FRIDAY APRIL 8 1921.
A PROMISE FULFILLED.
The Ardmoreite la a ' fair-minded
paper a paper which desires to see
equal justice done to all persons and
all parties in all thinjrs.
Being a fairpapor it endeavors to
handle the news both local and tele-
graph in an; Impartial manner while
its editorial fcollcy calls for an honest
j and just expression of opinion In all
things upon all matters and on all
Such being the case we feel that the
spirit of justice should prompt this
; paper speaking editorially to thank
In behalf of the Democrat party of
Ardmore the Republicans of this com
munity for the manner in which as in
dividuals they kept their word and
helped the Democrats put across the
ticket at the late election.
Months ago representative Repub
licans assured the Democrats of Ard
more that' if the Democrats put out
a clean ticket with a personnel of
strong upstanding men they as the
members of the party of the opposition
would not work to down it but would
do all that could consistently be done
to bring about its election.
The returns from Tuesday's election
shows that this promise was not made
of empty words but that It was a prom-
ise made to be kept a promise which
In thanking the Republicans of Ard-
more for demonstrating the fact that
they meant what they said we feel
' that It would not be Inopportune at
this time to urge upon the Democrats
the great political good which can be
accomplished through letting this
nerve as an object lesson a lesson
which will' prompt the leaders of the
city's Democracy to continue at each
succeeding election to nominate only
men who are of proven worth and un
questioned Integrity and business abil-
ity. THIS HAS A MORAL.
Charging Incompetence and Ineffi-
ciency with hints at mal administra-
tion the Oklahom.m took an active
part In the recent municipal election

-Oklahoma City last Tuesday the in-
fluence which can be exerted for good
and which properly nppli-Hl leads the
masses of voters to respond to th
general call for clean politics.
If there was a machine in Oklahoma
City that machine Is broken. If there
was a ring of machino politicians In
charge of Oklahoma City's affairs that
ring no longer exists. And the break-
ing of the machine the rending of the
ring was made possible through and
by the war which the Oklahoman
The day of machine politics Is passed.
The day of power fur political rings
Is now history. The lirxiest votes of
honest lntentioned men and women
supplant the votes of the ward-lueU-rs
and repeaters In evwy city in every
county in every rtute and purity In
politics coupled with efficiency will
roan develop to such an rxtnDt that
all efforts to elert officers worthy or
unworthy through gag rule will be

ed the entire lraocratic ticket. The
Republicans practically offered no ex-
position. Months ago the P.i publicans
of this city told th-ir Democrat com-
patriots that they would help elect a
clean ticket Ardmore Democrat put
out a clean ticket and the Ri publicans
kept their word.
The outcome In Oklahoma City with
th outcome in Ardmore afford a
moral which those Interested in BUte
politics might do well to heed.

Working in the interests of the gtn-
eneral community working in un un
selfish effort to aid in the accomplish-
nient of tho greatest good for the great-
est number of Deoole. the nrwtmawis
all over the country have been during
the past several months devoting con-
siderable editorial space to urging the
people of the different communities
throughout the country to "own your
The dailies In the larger cities and
the weeklies in the smaller communi-
ties have joined in this matter until
there now seems to be a nation-wide
and well directed campaign being con
ducted in the home-ownership line.
We havo had the good fortune to
read many able editorials upon this
subject editorials penned by some of
the best writers upon some of the
best newspapers. But one of the
strongest appeals for home-ownership
we have read is contained In an adver-
tisement carried In a small town week-
ly by a local lumber dealer.
This dealer is located in a small
place not a hundred miles from Ard-
more. The entire population of the
town were a census taken tomorrow
would fall below one thousand inhabi
tants. The population of the trade
territory contributory to that town
must be comparatively small yet the
lumber dealer a wido-awake man real
izing that he can do good devotes a
few of his dollars to space to be used
in the "small town p'iper" for the gen-
In urging home-ownership upon his
neighbors this man says in part:
"The home feeling Is an asset of the
highest value for it pays richly in a
sense of self respect of more respon-
sible citizenship of moral poise as a
member of the community besides giv-
ing profound personal satisfaction and
enriching the spiritual values that
arise out of family ties and affections.
Taken all In all you can make no other
Investment that is so rich in returns
both sentimental and practical as ii
having your own home."
Tcthaps it the floods of Western Okla-
homa had have come in time they might
have been strong enough to wash away
all the sins of the house of representa-
tives. The state observer says that n"
peaches and plums and apples and
pears havo been killed. A local ob-
server says they are not. Time will
settle the point in controversy.
The eighth general assembly r.f the
state of Oklahoma is a thing of the
past. The hope for provision for the
disabled Oklahoma soldiers may be
classed In the Fame list of things Which
might have been.

PLANS UNDER WAY
TO REPEAL EXCESS
Washington April 8. Rupgestlons as
to the means of raising the four bil-
lion dollars of revenue necessary for
the conduct of the national govern-
ment durinit the next fiscal year will
be sent to congress early ne.t week
Secretary Mellon said today. Discus-
sion of sources which may be tapped
by the new tax pnrgrum will be con-
clude! probably Saturday by the treas
ury secretary and his sturr or au-
visers. Thus far It was stated definite de-
cision has been reached on only one
question repeal of the excess profits-1
tax. Mr. Mellon has not decided wnat
form of levy will supplant It.
It appeared that no determination
has been reached regarding redemp-
tion of the so-called floating debt or
short term treasury certificates of In-
debtedness totaling around J2 770. 000-
i'00 In other than the present fashion
of re-issuing certificates. This phase
of federal financing as well as the
retirement of J 1.1 00000.000 in victoty
notes due in two years Is regarded
as being Inseparably linked with the
Action on the certificate payment
and maturing victory notes may be
left for determination by congress In
connection with the disposition of the
great wartime debt which it has been
proposed to fund into long term londs.
Former Secretary Houston had plan-
ned to rnenjo the victory notes Into
a floating debt to be retired as are
tiie certificates of Indebtedness but
sentiment in congress for a funding
of thn entire outstanding debt may
bring a change In that arrangement.

Lima beans are those things you
have to train on long poles once
they start growing. Because they
do twine and spread out you must
allow about 3 feet of space between
rows. Set out the seeds about the
first of May. Plant them in a placa
where the sun will strike the sprouts
all through the day.
Wax bean plants grow closer to

"I'LL 'STICK UP FOR
THE NEWSIES" HE SAYS
Irving Slown is seventeen and a
newsboy with a "corner" at Broad-
way and Thirty-fourth streets New
York City. One day recently some
one had him taken before Magis-
trate McQuade of New York and
charged him with "making an un-
usual and improper noise to the
inconvenience of the pedestrians"
passing his stand.
"It's perfectly ridiculous to bring
up cases like this" said the Magis-
trate after he had listened to the
testimony. "And furthermore a
newspaper boy with his cries of
'extra' is a public benefit instead of
a nuisance." Is there a newsboy
amongst us who doesn't agree?
Look at the too card of a deck of
cards. Let us suppose it is the ace
of spades. Place it face out at the
back of the deck. Hold the pack be-
fore your audience with the faces
forward. In this position you can-
not see what the top card of the deck
Say: "The top card is the acc of
spades. Am 1 not right?" Of course
you aren't for the ace of spades is
at the back of the deck.
Pretend to have made a mistake.
Put the deck behind your back and
say : "The next card I will show you
will be the ace of spades."
While you hold the cards behind
your back bring the ace of spades
to the front of the deck so that when
you hold the pack up that caid will
be in sight of the audience. Then
turn the bottom card which we'll
suppose is the ten of hearts over so
that when you hold the deck before
you you can see what it is.
Bringing the pack in front again
say: "Now isn't the top card the ace
of spades?" They'll agree that it is
and you glancing at the back card to
see what it is say: "And the next
I show you will be the ten of hearts."
Bring the pack behind your back
again shift the bottom card to the
front turn over the last card and
again allow the audience to see the
front of the deck. .
T'eep this up for a short time only
for the trick is easily discovered.
