FREE BRIDGE TO MEXICO
"It's a bum breeze that blows no guy
good." Since the Santa Fe street bridge
accident, foot passengers between El
Paso and Juarez and vice versa, have
been traveling across th ruins of the
SantaFe bridge free of charge. For
merly it required two and and one-half
cents rrold to cross the bridge either
way. Now it Is possible to cross the river
as many times as one desires for the
wear and tear on the shoe leather in
volved. Many of the foot travelers pre
fer the drv river bed to the bridge
which proved false lat Saturday. But
the collector who sits in the little
chicken coop house at the Mexican end
of the crippled bridge, no longer col
lects his centavos from the travelers.
