The Boys in Blue Leave Amid Cheers, For the Scene of Hostilities'. Fort Blis4 now at and a deserted, for the last company left yesterday even ing for New Orleans. It was but a short time ago that the people of El Paso ca'd farewell to the two infantry companies that left for the front, but they little thought they would so soon bid adieu to the cavalry troop which was left to guard the fort. Yesterday afternoon at six o'clock th'i train composed of three coaches ar.d as many stock cars rolled in'o the j.. & P. vara a, cteerea oy several nuu dred El Pa?o people who were there to see the boys in b'ue start for tbe war. j The company consistd of seventy four non-com missioned officers and , men, with Captain A.

Drummood, Gregory, Young, and Adams. However, several boys accompanied the troops with the hope of enlisting when they arrive at New Orleans. The boys. did not forget their mascot which was a six months old yellow dog, with a irreen cloak marked '"Dewey."

WIi a man breaks down with that dread disease, consumption, and recognizes his condition, he start, out to fish for health. - He trie, this thing and that thing. He consult, this doctor and that doctor. He indulge, in all kinds of absurd athletic exercises. He trie, first one climate and then another. He trie, the rest care and the work cure. He grows steadily worse. That is the story of most consumptives. Finally, when the consumptive dies, the doctor shrugs his shoulders sad pronounce, consumption incurable. A thirty year.' test of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis covery has demonstrated that it cures oS per cent, of all cases of consumption, if taken in the earlier stages of the disease, before the lungs are too far wasted. In a consumptive there is a weaker spot than even the lungs. That spot is the stomach. A consumptive never really begins to die nntil bis stomach gives out. The "Golden Medical Discovery" not only braces up the stomach, but acts directly on the lungs, healing them and driving out all impurities. Honest medicine dealers will not urge you to take an inferior substitute. "I had a very bad cough, also night-sweat, and was almost In my grave with consumption,' writes Mrs. Clara A. Mclntyre, Box 171, Ash land, Middlesex Co., Mass. A friend of mine who had died with consumption came to me in a dream and told me to take Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, and, thank the Lord, I did so. By the time I had taken half of the first bottle I felt much better. I kept on until I had taken three bottlaa. That was all I needed. I got well and strong again." Whenever constipation is one of the com plicating causes of disease, the most perfect remedy is Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets, which are always effective, yet absolutely mild and harmless. There never was any remedy invented which can take then place. They never gripe. The Spanish Ruffian, having troubles of his own, aban dons Blanco; abandons Cuba. But Cuba will be better off now.

Jim Adams, formerly a railroad man, but lately a cook at tbe Delmpnico res taurant, left yesterday with Uncle Sam's pets for the seat of war. Few men in El Paso have more true friends than Jim Adams, and fewer still are better qualified for the task he has undertaken. He departed with a cheerful spirit, assuring his friends that they would bear from him bsfore and after every engagement, ' The following from tbe Mexican Herald shows tbat foot ball players are not tbe only ones guilty of making grand stand plays: "A car wiper at the Mexican Central yards met with an accident yesterday morning while trying to jump on tha outgoing train just as it started off. Trese employ ees of the road have a very bad habit of trying to display their artistic prowess In mounting a train while in motion. This ear wiper in particular, Melqu'ades Varga, wtis dancing around just about tbe time tbe train was eoiog to start and to sbow his sweet heart who was there how grace fully he could get on the car while it was moving b9 turned around and wav ed an affectionate salute, and missing his footing was thrown under the car, the wheel passing over his foot, com pletely severing it. He was tsken to the hospital for midical treament." Looking fcr a needle in a bay-stock iB very trying on the nerves, and few men have the patience to continue such an unpleasant search more than a minute ut a time. Sear'hinp for a needle -in horse-feed, however, is de cidedly easy when compared with the brain-cles'roying tak of looking for facto, roncerningia wreck, among rail road emp'oyres. Thev all look wise. smile, and burst thir suspenders bow ing, but they "don't know a thing. buauK you. Patience is a fine thing, j and had not tbe Herald representaf tive been endowed with an unl mi rd quantity of that precious gift the S. P would now be advertising in every paper in the country for men. It was necessary yesterday to make a guess at the causes which led to the smash ing up of three engines and several box cars in the early morning. A mis'ake was made. Tbe following facts concrnlng tbe wreck came to li?ht yesterday evening: A T. P. en gine, with Dave Schubert at the throttle, went to the S P. yards for transfer cars. Having secured six loads they started east on tbe S. P. track at a lively rate and met S P. en gine 909 coming from the east with a b g train. Engineer Schubert, of the T. P. engine, realizing that a colMsion was inevitable, reversed bis engine and jumped. The two trains met with such force as to comp'etely wreck a flat car, which tbe T. P. engine was carrying for a pilot, and damaged tbe X. f. engine to a great ex;ent. This was not the end of it, by ary means. The T. P. engine, being in a backward motion, started west on the S. P. track without engineer or fireman, and crashed into the 654 standing at tbe water tank, damaging b ith engines badly, and wrecking the cars. One ct the cars wa? driven half way onto the tender of tha 654, and, as a railroad man remarked yesterday, if the 654 hal bad som loads in front of her, tv e box car would have gone to the 'moke stock ard probably killed both en gineer and fireman. "'It was stranee.' he said, "tha". the T. P. engine snd all ber cars remained on the track af'er hitting the 909. It would not happen once again in a thousand times." Contraband of War. Special Dispatch to the Globe-Democrat Washington, D C, May 10. A na its ex- tion which has not had a war on hands for 33 years - might be peoted to find itself rusty on some of the usages. There is nothing strange. perhaps, that the United States is at this time witnout a list or. toose things which prize court will consider con traband and confiscate To meet the omission, Secretary Alger and Sec retary .Long are engaged on the com- Eilatlon of such a list. When they ave oompleted tbe wr rk to their sat isfaction, secretary uay win draft a proclama ion i farming the world what this country will consider con traband, and tbe president will sign it. Until such formal action is taken, naval officers and prize courts will be guided by what common international practice pros rlbes as contraband in time of war. The British government's precedents are accepted by most othr nations in respect to neutrality ques tions. That government has a contra band list. The understanding is that the United States will follow it closely. "Holland's Manual of Naval Prize Law" is tbe text-book for Brit sh naval officers. It is also accepted as an authority by the officers of this coun try, it lavs down two nrinclrjlea to govern limits of contraband, as follows: 1. The gooas must be nt lor pur poses of war as well as peace. 2. They must be destined for the use of the enemy In war. Holland divides articles into the ab solutely contraband and the condi-1 tionally contraband. Articles absol- ; utely contraband are: "Arms of all' kinds and machinery for manufa--tur- ing arms; ammunition and materials for ammunition, including lead, sul-1 phate of potash, muriate of potash (chloride of potassium), chlorate of . potash and nitrate of soda; gunpowder and its materials, saltpetre and brim stone; also, gun cotton; milita y equipments and clothicg; mil tary stores; naval stores, sucti a ma-t-, spars, rudders and ship timber, bemp. cordage, sa l cloth, pitch and tar, cop per nt for sb'athing vessels; mar ire engine and the component parts there of, including screw prop llore, padd'e heels, cylinders, crank f hi its, boil ers, -tubes lor boi'ers, boilerplates and bars; marine cement,. a-;d th matt ri li used for tbe ru mufnetu e thereof; iron in any of the following lorm: ancdore rivet iron, angle iron, round bars iron ot Irom thrf -fourths to live eighths of an inch, rivets, strips of iron, sheet pla'e iron exceeding one-fuurth of an inch, and hoating plate." The list of goods conditionally con traband comprises: "Proviios aiid liquors fit for the consumntion of army or navy; money; telegraphic it ite-rial, such as wire, porr,us cups, platira. sul phuric aiMd or zinc: m&venalrf for the coos ruction of a railway, as iron bar of r ?8 sleepe-rs, etc.;coa'. hfty, hordes 'es tallow, timber." Conaitiouailv contra band means "only in case It may be presumed they are intended to be used for tbe purposes of war." These articles are recognized as con traband by Great Britain, according to Holland. Of quite recent years, how ever, the development of steam and electric forces for war purposes has prompted additions to the contraband list. Tbe articles which would appear to have taken the place of the bemp, pitch, cordage, sail cloth, etc., of for mer days, are coal, electric wire and cables, chain cables, wire ropes, haw sers and netting, ship plates, marine engines, boilers, shafts, lire bars, iron bars, rivets, cement and the like. In the matter of contraband, as In the exercise of the right of prize tak ng, the tendency of civilized nations s toward liberal construction. The following principle has been adopted ny Great. Britain, and . tbe United S.ts will pre bab'y s'and by it: "If the commander is satisfied tbat tne goods on board the vessel are fit for purposes of peace exclusively, he should allow the vessel to proceed on her course.'.'
