Tho bUIoh wero lendeu and n cold wind mndo It disagreeable but dosplto litis tact overyone soemod to bo In a choorful mood nnd Uio usual "Merry Now Year's" greetings wero obsorved. Throughout Ardmoro tho day was gen erally observed. Mnny stores koptopon until noon nnd nftorwnrds gavo their omployos a hnlf holiday. l'unllc ofll clals also observed tho day. All banks wore closed, ns was tho postodlco; Lit tle IiiiiSiiom wns transacted today. In tho homos Now Your's dlnnere were the nil!. This Now Yflf le n rmnludor that Ardmore Is progreMlng and devel oping In a mannor that Ib most grat ifying to tho citizens o fthe town. Within tho pnst year much has been accomplished In a commercial way and 1900 gives promise of even groat er tilings for Ardmore. To tho casual observer It mirnt be admitted that property values have materially in creased during tho year Just closed This was Illustrated In the recent lot mile held In the city when lots wore ongorly sought nt llguros that demon strated'the fact that the citizens had the utmost confidence In the future of the town. It must also he admit ted that many lots wero bought as a matter of speculation, and this bolng truo It shows that Uio nverngo citizen shows no temority In making Invest ments and that ho believes that he will receive returns according to the wisdom applied. It Is' singular that with the rnph Increase in proporty valuos thoro has not been the slightest Indication of n boom. Tho growth of Ardmore 1ms been steady, but sure. It Is advancing comntorclnlly and the volume of busi ness dono In 1906 has been vory sat isfactory to the morchnnts. This, In spite of the fact that crops wero not nltOKCthor a success. Tho unparalleled growth of Ard more nnd tho tlevolopmont of the man ufacturing, Jobbing and agricultural Interests during the past few yonrs rollecls credit, but It will bo nothing In comparison with tho futuro growth of the town who- to land titles In the country nro r.ottled. It would bo amazing to tho avorago citizen to learn tho number of re quests nnd Inquiries Hint the commer cial club has received during tho past year rolatlvo to the town nnd country. Tho club has boon Instrumental In bringing quite a number of peoplo to Ardmoro nnd this has been rfono In a, quiet wny. U Is realized that tho com ing yenr offers . grent opportunity for tho commercial club to accomplish results nnd It Is snfo to state that the olllcors nnd directors will watch Ardmore'K Interests zealously. Tho Ardmorolto predicts that dur ing this year thoro will bo u tide of Immigration to this section unequall ed; that tho business Interest h of Ard moro will enjoy tho most prosperous year In tlio history of the town. Kvory ono should pull for and work for n grantor Ardmoro. In this wny the town will bo vastly benolltod. It coBts nothing to boost the town, but It means much.

One of the greatest rallwny men In tho vcrld 1ms predicted that with in twenty years tho Htenm locomotive will be found only In museums, and that it place will be supplied i,y the electric motor, iH-oiralllng trains across tho continent at tho rate of 75 acres the continent at Uio rate of 75 mllofi nn hour. Such a possibility as this striking ly Illustrate tho nstonlshlngly rapid rate of dovolopmont in wlilch tho mechanical world Is progressing. The nineteenth contury was the ngo of steam; the twentieth century Is to be emphatically the ngo of electricity. No one can wifely predict the limits to which electrical tlevolop mont will proceed, hut It Is safe to say that at tho end of this century conditions of life upon this globe will be wonderfully changed from those which now oxlst, by reason of the Increased ability of nmn to control this mysterious but marvelous force to his advantage Some tllscontonted ones will tell you, young man, that the moro labor Bavlng devices human Intelligence produces, the smaller are your chances of wiccoss. This Is tlio dismal plaint or short-sighted, nmall-eoulel pessimism. Row are of It. It wns considered a labor-saving device to build the steamship, but the steamship has brought the whole world Into four very eloeo nnd com pact cornors. It wns considered a labor-saving dovlco to build the locomo tive, hut tho locomotive tnkes you to tho open plains, the fertile valleys and the gold llnetl niountnln sides, so you can ronch the harvests of tho Al mighty, which, hnd you rolled on your tired legs, could never have been gained. In the hear yonrs to come Now York will bo only ono In n mighty chain of grent citlos. Fifty years ago San Francisco was only a village of shncks. Thlry years ago tho Omaha and Kansns City, tho Sonttle, tho I.os Angeles, of today, were only misty dreams of the fow who dared to look to the futur? with faith. The boy of todny has little to fonr that the field Is becoming oiercrowd ed In our own country. It Is Just being opened. It Is for the young men who aro Just beginning to think what a wonderful world this Is, to study well tho achievements of thepast and to Bee In what mannor they nro to bo Improved. Nover did ho world cnll more loudly moro Insistently, for young men with force, energy and purpose young nion trained to do some one thing tlinn today. And every year that cry grows louder, more Insistent. Hut tho times demand men of large, liberal, energetic minds, and the man who Insists on doing business In the old-fashioned, humdrum wny Is ns much behind tho procesBlnn as Is the man who Insists on traveling with an ox tenm Instead of by railway. No opportunities today? Young man, when a sniall-snulod pessimist hisses that Ho at you, give him the laugh, and dig in for your big shnro of God's groat goodness to this ago of ours. o.;.o It Is undoubtedly true thnt the mor ula of a community aro raised or lowored by Its women, but how much higher standards could bo placed if women nnd girls stood firm for tho high Ideals. Girls did you ever stop to think that the boys have moro self respect tlinn tho members of your sex? Thero Is not n young mnn of nny degree of responsibility who would bo soen walking down tho street with u drunken girl. You might search the streets with a lino tooth comb nnl thou not find a young man who would lock nmiB nnd go promenading with a young lady who was puffing n cp or squirting tobacco julco nround on tho sldownlk. Somo girls have no hes itancy In accepting tho company of such characters and too mnny of thorn aro only too anxious to accept the companionship, heart and hand of anything that wears pants. Society will become reunod when tho girls demand the Iwys who wish to pay thorn attention the same puri ty of character that the boys demand of the girls. Over the head of tho young ladloa of tho land hang tho possibilities of Uio groatost reform that ever swept over this country of ours. 00 Night school Selvldgo Business Pol logo begins Monday, Jan. 1.
