day's paper we told of four young men
of Farmersville answering lhe cull,
two ul Friaeo, und from nearly every
town in the county one or more young
men liuvc announced their Intention
lo "g i forth anil preach." lint one of
the most note-worthy of these lute ad-

Seminary, al Fort Worth. The lltle
to this story should be "From I'ool

story as told In the Wylle Rustler, of
Stiuiluy morning, according to uu-
nouncemenl, Grudy Ho.vd prcuchoil at
the First Baptist church. Hi'also fill
ed the pulpit ul night.
Everybody In this community lias
known Grudy Boyd from his ehlld-
hood, und all were more than anxious
to lieur him and give him a word of
encouragement, and lo shake his hand
They were ull glad that he hud been
rescued from sin, and even those who
do not openly profess a hope went out
to hear him und enjoyed bis sermons,
which were brimming with the power
and the love of Jesus Christ for the
world, and the results und power of
were his fourth and fifth ser-
mons, ami all agreed Hint he spoke
well for oiii- so young In lhe cause. Hi-
did not seem abashed nor did he lack
for words, although of course Ills ills
course was not so deep as one ground
ed In the faith for years. Hut his ser-
mon wus an uilinonltloti that all would
do well lo follow.
The church was filled to lis capa-
city ul boih meidlngs. His purcnts,
grand parents, uncles and aunts all be-
ing in the audience. This would om-
burruss most young men, but ho seem-
ed so intent on Ills work for the Mas

Mrs. W. I. Boyd. He Is about 24 years
old. and bus been running a pool hall

place in Oklahoma. Ho closed up the
pool hull and left for Fort Worth to
attend the Southwestern Baptist Theo-
While here he spent his lime with
his old friends and associates, talking
to them of their souls' Interest. He
told us that four persons hod confess-

Johnson of lliis clt\ He was about
L'J veal's of age. lie Worked at Bluo
Ridge last week on a brick bulhllllg
under course of construction there
lie was a member of the W. o. W.
and of the Bricklayers' Fnlon.
Was f'harllc Johnson murdered on
a freight train early Monday morn-
ing coming out or Dallas?
Some developments coming toi
light seem to Indicate thut ho ulay
have mel foul piny.
II Is slated that Johnson and
others from McKlnney failed t.i •
catch the Inst Interiirhau car out Of
Soullus Sunday night. It Is also stat-
ed that Johnson was known to have
boarded a northbound H. & T. C.
freight trnlu out of Dallus, and that,
when lust seen hud on a pair of mw
shoes, and hut, when last seen In
Dallus. When lie wus found early
Moniluy morning on the Houston A
Texas Central tracks at Buah Stop,
about r> miles south from thla elty,
that ho had on neither lint nor ahoeM,
II Is claimed, however that hla hat
and shoes were found in a box car In
the Denison yards.
There have been many theories ad-
vanced as lo the probable cnuso of
Ills death. one Is Hint Johnson
boarded tho freight, Intending to
come to McKlnney, und aftor lying
down In the box car divested him-
self of his hut and shoes. That ho
was either murdered, or thrown from
the box enr—which ho was riding,
and that a. northbound freight killed
him, because it has been learned that
passengers oil the- northbound pas-
senger (ruin, which passed over hla
body, was cold anil stiff In death
when picked lip.
By some It Is slated that he, at
limes, walked in his sleep. If thla
theory Is good, he might have gotten
up in his sleep, walked to the open
door lu tlie box cur aad fulling under
tlie wheels grinding htm to death.
II Is said that dectectlves are work-
ing on the ciise In Dallus. So far, no
decision has been rendered by Justlc®
Beverly, who held the inquest.
The exact way and tlmo Cliarllo
met his untimely death will probably
never be known. ,
