try and the city council chamber is
so situated that fresh air is at a pre-
mium, nevertheless the room was
crowded long hefore Mayor Yo-
com's gavel called the crowd to

every member was in his seat.
A special committee reported

Auction Sale of Texas Jersies.
On Tuesday of this week, May

Memorial Day In Denison.
AILUBE OF MB.
Mr, M. H. Sherburne, made an
assignment Saturday last, naming J.
D. Yocorn as trustee. Mr. Sher-
burne is one of the oldest merchants
doing business in Denison. He
came to the city from Lawrence,
Kansas, in the spring of 1S73, and-
embaTked in the shoe business in a
franje building on the same lot
where the brick he now occupies
stands. About a year ago his large
stock of bjots and shoes was nearly
all destroyed by fire, and as he car-
ried only a small insurance, his loss
was heavy, and the present assign-
ment is the result. Mr. Sherburne
is one ot the best shoe men in North
Texas, possessed of indominable
energy, and has. the confidence of
everybody—too good a business
man to long remain idle—and the
Gazetteer expects to soon see
him on his feet again. The liabili-
ties are enumerated as follows :
Sam Berliner, San Antonio...........$343,00
S. A.: Gilbert, Denison ...............150.CO
Zelgler Bros., Philadelphia .....,... 176.00

Mr. Sherburne estimates the
assets at $5,000. The back rent,
and'S. A. Gilbert’s bill tor legal
services are the first accounts to be
paid, and the other accounts pro
curred the first consolidated auction
sale ot registered acclimated Texas
Jersey cattle by the Texas Jersey
Cattle Club. Denison was repre-r
sented by Messrs. Platter & Foster,
who furnished five cows and two
bulls lor the auction. The Denison
cattle sold as follows: “Daisy of
Gainesville,” No. S3552, 3 years
old, sold to F. P. Holland, of the
Texas Farm & Ranch, for $75.
“Trixie Royalisf of Lawn,” No.
76134, 3-vears, sold to W. A. Shaw,
“Baby Mine of Lawn,” No.
85,588, yearling, sold to G. W.
Dike, Farmersville, Collin county,
“Maraii Signal,” No. 84,419,
yearling, sold to G. L. Shumecker,
Dallas, for $ 145.
“Lassie Pogis of Lawn,” No.
84,410, 2-years, sold to W. R.
Spann, ot Dallas, tor $300.
“Harry Tormenter,” No. 36,359,
bull call, sold for $40.
“Coffee E,” No. 36,35s, bull calf,
sold to Mr. Wood tor $32.50.
The average sale of cows per head
Mr. Platter attended the sale, re-
turning home Wednesday. To a
Gazetteer reporter Mr. Platter
stated that the sale was a decided
success in every particular. It shows
that Texas people understand the
value ot Jersey cattle. As singular
as it may seem the sale demonstrates
the fact that thoroughbred cattle are
more valuable and bring better
money than thoroughbred horses.
Preparations for Memorial Day are be-
ing made as tast as possible, and the
prospect now is that there will be a very
large turnout. Everything is being done
that can be to make it; a memorable oc-
Memorial Sunday, Mav 27, services
will be held - in the McDougall opera
house at 2130-p. m. Rev. W. S. Hills,
oL the Congregational church, will
preach the sermon. Miss Maud Hume
will give recitation entitled, “The
Badge.” Music will be turnished by a
double quartette Lrom musicat numbers
especially gotten up fob-such occasions.
The memorial oration xariLL be pro-
nounced by Gen. J. C. Bigger, Junior
Vice Commander in-Chiet, G. AR., on
Memorial Day, May 30. in the atternoorV>.
This will be held in Forest Park The
ritualistic services of the G. A. R. will
be rendered in Oakwood cemetery. Di-
rectly alter the services in tire Park all
outlying ceinetaries will b- visited by >!e-
tachments and graves dec crated. Any
citizen knowing of a soldier's grave that
Jyks not heretofore been decorated is re-
quested to report the same or see that
the A.merican flag is placeo at the head
of the grave. The Denison Rifles have
accepted invitation to participate. The
public school children will all turn out,
and appropriate exercises will be held in
each school room on the morning of
May 30. Large floats, carrying torty-
five young ladies representing each state
and the Goddess ot Liberty, will appear
in the procession.
It is desired that all public buildings,
business houses and private residences
display the American flag at half mast.
All business men are also requested to
close their places of business, as a token
of respect tor the dead, during the pub-
lic exercises in the Pars.
Arrangements are being perfected tor
splendid music. The committee on
finance will call on citizens for contribu-
tions to defray expenses.

The announcement made by Star &'
Grundstein that they will move to Wood-
ard street should be read by Main street
property owners as a hint that rents
should come down. Our merchants in
all branches of trade have suffered heavi-
ly the past two years because ot the
stringency of the times and the conse-
quent falling oft of trade, while rents
have, in most cases, continued at nearly
the same figures established before the
depression. The landlords who have
been getting generous incomes from old
customers for many years should meet
these men halfway und share the results
of small sales and small profits with them
by making liberal reductions in rent until
business improves. It owners ot business
houses don’t do this they will have no
out* to blame but themselves if others fol-
low fh<$>tur Store to Woodard. The Ga-
zetteer understands if more buildings
are requircaoo this street to meet the de-
mand certain moneyed men stand ready
to build them, and then rent them at fig-
ures that will astonish Main street owners
of business houses.
