Boyd Hraselton Iniprtning.
Dr. B. F. Braselton received a card
from the sanitarium physician at Fort
Worth, at which Bovd, his son, re-
cently underwent an'operation, which
stated that Boyd was getting along
as well and really better than was
expected, his temperature and pulse
being normal. It will be remembered
that some weeks ago Boyd was taken
to Fort Worth, where he underwent
a very difficult operation, and It is
with pleasure that his mfcy friends
learn that he is getting along So nice-
Old Team Taken to Fort Worth.
The team which has been used i»
j the Are department for the past sis
or seven years, and which were re-
placed recently with a much younger
team, were taken to Fort Worth Wed-
nesday, along with the extra horse,
which has been required at the sta-
tion fer some time. They will be sold
as soon as a buyer can be found for
them. Howard Potter, who for the
jiast several years has been taking
care of this team, is almost heart-
broken at having to give them tip, as
he has been so intimately associated
with them both night and day, and
while he realized the necessity of re-
placing them with a new team, still
it will be some time before the new
team will have gained the affection
which was held lor the old one.

Small Blaze Wednesday.
Wednesday afternoon about 4:30
o'clock the tire department was called
out to extinguish a blaze at the home
of I)r. R. H. Ferry on Bois d’Arc
street. The grass In the back of the lot
caught fire, presumably from sparks
from a passing Santa Fe engine, and
had it not been for the timely arri-
val of the department, quite a disas-
trous fire would have been the result.
As It was, but very slight damage
was done. The new fire team made
the run. and Driver Howard Potter
aaid they did well, although at one
time were rather hard to manage in
making a turn Into a side street, com-
ing near ditching the wagon. Air.
Potter said he was well pleased with
the new team, and thought that with

MRS. H. C. SHROPSHIRE,
Deserted by Mother.
Wednesday night, a woman with a
young baby, seemingly about three
weeks old, who came in from Fort
Worth on the 7 o'clock motor car,
went to the Patterson hotel and se-
cured a room for the night, and said
that she would want breakfast, and
was on her way to Graford, and would
leave on the Thursday morning train
for that place. This was nothing un-
usual, however, and nothing was
thought of the matter until Thursday
morning,' when Airs. Patterson went
to the room to call her for breakfast,
and found that the bed had not been
slept in by the woman, but the baby
was still there, cold and hungry. The
whereabouts of the woman has not yet
been learned. Mrs. Patterson said
that the baby had cried all night,'bhU
she supposed its mother was with it,
and did not go to see about it. The
little baby girl of but a few weeks old
was taken by the kind hearted Mrs.
Patterson to the fire and given some-
thing to eat, and warmed, and when
a Herald representative went down
to see the mite of a child-waif, it was
sleeping sweetly and unconsciously
of the terrible crime committed by
its mother. It seemed to be a bright
and pretty child, and Airs. Patterson
said that if it were possible she would
keep it. No note’ or clothing, other
than what the child had on was left
behind by the inhuman mother, and
some way will have to be provided
for its comfort if Mrs. Patterson de-
cides to not take it in charge. The
officers were notified but up to going
to press no trace of the woman had
been found. This is a good subject
for the charity association, and it is
hoped they will interest themselves
in the case and see that the little waif
is provided with a good home,

Meeting of XXth Century Club.
Mrs. Q. C. Massey was hostess to
the XXth Century Club Wednesday
afternoon at her home on East Lee
Avenue, with a large attendance of
the Home Science and Literature De-
The topic fbr th6 occasion was “The
Cup that Cheers, but not Inebriates,”
and the roll call was answered by
your favorite blend of tea.
Airs. L. Siess read a paper on “Easy-
Home Flood Tests,” after which Airs.
T. R. Erwin gave a very practical talk
on “The Use and Care of Milk.”
"The Refrigerator as a Germ Cen-
ter” was thoroughly discussed by all,
with Mrs. H. O. Barthold as leader in
the war on the ever present germ'.
How to Use Canned Goods" was a
topic of much interest to the house-
wives and was made a very instruc.
live lesson by Airs. J. D. Doughty as
the leader of the informal talk which
Mrs. Oscar Barthold, the new par-
liamentarian elected to fill the place
of Airs. B. G. Rid well, gave a most in-
teresting drill on that all-important
subject to club women.
The program walfbrought to a hap-
py close by a selected reading gra-
ciously given by Miss Patti Dickey,
the subject being “The Materialisation
A social hour followed, during
which the charming hostess, assisted
by .Misses Annie Bloom and Patti
Dickey, dispensed the "cup that
cheers” with various additions and
Mrs. Leon Siess was elected secre-
tary to fill the place of Mrs. J. D.
Doughty, who is expecting to be ab-
sent the greater part of the winter,
Mra. Robt. Lowe agreeing to act pro
tem until January, when Afra. Siess
will be at leisure to take up the du-
de* of the office.
Thus closed one of the most enjoy-
able club meetings of* the season,
practically the entire membership of
the department being present with the
exception of a few who were unavoid-
ably detained bat who sent regrets.
