ject and he proved the wisdom of his
choice by his address. The address
was full of eplgramatlc expressions
that ItAvould be profitable for a young
man to take and make his business
creed. Mr. Fairley made a hit with
the audience with his opening state
ment. He said that he had been liv
ing in Hillsboro for 18 years and that
this was his flrst opportunity to make
a speech ; that the people of Hillsboro
seemed to think that no one but a
lawyer could make a speech ; that
once before he thought his opportun
ity had come; that during one of the
Chautauquas he was requested to take
a lady speaker to the grounds j that

he was met by one of the legal lights
and his chance was gone ; that some
lights were measured by Watts, but
that this one was all Watts.

his striking eplgramatlc statements
