Last nigh* about 9 o'clock the peo
pie of I0|fy Sherman were much
aroused ancTexcited by the fireing of
several pistol shots in rapid sucession.
The cause whs soon learned.
Mesdamee Torn and Will Gibson
were sitting on fhe front porch about
.9 o'clock last evening when they ob
served a negro raise the bar that hold
the front gate and walk rapidly to the
Alarmed, they ran into the' house
and stainmed the door shut just in
The ne|ro ran to . the back of the
house but again the ladies shut the
" The shouts «fí* the ladies aroused
Mr. R. W. Jones, who lives close by.
Htstiry getting bis pistol be ran
with G. T. IiOux, Who was also arous-
ed, to the scene, a little before Mr.
Oibson, who was on his way home
from town, came up.
These three, joined by Deputy
Sheriff Russell, went in pursuit of the
negro, wbo^an into a corn field,
Soon Mr. Jones, who was crouch

tbeJnsfHx\approaching him, evidently
nottKxlhoiiW he was there.
MNÍJi^p jumped up and called for
him io surrender ^which he did not
do, so he flred severW shots at him at
rather olose range, but could not tell
whether ne was hit or not.
-The negro turned and ran close to
the residence of Mrs. Jackson, fright-
ening the ladies, and past the resi
dence of Mr. Tom Gibson, who fired
three shots, but couldn't tell if be
was bit or not. ■
It was 11 o'olock when he was last
seen, hut was bunted for till one
The officers are still In pursuit of
the negro, but have hardly any clue
to work on. ' ^

gro, dressed in-a black suit of clothes.

The Price of White Teeth.
. "Nearly every young woman,"
said a noted dentist recently, "has
white teeth, but young men are not
so particular. They go around with
dull and yellowish teeth, claiming
tliat they brash them religiously, but
that Binoking keeps them from being
spotless—from resembling in the
mouth, as the fellow says, 'snow on
roses/ But that ia all a lie. Lazi-
tifias, nothing else, is the trouble with
any one whose teeth are not white-
I say to siich a person: 'Brash; the
teeth five minutes daily.' I ani told ;
'Oh, Í do, at least that long.' Then
I s y ; 'Well, time yourself when
you go «t it tonwrw?. Five min-
utes may be longer than yon think'
And from then on the fellow brushes
his teeth^sufficiehtly, and. they nre
as white as a girl's. Five minutes
of toothbrush pushing, you see, is a
mighty long while. An athlete, >i
hammer thrower, told me once thai
when l«e began it the muscles of his
neck and arms were stiff for a week.*'

Women h* Ambassadors,
A^wwter^ro Lioadon Truth say it
Is quite possible that the United
States may one day appoint a woma*
embassador to a foreign court. Thert
woyld be nothing.new in this. A
writer irv the Washington Post poinu
out that the wife of Marshal Gue-
hriant was accredited as mini*ter
plenipotentiary of France at ttw
court of Ladislas tV.; king of Po *
land in 1646, while the noted Chev%
lier d'Eon, well known to be a wom-

Ba la Very ¿ütLasiaatlá OverRepub-

\ Dr. John Grant reiurned t^ Sher-
man Saturday night. After tb ad-
journment of the'republican national
conventiofi at Philadelphia, be made
what may be termed a political busi-
ness trip to New York and Washing-
ton, and came direct from the latter
city to his home.
A RkoÍstm repcter mat Dr. Grant
this morning aad sought news.
"The action of the Philadelphia
convention is history," said the doc-
tor. "The people know «s mupii
about that a 1 do. But they have _,. . .. . ...

republican pa(ty ia over the ticket oa U ptirchese
Who Will Represent,
On OctOber 14th, 1900,
and the platform put forth at Phila
delphia. Wherever I have been the
feeling is that the ticket i the very
beat that cou'd have been named.
The presiiant needs no mention. The
candidate for vice president, Theodore
Roosevelt, han a history and personal-
ity all his own. Asida from bis fame
as a hero and a man of force and ao-
tion, bo has southern connections
which give him strength which no
other republican mentioned for the
plate Cv.uld have brought to bear.
His mother was a Georgian, and he
had an uncle who was an admiral in
the Confederate nayy, beiuij^ several
other close relatives who fought for
the lost cause. Say to the people of
Texas that I am su|re the ticket is
easily a winner. The republicans
will appreciate the statement whether
other people do or not.
"By the result of the Philadelphia
convention, I have the naming of the
member of the national committee
and also the chairman of the state
committee. I have named R. B.
Hawley of Galveston for nat'.onal
committeemen, but have not desig-
nated a choice for chairman of the
state committee, ánd do not know
when I shall do so."
Dr. Grant' seemed pleased "that he
was home again, away from the strife
and turmoil of áctive politics for a
The Houston Post of recent date
published a special from Phila-
delphia which purported to be the
true inwardness of the Green defeat
and Hawlay victory. It says that
the story did not come from Dr.
Grant, but it came absolutely straight
from one of the meo on the inside.
The story is like this; "When Grant
arrived he was hand off on the whole
fight, inasmuch a he had declared
himself out of the race for national
committeeman. He was approached
by Hawley's friends and asked for as-
sistance in the war o¡i Green. He
replied that he was taking no dish in
the matter one way or the other And
intended to «e fair play on both aides.
He was playing politics. In the
meantime Grant's friends on the
national commit lee approached him
with offers of assistance In this wool
pulling raatcli. He answered them
that he was «Imply waiting for both
sides to file their evidenoe and that
he wanted the oases settled on their
merits. Hawley' friends were be
coming nervous. They again asked
Grant for assistance, but made none
of the overtures to Grant that he was
waiting for; when they came again
he flatly informed them that Hawley
could not win. It was then tbey
came to him on the dead run. They
said: 'What do you wantT If yon
desire to be re-elected national com-
mitteeman, we are for you. If you
want to be slate chairman, we are
with you. If not either, you can
name both men,'
"Now," said Dr. Grant, "yon ara
talking business at last and I am
ready poplar ball. I don't want to
b6 national committeeman, but I
want to bame the man."
"Who will tou nama?" said the
"I will name R. B. 'Hawley,"
answered Dr. Great.
"Good; who do* yoif want to be
state chairman?"- «aid the Hawley
"I doh't know yet," said Grant,
"but I want him to be my man and I
will name bim."
. "That's a bargain," said Hawley's
friend. í :
"But hold ou," said Grant; "I
want this thing clinched In the pres-
ence of witnesses. I will name •
