Ducats Outweighed the Deughter.
Farmer James Woolsey of Pratt
county, Kansas, has one of the larg-
est farms in his section of the ceun-
t»y- . .
meat Mrs, Deering, wife ot Louis
Dee ring, who I ves at San Berna-
dina, met the car at Los Angeles
and remained the guest of Mr. and
Mrs. Carver during our stay there.
We are glad to note that Mr, D er-
ing’s health it very much improved.
It will be remembered that be left
here for California in very poor
health some three years ago.
When everyone returned home
that evening (as we all learned to
call our car home) there was noth-
ing but praise on every band of the
delightfnl city; its flowers, its parks,
its many places of amusement, and
most of all its fine climate. Onr
car was placed about goo feet from
the depot la the midst ot a beautiful
flower garden Saturday morning.
August 9th our party divided,
Horan and wife. Moore and wife,
Hotchkiss and wife took the South-
ern Pacific to the beach, and there
boarded a vessel to Cataline Island.
While we did not have the pleasure
of seeing this vessel, bnt from des-
criptions of some of the party it
must be one of the finest that float
the Pacific, having a glass bottom
through which fish could be plsiniy
seen, measuring from one to reveral
yards in length. We forgot how
msny thousand pounds they weigh-
ed. T. E. Horan made several at-
tempts to dive for them. But Mrs.
Horan being of cooler head than
Councilman Tom, tork him in
charge and explained that it was
impossible, as the boat had a glass
bottom, and he would bruise his
cranium it he made many more at-
tempts like that.
We do not remember whether it
was one of the ladies of their party
or some other lady while Over there
that caught a fish weighing 100
pounds. As they told us so many
fish stories we can’t remember them
The rett of our party went to
Santa Monica beach, 20 miles from
Los Angeles. The electric cars run
out there from the city passing
through the Old Soldiers’ Home
and through acres of orange, lemon
and olive orchards, which it would
be impoaaible to desertoe to one
who never aaw them When 1FI ir-
rived at the beach we all took the
opportunity of a plunge in the Pa-
cific, where several of the ladies ot
our party learned to swim as grace-
fully as the hsh at Catalina. On
our return to the citv about 2 o’clock
in the afternoon, after taking in
some other sights we visited the
Chamber of Commerce. There we
met our friend Dr. Terry and spent
two or three hours very pleasantly
in company with him. We also
met Col. De Armand, ex-city attor-
ney of Denison, and several old time
Everybody returned home that
night full of enthusiasm, everyone
trying to outdo the others telling
what they saw or did during the day.
We left Los Angeles Sunday morn-
ing at 7 o’clock, August 10. Our
next stop will be Santa Barbara.
[continued next week.]
Thera it a great deal of complaint
by property owners in Denison re-
garding the way the county collec-
tor ia acting. A number of persons
who have paid their taxes end bold
receipts have been served with cita-
tions notifying them that suits have
been brought against them for de-
linquent taxes. We are personally
cognizant of aeveral cases. Sam
Smith is one that occurs to us. He
is a stone mason and contractor and
was called away from his work and
forced to go to Sherman at a cost to
him of several dollars in expenses
and loss of time, and the only satis-
faction he received when he showed
his receipt was, that it was all a mis-
t*ke. Thera ere numerous esses of*
this kind. We should like to know \
what kind of books our county col- \
lector keeps anyway. There is no |
excuse for such negligence, and J
some one ought to be made to pay J
the sufferers tor the trouble and out- j
lay they are put to on account ot it 1
ODE TUP 10 OALHOMIA.
In our last week’s write-up we
overlooked one point of interest,
that of Langtry station, 335 miles
west of San Antonio, and 388 miles
•aat of El Paso. This is a small
division station, and in the next 73
miles hat an elevation of 1460 teet.
Out of this place we bad two en-
gines pulling our train. This place
ia the home of the celebrated Judge
Roy Bean, the only business man
in the place. His building is a
■mail, rude shack about 14x34 feet,
arid in this be baa his law office,
saloon and billiard ball. At one
end he had a sign, “Saloon, ice-cold
beer, and in the center another sign
which read, “Judge Roy Bean, jus-
tice of the peace, notary public, law
aod order.” West of the Pecas, at
the other end of said billiard ball a
great many people flocked from the
train to the saloon, among them be-
ing tome of our party. One ot
them who bought a small bottle
asked the judge “It this beer cold?”
He answtred gruffly that it ought to
be; ’tit off ot ice, and the party
came out and remarked if it ever
had been on ice it had been off
several hours. We were told
among numerous decisions of this
oil judge, while they were building
the rai’road through there, there
were several hundred Chinamen em-
ployed. A white man in a diffi-
culty killed on: of the Chinamen.
The judge had him airested and
placed under fictitious bond. Tbr
Chinamen raised several hundred
dollars and gave to the judge to
prosecute him. He held his decis-
ion for several weeks and then in-
formed them that he had searched
all lawa and failed to find where it
was any violation for a white man
to kill a Chinaman, and let the man
Another instance was where two
men and their wivea came into hit
office and wanted to be divorced,
each wanting the other’s wife. The
judge decided thsit was sufficient
grounds for a divorce, which he
granted and proceeded to marry
each one to the other’s wife as re-
And still another decision: There
was a man committed suicide by
shooting himself with a pistol. He
was a stranger and had about $So
in money on him. The judge heard
the evidence and decided the man
came to his death by his own hand,
and from the evidence it was a plain
case of violation of the law, and
fined him $75 for carrying a pistol.
We give the above for what it is
worth, although our informant was
one of the officials of the Southern
Pacific, who declared it was all a

busy Sunday at Chattanooga visit-

About 600 delegates have assem-

ing four of them. One will die.
The anthracite mine workers’
strike has entered upon its eight-
eenth week with the lines between
the operators and operatives drawn
almost as tightly as when the sus-
pension was inaugurated on May
13. There were many predictions
that the contest would be over by the
first week in September, but if the
officials of the mine workers’ union
are to be believed, the struggle will
continue tor months unless the coal
companies grant concessions. There
is no likelihood ot a break m the
ranks of the men. President Mitch-
ell of the union maintains that he
knows nothing of a possible early
ending ot the trouble, and says he
knows nothing ot any negotiations
on foot looking to that end.

The sheriff of Dallas managed to
discover a gambling house in opera-

He also hat a daughter.
Last week he traded his daughter
to Willis Rodway, a young mechanic
i rom Illinois.
The trade came about in this way:
Woolsey had 500 acres of his arm
in wheat. Harvest hands were
scarce. The wheat was growing
dead ripe. He looked upon the
fields and then upon his daughter.
The latter was 19 and as beautiful
as she was dutiful. He loved his
daughter. He also loved money, and

claimed : “O, my ducats 1 O, my

The Dallas News is the most sel-
fish and niggardly paper in the state
of Texas. It charges its patrons
more than any other daily in fields
where it can be delivered ahead of
competitors and seldom has a good
word to say for any town thought to
be a rival, present or prospective, of
Dallas. Politically it is unreliable
and anything but democratic. It is
niggardly with the country papers of
the state, and the editor who doesn’t
insert frequent puffs glorifying the
Dallas News, soon finds his paper
cut from the exchange list. The
News is the only paper in the state
that we ever knew to resort to such
littleness. If there was another pa-
per in Dallas like the Houston Post,
there might be hopes of reform in
the News* methods, but there is no
prospect of it being brought about
any other way.
