Ill III Mill III Mill I III I Neighborhood Notes. I I l-t-H TEXAS. AN OLD SOUVENIR. Dr. F. Harnesberger of Beckville, writes to the Dallas News as follows: "I noticed in yesterday's News an ac count of a "relic of the campaign of 18J0 a button worn by partisans of Douglas and Johnson." and found by Mr. Hawley at Hutchins. I have a souvenir or the campaign of 1840. which takes .us back sixty years, and to the hottest campaign ever waged in this country. The souvenir is appar ently pure copper, and is nearly the size of a half dollar. On one side is a complete likeness of ex-President Harrison's grandfather, who was at the time a candidate for the presiden cy. Just above his picture is "Major General W. H. Harrinon." and just be neath is "Born Feb. 9. 1773." On the other side is the log cabin that is his toric and a pole running up from the top bearing the United States flag. To the left of the cabin stands a large magnolia tree, and under the tree is a well and a cup sitting on it. The logs and the openings to the house are as distinct as yesterday, and General Har rison looks grand in his uniform. Just above the house is "The People's Choice;" just beneath. "The Hero of Tippecanoe." This souvenir was found under the ruins of an old house back in Geor gia when I was a child and it has been in my possession ever since. It makes a unique watch charm and I have been wearing It as such for years, and the wearing makes It brighter and more beautiful. I have never found any one that ever saw but this one and I have often thought that I would write ex-President Harrison to know if he had one of them." A PECULIAR ACCIDENT. - Lee Martin, a resident of Coke coun ty, cut his throat accidentally while shaving himself. He almost complete ly severed his wind pipe. He fell heavily to the floor and his wife who was in another room came to his as sistance. A physician was summoned, the wound was sewed up .and he was taken to San Angelo for further treat ment. Physicians say that the wound is not necessarily fatal. He was thrown from a horse a few years ago and re ceived injuries from which he never fully recovered. The injuries cause him to have nervous and cramping spells and it is supposed that during one of these attacks he cut himself. SHIPPED TO NEW YORK. The remains of Steve Brodie. the bridge Jumper and all round sporting man. who died from pulmonary trouble in San Antonio were shipped to New York for burial and were accompanied by his wife and daughter. Miss Inez Brodie, who have been with him dur ing his illness. The body was escorted to the Inter national and Great Northern depot by a detail from the local lodge of Eagles of which he was a member. There was no funeral ceremony of any kind in this city. Mrs. Brodie stated that her husband had $10,000 insurance on his life. DETERMINED TO DIE. M. G. Witaker killed himself at the residence of his brother, R. D. Witaker. in Nacogdoches. He cut his throat in several places with a razor and then jumped into a well. He was rawn out of the well alive, but died in a few minutes. He was subject to mental depressions and had before been in the asylum at Satf Antonio. He was a single man about forty years of age. and belonged to one of the best pioneer families. His father was a San Ja cinto veteran. A FREAK OF NATURE. A freak of nature was found by J. C. Yoakum, near Honey Grove, last week. It was half pig and half calf, the head and body being that of a calf, while the lower jaw. legs and feet were those of a hog. It was dead when found. I NEW MEXICO. PRINTER MYSTERIOUSLY DISAP ( PEARED. Ed G. Seamands, a printer who was recently employed on the Raton Re porter, is missing and his wife would like to know where he is. He went to Trinidad. Colo., on business on the 20th ult. to work on a paper. He work ed on the 21st and attended a show at the opera house that night. Since that time no trace of him can be found. His wife is sick and has been making every effort in her power to locate him but hes so far been unsuccessful. She says her husband had about $300 on his person when he went to Trinidad and she fears foul play. Such appre hension has almost prostrated her. Mr. Seamands was exemplary in his hab its and the only explanation of his mysterious disappearance seems to be DUTCH NEW YEAR WAS CELEBRATED. Appropriate Entertainment Held at Jarilla.

TO HAVE ELECTRIC CARS. It now begins to look like Las Ve gas will soon have electric street cars. All that stands in the way is the grant ing of the franchise by the city council. For several days a St. Louis capitalist with an attorney and secretary has been in Las Vegas looking over the field. They have decided that the in vestment would be paying and are willing to put in the plant. They have already obtained an option on the track which is already there and over which horse cars are pulled, and the new line will run on the same streets and others. It is believed that the council will grant the franchise, as all the property holders whose property is along the route are willing for them to do so. SHAFT HOUSE BURNED. The shaft house of the Santa Fe Gold and Copper company at San Pe dro burned to the ground on the night of the first inst. The cause of the fire had not been determined at last re port. No one was injured in the fire. The damage amounts to about $20,000. J. T. McLaughlin, the manager of the company was in Albuquerque on busi ness and was not at the mine Then the house burned. MEXICO. EDITORS IN JAIL. The editors of the "Jalisco Libre" and "El Paladin." of Guadalajara, are in jail on charges of defamation of character. The trouble of the Intter arose from a letter which appeared in his paper over the signature of Henry J. Brennan. Brennan denies the auth orship of the letter, which accused Edward F. Blewitt. the engineer of the firm of Boyle & Foy who are mak ing municipal improvements in Guad alajara, of having attempted to poison Mr. Brennan in the City of Mexico. The case is a very complicated one and lengthy litigation is liable to grow out of it. Mr. Brennan says he was asked by representatives of "El Paladin" to make a statement for publication and refused. eH was then asked to make one not for publication and he did. Then it was published and his name signed to it. The Jalisco Libre then took a hand in tue matter and said too much, but it is held by many that the imprisonment of both editors is ille gal on account of it being out of the jurisdiction of the Guadalajara courts. This matter will have to be settled by the courts as well as the rest of the trouble. Sensational facts are liable to be aired in the courts when the cases come to trial. i (FOUGHT FOR GIRL. Otto Jenkins, a former resident of Phoenix. Ariz., has returned to that city from Mexico where he lias been engaged in the mining business and I tells of a brutal fight which took place in the Nacosari district between an American named Barnes and a Mexican named Morales. The two were infat uated with a native girl and has fre quently quarrelled over her. Finally the agreed to fight it out and that the best man should have the girl. They met with a few friends some distance from Nacosari, made an arena and with bared fists in London prize ring style, fought for forty-three rounds. They fought nearly three hours and both were frightfully punished. Mor ales finally fell, senseless from the hun dreds of blows rained on his body and head by his opponent. He is injured internally and Jenkins said that just befoie he left he heard that the doc tor attending him had said he tould not recover. Barnes is also severely in jured and suffering greatly from the l i . . v. n tlw : i ... I When he knocked the Mexican out he j fell exhausted. Jenkins says the Mex ican authorities have taken no steps in the matter. MEMORIAL SERVICE. Impressive was the memorial ser vice held in the City of Mexico last Saturday morning in honor of the de ceased queen of England. The decor- , ations of the church were severely plain but effective and in good taste. The edifice was draped in black hang ings. The only floral adornment was a huge cross, seven feet in height and t correspondingly broad, formed of white flowers. This cross was placed behind the altar and was very effective, stand ing out against the sable drapery. The porch of the church outside was sur mounted by a British royal escutcheon draped in the diplomatic flag, which is the same as the anion jack, except that it has the royal arms in the cen ter, surrounded by a wreath of oak leaves. Bishop Hamilton, of San Fran cisco preached a brief eulogy t:pon the queen and other noted ministers participated in the services. tions, from a period 2000 before Christ, up to historical facts in later centur ies and up to the present time. The guests did not depart before the wee hours in the morning, but every one with the impression of having spent a brilliant evening. A SEASON OF OPERA. It will awaken considerable interest among our theater goers, to know that the Andrews Opera Co. are willing to give us a season of operas, providing the necessary guarantee can be raised. The company is large and expensive and every assurance is given that they will eclipse all previous efforts. The cherished opportunity has now arrived and there will doubtless be a large subscription for seats. There is always dancer in using counterfeits of DeWltt's Witch Hazel Salve.

No Importance attached to the act of sit ting. No chickoas were hatched, al though several eggshell were empty. While munching the matutiual meal Mr. Hoodie received a letter. "Listen to this!" he cried excitedly. "The Temple, W. C. Dear Sir We beg to inform you that our late client, Mr. Richard McCouomy. has bequeathed to you the sum of 1,000. Be good enough to call at your earliest convenience. Yours very truly, Sharpe & Steele." Mrs. Boodle overset her coffee cup In her excitement. Never before had such unexpected fortune visited the modest abode of the Boodles. "Mr. MeCononiy dead and left you 1, 000!" she cried in an I can't believe it tone. "I shouldn't have dreamed of such a thing." "Suppose you should, Mrs. Boodle. "What then?" returned the elated Mr. Boodle, waving the letter in his wife's face. "Suppose you'd dreamed he hadn't? Take some dreams to uuwrite tuis letter, wouldn't it? It would take a pretty pow erful dream that could unmake poor old Dick's will, eh?"' Here a thought struck him. "By Jove! Wonder if they'll charge we six and eightpence for sending me the information? I shan't pay it. It'll have to cone out of the estate." Mrs. Boodle often told her husband he was a very mean man. He was. "But why has he left you -1.000?" he pcr slstpd. "Mrs. Boodle," returned Mr. Boodle, with that loftiness of manner which an unexpected legacy often leads a man to assume, "Mr. McConomy is dead. If ever I meet him and remember your question. Ill ask him. If you are about, I'll let you know what he says. Just tap the window, will you? Here's my bus." "You needn't get on your high horse. Benjamin, if you have bad a legacy left you." retorted Mrs. B., moving to the window. "Not going to, my dear. I prefer to sit next the driver. " And Mr. Boodle cram med his hat upon his head and rushed from the room. An hour later a double knock on the street door disturbed Mrs. Boodle while building several pretty airy castles on the legacy. "A telegram, ma'am." said Mary Jane. Mrs. Boodle tore open the envelope with eager, trembling fingers. Married ladies invariably open telegrams with eager, trembling fingers. Query: Do they expect news of a happy release? If Mrs. B. cher ished any such ex potation, she was dis appointed. The telegram was from Mr. B. "Legacy all right; left checkbook at home; duty to pay; get Fred to give open check 100. Clerk will call for it. B. B." Mrs. Boodle took the telegram to her husband's brother Fred. He obliged with the open check. Mrs. B. returned home to await the clerk. He came with another double knock. Apparently a lawyer's clerk. Sus picious, wonder if she'll kick me look about him, suggestive of long practice of the art of writ serving. Popular lielief that writ servers set more kicks than halfpence. Can't refute it. The clerk de parted with the check and for this time without the kicks. Mrs. Boodle sat down to the piano and played "Oh, Dem Golden Slippers." She was in a very jubilant state of mind. She saw large possibilities in the legacy. She sent Mary Jane to the news agents for all the fashion periodicals, read them and meditated upon the material of the first dress. Decided upon green velvet trimmed with gold braid. Bonnet to match. Sent Mary Jane for patterns and decided up on the shade. Meditated as to the most effectual way of wheedling the necessary cash out of Mr. Boodle. Meditation dis turbed by sound of latchkey in front door. Mr. Boodle had returned. Mrs. Koodle prepared to wheedle. "Oh, Benjamin, 1 was so glad the leg acy was all right!" Mr. Boodle glared at the wheedler. He did not speak. He could not. Something too heavy for the present utterance weighed down his soul. "Did you find out why Mr. McConomy left you the money?" continued the lady. Mr. Boodle uttered a big D. "No. uia'am," he yeiled. "I did not!" "I am not deaf, Mr. Boodle," said Mrs. Boodle frigidly. "Then hear this." And Mr. Boodle shouted at the top of his voice, "McCono my's coining here to dine this evening!" Mrs. Boodle turned very pale. The green dress trimmed with gold braid and the bonnet to match faded from her vision. "What!" she gasped. "Isn't he dead?" "Dead!" roared Mr. Doodle. "Do I look A likely subject to Invite a ghost to dinner? Is there any medium about me? D'ye see any spiritualist in my eye? The legacy is a disgraceful hoax, Mrs. Boo dle. McConomy will lie here directly, and we're going to make the perpetrator sit up sit up. Mrs. Boodle." "But this telegram? Surely this isn't a hoax." "What! Get Fred to give open check 100! You don't mean to say Mrs. Boo dle, what does this mean?" "Fred gave me the check, and I gave it to the clerk the man you sent." Mr. Boodle's face turned a scarlet hue. Never before had he been in such dan ger of apoplexy. He tried to speak. His vocal apparatus hung lire like a gun charged with damp powder. "Sent!" he yelled at lat. the word shooting out like the cork of a stout bot tle. "Sent! When they sent you to this sphere, they sent a stupid, brainless idiot, Mrs. Boodle! No! This telegram isn't a hoax. It's a do! A do. 1 tell you!" Mr. Boodle concluded his remarks in the street, whither he had gone on route for the nearest telegraph ollit-e. He wir ed to Fred's bankers. Alas! He was too late. The check had leen cashed tome hours, and the only consolation poor swindled Mr. Boodle ever got was that be would not be called upon to pay the six and eigiitpcnrc for the letter that worked his woe.

Aat Attempt to lacaleate Crntltwde la Metropolitan Walters. Waiters In the most exclusive of the restaurants have come to look upon the tip as so certainly their right that they have come to assume an air that is offensive In the extreme, says the New York Times. There is no ac knowledgment from them for this courtesy on the part of the diner now unless he gives them a bill, when of course the waiter is obsequious In the extreme and generally offensively so when the bill is of an exceptionally large denomination. There is now no "thank you" for a tip in silver. The waiter merely grabs it as a thing that belongs to him. Naturally there has come a revolt on the part of the diners, and several waiters in fashionable resorts have been receiving a much needed lesson within the past week or two.. Men have begun to call waiters back to them when there has been no "thank you" in acknowledgment of a tip and on one pretext or another have asked that the tip be returned as if to ex amine the change or Increase the tip. Then these men. who only demand that a waiter shall at least profess to be thankful for the gift, have quietly pocketed the coin after telling the waiter that as he had neglected to re turn thanks for the pour boire be was therefore not entitled to It. This plan has worked well, though it has made the waiters who have thus lost their tips through a lack of courte sy surly and inclined to break crockery as a means of relieving their minds, which latter is of course only biting off one's nose to spite his face. Club men who are used to respectful treat ment at their clubs are determined to wrest the "thank you" from the waiter or withhold the tip, and the plan to force the acknowledgment is spread ing rapidly as a means of curbing the discourtesy of waiters. The plan meets with the approval of the man agers of the restaurants, who hope to see it universally adopted until surly waiters have learned that the tip Is not theirs of right, but Is a matter as be tween a man well served and bis servi tor. Where la Wireless Telegraphy f Wireless telegraphy is an art which for several years has been fruitful of promising and even startling results. It has attracted the most earnest ef forts of as able a group of trained In vestigators as Is anywhere to be found.
