Scales the High Wall at the Exposition
At football and baseball games the
small boy still has the record ' for
clever scheme for stealing his way
into the grounds, but at the fair last
night' a young lady. "of 1$ summers
took the cake. Police Officer Getchel
was standing near the entrance of the
pavilion when some heavy object
came down upon the sidewalk with
a thud. Rushing to the spot he found
a pretty miss who sprung up quickly
and escaped Into the crowd.
' Upon further examination It was
found that the pretty visitor had not
fallen from the sky but that she was
an earthly creature, pure and simple,
and had climbed the high board fence
and dropped over Inside the grounds
to save her 15 cents , to" spend for
candy. ', ", ':' ;,''.-' ''
The young lady was accosted later
by the police and questioned. She
said that she had money with which
to nav her way but was looking for
a friend. She was informed that she
had best go home and henceforth to
"enter In at the straight gate."

day at 10 o'clock when the special
from Union , carrying roore than 400
people arrived with V liberal quota
of school children to participate In
the festivities of today, centering in
and around education nd children.
Quickly forming in line at the de
pot under the direction of . General
A. J. Goodbrod and the teachers from
the Union schools, the delegation of
over 250 children paraded the streets
waving banners and screaming their
school yells lustily. r j ,;
The impression created by ' the
enthusiastic ; yet orderly behav
ior of the large group of children,
were extremely favorable with the
citizens and fair promoters. The
teachers, "guardians . and parents had
perfect control of the youngsters and
from the time that the crowd arrived
until the spelling, match vwas over,
deportment was excellent.' X",

enough, the accident was not a ser

bruised the most of any of the party.
