  Sooner  \Soon"er\,  n. 
  In  the  western  United  States,  one  who  settles  on  government 
  land  before  it  is  legally  open  to  settlement  in  order  to  gain 
  the  prior  claim  that  the  law  gives  to  the  first  settler  when 
  the  land  is  opened  to  settlement;  hence  any  one  who  does  a 
  thing  prematurely  or  anticipates  another  in  acting  in  order 
  to  gain  an  unfair  advantage.

  you  can";  "came  earlier  than  I  expected"  [syn:  {earlier}] 
  2:  more  readily  or  willingly;  "clean  it  well  preferably  with
