He then picked up his vanqu'shed adver sary a;;d carried him off the stage, to the gr at amusement of the spec tators. PEARL HIGH SCHOOL FOOT BALL THIS YEAR. From the present status of things it appears that the public will not have an opportunity to rnjoy tne splendid exhibition of football the Pearl High School team h.38 been furnishing for several years. F-ofs. Cameron and Washington, who have bern the main stays in the High School Association, have given up the management of the team, and from what can be learned the Red and "White will not be seen on the grld-j iron this fall. This announcement cor-". ? as a sur prise to the people. Many have been heard to express their regrets and consider the abandonment of this form of athletics in the TP.gh School a step backward. Pearl High has made a reputation on the checkered field that is envia ble. The preparatory . schools bad come to look upon the boys from the city schools as foemen worthy of their 6teel. In fact, the big teams had to hustle to subdue these High School boj-s. The people of the city were very proud of the High . School boys as they were all from the fam ilies of the home folks. The games' played by them were gaining In popu larity, and in a few years promised to rival the Fisk-Meharry game. Prof. Henry A. Cameron is one of the best coaches in the business, and it is certain that his services will be eagerly sought by some other Insti tution if it is finally decided that the game will be dropped from the High School. FAIR A SUCCESS. General Manager Preston Taylor States Largest Attendance in His tory of Organization. Without any serious break in the weather to hinder a large attendance, the annual session of the Colored State Fair was successfully closed in the city.

Rev. Pres ton Taylor, General Manager, and Mr. W. T. Hightower, who had charge of the gates, report that each day the attendance was better than last year. The exhibits of live stock were not as numerous, yet the fair was more representative from a state view point, as eight counties were said to have been represented in the exhibits. The President of the Fair Associa tion, Hon. J. C. Napier, who is Regis ter of the Treasury, and who was here and officiated at the opening; the Secretary, Dr. J. B. Singleton, the President of the Ladies' Auxiliary, Mrs. N. H. Pius; Secretary, Mrs. H. A. Boyd, and in fact, the entire aux iliary of women, who worked so faith fully, are encouraged over the out come of the exhibits, which repre sented the state of Tennessee in its annual fair. The prizes, cash as well as in awards, go to many counties in the state. The horse show at night furnished the most enoyable enter tainment of the evening. Many thoroughbred animals were shown on the track under the glare of the brilliant lights on the race course. The judges, each night, made impar tial distribution of the prizes.
