He is an old Confederate soldier

lowed a section of land for head-
Horse races, when he was young,
were the favorite sport. The suc-
cessful racer was honored very high-
ly-. If anyone who reads this in the
Echo attended the races when Har-
rison Portwood and Tom Click ran
their houses at Old Tarrant, in the
800-yard race, when Jack Hodge
rode Peetwood’s horse and Jim Gray
rode Tom Click’s, they will remem-
ber the enthusiasm and excitement
when this race occurred. Also Blue
Dick and Shilo. Jack Bachelor and
Bill Gafford ran Shilo and Col.
Mann ran Blue Dick. Russell rode
Blue Dick and Andersson Whit-
stone rode, old Shilo in the quarter
of a mile "race. Russell won a red
flannel suit. The race between Ted-
den Crisp and Ford Faneher in the

John Tutt being the rider.
if anyone was at any of these
races, please answer through the

The premier’s statement was
made to a gathering of representa-

the result of Insistent inquiries.
The minister stated that there
had - been no formal interchanges
between the foreign office and the
ambassador dealing with the matter,

CHATHAM JOINS HUNTERS
Buster Chatham, late of the Dal-
las Steers, a youngster from last
year’s Marlin Bather aggregation,
arrived in the city yesterday and
was out in a Hunter uniform. Chat-
ham made quite a record with the
Marlin team last year and has been
going in splendid form with the
Steers so far this season. Sablosky
is sending the youngster to Brown-
low to be made into a finished in-
fielder and he believes the young-
ster is a find. Chatham, in addition
to his fielding ability, is a good hit-
ter and is exceptionally fast on the
bases. It is probable that Chatham
will break into the Hunter lineup
before the week is over.—Green-

a duet, and Miss Irene Smith gave
a reading, which added to the pleas-
ure of the afternoon. At the close
of the program all enjoyed a social

cious nut cream and wafers.

LITTLE JACK PRIM BURIED
The funeral services at the Meth-
odist chbrch Wednesday afternoon
for little Jack Prim were well at-
tended. The many floral offerings
about the altar and casket testified
though silently, to the deep inter-
est of sympathetic friends.
Rev. J. A. Old, pastor of the
church was in charge of the ser-
vices and delivered a message of
hope and comfort for the bereaved
mother and sorrowing relatives and
friends. Mrs. W. L. Pippen sang a
solo, “Beautiful Isle of Somewhere,”
Even though the little one had
suffered for about six weeks he was
in death as in life beautiful to look
upon. At the conclusion of the pas-
tor’s message friends and acquaint-
ances were given an opportunity to
view for the last time the counten-
ance of little Jack who in his brief
life, had by his cherry manner and
happy smile, made many friends who
on this sad occasion mingled their
tears with those of heart broken
relatives who were left alone for a
few minutes with their dead.
Interment wes made in Rose
Mound cemetery where the little
one’s father was put away a few
weeks ago. Several car loads of
friends and relatives from Sulphur
Springs accompanied the heart-
broken mother on the said Journey
from Sulphur Springs where the
little fellow died, to Commerce
where funeral services were held
and interment made.—Commerce
