Gov. James B. McCreary, of Ken
tucky, has read so much about tho
National Conservation Exposition that
is to be held in Knoxville, Tenn., dur
ing the months of September and Oc
tober, bad become so much impressed
with the magnitude of the exposition;
and Its importance to the South as a
whole that he recently called Dr. J, lt. I
Hoeing, State Ceologist, before him.
"Dr. Hoeing," the govotiior said in
offect, "this exposition at Knoxville Is
going to be a big thing, a much bigger
exposition for tin; South in every way
than most people imagine. I am anx
ious that you go down to Knoxville,
look over the ground, see what Is be
ing done, ami arrange for a state ex
hibit of Kentucky minerals at the ex
position. Kentucky can not afford to
be unrepresented, I believe."
Dr. Hoeing enme to Knoxville, mar
veled at the work being done and at
.the work already accomplished. Ho
went back to Frankfort and made his
report to Gov. McCreary.
Kentucky will have its exhibit at
The incident thus related is only
one of a number of similar character
that have occurred recently. Many
who eould not see things aright before,
have become convinced that the Na

I The United States government,
through its different departments and
bureaus, is taking a deep interest in
the success of the big undertaking,
and in no department probably more
than In the Department of Mines and
In the llrst place the managers of the
Exposition have taken into considera
tion that the mineral resources of tho
J Great New South are many and varied. I
thnt for richness of deposits there are
none just like them anywhere in the
country, n ' they have taken Into con
sideration i.>e fact that there Is much
development work still to be done
among these mineral deposits. So a
magnificent new building, white as
snow, as aro all of the other buildings
of the Exposition, Is going up. It will
be used exclusively for the display of
mines and mineral exhibits.
Here tho resources that mean so
much to tho South will bo on display;
here tho lessons of how best to con
servo these wonderfully rich re
sources will be taught; bore the 168?

of those who go down In tho mines aj;
a means of earning a livelihood tflll

will be one of the handsomest and
must striking In the group of exposi
tion structures, it is being built in the
old Colonial style.
The building was designed for the
women; It is set apart for their use.
In it will be shown hundreds and thou
sands of thiiiKS Of interest to women.
The woman's building will bo primarily
devoted to the display of various
things embraced in that comprehen
sive term- domestic science and to
the display of the arts and crafts In
Which they will find delight and in
Mrs. Horace Van Deventer, of Knox
ville, a daughter Of Justice l.urton of
the supreme court of tho United
States, Is chairman of the woman's
board of the exposition and is devoting
much of her time to the work. Mrs.
