it tho bouse of Mr. A. B. Persons,
missed her watch about 10 o'clock
this morning. She rememberod to
have looked at if not more than an
hour before that time and at once
thought it had been stolen.
. She at oBce informed officer Borah
and alep stated that a little oolorad
boy named Sam was the only one
she could think of as being the thief.
Upon further inquiry it was learn-
ed that a woman had called there
just before the watch was missed
and tried to aell a quilt to Mrs. Per-
Officer Burch at once began in-
vestigating the affair and in about
half an hour he found the woman
in the pawn shop of B. N. Brown,
trying to dispose of the watch and
immediately arrested her.
The woman was accompanied by
a little girl about two years old.
She gives her name as Liazie Barnet
and claims to be from Sherman.
Such quick work is very credita-
ble to the officor who made the
arrest and bis success is very fortu-
nate for Mies Summerfield as the
watob was a valuable wold one and
prized all the more as being a pres-
oot from as absent brother.

the “Willis." They were on the
freight train that leaves for the

For some time past they have
been disposing of horses in this city
which they purported to have pur-
chased in the Indian Territory, the
officers have been watching their
movements for some time, suspf-
cioning them as horse''thieves. A

ritory in regard to stolen stock,
describing very accurately one or
two animals that bad been sold in
this city by the “Willie’.”
When arrested at the depot they
bad in their possession about two
quarts ef Whiakey and two saddles,

An interesting bit of gossip ia now
going the rounds of some circles of
society in the nortbweet part of
town In regard to a newly married
young man, who returned unex-
pectedly from the oountry the other
day and found his wife in the arms
of “another fellah" who wa* caress-
ing her in the most affectionate
manner. The husband stressed the
“other fellah” with a billet of wood,
aad baa, wo understand, gone to
8borman to consult a lawyer ia re-
gard to getting a divoroe.
Wo call the attention of every one
to the faot that we have greatly re-
dOoed the price of Singer machines,
and aro offering extra inducemeata
for cask. We will also sell tbeSiager
on monthly installments, and at
prices much lower than before. This
will place the Singer la every hoaso
where a sewing machine to needed.
We were forced to tern several
ladies from our office last week be-
cause we eould not sell them
machines on monthly 'Installments, .
but we have now prefeoted arrange-
ments with our company whioh
enable* us to foroish the Singer upon •
this plan, aad at a redooed price.
We intend to retain the exclusive
sewin| machine trade of North
Texas by doing a fair and sqaare
business, by furniihing none but the
genuine Singer, and by placing oar
machines within the reach of both
rich and poor.
Come and see ue and learn our
prices and terms. We have placed
acMatnprioe upon our maehines
and will not deviate from it.
