Our Molly's home, an' fixln' up fer her com mencement week ; She pets the cat in Latin, an' axes grace in Greek; An' she's wearin" gold-rim spectacles to hide her eyes so bright; But she's all we've got God blesi her an' I reckon that sne's right! When she left us it wuz springtime, an' net a rose that stirs Wuz redder than the roses on them chubby cheeks o' hers ; An' she use to run roan' barefoot when the dew wuz on the grass. An the river took her plctur' an' wuz all her lookin' ft. ass. An' Jimmy wuz htr sweetheart, an' down thar in the dells. Where the swest birds wuz a-singin' an' the cattle shook their bells, He picked the purtiest wild flowers that growed in all the land. An' Molly 'd kiss him fer 'em as they went 'lont hand in hand. But now she don't know Jimmy, an' the poor boy hangs abou t An' sorter takes a peep at her when no one's lookin' out; An' seeln' of them spectacles, the trouble in his mind Just made him ax me on the sly "Is Molly done gone blind?" These colleges is curious, an' I' m soroy too, fer Jim, But mighty glad the rest of us ain't in the fix of him; Fer when she fast come steppin' in, as lofty as could be. She kissed her mother on the cheeks an' sorter bowed to me! An' so we're goln' to fix her up fer her com mencement week; She kin pet the cat in Latin an' say the grace In Greek; An' wear all sorts of spectacles to hide her eyes so bright She'a all we've gotGod bless her an' I reckon that she's right! F. L. Stanton. It is true that some remedies are worse than the disease. For example a clove is apt to create more suspicion than it disarms. It seldom requires a very strong le vee to withstand the floods of generosi ty. When ignorance happens to make a good guess some folks call it prophe cy. The other fellows' breath will tell you why your wife hates rum. The Herald dow receives a sDec'al every three hours from San Marcial stating the condition of the river at that point. The people in the Venetian part of El Paso are living in an agony of sus pense over a rise in the river. A few inches more rise and many in that part of town will loose their home3.

The first double header for twelve days went west on the Southern Paci fic this morning. The Texas & Pacific freight yester day brought in two engines for use on the Corraiitos railroad. Passenger trains now run over the shoo-fly track of the G. H., while the freight trains plow their way through the mud of the litely submerged track. The yard crews of the G. H. and the T. & P. are kept busy night and day handling the trains that were laid up so.long duriog- the washout. Several train loads of cattle were shipped out last night. School is out and cow the boys can swim all day while the girls can eat green fruit and complain of not feeling well. The summer now is here and the hot tamale man is now selling ice cream and immitation lemonade. The street sprink'ers were not out yesterday, but the hend with the tacks sprinkled the streets and the cyclers were going around with a windless tired look. The El Paso and I'ort Bliss hose teams have been grooming themselves for a week for their hub and hub race in front of the court house tomorrow eveoing. The teams will bs composed as follows: El Paso Bert Campbell, James Adams, Jno. Crosron, Peyton EdK-ards, Ham Woodwortb, Wm. Mc Coy, Jeff Crawford, Joe Xevill, Ed. Mile hell. Fort Bliss Pierce, Smith, Guinee, Mattingly, Hayes, GrifiSn, Sletsenger. It was reported last night that all the officers of the McGinty Light Guards hid deserted and gone over tho river, because of the probability of war with bpain, but the news today was more assuring so they have returned and are now in full command. Tney are thinking of ordering the privates to t uba to reionnoiter the situation, and see if it would be safe for the of ficers to follow. The high water ha no regard for men or measures. Thi Santa Fe is now down with the same di$ea-?e that atUicted the G. H. and the T. & P. for twelve days past. The Tucson Citizan is mw wearing iron hoons abound its heal and it is the proudest paper in the territory, and it was all brought about becau-se a fond mother give birth to a litter of mixed children in the town in which it is printed. TneCitizen says: -'A cur ious freak of nature developed it-self in this city. A Mexican woman has be-com-j the mother of four children. One is almost pure white; one is a full de veloped lndiaa, another a moon-eyed Chinese and the other a negro of the darkest type If any city in the territory- or the world, for that matter, can show a more hybrid output, let it tDeak out. The mother and children are doitig well." Judge Cjldwell says he favors build ing a dyke along tha river to keep out high water in the luture, but he is in favor of seitiag the dyke far enough bick from the river to allow the water to spread. The judge said this morn ing that the river never overflowed East El Pasa until l.vjo and he was sat islied that the overflow there was caus ed by the building ol levees close to the river bid which caused the water to raise to a higher point than it did when there was plenty of room for it to spread out. Tiia judge thought the present work by tha c.ty almost, worth less aa it was only moaey speut to give ill ;.".;! ';t. II r i ; hi "t"i"fr S"M"M"Mr- ! ! ! P ? ft ' ?

NOAKE, Numbers from 111 temporary relief and while he made the motioa for appropriating the money, at the time he fe't like it would be a g-reat lo.'s and very little benefit would be reaped from the investment by property own ers. "The time to build a dyke," said the judge, "was before the flood came on, when there was Dlenty of dirt and lots of room to work in. Now there is no dirt and the levees now be'iDg built run across people's property and will be torn down as soon 86 the present high water is over." "The city is afraid to build a dyke east of Stanton street, " said a citizen this morning, "because it believes that if they build another levee some one will sue it for damages. The city is now lighting an $3,000 law suit for par- ticioating in the building of the aauta Fe levee." The river this morning was within three and one quarter inches of the bottom of the stringer on the btanton street bridge. The governor of the state of Chihua hua has given orders that the Stanton street bridge must be cut away as sojd a3 the water reaches the stricgers on the bridge. This order was given so as to prevent the bndpe from dam in; and backing the water up on Juarez. The walls of the tannery fell last night and George Wafer's house fell this morning; the roof of Taylor's house also fell last nieht. All these houses were in the submerged district in southeast .hi Paso The water was backed up against the dyke at North a brickyard on the south and had reached the corner of the Santa Fe stock pens this morning. The levee built around the sewer pump house is solid and is holding out the water. It would tatte more than a foot rise to throw the water over the dyke and that amount of water would throw it over the floor and stop the pumpj from running. Some of the houses in the submerged district now have dykes built around them five feet high aad only a portion of the houses can be sesa above the levee. The city furnished each resi dent in tha. district two rue a to help build up and strengthen their dykes. Dr. Alexander says the river is not within a mile of his house and that the report published yesterday was false. Investigation this morning: thows that the dykes oa the Mexican side of the river extend from four to six miles below the Stanton street bridge and are holding the water baek and throwing the current on the American side. Not only do the dykes extend far below town, but rip rap work lias been done on the island in dispute opjosite Hand's grove and this shoots the current of the river right against the canal bank on this side and was the real cause of the water backing up and overflowing the canal bank and submerging southeast and E&st El Paso. The building of these dykes on the .Mexican side was a violation of treaty rights acd could not be done legally without the consent of the United Slates government and it is the im pression of some lawyers that those who have been injured by water near Hand's grove and Fast El Paso could recover damages from the Mexican government because cf the building of those dykes, without hrst obtaining authority. These same dykes prevents the water from spreading out near Dr. Alexander s place and probably sub merging his grape orchard. liOUND AllOUT.
