"Save The Babies"
Hot sultry summer is coming with its awful
infant mortality. "Save the Babies" is the battle
cry in El Paso at the present time in the struggle to
save the delicate little lives of El Paso's future men
and women. Pure, wholesome milk, equally pure
ice and careful nursing will save the little ones dur-
i ing the coming summer.
As important as the campaign for pure milk and
pure ice for the little folks is, the crusade for pure
foods for the grownups. Diet has everything to do
with health in hot weather and in this crusade we
lead, with the only sanitary market in the southwest
where it is possible to have perfect sanitary condi
tions prevailing constantly, a refrigeration plant to
keep the meats cool and fresh, hermetically sealed
refrigerator cases to exclude the dust and germs, and
make our market the home of pure food.
Yet in spite of these sanitary conditions our
meats cost no more than the unprotected kinds.
Choice cuts from corn fed cattle only is offered to
our patrons. We insure your health during the sum
mer months by supplying only tender, wholesome
meats. The home of pure food

(From The New Tork firanh ?.-"-
' "Once in two or three months is as
often as it is advlsab-le to wash the

rubbing, drying and rinsing, .together
with the action of the alkali in the

"Wholesalers were urged -to protect
the retail grocers instead of allowing a
trade discount to restaurants, hotels,
saloons, and boarding houses. It was
declared that under the present ar
rangements., restaurants and boarding
houses can buy their supplies at whole
sale on as good terms as the grocers,
and such an arrangement was voted to
be unfair to the regular dealers who
have large sums invested in the busi
ness. "Wholesale produce houses were asked
to give better treatment to grocers. It
was stated tha vegetable and fruit

dealers, and urge them to protect the

mittee was: D. H. Griffith, W. H. Ho

It was asserted that the association
is in no sense a combination and that
no raise in prices to the consumers is

TOO MUCH WATER
irrigationist From Barstow
Says Much Land Is
Watered Too Often.
Not content with 2:!flrst prizes, seven
second prizes and favorable mentions
galore, the Briggs irrigation system,
of Barstow is coming to the second
annual El Paso Fair and Exposition
with an exhibit of alfalfa that will
make the hay growers of this section
sit up and rub their eyes. That is
what S. V. Briggs, -Vhe man behind
the Briggs system, says. He Is In El
Paso this week.
From the same 20 acre tract upon
which was grown the prize winning
forage crop last year, Mr. .Briggs ex
pects to send six cuttings oz select hay
to the fair, and he says if the fair is
as late In the fall as it was last year,
he will have seven cuttings on exhi
bition. On April 17 the first cutting
was made from this tract of 20 acres,
which is farmed by Isham "Wright, but
is a part of the Brings system, and the
result was 400 bales weighing be
tween 12 and 13 tons. This was sold at
Pecos last week for $22 a ton.
There Is a reason for these splendid
crops, Mr. Briggs says. His text on
irrigation Is confined to -the one agri
cultural epigram, "use the least pos
sible quantity of water on the land. If
an excess of water is used, the water
sinks to the drainage level, if there Is
drainage on the land, and the fertility
of the soil, which rightfully belongs to
the crop, is carried off- in solution.
j If there Is no drainage the water sours.
the land and makes it cold and unpro
ductive. This is' shown by the con
dition of the cotton crops in the Peqos
valley. Cotton on our land Is looking
fine, while in some parts of our coun
try It is not yet up, as there wtis too
much water put on It."
Mr. Briggs says the fruit crop Is
going to be heavy in the Pecos val
ley and that the peach crop Is looking:
particularly fine. This Is good news
4this section since the reports from
the north and east show that the Mich
igan and other northern peach crops
are almost a total loss because of he
cold. There are 300 acres in peaches
In the valley, Mr. Briggs says.

SALE OF CINCO
DE MAYO MINE
A. J. King and Associates
Buy Rich Property
Down in Sonora.
"At last after a long and patient wait
of several years I have got once more
the great Cinco de Mayo mine from
which same ten years ago I. took out
$60 000 worth of silver," said A. J.
King last night in the St. Regis. "Many
tons of the ore I itook out ran 12,000
ounces silver a ton, ana one ton ran
21,000 ounces. I kept a constant line of
pack mules hauling the sacked ore over
the high Sierra Madre from the west
side down to the valley to the east and
hauled it thence In wagons 75 miles
to Casas Grandes for shipment by rail
"to the El Paso smelter. Nothing in those
days would pay that ran less than $100
a ton. Now conditions are all changed
and the ore can now be hauled by wagon
only 28 miles down to Ysabel on the
Nacozari railroad and snipped through
Douglas to El Paso at a nominal cost,
less than $40 a ton."
Mr. King, VT. L. Rynerson and some
associates have just returned from Her
mosillo, Sonora, where they have been
for a week with Col. Francisco Garcia
and his co-owners, who executed the
legal documents for the sale of the min
ing properties to the new company.
The consideration for the mine is
$500,000. The properties consist of 16
mines, the leading one being the Cinco
de Mayo and cover about 650 acres
of ground, at Pilares de Teras, three
miles due north of the El Tlgre mine, in
