SAVK YOUR FINEST CORN.

the World's Fair.
Editor The Chronicle:
Tennessee can make one of the
finest corn exhibits that will be
seen at the St. Louis World's Fair.
We want every county in the State
represented in it).
We want 30 ears in the shuck of
each variety for the Tennessee ex
hibit. Pull the shuck back and see
that the ears are all right and then
pull the shuck over the corn again.
Ask the farmers of your county
to get it ready now. A well pad
ded box should be attached to the
hind end-gate of the wagon, and
every promising ear thrown in it.
Later these earsshould be culled
and 30 of the finest selected for
the exhibit. The name of the
grower-and his postoffice address
will appear on the exhibit. Ask
every one who will furnish the corn
for an exhibit to notify you or write
directly to B; A. Enloe,
Secretary andDirector Exhibits,
be furnished later.
