As will be seen, tin* society had 8S5 on hand to begin with, and after the premiums are paid, which amount to 8300, will still have 829 on hand. But this does not represent the total assets. The lumber in tin- buildings cost about .<400 and at a lair estimate is worth 8200. It is all paid for and belongs to tlu- society. Every premium will be paid in full upon application to the secretary, but it is likely that only a few in Albert Lea will claim their money. Clark A Anderson’s Luck. ‘"There is luck in odd numbers,” said Rory OMore, and Rory might have added that occasionally an even number strikes it rich. ClaVkA. Anderson, proprietors of the Monitor Restaurant, 004 South Thirteenth street, think so at least; for they held one-fourth of ticket, 15,100 in the July drawing of The Louisiana State Lottery, and when the whe< I stopped it. was found that 15.100 had drawn sjo,-om, hence their share was 812,500. “it happened this wav,” said Mr. Anderson to a reporter. “Clark and I were not very well lixed and 1 remarked one evening let us invest 85 in The Louisiana State Lottery. He agreed, and we started to buy the ticket. I was in favor of buying live twentieths, hut he said: "No, let us buy a fourth, and if we win we will get something. So we purchased. 1 looked anxiously for the list and when it came and 1 found that we had won I was actually paralyzed. We collected the money through the Breilic express and it came to hand as promptly as if it had been one of. Jay Gould's check’s we were getting cashed. No, we are not going to Europe; we will stay right here, put a little more money in our business and see if w e can not increase our gains. As a matter of fact the cash will help us out amazingly.

RATTAN and    (1IAIRS THE COl'VIA FAIR IN ’90, Planning for \«-w KuildingN-.A •splendid KxpONttion Hall to be Erected .—The I'rcNent Main Ituiiding M ill he I’aed Nolely for Hortie«-—The Xext Fair to be a Boomer. Secretary Thomas and the other members of the new management of the agricultural society are already laying out plans for the county fair for next year. It has already been decided to devote the present building, used at the late fair for the main exhibition, entirely to horses, and an extensive line of stalls and pens for cattle and other stock will be erected immediately east of it, Dr, Wedge having liberally laid out three acres more of ground for the purpose. The main exhibition hall will be erected in the northwestern part of the grounds, near where the late stock sheds were; a building for trotting and racing horses will he located south of this, on the west side of the track, and other booths and attractions will be placed in that locality. This will be a great improvement, in many respects, over the present arrangement. The time hyr the next fair will be lixed as soofA as possible. Secretary Thomas will correspond with the secretary of the state fair, and with the managers of the fairs in adjoining counties, and arrange, if possible, to hold the fair of this county at a t inie vvhen it will least conflict with others. This will insure a large line of exhibits from outside the county, and will secure the attendance of some of the tinest racing horses in the state. The county fair of Freeborn county is hereafter to become one of the big events of Southern Minnesota; the right start has been made, and the right kind of men are at the helm to achieve success.
