SUICIDE THEORY SCOUTED..
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
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.

Krebs, I. 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
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.
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.
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

was still falling in the northern part
of the territory up till Tuesday, ad
ding to the already large supply which
insures water enough for all summer.
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.

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
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.
