Extracted from The Dallas Morning News
and The Dallas Times Herald.
The following are extracts from The Dallas
Morning News and The Dallas Times Herald newspapers. They mention many names and events in Texas and I find them to be
interesting reading if you are interested in Texas history. Information
found in these articles can give some insight into what our Texas ancestors
endured, the things that were weighing on their minds and what they were
concerned about when they settled in Texas. Spelling has been left as
found in the articles.

Indians at the Inauguration.
It is proposed to bring some blanket Indians to Washington
to take part in the inauguration of the great father March 4. The
officers of the inaugural committee are in consultation with the secretary
of the interior, and he will probably consent to have representatives of
several tribes brought to Washington for the purpose. If Secretary
Francis consents, an effort will be made to secure 40 or 50 Sioux, Apaches
and Shoshones. They will be brought to Washington at the expense of
the government and after the inauguration ceremonies will be returned to
their reservations. They will not dance at the inauguration ball.
