An explosion of sufficient force
to burst the exhaust pipe of the
gasoline engine into smithereens
occurred at the Oak Hall saloon
at about 10 o'clock Saturday
night. The noise of the explos-

Jilocks of where it occurred and
created considerable excitement
until it was ascertained that no
damage of any consequence had

Hr. Y. P. Bowers' of Joshua
formerly of this county was in
the city yesterday en route home
from Giddings where he attended
the funeral of his son Mr. J. E.
Bowers whose death at Houston
Monday has already been
chronicled. During a brief call
Tuesday morning Mr. Bowers
informed the Banner that the
crop prospects in Johnson county
were never better for the time of
year. Wheat and oats are espe-
cially fine. Corn is not so well
advanced as in this section but
gives every evidence of an
abundant yield. The growth of
cotton has been somewhat re-
tarded by cold weather other--wise
the crop is in excellent condition.

Ant Street Highwayman.
Nancy McFarland a dusky
Venus residing in Shadyville
fell into the clutches of a lone
highwayman on Ant street Sat
urday morning who relieved her
of the sum of fifty cents her en

Policeman Lockett was notified
of the robbery and gave imme-
diate chase to the thief. The
race was a fruitless one and the
robber is still at large.

Umpire's Unhappy Lot.
The Calvert rooter who report-
ed the first game between Bren-
ham and Calvert says: There
was a game of ball yesterday af-
ternoon between the Calvert and
Brenham teams which resulted
in favor of the latter by a score
of 8 to 7. The game was lost to
Calvert on errors and the umpire.
In the fifth inning the umpire
Was removed and the the other
four innings were umpired satis-
factory. There is no doubt but
that the Brenham team puts up
the best amateur ball in the state
but they would have lost their
laurels yesterday but for the
errors of the Calvert team and
bad umpiring in the beginning.
They play again to-day and to-
morrow. The case in justice court
against Wood Lusk for stabbing
John Matthews was continued
Saturday to await further de-
velopment. Lusk was placed
