APPRECIATIONS OP THE CORN EXPOSITION
Laurens School Children Write of Their Experiences
and Impressions at Columbia, Where They Attend
ed the Great National Corn Exposition.
MY TRIP TO COLUMBIA.
Laura Emily DiaL
We left Laurens last Friday morn
ing at 8 o'clock for Columbia. Mr.
Jones had secured a special car for
the school children.
When we reached Columbia a street
car was waiting at the depot to carry
us to the fair grounds.
The different exhibits were all In
one large steel building. The building
is one of the largest of its kind In
tp6 United states. It contains nearly
seventy thousand square feet of floor
space. About thirty-five thousand
people could be comfortably seated.
Around the sides of the main hall
were placed the state exhibits. There
were twenty-eeven state exhibits.
Above each were beautiful paintings
representing tho products of the
states. Unfortunately some of the
exhibits were lost and this made
I am very glad to say that I thought
South Carolina had the best exhibit.
I enjoyed seeing the loom which was
in the Clemson college booth make
In one booth were a number of Ca
tawba Indians from the reservation
near Rock Hill.
The lady made of tobacco interested
Varieties of corn, cotton, bay, hemp,
apples and other nice things were ex
At one place were some old gray
haired negroes grinding corn Into
meal as in olden times.
I saw the two beautiful trophies
won by Indiana, one for tho best sin
gle ear of corn and the other for the
best ten ears of corn.
I also enjoyed seeing the illustration
of irrigation and the milking of cows
Another very Interesting thing was
the picture of the Shadow of the Cross
When the room was made perfectly
dark you could tell the time of day
from the wonderful picture. Later
this picture will be placed in the
Corcoran Art Gallery, at Washington.
It was very pleasant to watch the
tomato club girls and corn club boys.
We saw the little girl who canned
over one thousand cans of tomatoes
and we met Jerry Moore
On Saturday morning we left our
room very early in order to see some
of the sights of Columbia.
Trinity church yard where Timrod,
Hamilton and other noted men are
burled was the first place visited. Next
we went to the University, where we
saw the different halls, and the South
Carolina library. In hero, In a largo
room on the upper floor you see hoys
seated around studying, and alBo
Btat'" of noted men and beautiful
pictures. On the lower floor arc lots
of books. We went Into the laboratory
and also the museum, where we were
shown the ordinance of secession. The
grounds of the university were beau
After that we took a walk and saw
tho beautiful Colonial hotel, which the
Baptists of the state are trying to
get as a hospital,
Just across the street Is the home
which was once occupied by j the
Wilson's and will be the home of the
president if he conies south in the
We now went to the State House
grounds. Here are beautiful monu
ments. One Is to Hampton and the
other to the women. On one side of
tho state house is a sear loft by Sher
man's cannon ball.
I enjoyed my visit to the senate ard
the bouse of representatives.
After paying a hurried visit to the
asylum and Columbia college we
boarded tho train for Laurens.
THE NATIONAL CORN SHOW.
Last Friday, Mr. Jones took a crowd
of us school children down to Co
lumbia to see tho great National
Corn Show. This Is the fifth exhibit
tluy have had, and we feel very proud
that It should be bold in our state.
Mr. Jones had secured a special coach
for the school children and had it
decorated for us. Wo all had a jolly
time going down, for every one was
Upon arriving in Columbia we found
that two speclifl street cars had been
procured to conduct us out to the ex
hibition grounds. We arrived at tho
grounds something after twelve.
Tho building is a largo Iron struc
ture, larger than any ?tore wo havo
In town. All around tho sides were
the exhibition of tho twenty-seven
states represented. Each state had
a partitloned-off place to itself.
Around these places were paintings
of what was grown In that state and
overhead they bad one large painting
with the name of the state. All the
exhibits were interesting, but the one
that Interested us more was South
Carolina. Among the others In her
exhibit was a woman dressed in to
bacco leaves. The trimmings were
even made of tobacco leaves. To the
right of South Carolina's exhibit was
an annex auditorium. In this was
the Girls Canning Club with a picture
of the girl that raised the most toma
toes. Also in this building was illus
trated the unimproved rural school
and the Improved rural school. The
unimproved one had desks that were
all cut up, and walls that were all
marked and a very dirty floor. On the
other hand In the improved school
everything was up-to-date and neat as
a pin. The most wonderful thing in
this auditorium was a picture, The
Shadow of the Cross, which Is a pic
ture of Christ and when the light is
turned off the picture sends forth a
light of Its own and behind Christ Is
the shadow of a cross. Scientists
have never been able to explain this
wonderful thing. Upon entering the
main hall again I saw the Catawba In
dians from the Rock Hill reservation,
which Interested me very much. In go
ing through Indiana's exhibition I saw
the champion ear of corn which won
the trophy cup given by Kellogg. A
little beyond the Indian exhibit was
another branch of the building which
contained all kinds of farm imple
ments and also some very fine cows.
In the main hall, just beyond this j
branch, Winthrop had an exhibit, j
where two girls were cooking. In the
center of the building were exhibits
from the different states. After see
ing all we thought there was to be
seen we left the grounds and came
Into town to look at Columbia. Some
went to the state house, the asylum
and the penitentiary. We went to the
ten cent store and to see Columbia
college which is being completed af
ter the fire not very long ago. We
left Columbia about six o'clock and
after a jolly ride reached home about
THE NATIONAL COHN SHOW.
The girls and boys who went to the
National Corn Show at Columbia last
Friday were all delighted with It.
We left Laurens about nine o'clock
and arrived in Columbia at twelve.
The train was crowded, but we had
a nice car to ourselves.
There were seven coaches with
about three hundred and fifty passen
gers. The first street car was so
crowded In Columbia that we had to
wait for another one to go to the
grounds, for they are a few miles out
of town. The building is a large steel
structure, a Httle larger than our
school house.- It was a square build
ing with two wings, one extending
eastward and the other northward.
The eastern end was the machin
ery and experiment end where they
had different (machines for dividing
milk and .cream and other things.
The northern end had the famous pic
ture, "The Shadow of the Cross" ex
hibited and the Girls Canning and To
mato Club, the Roys Corn Club ex
hibits, the modern rural school and tho
The model school had nice desks
bright walls, a good many windows
that were clean, and It looked very
neat. The unmodeled one had long
benches, four desks, and broken out
window panes, walls all scratched up,
and desks all ruined by cutting.
The walls were covered with cob
webs and It was a very untidy school.
In the square room of tho building
which is the largest, the exhibits
from the twenty-seven states were
shown. Wisconsin and Illinois both
lost their exhibits In transit.
I liked South Carolina's exhibit best
of all of course, for any one who lives
In this state always likes every thing
that, belongs to It.
The thing In South Carolina's ex
hibit that I liked best was the woman
who was made of tobacco. I did not
know It was tobacco until some one
told me but it certainly was natural.
Some of the states had Improved
farms, the Improved ones certainly
did look lots nicer than the old ones.
A good attraction was the Catawba
Indians, the people talked to them
and I think took more Interest in them
than anything else.
They had tr.'ir pottery and blank
ets which wore real pretty. The Win
thiop Girls' had a nice cooking nnd
sewing department which shows how
nice they are trained at Winthrop
College. The beautiful hand painting
around the square building interested
mo moro than all the flno corn, ap.
pies and cotton.
It represented scenes taken from

Gave Up Hope
"1 suffered five years, with awful pains, due to woman
ly troubles," writes Mrs. M. D. McPherson, from Chad
bourn, N. C "They grew worse, till I would often faint
I could not walk at all, and I had an awful hurting in my
side; also a headache and a backache.
I gave up and thought I would die, but my husband
urged me to try Cardui, so, I began, and the first bottle
helped me. By the time the third bottle was used, I could
do all my work. All the people around here said I would
die, but Cardui relieved me."
For more than 50 years, Cardui has been relieving
woman's sufferings, and making weak women strong and
welL During this time, thousands of women have written,
like Mrs. McPherson, to tell of the really surprising results
they obtained by the use of this purely vegetable, tonic
remedy for women.
Cardui strengthens, builds, restores, and relieves or pre
vents unnecessary pain and suffering from womanly troubles.
