One of the saddest deaths that has occurred in Brownsville in many a day was that of little Nettie, one of the twin daughters of Mrs. and Mrs. B- E. Thomas, of Run, which occurred last Saturday night. The parents started from home Saturday morning to bring the other twin, little Lottie, who had been sick for two weeks, to Browns ville for medical treatment. When the family reached Harlingen, lit tle Nettie was in the best of health, romping and playing with her brother over the platform at the depot. About eight o'clock she was taken sick, and although all was done that was possible, the death angel hovered near and at 7 o'clock Saturday the spirit of lit tle Nettie winged its flight to Him who said" Suffer little children to come unto Me, and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of heaven." The little girl was a lovely child, and with her twin sister was the light of the home; just beginning to take notice of the wonderful world which she had brightened for one short year and thirteen days, the maker cull ed the little flower from its earthly garden to blosom In the garden of God. Cholera infantum was the dread disease which sapped the little life, and brought grief to parents and brothers and sisters. May an all-wise creator bring con solation to the afflicted family, is the sincere wish of This Herald, which is joined in b3f the mawy friends of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas in Brownsville. The remains were carried to Run on the 1 o'clock train and will be laid to rest in the cemetery there. PERSONALS. Dr. Jose Garcia, of San Diego, arrived in the city Saturday even ing. Miss.

A MATTER OF HEALTH pill POWDER Absolutely Pare HAS JtO SUBSTITUTE COMMITTED SUICIDE. Corporal Thorpe, of Company K, Fort , Brown, Snoots Woman and Then " Kills Himself. This morning about 1 :30 o'clock, two pistol shots rang out in the vicinity of the county jniJ. Inves tigation revealed the dead body of Corporal Thorp, of Co. K, Fort Brown, lying in the street, and a few feet away a woman named Librada, who is well known around town, was found with a pistol wound in the left breast just above the heart, which may prove fatal. Genaro Padr6n, who with two other women, was walking down the street with the Librada wo man, was wounded in the leg by the same bullet that entered the breast of the wounded woman. The soldier then placed the muzzle of the gun in his own mouth and fir ed, the bullet penetrating the brain and lodging beneath the scalp on top of the head. Death was almost instantaneous. It is not known exactly what the trouble was about, but witnesses testified that Thorp followed the women from a dance near the post last night, and when a block beyond the jail he called to the Librada woman, and she stepped off the sidewalk into the ditch beside the walk and asked what was wanted. The soldier re plied that he wanted to see her. Librada replied that she wanted nothing to do with him, where upon the soldier ptoduced a pistol and fired two shots which did the work mentioned above. Doubtless thinking he had killed the woman Thorpe then proceeded to finish Jiis work by putting a bullet through his own head. Reports say there had beeu trouble a few days ago, and the shooting last night was the outcome. Tiik Hf.r ald is unable to learn whether or not Corporal Thorpe had expressed any intention of committing the fatal deed, or became angered by the woman's refusal to talk to him, and fired the fatal shots in the heat of passion. . An inquest was held last night by Judge Gavito sitting as coroner, and verdict was rendered in ac cordance with the above. Cornoral Thome enlisted in Chicago where his pcopl. reside, and was about 24 years old. The remains are at the Brownsville Undertaking company's establish ment aw'aiting instructions from his relatives. If no instructions are received the body will be laid to rest in the National cemetery. The Hkrald was pleased to meet this morning G. B.
