THERE'S A “DIAMOND BRAND” SHOE FOR EVERY
PURPOSE. A PRICE FOR EVERY PURSE
When you buy Shoes insist on Peters “DIAMOND
’BRAND,” the best for the price, no matter what
the price may be.

to. The monetary value of pre-
miums is not su large but after
all the honor of winning and the
ability to show agricultural pro-
ducts and live stock that are in
advance of what we have been
accustomed to is worth many
times more. On account of our
appropriation agreed upon by
our County Excise Board, being
small, it would be impossible to
have larger premiums.
Every Township in Kiowa
County will have a Free Fair
this Fall and in fact such will be
the case in very near every coun-
ty in the state; some townships
had Free Fairs last year and
thus had some advantage gained
by experience: but by the help
of every one, Dill should out-dis-
tance them all, even if it is her
first attempt. We have more
diversification of crops, more
varieties of soil more acres in
cultivation per capita, than anv
Township in the County, so it is
up to us to make a showing that]
will follow up to the State Fair,
and be a means of aiding Kiowa
County to win over other counties
at the State F'air.
Some article is becoming ready
for preperation every day, and
will continue so from now till
Fall, so keep the Fair in mind,
single out a section in your cot-
ton and corn field, a good thrifty
watermelon, keep vour best
stock in trim condition, so it will
be a small matter to get them
ready at the last moment.
If you need any help or advice
call on our Farm Demonstrator
F. F. Parker. Hobart, Okla. and
he will gladly advise you.
Girls and boys belonging to
clubs anil those that do not, look
over the catalog and pick out
something you are interested in
and commence now to prepare.
We understand that the build-
ing was insured for about a hun-
dred dollars, which was not more
than one fourth of the loss suf-
No one has the slightest idea
how the conflagration started as
there had been no fire near nor
was there any reallv inflammable
matter stored there.
Retha Ottinger the daughter
of F. L. Ottinger, who live?
northeast of Lone Wolf has been
taken to Guthrie where she was
operated or. for appendicitis.
Dr. Craun of the Methodist Hos-
pital is attending her. She is
getting on nicely considering the
difficulty of the operation and it
is to be hoped that she will soon
be able to return home.
