A Texas Department of Water representative stopped at a ranch and talked with an old rancher. He told the rancher, I need to inspect your ranch for your water allocation.
The old rancher said, Okay, but dont go in that field over there.
The Water representative said, Mister, I have the authority of the Federal Government with me. See this card? This card means I am allowed to go WHEREVER I WISH on any agricultural land. No questions asked or answered. Have I made myself clear? Do you understand?
The old rancher nodded politely and went about his chores.
Later, the old rancher heard loud screams and saw the Water Rep running for the fence and close behind was the ranchers bull. The bull was gaining on the Water Rep with every step.
The Rep was clearly terrified, so the old rancher immediately ran to the fence and shouted out.....
"Your card! Show him your card!"
"Quo Vadis" which will be produced at the Grand opera house on next Saturday night is one of the most pronounced popular successes of the year. Its combination of dramatic and scenic merit gives it an unusual title to consideration. It has been said that Wilson Barrett got the idea for his melodrama from the book, "Quo Vadis." If he did not he certainly cam as near to certain of its episodes as accident ever allows.
The discovery by the Roman lover of the Christian girl in the house of the partriarch to whom she had fled for refuge and the arena scene itself have the look of being something more than coincidences, though the giant was left out of "The Sign of the Cross" and the struggle between Ursus and the bull was not given. The play "Quo Vadis" has dared a parallel with the Barrett production. The indication that comparison is not feared is not to be wondered at.
