ChMWcr,    impelled by the almost unanimous wishes of Che people of tin* county, decided a few w i cks ago, to stimulate itself w ith the elixir of effort and to undertake to hold a county fair. The •si*ciety possessed no grounds or build-lug** and only a couple of hundred dollars in money, and the task seemed almost holeless, but the responsibility was assumed by a few enterprising I men, such as Isaac Boxford, Dr. A. < Wedge, Dor. K. Stacy, J lr. L. . Thomas, F. Ii. Fobes atm Adam Wieg-j and, backed by the STANDARD and j Enterprise, aud the project soon began I to assume form and tieing. For want ol nearer grounds, Hr. Wodge donated j the usi* of land on his Oak Ridge farm, j a giMKl race track being already there, and temporary buildings were soon erected to accommodate the prospective exhibition. Th** list of paid-up members, through the diligent effort of Secretary Thomas, soon assi tined generous proportions: a premium list particularly favorable bf the fanners was issued; special premiums by the business men were liberally announced, and as the eventful time approached, the attendance aud weather were the chief questions of Ami iH aler in    anxiety    and doubt. The demmti of sky lire beyond human supervision, but it should not be forgotten, in organizing an event of public im-i*ortance, that the public spirit, cooperation. interest, patronage and enthn-Ut*.!! n.aA.B    i.    I    alanin of the people of Freeborn coun- luflil Orders Promptly Attended to* I ty need never be discounted; they can la* depended on every time. And more than all is this trio* of a county fair, for a fair is ii republican institution. an affair of the people, in winch poll tics, religion, clans*-* and •hques cut no figure; they are all on a evel; and all may equally receive and Mijoy the benefits. And a great institution it is! Them is no public enterprise that compares with it. There is none that affords such impartial and generous benefits and pleasures. 'I’he effort, long Referred, has been made. The struggles of the managers and friends of trie fair are ended for this year. The cloud-* of anxiety and doubt ar** dispelled by the inspiring sunshine of glorious success, and tin proud and pleasant results are in gen end known to all. The throngs of happy thousands w ho passed through the gates and viewed the exhibits of farm, garden, houst hold, art, store, shop and factory; of athletic skill on the base ball Held and the magnificent test ol 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 faience a fair in iHifi which shall out rival the one just held and triumph over all like competitors in the state The Standard carefully examined the exhibits and made note of all the entries, and found s<» much that was deserving aud worthy of reference that the limits of space only prevent us from the pleasure of giving each a detailed description. IN THE MAIN BUILDING. Filtering the south door at the right was S. Keinsberg, with his popular “Eclipse” washing machine, which was without a competitor, and it was just as well, for it would have taken tilt blue ribbon anyway. Adjoining it was the J. W. Sin itll Company display. It was extensive, elaborate ana costly, and constantly attracted crowds of ad miring visitors. A. II. Squier was next with a large and artistic display from his second hand store. Next to him Af. E. Stern held forth with a splendid assortment of furs, clothing and furnishing goods from the Ruston One-Price Clothing store. It captured the crowd, and deservedly so. Across the aisle Johnson & Peterson made an attractive exhibit of furniture from their mammoth store, and opposite them in a big booth, divided into the three departments of dry goods, groceries and crockery, was the Ilovland Mercantile Co. No display at the state fair was handsomer than theirs and it commanded a constant throng of visitors. Rickenbach’s harness business was tinely represented across the way, and adjoining him, Miss Caroline Narveson presided at a handsome and popular booth of millinery goods. Next to the art gallery was the booth of the .Standard, which was attended by the editor and several members of the force, and they were all kept busy. Four large sample hooks containing all the various kinds of job printing, and a show’ ease of wedding cards, invitations, ball programs, calling cards Arc., were displayed, and an object of much interest was the first volume of the Standard, issued in 1857. The Standard also exhibited a show ease of geological specimens, ancient relics, minerals Sec. Opposite the Standard was J. A. Fuller’s extensive display of photographs, which was one of the chief attractions of the building. The art gallery occupied tin* corner space and was truly a notable exhibit, It contained over 50 pictures, among which were several of .Mrs. Ransom’s masterpieces. As she was a judge, she declined to have them entered for competition. Next was Hie display of needlework iii which there were over Ik) entries. It was a rarely excellent and occupied a prominent position with a line line of photographs which every-1 odv praised, The domestic .Sewing Machine Co. was well represented through Cage. Holland A Hayden, and N nixon A Sorenson divided attention with competitors with an extensive exhibit ol artistically arranged boots and shoes. S. Strauss, the irrepressible, was arranged tor winter. His booth was cosy, riel» and handsome, I j*itil won everybody’s compliments, j .skinner Rro’s enterprisingly exhibited I sacks of Hour and other mil! products. I and deservedly captured many new J customers thereby, M. Ressingcr, th** 11 mar blent an displayed several beautiful pieces of bis artistic work. (\ E. Richardson’! exhibit of the game birds of Freeborn county, showing Ins rare rskill us a taxidermist, was a very i interesting display Ile also exhibft I softie fine geological and mineral j s|n*oimens, and a lambrequin made of the white mane of a horse. The I Knatvoid Hardware Co. made an exhibit of best makes of stoves; also organs and the Davis Sewiflg machine, J and Won many favorable comments, j Next to th** west door were Hanson St J Skaug, the clothiers, with an attractive display, and opposite them Waiter Thompson attracted the favor of all with an elaborate array of his best boots and shoes. DAIRY AND FANTRY. lins department was not so well represented as it ought to have been, j but the entries were all good and the I butter, Hon. .loo. L, Gibbs one of the j judges, pronounced as flue ss any he i bad ever tested. Th** entries wen* as follows: Mr- J no I Lib *<*ii, I lf Sawyer, A M .lolls 400, a A DiirOck, A W    .Idiin    Guy,    Mn Claus Flu.<u. Miss Kin ma Fundi. K Noble and J ll Coanktrliii.

Samples of card and ornamental printing were only entered by the STANDARD, and they were numerous enough to satisfy anybody. To say that they were ne plus ultra would be only to state what all know who know anything about such things, unanimously declared. FRUITS AND FLOWERS. There were 18 entries in this class made bv M. Whalen, I'. Ii, Ransom, I). Dills, E. Noble, Mrs. E. Brown, plants; T. Lund, J. A. Burdick, E. Richardson, Mrs. I). W. Hayes, cut dowers; Clarence Wedge, It; kinds of grapes, plums anti other fruit.

Mrs A Crouch, boy; Mrs A Norton, boy: Mrs K K Ih-mington, boy; Mrs Chan Heath, boy; Mrs Ed Norton, girl. VEGETABLES AND ©RAIN. In this class was seen an exhibit that would have done honor to any fair held in the state this year. Almost every kind of vegetables were entered ana none were ordinary. The largest lots were furnished by (’. A. Lund (IO kinds); Loren Blackmer, J. A. Burdick (9 kinds); IL Ransom, Daniel Dills, J. M. Flindt, M. Whalen and (leo. Whitman. It was altogether a fine display. There was a small but excellent showing of grain and seeds, the 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, mares, colts and stallions on exhibition, and a splendid array they made. It surprised all visitors of the fair to know that the county possessed so many and such superior full-blood and general purpose trotting and carriage horses. We intend to refer to them more particularity next week. No jacks or mules were on exhibition. CATTLE, GRADES AND NATIVES. Nearly 50 head were shown, including the fine shorthorn herds of Dr. Wedge and Jno. G. Godley. Mr. Krebs xhibited the only Jersey cow. The cattle were not in the best of order, owing to the dry pastures, but they were all creditable and at least half of them would have been notable at the state fair. SHEEP AND HOGS. W. Wadsworth exhibited a fine 'otsvvorth ram and ewe, ('. I). Holcomb displayed live lambs and one buck, and Nelson two ewes, which were all worthy of premiums. There were only six hogs- 3 of Henry Fink’s, and 5 of Tottingham’s, all Poland China. They were tine specimens. POULTRY EXHIBITS. J. Q. Annis exhibited a coop each of white and brown leghorns; C. It. Ransom, a coop of Plymouth Rock; (’. fottingham, a coop of turkeys; Geo. Heim, geese, and Mrs. M. Ilalvorsen, ’ekin ducks, light Brahmas and turkeys. All were very tine and attractive fowls. THE BACKS. Probably better races were never witnessed at a county fair in the state. 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 tiles** capped the climax of enjoyment. We give the record as follows: TH ( KMM V.

This company had made ail the necessary arrangements for tin* erection of a special building in order to show off their new department store, but just at tin* last minute their Bein disappointed them, and they were obliged to go into tile main building. This compelled them to leave out their entire grocery exhibit, and great ly curtail their display of dry goods. Of course they carried off the blue ribbon the highest award of the society: it could not have been otherwise, taking the testimony of visitors; it could only have been better by being larger. Had they been enabled to carry out their original intention their display would certainly have eclipsed anything seen at the State Fair or Minneapolis Exposition. But their grocery establishment on Broadway, next door to J. VV. Smith’s old stand, is daily receiving the highest award of the community their increased patronage. They pay the highest prices for farm produce, are getting lots of it, and their trade is constantly increasing. ■*♦»■ — Parents’ Duty.

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. Marin was a very popular eonnoiseur. 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. Tile race track was too burd, 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 \s*re worth jill the fair cost. We have yet to learn or a kick or growl or complaint of undue partiality or unfair treatment from anyone. Henry Snyder won the premiums on dogs, his team iii harness having made the circuit of the track In lively stjle. The premium list will not be ready for publication until next week, some of the Judges not having made full reports. Mrs. Ramsey drove W. a. Morin’s team of grays, and gracefully won the honors for handling the ribbons to a double team. The Baptist dining booth was unable to supply the hungry and the others were repeatedly eaten out of “house and home.” W. 8. Krebs was efficient and popular as a superintendent In the stock department, and did much in various ways to make the fair a success. The lady equestrians were altogether too bashful. Many hoped to see a half dozen or more riders, and were disappointed that they were not so favored. MANUFACTURES. The display was small in this class and will undoubtedly be greatly im-jroved on next year. Bauge Sc Go. tad two wagons, W. G. Blake, auto-1 Varieties! Miss Minnie Ruble handsomely yet lonesomely won the equestrian ship prize and also the double prize for best riding with a gentleman companion, lier brother. Only dias. Fobes ami Artie Ransom competed for the bicycle prize, Hie other cyclists in town having failed to come to tile scratch. Mr. Fobes won in 2:2fiJsJ and 2:.Xi. Delegations were present from far and near, Austin, Northwood, Forest City, Lake Mills. Wells, Fairmont, and other sister towns were numerously represented. The Forest City wished t hey had not accepted the base ball Challenge. Darkness was loaded for them, and all of the liovland club did line work. Revenge is sweet and the Hovland’s have it in big measure. Clarence Wedge’s grape exhibit included the following varieties:    Delaware,    White    lauly, Concord, Prentiss. Agawam Telegraph, Champion, Lindley. Pockllhgton,Clinton, Morse’s Early, Worden and Massasolt. The 8tan da hi) booth was one of the most popular halting places. In awarding the paper two blue ribbons for line job printing tin* judges simply indorsed the opinion of tin* crowds at tho lair and everybody else who is posted. Secretary Thomas won tin* good opinion of all. He was diligent, patient, good natured and always on hand and ready to help and accommodate in any way in liis|>ower. Considering his brief experience he lias made a capital officer. C. E. Richardson’s splendid exhibit of game birds of Freeborn county included prairie chickens, white prairie chickens, pin-tailed grouse, ruffled grouse, wood cock, jack rail, king rail, night heron, wood ducks, teal ducks, red I ii ticks, w hile swan, and several other interesting After the Fair. livery body says the fair was a success; we are glad of it, and trust we shall have a fair in this county every year.
