Is your home and surroundings as
pretty as they can be made? If so
we need your aid; if not read our
plan for beautifying and let us help
God in His goodness has been most
prodigal in giving Beckham County
a soil and climatic condition highly
favorable to the production of fruit,
flowers and treesv They are ours if
we will claim them. '
We believe the citizens of our
County are appreciative of these
facts but have not yet come to a full
realization of our privileges.
The Great Hand that creates all,
mankind especially, which is the
crowning glory of His handiwork, ex-
pects us to continue the work of
beautifying the little corner in which
we live. The Great Creator has so
wonderfully arranged our conditions
for us and opened such possibilities
to us, we, therefore call on every
possible activity to do every thing in
their power to help us develop a
higher appreciative sense of these

FROM I. L. HOOVER
W. W. Blackburn sent pictures of
the crowd during the Beckham
County Fair this year to I. L. Hoover
and received the following reply
which, we are sure, his many friends
will be glad to read:
Gardena, Calif., 9-30, 1921
Received the pictures and thank
you for so kindly remembering us
They look like you had a real Fair
grounds and the right kind of crowds.
I would guess it at 7,000 paid tickets.
That looks pretty big, but also looks
like some crowd. Am truly glad the
Fair is doing so well. I still dream
about that old Fair and if there were
any spiritualists in attendance, they
probably saw me floating around the
grounds during Fair week. I hope
to be there in person, “properly
clothed and in my right mind.’’ some
We had a great visit with the
Ho^ks, and Rube King and family
called on us. but none of them stayed
long enough. Would like very much
to meet all the old timers.
Having the first rain today since
last May; last five days been very
warm, around 95. Again thanking
you for the pictures and wishing you
and “it” continued success, with
kindest regards to all,
I am respectfully,
I. L. HOOVER.

Deep sorrow was manifested by
our people Tuesday when word was
received of the death of Mrs. D. A.
Mayer at the home of her daughter,
Mrs. C A. Ellis (nee Martha Helen
Mayor) at Tekamah, Neb., after an
illness of several months.
While her health was poorly when
she was here several months ago, it
was thought a visit to her children
and old friends would be of benefit
to her. While in Missouri visiting
relatives she was stricken with paraly
sis, and while at times it was thought
she would recover, it was only tem-
porary and for some time her friends
have been very anxious about her.
The body was taken to Sturgeon,
Mo., her old home, and funeral ser-
vices were held today.
Mr. Mayer was formerly editor of
the News-Democrat. The family lived
here many years aiid have a host of
friends here who offer deepest sym-
pathy in this sad hour.
We trust some one will furnish us
an obituary for next week.
$TORE ROBBED OF $300.00
The safe at the Herring & Young
store at Foss, was blown open with
nitroglycerine Monday night, and
$300.00 in cash taken. 0. H. Young,
with the sheriff of Washita county,
investigated the robbery Tuesday,
but no clues were found.
The robbers probably entered
through the back window of the
ware-room. Nothing was disturbed
except the safe and it was the opinion
of Mr. Young that the robbers were
experienced in safe-blowing.
