GOULD IS TO BUILD
TEXAS TO COLORADO
Rai road Erom Mineral Wells
To Trinidad Will Open
Chicago. 111., Feb. 27.— Autho-
ritative announcement has been
made that while the financial de-
pression has caused delay in the
carrying ouf of the Gould plans
for building an extension of the
Weatherford. Mineral Wells and
Northwestern division of the sys-
tem from Mineral Wells, Tex.,
northwest to a connection with
the Denver and Rio Grande at
Trinidad, Colo., the project by
no means has been abandoned.
Preliminary work in connection
with the survey is in progress.
More than 400 miles of the route
has been decided on. The ex-
tension is to be almost an air line,
of lower grade than the Fort
Worth and Denver or the Colora-
do and Southern, both of which
it will harallel for a considerable
portion of the distance.
The distance from Mineral
Wells to Trinidad is about 700
miles. This at present is the
largest railroad enterprise on
hand in the Southwest. The
particular object in view is to
jion up by the most direct route
possible the Gould system of
roads in Colorado with that in the
Southwest, in order to gain an
outlet for Colorado traffic through
Galveston. In addition to this
through traffic, which it is desir-
ed to handle economically and ex-
peditiously, the local traffic to be
obtained from the full develop-
ment of a vast region of Texas
territory to which the building of
the extension will contribute im- j
mensely, is deemed of enough j
importance to justify of itself the
prosecution of the enterprise.—
and Haynes were opponents in
the race for sheriff last election
and there sprung up an ill feel-
ing which has existed since that
Lubbock Sheriff Kills Man.
Lubbock, Texas, Feb. 27.— j
(Special)—J. W. Haynes was!
fatally shot Saturday night by L.!
W. Roberts, sheriff of Lubbock
county, and died Sunday morn-
ing at ^):30 o'clock. The ball en-
tered just under the right nipple
and came out near the backbone,
ranging downward. It is claim-
ed by Mr. Roberts that Haynes
had a knife and would notsubmit
to arrest.—Ft. Worth Record.
A message from Lubbock to
D. R. Couch, who is a brother-in-
law to Sheriff Roberts, gave the
following particulars of the kill-
ing above mentioned:
At about midnight on the night
of the killing Roberts was called
over the local telephone to come
to a certain house in town and
take charge of Haynes, who was
drinking. On approaching the
place it is said that Haynes re-
sisted arrest and made an attempt
to kill the sheriff but was himself
shoi stated above. Roberts
Mr. J. A. Kidd and Mrs. Isa-
belle J. Snellings were married
at Center View church Sunday
af 4 p. m.. Rev. A. T. Ford, pas-
tor of the church, officiating. A
large audience witnessed the cer-
emony and offered congratula-
tions. Mr. Kidd is one of our
most substantial aud well-to-do
citizens and the bride is a most
excellent lady. There is said to
be such a thing as oeople marry-
ing too young, but such is not the
case in this instance as both par-
ties are of mature age, and we
predict for them a happy union.
Here's hoping, anyway.
Good For Everybody.
Mr. Norman R. Coulter, a
prominent architect, in the Del-
bert Building, San Francisco,
says: "I fully endorse all that has
been said of Electric Bitters as a
tonic medicine. It is good for
everybody. It corrects the stom-
ach, liver and Kidney disorders
in a prompt and efficient manner
and builds up the system." Elec-
tric Bitters is the best spring
medicine ever sold over a drug-
gist's counter; as a blood purifier
it is unequaled. 50c. at Will
Marr's drug store.
