: llodern. education often covers the
fingers with ringa and at the- same
time cuts the sinews at the wrists.
The fair is on. Those wh6 attend
to-day will be highly entertained, but
it ii generally conceded that Thursday
and Friday will be the best days.
Begin now if yeti would have a full
1 flour ..barrel next summer. Prepare
your land thoroughly, fertilize it well
and the yi?id will not b? uncertain.
A feature of the fair that alone is
woath all the undertaking costs, is the
social feature. The coming together of
friends and rel?tives on such occasions
broadens their sympathies and in
creases the good fellowship and good
will that should prevail -in every com
munity, in every county.
Some persons look upon Wellman as
a fool or crank, but we. are disposed to
be more charitable. Things that we
now regard as common place called
forth great heroism on the part of
some individual or individuals in the
past. Wellman is a great scientist
si who is willing to hazard his reputation
and his:fife for the development of
aerial navigation.
Hurrah for Collier.
The Advertiser commends the citi
zens of Collier most heartily for thc
good work they are doing for the cause
of education in their community. Then
new school building would do credit tc
any rural community in South Carolina.
The fact that they went down in their
pockets .to erect such a building is con
clusive proof that the good people o?
Collier are in dead earnest in the mat
ter of educating their children and
young people. All honor to Collier!
[Attend the Fairs.
The holding of so many fairs through
rat the state augurs well for the agri
cultural future.of South Carolina. In
all fairs, whether large or small, thc
agricultural features predominate,
which ?tend to stimulate farmers to
higher and greater achievements. At
.'?fcnd the county fair, then if you can
. spare the time, attend the state fair
Sand Georgia-Carolina fair. The wide
awake, observing farmer will receive
benefit from all of them. '
Sow Largely- of Wheat.

says: "This year's Southern wheat
crop saves the day for that crop in the
United States. " Every sovfthern state
shows a decided increase in the yreld of
.wheat over last year. South Caroline,
h arrested about a million bushels more
than during the preceding year.
Thc good work has just begun. Let's
keep it up by sowing a'large acreage
in this county this fall. It is estimated
th at five times more wheat was grown
in thu county during the past year
than in the year before. Let's make it
ien times as much for the year that is
before us.
The flour tax that the west annually
levies on the south is enormous. In
fact; it is proving sq burdensome;, with
the advanced prices, that ffce farmers
of the south is rebelling. Some taxes
can not be avoided-but this barden,

. Very Helpful Contests".
The Clark's Hill .Agricultural
Club conducted several contests this
year, which- created considerable
rivalry between the members. The
- first was a prize of ?10 to the mem
ber who raised tbemost when!, .vd
the second was a like sum to the
one who grew the greatest number
of bushels of corn on hill-side laud,
both" of these being won by Mr. S.
-T.Adams. Mr. H. E. Bunch wo?
the $10 for producing the largest
number of bushels of corn on but
ton? land. These contests proved to
be a great stimulus to the Clark's
Hill farmers. Other ecommuhities
should do likewise.
Two Competitive Driils.
Tj? S. C. C. L cadets will give
twocompetitive drills in tho manu
als of arms during thc fair. The
first drill will take place in the arena
from two to three o'clock Thurs lay
and the second contest" will bc held
from one to two o'clock Friday.
Cash prizes will be awarded both
days to the best drilled cadet. These
contests are always very exciting
and will prove to be sn attractive

3i? Air Ship to Fly at Georgia j
Carolina Fair.
The Curtiss aeroplane which is to
bei s'. c:n at the approaching Georgia
??rol?na Fair is bound to prove one
of tlie greatest attractions ever at a
southern fall show. Secretary F. E.
Be?n?, of the Georgia-Carolina
fair association, recently closed a
contract with Mr. H. W. Sutton,
representing Mr. Glenn Curtiss, and
aeroplane flights will be made each
day'during the fair which begins
here~on November 7th and extends
throngli the i3th. This announce
ment will probably draw thousands
lo the Augusta fair who otherwise j
would not have come, for the aero
plano is the greatest craze that is
affecting the entire world to-day.
For several years the Augusta fair
had dirigible balloons and other
forms of aircraft but these havel
long since ceased to be novelties
and the only thing that can thrill,
electrify, terrify and dazzle the peo
ple in tlie way of flying is the aero
plane. Several days ago Ex presi
dent Roosevelt made a flight in an
aeroplano in St. Louis and he de-1
jlare*] that it was the greatest ex
perience of his life, eclipsing even
the excitement and terrors of hunt
tug tlie beasts of the jungle in dark
est Africa. .
Augusta is indeed to be congrat-|
ulat'.'d upon securing an aeroplane
for the fair and it was only secured
?fier a considerable amount of
money had been spent, in fact the
aeroplane together with thc many
other splendid attractions al thc
coining fair is bound to cause the
fair to be the greatest in the histo
ry of " this section of the south.
