week at his home in Kaufman,
was the first district Judge of the
district embracing Collin county,
who was elected under the new
constitution adopted in 1876, but
owing to conflicting terms of
court in the various counties of
his district, he never had an op-
portunity of presiding over a
court at McKinney.

Chambersville, Sept. 28—Leav-
ing McKinney last Thursday
morning, noon found me at
Weston where, after attending to
needs of horse and eelf, 1 pro-
ceeded t j look after the interests
of The Democrat whioh is m auch
high favor with the masses
Wagons are kept busy hauling
in the splendid orop of corn, and
the fields are white with cotton.
but as the yield will be light in
this section it is only a matter of
a few weeks until the "fleecy
staple" will be no more.
Weston is being held down
these days by such old stand-bys
as uncles "Tip" Smith, Jimmy
Carnth and Alvin Patterson.
The above are pioneer citusena.
Rev J W Foster has just closed
bis first year's pastorate of the
Baptist fchurch there and here
follows the information he gave
me: When he took charge one
year seo the church was in a
state of confusion, but now at the
cloae of bis year's labor he points
with pride to a united church,
peace reigns, and fifty additions;
a pastor For half time will likely
be called for another year. That
Brother Foster is a sccessful pas-
tor, it is only necessary to sav
that he came to Collin county
three years ago and during that
tune nearly four hundred have
been added to his churches, 113
being received this year.
As usual while in that vicinity
I spent a night with uncle Jimmy
Caruth who is perhaps the cham-
pion corn raiser of North Texas.
White Keystone is his favorite
variety and he has raised it for
about thirty years and always
with the best results, easily cap-
turing the premium over compet-
itors where ever shown. On land
that has been cultivated fifty
ears the yield will be nearly sixty
usbels, while on comparatively
new laud he will gather about
seventy-five bushels per acre.
Tho writer has seen corn that
grew on the best lands of Tennes-
see, Texas and Louisiana, but
none that would compare in yield
and size of ears to this. Sixty
selected ears will shell out a
bustiel while sixty-five will be an
average. Samples of this mam-
moth corn can be seen at the of-
fice of The Democrat and Daily
T J Hicks living a couple of
miles east of W etston has a family
of eight children whose christian
names begin with the letter "0"

Elder J A Webb of the Primi-
tive Baptists, preached here yes-
terday morning. Sorry that cir-
cumstances were such that 1 did
not hear him. Albert tried to
master the science of vocal music
some years ago while the writer
had charge ot a class at Altoga.

o'clock yesterday evening and

A purgative Pleasure
If you overtook DeWitt's Lit-
tle Eariy Risers for biliousness or
constipution you know what a
purgative pleasure is. These fa-
mous little pills cleanse the live-
and rid the system of all '.'ite
without producing unpleasant ef-
fects. They do not grpe, sicken
or weaken, but give tone and
strength to the tissues and organs
involved. W II. Howell of llous
ton, Tex., says: "No better pill
can be used than Little Larlv Ri-
sers for constipation, sick head-
ache, etc." Sold by City Drug

THE FAilOUS KlflBALL CASE.
Decision of the Late President
Mckinley and President Diaz.
The decifion of these promi-
nent jurists accord with Chief
Justice Fuller of the Supreme
court and John Philip Sousa,
Lillian Nordica Dame, Etna
Karnes. Ferdinand DeLucia, Ada-
liuaPatti, Emil Liebling and 100
other famous musiciaus in plac-
ing the Kimball piano above all
other pianos. Also the judges at
the Columbian Exposition gave to
the Kimhall the honor of first
prize for its supremacy over all
other pianos of the world.
A dupli ate of the Kimball
piano bought by the late Pres.
McKinley and the one now own-
ed by Pres. Diaz of Mexico, is
now at my store. We have pho-
tographs of more than 100 of the
foremost musiciant of the world
to give to friends of the store.
You only need to call for them.
Yt|u will find that all these mu-
sicians recommend the Kimball.
The Chicago conservatory of
music purchased 50 Kimball
pianos recently and there are t>8
other musical colleges using it
In short the Kimball piano
stands so high in the musical
world that any one who speaks
other than in complimentary
terms of them only betray their
ignorance to the inteligent.
Wo now occupy two buildings
and have a large stock of Kim-
balls to show you together with a
selfplaymg Kimball. Also have
a tine li.;e of everything known
in the music line. Wo believe in
keeping the best goods that
money can buy. Call and look
through the stock, hear the play-
er and get tree copy of sheet
music and photographs of 100
famous musicians free.
J. T. Couch,
Cheap Kates to the Panhandle
For the purpose of enlarging
the public's knowledge of the
true conditions holding in North-
west Texa* (The Panhandle)
"The Denver Road" has put in
effect round-trip party home-
seekers rates to points along its
line. These rates are upon a ba-
sis of one faro for the ro-ind trip
for parlies of fiv« or more per-
sons traveling together on one
ticket, and carry the privilege of
stop-overs at pleasure at all
points north of and including
Vernon, Texas; passengers being
allowed a limit of 30 days in
which to return. In view of the
fact that the Panhandle is enjoy-
ing the most rapid growth of any
section of Texas, for which there
is ample reason, this move upon
the part of "The Denver Road"
is a wise one and will doubtless
result in the splendid agricultu-
ral and business opportunities of
that section becoming better
known and appreciated within a
very short period of time. This
section of Texas abt unds in re-
sources and the land, being still
available at verv low prices, is
now being rapidly taken up.
