Presbyterians Are Pledging Lib
eral Amounts to Trinity
The following is an excerpt from
the Whitewrigbt Sun's report of the
1 Ronham Presbytery held in that
ι city last wwk :
Friday afternoon was devoted to
the educational work in Texas aj d
especially Trinity University. Pres
ident Kirkes of the university and
j Rev. J. C. Smith of Waxahaehie
both made interesting addressee,
j The material progress in Trinity
j University, which is one of the old
est in Texas, has been almost phe
nomenal since it was decided to re
move it to Waxahaehie. Taking no
note of old endowments, which are
valued at $60,000, the following mag
nificent showing is reported up-to
date: The agent of Texas Synod
raised endowment valued at $.V»,000
last year. Under the leadership it
j Rev. J. ('. Smith, the city of Waxa
haehie raised ΙΗΟ,ΟΟΟ. President
j Kirkes, who has been fn the field
! less than three months, has secured ;
: several large amounts, and the en- 1
tire membership of the church in
■ Texas is responding almost to a ι
man. Of this work the following
may be mentioned: Corsicana con
gregation has given £5,000; a broth
er bequests #0,000; Ronham Presby
tery pledges fci,000; a gift ot^fBOO
last week for additional equipment
for the labratory; and other parties
whose names are withheld from per
sonal considerations promise good
donations iri cash and twquests.
The whole work givinji us some
thing like $1β5,000 in cash and hank
able pa{>er in something less than
ι two years, and this with hardly a
fourth of the Synod canvassed,
i Cumberland Presbyterians through
out the state of Texas are thankful
to God and their liberal brothers for
the most encouraging progress made
in this educational movement. The
Educational Commission of Ron
ham Presbytery consists of the fol
lowing gentlemen: Rev. W. R.
Grafton and Judge Wolfe of Slier !
man; Rev. M. F. Cowden and Judge
Lusk of Ronham; Dr. S. (>. Woods
and W. P. Maloney, of Wolfe City;
Rev. M. ('·. Johnson and T. H.
ι Sears of Whitewright.
Λ Peculiar Case.
Justice Overall's court was en- j
gaired yesterday and far into last
Wight In the trial of a case of rather ;
■ a sensational nature. J. \V. Warren I
was the defendant in the case and j
. was charg»*d with enticing a minor,
t It appears that the parties concerned
need to live at or about Frost. Some
time ago, the defendant and the
■ parents of Bessie Hawkins, who is
" said to be now about 14 years old,
' arranged for Bessie to spend soi.èC j
: time at the home of Warren and
wife. It appears that Hessie and
the Warrens liked each other and
1 that she preferred to stay with them.
The parents wanted her with them
and proceeded to charge the defend
ant with unlawfully enticing her
away. The case was tried before
a jury and the defendant was fined
( fif> and costs, amounting to some
thing over Assistant County
Attorney Pippin conducted the pros
ecution and W. H. Brown, Esq.,
was attorney for defendant.—Ennis
