No. 26 FAIR ASSOCIATION SEARCH FOR POTASH SPAH I Buy At Home The call issued in last week's Spanish-American for a mass meeting to discuss plans for a District Fair this fall, was' res ponded to by about 25 or more citizens of the town and country at the Odd Fellows Hall Tuesday evening. R. W. Bouiware xwas chosen temporary chairman and V. Fred Ogden. temporary secretary. More than half those present were from the country neighbor hoods, and a keen interest was shown by all. After discussing plans fully, in which discussion all joined in freely, it was decided to appoint another meeting to perfect the organization, and in the mean time to get busy and figure out just wht we want to do and what can be done. A committee of three was ap pointed to formulate plans, esti mate the cost and figure out re sources and present a report at the next meeting. This commit tee consists of W. Frank Wnlko wiak, H. Goodman and F. S. Brown. An interesting address by the chairman and ' a .communication from the promoters of the Chau tauqua at Mountainair and the proposed New Mexico auxiliary to the International Dry-Farming Congress was read and discussed. The meeting adjourned to con tinue planning for a permanent organization next Wednesday af ternoon, when all citizens of this mesa aiv urged to b present and help organizo the big est and most efficient advertising scheme ever attempted here, and one that will attract more people here than any other means of exploit ing this territory. Among the plans under con templation is the forming of a stock company to raise funds, the leasing of a big corral or tent for exhibition purposes, the class ifying of exhibits and awarding of prizes, the encouragement of carnival and other entertainment features, and in general to have a modern, up-todate fair for three days, and form a perma nent institution that will afford profitable amusement "for our people, exhibit what they can raise and what they are doing here, and above all, proclaim to the outside world this truth, that this is the most favored farming section of the great Southwest. We hope and believe that all this will be accomplished this fall, that the initial steps will be taken next Wednesday, and that every live farmer on this mesa will be present. Because my interests are here. Because the community that is good enough for me to live in is good enough for me to buy in. Because I believe in transacting business with my friends. Because I want to see the goods. Because I want to get what I buy when I pay for it. Because my home dealer "carries" me when I run short. Because every dollar I spend at home stays at home and works for the welfare' of Roy. Because the man I buy from stands back of the goods. Because I sell what I produce here at home. Because the man I buy from pays his part of the town, county and state taxes. Because the man I buy from gives value received al ways. 1 Because the man I buy from helps support my school, my church, my lodge and my home. Because when ill luck or misfortune or bereavement comes, the man I buy from is here with the kindly greet ing, his words of cheer and his pocketbook, if needs be. Here I Live and Here I Buy P. P. Circle Meeting Several new members were present at the regular meeting of the Primroe Progressive Circle Friday afternoon. The meeting was in part a farewell reception to Mrs. Max II. Karlsruher, and was held at the home of the pres ident, her sister, Mrs. Herman Goodman. Important business was also transacted regarding the future activities of the Circle. Mrs. Karlsruher has been an ac tive and useful member of the Circle ever since its inception and will retain her membership even though changing her resi dence to Springer. She will be missed by all social circles in Roy but in none so much as by the Primrose ladies. The Primrose Progressive Circle and its auxil iary of young ladies have outlined much philanthropic and social work for themselves for the coming season, the public schools to be one of the beneficiaries of their efforts. S. F. Davis, of twelve miles north of town, was here Thurs day. He reports his large wheat crop is in the stack and that the yield will be as good as expected. T t The Kind We Want Wilson Morris and son, A. Waldo Morris, of Council Grove, Kansas, who arrived in Roy re cently and are stopping at Irvin Ogden, Sr.'s ranch, east of town, have located on a half section each of land nine miles south east of town, near W. H. Guth man's farm, and will soon ship their stock and other personal effects. here and locate here in future. They are from the burned-out section of Kansas, and it looks mighty good to them here. Mr. Morris, Jr., is a prominent school man, a member of the city council of his town, and of the sort of young men we need here. His father came here an invalid, but is fast losing hio claim to that distinction, and is infatuated with the country and especially with his 320 acres of it and the inexhaustible supply of limber, building stone and pas ture that surrounds it. Church Services. Elder C. E. Hunt will preach at the Roy school house Sunday, July 23d. Everybody invited to attend. Prof. L. B. Dertcher of Chi- , cago, a noted chemist, for many years in the employ of the U S. government, was in Roy Thurs day. He is at present searching, for deposits of soluble potash, and working on his own resour ces, having declined to work on a salary for the U. S. in this in stance. The recent embargo placed on export of this product by the German government, makes it especially "desirable to locate beds of the mineral in this country. The immenie deposits of ochre and other mineral ash products in this vicinity, war rant his investigation here. E. J. H. Roy is driving him about the country in his auto. S. S. Convention. The next Fifth Sunday Con vention of the Eastern Mora County Sunday School Associa tion will be held on Sunday, July 30th, at Pleasant View school house, seven miles east of Roy.

Everybody is cordially invited to come with well filled baskets and enjoy a good program, as we always do at Pleasant.
