Pelnt Comfort XIV In Taking First Honors Showed to International ' ( Stockmen Southern Po. bilities One Incident. vig Using Peat In Germany. Peat coke in Germany is proving Serviceable in many ways. It is not only valuable for generating elec tricity at moorland stations, but is tnuch used by blacksmiths and for va . rious metallurgical purposes, espe cially as a substitute for charcoal in producing high-grade iron. A new turf-cooking plant at Elizabeth-Fehn, Oldenburg, converts 30 tons of peat Into nine of coke, with gas and tar as by-products. Specially-designed ovens are used and the gas generated Is made to heat the retorts and to generate, eleotric current to drive the peat dredging machines. The tar yields creosote oil, gas oil, par affin, sulphuric acid and ammonia. f S"2 REMEMBER j f ' jjpit A few years ago there came to the Tri-State Fair as an entry in the live stock show a Mississippi Hereford hull. This bull was quite the pride of at least one Mississippi farm. He had a noble'bearing, his marks were good he was of right weight and magnlfl cent vitality. There were other bulls at this fai hundred or more of them. They came from all over the continent, There were several of them who were the pride of their Canadian owners others had ranged the wide sweeps of the West, a few more had been bred In the valleys of New England. They all wore ribbons of some recent trl umph. The practically unknown Mississippi entry came into the ring the next day as a mystery. He did not remain so Tery long, however. He was walked around a few times. The owners of other champions gazed at him critical Jy. The judge confirmed their fears by tieing the blue ribbon on his horns He was Point Comfort XIV, pride of Lavernet Farm, of Jackson. And few weeks later when he went to Kan sas City and Chicago, and other judges added to his honors and he returned to Mississippi, the grand champion of all the Herefords, This is only one instance of the tre mendous power of the Tri-State Fair Just a sample demonstration of the great good that it has done the Mem phis territory in encouraging breeders to raise their stock for the best that is in them. 1 This year a new international grand champion will be crowned, but it is safe to say that at least one of his closest competitors if not the cham pion himself will be one of the en trants at the Tri-State. Over $10,000 will be awarded in prizes for cattle alone at the Tri-State Fair Stock Show. Nearly $3,000 will be awarded for swine. All of the other departments of the fair are offering attractive cash premiums. Special rates to Memphis have been secured on the railroads for the ten days of the fair.

Announcement has been made by the Tri-State Fair Assocation that dur ing the fair, which opens this year oa September 26, there will be six days of harness racing. The Tri-State Fair Grounds are built around the historic old Monteomerv track, known as a record breaking oval on which such celebrities as Dan Patch, and others of hardly lesser fame, made fame for themselves. Entries for open purposes will close Monday, September 20, and indica tions are that some of the fastest horses in the country will receive the plaudits of the thousands in the big grand stand. There is nothing, in the world that will make a man come to his feet quicker than a neck-and-neck finish with good horses on a good track, and as Memphis will have both of them during fair week, the craving of even the most rabid race horse fan ehould be satisfied. An elaborate Horse Show for the first four nights of the fair will also be a pleasing feature to lovers of good horseflesh. There will be special railroad rates on all lines. The fair will run for ten days, and the races will be only one of the many big features. f 1 -v . ' M 4 ... : ( . ., .-Mb wk. .... . ....

D O O O O O O o o ft o o Saved Girl's Life "I. want to tell you what wonderful benefi I have re ceived from the use of Thedford's Black-Draught," writes Mrs. Sylvania Woods, of Clifton Mills, Ky. 'Jit certainly has no equal for la grippe, bad colds, liver and stomach troubles. I firmly believe B ack-Draught saved my little girl's life. When she had he measles. they went in on her, but one good dose o' Thedford's Black-Draught made them break out, and the has had no more trouble. I shall never be without THEDFORD'S ( i t t c c t t L LIAC ma i t GREATEST FAIR IN HISTORY OF SOUTH WILL BE HELD AT MEMPHIS, SEPT. 26-OCT. 5 Tortune Is Offered in Premiums Stock Show Will Be Biggest Yet, and Many Splendid Amusement Features Have Been Secured. The greatest fair in the history of the South is the promise of the Tri State Fair Association this year. . The fair, which has made Memphis as well known In the fair realm as the International Stock Show has made Chicago in the stock show world, will open this year on Septem ber 26 and will close October 5, ac midnight. Nothing has been left undone this year. Nothing has been left to chance. For a year the directors of the fair or ganization have planned for the 1915 triumph, and they say that It will, be a triumph indeed. Here will be shown, as cannot be shown in any other spot in the coun try, the great changes through which the South has passed in the last year. Diversification, the improvement in stock breeding, the coming of poultry into its own as a money producer, the crowning of Corn as Crown Prince to King Cotton, will all be reflected dur ing the ten days of the big exposition. A wealth of premiums have been of fered. They cover every imaginable line. The woman with a recipe' for good apple pie can go to Memphis and get the pie prize while her husband is down at the stock ring watching a blue ribbon being pinned on the little Jersey that he bought at the fair only two years before. Over $16,000.00 will be offered in stock prizes alone. And then in addi tion to this 11,500.00 will be offered for poultry premiums, and large sums for agricultural exhibits and woman's work. The Poultry Show will be the big gest in the history of the fair; the. farm exhibits promise to be better than ever before; the industrial dis plays will be a splendid tribute to the progress made by the South In this line. It is a great fair this Memphis fair. It has been a great fair for several years and just as an indication of how splendidly it has grown , let it be known that the live stock1 department alone is now seven times as big as it was in 1910. Realizing that the visitors to the fair will rel!sh modern amusement anJ the best of it, the amusement commit tee has provided not only splendid harness race3 this year, but has also made arrangements with several of the most famous autpmobile speed merchants in the country to battle for trophies on the fast mile track. One of the best handicaps of the country has been booked for the fair, and there will be an elaborate Horse Show during the first four nights. Every department of the fair this year will be complete. It will be with out a doubt the greatest fair that any Southern city ever attempted, and it is expected to draw an attendance that will far pass previous years. The railroads have joined with the three states and city of Memphis In making the fair a success and have offered attractive rates. Local agents at each station have full information and will gladly furnish It for the ask ing. It is understood that a great many people in this section especially the most enterprising of the local farm ers and business men, have expressed their intention of going to Memphis for the fair.

AUTO DEMONS AT THE FAIR Memphis Will See World's Greatest Speed Merchants in Races. A pretty compliment was paid the women of the South by the Tri-State Fair Association when announcement was made several years ago that an eptire building at the Memphis Fair would be turned over to them for their exhibits. This building has since that time developed into one of the prettiest and most interesting; spots on the grounds, and is again in charge of the women for the fair which opens Sep tember 6th. It is safe to assert that it has more men visitors than any other one build ing at the fair, and this year the ladies in charge of the Women's De partment are determined to make it even more attractive than before. Miss Ada Harris, who has been chief assistant and in the secretary's office for a number of years, directress of the department, announces that there will be three divisions in which the ladies of the three states may com pete. They will be culinary, decora tive art and textile. Each one of these divisions has a score or more of sections. For in stance, in the culinary division there is a section of catsups, pickles, canned vegetables, fruits, marmalades and a dozen other sections that make one's mouth water. Seven different kinds of pies are eli gible for competition, but they will all come under the general heading of "pies like mother used to make." At least that is provided they do not lock them in a steel cage while the Judges are examining their various good points. v. j All of which causes every able bodied man at the fair to wish ha were a Judge.
