will be most satisfactory.

Loafers nnd dudes who lot' >r

their disgusting tactics, so says
Police Chief Maddox of Fort Worth.
The ..ead of the police depart-
ment declares that these loafers
"Johnnies" block the sidewalks In
some places In Main street of after-
noons aud by their staring and side-
remarks make It most disagreeable
for ladles and young girls passing
along. This condition appllee es-
pecially to the territory between
Third and Ninth streets and as far
down as Fifteenth.
"The women and children of Fort
Worth shall be protected from these
curbstone flirts if 1 have to go out
and make arrests myself," asserted
Chief Maddox. "They have been
carrying on this unrefined practice
quite long enough and 1 intend to
end It right now. My men will have
orders within the next day to ar-
rest every man caught loafing not
only on Main street, but all over
town. These summer Idlers who
make It n business to make eyes at
every woman who passes might as
well take to the sun-baked bean
poles, for they've had ti.elr time.
They must go."

good many people here from Collin

my son and his wife drove to the

he was expecting from Coleman.
After they left me I got down my
son's old shot gun and went out to
see what 1 could devour, 1 had not
goue far until I found doves by the
hundred feeding around a millet
stack. There were other things
about the millet (stack but as doves
were what I was looking for 1 fail-
ed to see anything else so I open-
ed fire on the birds, the gun kicked
nie over backward und wnen I got
straight and the smoke cleared

not know how hard it would be for
a preacher to throw away a chick-

decided I would take his hide off
Well, I finally succeeded in dressing
him. I do not know how old he Is
but he must have been here long
before my son came here eleven
years ago. I have .im on boiling

are alright; they have not come
