Al. G. Field's United Opcratlo Minstrels
opened at the Grand last night an engage

houso was well filled with an unusually
eood class of people. The entertainment
given by this company Is a very entertain
ing one, the finale of the first part Intro
ducing the funniest telephono racket yet
seen. This act simply convulses the house.
The singing was good, the Instrumental
music up to the same standard, and tho
specialties novel and Interesting. Mr,

statue clog, Mr. McLean'? banjo playing,
Mr. Plrrung's pedal juggling, Mr. BussclPs
unlquo and popular specialty, tho quar-
tettes, and, in fact, tho whole performance
was artistic and very attractive. Slgnor
Dawn's thrilling act formed a fitting climax
to such an array of eood things, and the
afterpiece sent everybody home In a good
humor. The samo programme will be glv.
en this evening. Columbut Evening DUpatch,
A stampede occurred at the fair grounds
last Soturday afternoon just beforo the be
ginning of tho first heat in tho opcn-to-all
race. After passing under tho wire in the
first start, which was n false one, Jesse,
ono of the horses in tho race, became un
manageable and started on a dead run
around tho race course, tho driver endeav
oring vainly to stop him. The crowd
standing on the track did not see this at
once, but several In the grand stand shout,
ed "runaway," and m an Instant the whole
crowd was trying to get off tho track.
Somo climbed to the top of the fence sur
rounding tho grounds, many jumped tho
fence separating tho track from the main
grounds, and many ran through tho gato
from the track onto tha grounds, while tho
rest struggled and pushed to get as close
to tho fenco as possible. Tho drivers of
nil the horses in the race drovo through
the gate at the north corner of the grounds.
Fortunately, Jesse was stopped when three
quarters of tho distance around the track
and no damage was done.
All lovers of good music should go to
tho Opera Houso Saturday evening to
hear the Gem English Opera Company, in
"Bohemian Girl", with MUs Annie Mon
tague prima donna soprano and Mr. Chas.
Turner, primo tenor. Read what the Al
bany Eiprm nl May 18th says of them:
Tho best vocal music which tho Leland
Stage has afforded this season Is the tribute
which may be fairly rendered to tho Mon-laguc-Turner
Company In last evening's
performance. It relies for success on its
vocal and histrionic ability. Tho company
is composed of most excellent material.
Miss Annk Montague is a soprano of good
power, with n clear sympathetic voice of
wide range, bhe Interprets the Bohemian
Girl In a most charming manner. Thau-
ileu?, the leading malo character, Is ably
supported by Mr. Charles Turner, who has
a splendid voice, and exhibited powers of
high merit. Miss Zoo De Vielll has a con.
tralto voice of force and good quality. The
same compliment may.be paid to Mr. Con.
eel, baritone, and Mr. Harmon, basso. All
are musicians of note and long standing.
They render a musical treat. Last night's
audience were highly pleased, almost con
stant applause and curtain lecalls at the
close of each act.

THE LARGEST ATTENDANCE IN ITS HISTORY.
Tho Thlrly-thlrd Annual Fair of tho Co.
lumbla County Agricultural, Horticultural
and Mechanical Association was held last
week, beginning on Wednesday and clos
ing Baturday. On Friday It Is estimated
that 16000 pcoplo wero on tho grounds.
It was a moving, living mass of humanity
everywhere, and policemen had to be sta
tioned In tho Exhibition building to keep
tho crowd moving In ono direction. At
ono tlmo there was such a crush that
clothes were torn,butno other Injury done.
On both Friday and Baturday thcro was a
rush for tha grand stand to sco tho
races, and tt was moro by good luck than
good management that many pcoplo wero
not Injured In tho Jam.
Tho displays of articles on exhibition
was fully up to tho standard. In the de
partmcnts of fancy articles, embroidery,
painting, and In tho domestic manufactuics
of butter, pics, cakes, &c, It Is very evi
dent that' tho dames and lasses of Colum
bia county aro fully up to tbclr sisters any
where. In the Main building I. W. Hartman &
Bon occupied a large spaco with goods from
their store, very tastefully arranged, con
sisting of dry goods, crockery, curtains,
coats, plushes, and much else, and yet not
giving ono an adequate Idea of the very
extcnslvo stock kept by them at their stores .
J. L. Dillon had n collection of plants
from his hot houses.
D. Lowenberg's stnro was well repre
sented, but not so extensively as In former
years. Trunks, clothing, robes, Ac, mado
up the display.
The Woolen Mills reconsidered their
first determination, and showed a fine as.
sortmcnt of their fabrics.
J. A. Hess occupied space on tho west
alslo with a display of all kinds of shoes
from his up-town shoe store.
C. S. Furman exhibited harness and
Hartman & Edgar showed a fine lot of
Tho exhibit of A. 8. Truckcnmlllcr, of
Catawlssa, attracted constant attention. It
consisted of Japanese ware, some of which
was very beautiful and expensive. Ho
took a large number of orders for bla goods.
Among the art exhibits were photographs
and crayons from M'KUHp's studio. None
better can be found In or out of tho cities.
But tho great centre of attraction was
J. Saltzer's booth. Here an excellent or.
chestra, consisting of harp, violin and cor.
net, made beautiful music, and kept a
crowd constantly in attendance. Pianos
and organs and sewing machines were ex.
hlbited, and expert hands made badges
and souvenirs on the celebrated White
sewing machines, that were given away
wlih liberality, and which could be seen
anywhere and everywhere an tho grounds.
Saltzcr never lets himself be outdone by
anybody, and even tho brass band hired by
a rival failed to draw any attention away
In the carriage department were the
justly celebrated vehicles of M. C. Sloan &
Bro., nnd there was also somo very excel
lent work shown by Stiff & Maloy, and the
Scranton Wagon Co.
Tho work of L. M. Kelchner, done with
pen and ink, is worthy of especial men.
tlon. He is certainly a wonderful penman.
John Fox, apprentice to J. F. Caldwell,
displayed some fancy cakes of his own
make that would have dono credit to a
N. 8. Pursel snowed a box of bronzo
horse shoes that betokened unusual skill
In tho smithing art.
B. M. Hess had on exhibition an inven
tlon of his own a patent fruit picker, that
ought to fill the bill.
C Mcars & Bon had their washing ma
climes on exhibition. It was not necessary
to show them at the Fair. They .can be
seen in almost every house in this section,
and are growing In popularity.
J. A. Owens, of Lowlsburg, showed a
bronzo monument, for which ho Is agent.
Many of tho same kind have been erected
In Boscmont,and huve given entire satlsfac
The Wheeler & Wilson sewing machines
were exhibited by skilled operators. The
parlor cabinet is a handsome piece of furni
ture, nnd its manipulation changing It
from a table to a sowing machino was wit
nesscd by thousands. The Farmers' Pro
duce Exchange are the local agents
John M. Eves, of Millville, filled a space
with carriages and wagons.
II. G. Eshelman waa on hand with a fine
display of stoves and ranges.
A. Solledcr had a line of shoemaker's
But to attempt to notico all that was to
be seen in tho Main building would bo im
possible. There were thousands of things
of every kind nnd description. The prcm
lum list, which will probably bo ready next
week, will give tho names of thosn whoso
exhibits the judges considered most merl
The apartments allotted for poultry were
wtll tilled. A distinctive feature of the
exhibitors was that they brought quantity
as well as quality.
Chickens of neatly every variety were on
exhibition. Wo noticed that the Plymouth
Bocks took the lead, Iheso area hard)
fowl and doubtless our farmers know that
they are tho most profitable, both for layers
and for the table. The display of turkeys
was good, in fact, the best In the h'story
of the society they wero large, fat, and
showed good keeping, nnd a dcslro for tho
best on the part of the exhibitors. A pair
of whlto guineas, large and fnt, seemed to
wish to be beard, or to bo observed they
ktpt up a noise at the least provocation.
Tho ducks hud their place, and they kept
up their former records for plumpness
llko tho chickens, tho exhibitors look prtdo
In bringing a large number, and all of the
best varieties. In tho apartments allotted
for poultry wero Beveral families of rab
bits. The exhibit of B. B. Freas was fine.
He had rabbits of all colors, and it was
amusing to see them act their antics. They
occupied two of the large apartments,
The dogs also had their place. A fine
large Setter.a Shepherd and her family and
a Pug and her family, constituted tho varl
The slock exhibit was not as largo as It
should have been by tho farmers In tho
county. There seemed, doubtless, to bo a
backwardness, becauso of the exhibits from
the stock farms. This should not bo. Our
farmers have good breed of cattlo, but do
not give tlmo to currying and washing
their stock, as breeders do. Mr, E. II,
Llttlo had of the Holstclu breed, one cow,
ono bull and ono heifer. He has quito a
herd of the Holstclu on his farm, and
thinks them tho best. Tho three he bad
on exhibition were fine. Tho Jersey,
Graded Jersey, Aldcrney, and Graded Dur
ham were tho exhibits of our farmers.
Tho Graded Jersey and Graded Durham
took the precedence. A. 8. Shiner, of
Bedlngton stock farm, Northampton
county, had a herd of Holstclu, Ayerahire
Guernsey, Devon, Jersoy aud Swiss. Tho
Lackawanna Breeders' Association, of
Wnverly, N. Y had a special place for the
exhibit of their Holsteln cattle. They had
sixteen head on exhibition, Ono bull
weighed 2055 pounds. One of the cows
has a milk record of nearly w quarts,
Theso cattlo wero admired by all. The ex
hibit of horses wasonulto small there
seemed to bo but very llttlo Interest shown
In Half exhibits. In tha npartmcnts for
hogs were, tho Chester Whltc,Esftcx,Duroc
Jersey, Jersey Red, and Poland China,
Dr. Gardner's stock of Duroo Jersoy showed
good keeping. Among tha sheep wero the
Southdowns, Leicester, Hampshire Downs,
and Leicester And Hampshire Downs.
On tho eastern tide of the grounds near
tho judge's stand waa ono of tho largest
exhibitions of agrlcltural Implements and
machinery that has ever been seen at tho
Columbia County Fair. Extending at least
half way across tho grounds was to be seen
a line of reapers, threshers, plows, binders,
farm wagons, and everything useful In tho
occupation of farming.
At ono "nd of tho long lino Herring & Bav-
ago of Orangovlllo had on exhibition a
thresher and scoarator operated by an en
gine. Near by J. M. Ilulshlzcr of Light
street exhibited a thresher nnd separator
run by tread power.
Levi Cox Bhowed a hinge and roller gate
of his own Invention.
Jesse Beaver's Sons, Danville exhibited
Crown drills and fertilizers, manufactured
,by tho Crown Mfg. Co.j also plows by the
