STONE CUTTING MILL. It is intended to build a mill at Ala mogordo soon for cutting the building stone taken from the quarries there into proper size and shape for use as window sills, door steps, etc. It has now a good market and goes all over the country back east until it conies in to the closest competition with the Indiana building stone and there it Is 1 1 Illl at a disadvantage, as it is not cut to the proper size and shape as the other is before sending out.

Mr. Frazee said he anticipated some objection to his taking the goats to the locality of the dam on the part of the farmers, who would fear that the goats would 'drink too much of the water which they want for irrigation purposes. NEVER TOUCHED US. The Phoenix Gazette says that Phoe nix is the location of more handsome residences and homes than any city between Ft. Worth and Los Angeles. The writer of that stuff was born and raised in the mountains of Arizona and has never been outside of the ter ritory. He has been told that the towns he mentions are pretty big and he naturally presumes that they have nice residences, but be has never seen El Paso nor interviewed anybody that has. WHAT A WHOPPER. Judge William H. Barnes, of Phoe nix, is accused of telling that a man who was camping in 'the mountains in Arizona was awakened from his sleep by the music of a rattlesnake's tail.

Evans Tells About the Good Times Hhe Had During the Celebra tion at Kiel. In the "Log of the Sailor" Rear Ad miral Robley D. Evans tells of his visit to Kiel in this week's Saturday Evening Post, and in the course of it he gives his impressions of Emperor William. Below is an extract from it: "For the purpose of entertaining his naval guests the Emperor had built on the land, near Holtnau. almost at the Kiel entrance to the canal, a large ship of the line. She was full shlp I rigged, had all her yards acioss. and her gun deck was beautifully decorat ed for the dinner which was given on the day following our arrival from Hamburg. When the banquet was over souvenir medals were presented to all of us. and we retired for our cigars to the upper deck, where all were pre sented personally to his majesty and exchanged a few pleasant words with him. I stood near him during the time he conversed with the French admiral and his officers, waiting my turn to be presented, and could not help being impressed by his manner as well as by that of the Frenchmen. They were all ideally polite, but there was. on the part of the emperor, a hearty feeling of success which I did not observe in the manner of the distinguished offl cers who were to sail in the early I morning in company with the Russian fleet. When I was presented to him the emperor gave me a cordial hand shake, and kept others waiting quite five minutes while he talked to me in the most pleasant way. He had many questions to ask me. which he said he would expect me to answer before I left Kiel. His whole manner to the American officers was most cordial." A WOMAN'S AWFUL PERIL. j "There Is only one chance to save your lire and that is tnrougn an opera tion." were the startling word heard by Mrs. I. B. Hunt, of Lime Ridge.

Separated From Her Lover She Ends Her Life Figured in a Sensational Abduction Case, in Which She Was Carried Off By a Young Man. Austin. ""Dear father and mother: Don't blame me for what I have done. I loved him and I told you so. I take my life by my own hands. Delia." This was the note which Delia Tur ner, the 17-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. D. Turner, wrote before she committed suicide at her home two and one-half miles north of Manor at 8 o'clock this morning. After placing the note on a table she shot herself through the heart with a 45-caliber six shooter and when found was in a dy ing condition. She was unconscious and lived only five minutes after fir ing the shot of self-destruct ton. When the suicide was committed the parents of the girl were out of the house. Her father was in the field plowing, he being one of the most prominent and highly-esteemed farm ers in the vicinity of Manor. Her mother was not far from the house. and It was she who first reached the side of her unfortunate daughter. She attempted to revive her. but to no avail, her daughter dying without ut tering a word. Miss Turner figured in a sensational abduction case on March 6. On that day her father made complaint against Bon Perry, a young man of this city. charging him with abducting his daughter, who had been attending school here. The warrant was placed In the hands of Police Officer Gibson, who went to Mllano Junction on the International and Great Northern rail road, where the couple had been de tained. He brought them back to Aus tin, turning the girl over to her father who had been waiting here lor her. Perry was taken to Justice Begley's court and bound over to the grand jury in the sum of $500. which he gave. Mr. Turner took his daughter home, where she had been up to the time s,he committed suicide. Exchange. U. S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICUL TURE. Weather Bureau Monthly Meteorologi cal Summary For El Paso.

If the question were asked Why do the rhinocerl grow their horns upon the nose, instead of on the head, like other mammals? the answer would probably be that they require them for root-digging and such like purposes as well as for war. and the nasal position renders them more generally useful than if they were fixed on the-top of the skull. At present the rhinoceros is the only quadruped which has a horn of this kind, but a study of fossil mammals shows that he is the sole survivor of a vast number of creatures whose natural weapons were built on the same general plan. In fact, in the days of the rhinoceros's early fore fathers, horns of this kind were prob ably much more common than those such as we see on the heads of oxen, antelopes, and sheep. In the course or ages the fashion in wearing horns has undergone a radical change: but the rhinoceros, who is essentially a conservative beast, has stuck to the older method. From "Animal Special istfc" In the March Pearson's. QUESTION ANSWERED. Yes. Au-roat Flower still has the largest sale of any medicine In the civ ilized world.
