seen every thing and the rain had
elackonod up, for it had been pouring
rain, wo left the grounds and went in
to the city to hoc different things,
Some went to the capital, churches
and othons to tho penitentiary and
asylum. We wont to the storos andj
then out to Columbia College which
is just being finished, after having the
fire. We got to star until six o'clock,
an hour longer than we could have

Corn Show was a great success and
ui certainly glad that I went.
THE NATIONAL CORN EXPOSITION
% Fourth Grade.
On starting to Columbia It poured
rain, but when I reached the build
ing I was much surprised to see so
many wonderful things. 1 saw some
beautiful large apples, but vory few
I saw an old stone seventy-five or
ono hundred years old. They had one
old slave 'who ground some corn in
the old fashioned way.
I saw some wheat add one thing a
lot of you would have liked to have
seen, was a tribe of the Catawba Indi
ans. There wore little twins, and the
mother made clay pipes and buckets,
and If you go to this place please
remember to see tho Catawba Indians,
I hopo they will please you very much.
I saw some cows that couldn't hook,
they had something that held their
heads in place. There were some
Improvements in farm life showing
the old and new; and also changes in
the school life.
They had some beautiful flowers.
There were several species of but
terflies and bugs.
THE NATIONAL CORN EXPOSITION
H&ttie D. Gray
We lett Laurens in a special coach
reserved for the Laurens graded
school and on reaching the exposi
tion grounds we found the whole
show under one roof. This was very
convenient as it rained hard for a
long time. There were exhibits from
nearly all of tho states. Each state
had a separate compartment, above
which were beautiful rural paintings
by Sprague, illustrating its products.
I think we should be proud of our
state as we had one of the largest
and best exhibits. An Interesting fea
ture to the girls of our party was a
figure, dressed In the height of fashion,
with hat and dress made of tobacco.
South Carolina- also had the largest
pecan I have ever seen. There was
a machine from Clemson college that
made cloth called Margute tte. The
model and immodel schools Vrtn
Winthrop were very character' :.lc.
The Catawba Indians from near F '.Nck
Hill were sent by the state and wore
the Indian dress. Thero was a United
States flag made entirely of corn
shucks. Some of the shucks were the
natural color, other red and others
blue. It was pretty and would be .a
nice experiment for the primary
grades. Part of the building was giv
en to the Tomato Girls; they canned
fruit and had their exhibit there.
Among other interesting South Caro
lina exhibits, I saw the renowned
Jerry Moore. Strange to say, he still
appears timid and modest. In the
Texas exhibit was a map made of
grain stuck on with paste, the diffet
j eiit grains were put on the sections
where they were grown. In tho Ala
I bama exhibit wore butterflies and
I moths. Among the moths was the
beautiful green Luna, which I have
longed to see since I read "The Girl
I of the Llmerlost." I saw some hemp
and flax for the first time and many
varieties of wool. The trophies for
the best single ear and the best ten
ears of corn were won by Indiana,
and the Knapp trophy was also won
by Indiana. In the government ex
hibit, near the center of the building
were pictures of trees and cattle.
There were miniature farms, hog
farms and villages. There was a
large case in which were the salt
marsh, malaria and yellow fever mos.
quitocB. About a third of the build
ing was occupied by exhibits from tho
various manufacturing companies. In
that department all kinds of machin
ery woro shown. The different ways
of Irrigating woro interesting. I saw
cows milked by electricity. Friday
night In the auditorium the prize-win
ning hoys and girls frOin each state
wero called upon for an impromptu
stunt. It Was evident that many of
the children here made their first pub
lic appearance. The Corn Show was
Instructive and interesting in every
way and was enjoyed by everyone.
