Temple, Tex., March 18 Some
seed corn has been received here
whose grains are so large that
the ordinary corn planter in use
has to be rereamed in order to
accommodate the kernel. This

grains, in some instances, are
three-fourths of an inch in length,

two weeks earlier than the native
corn and immense quantities of it
..re being planted m this locality.

From all appearances the past
week it seems that the midnight
prowler and thief is abroad in
Bartlett. On Wednesday night
someone entered the residence of
R. S. Decker and rifled the pock-
ets of his pants, which were lay-
ing across a chair in his bedroom
The pockets only contained S2.20
which was taken. Mr. Decker
had just gotten returns that day
from a shipment of cattle, but
had deposited with the bank all
but the above amount.

Oleun Up Your Promisos.
The attention of city property
owners and residents to a notice
from Mayor Kelley, requesting
that all premises be thoroughly
cleaned of all rubbish and filth
at once. It is imperative that it
should so bo done even if were
not a legal requirement, for filth
certainly breeds disoaso. Clean
up, clean up.
The Tribune is requested to

thing is bright concerning tho
electric railway, and those in-
terested are yet sanguine. Let
tho good work move on.

A Bold Robbery.
On last Monday night one of
the boldest robberies in the his-
tory of this cou.Ury Was perpe-
trated in Bartlett, in which Mr.
W. P. Holland was the victim.
About ten o'clock Mr. Holland,
with his family, returned from
church, and the evening being
warm; he removed his coat and
vest and laid them on the bed.
Presently, after the other mem-
bers of the family had retired, he
picked up a banjo and played a
few pieces, laid it down and look-
ed for his coat and vest in which
was his pocket-book, but all of
them were gone and could be
found nowhere about. The pock-
et book contained about $200 in
currency and about the same
amount in checks on St. Louis,
Houston and Galveston banks,
and one or more money orders.
It seems evident that while Mr.
Holland was entertaining himself
with the banjo some sneak thief
stepped into the well-lighted room
and took the coat and vest with-
out the least noise. It was cer-
tainly a singularly bold and suc
cessful piece of work. At this
writing no clue to the robbery has
been obtained, though most dilli-
gent search has been made. Mr.
Holland is an affable, popular
merchant, and practically every-
body who knows him is his friend
and will regret that any loss be
fell him, especially this rather
heavy one, fortunately, how
ever, he is able to bear it without
A meeting of the patrons of
the German-English school, be

Fred, Knight, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Joe Knight, was taken to

He stood the operation well and

was in. Drs. Harlan, of Bartlett,
and Scott and White, of Temple,
attended the patient.

Take Notice Citizens-
Owing to the cantinious rains
the city is now in a very unsani
tary condition. This is an dffic-
ial notice to one and all that there
must be a general cleaning up of
back yards, outhouses, pig pens,
stock lots, and the like, within
the city limits, at the earliest pos-
sible moment. After you have
cleaned out the rubbish a generous
application of lime is suggested.
Don't throw trash, dead cats, or
fowls in the streets or back alleys,
It is a violationof the city law to
maintain a nuisance, such as smell
ing pig pens, stock lots, surface
pools of house or kitchen waste,
and slops. It is very disagreeable
to the neighbors adjoining such
places. There has been consider-
able complaint with reference to
the above, "but there has been no
remedy for it during the long
rainy weather. I trust that you
may now., all join with willing
hands in a general renovation and
disinfection of our city. It is the
Marshals duty to go around in
the alleys and see that a general
cleaning up is attended to.

On last Friday, while near tho
home of John Hunt, tho team of
R. E. Stewart became frightened
and attempted to runaway, throw
ing him from the wagon, the
wheels passing over his logs, but
fortunately not injuring him.
The wagon was loaded with two
bales of cotton ana in crossing a
low place the wagon run up
against the team, which caused
them them to scare.
