The presence of our old friend
Wolf recalls a frightful Fourth of
July tragedy which happened twen-
ty-four years ago. Wolf kept a
saloon on the site of the,Blue Front
Racket Store. It was a wooden
structure. The night of the 3rd an
Indian was killed in his back yard.
The whole top of his head was
blown off. After the murder the
Indian was doubled up and thrust
into the head of a large barrel. It
was an awful sight. The writer was
about the first to discover the mur-
dered man. It seem that be bad
been followed across the river by
another Indian. It was an old feud.
Governor Buraev, who was here to
celebrate the Fourth, had the body
placed in a wagon and carried to the
Indian Territory for burial. The
governor was well ajware who the
murderer was but took no action in
the matter as it might have involved
ms personal safety.
We noticed one thing in particu-
lar at the World’s fair. We saw
many thousands of ladies drinking
beer. There were hundreds of pa-
vilions and all crowded with ladies
and gents quafing beer. The weath-
er whs as hot as mid-summer and
beer was delightfully refreshing.
Hundreds of people have been
killed and maimed at the World’s
fair by the street cars. Eternal vig-
ilance is the price of your life. A
street car dashes by every minute in
the day; they only run a block
apart. The contusion of getting
on and off a car is so great that pas
seDgers get ’demoralized, and then
tl ey are sure to get hurt. Col. Bo-
gar had a very narrow escape of it,
but it cost the company $300. Fred
is laughing up his sleeve yet at how
cheap he saw the World’s fsir.
The more we see of the country
the more we like it. If we were
neb we would live in the country,-
A person to enjoy country hie must

It is bad enough to be old and
poor but it is worse to have people
tell you of it.
There was a heavy frost Iriday
Nearly every worthy man is timid.
Impudence is a characteristic of the
fakir and thief; it is impudence that
leads the thief to the notion that be
can live by his wits.
Some person visited the premises
of W. R. Mills, the 900 block West
Crawford street, and carried off a
lot of wood. Tbe thief bad the gall
to bring along a wagon.
A few years ago there used to be
thousands of prairie chickens within
a few miles of Denison.
W.|B. Munson has purchased the
St. John cafe, and Ralph St. John
is again in charge. The bakery de-
partment will be a separate teature
oFthe; cate. The cate was opened
the past week and the old patrons
welcome Ralph back. There is no
reason why this should not be the
most popular cafe in Denison.
We saw an old fashioned leather
carpet bag to-day that was made
sixty-fpur vears ago in New York
state. Tbe bag was very good yet.
It illustrated wonderfully the pro-
gress that has been made even in
The swiftest thing that we have
beard jof in Denison for some time
happened in September. A girl
engaged to a fellow jilted him one
night and was married tbe next day
to another fellow.
Tbe theatrical season is now
opened, and judging trom what
some of tbe papers are saying jt is
evidently open to criticism.
George Goodrich who arrived
here last Saturday reports that a
young man who resides in Lamar
county was seriously burt a few days
ago lb Blue, where a bunting party
was dynamiting the water for fish.
Goodrich did not learn tbe name of
the young mar. One of his hands
was blown off.
Mr. J. J. Gossett of this city was
installed at Sherman Odd Fellows’
hall into tbe office of Grand Chief
Patriarch of tbe Grand Encamp-
ment of tbe state of Texas. Quite
a number were present from this
It is stated that wood will go to
$5.00 per cotd as there is a scarcity.
A boy in this city whose age is
said to be 18 years, has gone crazy
from t xcessive cigarette smoking,
at least tbis is wbat tbe attending
pbysican told tbe Gazrttkkr. As
strange as it may seem, the habit
was tolerated by the boy’s parents
who never made any effort to pre
vent it. Nearly every boy in Deni
son at the present time is given to
the cigarette habit and not a few to
teeth a little this fail, because of the
action of President Roosevelt in ap-
pointing a good many Catholics to
positions in the Philippine*. That
is a Catholic country, and it would
seem sensible to appoint officials
the people want.
The beauhtul residence of Paul
Waples on the corner of Morton
street end Perry avenue, 1200 west,
has been purchased by A. S. Bur-
roughs of Burlington, Iowa, who
will make Denison hi* future home.
The geiUIeman is a director of the
ietely Organised Southern

company ot tjiis city.
Contractors and builders inform

A horse attached to the buggy of
Mrs. Lee ran away last Saturday on
Tone avenue. The lady jumped
from the back of tbe buggy and was
slightly bruised m falling to the
ground. This runnaway illustrates
wbat the Gazetteer has always
said, that no horse is safe. The
animal is sixteen years of age and
has been owned by tbe Lee family
lor a number of years and was
brought here trom Kansas about
two years ago. The horse has been
so gentle tnat tbe children could
drive him, yet he wa* frightened
mto a runaway at the small object
of a youth running in front of him.
A woman doesn’t take kindly to
the Gazetteer’s wedding notices,
that they are ail alike, the groom
manly and promising and the bride
lovely, etc. We would like tbe lady
to tell us what we should say; if we
should tell the plain unvarnished
truth about brides and grooma we
would be mobbed. When it comes
to writing obittrtary and wedding
notices, the less said that is truth
People from the territory manage
to get drunk just the game as they
did before. Our Indian friends es-
pecially seem to be getting on to
the “joints” and bootleggers.
Tbe older we grow the more we
are satisfied that it pays to be polite
and considerate of other people’s
feelings. You make triends and

graces of people who may be of ad-
vantage to you when you want a

Steve Brown and Ed. James who
left here several months ago for
Sedalia, Mo., are doing well. They
recently opened up a good saloon.
There is a party in the city getting
subscriptions to a directory ot Gray-
son county. He has caught a num-
ber for $20. Now as a general
thing this sort ot literature is very
unsatisfactory, it is a money catch-
ing scheme. The history as a gen-
eral thing is superficial and not cor-
rect. We don’t charge this to the
present effort, but we are betting
that the book will not give satitac-
jion—mark the prediction.
A lap robe and whip was stolen
today (Saturday) from the buggy of
Mrs. Hammond who was out call-
ing. Mrs. Hammond stopped at
the home of Mrs. Rich on Shep-
pard street. While in tbe house a
negro walked up to the buggy and
swiped the robe and whip. A boy
reported tbe occurrence to Mrs.
Hammond. The negro carried a
dinner pail and looked as if he was
a coal hauler.
“Judge,” a valuable bird dog the
property of Ed. Parks, died of dis-
temper last Friday.
Last Saturday a lineman dropped
from the top of a telegraph pole an
open knife which decended with tbe
blade perpendicular. The blade
just grazed the head of Editor
Scholl ot tbe Dispatch. If it had
struck him it would have penetrated
An officer who if soaked in
whisky about all tbe time is a dis-
grace to the people who had suffic-
ient confidence to give him the sut-
ferage. A man of this character
cannot give a conscientious perform-
ance of duty.
It is said that Durant, I. T., is
3,000 bales 01 cotton ahead of Deni-
son in receipts.
There is a great deal of cotton
yet to be gathered—fields that have
hardly been touched.
J. W. McMillen, one of the pros-
perous farmers in the neighborhood
of Bells, has sold 283 bushels of
yellow yam sweet potatoes tbis fall,
and has 1000 bushels yet to dig.
His corn crop measured up 1,400
bushels, and he has sixty head of
hogs to , teed it to. Early in the
season be sold $200 worth of water
melons—$110 worth to one man.
In addition to all this he will have
about fifteen bales of cotton. Mc-
Milien is not grumbling,
J. W. Robertson who was here
Monday from Blue county, Choc-
taw nation, informed the Gazet-
teer that the Mississippi Choctaws
b§d recently fired into the camps of
Texas hunting parties and that two
hunters had been wounded. The
Mississippi Choctaws have taken up
allotments on Blue river and in the
Boggy districts along the clear
and muddy Boggies. They are de-
termined that the white man shall
not hunt in their country and rt
would by dangerous to attempt it.
Last winter two Texas hunters were
killed near the fotka of the Boggy.
From what we can learn, however,
they wore professional hog thieves
and were caught red-handed.
Sunday was an ideal fair day.
Tbe weather was exhilarating aa a
quaff of champagne. Tbe atreeta
were thronged with pedestrians. A
large number of people spent tbe
day in the country having a good
time. Now ia the accepted time to
go to the wood*.
The biggest dead beats in Deni-
son put on the most style and assume
the most air*.
Mrs. Jane Holt, who has been
very ill, left Tuesday for Miaeral
Tom McCarthy of this city, has
just been granted an increase in pen-
sion. As Tom has reached the age
limit of 70 vears he is entitled to
$12. We hope that Tom will get it
Mud-hens when prepared proper-
ly are just as good as wild ducks.
To make them palatable soak them
over night in salt water and Doil
them. This removes the fishy taste.
A wagon containing sixteen cot-
ton pickers left this city Monday
morning for the country. The ma-
jority were pickaninies. There ia a
gnat deal ot cotton in tbe fields,
especially in the bottoms.
On December 31 the Louisana
Purchase Exposition will dose.
The thousands of electric lights will
go out forever and the Ivory city
will be a thing of memory only.
It is a patriotic duty of every person
to visit the world’s fair if they are
able. Don’t miss it.
Mr*. W. S. White, residing a few
miles east of Denison, has sold her
farm to Messrs. A. K. and Malcom
Henry, the peculiar feature of the
transaction is that this is the first
transfer of the land. In 1S41 it was
patented by the Republic ot Texas,
Miram B. Lamar president and
Thos. Ward land commissioner, to
Chas. Smith. Cbas. Smith was
killed by the Indians, leaving a
widow but no children. The widow
married and again became a widow
with one child, a little girl. Tbe
widow again married, tbis time'a
Mr. Pearson and to them another
girl was born. The family visited
Ohio where tbe elder girl died. Mr.
and Mrs. Pearson returned to Texas
and settled permanently on the
Chas. Smith headlight and soon
after this he was killed by the In-
dians near the Carpenter bluff cross-
ing on Red river. The little girl,
Miss Pearson, grew to womanhood
and married W. S. While. Mr.
White died a few years since and
now^the widow is selling the re-
remainder of her inheritance to the
We noticed last Saturday several
parties of boys going out hunting.
Tbe oldest kid was probably not
over 15 years. It is criminal neg-
lect on the part ot parents to allow
boys of that age to use fife arms. A
number have been killed and
maimed. The boys are not to
blame. Tbe responsibility rests
with tbe parents.
Tbe stone macadam is being in
troduced on Main street; another
humbug at the people’s expense.
In tbe course of a few weeks at tbe
longest, tbe stone will be converted
into dust. There is something
radically wrong with this street bust
ness. We should think trom past
experience and cost to the city that
the council would take a tumble es
penally as the members of the
street and alley committee are
nearly all old members.
The ice season is about over, but
the coal season has begun.
A western judge sitting in
dressmaker’s damage suit, graphic-
ally describes hill dress for women
as “a short dress on top.” This is
probably correct, but that short
dress makes a mighty long bill
The St. Louis fair is grand
enough by daylight, but at night ft
is entrancing. Nothing can be
more delightful than to loaf in the
shadow of the great buildings espec-
ially on tbe plaza ot St. Louia and
behold the ravishing face of the
waters colored by the thousands of
electric lights. There is nothing
but plea.ant sounds falling upon the
ear. Tbe musical voice of tbe
gondolier floats up from the wa-
ters, as they dart here and there
in the waters, all silvered over with
electric beams. Tbe World’s fair
is all romance and beauty. Tbe
present century will'never behold
the like again.
The cold storage eggs so plentiful
in Denison are about fifty per cent
Mrs. W. F. Conner while pro-
ceeding to an Interurban car last
Saturday to visit Sherman lost her
pocket book containing $13.50. It
was never recovered.
J. A. Euper is selling lots for
several promising towns in Oklaho-
ma. See Joe. There is money in
it for a person who wants to double
bis money m a abort period.
A single tax labor club is being
talked of in Denison. -

church to tbe curbing.

Salt pork is a famous old-
fashioned remedy for con
sumption. “Eat plenty of
pork,” was the advice to the
consumptive 50 and 10c
Salt pork is good if a man
can stomach it. The idea
behind it is that fat is the
food the consumptive needs
Scott’sEmulsion is the mod-
ern method of feeding fat to
the consumptive. Pork is too
rough for sensitive stomachs.
Scott’s Emulsion is the most
refined of fats, especially
prepared for easy digestion.
Feeding him fat in thif
way, which is often the only
way, is half the battle, but
Scott’s Emulsion does more
than that. There is some-
thing about the combination
ot cod liver oil and hvpophos-
phites in Scott’s Emulsion
that puts new life into the
weak parts and has a special
action on the diseased lungs.
