pleasant, balmy weather has been
re rule, and the thermometer has
cdimbed up to 74, that high point
peing reached Sundey. Dr. W. C.‘
Kendrick, who is recognized author
ity on the weather, and for years
nas consulted a thermometer twice
a day and upon returning at night,
avs that at 1 o’clock on Friday and
Qturday it registered 70, and at the
same hour on Monday it was 72. It
has been thirty years, he declares,
since this section has known such a
mild winter.
All kinds of vegetation are show
ing the effects of the mild winter.
Blooms are seen on the old stalks
in many cotton fields where they
have not been plowed up, and Mr.
G. B. McNeil informs The News that
many green bholls, some of which are
opening, can be seen on his farm. Mr.
Miles Blackshear showed The News
a few days ago a piece of a limb from
a post oak that had on it new, ten
der green leaves. He said the en
tire tree had put on its spring and
summer robe.
Dawson has been comparatively
cool when compared to Abilene, Tex
as, for instance, where a tempera
ture of 82, or two degrees above
summer heat, was registered Friday.
At several other places in Texas the
mercury has registered 80, and the
same temperature was recorded at
Tampa, Fla., while at many other
southern points more than 70 de
grees of heat have been recorded.
Blizzards Elsewhere.
Unusually warm wather is found
thiroughout the whole country, ex
cept in a narrow strip in the north
west, where the lowest temperature
recorded is that at Havre, Mont.,
which is 10 degrees above zero. At
Grand Junction, Col., Saturday four
men were Kkilled and more than a
score had narrow escapes from death
when an avalanche of snow swept
over a mining camp. - It will be mid
summer before the bodies can be re
tovered. Caught in the steep moun
tain trails by a blizzard, which raged
all day, are eight six-horse teams
carrying $6,000 in gold and many
bassengers. The avalanche was fifty
feet high.

Weather produced thunderstorms, at
Duluth and Detroit. The center of
the heat wave is over the central and
lower Mississippi valley, and as far
north as St. Louis and Cincinnati a
temperature of 60 degrees has been

Mr. Roberts Says Sentiment Badly
Divided Over Carmack Tragedy.
Mr. J. W. Roberts reached home
Monday from Nashville, Tenn., where
he spent a week with his son, Mr.
J. S. Roberts.
He says interest in the Tennessee
city is now centered in the trial of
Colonel Cooper and son for the Kkill
ing of Ex-Senator Carmack, and that
public sentiment is pretty evenly
Carmack was shot down beside a
telephone pole, and Mr. Roberts says
it was necessary to protect it with a
covering of metal to keep people who
wanted a relic of the horrible tragedy
from literally cutting it in two. As
it is, great holes were cut in the pole
before measures were taken to pro
tect it.

Walter Scott Was Convicted of Hav
ing Whiskey in His Place of
Business and Fined $3OO.
Three of the five negroes who were
arrested in the raid made by officers
on Christmas eve day and later
bound over to the city court were
placed on trial during the session of
the court last week.
Walter Scott was the first to be
tried, and the jury was not long in
returning a verdict against him for
keeping whiskey in his place of bus
Claud Holland and John Guerry
were the other two who were put on
trial, and in both cases a mistrial
resulted, the jury in each case re
maining out a part of two days and
one night. In the Holland case it is
said the jury stood five for conviec
tion and three for acquittal, while
in the Guerry case they are said to
‘have been equally divided, standing
'six and six most of the time, though
on some cof the ballots there were
'seven and eight for conviction.
\ The cases of the other two charged
with harboring the sightless beasts—
:Jim Walker and Leroy Jones—were
‘not reached, and went over until the
'next term of the court.
" Judge Edwards sentenced Scott to
Itwelve months in the chaingang or
a fine of $3OO. His attorneys gave
inotice of a motion for a new trial,
'and he gave bond and was released.
Not a Single One of the $45,000 Is
sued by Dawson Banks Was Lost.
Every one of the $45,000 of cer
tificates that were issued by the
banks of Dawson in November, 1907,
to relieve the business depression,
has been redeemed. The last three
that were out showed up last Friday
after more than a year’'s wanderings
in the channels of trade, and were
promptly redeemed. They amounted
to $3O.
It is little less than remarkable
that $45,000 worth of local certifi
cates could be circulated in the
channels of trade and not one of
them be lost or destroyed.
The Dawson certificates were rec
ognized everywhere as good as gold,
and there is no doubt that they were
of much benefit at the time they were
anne Gurr and Susie Mae Dozier
were delightful numbers. The re
mainder of the evening was spent in
making fudge. Delightful refresh
ments were served.
A Theater Party.
Miss Claire Wooten entertained
Thursday evening at a theater party,
and afterwards at a hot buffet sup
per for Miss Vivian Henderson of
Beaumont, Texas, the attractive
house guest of Mrs. Mary Baldwin.
Those present were Miss Henderson,
Miss Leila Kendrick of vanville, Ky.,
Miss Olive Thornton of Hurtsboro,
Ala., Messrs. Gene Baldwin, Tom
Pickett, John Ed Morris and Callo

A Candy Pulling.
Miss Alice Johnstone entertained
her Sunday school ciass at a candy
pulling Friday afternoon. It was a
very delightful and informal affair
for all the guests. Games were
played on the lawn.
A Large Audience Witnessed a Very
Delightful Entertainment.
A pretty and delightful event was
the Baby Opera Thursday evening
under the direction of Miss Katherine
Couric for the benefit of the public
library. The opening tableau, ‘“Cu
pid’s Garden,” with little Miss Ethel
Horsley as Cupid, and the other fig
ures in bright and dainty dresses,
was perfect in every detail, and
charmed everyone present. The lit
tle ‘“Wax Dolls : Just From Paris”
were dainty and lovely in gay-flower
ed dresses, and their pretty little
songs were very enjoyable. The little
“Sunbonnet Girls”’ in their songs
with their slates were typical little
school girls, and very attractive in
their dainty bonnets and aprons. The
“Moonbeams’” and ‘‘Sailor Lads’ in
blue and white gave several pretty
choruses, and in their marches and
drills were charming and graceful.
The ‘‘Dashing Cow Boys’ and ‘‘Prai
rie Girls”’ closed the programme with
song and tableau. They wore west
ern costumes, and their choruses
were among the most pleasing num
bers. The last tableaun, “Red Wing,”’
was exceedingly effective. A wig
wam with ‘“Red Wing’’ inside and
the very appropriate settting was a
charming close for the enjoyable pro
Miss Couric’s original and unique
entertainment is one of the greatest
successes of the season, and richly
