FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 23 1906.
The negroes of San Antonio
have filed a protest with the Mayor
asking- that he forbid ''The Clans-
man" to show there tonight and
tomorrow night. Mayor Callahan
acceeded to their petition to the ex-
tent of referring the matter to a
committee which met yesterday-to
hear the protest and will report
their recommendation to the city
council whichwilltheu at once take
steps to prevent tire show though
much fear is expressed and felt
that it will really be two days to
The negro Dick Garrett who
murdered Dr. Mike Paul in Center
Texas less than a week ago was
arraigned for trial Wednesday
at 9:30 a. m. a jury of twelve
men good and true was empan-
eled the case went to trial and
lasted an hour and a half the jury
retired to form a verdict returned
in seven minutes with a verdict
of guilty and" at 1:20 p. m. of the
same day four hours from the be-
ginning of the trial Garrett
was enjoying the comforts and
warmth of the sweet bye and bye.
The hanging was legal in every
respect and was a record breaker
for saving time and expense. With
work like this Judge Lynch will
be forced to resign.
From what little we can learn
about college and university cus-
toms we imagine that it will be
worth while going to Austin to see
the' Thanksgiving foot ball game
between Varsity and A. '& M. In
view of the fact that rivalry has
always existed between the two
institutions and the further fact
that it has lately been fanned to
fever heat by the A. & M. men
wearing "Ts." on their sleeve's
wc venture to prophecy that things
will be lively and after the game
the athletic field will be covered
with "trinkets and tresses and
locks of hair and- peces of gar-
ments they used to wear" there
will be enough pieces of clothing
to make a plutocrat of a ragman
and some of these fragments will
bear on them the mystic device
Peculiar Weather Condition.
The severest cold spell of the
season prevailed in this section Ihis
morning when the mercury drop-
ped to 33 degrees in town and 31
degrees in the surrouudiug country
proving detrimental to tender vege-
tation like beans and tomatoes. In
the city there was heavy frost with
killing frost in the country but it
is not believed that cabbage and
other hardy vegetation will suffer
much. Peculiar weather conditions
have prevailed here during the-past
week as Observer Cline of the
weather bureau reports that on last
Saturday it was one degree warmer
than on any day during the month
of August while this morning was
the coldest up to November 21 in
the history of the local observatory
The coldest November day on rec
ord. hovxever was Nov. 30 1896
With the above peculiar conditions
prevailing it is no wonder that the
change sent a chill through our
people. Corpus Christ! Caller.'

an dner cabled to mm yesieruay
by the proprietor of a fashionable
cafe. The cable was worded sub
stantially as follows:
"Count Boni de Castellaue Paris

francs a vear to take charge of
waiters and manage restaurant

"Count Boni is just the man I'm
looking for" Mr. Martin said.
My patrons will be interested in a
head waiter with such an interesting
character as that revealed in Mme.
Gould's divorce. Count . Boni is
graceful fascinating and undoub-
tedly knows good food and how to
serve it. I made the oner a hand-

Count Boni has scruples about go

circumstances how he can afford to
decline my offer. Think of it! He
would be the highest paid head
waiter in the world and with the
tips added to his salary he could
accumulate a competence by exer-
cising a little frugality."
FEW MEXICAN ORANGES HERE
Falling Off in Importation of
Affect the Collections at
San Antonio Gazette.
The customs collections on the
Rio Grande border will be about
$30000 less this year than last
owing to the big increase in the
number of cars of Mexican oranges
Usually at this time of the year
hundreds of cars of the fruit are
shipped to all portions of the Unit
ed States. The duty is high and
the government collects many thou-
sands of dollars from this source.
The customs officials here say that
less than 50 cars all told have been
shipped from Mexico this year.
The officials are at a loss to know
whether the falling off is due to a
failure of the crop or a lack of de-
mand. The latter is more probable
as the report reaching here are ta
the effect that the orange crop this
year has been a good one.
The Mexican orange is not of so
good a quality as those of Florida
or California and as these crops
have been heavy this year it is be-
lieved this accounts for the lack of

That Bridle Again
The. Herald is in receipt of a
letter from an inmate of the State
prison of far-away Montana asking
for its assistance in disposing of a
bridle made of calf skin and horse
hair either by sale or raffle. Thi
prisoner says he is serving a term
for manslaughter. Brownsville
About two years ago the Times
had a letter from -this Montana
prisoner about one of those horse
nair oridies and trom tne way
that jail bird has kept it up Be is
undoubtedly one of the most enter
prising men of his time. Soon af
ter the Times went out of its way
to sell that bridle it began to no
tice that papers all over the State
were being used. In each instance
the prisoner said he wanted to get
money to pay for having a brief
printed in order to get his case ap-
pealed. He told the same story
to every editor to whom he ap
pealed and we presume he is still
trying to get money to have that
However the bridle the Times
received was a work of art and
was sold for enough to print two
or three briefs.
If that fellow ever gets out of
jail he is not going to starve. In
fact if he doesn't become a plutc
crat it will surprise us. Laredo
A small boy sat on his father's
knee holding a hand-mirror. He
ooked intently at his father then
at his own reflection. Suddenly
'Father who made you?"
God made me" came the an
"Who made me father?"
"God made you too my son'
the father replied.
Well he's doing lots better
work now isn't he father?"
In after years a man sometimes
wishes he had attended this own
funeral instead of his wife's weor

Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is onlyone way to cure deafness
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con-
dition of the mucous lining of the Eus-
tachian Tube. When tin's tube is inflam-
ed you have a rumbling sound or imper-
fect hearing and when it is entirely clos-
ed Deafness is the resnlt and unless the
inflammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition
hearing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of ten are -caused by Catarrh
which is nothing but an inflamed condi-
tion of the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh)
that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh
Onre. Send for circulars Jrec.
