .1A Burdlck, A W Massee, John (iuy. Mrs Claus Fliuut. Miss Emma Flliult, E Xoble and J H Chamberlain. .Several of these were entries of both granulated and dairy butter. Of cheese there were the following entries: Martin Xarverud, primost. pultost and hvidost; G. Keams, and Albert John- son of the Alden creamery. Of honey John Guy, Dills and E. X'oble had exhibits. Henry Fink had the only sorghum exhibit." Miss Kittie Trusdell had the only entry of cake, Mrs. Geo. II. I'rescott the only one of doughnuts, and Miss Ida Hull the only loaf of bread. There were altogether 111! entries in this depart- ment. KIXJC AISTS, l'AIXTING.3, if.

Samples of card and ornamental printing were only entered by the STANDARD, and they were numerous enough to satisfy anybody. To say ;hat they were ne plus ultra would be only to state what all know who know anything about such things, unanim- ously declared. FRUITS AND FLOWERS. There were 18 entries in this class made by M. Whalen, C. R. Hansom, D Dills, E. Xoble, Mrs. C, E. Brown, plants; C. T. Lund, J. Burdick, C. E. Richardson, Mrs. D. AY'. Hayes, cut flowers; Clarence AVedge, 16 kinds of grapes, plums and other fruit. GRAM) BABY SHOW.

VEGETABLES AND GRAIN. In this class was seen an exhibit that would have done honor to any 'air held in the state this year. Al- most every kind of vegetables were en- ;ered and none were ordinary. The argest lots were furnished by 0. A. Lund (10 Loren Blackmer, J. :V. Burdick (9 C. li. Ransom, Daniel Dills. J. M. Flindt, M. Whalen and Ge9- Whitman. It was altogether a fine display. There was a small but excellent showing of grain and seeds, lie wheat, corn, oats, clover and beans being especially noteworthy. There were 48 entries of vegetables'and grain. HORSES AND STALLIONS. Altogether there were 91 horses, nares, colts and stallions on exhibition, md a splendid array they made. It surprised all visitors of the fair to ;now that the county possessed so many and such superior full-blood and jeneral purpose trotting and carriage lorses. AVe intend to refer to them more particularity next week. Xo lacks or mules were on exhibition. CATTLE, GRADES AND NATIVES. Xearly 50 head were shown, includ- ng the fine shorthorn herds of Dr. Wedge and Jno. G. Godley. Mr. Krebs exhibited the only Jersey cow. The cattle were not in the best of order, owing to the dry pastures, but they vere all creditable and at least half o'f ,hem would have been notable at the state fair. SHEEP AND HOGS. AV. AVadsworth exhibited a line 'otsworth ram and ewe, C. D. Holcomb displayed live lambs and one buck, and C. Nelson two ewes, which were all yorthy of premiums. There were only six of Henry Fink's, and 5 of J-. Tottingham's, all Poland China. They were fine specimens. POULTRY EXHIBITS. J. Q. Annis exhibited a coop each of white and brown leghorns; C. H. Ran- som, a coop of Plymouth Rock; C. Tottingham, a coop of turkeys: Geo. geese, and Mrs. M. Halvorsen, 5ekin ducks, light Brahmas and tur- ceys. All were very fme and attractive fowls. MANUFACTURES. The display was small in this class and will undoubtedly be greatly im- n'oved on next year. Ilauge Co. lad two wagons, AV. 0. Blake, auto- and sorter for which they are agents. AN EXCITING ilAMK OF BALL. The game of ball for a purse of of which the winm-re were to have S5( and the losers S'2.0, was finally arranged between the Hovlands anci Forest City, instead, of Winnebago City, the latter having flunked, fearing they would lose the silver bat, as the) surely would have done. The game played Thursday was witnessed and enjoyed by a large crowd. Hark- ness and Blake constituted the bat- tery for the Hovlands. They played a great game and their support greatly pleased them. Ilarkness was loaded for the occasion, and did not allow the F. C's a single safe hit. The record of the game is as follows: Hovliind Mercantilf Co Hayes, of 7 c Kjlp.'lb Kmlsater.rf Floyd, Harkness, p Butler. If....

There have been much faster races, but none have been better managed nor conducted more honestly. They were very exciting and were witnessed by several thousand people. The two best of course, were the free for all and the running races. The others 'were good, but these capped the climax of AVe give the record as enjoyment, follows: THUKSDAV.

The weather was rather cool, but it acted very fairly after all. The "circus" freaks did a lonesome business. There was too much else worth seeing. W. A. Morin was .1 very popular connoiseur. and did gallant service in the art gallery'. The main building was the best that could be afforded, but it was not half large enough. The race track was too hard, and not '-fast." but it was smooth and was kept in good shape. The races were the finest ever seen in the county. They alone were worth all the fair cost. We have yet to learn of a kick orgrowl or com- plaint of undue partiality or unfair treatment from anyone. Henry Snyder won the premiums on dons, his team in harness having made the circuifof the track in lively style. The premium list will not be ready for publi- cation until week, some of the judges not having made full reports. Mrs. Ramsey drove W. A. Storm's team of 'rays, and gracefully won the honors for hand- ling the ribbons to a double team. The Baptist dining booth was unable to supply the hungry and tiic others were repeatedly eaten out of "house and home." W. S. Krebs was efficient and popular as a superintendent In tlie stock department, and did much in various ways to make the fair n success. The lady equestrians were altogether too bash- ful. Many hoped to see a half dozen or more riders, and were disappointed that they were not so favored. Miss Minnie Ruble handsomely yet loncsoniely won the prize and also the double prize (or best riding with a gentleman compan- ion, her brother. Only Chas. Fobes and Artie Hansom competed for the bicycle prize, the other cyclists in town having failed to conn' to the scratch. Mr. Fobes won In and Delegations were present from far and near, Austin, N'orthwood. Forest City, Lake Mills. Wells. Fairmont, and other sister towns were numerously represented. The Forest City wished they had not accepted the base ball challenge. Uarkness was loaded for them, and all of the Hovland club did line work. Kevenge is sweet and the Holland's have it In big measure. Clarence Wedge's grape exhibit included the following varieties: Delaware, White Ijuly. Concord. Prentiss. Acawan. Telegraph, Champi- on, Lindley. I'ocklington, Clinton, Morse's Early, Worden and Massasoit. The STANDAim booth was one of the most popular halting places. In awarding the paper two blue ribbons for line job printing the judges simply indorsed the opinion of the crowds at the fair and everybody else who is posted. Secretary Thomas won the good opinion of all. He was diligent, patient, good-natured and al- ways on hand and ready to help and accommo- date in any way in his power. Considering his brief experience he has made a capital ofllcer. C. E. Richardson's splendid exhibit of game birds of Freeborn coimty included prairie chickens, white prairie chickens, pin-tailed grouse, ruflled grouse, wood cock. Jack rail, king rail, night heron, wood ducks, teal ducks, red (lucks, while swan, and several other interesting varieties. r. It. Fobes was I lie right man to arrange .1111! display the ladies' line needlework, and some' of the fairont-3 were so proud of his efforts that i they continually hovered about liiin, causing i Will .Murin to put an extra polish on hissradiwi- llCS-i. Attorney Genera! Clupp inude un admirable spt-ecb and he was closely li-nened to bv it largi- i alidic-ncu. He is :i large, line-looking iimn ami his bearing and address favorably impressed ail who met him. Dor Stacy knows how to manage races anil be cannot be beaten in twenty counties, lie brought the nags to the wire on time; was prompt, deci- sive and fair, and deserves a gold medal for pro- viding tile best racing program ever given in the county. Everybody enjoyed the races. The premiums were won by Dan- iel Hurd of Alden for being the oldest continu- ous subscriber, he having made the only entry for It. He has been a steady subscriber com- mencing with the first number in July 1857. Dr Wedge. II. D. Brown, Isaac Botsford and proba- bly one or two others might also have claimed the premium. Miss Emma Flindt won our pre rnium for the best five pounds of roll buttermad by a young lady under Hi years of age. and th young man who captures her will get the b-s prize yet ottered. The judges failed to make at award on the best dozen ears of com, so we an unable to award our third premium. The financial outcome in brief Is about this Premiums and all expenses will be paid in fnl and the society will own the buildings and iuni ber on the grounds. There is quite a general ex pression among those in the city who have beet awarded premiums to decline the monev du them, and there are propabiy but few such who will accept anything. The lumber of the sheds and pens will be piled inside the main building and locked up until needed next year. Following is a true statement of the cash receipts: On ban< received for membership tickets 00 gate receipts S4G22I. grand stand S22.-.'Q, Iota Onlv S82.oo-375.00 for Ihe ball game and S7.00 for the paid out for sports and that amount is only about half what was re ceived at the gate and grand stand the last day The J. W. Smith Company's Exhibit, Probably the most disappointed ex- hibitors on the grounds was the J. W. Smith Company. This company had Made all the necessary arrangements for the erection of a special building in order to show off their new depart- ment store, but just at the last minute their help disappointed them, and they were obliged to go into the main build- ng. This compelled them to leave out :heir entire grocery exhibit, and great- y curtail their display of dry goods. Of course they carried off the blue ribbon highest award of the society, it :ould not have been otherwise, taking .he testimony of visitors; it could only lave been better by being larger. Had .hey been enabled to carry out their jriginal intention their display would certainly have eclipsed anything seen it the State Fair or Minneapolis Expo- sition. But their grocery establish- nent on Broadway, next door to J. W. Smith's old stand, is daily receiving he highest award of the heir increased patronage. They pay he highest prices for farm produce are getting lots of it, and their trade is increasing. Parents' Dnty. Parents should be careful that their .hildren do not contract colds during he fall or early winter months. Such colds weakens the lungs and air pass- ages, making the child much more likely to contract other colds during the winter. It is this succession of colds that caases catarrh and bronchi- tis, or paves the way for consumption. Should a cold be contracted, loose no time but cure it as quickly as possible. A fifty cent bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy will cure any cold in a few days and leave the respiratory organs strong and healthy. For sale by Parker Briggs. After the Fair.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
