WARNING AGAINST TAKERS.
Flimflam mers May Attempt to Use
Name of Press Club.
The Houston Press club has received
Information that two well dressed faker
recently made an effort to work Dallas
with a graft proposition of building a
home for the press club of that city. The
Houston Press olub does not at this time
contemplate a home of Its own and any
approached on that proposition marks the
approacher as a grafter. Should there be
such an attempt on the part of a stranger
the Press club will appreciate a prompt
notification so that the fllraflammers may
be pat to work on the county road as
promptly as possible.

they paid no attention to lilm. TheS"

Seabrook Fisherman Had Trouble
Rescuing Tackle From His
Powerful Winged Catch.
Persons who fish for green trout at this
season of the year meet with experiences
which are considered varied enough for
one sport but Joe Schwander of Bea
brook is the only person who ever fished
for trout who hat his hoojt line and pole
snatched from his grasp and carried
away by a mlschievlous groesblok.
This great lover of piscatorial pastime
met with his odd experience one day dur-
ing the present week while treading the
banks of .Middle bayou In search" of shal-
low places fit to receive his hook.I.uek.
that transient characteristic so well
known among the fishing fraternity had
been fair during the hours that he had
been out and he was on his return home
when he passed a spot famous through-
out the neighborhood for good biting.
On account of the geographical condi-
tion of the spot It Is Impossible for one
on the hank to see the surface of the
water as the view is shut off by a huge
boulder. Hiding behind the rock he -cast
the hook gently Into the tide and quietly
waited for results. Suddenly he felt evi-
dences of a nibble and Jerked the hook
high In the air. Then as If by magic
a large grewsbeck loomed up on the end
of his hook where he had expected to
sen the wiggling trout and Instead of
descending to the ground as a fish would
have done continued to rise taking hook
line and. pole with It and leaving the
surprised fisherman to wonder (t the un-

Parade Proves That Clothes May

That some men can be terribly Igno-

was proven during the Bhrlner's parade.
The crowds were Jamming up to see the
parade pass and most of It waa by and
the long lines of Bhriners the greater
number of whom wore evening clothes
were filing by when a young man who
appeared to be about IS or 10 forced
his way nearly to the front leading by
the hand a younger brother. Han and
boy wore 'that sort of clothes which
stamp the countryman. They looked at
the parade and evidently It did not find
favor In their eyes for slight frowns
clouded thelp faces.
"1 don't see nothln' In this" said the
bov and the elder agreed. Then the boy
went on. "What are they anyway Bud?"
"Shiners" waa Bud's prompt reply.
"Shiners" repeated the lad. "What IS
a Bhlner. What does he shine T Bhoee?"
"No." replied Bud with vast disgust
pointing to the white front of the evening
dress which many wore. "Can't you see
why they are called Bhlners? Don't you
see them white Ironts of them clothes
