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.

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.

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.

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. '
