1 ?4 RESOURCES ARE G00I Wisconsin Creamery Proposi tion lor Canadian Breaks Land Promises Good "Wo arc gradually getting In ohape to put tho lands on the market,'' Bald R. S. Allen, of Houston at the Amarlllo hotel this -morning, Hn speaking of the lands north of town wnicn 013 company recently pur chased. "1 bought the lands In the flrat plaie simply becaube I thought they were worth It for grans lands. Stnre thru I have found ctror pos sibilities which are woll worth devel oping. "These Wisconsin parties that hnvo been talking about the dalry'prop csltion want to put in some dairy colonies down in here somewhere They figure thai oy putting in cheese factories and creameries at conveni ent points along tho Canadian river communities of dairy farmers could make satisfactory arrangements for marketing their products. Of course there is a good market in this county for all products of that kind. If tho farmers were enabled to have a tsure market every day for milk from a small dairy herd, they could make themselves Belt sustaining from the ' stort aid at the same time be rlevel- oping the reBourcs of the farms. .There Is a good deal of productive valley land In tho Canadian country '. and I hear that fruit does well in the toreaks country wherevor it Is being tried. "Of course transportation facilities will be something of a handicap to . that section for the present. There are several projects on foot, however. i and I think it is only a question of a short time till that country gets railroad accommodations. AH -his talk about unfriendly legislation has been bad' for railroad building bfft there are good opportunities for the building of feeder roads by private capital. At Wichita Falls. Mr. Kemp and myself promoted a road through to Keel, a town over In tbe territory last year and now a railroad company has bought the line and is building it through to Frederick. It was through a good country and was a paying proportion. It seems to mo that there Is good opportunity for a road through the Canadian country into here from Colorado. When a road does come In across that coun try, I think it likely that th build ers will try to strike the river Lear the point now crossed by the county bridge north of Amarlllo because the rock bed there allows a stable foun dation for a bridge." He THOUGHT SO Ulan From the South riains FeU as If He Had Lots of Money. , Charles Durham who was arrested at Plainvlew this week by Officer Bolton for. passing a worthless check made bond at Plainvlew and will not answer here upon the charge till tho the term of the district court. Durham was in Amarlllo some time ago and at some time during his visit it seems he needed more money than was left in his pocket By that time he probably felt that any check he drew or passed was good for any amount so lie began by passing a check onx J. H. Patton to cover contingent expenses. After Durham left it developed that the check he gave Patton was bogus so . far as any money value was concern ed so the services of tho officers were called in. When arrested at his home Durham was easily able to make bond and may be able yet to square the irregularity. PLANNING BUlLDINtt New Telephone Company Will Have v. Handsome Quarters. . II. -H.

Women as Well as men Aro H miserable by Kidney and Bladder' Trouble. Kidney trouble preys upon the mind, discourages aiidlescnsmbition; beauty, vigor ana cticertul new soon disapar when the kidneys ar? out of order or dis eased. Kidney trouble has become so prevalent that it is not uncom mon for a child to be born afflicted with weak kidneys. If the chiMurinatestoooftcn, if the urine scalds the flesh, or if, when the child reaches an age when it should be able to control the passage, it is yet afflicted with bed-wetting, depend upon it, the cause of the diffi culty is kidney trouble, and the first step should be towards the treatment of these importantorgans. This unpleasant trouble is due to a diseased condition of the kidneys and bladder and not to a habit as most people suppose. Women as well as men are made miser able with kidney and bladder trouble, and both need the same treat remedy. The mild and the immediate effect of Swamp-Root is soon realized. It is sold by druggists, in ftfty- ceni ana onc-noiiur mvn iri tinttlr.

As principals In a brawl that came near amount Ing to a riot, Charles Saunders of the Sells-Floto Show company, and Lee Blvlns, of Amarlllo, must answer comp'.ainis filed in justice court ilast night 'barging them with simple assault. The fracas fcrcw out of the visit of a party of Amarlllo men, Includ ing several prominent citizens, to the show grounds last night when the evening performance was nearly over. Instead of coming to the main entrance and purchasing admission In tbe usual way, tbe visitors, without invitation, pushed into the tent for performing horses. This tent also includes the dressing rooms of the actors and la joined to the big tent by the entrance for the performers. Here the visitors were told to go the main entrance to get into the show. This admonition failed of ef fect and one of the men pushed on. At the time the boss hostler was in charge of tho entrance In directing the equstrlan acts. When tbe man failed to go back the hostler, falling to appreciate either the prominence or good intentions of the intruder smashed him with a cane. In a flash there was an interchange of blows that left the Amarlllo man with a punctured countenance. Then the police organization of the show grounds quickly asserted Itself, one of the main combatants In the per son of tho boss hostler was whisked out of sight and more cool-headed leaders of tho show company threw themselves InTo the mob to quiet the disturbance. The showmen called for officers and sought to turn the entire difficulty over to the proper authorities but the aggrieved man and some of ' his hot-headed friends persisted in looking for the man who had hit him and for other trouble. Finally, however, the Ama rlllo principals were taken up tewn and the critical part of the difficulty ended. After the combatants had been separated the trouble threatened to break out In another way by the at tempt on the part of some of tho Amarlllo men to have the entire show held up a day to answer in court for the difficulty. The show managers had acted promptly in their pr.rt of the matter, had produced the hostler who immediately demanded and made cash bond and Instructed the officer to plead guilty for him on the charge of simplo assault. On this charge no further action could be taken against the show company and some of the interested parties sought to get a more serious hold on the show people by coming down town .and swearing out a complaint charging assault with intent to kill. By the time the warrant on this charge had been obtained, however, the show trains had pulled out and were well on their way to Wichita Falls.' A. S. Tugwell returned yesterday from Seymour where he went to at tend the marriage of his sister, Miss Anna Tugwell to Professor John A. Hardin, of Fort Worth, "DELIGHTFUL PEOPLE" El Paso Reciprocates Good Opinion Amarlllo Has of Her of Pass Members of the party which en Joyed tho hospitality of 21 Paso at tbe meeting of the Five Million club continue to arouse vain regrets in the minds of their stay-at-home friends by stories of the delights of the trip and of tbo entertain ment. The affection developed by the Amarlllo for the Texans down on the Rio Grande was fully recip rocated and El Paso papers have many bouquets to throw at the vis itors from the plains city. Some ex tracts from El Paso papers have been published before und others are given hero: Mado Lasting Impression. The Amarlllo delegates to the El Paso convention of the C, 000, 000 club left last night for their 800 mile trlphome in a special over the Texas and Pacific, and when their train pulled out of tbo Union station a few minutes before midnight It car ried away from this city a delegation that has made an impression oi El Paso, one that will not soon be for gotten. Mayor Will A. Miller, Jr., head of the delegation, is one of the men it is alvayn a pleasure to meet, a man who leaves an Impression of whole some sincerity. He is a young man, this mayor, chock full of energy, and wise In the ways of tbe world, ex perienced for his years and devoting the best of his abilities to the wel fare of his town. One need only to listen to him for a very few minutes before one is convinced that Amarlllo is the town, now and for the future. Two Points of the Star. The five points of the star, repre senting the Lone Star state, he said, might stand for several other towns, but of those he was not certain. However, It was fixed In his mind that Amarlllo, 800 miles from El Paso, but still in West Texas, cer tainly was one of tbe other points. Of 1 Paso, Mayor Miller bad only the best to say. Eleven years a-o, he said, he had been in this city, and when he raturned this time he failed to recognise the place. "Your build ings, your paved streets, your prog ress generally, and above all your people," he declared enthusiastically, "have impressed me wonderfully. And these Impressions have affected my people they have given them an idea of what tbey are to do in their own town." Amarlllo IYojreii. Amarlllo, the hustling town of the Panhandle, has made wonderful strides, strides of a seven leagued giant, in the past few years. As an illustration in the last sixteen months an average of one mile of concrete pavement has been laid in the town, and for the next three months, before their winter setB In, this average will be helped. All of the Amarlllo delegation, de lightful people, were enthusiastic about their stay In El Paso. SherlTf Connell, big, hearty, bluff and good natured man that he Is, expressed his thoughts on tbe subject simply and forcibly. All of them were car ried away with the elt:; aad their reception here. Connell Wanted a Horse In the afternoon yesterday the en-1 tire delegation visited Juarei and. went to the bull fight. They were telling last night a Joke on Sheriff Connell.- it was told that when one( of the wild bulls of the ring had at tempted to Jump the barrier between the ring and grandstand the sheriff from Hereford had got out of his seat and made a break for a tafe place. Sheriff Connell explained his move by saying that he was without his horse. Enthused about El Paso and over flowing with good things to say about their entertainment, the jolly visitors left the most delightful memory of their visit to remain with the people of El Paso. The Graceful Stand of Amarlllo. Practically Is the Amarlllo dele gation to be given credit for the po sition their people took In the selec tion of the next convention place for the Five Million club. When they had the vote all their way, with fif teen out of sixteen of the board of governors pledged to their town, and with the sixteenth member practical ly in favor of this jelectioa they withdrew from the i co , They subordinated their desire to have the visitors from Texas see their growing town to the sincere wish for the welfare of the club, and because tbey thought a larger num ber of delegates could be secured t Dallas, they voted solidly for that city.

Last night after the melee at the show grounds there was much talk In the neighoorhood of tbe Bowery and tbe Buchanan street crossing of the Denver track where tbe show trains were being loaded. Officers Huskey and Bolton and other offi cers mingled with the restless spirits who were freely talking various kinds of vengeance, and sought to keep the disorder from breaking out. A tip from a bystander who no ticed a suspicious action on tbe part of one of the men in tbe crowd, lead Officer Bolton to step up to the man Indicated. Tbe man saw him com ing and started away but th officer caught up with him and btoppetl him. Search disclosed a loaded tlx shoot er In the man's belt so tbe officer immediately took him in charge and lodged him in jail. . The "pistol toter" who most pay for his war-like preparations In this case, is W. A. Edwards, a bartender In the Mitchell saloon on the Bow ery. The lowest fine that Edwards can pay will be $100 and costs and he must also forfeit the weapon which the officer caught Mu with last night. A FIXE RECOMMENDATION. Old Home Paper Writes of Mr. Root. L. Ball, of Amarilo. (From Tuesday's Dally.) When Mr. Root. L. Ball associated himself with the P. L. Person Land company, the Daily Panhandle made a note of the fact. By soma means one of the papers with this notice In it, got to the editor of Mr. Ball's old home, paper, the Morning Re view, of Cleburne, Texas, and tho editor copied the Panhandle's re marks and added the folowlng, which tho Panhandle copies in order that his friends here may know what the people where he was raised think of Mr. Ball. Here are the Review's remarks: "The foregoing complimentary no tice refers to Robert L. Ball, for merly of Cleburne, who moved to tie plains country five cr six years ago and has been proving the adwgo, 'blood will tell' to be true In every particular. " 'Bob Ball, as he was familiarly known In this city by all hla num erous friends and associates, 1s a son of Dr. J. L. Ball, and brother of Dr. Ball and Scales Ball, of the firm of Ball & Williamson. There Is no finer nor better fellow living then this favonto son of Cleburno. He Is a gentleman and a splendid business man, honest, wide-awake, and reliable In every phase of life. He not only deserves success, but has by hard work and honest deal ings managed to gather together a fair amount of this worlds good-, which fact Is pleasant news to his numerous friends In the city of Cle burne, where he was born, Talsed and educated. Good luck to you, Bob, old man."
