A short time ago I had another attack

IJON'T KICK AT THE SANTA FE.
The Santa Fe doesn't deserve to
have another harsh word said about
it by the people of Brenham. JNot
that it has done anything for the
city 10 merit tneir tolerance or
cause them to forbear but a people
tnat are afraid to put in black and
white what they are continually say-
ing every day should let up. If
men haven't the courage to say over
their own signature what they know
about a corporation its condition
etc. thoy should say nothing more
about late trains poor road fre-
quent wrecks etc. and this is the
attitude of the people of Brenham
towards the Santa Fe.
Everybody has been abusing the
way the Santa Fe is managing this
part of the road and when possible
to go to their destination by other
routes avoided riding on it
but one gentleman whose family were
frequent travelers on the road and
desiring to see it put in a better con-
dition clipped out the newspaper
articles about tne recent wrecks on
the road related briefly the bad
condition of the road and the incon-
venience of the failure to run on
schedule time and started out for
signers. Of course he expected that
people would tear up the petition to
the Attorney General which asked
for them to be forced to make the
road safer in their eagerness to sign
it but that's where he learned the
difference between what people will
say and what they will do and he
failed to get a man to sign the peti-
tion and gave up the idea of
petitioning the Attorney General in
disgust believing that there was a
considerable deficiency in the supply
of backbone here and that moral
courage was below par.
In all parts of the South there is
complaint of the large number of
tramps. The mild climate attracts
them as same as it does the wild
geese who come south in tho winter

leaving hero about four o'clock in
When dark overtook them Dr.
Tamplin proposed that thoy go to a
house some two or three miies out
of the way and stop at a dance which
he knew was going to be there and
after driving some distance along an
unfrequented road they drew reins
under a hill where Mr. Aiken says
Dr. Tamplin proposed they wait
awhile as it was two early to go up
to where the ball was in progress.
Mr. Aiken says that Dr. Tamplin
took the blanket from the vehicle
and said he would go up the hill a
short distance and lie down and
that after he had been gone some
time he heard the Doctor calling for
help saying that a man was on him.
He thought that his pistol was in
his pants pocket and started to the
assistance of the doctor but before
reaching the spot from whence the
cries proceeded discovered that he
didn't have his pistol and remember-
ed having left it in his overcoat
pocket and started back to tbe
vehickle to get it. Just before reach-
ing his overcoat he was confronted
by two men who demanded
BIS HONES OR HIS LIFE
and he shelled out what little change
he had some seven or eight dollars
and kept talking to the robbers and
suggested that if they were through
with him he would put on his over-
coat as he was getting cold a ruse
he was trying to work to get his
pistol. They at first talked about
appropriating the coat but finally
he got it and proceeded to draw his
gun which he fired at the retreating
robbers but without effect as far as
He at once went to where they
had tied the horse but it had either
broken loose or been turned loose
and without any ceremony he started
back to Brenham on foot. While en
route he was accosted by Dr.
Tumplin coming out afoot also and
together they walked in to Brenham
arriving here between two and
three o clock Wednesday morning.
A Banner reporter saw Mr. Aiken
at his store and the above is the re-
lation of the facts as he gave them.
He does not even express a suspicion
he only relates the circumstances.
Dr. Tauiplin was not seen hence the
Banner does not what his theory of
the affair is.

THE ANNUAL Y. M. C. HALL.
The full dress ball at Eldridge
hall Tuesday night under the auspi-
ces of the Young Men's Social club
was a brilliant social success per-
haps exceeding any of the preyious
half dozen they have given about
the same time lor the past six years.
Quite a number of society favorites
from tho neighboring towns of Col-
umbia Richmond Bellville and In-
dependence were in attendance to
add to the brilliancy of the assem-
blage the grace of their steps and
the heavenly light of their eyes.
A reporter peeped in on the eav
scene just at 12 o'clock and
watched for a few moments the
nymps as they glided with fairy like
swiitness to the "music that arose
with voluptuous swell" and would
like to have undertaken the task of
describing the many beautiful cos-
tumes worn on the occasion but
there was too many and the task
too great Suffice it to say that
thep were beautiful. The gentle
men were attired m tho conventional
full dress suits had on their Ward
McAllister manners and were sral-
lantly storming the fortress of
hearts that build up hopes when ad-
dressed to meet tho sunset glories
of the west. It was 2 o'clock be
fore tho conclubion of tho ball
which will long be remembered by
the numerous attendants as one of
th3 most enjoyable ever given in
