Big Celebration

on the Funk pony, with Mr. Cady

A number of people then went
to the race track west of town,
where a few horse races were pull
ed off. The first race was a purse
race for three year olds. Carson
Wright's colt, Glen Akins won
with Gadberry up, though it was
the first race the horse ever enter
ed. The second race, a matched
race, was won by Frank Gadber
ry's horse from the Davis sorrel
horse. The third event was a race
for saddle horses, and was also
won by Gadberry.
The free dance at the Craig hall
during the evening, the speaking
at the Opera House by Joe Madi
sonthe electric theatres, and the
vaudeville and band concert tilled
out the later part of the day. The
band played all day and drew
many compliments from those wKo
had never heard the boys. One
of the prettiest attractions of the
day was the drill in the evening
by the uniformed ranks of the 1.
O. O. F., in charge of Capt. Lane.
Their uniforms were beautiful,
and the drill almost perfect, show
ing the hard work they had put
in, in getting the various maneuv
ers down to such a fine point. It
was an excellent advertisement for
the order and drew the admiration
of the entire crowd.
Great credit is due the members
of the committees, and especially
the chairmen, who made it the
best celebration ever held in Lib
eral. There was something doing
all the time and the Marshalls
Funk, Wright, Gasaway and
Dean kept the crowd moving and
in good order all the time. There
wasn't an intoxicated man on the
streets all day, nor was 'there a
single fight or accident to mar the
celebration. It was a huge success
and we know the people who came
here for the celebration appreciat
ed the absence of the petty graft
ers. The shows, games and other
amusements were free as adver
tised, and we believe they were
all appreciated by the crowd.
Especial credit is due to I. S.
Reynolds who secured the sub
scriptions for the celebration and
devoted practically all of his time
for the past two weeks to making
the celebration a success.
