Tinest Agricultural Exhibit, Fine
Stock and Fine Fair.
The" fair opened here Wednesday
with an unusually large attendance
on the opening day. It would not
be right to say that the present fair
Is the' largest 'in the number of ex
hibits and entries, but what is lack
ing in quantity is showing in quali
ty. What we can say with a great
deal of pride and pleasure is that
the agricultural exhibit is the only
real, genuine agricultural show ever
seen in the county. At the first
meeting of the present organization,
a street fair, the agricultural dis
play was very fine, but the present
exhibit is incomparably the largest
and best. The credit for this of
course belongs to our friend, Mr. A.
Harris. In the agricultural depart
ment can be seen almost a complete
replica of Mr. Harris exhibit at
Memphis last year, but with 1915
produce. All thru the department is
to be seen the finest specimens of
corn, wheat, rye, grasses, vegetables,
fruits, etc.
The garden and farm displays are
in every way better and more at
tractive. Mr. Herman Dietzel, Jr.,
and Mr. Ike Wade have farm dis
plays and they are in a class entire
ly in advance of the old displays
seen here. The garden displays of
J. D. McBride and W. M. Walker are
also fine. These exhibits are worth
coming to the fair to see. Nothing
like them has ever been seen here
before. But all the way thru the
department the exhibits are unus
ually fine. Mr. Tom Massey is as
sisting Mr. Harris.
The Woman's Building shows a
smaller number of entries than at
some of the former meetings, but no
finer exhibits were ever seen here.
This department, always popular, is
just as attractive as ever, and the
ladies are indeed well pleased.
The track entries are large and
some of the best trotting and pacing
talent is on the ground. Mrs. J. T.
Landry is here with her race ostrich,
Blitzen, and her Arabian horse, Dun
ner. The race takes place every day.
Mrs. Landry has also entered a num
ber of good horses, and the amuse
ments, including the Ferris wheel
and the merry-go-round, and the
street shows, are getting a liberal
patronage. The fair starts fine and
bids fair to wind up a great success.

Advice of Mother no Doubt Pre
vents Daughter's Untimely End.
Ready, Ky. " I was not able to do
anything for nearly six months," writes
Mrs. Laura Bratcher, of this place, "and
was down in bed for three months.
I cannot tell you how I suffered with
my head, and with nervousness and
womanly troubles.
Our family doctor told my husband he
could not do me any good, and he had
to give it up. We tried another doctor,
but he did not help me.
At last, my mother advised me to take
Cardui, the woman's tonic. 1 thought
it i was no use for I was nearly dead and
nothing seemed to do me any good. But
1 took eleven bottles, and now 1 am able
to do all of my work and my own
I think Cardui is the best medicine in
the world. My weight has increased,
and I look the picture of health. "
If you suffer from any of the ailments
peculiar to women, get a bottle of Cardui
today. Delay is dangerous. We know
it will help you, for it has helped so
many thousands of other weak women
in the past 50 years.

Better stock in beef and dairy cattle is the cry and the need of the Boat.
If the stock on most of the Southern farms approached the class shown above,
this country would be wealthier than any empire in the world. The Jersey
shown here won first honors at the Tri-State Fair at Memphis last year. The
fair opens this year September 26th. and will last ten days, and indications are
that the number of head of stock on the grounds will be almost halt again ai
many as last year. . .
given the fair association by the reg
istry associations, Secretary Frank
Fuller has announced that over $16V
000 will be offered this year In live
stock premiums alone.
Agriculture will also be keynote

ways brought forth the hottest kind of
a race, and this year, owing to the
wider variety being grown, this com
petition will be even more keen.

firm believers in the axiom, "Some

Tri-State Fair Will Give Premiums to
Fancy Steppers.
During the first four nights of the
Tri-State Fair, which opens at Mem
phis September 26, a Horse Show, at
which attractive premiums will , be
awarded fancy steppers, promises to
be one of the very Interesting fev
tares. ' ' -

arouse admiration, and when to this
is added the further beauty of a grace

The fair has done much to encom
age the breeding of better horses, and
the fruits of some of its work will be
shown this year. ' ,
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

them in a steel cage while .the judges
