KNOTT'S FIRST FAIR IN SEVEN
YEARS A TREMENDOUS
Fair Under Ausplcea of Achievement
(To The Citiaen)
At a meeting of the Knott County
Board of Education to-day, It wal
jokingly handed out that the peopl
who walked to the Knott County Fair
on Saturday lart, had to go back by
way of the ridges, because the roada
were so full of automobilea and
horses. Opinion vary aa to the num
ber of people present all the way
from two thousand to five thousand,
most peopte voting for three thous
and. The store did a thriving bus
iness, profit being measured in
hundreds of dollars. Francis cash
store took in $4.r1.30 before dark,
and the business kept up away after
that. Folks from all over the county
thronged the stores, the athletic field,
the cour' house and the street
IVopte began to come into Ilindman
at seven o'clock in the morning and
a steady stream kept up until about
eleven when a parado of automobiles,
numbering around forty-five, arrived
from Whitesburg, headed by a band.
The total number of cars in Ilindman
was in the neighborhood of fifty.
The cars were outnumbered by teams
and the bed of the creek for a couple
of miles, had horses hitched to every
available post and tree. The fair
was the biggest the town of Hin,l
man has ever known, and it looks as
though the benefits derived from it
are going to make permanent land
marks of prog-ess for Knott County.
The Fair was engineered by the
Knott County Achievement Contett,
the Knttt County School Supervisors,
The Knott County Home Demonstra
tion Agent. Mrs. Warm, an. I officials
of the Achievement Contest being re
sponsible. The Court House was
used for exhibits, and the athletic
we-c carried on at the athletic fi-M.
A great many schools were represen
ted, and the day opened with tho
gathering of all the rchnol child-en
in front of tho court house for sing
ing. Some of the school teachen
had come from a great distance,
barging all the children of their
schools with them.
A special feature was the large
number of good speakTs. These in
cluded Pr. M. F. Wright, of Seco.
George Clark, County superinten
dent of Letcher County, Mr. Frazier,
Iietcher County, and Professor Baird,
of Berea. Senator Smith introduced
the speakers. The topic of the day,
Good Roads, was so ably presented
by the speakers that there is not
much doubt in the minds of most of
the people present as to the future
of the highways and byways of Knott
County. A prize of fifty dolars hnd
been offered by the Knott County
Achievement Contest for the best
piece of road work done by the
schoo's on the road working days,
September 27 and 28, when every
body in the county that was able,
turned out and levelled up mud holes,
cut down hills, drained, ditched,
blasted and otherwise turned every
stone for better highways. This
prize was awarded at the Fair, and
was tarried off by the Betty
T-oublesome School, of which E. A.
Hammons is in charge. The pupils,
teacher and community of this
school and had done nothing less
than moved a mountain. After thnt
they had ditched, tiled and drained,
dug, levelled and smoothed, to su-h
an extent that travelling conditions
in the district are quite reversed.
All the schools and communities 'n
the county were highly commended
on the excellent work they have done
on the road probl-m. Albert E.
Smith's School, at St. Nicholas, came
close second for the prize. I
