Races at the County Fair - On Saturday, in the foot race, Bud SMITH got first money and George FOSTER (colored) second. In the afternoon race, Jas. WOODARD won first and Foster again was second . In the horse races Friday, KEARNEY's horse, John Gantt, won first money, against STREIGHT'S Broncho Jim; owing to the track being so wet, Streight's horse could not make time. Saturday there were a number of running races, mostly won by Rickebaugh, an Iowa professional, and one trot between Jones' Black Bess and Pettit's stallion, Jones won. No time on any of the horses.
