Well Attended Meeting Held on
Monday Ni^ht at City Hall.
A well attended and enthusias-
tic meeting was held at the city
hall Monday night for the pur-
pose of further discussing the
project of organizing a district
fair and agriculturial association
for Edmond. The sentiment was
strongly in favor of the organiza-
tion of such an association and
the indications now are that a
district fair, such as are held in
the eastern states, will be a
feature that the people of this
city will offer to Edmond and vi-
cinity this fall.
There is no question but a dis-
trict fair is of considerable benefit
to a community. It brings busi-
ness to a city, affords pleasant
recreation to the people, adver-
tises a town, furnishes a splendid
opportunity for renewing old ac-
quaintances and forming new
While tne movement at the
present time is in the embryo
state, yet the plans have so far
developed that some idea of the
nature of the proposed plans can
be had. If the association is or-
ganized, there will be horse rac-
ing, perhaps athletic contests,
live stock, agricultural and horti-
cultural exhibits, exhibits of man-
ufactured articles, works of art,

time and report at the next meet-
ing. This committee is com-
posed of J. J. Huston, chairman;
James Brown, Wm. K. Chapman
and J. L. Wyller.
After remarks had been made

Burglars in Eldmond.
Some time Friday night burg-
lars entered the office of James
Brown and attempted to steal the
contents of the safe. That the
would-be thieves were amateurs
was shown by the bungling job.
They attempted to demolish the
heavy doors with a hammer and
succeeded only in making a few
indentations on the steel surface,
breaking off the dial and one of
the handles. Mr. Brown informs
the Sun that there was but little
money in the safe, although it
contained jewelry and other val-
uables in the sum of $800.
Mr. Brown will either have to
send the doors back to the firm
from which the safe was pur-
chased at Cincinnati for repairs,
or purchase new ones.
