The extent in which railroad companies
are imposed upon by pass dead beats is
MipprisinfT to an outsider says the Denver
Neivs The oflicials accept the situation as
it is reeosnizins that tiiey are bound to ba
cheated out of their revenue to some ex
tent but when a railroad man or some other
person who is entitled by reason of his posi
tion to pass privileges after having ob
tained a pass soils it to a scalper it is pro
voking Rut there is no law to reach this
class of cheats and they continue to thrive
in spite of the strictest supervision it is pos
sible for the railroad companies to exercise
over the pass department
Within the past few weeks the Denver
and liio Grande lias had several interesting
cases turn up A man by the name of f
V Van Alstyne who was agent at Malta
obtained a pass throush General Manager
Smiths office from Denver to Chicago and
return representing that his father was in
Chicago sick The man had obtained a posi
tion in Mil higan and when ho got to Chi
cago sold the return portion to a scalper In
order to insure the purchase against detec
tion lie left several of his private letters
with the scalper
Another case was that of a Chicago Bur
lington and Quincy man by the name of A
H Fulton who got a pass from a point in
Iowi to Denver and return through his
road and after reaching Denver obtained u
position on the Denver and Uio Grande at
Ked Cliff and sold the return portion of his
pass The oflicials learned of the transac
tion and he was promptly discharged
lolm Lichteburger chief clerk in Gen
eral Manager Smith s office while speaking
of the above case said Such tricks as
these do an injury to every legitimate
railway employe because the companies
tire afraid to issue passes when the privi
lege is so much abused It is to the inter
est of ewrv railroad man to catch up such
fellows

A Decision of Chairman Piuley That Causes
Considerable Surprise
CniCACo III May 31 A genuine sur
prise was occasioned in railroad envies to
day by a decision of the chairman of the
Western passenger association in which
that official gave the Chicago and Alton
railway a severe rap over the knuckles
He holds that if the Alton was not enjoying
equity with its competitors because of the
alleged operation of the boycott or because
of the alleged continuation of the conditions
under which it was granted such mutters
should have been presented under article
b section A for determination wihin the
extent of the agreement Finleys decision
is that the Chicago and Alton should pay
over to the association j200 for its offense
in failing to make effective the rule in
connection with the rate from Kansas
City to St Louis and 100 for a similar
offense in regard to the late from St Louis
and East St Louis to Chicago He further
requires that company to report to him all
tickets sold by it at unauthorized rates ba
tween the points named from May 12 to
June 4 inclusive and to pay the association
the amount that should have been charged
for such tickets at full tariff rates The
Alton is allowed until June 4 to appeal
from the chairmans decision and it will
probably either take that course or with
draw from the association

TEXAS CROPS AND WEATHER
The farming outlook of Dallas county is
excellent Cotton corn wheat and oats

Kaufman county has had for some time
past
Prospects for a fruit crop this year in
Kaufman county are better than for several
years past
Beneficial rains during the past week in
Hays county give still greater and surer
promise of rich harvests in this section
Crop prospects of Brown county are very
fair for corn and cotton and wheat and
oats will be belter than was anticipated
Grain is made now and nothing short of a
cyclone will prevent farmers from harvest
ing big crops in all parts of the Concho
country
Reports of good crop prospects reach us
from every portion of Ullis county This
will undoubtedly be a big crop year
Cotton corn wheat and oats are looking
fine in Palo Pinto county now and the pros
pects for a good general crop are better
than they have been for fifteen years past
The entire Plains country has had a
thorough soaking

throughout Lavaca county There is
abuudaree of water for stock grass and
field crops

man county is very fine and haymen are
very busy cutting and baling Prices are
stimulating
Armstrong county had fully six inches of
rainfall in May Crops of all kinds are now
in a flourishing condition Wheat oats and
rye bid fair to give tho farmer a flattering
yield at harvest time Claude News
There is a considerable amount of
sorgham planted in Swisher county this
year which will insure plenty of stock feed
for next winter
The prairies of Armstrong county aro
perfectly green Cattle and horses are fat
tening up very nicely Wheat that some
people thought would not make anything is
going to make a very nice yield

new oats were offered for sale on the public
streets today The parties bringing them
in say that they will average fifty and sixty

average crop this year is oats ranging from
first class on some farms through all grada
tions down to a failure plowed up on other

Dressmaking is h noble art In the pur
ity of its ideas it is a type of the highest
culture Ladies should go into it for it
requires tho testtietic instinct and the edu
cated taste and these belong only to the
higher and more refined temperamegi
The most beautiful dress we have evei
has been the Greek dress and in some pe
riods the Konian that i < according to
real art But such dress is not available
for our climate with its abrupt transitions
from hejit to cold nor for our business vo
cations aud conventional usages The art
ist or dressmaker of the future must study
the laws governing dress as it was in those
days and at the bame time take into con
sideration adaptations to climatic and so
cial conditions
Woman particularly when she is beauti
ful is the most attractive being in the
world and more pains should be taken to
drape and dress her than with almost any
other brunch of art I do not think that
dressmaking has ever revealed theupsthetic
beauty that is possible We have had
style and fashion but we have never had
what I regard as the highest forms of art
in dre 3 and we never can have until such
u time as it is legarded as a fine art in
stead of now as a trade aud until the time
shall come when women or men who aro
dressmakers shall be treated with the same
consideration socially or otherwise as we
today treat a painter or a sculptor Mrs

Ministers declare that in nine cases out
of ten brides are much more self possessed
than are bridegrooms when the marriage
ceremony is being performed
A shy modest looking little creature
robed in white will stand perfectly erect
looking the minister calmly aud squarely
in the eye without for an instant losing
her self possession while the big blunt six
footer of a bridegroom by her side is pale
nervous and trembling
j
One stalwart
bridegroom was so dazeuv
and overcome that he held out one of hU
own finRere for the ring when the minister
said With this ring I thee wed
Banhful Isridezrooms
Another bridegroom lost his head to such
se that when it came time for him to
r I Horace take thee Annie to be my
lawful wedded wife he said in an unnat
urally loud tone I Annie take thee
Horace tobe my lawful wedded wife
and when the time came for him to intro
duce his bride to some of his friends who
had not yet seen her he did it by saying
awkwardly Ah er Miss Carter this is
my wife Miss Barton calling her by her
maiden name
Few men say my wife easily and nat
urally the first time they use the words in
public London TitBits
