Ohio State Fair and Industrial Exposition

August 29, 30, 31, and September 1 and 2


The Ohio State Fair and Industrial Exposition of 1904 was held August 29, 30, 31 and September 1, 2. This Bulletin contains a complete list of the awards that were made in each of the several departments and classes where premiums were offered, and also a list of the exhibitors in the Machinery and Manufactural Departments where no premiums were offered or competition entered into.

The grounds and buildings were early prepared for receiving ex. hibits, and the rule was enforced requiring everything to be in place, ready for public inspection, on the morning of the opening day. Nearly all exhibits were put in position the week previous to the fair, and the program began promptly, Monday morning, August 29. ,

The exhibition throughout developed no. weak or uninteresting places. All of the exposition buildings were well filled with fine and interesting displays, illustrating the department and classes to which the building was specially devoted. The latest inventions, the newest devices, the finest fabrics, the choicest of farm, garden, orchard and greenhouse productions, the beautiful in art and home ornamentation, and substantial furnishings and fittings were properly arranged in the several buildings, and judging from the crowds who thronged the buildings and lingered long in study and admiration, the information unfolded to the visiting public was easily grasped and greatly appreciated. .

The buildings where live stock were housed and shown had many visitors and none were disappointed. The animals, herds, stables and flocks were gathered from the best in the land, and every important breed was represented. Thefarmer desiring to improve his farm stock had the evidence before him of how best to do it, and no doubt, from the influences of the live stock exhibit of the Ohio State Fair, untold good will result.

An exceedingly interesting department was that of agricultural implements and machinery. The buildings were filled with all kinds of

cultivating and harvesting implements, and on open ground, the heavier classes of machines and engines were constantly demonstrating to an interesting public, the workings and merits of each machine.

Every department of the Fair was arranged and conducted with a view to furnishing illustrations of progress that should be of a strictly educational character, and while the management provided some wholesome free amusements for the entertainment of the people, the lines were strictly drawn on everything in the nature of so-called privilege exhibitions for which admission is charged, and on fakes of every character. :

As a grand educational industrial exposition, the Ohio State Fair of 1904 was a decided success. By reason of the counter attraction at St. Louis, and rain on one of the days of the Fair, the attendance did not equal that of last year, but it was sufficient to cover all expenses of the Fair and leave a small balance for the care and maintenance of grounds and buildings until another exhibition.

With such fine grounds and such immense buildings as are required for Ohio's Fair, the cost of keeping them in prime condition is no little sum, and yet, notwithstanding the present building facilities, which were thought to be ample for years to come, the management is now facing the fact that additional buildings must be provided before another Fair is held, especially for the great manufacturing interests that have increased so rapidly in demanding exhibition space.

A large increase is required in machinery buildings and a new building for poultry is desired, and when these are provided there will not be a single department of the Fair but what will be at least comparatively equal in equipment and convenience for exhibition purposes.

The Ohio State Fair is under the direct management of the Ohio State Board of Agriculture, and each member is assigned to important duties. The several departments of the Fair of 1904 were in charge of the following members and officers of the Board, the members in charge of exhibition departments being assisted by the superintendents named.

In the administrative division of the Fair a great force of clerks and experts are required to conduct the business.
