M. Skeats, the El Paso chemist gives the following figures on the amount of each of the solids above named that are necessary to make wa ter wholesome and the characteristics and effect of each chemical upon the human system. To be healthful as a drinking water ten gallons of water should contain a half gram of lime. So it may be seen that all waters of the southwest con tain too much lime. A little lime Is necessary for the wants of the human system, but too much will give tne system bladder and rheumatic troubles, Lime in water makes water hard and the more it contains the more break ing is required to mane the water fit for washing purposes. About half a gram of magnesia in ten gallons of water would not make nv serious difference, but none is necessary to make water healthful. Any more than that amount would make the water a purgative as it us ually occurs in the form of epsom salts. It also makes wal'r hard and unpleasant to taste. Soda generally occurs in water as common salt and whether it is injur ious or not Is due to the system which takes it in.' Some systems demand more salt than others and to these salt is a sort of tonic, while others can not stand much salt, as it gives injury to the kidneys. Six grams of salt to the ten gallons will not hurt any sys tem, but as El Paso hydrant water contains more than twice that amount "there is hardly a system that can re ceive it constantly without some in- ' jury. Cases where potash, iron, alumina or silica appears in sufficient quanti ties to be injurious are rare, and no water of the southwest contains enough to hurt any system. Whether or not sulfates are in jurious depends upon what they are combined with. If combined with lime they are poisonous, but with soda or potash they are beneficial to the hu man system. If chlorides are not com- bined with magnesia or lime they are good up to the amount of four grams to ten gallons' of water, but if com bined with those chemicals they are reiy injurious. In the El Paso water the sulfates are combined both with lime and soda, hence the latter com- bination partly overcomes the bad ef fects of the former. In El Paso wa ter the chlorides are combined with soda and are not injurious. Carbonates combined with lime do not hurt the system, but when com bined with soda, as in the El Paso wa ter, the water Is made aiaaune ana harmful. But the chief harm in the El r Paso water, is caused by the combi nation of sulfates and lime and the magnesia. The above table will show that El As Usual, the First Word That Reach ed El Paso Came to The Herald, and Was Immediately Given to the Pub lic in a Bulletin Sheet Distributed Gratuitously On the Streets. The first news of the queen's death reached the city at 11:35 this morning, in a bulletin to the Herald from the Western Press association. As the W. P. A. is always first with the bulletin, so The Herald is always first with the extra, and the news was given to the peopel of El Paso within five minutes of the time the queen died in London. The time difference is slightly less than' seven hours, and as the through wires were held open for the bulletin of the death of the queen, hardly a moment was lost in transmission. The Herald used a novel method to SPLENDID APPRECIATION OF THE ONYX PROPERTY Owned By the Caballero Company of this City, in the Sacramento Moun tains Near Alamogordo. The Mining Investor, published by N. C. Westerfield at St. Paul. Minn., a universally recognized authority on all legitimate mining enterprises, has the following notice of the Caballero Onyx Mining company, the headquar ters of which are in EI Paso. A sam ple of the onyx of this company, which is In a class by'itself. evidently made a very favorable impression, as well as the business lines on which the com pany is organized: "We have received a s-ample of onyx from Mr. Lew Gilbert, president of the Caballero Onyx Mining company of New Mexico, whic can be seen at our office. This sample is the finest onyx we have ever seen, and from the com pany's prospectus, we learn that they have almost an unlimited supply which can be mined and sold to the trade in the rough at magnificent profiits. The Caballero Onyx Mining company is one of the few companies organized upon an equitable basis for Investors, and their statements are made in such a plain, business like manner that .tehy at ence inspire confidence." TWO ALARMS. A Smart Boy. TThe fire department was called out about 8 o'clock last night on a false alarm. The fire was only a bonfire built by some boys out north of town near the mesa. It Is alleged that one of the boys, thinking to be smart and have some fun, secured a key and turn- notify the people or the great event. ed in an alarm. He was looked for Instead . of the customary bulletin last night, but could not be located, board The Herald printed and distrib- J Officer Harold reports to headquarters uted ' many hundreds of bulletin ; today that he has found the boy and sheets and distributed them about the j he will report to the station this even etreets fiee of charge, long before the ' ing.

Just a few minutes before noon to day the fire department was called out the rear room among some tobaccos and id only about $50 worth of dam age. The department was delayed in getting to the scene of the fire by an accident on San Antonio street. One of the wagons caught on the pile of lumber in the street at the new Mason ic temple and blockaded the street for several minutes. A matador from the other side of the river tried to paint the town red last night. After getting pretty well tanked up he ran afoul of officer Christley who took him to the jail where after giving a cash bond for $3 he was permitted to go. era Union Telegraph company, is the j by an alarm turned in from Kohlberg's owner of an anclonl irenealoiriral table cigar establisment. The file Was in " O O I prepared by learned men which pro duces evidence to show that Queen Victoria was a lineal descendent of King David. The old historians who prepared the table go on to show that the Anglo- Saxon race sprang from the last tribes of Isreal and that their descendents are I the chosen people of God, and point to events of the present day as the ful filment of the prophecies of God made many centuries ago in reference to his chosen people. The theory is not a new one by any means and there are scores of people who believe that the English, Irish, Americans, et al, are really the des- cedents of Israel and the chosen peo ple of the Almighty destined to hold the gates of their enemies and to be the mightiest race on earth until time shall be no more. The recent naval battles of Manila and Santiago bay are cited as instances where the Almighty was on the side of his chosen people and gave them the most famous sea victories of modern times without permitting the loss of a man. There are others who contend, Low- ever, that the victories were due to the superior long range marksmanship of the "men behind the guns." t I I I I I II I I I I 1 I I I I I I I I I I I t T A jnr IS...

That question has been asked many times in the past week but others of more authority are taking it up today, The street force has been trying to clean up today and George has not re- moved his stand. George has been taking a rest since the midway broke up and has not often been seen. He is in town and says that he will remove his rubbish manana, but manana has not yet come. The street force took up the saying today and are urging the question "Have you seen George?" He will make you laugh. FOR SALE.

He was re cently reelected to membership in that body. In the Saturday Evening Post of this week there are many interesting stor ies of his experiences. Mr. Grow en tered congress as a democrat; but be came a sturdy republican and a trusted friend of Abraham Lincoln. For near ly two years he was with him several times each week, and be says: "I was deeply impressed by the gran deur of his character, brought into strong relief by the lights and shades of the war." Mr. Grow wuj the father of the famous Homestead Law. In the article he says:- "I introduced five bills at fiv.e differ ent sessions of congress before ono was finally passed and became a law, as it did while I was speaker. It was one of the most gratifying moments of my life when I ha dthe pleasure of signing this bill. The. policy of giving homesteads and of securing the public lands to actual settlers appealed to the convictions and interests of the new states, and more especially to those of the territories." liiyoiiTHii PACIFIC "Sunset Route" he Best SERVICE IN THE SOUTH Nothing Superior to the "Sunset-Central Special' or Pull man Standard and Excursion Sleeping Car Ser vice, operated via Sunset Route and its Con nections between all Points North, East, outheast and West ASK TICKET AGENTS FOR PARTICULARS S.

Did you ever see a copper caterpillar. a silver ceutiped or a nickel gnat? Yet these and many similar objects can be had, if not for the asking, at least for a reasonable amount of money at sev eral places in New York. Who discov' ered the curious art is uuknown, but It was introduced into this city by an ec centric Frenchman who said that be bad elaborated the discovery of some chemists in Paris. M. Paul Despotte, for such was the man's name, declared his secret to be as follows: He first dampened the luckless Insect, leaf or flower and then blew on It with a blow pipe. The object thus dusted was placed In an electrolytic bath, aud upon It the metal was precipitated by the gal runic enrrent. The object was then transferred to a. second bath, from which all the orauic matter was dis solved by an alkali. The metallic shell which remained was slightly heated, touched with some kind of shellac, and the thing was done. The inventor car ried with him quite a collection of these preparations. The most Interest ing of all were a mosquito iu gold and a hairy geranium l-af in copper. The delirncy of the work was ex traordinary. Under a Mwerful magni fying glass the little organs which are invisible to the liumau eye were seen perfectly reproduced in metal. The discovery does not seem to have been utilized to any great extent, so far as trade is concerned, but lias been taken up by many amateurs. This fall an in genious girl up town flrst covered the back of ber hand with black lead and then plated it with -metal. She re moved this, which was a perfect cast. and used it as a matrix, in which she deposited a second coat of metal, which she finally mounted on a piece of satin. Her band, as may be supposed, was pretty and when reproduced In copper made a work of art as novel as it was attractive. New York Post LARGE CATTLE SHIPMENT UP FROM MEXICO. Part of a Sale of Three Thousand Head for the San Francisco Market. One of the largest shipments of cat tle from Mexico through this port came in last night from the Terrazas ranch this side of Chihuahua. The cattle were bought by W. J. Cox for the markets in San Francisco and will be shipped west over the Southern Pacific tomorrow. There are 986 head In this shipment, which are only a part of the entire sale. The sale in cluded 2700 head of fat cattle. "El Paso could do nothing that would be more beaenVtal to the mining nieresis or tnis section than to de' ounce every mining schemer that cob.es into this section." said Frank Qualey of Chihuahua at the Sheldon. raking has injured every legitimate proposition that has presented itself to the capitalists in the east and it strikes home to the interests of El Paso. When a man of that kind comes here the peopel should see that he gets the worst of it. The papers should expose every one of them for they are robbing investors and pre venting legitimate mining men from realizing on their property. I have just returned from a trip to Sonora. and while there an easterner took me Tor a greener and attempted to sell me a property that was not worth a dollar. He told me that the property was tne Dest in the country and asked an enormous price for it. I gave him a run for his trouble. though, and made him think I was going to kill him. I had him fifteen. miles out in the country and made him beg like a good fellow. A mining exchange should be organized here for the pro tection of investors and see to it that none of these fellows go unexposed."

"He has X-ray eyes." said the traveler, "and can see 1500 feet in any direction. He can look down into the ground and see any object 1500 feet in the earth. He can look through a person and tell what he has in his pockets. His sight pen etrates any object, over stone, for that great distance and no test has yet proved a failure." The gentleman has a splendid reputation and his word should be accepted but his friends who heard him tell the story to a Herald, reporter requested that for the sake of his good record in the past, bis name not to be mentioned in the story. The boy is still at home but the trav eler says he has arranged to have him travel in a show soon and the world will have an opportunity to see the wonderful creature. THE CARNIVAL WAS HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL FINANCIALLY. Over 1300,000 Was Dropped in This. City By Visitors, and Business Men are Highly Pleased at the Results of the Work and Expeditures. The midway during the carnival just closed is said by those most interested to be the most succcessful midway ev er held at a carnival. Mr. Shields, who had the flying lady show said that he had been on the road for eight years wth this show and ihs receipts during the first day of the car nival were the largest he ever had in a single day. Other shows make sim ilar reports and every show man In the midway was well satisfied with the affair. The. reports of business men from over the city show the carnival to be a much greater success than was ex pected by any one. There was over $300,000 spent 'in the city and every man who contributed one dollar to the carnival fund has received fifty in re turn. Every hotel and rooming house in the city was crowded to its full lim it and every restaurant, saloon, and gambling house had all -the business it could accommodate. Of course the hotels, saloons and gambling houses got most of the money but it will re main in town and be distributed among all classes. While most of the crowd has gone there are now more than a thousand pople in the city who will remain here for several weeks. They are people with money and are of the extravagant class that spare no expense. The carnival, from a financial stand point, has been a wonderful success and when the committee organizes for work on the next one money will come easy and it can be made a much great er success than the one just closed.
