A Southwestern Type
Temple Houston, youngest son of General Sam Houston, who may be called the creator of the republic of Texas, has
recently died in Oklahoma. Temple Houston was one of the strange, abnormal characters that achieve notoriety
on the frontier. He did not like to be referred to as the son of Sam Houston, preferring to have a reputation
of his own, and he won it. He was abnormal in his physical proportions, in his mental traits and in his notions
of becoming attire. He had a talent, a considerable acquaintance with books, a love for liquor and for Tabasco
sauce, and was a compound of feminine sensitiveness and brawling habits. By profession he was a lawyer, and
a successful one in the courts of the Southwest. He had been a Senator in Texas, and was a fervid, imaginative
orator. His courage was unquestioned, and he had killed his man in a saloon fight. He was one of those
the true tale of whose lives seems stranger than fiction. He died when 45 years old of a stomach trouble
cause by intemperance.
