Mr. Mitchel of Vinita made an
excellent talk, and if you missed
it you missed something stood.
We were disappointed at the
absence of Mr. vVhit-e, the Frisco
speaker, but we had a man to
take his place.
County Att'y. Morse roain-
taiged his reputation as a 4th of
July orator. He is always equal
to the emergency.
Of course Rev. Cummins was
perfectly at home in making a
patriotic speech. He delivered
the goods all right.
Prof. Prier was making a hit
with his address of welcome un-

From the Booster
A grand wheat harvest ball
was held Tuesday evening in the
new wheat granary. Music was
furnished by theGrove orchestra.
All reported a fine time.
C. W. Lee is hauling material
for a 150 ton silo on his farm

home is 20x50, well ventilated
and well lighted. Come in and
J. R Hastings one of our up

You seen the results ot that
booster trip didn't you? Does it
pay to advertise?
Now let's put Prof Prier to
work on our agricultural exhibit
and have the best one this fall we
have ever had.
Tne Herald predicted 5000 peo-
ple for our celebration, and now
many tell us there were that
many if not more. Told you so.
Havn't you noticed how some
have been bragging about what a
grand time and what a big crowd
we had on the 4th. who didn't do
a blooii)in thing tawards making
it what it was? Yes, we killed a
bear didn't we? Excuse us while
we smile please.
Editor Martin of the Afton
American was awarded 4th prize
a $10 william. for the best write-
up of the state press association,
held at Bartlesville recently.
Bro. Martin says he never ex-
pected to win any of the prizes,
and it came as a great surprise.
Thats so much nicer than to have
tried hard to write a good one
and to have been confident of
winning a prize and then get left.
And then it came in just in time
to be mighty handy in case a fel-
low wanted a few cold ones for
had been at actual labor.
The courtesy of the Crawfords
in tendering us their big tent to
hold our exercises in was greatly
appreciated hv our people.
Quite a number wanted to
know what the letters F. C. B. on
the band boys' caps stood for.

F. M. Conner's name did not
appear on the program as one of
the orators of the day, but he
made as good a speech as any of

Now that the big celebration is
over, and wtiile we are all con
gratulating ourselves over the
success we had, the Herald wants
to say that no one is prouder of
it oh an we True, we worked for
it, worked hard, boosted until
we were almost exausted, then
drew a long breath and kept on
boosting. And if you think we
are entitled to any of the credit,,
just say so to your friends and
we will appreciate it, and when
you need our services again, just
Now that a chautauqu has been
arranged for in Fairland, let's all
set to work to make it as great a
success as our celebration was.
Many of our people are not fa-
miliar wjih the nature of a chau-
tauqua, and are inclined to class
them with the modern carnivtfl
companies. Far from it. All
good towns now have their chau-
tauquas every summer as regular
as their lyceum courees through
the winter, and are usually fos-
tered by the ministers, educa-
tors, literary people, and higher
society folks. It is a series of
|lectures, readings, recitations,
musical entertainments, etc., il
I a higher class Few towns the
I size of Fairland ever undertake
| to have a chautauqua, but fair-
land has reached the metropol-
itan stage in some respects, and
! t,his is one of them. So let's go
t > ti Iking chaut.iuqua. and keep
J talking it. They're a nice thing.

The show was fully up to the
expectation, and was generally
pronounced the best that ever
played our town. Every musi-
cian and performer was an artist
and every performance was
