The tall of the Daniel's comet Is growing a little hit longer each night and by the middle of September should stretch nt least twelve de grees from Its head. Thin comet Is the first that many millions of people have seen . The year 1881 was tho last year In which a comet that amounted to anything has appeared. During August and September of that year thero were three beautiful comets, one In the north which struck the orbit of the varth hentl-on and appeared for two weeks ns a vast globe of diaphanous mist, another In the south, noil still a larger one In the western sky ear ly In tho morning. The (nils of these comets were between Iwenty-tilght and forty-two degrees long. In the summer of 1911 those of us who are on earth will lie pleased with the sight of one of the most Immense comets which ever visited the solar system, Haley's comeL This celestial wanderer has ro-appeared every seventy-live jears since the dawn of time, At It last appearance In 1832 It was so bright as to be seen at 4 o'clock In the afternoon at Its perihelion. This comet should be vis ible In August 1911, and It should ap proach the earth's orbit from a point near Hegulus. To the Business Men of Ardmore.

THE NEGRO PROBLEM l Giving the Republican Party Much Vexation Negro Knows He Hat I Deen Dltcrlmlnated Agalnit 1 and a Dolt U Fttred. Ardmorelte BpeclaL Guthrie, Ok., Aug. 23. With the election less than a month oft the two great parties ate straining every tense muscle In the fight to control the untried machinery of the promis ed state of Oklahoma. Went It not of such vital iiiiort the strenuous pace would be amusing. The politicians of Oklahoma and Indian Territory are not novices. They have been tested under the vicissitudes of territorial hood and perhaps no other class could so ably cope with the situation. The republicans are struggling with the negro problem. It Is no longer denied the black cloud Is gathering with rapidly Increasing proportions. The negroes believe they have been double-crossed and refuse to bo paci fied. Republican leaders are wary, and conciliatory. They see in the declaration of two of the most promi nent negro pnrty workers that the race feels It has been discriminated against slnco the Tulsa convention n danger that may result In a bolt. The split may be bridged between now and the seventeenth of Septem ber, but the present Indications are chary of the old "brotherhood." There has been no cessation In the activity of the democrats since their primaries. They ore making every day count. So bitter has the guber natorial fight with the Muskogee man, Haskell, opposing Krantz, the present territorial executive, grown that scarcidy any mention is made of other candidates. It Is difficult for an outsider to ap preciate, the conditions of tho initial contest for plums. The campaign has been acrimonious, unprecedently vin dictive. The whirlwind centers around the gubernatorial duelists. Kven tho possibilities lu the United States senate race has sunk Into llstlessness. Republicans do not entertain any real hopes of getting anything like a ma jority lu tho legislature nod conse quently efforts along that lino nre only half-hearted. Hut they do ex pect to elect Krantz. The governor Is lu the race to win and democratic leaders have long since recognized the fact. The fight Is to the hilt with the chances overwhelmingly favoring the democrats. Should a republican candidate land it will be solely be cause his irrjlmatJiopularlty has precipitated a landslide. A campaign In which the muck rake has played as prominent a part can not be pictured. Vituperation of the most slanderous sort hits u.ot been f pared. Kor tho most part It has been directed at the head of Mr. Haskell. The opposition has not hestltnted at pclly deceptions nnd falsehoods so palpably as to render them at any oth er time absurd. Labor Day Proclamation. Guthrie, Okla., Aug. 22. Governor Krantz this evening Issued tho follow ing labor day proclamation: "lly authority of law, I, Frank Krantz, governor of tho territory of Oklahoma, hereby designate Monday, September 2, 1907, as I.nbor Day. "It Is fitting that our territory which has made such remarkable pro gress In material wealth mid civic power, through the Industry of her citizenship, should each year set apart one day In recognition of the dignity of honest labor In every department of human activity, nnd its great Im portance In the future life lu 'Orcat er Oklahoma.'

The boll worm Is beginning to get In its work In certain sections of the country and especially In the section of the country north of here.. It Is reKirte( that that pest has almost completely destroyed several cotton crops already, and Is playing havoc with the others. It. I Taylor, a farm er who lives a few miles north of the city came Into the Ardmorelte office with several samples of cotton that has been subject to tho devastation of the boll worm, nnd which shows that unless some action Is taken, or some remedy found tho people In that section will be minus a cotton crop this year. Mr. Taylor has 75 acres In cot ton, and stated that all of his crop was affected the same as the sample that was brought to the office, If such Is he case then the farmers in the same section that Mr. Taylor resides In are In bad shape so far as making a good cotton crop. From whnt can be learned It seems as If the worm has been getting In Its damage slrtce the cool nights have begun and In those sections where the weed Is protected by trees. In other sections where thero Is no for estry and where the entire field has been the object of tho sun's rays, the crop Is unaffected.
