The pyovisions of the will of the
late John Twohig, of San Antonio,
are very surprising and sensational
in their nature on account of the
comparatively insignificant bequests
to bis relatives, considering that his
wealth is estimated at $3,000,000.
He leaves nearly 'the whole bulk of
this fortune to Bishop Nerez or his
successor, to be held in trust in pro
moting the interest of the Catholic
church, of which the deceased was a
devout member for many years.
Miss Kate Twohig, his sister, is to
receive $2,500 per annum for the
first two years, and $2,000 per an
num for the lemainder oi her life.
His brother and nephew in Ireland
are each willed $50 per annum, pay
able semi-annually, and to a sister in
Boston he gives 250 per year. No
gratuity is left to the bank clerks or
anyone in his employ. W. S. Smith

Miss Lucy Hoffman Saturday bought
a ticket for tho ground floor with a
reserved seat coupon. On entering
the door John Gammon, the head
usuor, informed her that she could
not sit down stairs, but could go up
to the family circle. Mrs. Hoffman,
the girl's mother, becoming enraged
at this act on the part of Gammon,
procured a cowhide and went hunt
ing for Gammon. She found him on
the corner of Main and Preston
streets, where there was a big crowd,
and proceeded to lay on the lash.
Fuither sensational developments
In the Davis gin, which burned
near Bonham last Monday at noon,
fifty bales of cotton were totally des
troyed by fire and seventy-five or a
hundred were so badly burned that
they will scarcely bring anythingin
the market. The gin was not in
sured, and caught fire from the fric
tion of the gin saw. Tho flames
Bashed over the whole room in a
second's time. It would perhaps
have been saved, but the dirt-dob-bers
had stopped up the steam-pipe
leading to the lint-room and prevent
ed the steam from reaching the
room. One farmer lost seventeen
bales of cotton which he had been
saving to pay off a mortgage on his
farm, and which fell duo Tuesday.
Ho expected to take the cotton to
Bonham the next day and lift it, but
he lost all, and perhaps his farm will
be sold. The burning of this gin
was a great calamity to the whole
community for six or seven miles
aiound, and will be the cause of
