secutive year tho gates of the grounds
devoted to the exposition of the Co
lumbia County Agricultural, Horticul
tural and Mechanical association -were
swung open, and business-looking teams
began to arrive early this morning and
kept up In steady procession all daV.
All goods necessary to make this fulr
one of the greatest successes In Us his
tory were delivered before night. The
fair grounds, which are situated on a
large tract of level land a short dis
tance from the business section of
Bloomsburg and are easily accessible,
look tonight, with their streets lined
with -white tents, like a regimental en
campment. Every foot of space around the main
exhibition hall and the various en
trances has been leaped. Over 3,000 en
tries of exhibits for premiums have
been recorded upon the secretary's
books, and many ignore were seeklnc
admission at 6 o'clock tonight, keeping
the secretary and his large corns of
assistants extremely busy.
The fair association has taken a spe
cial Interest In securing "Midway" at
tractions such as Bloomsburg has never
before seen. There will be Interest Inu
doings every minute during the entire
fair week. There arc a great number
of entertainments under cover of can
vas, and the person who goes to the
fair to have a gay time will have only
himself to blame If he doesn't get it.
Grounds on the Level.
Nearly all the county fairs of North
eastern Pennsylvania are located on
top of the steepest and most Inacces
sible hill In their neighborhood. This
association has displayed good com
mon sense in laying out their grounds
on a level, convenient and easily
rpached tract of land only a few min
utes' walk from the depots of the bor
oush, aid stone sidewalks run to Its
The grounds Inside the high board
fences are laid out for the convenience
of the visitor. The main entrance Is
beside the secretary's ofllce and rlcht
In front of it Is a long street lined with
canvas houses, log cabins and rough
board shacks, where refreshments and
games of all kinds, except games of
chance, may be found. Going along
side the fence the first department Is
reached, that of poultry. There are on
exhibition hero more than 1,000 pairs
of fowls, including pigeons, turkevs,
creese, chickens and all feathered
In front of the poultry department is
the mammoth exhibition hall, more
than 300 feet lone; and wide and hieh.
Arranged along Its sides are the dis
plays of local and county merchants
and a rich variety of goods Is set forth.
In the center Is a partition and on
either side of it is tastefully arranged
tempting and luscious fruits, home
made pastry and bread, preserves,
fancy needlework, paintings of all
kinds, vegetables and all that consti
tutes an agricultural and horticultural
Machinery of All Kinds.
Pollowlns the fence along the spec
tator comes upon a bewildering aggre
gation of farming implements and
machinery of all kinds and for every
conceivable purpose, from the little
hand-power corn shelter to the trlnnt
steam plough and roadmaker. Near
this department arc four huge circular
tents filled with the choicest products
of rival carriage and wagonmakers.
At the head of the streets and the
exhibition hall there is tho "Midway"
with its many alluring signs and pic
tures flapping in the breeze and beck
oning the passerby to venture within
Its attractive, "snowy canvas tents.
Some of these side Bhows have ample
accommodations for large audiences,
and tho artist who painted the enticing
pictures swung In front of them did a
good day's work,
At the right hand of the main en
trance are tho stables and stalls for
horses, cattle, swine and sheep, and
they extend half-way around the radius
of the circular track. The horses en
tered for premiums and for tho races
are many. The cattle entries aro also
numerous, the herds numbering from a
dozen to twenty-live and representing
the following breeds: Dutch belted,
Devons, brown Swiss, Guernseys, Jer
ieys and red polled. The swine Include
exhibits of Poland China, Berkshire,
Chester White, Duroc and Tamworth,
while tho sheep ure present in Quan
tity and quality.
The races for tho next three days
have brought out 114 entries for the
13,45 offered in purses. The first race
f the fair will be called tomorrow at
Special excursions for the fair have
been scheduled on five railroads enter
ing Bloomsburg, and big crowds are
Tho dining hall privileges have been
leased tn the Bloomsbitrg Normal
luhool, and a turkey dinner and all
lhat goes with It Is being served by

lober breezes and does not cave to wait
If this hall Is crowded will find an op.
portunlty to dine In more than a dozen
other places on the grounds, One res
taurant Is run by the ladles of St.
John's Lutheran church, of Catuwlssa;

, sure retulti.
still another by tho Patriotic Order
Sons of America, of Oatawlsso.
Last year's fair Is looked Upon as tho
biggest In tho history of the county.

Just before .1 o'clock this morning the sleeping
inhabitants of this burp, were rudely awakened
by the startling cry of fire, the v Igorous ringing
of the alarm in the court house tower and the
frantic shrieks of numerous whistles. Montrosi
tumbled out of lied, jumped huriiedly Into its
e-lothes and hastened out into the frosty moininp
air. The cause of ail this pioved to be a slight
conflagration that had started in the house of
John McCavvley, on Lake avenue. The stove-pipe
running through the kitchen attic and thence
into the chimney, had fallen apart above the
