Several El Pasoans, who are ac quainted with the glass industry, have Interested Pittsburg people In the great coal and sand fields near Ala mogordo and Capitan, and a company has practically been organized to put in a plant at one or the other of the places. The sands are at Alamogordo but the coal and coke are at Capitan and the company has not yet decided where the plant will be erected. Several parties have visited the sands and made a thorough inspection of it and decided that the sands are the best in the west. EXTENSIVE IMPROVE MENTS ON A RANCH. Oliver Lee and W. W. Cox Spend Fifty Thousand Dollars) in Building a Twenty-five Mile Canal and Making Other Improvements. Oliver Lee and W. W. Cox of Ala mogordo have solved the water prob lem on their big ranch west of that place and now have water on every part of the ranch. They have just completed a canal running from the mouth of Dog canon near Alamogordo. 25 miles west into the ranch. The ranch has many thous ands of acres of good land which here tofore has been practically worthless because the cattle could not get water. The canal is four feet wide and two foot rioort niiH la mnnfnr full rtf Vflfpr day and night. They also have a farm of 100 acres on the ranch which is well irrigated by the canal. This will be sown in alfalfa next year. The ranch is well fenced and an the late improvements have cost them over $50, Ow. GLAD TO GO BACK HENDERSON, THE ALLEGED EMBEZZLER. IS TIRED Of Trying to Elude the Officers, and Says He is Going ho Try and Live Down the Bad Name He Has Made For Himself and Begin Over Again. Marshal D. F. Camp of Greeley, Col Drado, left last night with U. M. Hen ierson for their Colorado home. As stated in yesterday's Herald Henderson was for years the most prominent and popular man in Greeley, and although he fled from justice when he was re leased from the Greeley jail several nonths ago, and was arrested In El Paso, yesterday Mr. Camp showed the sonfidence he held in the man by tak- ng him around the city with him all lay and finally ending up last even ng by going over the river. Had Henderson chosen to do so he ould have left Mr. Camp on the other :ide and it would have cost several mndred dollars to extradite him and t would have meant a long delay. 3ue he told Constable Henry Gray ust before getting on the train last light: "Mr. Gray, you are my friend, fou did me a great favor when you trrested me Monday night. I have vanted to go back to Greeley but did tot have the nerve. I am tired of lodging around and I am more anxious o go back than they are to have me ome back there. I have a great many Yiends there who will all stand by me, ind the next time you hear from me it will be that I am a free man living lown the bad name I have .made for nyself. I have no one to blame but nyself for my weakness and God help ng me I win yet be a man among nen." Mr. Camp said that he would not be ifraid to turn Mr. Henderson loose if he promised to be in Greeley at such a 'J me' for he had the utmost confidence n him. THE NEW MEXICAN LEAD COMPANY'S CONCENTRATOR Will Probably Start Running Next Wednesday, and the Shipment of the Concentrates Will Begin Soon. The New Mexican Lead company has struck a supply of water in a well at their mines in the Organ mountains near Las Cruces that will supply ten times the water needed to run the concentrator. The concentrating plant is nearly p and is expected to start next Wed nesday. The company has been tak- ng out ore all the season and will have sufficient supply to keep the plant running for several months. Mr. James is highly pleased with the outlook and says he will be ship ping concentrates into El Paso with in three weeks. NEW CLUB SOON TO BE ORGANIZED. A new club is soon to be organized known as the Shinney club, composed of citizens that have rawhided in Tex as west of the Brazos river for the past twenty years.

There is ample material for a strong organization of this kind in the. city. EL PASO MAN WILL BUILD THE NEW CAPITAN SCHOOL. E. Krause, the El Paso architect, has secured the contract for building the new city school building at Cap itan, New Mexico.

Maurice Low in the Forum. The foot-soldier is an anachronism, an archaic as the man-at- arms with halberd or the archer with his cloth- yard-shaft. The modern foot soldier is not only a fighting machine, he is also a beast of burden; and no one can be both with success. The American infantryman equipped for . war is weighed down with rifle, bayonet, am munition, clothing, shelter tent, water bottle, and haversack, in all some sixty pounds in weight. It is a common be lief that a soldier is so. strong and hardy that he does not feel his burden; that he can march ten or fifteen miles with sixty pounds about his body and not mind it; that like the well-trained athlete, who thrives under violent ex ercise, he enjoys having to transport all this paraphernalia. Now, as a matter of fact, that is the one thing of all others which the soldier despises. He doesn't mind the fifhting; he can put up with the heat or cold; and al though he may growl when his rat ions are short he accepts that as part of the day's wark; but to turn himself into a porter, to be a coolie and the bearer of burdens, is the thing he abominates. , There is nothing more depressing to the spirits, nothing more devitalizing, nothing which makes greater drain on a man than a march. There is noth ing picturesque, nothing exhilarating, nothin gto break the horrible monoto ny of his seemingly interminable plod ding through baking dust or clogged mud of chilling snow. All the color of war has gone. There are no bands to make men forget their fatigue, no waving plumes and fluttreing flags to excite the imagination, no spectators to stimulate pride, there is no scenery even. War is now a monochrome; ev ery one dresses the same, khaki loses its semblance of color and takes on the color of dirt or mud of the country through which the army marches, and no man sees more than the man in front of him or the man on each side of him. Hour after hour this goes on; rifle becomes heavier. ammunition belts chafe more gallingly, haversacks and water-bottles strike in a tender spot, shoes get filed with grit which makes each step an agony. If after a long march men are thrown into action they have lost their-vim and their power of resistance; and it is only by sheer nerve that they are able to stand up to the rack. Nine times out of ten infantry are sent into action with their nerves unstrung, simply be cause they have been broken down by the strain which has been put upon them. To get the best results out of men they should go into action in a perfect physical condition; but they : are generally weakened by the drain made upon them. The remedy for this, a remedy which will not only increase the actual phys ical strength on an army but will also give it that mobility which is all-essential, is to give each man his own means of transport, that is to mount him. The armies of the future will be armies of mounted infantry. TEXAS PACIFIC CARNIVAL RATES.

Help is needed at once when a per son's life is in dangor. A neglected cough or cold may soon become serious and should be stopped at once. One Minute Cough ure quickly cures coughs and colds and the worst cases of croup bronchitis, grippe and other throat and lung troubles. Fred Schaefer, druggist. EIGHTS ECONOMY OF LARGE CARGO SHIPS The tendency is to increse the size and speed of all steamers nowadays.' and the rule holds good in regard to self-trimmers. Many of them will car ry 7,000 tons of coal as a cargo at 11 knots, and there is sufficient evidence to support the view that the larger the vessel the more economical, in pro portion is the coal consumption. A return now before me, in which are given the results of a large number of voyages by different ships, shows that a 9,000 ton steamer, running 267 miles a day, had a consumption of .036 lb. of coal per ton displacement per mile. An 8.000 ton steamer, running 266 miles a day, used .038 lb., while a 7.- 000 ton vessel, steaming 264 miles a day. burned .048 lb. A 6,000 ton steam er, going 257 miles a day, used .054 lb., of coal per ton displacement, and a 5,000 ton steamer, traveling 260 miles a day, .067 lb.; while a 4,000 ton steamer, going 269 miles a day, con sumed .081 lb. These figures show in each case speeds of close about 11 knots, and they also show that the cost of the 9,000 ton steamer for coal was less than half that of the 4,000 ton boat, per mile per ton displacement showing that the larger the steamer the less the coal consumption pro rata.

DOES IT PAY TO BUY CHEAP? A cheap remedy for coughs and colds is all right, but you want something mat win relieve and cure the more se vere and dangerous results of threat and lung troubles. What shall you do? Go to a warmer and more regular climate? Yes, if possible; if not pos sible for you, then in either case take the ONLY remedy that has been in troduced in all civilized countries with success in severe throat and lung troubles.
