LARGE ATTENDANCE.
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
