! or- f hood Notes I TExAS. TO ESCAPE DISGRACE. Fabriela Garza, a handsome -Spanish woman, attempted to commit suicide at Corpus Christi because her brother was on trial for murder. She had gone to Corpus Christi from Portland to at tend her brother's trial. She crept into a vacant house and passed the night on a pallet of straw. The next morning passersby were alarmed by a pistol shot and on entering the house found her with a ghastly wound in her side. She has often threatened to commit suicide on account of the troubles of her brother, who was last year sent enced to twelve years servitude for murder. His sentence was reversed and he was remanded for a new trial by the appellate court. Physicians say the woman cannot recover. THE YELLOW YAM. The following little poem, undoubt edly of southern origin, is going the rounds of the Texas press: How dear to our hearts is the yellow yam tater. as thoughts of winter come back to our mind; the yellow yam ta ter, the sugar-coated baker, the gravy sopped tater, the old fashioned kind. There's the goose that swung in the smoke-house, the 'possum so fat and fine; the hen and dumplings and flap jacks, and the keg of home-made wine. But the tater comes first to our mem ory, we think of it every pop, the yel low yam tater. the sugar-coated baker with its brown pork sop. Exchange. JUMPED OR FELL. Joseph Chapman, aged 50 years, a carpenter of Galveston, met death in a mysterious way while crossing the bay bridge on his way home from Beaumont. One report is that he went out on the platform of the car while the train was about midway of the bridge he threw up his hat and jumped into the bay. His friends claim that bis hat fell or blew oft his head and in trying to catch it he lost his bal ance and fell. He leaves a wife and several children, but he sent them away from Galveston after the storm and their whereabouts are not known to his friends in Galveston. His body has not been recovered. WANT SHORTER HOURS. Austin lodge No. 52. United Brother hood of Leatherworkers, have made a demand on the harness and saddlery shops of Austin for a reduction from ten to nine hours work with pay for ten hours. All but one firm have sign ed the agreement. Forty men are em ployed by the firm that would not sign it and if that firm does not sign within a few days a strike will be ordered The leatherworkers held a meeting and it is understood that the move' ment is going all over the state. A CARPENTER'S LUCK. ' A carpenter named Thatcher liv ing in Cleburne owned a lot in Beau mont. Monday he went to that place to close up a deal where by he re ceived $10,000 for It. He still owns a 300-acre tract of land near the big oil well and he says that two weeks ago he would have been glad to accept a few hundred dollars for it, but it will take a fortune to get it now. ARIZONA. TREACHEROUS CONSTABLE. Billy Stiles has escaped again, this time from Del Lewis, sheriff of Co chise county. It will be remembered that Stiles was discharged from cus tody a short time ago by Judge Davis. Learning that Stiles was in Casa Gran de, Lewis went down to arrest him on the charge of assault with intent to kill George Bravin, who was jailer at Tombstone the time of the escape of Stiles, Alvord and Bravo Juan. Ar riving in Casa Grande, Lewis located Stiles in one of the saloons and ar rested him. He handcuffed him and started to shackle him when a local constable said that if Lewis would not disgrace the prisoner with irons he would help to guard him. The irons were removed and Stiles made a break for the door. The sheriff jumped after him but was kept from passing out the door by the constable stepping in his way. Stiles made good his escape. If he will only stay away Arizona will be - glad for he is one of the most treach erous outlaws that ever operated in that territory. Report does not say what will be done with the constable who assisted him to escape. PASSING OF AN INDUSTRY. In the recorder's office at Phoenix there has been filed a deed conveying from Wormser estate to Adolphus C. Bartlett a tract of more than 7000 acres of land across the river south of Phoenix. With this comes the pass ing of the canaigre industry of Arizona, which it has for years been thought would be one of the greatest sources of wealth in the territory. The plant has thrived under cultivation, but tan ners could not be induced to substi tute the tubers for the tanbark and chemicals now in use. About 2000 acres of this land was leased by the Anglo-American company. New ma chinery was invented for planting and harvesting the crop and several hun dred car loads of the sliced and dried product were shipped away. Then the company collapsed. Now the land will be transformed into a model stock farm. Nearly the entire expanse will be put in alfalfa and twenty-five miles of cottonwood trees will be planted to furnish shade for the stock. AGED, ILL AND INSANE. Francisco Valdez. of Phoenix, is a Mexican by birth but was a soldier in the regular army of the United States for several years, having enlisted in 1865. He fought the redskins and car ries, many wound scars, proofs of his narrow escapes from death by the ar row. An Apache arrow made a wound on the calf of his leg. which is still unhealed and a running sore. But now Francisco is old and friendless. without a pension, sick and crazy, and must rn to tha nsvlum. He was hon orably discharged and is entitled to a pension, but he has lost his papers ana cannot get one. He has been turned over to the authorities and will be nlocnrl in the territorial asvlum. His storv is a sad one and should not be true. BURNED AND CRUSHED. Theo. Hernandez, a native of So nora. was both burned and crushed in an accident at the Copper Queen smelter near Bisbee Tuesday. Hernan dez had been hoisting full slag pots and in running one lot onto the ele vator some of the hot slag splashed over him. burning him. This made him jump and his jumping started the elevator. As it moved he was caught between the elevator and the side of the smelter pit and was severely crushed. He was removed to the com pany hospital and given medical at tention. MEXICO. A STRANGE MANIA. Rumor in the City of Mexico has It that a man prominent in English speaking church circles has been caught purloining articles from the stores of his friends in the city. He has a mania for an extensive private library and is stocking his home with choice books and periodicals which he takes without paying for. He has been caught in the cat and could only say that he had book kleptomania which he could not resist. Newspaper men's inquiries among his friends show that human nature is the same every where. His friends roll his disgrace in their mouths as a sweet morsel yet want to appear to know nothing about it. Here is a sample of theii talk to a Mexican Herald man: "Go way! Go wav!" "Yes I know! I've heard all about it. Call again. I'm busy. won't talk. I wouldn't tell if 1 did know. I'm sure it's false. Is there anything new from China? Yes. it's loo bad. He was a good man, good-bye, Oh. excuse me. I thought you were go ing. How about that nigger in Leaven worth who was burned? Was it books he stole or I mean is it true the Amer ican club is to increase its initiation? It's an old story. No; I mean I haven't heard anything at all about the mat ter." SHEPARD'S LUCK. A dispatch from Chihuahua says that mining men who have just reacned Chihuahua from Batopilas, where the mines of "Boss" Shepard and his New York associates are situated, report that a great body of exceedingly rich ore, which will bring several million dollars of additional wealth to the owners of the property, has just been struck. "Boss" Shepard has been buried in the heart of the Sierra Madres of Mex ico ever since leaving Washington, D. C. many years ago, and he has made another fortune of several millions of dollars since locating in Mexico. STILLWELL'S MEXICO. LAND GRANT IN Col. Kenry C. Kelley has gone to Chihuahua. Mexico, where he goer to survey and locate a large body of land lately granted by the Mexican govern ment to A. E. Stillwell of the Kansas City Southern railroad. The grant is for 1.125,000 acres and is given to Col. Stillwell and associates as a bonus for the construction of his proposed rail road. A BAD MEXICAN. A poor Mexican woman was un mercifully beaten with a stick by a man who was under the influence of mezcal in Monterey. The officers have been unable to locate the guilty party but are on his trail and expect to lodge the criminal1 in the comfortable quar ters of the juzgado. before long. The woman is horribly beaten and is not expected to live. STANDARD OIL IN WALL STREET. The Financial Monarch of the Great Movements of Recent Speculation in Wall Street. At his best, says Henry Clews, in the Saturday Evening Post, Jay Gould was always compelled to face the chance of failure. Commodore Van- derbilt, though he often had the btreet in the palm of his hand, was fre quently driven into a corner where he had to do battle for his life; and so it was with every great speculator, or combination of speculators, until the men who control the Standard Oil took hold. Their resources are so vast that they need only to concentrate on any given property in order to do with it what they please; and that they have thus concentrated on a considerable number of properties outside of the stocks in which they are popularly sup posed to be exclusively interested is a fact well known to every one who has opportunities of getting beneath the surface. They are the greatest oper ators the world has ever seen, and the beauty of their method Is the quietness and lack of ostentation with which they carry it on. There are no gal lery plays, there are no scareheads in the newspapers, there is no wild scram ble or excitement. With them the pro cess is gradual, thorough and steady. with never a waver or break. How much money this group of men have made it is impossible even to estimate. That it is a sum beside which the gain of the most daring speculator of the past was a mere bagatelle is putting the case mildly. And there is an utter absence of chance that is terrible to contemplate. This combination con trols Wall street almost absolutely. Many of the strongest financial insti tutions are at their service in supply ing accommodations when needed. With such power and facilities it is easily conceivable that these men must make enormous sume on either side of the market. When threatened by pneumonia or any other lung trouble, prompt relief is necessary, as it is dangerous to de lay. We would suggest that. Ona Minute Cough Cure be taken as soon as indications of having taken cold are noticed. It cures quickly and Its early use prevents consumption. Fred Schaefer, druggist. THE ELEMENTS OF GEORGE WEST INGHOUSE'S SUCCESS. No doubt it will be of interest to state briefly what are the characteris tics, as they show themselves to those who have been thrown with him inti mately, that have contributed to Mr. Westinghouse's success and to making him one of the very foremost of the great captains of industry of our lime. First of all comes his genius as an in ventor. This was the foundation. Then comes intimate personal knowledge of mechanical processes and skill in the use of tools. It will have become evident in looking over the sketch of his life that no one but a man possess ed of great intellectual capacity and keenness could ever have acquired the personal acquaintance with so many varied phases of engineering. This enables him to be the master of his great works, all of which he has per sonally planned, and those who know him best understand that, while he does not attempt to direct their routine, he nevertheless is fully acquainted with all the details, is able to discuss them thoroughly with those charged with their prosecution, and that he takes a keen personal interest in everything new and progressive, so that when he walks through his shops he knows just how work is going on, and if the pro gress has not been what it should be he calls attention to it at once. In this respect he is probably without a peer among the great industrial lead ers. Many of them, as is well known, are not technical men at all. and those who are are limited to one line. It would be a very natural infer ence that a man of such great mental power and tremendous capacity for nrnt-ir irinst also lw of Dowerful Dhy- sique. and such is the fact. Mr. West- inghouse is a splendid type or pnysicai manhood, standing over six feet, and u.-nnii nttrart attention anywhero. It it this physique, combined with a tem perate life and cneerrui aisposmon. that has enabled him to endure the enormous work which he has already accomplished and is still doing. W. M. McFarland. in the Works Manage ment Number of The Engineering Mag azine. Loadan'i flonker Famine at 1898. The dontey famine in 189S was one of the strangest scarcities that ever be fell Britain. One cannot eat donkeys, but the dearth of them caused a terri ble lot of inconvenience and sent the price of Neddy up to a prohibitive sum. There was an epidemic of disease among the donkeys of the towns, espe cially those animals belonging to poor people. This so thinned out the donkey roll call that these useful beasts be came scarcer than they were ever known to be. It used to be said that no one has ever seen a dead donkey, but the proverb was broken that year there were and quantity. The price of a good donkey jumped from 6 or 7 to 12 within three weeks, and soon donkeys were scarcely to be bad at all. Costers and other donkey owners held meetings to discuss the situation, but the price rose to 15. and many a poor man was forced to pay it. It was the worst year on record for coster mongers. Nobody knows to what price the donkeys would have risen, but an enterprising firm of shippers Imported some big freights of donkeys from Spain. These sold like wild Ore, and in a fortnight tbelonkey trade was at Its. old level. Meanwhile the country districts bad been emptied of donkeys to supply the town. London Answers. The Speed -of British Railways. The high grade rates of the big rail ways in Great Britain are shown In a table prepared by the Westminster Gazette. There is not a GO miles an hour run in the lot. but the Caledonian heads the table with a 50 miles per hour run from Forfar to Perth, dis tance 32 miles. The Great Northern comes next as a north going line with 55.3 miles from Teters borough to Fins- bury Park. The biggest thing the Southwestern does is 54.3 miles from Okebampton to Yeoford Junction 14 miles' ran in 1C minutes. The big efforts of the Great Western are made from Paddington to Bath at 54.2 and to Leamington at the rate of 54.3. The Midland has a spurt from Kettering to Nottingham at 53.5. while the pre mier line, the London and Northwest ern, enjoys an historic run from Pen rith to Crewe. 123V4 miles, at the rate of 53.9 or a journey run of 2 hours 17 minutes. Trie Sports Never Die. Bicycling la almost as old as the pres ent generation, golf is far older, though Americans in general seem not to have beard of it till recently; football was played In China more than 1,500 years go and in younger nations ever since they beard of it, and archery and horse manship hark back to prehistoric man and are instinctive in millions. These sports cannot die or even be killed, nor can any others that are liked; they are as irrepressible and Immortal as the human impulse to get out of doors and do something. Saturday Evening Post.
