COL SC01T HERE SUFFUCATED
FROM PHILIPPINESj IN CORN BIN
The sto:> of the sensational aban
domnent in broad daylight, of a twe
months old baby bo> bj a couple at
Frisco, as was related i:i ibis puper
created much Interest all over the
1 It;, ar.'i soon after the paper was is-
sued Commissi >ner W. M. Burgess
wli took charge of the Infant until
u home could be found for It, re-
tM'el ! e'.'e:*a! applications for the
child. It. was finally decided Friday
morning, instead of sending tht
babe to Fort Worth, as was at first
Intended, to turn It over to Mr. and
Mrs. R. C. Knott of this city who
will raise the child. Both Mr. mid
Mr Knott were very anxious to take
'' <• infant and there Is no doubt that
:t has se-iired a good home and will
be well taken care of.

♦1:1.2 ' J'.tnSor S-'tvt'or from Tex-
as, and the name is not Inappropri-
ate in vi -w of th« fact that both the

having a strenuous titn* latt l>
Identity of Couple.
The names of the coupl

las. later moving to the Frisco com-
nunit.\. It is stated that his wife
had it sided I11 that community for
several years preceding her mar-
\ ('Mi-iou* Sit tuition.
A curious lenai situation is re-
vealed by this sensational abandon-
ment. It is said that the couple who
left the child can not be brought
to justice under the law for the rea-
son that there is no law covering
t such a case. The child was not. In
harmed iu any way. the husbaud de-
nies its parentage and it is the opin-
ion of tlie lawyers of the city that 110
punishment could be legally incced
out for its abandonment and 11011-
support. For thin reason the sheriff's
department is stopped from captur-
ing the parties and bringing them
back to answer for what is a great
moral but not legal crime.
In the meantime the baby which
Is the center of all the interest and
>.\citement continues to smile and
coo, all unmindful of this sad
drama In real life In which he has
played the leading part.

There is no better index of the
growth arid prosperity of a town
than its postoffW receipts. Other
statistics are frequently confusing,
and sometimes misleading, but the
postoffice receipts can always be re-
lied upon. Judged by this .standard
M< Kinney has made more rapid
progress during the past year than
111 vears past, as is shown by the fol-
lowing statistics concerning the re-
ceipts at the McKinney postoffice
for the past four years, furnished
this pape- by Assistant Postmaster
Oscar Smith, by request:
1 90 ♦
Thus it will be seen that while
there h:.s all along been a gradual
1 tn rease each year over the preced-
ing there vvns a big jump for 1906,
over 190!>, the Increase amounting
t<> nearly I'i.OOO. This speaks loud-
er than any words concerning the
progress of McKinney and should
be a source of gratification to ev-
ery citizen of the town and county.
Especially should it be of interest at
this time when a bill Is now pendng
in Congress providing for tbe erect*
, ion of a public building in McKin-
ney, and such a showing as is made
by the McKinney postoffice greatly
increase!- the chances for securing
Public buildings have recently
been secured by Congressman Kan-
deli for Sherman, Denlson and
Greenville, and In none of these
has the per cent of increase in the
post office receipts been as great as
In the McKinney office. Collin
county is the 1 ichest agricultural
count\ in the United States, the per
capita wealth in McKinney is not
exceeded by any town anywhere and
the citizenship annually pout-a
thousands of dollars into the Feder-
al treasury: therefore a liberal ap-
propriation for a public building
here would only be right and prop-
er. With the proper co-operation of
the people of McKinney a first-class
public building for this city c;;n be
