Married at Miami.
M.r. and Mrs. R. Q. James of
.Miami, .came over Wednesday
«9v but hold on., a .minute.
We're getting .too fast
Mr. R. Q. James, of Miami,
'formerly of this place, and Miss
-Lula Maxwell of that.city, were
married on Wednesday last at
,ithe home of Me. and Mrs. Wm.
Doty in Miami, Rev. J. R. Car-

A Double-Header the Fourth,
Fairland will have a double
header ball .game -on the 4th.
Therfirst game will be called at
2 p.m., and will be between the
locals and the Bernice boys. As
soon as this game is .finished the
Afton team will contest the
Crawford Commedian nine.
These two games will furnish
enough sport of that kind for
one day, and as all o'f these teams
play good ballj it will be
going to see.
Monroe Carter came in the
first of the week. tUe had been
reading the Herald and saw that
we had a big crop of wheat, and
he's here to help thresh it out.
The greatest attraction that
.Fairland has for the 4th of J ulv '
celebration is the perfermances
to be given by Harry Rich, the
man whr .flirts with death.
Prof. Rich was in Fairland a few
weeks ago and .made such a hit
with the people that they secur-
ediliim for tnis big celebration.
His perfoitmances in mid air
air will be .free for everybody.
Three different exhibitions will
be-given. Don't fail to see him
Men quiver, women shriek and
worth ^children cry. tlis acts are mar-
velous. Balloon assensions are
.nothing compared with this dare-
devil. If he keeps up his per-
formances, itiis only a question
of time until he will meet a hor-
rible death. This may be the
last opportunity .you will have to
see him. Don't miss it.
