Porest Fires Still Burning
Dallas, Tex., Nov. 22.—The
forest tires in the Southeastern
Texas pine lands are still burn-
ing, with no prospects of stop-
ping- ®r being- controlled. In
churches at Nacogdoches, Luf-
kifl. Angelina, Newton and other
places prayers were offered today
for rain to (juench the flames, as
that is the only hope of stopping
the fires. '
A bulletin tonight from Jack-
sonville states that persons ar-
riving there today from Nacog-
doches and points between there
and Beaumont say the fire di-
rectly east of Nacogdoches is
fiercer than on yesterday.
No one can get to the tire-
swept district and estimates of
the extent ot the damage are
mere guesswork. It is known
that the flames bave crossed the
Sabine river at several points
and are burning large areas in
Vernon and Calacasieu parishes
ot Louisiana. The smoke is
becoming almost stifling at and
beyond NacogAoches. Many
persons have been made sick.
Reports reached here tonight
that extensive forest and prairie
tires are raging in the Indian
territory, ir. the country east and
west of Antlers.
The Shah of Persia's Diary
pressed at the great wealth
some of the English people:
"Many private individuals, he
wriies, "are almost as rich as the
King himself. It speaks very
highly fcr King Ec'wat ' s kind-
heartedness to say that he never
resents this great wealth existing
among his subjects, neither does
he punish them in any w.iv for
this apparent presumption.'
Oklahoma politicians are easily
stampeded. The statement that
Delegate McGuire would suppart
W. O. Cromwell of Enid for
United States district attorney,
to succeed Horace Speed, stirred
up considerable excitement among
the uninitiated. Cromwell is not
a candidate could not get the
place if he should want it, and
has not been considered by Mc-
Guire. Cromwell flopped from
Populist last fall and was given
his reward at the close of the
campaign for speech-making.

Extracts from the diary of the
Shah of Persia, who has quite re-
cently been visiting England and
a few other European countries,
are here given to the world for
the first tune. His Imperial Maj-
esty's opinion and impressions
are set down in a most quaint
manner and provide the greatest
amusement i> reading.
The Shah vras mightily im-
pressed by the greatness and in-
corruptibility or the London po-
lice. and wrote concerning them
"The English police gentle-
men are men of the greatest cul-
ture and honor. Unlike those
of many countries, 1 have been
imformed that the police of Eng-
land and the U nited States are
almost incorruptible, and it is
impossible to bribe them except
by the touch of gold. These
officers carry .themselves with
great dignity, but there have
been occasions on which they
have even been knowu to be pre-
sent when the public peace has
been threatened by certain un-
seemly and riotous citizens."
The Shah has a very poor
opinion of the English climate,
lit one may judge from the follow-
"It is very nececsary for the
people of England to wash tho-
roughly and frequently in order
to.clear themselves from the con-
stant fogs and rains that fall up-
on ithem. So much do the people
t f Britain love water that they
sometimes wash twice dailv.

of the canal itself, but of the •id-

that the Lord forgot to give
Moses the eleventh and most im-

shalt not smoke, chew or snuff."
He suspects that tnis command-
ment was graven on the stone
tablets, but that the tobacco
trust hired the Stone Cutters'
union of Palestine, No. 13, to
cut it off when Moses was asleep.
