pirn tockett Crushed Beneath a Heavy
Stick of Timber at the Furniture
Tom Lockett, son of Mr. C. C.
Lockett, met with a serious ac
cident at the furniture factory
Tuesday morning, as a result of
which 5ie will be a cripple for
many weary weeks. He was
assisting in unloading some
heavy timbers from a flat car.
In some manner the end of the
Ipg at which he was working
suddenly rolled down on him,
striking him just above the right
Jniee, and knocking him down,
fell across his leg. An immense
bruise marks the place where the
ponderous log struck, and it is
feared the muscles of the limb
may be permanently injured.
Ihr. W. A. Lockett dressed the
-wound, and gave it as his opinion
that no bones were broken.

There are scenes to which with
lineerinj? fondness the heart
turns to refresh itself. Tuesday
evening represented such a scene
at the residence of Mr. and Mrs.
S. Epstein. The occasion was
one of a dual nature, commemor-"

versary of the order's existence,
and being also a complimentary
gathering in honor of the Lady

its enumeration indicates, is the
pioneer organization of the Lone
Star Commonwealth. It is com
monly supposed that a secret
organization with a distinctively
feminine membership cannot ex
ist for any great length of time,
but in the light of this three
years record it must be admitted
that such a proposition is not
only erroneous but also absurd.
The organization has from
time to time temporarily dis
carded the rigor of it3 seclusion
and laid aside the mystery of its
secrets sufficiently for the gen
eral public to get glimpses of its
precepts, principles and purposes,
and to be convinced that as an
organization it oucht to h en
