EOUGATIQNAL AND CHILDREII'S DEFT (By Miss Gertrude Hill, Director.) This dt'r;iitinent of the Fair promises to be of interest from an educational aa well as from the standpoint of beauty and pleasure. Possibly none of th general depart ments of the State Fair have been de veloped along broader line tlian the children's work. Just as greater facilities for a more getiwul education are be'ng developed by schools and colleges, just no does the State Fa:r keep abreant of the needs of its yung citizens and offers them every inspiration by exhibits and premiums to develop their talent9 and thus become part of the St-ate's progress. In the educational features provided, the CUild Welfare Department, under the uianagrnient of Mrs. Kuuene Cruteher will represent all interests related to the welfare of the children, and intended especially to point to remedial imusuies which 'may improve the common lot of childhood. All aspects of the environ ment f children is considered: infant Feeding," "Hints on Cloth ing," "Sanitation" and "Child Labor." A model school rest room will be fitted up for iimpcction. The Story Tellers' League and the children's play shops the indoor play room, and the. model pray ground, the outdoor play and manual ac tivity in the life of the child is planned to be one of the best, most useful and instructive of this department. Stories will be told every day, not only to amuse the chid but to instruct the older ones "how to tell stories." The play ground, an immense shady, grassy plot, located just outside the door f the Educational Hall, is under the management of Mr. J. A. Carter of Boys Club, and Mr. John A. Burt. The play ground is open to all, for play and inspection. An rspeciaHy attractive educational feature will be the music under the very capable supervision of Mrs. Prudence Simpson Dresser, who is planning three concerts for the week and a musical lec ture from Milton II. Conk. Mrs. Uvesser is, herself, of national reputation and these concerts will be of the very highest type and of great educational value.

Sunday school work is given special notice, premiums wing offered for primary and junior work and is under Mrs. Isaac Sewell, who is known to the whole State as Elementary Secretary of Sunday school work. A upec'al premium list is offered to pupils of rural schools, also normal schools, city high schools and county schools. The Comnereiiil Educational Depart ment contains an unusual line of pre miums trivi n by Nashville business men. Displays of clerical work, factory work, :l-y cii'-ir.ing, i-tiuly making, laundry, etc., will he deiu'instrnted daily. The increased interest in the Children's Department, from number and excellence of exhibits to variety of classes, has ne cessitated the compilation of a special catalog and a separate exhibition hall. The catalog was arranged early in the spring and sent all over the State to .'ounty superintendents of public instruc tion and high school principals, asking their co-operation in State Fair work and many have responded. The Fair management is offering one hundred dollars each in premiums to Hoys' Corn Clubs and to the Girls' Can ning Clubs of the State. Mr. Clark Woodward of Middle Ten nessee State Normal will send a magnifi cent display of manual training, and Miss Arther, Domestic Science teacher of the 871 me school, will exhibit. Mr. S. T. McCaul, of tlie Tennessee Industrial School, is enthusiastic over his display of the actual work to be shown by his boys. Many of the county and high schools in the State are planning for exhibits and it is expected that the exhibits by individuals will be larger than ever before. Miss Will Petway Is chairman of Children's Work. We want the boys and girls from over the State to visit the State Fair. No matter in what a child, man or woman may be Interested, he or she will find ere the best results, inspiration and new ideas ready for inspection and itudy. Write for catalog and Information. Plan to exhibit for your own good and by your success or failure, help some Dne else. "I am going to the State Fair," is your ilogan, so prepare to start Fair-ward In September.

You can have freedom by using A GAS RANGE When you use Gas for cooking you re quire no storage room for fuel. Gas is not expensive to buy in small quantities.
