Just notice the throng of peopb going in with empty hands and baskets, and coming out witij arm loads and baskets ivell filled. Then you will be convinced that IIIEWIVS VEICK FRONT Js the Flaw to Get Big Bargains, They are there, come and be convinced, Business at the Brick will be better than ever was known in a Jjaos store.

Why? Because goods are cheaper and a bigger stogk to select from. Bee the great crowds that visit the Brick Front That is evidence enough to support what we pay, New customers are coming every day. They want to spend their cash where it will go the farthest and get the latest and best goods.

Those ladies Shoes are the biggest bar gains ever offered in Lane for the money, and those Boots you will certainly buy at sight, and those Rubber Snag Boots can't be beat.

JJpw then just look at the THE TIMES' CAMPAIGN RAT is an arbitrary word used to designate the only bow (ring) which cimnot be pulled 08 the watch. Whatever may be said of the success of the fair at Lincoln Fark, during the past week; only one general conclusion can be drawn and that is, that many strangers were brought to the city who have perhaps never been drawn heie before, and in this way introduced ourselves, our beautiful park and many advantages, together with our trade advantages that will be an incentive to bring them back again to trade. We talked with many stpaogew who were surprised at the fin samples of grain, th great array of fancy work, iiuit and flowers, cattle, hogs, horses and other stock that had been brought together the short time that had been allotted to working up the fair. Thursday was the big day of the feir when between 1,500 and 1,600 people were on the ground, and all seemed to be enjoying themselves in the cool shade of the trees, In watching thfl races, viewing the exhibits and taking in the ball game. Friday the attendance was not so large, but was a pleasant crowd (hat seemed to have come out for a day pf recreation and pleasure.

Taking into consideration the close times, the attendance was all that could be expected, and the order on the grounds- was good, and a credit to the management and police. No disturbance of any kind was brought to our notice, and but one or two were seen that were in the least under the influence of liquor. Gambling devices that are usually thick on the grounds of our country fairs were not allowed to enter, and no one was fleeced out of their money by sharks and sharpers intruding their presence upon the grounds. Muci interest seemad to be taken in the special premiums, and especially the painting lessons offered by Mrs. Addie Martin for the best cake baked by girl under 16, and best pie baked by girl under 12 years of age.

Five entries of cakes were made, and the prize was carried off by Miss Eva Vent, a little 12 year old girl living east of the city. Two entries of pies were made, Miss Minnie Brown, 11 years old, being the lucky one that will get the lessons. Several entries of corn were made, but A. L. hite was the gentlemen that drew the special offered by The Light, and he will for the next year read the best paper published in Franklin county.

Also Wm. Ensel who had the be6t half bushel of wheat Four 5-lb. lots of butter competed for the special prize offered by J. H. Hlelep, all of which were exceedingly fine, but Mrs.

J. W. Wright was the lucky otje and will wear the $3 pair of shoes offered. The fruit display was exceedingly fine, and shows what can be raised in that line in this county. There was sixty-one entries made in this department and the premiums were distributed between Chas Floyd Martin, M.W.

Lby.W. H. Hamacher. L. W.

Glinkman. Bart Ford, J. W. Weight and Mrs. Smith.

In the; pantry stores there was also a large number of entries, the greatest number, forty-one premiums being carried off by Mrs. Chas. Glink-man, although several others had splendid jellies, preserves, etc. there aud shared the honors with her. The art department and other parts of the tabernacle.

was crowded full of articles that deserve special mention would our of it, bufteing crowded for room we will only stop to mention the fine shells from the western coast exhibited by Warner Burks. About sixty entries of horses of all classes and grades, was made, a great many from the farms around this place and was a show of the excellent gradeB of horses we can afford. The cattle department was represented by Jerseys, Herfords and Uur-bams, and the premiums wero carried o'T by Henry and A. ailing-ford on Jerseys and Fred Sparks on Pui'hams. There was a good lot of hogs, the pens all being full and premiums we tfrkeii by A.

Davigon, Gus Parker and E. 'Ihomas. There were thirty-two entries in the poultry department covering nearly the whole list of breeds, which made this one of the finest poultr shows ever held at it his place. The premiums were scattered among several diSerent breeders. The racing was one of the attractions of the fair in much intep- The Kansas City Times Here's the Idea The bow has groove on each end.
