New Fall Styles
Each day adds to our display of
Men's Fall Suits. Though a fall
suit is not needed as yet, still it is
always a good plan to select a suit a
little ahead of time, while the va
riety of choice is greatest. We
carry the famous
"Schloss Bros." Clothing
Some tailors can make clothes for
young men, some for older men,
and some for elderly men. Schloss
Bros, make clothes for all men.
You will find in our lines a suit that
pleases you in cut, pattern and col
or, and that fits you as if it had
been made to your measure.
Speaking of color that is the most
noticeable thing about the new
suits, the new colors that have been
put out, especially the brown mix
tures. FAL PURNISHIrTS-Displays
of fall furnishings are almost as in
teresting as the showing of fall
suits. Consider your needs
whether for hat, hose, shoes, shirts,
neckwear, fall weight underwear
and supply them now, and here.
The matched hose-and-neckwear
sets will interest you.
Bring the Boys
With the opening of school but lit
tle more than a week away, the
boy's school outfit must be consid
ered. STowadays, it is a simple
matter to fit out a lad everything
"from the skin out" can be bought
ready to put on all that is neces
sary is a little care in the selection.
The boy's suit is perhaps first in
importance. The boy wants a suit
that is comfortable and "feels
good;"Jhis mother wants him to
have a stylish', good-looking suit,
and yet one that is stout and ser
viceable. Bring the boy here. We
guarantee to satisfy all require
ments. Well provide him with .a
well-fitting, comfortable suit -that
looks well and will wear equally as
well. The seams of our suits don't
rip easily, and the buttons stay on.
Once your boy has worn a Bazaar
suit, neither he nor you will be sat
isfied with any other.
Though the suit is the most important part of the
boy's school wardrobe, -there are other things he
must have. We offer you uneqiniled selections in
Boys' Sbirts and Blouses,. . .
Boys' Hats and Caps,
Boys' Shoes, , ''
And, in short, everything that a boy wears. Ba
zaar prices are just as attractive as Bazaar clothes

After dreadful privations they catch
the boat at Kadiak and are soon en

"Well,1 what of it? What has all that

"Listen! You want to marry the
daughter of the greatest trust builder
in the country, and he doesn't want
you for a son-in-law. You undertake
an enterprise which seriously threatens
his financial interests, and if successful
in that you could defy his opposition
in the other matter. Now, all goes
well until he learns of your plans,
then he strikes with his own weapons.
A word here and there, a hint to the
banks, and your fine castle comes tum

Boyd turned, to observe a rat faced
fellow across the way, evidently bound'
for the Tacoma boat
"Is he following us?"
"I see him everywhere I go."
Boyd's face clouded angrily, at which
Cherry exclaimed. "Now, for heaven's
sake, don't mimic Big George or we'll
never learn anything."
"I won't stand for'a spy," he growl
ed. Finally the girl said, You really do
care a great deal for Miss Wayland.
His only answer was a deep breath
and a slow turning of the head, but
once she had .seen the look in his
eyes she needed no other. She could
only say: "I hope she is worthy of
all she is causing you to suffer. Boyd
So few of us are."
She did not speak again, but in her
heart was a great heaviness. They
reached the dock and lost sight of the
spy, only to havevhim reappear soon
after the boat cleared, and. while
neither spoke of it they felt his pres
ence during the whole trip.
At Tacoma Boyd left her to go about
his business, but joined her later at
lunch, with the joyful announcement:
"I've had better luck this time." They
said there would be no difficulty what

"I'm inclined" to give that shadow a
little personal attention," the young
man mused, but when she questioned
him he only smiled and assured her of
Again on the return trip they discov
ered the fellow among the passengers.
Cherry noticed as they reached the
dock that while Emerson maintained
a flow of conversation his eyes were
constantly upon the fellow's back and
that he kept a position close to his
shoulder, regardless pf jostling from
the others. She could not tell what
this foreboded, nor did she gain a hint
of Boyd's purpose until the gangplank
was in place and they were out upon

slanting planks He lunged violently
against the man in gray, who was next
him. It occurred with the suddenness

saw was the stranger plunging down

at the vessel's side, while Boyd clung
to. the guard rope as if about to lose
his balance. 1

Fred L. "Wilson, (mining geologist
and oil and water expert, of Los An
geles, Cal., who has been in the field
of west Texas for the past three
months for Boston and California cap
italists, is at the Zeiger, where he said
"In tracing the oil and uater from
the base of the Guadalupe mountains
In northeastern El Paso county tp the
Bio Grande, a distance of about 200
miles southeast, there were several
sections of country that appealed to
me as being of value from an economic
and geological standpoint. Tihere is
no use of asking for information in rhe
oil prospects of Brewster county, as
there is no information to be given out
about these fields.
"Beginning at the Sierra Gailnlupe,
or El Capitan, the water rising in these
mountains and at the bases of the
mountains, is a good clear, cold water,
forced up from the subterranean
streams that flow along th east side,
and along hee mountains, passing
through from the southern portion of
these mountains in a southeasterly di
rection through sulphur and gypsum
beds, 40 miles southeast of the Guada
"Here the subterranean springs are
brought so neai- the surface J hat por
tions of the stream are exposed in
the natural caverns vvhere you c-m hear
the waters rushhig underground. Some
of this water issues as springs through
out the sulphur beds, about 40 miles
northwest of Toyah. The waters have
become imnresrnated with sulnhur. and

highly Impregnated with sulphur, ow
ing to the formation through which it
passes precipitating the sulphur. In
Itr. course to the south it gives up some
of the heat that was found In the Toyah
"There are in the Toyah basin exten
sions, vast deposits of sulphur, enclosed
In the lower cretaceous formations.
The extent of sulphur in these beds,
figuring them at .an average of 15 per
cent sulphur, is between 15,000,000
and 20,000,000 tons
"Vast deposits of gypsum of com
mercial value are also found. "Without
a doubt .these gypsum deposits are re
lated to the sulphur beds. The sulphur
is a product of the gypsum. And yet
there ma be some doubt as to these
sulphurs as a whole being derived from
the gypsum deposits, owing to the
presence of sulphuric acid of so high
a percent, found In someof the water.
That this section of country was at
one time a great lake, there can be
m doubt It is probable that organic
matter coming into this lake through
streams that existed at that 4time, pre-
cipitated the sulphur to a certain ex-
. tent, while secondary enrichments are
J iepresented by the higher grades of sul

troleum shales, and other indications
that are favorable to oil. In this vi

Black diamonds, or carbons, as they

carefully examined undejr a strong lens,
search being made for flaws, porous

small individual stones, as they can be
more readily examined and their flaws
be detected, than in the individual
stones, where a surface gloss some

That San Antonio is built over a huge
cavern is the belief of not a few old

bandits of the early days used the
cave as their headquarters and their
storehouse for plunder. The cave has
