The marked attention this fair has been paying for the past few years to the development of the live stock industry in the South has done much to attract general attention to it* annual exhibitions. Each year since it* inception new classifica tions have been added to the live stock department, and the amount offered in cash prizes has been steadily increased. This year the fair is offering a total of $8,860.00 in cash prizes for cattle alone. Of this amount $1,820.00 has been.con tributed by the various national live stock associations. Never be fore has a Southern fair received such marked recognition from the This rceog register associations, nition haa been brought about by the proven value of thè Memphis Show to cattle breeders, and vir tually makes the Tri-State Fair the official Southern live stock show, just as the American Royal at Kan City is the official Western show and the International at Chi sas cago the official national show The prize* offered for cattle at) Memphi* will be distributed ak fol low*: Shorthorns, $1,820.00; Here ford*, $1,40Q,00; Aberdeen Angus, $1,100.00; Polled Durham*, $860; Red Poll*, $780; Jerseys, $980; Jloldsteins, $800; Gurnseys; $720; Southem . fod fat 8tee r8, $400.

A wide distribution ha* been made of the money for breeding «attle. Realizing that there is 1 oft gn but little difference in the qual Tty of the first, second and third prize winners, little .difference is made in the money value of these prizes, thé management believing that the honor of first prize is in it self sufficient, while the cash value Of second and third prizes will help to make up for the loss of the blue ribbon. For each breed there is also s Southern class, . competition in which is limited to Southern-owned cattle. This gives the Southern breeder, who may feel that his lack of experience in .preparing' cattle for show places Him at a disadvan tage in competing with Northern herds, an opportunity to meet on equal terms with his fellow South ern breeders, and carry off the hon ors, if he has the cattle with which to do it. Northern breeders, recognizing in Memphis the natural distribut ing center of the South's growing live stock industry, have already signified their intention of showing largely at the Tri-State Fair, and the fact that this Fair immediately follows the Illinois State Fair al Springfield, which is generally looked upon as the most important of the corn belt stock shows, and that shipping facilities and rate« from Springfield to Memphis are favorable, will also go far in as suring the promised size and qual ity of the Memphis show. Nature and circumstances have combined in giving the Tri-State Fair Show its commanding position for today.

While the management of the Tri-State Fair at Memphis, Sep tember 26 to October 3, has made no efforts to have a home-coming celebration, they have arranged for a number of special days in order that out-of-town visitors may ex pect to meet friends and relatives from other cities and from Other counties. In fact, most any day you go to this big fair and exposition there will be somebody from home, and, of course, that is going to be the most enjoyable thing of all, for, after you have taken in the sights, you can join those from home and have a quiet chat in the shade or in the grand stand. àoing to a big fair where nobody but strangers meet you is all right, but deep down in your hearts, it's the home people you care most for, and it will be those you will like most to be with. Beginning Tuesday of the fair, special efforts will be made to take care of those from Humboldt, and, if report* bear fruit, Humboldt is going there strong, all traveling on a special train.
