West Tennessee Fair Association Has a Remarkably Successful Meeting. An Average of 5,000 People a Day Enter the Grounds Receipts About Cover Last Year's Misfortune And Current Expenses. The Fourth Annual Meeting of the West Tennessee Fair Associa tion came to a close last Saturday. There were four days full of pleas ure and profit. Everybody was in a good humor and everyone en joyed the show. There was a feast of attractions on the grounds and at the theatre. On the first day at least 2,000 school children were in attendance,, and the scene was inspiring alto gether. Bright faces and frocks and shouting boys caught the eye and ear. They marched to the grounds, each school with its badges, requiring probably two hours or more to pass through the gates, marching to the Woman's Building, then through the midway to the grandstand. '.''".' . On Friday, Governor's Day, Gov. Patterson and his esort, led by the Second lennessee llegiment Band and Company E, U. 0. V., marched to the fair grounds at 1 o'clock. When the procession reached the grandstand an ovation awaited them. A platform had been made and the governor was welcomed by Senator McRee. Gov ernor Patterson's address followed, and it abounded with warm and cordial greetings to the good people of Obion County. He spoke in llattering terms of our citizens, paying the highest compliments. He eulogized our institutions, our commercial interests and agricultural industries. He spoke of the public spirit and achievements of the officers and stockholders of the fair association. He was very kind and generous, especially so to the ladies. He loved Obion County he couldn't help it. Ibe adudress wa3 received with long and whole some applause. A visit to the departments showed that the exhibits were varied and of the highest merit and standard, Iney were all complete, but none mi large and attractive as the Woman's building. Here was demon strated the fact that effort brings its reward. No department of the fair has been so thoroughly and constantly developed as the depart ment of fiDe arts, domestic arts, culinary and floriculture, and no such exhibits have ever before been seen in Union City. The ladies de serve the largest measure of credit, so also does Mr. Massey, who had charge ot the floral., exhibit. ,-. A new departure for Union City business men was the arrangement of booths in different parts of the Woman's Building for display and advertising purposes. In the center of the main entrance was the First National Bank exhibit, with Cashier Walter Howell in charge. Air. Howell had a case showing bank and treasury notes of Various denominations, ranging from one dollar' to one thousand dollars. A one-thousand dollar note Was the most conspicuous and attractive part of the display. Further to the left was the Bransford & Andrews booth, a very creditable display by the dependable jewelers and opticians, including watches, silverware, jewelry, diamonds, cut glass, hand-painted china, etc. Mr. Bransford or Mr. Lee were here to meet the visitors. Next was the attractive exhibit of stoves, ranges, fancy and hand painted china, cut srlass, etc. Over this department was J. C. McRee, giving practical demonstrations with the Monarch Oil Stove, one of the best in the market. This was a great drawing card for .the Nail- ling-Iveiser Hardware Co. Close bv was the irresistable and irrepressible Charley Denham with a new consignment of Meyer Bros', goods, including the fine coffee, and Charley gave a cup of hot coffee to every thirsty individ ual who would accept the favor. The Bell Furniture Company had a well arranged display, in cluding a fine bronze bedstead, trimmed and complete with mattress and white counterpane, inlaid .tables and plate mirrows, tastefultyl planned and neatly executed by Mr. lseii, wno was in cnarge. There are no more enterprising merchants thau Morgan-Verhine Co., and in charge of a well designed booth was,J, K. Murphy, who has made a very flattering reputation in the advertising lin. In the display' were druggets, rugs, ladies' garments, millinery, fancy no tions, etc., a very creditable exhibit of the Morgan-Verhine Company lines. .' : ' ' - ' " Near the midway in a neat little tent was another display by the Union City Hardware & Furniture Co. Here were shown the famous Buck Stoves, the' old reliable Charter Oak, the Majestic, and other valuable aod attractive articles arranged with tact and skill. Over this exhibit was Chas. McDaniel, who is one of the county's best young business uiert,. Mr. McDaniel has been largely instrumental in the success of the laree hardware concern at Obion, and is now bend ing bis energies to the growth of the Union City Hardware & Furni ture Company with success. Alexander & Tisdale with their International engines and machinery were nearby with demonstrations. , ; . Stuuones & Son bad their fine log and road wagons on exhibition, which are always a feature of tbv fair. .. Many and various other attractions could be named, including the 11: FOLLOW OUR GROCERY ; - BOY .,' .'.'' .'and you will find him entering hundreds , of homes of satisfied customers.
