The fair will be held about the middle of September. The fair association is in deb' several thousand    dollars,    and    it    is necessary to pay off this indebtedness before holding the fair this year. This explains the slowness rn getting out the advertising matter and the premium list. A short time ago the breeders sent out their committee to sell $6,000 worth of the fair stock They sold $1,500 in a few' hours, but topped selling as the result of some misunderstanding among the breeders themselves. The matter is now cleared up    and the will be pushed    forward ergy. The Pontotoc lair has attracted wide attention in the past. It has been very successful, both in a fi-nancial way and in spreading propaganda tor better crops and better stock. The committee to sell the stock consists of the following men: R. L. McGuyre. H.

Mr*, Gojne Dies. Mrs. Ruth Goyne, age 70 years, died at her home in Chickasha, Friday, July 18th. at 4:30 o’clock. Mr. and Mrs. Goyne were old pioneers of Ada. having lived here until three years ago when they moved to Chickasha. Mrs. Goyne has been ill for some time, and during the last six months her children have gone often to her bedside, not knowing how much longer she would ltfst, until the end came Friday afternoon. Those who survive are, her husband, and ten children, as follows: Walter Goyne. of Ada, Mrs. Ida Thomas. Alex. Oklahoma, Will, Mars and Hess Goyne, Alex, Ruff Goyne. Franks. Mrs, Abernathy, Maxwell Mrs. Carrie Drenon, Franks, Ocie Goyne, Franks, and Mrs. Ida Hall, of Tennessee. All of the children were present at the time of Mrs. Goyne’s death, except Mrs. Hall, who was ill and unable to leave home. The remains were brought here this afternoon. The funeral services will be Ijeld at the home of Walter Goyne, at o’clock Sunday. lf any person in Ada has heretofore doubted the sincerity of Evangelist Ham; if any one has ever entertained any skeptcism as to whether or not he is a man of God. richly endowed with the spirit and possessed of the courage of his Conv ic t ions; if any one. in tact, has entertained any fear of the successful outcome of the revival, all such q fears, doubts and suspicions were removed I rom the minds of at least all those who heard the sermon last ' nignt on Simon Peter, and who wit- * nessed the dramatic close of the ser- r vice.    !    © The caustic arraignment of back- n sliding church members and the fearful lashing of hypocrites in high; ^ places, interspersed with the witic-isms of the speaker, held the audi- © ence at breathless attention for over a an hour. Then came the whirlwind climax, the style of which is peculiar to no other minister in the world but Rev. Ham, at the close of which there was scarcely a dry eye in the audience of over two thou- 0 enterprise *    people.    o w ith en- immediately at the conclusion of, ^ the last sentence of the sermon the^ evangelist and Mr. Ramsay launched ■ into the singing of one of the most , touching religious hymns yet heard Ut the tabernacle. While this song was in progress, and while ever> minister on the platform, the evange j list himself included, and the great majority of the audience as well, were Quivering with emotion, the* evangelist called every minister lo * the platform to join him in the finish of the song, in a hand shaking and in a special prayer for the ministry. It was a most dramatic and intensively heart touching finish of a great service and marks the beginning of the fall of the fortifica- ( tions of the Devil in this commun-; tty it a prophes> can be indulged a' this juncture. Peter Wan Backslider. I .ast night the evangelist reau two texts, namely, ‘ Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God,” and a few chapters farther along, ‘And immediately he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man’.” The first quotation is the words of Sinton Peter, then the Lord s favored disciple, afterwards the great apostle. And the last Quotation is from the same man. Since uttering the first gseat confession, Peter had become backslidden and didn t know it.

He took a passage of    scripture as    a    climax rather    than    a text: “Be    not    drunk with wine wherein is excess, but be filled with the Holy Spirit,” and talked    for    a time on    the    office work of the Spirit in this the dis-• pensation of the Holy Ghost. He said: “This is the special era of the Holy Spirit. God the Father thinks, God the Son speaks and God Holy Spirit performs in this and in some measure in all ages.

We judge from a page spread on the treatment of wealthy Indians that the Ada News is not very enthusiastic over the policy of the Indian department of the government. Here are a few of its terse paragraphs: “To be worth half a million dollars and go hungry.” ”To have a monthly income and be unable to give a Christmas present to a grandchild.” “To have twenty-one oil wells and not be permitted to purchase her own bread.” “To carry water from a creek 300 yards away, and not permitted to pay for the drilling of a well.” “To have three gas wells at her door and unable to pay for- piping gas into ber home.” “To have cattle and hogs dying for feed and refused permission to pay for food with her own money.” “No. this was not in barbarous Russia or in the occupied regions of Belgium. It is in Pontotoc county, whose boys have died for the freedom of the world.” “Not according to the order of some Prussian prince-let, but by the wish and will of the Indian bureau at Muskogee.”- Tulsa World. o o o © c © ©r o © v. e ©I © OI © ©: ©i ©! ©I ‘°i ©!

The employees of Simpson’s Surprise Store enjoyed another outing yesterday evening when they packed themselves in Jim Couch’s truck and hied away to a meandering creek near Byng, where they drank freely of the pure ozone of the country air and consumed all of the eatables that the numerous baskets held. Those who comprised this party were:    Mr. and Mrs. Harkrider, Mrs. Hays, Mrs. King, Misses Buna Nolan and Lenna Hardin, Mrs. McBroom andMessrs. Ottie Lindsay, Virgil Aulds, Hicks Smith and Joe Cole. Coming Wednesday, July 23, Hilly Burke in “Good Gracious, Anna belle,” Liberty Theatre. Taking twro fe- the male charuses, one mixed chorus a&e and the Cruz-Schreiber orchestra consisting of ten instruments. The program was opened by four selections from the orchestra. These were well received. In the orchestra were three violins, piano, two cornets, clarinet, and drums. Mr. Cruz with the clarinet, Mr. Schreib-er with the violin and Miss Campbell at the piano continued to play throughout the performance. # There wrere about IOO young men and women In the choruses, all of whom were seated on the be- stage. About fifteen men were included. Miss Keller directed the singing with the exception of the thirteenth song, which was led by Miss Campbell of Henryetta, who has been assisting Miss Keller during the summer term. The program was a choral interpretation of the great war and on the printed program was a poetic text connecting the songs. The poems were taken from the works of the great American poet, Walt Whitman. The first number sung by the chorus was the Belgium National song. “La Bravanconne.” As the song opened an East Central boy wearing the uniform of the Belgian soldier and carrying a large Belgian flag, walked onto 4he platform. This was followed by the French National song, “La Marseillaise.” with a poilu hearing the French colors marching in. Then came the British soldier and flag, while the chorus sang “Rule. Brit-tania.” After the British song came the Garibaldi War Hymn of Italy, and a man with the Italian flag. This part of the program was followed by an American cotn-! coming in to the tune of the “Mar Spangled Banner.” and bearing the American flag, the Red, White and Blue. This created an inspiring scene* and the applause was tremendous. The next number on the program was singing the great war song of 1918, “The Americans Come.” Thi3 song becomes more famous with each passing day and musicians say ii will live in history as one of tho great songs brought forth by the war. Last night was the first time this song had been sung in Ada by a chorus, and in so excellent a manner was it rendered that it was much more enjoyable than when given by a soloist. Following the singing of “The Americans Come,” a British soldier armed with a British rifle came onto the stage while the chorus sang    “The British    Jack.”    This was follower    by an    American    com- ! ing in with hi* complete uniform and gas mask while the chorus sang    “We’ll    Never Let Our    Old 1 Flag Fall.” Other songs on the pragram were “America’s Message,” “Souls of the ! Righteous,” “Sink and Scatter, Clauds of War.” “Ring Out. Sweet Bells of Peace,” “Welcome, Heroes of Renown,” and “Gloria in Excel-; sis.” Of this last collection probably    "Ring    Out, Sweet Bells of Peace,” was most enjoyed, although each number was beautifully sung. The program last night was the first of the kind ever given at East Central. It was so successful that it is more than likely‘the chorus work will be one of the main features of the school in future. Misses Kellei and Campbell have done a wonderful work in the music department .his summer and especially is this proven when it becomes known that only a few of those who took part in last night’s program could read music at all. this this defending FEDERATION CALLS OFF CHODOS ED GEN KRAL* STR IK E By th* Associated Press PARIS, July Ii).
