The party was on the way from El

horses could be turned back.
Dr. I. G. Gaal, of the county hos
pital, came out to the scene of the
accident and attended to the Injured
women, after which they were taken to
their homes at the smelter.
There seems to be no danger of any
of the Injured women dying but the
extent of their injuries Is hardly known
end some may be more seriously injur
ed internally than has yet been ascer
tained. Witnesses to the accident say the
place where the accident occurred Is
a dangerous spot, and the obstructing
hill should be cut down or some warn
ing given of the approach of trains.

he has a boll on his neck. Isn't It
strange how prone we are to laugh at
the man who suffers with a boll?
Some or the boys say he got too stingy
to buy collar buttons and is raising

has done something which makes him
ashamed to look his fellow man in me

A Tribute to Major Hammett.
"ir the people or El Paso elect Mr.
Hammett mayor they will have the
most progressive and energetic man
that I know or In this country."
So spoke L. C. Nelson or St. Loul:-.
Mr. Nelson was tor many years the
president or the Central National bank
of St. Louis until his private interests
required so much of his time he was
compelled to retire from the banking
business. He is a millionaire with ex
tensive business interests in St. Louis
and in many parts or this country. He
and Mr. Hammett have been Intimate
friends tor many years, and to The
Hear 1I reporter he paid the man who
achieved such a signal triumph at last
night's primaries, a most glowing trib
ute. "I cannot say anything to strong for
Major Hammett." he said. "I have
known him for twenty-five years dur
ing his residence In St, I .on In. I have
had business dealings with him to the
extent of n million dollars with only a
veilial contract back of It. and I never
had a dlragreemfnt or difficulty with
him In my life. He was always right
up and square to the mark. I know
him hetw r than anyone In Kl Puso ran
possibly know him and In my opinion
he Is today doing more for Kl Pnao
