THE SCAFFOLDING GAVE WAY
A Carpenter Sustains Painful In·
juries in the Fall.
Yesterday afternoon about five
o'clock an accident occurred at Ed
William»' new borne in which bne
carpenter was painfully and another
j slightly injured.
According to the facte obtained by
I » representative of thin paper a
force of carpenters was erecting a
water tank on a tower near the
iiouse. H. E. Baber and another
man whose name we could not learn
, were on top of the tower, which was
I about twenty feet high. While men
! below were bracing it with supports
' the entire structure fell with a ter
! riffle crash. The two men on top
were caught in the fulling timbers,
'with the result that Mr. Baber's
! lower jaw bone was broken and con
1 siderably crushed, besides losing
some of his teeth. A long, ugly
, looking >rash was cut in his chin
; which required eight stitches. Mr.
Baber's companion escaped with
only a few slight bruises.
As soon as Mr. Baber was re
moved from the wreckage of the
tower a physician was summoned!
and medical treatment remi«Ted.
Late in the afternoon he was re- j
moved to his home on Oldham ave- ;
nue and reports from him this morn- !
ing indicated that he was resting j
quite comfortable.
Birthday Party.
Little Miss Alpha Fenn, the win- !
some daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.
Lee Penn, celebrated her eighth
anniversary yesterday afternoon at
the family residence on College st.
About eighty of her little friends
were present and the afternoon was
enjovably spent in the participation
of those games so popular with the
juvenile set. The weather was de
lightful and the pretty lawn was
; fairly alive with daintily dressed
lads and lassies. The refreshments
consisted of cream and cake, and
was partaken of with great relish by j
the little fellows. Miss Alpha was j
the recipient of many little re mem- ;
brances.

Ruminating.
When the workirifrman gnaws his

over the cause of the dearness. Out
of such rumination there may come

would become harmless as fangless

COUNTY CONVENTION MEETS
Delegates Selected for the State
Convention.
The Ellis county democratic con
vention met in Waxahachie at two
o'clock this afternoon for the pur
pose of selecting delegates to the
state, congressional and judicial
conventions and to elect a chairman
of the county executive committee
for the ensuing two years. Not
withstanding the fact that it was
not generally known that this was
the day for holding the convention
a large number of delegates was
present. As no call had been pub
lished since the meeting of the ex
ecutive committee in January the
matter of holding precint conven
tions was overlooked and conse
quently several boxes were not re
presented.
It was nearly three o'clock when
Chairman Lewis called the conven
tion to order in the district court
r >om.
* John H. Hharp was made tempo
rary chairman of the convention,
\V. J. Buie, temporary secretary,
J M. Crawford, assistant secretary.
On motion the following commit
tees were appointed:
On credentials and representa
tion—J. S. Davis, B. L. Cornwell,
J. M. Alderdice,· W. M. Tidwell,
Bob Hollanian.
On permanent organization—C.
I". Fearie, J. L. Gammon, (». W.
Martin, O. C. Sanderson, B. J.
Fowler.
While the committees were out
J. A. Beall, S. P. Skinner, Judge
M. B. Templeton and others ad
dressed the convention.
The committee on organization
recommended that the temporary
organization be made permanent.
Beport was adopted.
The report of the committee on
credentials showed that several
tK)xes were without representation.
At the hour of going to press a
committee is out making up a list
[>f delegates to the various conven
tions.

Several grading outfits passed
hrough here Tuesday going up on
he line northwest of here, having
Inished their contracts south of
his place. It is given semi-offlcial
y that the grade will be ready for
rack laying by May 1 on the en
ire extension from Italy to Waco.
Jrading on the south is in sight of
own and is only about a half a mile
listant. The city council has
ranted no franchise to the railroad
et for crossing through town, but
t is generally agreed that it will
ass between the postoffice and the
taptiet church. The work is very
eavy a few miles northwest<r>f town
nd it will require several weeks to
mnplete that portion of the work,
his is usually the dull season, but
ie large number of men and teams
t work on the road in close proxi

welling the cash receipts of Italy's
