NATIVITY. 1 Greeting To Our Readers and Advertisers: 671 IE ARDMOREITE is truly thankful to its friends -L whose liberal and generous patronage has made it pos sible for us to issue the largest and most representative trade and holiday edition ever issued in the Indian Territory. This paper Will be found replete with local history. Christmas stories and general news, at the same time pre senting our readers with a list of the most progressive com mercial men and their varied stocks of merchandise to be found in Ardmore and the towns which surround us. Our grateful thanks are especially due the progressive merchants in the live towns of Berwyn, Sulphur Springs, Mill Creek, Hickory, Roff, Ravia, Oakland,' Madill and Marietta, all of whom have contributed liberally in this edition. We also sincerely thank the business men of Ardmore, ninety per cent, of whom have proven their esteem and con fidence in the Ardmoreite as. an advertising medium, by taking healthy space in these columns. The appearance of advertising is an indication that business is being done, and vthis being so shows conclusively that at the close of this cen tury tte business men of the Territory are certainly in a prosperous condition. , It is fitting also that we thank our reading patrons for the unstinted patronage which has been showered upon us during the past year. We have endeavored to furnish our readers with strictly reliable news, and at the earliest possible moment, and judging from the many new and renewal sub scribers, we feel that our labor has not been in vain. With the opening of a new century, we expect to see many changes in our city and over this goodly land. The Ardmoreite will endeavor in the future, as it has in the past, to keep in touch with everything pertaining to the good of our people and the general welfare of the country throughout. And now at this time, the time for the mistletoe'' and holly, happy reminders, which fill the young men with joy, and bring floods of tender recollections to the aged, there seems a mellow mist in the aii and the odor of good things is on every hand, it is well that we extend to all the season's greeting of a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 'Some say that ever 'gainst that season comes. Wherein our Savior's birth is celebrated, . The bird of dawning singeth all night long; , And then they say no spirits can walk abroad; The nights are wholesome; then no planets strike. No fairy takes, nor which hath power to charm, So hallowed and so gracious is the time."
