And bear them up to heaven; Brightest, rarest gems of ours, Soon back to God are given. She is gone; her leaf has perished in the green, and we who loved her in life, are left alone, too dazed to speak; with a grief too great for tears. The name "Florence Newman" re calls to us the elements of her nature, which combined to make a perfect woman; like a rare, beautiful bud, un folding, one by one, its lovely petals, reveling in the sunshnie, she passed modestly from girlhood to noble wom anhood, revealing one by one. to those intimately associated with her, many God-given qualities of head and heart. Her brave young heart was a foun tain from which flowed an inexhausti ble stream of love, sympathy and noble stream of love, sympathy, and noblej impulses; hers was a religion of love and charity, practiced in her daily life, and her heart always inclined to the good, the beautiful, and the true. Her fortitude, patience, and resignation were almost divine; for she understood what it meant to suffer and be strong, and smiled through her tears. Her happy, sunny disposition attrac ted and held young and old alike, and her bright, cheery presence oft made a rift in the clouds that hovered about the lives of others less fortunate than she, and made way for the grateful sunshine she always brought. She possessed a high strung, ether eal nature, with delicate sensibilities, and it seemed her pure, beautiful soul must be out of tune with those of coarser fibre, yet she played bravely her nart in the great drama of life, and by her gentle influence and example, wrought perfect harmony out of dis cord. Her home life was ideal, sublime; aer devotion to father, mother, broth er, was fraught with little acts of kindness and love, "Innumerable as the stars of night, Or stars of morning, dewdrops, which the sun linear! on every leaf and flower." To her immediate circle of friends, she was known as "Queen Florence," m. graceful tribute to her charming personality, bestowed upon her by. those who crowned her with a wreath of loving thoughts and constituted themselves her subjects. This honora ry title, which she wore with so much dignity, modesty, and grace, was emi nently befitting, and her loyal, grief stricken subjects will always remem ber "Queen Florence" with deepest af fection and tenderness. Surely she was "a perfect woman, nobly planned." Our deepest, heartfelt sympathy goes out to her bereaved parents and fam ily in this great trial; in fancy 'we can see her now. the loveliest of God's efroir, waiting and prayinK for those SAMTA O LAUS headquarters at Springer's 216San Antonio St., this year not only for the little ones, but for the TOYS AND DOLLS.

Pure in person, heart and mind. Charity and love combined. Her nature many traits revealed, Leaving many half concealed, Of character divine. She," blest with perfect womanhood, Weaker natures understood. Nor censured those brought low by sin. But all their sorrows entered in, And raised them up. Serving God in love's bright sphere. She spent, in sweet employment here. Her life; and those who mourn her loss. Would not have her take up the cross Of life again. God of wisdom, goodness, love. Incline our hearts to -things above, Grace and patience do thou give, That, in humility, we'll live. In purity of heart. That when our trials here are past, Like her we'll come to know at last The perfect joy of seeing thee, Of living through eternity In thy love blest. A Friend. ENRIQUE CREEL. MA BE HEAD OF TREASURY Of the Mexican Republic, If Mr. Liman tour's Health Shall Fail Him To tally. "Enrique Creel.principal owner of the Banco Minero in EI Paso, Juarez and Chihuahua besides many other banks in different cities of Mexico, is being prominently mentioned as the next sec retary of the treasury of that republic, to succeed Mr. Limantour," said B. J. Kuhn of the Mexican Central last night "Mr. Creel is known as the father of the banking business in Mexico and is one of the wealthiest men in the repub lic. When he established the Banco Minero in Chihuahua the banking busi ness in Mexico amounted to nothing. He adopted a system similar to the American system and has revolution ized the business throughout the repub lic. He now has one of the strongest banks in Mexico City and numbers of smaller banks ia different cities over the republic. "Mr. Creei's ability has been recog nized by President Diaz and since Mr. Limantour 's health began to fail it is said that he will be relieved by Mr. I 8 Creel. If Mr. Creel takes hold of the government's finances there is little doubt that the financial depression now existing there will be relieved in the near future." GETTING READY FOR THE CHRISTMAS GAME. The Football Boys are Gettng in Fine Trim and the Game Will Be Well Worth Seeing. Final arrangements for the big Christmas game of foot ball have been completed and it all lies with the team now as to whether or not the game will be a success. The boys all say that it will and are hard at work every night training for the big contest. Foot ball is the winter sport for the Americans and on Christmas day the people of El Paso will have the first chance to see a real game of foot ball when the two elevens have trained for the event and none should be preju diced against the game until they have seen one with their own eyes. The tickets wre placed on sale today at noon and already enough have been sold to guarantee the managemen that the game will be a success. There are people who will say that foot ball is as brutal as prize fighting, but no one who has seen a game and has understood it will ever' make such a , remark. Foot ball may be made a rough game, but the rules this year prohibit all un necessary roughness and the manage ment will insist upon fair play. hu WILL CLOSE UP HIS BUSINESS IN JUAREZ And Move to Laredo, Since Business in Juarez Has Got So Poor and Io Get ting Worse. J. Goodman is preparing to close up his business in Juarez and move to La redo. Mr Goodman now owns large stores at Laredo and C. P. Diaz and will close up his store here that be may give more attention to his stores there. The business conditions in Juarez have grown steadily worse for several years until now almost every merchant in that city wants to get away. Mr. Goodman has had a store there for nearly twenty years and until the past few years found the investment profitable. Recently, however, it began to decline and he opened houses both at C. P. Diaz and Laredo. He now has a wholesale house at Laredo and will reside there in the future. FOUND THE LOST PASS. RfdiiroTfrr of it Practicable Route Acrom h Southern Andes. More than 100 years ago. Father Menendez, while traveling among the mouutaius in the northern part of Pat agonia, discovered a pass through which, be said, a practicable wagon road might be made from the Pacific ocean through all the mountain ranges to Lake Nahuel Iluapi, by far the lar gest lake in the southern part of South America, and on to the Atlantic ocean. It became known as the Bariloche pass. In those days it was thought that no good would ever come out of Patagonia. Very few explorers or oth er white men visited this region, and Father Menendez's discovery, though utilized for a time, was almost forgo' ten till some 20 years ago, when ranch men began to move down to the neigh borhood of Lake Nahuel Huapl and found the grass was good and other crops might be raised. Theu citizens of Chile and Argentina began to look around for this pass In the mountains, and. although they sought diligently, they failed to find It. The description which the pioneer priest had given of the important dis covery was, unfortunately, very vague and painfully lacking In detail, and hunting for the pass in that rough and tangled mountain region was a good deal like looking for a needle In a hay stack. Finally the official explorers whom Argentina and Chile have long kept In the Held began to take a hand In the search. They used their utmost care, but all In vain until this late day, when the long sought for pass has at last been discovered and traced by the Chilean engineer. Captain ltarrlos. Peterinann's Mltteilungen prints a list of all the valleys of big rivers and their little tributaries through which this comparatively low lying and tor tuous route runs from the Pacific ocean to the big lake of Patagonia. It Is not worth while to reproduce thcra here, and most of them are the names of valleys that have not yet appeared on any of our maps. One or another ex plorer has struck the route In a part of its course, but, somehow, has never succeeded In connecting It with the other parts for any great distance. But there Is no doubt whatever that the route which Father Menendcz and some of his successors followed has been rediscovered in its entirety. Here and there are found traces of the old path, and there are many blazed trees which the original discoverer Is believ ed to have marked. Home School Work. By order of the Pittsburg board of education more time for study during school hours Is to be permitted to the pupils of the high school, and the ne cessity for home work will be obviated. In this reform, as Is pointed out by the Pittsburg Chronicle-Telegraph, the school authorities are beginning at the wrong end. Pupils In the high school. by n-aMoii or tneir age ana vr . the shorter school hours, are better able to stand the strain of home work than are the children in the grammar schools. Children who ought to spend In play H their daylight hours out of school arid who should go early to bed to give the forces of growth and devel opment In their systems their proper opHrtunity are required to spend one or two hours at home in study. Wondrri of the Forbidden Palace. After the march of the troops through the Forbidden palace at Peking a party of civilians, including the ladies of the legations and several well known mis sionaries, was admitted. Tea was serv ed, and then the Imperial palaces were Inspected. The most remarkable fea tures of the imperial buildings are said to be the exterior gilding and the stair cases carved out of single stones, with figures and dragons. Hons and other ornaments. The bed of the empress is trimmed with solid gold. After the in spection the gates were closed again, and no one was icrmitted to enter the grounds. Loudon MaiL A Formidable Navy. Morocco has the smallest navy in the world. It consists of just one vessel the Hassani. Until r-cently the pecul iar feature of this warship was that it had no guns. I.nt the sultan. Abdul Asiz. has now purchased at Cadiz four of the lightest pieces of ordnance left to Spain by the United States at the close or the war and has had them mounted. lie is thoroughly satisfied that in the event of war with any of the powers the "reorganized" navy would le able to sweep the seas.

Medical Record. The World's Letters. One of the Berlin reviews publishes a calculation on the number of letters distributed annually throughout the world. It gives the total as 12.000. 000.000.
