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
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

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.

RESOLUTIONS OF RESPECT.

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

endearing excellencies of character
shall blossom to full fruition, our be

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

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
