ant in charge, Arthur H. Moore, stepped
out for a few momenta. When Moore
returned and opened the door, Cham
berlain was standing upright in the
window holding on to the lower part of
the window sash, which was about on a
level with his head, with his body, out
side and facing the attendant inside.
Upon seeing Moore he seemed to stand
hesitatingly for a moment, and placing
the palms of his hand9 againet the pane
of glass, turned to look over his left
shoulder and deliberately pushed him
self away from thebuilding,falling about
forty feet to the ground beneath, where
he struck on the left side of his bead,
breaking his neck, which resulted in in?
stant death. Chamberlain was about
thirty-seven years of age, a resident of
Washington county and had been an in

Before the race, Pathmount, who holds
a record of 2 :09, was the favorite, but be
fore th,e first heat was half over everyone
saw plainly that he was not in a condi
tion to win the race, and when they
came under the wire Island Lass was in
the lead, with Deceiver second, while
Pathmount came in considerably in the
rear. The time made was 2:25, which
lowered the record ef last Wednesday
one-half secon'd, and the previous record
three seconds. Deceiver won the next
heat by his own length ahead of Island
Lass, with Pathmount in the rear again.
The following two heats were a repeti
tion of the second, which gave Deceiver
first money, and Island Lass second, the
average time being about 2 :24. .

were Kisbar, Hero, Dick Trumbill and
Barney. Kisbar took the lead in the
first Leat and easily won it, with Hero
second and Barney third. Time 2:59.
The second heat was won by Hero, who
got under the wire a trifle ahead of Kis
bar, However, Kisbar made up his loss
in the third heat, Barney coming in sec
ond, with Hero third, which entitled
Kisbar to first money and the race.
The next was the running race, and a
great deal more interest was taken in
this than'in the two previous races. The
entries were Gus D, Mamie D, Sally
Goodwin, New Moon and Black Alder.
The latter took the lead from the start
and came under the wire ahead, with
Sally Goodwin second, and Gus L. third,
having made the five-eights in 1 :0.
The last was three-eights mile dash,
for a $100 purse, between Jim Corbett,
Harry N and Jim Crow. The start was
even, but Jim Crow lead out at (he quar
ter pole and beat the other two horses in
the first heat by several lengths. Jim
Corbett came in second. The second
heat decided the race, but was much
closer than the first.
This ended the races for Friday, which
was in every .regard the most successful
day at the fair.
In the evening almost a thousand' peo
ple crowded the iavillion to view the
exhibits and listen to the select program,
which was rendered bv the orchestra
and Shield's company. The interest
shown by each and every one was suffici
