The Premium List of the Nortli Carohna Agricultural Society for 1893 is issued too early to contain announcements of the special attrac-tions which will be secured for tlie jileasure and entertainment of the people of the State during their great annual reunion at the State Fair; but assurances are liere given that the week's programme will include many interesting and amusing features. The people may arrange to visit the State Fair of 1898 with every assurance that everything possi-ble will be done for their convenience, entertainment and pleasure. Particulars of attractions, etc.. will lie given through the State press in due time. PUBLICITY. The Society will, in future, undertake to give publicity to the success of exhibitors at the State Fair. Takers of premiums will be given as much public credit as practicable. It is proposed to secure good pictures of horses, cattle, etc, that may be awarded premiums, and the publica-tion of same, witli full description, pedigree, history, etc., made in some widely circulated paper. RACES. The large and increasing interest in the development of harness and trotting horses in the State now insures the possibility of having a large field of fine and speedy horses on the race circuit this year, and the Society will seek to eclipse all former efforts in this department. Classes, programmes and purses will lie announced about August 15. RAILROAD SCHEDULES. Railroad schedules and rates will be the best that the railroads can arrange. Their courtesy this year, as was the case last year, will be limited only by the possibilities. ILLUSTRATIONS. The illustrations in this issue of the Premium List are used by courtesy of the State Board of Agriculture. REGULATIONS. I. The gates will be open for the admission of visitors at 10 o'clock a. m. each day. and close at 6 p. ii. II. Every reasonable effort will be made by the officers of the Society and those in charge of the grounds to protect the property on exhibition from loss or damage, but the Society wiU not hold itself responsible should loss or damage occur. III. All articles which are the product of the soil must be entered in the name of the producer. Those showing handiwork or skill must be entered in the name of the one whose skill they exhibit. Such may be individuals, firms or factories. They must have been made within three }"ears. and not exhibited at any former Fair of this Society. All other property must be entered in the name of the actual owxer. Any violation of this rule will bar the violator from competing for any pre-mium whatever, and render him and his exhibit liable to expulsion from the grounds. IV. Should any person misrepresent his exhibit, and a premium be awarded upon it, such premium may be withheld by the Executive Committee. V. Drunkenness, quarreling, or the use of profane or obscene language, also gambling, pool-selling, or other games of chance, will not be allowed on the grounds : nor fireworks, petroleum, gunpowder, or any other objectionable or dangerous materials whatever. VI. The Executive Committee reserves the right to withhold pre-miums in any case in which it shall appear to tliem that the regulations have not been complied with, or that fraud or deception has been prac-ticed or attempted. VII. No person shall act as superintendent or on any awarding com-mittee in any department in which he is an exhibitor. VIII. Tickets fui"nished exhibitors will be good for themselves only, and those attempting to transfer them will forfeit the same and be com-pelled to buy others before entering the grounds. The same rule will be enforced with reference to all other tickets. IX. The prices of admission will be as follows: Single ticket, each day __ $ 50 Children under twelve years, each day 25 Carriages of visitors, with driver, eacli 50 One-hnrse carriage and driver, per week 3 00 Two-horse carriage and driver, per week 5 00 X. Each department will be under the special charge of one member of the Executive Committee, who shall be known as the Director of that department. He will oversee the arrangement of all articles offered for 4 REGULATIONS. exhibition in his department, and have control of the space assigned to it. He will be assisted in his duties by a special superintendent, who will receive all exhibits, take personal charge of them, countersign the exhibitors' coupons, and deliver the articles on the surrender of the coun-tersigned coupons at the close of the Fair. XI. The Director in charge and the Special Superintendent shall attend the Judges when making the examinations in their respective depart-ments, and furnisli them witli all re([uired information. Premiums will not be paid to parties having exhibits where it is proven that they accompanied the Judges when awarding the premiums. The awards, when completed, shall be signed by the Judge, and also by the Director, who will take charge of the book and return it to the Secretary. As the awards are made, the Director or his Superintendent will attach the ribbon indicating the award. XII. Should any of the Judges previously selected fail to be present, the Director of each department is authorized to select others to fill the vacancies, always endeavoring to select persons duly qualified by their pursuits or experience to make correct awards in each special depart-ment. In all cases, the Judges, before awarding any premium, will be careful to see that the requirements of the Premium List have been strictly complied with by the exliiliitor. XIII. The entry-books will he open at the office of the Secretary of the Society, in the new Opera-House in the city of Raleigh, from September 15 to and including the Friday next before Fair Week, and at the Secre-tary's office at the Fair Grounds on Saturday and until 13 o'clock noon on Monday, when all entries will positively close. Much trouble and annoyance may be avoided by compliance with this regulation, XIV. Entries may be made in person or by letter. In making entries it will be necessary to give the name of the article, the name and post-office address of the exhibitor, and the premium number under which the article entered is to compete This is especially necessary in order that the article may be properly entered. No entry fee for articles exhibited will be required. XV. Each exhibitor will be furnished with a tag for each entry, having a coupon attached, which he will carefully fasten to his exhibit, and, taking it to the department to which it belongs, will be assigned space by the Superintendent of that department, who will see that it is prop-erly displayed. Detaching the coupon, will countersign it and return it to the exhibitor. XVI. No article or animal will be entitled to space until the proper entry has been made. After an article or animal has been entered for a premium, it cannot be removed until the close of the Fair without per-mission from the Secretary or the Supervisor in charge of tlie depart- NORTH CAROLINA AGRICULTURAL SOCIKTV. D ment: and if any person removes an article or animal without such permission, he forfeits all claims to a premium, even if the same may have been awarded. XVII. Persons desiring space for the exhibition of articles or machinery not entered for competition must apply to the Secretary as early as pos-sible, giving the name of the exhibitor and article, place of residence, and the amount of space required. XVIII. Exhibitors of horses, cattle, sheep and swine will be required to display over each stall or pen occupied by their stock a placard con-taining the name, age and breed of animal occupying the stall or pen, and also the name and address of the owner. The placard will be fur-nished and filled np at the Secretary's office. XIX. Arrangements have been made with responsible parties to fur-nish corn, oats and hay on the grounds at market prices in Raleigh, in quantities to suit purchasers. XX. All entries shall be for the first premium of the premium number under wliich they are entered; but, failing to take the first, shall com-pete for the second, if a second is offered: and, failing to take the second, shall compete for the third, if any; but shall not be awarded more than one premium under the same premium number. XSI. The same article or animal may compete for the premiums of two or more premium numbers, except when otherwise stated; but, in order to do so, must be entered under eacli. XXII. Premiums are payable thirty days after the close of the Fair, and if not claimed by the first day of February, 1894, will be regarded as donated to the Society. LIFE MEMBERS. XXIII. Life members will be furnished tickets, good for the week, on application to the Secretary. These applications may be made through the mail or in person, but must furnish the name of wife, if married, and children, if any, under twelve years of age, when tickets, properly filled out with names so furnished, will be issued. To avoid delay, appli-cation should be made for those tickets several days before the rush of Fair Week begins. GATE-KEEPERS. XXIV. Gate-keepers will be clothed with police authority, and are required to preserve order at the gates. They must not receive money for admission under any circumstances. XXV. All tickets—Life Members' tickets or otlier tickets—presented by persons not entitled to hold them, must be taken up. and those offering them required to jjurchase others before entering the grounds.

See Ohio Agricultural Station Report,Bulletin 100. IT PRODUCES MORE POTATOES than any other fertilizer. See Ver-mont Report 1888, and Michigan Report 1893. IT PRODUCES MORE CORN than any other fertilizer. See Vermont Report 1888, page 93. The ODORLESS PHOSPHATE improves the physical condition of the soil in addition to the i)lant food it contains. See tlie endorsement of the United States Department of Agriculture, pages 173 and 174. in Report of 1891, where it is stated: "For several years experiments have been carried on which have finallj' demonstrated beyond any reasonable doubt that the Phosphoric Acid in Basic Slag (Odorless Phosphate) is available for plant food." " ODORLESS PHOSPHATE." " A sample of this material was drawn from stock purchased of Jacob Reese, of Philadelphia, by J. H. Ives, of Danbin-y. If this Basic Slag could be purchased cheaply enough it would be well worth the attention of those tobacco growers who endeavor to avoid the use of sulphates on their land." — Connecticut Report, 1891. The " Slag Phosphate " (the Odorless) produced more Oats in the experiments of the Ohio Agricultural Experiment Station in 1891 than any other fertihzer. See Bulletin, Vol. V, No. 3, p. 53. In the Bulletin of the Ohio Agricultural Experiment Station for August, 1891, p. 73, they say of the Odorless Phosphate: "In our experiments this material. Acid Phosphate and Dissolved Bone Black, have been used side by side, with results thus far favorable to the slag." THE ODORLESS PHOSPHATE Is the Purest Plant Food Ever Made, it Is Ground Finer, it Goes Further, and Lasts Longer, Than Any Other Fertilizer Ever Used. Do you want a big crop of Wheat?

The Carriage Jouriuil, of Chicago, 111., says: "You have a great invention, worthy of a gold medal from Congress." A WONDERFUL BIT. It is a wonderful bit, as is demonstrated by two facts, an examination of its simple mechanism and the record it has made in stopping every lun-se, regardless of its viciousness, on which it has been tried. The principle at the bottom of this bit is so simple, so logical and practical, that we wonder it was not adopted before, much as we wonder that it toolc gener-ations for men to realize that car wheels did not need to run in cogs. Will you please hold your nose tiglitly, shutting the air passages, and then try to run swiftly ; do you think you would go far, no matter how wild or angry you. were? Do you not thinlv your mind would turn to malting an erfort to relieve the stoppage of breathing? Suppose this pressing could be regulated to a hair, parti-ally shutting ofl' your breathing or grading it to the finest pitch, and supposing you knew that your privilege to breathe depended upon your obedience and gen-tleness; don't you think you would soon learn to be gentle and obedient? That is the principle of Britt's Automatic Bit. The pulling does not act on the bit itself, lacerating the mouth to no advantage, but it works outside of the bit on the rubber pads, each of which rests against the nostril, and as the rein is pulled these pads are pressed against the nostril, gradually shutting off the wind in pro-portionate time to the strength thrown into the pull on the rein, which is regula-ted by springs at the side. The bit also cleverly allows the mouth to open slightly at the same moment by pressure of tlie bar in the month against the lower ,jaw so that a very limited amount of air can pass in that way when tlie nostrils are entirely closed. But what are the results of its use? Letters have arrived from all over the world, letters seen by the writer, telling of incident after incident where it has made vicious and unmanageable horses as gentle as kittens. The amountof it is. horses are like men ; when they see there is absolutely no use in fighting they quietly submit. What a grand Invention this is? A man can let his wife, mother or daughter drive a spirited horse and know they are safe. If he has bad a horse utterly beyond control, he can now drive him with comfort and ease. Many a horse now almost u.seless can be made worth thousands with this bit. In fact no horse-man should lose the opportunity of securing Dr. L. P. Britt's descriptive pam-phlets, giving illustrations of the bit, with complete descriptions, letters from all over America, prices, etc. The half-page adveriisemeut in this liSt should also be carefully noted. His office is .37 College Place, New York. Another invention of the Doctor's which will soon be upon the market and which will go far toward revolutionizing the horseshoe and nail industry, is a nailless horseshoe. The shoe is so simple that It makes one smile to look at it. It is simply a grand invention, as it is a long-wearing shoe, and it will at last put an end to sore feet, lameness, lockjaw, etc., in horses from nails being driven into the foot. It is so rapidly ad,iusted that a man can take his horse's shoes off every night about as easily as lie can take otf his own. Horsemen should not fail to be informed of this improvement.
