The four Dunn brothers were in a
wagon Saturday in pursuit of law-

some matches and all four were thrown

A correspondent from Kingfisher
county gives the figures to prove that
the clear gain on an acre of cotton is
$28.50 more than the gain on an acre
of wheat. His figures are as follows:
Cotton this year, averaged about 500
pounds to the acre, and it sold as high
as $'4 cents per pound, that makes
$33.Y2 per acre clear gain. And wheat
that goes twenty-five bushels per acre
equals 1,500 pounds at about 28 cents
per bushel, that is 12 cents per pound,
making $7.50 per acre. The cutting is
SI and the threshing is 1.25, leaving
§5.25, not counting anything for hired
help or other expenses. This example
shows the same number of pounds of
each to the acre, thus leaving $28 50

LAIDS seem made
for wfear by chil-
dren, and they are
in strong favor this
season. The blue
and green plaids
are the most com-
monly seen tlris
season, and are
generally more be-
coming than those
of the red shades, and are smartly com-
bined with hunter's green or peacock
blue velvet, rows of tiny brass buttons
and black satin. A charming little
cloak for a miss of 6 years is of the soft-
est wool in blue and green piaid, made
to hang in full box plaits from a circu-
at all good form on the gown of a young
girl; beautifully shiny ribbons and del-
icate embroideries. An exceedingly
smart frock of pearly white taffeta is
made girlish and sweet bylteaccessories
of broad pearl-white satin ribbon and
huge buttons set with pearls. The
skirt is immensely wide, flaring out in
huge pleats of gauffered taffeta, with a
graduated panel of white satin ribbon
directly, down the center. The bodice
is as dainty as possible, made of the
taffeta, pouching well over the folded
belt of white satin ribbon. Directly
down the center of the front is a five-
inch satin ribbon in the form of a box
pleat, and decorated with huge buttons
set with pearl. It is cut quite low,
squarely across from shoulder to
shoulder and banded with rib-
bon. A soft frill of chiffon covers the
pretty shoulders. The sleeves are
broad loops of the ribbon knotted
through the center. With this frick are
worn long suede gloves of pearl white
and suede slippers to match. The
cloak to go with this pretty creation is
of snowy-white eider down, very full
and quite long, with a deep opera hood,
and all edged with the softest and fluf-
fiest of white Angora.

lar yoke. The sleeves are modishly
draped to spread at the elbow, the lower
arm being composed of richly brocaded
velvet, a black pattern upon a ground-
work of dull blue. A sailor-shaped
cape collar of the same is edged with
heavy black Thibet. The small wrists
are trimmed in the same way. The
cloak is made wonderfully warm and
cozy by a wadded lining of leaf-green
satin. A "grandmother's" muff of
Thibet accompanies the rig and lends
an air of quaintness. A "Billy Cock"
hat of dark blue felt has its rolling brim
faced with dark blue velvet, and at its
Bide two stiff iridescent quills, held by
a snug little choux of velvet.
Another fetching plaid cloak is in
shades of brown and white in very large
unbroken checks. It Is made in
Mother Hubbard fashion, with a huge
sailor collar of golden-brown velvet
overlaying the round yoke. The collar
is edged flatly with a coarse yellow lace,
from under which falls white Angora
fur. A huge white felt hat, massed
with heavy plumes, the brim tied down
over the little ears in the quaintest
manner by broad ties of gauffered silk,
makes the small wearer a picture of
childish beauty. The pretty gray as-
trakhan is the body of one of the pret-
tiest cloaks of the season for small lad-
dies. It is, as are all the smart coats,
cut abnormally short, so as to set out
like a huge frill about the small legs.
There is an enveloping collar of navy
blue velvet, edged with white Angora,
topped by an openwork band of cut

Now is the season of delight for the
young dancing-school miss who is con-
sidered too young to "come out" in so-
ciety, but who may dance and flirt to
her heart's content under the chaperon-
age of the dancing teacher. White
forms the foundation for many of the
dainty dancing gowns, and is really the
only appropriate thing for these young
buds to wear, though, no doubt, their
hearts ache for the more gorgeous array

White muslin, white satin, white chif-

taffeta are the favorite materials, and
for decorations are the exquisite lace
edgings. Deep flounces of lace are not

softening effect upon color in every
case, and is especially charming when
made up with pretty soft grays, browns
or some of the protty mixed goods.
A fetching gown for semidress even-
ing wear is made up of smoke-gray
crepon and pearly white velvet. The
flaring skirt is set full of panels of
pearly white velvet, broad at foot and
tapering to the waist in a sharp point.
The round bodice of crepon has panels
of velvet from throat to waist, gradu-
ating like the skirt. Over the full
mandolin sleeves of crepon are flaring
points of velvet smartly stiffened. A
pretty gown of black satin is made gay
with pipings of white satin and rows
of tiny white pearl buttons. Another
pretty frock is of tobacco brown taffeta,
with trimmings of white satin ribbon
edged with frills ot yellow Valen-
ciennes lace. The skirt has a wonder-
ful width, and is decorated by two
panels set in either side of the skirt,
edged with rows of lace-edged ribbons.
The round bodice, and it seems as
though all bodices are round nowadays,
is composed of alternate rows of lace-
edged ribbon and tobacco-brown velvet
ribbon. There are huge balloon sleeves,

A pretty black and white checked
gown of softest taffeta has decorations
of ivory white satin and black jet. The

perfectly plain. It has a seamless little

jet. The lower part of the full sleeves
are of jet-covered satin.
FERRIED ON A POLE.
Novel Feat Performed b, an Aged Luna*
berman in Maine.
j Although John Cusack, exlumbermatt
| of Moose island, in Morehead lake,
j Maine, is now 65 years of age, he has
not lost his dexterity in executing some
j of the difficult feats in log walking that
I made his name famous on the west
branch of the Penobscot for many
years, says the New York Sun. He
recently made a bet with Sam Sa'nford,
the liveryman, that he would that af-
ternoon cross the Piscataquis river with
no other support than a stick so small
that, rested upon his wrist, he could
hold it out at arms' length. The word
quickly passed about the village of what
was about to be attempted, and at 4
o'clock the hour set for the trial, the
banks of the river above the mill dam
were lined with spectators. Mr. Cusack
appeared on time, carrying a long pike-
pole, which was to serve him as balanc-
ing pole and propeller, and a bundle
containing a checked gingham shirt and
drilling overalls, his substitute for pro-
fessionable tights. Attired in his per-
forming costume and in his stocking
feet, Mr. Cusack launched his stick,
pushing it out to deep water, and with
a quick spring landed on it at a point
about six feet from the butt, where he
perched as securely as a rope walker
upon a tight rope. The end of the stick
upon which he rested sank beneath his
weight until the water was breast high
to him, while the forward and- smaller
end rose from the water, pointing like
a finger mark to the opposite shore.
Using the pikepole, held by both hands
in the middle as a double oar, the old
man, with a forward motion, scooped
himself along at no small rate toward
the further bank, while two men fol-
lowed in a boat ready to roscue him in
case of mischance. There was no oc-
casion for their services In his behalf.
The distance was two hundred yards,
but he did not slacken stroke as he
churned along, his head and shoulders
rising and falling above the chill black
waters with his swift strokes, while he
varied the monotony of the exercise by
an occasional whoop or shouted com-
pliment to the ladies among the specta-
tors upon the opposite shore. He
crossed the river in five minutes and
landed, fresh and smiling, amid the ap-
plause and congratulations of the peo-
ple gathered there. After his return to
the hotel he refused all stimulants ex-
cept a comforting bowl of ginger tea
pressed upon him by the landlord, and
has since shown no ill effect whatever
from his recent exertion and the severe
exposure he underwent. He has offered
to repeat the performance this week on
a similar, wager.
SCENES IN HYDE PARK.
Shows Are Given on the Public Pleasure
Ground Thfct Are In Bad Form.
It appears that the condition of Hyde
Park, in London, is disgraceful, as de-
tailed by a cerrespondent in the London
Times, as follows: "It has come to be
a thing tacitly acquiesced in that the
broad graveled space in Hyde park op-
posite the Marble arch shall be daily
given over to atheists, spouters of sedi-
tion, et hoc genus omne. For a longf
time past men have been in the habit oj)
giving recitations and a sort of vul-
gar dramatic performance in the center
of a huge circle of admiring loafers,
protected and, apparently, patronized
by the police. These men, often three
in number, are provided with certain
stage accessories in the shape of paint,
red wigs, clowns' dresses, and other
tawdry things of the kind, while their
vulgar sallies elicit roars of laughter
and subsequently pecuniary contribu-
tions. This sort of thing being per-
mitted, I can conceive of no equitable
reason why a nigger troupe, a German
band, a set of jugglers, or any other
class of street performers should not at
once take possession of part of the va-
cant space and cater for public favor.
Many of them—'Punch and Judy,' for
instance—would be infinitely less ob-
jectionable than the tatterdemalions
who are now in possession."
A Clever Princess.
The Princess Maud, whose engage-
ment to her cousin, Trince Carl of Den-
mark, has just been announced is the
favorite child of the I'rinco of Wales.
The prince speaks of her as "a good
chap," and in the family circle and to
the intimate friends sho is known an
"Harrie." The princess is quite a de-
termined young lady, as the following
little story will show: Home two or
three years ago the Wales girls were
somewhat restricted as to dress allow
ance, and Princess Maud grew so tired
of a certain costume that wouldn't wear
out that one day she applied a match
and the garment came to a brilliant If
untimely end. Latterly the princesseft
have dressed well. The bride-elect af-
fects a certain "mannlshness" of attire,
and has been known to sport a single
eyeglass with chic effect. The prlncesn
