THIRD ANNUAL FAIR A GRAND SUCCESS Considering the fact that up to the first of August we had given up all intentions ts hold a fair this year on account of the ex treme drouth—which was broken at that time, the success of the fair was beyond all possible con jectures. Nearly 800 tickets were sold Friday, which would indicate an . attendance of something line 2, j 500 people the best day, as com pared to 3,500 estimated for the best day last year. The displays were not nearly so good as formerly, partly ac counted for by the shortness of crop, and partly because there isn’t enough in it. We are edit orially suggesting this week that another year premiums be given on best displays, and thus be made worth while. The entertainment in the speed ring was right up to date, im mencely enjoyed by probably 2, 000 onlookers during the after noon of Friday. The receipts leave the associa tion in better shape than ever before—with the grand stand, band stand, judges stand and ‘ fencing all paid for and money ahead. And now for a fair next year that will eclipse any thing that has so far been held in the west. A. M. Jones, living 15 miles South ot Springfield, was in z<s make final proof last Monday.

Congressman Keating’s Letter | Fairbanks on I “Watchful Waiting" Here is what Mr. Hughes’ running mate said in a speech in Indianapolis in August, 1913, fully indorsing Wilson’s atitude toward Mexico: “I have no doubt that the dis turbances in Mexico during tho last few years have been due, in a greater or lessor decree, to an effort on the part of ambitious, cunning men to force interven tion and possibly annexation to the United States. “The exploiters of public util ities and of the mineral and ag ricultural resources of our neighbor have undoubtedly thought that they would gain much if they could force inter vention by the United States. "Sensationalists are adding to the confusion of the situation and making more difficult the solu tion of the problem. Interven tion in Mexico, is, of course, not a matter to be considered light ly; FOR INTERVENTION MEANS WAR, and war means destruction of human lives and the expenditure of hundreds of millions of dollars. “It means, furthermore, the responsibility of the government of 20,000,000 people for an indef inite period. We are now en gaged in governing 10,000,000 alains as a result of the Spanish American war —a .war which could very probably have been averted if we could have exer cised a little patience, patriotism and self-restraint. A War for Speculators If our speculators in Mexico suffer pecuniary loss as a result of the recurring revolutions, 1 that is a matter for further con sideration, when stable govern- i ment and peace are established I in that country. It is not war rant for the shedding of the , blood of Americans. j To sacrafice the life of one soldier for all the dol lars investers or specula tors have ventured in Mexico would be the supremest crim inal folly. i President Wilson is dealing with the situation as best he can. We may not entirely agree that his course is better than that of his distinguished predecessor, nevertheless we should endeavor to hold up his hands. It is not an hour for either lit tle Dolitics or sensational journal ism. The clamot of the jin goes should not be allowed to drown the rational, deliberate 'Statesmanship. ! The president of the United States is a safer guide than sen sationalists and the soldiers of fortune who come to the sur face whenever international con troversies arise!” Obituary Mrs. Lillian Brackney, nee Lindsey, was born in Ohio Oct. 14, 1850, and died in Springfield Oct. 1,1916. Her parents moved to Craw ford, county, Kans., about 1870, where Miss Lillian was convert, ed and joined the Church of God, she remaining a faithful church worker up to the time of her death. Sbe was married io Crawford county, and in 1887 she and her husband moved to Baca county where she has since lived. Mrs. Brackney leaves two nephews, John Meyers of Salida and Ed. Meyers of Nevada, this state, and one niece, Mrs. Tom Oxenreiderof North Flats. Most of the old timers had a personal acquaintance with Mrs. Brackney, and all feel a personal loss in her'death. May those who are left behind live so as to meet the dear one in a land where parting will be no j more and sorrow does not come. FOR SALE—Dandy bunch of R. I.
