GRUFF JUDGE ROY BEAN SENTENCES
JOHN PARKS TO WORK AT STOVALL'S
The Instantaneous Diagnosis
By IRVIN S. COBB
T^HE traveling man had occasion to pass through the colored com-
partment of the train on his way to the baggage car, where he
wished to open one of his trunks. He took note of a large coal black
person who slept audibly, with his lolled back against the seat, his
mouth agape and his tongue hanging down on his chest.
When he returned from the baggage car he held in his hand a five
grain quinine capsule, with its top removed. Along the furry surface
of that pendant tongue he gently sifted the crystals of quinine.
Presently a fly lit on the nose of the slumbering one, and he sucke l
his tongue hick inside of his mouth. Instantly he was wide awake. He
spat violently, then arose with a look of deep concern on his face and
headed for the back platform.
At the door, he encountered the traveling man. Mister, he de-
manded anxiously, does you know ef (ley's a doctor on dis yere train .
"Who needs'a doctor?" countered the white man.
"I does, that's who."
"Are you sick?" .... j T i
"I shore is. And whut's more I knows whut ails me, and I knows
I needs to git to a doctor right away. Boss, my gall's busied.

A decision that sentenced John
Parks, local cleaning and press-
ing man, to serve an evening
working in F. M. Stovall's place
Saturday was handed down by
Judge Roy Bean, "Law West of
the Pecos," at the weekly noon-
day luncheon of the Kiwanis
club here Friday.
He was charged with misrep-
resentation of a fish story.
Judge Bean, a rustic old chap
who established himself out west
when the Southern Pacific was
crossing the continent in the 60's,
still lives today in the person of j
Ross Hoyt, who lives behind a
mustache similar to the one worn
by the famous old judge.
This Judge Bean presides over
the court at the Texas Centenn-
ial exposition. He is now on a
two-week leave from that high
court while he advertises the
Centennial over the state.
He went from here to Nacog-
Telling peculiar and humorous
incidents concerning his reign on
I the throne at the "Law West of
(the Pecos,"' the judge proved to
j be «a very interesting character,
j He told of having sentenced Gov-
' ernor Allred to death, but says
' he supposes the "gov" used his
pardoning powers because he hai-
n't seen an account of the electro-
cution in the papers.
When Amelia Earhart, the avi-
atrix, came to town, he tried her
on the charge of having broken
world records and of crossing the
Atlantic without a change of
underwear. She plead "not guil-
ty" and her plea was not accepted
as usual in Judge Bean's court.
Telling about the great Texas
Centennial, Mr. Hoyt described
the various exhibits that are free
at the fair, saying that one can
spend two good days looking over
the free exhibitions. He told of
i the swanky eating places and the
' hamburger joints, the reasonably
priced lodging houses, and the
Cavalcade, declared by Robert L.
Ripley to be the finest of its kind
ever produced. His description
of the $25,000,000 world fair was
interesting and accurate.
The judge deputized Mayor E.
R. Gregg and President W. H.
Hanna of the Kiwanis Club, at
the meeting, later making E. S.
Erwin, Jr., and Elton L. Miller
constables in his court, "the Law
West of the Pecos."
