      The week just drawing to a close has been one of varied attractions in Tulsa. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday the emancipation celebration at the fair grounds attracted quite a number of the colored people from near by vicinities, and there "was a hot time in the old town" the entire time. Wednesday Hough & Huston's dog and pony show gave two creditable performances and yesterday Clark's show pitched their tents in our midst and filled a date advertised several days in advance. The town has been full of people and doubtless these attractions was the means of bringing them in.

      This society met with Mrs. Crutchfield Friday, August 1st.
       Though the weather was like unto the Torrid zone, yet about half past three o'clock the buggies were seen crowding their way up the lane from town. A little after four all were safely ensconced in the shady yard and porches of Mrs. Crutchfield's hospitable. After the business meeting and weekly collection, which amount to a nice little sum, was over, Miss Clara Moore went to the piano and assisted by the ladies sang some beautiful songs. Very soon time for refreshments came. First came fruits fresh from the orchard, grapes, peaches, apples and occasionally a glass of ice water. Next was coffee and doughnuts. The doughnuts seemed to melt in one's mouth they disappeared so rapidly. The writer and a friend thought to take a peep into the culinary department, and Lo! there was Mrs. Joe Barker assisting the home folks frying to a turn the nice brown crullers, smiling so pleasantly and chatting so merrilly that it made us forget it was July. A more genial society I never met. All seemed to vie with each other who should be the most entertaining.
     All too soon the shadows began to lengthen. Each one seemed to realize that one more afternoon both of profit and pleasure was about over. The writer felt more regret perhaps than any of the others, because when the next meeting comes at Mrs. Brady's she will not, in all probability, be in Tulsa, but wishing this society all the success that its most sanguine members could hope for, I must say "Au Revoir."

      The Ladies Aid Society of the Christian church will hold their handkerchief bazaar in the rooms of Marr's Commercial College tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon and night. Handkerchiefs for everybody. You are invited.

      M C Wilbanks wishes to inform the public that the property directly north of the M.E. Church South, is not for sale, and that R A McKim who has been trying to dispose of same has no right or claim to it. You are hereby warned to not bargain for the property before consulting Mrs. Dora Wilbanks.
