Patriotic Appendicitis.
    One class of scientists tell us that the embyronic firemists contain us all; and that the only difference between stone, tree, fish, bird, monkey and man is development, and that the different stages are mile posts along the upward road ....

   June is not only the month of roses, but also of wedding. It would not surprise the Republican if we did not, before the end of the month, report two weddings in high life in this city.

In Memory.
    Of Juanita, little daughter of Mr and Mrs L. Conaway, aged 4 years and 8 months and 21 days. [poem by a relative follows]

   When in need of a grip or telescope, don't fail to see Williamson Bros' line.
   Jas. H McBirney, the handsome employee of the Tulsa Banking Co., is spending the week at Parsons and Coffeyville. Even and anon there flits before the vision of this Appollos a fairy form, and so bewitching and charming does the vision become that Mc. has to hie away home (?) sometimes to dispel the influence of the apparition. After a short sojourn in Kansas Jim generally manages to stand the climate of the B.I.T. for three or four months. His visits become less frequent as time drifts on apace and the only solution to be gleaned from this is the allurements of Tulsa become greater with each successive day.
   The members of the Christian Endeavor of the Presbyterian Church, had quite an enjoyable time at the home of E Calkins last night. Quite a number were present and the hospitality put forth by this estimable couple made the social features of this gathering a source of pleasure for all.
   Mrs. John Eagan and children, Mrs. France and little girl, Mrs. Chas. Whitaker and little girl, Mrs. Rundquist, Mrs. Clark and children, Mrs. Menifee and daughter, and Edith Keen, all of Sapulpa got a thorough drenching Tuesday evening. They drove over to attend a meeting at the house of Mrs. McAllister and a heavy rain storm came up just after they had started home. At the river they learned that Nickell creek was past fording and all had to turn back and spend the night.
   Probably the most handsome soda fountain ever shipped to the Territory now adorns the drug store of J M Morrow & Co. It is a beauty in every respect and the composition used in its make-up are onyx, marble and silver. A costly mirror reflects your likeness while gazing upon this beautifully wrought design, and its rich mountings are a marvel to behold. Tomorrow the fountain will be charged for the first time and Mr. Morrow invites everyone to come in and have a soda with him.
   Smiley Bros. received a brand new seperator the first of the week. It is one of the latest improved make and will prove quite a valuable adjunct to the neighborhood when threshing time rolls around. These gentlemen are progressive farmers and have a full complement of the latest patents in agricultural implements and their success in the growing of cereals of all kinds the past few years has been almost phenomenal.
   Charley Brown and wife returned from Missouri Wednesday, where they had been in attendance at the bedside of Mr. Brown's sister. They were absent some ten days or more.
