I hare been trying to get some firm here to put in a line
of your shoes, as we have a hard time getting a good shoe
la this town. I believe if you will take the matter up, you
arrange with Messrs.- & Co. to handle " Diamond
Brands.*' I have no interest in the matter only that I want
to buy a good shoe once in a while. You will remember that
I handled your shoes when in business in Quanah, and know
what they nr*." REV. WALTER GRIFFITH,
S il verton, Texas.

Could the superiority of Diamond Brand shoes bf
more convincingly shown ? You are just as anxious
for good shoes as Rev.Griffith tnd it is equally worth
your while to insist that your dealer supply them.

GRAND JURY REPORT.
To the Hon. Judge Bush, Judge
of the Ninth Judicial District :
We, the grand jury, in obedience
to the charge delivered to us by
Your Honor at the beginning of
this term, beg leave to submit
this our final report :
We have examined 123 witnesses
out of a total of of 137 summoned,
and after carefully considering the
evidence thus obtained, have found
and turned into this court forty in
dictments ; referred two cases to
the next grand jury and have ig
nored two cases altogether
We have, by committee, made an
examination of the county poor
house, find same to be well kept,
inmates satisfied and in comfortable
surroundings.
We suggest the following repairs
be made by the board of supervis
ors : repairs to hearth, chimney
and cistern top.
We have, by committee, exam
ined the county convict farm, find
ing same, with the general sur
roundings for the care and comfort
of the convicts, to he such as would
refute any just complaint.
The grand jury, as a whole, in
spected the county jail, find same
clean and in a good sanitary condi
tion ; but the building as a jail does
not appeal to us as such.
We have examined in the usual
perfunctory manner the books of
the sheriff and county auditor, all
of which appear correct and to have
been kept in a neat and proper
manner.
We regret to note on the part of j
good and influential citizens a lack
of interest in the reporting of acts
ot lawlessness, without whose inter
est and assistance the law and mor
als of the county cannot be main
tained.
We have made a thorough inves
tigation, so far as we were able
from the records, of all acts and
doings of the justices of the peace
and ex-officio justices of the peace
of the county. The result of this
examination has been anything but
satisfactory, disclosing in some in
stances gross carelessness. How
ever, it gives us pleasure to say
that some of the justices of the
peace have kept complete records,
which shows on their part a proper
appreciation of their duty and obli
gations to the people.
We wish to thank Your Honor,
the district attorney and officers of
the county for courtesies extended
during this term.
We now ask to be finally dis
charged.

Foreman.
BAR MEETING.
Petition Judge Bush to Call a
Special Term of Court.
At a meeting of the Claiborne
County Bar Association, held at the
court house Thursday morning,
Jan. i2th, 1907, the following res
olutions were unanimously adopted:
The undersigned members of the
Claiborne County Bar Association
would respectfully show unto Your
Honor,
That we heartily endorse the vig
orous and fearless administration of
law and justice, and the careful and
laborious attention to the duties of
your office, which has been given
to us and to the public at large dur
ing your administration.
1 That we recognize that the first
duty, both of the private citizen
and of the official, is to the state,
and that the suppression of crime
pnd the administration of the pub
ic law is paramount in importance
to the business of the individual.
Second in importance, however,
to the enforcement of the criminal
I tow, comes -he settlement of con
i.oversies between private citizens,
and we recognize the fact that
nere is considerable business of
a civil na.ure on the dockets of the
court, which needs attention.
Knowing that Your Honor, both
as a court a id a citizen, is ever
ready to couse' ve »be interests of
the public, and deeming that the
interests of the public demand it,
we respectfully ask the court to
cenvene a special term for the trans
action of civil business.
