KC&U.fl All Bryan was greatly shocked yes terday morning when the sad news was phoned in from the Brazos bottom that Capt. Win. A. Bell was dead. At first t was hard .to believe that this stalwart, strong, manly man was dead, but additional messages came giving assurance that the report was only too true. Death came suddenly without a moments warning and was evidently the result of heart failure. The partic ulars as the Eagle gathered them are about as follows: He had gone from bis home on the Parker plantation down to his own farm some three miles away and wa3 riding over the farm inspecting the work being done by the hands. He alighted from hio horse to assist a negro in adjusting his plow, and as soon as adjusted the nof.ro drove on. After toiny: a short listance lie looked back and jusi as he did so t'apt. lieil was falling. II iiiiinediatt l.v ran to him, but he never spoke and drew his last breath just as the negro reachd him. News was at once sent to the Park er s'oic and Mr. .Milton Parker and several other gentlemen went down and conveyed his lifeless body to his Ineliie. As soon as the news reached Bryan, Messrs. (J. S. Parker, .1. 1'. But ler, Seth .Mooring, Dr. W. 1 1. Oliver. .1 O. Chance and K. 1 1. Aslln left at onee for the Parker planiation in ilie bottom. Of course I le y found him beyond the pale of human aid. but the jjreat friendship they cherished for the distinguished dead inflil"!ieed them in wishing to be nenr 'him to rentier whatever assistance wasiii.s-ib!e.

'county when six yuars of aso and was! ! raised near Ibis city by his uncle, fan'., i YVm. Bell i-'r. Soon aft r reaching his I majority h' went to the Bi azoj bo' ! torn to live and soon thereafter was j engaged by Mr. M. Parker To assist I in managing his extensive farming 'interests. He had continued in thi capacity for the past tl:i::y was beyond quest on one of the mo -4 successful farmers, as well as farm managers, to be found anywhere. It Is doubtful if he had an equal In Tex as. The hands under him held him almost in reverence, their great re spect being won by hi-i quiet, gentle, yet absolute firmness with them. With the other managers and owners in the boitoui. he was alwas in perfect har mony and bore their good will and highest esteem. When asked upon one occasion the secret of his perfect harmony with all about him, replied that he made it a rule to treat the other fellow just a little better than tne treatment he received from him. ' Capt. Bell was a perfect type of the Southern gentleman. Courteous and amiable to all with whom he came in contact, as brave as a lion, yet as gen tle and tender as a woman. Strong and rugged physically, with a heart of oak, and a sense of hnor that was never questioned. By his upright life, his square, fair dealng with hU fellow men, he was respected and revered by all, anil builded for himself a monu ment more lasting than brass-the monument of a good name, that which is! to be desired rather than great riches. Mr. Bell wa3 neever married and leaves no family of his own. He had one half sister, Mrs. John R. Davis of Iola, and was an uncle of W. H.. and C. M. Bell of this city. He was also related to Mrs. Sam L. Eaves, Mrs. Burt Norwood, Mr. John Nabors, and ha other relatives in different parts of the state. Vl He will be laid to rest in the City (emetery this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, the funeral to be conducted from the residence of Mrs. Bettie Bell IS GOOD FOR A HIGH GRADE . .. . . .1 . .:!. (. . '.
