THE FAIR ENDED.
Thursday Was Biggest Day in the
The greater state fair has closed
and nothing remains of it but mem
ory. The society fully intended to
keep the grounds open Saturday but
yesterday was nothing but disappoint
ment, the circus being in town, in
so far as the crowd was concerned.
so the authorities reluctantly decided
t- wind up everything. About $2.ooo
was taken in at the gates: the amount
taken in the dav before was not made
public, but it must have been many
times as great.
On the whole the greater state fair
has been altogether a success, despite
the bad weather Tuesday and Wed
nesday. All the weak spots have
come out and the society is fully
aware.of the things that need remedy
ing and intends to have every one of
them remedied by another year.
The society was exceedingly anx
ious to pull off one more day, but ow
ing to the slim crowd yesterday and
the great expense attaching to keep
ing the grounds open, as well as thie
further fact that the exhibitors had
to leave today or be kept over Sun
day, they were forced to give it up.
These things led to the premature
closing of the fair. But when all is
said and done it remains true that the
greatest fair ever held by the South
Carolina Agricultural and Mechani
cal society has passed into history
and that ir has assured beyond ques
tion the future success and growth of
this noble institution, aiding.it in its
work or developing the agricultural
and mechanical possbilities of South
Carolina. Never was there a time
in the history of the state when such
was more needed: never was time
more opportune for aggressive work
along new lines; the hour has arrived
for industrial expansion to an extent
not thought possible a decade ago.
The hour has arrived and with the
hour the men and institution who are
to do it. Nothing more hopeful has
happened than the success of the
greater state fair, seen in its full
blown glory on Thursday with a
crowd that swept Columbia's breath
away. Everybody now agrees that
all that is necessary to make the fair
ten times as large is persistent work
along approved lines.
It is hardly to the - dit of the
state that only one county had a com
plete agricultural exhibit. and that
the most remote county, within her
borders. True, many other counties
had exhibits of live stock and cattle,
some of -them making magnificent
displays, but this does not excuse
their failure to have a full agricultural
exhibit, and from all one heard on the
grounds this will not occur again.
County after county is stirred, and
their representatives at the fair say
~th at next year they are coming in
with a full hand and it is to be hoped

Dear Sir: Mr. H. H. Stephenson,
cashier of Oil City, Pa., savings bank
writes: "Nine years ago I painted my
house with your paint. It wore so
wvell, I want to use it again."
That's nothing wonderful except
Ifor the fact that the soft coal region
of Pennsylvania is pretty hard on
paint with its oil, smoke and grime.
All we see in it is that Devoe is good
for nine years sometimes. There
arc thousands of people that know
it. and millions that don't.
That's the rub! 'We advertise for
the millions; we want to make paint
for the millions.
Mr. Cashier, dbo you.know that De

as lead-and-oil, or mixed paints? Is

and a few days before his departure
he remembered an old historic ruin
o1n his estate near Beifast that stood
in too exposed a place.
"Sumoning his steward, he took
him to the field on which the ruin
stood. and around this field he drew
a tinv furrow with his stick.
'Her.. -teward.' he said. 'I want
you to bigid a wall here, following
the lines tliat I have made-a stone
wall five feet high.'
"On his return, a year or two
later, he thought of his old ruin and
set out to visit it. When he reach

was the new stone wall; but the ruin
