Monday, April 29th-Norma Talmadge in "THE LAW OF COMPENSATION.” Seven Reels.
This is the picture that we had on the 29th of last month. The night of the Big Rain. Very few people had an opportunity to see
this wonderful fiim-hence its return. We especially invite all who are skeptical in regard to moving pictures. This film, without
doubt, teaches a very valuable lesson of morality and chastity. Ask some of your friends, who saw this picture, about it and we
know you, also, will see it. 10 AND 25 CENTS. MAJESTIC THEATRE, OKEENE, OKL.A.
Read What Uncle Sam Has to Say.
During the past few days the Democrat has receiyed an unusual
amount of publicity matter in plate form, from various departments
of the United States Government, such as the Food Adminstration
Fuel Commission, and Liberty Loan Committee. The govern-
ment does not require us to publish this, but we are anxious to
do so for several reasons. In the first place we wish oui readers
to keep themselves fully informed concerning all phases of
government activity. Secondly, the U. S. Government has spent a
goodly sum of money to .furnish the publishers of the country
this matter in a form most available for quick and easy use,
since the type does not have to be set. In the third place we
do not feel like p'ugging type this week anyway, on account of
the grind of issuing our big twenty-eight page Advancement
Number last week.
We hope that all of our readers wid read every line of the
government publicity matter in this issue. It was wiitten by
men much more capable than this editor, men who know whereof
they speak. Sc far as the quality is concerned this will probably
be the best edition of the vear.

Save Time and Money- -
Great Wheat Stocks
It’s the shortage In ships that
Is putting the Allies and the
United States on wheat rations.
Great stocks of wheat are iso-
lated In India, and Australia. At
great sacrifice In ship space and
use the Allies are forced to se-
cure some wheat from Argentina.
On January 1, Australia had
stored 100,000,000 bushels of
wheat that was ready for ex-
port—but there were no ships.
Then came the new crop with
an exportable surplus of 80,000,-
000 bushels. Now Australia lias
approximately 180,000,000 bush-
els waiting for ships.
India, at the same ttme, had
70.000. 000 bushels of wheat
stored for export. During April
50.000. 000 bushels more out of
the new crop will be added to
Argentina closed the last ship-
ping season with 11,000,000
bushels of wheat left In the
stock available for export. The
new crop will add 135,000,000 to
the left over.
It Is not a problem that the
wheat does not exist In the
world—it Is entirely a problem
of shipping, which has thrown on
America the obligation of divid-
ing our stock with the Allies.

N (TTY and country more war gardens are needed this year
than ever before. Patriotism prompted 2,000,000 Americans
to plant gardens last year, according to estimates of the
United States Department of Agriculture. Transportation
facilities of the ration will lie strained this year hauling muni-
tions of war and foods for the Allies. The surplus food cre-
ated by home gardens will help in the railroad problem. And
the nation will eat less of the goods we must export—wheat,
meat, fats and sugar. Every hoy and girl that helps with the
garden is helping win the war. Leaflets of instruction in
garden making may he secured from the Department of Agriculture at Waah
uigtoii, upon request, without charge.

T. S. Waller left Monday of this
weekforClay Center,Kansas, in re-
sponse to a telegram, informing
him of the death o f his wife’s
mother, Mrs. T. J. Mann, on the pre-
vious day. Mrs. Waller had left
some days before and was at the
bedside of her mother at the time
of her death.
Mrs. Mann had only recently
gone to her daughter’s home in
Salina, Kansas, after visiting with
Mrs. Waller for several weeks.
When she left here she was very
ill and her condition did not im-
prove after her arrival home.
She was 78 years of age and had
suffered for some time with heart
trouble. The remains were ship-
ped to Clay Center, Kansas, and
she was buried beside the grave
of her husband.
Mrs. Mann was a woman of
Christian character and high ideals
She was devoted to her children
and will live long in their memory
as a kind and loving mother.

were united in marriage in this
city, the ceremony being perform-
ed by Judge Guild. Miss Martin

j and elsewhere in the county.
For the present Mr. and Mrs.
Edmonson have aecured rooms
at Mrs. Guild’s
Abe Baker is driving a new
Buick, purchased recently from
the local Buick Agenc.y
If you weren’t in the know,
you would not suspect that the
Let’s Eat Cafe has had no boss the
greater part of this week. The
young ladies in charge, Miss Elsie
Nusz, Mary Weber and Ruth
Shaffer, have had their hands full,
having to look after both ends of
the business. But they have
made such a splendid “drive” that
any patrons who kicks should be
tarred and feathered. The truth
of the matter is, however, there
has been no complaint heard, for
there has been no room for com-
Frank Drake, Editor of the
Hitchcock Clarion, was a business
j visitor in Okeene Tuesday.
New regulations have been
made by the Government regard- i
ing custom milling. Any one who (
gets his own wheat ground may
have on hand flour enough to do
himself and family until the new
wheat is ready for flour, at the
six pound rate already designated
by the Regulations.
