Miss Ruth Reed of Tulsa, Okla., had
known the amount of envy she was
to create in other women or the hav-
oc she was to play with the hearts
of the men on the beach here Sunday,
it is extremely doubtful if she would
have ventured on the sands in the
only ‘ Harem” bathing suit that has
ever been seen here.
Miss Reed is inclined to be shy and
dislikes the notoriety that her daintily
made suit has brought her, but her
good sense as to the proper wearing
apparel to be worn on the beach over
came her scruples and she directe.d
the dressmaker as to the lines on
which the costume was to be made.
At first glance the dress looks like
an ordinary bloomer gymnasium suit,
but as the wearer walks, the dress
parts, showing a pair of tight fitting
bloomers that are made of the same
fabric as the outer dress.
"The entire costume was designed
by myself,” said Miss Reed, when
questioned as to Us origin, “the idea

“My chum is making one like it
now,” said Miss Reed, “and we don’t
feel a bit timid about wearing them,
though we were afraid at first we'd
be perfect frights in them.”
That they were not is attested by

ed on Miss Reed as she made her way
to the water's edge and dove head
foremost into one of the big breakers

CALLS BEATTIE DEAR
By Post Leased Wire Service.
Richmond, Va., August 1. "Henry,
Dear Kid,” is the way Beulah Binford
alludes to Henry Beattie, Jr., accused
of killing his wife, in a diary of the
girl’s found in her room today. On
one of the pages is a list of items of
furniture she had selected to go to
housekeeping, when, she says in a note
to Beattie, “you may visit me without
anyone knowing anything about it.'
“What’s the difference? Who cares?’

Schroeder Backed Out.
And in face of all these events com-
es the question: Why did Schroeder

thereby seek to ruin her life, even

C. C. Brannon, the "Fighting Parson,”
who for twenty years has been one
of the government’s most trusted
agents. The parson is well known
here, having been for years the right
hand man of "Pussyfoot" Johnson,
when the latter was establishing his
reputation In this section as a booze
destroyer, Is in Tulsa today after an
absence of several years. He Is here
in the interests of the government,
looking out for the Interests of the
Indians and seeing that liquor is not
sold to the government’s wards.
Rev. Brannon has been here since
Sunday. In fact It was he who
bought whiskey at the Alcorn hotel
Sunday evening that caused the whole
sale raid on the place later that night
by the city police.
The Fighting Parson is a Methodist
preacher, plain and unassuming. He
derived his title from the many hair-
breadth escapes he was in while in
this country when It was the Indian
Territory and government prohibition
laws were in effect. On many occa-
sions Brannon has bee badly beaten

house committee on Indian affair*
Saturday decided to report favorably
Representative Ferris’ bill providing
for the prorating of $1,600,000 of the
Comanche and Kiowa Indian fund
among 3,000 of these Indians. The
money is to be deposited In local
banks In Oklahoma and paid out as
the needs of the Indians may require.
The $2,600,000 Comanche-Ktowa
fund which draws 4 per cent interest
is left intact by the bill. The meas-
ure Is lo be presented to the house
on the ground that it constitutes a lo-
cal emergency. The Indian office has
agreed to an extension of the time of
paymepts by white purchasers of Kio-
wa Comanche lands provided the Fer-
ris bill passes so as to take care of
the needs of the Indians.
On Tuesday the committee will re-
port favorably on the bill to pay the
