Brown wood Fair In November.
The fair committee appointed
by the citizens of Brownwood
has fixed the dates of the fair
for November 5-6-7. This will
conflict with no local affairs of a
similar nature the nearest event
being the San Antonio Fair.
The committee has decided to call
the meeting the Brown County
Stock and Poultry Show. It is
however to be as near a fair as
so late a start will permit. Ar-
rangements will be made with big
attractions and there will be a fall
carnival in connection with the
fair. There will be a good pre-
mium list and large purses for the
various races. Dr. E. E. King
has been appointed as manager of
the poultry department and offi-
cials will be appointed later.
The committee which is solicit-
ing subscriptions is meeting with
considerable ^encouragement, and
from present indications the af-
fair will be a great success. The
date is at a very pleasant time of
the year, and conditions are es-
pecially favorable to racing and
to the showing of poultry and
stock. The Leader wishes the
Brownwood people all possible
success in this event.
Weatherford 4—Lampasas 3
The crippled Lampasas team
was defeated Wednesday at
Weatherford by the crack team of
that place by a score of 4 to 3.
From the account given by Mc-
Henry who is home, having been
disabled by a broken finger, the
team is in no condition whatever
to play. McBride was picked up
at Abilene and about all he can
do is to stop the ball for the pitch-
er. Eagan, who has been ap-
pointed captain by Manager No-
ble, will not allow him to attempt
to throw to a base. This of course
makes it [possible to steal bases
very easily. Mooney is playing
first with a badly sprained hand,
Tiernan has such a bad knee that
he cannot run at all, Farquhar has
a broken finger, Humphreys, the
new infielder, is sick and the team
generally are in poor shape.
They have yet two games to play
at Weatherford before returning.
Considering their poor condition,
they have played remarkable ball
all their victories and defeats
having been won and lost by

The union camp meeting held at Tay-
lor’s Grove closed Sunday night. There
has never been a more largely attended
more orderly or more successful meet-
ever held at Topsey. - There were
four ministers present: Rev. O. C.
Sweeny, of Copperas Cove; E, Thomp-
son, of Lometa; C. B. Roberts, of Me-
nardville and T. A, Leach of Lampasas,
Revs. Sweeney and Leach did most of
the preaching, though Rev Ed. Thomp-
son preached very acceptably several
times, and rendered valuable assistance
in other ways. Rev. C. B. Roberts who
is on a visit to his daughter, Mrs. S. S.
Fillmon, is well known in this section
was on the camp grounds nearly all the
time and cheerfully aided the ministers
in charge. Miss Frieda Krempine pre-
sided at the organ and was untiring in
her services. Miss Missinger and Mrs.
Frank Harmon rendered valuable as-
sistance. There were thirty conver-
sions, twenty additions to the Methodist
church, and five to the Presbyterian,
several of the converts going to other
churches The Methodists have deter-
mined to build a house of worship and
for that purpose raised over $800 Sun-
day afternoon. The Baptist people are
also raising funds for the erection of a
church and the German Lutherans have
already begun and will soon have their
There was a Sunday school rally at
the camp ground Sunday at 8 p. m. con-
ducted by the superintendent, Dr. J. D.
Read. Revs. Sweeny, Leach and
Thompson made short addresses on sev-
eral phases of the Sunday school work
which interested all present. The spir-
it of harmony that prevailed assures
the success of the union Sunday school.
There were camped on the grounds
the families of Jas. Morgan, Albert
Nelson, John Brown, Luther Harmon,
Scott Garner, Wm Leslie, Bill Walker,
W. S. and Tom Archie, W. Y. Norred,
Geo. West and Mrs. Ben Terry. These
all dispensed their hospitality with a
lavish hand and every visitor was made
welcome. This meeting will long be
remembered not only for the number
saved but for the spirit of harmony

Quite a crowd of country peo-
ple came to town Wednesday
evening to get fresh news from
the local election and the state
democratic convention. In the
former they were successful, for
within an hour after the polls
were closed the returns were all
in, but the democracy seems to
be practicing the science of de-
lay, and nothing was done Tues-
day or Wednesday more than to
adopt the platform and make
some speeches. But speeches
are the principal part of a dem-
ocratic convention, and the great
men make names and votes there.
