Description

Excerpt from List of Premiums and Rules and Regulations of the Forty-Second State Fair of North Carolina: To Be Held at Raleigh, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, October 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, and November 1, 1902 The policy of the progressive and liberal State Board of Agriculture, in placing fifteen hundred dollars as premiums for the direct encouragement of good farming, to be expended in the departments of Field Crops and Products, Stock and Horticulture, has enabled the Society to enrich the premium list, until it now presents to the farmers of North Carolina such an array of prizes as excels those of many States whose Fairs represent much greater Wealth and population than North Carolina enjoys. We invite you to come forward and do your part; take these premiums - they are for the North Carolinian who can show the best results of his toil. Attention is especially asked to the new premiums for the largest crops of cotton, corn and peas per acre, to the additional cash premiums offered for tobacco, wool, silk, and many other items. The Horticultural exhibit will be the finest collection of fruits ever shown in our State. The premiums have been made four-fold, and the display, under charge of Secretary T. K. Bruner, of the State Agricultural Department, will be a revelation of the riches of the fruit farms of our State. Many improvements have been made - the grand-stand has been remodeled in its lower story, and convenient dining-rooms arranged. The accommoda tions of stock have been increased, on account of the demand for the same. Ninety-four entries were made for the trials of speed in 1901, much exceed ing any former record, and the large purses offered this year will assure a still more brilliant record for this track. Programmes ready upon appii cation. The State institutions will make their very interesting display of the work of pupils and inmates. The Educational Department will be of special value in its relation to the great educational movement, led by the Governor, and its director will be Hon. J. Y. Joyner, the Superintendent of Public Instruction. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
