"A DAY IN FLOWERDOM" THE
Most BRILLIANT SOCIAL EVENT
OF THE YEAR
The Becker was Filled to Capacity—
Ladies of Eastern Star Scored
To say that "A Day iu Flowerdoin,"
presented at the Becker last night
by the ladies of the Kastern Star for
the benefit of City Park was a big
success Is but half stating the facts.
The production was one of the most
beautiful and captivuting ever seen
here, and was the greatest social
event of the season. The theatre was
filled to capacity, every seat being
sold and the large audience enjoyed
an entertainment of unusual merit.
Comparisons are odious, so no at-
tempt will be made to discriminate
among the performers in point of ex-
cellence, for all were perfectly splen-
did, and the least criticism would be
entirely out of place. The most at-
tractive feature, of course, was the
part played by the little tots of Miss
Gunn's kindergarden. The little ones
were exceedingly well drilled and
their childish lisp while singing the
Japanese song was beautiful to l^ear.
Mi8s Eggennan made a beautiful
queen, and the members of her court
were no less strikingly handsome.The
whole production was fanciful, with
sufficient comedy to keep the audience
in the most appreciative frame of
Taken as a whole the entertain-
ment was a first class one, and many
would like to see it repeated.

CENTRAL COMMITTEE CONVEN-
ED AT OKLAHOMA CITY
Will Name Date and Place of Hoidinfl
the State Conventoin
Oklahoma Cty, May 2.—The Thread-
gill hotel was the busiest place in Ok-
lahoma City last night, when the re-
publicans of the new state including
an extra large representation began
gathering in this city for the meet-
ing of the state republcan central
committee meettng which is expected
to launch the republican party as an
active factor iu the poltical arena.
The primary purpose of the meet-
ing is to issue the call for a state con-
vention, composed of representatives
to be chosen by the fr-ank and file of
the party to decide on a course lo be
taken during the coming campaign as
well as the attitude regarding the
The committee began its session
this morning and the meeting prom-
ises to go into the record of the party
as one of the greatest in point of re-
sults at least. The representation is
the largest that has ever attended a
similar meeting in this city.
Several towns will present bids for
the holding of the convention, and it
is probable that the business men of
Oklahoma City will also ask that that
the convention be held here. While
most of the committee present hold
opinions as to the best course to be
pursued by the party, no statements
were given out for publication. Gov.
Frantz is in attendance, and is re-
ceiving a warm welcome.
Among some of the other prominent
men in attendance aside from the of-
ficers of the committee are Judge
Raymond of Muskogee, John Flenner
correspondent for the Muskogee Tim-
es-Democrat, Grant Victor of Afton.
William Johnstone of Bartlesville, Dr.
Scott, private secretary to Governor
Frantz, and C. Watts Washington

Dr. King's New Discovery Is my best
earthly friend. It cured me of asthma
