DANCE TONIGHT AT ORCUTT.
The Wednesday and Sunday Night
dances at Orcutt Park are growing
in popularity and each night sees a
larger attendance that the previous
one. The floor is in spleudid shape
and the orchestra is one of the best
in the state under the direction cl
Mr. Wilson, who has few if any. su-
periors with a violin. The "Newport '
or ' Thee Step" seems to meet with
the favor of the dancers and was put
in twice Sunday night. It will be on
again tonight. The advanced class
will meet tonight just prior to the reg
j ular dance and be given instructions
i in the "Newport" from > to S:30 p. m.
next Wedensday the "Schottische"
j will be taught and put on ill the re-
| ular dances thereafter. A good time
; and good order is promised everyone.
A big feature vaudeville program
is offered "Coxyites" and Manager
Smith says it is the best yet. There
I are 2 acts each of which is worth
twice the price of admission to say
nothing of the pictures are as the
pictures here usually are, very good
and come from the best of the “Inde-
pendent" makers. Following the
usual custom tonight is "Amateur

Germany Shaefor, the rollicking
first baseman of th^f Washington
Americans, who is the prize jokesmith
of the league. Schaefer is always
pulling unlooked for stuff. The other
day, first baseman Chase of the Yan-
kees caught a grounder from Schae-
fer's bat and was about to tag the lat-
ter out. Schaefer.' right-about-faced
and beat it back toward home, with
Chase pursuing him. Germany did
not stop at home, but turned the cor-
ner and sped toward third, with
Chase hot on his trail. This kept up
until both fell down from the exhaus-
tion of laughing when nearly back to
second base and meantime the big
Washington crowd was in a tumult,
spasms, convulsions or whatever you
like to call them. It is too bad Schaef
er didn't start life on the stage. He
would have been some large hit. But,
as it is, he is a prime favorite with
the senatorial fans, which makes him
more valuable to the team than his
mere baseball ability would indicate.

IMPRESSES TULSA VISITOR
Bouquets are seldom received by business houses*
hence!the following, which came in the mail
yesterday is worth printing.
ROY’S STORE, Tulsa " ' ■ * ----
Gentlemen: Just a line of appreciation at thra
time. After having looked over the business district
of Tulsa, 1 was somewhat amused to note that the
windows of the majority of the stores were placarded
"July Clearance Sale," Sacrifice Sals,” etc.
The novel method you were carrying out of dis-
tributing hats from the roof of your building, and the
further fact that you have the backbone to distinguish
yourselves and your business with the suggestive
term "Expansion Sale," proves you ars among thoss
who have faith in your city and In advertising at a
business getter. I appreciate these things very much
and desire to congratulate you on your policy of ag-
gressiveness. With this foundation and tne ability to
smile now and then, the Expansion idea will mature
and grow to big things. One only needs to roil up
up one's sleeves and go to work, and occasionally
Keep it up; it will win for you.
