STATE FAIR ITEMS.
President Wilson may visit the Ten
nessee State Fair. The Board of Fair
Trustees for the State of Tennessee has
invited President Woodrow Wilson to
Nashville and to the Tennessee State Fair
September 22, Tennessee Day. It is
possible that the President may attend,
should the great stress under which he
now labors in guiding the government
through this period of war and turbu
lence among the nations cease; as his
attendance on this day would enable
him to get in touch and become ac
quainted with more of Tennessee's peo
ple than any other occurrence.
Hon. H. K. Br y son, our Commis-
soner of Agriculture, was out at the
fair grounds last week and inspected
the $25,000 building improvements now
under way and the added facilities for
the accommodation and comfort they
will give exhibitors and visitors. '
The wide-awake farmers and breed
ers all over the State are busy coaxing
meir - pumpkins, waiermmuus, com,
fruit, etc., to put on extra weight, size,
color, form and quality; their horses,
ponies, jacks, mules, cattle, sheep, hogs
and, chickens to put on their holiday
attire and be in readiness to receive the
blue ribbon at the Tennessee State Fair.
Secretary Busswurm is up to his ears
in mail, requests for premium lists, but
be is a glutton for work and keeps call
ing for more. Now don't let's disap
point him. Mail your request right
away and see if we can't swamp him.
In the afternoon and evening when
you have seen the vast displays of Ten
nessee's products and have wearied of
the many educational features you will
sit in the grandstand and be refreshed
by the ' soothing strains of the great
Scotch Hilanders 35-piece band and
Madam Frederick Von Stechow and
her Nashville Symphony Band; your
interest in the genus equinus will be re'
vived by the Lowande-Eugene Society
Riding Act; you will marvel at the
wonderful feats of the Eight Peruvian
Acrobats; you will be thrilled by the
death-defying aerial act of the Cevene
Troupe; you will be amazed at the skill
of the Tan Kwai Chinese Troupe, who
will perform from the top of the grand
stand to the infield; you will have to
hold your sides when you see the comic
antics of Fink's mules. In the after
noon you will see the best pacers and
trotters of the blue grass country con
test for the richest purses offered in the
Southland. In the evening you will see
the greatest horse show that has ever
been staged in this country. The day's
enjoyment will be brought to a close
with the most gorgeous pyrotechnic
display ever seen in the S,outh.
To the Public
I wish to state to the public that I
am still in the stock business and have
mules to rent. My character and bust
hess integrity is too well established
among hundreds of my business friends
to need defense. My character and nab
its of right were formed long ago and

to Pleasant Liv-Ver-Lax.
Physicians generally agree that the
nauseating, unpleasant effects of calo
mel are due to the undesirably violent
action it has on the system. For a long
while various substitutes have been tried,
but it was only recently that the really
wonderful remedy, Liv-Ver-Lax, was
prepared successfully by L. K. Grigsby.
Liv-Ver-Lax has all the good and
none of the bad effects of calomel. It
is a necessity in every home, always be

ant after effects.

P. & I. RAILROAD
BRIDGE BUILDING
Longest Simple Truss Span in the
' World.
n " One of the most important pieces
of railroad construction work now
In progress in this section is the
building of the Paducah & Illinois
Railroad's big bridge across the Ohio
River at Metropolis, 111., work upon
which has been progressing for
some months, and which will take
three years to complete. This
Structure will contain 19,o6o tons
of steel and will be 5,700 feet from
end to end, with a main channel
span of 720 feet, the longest simple
truss span of any railroad bridge in
the world. The piers will be found
ed 75 feet below the river bed, and
from the bottom of the main chan
nel pier to the top of the bridge span
will be 317 feet higher than a sky
scraper.
This work wil also require 90,000
yards of concrete in the construction
of the piers and pedestals for the
steel work of the approaches, and the
bridge floor will be 53 feet above
high water. It is said by bridge ex
perts that the machinery for the
erection of this bridge is the most
complete of any plant assembled In
the country. The caisson for two
piers have already been sunk and
work Is progressing 'night and day.
The P. & I. Railroad is arranging
to open its line from Palucah, Ky,
to Metropolis, 111., on Sept. 1. The
Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis
Railway and the ' Burlington rail
road, which form the P. & I., have
constructed inclines on the Illinois
and Kentucky side of the river for
the use of transfer boats during the
construction of the bridge, and in
addition the'N., C. & St. L. has Just
completed a twelve-mile extension to
the river for the connections of the
P. & I. with the N. & C. at Paducah
This new road will open and de
velop a splendid business between
the Northwest and the Southeast,
and eventually it means that five
trunk lines will use this bridge.

Same Old Story.
Another disaster!
They couldn't come faster,
Or so to the reader it seems.
Some more public fury,
A coroner's jury 1
And evidence taken in realms.
Much probing and fighting,
Some talk of indicting;
Inspectors arrive by the score.
And what is the finish?
Their efforts diminish
And things go along as before.

But really there's little else left.
