Every day that passes puts Anndarko more decidedly "On the Map." People are beginning to "sit up and take notice" when the name of "Anadarko" is
mentioned and those who are looking for business locations homes or other investments in Oklahoma stop and put their finger ori "Anadarko" as thoy
scan the map. Its coming and coming rapidly. Now the citizens of Anadarko want to "pull together" more than ever. The now railroad lnnk tmnrl
the dam is about ready to begin furnishing cheap power and the city is forging ahead. Let's form a 20000 club and make Anadarko a city of 2oU00. It can bo done.

Want Sleeping Quarters
1 up For the Winter
The merchants aro circulating

raising funds with which to fix up
the temporary Are quarters so that
tho boys trav bo'ablo to occupy them
uurjng tho rr inter months. Some
iU;eks ago tho citv council refused to
Appropriate n sum for that purpose
and tho Mayor then stated that unless
something was dono he would bo und-
er the necessity of sending tho fire
boys to thoir homes at night as it
was impossible for them to occupy
the quarters during cold weather.
Such an arrangement would so Impair
tho efficiency of tho department that
tho morchantfl havo decided to 'under-
take to ralso tho amount required
about $100 and fit up tho house so
that tho boys may sleep at tho head-
quarters until the city hall fight h

SPOKANE Wush. O. t. 20. -John
P St. John formerly governor of
Kansas who has como to Spokane to
begin thn fighl for prohibition in tho
stato of Washington mojo two pro-
dictions in tno course of an interview
"Nothing except his death will
pravent tho nomination of Thcodoro
Rooicvelt to succeed President Taft
and if ho ts not elected no other re-
publican can be.
"fen years hence there won't be a
legalized saloon within the boundaries
of this commonwealth. Spokane will
be 'dry' in fivo years from'this."
Mr. St. John said among other
things In speaking of Roosevelt and
"Thcodoro Roosnvolt is tho sharp-
est politician in tho United States.
But tor him Mr Taft never would
havo been thought of for tho presi-
dency. Rooscvolt knew Taft believed
him to be an honest man and so do
I but ho knew that Taft Is a putty
man soft putty at that. Roosevelt
helped to elect Taft. He knew that
his administration would bo a failure.
"Roosevelt went off to Africa. Ho
is not mixed up in any of tho ques-
tions beforo tho people today. In the
course of eighteen months ho will re-
turn covered with rhino hides ele-
phant tusks and glory. Tho 'howl and
yell' element in politics will raise
tho cry for Roosevelt. Tho country
will go 'wild' over him Nothing' ex-
cept his death will prevent his nomi-
nation to Buccecd Taff and if he is
not elected it will be brcauso no re-
publican could win.'
TOWN FOR SALE
Entire Kansas Village Is to Be

Saline Kun. Oct. 20. A rare
opportunity for any person desiring
to own a town was offered today
when the village of Shioton nino
miles from hero on tho Uniou Pacific
railroad was put up for sale at auc-
tion. The village is a lively bust-
ling little place with a railroad de-
pot a grain elevator half a dozen
stores postoffice churches dwellings
and all of tho otner accompaniments
of an up-to-date community.
As tho ndvertlsment rearfs the
$wner has good reasons for desiring
to sell The entire village is located
on tho big wheat ranch of W. S. Ir-
win who has mado so much money
he is oing to retire. Ab an induce-
ment to prospective purchasers Mr.
Irwin offers to throw in hs farm
machinery and a few acres of his
wheat farm to anyone who will buy
No man thoso days who Is anything

Ink. Lot o political campaign open
and how tho candidates rush Into
print to lecuro the gieateut amount
of publicity. Let a public measure be
to the interest of some person or com-
munity and how the aid of the press
U secured. Tho very offorts to sub-
sidizo tho press and tho vast amounts
expended in some quarters for this
purposo are proofs of this. Tho idea
Is to cducatetho people to this idea.
But education is not accomplished In
a day or a week. It takes persistent
persovering effort. Tho Democrat is
seeking to educate some 7600 people
along somo lines. Would you like It

it isn't wo'd rather not mention It.

Considering tho incloment weather
tho opening of tho theatrical season
at tho Dietrich Monday night was
certainly gratifying to the manage-
ment. "A licit Boy" company being
greeted with a large audience and
the performauce was all and cvan
more than had been promised for it.
Tho play had only enough plot upon
which to trend the musical numbers
and the really clever comedy work was
of Johnny Galvln as "A Bell Boy"
but the whole performance went with
a dash and merry making movements
that wis pleasing. Tho costuming
was correct the scenic effect elabor-
ate the tableaux protty the chorus
shapely and tuneful and as a whole
tho performance was the best musical
comeJy nver seen in this city. Miss
('alvin made a hit as Cupid riding on
a huge electrical moon and again in
her appearance in a floral automobile.
Tho next attraction at tho Dietrich
will bo "Tho Tiger nd tbo Lamb"
on next Tuesday night.
An Excellent Show.

injunction suits brought by tho rail-

enforcement of either a 2 cent t a

road companies at onco secured an in-
junction. Before this case could be

unqualified 2 cent faro lnw but this
also was enjoined by the railroad
companies nnd by order of Judge
Carland of tho Federal court this
case was combined with that for n
2 1-2 cent fare.

The Democrat Is no moro an object
of charity than it is n charitable in-
stitution. It seeks to ndvertiss tho
town and her business men for its
own profit as woll as for theirs And
if tho advertising doos not pay tho
advertiser it prefars that ho quit ad-
vertising. It is purely n question of
valuo received. And in its own inter-
est and that of Its patrons it will
sco that thoir advertising pays so far
as in it lies.
Tho man who supposos that tho
money ho pays for his adrortising is
a donation or a charitable contribu-
tion is n blankety-biank well name
it. And ho livoi next door to tho
foliovy who says that advertising
Thoso apoios are n bargain that B
