which will be held in Augusta, No
vember 6 to ll, will be the biggest fea
ture at the fair to the majority of
attendants. The competition in this
department will be strong. The vari
ous elub and individual exhibits' will
oren surpass those at the fall fair
.'lera last year. The agricultural dis
play at the fair this year will be in
all larger than last year and in every
respect it ls expected to be finer. The
live stock exhibits will be unusually
good, and it ls already known that
several fine animals-above the ordi
nary-will be on exhibit There ara
always a very large number of en
tries in this line and especially good
.how is expected this fall.

one. It did not compete for the
prizes at the fall fair last year, but
rt will be "right there" thia year. An
other fine exhibit this year will be
that of the Georgia and Florida rail
way, showing the products of the
"wi re gr ass country." Their exhibit at
the last fair was splendid and was
complimented on all sides. Some of
the finest products raised In this Bee

The individual agricultural exhibits

In the coming lair realize that they
have got to put out a display a great
deal better than they had at the fair
