Callan tho accomplished reporter
of the Standard last Friday night
being at work at the office getting
out tho paper Mrs. Callan being
alone in a room of their house at
the Post was awakened by the
presence of a man in the room.
The touch of the scoundrel's hand
on her throat awakened the lady
and she sprang out of the bed on
the opposite side. The man
dodged into the dark being near
a window in which the moon was
shining and Mrs. Callan secured
a pistol which she pointed at the
scoundrel at the same time call
ing to her sister who was in
another room. The young lady
called to her sister to "get the
pistol" and the impudent scoun-

he thought they were trying to
bluff him. As the young lady
came in with the light tho scoun
drel opened the door which wbb

up for the Phess as follows :

Times are hard but we like to
read the Phess.
A good rain would be very
much appreciated; the grass roots
are almost dead and it h very
disheartening to farmers.

Z. I. Williams was among the
veterans who returned from the
reunion on Sunday morning's
train. Mr. Williams is prodigal
in his praises of the people of
Dallas for the way the
reunion crowd was handled
and especially the hospitality
shown the veterans. He says
there was ample accommodations
for all and that 10000 beds weie
empty for the want of lodgers
though there weie some who fail-
ed to obtain lodgings because
they were not found by the enter-
tainment committee. The com-
missary was singly faultless
good "chuck" and well prepared
with plenty of attentive waiters.
One of the sights Mr. Williams
saw will be of interest to our
readers: An old timt darkey an
ex-slave was put by the vets to
make a speech. The old negro
was in his glory and going ahead
with his "speech" when a gray
haired veteran came up and en-
quired of the bystanders the ne-
groe'sname. He walked up to tho
ngro and interrupting his speech
enquired if he knew him. The
old negro looked at the veteran
for a minute liefoie he spoke and
finally fairly jumping with joy
he threw his arms around his old
master's neck crying "my old
master" "my old master"
"master you sho' looks good
