Ueneiil"t, THE CIRCUS TENT UP Knott's Perfected Show nro in Keliearsal. SATURDAY, AUGUST 30 THE DATE. Auurotjatloii of Wonderful FcntM mid AmuIiig Novelties. The big circus tent anil all the Mile- show tents belonging to the Will J. Knott's Perfected Shows have leen pitched on the vacant lots east of the Melding block and will remain up un til after the big show next Saturday. Mr. Knott has been a very busy man for the past two weeks and it is doubt ful if Mr. Harnum in his" palmiest days ever hustled business in the show line with greater rapidity. His num erous wagons and advance carriages have been neatly painted and letter ed and the country all around this vicinity has been billed for the open ing show. This young showman exhibits many of the qualities of the famous l T. Harnum and It is not among the im possibilities that he will follow along in his footsteps. At present he has a force of 2o- people in his employ and more will be added as new features are demanded. The entire company are in re hearsal every day and undoubtedly this city will see a larger crowd of people next Saturday than has ever been here Don Wilson, Lavern I'arslow, Guy Beele and Art Daily are members of Mr. Knott's Kind and N. C Whitney of Chicago an experienced showman is his advance agent. HHAI TIFI'L IIAKVF.ST s F.U V If ' I'. t ( oiinreuntlonal Chureli, Hev. A. H Curtis (iiivc Serinoii.

A FnlrplnliiH Farmer "Write About It to the Haulier. While at the Good 1 loads convention at Greenville I heard Mr. Lapham of IJelding make the remark, he hoped to see the day when Holding and Greenville would be connected with good roads. Well that would be very nice Mr. Lapham, but would It not be much nicer for you to connect IJelding with Fairplains and the northeast with good roads so you could get the farmers trade and produce of that section than have it go to Greenville. I would sa3' yes, and so should Holding and now let mc Miggest the way I think advisable for the city of Hol ding to open a way for the farmers to get to your city, go north on Hridge street and cross the Cainc farm to county line road, then east to Nichols corner, then north in the farming country whore you want to get the farmers produce and trade. The far mers are willing to help make this road, and I have heard some of thoin say they would give from $25 to $5C to help build this road. There is gravel along this route to build a good road, If tho city of Holding wishes to got tho farmers produce and trade they must help make tho good roads or they vill take their produce to Green ville, where they have good roads and a city where they are willing to help make them. Yours truly IlKADKK OF Til K HANNKU. W. S. CANFIELD RETIRES From Management of the YV. s. Can field ( Oin pany. The W.

The time when fruit is plentiful being now at hand an annual caution regarding its use may be pertinent accordingly. A diet specialist makes this declaration on the subject. "The poorest time to eat fruit is at the conclusion of a hearty dinner, when a variety of other fruit has boon already consumed. Hat acid food in tho morning just before breakfast, taking with it a little bread and butter if the plain food is not acceptable. Cooked food may bo eaten at any time and much diges'ive disorder could be averted if this distinction were, ob served. Fruit is wholesome, accord ing to the same authority, only when it is in proper condition, ripe and fresh Its deserved good reputation has lieen much impaired by the influx In our markets of half-ripe and stale fruit which is alxmt the most un wholesome food that can bo eaten. In general fruit is less wholesome when eaten out of its natural season." in tin: pahk. Dan s. Hoot Pot and YV. II. C. Held IMctilr. The old soldier veterans of Dan S. Itoot Post (J. A.
