, Manager Kennedy, appreciating the
importance of surround'ng th'.s star with
a competent supporting company, has
spared no pains or expense. The ward
robe is lavish and the scenic investiture
worthy of Rn organization playing the

progress we are making. The Tennessee
State Fair oilers you that opportunity.
Do not forget the dates, September -0
to Ortolwr 4, inclusive. The railroads
appreciating the great value of the fair,
have given extremely low rates. Take

Fair. Yon will go back home convinced
that our own state of Tennessee is in
the front rank of agriculture!, progress
and development.
The directors of the Tennessee State
Fair are to he felicitated upon having
concluded arrangements with The Con
T. Kennedy Show to provide the amuse
ment features this year. Transported
on thirty-two sixty-foot cars, carrying
twenty-two individual attractions and
three riding devices, thoroughly equipped
in every department, The Con T. Ken
nedy Shows are recognized as the great
est amusement enterprise of its charac
ter in the world.
The Flaza of Pleasure, mt night, pre
sents a bewildering picture a veritable
World's Fair, in miniature. Thousands
of electric lights make this section even
brighter than day. To provide the clea
trical illumination is carried two com
plete lighting plants, and this part of
the equipment alone represents an out
lay of $40,000. The wagon fronts arc
resplendent with gold leaf and allegor
ical carvings. A world of money has
been invested In the paraphernalia.
To get away from the usual method
of presenting amusement attractions in
separate exhibitions the freaks with The
Con T. Kennedy Shows have been as
scmbled under one canvaa, one price of
admission being charged to see them all
in tne selection ot tnese curious peo
ple for public exhibition, Manager Ken
nedy has been careful to elimniate anv
feature distasteful or at all unwelcome
to the most fastidious patrons.

The announcement that the truster.'
of the Tennessee State Fair have con
cluded negotiations with the Con T. Ken
nedy Shows to provide all of the, amuse
ment features this year, comes with
more than an ordinary degree of inter
est and insures the patrons of an en
tertainment diversified and high-class.
Among the twenty-two shows which
Manager Con T. Kennedy is to.bring us,
one feature which should appeal most
strongly to our people is the Cabaret
Show. Having spent months in Chicago,
New York and the capitals of Europe
during the past winter, Manager Ken
nedy evolved the idea of presenting to
his carnival patrons a form of variety
entertainment such as has not heretoforq
been in evidence with this class of an
amusement enterprise. From advance re
ports it would appear that the Cabaret
Show ii of exceptional magnitude and
While the management has exercised
great care in the selection of talent and
in the form of entertainment, we are
led to believe fhat although the objec
tionable features of the Europoan cab
aret have been eliminated the corps of
Kennedy entertainers present a program
of unusual interest. Vaudeville plays an
important part in the amusement of the
masses all over the world, and it is fair
to presume that the entertainment to
be accorded the patrons of the Cabaret
Show, a leading feature of the Con T.
Kennedy aggregation, will be entertained
in an exceptional manner. There will
be ten high-class vaudeville acts, to say
nothing of the exponents of modern

l'JIU, will ' be right up to th Kirk
n way of an educational expotfiiioa, o'l
with an amusement feature tWil will
rank with the best fairs in this niry.
They know that the exhibits of atva
btock, poultry, woman's work, rkikkv's
work, and all that goes to make up a
reat show, will be collected aU eMb-
ted. They know that the amueiWaat
features, the raeing, the night bm
show, and the fire works, and ih fee
acts will be right up to the staaAwd,
and there will not be an idle m)Mt.
Something to learn and sornctliing to
amuse every minute of the week.
The low rateM, then, is the moat im
portant announcement that can be aia4e,
as the cost of getting to the fair te al
ways the first consideration. What will
be the charge for a round trip ttekei
will be asked if you are contenipktkg
going to the fair, and, of ceurso, y
have made up your mind to go prvnle4
the railroads will do the proper twwg
n giving a low rate on account of tle
reat annual event visited by over W,-
000 people.
First, we want to tell you that u yen
live in a radius of 200 mile you ean
come to the Tennessee State Fak kr
one fare for the round trip, pine 25
cents. Now, understand, if the raaweiMl

an additional 25 cents to get ywm W

This cheap rate will be erven prac
tically all over the Nashville, Owtfcv
nooga & St. Louis System, the Tcwwea
see Central, and to points as faT nrta
as Horse Cave, Ky., and as far (wwth
as Decatur and Tuacumbia, Ala am the

Important part on thia continent. TFbBe

From the. colonial beginning of this
lountry there has been some apprecia
tion of the fact that our really big de
velopment problems were agricultural
problems. For many years this appre
ciation was merely latent. After vast
tillablo ureas had been added to our pos
icssions, and as the possibilities of tor
millions of fertile acres began to bo un
derstood, this appreciation incrcastMl
amazingly. Long since it has become mi
active force in our national life. Today
men in all walks of life are studying the
farm, farmers and farming. Giant armies
are marching forward under banners
bearing such inscriptions as, "IW'k to
the land," "Improve your seed," "Wfop
robbing your soil," "Rotate your crop,"
'Systematize your farm," "Rne Tiiif
and better live Rtock." You can sveiire
