80th and ending November 3rd.
For more than forty years?two
generations?this has been the one
event In which all the people of the
State have joined. In previous years
it has not been so much the exhibits
that have attracted the people from
every part of the State as It has been
?the community of interests, so to
speak, of the people of this State.
There has been a general desire on
the part of the people In one part o?
Carolina to meet and know more ot
the people in other sections and that
Is why they have come to the Stale
Fair. Families have scattered and
more people can be met In Columbia
during the State Fair than any one
other place in the same time and that
Is the primary cause of the growing
eiuccess of the State Fair. As the
State has prospered so has the Fair
In its exhibits. Year by year better
cattle and better stock have come into
South Carolina and it is at the State
Fair that much of this enthusiam is
Eipread by the exhibition and sale of
that which Is best In cattle, stock,
poultry and labor saving machinery.

cessful business man from St. Mat
thews, who is now President of the
Association, and Secretary J. M. Can

Special attractions will be provided
at the State Fair each night of Fair
President Banks has contracted to
have a modern aeroplane make two
lllghts each day and this ought to be
a great attraction for those who have
not yet seen this modern wonder.
The railroads being In thorough ac
uord with the Ideas and purposes of
the State Fair have announced espe
cially low rates for the round trip
from all points, and those who do not
come to Columbia for the State Fair
to catch the political pulse, or to see
