VOL. 44 * TUPELO MISS. FRIDAY OCTOBER 13, 1916 NO30 Lee County Fair The Lee County Fair which 'opened Tuesday morning, is the best fair we have ever had. The exhibits of live stock, including horses, mules, colts, hogs and cattle, are revelations to the peo ple of the county who have nev er before seen such a collection of good animals brought togeth er in one of our fairs. The agricultural exhibit em brace a variety which cannot be exceeded in any agricultural dis play. The corn club boys, the pig club boys and the canning club gfirls are there with the very best in every line. The arrangement of the dis plays is the work of an artist in that line and under the direction of Mr. J. E. Ruff these have been placed to an advantage. Miss Bolt, at the head of the do mestic science department, with her assistants, has on display canned goods put up by Lee oounty girls that rival the fa mous California exniDits. The poultry exhibit was small, but the entries are first class and the birds would be prize winners an any poultry show. The hogs include all of the best breeds such as the Hamp-t shire, Poland China, Duroc Jer sey, Berkshire, and 0. I. C. Members of the boys pig club have an extraordinary good col lection and their entries are re ceiving much praise from all who inspect them. The cattle include the best breed of beef and miik—the Jersey, Red Poll, Hereford, Poll Angus, and Holstein. Many stands of young mules, mule colts and Jior. es were entered and the judges found difficulty in selecting the b.st in the lot where all v: re rood. There were Jacks. Jennies and c its t.iat we I*-- High bie-'i a id regis tered. One pair of deer, the prop-rry of Rufus M \,im y, of Andrews Chape), attracted much attention. In the ladies work department there were many artistic pieces of handiwork which were beau tiful and valuable. The races each day were good and the crowds were highly com plimentary of the exhibits and the events of each day. Every body who attended pronounced this the best fair ever had in Tu pelo. The aviators who contracted to flv during the week disappointed the managers, who regretted this feature had to be omited af ter being advertised. jj Federal Reserve fj |i Service \\ || ' f is ii Your checks when ; <. i | f j drawn on this ban': are jj?

For ad alts and children. SOc. Fine ^tock Bought • T. C. Lauderdale, of Shannon, was here Monday morning for the purpose of delivering to Will Hunt, of Corona, a bunch of Holstein cattle which he had sold Mr. Hunt. The cattle had been driven through from Shannon and in cluded twelve cows and heifers and one male. They were all under three years'old and a fine looking body, and representanve of the famous Holstein breed. The Holstein is fast being re cognized as one of the great dairying and beef cattle, a com bination which is now command ing attention among cattle breed ers. The Holstein stands at the head of the list as a milk cow, the A. & M. College owning one that gives ten gallons of milk a day. As a dairy cow. while the milk is not as-rich as that of th’e Jersey, the quantity from the Holstein more than off-sets the difference and far surpasses the Jersey as a beef cattle. The males in the Jersey class are worthless as beef, while the Hol steins are placed among the first in thp hppf pIqoc Mr. Hunt is taking a forward step in the matter of meeting the changed conditions and will profit by his determination to no longer follow up cotton planting as the chief source of revenue on his farm. Cattle breeding is the surest and safest route to pros perity on the farm, and the lead ers in this movement are doing a public service in furnishing a practical demonstration of how the proposition will work oat.

A traveling man at the hotel seeing the bunch of rough and readies come in inquired of the negro beli boy what it all meant. The negro said that he did not know who they were nor what they were there for, hut he thought they were a set of Mis - issiopi highwaymen. Amory doubtless coincides with the viewg of the bell boy, since they charge the Mississir pians with taking somethirg from them just as they would candy from a baby. WANTED—Eggs, Butter and Hidep.
