MRS. DAVY CROCKETT
The widow of Davy Crockett,
the Alamo hero, died in Hood
county in 1860 and the remains,
were buried in the Acton ceme-
tery, where they have reposed
through 50 years. Crocketts
youngest son, Robert Crockett,
and also his wife, father and
mother of Mrs. T. H. Hiner of
Granbury.are also buried in the
same cemetery. A bill is now
before the legislature, and Hon.
Jess Baker expects to be able to
secure final passage of same,
favorable report having already
been made, to appropriate $2000
for the erection of a suitable
monument at the grave of Mrs.
P. & O. LINE
At the pfesent time the grave I
is marked by a native limestone
slab which bears these words:
“Sacred to the mo— of Elizabeth
Crockett was born May 22, 1788,
Died Jan. 81, 1860, Aged 72 years
Beneath this Tomb Layes the
widow of Col. Davy Crockett
who fell at the Alamo.”
At the Methodist parsonage in
this city at nine o’clock last Sat-
urday night, Miss Linnie Wood
was united in marriage to Mr.
Marion Hall, of Bluff Dale, Rev.
Ernest L. Lloyd officiating. For
the past nine months Miss Wood
has been one of the popular sales-
ladies for the dry goods establish-
ment of John Lewis, and pre-
viously held a similar position
with Higginbotham Bros. Her
marriage was a complete surprise
both to her employer and her
numerous friends, their first
intimation of the contemplated
step having come at seven o'clock
Saturday afternoon when she
asked for a settlement in full and
gave her reasons therefor. They
left immediately for Marietta,
Oklahoma, where Mr. Hall has
arranged to engage in the drug
business.— Dublin Telephone of

CALL AND EXAM-
produced by the farmers of 1
Texas during the year 1911, has!
met with hearty response, and
although it has been less than
thirty days since this proposition
was made public, contestants
gives his age as seventy-eight.
To Our Exchanges.
The Empire^ failure to go to
its valued exchanges last week
have already entered from thirty- was due to the fact that we made
one counties, as follows: Baylor, > a miscount and not only lacked
Bell, Collin, Coleman, Cooke, J papers for the exchange galley,
Cags, Clay, Dallas, Erath, East- but had to miss a few names of
land, Fannin, Ford, Falls, Fay-
ette, Gonzales, Grayson, Harri-
son, Hamilton, Hopkins, Hill,
Hunt, Lavaca, Limestone. Mc-
Lennan, Palo Pinto, Parker,
Smith, Tarrant, Van Zandt,
Williamson and Rice.
One of the contestants is a
woman, seventy years of age,
who lives in Lavaca County;
subscribers out of the State. We
feel that we get so much the best
of the bargain on the exchange
propositions: is why the explana-
tion is offered, and not because
we entertain the slightest idea
that a serious setback to any
brother pencil-pusher was occas-
ioned by the failure of the Em-
pire to reach his desk.
The Fair Ground buildings,
Cobleskill, N. Y., were painted
Devoe last year.
Two other paint agents said
the job would take 150'gallons
(their price was 15 cents less a
Devoe agent said not over 125.
It took 115. Saved 'em at
least $140 on paint and labor.
The American House, Tanners-
ville, N. Y.,, was painted two
coats last year; not Devoe.
Mr. Charles Haner, across the
street, put on one coat Devoe.
Mr. Wiltse (American House)
is sorry he didn’t paint .Devoe.
Haner’s one coat was better than
