Ai $ o'clock ihis morning twice as many exhibits had been entered at the county fair as were entered two years aga the date of the last fair held in Ada. These entries were being supplemented constantly by a continuous stream of entries coming in from every part of the county. The biggest fair ever held in this county is now on. Possibly the busiest man in Pontotoc County today is Prof. Pollock of the Ada High School, who is taking the numerous entries. He was literati} swamped with work thru the morning hours. Entries are advertised to close at 4 o’clock this afternoon. The fullest department at noon was the live stock department, especially the cattle division. Some of the finest cattle ever seen in this section of Oklahoma have been entered The best specimens seen in the cattle row are Holsteins, Jerseys, Herefords, and Durhams. A feature of this department is a pair of twin short horn bulls sixteen months old. The poultry exhibit is showing some of the finest of birds of several varieties. Among the entries is one cock of the White Orpington strain that has taken first money at Oklahoma City and Dallas. Most of the hogs seen in the pens are Red Durocs and Poland-Chinas. A nine hundred pound Po-land-China boat is among the entries and presents a wonderful concrete illustration of the stock raising possibilities of Pontotoc county. The extremely hot weather is causing a lot of worry to the fat pigs in the exposed pens. One of the most promising departments is the exhibits of several of the rural schools of the county. A highly creditable exhibit is that of the 3rd grade of the Yanoss school. This exhibit consists of specimens of work in drawing, penmanship, numbers, and fancy work. Those interested in school work will find this exhibit well worth seeing. The Center exhibit is also a very attractive one, consisting principally of agricultural specimens, fruits, and canned goods. It also shows a fine collection of entomological specimens. The Maxwell exhibit had not been arranged this morning but had some fine material. Only two tv the business institutions of the town have thus far taken advantage of the fair to present exhibits on the fair grounds. These are the Ada Music Company and the Haynes Hardware Company. The former is showing a line of pianos, phonographs, and records and adds to the gaiety of the occasion by the rendition of musical selections. The Haynes store is showing gas ranges, cream separators, washing machines, abd incubators. Many visitors are being attracted by these exhibits. The first horse races are scheduled for tomorrow afternoon at 2 o’clock and there will be racing each afternoon thereafter during the continuance of the fair. Quite a number of race stock is on the ground from McAlester, Muskogee, Kiowa, and other towns. All the horses are running stock and some good laces are in store for those who love the track sport. Col. Greenwood LeFlore of McAlester is here with fourteen horses from his McAlester stables. Allen and Henryetta will cross bats in a three game series beginning Friday aud will play for the championship of East Central Oklahoma. These teams have been trying to scalp each other for some months and are coming to Ada to tight a finish fight. The games will be under the direction of the fa>: association, aud give abundant promise of being among the best of several seasons. The management of the fair announce that the livestock entries will be judged tomorrow afternoon in front of the grand stand. The work of judging will begin promptly at I o’clock and will probably require several hours to finish.

One of the most important ' finds” can be laid to a Hamburg professor. A marine had stolen two Cranach portraits from the imperial castle, failed to get rid of them in Berlin and finally sold them to a questionable dealer in Hamburg. The dealer approached the professor, who recognized .the canvasses, gave a check but stopped payment and notified the Finance Ministry. The paintings were thereupon con-; fiacated. There are many more not yet recovered. however, including a little) male figure iii wood dating from , 1585. a Kathariua von Bora bv an* unknown artist, also of wood, a "warrior with ladies” by Palameres, and a score of other earrings and i paintings principally by German artists. from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

Charade’ zing it as an alliance, and not a hague which "will breed wars instead i t securing peace,” the German p«ace treat}. including the league ct nations covenant, was formally reported to the senate today, by i :»* foreign relations committee with forty-five amendments and reservation* I* will b* the List great document of i‘* kind to be discussed iii the op*;* and without the confines of executive *.«-s8ion. Accompanying the* treaty was the majority report of j th* foreign relations committee, subscribed to by every republican member excepting Senator McCum-; be: ct North Dakota, explaining the am* ndments and reservations, all of which it was declared were! "governed bv a single purpose, and tha is lo guard American rights and sovereignty, the invasion of which would stimulate breaches of taith, encourage conflicts and generate wars.” The reservations propose: First unconditional right to withdraw fri iii the league. Second, declination to assume any of the obligations of the much discus ^ed article ten. "except by action of the congress of the United States. Third, reserving to the United St.ite? the exclusive right to decide what questions are within its own domestic jurisdiction. Fourth, absolute reservation of the Monroe doctrine to the judg- • ineiit of the United States alone. Th* j” acipal amendments have j a? their purpose the providing of ( equal pow* r between the United States and Great Britain in the i assembly of the league. One of the amendments gives to China instead of Japan the provide* of Shantung. Another provides) that th** United States shall , not maintain representation on tl^* various questions in which it has no concern. Other amendments principally the phraseology treaty. Thes* amendments and reservations, til* majority report says, are submitted “to preserve American independence and American sovereignty, and thereby serve the welfare of mankind.” Fears that other nations may not accept the amended covenant, the report dismisses with the following statement: “That is one thing that certainly will not happen. The other nations will accept us on our own terms, for without us their league is a wreck, and all their gains from a victorious peace art imperiled.” The Salvation Army Drive for* three thousand dollars in Pontotoc I county started off this morning with a vim that indicates that the quota will be raised during the four days of the fair with very little difficulty. . The first casualty was reported when Bill Coffman, popular hardware man of the city, invested the extravagant sum of $55.00, paying one dollar for the first doughnut sold and fifty-four dollars for the hole. This was an enormous six inch doughnut with a four inch hole, cooked by Mrs. J. C. Sparks. Mrs. Harmon Ebey made the sale. Coffin says the price of the doughnut equals a three days grocery bill and that he expects to feed his family on it for that length of time. It is said that the doughnut will equal fifty-five dollars worth of beefsteak, but it is not considered quite so nourishing. The proceeds of this sale w’ere distributed equally among the members of the third team. The second doughnut was purchased by P. A. Norris at the handsome figure of $25.00. The proceeds from this sale were divided equally among the members of the second team. The third sale was made to R. VV. Simpson, and he. too, paid $25.00 for the doughnut. The proceeds of this sale were distributed equally among the members of the first team. Since early this morning beautiful young ladies with tambourines, attired similar to the typical Salvation Army lass, have been canvassing the business district of the city, selling many doughnuts at not less than a dollar each. They are not only doing mighty good work toward raising the county quota for the Salvation Army, but they are having a good time as well. It’s a pretty “chinche}’” sort of a citizen that will turn ’em down, don’t von think? * By the Associated Presa ST. GERMAIN, FRANCE, Sept. IO.—Dr. Karl Renner, head of the Austrian delegation to the peace conference, signed the treaty of peace between the allied and associated pow’ers and the Austrian republic at 10:15 this morning.

Tty the Associated Press NEW YORK, Sept. IO.—Belgium’s beloved spiritual prince, guardian of 2,500,000 Roman Catholics in the little kingdom whose first fierce resistance stayed the German avalanche, landed in New York yesterday. He has come to thank the American people for their assistance to Belgium during the war. Cardinal Desideratus Merceir was born on November 22,    1851, in Braine d’Alleud, a village only a few miles from famous Waterloo. Typical of the heroism of King Albert’s countrymen, this physically frail but intellectually powerful prelate of the church stirred the whole world to admiration of his courage when, on the first war Christmas in 1914, with Germans everywhere in Belgium, he issued his famous Pastoral letter, denouncing the invader and urging his people to resist in these words: “Germany has violated her oath. We can neither number our dead nor compute the measure of our ruins. Occupied provinces are not conquered provinces. The authority of the invader *s no lawful authority. Therefore, in soul and in conscience, you owe it neither respect, attachment nor obedience.” Later, in protesting against the deportation of the Belgians for forced labor, he threatened Germany with "the reprobation of the civilized world, the judgment of history and the chastisement of God.” Fifteen thousand copies of the Cardinal’s letter were seized and destroyed, the printer was arrested and fined and the brave priest was kept a prisoner in his palace by order of General von Bissing “until a re-^ traction of the pastoral letter had been signed. The Cardinal not only refused to retract his statments but became even more defiant. , He was given his liberty, finally, and continued to use his voice and pen against the "mailed fist” in crystallizing world opinion against the Central Powers. All during the war, however, he was subjected to petty persecutions and his secretary and other aides were thrown into jail. He went through the bombardments of Antwerp and Malines and braved the perils of the common soldier. Cardinal Merrier was created and proclaimed a member of the Sacred College on April 15, 1907. Before that he was professor in the University of Louvain, which was repeatedly pillaged and desecrated in the war. The prelate’s distinguished service for Belgium throughout the war has been told in frequent news dispatches. Less is publicly known of his early record as a churchman. The Cardinal studied at St. Rom-bout College, Malines, and the diocesan seminary in the same place. He was ordained to |he priesthood April 4, 1874, entered the seminary at Malines in 1877 as a professor of philosophy, taking a course in theology at the University of Louvain and five years later was called to the university as professor of Thom-istic or liberal philosophy. In 1886 I Pope Leo XIII appointed him a do-i mestic prelate with the title of i Monsignor. He comes of a distinguished religious family other members of which have won honors in the church. One uncle, the Rt. Rev. Adrian Croquet, was a pioneer missionary among the Indians for thirty-eight years in the Canadian northwest. He died in Belgium in 1902 and it is the Cardinal’s wish to visit the scenes of his- uncle’s labors. Cardinal Mercier’s visit to the | United States is largely the result of importunities from all sections of the country. As President Wilson is absent from Washington, the Cardinal will pay his first respects to Cardinal Gibbons in Baltimore and visit the White House later rn his tour. According to present plans the noted Belgian prelate’s itinerary will include, besides the cities mentioned, Philadelphia. Pittsburgh, Scranton, Albany, Boston, Providence, Hartford. Springfield, Mass., Detroit, Cincinnati, St. Louis and Chicago. 8age Advice. Hank Himes says: Think twice before speaking, thrice before writing and four times before fighting.—Columbus Dispatch.

Price McKinley plead guilty in Justice Brown’s court this morning to a charge of assault and battery and was assessed fine and costs, amounting in all to $37.85. He was arraigned on a complaint charging that he “did unlawfully, willfully and wrongfully make an assault in and upon John Richardson with his fists, and did then and there by beat, bruise, wound, and injure the said John Richardson, with the wrongful and unlawful intent to do bodily harm to him, the said John Richardson.” Date Crawford of Stonewall represented the defendant. The difficulty occurred on Mill Creek, June 30. ;
