This company of colored singers and

musical numbers, singing, dancing and
comedy. The company is said to be
composed of the best colored talent in
the country, and carries Its own band
Catarrh, comes as a result of impurities and morbid matter in the
circulation, and is a disease that only attacks mucous membrane. The
entire inner portion of the body is lined with a delicate skin or covering
of soft, sensitive fiesh. Thousands of tiny blood vessels are interlaced
throughput this -mucous surface, and it is through thes9 that the inner
membrane receives its nourishment and is kept in. healthful condition.
When, however, the blood becomes infected; with catarrhal impurities the
tissues become diseased and Catarrh gets a foothold in the system. The
early stages of Catarrh are characterized by such symptoms as a tight,
stuffy feeling in the head, watery eyes, buzzing noises in the ears, with par
tial deafness and often difficult breathing and chronic hoarseness. These
are merely symptoms, and while sprays, inhalations and other local treat
ment may temporarily relieve them, Catarrh cannot be cured until the
blood is purified of the exciting cause. S. S. S. cures Catarrh by cleansing
the blood of all impure catarrhal matter. It goes down into the circula
tion and attacks the disease at its head, and removes every particle of the
catarrhal impurity. Then the mucous linings are all supplied with fresh,
pure blood, and allowed to heal, instead of being kept in a constant state
of irritation by the catarrhal matter. Special book on Catarrh and any
medicaladvice free. THE SWIFT SPECIFIC CO., ATLANTA, GA.

Pom Thousand Trees Plant
ed in New Orchard
Tests for Grapes.
DcPRio, Tex., Feb. 14. The produc
tion of figs on a strictly commercial
scale has become a reality in this sec
tion. A force of men is now at work
finishing- the planting" of a 20 acre
orchard for Bernard Brown in the
Waterloo settlement, east of Del Rio
some two miles. Ten acres have been
set out with one year old trees of the
magnolia variety and the other 10 acres
are being planting in cuttings. Some
4000 trees are in this orchard, about 193
being planted to the acre. Mr. Brown
is also establishing a nursery ,of 5000
cuttings and these trees will next year
be set out on an adjoining 25 acre
tract, which will make an orchard of
45 acres under one management.
"Watered from "Well.
Vegetables, including SAveet potatoes,
Irish potatoes, etc., will be planted be
tween the rows of figs this year and
probably next- The fig trees should
bear fair crops when two years old.
This orchard Is watered from a drilled
well 252 feet deep, the water level being
about 60 feet from the surface. Under
a very slow speed, the eight-horse
gasoline engine, which pulls the pump,
is supplying 55 gallons of water a min
ute. When necessary the engine can
be speeded up to capacity and the
pump will deliver from 75 to 100 gal
lons per minute.
A storage tank built of concrete,
holding 55,000 gallons of water, will
be used to Irrigate an adjoining tract.
When this orchard is finally bearing in
good quantities if no preserving plant
is then in operation in Del Rio Mr.
Brown will establish his own factory,
his private acreage being sufficient to
Justify such an outlay.
In addition to this planting many
other people In Del Rio have set out
fig trees in their home lots and vacant
premises and many of the Irrigated
farm oyners have increased their num
ber of figs.
The general planting of fruit and or
namental trees and small fruits about
Del Rio this winter has been very
gratifying to those who have interested
themselves in the improvement of hor
ticultural conditions In this valley.
One local nursery agent will have de
livered, when the season Is finally
closed, over S00 trees of both fruits and
ornamentals and he is but one of many
who have met with success In placing
nursery stock. California varieties of
table grapes are being tested this year
and if the remarks of eminent horticul
turists are to be considered and prove
truthful, the time is not to be distant
when this part of Texas will be ship
ping table grapes of the finest quality
andjuttlng them In the markets ofthe
country several weeks ahead of the
California product. It has already been
demonstrated that Muscat of Alexan
dria, Malaga and other varieties ma
ture here from four to six weeks ear
lier than they do in California. If they
will but do this when produced in com
mercial quantities Jhe future of the
table grape Industry here Is assured.

ing Used False Evidence.
Roswell, N. M., Feb. 14. Sensational
developments in" the Wells case came to
light last night with the arrest of Wil
15am T. Wells on the charge of sub
ornation of perjury. He was the de
fendant in the murder case tried last
July in which he was indicted for the
killing of Ollie Shirley.
Wells was found "not guilty" and the
defense led by Hon. William Worth
Gatewood was one of the bitterest and
hardest fought murder trials ever con
ducted in Chaves county.
Wells last night furnished the requir
ed bond of $5000 and the preliminary
hearing will come up in a few days. A
warrant was issued for J. B. Eldrige,
who was one of the attorneys for the de
fense and who is now located in Boise
City, Idaho. The complaint charges
Eldridge with subornation of perjury.
Eldrldge who was actively connected
with the Heywood-Moyer case, sold his
magnificent residence property here soon
after the verdict of "not guilty" in tho
Wells case and left Roswell.
James Walker is out on 2500 gond
on the charge of subornation of perjury
and it is allegul that he suborned J.
W. Day.
Wells is the capitalist who shot and
killed Ollie Shirley over labor troubles
in connection with the building of the
"new Wells storehouse, next to the Wells
flats on South Main street.
The case will be watched with the
keenest of interest.
