San Benito City Team :t4, Fori Brown !
Before a fair-sixed crowd the city I

Fort Brown team 34 to 0 yesterday on |
the Sa i Benito fie'.d.
Showing the lark of practice and
team work, the Fort Brown and city
team of San Benito put up a fairly good
exhibition of foot Lull, though the more
experienced and faster San Benito team
was too strong a combination for the
Resorting to the aerial route practi
cally most of the game, the Saints pull
ed some beautiful passes, Saunders to
Woods, and N'orris to Slewart. The sol
diers also resorted to the aerial route
on numerous occasions, and made some
big gains via this route.
('allahan proved a good ground ga’ner
for Fort Brown, while the San Benito
backfield men worked well. Saunders
and Norris were the outstanding stars,
while Knd men Stewart ami Bill Woods
proved to he classy in their position*.

MtAllU CITY, Oct. 1G.—Ap
poximateiy 1,000 head of cattle,
hogs, sheep and goat* are killed for
meat in Mexico City daily, and of
this number at least 08 percent are
imported from either the United
States or Argentina. Seventy per
cent of the imported stock comes
from the United States, usually four
day* by train from the border, and
the remainder is brought from South
America on steamers that traverse
the distance between Buenos Aires
and Veracruz in 17 days. In view
of these figures J. F. Primm and Lee
Rush?!), both well known rattle men
of the southwest, are just complet
ing a stock)ard here which at pre
sent has a capacity of 7,GOO head of
stock and cun be enlarged as neces
sity demnads.
The stockyards, the first of the
kind ever established in Mexico on
modern pluns, adjoins the city
slaughter nens and a working agree
ment ha been made whereby all of
the city kill is first received in the
local yards and there prepared for
market. Cold storage is an un
known thing in Mexico, the natives
preferring their meat fresh killed,
but according to Mr. Primm. who is
in active charge of the yards, a stor
age plant will be started as soon as
the other enterprises are safely on
their feet.
The inauguration of the American
owned stockyard* is said by its back
ers to be the forerunner of an earn
est attempt by United States stock
men to replenish the Mexican herds
that have been depleted by years of
revolution. • A bramlt of the Pure
Bred I .ive E.ock Assoiiation of the
Unite*} State* has been established in
Mexico City and is offering its ser
vice free of charge to rancher* and
' farmers in the selection of pure bred
Acordinjj to best available figures
there were some lo.0U0.000 native i
cattle in Mexico before the revolu-1
tion which started ten years ago. I
There are leas than 0,000,000 now,!
and. these are of low grade. Before
' tie revolution conservative estimate
say there were 40.000.000 sheep and
goats compared to the scant 7,000,
000 now roaming the hills. Hog rais
ing has always been neglected und
the number of swine in the coun
try is almost negligible. Indicative
of the natives nreference for meats
other than pork is the fact that out
of the 1,000 animals killed in Mexico
City daily, less than 50 arc hogs—,
and these to supply a city of a mil-,
lion inhabitants. ,
In order ot facilitate shipments!
from the United States and to off-1
set heavy consignments from Ar
gentina, which are growing every |
month, American cattle men have
seerred numerous concessions from
the Mexican government whereby
animals may be brought into Mexico
with a minimum of difficulty. In
spection regulations have been re
lat'd as much as posdble. and the
railroads are making serious efforts
to move stock trains on express
Strange as it may seem, Argen
tina cattle can be shipped to Mex
ico City cheaper than can animals
from south Texas, although the for
mer stock does not compare in
duality with that from the United
States. Catle shipments from all
foreign countries to Mexico during
1921 were more than 168,000 head
of which 140,000 came from south

Five Year Quest
for Perfect Foot
Complete Failure
AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 16.—Judge
W. S. Simkins, veteran professor of
law of the University of Texas, af
ter a five year que.-t for a perfect
foot, has at la t given up in des
pair. His interest in this search was
aroused when a sculptor friend de
clared a woman's perfect foot t:>
be worth $.r»00 to him. T! e Judge
immediately betook himself to the
beach at Corpus Christi and there,
lingering near the water’s edge on
one pretense or another, he scrutin
ized with discerning eyes every pair
of feet that were at all easy to look
upon. But none even gave prom
ise of measuring up to his aesthetic
standard, and after five summers of
repeated disapr ointment he has be
come convinced that the ideal of the
perfect foot is only a myth.
"Doggone it!" he exclaimed,
"there I was in the mid't of all those
women who didn’t have on ! alf
enough in front and not half that
much behind. And not one could
show u perfect foot—but. bless pat,
if 90. per cent of ’em didn’t have
Isuch a bad attack of knocked-knce
I that I was just ashamed for th: m.
| They all appeared to be in need of
j those knee-puds—like horses wear,
i Bless my soul, it was terrible!"
The Judge was asked if he didn't
casually look ubout now and then—
i a perfect foot might step in how
I ever much unanticipated.
"Bah. no,” he replied. “There’ll
I never be another perfect foot as
I long as women bind up the'r feet
worse than the Chinese, and wear
spikes that throw the* foe»t ct mpletc
1 ly out of sha’H* and are good for
1 nothing but digging up the earth.
•No, I'm through. I’m going to re
strict my activities down there on
the beach to flirting with widow
again. That’s the best pastime, af
ter all.”
ALIEN* MHn uci>i:
Mounted River Guard John Pevv Inst

Immigration Officer Frank Crockett and
will be sent here for depor at ion. They

CHICAGO, C't. Id.—St»»et light
n*T, now adonte I in almost every j
city, village and hamlet of the na
tion, brought out a storm of pro
test in one New Knglnad village
when it was proposed in 181fi, ac-j
cording to the Illinois Committee on
Public Utilities.
Artificial illumination was an at
tempt to interfere with the divine
plan of the world which had preor
lained that it should be dark dur
ing the night time, the local paper
pointed out editorially.
Doctors of the village said emana
tions of illuminating gas were in
jurious. Lighted streets would, in
duce people to remain late out of
doors, thus leading to an increase of
ailments by colds.
Others declared the fear of dark
ness would vanish ami drunkenness
and deers v»»v would increase. T! *y
argued that horses would be frighten
ed ami imeves embotucned.
Many argued that if streets were
illuminated every night such con
stant illumination would rob festive
occasions of their charm.
All kinds of flowers gel loved eicept
wall flowers.
\\hat is sadder than n poor imitation
of being happy.
