A THING OF BEAUTY NEARING
Building Has a Distinguished Appear
lice on Exterior and Looks
Pleasing and Inviting De-
scriptlon of Interior.
Within the next two weeks Gurno-
Bio's now library constructed nt
cost of something over $1".000 will
be completed and ready for occu-
pancy. Tho fitilihliig touches on this
magnificent building nro being made.
The painter's brush Ib the only thins;
necessary to complete thu building.
Mr. Woodress of Harriman &
Woodress of Okluhoiun City who
have the contract for painting and
decorating the interior said yester-
day that he would bo able to finish
up within a week at the outside.
This work Is progrcbMng rapidly. Al-
ready the Interior in pleasing to the
eye and a marvel of beauty. Mr.
Woodrcss is authority for the state-
ment that Ardmoro's library Is ono
of the most modern of the country.
"Tho Carnegie library at Chlokn-
nhu docy not begin to compare with
the ono here" he said.
It was expected that the bulldlug
would bo completed some time ago.
There wore delays however which
could cot bo avoided. However there
has been lttlo complaint regarding
Tho plans of tho library were s?cn
by a representative of tho Ardmore-
ite and while differing t-onvowhat
from tho plans of other libraries
bfifj trjruugh CaracHha liberality
It may bo said that tho design equals
any of thorn from an architectural
standpoint. In some respects thero
will bo an improvement. The art!-
tlclal stone in appearance looks rich
possessing n foaturo which gives the
building a distinguished appearance.
Tho building as a whole looks pleas-
ing and inviting.
The library Is two-story the main
entrance of tho building lacing north.
TV four Imposing fluted columns
with ornamented capitals and orna-
muted frieze work Is a btriking fea
ture of the exterior and its handsome
appearance will lnstnntly attract ut-
tct!on. No less pleasing to many
U tho distinct style of colonial nr-
chUocture rather than that of tho
n-utssaneo order Its ornamental
tirchl'raws of striking appearance
which .-.urrounds tho top windows.
Thero are many points or beauty
aLwv.ii tho building equally as attrac-
Mv a a tho features mentioned. Mod--ru
in every respect there will bp
to'.hicg lacking lu Its entirety f'ir
thr- comfort and convenience of tho
pw-plf. The library will bo heated
through hot air process tho plant
havlctr already been Installed In the
-lasctc ut. .
The main Interest has centered In
tlu imcrior of tho library. The llrst
floor U Mili-divideU Into nine rooms.
Tho entrance to tho main library has
a. marble ll.ior. To the left of the ou-(.-.we"
in the ehlldreu'i room and on
tie rlalit Is located the trustees'
apartment. Tho main library is lo-caU-d
just in front of the hallway
leading from the entrance. Th-j li-
brary room will contain over twenty
wclionj. Karl) section will hold over
iCfl U-ohs. or a total of 4000. To the
rffc'ht and left of the library rooms
art- '.o-aU-il the refereuce und resting

art. Tho main auditorium upstnlrj
will be ample for tho needs uf the
pjoplo anil will .supply ) JtmgdVIt
want Tho auditorium Is wiul-iped
with stiRi of fulr-slzod dimensions.
The drot'lng or preparation room-i
r. convenUctly lora'.ad to the atago

It Is not known when the library
will bo equipped with book and

Permit me the privilege of it few
words on the matter of chili member

Commercial Club for that Is ono In- f
stltutlon that vvory man who has i
confidence In his town and homo In '
teresl at heart should bo associate!
with. The record of the Commerclt
Chili .it Ardmoro U good It has
tackled and successfully too. mauy
vexing problems in tho past uud It Is
dojng tile Milne thing today. Our
president is :i man of eojl uud con-
sorvatttc teiupcraiucnt. ami all hi
acts in ills ofilclnl onpuelty are heart
ily endorsed by the club. Ardtnorc
has many moil yo busIno.-H men j
who do not hold membership hi tU J
Commercial Club but they should
even but for their own linerest. Anl-I
niori' commercial riuu is noi as
largo as It should be. A city the size
of Ardmoro sliould have at least'
membsrs nioro thnn now appear on
the roll. Ardmoro would their hs
nhlo to eiitertnlu prominent visitor
in princely style lleceiitly the Com -
merclal Club with tho Klka the ma
jorlty of the lntt-r nro also members
of the former have done some excel-
lent work In the matter of entertain-
ing and thero Is plenty more to do.
In order lo participate In those ?n
tertainiuunts It .Is necessary that one
bolongs to ono or the other of these
organizations nils Ik certainly vcryllcar c.c was entirely demol-
proper for to gain admission to a
Masonic or auy otiier lodge you must
lie a moiub'.T thereof. Yet there are
those who leem ti look at matters
differently and while not u member
of Uthcr club do not hosltnto in go-
ing themselves and tnklng their fani-
lie's along to such entertainments.
The only way to obviate this seems
to bo by nduilsslou by card and I un-
derstand this method is to ho em-
ployed In the future. It Is well. Let
those who dunce pay tho tiddler. Itc-
member tho Commercial Club has no
use for drones. If you would become
