CULTURE OF SOIL
SRO! AT FAIR
One of the Greatest Industries in
the South May Result From
Experiments Now Being Con
ducted by Prof. Osigian
Augusta, Ga.-The culture of the
silk worm promises to be one bf the
greatest industries in this section if
the experiments now being made by
Prof. V. K. Osigian at the Georgia
Carolina Fair grounds proved to be
the splendid success that they give
promise of being. Professor Osigian
came here from Armenia last year,
and he has convinced some of the
leading business men of this city that
silk culture can be made profitable
in this section of the country. Profes
sor Osigian's silk worm exhibit at the
approaching Georgia - Carolina Fair
promises to be one of the most in
teresting at the entire fall show. He
wiil occupy one wing of the main fair
building, and you should spend a cou
ple of hours watching his wonderful
work with the silk worm and co
coons. Professor Osigian says that
in Augusta can be found the climate
and the mulberry trees and there is
no reason why the culture o' silk
should not become very profitable in
deed. . .._ . j

IN ENTIRE SOUTH
Poultry Show at Augusta Fair
Such Splendid Success That
Building Had to Be
Augusta, Ga.-Inquiries are pourinj
daily into the Augusta Poultry Asso
ciation asking for information of the
annual exhibit, which will be held in
connection with the Georgia-Carolina
Fair, November 6 to ll, 1911.
The show this year carries a num
ber of important and interesting addi
tions. They are traditions that will
appeal to the exhibitor as well as the
One of the first of these additions
is the provision for ducks and pig
eons. The latter named industry is
growing daily in the South. It is al
most possible to watch the increase
in duck raising. For that reason, as
well as for the reason that the duck
exhibit will add to the Interest of the
entire exhibit, the officers have de
cided to make" a class for them There
have been numerous inquiries con
cerning this division. A fancier in
Delaplains, N. J., has written to ask
if there will be a provision for black
and white Orpington ducks, as well as
fowls. There will be provision for
that breed, as well as numerous oth
ers. It is the object of the Augusta
Poultry Association to make the ex
hibit one that will be complete in ev
ery way; one that will mean some
thing to the exhibitors, and for many
years past there has been a hot con
test among the exhibitors to be the
winners of the trophies and ribbons;
and to make it one that is altogether
interesting to the thousands of visit
ors that throng the building during
the fair week.
There will undoubtedly be an in
teresting exhibit of pigeons, both
from local representatives and from
foreign; but that branch of the an
nual show will be nothing like as
complete or as interesting as the
fowls and ducks.
Another important addition has
been the enlargement of the floor
space by 10,000 square feet. The
growth of the association from year
to year has forced this. Last year
it was necessary to place the coops
tier on tier, and put many of the
coops out of doors. There will he no
necessity for that this year. The
coops will be single tiered, so that
the birds can receive a better show
ing, ?and the fanciers will be given a
fairer showing, although in 1910
the greatest care was used
against discrimination. To complete
the additional floor space 1,000 addi
tional coops have been ordered, there
by totaling 2,500. It is confidently ex
pected that every one of the 2,600
coops will be filled.
The association offers an unp?rallel
ed premium list. It is gotten out in
book form. The booklet is very at
tractive in appearance; it carries 160
pages .of advertisements and premi
ums. In cash prizes the association
offers from $2,000 to $1,500. There
are 135 specials. Of that 155, 55 are
handsome silver cups and' 100 hand
The advantages of showing at the
Augusta Poultry Association's show
are manifold. That there are mani
fold advantages is set forth by the
repeated exhibitions ot foreign exhib
itors, and the addition, from year to
year of many others.
In 1910 the Augusta Poultry Asso
ciation boasted entries from nearly
every state in the Union, and several
countries of Europe. This year it is
expected that the entiy list will total
2,500. Entries have been coming in
thick and fast for many days concern
ing the exhibit. Many are merely
asking for information. Numbers are
exhibitors signifying their intention to
be among the high class exhibitions
in the biggest show in the South.
Some are exhibitors who have been
to Augusta before; some are those
who have heard of the fame of the
association and wish the prestige that
comes of being an exhibitor therein.
One of the many advantages of
showing with the August* associa
tion, is the widespread circulation
which the birds have. Thousands of
people visit the fair during; the week.
That is one way. The second ls
through the premium list cf the asso
ciation, which, attractive in form and
generous In offer, reaches nearly ev
ery exhibitor in the United States and
Canada. Cheap rates on all railroads.
STATE COLLEGE OF
