A. .V M. APPHOPItl VI'ION
Austin, Tex., May 5.—Authorities
ot the A. k M. College are not at all
satisfied with the manner In which
the appropriation committee slushed
some of the appropriations. It Is
claimed that there was close on to
•800,000 cut out of the estimates
made by the college of needed appro-
priations. I r. W. B. Hlxscll. president
of the college; Dean Spence and sev-
eral members of the hoard of man-
agers, reached here last afternoon on
this subject. They will nppear before
the appropriation committees this
evening and try to convince the com-
mittees that these appropriations
should be replaced In the bill. They
will also confer with Governor Fer-
guson on the subject. The education-
al appropriation committees, allowed
the college a total appropriation of
|n02,4,1.*i for the next two fiscal years,
*t HS,2r.0 for the first, and $811,105
for the second year.
The appropriation committee cut
the amount asked for the extension
service of I lie college from $188,055
to $40,000 for the next two fiscal
years. In this connection It may be
said that Ho* governor Is not In en-
tire harmonx with this appropriation,
for lie declares that he falls to see
Jlisl how exactly the real tillers of the
soil are to lie benefited by this exten-
sion department; however, the com-
mittee allowed $10,000 for this pur-
pose. The committee cut out altn.

Washington, l>. May 6.—Rust
bulletin gave forecasts of disturbance
to cross continent May !) to IS, In-
clusive, warm Wave 8 to 12, cool wave
15 to 10. It will be noticed that we
give six days as the average time re-
quired for any weather change, or
weuther feature to pass across the
continent from east to west. We use
the word "about", because the tliue
required for these weather events to
cross the continent varies a little,
sometimes requiring seven and at
other times only five days. This six
day period has reference only to the
transcontinental disturbances. oc-
casionally tropical storms pass north-
eastward off the Atlantic coast and
these sometimes break up the trans-
continental storms, causing errors In
our forecasts for northeastern sec-
tions. Heretofore wo have not in-
cluded those tropical storms In our
forecasts, but, after a long study of
the subject and vel\v many experi-
ments, using the dally weather records
covering one hundred years, we are
about ready to include those tropical
storms In our forecasts, thereby great-
ly Improving them. This will put
Washington, It. C. uiyl the southeast-
ern states into the territory covered
by our forecasts. They have not here-
tofore been Included except Indirectly.
The storm wave described at the be -
ginning of this letter has been expect-
ed to Inuugrate a hot wave somewhat
similar to that of April I, 24 to so,
which was very successfully forecast-
ed. Tills May hot wave Is expected to
cause a drouth scare and cause a big
rise in oats on account of a drouth In
northwestern part of the outs belt.
The severe storms expected not fur
from May 8 have all the time been
located in the southern states and
have been expected to be Similar to
those that occurred In Texas, Oklaho-
ma, Roulsiunu, etc., and which were
almost perfectly forecasted In these
bulletins. But the storms near May
8 have not been expected to be so
Next disturbance will reach Pacific
coast about May IS, cross Pacific slope
by close of 14, great central valleys
15 to 17, eastern sections 18. Warm
wave will cross Pacific slope about
May 13, great central valleys 15, east-
ern sections 18. Cool wave will cross
Pacific slope about May 1 fi, great cen-
tral valleys 18, eastern sections 20.
This will bring a great change In
weather conditions Very hot weather
will he followed by very cold weather.
Severe storms are expected in south-
ern states but not so dangerous as
those near April 23. While these
storms are occurring In the southern
states a great fall In temperature Is
expected In flic middle northwest that
may bring frosts. We locate the rains
of this storm in the cotton states while
northwestern sections will got much
March 25 our calculations were
made for dangerous southern storms
and the forecast was published April
10. The storm wave was scheduled to
crow continent April 19 to 23 and we
said: "This will bring bad storms to
many sections and all should lie on the
alert. No voyages should he taken on
the waters during that week and plans
should he made for remaining near
home and safety. Heavy rains are ex-
pected In southern and eastern sec-
tions, in Mexico, Central America and

The city of McKlnney has been
lounged Into deep sorrow and grief
by the death of Judge J. M. Pearson
who breathed his last at 5 o'clock
Saturday morning at Ills home on
South Tennessee Street, after a linger
nig illness of about two years.
In 1903 Judge J. M. Pearson was
appointed Judge of the Fifty-ninth
Judicial district b> the late Oovarnor
I.anhum to till out the unexpired
term of Judge W. T. Beverly, deceas-
ed, and afterwards was threa times
elected to this high poslttoa by the
people of Collin and Grayson counties
which compose the Fifty-ninth Ju-
dicial district. He only served two
years of his lust term, being forced to
retire on account of fulling health
Hon. James Madison Pearson luis
bean a resident of the "Rone Star"
State since 1K75 and was known
throughout the southwest, both as a
private practitioner of the law and a
substantial member of the bench
Judge Pearson was a typical southern-
er by birth, training und education.
He was born In Tullupoosa County,
Alabama, September 4, mis, being u
son of James M. Sr., und Elisabeth
Ann (Brown) Peurson. on the pater-
nal side of the family was found pure
Kngllsh stock, the most Immediate an-
cestors of Judge Pearson being
Kngllsh (.Juukcrs and members of the
Willi im IVnti Colony, while on the
mother's side, the forefathers were
Scotch-Irish. The father was both a
lawyer ami southern planter, operat-
ing Ills estate by slave labor, und also

Judgi Pearson's oarl> education was
obtained In the schools of Tallupoosll
County, Alabama and afterwards he
became a pupil at the Rinory College
and still later attended the University
of Alubama, in which he pursued u
regular military course; but he wus
not permitted to complete his studies,
however, In this branch, as soon after
the outbreak of the Civil war be enllst-
cn in Company E, Thirtieth Alabama
Infantry regiment. He was soon pro-
moted from the ranks and commis-
sioned Second Rleuteiiaut In this com-
mand Ills active service was first In
Faster n Tennessee, under General
Klrby Smith, and afterwards he par-
ticipated In the Kentucky campaign
under General Itrugg, still lutcr taking
pdrt In the leading buttles fought In
the Mississippi ciimpuign While under
Urlgutllcr Gelierul Stephen G. Ree. He
wus cuptured at Vlcksburg, Muy 22,
I 8113, und was at once taken to John-
son's Island, near Sandusky, in Rak's
Erie, and there remained ill captivity
u ii: 11 near the close of the war—for a
period of nearly two years, returning
to the south lu Murch* 18<i.fi.
Soon after the war he studied law
under the tutorship of Senator James
Z. George, of Carroll County, Missis-
sippi, and was admitted to practice be-
fore the stute and federal courts. He
removed to St. Ijouls In 1871. There
he entered the law department of the
Washington University, and through a
more thorough course of the law, lie
wus graduated from that Institution
with the degree of It. R. In 1 873, and
at once resumed his practice In St.
Rouls. He remained thus engngod In
that city until 187fi when he became
a resident of MoKlnney, Collin Coun-
ty, Texas. Here he soon established a
substantial practice, and his Judicial
qualities were so thoroughly recog-
nised by both bench and bar, that he
was appointed as Judge of the Flfty-
nlnth Judicial district by Gov. S. W. T.
Run ha 111. He was three times elected
to the same office, the district com-
prising Collin and Grayson counties.
In many other ways he has been hon-
ored, having served the city of Mc-
Klnney as Mayor for ten years.
Judge Pearson's wife formerly Miss
Mary Belle Powell, sister of Yiincy
Powell of McKlnney, and was a native
of Monroe County, Alabama. To them
four children wore born: Resile, now
Mrs. B. C. Merrllt of McKlnney,
James Madison, who was killed at the
home In this city by an electric shock
five months ago, and Jim Hipp ond
Annie Bell, both of whom died at the
age of less than one year. His
household consists of two other
members by adoption,—Elisabeth and
Sullle, the children of his brother, Dr.
W. F. Pearson, deceased. The Judge
was also popular In fraternal orders,
being active in Masonry, Odd Fellow-
ship, and In the Benevolent and Pro-
tective Order of Elks. Tt Is perhaps
needless to add that he had lone been
a member of the order of United C'on-
federa'c Vet runs.

following: his wife', Mrs. J. M. Peur-
son, daughter, Mrs. B. C. Morrltt and
