it-was ever the honor of a secretary

heartfelt gratitude to every membor
Of the delegation.
Excellent Performance. Last
night at the Electric theater a very
fine production from the well known
story of Damon and Pythias was giv
en to a large and appreciative au
dience. This was anr extra long pic
ture, being in two rolls, and it was
also one of the best pictures seen here
this season. A good programme was
also given at the Celford theater, the
picture entitled "Blue Bird" was very
pretty, being hand-colored. The fam
ous "Salome Dance" was also good,
and rather startling.
, Ball Gam Tomorrow. A game of
baseball is scheduled to take place
tomorrow afternoon at the Baseball
Park between the regular Brownsville
team and "Brant's Gobblers." This
promises to be a close and interesting
game as it is well known to all that
.the regular team is comnosed of
some of the best amatpur ball players
in Texas. While the "Gobblers" are
not familiar to the city fans, yet they
are composed of some of the best
local talent and promise to give the
regular nine all they can do, if they
don't "gobble" them up completely.
Wanted His Wife. Tuesday morn
ing about 4 o'clock, Tsadore Garcia,
a Mexican, called at the home .of
Tomaso Garza, keeper of the ceme
tery, who lives near the cemetry, and
begun hammering on the door, de
manding admittance stating that he
wanted his wife, who was staying
at the home of Garza. The wife of
Garza went to the door and remon
strated with Ysadoro for creating a
disturbance, whereupon be hit her
in the right eye with his fist, com
pletely closing that optic. Garza
seeing Ysadoro hit his wife, imme
diately seized a club and struck Ysa
doro a stunning blow on the fore
head, causing that belligerent gentle
man to reflect that the ways of the
transgressor are hard and that dls
gbun hammering on the door, de
after the convincing "argument" of
Garcia he immediately fled from the
scene. In the police court Ysadoro
was fined $3 and trimmings.
