It Was Distinctly a Farmers' Day,
the Agriculturists Being1 in tho
Majority The Pacing and Trot
ting Races Were, as Usual, the
Greatest Attractions The Balloon
Ascension Burglars Entered the
Treasurer's Offlco but Couldn't Get
Into Safe Containing 91,600.
From n Spcclil Cori(punlcnt.
Datlas, Oct. B. The last day of tho
fair hero brought out a groat attend
ance, over 0,000, tho largest of the
meeting. The morning was cloudy and
threatening, and there were several
slight showers, but about noon tho
clouds parted, tho sun camo out warm
and full and tho crowds began to eomu
in In large bunches, most of them via
wagons and rigs and direct from tho
rural regions.
Yesterday was tho town-dwellers'
day. Today It Is just as distinctly
farmers' day, and tho sun-burned,
rugged faces of tho rustle, citizen bur
nished and glistening with vigorous
apllcntlons of yellow soap and soft
water are In tho majority. Why It is
that the average farmer dons a black
suit of clothes and his spnuo a blnck
dress preparatory to driving many
miles through yellow dust Is an open
Question. But most of them aie thus
attired, and tho wrinkles in their dress
arc filled with layers of the floating
loam and sand that their hotses scat
ter in clouds as they toil along the
parched roads.
Tho fakirs are using a vast amount
of lung power In proportion to the ef
fect their utterances have upon the
crowds. One manager, of a vaudeville
aggregation on tho Midway almost rc
lanses into tears as lie tells of tho
enormous expense he is under to please
the fair patrons, but the ones he Is
pleading with listen unmoved in most
cases. Some of tho catch-penny gentry
have resorted to sandwich men to ad
vertise their shows. There arc mote
fakirs at this fair than at any other
that has been held in this section this
All Kinds of Vehicles.
The lawns arc well filled with every
description of vehicle propelled by
horse power, man power and motive
power. At the time the races wore
called the grand-stand was packed and
the brilliant colors worn by tho women
folks lent an added animation to the
already vivacious scene. At 2 o'clock
it -was estimated that there -were over
6,000 persons inside tho high board
fence enclosing the grounds, making
this tho banner day of this year's fair.
The trolley car line from Wilkes-I3arrc
to. Dallas gave better service today
than it did yesterday, but still the sup
ply of cars was unequal to the demand
and much inconvenience resulted.
The horses were notified to get ready
for the first race at 1.30 o'clock. It
was forty minutes after when thev
were ready to got going. The equine
beauties commanded admiration as
they paraded up and down the home
stretch getting "warmed up." A race
horse is a born actor, it is quite evi
dent. Starting from the foot of tho
stretch on a gentle trot, as ho nears
the grand-stand ho arches his neck,
distends his nostrils, pounds the ground
with his hoofs In a thunder nf hoof
beats, shakes tho flakes of foam fiom
his jaws, sending it Jlyingito his flanks
and with dilated eye cranes his head
around to tho applauding spectators as
he goes past tho stand in a fierce
whirl. "When ho gets a little ways be
yond he subsides Into a lamb-like
docility, and walks back quietly to the
starting point, where once more he
becomes an animal filled with fire and
mettle. These tactics are repeated until
the race is started.

Then ho goes steadily along all tho
way around tho circle until ho nonrs

Imbued with tho idea of "plnylng to
tho grand-stand" and as he comes In

The Citizens' band, of Plymouth,
pleased the large crowds by its con
cert previous to tho heat and by Its
rendition of good music between heats
allnycd tho tedium of waiting.
Tho exhibits brought to the grounds
for premiums have been all Judged and
at 3.30 tho dismantling of tho prettily
decorated departments commenced.
Only tho bare walls remained an hour
afterward. There weie more exhibits
on view this year thnn over before In
tho history of tho association. Owing
to their great variety the Judges had
a hard task before them, but they seem
to have given satisfaction.
The otllclals of the speed events were
tho same as on tho previous two davs
of racing, with Starter William B.
Moore, of Wllkes-Darre, presiding. The
first race was for tho three-minute
class horses. Tho full description of
this and the 2.17 class trot follow:
First Race.
3.00 class, trottcn and pacers; mile heats, best
three in five; purse, $100.
rirst heat Thero were hut three starters out
of the list of i,k named candidates, one each
from .Scranton, West I'ittston and Wilkes-Barre,
respectively, Prince Klfiln, Nora Mack and .1. C.

It was n good lace to the quarter, Nora Mack
and J. C. I". RolnR alonn side by side, the for
mer having an advantage of n head ner the lat
ter when the pole was passed. Time, 3D?i sec
onds. These two kept on almost even terms up to
the half-mile, in l.lOVi, at that time .1. O. 1.
brlnir a noso In front of Nora, with Elgin five
length behind. At the sK furlong mark, In
1.5S, they were still fighting for supremacy, with
no advantage on either side. Coming Into tho
stretch for the Journey home Elgin came fast
and .is they swung the turn was ahead of J. C.
P., who was running, hut the Scranton horsa
could not keep the pare and .1. C, P. followed
Nora Mack home a head In front of Elgin. Time,
Sciowl heat The field of three again got away
the lii.-t time. At the quarter, which was made
in as seconds, Nora Mack and J. O. 1. were on
even terms, with Prince Klgin hilf a length in
the rear; at tho half the three horses could have
been covered with a blanket,' none of them hav
ing an inch to spare. Time of half, 1.17. The
pretty race kept up almost to the six furlong
pole, when J. 0. 1. commenced to lag a little,
but the other two were still equal. Time, l.CflVa
Coming into the turn the Wilkes-Barre mare
caught up again and the field finished in a whip
ping drive, Nora beating Klgin a head, while .7.
C. P. was only the same distance behind. Time
of heat, 2.3714.
Third heat Once more they got away at tho
first trial. At the first quarter the three horses
were tied, at tho half Nora, .1. C. P. and Elgin
were only heads apart in the older nimed. At
the six furlong polo Elgin was leading by a neck,
with both competitors close up. At the time
they passed under the wire Nora was ahead half
a length, with Elgin as far In front of .1. C. P.
Time by quarters was, 39 seconds, 1.10, 1.57t,

First heat Five starters out of seven named.
W. O. Bradley got the pole in the drawing, with
I.i7?ie Laning second, Callio K. third, Mable W.
fourth and Kzr.i A. fifth. After three attempts
they were sent away in two flics and W. O.
Bradley stepped out, chased in good style
by Callio K these two going in lively style,
the chestnut mare leading by a nose in the
record time for tho track of 33 seconds, a 2.12
gait. All the way around tho two leaders fought,
but Callio K. forged in front a little more .it
the half mile in LOST,, leading Bradley by a
head, with Ea A. next, a length behind. There
was no change in position when three-fourths
of their journey was done in 1.41, but on the
way homo M?jie I.aning shot past Ura A. and
gained on Bradley, but the distance was too
short and the horses were only heads apait, fin
ishing with Callio first, Bradley second, Lizzie
was first, lliadlcy second and Mable W. third, in
lengths behind the bunch. Callie K. tho winner
of tho heat is a daughter of l'ocohontas and Sim
and tills is her first season in fast company,
she being but four years old and her best record
last year being only 2.40. Her record of 3i
seconds for the quarter is wonderful, considering
tho dusty, heavy track, and it can safely be pre
dicted that next season she will bo away up in
front in tho big circuit,
Second heat This heat was delayed a while
for the balloon ascension, but the horses were
called as soon as the acroniut landed. The bell
was tolled lo call them back seven times before
tho word was glcn. At the quarter Callie K.
was first, Bradley second and Mable W. third ,in
clo,e order. The half showed no change in posi
tion. The three-quarter pole showed the same

surreyion tho tiadc, drawn by hla fast team
Wanda and Ninny Time, and went half a mlla
for a track double-team record. The first quarter
was made in .18 seconds nml tho half In 1.15.
