April 23, 1891
Dwelling House, Bars and Horses Swept Away, the Horses Killed - Nothing Left in its Track.
Claude, Tex.,   April 18 - No further damages than were reported resulted from the cyclone yesterday, but additional particulars have been obtained.  the cloud formed near the "J.J." headquarters, in the Palo Duro canyon and traveled north, passing two miles west of Claude.  The ground in its course was swept as clean as if a fire had passed over it.  About four miles northwest of Claude it struck Mr. J. C. PATCHING's house.  Two men were staying with him and when the storm burst upon them were busily engaged fixing supper.  One of the men ran out of doors while the other two, PATCHING and CHAMBERLAIN, remained in the house and were picked up and carried off with the house.
PATCHING was found by a neighbor some six or seven yards from the house in an insensible condition, and died to-day at 12 o'clock.
The other part will recover.
PATCHING's horses were killed and carried some four or five hundred yards from the house, and the house and wagon were completely demolished.
Mr. PATCHING was a very popular young man, and his tragic death  has cast a gloom over our town.  His brother, J. A. PATCHING is expected in to-night.
Mrs. NEWBY, living about nine miles south of here, received a telegram from her old home in Illinois, that her husband William NEWBY, supposed to have been killed at the battle of Shiloh, was not dead and had returned to the old home.
Arrested for Embezzlement and Adultery.
A Criminal of the Worst Kind.
DeLeon, Tex., April 18 - Our little city was thrown into a state of excitement yesterday when Professor J. W. STOTTS, principal of our public school, was arrested on a charge of adultery with Mrs. Bettie SAUNDERS.  Professor STOTTS came here last fall and was employed by the trustees as principal of our school.  He brought a woman named Mrs. Bettie SAUNDERS and her little boy with him, claiming that she was his sister and with whom he has been rooming.  Or people thought it was all right, as she was his sister; but it now turns out that she is not.  Hence, the arrest.  Our justice of the peace has letters and telegrams from Mitchell, Ind., charging STOTTS with abandoning his wife and three children, also charging embezzlement, and stating he is the worst kind of criminal.  He will have his examining trial Monday and will also be held for the papers from Indiana.  Our people are very indignant at such treatment.
A Tarrant County Doctor a Little Late at the Altar, But He Gets there All the Same
Lancaster, Tex., April 16 - Dr. TIMS of Arlington and Miss Lena ORR were married this morning at 1:30 a.m. at the residence of the bride's father, Capt. W. A. ORR, a few miles east of here.  The marriage was to have occurred at 8 p.m., but on account of the fire at Dallas the train on which the doctor was depending could not reach the city, and dumped him off at Grand Prairie.  He took in the situation at once and wired a friend at Wilmer to go post haste to Capt. ORR's and make known the reasons for his delay.
Prof. W. T. MANN, who owns a pecan farm on the Concho, says the Coming West, is organizing a company for the purpose of testing pecan culture in the Concho country, to a thorough test.  The culture of pecans as a profitable crop has awakened considerable interest in West Texas of late.
A Young Farmer Uses a Pistol; Shooting Himself Through the Heart
Kyle, Tex., April 19 - John EVANS, a young man about twenty-eight years old, lately from Mississippi, working on a farm near here, committed suicide to-day by shooting himself through the heart with a 38-caliber pistol.  Ill-health is supposed to be the cause.
The Presbyterian people of Pecan Gap an Sunshine in Delta county, are going to unite and put up a handsome church building.
A new Methodist church was dedicated at Houston last Sunday, Rev. Mr. PHILPOT, presiding elder officiating.  It is to be known as the Methodist Tabernacle.
Milford, Ellis county, is discussing the erection of a $10,000 school building.
Sherman Register;  There is now but little doubt that an elegant edifice will replace the one in use at the present time by the Second Baptist congregation of this city.  It will be built upon the present site.
It is said that efforts are being made to raise funds whith which to build another Baptist church in Denison.
Fairfield, April 17 - The Baptist church has been completed and services held several times, yet the church has not been dedicated; but will be as soon as all indebtedness is paid off.
