Something New to Them
When the first bootlegger of Aus-
tin county was tried in the district
court here this week, and the “ev-
idence” produced in open court, so
much anxiety was shown on the part
of the spectators to “peep” thereat,
that the judge had to order the court
room cleared of all spectators. This
is good proof that our natives are not
familiar with bootleg merchandise,
otherwise this anxiety would not have
been so demonstrative. Good, pure

Big Gasser Blows in Near
Victoria, Jan. 16.—The Rook oil
well on the Rock ranch, between Re-
fugiy and Woodsboro, about 35 miles
southwest of Victoria, blew in Mon-
day afternoon as a big gasser. The
initial flow was estimated at 30,0.00,-
000 cubi1.: feet of gas, which soon af-
ter the well came in caught on fire-
and was still burning late Monday
night. The flames leaped so high in
the air and burned with such brillian-
cy that the glow could be seen in
Victoria, 35 miles away Monday
night. The roar of the burning well
could be heard for a distance of 15
miles. The well is being sunk by the

that caused his death while transfer-
ing the wires from an old post to a

part is crashed to the ground, carry-
ink Mr. Barros with it, as his safety
belt was attached * to the post. Dr.

dition, death resisting aSout thirty
minutes later. Decedent was twen-
ty-two years-of as'e, and is survived
by his parents, tyo brothers and

numerous friends who will mourn his

Chiropractor Charged With Homicide
Charged with homicide by negli-
gence in the second degree, C. E.
Sauer, Weimai^j Chiropractor, was
arrested last Saturday at Weimar
and held for the county court under
bond of $1,000. The charge grew out
of fchc death o# Manfred Schietinger,
second son of Mr. and Mrs. C. G.
Schietinger, who is said to have died
of diptheria. It is alleged that Sauer
refused to use treatments of known
value in this dread disease and relied
solely on chiropractic adjustments to
cure the sufferer. T^e charges were
filed by Sheriff Wegenhoft on infor-
mation furnished him. The warrant
for Mr. Sauer’s arrest was mailed to
Deputy Sheriff Chas. Herder and the
arrest made by him, the bond beipg
placed at $1,000. His bond was sign-
ed by Henry Seifert and Henry Hel-
ler, prominent citizens of Weimar.
The case has beeh set for trial on
Dublin, Jan. 13.—Ratification of
the Irish-British .peace treaty Jan-
uary 7, practically brought to an end
the fight for Irish freedom that has
been waged for more than 750 years.
The British parliament has already
■unanimously approved the treaty.
• Friendship between th« English
and Irish people ceased a? the tim^
of the invasion of Ireland credited to
Strongbow, heir to the earldom of*
Pembroke and a liege of Henry 11.
This conquest occurred in the twelfth
Henry 11, dispatched a' f&rce of
Anglo-Norman troops under piarmid
MacMurragha to occupy Dublin. That
city and several other Irish towns
were taken. After this victory,
Strongbow, one of the lieutenants
under MacMurragha, married the
leader’s daughter. *He assumed the
throne of Leinster at his father-in-
law’s death in 1171. Henry then
went to Ireland and established Dub-
lin castle as the seat of government.
The castle has been headquarters for
Great Britain in Ireland ever since.
The first revolution in Ireland was
in 1798. It was almost entirely dir-
ected by Protestants, one of whom
was Lord Edward Fitzgerald, a pic-
turesque Irish leader.
Robert Emmet, a Protestant, w/is
one of the best loved her<ps of, Ire-
land. He organized the1 revolt of
Later Emmet was captured, con-
victed of treason,, and was hanged on
Sept. 20, 1803, In an eloquent speech
from the gallows he bade no one to
place an epitaph on his tomb until
Ireland was free.
Other great men in Irish history
include Theobold Wolfe Tone, Henry
Grattan, Charles Stewart Parnell,
Daniel O’Connell, “the great libera-
tor,” and Terence MacSwiney, lord
mayor of Cork, whp starved hlmsdlf

Eamon de Valera was elected pre-
''**■ t'SIflt-fVf' 5T the “Irish. saputollc” by ,the
Irish national assembly in 1919. He
was in hiding then, hunted by Bri-
tish troops, follWing his sensational
escape from Lincoln prison.
He was born In New York City.
His rWother, before her marriage to
the Spaniard, was Kate Coll, native
of County Limerick Ireland. Shortly
,befOre the Irish rebellion of 1916, he
was teaching Gaelic at- the Royal
College of Surgeons, Dublin. Then
he became a r.iajqr in the Irish forc-
es. After ^ long stand he sur-
rendered and was sentenced to be
shot, a sentence later commuted to
Michael Collins, who >- gained in
power during the last year, both at
war and at peace, is considered the
logical successor to De Valera as
leader, although an older man may
be chosen as the first premier.
The Sinn . Fein organisation which
concluded the peace agreement with
Great Britain was formed in 1905
for the purpose of boycotting all
things English in Ireland. Arthur
Griffith, signer of the" present treaty,
was one of the prime movers in the
organization of Sinn Fein.
