no doubt but what great good result?
to all the exhibitors at every Fair, tho
premiums being only a small part of
the benefits. A great many farmers
nnd stock breeders count only what
prizes are won, but this should not be
the case, because the grentest benefits
are obtained lu advertising what you
have for sale und In meeting with tho
progressive mon from other section--'!
of the State and obtaining their Ideas
and seeing the results of their
methods. The management of the Fair
ls makin? every effort to secure new

made by which freight charges are
paid on all exhibits from this State,
free stalls aro provided for stock, and
free bedrooms are furnished all ex
hibitors who are willing to stay on the

taurants on the grounds furnish meals
at all hours of the day or night at
reasonable price?, and feed for stock

regular market prices, and besides,
there are officers who look after al!

satisfactorily located. All exhibits
may bo shipped directly to tho

provision for all tho car?. Solid cars
should be billed "Secretary Siai.
Fair, Columbia, S. C., care Fair
Ground Tracks." and they will be
rushed right through to destination.
Some exhibitors may think they can
not make their entries properly, but
Secretary Love will take pleasure In
giving all necessary aid. provided ap
plication ls made to him prior to 10
o'clock Tuesday morning, as tho Fair
opens at that hour and no entries can
be made later. All exhibitors of live
stock should arrive on the grounds not
later than Friday or Saturday before
the Fair, so as to get the stock ?inlet
after shipping and get them to eating
well before being put Into the show
ring.
The premium list is very liberal this
year, and lt ls to be hoped that the
management will meet with success
In inducing a very large number of
new exhibitors to attend the Fair,
so that the Fair will become repre
sentative of every sei t I on of the State
and of all the resources of Carolina.
Information and premium lists will be
cheerfully supplied upon application
In person or by letter to Secretary
Love at Columbia. Lot all who arc
thinking of exhibiting, or who have

Estimates of the da tn age done to

(ive hundred thousand to a million

all their practical experience havo
been unable to cheek the spread of
the pest, and it is now proposed as a
heroic remedy that the cotton fields
should he burned. That is not likely '
to he done on any extensive scale.
As it appears sure to cover
all the cotton belt in a few
years the people of the older States
should begin to prepare for its com
ing. If the insect eating birds of
Texas had not been so generally
killed the progress of the weevil
would not have buen so rapid, and
the legion ought not to bo lost on tho
