Items of Interest from
Record and Chronicle.
At Argyle, eight miles south
of Denton, late Tuesday after-
noon the seed cotton house of
the Argyle gin, owned by the
Pilot Point Cotton Oil mill, was
burned, together with seven
bales of cotton, five inside the
house loose and two bales of
ginned cotton outside. That the
fire came very near being a dis-
astrous one is shown by the fact
that thirty or forty bales more
caught, but were extinguished
before they were damaged much.
Two hundred and fifty bales were
in the gin yard at the time and
had not the first bales been extin-
guished all would have been
more or less damaged.
The fire caught in the top of
the house from some unknown
Walter Watson's Slayer
The negro Fritz, the slayer uf
Walter Watson at Muskogee re-
cently, was put on trial yester-
day morning. One hour and
fifty-five minutes were required
to select the jury, none of whom
are citizens of Muskogee.
County attorney Owen began1
the presentation of the case to
the jury at 11 o'clock. He de-
voted about 10 minutes to telling
what the state expected to prove.
He said the tell-tale evidence
consisted of the watch, chain
and pocket book which belonged
to Watson, together with the
pawn ticket for Watson's watch,
all of which were found in the
pocket of Fritz when arrested,
would be presented to the jury
at the proper time, In addition
to this the bloody pants found in
the room of Fritz after the arrest,
which would be identified as the
pants which Fritz had on when
he killed Watson, would be intro-
duced as evidence. Witnesses
would swear, he said, they saw
Watson going in the direction of
the spot where the tragedy oc-
curred and later they saw Fritz
coming from the direction at
which the fatal blows were
struck. Two witnesses were ex-
amined in the morning and then
court adjourned for dinner re-
suming the testimony of the
negro woman Thelma Morgan in
the afternoon. An effort will be
made to close the case by night
but with the state's twenty
witnesses it is doubtful!.
