Keep In mind the Ocolieo Fair,
which will bo held at Westminster
on Wednesday and Thursday, Nov. I
and L*. The citizens of Westminster
aro working unitedly and with un
tiring zeal to make our fair not
Westminster's fair, bul Oconoos
a success from every standpoint. And
everybody should give them full as
sistance and h oar ty co-operation, lt
will take that to make a good fair.
No matter how hard our friends at
Westminster may work, without tho
co-operation of the rest of the coun
ty-especially on the part of those
who arc lu position to make exhibits
-their oiYorts will provo a failure.
Whn't could a fair be without exhib
its? And Westminster cannot pos
siblv gel up exhibits within her own
resources tint will provo creditable
to the whole of Coonee. It will take
exhibits from every section-every
nook and corner-of Oconeu to make
the fair ni Westminster Iho li rs ( of
next month what it ought to 1)0 and
what we hope it will 1)0.
Start getting lip your exhibits to
day. To-morrow may he too late, lt
is important also thal tho exhibits be
made, just as I tractive as possible
We have the pi ?zo list and the list of
exhibits for tho fair, and regret
exe.lingly thal wo are unable ?to
publish it this week, lt will lip pear
in Tho Courier next week. Hut you
need not wait on thia list tn make
an exhibit. The list comprises almost
every article raised on the farm,
handiwork, household articles of all
kinds, everything thai ls worth while
in the home, from the farm, from the
garden--stock of all kinds, fruits,
Let every section be represented
nt tile Coonee fair at Westminster in
November, lt will bo worth while.
There is nothing that gives greater
incentivo to progress, to making bet
ter crops, raising better stock, grow
ing hotter fruits-in fact, in doing
everything better-than competition
in exhibits at a county fair.
Will your section bo represented
by an exhibit at Westminster? Don't
say that you don't know. Got at lt
now, prepare an exhibit, and thereby
say that If nobody else makes an ex
hibit from my section, my section
will bo represented, If this idea is
carried out by all who can mako
creditable exhibits, Oconoo's fair at
Westminster will be SOME FAIR.

Seven hales of cotton on six acres,
without tho use of boll weevil poison,
and with only tine, hundred pounds
of fertilizer per nero, is ?he record of
Joel Townsend, successful farmer of
Cokesbttry, this year. Mr. Townsend
has already picked four bales from
a six-acre tract at Cokesbttry, and be
lieves that ho will inck three more
good bales from the same tract.
The cotton is an early variety and
was planted on May Sib. Mr. 'Town
send used 2(H) pounds of acid phos
phate and 100 pounds of nitrate of
soda, mixed, and applied when the
colton was planted.
The cotton land has been planted
in crimson clover for about four
years, and Mr. Townsend believes
this was in a measure responsible for
tito large yield of cotton.
Tho cotton stalks are loaded from
top to bottom with bolls, and a fair
top-crop bas matured. The tract ls
