The Favorite Resort.
The Emporium Theatorium, so suc
cessfully conducted by W. G. Bair and
Robt. Green continues to grow in favor
with the public, who know the watch
fulness of the proprietors will prevent
the production of anything objection
able, thereby making the place per
fectly safe for ladies or children. The
management thoroughly renovated this
popular resort for the winter attrac
tions. They have eliminated the
vaudeville attractions and increased
the pictures, a change we believe more
to the liking of their patrons Miss
Zetta Wells, daughter of Mrs. E. T.
Wells, the pianist, renders a popular
eong nightly, which is always well re
ceived. The Theatorium has become
so closely allied with our people that
almost, everybody is sure to attend
nightly. The management are to be
congratulated upon the efficient man
ner they handle the large number of
patrons nightly, ft is firmly rooted

i "A heart-broken bride of two weeks
| sobs away the hours at her home in
j Austin, while her young husband, a
j prisoner in the county jail here, awaits
1 the disposition of his case by the Court
lon charge of peculiar robbery. By his
I own confession the thefts stretche d
I over a period of several months, and
j were for the purpose of affording his
| bride-to-be a good time, for with a por
! tion of the money taken he bought
j household goods for their nesv home,
j This they occupied just one week,
I when the bauble broke and the young
wife saw her boy husband led away a
prisoner by Constable Baker, while
! she went back to her parents' home to
; prepare to have her marriage with the
young man annulled.
For a year there had been no morn
devoted lover in Austin than was
George Resser to Miss Mary A. Moyer.
Reeser is good-looking, dressed nicely
and appeared to have all the money
necessary to live without working a
great deal. He explained that he had
just come into a snug sum of money
through the death of an uncle.
Nothing was too good for his pretty
sweetheart, one of the most popular
girls in Austin, and the daughter of
highly-respected people. She had car
riage and autompbile rides and attend
ed all the picnics and festivals.
For a year or more young Resser had
made his home with Mr. and Mrs. Sam
nel Clary, an aged couple of Austin,
who found their livelihood in a truck
patch, near their home, added to a
small pensian which Mr. Clary receives,
he being a veteran of the civil war.
The Clarys were saving of their little
fund, and though they had saved near
ly S4OO, they would not trust it in a
bank, but kept it in a box in a trunk.
From there all but §'2o was stolen, and
Resser has confessed the ingratis crime.

i I ever sold them a share of get-rich

! John K. Tener, the Republican eon
didate for governor, made the state
ment quoted above. It was received
with laud applause. The manner of
his saying it carried the conviction
that he was uttering the truth. The
quotation is from the preface to his
reading of the statement in which he
emphatically denies the charges made
against his business record. He has
employed able lawyers in Pittsburgh
and Philadelphia to look after his in
terests. His traducers are to hear
more from him. Before reading the
statement Mr Tener said:

acknowledge my membership in that
organization and to say that I am
prouder of it than I ever was before.
STRENUOUS DENIAL OF CHARGES.
"You have also read recently of the
charge which connects me with an al
leged swindling concern. I want to
say to you that i never swindled any
body in my life. There is not a man,
woman or child in the United States
who dares say that I ever sold them a
a sharo of a get-rich-quick company
stock I want to make answer to the
charge and I want to make it empha
tic, and in order that I make no mis
take I am going to read the statement
which I dictated yesterday."

accredited representatives of the peo
ple and I do not propose to withdraw
from this ticket for any man or any
