The Reunion Closed.
The Old Soldiera' Reunion
ciosed last Saturday night with
with the largest crowd of any
day during the entire week.
The promoters having failed to
successfully carry out their pro
gram turned the management of
the Reunion over to the business
men of Canton, who bent all
their energies and succeeded in
making a success out of what
would otherwise have been a to-
tal failure.
On Friday afternoon Hon. Ben
Hennessey gave an excellent ad-
dress to a large audience and re-
ceived their closest attention.
'His reputation as an orator is
well known, so further comment
by us is unnecessary. The ad-
dress was preceded by a song by
Mr. J. R. Thornton, of Wa-
tonga, who, together with M.
D. Herrington, came up from
Watonga with Mr. Ilenessey and
they* proved themselves boosters
in helping to make the days'
[ program th< success that it
Saturday proved to be the big
day of the Reunion. In the ^af-
ternoon the Speaking Contest
was held at the grand stand.
The first prize, $2.50, was won
by Mabel Everett; the second
$1.50, by Laura Stnilh; the
third, 75 cents, by Blanche Good-
Following the Speaking Con-
test, the Baby Show was held,
Ora Atkins' baby, of Canton-
ment, winning first ,prize, and
Henry Barnes' baby second.
The judges were Mr. McGuire,
3d Cox, of Longdale, and the
evangelist, Rev. Irick.
The base ball game between
Canton and Okeene, which was
held in the parkv beginning
about 4:30, resulted in a victory
for Okeene, the score being 3
to 5.
The merry-go-around was put
up Saturday afternoon and did a
big business after they got to
The Williams' Jubilee Enter-
tainers and Harper's Comedians
both had full housos and the
stands and places of amusement
were kept running until a late
The wrestling matches drew
good crowds and seemed to give
general satisfaction. Thursday
afternoon Linn Smith won two
falls over Clark of Colorado.
Friday ^afternoon Delevuk, of
Kansas, won two falls from Sax-
on, of Oklahoma City. Satur-
day afternoon Delevuk and Saxon
wrestled for a purse, 3 best out
5. Delevuk won the first fall,
Saxon the second and Delevuk
the next two straight and took
the money.
Thirty-six old soldiers regis-
tered, which proves that the
business men of Canton could
pull together and hold an Old
Soldiers'' Reunion every year.
Canton Park is an ideal place
for a reunion and the Record
hopes that next year Canton's
business men will have a reunion
and we hope to see the park
grounds covered with tents for
the benefit of the Old Boys who
wore the Blue and the Gray.

Burk's Big Uncle Toot's Cabin
Company under a mammoth can-
vas will exhibit at Canton T .urs-
day night, September B*Uh.
Among the many tented or-
ganizations in America, that
have become famous,!the Ring-
ling Bros, and Barium and
Bailey Shows are conceded to be
the largest and most popular
Circuses. But the largest Dra-
matic organization exhibiting
uuder canvas is "Burk's Big
Spectacular Production of Uncle
Tom's Cabin." This Mammoth
Amusement Enterprise is the ac-
knowledged Barnum of all "Un-
cle Tom's Cabin Companies."
Like the big circuses, they travel
in their own cars and require a
special train of their own to
transport their paraphernalia
from one city to another. This
organization embraces more men,
women and children, more horses,
ponies, donkeys and Siberian
Jblood hounds, more chariots,
floats, tableaux wagons, etc.,
than any other similar exhibi-
tion in America. The parade,
which may be seen'dpily on the
principal streets wherever this
mighty show exhibits, is the
largest of any Dramatic exhibi-
tion in the world. The immor-
tal play, "Uncle Tom's Cabin,"
is Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stow's
masterpiece of dramatic fiction.
The management of Burkg's Big
Company has spared no expense
iu securing a Metropolitan cast
to properly produce this grand
old drama. Iss combination with
the dramatic talent the manage-
ment presents a contingent of
high class vaudeville artists con
sisting of merry-makers, jijJ?ilee
singers, dancers, wire walkers,
hoop rollers, etc. These artists
are introduced during the action
of the play and always create
the greatest of satisfaction.
Burk's famous Concert Band and
Symphony Orchestra is also one
of the many strong fe itures of.
this up-to-date Modern American
Amusement Organization, which
is coming in all its vast entirety
and will exhibit at Canton Thurs-
day night, September 30th, un-
der a Mammoth Water Proof
Palace Pavillion Theater, seat-
ing 2500 people.
Correction of Marriage Notice
Owing to a mistake—not of
the compositor—the name of Mr.
John C. Barney, wtio was mar-
ried September lcth to Miss
Georgia Roberts, at the resi-
dence of Mr. Joseph Hamilton,
was given incorrectly. The
wedding was a very pleasant af-
fair, relatives of both the con-
tracting parties being present
from near and far. Mr. Barney
has for five years been in charge
of about forty schools in the
Philippines, whither the happy
couple set out'immediately after
the wedding. Miss Roberts has
been a successful teacher for sev-
eral years in Dewey county.
The best wishes of a multitade
of triends will follow Mr. and
Mrs. Barney through life.
Card of Thanks.
I wish to thank the friends
and neighbors who so kindly as-
sisted during the illness and
death of my beloved mother.
