No kind of graft and no intoxicants were permitted on the grounds or anywhere in the neighborhood. Food and light refreshments were in abundance. A buffalo was barbecued and served to guests. The main feature of the performance was a reproduction of the rush of settlers Into Oklahoma at the strip opening. The lirsl claim was staked by an old negro woman, Aunt Eliza' Carpenter of Ponca City, who stood erect in her rickety buggy and drove her ponies at the top of their speed. In the roping contest Bright Drake, an Osage nation cowboy, won first prize, $250 cash, in twenty-nine seconds.

The Santa Fe railroad, which passes through the grounds of the 101 Ranch, han dled quite a number of special trains and tliis part of the program was much improved over that of a year ago.

When we see to many young men with their hair parted in the middle and hanging down their foreheads so as tq obscure every trace of intellect, and ao many young women with their hair all frissly-frosvsly and flopping around their facet in 60 different directions, we just want to hare a say.

Taking Things Too Seriously. Miss Jenki Have you really broken off yonr engagement to him? Miss Flytle Oh, yes. I Just had to. Ha was getting too sentimental-began to talk to me about matrimony. IMPRESSIONS OF OTHER LIVES. Of Such Stuff It Is Possible Dreams Are Mada Of. I think very often our dreams are a Jumble of Ideas that we have inherited, and that dreaming la largely a kind of free play of what I have called ancestral memory. We dream of things which we have never experienced in our waking moments. I remember a very realistic dream. It was a battle, and I was in a regiment of cavalry that received an order to charge. The whole scene is vividly before me as I write, and were I an artist I could sketch the face of a man who rode by my side. I can feel the throb of eagerness, the thudding of the horses' roofs in the mad rush as we quickened our pace to get to closer quarters with those we were pursuing. Suddenly the squadron of men In front opened, wheeling off to the right and left, and we were looking into the Iron throats of a masked battery. They opened fire upon us a moment after the ear splitting thunder, and I was In a hell of smoke, dust, blood, and metal; every piece seemed to sing a war chant of Its own. Then 1 awoke, and I was shouting "God! I never knew it was anything like this!" Here surely is something experienced by an ancestor which has descended from generation to generation and taken its place in my collection of impressions. Nineteenth Century. RE8ENTED EVEN WISE ADIVCE. Legend Illustrating Superstition of Russian Peasant An almost superstitious value is attached to the possession of land by the poor Russian peasant There is a parallel In the old eastern story of Nasr Eddtn Hodga. He met a peasant one day with a donkey, over whose back hung two sacks, one filled with stones, the other with wheat, the stones having been added to balance the wheat "Why not divide the wheat into two parts instead?" Suggested Nasr Eddin Hodga. Delighted with the idea, the peasant did as he was advised, and hung the two sacks of wheat over the donkey's back. "And where are your lands, O wise stranger?" he asked, humbly. "I have no lands," answered the other. "Your estates, then, and your palaces?" inquired the peasant. "I have none," said the other. "Then your houses, your gardens, your orchards?" persisted the man, amazed. "What!" cried the outraged peasant. "Do you, who have no lands and no possessions, presume to give advice to me?" and he unloaded the donkey, rearranged the wheat and rtones as before, and proceeded on his way. Was and Is a Good Indian. Waladotta, or Gray Eagle, an Indian chief who took part In the Custer massacre, and, like many others of the victorious force in that fight, took refuge In the Canadian northwest from the vengeance of the United States, has recently died at Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. Unlike some of his companions, however, when the rebellious half-breed in Saskatchewan called the Indians to their aid he not only refused, but took an active part in the war 'on the white man's part. He was a peculiarly fine specimen of the red Indian, both physically and morally, for he was six feet four inches tall and conspicuously free from vicious habits. Not long before his death he renounced paganism and entered the Angelican communion, in which his children had always been brought up. London's Many Churches. Within the narrow limits of the city of London, with its mere handful of residents only sufficient to people a small provincial town there are still so many churches that you might worship in a different one every Sunday of the year without putting foot inside them all. Within the rural deanery of the east city there are to-day no fewer than ten churches, each of which ministers to a population of lest than 200; the agsregato number of parishioners is 1,473, while the churches have accommodation for 2,-700, thus providing almost two seats for every possible worshiper, Including the infants in anna.

The device la very beautiful, consisting of a jackrabblt rampant spitting In the face of a bulldog oouchant, on a shield quartering green, yellow, red and pure white. The green Is emblematical of the color of my forefathers, the yellow of that streak we all have In common at times and upon occasions; the red what I sometimes get In my eye and what I used to pay 16 cents a drink for, and the white Is emblematic of my bankbook at present and my Intentions all the time, the whole surmounted by a crown of lambs-quarter greens and three green onlona ahashed. The motto Is, 'In hoc fricassee,' meaning, 'my great grandfather waa one of the 3,000 or 4,000 ragged Continentals who crossed the Delaware In the same boat with Washington.'

New York Tribune. Sculptors' Pot Boilers. They were walking past a beautiful pink and white house whose doorcap was most exquisitely carved. The sculptor pointed to It. "My work," he said. "That's the pot-boiling I do while I work on my masterpiece. It Is nothing unusual with sculptors to do such work.

Bluejackets from the ships of the Australian squadrons are permitted to travel free on the New Zealand railways, as the government considers that their talk of the country when they return home will attract lmml-rranta.

Such a one 1.4 "Uncle Josh Perkins", the realistic comedy-drama which will hold the boards at the Fifth Avenue Theatre on September 1 for one night only. It is said to contain just enough tragedy, with comedy elements cleverly interwoven, to attract and retain human interest, and funny enough to extract hearty laughter from the most blase theatregoer.
