WEDNESBAY, NOV. 15, 1922.
At tho recent. County Fair at West
minster lhere was an exhibit that
could not fail to impress tho visitors
with the wonderful possibilities of
our section-the very cream of thc
Piedmont. There wore exhibits there
thal rivaled anything we have seen
nt tho Slate Fair when one lays
?side tho consideration of extent
and considers tho prescribed terri
tory-one county-as compared to
tho assembling of exhibits from over
the entire State. Whoa we take into
consideration this latter phase of
tho situation. Oconee held a fair at
"Westminster that far outclassed the
State Fair. And why not? Do not
the very best things grow and are
?Ot tho very best things made, and
do not the very best people live in
our own section? Certainly there ls
no better section-no bettor people.
Wo have never thought enough of
ourselves and our county to make
tho effort io force comparison with
our neighbors. The fair at Westmin
ster was a revelation, and we must
keep tho ball rolling now that lt has
Reen star;ed in motion. Oconee must
have tho best county fair in South
Carolina. She can and she will.
Tile exhibit of the Marett Seed
Farm was a wonder-not extensive,
just unostentatiously convincing of
what can bo done by means of seed
selection, weeding out tho inferior
and building up-"breeding" if you
please only from thc purest and
best in agricultural products. There
were bags of oats, rye, wheat, corn,
colton seed, corn on tho ears and on
tho stalks that showed one what
pure seed and Intensivo and care
ful, thoughtful farming can be made
to produce. This seed farm ls of but
ci few years In age. but it is many
years in advance of anything in tho
way of agricultural achievement in
this part of the Stato, barring the
experiment station at Clemson. We
wish that every farmer in Oconee
cou 1.1 have seen this exhibit, wit
nessed tho almost marvelous results
of seed selection, plant breeding, and
liavo heard Jamel, L. Carberry talk
cn those important subjects, lt would
have been worth any man's time and
Another exhibit that impressed us
very much was that of Charles L.
Parker, who manufactures tho West
minster mattresses. Mr. Parker is
t?o? originator of a feature in mat
tress making that is really wondorful
in its results. The ordinary mattress
is "stuHod" with almost any kind ->:
material that will nu the container.
No! so With tho "Westminster" mat
tress, Mr. Parker conceived tho iden
of making cones" of always first
class ctotton, iheso cones being made
by a process of his Invention that
places tho cotton in tho cones willi
all the fibre running ono way. This
t vos a springiness that one would
not think possible with cotton. Take
a bunch ul cotton, if you desire to
observe results, and wad it up in tho
ordinary manner of "stuning" a mat
tress, li i t.iko a similar bunch of
col . .? that the fibre is as nearly
RtrnlgM as you can get it, and wind
P lui onion] shape. You will at
once : . that the "wad" of cotton ls
.inst Iinji nu 1 nothing more- a wad.
The cono-shapod cotton will, how
over, present an entirely different
n pecl, with a soft spring to it that
is in ver lest roy Od by uso. No mat
tor hov/ hard tho usage given ono of
HT .e mo-flUed" mattresses, ?o
noon as the pressure is removed from
it tho natural resistanco of the calton
fibre brings it back to Rs full spring
and you have a full, springy mntirosa
again, just as though it had never
been used. Tho casing for these mai
trcssoJ Is P.lled with those "cotton
cones," laid in such manner that ono
would never suspect that tho case
was filled in any other manner than
having been filled in tho ordinary
way. Mr. Parker makes and sells
annually about $1,000 worth of thc
"Westminster" mat'.ressos under his
prcsont plans and with a limited
equipment.* (Re is now- planning to
add to his plant so that his produc
tion will bo doublo or treble that of
tho present during 1923. Tho "West
minster" mattress ls, wo believe, far
?superior in tho servico lt will givo
to any we have over soon in the way
of cotton mattresses. ' lt seems to
combine to a marked degree the bet
ter qualities of tho felt mattress and
others of supposed best types of con
struction. Mr. Parker never whole
sales his mattresses, lie sells them
direct to tho users. Asked as to the
reason for this, Mr. Parker stated
that if he wholesaled thom the price
would be prohibitive, necessitating
tho adding of freight charges, hand
ling and tho wholesaler's and retail
or's profits. By selling direct to tho
user he is enabled to sell his mat
tresses at practically tho same price
as the ordinary product is handed
ever to the purchaser. He, however,
sells his product at a "delivered"
price, placing them in tho homos of
tho purchasers with no extra charge.
Mr. Parker had several very useful
articles besides mattresses in his -x
hiblt at tho fair. One of tho things
he prides himself on is an invention
of his which makes possible the com
plete changing of bedding without
disturbing tho occupant. This inven
tion is used by many hospitals now,
and has proven of wonderful benefit
where patients who aro critically ill
are being cared for. My. Parker is a
very interesting talker and never
tiros of explaining and demonstrat
ing the evident merits of his product.
There wore other oxhibits that de
serve minuto description, but at this
time cannot be touched upon. The
community booths of several com
munities were most excellent, show
ing the resul s of thrift and a little
effort to display thom. These and
other things too numerous to touch
upon at length were creditable alike
to tho fair and to the county.
! Only six weeks' time was at the
disposal of the fair management and
exhibitors after decision was made
by Westminster to hold the County
Fair, and the exhibition of agricul
tural products, beautiful and well
kept farm animals, chickens and tur
keys wei^t *.o show that Oconeo 's
ready at any time lo put on display
exhibits that will rival those of the
older and rupposedly better sections
of our State and our nation. Thc
flowers, fruits and canned goods f
ali kinds and tho fancy work, gave
evidence that our women aro alive
to progress and keeping step with the
advancements that aro bringing our
section to the pinnacle of progressive

' By tho help ot Tanlac I hnvo
overcome a case of nervous Indiges
tion I had suffered from for ton or
twelve years," is tho emphatic state
ment of Norman W. Brown, well
known wall paper and paint dealer,
of 213 North Cedar St. Charlotte, N.
"My stomach was always out of
fix, and everything disagreed with
me. I was troubled with heartburn
and dizziness, and at times there was
a pressure of gas around my heart
that almost cut off my breath.
"Since taking Tanlac my digestion
is fine. My appetite is a wonder and
I eat just anything I want. In fact,
my stomach acts and foots just like
a new one, and my nerves are just
as steady as a die. To put it all in a
few words, I am Just tho same as <t
new man. It's a pleasure for mo to
tell my friends about Tanlac."

A dispatch from Scranton, Penna.,
says :
Headed by policemen, firemen and

sand citizens of Oliphant, five miles
north of bore, recently marched on
tho Uclawaro and Hudson Railroad
and confiscated four cars of coal to
supply churches a<fd schooVjs that
have been without fuel for weeks.
The Federal government and State
Fuel Commission had been accused
by tho Oliphant people of ignoring
their pleas, and hence they Cook mat
ters into their own hands and seized
the coal.

Hurry, mother! A teaspoonful of
"California Fig Syrup" now will
thoroughly clean the littlo bowels,

easy because lt never fails to work
all the sour bile and poisons right
out of the stomach and bowels with
out griping or upsetting the child.
Tell your druggist you want only

which has directions for babies and
