Oklahoma's Salad Days.
A few y ars, ago, when the new lands in
the* Indian Territory were "opened, the
small towrs which sprang up were tilled
with a veiy mixed population; the theatres
and traveling theatrical companies were on
a par with the town they visited. One
iyght the writer was in Oklahoma City and
stepped into a theatre where Trilby was
bt'iii* played. Flu- house was packed from
top to bottom with tough characters, and
the charact -r of the actors and their acting
was, if anything tougher, so that even the
audience became restless. The play r 'ach-
ed the point where Little Billie is supposed
to clasp Trilby passionately in his arms,
instead of which, he held h r at arm's
length, with as much ardor as he would
have shown to a bale of hay, and exclaimed:
"Oh, Trilby, nothing can come between us"
—whereat a six foot cow puncher in the
gallery leaned over the railing and shouted
in tones of supreme disgust, "Aw, git out!
you could trow a cow between yer!" Ex.
Hay Ri e.
A jolly hay-ride was indulged in Wednes-
day e/ening by a party of thirty-four young
society people. It was aranged in honor of
Mrs. Frank Johnson and the Misses Out-
calt, of Oklahoma City, and was chaperon-
ed by Mesdames Hoyt, Hall, and Mullins.
After the ride the party had an infer nal
dance at the opera house.
The Fond Creek bank has increased its
capital stock from $5,000 to $10,000.
The people, arc all buying
5imp!y because it is the only
HltiH GRADEr powder sold at a
5ave trie coupons round in each
can—They arc valuable.
The census bureau has just issued a
bulletin which contains some rather startling
information in regard to the area in square
miles of the various states and territories in
This official data is particularly significant
at this time when Oklahoma is striving to
secure admission to statehood in the Union.
Did you ever know that the territory of
Oklahoma contains more square miles than
eleven states already in the Union? Did
you also know that the great Empire state
of New York, with a population of 7,000,-
000 inhabitants, is only eighteen per cent
larger than Oklahoma. Even the great
state of Ohio contains only about one six
per cent more in area than the territory,
while Connecticut, Deleware, Maryland,
Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New
, Jersey, Vermont and Rhode Island are in-
j significant spots on the map in comparison
[ with Oklahoma.
Oklahoma has a gross area of 39,030
j square mile's; a water surface of 200
' square miles. New York has a land sur-
I face of 47,620 square miles, while Ohio's
area is only 41,000 square miles.
The Indian Territory and Oklahoma as
one would give an area surpassed by only
nine states in the Union. This would give
a combined area o£ over 70,070 square
