been married a little le·· than tlx
month· when the tilling took place.
In hi· trial for mnrder more than
one witness testified to seeing him
assault his wife in the public street
and severely beat and stamp her.
Brozier's criminal propensity was
doubtloes iuhereut, as his father,
Charley Smith, waa known as a
desperate character. About twenty
years ago he shot and killed John
Spalding:, then marshal of the city,
in a most cruel and heartless man
ner. So enraged Were the citizens
over the crime that a mob was soon
formed to hunt down the murderer.
He whs surrounded in a small out
house and literally riddled with
History oî Brozier's Crime.
Ttie cri Die for which Brozier Smith
today paid the penalty with his life
was committed about 11 o'clock on
the night of February 24. 1903.
Brozier and his wife lived in the
servants' house at the home of At
torney Yancy I). Kemble on College
street. For a few weeks prior to the ]
murder Brozier had been cooking at j
a local restnurant and his wile was
cooking and doing general house-,
work for the family of Mr. Kemble.
On the night of the killing Brozier's
wife, together with three or four
feminine friends, attended a show at
the opera house. Brozier objected!
to hisjwife attending shows and it is
said on more than one occasion he
reprimanded her for going;. Sus
pecting that she would attend on
this night he went to the opera
house and called for her. When
told that she was in the house he
hung around the door until after the
performance. Instead of accom
panying his wife home he followed
behind. His wife reached home first
and was preparing to retire when
Brozier entered the house. Closing
the door behind him he began curs
ing and abusiug his wife for going to
the show Without giving her time
to say anything in defense of her ac
tion he drew a ;tt$-caliber revolver
and fired at her four times at close
range. Three of the shots took ef
fect. One broke the woman'· neck,
another passed entirely through her
body and the third entered the fore
head just above and between the
Leaving his wife weltering in her
life-blood Brozier fled from the
scene of his crime. He went to a
saloon in Freedman where he very ί
coolly made the announcement that'
he had done the "dirty work." I
When asked what he meant he re
plied that he had killed his wife, and
shewed bloodjon his hands as a veri
fication of his statement. Leaving
the saloon Brozier came up town
wnere he was arrested by Jailer
Minnick When taken in custody
by the officer Brozier had reloaded
his revolver and had four extra car
tridges in his pocket.
Three or four days after his incar
ceration iu the county jail Brozier:
was indicted by the grand jury, ι
which convened the day the crime
was committed.

A day or two After his triai «ad
eonvietico Broiler'· attorney filed »
motion for · new trial. Tbe motion
wm overruled and notice of appeal
waa given.
Soon after the conrt adjourned the
appeal waa filed with the court of
criminal appeal· at Dallaa, bat no
action waa taken by the court until
U ù«u iieid term· at AuaiiD
and Tyler and returned to Dallaa
January 1. On the 27th r>f that
month the verdict of the lower court
waa affirmed. On February 19 the
mandate was returned to Diatrict
Clerk Burleson and on tho 23J of the
month Brozier waa taken before the
court to receive hie sentence. He
heard hi» doom pronounced with a
stoic indifference which he main
tained until the last.
Two years ago, after Jack Beall
had been nominated by his home
county for congressional honors,
each and every citizen went to work
with a vim to help him carry Hiil
and Bosque counties, which would
give him the nomination. Many El
lis county citizen - went in person to
Bosque and Hill counties and did
yeoman service in piacii.g him be
fore the voters of those counties.
Mr. Skinner, who had been Beall's
local opponent, went into those
counties and did heroic wark for his
former antogouist, and for this un
selfish act we all honor him, and j
will support him for the state senate
this year, if he wants the office.
While that memorable flght is still
fresn in our minds, and the good

ton, a member of congress,
we want to call attention to
the fact that Ellis county
alone is not entitled to all trie credit
for electing tfeall. Hon. W. C
Wear, ôf Hillsboro, one of the ablest
attorneys at the Hill county bar, or
of any other county, for that mat
ter, during that campaign closed hi» i
office, quit his practice and went >
out week after week and spoke day j
and night for Beall. With all tbe
heroic work Mr. Wear and others
did we only carried Hill into the
Beall column by a cloae ahave, and
it is our opinion that without the
he!,· of Mr. Wear in Bosque and Hill
counties Beall stood a fine show for
defeat. Ellis county people now
have an opportunity to repay in kind
the service then rendered by Mr.
Wear. He ia now a candidat" for
Attorney General of Texa*. and EM
lis county should not forget him at j
the primaries in July. Give him ai
solid vote for t lie high office to which
he aspires, and which he is fn *v»»ry
way, well qualified to fill.

Hood £ Martin Guarantee to I··

Cure the Worst Case of Catarrh

by aome unknown firm, hnndreda ol

The guarantee, though, that oom«a
with Hyomei, ia entirely different.
It ia made by Hood & Martin, one
of the moat reliable drug flrma ia
this aection. They adveniae that if
Hyomei does not cure the worst
case of catarrh, they will return the
money without auy question or ar
gument. No business house in
Waxahachie has abetter reputation
for square dealing than Hood <V
Martlu, and when thev guarantee
that tliey will refund the money if
Hyomei fails to cure catarrh, no
one has any question as to the
agreement being lived up to, both in
spirit and letter.
Hyomei is very easy and pleasant
to use. Just breathe it through the
the little inhaler that comes with
every outfit; ever/breath will bring
recovery so tyfch the nearer. It
ktlls all the Kj>nns of catarrhal trou
bles in the sûr [tassuKes of the head,
throat, amjnuuiis, soothes and heals
the irritated mucous membrane, and
is the only natural cure for catarrh.
The complete outfit costs but one
dollar, and extra bottles of Hyomei
can be obtained for fifty cents. Do
not let a slight catarrhal trouble de
velop into one that may be serious
and chronic. Γ se Hyomei at once,
remembering that you run no risk
whatever when you try Hvomei on
Hood A Martin's offer of "no cure,
no pay."
