Attraction in January of l!M3, whan
Corn Exposition is to tie Held.
Columbia, s. C, Feb. 7.?The Fifth
National Corn Exposition will be held
in Columbia, S. C. January 27th to
February 8th, 1913. The four previ
ous expositions were held in the
Northern States and the selection of
a Southern State for the next is an
acknowledgement of the fact that the
South is no longer looked upon as
purely a cotton producing section.
For the first time in the history of
the country, all sections?East, North,
and West?will have an opportunity
to meet in the South for the holding
of a great Natioual Agricultural Ex
Those who are familiar with the past
history of this movement and what
it stands tor in its relation to agricul
tural education and development know
that it is more than a mere corn show.
The competitive exhibits of corn, oth
er grains, and grasses Is only a minor
part of the exposition. The great fea
ture will be the exhibits and demon
strations of the various State Agri
cultural Colleges and Experiment Sta
tions and the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture. These exhibits
will depict in graphic and forceful
manner the various lines of agricul
tural experimentation and investiga
tion being carried on by the United
States Department of Agriculture and
the different State agricultural insti
tutions. Each exhibit will lie in the
charge of experts, who will explain
the derails to the visiting farmers ant'
point out how the results of this work
may he applied to their own farm con
In addition to this there will be a
display of farm and dairy equipment
and machinery, more extensive than
anything ever assembled in the South
before. In the dairy division there
will bo representative animals of the
various dairy breeds, brought togeth
er under the auspices of the National
Dairy Cattle Clubs; also a modern
milk handling plant where cheese and
butter will be made.
Conservation, country life and rural
school problems will be treated in a
fundamental way both through exhib
its and by speakers of national repu
There will he competitive classes
for all kinds of grains and grasses and
cotton. As this exposition is national
in scope it is necessary to limit the
number of competitive exhibits to the
pri/.o winners in their respective stat<>
shows. In this way only the best that
i has been produced by each state will
lie exhibited to compete lor Zone. Na
tional and Internatk nnl sweepstakes
Two years will intervene between
this exposition and the one held at
Columbia. Ohio, in 1011. This length
of time will enable the management
to put on a show at Columbia that will
far surpass any exposition of this kind
The National Corn Exposition is a
grand round up of all state agricul
tural meetings and shows the best in
thought and the best in exhibits. It
summarizes, in graphic form, the agri
cultural progress of the nation.
