UNKNOWN HUNTER DEVOURED Bare Bones of Man Found Caught in Bear Trap in Mountains of New Mexico A dispatch from Santa F, New Mexico to the aaily press under date of November fith says: "The story of how an unidenti fied trapper was caught in his own trap, in the wilds of Socorro county, and became the prey of vwu'ivji wild kjim i was t, muls for which the trap is brought here by Charley McCarthy, a ranchman of tha county, who was sum monedbefore the United States grandjjury which made an in vestigation of the man's death. "The story indicates that no evidence of foul play was dis covered and that the man actual ly mett death, with his hands fastened in a hinre steel trap from which there was no possible extricwion without the aid of anotheV human being. "The trapper had driven in his wagon to which was hitched a team of little mules, many miles into the heart of what is said to be the wildest region of New Mexick It is evident that he was after bear, for his steel trap was OBe of the largest ever seen in thai part of the state. His body was tound about a week after he died, with both hands caught between the steel rims at the wrists. "It is believed that the trapper had finished setting the trap and baiting it and was in the act of leaving it when, by a misstep, he stumbled into the mechan icism. In falling his hands were caught. There was no means of extrication. He was fifty miles from civilization and in a region seldom entered by men. "Animals came, attracted by the bait in the trap. They attacked him and there were I little more than fragments of it jwhen his body was found." ! It was reported in Lubbock j that the trapper above mentioned j i was B. F. Dougherty, formerly ' , of this city.

He said his son, Freddie, was with him and that tl.. y were traveling in the same outfit that he left Lub bock in, namely a small spring wagon with two burros attached, one brown and one white. He stated that he was out of money and about out of chuck, and asked Mr. Phipps to send $10 to j Tulia, that he would be there on I the 18th. and would get it Mr. I Phipps sent this amount, mailed it on the 18th and in an envelope with his return printed on it. The letter has never been re turned. Mr. Daugherty went lrom here to a point in Colorado, where he worked for a time in a blacKsmithing establishment, but was making his way back to the north plains country when last heard from.

J HEW COUNTY AND CITY FATHERS CONTRACT FOR NEW AND BETTER STREET LIGHTS WILL EXTEND FROM DEPOT TO OVERTON AOOITION Ornamental Metal Posts to Take the Place of Present Tall Poles on the Square Lighting Capacity Will Be Largely Increased. ' The Avalanche has been able to dig up a nice bunch of good news for our readers this week and in the batch we learn with a considerable degree of pleasure and satisfaction that we shall soon have a greatly improved street lighting system. At a recent meeting of the commissioner's court as well as the city council a contract was entered into by and between the Lubbock Light and Ice Company and the city of Lubbock and Lubbock county whereby the light plant agrees to put up an up-to-date system of street lights. There will be erected as we understand a line of street lights placed on ornamental iron posts beginning at the depot extending around the square, into the court house yard and west on Broad way to a point near Judge Spencers' residence two blocks over in the Overton Addition. The new arrangement will furnish a much better light and le of great convenience to a much areater number of people than the old way, and we are A RED LETTER EVENT Quincy Lee Morrow to Lecture on the Prohibition Question Sunday November 23rd The people of Lubbock will have an opportunity of listening to one of the finest lectures that has ever been delivered on the subject of liauor prohibition at the Lyric Theatre on the west side of the square Sunday morn ing and evening November 2Hrd. It is said of him: Though just in the prime of life, Mr. Morrow is a veteran upon the platform. For twenty-live years he has traveled constantly in every State of the Union, preaching the Gospel of Civic Righteousness and the Prohibition of the Liquor Traffic. He speaks with the certainty and enthusiasm of a man with a message, yet always in such sweet spirit as to ofTend no one. Wherever he is heard, the door is always open for his return. His wide experience as a cam paigner and as the Executive Leader of the Prohibition forces of South Dakota for nine years, make him invaluable as an in structor in the principles of the Prohibition Reform and methods of work. His strongest recommendation is the fact that he it recalled again and again to the States in which he has labored for the great cause to which he has consecrated his life. J. M. Byrner, of LaGrange, was here Saturday looking a iter business affairs among our people. Mrs. M. G. Abernathy was in from the ran:h this week look ing after business matters. D. M. UeVitt is here from Fort Worth this week, looking after business matters. SYSTEM sure that it will be properly appreciated by every citizen of the town. Lubbock keeps forg ing to the front, she never takes a step back word and for this reason our people have the greatest confidence in her and are at all times ready to back up their faith in the town by putting up money for improvements of various kinds. An all-day service is the next important move on the part of the owners of the light plant and we understand arrangements are already being planned to inaugu rate such, early next spring. This depends largely upon the patronage they would receive and for the sake of the great ad vantages it would be to the people, each and every one who has gasoline power should put in the electric power so as to enable the light people to operate at a profit. On with the improve ments. There is always some thing doing in Lubbock. Its a splendid place to live. Come to Lubbock!
