GAYNOR'S FUNERAL
SERVICES SIMPLE
New York. At the request of his
widow, who said she knew he would
have wished It so, the funeral of May
or William J Oaynor, who died at sea,
will be marked by simplicity, without

pomp. The funeral service will be
held September 21 In Old Trinity

At Mrs. Onynor's request the only
escort of the mayor's body will be
mounted policemen. There will be no
military accompaniment. Though num
erous orchestras have volunteered to
play the funeral music, Mrs. Oaynor
nsked that only the renul.r choir of
Old Trinity sing. 8he asked that
Gounod's "Ave Maria" be sung, be
cause, nhe snld. It was one of her hus
band's favorites, and she often sang
It for him.
Mayor Oaynor was voyaging over
sea on the uteamer MbIHc In the hope
of regaining his strength to enter the
three-cornered municipal campaign as
a candidate for reelection, when he
died suddenly on the Baltic as the
steamer was within a few hundred

MALHEUR COUNTY
FAIR GREATEST
EVER
Opening Day Attendance Is Greater
Than Any Previous Fair
The opening tjajg of the fair found
the t puces devoted to the sheep and
est tie, hiiR in I horses too mi ill for
the number ot animals on hand. The
additional number of dairy herds
speaks volumes for the way the people
or this county nre going into the
dairy business and the large number
of bogs indicate they are using the
two t beat mortgage lifters known to
the farming world.
Do not overlook that school ex
hibit as It has many valuable lessons,
showing tbc HlrHiititi-i.N of the modern
methods of Instruction.
The in. hi. parlllion was certainly a
beehive, wijh hundreds of exhibitors
putting I -.ii the llnlshiug touches to
the display that cannot be beat for
quality. I in growing season has
been a good ooe In the valley and all
the fralta vegetables, and grains are
ae good ss sre produced anywhere
sod better than In moet places.
The program Tueedsy waa nn In
terestlog one, but a few numbers
failed to All and It made It shorter
than expected.
Oox proved an easy winner in the
motor cycle race, with Oleen second.
the 3:30 tiot went to Vada In
straight heats with Ooldle second
aod Honnle third.
The two year old trot required three
heats, Bessie winning the llret and
third heats and the race, with Paosra
second aod liens third.
The mule race wae the best number
oo the bill and will ha repeated later
iu the week. Virgil Smith first. John
Rodgere seeood. Loraine MoW III lams
third.
The oow pony race was won by

Turk with Spain second, slter mnk

the rear, Klmer Dorry third.
The two year old race was a hard
I one for the judges. On the first race
the horses got away to a had start and
there waa a mlxup nesr the finish so
the juuilges concluiled they should
run It over ami this proved a tlcnil
heat between White and Loraine.
There were many exhibitions of
fanoy roping and riding buck lug
horses by men and women of the
range.
The music hy the Welser lisnd
was fully appreciated
In the motorcycle race Wednesday
A. W. Williams won with A. P. Tyler
second
I 'an H. and Marie Fitzsimmons gave
a (rood race in the 2:25 trot, with Dan
B. nosing out ahead.
In the steer roping contest the men
were short of roping horses and made
several misses in throwing. Glen Wal
cott made the best time, 7 seconds.
In the bucking contest there were no
spills, although several of the horses
war good buckers.
The wild horse race brought them all
to their feet and resulted in many spills.
There were sixteen of them and it was
impossible to keep trsck of over fifteen
at one time. Earl McCullougb got a
bad fall and the horse rode by Hazel
Walker went over the fence falling on
Her, Dut the soft ground saved her from
broken bones. It was a caae of riders,
horses and saddles sll mixed up to
gether. On Saturday there will be thirty iu
the wild horse race and you cannot even
imagine what it will be like.
