Mr. J. I. Rhodes, of the coun-
try southeast of town, who has
been bothered with appendicitis
for several months, was operated
upon in the sanitarium at Paris
last Friday. The first day con-
siderable uneasiness was express-
ed over his condition, but later
reports are to the effect that he is
o-etting on nicely.
Last Saturday while in the city
Mrs. Robert Martin, of the coun-
try, gave her two children coal oil
to drink, thinking it was water.
She was in one of the grocery
stores and mistook the coal oil
receptacle for a drinking fountain.
Fortunately the children reached
a doctor in a few minutes and
were relieved, otherwise the re-
sults might have been disastrous.

removed her stock of millinery

all the newest of the new styles
in headwear, and that her prices
will be satisfactory to all.

Miss May Belle Smith, daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. R. B. Smith,
formerly of this city, but now of
Fort Worth, was operated on for
appendicitis Monday. The first
reports which came concerning
her condition were very unfavor-
able, but Wednesday the good
news came that she was improv-
ing and that prospects were good
for a speedy recovery.—[Later-
Yesterday morning a telephone
message stated that Miss Smith

Nervous weakness or palpitation of
the heart indicates disorder in the
stomach and indigestion. Prickly Ash
Bitters is a wonderful remedy in such
cases. It cleanses, strengthens and
regulates the stomach, liver and bow-

symptoms and builds up a strong and
vigorous body.—Black & Little,special
A gentleman who lives near
Telephone was in the city Tues-
day and stated that it was feared
Miss Etta Hawkins,of Telephone,
who was injured in a runaway ac-
cident two weeks ago, could not
recover. She and her mother
and sister were returning home
from a funeral when the horse
took fright and ran away. Miss
Etta Hawkins wasjthrown again8t
a tree. Her mother and sister
were also painfully injured.
The party of fishermen which
recently returned from Horse-
shoe lake made a great catch.
Thqy did not, like most fisher-
men, depend upon their state-
ments to convince their friends of
their success, but returned with
the fish, which spoke much loud-
er than idle words. One very in-
teresting catch was made by Mr.
Meeks Ware. It was not a fish,
but a shot gun of the type used
thirty years ago. There are no
names on the gun to show its
ownership but Mr. Ware is of the
opinion that it belongs to som§
murderer, who threw it in the
lake to hide hia crime. Thi8 view
is strengthened by the fact that
a few days since a farmer who
lived not far from the lake plow
ed up a skeleton. Mr. Ware con-
tends that that the murderer kill
ed his man, buried him in a field
and then threw his gun into the
For a Cleaner City.
In obedience to a resolution passed
by the City Council I hereby designate
Monday, March 21st, as "Clean-Up"
Bay. The city will remove all inde-
structible rubbish, such as tin cans,
scrap tin, etc., where the owners" or
occupants of premises will put such
rubbish in boxes, barrels or sacks, or
pile it where it can be easily reached
with the wagons. All rubbish that
can be is expected to be burned. The
wagons will start early Monday morn-
ing, March 21st, and everyone is urged
to begin the work of gathering up his
rubbish in time to have it ready when
the wagon calls for it, otherwise you
will be missed. We have a reputation
for a pretty and clean town; now, in
order to sustain this reputation, let ev-
ery citizen do his duty and lend a
helping hand to this necessary and
progressive effort toward a cleaner
and more healthful town. All are cau-
tioned against allowing children to
burn trash; for the safety of person
and property men should superintend
the burning of the rubbish.

Miss Ava Willson received her
commission yesterday as census
enumerator for Wards No. 1 and
2. If the other enumerators have
been appointed we failed to get
the names. - The work of taking
the census will begin April 15.
Mr. W. A. Lee, farmer, school
teacher, hog raiser and expert
fisherman, of near Lamasco, paid
the Signal an appreciated call
Saturday. Mr. Lee ia one of the
men the high price of living is
not worrying, and the reason is
that he's a seller, not a buyer.
He informed us that he had a
surplus of hogs last year and now
has about forty hams for market.
He marketed a few Saturday and
they netted him a few cents more
than §4 each.
Mr. J. P. King, who returned
from Austin last Friday after at-
tending the sessions of the Grand
Lodge of Odd Fellows, reports
the most enthusiastic meeting ot'
Odd Fellows ever held in the
state. About 3,000 delegates
were in attendance. During the
meeting the degrees of Odd Fel-
lowship were conferred upon Gov.
Campbell, Attorney General
Lightfoot and ex-Attorney Gen-
eral Davidson. Mr. King said
he found Prof. F. M. Bralley one
of the busiest and most popular
men in Austin.

Dr. R. C. McDonald left Wed-
nesday for Bells, Tennessee. He
will spend about ten days with
relatives there and then accept
service with the medical corps of
the United States army, a posi-
tion to which he was appointed
Borne weeks since. The doctor
made many friends in Honey
Grove, who regret that he is not
to continue with us, butmll re-
joice over his good fortune in se-
curing the appointment. He did
not know when he left Honey
Grove to what post hs will be as-
More ladies visited the stores
of Honey Grove Tuesday than on
any day for many months and
this is not surprising since it was
opening day. As men gather
around spread - eagle orators
when a warm political campaign
is on, yea, even as ants assem-
ble round the bung-hole of a
molasses barrel in the summer,
even so do the fair creatures
gather when new headwear
is on display. The three millin
ery emporiums of the city made
beautiful showings Tuesday of
the newest styles of hats. A man
never knows much about hats,
and it would be easy enough for
a saleslady to palm off a last
year's hand-me-oown on a genus
homo for a fashionable Gaines
borough hat, but the ladies know,
and they tell us that this season's
hats are "just lovely." We take
the word of the feminine judges
without question, and here give
expression to the hope that every
woman and girl in the country
will soon be canopied with a
headpiece i n perfect htirmony
with her complexion and becomr
ing to her particular type of
W. F. GRAVES, Agent,
Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot reach the
diseased portion of the ear Thei'fe is only one
way to cure deafness, and that is by constitu-
tional remedies. Deafness is caused by an in-
flamed condition of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube When this tube is inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hear-
ing, and when it is entirely closed, deafness is
the result, and unless the inflammation can be
taken out and this tube restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed forever;
nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condition of
the mucous surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for any case1
of Deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be
cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for circu-
lars, free. F. J. CHENEY & CO..

Piano Tuning and to Piano Owners.
Mr. Mack Stauffer states that
he does not sell his talent for com-
mercial purposes, that he has
more than once refused positions
offered by Dallas Music houses,
that the wages offered and paid to
tuners by them are very low and
measly. That being one of the
founders of an organization,which
haa more than 1000 members and
is still growing, and that when a
man of genius like Paul G. Meh-
lin, of New York City, and Pres-
ident of the piano manufacturers
association indorse one of the
founders of this organization in
"music trades" what is the use
to worry over that which is nuga-
tory. He will be glad to serve
his regular customers on hia next

New Trial Re.used.
A motion for a new trial in the
case of the state vs. Robert Mor-
timore, convicted of embezzle-
ment last week and given a aen-
tence of two yeara in the peniten-
tiary, was argued before Judge
Denton last Friday. The motion
was overruled and notice of ap-
peal was given. Mortimore for-
merly resided in Bonham but is
at present a resident of Green-
ville. While in Bonham he was
very popular in social circles.

day on account of the closing ser-
