Echoes of a Good Fruit Year
Returns of a good fruit year in
the south end of Cleveland county
are beginning to come in, financial-
ly and in words of pruii-e for the
fin* quality of the fruit raised. The
yield this year has been one typical
of what Cleveland counts can do
when giv*n half a chance. Despite
the rainy season which prevailed
when the crop was in the formativ
period, the peach crop toppep all
former results.
The (Hen-Wood Fruit Farm
owned by Dr. Robert Thacker. and
located one and one half miles east
of here, claims the distinction of
shipping the first two carloads of
peaches that have been sent out
from Lexington or Purcell. The
two consignments went to the Ozark
Fruit (irowers Association in St
Louis and the second to the Beaty-
Reynolds Company at Swink Colo-
rado. The first shipment was sold
in Cincinnati, Ohio. The two cars
contained N7-1 bushels of Fancy
hertas. In a letter from the Swink
house to Dr. Thacker, they state,
"Car arrived in good shape. Peaches
all sold out in two days. Fruit
dealers say fruit the finest ever ship-
ped into the valley." Such words
of praise should mean something to
Cleveland county, coming as they
do from a state and locality that is
noted for its (inequality of peaches
Tin Swink Advocate contains the
following: 'The Heaty-Reynolds
Company received a car load of fine
Elberta peaches from our old friend
Dr. Robert Thacker of Lexington,
Oklahoma, last Tuesday morning
and by noon about half of them
were sold out. Those seeing them
acknowledged that it was the finest
car-load they had ever seen: that
they were even better than the
home grown variety, which have
heretofore held sway in this state.
The last load was sold by Wednes-
day morning, which speaks for it-
self.'' Thus is Cleveland county
and the good wares of Glen-Wood
Fruit Farm heralded in that western
The Thacker farm yielded a little
over 4000 bushels of peaches this
year. Many were handled by the
Caskev Canning Company; many
were used to supply the local and
Purcell market. Many were lost on
account of the rain, wind and damp
weather. The year, though, has
been one of great crops all over the
iouth end orchards and has stamp-
ed this country as one of the best
in the state in the fruit line.
The only crop which suffered
no(iceahly was apples. The blight
prevalent all over the country, got
in its work here and made short
whnt first promised to be a buinpei
yield of apples. The pear crop is
ideal, fine quality and trees loaded.
Howard Friend, who owns a fine
orchard southeast of here, came out
with a good yield in his apple or-
chard. Ilis big cider mill took care
of something like 500 bushels of
apples and his cider-vinegar is now
on the market. Last year, Mr.
Friend was quite successful in dis-
posing of his stock and all who used
the vinegar were very favorably im-
pressed with its quality.
The prospects of a very good fall
here have enhanced greatly by the
1915 fruit crop—it has brought lots
of money to this community.

To the Citizens of Lexington
lii order that all may fully understand the rales and cost
of installing electric lights we make
litis explanation
The rate on the lights will he 1" cents per Kilo Watt—a kilo watt being equal to 1000
watts, sufficient current to furnish light from a lli-candle power bulb for SO hours or light from a
32-candle power bulb for 40 hours. A minimum rate of 50 cents per month will he charged.
In installing the lights, a meter must be purchased from the town. The meter will he fur-
nished at the retail purchase price of $ti.00—upon return of the meter this um w ill tie refunded
the purchaser in case they do not desire service aiiyloiiger.
The wiring, insulations, switches', bulbs will be sold at wholesale price. We ask no margin
of profit and are offering (his important inducement in order that the patronage may be made one
that will speak well for the town.
The labor on installing electric lights will he found very reasonable—we will see that there
is no overcharge or excessive rates asked or paid.
With the installation of the pump at the water station, a day and nighl service w j 11 he fur-
nished. Until that time, only a night service will be given patrons. The meter will be read at
the end r teach month and payment for current must be made at the office of the town clerk by
the 10th of each month or service will he suspended to the patron.
The service has come to stay—electric lights are a permanent institution in Hie town of
Lexington. A liberal patronage of I lie electric lights will prove your appreciu lion oi tin enterpi i e.
If any additional information is desired it will be gladly given by the superintendent at
the water works.
