There was a lot to see in the American Legion building during the Delta Fair activities. Tonight lets move around the big room to get an idea of what was there for viewing.

Judges have finished their work and the exhibits remain for the admiration of Fair goers. From crafts to cakes to canned carrots, they are all there on display.

THE KINSOLVING LEGEND -

WESLEY BUCK

Dr. Kinsolving's life around Hornersville during the first half of the 20th century became an enigma to the residents of south Dunklin County. Rumors flowed recurrently concerning his bizarre activities, some of which were shown to be true. Tonight, historian Wesley Buck (now deceased) of Hornersville reveals his research into the life of one of Southeast Missouri's most interesting characters. Kinsolving was not only a physician but a very prosperous and innovative farmer. In a time when there were no herbicides he successfully introduced geese as a means of cleaning cotton fields of grass. But his attempt to acclimatize Pima cotton to the cool temperatures of Dunklin County by storing seed in an ice house was a complete failure. Yet he effectively lighted his mansion on Little River with acetylene gas made from carbide upon which he dripped water very slowly. You will enjoy Mr. Buck's stories.
