One ofthe tourist cars that arrived
on the O. H. this morning had a corpse
in a berth. It was the body of Elra
Bradshaw. aged 16. of Boyceville. Wis
consin. Young Bradshaw was on his
way to Los Angeles in company with
his father, N. W. Bradshaw, a merch
ant of Boyceville. The young man was
a sufTerer from a disease of the bone
which bad attacked his arm and it had
been amputated. But his blood had
been poisoned by the disease and he
never recovered from the effects of
it but he wad not thought to be so
near death.
Mr. Bradshaw said that about 2
o'clock this morning he was up 'and
gave his son a drink. He and his son
had berths just opposite each other and
he heard him complaining and he
seemed restless but as that was no un
common thing he did not get up to
look after him any more until about
& o'clock. He was shocked to find his
boy had passed away. The body was
still warm and it was evident that tie
had not been dead more than an hour.
An undertaker was notified to meet
tue train and tie body will be em
balmed here preparatory to shipment
back home. Mr. Bradshaw has not de
cided which way be will return, as he
will have to make arrangements about
transportation. He has a ticket to San
Francisco but will not want to go that
way now. He will probably return
over the G. H. as soon as arrangements

A. E. Stoitz, the G. H. fireman who
was slated to take toe place of an S.

that city last night.
The S. P. is having a new switch
laid in the yards just west of the de
pot and between the two tracks that

The foot ball team was out last
night again for anotheer hard prac
tice. Peyton Edwards, than whom
there is not a better all-around ath
lete in EI Paso, has consented to as
sist in coaching the team and was out
last night and worked hard with the
boys. With such men as Peyton Ed
wards and "Bob" Rutherford and
Captain Devis coaching the team it will
readily bee seen that something is
bound to come from their efforts.
The boys will meet again tonight and
tomorrow night and on Sunday after
noon will line up for a short practice
game the last before the big Christmas
game with Mesilla Park. But any one
thinking that the game will be a walk
over for either team will be mistaken
for the Mesilla Park team has been
training since last September and is
still hard at work fSr the Christmas
game and if the El Paso boys win
they will have to play hard and fast
foot ball and will need the rooting of
every enthusiast in El Paso.
The foot ball colors are cream and
crimson, and every body attending
the game next Tuesday should wear a
streamer of these colors. 1
It will be a pretty exhibition of man
ly strength together with science, and
no one can afford to mis3 the game.
By special request the southt side of
the gridiron will be reserved for acr
riages. That foot ball is the greatest draw
ing card of ail the college sports may
be seen from the following taken from
the New York World:
"Foot ball is the great money maker
among college sports. Harvard's fi
nancial statement of athletics, which is
doubtless representative, shows that
the net piofits from foot ball last sea
son were $42,269, making good the de
ficit in other branches of sport, en
abling the expenditure of more than
$20,000 in permanent improvements,
and leaving a net balance for the year
of $26,500."
