A STREET FAIR DISCUSSED
And Committee Initructed to Report
On It. Other Millers.
The commercial clulj had a
very interesting meeting last
night a good attendance of mem-
bers being present.
It was a businss meeting and the
maimer in which the members took
hold of the work indicated that
the club now has the working
spirit. The sentiment of the club
was expressed by S. V. Hayes
when he said "We want to pull
for everything we can get and keep
all that we have."
President Browne presided over
the meeting and Secretary 4eech
was in his place. A number of
matters of more or less importance
A petition from a number of
fanners southwest of town for an-
other bridge across Line Creek was
read. They asked that the club
furnish material and a man to
superintend the construction of the
bridge. The petition was referred
to the committee on roads and
A letter from A. U. Furnsworth
Rock Island immigration aijent
was read asking that Chickasha
send agricultural products for a
Frisco-Rock Island display at the
state fairs of Minnesota Iowa and
Illinois. It was the opinion of all
that we shoul 1 send products for
the dip'ay and the advertising
committee was authorized to ar-

that 2000 folders containing matter
in regard to Chickasha and Indian
Territory be printed. There was
some discussion and it was voted
to publish 5000 copies of the
One of the most important
questions that came was that of a
street fair or other form of fall
festivities for Chickasha. Dr. Rid-
dle opposed the street fair idea but
was warmly in favor of au old-time
county fair. A. S. Gdkey per-
haps expressed the opinion of a maj
ortty of those present when he
suggested that the best thing would
te a combination of something like
the Parker Shows and an agricul-
tural exhibit. The matter was re-
ferred to the committee on trade
extension with instructions to re-
port at a meeting of the executive
committee to be held next Monday

Ample Precautions Taken to Prevent In-
jury to the Visitors
Guy Witherspoon of Deuton
Texas is the guest of his brother
Ford. The two will leave tomor-
row morning for art extensive trip
through the North and East.
Judge Payne and Eugene Ham-
ilton canvassed the returns of
last Saturday's election this morn-
ing and found J. C. Early dulv
elected alderman. The job of can-
vassing election returns is 1 very
lucrative one the pay being $1.00
for each person.
Tomorrow is the day for the
greatest baseball event that has
ever happened on this side of
the earth or on the other side
cither for that matter.
The Concentrated Terribles had
their final practice last evening
and every man is in the very pink
of condition. jjThe boys are already
beginning to feel sorry for their
antagonists as it is evident that
they won't last till half gone.
Arch Bohart made the first
grand stand play yesterday. He
had donned his uniform and pranc-
ed out ou the diamond proud as a
young colt up popped a fly and
Arch reached for it and caught it
in his eye. Pitcher Perry is pre-
pared to puzzle the visitors. John
Gribi's work at second would
do credit to a professional while
Bert Barefoot s sprinting is some-
thing wonderful. Jim Darnell of
course is there with the goods at
first. A. S. Gilkey has astounded
every one who has seen his gather-
ing in the long flies in right. R.
Stephens isn t so bad but the gen-
eral opinion is that he can play
better among the rooters than on
the diamond. Claycomb is playing
good ball in fact there isn't a slow-
one iu the bunch.
The Oklahoma City crowd will
arrive on a special train and vvillbe
met at train ample precautions
being taken to prevent any violence
being done there. Before the
game there will be a grand street
parade in which the commercial
club band the Red Cross Brigade
and a great train will participate.
It is probable all the business
houses will close and every body
will go to the game.
Mrs. Mike Crawley and two
children Mrs. Henries and daugh-
ter Mabel left Monday morning for
a short visit with- relatives in
Work of Bro Buen and Wife. Grants
Checotah. Aug. 7. J. M. Edy a
large cotton grower living near
this place has been experimenting
with a novel method of destroying
boll weevil. He pnts out torches
in his cotton fields at night one
torch to an acre of ground. These
torches are set in pans of water on
which there is oil. The moths
and sharpshooters which breed
the dreeded doll weevil are attract-
ed to these lights the same as a
common moth and when they fly
to it they are either burned to
death or their '"ings are scorched
and they fall into the pans of water
and oil. Mr. Edy says it is a suc-
cessful method. livery morning
he takes out vast numbers of dead
moth.- which have gone to their
death iu the tor:h. He is of the
opinion that if the system is adopt-
ed in a community it can be effec-
tively rid of the boll weevil.
BEAT THE ROCK ISLAND
Chickasha Man aRecord Breaking Made
Run at Minco
Special To The Exiress.
Minco; I. T. Aug. 7. Ford
Witherspoon a prominent Chick-
asha cotton man made a record
breaking run in this city yester-
day. He was calling on friends
and was informed that No. 35 on
which he was to leave was 20
minutes late.. Sitting on the ver-
anda six blocks from the station
he heard the train whistle a half
mile away. He immediately put
011 a full head of steam and started
for the station. When No. .is
pulled in he was ou the platform
having beaten the train by fully
five mhintes. Bud Bryan who was
also in the city had gone down to
to the station an hour earlier in
in order to make sure of catching
the train. Witherspoon 's run is the
talk of the to wn. It is confident-
ly believed that he could out scoot
scooting Scotty and not half try.
Don't forget the ballgame.

man made an official visit to Alex
The Chr stiau church last Sun-

vast amount of work which has
been accomplished since Bro. and
Sister Boen has been in their midst
by granting thtm a vacation. Two
years ago when Bro Boen came to

TWO FREIGHT CARS COLLIDE
In the Rock Island Yard.
Two freight cars crashed into
each other this morning in the
Rock Island yards just in front of
the dispatcher's office. They were
going at a pretty lively rate and
one of them was butted almost into
the dispatcher's office. Both cars
were derailed and damaged
somewhat but the damage was not
great. A large force was at once
put to work cleaning up the wreck
add ttn.y ept busy till noon.
Edwards Moore and Brannan
are now at home in their new
building and are getting things in
good shape. They will have a
very handsome store. Three
"bull's-eye" windows are being
cut in on the west side of the
building which will make it a
"daylight" store. :
