Tho I. J. Man at the Barbourville Fair and
Other Points.
Having gotten in tho custom of going
to nil tho fairs In these parts nnd doing
pretty well for tho iNTr.itior. Journal nt
them all, I left Stanford on Friday morn,
ing for Btrbourville to bo present on tho
Inst daj of tho second meeting of tho
Knox County Fair Association has held.
Fortunately for me an immense crowd
nttuudi'd nnd it was a first-rate opportti
nity to increase our already reHppctahly
largo list nt HiHt point. Tho opportunity
wtw grasped and the cnnseuuencH is
the mail on Tuesday and Friday
ings at Barbourville will weigh n few
pounds more than it has heretofore. A
goodly number of our old renewed
their subscriptions, which too
helped tho cause to some extent.
Tho lair proved a very creditanlo exhibition
of stock and each ring was well
filled. The trots nnd running races were
interesting and altogether it was n fair
that Knox county has aright to be proud
A special fenture was the floral hnll,
which was literally jammed with various
exhibits It might well have been call
ed an agricultural hall al30, for n considerable
portion was used for the display
of agricultural products of every kind.
The show in this lino was particularly
good and showed that Knox county has
eome good farmers herself.
Tho programme for Friday was such a
large one that it could not be completed
nnd the fair was continued over till Sat
urday, when. I am told, another large
crowd attended. The premiums were
not remarkably large nnd as there were
a great many "specials" the association
evidently came out away ahead."
I was impressed with the good looks
of tho crowd Friday. The men, as n
general thing, aro refined and substantial
lookiug, and the ladies, if you will
pardon tho slang, are "out of sight."
Knox county is ahead of several of her
sister counties in this hue and in fact
nearly comes up to tho blue grass.
To make it even more pleasant for the
visitor within their gates the young men
give a delightful hop, Friday evening,
at the new hotel. There were somo 40
couples present and from 0 p. m. till 3
a. si , Terpsichore wns worshipped. Lots
of pretty girls, dressed in tho latest approved
hop style, wero there and tho
scene altogether was one of beauty nnd
The town of Barbourville is not what
tho more sanguine thought it would bo
when the boom was on, n couple or so
years ago, but it is u good town anyway
and lots of business is done there. Editor
Lewis D.Sampson claims that ho has
the best town in the State, and whilo I
do not ngree with him altogether, I must
ndtnit that it is a good place and n most
excellent town to secure subscriptions
to a first-class newspaper.
A family by the name of Andrews,
living in Barbourville, mado music for
tho fair. There were in tho band, besides
tho father and mother, five 6onB
and n daughter and the music they
made was good indeed. The daughter
blows n slide trombone with much grnce
and ability, while Mrs. Andrews "toots"
a cornet like a veteran.
From the lair I went, to Cumberland
Gap, thenco to Middlesboro and then to
Pinevlllo three "boom-busted" towns
in ono day. A feeling of sadness pervades
my very soul when I look at these
places, which, two or three years ago,
wo spoke of and looked on as "futuio
greats." Cumberland Gap seems to be
sleeping a sleep that knows no waking.
Most of the people who could do so have
moved away nnd vacant business houses
and dwellings can bo seen on oveiy
Middlesboro, so the citizens sty, is
looking up and may the good Lord help
it to do so. It is claimed that work will
soon begin at the Watts' Steel plant aud
that 1,000 men will be given employment.
Whether this is true or not time
only will toll. The Watts claim that
thoy have expended $1,300,000 there nnd
thnt thoir pay roll for tho meu they
have nlready on the grounds amounts to
upwards of $12,000 per month. One
salaried man tho steel maker draws
of that amount.
Tho tannery, which gives 203 men
employment, and which, by the way, is
the second largest in the world, uses 500
Jiides a. day and has been doing so several
months. The iron works and South
Boston Gun Works, w.w told, aro assured
nnd will be in operation ere many
moons wax and wane.
Pinevillu looked mighty dull, but
there are those who are sanguine that
only a little time is needed to make it
what it promised to be a good little
city. Some building is going on then,
but the hum of industry is uot so deafening
as it was some years ao. The
Pineville people aro like David
Micawber, always waiting for
something to turn up, aud beeni to be
about as well satisfied with their lot ns
was that character. K. O. W.
