After the Salem band rendered pleas

quested the audience to stand up He
then called upon Kev Dr. Creasy, who
offered an earnest prayer.
Hon. Clement Manly, in luting
words introduced Col. J. S. Carr, who
was the first speaker.
In opening bis speech, which proved
an eloquent and classical, and yet
practical effort. Col Carr said :
".Paul, the apostle to the lien tiles,
making his defense before King

methods of those who try, in defiance
of explicit statutes, to shut off compe

the army, but l deem it a fearful sign

The speaker then referred m very
complimentary terms to the loaugura

ing in part:
"May this magnificent display of
your handicraft, which challenges ad
miration, stimulate all those who,
like the Queen of Sheba, come to in

may the harvest be such a lesson, in
industrial progress, that all over
North Carolina brains will set on -41 re
with a desire to develop and promote
the material Interest or the state.
Col. Carr dwelt at length upon the
importance of harmony of thought
and action between residents of city
and country, opening up a line of
thought worthy of serious considera
In conclusion, the speaker said:

The sale at Brown's ma not close

warehousemen and auctioneers at
tended the sale.
The Last Day Proved the Biggest and
the Best of All.
Friday marked the close of Win
ston's grand, glorious and successful
Tobacco Fair.
Tbe day was a molel one. The
weather was spring-like and every
body appeared to be happy. '
The number of visitors was larger
than on the opening day. Many esti
mate that no less than 15,000 people
were here, besides our own people.
Our country friends began to arrive
early. Farmers' Warehouse - was
thronged with admiring crowds all
Three hundred girls from the State
Normal arrived here on a special train -at
9:30 in tbe morning. They were ac
companied by President Mclver and
the members of tbe faculty.
Winston-Salem was proud of Dr
Mclver and bis College girls. As they
marched up from tbe depot they at
tracted much attention and received
many handsome compliments.
At 2 o'clock in the afternoon the Pres
ident and his girls went down to tbe
old Moravian church, which was built
in 1800, and beard a brief and inter
esting history of the old house of wor
ship, given by Bishop Rondthaler.
From there they went to tbe Acade
my chapel where a complimentary re
cital was tendered them by the facul
ty and pupils of the tsalem school. Tbe
visitors were then taken In charge and
shown through tbe buildings and
Like everything else connected with
the big Fair, tbe Bicycle parade in tbe
morning was a brilliant success
It hid been eagerly anticipated and
thousands of persons gathered along
tbe line of march to witness it.
- It was the largest and most elabor
ate and most beautifiil event of its
character that has ever transpired in
the State and much credit is due Prof.
D H Blair and bis faithful assistants
for the admirable manner in which
everything connected with it was
managed, and great praise Is due the
bicycle riders, ladies, gentlemen, boys
and girls, for the loyal and enthusias-
tic support rendered the manage- j
uient. (
There were a hundred or more
wheels in the procession and a large
number of them were exquisitely deco
rated and some were masterpieces of
lovely and unique designs. Servingas
decorations were white and yellow
chrysanthemums, ribbons, laces, bunt
ing, fl-igs, butterflies, tobacco leaves,
plug tobacco, etc.. and as an entirely
the parade was a grand and inspiring
scne and won t he plandits of tbe ad
miring multitude.
Some of the decorations, of course,
deserve special mention, but if we
should enter upon this delicate task
it would be difficult to tell iust where
to draw the line of special mention.
Hence we will let the judges say who
are entitled to tbe highest honors.
The procession formed on Cherry
street, near Fourth, and moved down
Cherry street and return: out Fourth j
to nuiiiuin; our, summit to r 111 11;
down Fifth to Liberty; around Court- j

The rear of the Bicycle Parade was
brought up by a buggv, drawn hy two
pretty p inies, driven in tandem styl.
In the huggy were seated a lady and

The Charming Play Presented at tbe
One of the most delightful features
of-our gala week was the presentation
of "The Diplomats" at the Armory
Wednesday night by the Winston
Dramatic club, aided by Miss Lillian
Staples, of Greensboro.
Tbis performance was one of the
special attractions arranged under the
direction of tbe Tobacco Fair Associa
tion for the interest and pleasure of
our visitors and there was no price
for admission.
The tickets distributed under the
direction of the Association were
eagerly sought after and the armory
was filled to overflowing.
The play was one of the best ever
presented in Winston either by am
eteurs or professionals and the acting
was superb.
Dr. Summers immortalized himself
in the character of "Timothy Chad
wick the retired farmer," and Mrs J.
B Douglass, as the "Farmer's Daugh

Blair made a superb Spinks Fi'z Joce
lyn's valet but when it became
necessary for him- to change charac
ters with his master, be was a com
manding Diplomat in a twinkling.
Tbe Count,- the title r le, being
played by Mr. Peter Gorrell, placed
tbis popular young Winstoolan in
direct line to stage royalty. He did
it well.
Kitty, the maid, could not have
been improved on if it bad been writ
ten specially for Miss Lilla Young.
She actedKitty perfectly. All tbese
characters were splendidly portrayed.
So was tbe Baron and Major by
Messrs. By num. Glenn and Wingfteld
Young. .
But the star of the evening, as well
as of tbe play, was Miss Lillian
Staples, of tbe Greensboro Dramatic
Club. Miss Staples is an elocutionist
wearing honors fro to St. Mary's and
from tbe Boston Conservatory. She
has beauty and those charming graces
that make her seem perfectly at home

as puzzling. The Professor
was well received.

several selections to the delight of
the big crowd The first number was
"All Coons Look Alike to Me," the
second, "A Hot Time in the Old Town
Tonight." He changed the words to
the chorus in rendering the last verse
and said: "There'll be a Hot Time in
Winston Tonight."
Mr. Burton Barbee, of this city.
son of tbe late G W Barbee. gave a
number of contortion acts that were
remarkable He doubled himself iu
nearly every conceivable shaps, turned

wire and performed several remarka
ble feats, among which were going
through a whoop, beating a kettle
drum, removing his coat, etc , while
standing on a wire.
Mr Conley here sang another amus
ing selection entitled "Little Darkey
Pi ceie " He also recited a pleasing
little story about the Irish woman
that went to a dentist.
Tbe last number on the program
was an apple eating contest between
five negro boys and it brought down
tbe house. A small rope was stretch
ed across the stage to which were tied
Ave apples, one- for each, contestant

lie Writes About Our Big Tobacco
Th Durham Sun of Oct. 3 contained
'editorial correspondence" from Edi

big Fair.
After referring to tbe days when he
was "one of us," etc., be speaks of tbe
Exposition as follows: '
'The result of the efforts of these
Wlnstonians and Salemites is truly
creditable and satisfactory. The city
for it is all one is arrayed in flying
colors' and bunting regal robes of
splendor and magnificence. It rivals
tbe unique Durham exposition of
188S. It can be safely said that never
before, since tbe great 4tb of July
celebration, in the '70s, and so cele
brated for their uniqueness and gor-
geousness. has Winston Salem, with
their natural beauties and untiring
energy, won tbe admiration of visl
tors and strangers nor looked fairer
or more inviting, and the large crowds
who are so fortunate to find entertain
ment within tbe limits of these stir
ring towns will carry away with them
none but the'pleasantest recollections
of their stay and cannot fail to be
most favorably impressed with the
pieasing attractions which greet them
at every step, and in the Tobacco
Fair wbicb is the most unique thing
of tbe kind ever held in the State."

his man when he got off the train,
though Mr. Fulk was at the depot
looking for Mr. Worth Tbe latter
