ful are the embroidered batistes

Mrs. S. H. Wilson, Historian
Texas Division United Daughters
of the Confederacy, recommends
the inauguration of a literary
contest among the different
Chapters of the State, and sug-
gest subjects for essays and
discussions. The idea is a hap-
py one and should be adopted at
or.ce by those who have not in-
augurated such a move. But,
with Brenham Tom Green Chap-
ter the advice is a little stale, as
this Chapter has been engaged
in literary work of this nature
ever since its organization; in
fact this feature forms a promin-
ent part of their program at each
meeting of the Chapter. With-
out resorting to vain boasting,
the Banner does not believe that
there is another Chapter of the
Daughters in Texas that can sur-
pass the Brenham Chapter in
point of excellence in their
Mrs. J. B. Williams, the very
efficient president and com-
mander of the Tom Green Chap-
ter, is a periatent, energetic
worker and a fine organizer, and
supported as she is by the entire
membership, her success has
While the Chapter already has
a fine membership, yet there is
room on the roll for others, and
every daughter, wife, mother or
sister of a Confederate soldier
ought to consider it an honor to
belong to such an organization
Mr. Gus. Schumacher, over-
seer of the Brenham and Gay
Hill road, had his hands out
Monday and repaired the breaks
and wash-outs in that thorough-
fare as far as possible. The
rocky crossing over New Years
creek has been sufficiently re-
paired so as to permit light ve-
hicles to cross, but he does not
consider it safe for loaded wag-
ons until the bridge has been re-
placed, which S|hould be done as
soon as possible.
J B. Campblll, Jr., had the
misfortune to stick a nail in his
left foot last Monday morning,
and is suffering considerable
pain in consequence.
Market Letter fo Sanger & Ettle-
New York, Aug. 5. — Cotton
declined 2 to 4 points on lower
cables and clear weather in
Texas after which there was a
rally and a slight advaneo on
buying by shorts including Wall
Street. Still later there was a
a recession on looal and southern
selling due to the government
Liverpool declined 2 12 to
3 1-2 points but recovered about
half the loss It is more than
ever a weather market.
Statistical considerations for
the moment are relegated to the
back-ground though it would be
a mistake to suppose that th«*y
are entirely ignored. The great
question, however, is the weath-
er; if good prices will weaken
and if bad they must advance.
Much may happen within the
next naooth or six weeks Mean-
time buy on breakn and sell for
turn on rallies.

ing trial before Justice Chappell

The Ball Game.
Quite an enthusiastic gather-

close finish and viotory for the

The second game between the
the two teams will take plaoe at
4:30 this afternoon at the park.

mer living three miles north of

ed man who had worked off and

15O Washington County Negroes Taken to
Louisiana and Left Without Means of
Last Friday night a man
olaiming to bo a Louisiana saw
mill operator loft Brenham with
150 oolored people with whom he
had contraoted to furnish em-
ployment the year round at from
$1 50 to $1.75 per day. He was
assisted in obtaining these hands
by a oolored man known here as
Ezell, and while informing them
that their services would bfe
needed in working about a saw
mill, he was careful not to tell
them that they were wanted to
take the place of striking labor-
ers Imagine their surprise then
upon reaohinp their destination
A'hen they diwcovered that their
train was surrounded by white
and colored ntrikers, who forbid
them to stop there, much less go
1'his put many of them, who
had sold their effeots here and
had their families with thom, in a
serious dilemma. They found
themselv> h in a strange country
without sufficient funds with
which to defray their expenses
back Inni", and denied the priv
ele^e of wurking ior a means of
eubaistance. These facts were
gleaned from four of the gang
who managed to beat their way
back home. What will be the
final outcome remains to bo
Tho man who employed these
laborers should have fully in-
formed them of the condition of
affairs at the mill—told them
they were wanted to take the
place of strikers, etc. In his
failure to do this he virtually
places himself before these peo-
ple as an imposter, and there is
some talk oi instituting heavy
damage suits against the perpe-
trator of such an unwarranted
outrage upon a defenceless class
of ignorant people.
Mis. F, Boeiiker, Sister oi C. H. Bohne of
This City Shoots Herself through
About 7 o'clock Tuesday
morning Mrs, F. Boenker, a
widow woman, about 45 years of
age, living near the old town of
Washington, committed suicide
by shooting herself through the
head with a revolver. No reas-
on assigned for the rash act, but
is believed that the continued
failure of crops in that section
by overflow, together with the
loss of her husband some time
since had brought about a de-
mented condition of her mind,
which culminatsd in tho tragedy.
She leaves one son and other
relatives to mourn her loss.
Dr. Lay returned from Bur-
ton Tuesday afternoon, where he
was summoned to assist in per-
forming an operation on Mrs. W.
H. Derrick, who has recently lost

tor reports, that the operation was
successful and satisfactory, and
that the patient was greatly re-
lieved in consequence.
