BRING THK CORN SHOW.
A determined movement has been
on foot to bring the National Corn
Show to Columbia next year. It is nss
essary to s'ato that the National Corn
Show Is the biegest th.nz of its kind
held In tho Cnlted States. It will be
held this year at Columbus. Ohio,
from the 1st to the 1-th of February.
Last year there were L*2.000 exhibits
and X50,000 given in prizes. Over a
hundred thousand people attended Its
a mammoth affair from every stand
point. It is devoted to the exposition
of the methods of growing this most
important of all cereals and cl the us
es to Which it Is put. In such expo
sitions lie the secreto of the success
that ha.s been attained by the Ameri
can farmer and from which are ga
thered those valuable ideas that are
bringing the farmer to the envied po
sition that he now occupies.
The movement to bring the Cora
show to Columbia grew out of the
successful South Carolina Corn Show,
which was held in Columbia in De
cember. While the benefit derived
from thi-> show, both from the les
rona taught to the farmers and
through the advertising value, can no*
he overestimated, this great Nation
al Corn Shosv would entirely over
shadow It In the results that would
accrue, 'u the Ais' ;>lare H will bring
the people of the Middle West and
the South into closer contact, that
they might interchange ideas. The
Vesternc.-s can teach the Southern
ers something and the Southerners
can teach the Westerners equally as I
much. This has been proved by Miej
great strides made In corn culture
in So-ith C-rolina In tho pftp? ,'ow
years. Resides the educational ad van-1
la'Rt.s, there \- ?.i'c advertising force
of such on exposition. South Caro
lina has been widely advertised,
tlir-.ugh tin papers and magazines
for the past year on account of its
phertomlnal coin yields and now If
these Westerners, many of whom are
now ready to seek new homes, could
he given the opportunity to see with
:lheir own eyes the vast possibilities*)!
the South Carolina soil and Climate,
inestimable benefit would be derived.
The wide publicity given the Corn
Show will at the same time give much
advertising to the South. It Is unnec
essary to recount other great advant
ages of the Exposition corning to
South Carolina and the So ith Atlantic
None can deny the wisdom of gett
ing It to Columbia If we can get it.
Of course It will be a big thing for
*V?lum,bIa, but In forwarding at this
time the claims of Columbia we are
fat-warding the claims of the whole
South-east. We must have the Corn
Show. Rut the question Is how to
The most convincing argument to
be put before the Corn Show official
will be the presence of a large dele
gation of South Carolinians to put
forth the claims and advantages ot
the supposed place or meeting. It
must be conclusively shown that the
South wants tho Exposition, that we
are a corn-growing people and that
Columbia is capable o? giving a suit
able building and other uccomodations. j
Definite steps weer taken to have
a delegation sent at a meeting of the
ficeretar'rii of the different commercial
organizations of South Carolina, held
at Columbia Monday. Sec. W. R. Mc
Cuen of the Laurens Chamber of Com
merce, attende and returned with a
glowing account of tho meeting, of the
addresses which hp beard and the
plans for the delegation to the Corn
8how. Mr. McCuen stated that a plan
was put on foot to Bend a delegation
of thirty men of South Carllna to the
Corn Show. This delegation will go
in a special car decorated with pal
metto leaxes and other South Caro
lina emblems. A. D. Hudson, of New
berry, will head the delegation and
formally Invite the Corn Show to meet
in Columbia next year.
Here is the point. Laurens county
should have one man, or more, in this
delegation. It was proposed at that
meeting Monday, that a volunteer be
called on from each county to go
along and mixing pleasure with pro
fit, pull for the interests of his State.
He lt> to pay his owu expenses, esti
mated to be around $00. He is to be
the official representative of his coun
ty and to see that the claims of his
county are put forward at the Corn
Show. This volunteer is wanted from
some section of Laurens county.
Doubtless several would want to go
and these are wanted as the official
representatives. >'ow, the name of
this volunteer is wanied by the Cham
ber of Commerce of Laurens. Any
one who will vluutcer to go and rep
resent this county is requested to
send in his name to Cec. McCuen at
once that the proper appointment may
lie made. If the name Is sent to this
office, we will see to it thut It goes
to the proper place.
This Is a very ini|>ortant matter and
tt Is hoped that some progressive man
of Laurens county will put in his name
to go. Send it In now. Its going to
be u fine trip.
