Yesterday was the third and last day of the county fair and the weather, which was the most aus­ picious since the fair !t>egan, served to draw a large crowd o f people to­ gether. It was a grand success, and the officers who have ¡labo-red assid­ uously to have everything pass off smoothly, were well rewarded for the pains they have taken. At 9 o'clock in the morning teams began to arrive in town from neighboring villages and the dust was kept thor­ oughly stirred up until 2 o 'clock in the afternoon. Arriving at the fair ground all was bustle an-d excite­ ment, and everybody ea^er to take everything in that was to be seen. It is estimated that nine thousand people were on the ground, the village of Batavia making up a fair sized portion of those assembled. First on the list of the many dif­ ferent articles on exhibition which were not noticed in yesterday’s N ews came the outside show of plows, a space 20 by 30 feet was occupied by the Wiard Plow (¿0., of this village, who had twenty-five different varieties of chilled plows and the attendant waskepi constant­ ly busy in answering qu-esiions in regard to their celebiated work. This firm received the first premium and highest award, as they do near­ ly everywhere they go* P. P. Brad- ish and the Syracuse Chilled Plow Company were also present with a fine collection of their’nosrti. Agents of various kinds uf mowers, reapers, drills and other farminsr implements had their share of talki ng to dn par­ ticularly with the f& rixters, all of whom thought their 0 wn best. On the north side of the tu c k A. J. Waldo and J. . Swed of this vil­ lage, and R. McCord o f Rochester, had on exhibition'as fine a display of buggies and phaetons as we have seen in a great whilfr; they were greatly admired and elicited no lit­ tle praise from those who saw them. Leaving this part of the ground the writer's attention was next drawn to the sheep and cattle pens, located at the southeast part. Here a number of farmers and farmer’s sons were found viewing the stock. In the display of fine wool sheep Messrs. S. B. Lusk, B. F. Peck, Warren J. Tyler, Hon. Eli Taylor andHenry Hoffman were the most prominent, and Mlrs. N. K. Cone, B. F. Peck, F. B;. Redfield and L. E . Heston took the lead in their exhibition of Arsfayre, Dur­ ham and Alberdy cattle, The Pol­ led Angus or Aberdeen sEock shown by Mr. Redfield wer& the object ot admiration. The display of young cattle and swine was also very cred­ itable. The east end addition of Floral Hall was crowded all day long, where could be seen a line show. The first bit of space on the north side Messrs, Kenyon Bros, made a display of 99 cent and other goods, which took the eye of all present Near by, W. H. Wilson and C. W. Tali- man displayed their ¡collection of photographs. Mr. Wilsun carried off the first premium, H e is a first class artist, and can compete with either Rochester or buffalo on first class work. Among the exhibitors on the south side of this hall were F. P. Terry, piano and organs, G. W. Bartlett, Singer sewing machines, C. O* Stetson and Albert Benchley, picture frames, Vo'z Sros., stoves and tinware, and E. D. Fisher & C o , of East Pembroke, canned goods. The balance of the room in the hall was taken uj> in the display of fruits, vegetables, ¡tnd dairy pro­ ducts raised by farmers in Genesee county. Among the collection, which was very large, wa;s noticed a squash raised in the town of Elba, and weighing 133 lbs. This attract­ ed considerable attention, as also did the large squashes exhibited by 1. 2 . n ó - 5- 4 - i . 2 . 3 ’ 4 5 - Mr: Henry Todd, in rear ot this addition to Floral Hall was; arootherib uilriing for lancy fowls and pigeons There was quite an array o l differ ent breeds, and a number o f exhibitors.
