    The patriotic citizens of Sedona, on Oak creek, gave a dance in the school house at that place Tuesday night in honor of the boys of that section who go with Coconino's draft contingent Sunday. Coffee, cake and other refreshments were served throughout the entertainment, which lasted far into Wednesday morning. Assessor J.D. Dunn, who happened to be down that way on business was also an invited guest. Mr. Dunn says that at most places he visits he is handed "lemons" in small bunches, but while at Sedona he was profusely handed roses and strawberries, home raised, and brought some of both home to prove his assertion.
