National Conservation Expo
sition To Be Big Event
of the Year
SOUTH'S GLORY ON DISPLAY
Exposition Will Be One of the "Differ

All Ways Than Anything Ever Seen
In This Section of United States
The National Conservation Exposi
tion that will be held In the pictur
esque city of Knoxville from Septem
ber 1 to November 1, of the present
year, will be the one big event of tbo
year iu the South.
No meeting, no gathering, no con
ference, no exhibition of any kind will
overshadow in importance the Nation
al Conservation Exposition. It will bo
national in scope, national in charac
The National Conservation Exposi
tion baB been planned along broad
lines and is designed to teach the
great lesson of tho necessity o' con
serving the resources that nature has
so oountlfully bestowed on the coun
try. More especially will the necessity
of conserving the immense resources
of tho South lie brought out and em
phasized at the Exposition.
Following are a few facts that give
some Idea of the magnitude and the
alms of tho National Conservation Ex
The exposition plant represents aa
outlay of over $2,000,000.
The site of tho exposition Is in the
most beautiful park In tho South?a
park that nestles In the foothills of the
great Smoky mountains, picturesque,
rolling, green, highly Improved.
Eleven Big Buildings.
The exposition grounds embrace
with lakes and drives over one hun
Never was a site for an exposition
with more natural advantages chosen,
never one better adapted to exposition
Eleven large exposition buildings,
modern, stately, snowy white, as well
as a number of smaller buildings, will
house this exposition.
Railroads realize the importance of
tho exposition and are cooperating in
every way in the enterprise.
National leaders of conservation
with Clifford Plnchot as chairman are
directing the exposition.
Sixteen Southern states have formed
boards for exposition work and these
boards are actively engaged In the col
lection of comprehensive exhibits and
in arranging state days for the expo
South a Treasure House.
The National Conservation Exposi
tion at Knoxville during September
I and October will be "different." The
displays in various lines will bo the
largest, the most diversified, the most
interesting ever seen in any exposition
in the South; they will compare favor
ably with any exposition ever held In
the United States and they will all
teach graphically, eloquently and point
edly the lesson of conservation, ad
mittedly one of the greatest questions
before the American people to-day.
And about all the South?the great
South, the South that Is a treasure
bouse of the nation, the South busy
with the hum and the whirr of count
less manufacturing Industries?will bo
on display In Knoxville during the ex
position. The South with Its tremend
ous resources and great Industrial pro
gress will be strikingly typified.
There will be much for every citizen
of the country to see In Knoxville dur
ing the exposition months, there will
be much for every one to learn.
EXPOSITION TO BE READY.
National Conservation Show To Make
New Record In This Respect.
The hundreds of thousands of visit*
ors from all parts of tho country, and
particularly from tho Southern States,
to the National Conservation Exposi
tion can be assured of one fact even at
this early date: That no matter how
early they make their visit to the ex
position after the gates are formally
thrown open they will see the displays
Work Is so far advanced now that
everything will be ready on the open
ing day and the complete line of ex
hibits In all of the many big, whtto
buildings, and In all of the various de
partments of these buildings, will like
wise be ready.
Too many times In the history of ex?
positions In other partB of the country
it has happened that the first weeks
saw only a portion of the exposition
complete. This will not be the case
LOW RATE8 FOR EXPOOITIONv
Railroads Have Made Concessions For
Big Knoxville Show.
Exceptionally low rates?the -owest
ever made for an exposition In the
South?have been mado by the i ail
roads for the National Conservation
Exposition In Knoxville, Tenn., during
the months of September and October*
These reduced rates are In forco f?cin

within a radius of 300 miles oppor
tunity to make the trip to Knoxville
at comparatively little cost.

"Not that we don't like the dog,"
one woman said, "but because we

Carborundum in Furnaces. 1
Carborundum, the artificial subs ;1
tute for emery, which in said to rlv xl
the diamond in hardness, is emplo y
ed, because of its extraordinary r e
slstance to heat, as a coating for the
mterior of furnaces. Finely powdered
and made into a paste, It Is applied
with a brush, like paint, to th brick
lining. It is said that a layer u' only
two mlllmeters in thickness will pi o
tect tho bricks from the effects of the
highest temperature that Is produced
in ordinary furnace combustion.
Carborundum is itself a prod''ctnf

WORK FOR CLOUD SPOTTER
Humble but Indispensable Adjunct ln<
the Process of Taking Mov
"Among the new Jobs that modern
life has originated," said a statistician,
"that of the cloud spotter is interest
ing aud odd. The cloud spotter
doesn't, of course, make spots on
clouds. No, no. He stand on a high
roof with a costly field glass and he
continually notifies his employer, a
moving- picture maker, of the condi
tion of the heavens.
"You Bee, for an elaborate moving
picture play a steady, uniform light is
essential. The pictures must be taken
all in sunshine or all in clear gray
light. Otherwise they differ. Some
are weak and some strong. They don't
match on the screen. So the cloud
spotter on the roof, searching the
heavens with his glass, studying the
course and velocity of the wind, as
sures his boss of a good half-hour or
hour for photographing a movlng-plc
ture play, and thus saves a waBte of
films that would otherwise be many
times larger than his frugal salary."
