IN EL PASO
Del Rio, meteropolis; El Paso No. 2.
That is what it is coming to, believe
its men of affairs, and it appears as
though It were more than probable, al
most certain, sure to came. The finish
ing touch yesterday was placed on the
bond which will make Del Rio a, pass
Into Mexico, and in time will bring
many of the good things which have
come to El Paso. And by an uncon
scious fitness, the deal which will make
the new pass city, was made in the old
pass city, El Paso del Norte.
"When the Stllwell special arrived at
the union station, last evening, two
Texans met the railroad financier. They
were: "W. F. Boggess and James Mc
Lymont, representing the Commercial
club of Del Rio. They held contracts
between the community they represent
and the Kansas City, Mexico & Orient
railway. The contract was already sign
ed on the part of the civic representa
tives. It alone waited for the big rail
road builder to place his name below.
"When the Stllwell special train de
parted over the international bridge, the
contract .was clinched, and the future of
Del Rio made certain. The Orient road
will run directly through the border
city on the east, forming a crossing of
trunk lines similar to that at ihe borvder
city of the west. "What the railroads
have done in making El Paso, this city
knows. "What they will do In making
Del Rio, Is almost certain.
Only minor details, drawn up by the
corporation attorneys, were changed on
request of the city. The contract was
for the purchase of $200,000 of bonds by
the community, payable in instalments.
Already the city has raised ihe first two
payments. The total must be paid with
in two years. The road must be built
within three years, but promises of a
much sooner date have been made.
A. E. Stllwell does not make towns
for nothing. He asks that the towns help
to make the railroad. Sq Del Rio fear
ed that the mam line of the new road
might be run a few miles to the east,
and, perhaps, a new town built by the
corporation. Now this fear is removed.
Del Rio will get the road. md with that
will come access into Mexico, and more
Important, a direct route to Kansas
City and the north.
Del Rio'is located on the main line of
the G. H. & S. A. in a territory all its
own; 450 miles from El Paso; 175 miles
San Antonio ISO miles south of San
Angelo. Already the Orient line has
reached the northerly city. The deal
closed in El Paso yesterday will guar
antee the building of the road through
Del Rio. located on the international
line, and joining with the International
of Mexico now as far as Eagle Pass,
60 miles south of Del Rio.
Del Rio now has 10.000 inhabitants,
and is growing steadily. Besides the
premised railroad junction, it has some
things of which even El Paso may not
boast. One of the most beautiful streams
In the southwest is Devil's river. It is
said to have a larger annual flow than
any river in the state, ana1 a flow of
pure spring water, too. It is a small
Niagara, and now furnishes power for
the city and irrigates 10,000 acres of
land In a high state of cultivation. It
can irrigate 200,000 acres of land, of
the Del Rio territory; 200 miles north
and 75 miles both east and west. Also,
there is a spring, a veritable river of
pnre water leaping from the earth.
"Wealthy Mexican landholders have
just put through a deal wherebj 2,000.-
000 acres of land will be placed under
irrigation costing $4,000,000. partly sub
scribed by the Mexican government.
With the agreement between Gen. Lo

a great portion of the land will be col

book of Esther one of the mos tbeautl

book of books.
In the reign of king Ahasuerus, ot
Persia, 473 B. C, his prime minister and
advisor was the Agagite Haman, who
sought to advance himself and ten sons
to the highest position at court, and, be
coming jealous of the honest Jew Mor
decal, the cousin and foster father of
the good queen Esther, began intrigue
and through her father, sought him
self to usurp the throne and give his
sons the command of the rich provinces
held by the Jews.
He made secret preparations and gave
secret orders throughout the land that
the moment he seized the throne in the
king's own province of Shushan, the
Jews in all the provinces should be
Mordecal's triumphal day was- to be
the signal when his death by hanging
at the command of the king, whose
mind Haman sought, to poison against
Mordecai, was to follow.
Queen Esther early learned of the'
intrigue and through her father sought
to foil him and save her people. She In
formed the kins and he Issued a procla

against their enemies." Many of the
inhabitants of the provinces from Ethi

uprising of the Jews became afraid and
embraced the Jewish religion and were
The Great Victory.
On the fatal day the subjects of king
Ahasuerus "stood for their lives against
their enemies." and slaughtered, in the
127 provinces then existing, outside of
the royal province of Shushan. alone
75,000 of their enemies 'but did not
seize their spoils." In the province of
Shushan. on the 13th day of Adar, there
were 300 of the enemy slain, and Ha
man, after being denounced by queen
Esther to the king while the three were
at dinner, was hung as a traitor, though
he begged for his life, even into the
queen's bed room.
Esther then was granted her request
that another 'day, the 14th, be also
given up to the slaughter of the ene
mies of her people, and that the ten
sons of Haman be hung. On this day in
Shushan 500 more of the enemy were
slain and then came the proclamation,

feast was called Purim, from Pur or
lots because Haman had cast the lot
to determine on the extermination of
the Jews, with his friends, who had ad
vised him against his intended treach
ery. The Preservation of Israel.
Many modern critics have called into
doubt the credibility of the book of
Esther on the ground of the extraordin
ary nature of the occurrences recorded.
They have reduced the story of Esther
from the dignity of an historical narra
tive to a mere work of fiction, to a five
act play, written by some Persian Jew
living at the time of Ptolemaic rulers.
"Whether it-is so or not, what Is impos
sible to happen In civilized countries in
modern times may have had some
chance of actual occurrence in an Ori
ental empire under the absolute rule
of a capricious and weak minded des
pot. Similar things have happened
since. If Haman is but the creature of
fiction and romance, history can show
types of Jew hating Haman that were
real incarnations of prejudice and anti
semitism. A Festival of Sprinsr.
Apart from its historical character,
Purim is chiefly and essentially a social
merry making season, grounded upon
the nature of a man, who, after the
dreary winter is over, craves for the
cheerfulness of a brigbter and milder
spring-. The feast is thought to be older
than the characters of Haman and Mor
decai, than "Vashti and Esther. And this
Is evident from the book itself (Es
ther 9:10), that the Purim least is
older than the story, which' la assigned
to 'Jit5' by an unknown author as its
origini There"eems to hav,e been a
Persian fest of spring known by- the
name very similar to that of Purim.

yean Happiness beamed from every
face. Everywhere there was good na-v
true, mirth, frolic and sport and paying
visits from house to house. "And to
the Jews there was light and joy and
gladness and honor."
Nor was forgotten the other precept
of tne bdok of Esther; sending presents
to one another and distributing gifts to
the needy. The rich remembered the
poor and the sorrow -stricken forgot
their pangs. And this is the higher mis

Purim has been universal in our time.
