Cuum'(| Considerable Interest at the
Katy lh*pcit This Morning.
A big box with heavy wire netting
sides and covered with canvas was
the center of attraction at the Katv
depot this morning until the Mc-
Kinney train pulled out.
In one compartment of the box
was a full grown black eagle who sat
on his perch and stared majestically
at the gaping throng of human be-
ings. He was a noble looking bird
and paid little attention to the peo-
ple who raised the canvas to look
at his majesty.
In the other side of the box was
quite a contrast. A big, fierce-look-
ing wildcat occupied that compart-
ment. His low, threatening growls
as the canvas was raised to view him
made one glad he was not free. His
fierce teeth and unsheathed claws
were a menace that was heeded
and the canvas covering was quick-
ly lowered to hide him from obser-
The outfit came from Grand Sa-
line and was directed to W. J. Sell-
ers at Farmersvllle.
To add to the menagerie in the
express car there was a hog in a box
and some ciates of chickens.—

Judge Bell had withdrawn hlB
name from the convention and asked
that the nomination of Col, Camp-
bell be made unanimous, the chair-
man put the motion, which was re-
ceived by the delegates by one
grand chorus of ayes, the settings
being furnished by the enthusiastic
applause of the people as they toss-
ed their hats and coat" toward the
celling of the hqll and waved their
fans and handkerchiefs. The band \
played "The Campbells Are Com-

jig in the central aisle.
There were hundreds of calls for
"Campbell," which were persistent
until he appeared upon the ros-
trum. having gained entrance from
the door facing the delegates and
leading directly upon the platform.
He was escorted to the speaker's
stand by Mr. Colquitt and Murrell

TRIBUTE TO Jl'IKJE BROWN. I
Eulogy on Distinguished Jurist by
In the course of Senator Bailey'*
now ramous speech before th • State
Democratic convention in Dallas, he
paid a high tribute to Judge Thorn-
as J. Brown of the Texas Supreme
Court, a former citizen of M< Kinney
and for many years a rvHlutn* of
our sister city, Sherman.
Senator Bailey's reference to
Judge Brown, as report*'I l:i the
Dallas News, was as follows:
There is in Austin today, In the
quiet of the courtroom, in earnest
consultation with Is brother Judges,
there lives a man to whom Texas
owes a debt of gratitude, a man
whom she never can pay for Ills
work In that great conflict. 1 was
one of the early volunteers, and I
well remember that I received more
encouragement and counsel from
him than from any other man—Hon.
Thomas J. Brown. (Great applause.)

AN AGREE tliLE SURPRISE.
State Fair Management Makes Many
Clianges and Improvements.
Dallas, Texas, Aug. .6.—The im-
provements which are being made at
the State Fair grounds will be an
agreeable surprise to visitors this
fall. An almost complete change
has been made in the pi an of the
park, in accordance with a design
prepared by Geo. E. Kessler, the
landscape architect who drew the
plans for the world's fair grounds
at St. Lotiis. Nearly all the old
buildings have been pulled down
and new ones substituted for them
on other sites, and many new ones
have been added to the original
number. The space used for exhib-
its has also been readjusted and ex-
tended. Amusement row will be lo-
cated east of the race track grand
stand, on ground heretofore occupi-
ed by thirteen of the race-horse
barns. These barns have been plac-
ed in the vicinity of the livestock de-
partment. The new poultry build-
ing and the horticultural building
cover much of the space between the
livestock department and Exposition
Hall, so that the fair thl* year will
extend all the way round the race-
track. The demand for space ex-
hibits and for concessions has been
so much greater than ever before
that there will be no vacant spaces
on the ground at the 1906 fair. The
city has put forth every effort to
mak the park the most beautiful
spot In Texas, and the general ver-
dict Is that those efforts have been
