The big Greer county fair is
now on at Mangum, and will
continue until Saturday night.
The exhibits are said to be
fine, and well worth going to see.
While this has been a very un-
favorable crop year, a visit of
inspection to the fair will dem-
onstrate that much rain is not
absolutely necessary to produce
many necessaries in old Greer.
The management have spared
no effort or expense to make
fair the most successful one in
the history of the association.
Nearly 650 premiums are offered
for the best exhibits in every
line of farm products, live stock,
Yesterday was Woodmen day
at the fair and some of the best
teams ' in Western Oklahoma
were there to compete for the
liberal cash prizes offered for the
best drilled teams.
Take a day off today or to-
morrow and visit the fair. Take
the wift and children along. It
will be worth much to them, as
there will be many things to in-
terest them. Don't miss it.

Did Exhibit of Our Granite at
the State Fair in Charge
of Capt. Pellow.
Much favorable comment on
the exhibit of our granite at the
state fair has been made. Super-
intendent Pellow, of the South-
western quarries, was in charge
of a splendid exhibit there. He
says there were 160 varieties of
Oklahoma building stone on ex-
hibit, and that the Oklahoma
red granite attracted the atten-
tion of people interested from all
over the United States. As a
result of the exhibit. Mr. Pellow
took orders for five car loads of
finished stone, besides a large
amount of stone in the rough.
One monument dealer from
Kansas said to him: "That stone
is equal to the Swedish Rose
granite, which costs me $5.00
per cubic foot, in the rough,
and I don't care what
you call it, I am going to
sell it for Swedish Rose. I want
a carload of it at once."
