THE OKLAHOMA DEMOCRAT, ALTUS, OKLAHOMA
THE OKLAHOMA DEMOCRAT
JOHNSON & BONNER
Entered as second-class matter February 1.190* at the Post-
office at Altus. Oklahoma, under act of Congress Mar. 3, 1879
The Ozark Trail committee
that left here last Friday morn-
ing fox Amarillo was joined by
committees at each town along
the route. Their arrival in Ama-
rillo was celebrated by a mass
meeting of the citizens of that
city. The various committees
did considerable work with the
Amarillo bunch, but from the in-
formation at hand we are of the
opinion that Amarillo will ride
A town is no bigger than its
citizens. Wellington's commit-
tee at the Ozark Trail meeting
here last week pledged them-
selves to support the route via
Altus. No sooner than they ar-
rived home they decided to ride
the fence. We do not know, this
might be the proper thing to do,
but it seems to us that they
should at least know their minds
before they pledge themselves.
Perhaps some day Wellington
will quit pulling this small town
Mother finallv became tired of
the way daughter was acting,
and she said to her: "You never
do anything but gad about. When
I was your age I tried to take
some of the work off my poor
mother's back. I didn't want to
spend all my time with some
silly giggling girl like that chum
of yours." After listening to
this, daughter went to grandma
and said to her: "You must have
had an awfully easy time when
mamm* was growing up. She
stayed'at home almost all the
time, and helped you with the
cooking, milking, washing and
other work." Then said grand-
ma: She helped me with the
work? I'd like to know when
she helped me. Day and night,
week in and week out, she was
running around with some silly
girl, and she never once turned
her hand to help me with any-
thing. I made every stitch of
her clothes, did all her washing
and ironed every rag she ever
wore. Now, when I was a girl 1
really worked. In my time girls
didn't run around like they did
in your mother's day."—Claude

IltE liOlSE B* TO OZARK TRAIL.
(By Rev. W. L. Kendall)
Some love to live in the wild backwoods.
Where the Klaxon is still unheard.
Some delight to dwell where no motor's throb
Ever startles the singing hird.
Some pine for the sylvan solitudes
Where the touring car is seen;
But let me live by the Ozark Trail
And smell the gasoline. -
Let me live in a house by the Ozark Trail,
Where the cars go whirling by,
The sure enough cars and the little tin Fords—
What matter the make? say 1
For surely I know that where'er they go
On this smooth, hard path of shale.
They must buy fresh gas in the towns they pass
As they travel the Ozark Trail.
. I can see from my hours by the Ozark Trail
Where the motors come and go
The cars that speed forward on full high gear
And the cars that creep past on low.
And 1 see yet others that stop dead still
While the chaffuer gets out and under.
And he hammers and screws with a right good will.
And now and then swears like thunder.
Let me live in a house by the Ozark Trail
And hear how the engines roar:
For I know full well that the sound will tell
If each car is a six or a four. .
And I love the poor man's Ford Runabout
And the rich man's big limousine.
Let me live m a house by the Ozark Trail,
And smell the gasoline.

I THE PRESIDENT'S
The record of the Wilson ad-
ministration in the conservation
of our public domain and resour-
ces will meet with the cordial ap-
proval of those Americans who
have seen with regret vast areas
of public lands pass into the
(greedy hands of monopolists,
billions of tons*of coal, the prop-
erty of all the people, transfer-
| red to a favored few and other
public resources frittered away,
and who recall the frauds and
scandals that mad*' these great
national blessings a source of
nation, the needs of the future
considered and provided for and
millions of acres made available
for homestead entry.
The record is without a blur
and of marked energy and ac-
Scott Ferris, the Oklahoma
Congressman who is the author
of the new Homestead Law and
who as chairman of the House
Committee on Public Lands has
borne a most active part in the
conservation legislation of the
Wilson administration, has is-
sued an instructive review of the
Wilson record of conservation.
