Well Known Rail-
road Man Killed.
Charlie Adams, an employe of the
Frisco railroad, running between Hu-
go and Hope, was instantly killed at
Koby, (Sawyer), Tuesday night
about 9 o'clock.
Adams, who was a brakeman and
extra conductor, was working as a
brakeman on the local freight, and
had gone in between the cars to ad-
just a coupling when the accident
happened. There were no -eye wit-
nes to the accident, the closest
man being another member of the
train crew who was a short distance
away making signals. It is not
known whether Adams got a foot
caught in a frog or stumbled and
fell. This signal man saw him go in
between the cars, and not seeing the
man or the lantern reappear gave
the signal to stop, and the body was
found at once in a horribly mutilat-
condition, the victim already being
The body had fallen directly across
the rail and was severed just above
the waist line, only one little piece of
skin holding the two parts of the
body together. From the condition
of the body the wheels of the car
must have twisted it after the fall,
for the right leg was mashed almost
into a pulp. There were no signs of
injury above the main cut across the
body. The skin was all taken from
the inside of the right arm to the
Charley Adams was one of the
best known young men of the city
and was well liked by his compan-
ions on the road for his manly qual-
ities. He was the support of a wid-
owed mother, with whom he lived on
the West Side. The family came to
Hugo from Texas, and the young
man had formerly made his home in
Terrell. The funeral occurred at the
home yesterday just after noon and
the body was shipped to Terrell
The train was in charge of Con-
ductor Campbell who also had charge
of the train upon which Frank Marks
was killed about two years ago.
The funeral was in charge of the
B. of R. T., and a committee from
that order accompanied the remains

Boh Cat Failed to Run Very Fast.
The bobcat that was captured by
a party of hunters in Oklahoma a
few days ago and brought to' Paris
has been ti**! up at the Frisco sta-
tion for several days. A party of
boys desiring to have a race bought
the cat from its owner for pie sum
of ten dollars and then carried him
to a spot in West Paris where a lot
of dogs had been gotten together.
The cat was to be released from
captivity and given a chance for hif
life in out-running the dogs—the
same system that is used in Mcxicc
in giving the natives a chance for
their lives in running faster than the
guard's bullets. The cat was just
lucky as some of the Mexicans re
cently executed—he soon met lcath
The dogs started the trail and were
soon ont<\ the bobcat. He only rar
a few blocks and then practieallj
gave up. He was captured by a com
mon cur dog, ami soon killed witl
bat little resistance. The cat is said
to have been in captivity so long that
he had gotten used to the dogs hang
ing around him, and was too tame to
run or make much of a fight for hif
life. A large crowd of young mer
had gathered in West Paris expect
ing to see a chase for several mile:
at the end of which a terrible fight
was anticipated between the dog;
IMPORTANT T OKLAHOMA
Tulsa, Okla.. April 45.—The
portancc to Oklahoma of the state de
velopment conference, to be held in
Tulsa on April 24. can hardly be ov-
estimaaed. If any plan can ever be
worked out whereby all interests may
be united for the agricultural devel
opment of this state, the Tulsa meet-
ing should furnish it. Farmers, mer
chants, bankers, jobbers, manufactur
ers; men of every business and pro
fession will get together there to dis
cuss better farm methods and way!
by which these methods may be pu
into practice generally in Oklahoma
It is believed that the crop produc
tion of this state can be doubled with
out adding a single acre to the num
ber now being farmed and it is pro
mised that practical men will b<
present in Tulsa on April 24 to tel
how this may be done. Every farm
er and business man in this country
who can leave his work for that day
should go to Tulsa and take part
this great meeting.

BROKEN NECK WONDER"
Bernard Baldwin, known far and
wide as "Barney Baldwin, the brok
en neck wonder," died last week at
the Burt hotel in Shawnee of injuries
received by falling down stairs at a
South Broadway resort.
Baldwin was formerly a frequent
visitor to Shawness, but had not beei
there much for the past three years.
He sold machines, and is also said tc
have been employed in the United
States secret service. He was injur
ed in a railroad wreck at Birnung-
to hold "the warrant himself. Not
every man who would or could do
tliis, so Mr. Linthicum got busy with
the different banks of the county and

which each bank will cash all war-

ill warrants issued by the county, as
