AN OLD MAN'S Ai Lorenzo D. Curtis was tried be Judge Gates last Friday on a charge of adultery, found guilty and sent over the road in default of $1500 bail. The circumstance's of this case are rather peculiar. Curtis, who is an old man, not less thsn sixty, was a mer chant in business at Cisco, Texas, where he has a wife and quite a fam ily, haviug sixteen granu children. In the fall of '92 he took a trip back to his old home in Georgia, taking advantage of excursions to that state. While on the journey he fell in with a widow by the name of J. J. Baits, whose home was at Paslestioe, Texas. He seemed to bo quite struck with her and on the return of both parties to their homes, he opened a corres pondence with her, representing himself to be a widower. He finally proposed marriage, which was accept ed. Curtis sold off his stock and made preparations to .leave Cisco, representing to his wife that he would go to seek a location. lie went to Palestine, and Mrs. Baits left with him, he agreeing to marry her at Deni son, but put the marriage off upon arriving there. They came to Pur- cell last February and put up for a weeb- or two at the Central Hotel. They went from there te a room rent. ed of Miss Gray in tLe Beeler build ing only a few nighis before the build ing was burned. The fire cause 1 them to seek another home, which they found at Hazelwood's. At all these.'places they represented them selves as man and wife and were thonght to be such. Tho old man had some money and in connection with two other parties he bought the lease of a ranch out on Dibble, Creek where he was living with his forty-year-old charmer when j arre,ted The deserted wife at Cisco was not long in discovering that her recreant spouse was not alone in his flight, and she began her search for him and his paramour. A drummer who had known Curtis at Cisco saw him here and on a subsequent visit to Cisco dropped a few remarks that put the wife on the track. She came here and in a short time had the game run to earth, with the results above stated. Purcell Register. HOLIDAY EXCURSIONS.

At a meeting of the American Legion of Honor, Chickasaw Coun cil, No. 1232, the following resolutions were adopted: Whereas, That Supreme and All wise power that created the earth and all things therein, Who holds in His hands the destinies of nations, and at whose command the Heavens roll back as a scroll, a power to whom we all bow in reverence and submis sion, has 6een fit to remove from our midst and to transplant to a lovelier and fairer world, where the many and endearing excellencies of character shall blossom to full fruition, our be loved sister, Sarah Agnes Whitting ton, and while we yield, our love, sub mission and obedience to that power that doeth all things well, be it Resolved: That in the death of our beloved sister, the earth has lost one of its loveliest characters, the commu nity a true Irieud and companion, the church an earnest, faithfnl christian worker, whose ear was ever open to the Master's call, and whom grim death could not appall at bis an proach: for she was ready to go home to her Savior. The bereaved hus band and children lose a wite and mother, whose vacant place no one ean till, whose memerv and loving care will remain enshrined in the hearts of those she loved in life, until time and death shall be no more and that this Lodge has lost a well beloved sister, whose many deeds of kindness endeared her to all our hearts; and that our sympathies go out to the bereaved family in this their time of sorrow and deep dis tress.

A MONK OF MUSCLE, Mm Rattled With a nully and Knookaa Him In m Cocksd Ban. When Sir Richard Burton was trans ferred from Fernando Po to the con sulate of Santos and Ban Paulo, there wae a tunicary of Capachtna, French men and Italians, which contained some curious specimens of muscular Christianity. For example: "One of the monks was a tall, magnificent, and very pow erful mu, so ex-cavalry officer. Count Bomebody, whose name I forget, then Fray G . Before he arrived there wae a bully in town, rather of a free thinking class, so he need to go and swagger up and down before the sem inary and call out: "Coma out yon miserable pettieoated monks! Come out and have a free fight for Oo or the devfl.' When Fray O arrived be heard of this, and it so happened he had liad a English friend, when be was with his regimes tt who bad tsmght him the use of his fiat. He found that his brother monks wu dreadfully distressed at this un seemly challenge, t he said: 'The next time he cocoes, don't open the fate, bat let the porter call me.' "So the next time the bally ap peared, It was so arranged that the gate was opened by Fray O (the auai crowd bad collected in the road to see the fun), wno looked at him laughingly and said, 'Surely brother, we will fight for Ood or the devil. If you plea.' So sayiog the friar turned up his sleeves and gown, and told his adversary to 'oome on,' wbion he did, and he was immediately knooksd into a cocked bat. 'Come, get up' said the friar. 'No lying there and whimpering; the devil won't win that way.' The man stood three rounds, at the end of which he whim pered aad halloaed for mercy, and amidst the Jeers and bravos of a large 4towd the viUage cock' retired, a taaaa of jelly and palp, and was never Seen within more than half a mile ot the seminary. . . FLOP OVElt Ma Editcr Ardmoeeite -The dis tinguished and celebrated editor of the Chieftain, in. a short para graph of nis o)ost recent issue dis poses of our idea of a munjcipl Kovernment to his own satisfaction by intimating that as he has tried the system once end faileck We the citiaens of Ardmore are not capable of carrying it to a success ful issue. In the same issue only on another page appears four solid columns under a big scare had of resolves, to wits, whereases and ex planatory notes . regarding and appertaining to the Chickasaw Nation's method of governing its territory which Bro. Mc. has here tofore seen fit to criticise and for which criticisms he is threatened with expulsion from the nation. Sow if the non-citizens can not govern themselves locally and the citizens can not govern themselves nationally to the satisfaction of our esteemed friend why wont some of the powers that be, create a small sized kingdom, people it with willing subjects and plating on the throne thereof surmounted by a glittering crown our fellow journalist, let him show to the vulgar world his own pet method of ruling. 'Twould be a Eight worth going many miles to witness and Cardinal L d ter as ' the power behind the throne w.'uld make a fitting setting for the scene. It seems to us the Chieftains chief has hardly given this matter proper consideration since it was first spoken of in the Akdmoreite. It seems to us his objections are absurd. It seems to u he should hare agitated this matter before as it is of so much importance to to the city in which he lives and it seems to us he should not get on the dumps be cause he was not the originator of the scheme but shou'd help us pull the proposition through by taking the advice in the heading above and "Flop over Mc.'! Many Citizens. Brass buttons, whea sent in an en velope to a young roan, means that the young man either possesses too much er not enough of the brassy article. We leave the true definition of the matter in the hands of a cer taiu young lady and gentleman in this city. However, these mat ters ge nerally adjust themselves, and, be lieving this, we are surs that such to kens of a lack of the article named or sn overabundance of the same will be amicably adjusted by the parties concerned.
