' A Bit Of Ittstory
The first national corn show was
held in Chicago in 1007 under the aus
pices of the business men of Chicago.
This brought together large exhibits
of corn and grain and was deemed
worth while. At that time a national
corn association was organized and
took up the matter of holding nation
al corn shows. The next shows were
held at Omaha in 1008 and 1909. The
show was then moved to Columbus,
Ohio, in 1911. The next natonal corn
exposition was held at Columbia, S.
C, in 1913. The exposition then went
to Dallas, Texas, in February, 1914.
Since that time no national corn show
has been held. It was found that corn
and grain interests appreciated the
show and made large and worth while
exhibits. On the other hand, it was
not possible to get a sufficient number
of people attend the shows to warrant
the holding of the same, or to finance
them in the proper way. For this rea
son they were discontinued.
It has been the feeling of a great
many years that a corn and grain
show could be held in connection with
the International Live Stock Exposi
tion. The live stock business is found
ed upon the grain and hay crop of the
country. Live stock men are interest
ed in the development of grain and
forage crops. Since these two inter
ests work hand in hand, there is every
reason why they should be joined and
Dean C. F. Curtis was elected pres
ident of the International Live Stock
Exposition Association this past year
and at once proceeded to arrange for
and International Grain and Hay show
He approached the Chicago Board of
Trade, wh!ch body agreed to contri
bute $10,000 in cash premiums. With
this, as 4 bais, the live stocks man
agement agreed to meet the overhead
expense. AH Is now under way and
there are big prospects for a fine dis
play. In addition to competitive ex
hibits, there will be a large number
of educational exhibits at the master
show, to be held in Chicago from No
vember 29th to December Cth.
A Line or Two
(By O. Jay)
A patient at an insane asylum was
pushing a wheelbarrow around thi
yard upside down. A visitor watched
him for some time, then asked, "Why
don't you turn it the right way?" The
insane man laughed, "I did, one night
and somebody put bricks in it." A
lot of merchants have a newspaper,
that reaches a good percentage of the
population. It's business is to carry
your message, or advertisement; to
let people know what you have to
sell. Haven't you been pushing the
wheelbarrow upside down about long
