Farmers Cop Prises.
The white soil section of Cleve
land county between Shelby and
[ Kings Mountain captured two of the
1 mast coveted prizes in the agricul
; tural hall at the county fair. The
fair spirit prevails in that section
of the county where the Bethlehem
community fair was held for a num
ber of years and the people plant
and plan in advance in older to
show the very best products.
Bethlehem Booth Wins.
Bethlehem community booth won
first prize for booths and Mr.
George Goforth took first honors
for the best individual farm ex
hibit Mr. Goforth is about 15 years
of age and selected his seed in the
early spring in older that he might
have a creditable exhibit. This is
the first time he has entered so

The Antiques Good.
Entering the building from the
south, The Star's gaze first feil
vpon the arts and crafts depart
ment. The entries are not as many
as heretofore in some cases, but
there is a greater variety. Anti
ques are very interesting, displayed
around a huge old-fashioned, opoa
fire place as before. Here are dis
played old English china and brass
and early American china and
brass. The judge Mr Hawks of
Asheville who ns somewhat of an
authority on antiques was pa-tlci.-'

Kings Mountain School Wins.
The school booth representing
consolidated schools of the county
is another interesting sight. Across
the front the eight months school
term in all rural sections is urged.
In one comer is a map of the
county, showing all roads, schools
and streams. Kings Mouniai-i
won sweepstakes on all school pro
ject work, the project in science
being declared exceptionally good
by the judges.
First prize for the most attractive
sign was awarded to the Cleveland
county consolidated school bootn
where the Grover school had spell
ed in huge letters made from school
supplies, the words “Cleveland Con
solidated schools”. The First Na
tional bank won second on signs
and the pantry department third in
Most Attractive Dooms.
Prizes were given for the most at
tractive booths in both the exhibit
and the manufacturers buildings. In
the exhibit building Bethlehem
won first, the consolidated schools
second. Boiling Springs third, wo
man's club projects fourth. In the
manufacturers building the Atwater
Kent radio display by the Mauney
Auto Parts Co., won first, First Na
tional bank second. Oldsmobile sold
by Haw-kins Brothers third and I.
G. Watson tin shop fourth.
Never has there been seen at a
county fair such an array of beau
tiful flowers and greenery. One solid
corner in the exhibit building is
filled with plants.
Ample Corn and Hay.
Boyd Harrelson in charge of the
field crops declares the corn exhibit
this year has had no equal. There
is three times as much as last year
and the display is much more at
tractive. In spite of the insect dam
age, frost, etc., the fruits and veg
etables are very creditable. The
beautiful display of Niagara and
seedless grapes grown by Dr. E. W.
Gibbs of Shelby occupied their usual
place in the center of the display.
Dr. Gibbs is considered an expert
in grape culture and always wins
first in this class.
A special building will be neces
sary to house the hay entries if
they continue to grow' and improve
as they have this year, says Mr.
Harrelson. All of the exhibits sucn
as garden truck, field crops, hays,
cotton, etc., occupy the center aisle
and are well above the average.
f ine Housekeepers.
"There were never such house
keepers as are found in the Bethle

thority as she looked on the Beth

is personified in every article," she
added. The handwork this year is
of a more practical value and of a
Canned fruits. Why with such t
poor fruit year, one would think
this exhibit would be flat, but the

They have borrowed, bought beg

to make a wonderful exhibit in
