G. A. Neeley of Chandler, was
in town on business Wednesday.
Rev C. W. Musgrove went to
Agra Wednesday to preach the fun
eral of Emma Mabel Hart' aged 2
years, 3 months and 5 days, daugh-
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Hart.
The protracted meeting at the
Christian church will begin on Sun-

postponed to that date on a count of
the prevalence of diptheria in and
On account of the board of health
requesting that there should be no
public gatherings in town for two
weeks, the entertainment by the Per-
kins Ladies band, advertised for the
17th,has been indefinitely postponed.
When a girl asks to look at a
man's watch its safe to Say she
doesn't care to know the time, but
to see if there is a worn in's pic-
ture in the case.
There are no new cases ofjdip-
theria in town or vicinity, and those
affected have recovered. We are
informed there were but few genuine
cases of diptheria here, but a rum-
ber of cases of sore throat, but all

If you want to make an allround
tough of your boy, says an ex-
change, just butt in and take his
iide of every question which comes
between him and his teacher or the
neighbor's children ; and if you want
him to have a gocd start to the pen-
itentiary be shure to let him know
that he can always depend upon
your assistance in whatever trouble
he gets into, right or wrong.
Poor Old Russia
If dependence can be pla:ed in
the press dispatches, Russia faces
a situation today more critical than
was even presented to her during
the entire Russian-Japanese war.
It is a situation so grave as to vir-
tually alarm the world and the crisis
threatens the destruction of the Ro-
manhoff dynasty, and upon the ruins
and ashes of the most autocratic
and absolutely despotic government
on the earth today, cause to builded
a government along the bioad dem-
ocratic lines of humanity and free-
dom. That country is rent by riot
and bloodshed. Business of all
kinds is virtually paralized. 1 he
railroads and manufacturing plants
are tied up by strikes. Public
meetings demanding a popular gov-
ernment are being held all over the
Empire and daily hundreds of the
military and many of royalty are
going over to the side of the op-
pressed and down trodden people-
Added to this famine and pestilence
are stalking abroad in the land and
it is estimated that millions of people
are on the verge of starvation.
Things Women Don't Do
There are women in Carney who
will call the attention of their hus-
bands to the following paragraph:
Arnolds Are Interesting.
Matt Duhr, writing from Chand-
ler to the State Capital, gives the
following bit of history of well
known parties in this neighborhood.
Lincoln county has two farmers
that claim, and no doubt are, lineal
decendents of Benedict Arnold.
George, and his cousin, Benedict
Arnold who live near Carney,are the
gentlemen. Both are iron-proof re-
publicans. Benedict owns the finest
and most artistic front yard in the
country. His 23 queerly trimed
cedar trees are botanical curiosities,
Benedict Arnold is a natursl born
landscape gardener. George Ar-
nold has been republican central
committeeman from Otoe township
the last six years. He is left-hand-
ed but is one of the finest scribes in
the county. He hu ks 80 bushels of
corn six days in the week. George
Arnold is about as good a shooter
as the famous Bogardus. He shot
12,000 quails in one winter and his
dog Kibby fetched every one of the
dead birds to George. He was
raised in Kansas and worked six
years for Senator Harris.
George Arnold is a noted raiser
of bird dogs. His bird-dog flesh
is worth several hundred dollars.
He shipped several sharp nosers
to Missouri and Arkansaw. George

the sport to the contrary.
For Health and Recreation
Corpus Christi, Aranses Harbor and
Rockport and the surrounding sec-
tions are nnique. Tempered by the
Gulf breezes, the extremes of heat
and cold are unknown. Winter here
is but a name—the clear, bright,
sunshiny days, and the al'uring out-
of-docr pleasures are i" such mark-
ed contrast to the chilly north. Now
the bays and inland lakes are fairly
alive with wild-ge se, red-heads,
mallaids and other feathered game,

of tiresome length. I want you to

Secretary of the Treasury should

never seen a woman go fishing with
a bottle in her pocket sit on the
bank all day and go home drunk at
night. Nor have I ever seen a vo-
man yank off her coat and say she
could lick any man in town."
Texas is building or planning so
many new railroads that it is next
to impossible to keep track of them.
When they are all completed Tex-
as will not fall tar short of having
fifty per cent more main tracks than
Illinois, which was the state of
greatest railroad mileage until re-
cently, when the iron horse took a
fresh spurt over the boundless areas
of the Lone Star state.
