TEE IS TyORKEVG hard;
Nothing new has developed In the
railroad situation the past week. The

fairly good success so far. They are
p till far short of the required bonus
Tfeut It is thought that by hard persis
tent work they will reach the amount
.and will bo enabled to notify Mr Jones
'within the next few days that they are
; ready to close up the contract. In the
: meantime it is absolutely necessary
lor every man who can possibly do so
to add his sum be it large or small
"to the amount already subscribed. A
"very generous spirit -was shown yes
terday when some of the subscribers
"to the fund feeling the necessity of
Buch action doubled their subscrip-
tion; others adding very materially
to what they at first Relieved' their
share of the amount Winters Enter-
prise. Notice of Receiver's Sale.

BROWNWOOD WILL SELL
NO MORE RED LIQUOR.
Will Hurt who has just been re-
leased by the sheriff from a five
months sentence in jail and on tho
road says he is a cured man so far as
the whiskey business is concerned.
"You might as well tell 'em that I
have taken the Keely" said Hurt "for
I am out of jail now and likewise out
of tho whiskey business I was en-
gaged in selling the stuff but a few
weeks and have served a five months
sentence and I want to tell you that
is a mighty long time. I have no kick
coming about the wasted time because
I am one of those fellows who never
grieves over split milk but I have
had my Bhare and am not' wanting any
more notoriety" Hurt says he Is go-
ing to work and that he is absolutely
through with booze selling. Brown-

of the business section..

TRAIN DISPATCHER PULLMl
OFF A BADOB FIGHT.
Trainmaster Mqshcr of tho Boston
and Maino ral'-oad knows more today
nbout Tdxas wild' game than he ever
knew before. Ills education was Com-'
pleted at Lako Erto Wednesday night
when ho attonded a badger fight given
by tho local train dispatchers In honor
of tho delegates to tho convention' now
In session here.
Previous to the fight there was a
barbecuo at which Gcorgo Johnson
Presided as master of ceremonies. It
was a good barbecue and the 300
guests enjoyed it hut when tho cigars
wore passed the men In tho crowd be-
gan to get restless. Stories werotold
of thrilling hunts In Texas for pan
thers; bobcats bears and lobo wolves
until Mr. Moshor got Interested and
told a few stories about moose hunt-
ing in Mnlnd. Beforo ho know it an
exciting discussion arose as to what
was tho Hvolicst kind of Bport to be
found anywhoro in tho United States
and the Tcxnns present all declared a
badger fight held the paliti.
Mr. Mosher waB Incredulous but po-
plltoly Inquiring so tho character of
the fight was explnlncd to him.- Sud-
denly It was disclosed that Dispatch-
ers Benson and Ueckwith of Fort
Worth had a couplq of dogs along with
them and that somebody had secured
a badger. Mr. Mosher asked If badger
fighting wasn't cruel but he was told
that tho badger really enjoyed It and
the dogs were never hurt Then every-
body demanded a badger fight and al-
most as suddenly commenced betting
on the result.
Mr. Mosher is a New Englander and
doesn't bet because It Is wicked. When
a Texan flnuntlngly shook a roll of
bills in the face of a Kentucklan and
declared that George Benson's1 dog
could lick a badger alone with one
fore-foot tied behind Its left ear he
was shocked. By that time the crowd
had drifted to the pavilion where the
badger was caged and the excitement
was growing' every minute. One of
tho cooler dispatchers present warned
Mr. Mosher that if something didn't
happen soon there might be bloodshed
also declaring .that it was up to him
to preserve order and see that the
fight was on the square.
So Mr. Mosherv mounted a box and
made a Charles Warren Fairbanks'
address assuring everybody that even
though he knew nothing about badg-
"She" will know that
YOU "know 'if you buy
that perfume for her here.
For "she" probably comes
here for her favorite kind
and ' she1' knows:

or fights he would se everybody got
a square deal. He made a touching
appeal to the dispatchers not. to let
their fcellngd ovorcomo tholr judgment
and several mon In tho crowd shed
When things quieted down Mr. Mosh
or was handed tho ropo leading to the
door of tile badger's cage. Ho pulled
and therd tumbled out a fine largo
Btrlpod specimen. About tho same
tlmo even beforo tho dogs had stopped
barking ho fled and at 2 6'clock Thurs
day morning was found under tho
bridge over Sycamore creok just east
of town. ' i
Almost as much fun was furnished
tho crowd which laughed at Mr. Mosh-
er'd plight by Dispatcher Korshelmer
of Lexington Ky. who Insisted that
tho ladles at tho barbecuo ought to seo
tho fight too Ho invited no less than
twenty-flvo to accompany him but
they all declined on tho plea that
fighting Is cruel. Fort Worth Tele-
