those of smallpox, and should be dealt

We mean the fellow woo usually domi-

society talk is nauseating, but the shal-
low-pated girls think him such a dear,
nice fellow. He courts newspaper noto-

reporter is at his mercy. There is noth-

Intelligence was received in the city the
early part of the week of the death ot W.
H. Sanford. The New York Herald says:
“At his residence, 30 west 128th street, on
July 18, William H. Sanford, in the 71st
year of his age. Funeral private. Inter-
ment at Westport, Conn.” Mr. Sanford
was freight agent of the Katy in the 70's.
He was also one of the first bank presi-
dents in Denison. He resigned to accept
the position t?f president of the First Na-
tional. We think it was about 1880 that
Mr. Sanford left here and went to Gaines
ville, where he was agent of the
and Pacific railway tor some time. Mr.
Sanford left Gainesville and located in
New York Citv where he held a clerkship
with the New York Central. W, H. San-
ford will only be remembered by the
pioneers of Denison.[ In his day and
prime he was one of the best known and
most popular railway, men In the State
In those days there was not over 500
miles ot railway in the; State; whe eas, at
present there is several thousand. He
was an ideal railway official, as popular
with his employees as with the company.
Agent Sanford was highly esteemed by
the business men of Denison. He was s
great mixer with the people; intact, he
divided half his time with the office and
the other half with upttown friends. He
was a remarkably well poised man, noth
ing, in fact, seemed to disturb his equa
nimity. One of the most; admirable traits
ot his character was his devotion to his
tamiiy and his loyalty to his friends. Mr.
Santord had three daughters, beautiful,
cultured Iidies The pioneers are fast
passing to their last sleep, and in a tew
years the number left can b? counted on
the fingers. There has been none more
notable, and whose memory will be more
revered than William H. Sanford.

Nearly every engineer who approaches
the city limits on the Fort Worth division
turns his whistle loose. There seems to
be a rivalry among these fellows as to
who can make the most noise. There ts

peop.e ot the approach of a train. An

attested by the fact that it was attended

struction of reservoirs, dams and
Beit Resolved by the Legislature
of the State of Texas:
That Article h, of the Constitu-
tion of the State of Texas, be
amended by adding thereto Section
20, as follows:
Section 20. In addition to the
powers of taxation granted in the
foregoing sections, it shall be lawful
for the Legislature of Texas to au-
thorize the land owers of the coun-
ties of Archer, Baylor, Clav,
Wichita and Knox to organize irri-
gation districts tn said counties
without regard to connty lines.
In making provisions for the cost
of construction of irrigation works
within said territory, it shall be law-
ful to levy taxes and create an in-
debtedness to rest as a charge on
and be secured by a lien on the ir-
rigable land for the use and benefit
of which said irrigation works have
been or may be constructed. The
Legislature may authorize such
taxes and indebtedness as may be
necessary to construct Irrigation
works within said territory, hut no
taxes shall be levied nor indebted-
ness created in any district until
authorized by a two-thirds vote of
the resident land owners therein

rigation from the proposed works.

Is It Andree’s Balloon?
The Hudson Bay Company offi-
cials have received word that In-
dians, hunting on the east coast of
Hudson Bay, north of St. George,
discovered some wreckage that may
possibly have been that ot the An-
dree expedition. It is stated that
they found last spring a vast quanti-
ty of wreckage and the bodies of
two men and one man who was
dying. Tbe language which this
man spoke was not English, and the
Indians were not able to understand
it They described the car and other
wreckage accurately. Tbe Hudson
Bay officials seem to be convinced
that it was the Andree expedition,
and have sent out a party guided by
the Indiana to find and bring back
evidence to eatabliah tbe truth of
these statements.—Scientific Ameri-

The Greatest City of Homes.
“Philadelpliia is the ‘city of
homes/ ” said a man from there the
other day. “I mean by this that we
have more private residences than
all of New York, Brooklyn and
London. I am not figuring on
apartment houses. I mean separate
houses for each family. The steady
and conservative habit of the peo-
ple is accountable. The mechanic
who has a steady job immediately
buys a. home. He does it on the
installment plan. In a few years
he has that indebtedness paid. Then
the home is his. He will not sell.
This has built up the city wonder-
fully in the past few years. All
these homes can be reached within
fifteen minutes’ ride from the busi-
ness district.”
