The census bureau has just issued a
bulletin which contains some rather startling
information in regard to the area in squaie
miles of the various states and territories in
the Union. ,
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 ot
Oklahoma contains more square miles than
eleven states already in the Union? Did
i you also know that the great Empire state

Oklahoma's Salad Days.
A few years, ago, when the new lands in
the Indian Territory were opened, the
small towrs which sprang up were filled
with a veiy mixed population; the theatres ,
and traveling theatrical companies were on
a par with the town they visited. One
night the writer was in Oklahoma City and
stepped into a theatre where Trilby was
being played. The house was packed from
top to bottom with tough characters, and
the character of the actors and their acting
was, if anything tougher, so that even the
audience became restless. The play r •::ch-
eif the point where Little Bilfie 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 iiay, and exclaimed:
"Oh, Trilby, nothing can come between us" i
—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 evening by a party ot thirty-four young
society people. It was aranged in honor ot
Mrs. Frank Johnson and the Misses Out-
calt, of Oklahoma City, and was chaperon-
ed by Mesdames Hoyt, Hall, and Mullins.
Alter the ride the party had an infer nal I
dance at the opera house.
