EL PASO DAILY HERALD, SATURDAY, DECtMBlR 15, 1900.
4 t t I I Link and Pin. i DIPLOMA FOR THE SANTA FE. A diploma of honorable mention was granted the A. T.. & S. F.. rail road for an exhibit of scenic photo graphs in the social economy section of the late international exposition at Paris. The views were carefully se lected and give a good idea of the magnificent scenery in Colorado, New Mexico and California along the Santa Fe route scenery surpassing anything of which the world can boast. WATCHING THE WATCHES. In addition to a rigid system of daily comparisons with standard time, the watches of all the Santa Fe employes in the operating department under go an annual inspection. Out of the neany two thousand watches recently examined on the A.. T. & S. F. proper, only ten were condemned, which shows that the men are careful to buy reliable time pieces. The testing and rating of eacn watch requires three days and is an interesting process. CAME THE SHORT WAY. R. S. Hair, the Chicago excursion agent who comes over the Rock Island and T, & P.. brought in twenty-six people last night and left one here. I The T. & P.. arrived at 1:30 last night. It was first five hours late on account of waiting at Texarkana for the Iron Mountain, which had been delayed on account of a freight wreck east of Texarkana. Then all along the route this side of Ft. Worth the passenger train was sidetracked and waited for I long orange trains to pass. Mr. Hair says the engineer made up considerable of the time thus lost by coming straight through instead of going around the curves this side of Sierra Blanca. When the train didn't jump from one track to another across the loops it whizzed around them so fast it threw the occupants of the berths out in the aisle and played whip crack er with his car until the water tank ms thrown off its perch and the water and ice was strewn from one end of the car to the other. He says he prefers to have the train come in late when he is aboard it, rather than to have lost time made up around those curves. ncial party will return east tonight with the regular G. H. passenger train. COL. HAMPSON FUTURE. AND EL PASO'S Upon his return to the City of Mex ico Col. J. H. Hampson. the well known railroad man. said to a Herald reporter: "We stopped for a couple of hours in El Paso on our way down here and were driven about town to the railroad ofTices. stations and yards and through the principal strets. I must say I was utterly surprised to see the progress of this far western city and I prophesy that on account of the railroads al ready entering there and those that will soon be constructed to that city, its geographical position and the en terprise of its citizens, it will in the near future be one of the great cities of Texas. If it is not. it is bound to be a great railroad and commercial center. "It is assured that the Rock Island is to build to El Paso, and the Pecos Valley road has decided to extend its line thither. "THIS I WAS TOLD BY MR. HAGERMAN. PRESIDENT OF THE PECOS VALLEY RAILROAD WHILE I WAS IN NEW YORK THE SAD DEATH Of Miss Florence Newman At L-s Angeles A telegram to A. P.

She was about twenty years old and one of the most brilliant young women of the city. In speaking of her this morning a promi nent citizen said: "I have known Miss Newman ever since she was a little girl, and I can honestly say that I have never seen or even heard of anyone with a more Ioveable disposition. She was a favorite with all who knew her and to talk with her was to love her, I he parents are unable to accom pany the remains but will remain in Los Angeles for some time.

He was only a tramp. That is all that can be ascertained in regard to the man killed at the Rio Grande bridge, supposedly by a train yesterday afternoon. He was only a tramp. He had nothing on his person by which the least clew to his identity could be se cured. But his hands have the horny appearance of hands that worked and his clothing appears to have been soil ed by menial labor. Underneath a ragged, soiled pair of pants he wore a better pair, as is the custom of men employed at dirty work. I He was 'only a tramp. But who knows hut what an old gray haired . .

These four are from Cincinnati and And the Incident Offf red a Finn Dis play Of Human Nature. A fine buggy horse, a big chestnue sorrel, belonging to E. G. Williams of the El Paso piano company, fell into a well in the corner of the yard at Mr. Wimams's residence on the corner of Myrtle and North Campbell streets this morning at ii o'clock. He was dis covered at once and men gathered and commenced to argue which would be the best way to get him out. In a case like tnat every man who comes along has a scheme, which ac cording to his theory will solve the problem in a jiffy, but not every one will take hold and help. Finally some laboring men. whose brains may have not been so elaborately convoluted as other men's, but whose hearts and muscles were larger, commenced dig ging away to relieve the horse. The weil was just deep enough to allow the horse to stick his chin out and so small that he was terribly cramped. The workmen dug away the top so that the horse could get his front feet out and rest more comfortably. Then more men gathered and the argument as to whose scheme would get the horse out the quickest waxed so warm that it looked for some time like there would be a dollar or two in it for the police, while the horse suffered on. inally someone went after a derrick and block and tackle and at 1:30 o'clock when the horse had been suf fering for two nours and a half that to him were very likely days, actual worn of removing him was commenced He was drawn out in about three min utes after the men got through quar reling and commenced to work togeth er. The horse got up and walked away when freed and it seemed' that all he suffered from the ordeai Oi standing hind end down in a well for over two hours was a little soreness.
