Talk ' about weather. "Why. if there
ever was a finer afternoon than we
have had on the fair grounds today
then the State Fair officials have no
record of It. The sport, too, has been
in keeping- with the weather, while the
attendence was the best ever seen by
any of the present fair officials on a
The day might well go down in his
tory as Durfee day, for W. G. Durfee,
of Los Angeles, brought home the win
ner in all three races, not losing a
heat of the eight. He did not ride in
the relay race. If he had he probably
would have bagged that also. The
track was fast, but no exceptional time
was made for the reason that Durfee
never had to extend his horses to their
limit of speed. In the 3-year-old the
best time was 2:15, in the 2:16 trot it
was 2:154 and in the 2:18 pace it was
2:08 M. His winners were, in the or
der named, Esperanza, F. S. "Whitney
and. White Sox.
Starter Fines Driver.
Another word must be said about the
starter, Mr. McNair. Some of the driv
ers got to monkeying yith his author
ity today and he fined one of them $310;
then came a warning of $25 if they
brought their horses up ahead of the
pole horse and there was no further
trouble, no more delays. Everything
moved, like clockwork from that time
Neither should the band and the Ad
Club Quartet be overlooked. Many
were heard to say today that never
has the fair had a better band in at
tendance than the Coos Bay band of
this year. As to the quartet, their
singing is surely delightful. They
gang through megaphones today, and
every word could be heard over all the
Hlaonner, Mayor Tozier, of the tenty
city, is enjoying himself as but opti
mists of his caliber can. He has this
year a new palace, a municipal palace,
a. royal residence on the site of the old
one, which was sold, torn down and
hauled away several weeks ago. The
present edifice houses the Mayor and
hie relics, bric-a-brac, crown jewels
and other paraphernalia pertaining to
royalty, as befits the dignity of the
office its occupant holds Mayor per
petual. It has been said he became
Mayor of the tent city 60 years ago,
but that is stretching it several years.
But there Is no one living who dares
to dispute that he was born before the
Job and can have it as long as he lives
The furnishing of the palace is not
yet completed for the reason that when
the remains of the old structure
were hauled away the draymen
carted off a lot of tin cans, bottles,
rusty wire and a large number of can
openers and corkscrews and a mass of
flotsam and jetsam not classified, not
capable of classification except by
As subjects Mayor Tozier now has
nearly 3000 people. As about every one
of them has an average of three favors
and two kicks a day to register it can
be seen that Hizonner's job is no snap.
But. Lord bless you, Albert smooths out
everything and everybody to the com
plete satisfaction of all. That is why
I say he is to enjoy the job as long
as he lives.
The streetcar service between the
city and the fairgrounds is far better
than ever before. The cars now are
run as a part of the Corvallis & East
ern Railway system and the service is
fine. It only costs a nickel from any
part of the city. As to the people liv
ing anywhere along the Southern Pa
cific lines they should remember that
all trains on that road stop at the fair
gates both to let off and take on pas
sengers. Today all incoming trains
over that line have brought in large

today say that during the last three
years he has visited over a dozen so

and not one of them could touch for

exhibits the present fair. In the thick

are much larger numbers of animals
exhibited, especially horses and cattle.
But in quality, this gentleman said, our
Oregon State Fair stands fully up to
Any of them;
It is a duty we owe the state and
ourselves to attend this fair. It is not
a. money-making affair. There is- no
gambling allowed on the grounds.
Every dollar taken in goes into the
state treasury. It is a public enter
prise and we owe it as a duty of our
citizenship to make it successful.
As to how it stands abroad, it is only
necessary to cite one circumstance. One
of the horse owners now here with a
string of five horses came from Mani
toba. To get Ji's animals across the
line to attend this fair he had to put
up a bond of $50,000. Our people can
come without bond and almost without

OREGON CITY, Or., Sept 29. (Spe

Mrs. Florence Sohn, the girl-mother of
19 years, shot her two infant children
and then turned the gun on herself,
but it was not until yesterday that she
displayed the first sign of emotion.
For several days Dr. Giesy, of Aurora,
had been attempting to learn the girl's
account of the morning she shot her
children, but each question was evaded
unanswered. Monday the physican drew
from the mother a rough account of
the events of the morning of the trag

"Sohn left his wife for the hop fields
about 7 o'clock that morning, and I
asked her if she had any previous
thought of committing the deed and she
told me that the plan came to her in
an instant and that she carried it out
while in a daze. She cannot remember
distinctly Just what she did and I did
not ask her the details of -the shooting.
"At first I thought she was tempor
arily demented when she used the gun,
and my conversation Monday morning
sustains that opinion. Now she is nor

Monday morning, she has been able to
hold back her emotion.

she was five years old. I believe that
she has seen a hard life."

CAREFUL GRADING URGED
Professor Xietvis Appeals to Growers
to Slarket Only Best Fruit.
OREGOX AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE,
Corvallis. Sept. 29. (Special.) Based
on the rumor that some of the fruit
growers' association are planning to
use below-grade fruit in their second
class grades, an appeal not to do that
this year has been prepared by Profes
sor Lewis, the Agricultural College hor
ticulturist, and sent to fruitgrowers'
associations and individual growers.
The apple crop throughout the United
States and Canada Is large, while the
European market Is limited. For this
reason, says the letter to the fruit men,
it Is necessary to be careful in grading.
Growers are earnestly advised to
keep the supply of small and. inferior
fruit at home and work it up into by
products. SHERIDAN SHOW IS GREAT
