PAGE FOUR. Link and Pin. HE NEVER CAME BACK. it is a delusion that only the Hay Rub, as tbcy,are called, are the only feIlc-R that get buncoed." said a man who had recently here a paseenser on the Santa Fe tiain. "and up in Kansas the other dr.y I saw a proof of my statement, but don't get :t into your head that I am the man who was bun coed. I was a lilttle touched by the in cident, but in the heart only: the touch di rot get deep as my pockotbook. ' The passengers in the day coach of a Santa Fe train were much disturbed during tl.e rid" from Wichita to New tou by the action of a man in the car wh : seemed to be laboring under great mental anguish. The man was poorly dressed end he walked upland down iho t purine his hair, moaning and exhibiting such poignant signs of dis- i tres e that several of the passengers in terested themselves in the caso and asked hixn what troubled him. "The distressed passenger appeared jrrateful for the kindness of his fellow passenrer? Bnd related a sad story of how his wife's dead body was Sn the baggage car ahead and when they reached Newton he would have to change cars and he had no money to take the body further, and bis home was only about fifty miles from Newton t on a side- road. "As he told the story he wept co piously and the hearts of his fellow passengers were touched. In. a short time there was a lachrymose agitation from one end cf the car to the otherv. ThB uoshot of the matter was that a traveling man loaned the stranger $100 oo a brass watch that was vortn auoui mornin and promlsea to materially $2.36 and when the train reached ew- ? , ton the distressed man rushed forward . increase that person s trials and tribu toward the baggage car and disappear- lations. ed. His fellow passengers followed r The following are the new links In more leisurely and upon inquiry learn i-r. that there had not been a corpse on the line for a week. The psuedo-be-re&ved hubby was not in sight. "And he never came back." NOT AFRAID OF WORK. The following pretty little story comes from the Colorado division of tae kock isiana. division, and C. B.

She Claims that the Timepiece Be longed to Her Dead Husband and Refused to Give It Up. Another chapter in the case of Mrs. . Freeman who was arrested on Satur day last charged with bringing stolen goods into the state, came to light this uie cnau or. evidence, wmcn is being constructed by the prosecution. Sometime in the month of December last Mrs. Freeman was employed, it is claimed, in the Harvey eating house at Rincon. During the time she occupied this position a gold watch was missed from the room occupied by a Mrs. Rowe. The watch did not belong to man on aaiuraay ana reaeemea on me ZOth of February. Williams hunted aown me man ana accusea mm oi stealing tne watcn. He aeniea it and claimed that he had received it from Mrs. Freeman and returned it to her. Subsequent search located the watch at the drug store of Potter and White where it had been left by Mrs. Free- thereupon filed a complaint against Mrs. Freeman charging her with bring ing stolen property into the state. The detective. Mrs. Rowe and Myers then proceeded to the jail where they inter viewed Mrs. Freeman requesting her to give them an order on-'Potter and White for the watch. Mrs. Freeman refused, insisting that the watch had belonged to her dead husband and not withstanding the fact that it bore the number given by Myers to Williams at the time the loss was discovered. Pot ter and White, however, rather than have any trouble surrendered the watch to Myers. STARVING ZUNI INDIANS APPEAL TO UNCLE SAM FOR FOOD. IN DESTIUTE CONDITION. : PHOENIX, Ariz., Feb. 27.

The tribe is reported to be In a fearful condition, owing to the lack of food and clothing. The rations are totally inadequate and the government is the only source of substantial aid.

There are amend ments now pending to locate the school at Greenville, Amarillo and other places. There seems to be a determined ef fort by the Texas Volunteer Guard as sooiation to secure an appropriation of $25,000 for the maintenance of the guard and for the purpose of defraying the expenses to hold state encamp ments for the next two years. During the past week upward of fifty petitions have been received in the house and senate from the members of the asso ciation in different parts of the state. These petitions in every instance have been referred to the committee on fi nance. The adjutant general fully en dorses and recommends favorable ac tion by the legislature on this appro priation as it has been demonstrated on more than one occasion me goou and value of trained volunteers in case of a riot of any kind or of defending prisoners from a mob. During the present session of the legislature there has been six different bills introduced which are aimed at the discontinuance of the practice of candidates for any office at any elec tion from spending any money outside of legitimate and actual expenses in curred In their campaign. These bills have all provided heavy penalty for a violation of its provisions. These bills all came up at one time or another and several of them were killed by ju diciary committee number 2. The whole bunch now has been referred to that ' committee and the good points from each measure have been taken and the result is a committee substi tute bill which will be presented next Wednesday for action. This substitute prohibits the spending of any money for elections outside of hotel expenses, and actual traveling expenses, and the cost of printing campaign material and in every instance its limit is to be used in each case. It also allows for expens es incurred in making an official an nouncement in a newspaper. A state ment of the expenses thus incurred has to be furnished the county judge. There is a bill by Senator Turner pending in the senate which provides for an additional state advalorem tax of five cent8 on the ,100 worth of prop- erty to be used by the respective coun t,e(J ln defraying quarantine purposes. Senator Turner stated that he has ex amined tne constitutional feature of the bill and It is all right. The bill meets with favor by some of the members of the house as it is the intention of one of the members to introduce a similar measure in the house during the com ing week. During the past two years the need of such legislation has been demonstrated on more than one occa sion where smallpox has prevailed and tbe COunties have been unable to con fine the disease on account of lack of money to maintain a rigid and strict quarantine. Senator Staples of Bastrop has intro duced a bill which' he believes will solve the question of holding a const! tutional convention for the purpose of framing a new constitution. His bill provides that the question as to wheth er there shall be a constitutional con vention or not to be left to a direct vote of the people. This bill was in spired by so much controversy, which has been going on as to whether there was any need for a change in the or ganic law. Senator Staples's bill pro vides that an election shall be held on the first Saturday in June, 1902 at which the question will be determined. In the event that the proposition car- ries the governor is instructed to call the convention to meet in Austin on the first Tuesday in August 1902. At the election to determine the matter from each district there shall be elect- ed a delegate who shall possess the powers with which the legislators are clother. A compensation of $300 is provided for each delegate and mile age of three cents per mile, also an appropriation of $500,000 is made. The Houston and Texas Central con solidation bill, which passed the senate last week, will no doubt have pleasant sailing ln the house. The- measure passed in the senate without any oppo sition. This bill is different from the one passed at the last regular session of the house, inasmuch as it elimi nates the feature which placed the. rail road commission from enforcing its rates. This bill provides also for a general reorganization under the stock and bond law. Austin will receive in calculable benefit from this consolida tion as it provides for a new depot and also that division headquarters shall be maintained here. Senator Grinnan. of Brownville. will make an effort to secure consideration of his bill which is aimed at the Waters-Pierce Oil company to compel the payment of back penalties of any cor poration which do business here and owe the state any penalties for the vio lation of the laws and also for the sur vival of causes of action. Senator Savage will introduce a bill requiring railroads to provide suitably I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I II PIANOS Pianos, Pianos, Pianos, Pianos, Pianos, M95 225 375 400 450 x Pianos in any finish. style of!

The railroads are to furnish such cars when requested to do so, and upon a failure to do so. the shipper is authorized to equip such cars and to recover the value of such equipment before any court of compe tent jurisdiction in this state. This bill was inspired by the recent hearing of the railroad commission at which time the commission decided that it could' not compel the railroads to fur nish flat cars thus equipped. There is no doubt but that the double header bill will be considered in the senate during this week. The bill has been made a special xrder for Thursday morning, the 28th of Feb ruary. This measure has been post poned on several occasions for various reasons, but Senator Harris ( Bexar), has been assured that Senator Odell will be here at that time and the bill will be disposed of. Some lively times are anticipated incident to the consid eration of the measure. There is a minority report pending signed by Senator Dibrell. It is now certain that the state will have a branch asylum for the care of the epileptic insane of Texas. The bill appropriating $200,000 for the institu tion to be located at Abilene has passed both branches and has received the governor's approval and its provisions will no doubt be carried out. All the objectional features have been elimi nated and it will be soon erected. Will Be Lynched INDIANAPOLIS. Ind.. Feb. 27. An other Indwiana lynching will in all probability occur within a few hours. Today Miss Dorothy Darter, a beau tiful young woman, was brutally as saulted by an unknown ne?ro. She was able to recognize the negro suspect from a protograph, immediately declar ing that he was her assailant. The negro will be brought before Miss Darter and if she identifies him he is likely to be lynched as the people re very much wrought up .and thrats to hang the brute are heard on every hand.
