During April th-i exoortat'on of So- "WOR. nora cattle reached the estimated nutu ber of 10.000. James Philips, of South Dakota shipped 2,200 head of cattle from Tucson recently. Heavy wool shipments are oeinfr made from Holbrook and other towns on thi A. & P. The wool clip of northern New Mex ico is large, notwithstanding- the larg-e herds sheared in the Salt river. Deterioration of Texas hides by damage in branding-, and consequent reduction in price, foots up annually to tens of thousands of dollars. Messrs.

Whenever thee is a decline or stag nation in the market it is always the common stock that suffers hrst. .snip pers of gcod, desirable stock seldom have much complaint to make of the market.

One or more seasons like the present and our sheep raisers will have money to throw at the birds. Wicslow Mail. It is stated that the shipment3 to the Indian Territory this spring comprise a much larger proportion of steers than usual. A larger number of yea-lings and twos have al-o been sect this spring than a year ago. The cattlemen of the Payson section of Gila county are engaged in their spring rodeo. Almost all the steers on the raog-es are contracted tor, some li Phoenix parties and others to go ea?t. II. J. Ramer has contracted for a few cattle, 100 head from W. H Fisher and 300 from Sam Haught, of Rye. Local cattlemen have been busy this season making tneir spring aeuvery, which has commenced in gocd earnest Over 5,000 head have been shipped from Deming th's week, 1.800 head coming trom tee state or tJni.nuao.ua, in old Mexico, the balance being Grant county stock. Deming Headlight. W. G. Urton, manager of the Ca?s Land & Cattle company, ha sold thre thousand head of two and th"ee year old steers to the Crider Commission company, receiving $19. S3 per head for the twos and $24.80 per bead for the three year old. The.-e are good prices but tbey are good cattle. Iv03weil Record. About a quarter of a million heai of cattle have been returned from the four big markets this year to feed lot throughout the com belt. This is an ncrease of - per cent over the num bers sent out for a correspondihg pe riod last year; the prices paid were also uncommonly gcod, numerous sales beiog made at from Xi.oV to per 100 pounds. There are fully forty thousand head of cattle under herd on th's and the other side of the Pecos. They will be trimmedup. The steers sold will hi cutoutaud driven to northern pastures, and cows and calves will ba takea back to their ranges. If we had a north eastern railroad connection all these steers would bs shipped from this point. Rosweil Rojoid. 1200 stock cars have baen ordered to this county to aeoommodate the large shipments of cattle to be made in the near future from this place and Dem ing. This is estimated will briDg near ly hilf a million dollars to the cattle men of this county. Mo,st of these cat tle sold at good prices and cattlemen say this will be the most prosperous year they have had for ten years. The movement of cattle from Texas to Indian Territory points is virtually over, it having been pushed through with celerity for the past two weeks. The shiuments wi'l aggregate more than figurod on smus time ago, owing in part to a shortage of grass in the southwest Texas cattl'i belt. It is esti mated that about 375,000 head have been 6ent forward tiome place the figures as high as 400,000 head. Quit9 a numbsr of cattle in this section of the country have recently died from ''black leg." This disease is supposed to be contagious and is in spired by tco much fee J. It is seldom that any thing hut veirlings a-e at tacked. The animal will lie down and die. After death a swi lling is noticed in the left shoulder and lojr. If this is cut open it will be found that the flesh is decompose! and black, hence the name, '-hlae' leg." A man riding in from the river la t week notic-d four animals deal from this disease. Li-b.-rsj. To those who are wa'ching the de velopment of our cattle export trade Wita England it is gratifying to learn that the future of this business is extremely promising. The prejudice against American beef has about dis appeared, our cattle reach their des tination generally in good condition, frequently they improve during the trip across, and the drowse 1 bsef holds its own with the home art'cle. A prominent live stock and meat shipper now in this country from London, in a recent interview confirmed the above assertions. Cattle, News. Secretary Wilson has recently issued a circular calling the attention of rail road companies to the sections of the revised statutes forbidding; the confine ment of animals in cars or vessels for more than twenty-eight hours without unloading them for rest, feed and wa ter for a period of five consecutive hours. BETTER ACT, AND RIGHT AWAY. It is an oft told tale of late, but will b?ar repetition still more the demand of the times is for wbat is commonly termed -'baby beef," that is, beef from eighteen to twenty-four months old animals. Herefords, Shorthorns and Angus cattle make this beef. The moral is obvious improve your herds by infusion of blood of these breeds Sales of vearlings at $15 to$H are re ported almost every day of late. Up ward markets are to some extent re- spon?ible for these good prices but not altogether. Oa investigation it will be found that the men that get these fig ures are these who nave been improv ing their herds, and the stock is so well known that buyers are content to buy the brand "s'ght UEseea." There are reports of larg-e stock sales all over the northeastern Gila county, in the Pleas nt valley country and down on Cherry Creek; also through out the Ton to Uasin. The grass is very gcod all over the lower country of Tonto and Kye, out oa the Pleasant Valley ranges grass is bach ward; some cattle died for want of feed and there is scarcely any there yet. Jerry Sullivan was here from Selig- man, Arizona, Saturday. Mr. Sullivan had just disposed oi 8,uou cattle to par ties in Kar.sas who will fed them for he Kansas City market He reports plenty of cattle in his state, prices good and the ontloak for the cattle trude the best for many years. Mr. Sullivan has, in addition to the cattle old in Kansas, several hundred head which he will fatten and market at Pacific coast points. Drovers Tele gram. Albert Graves, a prominent citizen nd a regular stock shipper of Norton, Norton couaty, Kansas, was at the ards yesterday with several loads of Arizona cattle. In the consignment ere 44 head, averaging- 892 pounds, nd 03 head averaging DOl p-runds Both bunches were sold to Srhwartzs- hi'd & Sulzberger at $1.85. Mr Graves purchased these cattle on the Denver market about a year ago and hire! them fed. They had been full fed five months on shelled corn. Kansas City telegram. In pastyears the numbsrof Mexican cattle shipped east and north from Arizona, together with the poor and dwarfed condition of improved stock, due to the effects of drought, have tended to deprive our progressive s.ock men of the benefits which tbey should have realized from their investment in blooded bulls. The fine condition of cattle this spring, coupled with the high percentage of white faced year lings, will go far toward giving Ari zona feeders the pre-eminence to which they are justly entitled. Range News. Nothing more clearly indicates the shortage in feeding cattle than the fact that duriDg the past few weeks Buffalo has been shipping feeders to Chicago Some of them were Canadians. This reversal of the natural trend of trade is very significant. The west has for years been the breeding ground and its lean stocks have been shipped east to be fattened on the corn and blue grass of the Mississippi and Ohio valleys. It is surely an anoma'ous condition when the west reaches out to the east for stock to consume its grass. Breed ers Gazette. A Petition 1'resentea to the County Judge That Calls for Immediate Attentien. The following petition was present ed to the county judge three days ago. It is a duplicate of the petition pres ented recently before the city council, and acted on to the extent of $150. To the board of county commissioners of El Paso county, Texas: Gentlemen: We, the undersigned, citizens, residents and property own ers of the southern part of this city, Ea-t El Paso, Concordia and along the cuunty road east and south of these lo calities, most respectfully represent; that from reports received from the Rocky Mountain region of the heavy all oi snow ana the cold and very back ward spring, we have reason to fear aa unusual rise in tne river in the early summer, and unless something is done-to-increase the height of the north bank of the river, lu the vicinity of the localities described, we are in dan ger of again being under water as in 1895. A small amount of money or work judiciously expended now would prob ably save the loss of many thousands of dollars in property when the floods come. We earnestly petition your honorable bedy to take the necessary steps to protect us Irom the threatened danger. Signed, August Anmek, P. C. Dunne, James Croke, C. L.

Brook laid the fdCsin the case before Judge Harper with the idea that an ounce of preven tion was worth a pound of cure; that the expenditure of perhaps $500 now meant the saving of s.x times that sum later on; and moreover, the res dents down the road were forced now to hire men out of their o-vn pockets to do work that the petitioners held should be d ne by the coumy to protect prop- erty. As the JNew York Sun would say the court took the papers and reserv ed hi9 decision." He said he would think the matter over, and did not seem apprehensive of any danger. Then the expense of calling the board together appeared to be an object on. Mr. Dunne says the residents of East El Paso will be on hand at the next meeting of the board to urge relief in person, especially as the river this morning was three leet above the county road, and were the dykes to give way, the whole country would be flooded. It ta beyond the scope of these notes to review in detail the conversion of this remarkable race to Christianity, and it will suffice to mention that tra dition places the event as early as the year 34 of our era. Nor- can one say more as regards the religious orgaoi zation of -the country, the riles and the very epirit of the religion, than that the whole people accepted the new faith and kept all of the old one that was not abrogated by the law of Christ. Our fcavior was recognized as the ex pected messiab, and thus have Eth o ptans or 'rather etchnically genuine Hebrews passed from Moses to Jesus, These aborigines form today the aris tocracy of the country, all the church and state dignataries, the bishops' swora bearers, tne mounted a boots, and an representatives or this feudal tne ocracy descending from the Hebrew settlers.

The superintendent of the Deptford (London) foreign cattle market, report ing to the cattle markets committee of the corporation, stated that cattle from the United states and Canada arrived there generally in excellent condition, owicg to the superior manner in which the ships are fitted, and that for the same reason the percentage of loss was very small, being about one half per cent on all last year's receipts. In some instances the cattle improve on the voyage. Cattle from Argentina do not arrive in as good condition," being generally exhausted and very wild, al though recently there is a noticeable improvement in thp.t class. Sheep from Argentinaare landed in excellent con dition. Loss on Argentina stock last year was over 3 per cent. North Carolina l'oiltits. Special Correspondence El Paso Herald. Marios, N. C , May 3. The politi cal contest waged in this state during the late campaign was the greatest since the ivtr, and it resulted in the comple e overthrow of the state democ racy. Judge D. L. Russet, the guber natorial candidate, was elected over the democratic nomineby 10.000 ma jority. Senator J. C. Pritehard, whose short term in the United States senate expired March 4 last, was triumphant ly re-elected by the new r-publioan- populist legislature. He received the s;lid republican vote with seventeen populi.-ts, which gave him the senator ship by twelve majority. Senator Pritchard is the loader of the republi can party in North Carolina, and he is tiOtoJ in Washington for his greatabil ity and his -aroest advocacy of pro tection to southern products. Senator Pritchard's life is remarkable in many respects. He was born a poor mqun-. tain b.iy and had no advantages in youth, reo-iving less than a year's -chooling altogether. He, very early in life, esuoust-d the cause of republi canism and has always been well to the front battling for its principles. He has been much honored by his party in North Carolina, being its standard bearer in many notable contests. He was an active promoter of co-operation between the republic .n and populist parties in 1891 and through the elec tion of a fusion loislatura wa-i elected to till out the unexpired term of the late Senator Vance in the national senate. His course in that great boiy has been highly satisfatory to ir'a con stituents as is shown by his re-election. Senator Pritchard now has great op portunities for serving North Caro lina and the south. He has the confi dence and respcat of the administra tion as well as the admiration and good will of his distinguished col-: leagues Senator. Pritchard is a young man, comparatively, beirg only thirty nine, and his prospects for yet higher hon-rs are bright. Being under such leadership a bis, republicanism will btreaf :er be an active force in the gov ernment of the '"Tar Heel State." May the grand old '"Lone Star" state soon throw off the burden of Bourbon-, ism and embvace an active, progressive, live republicanism. Albhrt S. Brown. Southwest Texas Fr83 Association Formed at Heevllle. In response to a call issued several weeks ago for a convention for the edi tors of southwest Texas to meet at Bee- ville the other day, the following were present: R. D. Smith, San Diego Sun; D. L.

Atkins for president, D L. Beach for vice-president. S, R. Cowan for secre tary and D S. Bojth for treasurer. Gillette, Marr, Woodworth and Lan caster were appointed an executive committee. The constitution and bv-laws were adopted section by section, the only debate being on the name of the asso ciation, some holding that it should ba named the South Texas and others that it should be called the Southwest Texas Press Association, the latter1 carrying by seve al majority.

Take almost anv diseas-3 you please and truoo the ca'je of it you w ill find it in the blood. Purify and enrich the blood and you romo've the cause, and so you cum the disease in evitably and infallibly. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery cures all diseases depending upon poor, im poverished, thin, impure blood. The Xogus of Altyrtsiuia a Direct Descend ant of King Soloruun, As to the Emperor Menelik. This monarch's recent prowess, bjth moral and materia', has ta'fen tho civilized world by surprise: his lurdis of war riors have proved quite equal to well- disciplined European troops, and he himself has turned out more than a match for adip'o naey said to ba figlia d' un prete e di Macdiavel i. The won der, says the St. James' Gazette should have been less; Meoelia: simply chase des roe, being a direct descendent of King Solomon, his very name being taken after that Menelik, son of Queen Mekeda or Nicaula tne queen of Sheba of the Scriptures - and of the great Hebrew monarch, Menelik means '"another myse f," though Arab historians will havo it translated as "Son of the Wise" by assimilating Menelik to Ebn Alek a familiar phil ological proceeding. At any rate, it is evidont that the negus is of the chosen people; and this on:e established, we need no more wonder at his extraor dinary intelligence. or is he alone of the race in his empire; Ethiopia is simply ruled by Jews not the Jews one tees as a rule in the east, but by authentic Hebrews, the official de-cendents of the seort of 12,000 which Solomon's solicitude pro vided fjr the Menelik of 3,000 years ago, when th? lavonte son of his, hav ing finished his studies in the temple, sot out to join the queen, his mother. A new Judo was founded thus after the death of MakoJa. Menelik origin ated the Solomonian dynasty of Ethio pian emperors, and Jerusalem became the center of the pious pilgrimages for the pe-iple. Two important immigra tions to;)k place during t he first ca pacity, namely, and. during the reign of Saluianascur, the exiles getting r a p'.diy acclim iti.o 1 and absorb -d in the bulk of the Ethiopian nation. A last exodus followed after tho destruc tion of the toinple; but strangely enough, the batch of exiles remain ed without the sphere of action or in fluence of their African countrymen. Through all those een'uries they have kept the proud nickname of Fallazias exiles; they live in ghettos built by their.-el ves in the province of Samen; they are exempt from military duty; they disdain trade, metal working be ing their only occupation, and they have remained faithful to their ancient creed..
