Tuesday afternoon the home of Sg
Mr. and Mrs. II. A. Hawk was the I j
scene of much merriment, the oe-2
casion being the third birthday of ^
their little daughter, Frances Naomi.
The time was spent in plays such
as children of their age could enjoy.
Delicious refreshments of ice cream
and cake was served to the child-
ren, and coffee and cake to the
At each end of the table were

The March Osage
The March number of the Osage,
Oklahoma's new, live magazine, is
out and contains several surprizes
in the matter of its contents. The
Osage is setting a new standard for
Oklahoma journals of this class.
The cover page is in three-color
half-tone, the title page being an
exact reproduction of one of Paul
Weimar's most famous Indian
paintings, and the back a splendid
color plate of the new Colcord
building in Oklahoma City, the
most remarkable office building of
the Southwest. Throughout the
magazine are numerous fine illus-
The farmers jvill Ue particularly
interested in the editorials and arti-
cles relative to their particular in-
terests, and the women will also be
pleased at the recognition they re-
ceive in this number, the chief fea-
ture being a contribution by Ida
Porter Boyer on the suffrage move-
ment, with portraits.
All will be interested in a contri-
bution by Rev. J. H, O. Smith on
the prevalent missionary movement
by the laymen of the churches. No
writer has gone so directly at the
heart of the great world social prob-
lem than does this writer.
The historical articles are, as usu-
al, in the Osage, of thrilling inter-
est and are vouched for as to their,
The editorial feature of this mag-
azine is notable for the independent
stand taken on any subject treated,
and for its incisive brevity.
The issue is permeated with the
booster spirit of Oklahoma as a
whole, and alive with interest in

Economic Use of Meats
Discussion of the increasing cost
of living has brought to light quite
generally that the cheaper cuts
of meats are more difficult to [ire-
pare for the table than the more
expensive portions of the carcass,
due to a lack of know ledge of how
they may be made appetizing and
palatable. With a view to provid-
ing the housekeepers of the coun-
try with practical suggestions along
this line, the United States depart-
ment of agriculture has prepared a
manual of economy in meat cook-
ing that contains much valuable
information, which will be issued
free. It is known as "Economic
( so of Meats iii the Home." and
may be had by addressing a re-
quest to the secretary of agriculture

Millions of dollars are expen-
ded for petaled luxuries during
the week preceding the joyous
spring holiday. This week's
feature will tell in an interest-
ing way something of the mam-
moth proportions of the liower
trade of the United States.
As in all other lines of busi-
ness, which have been charac-
terized by sudden growth, for-
tunes have been made by many
pioneers in the trade. One re-
tailer who was a street peddler
sixteen years ago, is now worth
several million dollars.
