THE LEXINGTON LEADER
LEXINGTON. CLEVELAND COUNTY. OKLAHOMA. FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER it W5
Sixth Annual Agricultural
Of Lexington and Vicinity in Lexington,
Oklahoma, at Keller's Hall
The sixth annual agricultural ex-
hibit Saturday in Keller's hall
brought out an enthusiastic bunch
of exhibitors and a fine display of
products—the best, in fact, that
have ever been shown here. The
farmers and townspeople alike en-
joyed the event and the only thing
to be regretted is that all coukl not
win premiums. The fair idea
should be encouraged, the compe-
tition for blue ribbons among the
farmers is bringing out each succes-
sive year, more and better products.
The successful way in which this
exhibit has been handled is har-
binger to a much better showing in
1916. H. H. Jacobs was here
from Norman all day and he was
highly pleased with the display.
We give the list of the premium

There were many other exhibits
upon which no premiums had been
offered, the farmers seemingly being
I satisfied with showing their wares
to the many visitors who thronged
the hall during the afternoon.
Among the other exhibitors who
had products entered we noted: J.
H.Taylor. JamesGault. Carl Smith,
N. Burke, Fred Giroux, Stiver
Thompson, C. Paulson, M. L. Mc-
Jimsey, Solomon Cox, and a long
list whose names we did not have
time to secure.
The success of the fair is largely
due to the efforts of J. J. Brown of
Corbett and Jay Sherman—these
men securing the funds which made
the fair possible, working out the
preminte list and interesting the
farmers to bring in their best pro-
day Saturday, busy every minute
of the day. The prize winners will
have their exhibits sent to Norman
and. if needed, the exhibits will be
sent to the -1.11e fair for the county
exhibit. Mr Jacobs is arranging a
very elaborate and attractive show
in the Cleveland county booth and
all citizens from this county will
have caiiM to feel proud of our pro-
ducts on display. Competition is
going to bo k. en this year and who
ever wins the cup mest accomplish
and cover a wiee scope of territory.
This year as in years past, it is ex-
pected that Lexington with her fine
farming territory, will play an im-
portant part in the exhibit.
To the passerby, the stranger here
Saturday's exhibit would have told
a wonderful story. It was a repre-
sentative showing of high class
products to be found only where
the best quality of growing ground
obtained—Lexington is the heart
of such a country.
The merchants subscribed very j
liberally to this year's fair—if more j
farmers would become interested j
the premium fund would enlarge
accordingly. The merchant needs
the co-operation of the farmers, but
it can also be said that the farmer
the co-operation of the mer
chants. Let us hope next year s
fair is to be a success now that the
very successful fair of 101"' is his-
