At a meeting of the school
board held Tuesday evening, R.
P. Henry, Sr., resigned from
the board of directors.
This resignation was brought
about by a ruling of the Attorney
General on the depository ques-
The bo^rd advertised for bids
for the depository o f school
funds, and A. A. Hunlev was the
successful bidder. The new
ruling given is to the effect that
an individual, other than a bank-
er or member of a corporation
can not hold the office. This
necessitated advertising for new
bids. R. P. Henry & Sons,
Bankers, were the only bidders,
and this necessitated the re-
isgnation of Mr. Henry from the
board of school trustees, as the
law does not permit a trustee to
be a keeper of the funds.
Mr. Henry has been a member
of the board of trustees for a
number ot years and this year
was serving as president.
The board will at their regular
meeting, the first Tuesday in
November, elect a trustee to fill
the vacancy, as it is the duty
of the board to fill all vacancies.

fects, including morning costumes, aft-
ernoon dresses, separate clothes of all
sorts; and evening gowns, wedding
dresses and negligees.
Miss Tulley, who is a very clever
and able woman, requires an hour and
a half for this wonderful showing,
which includes appropriate costumes
for maid-servants and men-servants.
“Fifteen of1 the most beautiful mod*
els in the world displaying the latest
modes of what My Lady wears from

visitors will be especially delighted
with a Silver Foam Dress, a Fire Fly
Dress, a Pastel Gown and a Lily Gown.
These and hundreds of other beautiful
creations will be shown in settings all
their own. ,
It is unnecessary to state that all
the essentials necessary to carry out
this unusual offering have not been
overlooked. Riding horses and ponies,
special scenery, automobiles, etc., are
given to assist T. J. Parks in
celebrating his birthday Oct. 13,
at his home at DeSoto. Those
from Lancaster who were so
fortunate as to receive a “bid’'
were Dr. Fiske, H. S. Strain, P.
H. McDavid and J. A. Boyd. As
usual a banquet was served;
stories related and toasts drink.
The fact that doctors and drug-
gists carried with them well-
filled medicine cases prevented
many cases of indigestion. Mr.
Parks grows younger as the
years go by, and here’s wishing
him many more joyous birth-
days,surrounded by family, rela-
tives, and old Comrades.

Dallas: One of the yery biggest at-
tractions at the State Fair of Texas
this year will he the exhibitions of
the MUler Bros, and Arlington’s 101
Ranch Wild West Shows which will
be seen inside the grounds during the
first four days of the annual fall edu-
cational and industrial entertainment
And, incidentally, one of the biggest
features in connection with the Wild
West Show if “Big Jess” Willard,
champion heavyweight pugilist of the
■ This Goliath of the Kansas plains
whose 1750-bound blow and terrible
81-inch reach shattered the pugilistic
hopes of one John Arthur Johnson,
the "Big Smoke,” wears his laurels
‘modestly. In fact, be is as retiring
almost as & school girl and the hard-
est part of his dally program is that
of shaking hands with the crowds of
admiring fight fans who follow him
about wherever he goes. Willard was
a cowboy before he became an as-
pirant for* fistic honors. His associa-
tion with the Wild West 8how seems
to ha peculiarly fitting in view of hia
experience, in fact, it is said, he is
simply getting back to first principles,
for at one time he was a cowpuncher
on the 101 Ranch at Bliss, Oklahoma,
fronu’which the big show gets its name.
Jess is an expert horseman and is
capable of mastering the most obstrep-
erous cayuse that ever champed a bit.
_He appears in the Wild West Show
as a cowpuncher and later during the
performance dons his ring costume
and with his sparring partner will ii-
jlustrate how he sent Jaek Johnson to
j Willard dodges the crowds as much
as possibly and frequently, when
’some of his acquaintances or sporting
celebrities call to pay their respects
at the big top, the champion is hard
to find. Generally he is located behind
some Indian tepee playing as a child
with some Indian boy or girl. He is
familiar with most of the games play-
ed by the Indian children of half a
dozen different tribes, and appears to
enjoy all of them as much as the
.little Red Skins themselves.
] The champion travels in his own
private car and this car serves him
as a heaven of retreat when admir-
ing crowds press him too closely. He
is always courteous but wearies of
the attentions paid him and consid-
ers the whipping of Jack Johnson one
of the most ordinary things he has
ever accomplished He wonders at
the importance placed upon the
achievement by the average citizen.
The fact that this section has not
seen a genuine Wild West Show for
several years should add to the in-
terest aroused by, the coming of this
typical frontier .exhibition. The of-
fering of Willard as the big attraction
has evidently not been the occasion
for reducing the other strenuous at-
tractions with the show, and the ex-
hibition comes heralded as the most
typical ds^frlay of its kind before the
public. Scores of Wild West cham-
lpons contribute to a program that is
full of exhilerating, educational en-
tertainment. There Is a congress of
