Texas Railroad Commission, which
! has been in session since Monday, died
AKIwHliN i suddenly of heart failure in his room
------ I at the Gunter Hotel about 1:40 p. m.
Thursday. Following a recess for
lunch after a morning session, Mr.
i Gilmore left L. A. Gueringcr, chief
engineer of the Railroad Commission,
to go to His room, apparently in the
best of health.
Mr. Gilmore staggered as he reaeh-
j ed the door of of his room and gasp-
j ed to a maid to “get a doctor quick.”
When Dr. 0. L. Nanes arrived a few
minutes later, Mr. Gilmore was lying
to head off a lot of newspaper chat- on the bed, dead. According to Mr.
ter that usually shows up from Mt. Gueringer, Mr. Gilmore had had scv-

Chicago, Oct. 10.—The James boys, j
Frank, 19. and Earl, 15, have discov-
ered that getting into a place to rob
is only half of it. Getting out is the
big thing. *
The youths descended through the
skylight of a Madison Street hard-
ware store and collected several ar-,
tides. When they were ready to*
leave they found all doors locked. It
was impossible to go out by the sky-
Eventually they had to go to the
front door and shout for police to let
them out. An officer rushed up, let
them out, and gave them a nice little
ride to the police station.

means of forged authorization papers.
WITH THE HUNTERS
Out in the woodlands many of the
hunters are gathering as the bright [
autumn days come on, seeking that j
appointment which they have with |
some deer, fox or rabbit. Some of j
us regret to see this wild life destroy-
ed, and would rather see these ani-
mals running around alive. Howev-
er, these wild animals are destructive
and they need to be kept down, or the
farms and gardens of Texas will suf-
fer. , .
The pursuit of these wild creatures
is an instinct, that has persisted since
far before the dawn of history. It
will not be eradicated in our day. It
gives new zest to life for many men
who are tired of the .routine of their
work. The good sportsman favors
strict, obedience to the game laws. If
lie could have his way, no useful Spe-
cies of game in our* section would be
exterminated or seriously reduced in
