FUffl SHOWS 1
I READY FOR EVENT
Nat ; Outfit Bigger Than La t
Year. Fair Grounds Hustle
Today With Activity.
All was in readiness along the
big midway late Monday afternoon
for the opening Tuesday of what
promises to be Cleveland county’s
greatest fair. The 4Vat Reiss shows,
with its galaxy of sideshows and
riding devices, reached the city
early Sunday nror;i.'ng and conces
sion operators who will operate the
many booths and bazaars, with
their games of science and skill,
started pouring into the city Sat.
urday and were still arriving late
Monday. The concessions, as usual,
will be erected at i.he head of the
midway between the Nat ltciss at
tractions and the grandstand.
The Nat Reiss shows, making its
second bow to the amusement lov
ers of this section and patrons of
the Cleveland county fair, is con
siderably larger than last year and
every bit of the r dditional space
which Secretary ,1. S. Dorton had
set aside for the amusement zone
was filled. The train arrived from
Mount Airy, con.*ng over the
Southern, with two engines nulling
it. There are five more double
length railroad cars 'his year than
'•'st. The train was unloaded early
Sunday morning, the big wagons
. being parked al«ng Warren street
and overflowing through South
Morgan to Graham street. Only the
wagons containing the electrical
equipment and the cookhouse,
where the 860 carnival people eat,
were taken to the grounds Sunday
but after church hours Sunday
night a battery of trucks started
in on the hauling job and practi
cally all night the big wagons weiu
rumbling through the streets.
The fairgrounds Monday morn
ing was a beehive of activity. The
small army of workmen attached
to the Nat Reiss shows started at
daybreak erecting the tented the.v j
tics that will house’ the many
shows, and the mammoth riding
devices. The concession operators j
started the erection- of theii booths
a few hours after the Nat Reiss ,
workmen but it appeared at noon-'
that everything would be ready
hours and hours before the arrival
of Tuesday’s parade that launches ’
Cleveland county’s 1U2G exposition.*
There are many new shows on
the midway this year and among
the new riding devices will be
found the lley-Day, ride sensation
of the decade. There are said to be
only six of these rides in operation
all of them being on the larger
collective amusement organizations.
The ride has all the thrill of a
run-away automobile with the elc-1
nient of danger eliminated. The au
tos operate on a platform and the
cars spin around and around a cir
cular track blending th^ thrills of
many of the cider rides.

shows will take part in the big par

two nurses in charge and a driver
for the ambulance or invalid ear

| LATTIMORE COMMUNITY
FAIR IS A SUCCESS
; s'derable information in- recent
years on systematic farming from
Professor Taylor, a valued member
of Prof. Lawton Blanton's high
, school faculty. Which is to sav
that their exhibits not only con
j tained good material but were at
j tractively and tastefully displayed.
With the thought comes another.
It is that the Lattiniore High
school should be watched. Thi;
handiwork and ability of the
' young school children formed a
background for the occasion and
parents seemed even prouder of the
ribbons carried home by the young
sters than of their own prizes with
horses, fruit, and suchlike.
1 h"te were sidelights galore to
the day. J. B. Francis has his 7t
pound watermelon gnnwed away
by rodents, hilt'nevertheless he had
a 65-pound “August ham” in the
(fair which was good enough for
first prize. And to console himself
over the loss of his big melon he
carried home numerous other "first
prize ribbon^. Then the pumpkin
show was a “pippin.” Come cele
brity of i he past who, apparently,
knew ns much about eating as farm
ing, said “the section that has
plenty of pumpkins need never
worry about prices received for
other products for they are going
to live royally.” And that ^houtd
apply to Lattimore and the visita
tions of the army worm on the
cotton fields. The community h>d
enough delicacies to go with the
hams and pumpkins to feed them
over the year if cotton had to be
given away. The home economic do •
partment of the school is starting
out some young cooks and fancy
work artists that will give the'r
mothers a race for honors and the
farm department of the school is
turning out boys who can already
give their dads tips on the profes
sion of tilling the soil—though, the
dads may not admit it.
Fact is, those who didn’t attend
the fair here missed a representa
tive idea as to why Cleveland
county forges ahead In farm life.
From the kitchen to the pastures
and fields Lattimore was on dis
play at the fair, and there may
be better exhibits of this and that,
but the community that gets to
gether such a collection of every
thing will be hard to find.
The event covered too much to
be “covered” in detail from a news
paper standpoint, and it is suffi
cient to say that those who looked i
over the Lattimore community fair
can now understand why the big j
county fair is the state’s best—for
the big fair is merely an assem
blage cf many such communities, j
County celebrities were there
during the day and many of them
for the entire day, perhaps because
dinner is served at Lattimore at 12
o’clock sharp and usually lasts un- i
til one or better. County commi"- j
sioners, home and farm agents
and others were numbered on the
list. The report that they carried
away should bring double the num
ebr back next v«'r.

Seven Life Insurance Policies
All With Hie Pilot
HI Pilot MOUNTAIN NORTH CAROLINA 11L_
When earning power is cut off due to sick,
ness or accident, then the disability provision
on Pilot po’icies provides and income and pre
vent j^the irsurance from lapsing.
Last week, claims for the payment of disa
bility benefits under seven different policies, all
belonging to the same man, were approved at
the Pilot’s Home Office.
It is not at all unusual to find a man owning
a half dozen policies with the Pilot, and the fact
that such a large percentage of the Company’s
policyholders come back for additional insur
ance is perhaps the best proof of all that it does
pay to insure with the Pilot.
