Saturday morning about 3:30
some one attempted to break into
W. T. Hightower's residence. Mrs.
Hightower's sister, Miss Clara
Herz and Miss Mayme Lyday were
occupying the room which the bur-
glar attempted to enter, through
the window. They awoke before he-
got into the room, raised an alarm
and frightened him away. Satur-
day morning Walter Fields, a negro
18 years of age, was arrested on the
description given by the young
ladies. He was taken to Mr. High-
tower's residence and as rain had
fallen the day before the tracks of
the burglar were plain in the soft
earth in the yard. Field's feet fit
the tracks; both of the young lad-
ies declared their belief that the
right man had been caught and
Walter Fieldr is in jale waiting
the grand jury.

A Drummer's Woes.
Last week a young drummer
came to the city and brought as.
his principal stock in trade a large
amount of gab, which he proceed-
ed to distribute promiscuously and
which finally caused him a good
deal of trouble.
The young man possessed the
features of an Israelite. He wore
good clothes and seemed to nurse
the idea that he was a born masher
—a regular Don Juan. He had
been in town but a short time when
he began to ogle the ladies in a
very bold manner, and in conver-
sation with some of the boys boast-
ed long and loud of his prowess
among the fair sex.
Right then and there he was
blazing out the road for a race
which no man fails to make who
comes to Honey Grove and makes
remarks derogatory to ladies. He
was soon invited to visit the ''pa-
villion," out a little ways from
town where there wan music and
dancing and pretty girls galore,and
where strangers were always wel-
comed by the fare damsels in a
most affectionate manner. Of course
he accepted—it was the very place
he was hunting—and his heart
beat like a kettie drum in joyful
anticipation of the coming event.
The rest is known. About 10:00
Saturday night a heavy dust was
raised from the stony road that
leads from the square to the ceme-
tery, and by the soft light of the
stars an object could seen moving
toward the city at a rate that would
do credit to electricity itself, while
in Ihe background a heavy cannon-
ade wa» taking place. In less
time than it takes to telrit the
ject fell in the arms of one of our
citizens near the square, almost
lifeless from exhaustion, telling
in feeble accents of how his com-
panions had been murdered. Kind-
hearted men carried the fellow to
his hotel arid after' administering
stimulants succeeded in bringing
him back to life. Next morning
the drummer boarded the first train
and it is not likely that his pretty
face or handsome shape will ever
again be exposed to view in Hon-
Sunday moaning little Clarance
the two-year-old babe of Mr. and
Mrs. J. T. Parker died after a long
illness and was laid to rest in Oak-
wood Cemetery Sunday evening.
We tender sympathy to the parents
in this sad affliction.
Mr. W, P, Smith, an old and
highly respected citizen living
Northeast of town died last Friday
at the advanced age of 82 years.
He had many relatives and friends
living in and near the city who
learned of his death with deep sor-
row. His remains were interred
We learn with regret of the
death of the little child of Mr. M.
T. Walker, living near Dial, which
sad event occurred last Friday.
Mr. M. L. Adkins who lived
near Aliens Point was buried
Miss Kate Campbell has just re-
ceived a large line of New Colum-
bian and Opera Sailers which are
very pretty and remarkably cheap.
The ladies are earnestly requested
to call and see them.
Cherokee Strip Opening.
Washington, Aug. 16.—The
seventy-six allotments in the Cher-
okee strip were, reserved last night
by special Agent Swanford. The
draftsmen of the interior are now
busy locating their allotments on
the map, and when this is done
everything will be ready for the
opening. The proclamation is
already prepared and as soon as
the maps are made it will be sent
by a speeial messenger to Buzzard's
Bay for the signature of the presi-
dent. As soon as this is obtained
the special messenger will tele-
graph here and the proclamation
will be issued. It is thought that
all the details can be so arranged
that the strip will be thrown open
either on the 14th, 15th or 16th of
September. The plan of opening
contemplates the prevention of all
"sooner" business, and those who
profess to know something of the
plan'say that the honest seettler
will be hedged about by every pro-
tection and that those who try to
take advantages wilibe sure to lose.
Faith Cures by the Score Attend Dr.
Old Orchard, Me , Aug. 11.—
There was a remarkable scene at
the camp ground today at a meet-
ing set apart by Rev. Dr. Simpson
as a divine healing and testimonies
of cures by faith. There were
more than 3000 people present and
fully 200 testified that they had
been cured without the interven-
tion of physicians. Rev. Dr.
Simpson asked how many had
been cured of organic diseases.
About thirty stood up. Quite a
number testified of cures from con-
sumption and about 100 of cases of
erysipelas. Some of the testimony
was decidedly startling in its
Mrs. Sophronia Peck of East
Boston said a few years ago she
had so many diseases that the doc-
tors could not tell what was really
the matter with her. She dis-
charged the doctors and called on
the Lord and he healed her.
George E. Davis of Burlington, Yt.,
said he had been healed . of pneu-
monia, diptheria and paralysis of
the right arm and Mrs. W. M.
Davis of Bonney Eagler Me.,
claimed to have been freed by faith
from a spinal disease of long stand-
ing. Mrs. F. C. Clark of Tyngs-
boro, Mass., had paralysis of the
optic nerve. A Boston doctsr had
told her there was no cure for her.
Wednesday she went in bathing
and lost her glasses in the surf.
Then she could not see a thing,
but she was led up to the camp
ground, and there, through faith,
her sight was restored. H. K.
Smith of New Britain, Conn.,testi-
3,-case of faith cure of can-
cer of thirteen years' standing.
Mrs. Chase of ReacfsborOy.. Vt.,
after lying in bed five months ~"w&2
given some Christian Alliance
tracts to read. She read them, ac-
cept "d A^?ir tenting., dismissed
the physician and took up her bed
and walked. Mrs. S. E. Hatch of
Boston testified to being cured of a
severe attack of paralysis. She
was helpless five months, but the
Lord cured her in fifteen minutes.
One of the most miraculous cures
was described by Dr. Furrey of
New York, a recent convert to the
Christian Alliance faith. He told
of a typhoid fever patient, a young
man, who, though at death's door,
begged to be baptized. He was
taken to a neighboring pond and
immersed. When he was taken
from the water he walked ten steps.
Today he is alive and well, mar-
ried and the father of four chil-
dren, all born since his wonder-
ful cure. Mrs. Dwight of Boston
told of a man in that city who was
injured by a falling derrick and
taken to a hospital to die, but
there accepted the gospel of divine
healing and was cured. A New
York young woman, who was
wheeled into the grounds on the
opening day of Dr. Simpson's
meetings, said she now walks to
her boarding place.
Mrs. M. J. Clare of New York
testified that she fell in a church
door and broke her wrist. It was
a compound fracture. A physi-
cian called and offered to set it,
but she declined to accept his aid.
It was neiher bandaged nor set,
but the Lord made it whole. The
next to testify was a New Yorker,
who claimed the Lord set a broken
ankle for her within five minutes
after she was thrown from

The Greenville Banner pays the
following compliment to an old
Honey Grove boy who is now
sojourning in Hunt county:
"Prof. R. S. Clark will, on No-
vember 8, begin the Aberfoyle
high school. He is a thorough
teacher and scholar and it is need-
less to say that any school he is at
the head of will be a success. Mr.
Claik was educated at the Honey
Grove high school under the tutor-
ship of his father. Rev. I. W.
Clark, and he has been in the
school room as student or teacher
nearly all his life. He is well
versed in the matter of school
work and will be ably assisted by
a corps of efficient teachers."
