The W'eWoii fiiir tins m!uo nnd gone.
It was a romnrkiible nicct'sji in every
particular, us all ilu preucctssois huvo

oryiliio' passed off soionthly nnd iio
UBtowiiid eiruuuistanoo occurred to mar
the pleasure und enjoymcDt of visitors
Tliere was n good crowd on Wednes
day and on Thursday, tho big day of tbo
week, tho grounds were tilled with the
people who had come from far and near
to take in the fair.
Tho j'rounJ.'j prcsontnd a gala appear
ance truly. The many tents, fligs, music,
horse races, well mounted uiarabals,
handsome women, all tended to mako a
spectacle well calculated to please and
entertain the people.
Tbe cadets from the Scotland Neck
Military School presented a handsome
appearance under tho command of Major
Barraud, and attracted much attention.
They were especially . complimented for
their accurate drill, (puck and successful
e."iecutioti of orders and the perfect exe
cution of the manual in marching order
as well as at attention. Tho drill and man
ual would have done credit to any compa
ny of the State Guard, and shows the
excellent training they have had in a
comparatively short time.
There were many things on the grounds
which we would like to notice at length,
blit tho demand on our space forbids. We
must, however, mention some of them,
and will take them consecutively by de
Among articles on exhibition in this
department were seed cotton, potatoes
and navy beans by Mrs. Ida W ilkins; po
tatoes and cotton by John D. Shaw; po
tatoes by Sirs. C. 1‘. Rodwcll; tobacco
peas and seed cotton by J. U. Wood; J.
A. Johubtun, bread corn, stock corn aud
Ill this deparuuent, which is devoted
to horses and stock, we noted many hand-
eome entries, among them tho following
attracted tho most attention for their
maiiy excelledt paints:
T. y. Lippett, saddle horse, J. T,
Evans, single harness horse and two-year-
old not thoroughbred; J, H. Summerell,
Northampton, stallion, not thoroughbred;
T. H. Taylor, pair carriage horses; J. W
Thornton, stallion and single harness
horse; J. B. Cox, Tryon City, 2 single
harness horses; S. D. Black, Raleigh,
thoroughbred stallion, stallioo not thor
oughbred, single harnese horse; W. K.
Miller, Rocky Mount, two- stallions not
thoroughbreds and single harnesa horse;
M. Wilson, Littleton, stallion, not thor
oughbred; J. H. Wood, light draft horse;
A. Merrifield, Durham, two-year-old
colt not thoroughbred; Qeo.igo Uarrigon,
This department for domestic animals
was well filled, and tbe show in it would
do credit to any fair. Among the most
prominent entries were the following: 0.
P. Keeter, Jersey bull, game chickens;
T. A. Cooper, Brahma chickens, Toulouse
aud Spanish geese; J. W.’Vinoent, Gas
ton, native bull; Mn. J. T. Evans, Wyan
dotte chickens, Ayleibury, Pekin and
Rouen ducki; E. M. Perkina, Bonen
ducks; W. S. Hdldford, Betkahire pigs,
bogs, black Laogihtn chiokeni, Mn. C.
P. Bodwell, wjandottes, W. K. Pittman,
geme cfiickens; J. H. Wood, white tur-
keyi, domestic turkeys and fat bogs; S.

Dopartinent D includes fancy work
both in wearing apparel and in ueml
things to eat, and if there was any one
at tho I'uir whose I'ancy could not be tick,
led by the nuuictous things on exhibition
wl)ich attracted the eye and the appelite
we don’t want to see him. It would
seeiu a little incongruous to 'jroup eili-
hies and “wearahles" tiigether, but it
must 1)0 remenihcred that some go inside
and .some (int.oido and ho really there is
but a skin’s difrorence ulier all. If we
get them a little mixed this tnorning wo
hope we will be pardoned as there is al
ways eon.siderablo mixing fair week. For
in.staiiooon looking over our notes we
fuund we had written “one embroidered
child’s cloak.” Now nobody wants an
embroidered child, leastways nobody in
this section has one that we know of.
If there is nny child of the kind she
ought to have been on exhibition so it
could have been told what kind of a stitch
it was—whether satin .stitch, c“t stitch
or stitch in tho side. We say “she” be
cause lio boy child would bo embroidered
if he could help it.
Thoro was in this department hand
some exhibits by Miss Mary A Collins,
Norfolk; Mrs Geo Lehman, Mies A Hives
Norfolk; Miss Kebeeca Hardwick, Kich-
mond; Mrs L L Marks and Miss Mollic

Mrs P N Stainback, Mrs R C Freeman,
Goldsboro; Miss Annie Pierce, Mrs L F
Tillery, Mrs W T Shaw. Mrs R W
Brown had forty articles on cxhibiti m.
They were all for table use, lighte.iit bread
and biscuit, beautiful cake ol' every kind,
dried fruits, pepper, jelly, canned fruits,
eatsnji, vegetable.^, garden seeds. Her
exhibit was a fair in itself and did great
credit to Mrs Brown’s already well known
housewifely qualities. It would have
made a dead man hungry to have gotten
a glimpse at all these good things. Then
there was Mrs J T Evans’ large and
beautiful exhibit of ueedlo work, which
would adorn a New York bazar. Mrs
J L Williams showed great skill in the
preparation of her exhibit of table prod
ucts. A largo quantity of fancy work,
was made by Trinity Church sowing so
ciety, Scotland Neck, some of which, we
are sorry to say, was damaged by tho
rain Thursday night which was beaten
into the building by the wind. There
were several beautiful hats also on exhi
bition, but tbe palm was awarded to Miss
Bean who is now with Mrs P A Lewis.
Mrs W E Daniel’s exhibit added very
"lordly to the success and beauty of Floral
Hall and was really handsome and well
selected. Mrs. W. II. Smith showed
lovely taste in the articles sent out by her
and they displayed great artistic merit.
Mrs R C Freeman, of Goldsboro, had
fifty-one articles ou esbibition which
attracted tbc attention of everyone for
excellence and the skill shown in prepar
ing them. There were many other beau
tiful things on exhibition in this depart
ment which we would be glad to mention
apeeiall; but space forbids. We only had
room to notio9 the larg^ exhibits.
The art department was more than
usually attractive. There were many ex-
cellent specimens of handiwork which
would have been « crijdit to those who
have attained hi^ii piMition as ptul'e.-Miun
al artists. We are diffident of out judg
ment in art, because wa cannot bo artists, for tbo farmers thoro were not as luanj'
and try not to he artful, hut we will give
nn artless opinion on some of tho works
of art which wc saw in floral hall, any
way. If we miss anything whioh should
njt have been mi.-ised, it was our niisl’or-
tuno rather than fault. With this jire-
ludo we will enumerate: First there was
the exhibit of the Henderson College.
Mrs. B. B. Phillips, who was at one
tiiiio a resident of this place, principal.
There was a screen done in oils lovely
to look upon. U is the work ofayouog
lady, Jlrs. Philips' daughter, who is only
Ht'Vontoi'U year.-i old. When this J'oung
lady was only lilteea years old she se
cured a scholarship in Vassar College by
a competitive examination. Tho Ktndy
in poppies is also by her and seeme 1 to tho
critical tho perfection of art. The frama
of tlio acroeu is a beautiful specimen of
North Carolina wood and was made in
Henderson. Tho crayons are tho work
of two other students o!’ the college, each
under thirteen years of age. They have
received no other io.struetiou than that
given in free hand drawing gratis, by the
college. Tho water color sketches and
meohanical drawings were most excellent
and will be exhibited at the World’s fair.
These specimens of what Henderson col
lege nocomplishes in tho way of education
ought to make that institution very pop
ular with parents.
Among other exhibits in this depart
ment which roccived high praise wore
paper flowers, fancy drawing, fancy writ
ing by Mrs. A. P. Rives, Norfolk;
panels in water colors and in oil and
etebing, by Miss Janie Ward, Raleigh;

In department F there were many
agricultural uui uihor i:u|>)ements, most
of which were included in the exhibit of
S. R. White & Bi-.. Norf.l.., aua uiaau
a handsome and attractive appearance.
There was also a peanut puller by B L

entries as there should Ii.ivabmi. Ilor
ticultural products ought to receive more
attention from the farmers, and they
should diversify their crops, thereby be
coming more independent. Tho exhibits
showed what could he done in this way,
if proper efl'ort woro luado, and we hope
that great improvement will be made in
this section in this leepcet by tho opening
of the fair next fall

Drew Stephenson, Mrs II W lirowu, W
II Holford, Mrs J L Williams, Jihu

Harris, J H Wood, Mi.sa Annie Pierce
tnd Garrett & Co.
Among the most attractive disphns
in tbo building was that of Mi -srs. Gar
rett & Co., which deeoratari the firat
floor of Floral Hall. It contained native
wines of various kind.s tastefully arranged,
to show the many good qualiiies of their
several vintages. Their scuppcrnongs,
Catawba, blackberry etc., were especially
admired by visitors. The firm is now
doing a large business, and ha- ■ recently
enlarged their plant hero cons. : rably.
THE HOP AND QEtlMA:
The hop at tho Coast Liuo II '1 Wed
nesday night Tas well lUended

all who attended. But the soci d event
of the week was the grand German

music was the very best that could be
procured, and that means everything-
The costumes worn by the ladies on this
occasion were particularly handsome. We
recall some, and if any are omitted or
any mistakes are made in doscriptions

bewildered? We notice tbe following:
