out the residence districts. So, also
do chickens, and each and every
chicken has the usual accompaniment
of scratching equipment with which

wrought to tho gardens of the wom

jority of the female population of the
city of Ardmore are waxing wroth
and very indignant over the manner
in which the chickens of the neigh
bors are being permitted to run at
large, to fly over picket fences and
to grub for worms and 'licious seeds
while whole families are devouring
"Boston Tiaked" and smacking their
lips in anticipation of the coining of
the day when the toothsome potato
will hustle the green string beans In
an effort to send the tinned vegeta
bles to the scrap heap for a sum
And being wroth and justly so
the ladies who own and control well
equipped gardens of button hole bou
quets and boiled dinners state that
they will jointly and severally com
bine to see that the "chicken ordi
nance" 1s enforced. This ordinance
Is known as: "Ordinance No. 131,"
and reads: "An ordinance prohibit
ing trespass for domestic fowls in
the city of Ardmore, and providing
ajenalty and declaring an emergne

and passed over one year ago. It
provides that any owner of domestic
fowls may suffer or permit the said
fowls to run at large but they shall
see to it that they do not molest or
disturb the property of anyone else
A fine of twenty-five dollars is pro
vlded for violation" of the provisions

Democratic Nominee For Mayor is At
tacked No Imprint or Lube!.
A c'.rcular without imprint or label
is being distributed over the) city
today attacking W. R. Ru'.'ert.i, the
democratic nominee lor mayor. It
may be said to tho credit of the
newspapers and of the print shops in
Ardmore that e.icli had an opportu
nity to print and each refused to
have their shops used for the purpose
of allowing one citizen to attack an
other. Hie eliect of the circular will
be in favor of Mr. Roberts, tho man
who is attacked. Ills friends ar.i
more lo:il as a result. Those who
desired to see his opponent elected
express their regrets that the circu
lar is disti United over the city an l
tho majority given the democratic
nominee will be just a little more
by reason of the publication of tho
attack made upon him in the elev
enth hour of the campaign. Mr. Rob
erts has lived in this city for 21
ears, he has been in public life a
great portion of tills time, if tho
people bail judged him ns unfit for
public otfiee ho would have not been
selected oxer the three good men

Mr. Kolierls stated today that He
vould n : Ue no reply to the circular

Ardmore or to create factions that
attempt to destroy the good that
citizens may be able to do.
This is a small community, the
greater i onion of the people who re

jears, almost everybody knoxxs every
body else. Our opinions of public

Mr. Koberts entered tho primary
campaign about three months prior
to the election. His announcement
was not made in the public press im
mediately, but his candidacy was
known fully that early and ho re
mained active up to the time the
votes were polled. There was plenty
of time for attacks to bo made upon
him before ho became the nominee
of the democratic party and it seems
that the. attacks now made are more
for tho purpose of criticising the
democratic party which nominated
Mr. Roberts than tho nominee.
The people of this city will ap
preciate the fact that Mr. RoberO
will not make a reply. This ci'y
will not be made a better city by
the kindling of ill feeling among
the citizenship of the town. In that
act the democratic nominee has
shown that ho has tho courage and
the judgment and a love for Ardmore
and its citizenship that fits him for
the public trust which the democratic
party is now asking for him.
