Tuesday evening at 10 o'clock and his remains were taken to Kauf-n-an today for burial. There Is some thing peculiarly pathetic about the de mise of this man. On February 23 last he was received as a juror In the Grin nan case on trial at Kaufman. The trial lasted for ten days. The great strain was too much for Mr. Smith. When the jury was about ready to re turn its verdict he was seized with a violent mania, which prevented the ver diet from being returned. The Jury was held together for several days In the hopes that he would recover suffi ciently to take part In the delibera tions." but instead of getting better, he gradually grew worse, and the jury was finally discharged by Judge Dlllard without having returned Its verdict- A tew days afterward Smith was declared tc be insane and was taken to Terrel lor treatment.. He gradually grew worse until his death. He leaves a wife and eight children. ACCIDENTALLY KILLED. Some time during the afternoon Mod day Kelly Broaderson. a young man aged 21 years, was accidentally killed while out hunting three miles south of Weatnerford. He was staying at the home of Fred Hammons, and about 2 p. m. took his gun and dog and went for a hunt. Late in the evening the dog returned to the house and as young Broaderson did not come in time for supper, a search was made for him and his helpless body was found during the night near the fence, with his gun near by. His clothes were powder burned and there was a large hole through his body near his heart. The supposition is that he was trying to get over the fence when his gun was accidentally discharged. His home was in Kentucky and he had only been in Texas a few weeks. TWO KILLED IN FIGHT. A difficulty occurred at Liberty. Tues day between Wharton Branch. W. B. Duncan and W. K. Wall .in which Dun ran and Wall were instantly killed, be ing shot with a pistol. The trouble arose in a saloon. Branch is a well known lawyer, having practiced ai Galveston and Dallas, but has been re Siding at Liberty for several years. Mr. Duncan had been for a number of years constable and deputy sheriff at Liberty. He was about 34 years of age and leaves a wife and several children be sides a number of other relatives in that country. Mr. Wall was the father-in-law of Mr. Duncan. He was 50 years old and leaves a wife. A charge of murder was filed asralnst Mr. Branch and he was taken to Houston. REMARKABLE PEACH TREE. J. P. Steele, a prominent farmer liv ing ten miles northwest of Denlson, says the peaches have not been injured thus far. and that it would take a pret ty hard freeze to kill them at this late date. Wheat and oats are looking fine and no damage noted by the aphll. He said: "Speaking of peaches. I have a peach tree in my orchard which was planted in 1866. and it is still bearing fruit- At the ground It measures seven feet in circumference, four feet above the ground it measure four feet In cir cumference. The tree is of an English species, brought to this country a nam her of years ago." HE WAS NOT TRUE. Mattie Graham, the 19-year-old daughter or Police Officer Graham, shot and probably fatally wounded Jack Walsh, a member of the local fire de partment at Houston Wednesday. The shooting was the result of a former love affair. The young lady was wait ing for Walsh. When he came from his hom at 7 o'clock in the morning he passed her without speaking. Just as he passed her she pressed a 38-call-her pistol to his breast and fired. The ballet passed through his body. The girl has been arrested. DR. TANNER'S SUCCESSOR. Dr. R. N. Barrett has been appoint rd professor of theology at Baylor uni versity to fill the vacancy made by the e'eath of Dr. John S. Tanner. Dr. Bar rett is from Ellis county. He is a graduate of the Theological Seminary of Louisville. Ky.. and other famous institutions. His appointment is sub ject to the future action of the regents "of the university. I r WOMEN NOT EASY MARKS. A smooth individual, claiming to be a representative of the Butterick peo ple, worked a new swindle on some of the ladies of Williams this week. He appointed three or four sole agents in the town to handle patterns and col lected only the small sum of $2.50 from nch for that privilege. He was giving another lady a "con" talk and paving J the way towards naving anomer soie agent and an extra two-fifty, when it just happened that one of the ladies ap pointed a "sole agent" only a little while before, was visiting the to be "sole arrt." and though in an adjoin ing room, overheard the conversation.

An Arizona paper says that steer tving contests are becoming so num erous in the territory that when a steer ses a man coming with a rope he lays down on his back and sticks his feet up in the air. ready to be tied. They have learned from experience that there is no use to run and it is only wear and tear on their systems to do so. The rofncifll of the bovines to enter into the spirit of the spirit of the sport has . , taken away the interest In the contests . . and they will probably be abandoned as tame and uninteresting. However a . , few uninitiated steers will be hunted up in order to have a tying contest at ; Phoenix ns a feature of the entertain- , . . n.nt of President McKlnley when he , visits that city. A CURIOUS ACCIDENT. Hazen Rich, a motorman. was the IT Tirtim of a nalnful accident near tne 4. capitol grounds on Sunday night. The new trolley wire at the turn of the I street was in need of adjustment at a A point directly above the trolley. He t tied the trolley down and by means of I ladded mounted to the wire, ine rope gave way and the suddenly re- j T leased trolley struck the motorman in X the mouth knocking out a couple of t teeth and Inflicting other minor in-1 1 juries. Phoenix Republican. A HUMAN LAMP. An Arizona legislator is tickling his constituents by telling that a little girl at Tempe drank a pint of coal oil. The I doctors thought she would die. until one of them hit on a happy expedient. They slipped a yard or canaiewicK down into theo!l. lit the upper end. and during the evening she lighted the room nicely and then went to bed all right. MIGHT HAVE BEEN WORSE. A Tucson paper refers editorially to a man who had "to rise at 5 a. m. In the morning." The Phoenix Gazette says that is not so bad as it might nave been. If the poor man had been called upon to get up at 5 a. m. in the even ing he would have been Justified in making a kick. 1 IP IT. S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE. NEW MEXICO. CATTLE STATISTICS. Secretary J. A. La Rue's report of the cattle sanitary board of New Mex ico for 1900 shows that during the year 130.126 head of mostly steer cattle were sold and removed from the territory, and 4865 stock cattle were brought in, "7634 hides" were inspected, not more than half the number accounted for a few years ago. The number of strays ' taken possession of by inspectors of the board and sold for the account of their owners is becoming less every year, the total in 1900 being only fifty-seven, thirty of which have been already paid for. The brands on the others not be ing rlearly identified will appear in the stray list in course of publication. The special levy for 1901 is 1 mills on the assessed value of cattle one mill less than the levy asked for 1900. IMPORTANT ORE STRIKE.
