THE ANNUAL COUNTY FAIR
(Coutinued from Page Oue.)
self upon the large number and tho
quality of her cattle, it must be admit
ted that, though what was exhibited
was of a high quality, the number
was lacking in this department. This
is explained by reason of the fact that
the fair lasts but one day and those
people who are most interested in cat
tle raising happen to live some miles
from the county seat and did not feel
willing to come such a long distance
for one day's exhibit. It is expected
that next year some arrangement will
be made to have more exhibits in this
department. The swine, sheep, and
goat exhibits were very creditable as
were all of the rest of the domestic
animal exhibits. Another department
this year was the bench show. A
large number of handsome and blood
ed dogs were shown In this depart
ment and they attracted considerable
attention. Some of the dogs will t
sont to the state fair, along with other
exhibits from this county. The agri
cultural exhibit was a splendid rep
resentation of the county's resources
in this department. Every conceiva
ble product of the farm was shown
here and doubtless many were In
spired to use more progressive meth
ods In the future.

poultry department. They gave en
tire satisfaction. All of the judges
spoke In the very highest terms of the
success of the fair. Prof. English say
ing that he was simply delighted with
every feature. He commented upon
the absence of race horses, cheap
shows and rowdyism, saying that the
people of the county should feel proud
of the fair because of the absence of
Thanking All Around.
Mr. Hyrd has resuested that The Ad
vertiser express for him and for the
fair assocsiatlon their thanks to all
those who aided in making the fair a
success, Especially did he want to
thank the people of Clinton for their
co-operation in giving prizes and in
attending and also to thank Mr. Oarl
Ington for the use of his large and
commodious pasture for the exhibition
McSwains Hand, of Spnrtanburg,
furnished music for the occasion and
gave very creditable service. Plow
ing a horn all day Is no child's play,
but they stuck to it pretty faithfully.
Not a single arrest was made on the
fair grounds and only one during the
whole day in the city. The absence
of liquor was noticeable and comment
ed on. No arrangements were made
for extra policemen beforehand and j
none were needed. The crowd was
orderly and good natu red and anxious
As it takes considerable time and
work to get the premium list in shape,
it will be necessary to wait until
next week to publish it.
