Edward Kennedy of Altus, Ok.
was in Dallas yesterday on his
way to headquarters .from Aus

arrangements to secure a char-
ter for the Texas divisions of the
Altus, Roswell and El Paso Rail
road, of which he is president
He says that 122 miles of the
line has been graded and is
ready for the steel.
"The grade is finished between
Altus and Hollis and between
Roswell and Lubbock." Mr. Ken
nedy said, "The work is being
done between Silverton and
Lockney. Contract is to be let on

The following letter was sent
us by Mr. Chas. W. Green, of
"Skeletons found about two
years ago, but have never been
reported. They were found on
Section 20, on the place of Mr.
Henry Mangis. They were found
by Mr. Hub Harris, who lived on
the place. The land where the
skeletons were found was once
in cultivation, but the soil
being of deep sand, the wind
formed a small hill. It is an
evident fact that the bodies of
the skeletons were buried there
after the forming of the hill, and
the high winds uncovered them.
The land has not been in cultiva-
tion since for several years, on
account of the deep sand. The
skeletons seem to be those of
white people, from the appear-
ance of the skulls. It might be
that the mystery as to who they
>nce were could be solved.
Such things have been done."
Fish and iiame Law.
The following is a brief sum-
mary of the newly enacted fish
and game law:
All wild animals and wild birds
found in this state are the prop-
erty of the state.
Game or wild animals can not
be killed after night—"one half
hour after sunset, or one half
hour prior to sunset." No gun
I larger than a ten gauge calibre
can be used at anv time.

Pheasants can not be killed or

bock will also be a freight and

short line from Roswell to Lub-

to get our charter from Texas,
and have already shown $500,000

FIRST NATIONAL BANK, HOLLIS
Despite the high winds which
had prevailed for several days,
C. W. Gilliland.L. W. McGlotlihn,
W P. Fewell and J. L. Lamkin
started last Tuesday morning
for their annual visit to the wan-
dering streamlet which has
largely contributed to the fame
of Duke and Olustee. They were
ambitious of tempting with many
a baited hook the monster turtles
which find perennial sport in the
limpid waters of Turkey creek,
and mock the feeble efforts of
fishermen to tempt them with
tasty morsel to forsake their
slimy luxury; or, with a keener
relish, to occassionally bear aloft
for visual proof some plump trout
or channel cat which in a moment
of temporary absent mindedness
risked its tender gills upon their
pointed hooks. It is thrilling to
hear these cheerful fishermen
regale their friends with many a
story of how they dared the fury
of an angry cat, or caught an en
raged buffalo by the horns.

Quite a wave of vocal music
enthusiasm has struck our town,
which is a very hopeful sign for
its religious future. No church
service can be in the highest de-
gree successful which does not
have a feeling song service.
Prof. G. L. Lindsey of Spring-
field, Mo., began a class in vocal
music at the Baptist church last
Monday night. His terms are
reasonable, and in his efforts to
inspire the soul with a yearning
for the divine art, he should meet
with the co-operation of all the
people. His term lasts twenty
nights, but in order that the
young people may not lose an in-
terest in the study, he may con-
tinue the classwork till Prof.
H. N. Lincoln's normal begins,
on June 7.
Everybody knows of Prof.
Lincoln He has stood in the
forefront of vocal music in Texas
and the South for many years.
He has studied in foreign coun-
tries to more thoroughly equip
himself for teaching those death-
less principles so woven in sa-
His normal will continue for
twenty days, at the close of
which he will give a grand recital.
This will be one of the greatest
recitals ever given in all this
