dollars invested in automobiles by the
farmers and townspeople of Beaver
County Again f say.csnyou beat it!
SHOW DAY A BIG DAY.
Monday was "Show Day" and it was
Indeed a big day for Beaver. The town
was crowded with people and our mer-
chants report a splendid trade.
Cooper Brothers Combined Shows
visited Beaver that day and put on
morning and evening performances.
Their largo tent was well packed at
both shows and those mho wltnesaed
the performances say that it was high-
class clean and worth the money. The
public were pleased the show people
enjoyed a good patronage and the bus-
iness people "of Beaver made some
extra money on account of the large
number of people in town that day
so all were pleased. We believe good
clean worth-the-priae attractions are
a benefit to any town and help to keep
things moving and wide-awake. Wo
hope all the good things on the road
will come this way.
CONVICTED OF RAPE.
D D Gracy who was tried and con-
victed of rape being sentenced to five

COOL PLEASANT ROOMS FOR RENT
PHONE 72 FOR LOCATION TERMS &C.
The biggest evunt since tho advent of the new railroad in
fact one of tho biggest events ever staged in Beaver was the Big
Lot Sale and Barbecue in Beaver Heights last Saturday which
was put on by the Cady Lnnd Company of which H. R. Barnard
is the local representative and who had charge of the arrange-
ments. The event had been widely and thoroughly advertised and
everybody from far and near came in to take in the festivities and
take advantage of the opportunity to buy some choice lots in this
splendid new addition. Various estimates have been placed on the
number of people in attendance but we feel that we are conserva-
tive when we place the number at 8000. There may have been
more. There could not have been but few less People came from
aM directions and from all over the county as well as from adjoin
ing counties and states. A good idea of the size of the throng may
be determined when it is known that 1800 pounds of beef 2500
buns 400 loaves of bread and 125 gallons of coffee were served to
the crowd at the noon hour.
The prospority.of Beaver County in general was demonstrated
most forcibly by the large number of those who visited Beaver that
day driving in in automobiles. Those who claim to know say that
there were more than 800 cars on the streets and for the most
part these were owned by Beaver County farmers. Our alert
County Attorney C. F. Twyford took the trouble to secure some
data as to automobiles and he tells us that there were 843 cars
here and that basing their value at a very fair figure they repre-
sented a total valuation of $250250.00. That is not so bad. What
county of our size and population can beat such a record y We
doubt if there is anothor county in tho State or any other state
for that matter that can equal it.
The lot sale was a decided success as well as the barbecue.

Mr. Barnard tells us that ho and his salesmen wore busy
all the time and that a largo number of lots were sold during tho
sale and that business has been brisk since. Those who looked
over the now addition could not help but bo pleased. It is a most
desirablo location splendidly situated and fs beyond doubt In tho
heart of the best residenoe section of the city.
Aside from tho benellt which the Land Company realized from
the sale of lots and tho advertising of their tract tho event was a
big thing for Beaver It cost the promoters no small amount of
money yet they bore absolutely all tho expense and were only
glad that other Beaver business people could share in tho benefits.
Tho Cady Land Company aro spending considerable mon'oy in
opening up this tract. They aro putting it in first-class shape
have graded up tho streets and erected attractive markers a tho
entrance of each street giving it a very classy and exclusive ap
pearance. They have demonstrated that they are live wide-awake
business men and of the class which our town should be glad

DEATH CLAIMS LITTLE ONE.
Death entered the home of Mr 'a d
Mrs D. Humphrey of this city early
Tuesday morning and called away the
spirit of their baby daughter Alice
Dott who had been ill for several days
with muaslHS fallowing which mem-
branous oroup developed and claimed
the little sufferer. Alice was born
June 20th 101 i and passed away May
9th 1010 being just a little less than
two years of age at the very age when
all her baby sweetness and prattle now
forever stilled will be most keenly
felt by the fond mother and father and
other members of the household.
Owing to the nature of the illness it
was not deemed best to conduct a pub-
lic funeral. Brief services were con
ducted at tho grave by Rev. Leonard
Tuesday afternoon and the little body
laid to rest In the Heaver cemetery.
Beaver friends sympathize with the
bereaved ones In their sorrow and sin-
cerely regret this deep aflllction which
has come upon them.
