both the Spanish and English

this morning about sunrise. The
lady had been troubled with
asthma for some time but the
immediate cause of her death
resulted from a complication of
diseases. Last night she was
unable to sleep, and & portion of
the time was consumed in walk-
ng around the rooms at their
home, No. 113 West Lead avenue,
and on becoming tired of this
occupation she would sit down
and converse with her husband
on matters pertaining to her
ealth and of the school work.
At about 6 o'clock this morning
she remarked that she was very
sick, and shortly after a mes
senger was sent to summon a
physician, but before he arrived
the breath of life had passed out
f her body as she lay in the arms
of her husband. The shocking-
news of her death soon spread to
all parts of the city and was
telegraphed to the lady's relatives.

H. T. Maybery and family of
Datil were in town Tuesday on
their way to El Paso to attend
the carnival. Several weeks ago
Mr. Maybery bought of Abran
Abeyta three or four captive
wolves which he has since used
as decoys to trap other wolves.
Thus far he has succeeded in
trappinj or poisoning nine of the
animals. According to Mr.
Maybery's report wolves commit
almost incredible ravages among
flocks and herds on the ranges,
often mangling and killing calves
and sheep for no other purpose
than simply to be killing some
thing. Capt. A. B. Fitch was in the

While in the city be expressed
the hope that the committee
having the matter in charge
would yet dc..de to construct the
proposed intf r-oceanic canal by
the Panama route. He gave
several valid reasons for his be
lief that this is the better route.
Among these reasons was one
that has not been accorded the
consideration it deserves, namely,
the greater danger to which a
canalalong the Nicaragua route
would be exposed from earth
quakes and volcanic activity.
Experience has taught many
costly and sometimes frightful
lessons to the effect that either of
these agencies may in a moment's
time destroy the most substantial
work of human hands.
