Greene County Fair
Notes on
a Success-
Work Accomplished
Today wag devoted to the schools
of the county, and had there been a
heart of stone in the great crowds
that witnessed the parade, that heart
would have been melted or else been
fit for the stone heap.
There must have been five thou
sand people on the streets with fully
balf of them from the different
schools. So well were the gchools
represented, that it was necessary to
for mlines not only at the high school
building but at the grammar school
building, then in marching the two
lines met and passed in opposite direc
tions, the. effect of which was beau
tiful as well as inspiring.
Banners addressed to the county
court asking for more, money .for
schools, more buildings, more teach
ers and that a chance be given every
girl and boy to attend school, were
carried by some of the schools.
All along the line of march, when
the children of the Orphanage came
in sight, it was the signal for waving
and hand-clapping. We sew tears in
the eyes of some. Perhaps they saw
in their mind's eye the lives from
which some of these dear children had
been rescued and put on the road to
useful citizenship by th's great insti
Mr. Wyser, the superintendent of
the Orphanage, brought up the rear
of his big family with a pony and
cart, the little vehicle filled with the
wee tots. This little crowd, too, wore
the smile that betokened the love and
attention they were getting every day
of their little lives. 7
Probably no single event of this
splendid fair will do more good, last
ing good, to the community and coun
ty in general that this "School Meet,"
which was so ably handled by the men
and women who worked so hard to
make it a success. . " i;
After the parade, Mr. Harry Clark,
of the University of Tennessee,
Knoxville, made a stirripg. address in
behalf of education.
When the faculty and student body
of Tusculum passed in the parade, we
felt like lifting our hats and breath
ing a prayer that God would bless
that grand old institution There
they came, every one with a smile,
from faculty back to the last stu
dent; and why shouldn't they? One
hundred and twenty-five years of ser
vice with honor is enough to bring a
perpetual smile on the faces of these
present-day workers, and ' on our
faces, too.
Two gentlemen from Knoxville
stood in front of the fruit department.
They were arguing the question 'as
to whether those fine apples, and
peaches were actually raised here in
Greene county or not. They had
just about decided that they had not
when Francis Harrison hove in sight,
and they were soon convinced that
they were not only raised here in
three or four different orchards, but
that there were many orchards in the
county capable of producing as fine
fruit as any seen there. They re
marked, "We didn't know you could
As usual, the Red Cross come to
the front. Some one remarked, "Per
haps our soldier boys have seen so
much of the Red Cross that they have
grown weary of it," but to this they
gave answer, "No; a thousand times,
no,' in their eagerness to reach the
Red Cross booth and enjoy the splen

good people of the county from the
different Red Cross organization.
The Junior Red Cross boqth was lib
erally patronized by all. Here the
children from the different junior
organizations contributed things to,

for everything. ,Mr. H. R. Meade
contributed largely to the financial
success of this booth by letting the
ladies in charge sell his 'fruit juices
exclusively, and at the same time
gave pleasure to all who enjoyed his
The fair was a success from start

As many of our patrons doubtless have already ob
served The Daily Sun has been enlarged from day to
day, to eight pages. We have done this at a disad
vantage until our new press arrives which has been
delayed. After which we expect to continue The
Daily Sun as an eight-page seven-column newspaper.
This announcement was made some weeks ago, but
upon account of strikes, doubtless of which you are all
aware, we have been delayed in getting in our new
press. For this reason we are going to once more offer
the readers, patrons and friends of Greene County's
only daily newspaper The Daily Sun a chance to
secure the yearly subscription on Thursday, Friday or
Saturday of this week at the old price of $2.00 only.
This offer is good for either new or renewal subscrip
tions to The Daily Sun. We trust that as many as have
appreciated our efforts in giving Greeneville and
Greene County their first daily paper during the past
few years will appreciate this offer enough to take
advantage of it on at least one of the days mentioned
above. As we state,, positively, this is the last chance
they will have to secure the paper at this price.
