VINDICATED IN THE COURTS.
Mrs. Doss is Divorced From
Kennedy and Assumes Her
After long and tedious litigation
between man and wife in the McLen
nan county courts tho trouble was
finally settled today in tho district
oourt by a decision in favor of tho
plaintiff in the case of Mrs.
B. J. Kennedy vs. J. M. Kennedy
suit for divoroo. Tho fight in tho
courts however has not been confined
to tho suit for divorce. A difficulty
many months ago in whioh violenoe
as used rosulted in two complaints
being lodged againBti hia wife by Mr.
Kennedy. In ono cf theso sho was
oonviotcd in the justiso court, but an
anneal to tho county oourt resulted in
her aoauittal. Tho other case tried
beforo Justioo Gallagher re
sulted in a verdic
in her favor. In the moan time Mr.
James I. Moore her attorney filod suit
for divorco for his client and today
Judge Goodrich giauted tho samo
together with right to re-assume hor
former name, that of Mrs. Battie J.
Doss. Thus it is soon that Mrs.
Dobs has been vindicated in all things
by the courts, and her mny friends
will rojoioe with her in her triumphs.
The carpenter who was hart at the
Waco Female College yesterday, was
Columbus Seitzler. He was carried
to his residence 908 South Fifteenth
street. Dr. Curtis, his physician, states
that his wound is not serious being
only scalp wound. The skull was laid
bare for about four inches. He suf
fers more from tho concussion than
the wound. The cause of the accident
was the breaking of the supports ot a
derrick and was similar in every way,
except its fatal results, to the accident
in which Contractor Ulander lost his
life in the construction of the oity hall.

Washington, Maroh 30. Reports
aro current hero that tho government
has agreed to pay Italy an indemnity
of'$2u,000 for tho killing in Now
Orleans and that this proposition has
been accepted and Minister Porter
will return from Homo at onco. Tho
state department is, of oourso, Bilent
on tho subject, but thero is reason to
bohevo tbero is somo truth in tho
story. It is not probable that an ab
solute agreement has been entered
into, as the matter probably might
have beon submitted to congress. But
thero's reason to believe that tho
president and state department havo
indicatod a willingness to bo recom
mend to congress. It is supposed
that this is tho proposition whioh came
from tho Italian government, and the
feeling here in that if this num will
heal the diplomatic wounds, the easiest
and beet thing will be to pay it,

Assortment of all the Latest
and Makes of
A Proposed .Extension.
It is rumored that in a few days the
work of extending the Citizens' Street
Railway Company will extend their
line out to the Manntown' Park, and
finally on out to the race track. This
extension would be of great benefit to
property owners beyond Bell's Hill
and so enhance the value of real estate
as to justify them in lending the com
pany substantial aid in carrying out
this project. The park above reforred
to is susceptible of being made one of
the most beautiful places in or around
Waoo, and would, hence, be a place
of common resort for parties desiring
to spend a few hours away from the
heat and dust of the city, during the ,
summer months, where the refreshing
breezes would fan away, during leisure
hours, the dull cares of everyday busi
ness life aud a quaff oi the pure arte
sian water, there already flowing, give
new life and zest for its resumption on
the morrow. Let, this extension be
made and ere long thereafter Waco
will have at least one park to which
she can point with pride.
