F, very thing Free,
It must bo known to appreciate the
'air that everything In connection
vit h lt was tree. No gate receipts nor
.ntry fees were charged, and the
premiums amounting lp more than
*.i>00 were contributed by the people
>f Belton and vicinity. The only BOU ree
if revenue waa the advertisement:!
a.ried in the premium booklet, which
amounted to enough to pay for tho
printing of the premium li?t. N'o sal
irtos were paid to any of the superin
tendents, or officers, who gave so lib
erally of their time to making the fair
Among th? free attractions not men
tioned i,n the premium list nor In the
?rogram^ of the fair, was a fireworks
display at the fuir grounds nt 7:80 last
night, furnished by the Piedmont &
.Vorthern railway people. This was
quite a liberal display, and was wit
nessed by thousands who stayed over
>o sec it. This display wan in charge
of Trainmaster Crosby of the P. & X.

Three Farm Displays.
An Interesting fact in connection
with the turin displays, which were
among thc most interesting exhibits,
. was that the same three farmers who
had displays this year were thc same
three who exhibited last year. Lust
.year J. G. Harris won first prize fer
I the best farm display; J. C. Pinson,
I second; W. A. McGee, Caird. This year
?J. C. i'lnson won the Hirst prize, J.
G. Harris, second and W. A. McGee
third. All these exhibits were splen
did. Mr. Harris had uvur sixty separ
ate articles grown on his farm and ar
ranged artistically ia his exhibit. The
others had about the same number.
A ve?y large gourd bearing this le
gend waa on exhibit: "This, gourd
grown In the gadren of Rally Bannis
ter in your 18S4. It holds 14^ gallons
of water." ,
Mr. P. M. Cox had a display of veg
etaWes that does not cause one to
think of six cent cotton or hard times.
Every variety almost that cun bo lound
in a Sounthcrn garden was shown
there. ? ? -
Speaking of prolific corn, the exhibit
of W. M. Mghaffoy was good. On
12 ?laius he had 116 ours, on 12 stalks
24 ears, and on 16 stalks from 3 to
5 ears each.. These .were not nubbins
j either, but fut} grown eara.
I OUL'S month "waters" when thin
Ins of the pretty syrup display on ex
?lilblL W. G. Slur..-, .who hnd several
bottles there.,stated that he found
syrup ono >t tho op3t sellrs and most
: profitable products of his farm. This
? year he made about 200 gallons on
lan acre, ami linds ready sale for it
at 50 cents a gallon in barrel lots.
An exhibit' that attracted Alt. nt ion
was (hat of s. i. McLean. It consisted
of nothing but cabbages. With thc aid
of two wagon wheel.; and an old axle,
t!ie heads were arranged to resemble
a mammoth cabbage head. Large firm
?heads of the Succession and Surehcad
vaiietles>compo8cd the exhibit.
I John Smith of the Lebanon section,
land spoken of as a candidate for
I congress two years hense, hud a dis
! play of twelve varieties of tipples,
which wore very good. Mr. Smith said
ho*sprayed them and they were beau
ties, being large, red and smooth with
out n spot or H.poek.
Mr. J. G. Harris had on display 75
stalks o? teoslnto growns from one
