Tho Becond day.of tho big fair opined
with a boom and except for a rather
high wind tho conditions were all that
could bo desired. Tho exhibits wore
augmented by a largo amount of
high-class productions while the local
merchants continued to pile up tholr
displays and worlc for tho territory's
good In every way.
County Exhibit a.
Notably among the county exhibits
cau bo mentioned tboso of Lincoln
Logan Payno and I) counties. Such
a display as Is in evidenco for the
judgeB would havo a tendency to be-
wilder and puzzlo tho most expert and
1'ayne county Is long on fruit and
vegetables wheat and corn; Lincoln
wins high pralso on all tho abovo and
chbllungus comparison on her lino
cotton display; Logan Is thoro with a
bewildering ntid extensive showing
while far-away D clear over In the
short-grass country tho land where it
is popularly supposed that It Is only
possiblo to ralso long-horn cattle and
prairlo dogs comes to tho front with a
display of vegetation and iiorliculture
that knocks tho aforesaid Ideas into a
cocked hat. The ox hi bit Is in charge
of W. J. McDonald of Iolu who lias It
displayed to tho best possiblo advant-
age Henry Hanson anit Leo Tlllery
of D county aro tho largeut contribut
era to the exhibit. Upland cotton
corn Itnfllr corn wheat wild and
tamo grasses pumpkins etc aro dis-
played and will do a great deal to ad-
vertise tho woit sldo. Will ICuipo of
tho l'ayno county exhibit remarked
when he saw tho magnificent showing
of his western rival: "Well they havo
got us out-pumpkined and out-cabbaged
but wo will equal them on the
rest of tho exhibit." Tho rivalry is
friendly and will do much to publioh
to tho world the boundless fertility ot
At the Hulls nrul l'cin.
Exhibits of swine sheep cattle
poultry otc . contlnuo to arrive and
carpenters aro busy preparing quar-
ters. ThoBwino exhibit la alono worth
tho prlco of admUslon. Itlrd fanciers
will bo delighted with tho grand show
Ing made in high-class poultry whllo
lovers of pure bred stock will bo grati-
fied that Oklahoma can produce cattle
and sheep such as aro on exhibition.
Frlsbv .fc Son deserve special mention
for their exhibit of Jersey slojk which
will challenge tho southwest for
Jerry Ulmpion Urntcs.
Tho Hon Jerry Simpson was on ttmo
and after an introduction by Delegate
Callahan mado one of bis character
istic speeches on freo silver freo trado
and against court injunctions. It was
a straight out political speech brist-
ling with wit Ho gavo Tom Heed a
few pointers but praised Dennis
Flynn. He proceeded to ridicule the
tariff bill by saying that the Itepubli-
oan party placed a tariff on wheat to
protect tho farmer against tho Import
ation of foreign pauper wheat and
that was the reason It was bringing a
good price. His eiTort at the tent on
the government acre last night was In
lino with his previous opeoeh and the
orowdod tont that groetcd him ap
plauded and laughed In turn as the
Bpeaker waxed elcquont or sarcastic
in turn. Jerry is strong with the
common people and his long suit Is
his plain and common sense methods
lor tho remedy of existing govern-
mental evils. Jsrry as a winning and
satisfactory card is a great suecefes.

DOCTCraS CONDEMN HAIR-PIN.
hay It la the Hoot ot Jinny I'.vlla of the
A recent fniiot in halrdrrsalng Is
distinguished by it- most singular and
unusual origin. It has been adopted
to preserve the sanity of tho fair wom-
en who have had recourse to It Bay
the New York World. Montnl balance
as it has long been suippcted nnd re-
cently strongly nlllrmed by physicians
of repute Is almost always injured and
frequently utterly undermined by thu
wearing of hairpins. And now that tha
truth Is out women havo shown that
there Is nt least one absurd fcmlulno
custom to which thoy nro not bo tndls.
Bolubly bound by vanity that they must
forever cling to It. And tho very nat-
urn! wish to retain ono's reason ban
boon the moans ot abolishing tho steel
hairpin. The head arguo tho scien-
tists who have mndo a study ct this
matter la the most seiiBltlvo portion ot
a woman's anatomy and tlio ono which
dm frequently ahtiBes tho most violent-
ly. She Is qulto llkoly to fix upon n
nerve center as tho permanent Bpot for
doing her colls ot hair or persistently
to Jab with r.n ugly hnlrpln the regions
which should be kept free from tho
Bllghtest touch. Tho back of tha head
Is one ot the most sensitive of places
yot from the time a womnn first wcara
long gowns until she dies huo wilfully
Ignores ami defies this aunsltlvenefs Is
it any wonder then contlnuo the phy
Blclaus that women should havo bo-
come constltutlo'islly rattl-bralned
that their reasoning poer should bo
far Inferior to that of men and that
thousands of them should bo com-
mitted to madhouses every year?
These rases are calamities not Invaria-
bly referred to their proper causes and
It Is safe to say that a very large pro
portion ot them are attributable to thu
deadly hairpin. When women wcru
llrst confronted wttb the statement ot
their unconscious sinning against
themselves they asked a trltlo Imllg
nantly what could take the pla-o of a
hairpin it it were ouce abolished.
Surely It would be impossible for Rcf
respecting women ot middle ago to
parade the streets with their aunty
hair In pigtails. This hub admitted
and for a time the matter did Ixik
rather dubious. It was suggested that
nil women mloht cut oft their hair and
wear it lu short loose curls TUIh
again did not appeal to tho dlgnlllod
majority suit so tlio following com-
promise was Dually hit upon. A ord-
Ing to this scheme the hair Mas tj bo
oombed loosely back from the forehead
pompadour style. At the back It wort
to be arranged In a loose yet cleverly
