Menace of Feeble Minded.
Interesting exhibits of charts and
explanations of the character of the
work prosctuted by the State Board
of Charities were among the features
of the fair and to do the subject
justice would fill, many pages of a
newspaper. Suffice it to say that,, by
careful study of different feeble mind
ed subjects the importance' has been
emphasized of providing a suitable
place of confinement and refuge for
the feeble minded girls and. boys;
especially the females since there is
now no place provided for them ex
cept the jail. It is hoped that they
may be given employment which will
be congenial to their unbalanced
minds and kept off the streets. - At
present there are three cantonments
located at Spartanburg, Greenville
Farm Demonstration Work.
In all probability there was no
more important department at the
fair and one which portends so- much
for the success of the planters in this
section than the instruction to be
had -by delving into the details of the
exhibits of the Farm Demonstration
Work in charge of P. H. Senn, farm
demonstration agent. Included in the
exhibits of this department were the
products of the Boys'-Corn Club, sev
eral especially good ears of corn be
ing on exhibition. Among the fea
tures of the display were an ear-to
row test showing how to conduct it
on the farm; improved methods of
breeding up and improving corn;
ears of corn showing damage (lone
by pulling fodder; also charts and
placards and different types of ears
of corn on stalk showing how to com
bat the black corn weavel; rat proof
crib was exhibited built so that it
could be used for fumigation for con
trol of insects and pests. of corn; dif
ferent fruit trees exhibited to show
the methods of pruning the different
aged trees and the sizes and ages
recommended for setting in the orch
ard; also grape vines of different ages
showing what system of pruning to
use; these vines were on regular size
and properly constructed trellisses;
how they should be tied to the trel
lisses; also a chart showing how we
can have vegetables from our garden
every day in the year. This' chart
showed when to plant the different
vegetables and when they would be
ready to use in the kitchen.
Compliment for Exhibits.
J. - D. Pullian, of Washington, lec
turer for the United States Food Ad
ministration was a visitor and made
remarks relative to the work of the
government in conserving the food
supply. His work is visiting fairs
and giving information. He stated
hat the exhibits at the Clarendon
County Fair were the best he had
seen at the fairs so far visited this
season, which is some compliment to
the planters and producers in this
section of the State.
Women Fed the Multitudes.
Best of service and a bountiful sup
ply of good things to eat were pro
vided the hungry folks at the fair,
which is usually conducive to a good
appetite. Miss Gertrude Sistrunk
was in charge of the tables served
by Miss Sue Sprott's Sunday School
class the revenues from which were
$107.00; also the Civic League tables
the receipts from wvhich were $103.00.
Wilson Mills ladies of the M. E.
church realized $150.00 and the libra
ry folks who served lunch, corralled
As the youths from this and suir
rounding towns began to pour into
the fair grounds, on Friday which
was set apart as Educational or Chil
dIren's Day, the aggregate attendance
of the big show began to swell to
large proportions, until, with the
large attendance of adults who began
arriving in the city at an early hour
it was conservately estimated that the
attendance for the clay wvould be ap
proximately 5,000 persons. The re
ceipts for this (lay werp $18,000. The
total attendance for the four (lays
will aggregate about 10,000 persons.
From opening to closing the gates
hilarity alnd innocent abandon pre
vailed and the crowds let loose for

Premiums Paid on the Grounds.
An innovation in the conduct of the
fair by the business methods employ
ed1 by the management this year and
which was one of the satisfactory
features with the exhibitors, was the
fact that all premiums were paid on
the grounds thus eliminating all dea
lays and inconveniences so often ex
periencedl by exhibitors who are fre
qjuently subjected to. delays in the
payment of their premiums.
Lessons From the Fair.
Without, having inculcated some
new thoughts in improved methods
of farming, stock raising and donies
tic science an agricultural meeting or
fair, as it is termed, may bo said to
have fallen short of fulMlnn It. real
inseion or the p refor whici all
such' ntertainments should: attain.
In other, words, there ix.ngt be some
new features which Iteaol) the planter
better and. more profitable employ
ment of his time' on' the plantation.
It would seem that the Third Annual
Fair of Clarendon County is not with
out its valuable lessons for. the plant
er, the most important of which nat
urally appears to be the subject of
diversified farming niore intensive
ly employed on the plantations in
this section of the State. The ex
hibits of corn emphatically accentu
ate the fact that South Carolinai, in-,
stead of being a second rater in the
production of this cereal should break
the record of Iowa, the banner state
for corn production. In the other ce
reals the exhibits proe conclusively
that this section is not speeding up
to its limit,
* Cattle and hogs come under the
same category as corn with respect
to the suitability of this climate and
other conditions which are ideal for
raising livestock and which should
command the immediate attention of
every farmer in this community. In
stead of permitting Iowa, Illinois and
other northern states, where the cli
matic conditions are a handicap to
cattle and hog raising, taking the
lead in this respect. The planters
here owe it to themselves and their
pocketbooks to speed up in this profit
able line of their occupation.
Poultry can become one .of the
leading industries in this section if
the success in that line demonstrated
by the exhibits of fowls is to be taken
as i criterion. It may be that the
lessons to be learned from the re
cent exhibits have not fallen on
sterile ground and that they will act
as a stimulus for better and more
intensive and diversified farming and
Maxwell Truck and Touring Car
Of the exhibits which attracted
special attention the display made by
the Maxwell people held the boards
and the beautiful specimens, of the
one-ton truck, which sells for $850,
f. o. b., in Detroit, and the. touring
car, were the point of vantage for
a large portion of the people taking
in the big show. The touring car is
electrically operated, and is provided
with cut chasis and is a fac-simile of
those exhibiteed at the New York amid
other large city. exhibitions. The
one-ton truck is also electrically ope
rated and develops three horse power.
The springs are much longer than
usually employed on this style pf car
and which causes them to ride easier.
Thee Sumter Motor Car Company
handles the Maxwell being the agents
for this section. The one-ton truck
is equipped with the Timpkin Brown
worm drive and is put out in five
different styles of bodies. When in
motion the engine on display appear
ed to be one of the smoothest running
mechanical devices on the market and
elicited many favorable remarks.
E. A. Cooper runs out from De
troit and is in charge of demonstrat
ing the touring car while C. M.
Justice is on the road as a demon
strator of the one-ton truck. They
had charge of the demonstration work
of the Maxwvell car and truck at
Brains and Business Methods.
Under the skillful management and
good business methods employed by
those in charge of the fair and their
untiring efforts to give the peCople
the worth of their money may be at
tributed the success of the recent
fair which, in many ways, was se
riously handicapped by obstacles
which 'requiredi herculean efforts to
overcome and subdue. It is no small
matter to handle all the dletails of
a big fair andl provide entertainment
for all classes of patrons from the
exhiljits to pleasure attractions, but
in utiliz.ing the gray matter the man
agers may be complimentedl in hitting
the grade. The large crowd~s were
ordlerly and wvhile on pleasure bent,
all apparently being out for real fun
and innocent pleasure, there was not
an accidlent or other condition to ab
breviate the pleasures of the patrons
of the big show. To President W.
P. T. Sprott, Secretary .John D. Ger
ald, C. A. McFaddin andl Farm Dem
onstrator P. 11. Senn is dlue much
credlit and the app~reciation of the
community for the successful issue
