From i Plait Carresronilcnt.
UIoomstnirK, Oct. 11.-A vast thronj?.
variously estimated at between 25,000
and 3O,n00 persons, filled every foot of
available space today of the grounds
of the Columbia County Amlcultural
and Mechanical asroclatlon. It was
the'' third day of tbo fair held hero and
like vosterdny bro!oall records In
matter of attendance. The huge fjran'l
etnnd, with a eoatlnsj rapacity of 5,000,
was crammed full, over a thousand'
persons standlnK whllJ the trotting
and purlnK races were run off- On the
Midway tbe crowds that surged up
and clown the spaflnus grassy streets
made travel slow and laborious.
The various entertainment!) on this
j-art of the fair Rroundo Wero well pat
ronised, fiom the canvas lent where
h man Is burled alive ti the Moorish
Pillar and "Hosco. who eats 'cm
alive." In the field opposite the
Ki-anrl-stand, there nro over a thous
and posts for hitching purposes, and
yesterday afternoon e ery one of them
held fawt one or motv horses. It was
n great gatherlnc; of happy, well
dressed city ond rustic folks, all out
for a good" time and most of them
neemed to get what they cams for. If
they did not It certainly was not the
fault of the fair managers, for their
efforts to make this their best exposi
tion wero Hucccssful.
The three races scheduled for the af
ternoon werf run off with clock-like
regularity, and after a very short time
the drivers or the lust nlepper-J dldtov
ttretl that starter Smith was not going
tc. be played with nor allow any dil
atory tactics. In the first races he
Imposed a line of $t0 on one driver for
loitering, and after that they were ex
tremely an-lous to plpase him. Hc
iween the laces the fl.Ofln spectators In
the grand-Ma ml had the tedium of
waiting between heats allayed by a
vaudeville performance on the plat
foim opposite. Here there were given
a couple of actobatlc turns by clever
.racialists, a tiour": of trick doss, two
of whom fight a good four-round boul,
u hoing match between a woman
idutrgcr and a man, the latter having
the worst of the engagement, and then
there were dog races in single, double
and four-in-hand carts.
The exhibits displayed in the mam
moth main hall were all viewed by
thii judges yerterclav and their decis
ions Tendered. Over .:,000 in premium
money for this blanch ot the fflr will
be disbursed to fnrtunaln winners.
The cattle, poultry. s.vine and sheep
have elso been awarded their blue and
red llhl-ons. The list of winning pre
miums would occupy more than a page
of The Tribune, fo I shall not send it.
The first race of tho 0;y was called

HOW HE KEPT HIS CROWD.
Amusing: Incident Which Happened
to a Bryan Spell-binder.
Fiom the Saturday Evening Post.
In the campaign of 1S06 It came to
the attention of leading Democrats
that an unknown orator In a certain
western state was making a mighty
stir among tho people, winning from
the Itepubllcans the expressive title of
"Tho Singed Cat." Several letters
from Democrats in adjoining counties
were soon received, asking that this
orator be sent to them, and testifying
to the convincing power of his argu
ments. But, according to tho story as
it Is rcitiently related in Democratic
headquarters, the supreme test of this
spellbinder's power over an audience
came when hu was addressing a mass
meeting In a densely packed skating
rink. Mischievous young men got out
the village fire engine, hauled It In
front of the rink, and pounded Its gong
with a violence that, for a moment,
completely drowned the voice of the
orator Inside the building. Ills audi
ence started to stampede, but he
checked tho movement by a command
ing gesture. Then, placing his left
hand upon tho top of his head, he
