INQ ALFONSO XIII. of Spain is again In trouble. The most serious
revolts that he has had to face recently broke out In various parts
of his kingdom, and martial taw was declared in several towns. The
king himself took charge of the military operations and ordered his
officers to suppress the rioters even if they had to destroy a few towns. King
Alfonso has had tittle real peace since he was born. His father died six
months before his birth, so he came into the world a king, and he has "ruled"
ever since May 17, 1886, when he flrst saw the light He was still a boy
when his nation was engaged In war with the United States, which cost Spain
Its colonial possessions In two hemispheres. This disastrous war for a time
threatened to terminate the reign of Alfonso. In recent years Alfonso has
Increased his popularity by his democratic ways and by his devotion to his
wife, the beautiful Princess Victoria Eugenie, a cousin of King George V. of
England, and their two sons and one daughter. King Alfonso has never
been strong physically, and be has devoted much of his time to outdoor life
because of his health.

be in every sense a credit to Dallas
and Polk county, as well as to ourselves.

ber of smaller rooms for various
necessary purposes will be , located
on the first and second stories. Three
hundred thousand brick and ten car
loads of gravel have been required
in the construction.
Two Dallas mothers are worrying
and grieving for sons who have left
home to see the world and have neg
lected to send back word that they
are all right. The latest disappear
ance was that of Howard Day, son
of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Day, who has
been gone since last Sunday after
noon. Search has been made for him
in Portland and Salem by his broth
er, I'.arl, but without results, if rom
til tenor of his inquiries made some
,eeks before his departure it is
thought that he is on his way to visit
an aunt in Los Angeles, California.
Although he is but 17 years old, ho
is six feet in height and is able to
take care of himself, but that does
not lessen the mother's anxiety.
No trace has been found of Alfred
Fuller, who has been away from his
home here since August 1"). He is
the son of Mrs. Clara Fuller and is
but 13 years old. The police of Port
land and other places have beeen no
tified to be on the lookout for him,
but all to no purpose. He left here
to pick hops in a yard three miles
south of Salem in Marion county,
and when leaving there said he was
on his way to the coast. Mrs. Ful
ler is naturally much alarmed over
his continued absence, and will glad
ly welcome news concerning him.

When Captain Walter L. Tooze
was preparing to move his law office
from the Wilson building to the new
Dallas National Bank building a few
days ago, he found stowed away 'in
an unfrequented corner of a desk,
a small relic in the shajw of a copy
of the constitution and by-laws of
"Terror Engine Company No. 1" of
the old volunteer tire department
which guarded the city 28 years ago.
The constitution, it is shown, was
adopted June 15, 1883, and the lit
tle booklet was printed by Glass &
Prudhomme in Dallas in 1885.
A glance at the membership roll
will reveal many familiar names and
recall many interesting things in the
life of the city when it was young.
Of the officers, all are living and with
two exceptions, are resident of Dal
