event which transpired at the meeting
was the election of oW^ers for 1904. The
election resulted In ’all the. old officers

The distance traveled in dances ha*
been cal. u I ated by some statistical mind*
An average waltze takes one over about
f “three-quarters of a mile. A square dance
makes you cover about half a mhe, while
a rapid gallop will oblige you to traverse
just about one mile It will thus be seen
that If a girl with a well filled program
dances from eighteen to twenty dances in
an evening, the result is really appalling.
Say there are twelve waltaes—a fair aver-
age—this alone makes nin- miles Three
gallops added to this makes it twelve
miles, while from three to five other
dance* at half a mile apiecv, bring her
close upon thirteen or fitteen miles. This
is exclusive of the usual promenade and

Late tunny story: The Ladies' Aid
society of the Methodist church at Bay-

money to pay the back salary due the
paator. 1 he ungodly man wfio had the
turkey, fattened it on chestnuts and apple
jack, and, when it was brought into the
church the noble bird was a* tull a* a

A Washington dispatch says: Judge
Silas litre, the predecessor of Joseph W
Bailey as representative from the Filth
district ot Texas, and the father of Gen
Li'ther Hare, worked a good-sized sur-
prise on his friends today, accoroing to
te egrams received here from Baltimore
tonight. The judge left his apartments
at the Montress hotel this morning, and
announced that he was going to Texas.
Tonight the Baltimore newspapers wned
their correspondents: “Silas Hare and
Mar. L. Kennedy were married here to
day. Who are they?” This was the first
intimation that Judge Hare was contem
plating matrimony, and information from
Baltimore is that the judge and his bride
have gone to Texas on their honeymoon

Married—On the 23rd Inst., Miss Lillie
Lane and Mr, Charles L. Deffebach, at
the residence of the bride's parents, 822
West Day street. The bride is a native
of Virginia, having had the foundation of
her education laid in the schools for
which the mother state is noted, and
which was admirably finished in the
Washington High school ot Denison, and
the Nash aAd Carr-Burdett college of
Sherman S e is known to a large circle
ot friends as a cultured *"d refined young
lady. Mr. Deffebach, formerly of South
Dakota, where in partnership with 1
brothet hr was engaged in cattle raising
He came to Texas about a year ago on
account of ill health. In a very short
lime he had fully recovered his former
state of good health and be ng a young
msn ot keen perception htd seen the
advantage Texas has to offer and had de
elded that the Lone Star State with her
healthful climate, bountiful resources and
handsome southern lassies was good
enough for him. HI* business qualifica-
tions 8oon placed him at the head of the
Rockwell Lumber Co'.s business in Den
ison where by the energy and business
push, characteristic of the man, he has
built up a profitable trade. Mr. Deffe-
bach had erected a neat and cosy cottage
at 1300 Sears street, where he and his
handsome little bride are enjoying do-
mestic felicity, and are home to friends.
The wedding was a quiet one in accord
with the wishes o' the bride to be. Only
a few or the most intimate friends were
present. Out ot town guests were Mrs.
Will Lane and Mr. Hall, brother ot the
bride’s mother, ot Fort Worth,'and Mis
W. H, Lawrence ot Durant. After the
wedding ceremony, an elegant 6uppei
was served,i and about the hospitable
board generally good cheer was the
_key note of tnt» occasion and formality
had no place. The supper, every dish of
which was me wora of the skilled hands
of the bride and her mother, was an ideal
one and added enjoyment ot the mary
good things was the portion of each guest
on this account. About 11 o’clock bride
and groom bade their triends goodnight
and repaired to the new home prepared
for them by the groom, followed by the
good wishes of all. The Gazetteer
joins in congratulation?

King Who Hated Medicine. Q
Abdur Rahman, the late Ameer of
Afghanistan, was a great king, an
absolute ruler whose nod meant life
or death to his subjects. In a hun-
dred battles he had proved himself a
great warrior, but there was one thing
he feared—a dose of medicine.
One day, when he was very ill, he
refused to take a nasty draught which
his English doctor prescribed.
Fortunately he had a strong-minded
wife, who wrote to him:
‘ Are you a king or a boy?
thought you a. king, but I hear that
you are a boy. If you are a king, do
what your doctor orders, aa you ex-
pect your people to do what you
Abdur Rahman meekly took the
medicine and wrote back that he was
a king and no boy.
On another occasion he left Ms
palace and rode a hundred miles away
into tbe mountains to avoid being
dosed by his doctor and his queens

Chicago has been the home of “The
Burgomaster” but when the present com-
pany played there this summer, the pa-
pers unanimously declared that the pro-
duction was the best in every way that
hud ever been given of the great light
opera. No Mother musical comedy ever
produced in this country ever had so
many popular and catchy airs. Frank
Pixley and Gustav Luders had but one
object in writing ‘‘The Burgomaster.”
Pixley wrote words that made the public
laugh, Luders wrote music to set the
feet a dancing and to make one whittle.
Lawrence Tone was In the Iroquoise
theater in Chicago, the evening of the
horrible fire and his name was pub-
lished in .the list of the dead, but his
brother Harry received- a telegram from
him the next morning bearing the wet
come intelligence that he escaped without
Jatnet W. Burson of Yarapat colinty,
Arizona, accompanied by his wile, are in
the etty on a visit to S. C. Burson, rela-
tives and triends. Mr. Burson and wite
left Arizona about three weeks ago and
have been taking matters leisurely, see-
ing the sights, taking kodac views and
having a good time generally. Mr. Bur
son has large and lucrative mining Irvter-
estSiin Arizona in the counties ot Gsra-
pia and Yuma. He is a democratic mem-
ber of the Arizona senate. Mr. Burson,
in the seventies, was one of the best
known newrpaper men in Denison and
in Texas, in tact he was one of the first to
publish a daily paper in Denison, which
wielded gieat influence. Burson'* news-
paper efforts were ot the strenuous char-
acter. He was never afraid to express
his opiniou and attack an evil that af-
fected the public weal. It was an era ot
Intense personal j u.nalism, and every is-
sue of the Cresset was sizzing hot Peo-
ple used to look for the paper in those
dats because “there was something do-
ing,” A th*illing volume might be writ-
ten on early newspaper days in Denison,
and Jim Burson, as fce used to call him,
would be a central figuie He was one
ot the most prominent tactors in the pio-
neer days of the Infant Wonder. There
was not a movement that he was not
mixed up in. It seems strange that a
tnan like Mr. Burson can walk up the
streets of Denison at the present time
and not meet a person that he knows. It
shows how fast events march, and the
gieat changes a few year6 make. Mr.
Burson was one of the most brilliant and
caustic writers on the Texas press. It ht
had anything to 6ay, people always lis-
tened. There was no wishy-washy jour-
na.ism those days. It was not a question
of dollars and cents. Burson was never
atraid to hurt anybody's feelings If he
thought they deserved it and the public
good was at stake. He was one ot the
most fearless newspaper men that Texas
ha6 ever produced. From here Mr. Bur-
son moved to Galveston and founded the
Evening Tribune, which is still one ol
the leadi ig publications of the Island
City. Mr. Burson married here and has
raised a family ot children, all grown and
doing well. Mr. Burson has resided jn
Arizona for a number of years. His min-
ing interests will keep the wolf from the
door the balance of his life and leave the
children comfortable. He still has an
itching for the newspaper business, and
has in view the establishing of two or
three democratic journals in Arizona for
the purpose of putting it safely in the
democratic column. He and Mrs. Bur-
son will remain in Denison for a fort-
night yet. Mr. Burson’s father, S. C.
Burson, is in very bad health, hence the
Mosquitoes Scare Madrid.
At 2 in the afternoon, when the
most frequented part of Madrid.
Puerta del Sol, was swarming with
traffic and people, the sun was sud
denty obscured by a black cloud of
They burst upon the street with a
noise resembling the roar of the sea,
and instantly the faces and hands of
men, women and children and the
bodies of horses and other animals
were covered by the insects, which
entered eyes, mouths and noses
Millions swarmed through the open
doors of the cafes and stores, amf a
general panic ensued. Horses ran
away, ambulances were called for and
people fought with canes, umbrellas
and anything else they could get hold
For about five minutes the tiny
blood suckers had their innings. Then
they rose, and the people saw the
black cloud disappear heavenward.
Many of the stores and cafes had to
be closed to be cleared of mosquitoes,
as customers did not dare enter as
long as the pests remained . alive.—
