Struck In the base of the right ear
by a pitched ball, William Johnson
was almost instantly killed during a
ball game at Olive, near Sapulpa. The
game was close and exciting and when
Johnson came to bat he was cheered
loftdly. Johnson attempted to duck
the second ball pitched. He collapsed
after being bit and never uttered a
sound. Bill Dale, a pitcher who pitched
the ball that caused Johnson’s death,
is on the verge of nervous collapse as
a result of the tragedy.

Oklahoma Kids See Sights of Capital
'PHE unusual privilege of the floor
I of the house of representatives
was granted to Louis and Temple Ab-
ernathy, sons of United States Mar-
shal “Jack" Abernathy of Frederick,
Okla., a few days ago. The boys, who
are nine and six respectively, rode
their ponies from their home in Okla-
homa to New York, where they were
to meet their friend. Colonel Roose-
vent. On their way they stopped in
Washington for a few days.
“Uncle Joe” Cannon was responsi-
ble for the appearance of Louis and
Temple on the floor. They wore their
sombreros and long cowboy pants
tucked into boots, and the six-year-old
had upon the front of his top piece a
deputy United States marshal s badge
They were the breeziest things in the
Juvenile line to have struck Capitol
hill recently. The congressmen gasped
J and flocked around them.
“How do you like Washington?" j
the speaker asked the youngsters.
“Bully,’’ said the boys, who used to
know President Roosevelt, and had
some White House slang.
“Well, my lads," said the speaker,
“this city belongs to 90,000,000 of peo-
ple. You own just as much of it as
Andrew Carnegie or John D. Rocke-
The baby deputy marshal looked
very important. He gazed longingly j
out of the window as much as to say
that if he could have his share he
would take the Washington monu-
“How much do you ride?" asked
“Oh, forty or fifty miles a day,” an-
swered the wolf-catcher’s son.
“You kids! You mean a week," said
the speaker. The Abernathys looked
“Naw," they said, “a day. We make
50 miles a day easy."
“But the army test,” said Uncle
Joe, “that’s 90 miles In three days. 1

McQueen is a live town. The First
State bank of McQueen, capitalized at
$10,000, received on the first day it
opened $2,519.05 on deposit. A stock
company has been organized to erect a
cotton gin, to cost about $7,500; work
on a 24 x 60 foot general stone building
is under way, and the building commit-
tee of the Methodist church has made
arrangements to start a structure.
Gas ranges and gas cooking appliances were then crude
affairs. It was not until the 90s that the manufacturers, gas
companies and the public really got together on the proposi-
tion. Now the number of gas ranges in use runs/ into the
millions and the price of gas is only a fraction of what it used
f o be. When the world takes up a thing and uses it in earn-
est you may rest assured that that thing will serve a valuable
purpose. If saving labor, abolishing dirt, increasing the com-
fort of woman, shortening her hours of wrork and improving
the quality of cookery are good works, then the gas range has
reason to be proud. Besides this, gas for fuel represents a
saving in household expenses. And it means COOL
KITCHENS IN SUMMER. Ask our new business depart-
ment the question ‘‘How can I get a gcis range?”
