fair grounds earlio
ever before. Last
were ninety-nine exhibits entered for
the fair, when in previous years very
little stuff started coming in until
Monday.
As you enter the gates you first see
he Midway and side shows of the
rnival. The amusement feature of
the fair this year is being furnished
by K. G. Barkoots' World Famous
Shows and includes all the regular
side-shows, candy wheels, dolls, good
looking girls, merry-go-round, whip
and freaks.
The fair association office, the
brains of the whole body, was a regu
lar beehive of activity Saturday, Mon
day and Tuesday. It was from the
desk in this little office that the chaos
of the incoming products was sorted
distributed and arranged. Here Ed.
Bennett and J. C. Johnson worked
hour after hour to give Marion her
usual top-notch fair.
The racing featuro of the fair this
year promises to be the best for some
years past. Lovers of this sport will
have the opportunity of seeing many
fast horses both froir. this county and
the country at large. Over sixty har- i
ness houses have been entered for the
races.

... i J il 1 1 l
The machinery building has
filled this year by the auto dealers of j
Ocala and by some few booths for the i
display of goods and advertising ma
terial. O'Neal & Holly have on dis
play one of the new Gray cars. Next
to them the Spencer-Pedrick Motor
Company has a couple of its Buicks
on display. Next to the Buicks
Tucker & Simmons have on display
two of Henry Ford's products, a Lin
coln and a "Baby Lincoln" sedan. In
another corner of the buildine this
tame firm has a display of Fordson enough to make a man commit mur
tractors and literature on Morton der to look at those good things to eat
i uu v, T.ii'and then read a sisrn that says "Do

by the Ford sedan is a Studebaker be- i
longing to McLeod &
Waters and
next in line Joe Blalock proudly
points to "Another Nash."
In addition to this display of ma
chinery there is a well arranged booth
filled with Texas products, featuring
Texaco oils. Carroll Fraser did him
self proud in the arrangement of this
booth, even if Monday night's rain did
fade the paper on the ceiling. H. O.
Cole's Omega flour will be demon
strated in a booth in'this building.
The Lewis-Chitty Company has fitted
up a space for a stove where Omega
will be turned into biscuits and angel
food cake for free distribution.
The Ocala Farm Loan Association
has a booth where it furnishes a chair
to the weary sight-seer but where he
has to listen to an explanation of the j
5 per cent money for farm loans
Two coffee houses are making hot!
coffee in this building and serving it
to all who have a taste for the bean.
Eoth the Senate and Hygeia coffee
people contend their products are the
best known to the human race. They
are there side by side for you to
sample and make your own compari
sons. Another booth in this building
displays a very pretty line of import
ed jewelry.
School Exhibits
The school exhibits of the county
are under the supervision of Mr. H.
G. Shealey this year, while those of
the Ocala schools are directly in
charge of Miss Shephard. The ex
hibit of the Ocala schools is very good
this year. There are maps of the state
of Florida and of Marion county.
Several product maps of the Unitea
States are especially interesting. Art
in the schools is shown up well by the
work displayed at the fair. Test
papers and examination papers to-
gether with scientific drawings show,ir.g is devoted to a display of pecans

the Dunnellon school i3 especially at
tractive and the art work of this
school is fine. Many of the county
-chools are represented in the exhibit
and all have pretty work and it is well
arranged and displayed. Other
schools deserving mention for the
skill and care taken in their work are
Anthony, Mcintosh. Citra. Summer
field, Knoblock, Irvine and East Mar
ion. The exhibit from the girls' indus
trial school probably attracted the
most attention in this building. The
drawings displayed by the pupils of
:his school are well worth looking at.
The reproductions cf Jigg3 and Mag
gie cartoons calls for favorable com--nents
from all who pass. In addition
o the cartoons there are many good
rawings produced by this school. Its
iisplay of pinestraw baskets is-beau-iful.
The baskets are well and ar
tistically made and many covetous
ooks are cast at them by the ladies.
Arts and Crafts Department
In the rear of the needleworK and
chool building is a corner set asida
ror Mrs. Emily Green and her display
if. arts, crafts, curios and antiques.
Mrs. Green has one of the most inter
?sting displays of the whole fair. Her
painting department is a credit to the
county. The largest display of paint
ings came from the hand of Miss
Eleanor G. Meikle. who is the art
teacher p.t the girls' industrial school
and it takes but a glance at her work
; to know why the art exhibit by the
I industrial school is so good. Miss
iMeikle's paintings and drawings are
I drawing much favorable comment.
!Mrs. Green has all manner of old fire
iarms from the time of the revolution
to the present day. Her department

a numoer oi unique wooa carv-
lings, pretty hammered brass work,
interesting old books and cloths, hand-
j painted china and more of the beauti
ful baskets made of the native pine
been i straw. Some of the prettiest baskets
in Mrs. Green's exhibit were made by
the girls at the industrial school. Mrs.
Green reports that m-jre interest has
been taken in her department this
year than ever before, and she has a
greater variety of exhibits than ever.
Culinary and Domestic Department
It should be against the law to put
on display such an outlay of gooo
things to eat as Mrs. W. H. Marsh has
charge of in this department. It is
XT,.. T lncs 'ot. Via
In glass jars there Is
"(a"U1
every imaginable iruit ana vegeiapie
There are pickles, preserves, jams and
jellies. No matter what your palate
craves it is there before you. No
matter what your taste may be there
is something in this department that
will fill the empty spot. The trouble
.vith it all is that it looks too good
to eat. You want to save it for the
what-not in the parlor. In addition
t.i these canned things there are the
cakes, pies, biscuits, cookies, dough
nuts and one exhibitor had the. nerve
to set a real table ready to eat and
then "Do Not Handle" stares you in
the face. This minature dinner has
all the necessary paraphernalia for
eating and has roast chicken that
would make a preacher lay his Bible
down and a roast ham that would
make him lay aside the chicken. Then
the salted nuts and salad Oh, go
look it over. If you are again thirsty
! stop in the northwest corner of Mrs
Marsh's department and have a free
cup of Roadway
coffee that Mrs.
Smith is so willingly distributing.
Agricultural Building
The rear room of the agricultural
building is well filled with farm pro
ducts. Marion county has a little of
everything and she has the best of
them all. Her corn looks as good as
that from Iowa (the state where the
tall corn grows). Her sweet taters
look better than any others. Her
Irishman taters will compare with the
best. Then there is a beautiful dis
play of hay and other forage crops.
In addition to the corn there is a row
of bags showing a few corn products.
j Peanuts have not been left out of the
exhibit and the oats and velvet beans
show that our livestock will not go
hungry this year.
j One table in the agricultural build-
- ana nicKory nuts. Clarion grows tne
best. A whole booth is devoted to a t
di play of sugar cane. It was almost
necessary to take off the roof of the s As has been the case for the past
building at this point in order that j few years the best agricultural ex -
the sugar cane could be stood tip onjhibits in the entire fair are those
end. Another table shows what can shown. in the community exhibits,
be done with sugar cane and the clear, IThe work done in collecting the ma-
thick syrup makes every warm -blooded
man want to put hi3 feet under a
table and call for hot cakes with Mar
ion made cane syrup. Even the bees
in Marion have been busy and a dis
play of honey in the comb and of clear
honey shows that they have little trou
ble making honey in the land of
flowers.
The Wartmann Nursery Company
has an artistic booth in this building.
The booth is constructed from orange
crate heads and tangerine crate sides,
all stained in mission finish. In the
booth they have a Wanurco tangerine
tree, samples of the Wanurco tange
rine (which you must not handle) and
a table full of literature describing j
this latest member of the citrus fam
Miss Delia Livingston presides
lay
over this booth and has a man's-size
job to enforce the "Hands Off" sign.
Before we leave this room we must j
not forget the large exhibit of fresh j
vegetables. No mitter what you want j
Marion has it. From the looks of this
display one would wonder why there
are such things as canning factories.
Some of the radishes and turnips j
look almost like the freak postcards
you have seen of a single turnip load-
ed on and completely filling a railroad
flat car. The man who got the idea j
for that postcard must have seen
Marion county vegetables.
The Citrus- Exhibit
As usual the citrus fruit
j
exhibit ;
is one of the prettiest sights of tht
fair. We may be too far north to
grow oranges, but our orange grow
ers certainly show good taste in pur
chasing their fruit to display at the
fair. The center tables in the agri
cultural building fairly groan with
the weight of pyramids of great yel
low grapefruit, golden oranges, bril
liant tangerines and kumquats. Limes
and lemons also have their place on
this table. There are oranges of all
brands. Some of the large navels ar.
jas lare as medium size grapefruit
Poultry Department
Mr. F. E. Smith (better known as
'Chicken" Smith) has charge of the
poultry department and started tell
ing the reporter all about his feather
ed flock, but it did not take the eye
of an expert to see that one look into
that building would have broken up a
colored camp meeting. The size of
seme of those hens and roosters would
make a colored person's eyes get as
big as saucers. Marion county is
making advances in her poultry and
the exhibits this year show the results
of these advances. There are 150
more exhibits on display this year
than last. The poultry building is
crowded with a larger number of ex
hibits than ever sent to our fair be
fore. In addition to the usual large
display of Rhode Island Reds, Barred
Plymouth Rocks, games, Campines,
Buff Orpingtons, Leghorns, WTiite
Wyandottes, White Plymouth Rocks,
Minorcas and Black Orpingtons, there
are several varieties of chickens not
before displayed at a Marion Count

Flowers
In one corner of the agricultural
building is a table full of Marion
grown flowers. On first sight this
looks like a hot house in a large city
but they are all home products. The
roses especially take the eye. They
have long, thick stems like hot house
roses and have the perfume that can
only be acquired from Marion's soil.
In addition to roses there are all va-
rieties of pot plants and flowers. This
display is the finishing touch to all

i ion's golden store.

Taxpayer" writing in your last issue
under the heading of Cotton Plant in
the item column.
In reply I will say that the super
intendent's salary is fixed by law and
that the legislature of 1919 created
the office of attendance officer. As a
matter of information I will say that
his services in getting non-attending
children into our schools has caused
our county to receive more than
enough to pay his salary from gr.
state apportionment fund. Now as to
the members of the county board, you
failed to comment on their salaries,
or perhaps you did, not know the
amounts. If this is the case I am
pleased to advise that the rural mem
bers receive $10.40 per month, and
the member from district No. 1
(Ocala) receives $4 per day for usu
ally a two-days' session, he not being
allowed mileage.
Now, Taxpayer, you failed to state
just how much taxes you pay, but if
should allow myself to guess, I
would put you in a class with myself
and that is small potatoes when it
comes to naving taxes. And if I
should guess how many children you
have in school I am afraid that this
number would be designated by a
goose egg.
Therefore we are at a loss to see
just why you are so much interested
in our teachers' salaries. The thought
occurs to us that maybe you are
boarding one of our teachers. We
trust, Taxpayer, that you win cheer
up, for there are better days ahead.
The ray of hope that we had when we
opened our schools has grown bright
er and brighter each day, for the good
people of our county win soon hare
paid in taxes enough to make "it pos
sible for us to have a pay day, and
then all of our teachers can pay up
their board bills. It's a sure thins?
that when the mule kicks he is not
pulling. Respectfully, T
a R. Veal,
Member Bd. of Public Instruction,
