Austin has, without doubt, turned out more amateur actors to battle with the cold and unsympathetic world than any city of twice its size in the south.

A Family Row
Officer Corwin last night about 10 o’clock arrested Annie and Mattie Kemp, two colored damsels, on the corner of Red River and Second streets for the reason that they were vigorously engaged in a fistic argument that was liable to prove a serious matter to one or the other. They are mother and daughter and the interesting engagement of last evening gives further endorsement to that trite quotation about the serpent’s tooth and the thankless child. They will have a hearing before the recorder this morning on the charge of fighting without gloves.
