JUDGE MARION H. GARNETT. OF
McKINNEY. TEXAS, DIED
Ju.lfre Marion. II. Garnett, a na
tive of thia county, died in McKinney,
Tex., at 1:30 o'clock Thursday aged
about if", yrars. Judjfe Garnett was
a native of thia county, being a son
of Ja. T. Garnett, Sr. In early man
hood he studied law and went to Tex-
seeking a location. Establishing
himself in a town, his first import
ant rime was recovering a legacy left
to an orphan girl, of which she had
beer, deprived. He was appointed
guanlian of the child'a estate and
when she grew to womanhood she
choe him as her guardian for life.
In time Mr. Garnett became a high
ly su. ceiu.ful and eminent lawyer and
for the last 16 years baa been circuit
judge of his district.
He i.t survived by his wife but no
children. Also by one brother, J.
T. Garnett, of thia county, and one
sister, Mrs. W. W. Boone, of San
Judge Garnett was a man of flu
presence, more than 8 feet tall and
weighing more than 200 pounds. His
ability and fine character were every
where recognised. He was buried In

Hec leaned Ry for
r.otlir.l.im, Aug. 23. The recent
discuasions at German headquarters
have resulted in the solution of the
Polish question to the eminent satis
faction apparently of Auxtria and of
Germany, hut not of the Poles them
selves. Emperor Charles, as a relative
nominates his llanabnrg kinsmsn, ths
Archduke Karl tcphan, as king, and
Kk?r Wilhvlm is to control the Po
lish army and economic affairs, while
the rules themselves will hav the
fullest freedom U pay the piper and
attend services of thanksgiving for
the bleiuiiniM of freedom. . -
The German piei, which announc
ed theie things with a suspicious un
animity of sudden inspiration, at
tempts t'i gild tho pill for the Poles,
hut the main facts remain that Ger
man officer r to train tho Polish
army, and that there will b closed
economic agreements and tariff ar
rangements between New Poland and
Germany, whilo the new kingdom is
plainly warned tlmt a loving attitude
of independent dependence upon
Germany, which gives all these good
things, rather than upon Austria, is
erscntinl to the bargain.
