Ardmore, Tuesday May 6. The heavy rulna havo retarded rail- rond work for the tlmo being. Potter Palmer, for nearly fifty years one of Chlcngo's moBt promi nent business men, died Sundny even ing at hla home In that city. Mr. Palmer was tho largest taxpayer In tho Windy city, nnd was a Democrat. Wo do hopo that Uio meeting, which proved a very successful one, which wns hold last night at tho city hall, may be tho means of Infusing some now life In tho veins of the Commercial club, which hns been In n dormant state for several months Tho Commercial club Is an ngency of much good In Ardmore, nnd Its early resurrection should be advocated. Our people know now what they arc gutting up against. Three days xeunlon of Confederate veterans from nil points In Indian Territory, and our annual anniversary, nnd only two months honor. It Is tlmo now to b: up and doing, for whllo wo can not afford to duplicate Dallas In this mat tor, yet tho numbor of visitors wo will have and tho entertainment nnd cour tesy which Is duo them will glvo our jieoplo nmplo scope to show their lib erality. Ardmoro does nothing by halves; It's tho wholo hog or none nnd, na we have concluded to have this reunion, lot all tho people get to gcther on tho work In hnud, bid on visitors a generous welcomo nnd ac cord them nil the Hospitality In our power. The Ardmoro postotllco long ngo made and passed tho rec ord necessary to appeal to tho govornmont for n freo mall delivery Ardmoro has boon promised till boon, and we want It. This brings up the question of good sidewalks, which wo certainly will got now. It brings up ngnln the quostlon ot houses being uumborod plainly and correctly. Th streets, or a number of thoin, nre al ready named nnd designated. It' also brings up the vexed quostlon ot an all-night oloctrlc light system ovor tho city. The most of this work hns been attonded to In part, nnd we do think It time tho city wns making a move to establish this free mnll de livery system In our midst. Postmas ter Iledfleld cannot work alone In this Hint tor. You and your neighbor can nnd must assist. Tho city must look after tho olectrlc light folks, and by nil working together, tho burden will ho lightened nnd everyone benefited thereby, .Foley's Kidney Cure aiskes kidney's and bladder rleht oooooo o ooooooo O O 0 0 ooooooj oooooo oooooo oooooo oooooo Sulphur.

Why Mnur of Tlicm Were Untert From the Wnr He iiartment. Surprise Is often expressed by very Intelligent people thnt so large n pro portion of President Lincoln's most Im portant telegrnms nnd some of his let ters nre doted from the war depart ment Instead of the executive mnuslon nnd none of them from the navy, treas ury or other administrative bureaus. This is generally deemed a very singu lar fact, and from It writers have plausibly drawn the conclusion that Lincoln personally liked tho secretary ot war better than any ot the other cabinet otllcers. While this Indeed ap pears to have been true. It does not nec essarily so follow. He certainly held Mr. Scwnrd In high regnrd. yet he sel dom went to the state department In the clrcumstnnces It was not nt nil singular. The explanation Is easy. War was the business of thnt time, and Lin coin's eyes were nlways bent to the army, especially when great military events were Impending. He habitually haunted the adjacent war department nnd nrmy headquarters, where abode General Hulled:, his military udy.lscr, tor news nnd views. Head and heart were strenuously concentrated on the fight, wherever It might be. His fertile brain saw, too, the critical points in the gnmc oftentimes far more clearly than some of his so called "ablest generals." He not only wished to know what was going on In the Held, but performed his own pnrt nobly. In tbo heat of action or nt crucial moments his orders, sug gestions and Inquiries wero fired oil spontaneously from wherever he might be nt the moment, nnd nt such periods he was generally "ovcr'nt the wan. de partment" with Mr. Stnnton. Tha.t Is tho chief reason why so mnuy of his dispatches arc dated at that depart ment nnd not because he perhaps held Stanton In higher esteem than the sec retary of the navy or state or treasury.
