"STAFF,TS OF GUYMON
MUST BE IMPROVED
The streets of Guymon are at the
present timp in n most abominable
condition. We understand that, much
cannot be done until tbe tax levy is
distributed a month or two hence, but
there was a petition circulated several
months aeo to pave Main street from
tbe\ Rock. Tsland Denot to the City
Hall, and our information at the time
was that, it was sitrned by practically
all of the property holders affected.
Whv would it not be a pood idea to
take un this work, wtfich was
ahandoned at this time on account of
the high eost of materials and labor?
There has been a considerable drop in
the price of all the requirements for
street paving, and there is nothing
that could be of more value to our
town tahn getting this good work
IN THE PANHANDLE
I am still insisting "on all who are
going to grow a garden to look well
to their seed boxes, and not to de-
pend on buying plants, for two rea-
sons: Flrrt, they are water pulped
to give them size, and it is quite
common to lose half of them in the
hill. Secondly, if they grow they are
long stalked, often growing five or
six feet long with fruit far apart
and only one or two tomatoes to the
bloom stem. Perhaps you have
heard a neighbor say he had the fin-
est tomatoe patch in the neighbor-
hood, with vines seven feet long, and
sure enough he did. In cases like
this a crop is as near a failure as any
gardener could make. What he had
was an insect breeder and a worm
bed. Let me again say we are not
working for size, but fruit. Never
let your vines grow more than two
and one-half feet, while two feet is
long enough. This is why I prefer
the tree variety, as they are short
stalked, stand up well, make very
uniform fruit when properly handled
and never have to be pruned. They
mature from five to eight tomatoes
from bloom stem. T am sure they
are the best variety for the ljpnhan-
dle. So let us hard stem the plants
in the boxes, and all who can should
cold wframe, as the plants will be at
least two weeks earlier then where
Next we will discuss the vine to-
mato. There are many varieties
with many names. Thev all want to!
"make vine, and if you doubt it. crive
them their way, an it takes time and
labor to fo over them when thev be-
ein to bloom. At this stage there
will bo a fork making two proncs.
and let me ,caution you to be'careful
and follow directions as one .prong
is the main stalk. The other is known
ns the water sprout, ^o distinguish
them, look close, and you will see a
little^bloom stem on each stalk. The
one that is closest to the fork is the
main stalk, and the other must be
broken off. or cut off with a knife.
As the stalk prows at the next bloom
vou will find it will have- two proncrs
as before, and should be treated the
same way. Go over the vines twice
each, week, and prune at the fourth
bloom. Pinch out top above "bloom
and leaf. Keep all water sprouts
pulled off stalks until fruit in top is
half grown, then you may stop prun-
ing, If you set your fruit well as T
will explant later, you may drive
stake down four inches from hill anl
tie vine to top of stake below top
bunch of fruit. The amount of frrtit
depends on the variety. I prefer the
Acme as they grow four to seven
r'ce nniform tomatoes to the stem.

finite <\o firm. The Farlvana will
ptow a great number to the bunch,
but' not as uniform in size

TYRONE VOTES FOR
■ $42,000 HIGH SCHOOL
H. Asher and Guy Speakman were
ih Guymon Monday, conferring with
Oounty School Superintendent W. A.
Martin. They brought the good"word
that the election held in that town
last Saturday, on the question of vot-
ing $30,000 bonded indebtedness for a
new high school building was carried
by a vote of 108 to 7 against. This
school district already had $12,000 on
hand, and it is proposed to put up a
structure, that will cost $42,000, which
with the present reduced prices of
Tmilling material, will afford Tyrone This art,cle is,witten ahead of ?;Sn n. m. June 7th, hold a night

As the warm days of spring approach,
it is natural to wish for a change, for
something different to relieve that
sameness which in many homes actually
grinds upon us and almost destroys our
appreciation of the beautiful things we
see in the homes of others.
You have the OPPORTUNITY to
make your home pleasant, and attrac-
tive to your children.
A well furnished home is remembered
with pleasure by every visitor to that
home and such is praised repeatedly
The COST is TRIFLING when we com-
pare the comfort and convenience to
the discomforture of a half furnished
home, repeatedly shifting from room to
room, never having the* satisfaction
which exists with the feeling of a com-
fortably^ furnished home.
You can HAVE ONE like that.
We can help you to do ft. Want to
trade—all right—come and see us. We
probably have a customer for the piece
.you wish to change—you see, some one
else wants a change too.
