VICTIM OF ASSAULT
Found in a Box Car at Fort
Worth with His Scull
Martin Wright of this city, a
son of Joe A. Wright, in his nine-
teenth year, was found lying in
a pool of blood in a box car in the
Texas and Pacific yards at Fort
Worth at 10 o’clock Wednesday
morning. A gaping wound in
his forehead accounted for the
bloody pool. A passing pedes-
train chanced to look into the
car and see the young man and
notified the railway people. Con-
cerning his condition we clip the
following from the Record of
yesterday morning: •
"Young Wright was taken to
the Medical College hospital,
where an examination disclosed
that his skull was fractured and
that he was in a precarious con-
dition from concussion of the
The wounded man was un-

sufficiently to tem.’M
talk, it will not be known how
the wound was received.
"Because of the absence of
blood except on the floor of the
car it was the prevailing opinion
of city authorities who went to
the scene, that young Wright
was struck with a blunt instru-
ment in the hands of a tramp,
and that his injury was not caus-
ed by the railroad cars.
"The nature of the wound
made it imperative that an oper-
ation be performed, and^his was
done at 6 o’clock Wednesday af-
ternoon by several local physi-
cians. Late Wednesday night
the young man was in a preca-
rious condition and little hope of
his recovery was expressed by
the hospital attendants.
"The young man came to Fort
Worth about ten days ago from
Stephenville, where he had work-
ed with his father throughout the
summer. All of the money he
had with him waa^spent while
he was here, but Sunday suffi-
cient funds to pay his transpor-
tation home was secured and he
left the city, telling friends that
he was going home. He was not
seen again until Wednesday morn-
ing, when he was found in the
t ox car near the Powell pumping
plant of the city waterworks sys-

Public School Opening.
Race suicide has been discussed
so much that some parts of the
country may be apprehensive of
disastrous results eminating from
that source, but there is no cause
for alarm in Stephenville.
Anyone in attendance upon the
public school opening in this city
Monday morning of this week
will testify to the fact that boys
and girls of all ages are as num-
erous as ever, if not more so, in
this neck of the woods.
Superintendent Sims was visib-
ly well pleased at the presence of
an unusually large number of
parents, as was also every mem-
ber of his well selected faculty.
It was unquestionably the most
propitious start the public school
here has ever had.
Seated on the platform with
the faculty was the entire board
of trustees. Tne chairman of
the board, J. J. Bennett, made
- a few appropriate remarks and~
was followed by President Jen-
nings of Tarleton, and Prof. W.
G. Sears each of whom spoke
briefly and in a way that proves
profitable to schools.
Prof. Sims does not mince
words in telling pupils what the
school expects of them, and by
his candid course of dealing with
them he is well understood by
the six or seven hundred boys
and girls and gets along much
better than would a different
type of man. The Empire be-
leives this will prove to be the
best session our public school has
