The show windows present such
an attraction for the little ones that
it is with difficulty that a child can be
escorted around the business por-
tion of the city.
So many people are rushing from
one place to another to visit their
old homes relatives friends etc.
that railroad travel is heavy and
but little work will be dono until
after the holidays.
The pretty weather of Friday
brought in a great many country
people and Christmas goods went

that such weather will prevail during

Four of the bums that have been
hanging around here for the past
few days have been arrested. Two
of tbem were run in late Thursday
evening by Marshal Swain. The po-
lice have instructions to arrest
every one of them as they are
found. A determined effort will be
made to rid the city of the gang
which is one of the toughest that
ever struck here. It is believed
that they are here for no good and
that their room will be more accept-
able than their company.
Mb. T. A. Holland who for the
past few months has been in the
photograph business at Wharton is
at home to spend the holidays and
is warmly welcomed by his many
friends among the young folks. But
"Tom" as he is familiarly called here
has made many friends in his new
home and on the eve of his departure
was tendered an elegant reception
and a full dress ball given in his
Wednesday night Policeman John
Lockett arrested and locked up Joe
Bradford a bum who has been
around here only a few days for the
theft of three lamps taken from Hu-
ber's bazar Wednesday evening.
The thief had no earthly use for the
lamps as evidenced by the fact that
before he was captured he had given
two of them away but perhaps just
stole tbem because the opportunity
presented itself being such a consti-
tuted thief that he would perhaps
steal anything he could carry and
that wasn't nailed.
Wednesday night an unknown
white man a crippled mendicant
who has been "doing the city" with
his right arm in a sling was found
trying to pick the lock at the back
door of Messrs. Haubelt Bros store
Mr. Frank Haubelt made the dis
covery and throwing a sis-shooter
down on the burglar held him until
the Police wbi&tle was answered by
Policeman P A. Henderson who
took him in charge and after con-
siderable resistance and much pro-
fanity and abuse from the man
landed him in the lock up and
Thursday morning made complaint
against him for burglary.

A GHASTLY DISCOVBKT.
Safe Asburry an old colored
man came in about 7 o'clock Thurs
day night and reported to tne au-
thorities that at i o'clock while look-
ingfor his cowsin Mr. J. B. Brophy's
pasture three miles west of this city
he had made the frightful discovery
of a deud white woman lying beside
an unfrequented road through the
pasture. He hastened from the spot
and reported th e matter to some of
his neighbors n one of whom could
identify her whe.a they were piloted
to the place whiiro she was found
The old man was sent here at once
for an officer that an inquest might
be held but Just ice Curry was out
of town and Judg'e Kirk was at his
room sick consequently at a late
hour no one had been found who
was authorized to hold an inquest.
The case is a s trange one men
who were raised in the comunity did
not know the woman and the fact
of her being old r enders it all the
more strange that an old woman
should have been n imbling through
there far away from home or friends.
No inquiry has bee n heard of any
woman missing in t he county all of
which thickens the m ystery.
ACTING good sa makitans.
Among the num erous passen-
gers in the wreck on the Santa Jfe
above here Tuesday i Horning was a
number of ladies and c '.htldren all of
whom were brought tc t the city and
left at the union de pot some of
them unable to purcb lase the com-
forts necessary to sta y off hunger
but the good samarit ans of Bren-
ham thought of them at noon and
those who were down i tbout the de-
pot might have seen 3 fr. and Mrs.
Hugh Miller and Miss Buth Clem-
mons bearing: them a s teaming hot
dinner which was servec I in the wait'
ing room without mon ey and with
out price save the con: jciousness to
these kind and though tful people
that they had done as they would
like to have been done b' t under sim
ilar circumstances and ' yould have
perhaps recalled the foL" lowing line3
from Mrs. Hale :
"As the rivers farthest flowii lg
In the highest hills have bi rth;
As the banyan broadest gro wing
Oftenest bows its head to e arth
So the noblest minds press inward
Channels far of good to tra ce;
So the largest hearts bend d jwnward.
Circling all the human race. "
The nomandic cosmop olites the
friendless man at whose di nected ap
pearance the unfeeling pn )ud passes
unheedinglv by the r( amers of
penury's barren path scor ned by the
world or as they are comi nonly call
ed the tramps pressed by their
wants have been flocking: into Bren-
ham in such great nunibt 3rs during
the past few days as to alarm the
city authorities as to w hat to do
Eight of them were la nguiehing
in the city prison Friday and Mar-
shal Swain at a late hour was unde-
cided what to do with the m.
An incoming train Thur: sday night
dropped half a dozen mori 3 here and
a number are skulking o' a the out-
skirts. There is no city vork they
are a dead expense to t he city to
keep them imprisoned an 1 if turned
nut they are liable to com .mitt some
depredation before they leave and
hence the quandary. T he result
will probably be that th ey will be
escorted under guard to t' ae edge of
the city limits and given a good start
towards the next town.
