The wife of Steve Adamec. a Bohe mian farmer living near Ellinger, was found dead in their house by some neighbors. Adamec told a neighbor who lives about a stone's throw from his house, that his wife had committed suicide and he desired the neighbor and his wife to come over to his house. Things looked so suspicious to the neighbor that he notified the officers, who upon investigation decided that the circumstances surrounding the death were of such a character as to warrant the locking up of Adamec pending further Investigation. Mrs. Adamec's body had a bullet wound through the breast In the region of the heart and her clothes were torn to tat ters. COTTON SEED PLANT. A big plant has been erected in Aus tin for the purpose of deltnting and hulling cotton seed. The plant cost in the neighborhood of $30,000. It will hull cotton seed by machinery. The lint and hulls will be taken from the seed and the kernels will be exported to France, where the oil will be extract ed and the meal sold for a much higher price than is to be obtained for it in this country. The separation of the hull's from the kernels not only makes a big saving in freight, but also means a big reduction in duty. The new in vention may revolutionize the cotton seed oil manufacturing industry. INDEPENDENT CITIZENS WIN. In the election of city officials in San Antonio Monday the Hicks, or Indepen dent Citizens' ticket won. the opposi tion being left so far behind that they gave up the fight long before the polls were closed. There was one exception to the election or the entire Indepen dent Citizens ticket, and that was in th Fifth ward, where the candidate on that ticket was defeated. There was a light vote, owing to the bad weather and a shortage of conveyances to the polls, and everything went off quietly. The result is an unmistakable indorse ment of the administration of Mayor Marshall Hicks. A. AND M. COMPLIMENTED. About twenty-five members of the legislature paid a visit to College Sta tion and took a peep at the Agricultu ral and Mechanical college. When ther returned to Austin they had all sorts of good things to say about the college and several of them admitted that there were some thingsd one there that they didn't know anything about. Some of them say that it is one of the greatest institutions of the state. Ev eryone enjoyed his visit and all say they had a good time. KILLED BY A TRAIN.

T., was killed at Bethel switch a short distance south of Fort Worth, about 10:30 a, m., Sunday, being run over, it is stated, by the north bound Missouri, Kansas & Texas train, which comes up at that time. The body was taken into Fort Worth in the baggage car and placed in charge of an under taker. Justice Mullins held an inquest, in which the trainmen were held blameless. FAT STOCK SHOW. The fat stock show opened in Fort Worth on Tuesday with a large entry. It was estimated that between five and six thousand head of cattle were on exhibition Tuesday, many of . which are registered cattle from the nortn. There are also many head of fine reg istered Texas cattle on exhibition. The entries closed at 2 p. m. Tuesday. NEW MEXICO. AN ALBUQUERQUE ORGANIZATION In the rooms of the Commercial club at Albuquerque Monday night thre was organized the Albuquerque Jobbers' and aMniifacturers association. It was- an interesting and enthusiastic gathering of business men and every one present had something god to say for the order. The object of the orga nization is to further the interests of Albuquerque by encouraging manufac turers to visit that locality and by pointing out to them the numerous re sources by which they can invest prof itably in that section. A set of by laws and resolution were read and adopted. Following is the list of of ficers elected at the organization: John A. Lee, president; C. F. Meyers, vice president; C. F. Waugb, treasurer; P. F. McCanna. secretary. CARRIAGE FACTORY FOR VEGAS. Las Vegas is soon to have a carriage factory. N. Kastler, formerly of Chi cago, where he owned a carriage fac tory, has come to Las Vegas, leased a lot and contracted for the erection of a building upon it, in which to put his carriage making plant. The building on the start will be 40 by 50 feet and will be enlarged as his business grows. He brought a great deal of machinery with him from Chicago: enough that the freight alone was over $500. He expects to build up a business that will in a short time justify the en largement of his quarters and the ad dition of other machinery. ARIZONA. CATTLEMEN ARE JUBILANT. It is hardly likely that the outlook for cattlemen in Arizona was ever brighter than it is now. It is probable that there are now fewer cattle in Ari zona than for years, but according to stockmen, in six months there will be more cattle on Arizona ranches than ever before. Reports state that snow MAKE A NOTE. ABSOLUTELY CASH. $1.00. $1.00. $1.00 $ 1.00. 25c. $1.00. $ l.CO.

It is said that the influx of cattle which had been shipped to California three months ago are on their way back. Every owner of a herd is en deavoring to increase his stock as there is now no possibility of a damaging drouth. Arizona's good fortune comes just at the proper time, when the cat tle industry is rather on the decline in the larger part of the country. The decline is thought' to be due to three causes: The withdrawal of public land from grazing privileges; the con stant settlement of arable land; and the prevalence of partial drought over a large portion of the cattle raising country. Meanwhile the price of meat has been steadily advancing and has reached a point where cattle can be raised with considerable profit. WILL BE DISCHARGED. A dispatch from Phoenix says that within a few weeks the prevaricator of world-wide fame. Joseph Mulhatton, will be discharged from the insane asy lum of Arizona. . where he has been under restraint and care for several months. According to the superinten dent, ther is nothing very much wrong with Joseph. He has a supersensitive nervous system, and that is about all. He has had a quiet and peaceful exis tence at the asylum, with proper med ical attention, and has lost about all the delusions that brought him to the asylum. Joe has been "playing in hard luck" for several years. He had drifted over to Florida, where he help ed edit the village weekly, and where he ran what he called a "mining ex change." Through a casual prospector he became interested in a good claim in Mineral Creek district, which he had the fortune to sell. Prosperity was un usual, and proved almost too much for him.- He went on a a spree that the old-timers will remember with admira tion for many yeers. and Insisted that the town celebrate In his wake. Then he went to the asylum. HAS OBSERVED.

Fully 75.000 head of cat tle go out of Arizona annnallv -Simon are driven from the onrthem counties into Maricopa county for the clip and returned north after the clipping sea son, which is now on at points near Phoenix. Mr. Hunt will go into the Gila valley for wool. Tucson Star. BILLY STILES AT EASE.

Sheriff Lewis blundered in serving the war rant of arrest upon Stiles, having found an old bench warrant which Judge Davis had ordered issued during the trial of Downing at Tombstone. MEXICO. A SHOCKING AFFAIR. In a restaurant, near the center of the City of Mexico, two waiters named Macario Rios and Manuel Ro'oles. were rivals for the affections of a girl named Antouio Rico, also employed in the es tablishment. Although Robles was the favored one. Rios persisted in his attentions, despite the fact that Anto nio treated him with marked disdain. Tuesday night, when she went into the "patio"' to wash the dishes, the enam ored Rios followed and attempted to further his suit. Antonio pretended not to hear him. which so angered him. that he raised his voice, bringing the other lover. Robles. to the scene. The girl took the latter's arm to draw him away, whereupon the infuriated Rios leaped upon them, and seizing the girl's arm, began dragging her in the direc tion of a newly installed electric wire, which was still uncovered. The wait ers had all been cautioned not t': touch this, hence his inspiration for revenge. The girl struggled and her lover tried to drag her in the opposite direction, but Rios being the stronger of the two, finally gont near enough to grasp the wire himself, satisfied to be killed, if the others died with him. As a result he received a severe shock, which was felt by the other two. though not so severely. Rios. in addition to a badly burned hand, suffered from a general internal disturbance, and for a time it was thought that he would pay for his jealousy with his life. ALMOST BURIED ALIVE. Isaura Molina, of the City of Mexico, has suffered with hysteria, and on Wednesday last had a severe attack, which left her In a comatose state, in which she remained several days. For a lime she gave signs of life, but on the third day. the family concluded that she was dead, and called a phy sician at this opportune time, to ex amine her. He stated that death was only apparent, the girl being in a cata leptic condition. The family, suspi cious that the doctor was deceiving them for motives of gain, called in an other, who. without making an exam ination, obligingly pronounced the girl quite dead. Preparations were at once begun for the funeral. Permission was obtained for the burial and a cof fin secuerd: but just as they were put ting the girl in it, she came to life. The room was crowded with neighbors and friends, and the result was a gen eral stampede, when the first move men of the limbs was visible. A few moments later the girl opened her eyes and a sigh was audible. She was car ried to an adjoining room by the over Joyed relatives and restoratives were applied. HALF DOG. HALF LION. One of the greatest freaks which it has ever sprung on an unsuspecting people is an animal which lives at the livery stables of Mr. Cisneros on Mo rel os avenue. The animal is now about two years old and he has a mix ture of blood in him which differs in organization about as far as the bear from the monkey. The animal is ap parently a cross between a dog and a lion. He is a large, tawny, dun ani mal weighing about fifty pounds and his features resemble his canine fath er, but In character is -inclined to take up the peculiarities of his feline moth er. His running is done on the run ning order much the same as the cat family, and while he enjoys a caress he seriously objects to a correction for being unmannerly. This prodigy Is one of the strangest freaks of nature on record, and a number of phy sicians who are supposed to be ac quainted with the propagation of life refuse to accept the statement regard- ingfl the animal's ancestry.
