Tales of tbe Lamented David B.
Culberson. Related By
Hon. Champ Clark.
I shall always consider it among tbe
greatest blessings of my life, writes
Champ Clark in the Dallas News, that
David Browning Culberson, of Texas,
w&a mv closest neighbor on the left
'Old Dave," as he was affeotionately
oalled by Texas papers; "Judge," as
ba was generally addressed; "Colonel,"
as a few ex-soldiers named mm; -me
Sleeping Samson," as some fanciful
newspaper man dubbed bim.
His wealth of dark-brown curly hair,
the style of his beard and bis frontal
development recalled to me the pic
tures of Charles Dickens when the
great novelist was in his best estate,
only the Texan was oast in a larger
mold. He stood 6 feet 2 inches and
weighed 240 pounds and was a splendid
type of physical and intellectual man
hood in its rich and golden autumn.
Judge Culberson was a big-bodied,
large-headed and warm-hearted man.
To us younger members he was a sort
of oongressional father. We went to
him when in doubt, especially on any
legal propos.tlon, and he generously
gave us from his inexhaustible 6 tore of
wisdom and law learning. He didn't
make as much noise and get into the
papers as often as Reed, Burrows, Crisp
and many others, but when he did
sneak it was an event in the house.
His colieagues always heard him glad
ly. He was willing to unselfishly
furnish ammunition for "the boys" and
delighted to see them winning honors
and golden opinions.
There was a ma?elveness about him
very suggestive of reserve powers, of
which he had more than any other
man in congress.
The day that Speaker Crisp peremp
torily ordered Mr. lieed to take his
seat and. when the ex-speaker refused,
commanded the sergeant-at-arma to ar
rest him as " the man from Maine"
wended his sulky way to his desk,
Judge Culbsraon said eotto voice:
"See Jumbo return to his stake."
Tbe southwesterners say the judge
was a great stumper. la the famous
prohibition fight he sided with the cold
water crowd. On one occasion a big
fellow, sitting on the baok of a bench
in a church, with a flask of whisky in
his ou.side pocket, kept interrupting
Every time h9 would lean forward to
ask a question his bottle would nearly
fall out of his pocket. At last Culber
"Bill, if you don't look out you will
loss your argument, "at tbe same time
niacin? bia hand on his own breast
about where William oarried his bot
tle. The hit was potent and the au
dience eave Bill such a racket that he
held his peace and wagged his tongue
no more that day
I once saw Judge Culberson electrify
and astonish the houeeinamostuniqua
One of the most frequent requests
made by members Is for "unanimous
consent to extend remarks in the lie
curd." which is hardly ever refused.
Just now tbe senate la making a feeble
effort to curtail this privilege. While
individually I make little use of it. I
sometimes doubt whether its abolition
would prove profitable. As it is, a
member may, and frequently does, con
tent himself with delivering the showy
parts of his speech and printing the
more tedious but substantial parte,
This process certainly saves time,
even if it increases the bulk of the
record, and, as It costs a pot of money
per hour to run Congress it saves
money. Another thing if members
are not permitted to print, tbey will
However that may be, one day Judge
Culberson was making some remarks, -and
the hammer fell upon him in me
diae res. He said :
'Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous "
The speaker, suppposing ba was
making the usual request, didn't wait
for him to finish, but rattled off the
stereotyped formula: "The gentleman
from Texas asks unanimous consent to
extend his remarks in tbe record."
"Mr. Speaker, Mr. Speaker." shout
ed Culberson, "you got that wrong! I
didn't desire to extend my remarks.
What J want is leave to withdraw all
I have said!"
This was such an unheard of perfo -mance
that it knocked tbe speaker all
of a heap, and it was several seconds
be fore he stated Culberson's strange
request. The members laughed and
whooped till they nearly cracked the
Tbe hardest body blow the anti-ex-paationlsts
ever received was from
one of Judge Culberson's epigrams.
Somebody was urgulng the matter with
him, and he replied, "Yes, but we have
done expanded;" a sentence much
harder f answer than it would be to
refute a dozen long speeches.
Judge Culberson was one of the very
few men whose usefulness was dimin
ished by his modesty. In this age of
brass that is distinction enough for
one man, and I have no doubt that,
eave for this modesty and indifference
to fame, he could have been the most
renowned statssmao of this age.
Judge Culberson had a large, varie
gated and lucrative law practice. His
career as a criminal lawyer was sim
ply astounding and placed h m easily
at the bead of that class of practition
ers in America, perhaps in tbe world.
He defended 110 men for murder in
tbe first degree and saved all their

A Cloudcroft Admirer
The following is from the Brockton,
Mass., Times, showing that the fame
of Cloudcroft is sprenairg abroad:
Mrs. A. W. Dellquest, formerly Mln
Grace E. Gruber of this city, is spend
ing a few weeks at Cloudcroft, a de
lightful retreat, on the top of the Sac
ramento mountain in New Mexico.
Mrs. Dellquest describes tbe place as
"a paradise, truly." It is 100 miles
from El Paso, Texas., and 9000 feet
above the sea level. On the top of this
mountain, writes Mrs. Dellquest, are
all tbe beautiful flowers of the east,
and the tall, stately pines are here,
with al! the bold characteristics of the
west. Over this cloud-climbing route
are many magnificent bridges of most
wonderful construction, costing thou
sands of dollars. Up the Saoramento to
Cloudcroft tbe road is a continuation or
curves, giving one the delightful sen
sation experienced while riding the
toboggan chute. The paintings of na
ture along the route are magnificent.
When on the top of the Sacramento,
writes Mrs. Dellquest, one feels like a
"god" looking down on the earth.
A GREAT EVENT
Tbe Las Vegas Musical Festival.
The Las Vegas Musical Festival
which takes place tonight and tomor

"It Is a surprising fact," says Prof.
Houton, that in my travels in all
parts of tbe world, for to tbe last ten
years, 1 nave met more people naving
used Green's August Flower than any
other remedy for dyspepsia, deranged
liver and stomach, and for constipa

or for persons filling office positions,
where headaohes and general bad feel

Green's Angus Flower is a grand
remedy. It does not injure the system
