Taken all in all, the fair, which closed
today, has been far superior to any ever
held here. The races have been excep
tionally good, and have been conducted
with fairness. Everybody seems satis
fied with the meeting, and that the fair
of 1895 will be still better, -attended
eeema assured. ' .
The music in the old Cheoniclk office
is of a crude kind but there is whole lots
of it. Property values have fallen 75
per cent in three days, for a distance of a
block in all directions from, that classical
corner. The band . may, properly be
classed along with the balance of the
- show as "birds.".
Anita, owned' b$ J. O. Mack of The
Dalles, lowered the trotting record for
this track yesterdayby 1 seconds. The
record heretofore has been 2.30 and was
made by Little Joe two or three years
ago. A The record Anita established yes
terday means some pretty fast trotting
as the track is a half mile one and much
faster time could be made on a larger
circle. The attendance yesterday was
the largest in several years. The grand
stand was filled' with spectators, many
of whom were, ladies. The day wast
superb-no wind and bright sunshine.
Mt. Adams looked upon the scene from
his lofty height and didn't grow restless
as many did, when the horses wouldn't
The band .was upon the ground and
played selections between the beats
which were welt received and appreci
ated by the audience. . Th'e crowd was
estimated anywhere from 800 to 1000.
The stock judges had made their
awards and the winners proudly wore
their variously colored ribbons.which
were losens oi superiority. , : .
Many visitors called at the Stall of
Rockland Boy to see how the injured
horse was progressing. His foot ia iria
plaster of Paris cast and if he doesn't
allow -it to be hurt in any way will
probably attain some degree of strength.
There were more races scheduled yes
terday than the daylight would permit
to occur. The trotting race was so
closely contested and took so long to, de
cide the winner that the novelty race
had to be postponed till today. The
judges called out the trotters soon after
2 o'clock and Anita, Hamrock. Carle
Carne and Montana responded. In the
pools- Anita sold as the favorite. 'The
four animals were in splendid condition
and as all have splendid records a class
race was the result. In the first heat",
after a good start, they went aronnd the
track in a bunch, Anita slightly in the
lead. This order was ' maintained till
near the wire, when Hamrock shot
aneaa ana won tne neat, with Anita a
close ' second ; Carle Carne third and
Montana fourth; time, .2.39. In this
beat Hamrock and Montana both broke
badly at different times and it was only
by a splendid burst of speed that Ham
rock won the heat. In the next heat
Anita broke the track record, trotting
the mil in 2. 28o, Hamrock second,
Carle Carne third and Montana fourth
Anita- is a wonderfully steady trotter
and is never een to break. Anita won
tne third heat; time 2.36. The other
horses finished in the same position as
the former heat.
The bicycle race was now announced
and the young men who were to- com'
pete for the medal rode upon the track.
The contestants were: H. C, French,
Mr. Riggs, Bert Barrett, D. S. Dufur,
George Dufur and. Ehren Korten. The
distance was a mile and the race proved
to be a hotly contested and interesting
one. From the start it was easily seen
the contest lay between Mr. French and
Mr. Riggs and all eyes were turned on
them as they swung in the home stretch
with even wheels. The time down the
stretch was very fast, and no one could
tell the winner.till Riggs passed under
the wire first with French two feet be
hind him ; time 3.11. This contest was
as much enjoyed as any of the horse
The trotters were now called out for
the fourth heat and Anitia was picked
upon for the winner. Hamrock kept his
feet however, and won by a short dis
tance ; Anita 2nd ; Carl Carne 3rd and
Montana 4th; time 2 :34. - As Anita and
Hamrock had each won two heats a fifth
one was necessary to decide the race.
But . while . the trotters were . being
warmed up the running horses were
called out. Jim Crow, I Don't Know,
Tampa and Blue Jay took their places at
the pole but it was nearly an hour before
the horses got away. Jim Crow started
in by being' unmanageable and tore
around in such a way as to make the
jockey's seat an insecure one. . When he
became quieted down and ready to go,
Blue Jay became obstinate and then the
other horses took their turn until it
rooked as though a start never would be
had. Finally they all wheeled around
and crossed the line heads even. It was
a pretty race, and only won by I Donjt
Enow in a close finish, Tampa second ;
time 0.51. This is the fastest time on
record on the' track, but does not beat
any record, as the same time was made
several years ago.
The crowd eagerly waited for the last
heat in the trotting race, although it
was nearly dark when the horses took
their positions. ' Anita won the heat
and race, Hamrock second, Carle Carne
third, and Montana fourth ; time 2.29.
This closed the day, and the crowd went
home feeling they had had a day of
pleasure. Everyone was satisfied with
the races and the chance of seeing so
many people together at one time.
We are sorry more of our country lolk
haye not attended the fair. The meet
ing is more for them than anyone else;
and they have really missed an oppor
tunity for pleasure. We don't speak of
their absenee com plain in gly, but only
wish they had been present for their
own good. It would be a break in the
routine of their lives, and give them
something to remember and think
about. ' The Dalles would have been
glad to have shown hospitality to all
that would partake. v
A GREAT CROWD AT THE PAVILION
Five hundred people thronged the
pavilion last evening, looking at the ex
hibits and hearing the music. The
school children were out in full force,
and many of their parents came also
lne receipts at the door were quite
large. All those who were present re
mained till a late hour, and many pleas
ing expressions relative to the success of
the entertainment, and display were
heard. The only thing to be regretted,
as has already been -expressed, was the
absence ' of people from out of town
The display from citizens of The Dalles
was very fine, and what there was from
the country was just as good, only there
wasn't enough of it. Hood River, and
many other places that could have sent
fine exhibits, were hardly represented
at all: The judges ha4 pinned the rib
bons on the winning exhibits, and those
who owned them received congratula
tions. ' , , ,
The music of the orchestra was much
applauded by the audience, and they
were compelled to respond to several
encores. A new selection, descriptive of
a steamboat race on the Mississippi
was rendered in a realistic manner,
The crowd of listeners around the or
chestra stand showed how much tha
music was liked. V
Last night was the last of the exhi
bits, and iis close was marked in a fit'
ting manner by the large attendance
This mo'rning the exhibits are being re
moved, in order to give room for the
ball this evening.
Many, for the first time saw the sul
kies with pneumatic tires at the fair
this year. It is claimed they enable
faster time to be made. Anita and
Carie Carne both had them yesterday.
One individual was heard to remark,
Here comes the horse with the rheu
matic tires." ,
Tickets for the ball tonight are, gen
tlemen 75 cents ; ladies free.
This, is by far tbe best fair in several
years. The races have been of a very
high . order, and the exhibits were
first-class. We are told the money re
ceipts have been very good, and equalled
anticipations. It is hoped the ball 1
night will raise them still larger.
The management showed wisdom in
placing the' pavilion exhibits down town.
This was clearly provea by the crowd in
attendance last evening.
The hall tonight at tbe pavilion prom
ises to be' the event of the season.
The , stock ' parade took place this
morning, as advertised, and the animals
made a fine showing.
Hood River has a fine supply of water
for irrigating purposes on the west side.
Those who use the water want to re
member that in tne bands of a person
not educated in its Use irrigation is dan
geroua. ' It is a seemingly empty gun,
but it is well loaded. Too late irriga
tion will cause too late growth, and if
hard 'winter follows, the total de
struction of the trees. Water should
not be applied later than August, and
earlv in August at that. Another
pointer is that in irrigating countries
trees should not be pruned so closely.
More . top should be left to absorb the
sap, especially where the irrigation ex
tends -.into August. For this serves to
allow the flow to cease that much quiCke
and consequently the wood to harden

element of beauty. Ayer's Hair "Vigor

eases. It gives perfect satisfaction. -
