Kvon then, hlnco h had not een Karl Hock ray for mny years, Mr. Mock ray w as not. struck by hltf memory of the boy but by the striking rcbeinblance to the boy'e father, IiIm own brothor, Blind Dockray. Jle Immediately set about making inquiries. He sent pictures and descriptions to tin formor home of Silas Dockray in Blanco county. Hero Mr. and Mrs, William Green, Karl Dock ray's grand parents, Immediately recognized the description and sent th comniunl tions a soon as possible to the fjitli er.

Ho grew up on-the farm used to hard work, tern porate habits, and clean life. He was born In Blanco county near Johnson City .nd would have been eighteen years old Oct 13. In 1900 his mother died and alnco that time to had boott living with his grand parents Mr. and Mrs. William Green Ho attendod school In Johnson City and had a good reputation through out the ontlro community. Wax Saving Hla Money Last May tho boy took his work away from home and went to El Paso with a construction company, He becamo immediately a trusted em ploye In high favor with nil the men and was given the best positions open to a boy of his. age. Ho was saving his money and expected to help his father dovoiop the new farm over la Oklahoma. In a letter dated at Hereford Oct. 3, he told his fath cruhat he -was coming with his mon ey, about $120. Ho said that he had bought, some new clothes and 'that ho would send tho old clothes home by express. Tho father received the "here his murderers had left him on the Hock Island Y.

Sheriff Hughes when seen this morning stated that ho had heard nothing from the gov ernor yet, although ho was requested to answer by wire. Mr. Hughes again notified the gov ernor today that the boy had beon Iduntlllcd, this time by wire, and ap pralaed him f the fact that the re ward 'here had been Increased to $1,250 and appealed to him a sec ond time to offer an additional re ward for tho state. Mr. Hughea also wired ex-Lieutenant Governor Brown ing, w ho Is in Austin, to cull on gov ernor I.nnhum nnd urged hltn to of fer the reward. It Is expected that these last appeals will have tho do sired effect, and n messago notifying him of tho fact is hourly expected by tho therirf. Governor Will Take l' Case Sheriff Hughes has received the following letter from Governor Lan- ham and has communicated further with him today. ThcrQ la 'little doubt but that tho governor will materially increase, the fund now subscribed: "I nm Instructed by tho gover nor to acknowledgo receipt of your letter of the 12th Inst., asking that ho supplement tho reward offered by tho citizens of Potter county for tho arrest and conviction of tho perpe trators of a murder recently com mitted.

Somo of his customers, when they henrd about it, wroto Kelly that they wanted their iron made either in the regular way, niul not by any new-fangled method or not at all. When tho first blast was so Btrong that It melted tho Iron, tho spectators roured with laughter at what they called "Kelly's fireworks," and they laughed for ten yenrs at his "folly." When Bessmor introduced his pro cess to tho British iron makers, they too roared with laughter nt the "cra zy Frenchman," and would not allow tho "silly idea" to bo mentioned In their records. The steel rail proposition excited only dorlsslon. "Bosh! Stuff! Hum bug! Nonsonse!" said tho railroad directors when It was proposed to them.

LOW VACATION RATES Autos nnd Tobacco Chewing Ono of tho largest retail tobacco dealers in tho United Slates says, that tho consumption of chewing tobacco has Increased almost 50 per cent in fivo years.

Offer! ngi of FIovvois Tho flower gardens of Anmrido had given their choicest treasure as tributes to the tlend boy. Over the black and,tllver casket nnd on the pulpit step and organ were strewn wreaths, sprays and bunches of fresh cut flowers. Befn.ro tho sermon a quartet sang "Abide With Mo" and "Nearer My Cod to Then." Then Rev. L. C, KirUcs, nfter a Bible read lug, delivered ono of the clearest, bravest nnd most forceful sermons that Amarlllo people have ever heard. It was a fit and opportuno talk to the living. He said: "Some years ago I tried to dis continue preaching funeral pernio. and hold, instead, funeral services, did this bocauso there k"pius to be a common idea that the, minister must on such occasion sum up nnd after a manner Judge the life of tin deceased. Now it H not left for man to Judge the dead. That Is for (I'M. Nevertheles, such a tlmo as this is one In which tho mind Is most Imi'il sitive. "This Is no less an object of In quisitive Interest than nn opportu nity for man 'to work out great good. Tho question occurs, how can we reconcile this net with God's mercy? Here Is a boy just blooming fulo manhood cruelly stricken down, nnd It may bo that some man lives to eighty or ninety years and spends his life in pIii till the last, when, by some final compunction he is brought to a "confession" and ap parently dies at peace with Cod and tho world. How are wo to reconcile this? Man's Act. Not Cod's. "We are not to reconcile all this. Much is left on earth that wo are not ot know. Wo can not surely tell whether a life has been a good one or not. The present life Is but one volume and Incomplete. The other life Is tho second volume and the sequel. Tho sequel tolls what we did not know In tho first "volume nnd shows whether It was a good story or not. "I was oneo called to a home where a catastrophe somewhat sim ilar to thl3 had occurred. There were threo preachers present and one to whom the mother In her an guish turned saying, 'Why did Cod let Ihis happen?' answered 'A great social law has been broken and you must suffer.' 'Another said, 'Cod is making you a better woman by this net. You lovo certain people too much and Cod Is turning you bad? to Him.' J was tho third and without. I wice considering; my words 1 an swered,' 'I bellovo Cod did His best to prevent this. But Ho was working In a moral world where thoro were men and women. I think God did His best..' For if Gods law wero carried out such an act as this w ould ho Impossible. "Who Did Kiu?" "Then 'who did sin?' I ask it dif ferently. Did this boy sin, or did tho assassin that with cruel hand struck him down, or can it be that tlus community Is in a sort of copartnership with certain types of criminals? "Two weeks agrt In preaching a sermon, suggested ot a great cxtcut, you must, let I hem alone. Do you j suppoo a physician lets a patient alone because bo suffers from an In-1 curable disea-e?
