MRS. MARY GRAY WRITES
OF TRIP TO OBERAMERGAU
Tells of what She Saw at the Famous
ENJOYING A TIIIP OVER EUROPE
The Courier-Times was handed
the following letter from Mrs.
Mary Gray of this city, who
writes to her mother, Mrs. Hern,
don, about her trip to see the
Passion Play. The letter fol-
Ravenna, June 9th, 1910.
Dear Mamma:—We have had aj
awful haiá week's travel to get O'jor
ammergau In and get back on the or-
iginal schedule. We had one day oa the
Italian lakes and they are very very
(beautiful, but I was especially tired
that day and did not enjoy the won-
derful panorama which constantly un-
folded itsoll to our view; the lovely
lakes surrounded by high verdure clad
r.'jountains with red roofed villages
perched1 at all hlghts, and here and
there a vista of snowey mountains fur-
ther away. We traveled all day from
Milan and reached Innsbruck for din-
ner. That, you know, is right in the
heart of Tyrol—a cup like depression
among the snowy mountains right at
one. That night we went to a beer gar-
den and heard Tyrolean singers in na-
tive costume yoM sad dance, w
wanted to stay a week, but it was off
again at noon, as far as Munich,
which we reached in time for dinner
that nlglit. Munich we did not see at
aW, though some of the party who are
made of cast iron went out that night.
On again next morning to Oberam-
crgau arriving there Saturday noon.
You know when I was there 10 years
ago it rained and snowed so much that
I saw nothing of the town. We went
prepared for cdld weather, but the un-
expected happened. It was warm and
sun-shiny. We lodged with I'Vunt/.
Rutz and took our meals with Auto
Lauf the Christus. His wife Is charm
ing and served us fine meals. The vil-
lage is very quaint. Every street is
crooked as can be and houses all set
at ungles to t&ch other; every t'i.ns is
spotless. It is crowded with Ameri-
cans, one, hears no other language. We
were all rested up all ready for the
play. It begins at 8 o'clock in the
morning and continues 'till 12 M.. then
an Intermission of two hours and ends
at 6 :p. m. I believe I too kit in better
this time because there was not as
great an emotional stimulus, and I had
time to observe the ¡beauty of group
lng, and1 massing of coior 'and the fine
acting of those holding the center of
the stage. Judas is the finest actor; he
is the same as 10 years ago. His
daughter is the Maria, and^makes a
mu'ch better than the one 10 years
ago. I went over to their house and
toiifct thei" r'-ctures ano they ptit
their autographs on thenv. Anton
Lang held a short reception for all the
Bureau people merely shaking hands
with each. These are very simple
kindly iteople, not at all puffed up by
all the adulation that Is showered on
tbPb day ofte- nay. Mrs. I ang tAipp*;:-
intends the meals and waits on table
herself. They do «very thing in th< •
power to keep the play from becom-
ing commercialized. The seats—some
good, some worse—none are bad—are
given out to the house-holders the af-
ternoon before the performance, and
he or she sells what she has to her
puests, the number which she has
feent in. One may draw 10 mark seats
or 4 mark. Grace and I had the latter,
but they were very good. Having the
sunlight on the tableaux made them
so much more effective than they
were gefore. I have not heard a single
adverse criticism. All has been praise
and wonder that this little village
about the size of Mineóla could pro
duce a play that would draw thfe
world to its doors to look and marvel.
We left early Monday morning, took
up our baggage at Munich and travel-
led back the long way we had come
over the Brenner pass, through Inns-
bruck, and spent the night at Trent.
The day up and the day back over the
Alps was glorious in scenic Interest,
Ibut awfully tiring, largely due to the
seats being constructed with abso-
lutely no regard to the shape of the
human 'back. The ray reminded me of
the one which you recall with such
pleasure—from ienna to Venice.
,We only stayed the night in Trent,
but the view was so beautiful from
my window 1 could hardly get dressed
—and, I must record the fact—we had
real coffee for breakfast with shipped
cream in it! Into .Venice at noon
Tuesday. By all tills hurrying, we sav-
ed a day for Venice, our schedule,
strange to say, gave us no time there
at all. We went straight to the Yaht
being met by our launch at the station
came the whole length of the Grand
Canal. How I envied the people who
had1 never b$en there their first sensa-
tion. We shopped all the first after-
noon in those most fascinating and
confusing shops, bought hat pins and
beads, one can't help it, its in the air.
I bought a very handsome piece of
fine glass, paid the duty and had it
shipped homo. If you remember, it is
something like the one Nonie has. I
toici hlni to start it the middle of
August. Don't know whether I was l'ool
ish or not. Next morning we went to
the gallery. Mr. Pilcher explaining
some of the famous paintings. Grace
was sick. Went with her right after
lunch to the dentist, tooth all right,
$2.00 for looking at it. The rest went
to see ¡St. Mark's and other sights, but
we fooled the time away looking in
shop windows principally. The yacht
was anchored off the plazzeta and we
had a most charming view of the
t>oge palace, costum house and
Maria Salute. We weighed anchor at
7 o'clock. Our going out from the har-
bor was beautiful, especially when the
sky line of domes anci campaniles
grew misty beyond the opolescent sea.
The yacht is quite large. There are
17 aboard, but we take on probably 25
more in eight days at Brindise. The ta
ble is set oil top deck uud.v an awn-
ing (dark ono;. "We sleep n fjompart-
ments on the next deck, open to the
sea on the other side, but can be can-
vased in water tight, and compart-
ment just underneath in which we
keep our things, 'bathe and dress. The
women's and men's apartments have
no connection with each other. Mr.
Pilcher and "Woozie" 17-year-old boy
from Dallas are the only men so far.
The meals are American and mighty
good after European food.
This morning up again early. Had
dropped anchor during the night off
Ravenna. In old Roman days this city
yas a port but the depositing of silt
together with the gradual rise of this
coa&t has gone on until the present
city is six miles inland. We were few
enough to all go In the yacht launch.
The river has low mud banks. I don't
think I can hardly describe what I
have seen today, very Old churches
built in the 5th and 6th centuries toy
Theoderic and Canslan time. They are
plain brick on the outside, not at all
alMaciive. Hie tiling they are n^lt-d
for is the Mosaics put in here at the
it Ms that painting was n lost art, 1 y
Greek workmen imported from the
East. The only really beautiful thinf
was the tomb of Placida, sister of the
Emperor Honorious, never heard' of
her before, but the tomb is a jewel
box, the lower part of yellow marble,
the whole upper part of the celling of
sparklinrr mosaics. Coming back we
met a whole fishing fleet with many
hued sails, from pale lemon to orango
and rose. It was living in a Dutch
painting. I forgot to say we lunched in
the house in which Byron lived when
lie was here persuing one of ills many
affinities and near by way the tomb of
Dante, also San Theodorics tomb. This
has -a dome carved out of a single
stone 30 feet in dlaimeter. Engineers
wonder how they ever got such a
stone in place.
Well' this is up to now, but mighty
scratchy. With love bo all.
Well, our picnic cn the 8th was a
great success. Several candidates en-
tertained the crowd by speaking. The
dinner was plentiful, enough for as
many more. Each and all seemed to
enjoy the day.

Mr. 11. C. Geddy, Esq., Mineóla, Tex.
Dear Sir:—l am informed that in
some of your public addresses in the
Interest of your candidacy for Con-
gress you have announced that 1 and
my friends in the Kaufman County
convention two years ago defeated
the Randall Resolution.
I want to state to you the facts, as
follows: 1 was in Palo rinto county,
not only on the date of the primary,
but on the dato of the convention, and
l was not a delegate to the county
convention nor to the state conven-
tion, the Kaufman county delegation,
headed by my then law parmer, Jed
C. Adams, voted for and supported the
Randall resolution, and these facts as
to the vote in the State convention are
known to Mr. J. T. Edwards, of
I dictate this letter to you so that
you may know the facts In the case,
and I presume that you do not want to
be In the attitude of misrepresenting
my position, and I retain a copy of this
letter, and should these statements
be further made by you, I shall see to
it that this letter, together with the
evidences of my jiosition, is given to
the entire press of the district so that
my position may be known to the vot-
ers of the district. Yours truly,
(Signed) JAIMES YOUNG.
Dr. J. H. Gambrell, editing the
Anti-Saloon League Department of
Home and State has the following to
say about Judge McCord's candidacy:
"Judge Felix J. iMoCord is a candidate
to succeed himself on the Court of
Criminal Appeals. He is indorsed by
the bars of the Seventh Judicial Dis-
trict where he served as judge four-
teen years and retired voluntarily. It
Is charged that he Is an anti-prohlbi-
tionlst and lacks equipment. The
writer was his pastor six years and
knows that both these charges are un-
true. Like all men, Jurge McCord has
his weaknesses, but they are not on
the points named. The writer is not
committed to his candidacy, nor that
of any opponent, for manifest reasons.
However, he believes that every can-
didate ought to be understood on his
merits, hence this Is written."
Gov. Harman has called on the
sheriff and mayor of the county and
city in which the lynching occurred
recently for full explanations. Tht-w
both say they did everything In their
power to prevent the killing of a man
who, as a detective killed another
man, while trying to put a "blind
tiger" out of business.

Mr. William Goodman is the pro-
prietor and founder of this remarka-
ble farm, and be Is, without doubt, a
genius in his line. What he don't
know about farming, fruit growing,
trucking, stock raiting, keeping a
placo in perfect order, would not
make much of a book. There is a
blacksmith shop, a plumbing, harness
and other kinds of shops where any
and all kinds of repairing for tho
farming implements is dono, and Mr.
Goodman Is the chief operator in each
of the /hops. There are barns, out
