The watermelon crop of Denton
county is unmistakably large, and the
fruit is being carried to Denton in
such quanities that it is becoming a
drug on the market. One shown there
weighed 76% pounds, while those
weighing from 35 to 65 pounds were
frequent. Large ones can be bought
for 5, 10 or 15 cents each.
J. A. Smith, living one mile south
of Denton showed a limb off a Golden
Beauty plum tree, on which the fruit
was clustered almost like grapes. On
the limb two feet in length were no
less than seventy plums, and all the
trees are alike, Mr. Smith says, and
so thick is the fruit they have to be
propped up to keep the weight from
breaking them down.

HIS POCKETS WERE RIFLED.
It Is Believed Several Persons Were Implicated
in the Plot—The Would Be Assassin
Still at Large.
Rennes, Aug. 16.—M. Labori is now
doing so well that the doctors consid-
er him out of danger. He lies on his
back unable to move, but life is re-
turning to the leg which Monday was
thought to be paralyzed. He has no fe-
ver and continues to discuss the trial.
His wife has remained at his bedside
practically ever since he was wound-
ed. Naturallly she is much relieved at
the favorable reports of the doctors,
who hope to see the distinguished law-
yer on his feet before the trial is end-
A correspondent yesterday ob-
tained complete corroboration of the
statement that the pockets of Labori’s
coat were rifled while he was lying on
the ground wounded. Not only were
the pockets of his coat emptied, but an
attempt was made to steal the wallet,
in which were important papers refer-
ring to the court-martial, including
his notes for the cross-examination of
Gen. Mercier. M. Labori has himself
related the incident. He had just fal-
len and saw one or two men run to
his side. One of them said: “His coat
must be taken off. He will be too hot.
The speaker then took the wounded
advocate’s coat off and another man
seized the wallet. M. Labori, however,
retained his presence of mind and re-
fused to allow the wallet to be taken
out of his hands, putting it under his
head for a pillow and holding it with
one hand. The coat was shortly after-
ward put on again.
On arriving at his residence M. La-
bori asked his wife to look into the
pockets and see if their contents were
safe. Mme. Labori found the pockets
completely emptied. Luckily no pa-
pers of importance were in the pock-
ets, which only contained personal let-
ters, including menacing letters re-
ceived on the previous day.
The rifling of the lawyer’s pockets
and the attempt to steal his wallet,
while no effort was made to appropri-
ate his watch or money, are regarded
as clear evidence of a plot in which
several men were implicated. The
man who actually fired the shot, it ap-
pears, was only one' part of the ma-
chinery of the conspirators. la spite of
the extensive search made for the
would-be assassin hfl iS'»dli at large
and the impresssion is gaining ground
that he is being aided by the h.nti-
Dreyfus people. The doctors in attend-
ance upon M. Labori have sent to Paris
for an X-ray apparatus in order to lo-
cate the ball.
Commissioners’ of Agriculture.
Atlanta, Ga., Aug. 16.—Hon. O. B.
Stevens, commissioner of agriculture
of Georgia, yesterday named Sept. 20
as the time of the convention of the
commissioners of agriculture of the
southern states, which will be held in
New Orleans. Gov. Candler of Georgia
has accepted the invitation to respond
to the address of welcome, which will
be delivered by the governor of Louis-
iana. The commissioner of agricul-
ture of the state of Louisiana will be
the temporary chairman.
M. Guerin Defiant.
Paris, Aug. 16.—The warrant for the
arrest of M. Guerin, president of the
Anti-Semite league, who with sympa-
thizers has been barricaded since Sat-
urday last in the offices of the league,
has been placed in the hands of Magis-
trate Fabre. Guerin is now regarded
as an outlaw in a state of rebellion,
since his notification of the issue of
the warrant. He can not claim the
right of a citizen of exemption from
arrest from sunset to sunrise, and the
persons guarding the headquarters of
the league, numbering about forty, are
in the same box. Strict orders have
been given to arrest every one at-
tempting to enter or leave the build-
ing. Three of Guerin’s friends, who
attempted to leave the place yesterday,
were arrested. They all carried six-
chambered revolvers and hatchets, and
what Frenchmen designate as “Amer-
ican knuckle-dusters,” otherwise brass
knuckles. The prefect of the police is
still awraiting orders from the govern-
ment in rfegard to the action to be
taken against Guerin.
The leading Jews in Europe are ar-
ranging for a meeting in Switzerland
to form an international association
for their defense, and to protect the
Jews in France after the Dreyfus
court-martial is ended.
At the annual banquet of the Bona-
partists yesterday, M. Mignot presid-
ing, a telegram from Prince Victor Na-
poleon was read saying he relied on
the various committees to act energet-
ically under the present grave circum-
stances. The reading of the telegram
was greeted with shouts of “Vive
l’empereur!” “Vive Guerin!”
The young royalists' also assembled
at a banquet at St. Maur to-day, in
honor of the name-day of the duchess
of Orleans, Violent attacks were
hiade on the recent measures of the
M. Guerin yesterday evening dis-
played an anti-Semite tricolor flag on
the roof of the anti-Semite headquar-
ters. On the flag was a motto read-
ing “France for Frenchmen.”
M. Waldeck-Rousseau conferred sev-
eral times during the day with M. Le-
pine, the prefect of police, and in con-
sideration of the fact that a recourse
to force in the arrest of M. Guerin
might lead to a useless sacrifice of life,
entailing still graver demonstrations
at the obsequies of the victims, the
premier decided not to expose the life
of any man, soldier, policeman, or fire-
man, but to give M. Guerin a choice
between self-imprisonment and arrest.
State Grange Convenes,
McGregor, Tex., Aug. 16.—The State
Grange met formally in the Knights
of Pythias hall at 10 o’clock yesterday

sprinkling of representatives in at-

Austin, Tex., Aug. 14.—The argu-
ment in the habeas corpus hearing was
concluded by Judge Morris for the
state at 4:30 o’clock Saturday after-
noon, and at about 4:45 Judge Lips-
comb announced that Ed Cain, who is
charged as an accomplice in the
Humphries lynching, would be ad-
mitted to bail in the sum of $2000, and
that the other seven men were re-
manded to jail without bail.

cussion of unimportant routine busi-
ness, a recess was taken until later in
At 3 o’clock an open meeting was
held at the tabernacle. Farmer Shaw,
announced the inability of ex-Gov.
Hogg to attend on account of illness
in his family. He announced that
Hon. John B. Long, ex-congressman
and ex-master of the State Grange,
had been substituted for his friend
Hogg. Mr. Long was given a hearty,
welcome. After a few pleasantries he
made an appeal for the organization
of the farming classes in the south
and west. In the east, the speaker
said, the farmers were well organized.
In the south they are the servants of
others. They are bread-makers, and
not bread-winners or bread-getters,
and it is a misnomer to designate
them as bread-winners.
Farmers’ State Alliance.
Bazette, Tex., Aug. 16.—The
As soon as the argument was con-
cluded the crowd began to leave ths
courtroom, as it had been stated and
generally believed that the judge

two or three days.

charged with killing Constable Rhodes,
was brought into court on ex parte
hearing before Judge Lipscomb, and
by agreement of both counsel for state
and defense, admitted to bail in the
sum of $1500.
A Gomez Demonstration.
Havana, Aug. 16.—At a demonstra-
tion in honor of Gen. Gomez Monday
evening he said he felt abashed that
so large a concourse of people should
come to pay tribute to his poor merits,
as he was only the brother of all Cu-
Senor de la Torre, president of the
Cuban national party, in replying,
“Gen. Gomez is not the brother, but
the father of all Cubans. Gratitude is
the most sublime of national virtues.
Some have tried to quench this feel-
ing, but they have failed. Gen. Gomez
is far above those who are trying to
detract from his fame. They are un-
worthy to kiss the sole of his feet.
Those who censure him are only try-
ing to bring discord among the Cu-
bans. Let them rather proclaim the
union of all Cubans with Maximo Go-
mez as the model.”
Senor Desvernine, secretary of fi-
nance in the governor general’s advi-
sory cabinet, has asked Gen. Brooke
to increase the credit of $50,000 for
public instruction by $15,000, as the
original amount is seen to be insuf-

Waco, Tex., Aug. 14.—To the Board
of Trustees of Baylor university: I
have the honor to acknowledge the re-

elected me by unanimous vote to the
presidency of Baylor university. After
careful consideration of the issues in-
volved, I am impresssed with the con-
viction that it is my duty to accept
this responsible and difficult position.
Baylor university is the oldest in-
stitution for education in Texas. Its
history is interwoven with much that
is most honorable in the history of our
state. Already the leading institution
of the denomination in the southwest,
it gives promise under the blessing of
God of becoming ultimately one of the
strongest universities in the nation.
Whatever its future may be, Baylor
university is consecrated to Christian
education. The higher education
should be dominated by the highest
ideals of the race; these ideals are
those furnished by the Christian re-
In accepting the position, I ask the
cordial sympathy of all friends of ed-

Almighty God, I pledge to Baylor uni-

Cigar Manufacturers Organize.
New York, Aug. 16.—Reports to the
effect that a combination of the lead-
ing cigar manufacturers in Key West,
Tampa and Havana is being organ-
ized, are current in the tobacco trade
in this city. Many of the principal
firms are said to have given options
to the promoters of the scheme, but
as yet no definite plans have been
formulated. It was learned on good
authority yesterday that accountants
are at work on the books of the firms
for which options have been secured,
but considerable difficulty is expected
in bringing about arrangements as to
prices, etc., and in case of satsifacto-
ry arrangement, only leading firms
would be included in the combination,
and scarcely one-half of the options
now secured would be accepted.
Those in charge of the -work expect to
be able to report to the firms already
interested by the end of the month.

Rennes, Aug. 16.—Dreyfus has writ-
ten two letters to M. Labori. The first
on hearing the news of the attempt to

San Antonio, Tex., Aug. 15.—Two at-
tempts were made yesterday morning
between 3 o’clock and daylight to burn
up the Protestant orphans’ home at
West End, with its fifty little orphan
The attempts were carefully planned
and were aimed at a complete destruc-
tion of the building.
It was at 3 o’clock’yesterday raor,
Ing when the people living near the
orphanage were awakened by the cries
of fire, and saw a great sheet of fire
envelop the home.
The smell of kerosene oil pervaded
the air, and the building seemed doom-
With a great effort the flames were
extinguished, and it was found that the
fire had been started on the front gal-
lery, where the flames could be easily
communicated to the interior of the
building through the wooden doors.
Two hours later the heme was again
on fire, this time from an oil-soaked
rag placed under the floor of the build-

The French schooner Pauboto wa3
sunk In a collision.
Denison, Tex., Aug. 16.—A special
from Sterrett, I. T., says:
Monday night just before the south
bound passenger train arrived, three,
masked men entered the depot and or-,
dered Ed and Poke James and Gilbert
Moore, whom they found there, to hold
up their hands.
Mooore escaped out of the back door,
sounded the alarm, got a gun and fired
into the depot.
The men escaped, getting only 30'
cents. A stray bullet passed through
the wall of the house occupied by J. T.
Cutshaw, striking him on the leg, but
only making a blue spot.
The men, judging from their actions,
were old hands at the business, but had
evidently miscalculated the time that
No. 3 was due here. They had evi-
dently intended to hold up the south-
bound Katy train.
Advices from Honolulu say that the
volcanic action of Mauna Loa has en-

A Fatal Duel.
Dallas, Tex., Aug. 14.—A sensation-
al duel occurred in this city Sunday
morning just before daylight, and i(
will be days before Dallas will cease
to discuss it. The duelists were Mount-
ed Officer A. P. Rawlius and Specia..
Policeman Charles A. Daniels. The
weapons were large caliber single ac-
tion six-shooters, and the distnace
was three paces. Food for the leaden
hail both men stood their ground and
“shot it out” to the bitter end. Both
men are dead. Rawlins fell on his
side and then rolled over on his back
to expire in less than ten minutes
without uttering a word. He moved
his lips once or twice in an effort to
speak to his brother, who soon arrived
on the scene, and was holding his
head, but the effort was futile. Dan-
iels dropped his weapon and stagger-
ed off up the street and then returned
to the drug store on the corner, where
he died an hour later, unconscious of
the pitiful moaning and hysterical
weeping of his wife, who had hastened
to his side.
Attacked by Mexicans.
El Paso, Tex., Aug. 15—RomanMiese,
A Mexian who is employed by the Gal-
veston, Harrisburg and San Antonio
railroad at Findlay, Tex., as boss of a
coal gang, had a very narrow escape
from death on Saturday at the hands
of an infuriated mob of Mexicans.
It seems that trouble had been brew-
ing among the men for some time,
which finally culminated in an attack
on him, from the effects of which it
will be some time before he recovers.
Miese was brought here yesterday and
is in a very precarious condition.
