This Information, as astounding In

In the United States, became known
here today with his departure for

by his family, but not the usual reti

Even in the event of peace It may be
lost, for the rebels have declared It
"I do not mind going to work; It
may be a good thing," he said to
friends before his departure, and

written on two continents in London
and Paris, in Mexico, Texas, Califor
nia, New York, and in Chihuahua, the
family seat, from which the estate has
always been administered.
Terrazas has worked as rich men
have, and once he was governor of the
state of Chihuahua, but he did not
work for a living.
For Bread and Butter.
, Now, according to himself, he is to
labor for bread and butter. He learn
ed much of farming and the breeding
of horses and cattle on his own
ranches, and his friends say he will be
able to hold his own in wresting an
Income from the soil.
The Terrazas fortune was founded

from Juarez 375 miles south to Jlm

mines, factories and fertile farms.
All this was the property of the
senior Terrazas and his three sons
Juan, now in the City of Mexico; Luis.
Jr., held at Chihuahua as a hostage by
.the rebels, and Alberto until the rebels
declared the whole estate confiscated.
Beginning with the revolt of Francisco
Madera, more than three years ago, the
soldiers of Northern Mexico on either
side of that . and the succeeding
revolutions, have practically lived on
the Terrazas fortune. Immense sums
were contributed by the family to fa
vorite causes, or were extorted by the
Paid Big Ransom.
A recent instance was the million dol
lar ransom demanded for the release of
Luis. Jr. He was incarcerated In the mu
nicipal palace at Chihuahua but declined
to contribute until he was taken out,
beaten with the flat side of a sword and
a noose placed around his neck and gently

"We btlieve we could have bought
all the grub on the table, together
with the paper tablecloth, dishes and
the iron spoons, for two dollars. Here's
the bill of fare 'menu' they called it:
Two raw oysters, two ounces of salad,
two cents' worth of roasted turkey,
one cent's worth of chicken, two
spoonfuls of dressing one-fourth

ice cream, half a cent's worth of cake,
bread, one teaspoonful of salted pea
