Arrangements have been made with the Young Aeroplane Company of New York City to have Carl Mather, the World Famous Aviator, here during our Fair. Mather is considered one of the best High Flyers in the country and his stunts will make everyone sit up and take notice. Mather will do all the crazy stuff, and is said to be a treat when it comes to thrills that make your hair stand up. Mather's sensational flying is said to be wonderful. He has made many flying, trips in the big cities and everywhere he has flown he was considered one of the greatest Aviators ever known. An Exchange, from Atlanta, Ga., says that Mather made a thrilling llight over the city, going at the rate of sevepty miles an hour, he drove his machine through the clouds, which soon developed into a mist and rain and he was above the clouds by this time, he became lost and in trying to get back to the field, found himself several miles away. Undaunted by his experience, Mather turned his machine and headed for the city again and could be seen coming out of the clouds in an altogether, different direction from where he disappeared. He was wet when he landed and said that he had had some experience.He was in the air just 35 minutes. The above is only a sample of the many daring stunts that Aviator Mather performs. Mather is described as being a modest young man, and is said to look like a North Carolina native. There ar j eleven Aviators with the Young Aeroplane Company but Mather is said to be one of the most clever of the bunch. Be sure and ccme to THE JOHNSTON COUNTY FAIR and see the loop the loop and Bombs dropped on Smithfield by the famous Aviator. 1T0 MAKE LIFE'S WALK EASY \vc wcr.r Hunt Club Shoos.
