BIT DUST FRIDAY
MRS. ISAAC GUEST PURSE GIVEN EIRE
Many hearts in Detroit were made
sad Sunday afternoon when It was
, made known that another good wom-
an and a pioneer citizen of the town
and county. Mrs. Isaac Guest, had
passed away at her home here.
Mrs. Guest had lingered for about
three weeks and at times it would
seem that she would possibly survive,
lint. ow!Vs to her advanced age she
could not withstand the ravages of
disease, and passed away at 4 o'clock.
The funeral service was conducted
fit the Detroit cemetery Monday aft-
ernoon by Rev. (J. Wright, assisted
by Rev. Brown of Valiant. Okla.. and
Rev. C. S. Wilder, and she was laid
to rest beside her husband, who pro-
ceeded her in death last August.
Mrs. Guest was born in Louisville,
Ky.. February 17. 1849, and before her
marriage was Miss Jennie Pearce J
Dick. She was married March 18. i
J S7u to Isaac Guest, and to this union
were born eight, children, fHve girls
and three boys. Five of the eight chil-
dren now survive her—Isaac Jr., T. P..
John and Misses Ruby and Pearl, all
l>eing with her when she died. She
nlso is survived by a brother and a
fdster, John Dick and Mrs. Ed Wilson
l>oth of whom live in Detroit.
In the passing away of Mrs. Guest
Detroit and Red River county lost an-
other of their best citizens, she be-
longing to one of fhe largest and most
prominent families In the county.
In respect to this lady and the fam-
ily, the pntlre business of Detroit was
closed for the funeral.—Detroit Herald

League Park Friday afternoon by a
score of 3to 2. Shivers opened til"
game like a hurricane, striking out

in the nine frames allowed only six
hits. He was credited with 12 strike-
outs and was faced by only 33 men.
The Boosters went down in order
with the exception of a single and a
hit batsman until the last of the fourth
inning, when after Chambers had
struck out and winters grounded out
to first. Wartham got on first on Ho-

Friday night at that place to discuss
the route to be chosen for the high-

were there and the Detroit municipal
band rendered a few numbers, which
helped liven up the meeting.
Representatives from each delega-

The $14 per capita apportionment will
be made by the Stale Board of Educa-

on the state school tax of 35 cents,

Nearly one million people, one-fifth
of the population of Texas, live In or
within commuting distance of the
state's "big five" cities, estimates by
the United States Department of Com-
merce showed in a recent report.
Actually within the corporate limits
of these cities, according to the esti-
mates, are 813,796 people, dividing
as follows: San Antonio, 198,069; Dal
of the cities have populous surburbs.
The total population of Texas at this
time is estimated to be 5,097,574. The
total state population and the popula-
tion of the five biggest cities are all
that have been announced to date.
Late in July estimates of population
of Texas cities between 10,000 and
100,000 will be announced.
The bureau estimates that since the
1'920 census was taken Uncle Sam
has gained 394.860 nephews and nieces

population of 4,702.714. compared with
the present estimate of 5,097,574.
Three Texas cities are not satisfied
with the 1925 estimates of population,
according lo the census bureau. These
three are Dallas. Houston and Fort
Worth, San Antonio, which Is sailing
serenely out In front In the estimates
has made no complaint and neither
has El Paso, which crossed the 100,-
000 threshold since the 1920 census.
Houston especially is displeased
with its figures. In 1924 no estimate
of Houston's population was made
because, it was said, the city. was
growing so fast that estimates were
without value. The estimate of 164.-
954 made this year, Houston asserts,
Is too small.
The census bureau, however, main-
tains that Its estimates for ail Texas
cities cannot be far off. Statistical
