OFFICIALS TAKE IN STRANGER.
Stray Canine Finds Warm Welcome
at the court House.
A woolv, white mongrel pup, and
as much a mongrel as dogs usually get
before the pound master puts an end
to their really unnecessary lives, has
been adopted by the officials and era
nloves in the county court house. Ac
cording to rule and book a politician
supposed to be devoid of heart and
to have about as much sympathy as a
erman torpedo, so that the case at
hand, one which' has reached to every
corner of the court house, is especial
ly interesting. For two days and two
nights the dog remained on the north
steps of the building, refusing to rec
ognize either hunger or coaxing
enough to lie enticed within those
cold, e:rey walls. First to tnke an in
terest in the pup was Frank Meyers,,
countv assessor; interest enough, in
deed, to force the animal to break its
forty-eight hour fast with good meat
which Mr. Meyers brought from the
butcher 's. During the time the dog had
been on the steps it could have had
nothing to eat. While Mr. Meyers
was getting meat Chester Siefarth, by
some unknown strategy, induced the
dog to go inside Hie building, where
it refused to eat until all spectators
had departed. The entire five pounds
of meat provided by the county as
sessor, was missing the next morning,
but the dog was still on the job. That
was last week, and today the ragged
pup is at borne in the basement, en
joying the scraps from several tables,
including that of Mr. Whitney, the
superintendent of the building. And
evervone in the court house lavishes
attention upon the animal, at the
snrne time wondering "Whose Dog
Are Youf "
Until that question is solved the
animal's source of being, insofar as
rt concerns anyone in the court house.
is interesting. Assessor Mevers, the
original benefactor, has probnlilv most
conectly solved the puzzle. It is pre
sumed that the dog followed its mas
ter to the north steps of the court
house, where it was left to wait. When
the owner had transacted his husine
he thoughtlessly went out the soirtb
door and home. Intelligent enough
to stay where is was put. in contrast
to manv human beings, the dog was
determined to remain until its master
eame out again, and the only differ
ence in its predicament now is that it
is enjoying peace and plenty waiting
for the boss to return. Cntil sneh a
timehe woolv, white dog with a kind
ly eye and a bob tail hob-nobs with its
friends throughout the eourt house.
It pays an occasional social rail to
the various offices, first visiting Mr.
Meyers, who is especially interested
in the dog's commissary, and then it
drops in to see ita later benefactors.
Tom Hooker has a pat for it. while
Mr. Rirhter calls it "'Rover;" Judge
Teal has discovered that the dog ha
no taste for tobacco or bananas;

Dallas Family Made Happy
Thoughtfulness of Friends. '
With Christmas comes another seas
on or it is a feeling when the
brotherhood of man, the beneficient
nature characteristic of most human
beings, expresses itself in doing unto
others those little things that make
the heart feel bigger, whet your appe
tite, and gives you a feeling of satis
faction with all things and people.
Coldly put, this is charity. But in
some givers the action is not inspired
by charity, but by the knowledge that
they are doing to their brother or sis
ter as they would have them do unto
them. A case 'that demanded charity,
but which received rather than that
this spirited aid, as from brother to
brother, or sister to sister; a little
home in southeast Dallas where sick
ness, and a combination of other ad
versities, has conspired to level a
large family to a state of actual want,
was brought to the attention of sever
al of the brotherhood early in the
week. Richard Reiman, with a wife
and five children, had been out of
employment for a long time, and the
bread in the larder had become so
nearly exhausted that a bed-ridden
child was not being properly nourished.
Mr. Reiman was taken to the hos
pital early in the week with typhoid
fever. The ladies of the Needle Guild
investigated the case, and though it
was an unfortunate one it was not or
the charity kind. Mr. Reiman. when
able, is a good and willing worker.
But the ladies were more than pleas
ed to furnish the necessary clothing.
Henry Serr canvassed among the mer
chants in the city and their donations.
when turned over to the Needle Guild,
presented a remarkable Christmas for
the unfortunate family. There were
$24 in cash, two sacks of flour, do
nated by a traveling salesman, who
heard of the case, one sack of pota
toes, five pairs of shoes, and a great
collection of meats and groceries with
orders for more. Thus will this fam
ily be able to return thanks for a
bountiful Christmas season. It took
Mr. Serr only a short time to collect
the things he turned over to the la
dies. Mr. Reiman will soon be about
again and can undertake the earning
ot the livelihood the iarmly enjoyed
before adversity visited it.
Wait For the Date.
Have yon: seen the list of bargains
that the Dallas Grocery company is
going to offer for next Friday and
Saturday, the 17th, and 18th. This
is- your opportunity to get your
"eats" cheap or to get your wife a
set of dishes for Christmas. Don't
forget the time, the place, or the

cessors to Simonton & Scott.
Mrs. Trommel to Speak.
The Civic League club of IndeDen-
dence will be entertained this after
noon at the Methodist church in that
city by Mrs. Trammel of Salem, who
will deliver a talk on "General Club
Work." The meeting and lecture
will proceed a general reception.
Richard Madison, for many years
a resident of Dallas, where he was
in business, and whose home is at In
dependence, is reported to be veryill
at a Salem hospital. Friends here
are doubtful as to whether or not Mr.
Madison will recover.
Samuel Orr, father of Sheriff, John
W. Orr, and a resident of Polk countv
for forty years, was in Dallas during
tne latter days ot last week greeting
old friends, of which he has many.
"The Rose Girl" and "The Sweetest
Girl I Know."'
Have you seen them in our show
windows? If so you surely realize
that I have made a special effort to
completely dwarf anything heretofore
attempted in JJnllas in the way ot
fine art calendars. "The Rose Girl,"
"A perfect woman, nobly planned, to
warn, to comfort and command. And
yet a spirit still and bright, with
something of an angel light." This
is the finest art calendar by long
long odds ever seen in Dallas. I have
a very limited number of them, and
you will be tortunate indeed if you
secure one. Because of the high cost
of this particular calendar I cannot
give them away after the manner us
ually followed, but here is the plan
by which you may be sure of one:
If your purchases at this store be
tween now and January 1st, 1916,
amount in the aggregate to $15.00,
one of them will be reserved for vou.
"The Sweetest Girl I Know," a
beautiful water-color production is
a .finer art calendar than ever before
given away in this city. To secure
one of these you must come- to the
store between now and December 2.5
and register your name, and the cal
endar will be given to you when you
call any time after the first of Janu
ary, 1916. Remember, however, that
they will be given in the order of reg
istration until the supply is exhaust
ed'. When this happens, those who
have registered will receive a Bmall
size "Rose Girl." You must regis
ter for yourself. "By proxy " will not
secure the reservation of a calendar.
In conclusion concerning the cal
endars, i am very happy to give a
fine calendar to the good people who
have been my patrons during the past
year, but I am not extremely anxious
to give out hne calendars to those
whose only interest in this store or
myself is limited to the receipt of an
art calendar, and who never cast their
shadow in the door until calendar
time comes again. Of course you are
not one of that kind, but you know
of course there are a few in Dallas
who feel that way about it.
I sincerely thank the many friends
and patrons for the support given me
in the past, and as the last sound of
the twelfth stroke of the clock dies
trembling away on the cold, clear mid
night air, as the old year flees into
the fastnesses of eternity before the
eager footsteps of the new, may there
dawn for you a year of joy and!
thanksgiving, health and happiness:
prosperity and peace.
