- 61 Bales Monday-
On last Monday, March 30,
Weigher Riggan weighed 61
bales of cotton, which were pur-
chased by Bartlett buyers from
parties in- the Walburg country.
The average price paid was nine
cents. The Tribune is proud to
state that its town always heads
the Hat first and last. There
are doubtless few towns the size
of Bartlett that show a record
such as tho above for this period
of the season.
The March term of the Will-
iamson county court adjourned
last Saturday, after a three weeks
session. Of tho criminal cases
on the docket sevontoon ploaded
guilty, five were, acquitted- and
one convioted. Tho most gener-
al offenses on tho docket-seemed
to bo gaming.
On last Friday morning in the
county court of Bell county, Dr.
A. H. Caldwell, a former citizen
of Bartlett was adjudged insane
and ordered sent to the .asylum
at Austin for treatment. About
a year ago Dr. Caldwell and fa-
mily moved from here to Belton.
They have many friends who
deeply deplore the sad misfortune
whioh has befallen them.
Cotton from Florence-
Mr. Joel Preslar, of Florence,
was in Florence, was in Bartlett
Wednesday with several bales of
cotton. which were purchased ' by
our hustling buyers Mr. Preslar
will bring-more' cotton to Bartlett.
this week, we understand. Towns
may come and towns may blow,
but as a cotton market and the
plage to buy your goods, .Bartlett
g'oes on forever,
Finger ,Out Off.'
While playing with other chil-
dren last Sunday afternoon at the
residence of Mrs. J. N. Gunn's the
little daughter pf Mrs. Foster had
the misfortune to get one of her
fingers cut off. They were en-
gaged in playing with a large gal-
vanized tank and in rolling it over,
the finger was in some manner
caught, with the above result.
The Artesian- Well-
hast week the artesian well
reach a depth of 1075 feet, where
a flow of water was found. Work
was suspended till Some needed
casing should bo procured. On
Monday of this week there was
some surprise to find that the
water had risen to tho surface
and overflowing in considerable
quantity. The water is soft,, be-
ing good for drinking ,and- do-
mestic purposes generally. The
bori.ig will go on to greater depth
with the hope of finding a stream
thac will blow the derrick and
tools away, but even .if that
should not happen, the experi-
ment has demonstrated thatthoro
is good water at about 1000 feet
and this could be pumped if ulti-
mately found necessary, but as
aboye said,, the holo will be
punched deeper,- with the .hope
and increased confidence that a
gusher will be the result.
Mr. W. E. Laughlin was in town
Monday after seed corn for re-
planting. He states that "about SO
per cent of the corn planted, just
before the hard rain had rotted,
and replanting was necessary. The
Tribune learns that such is the
case in several, localities where
planting was done prior to the
Oase Continued. -The
Gray case in the district
court at Belton was yesterday con-
tinued by the defendant. - Gray is
charged with picking the pocket
of Dr. Willis some years ago. He
forfeited his bond and was but
recently recaptured. Temple Tii-
bitne. Death of J- JL- Caruth-. '
The' remains of Mr. J. L.' Ca-
ruth, a former citizen of near Da-
villa, arrived here Sunday after-
noon from Ballinger, where lie
died from an accute attack of kid-
ney' trouble, and were taken, to
Davilla and interred .in the ceme-
tery of that place. . Mr. Caruth
was about 55 years ol.'aje. arfd
was an honored citizen' He had
been living in Runnells, county
