Tho State Fair at Columbia is a little
more than two weeks oft' now, and wo
hope that Anderson County, will bo
well represented there both MI exhibits
and visitors. Recently we received a
private letter from Col. Holloway, '?he
Secretary, in reference to the Fair, and .
we take the liberty c" publishing the j
following uaragrann from it : "At one
period Anderson County was the fore
most in sending exhibits to tho Stato
Fair. It is not so now, and why? Yonr
County claims to bethe foremost in re
sources of any other County in the
State.' My esteemed friend, Mr. B. F.
Creyton, was a host within himself in
looking after exhibits, and, with his
coadjutor, the late Gen. W. W. Hum
phreys. Anderson boro off more premi
ums than any other County in tho
State, but not so now. I hope nt. tho
approaching Fair your County will re
deem herself in this respect." Ander
son County can redeoni herself and
keep up her reputation if the proper
eflbrt is made by our people.
