There are a number of other art icles also included in the free list but the new tariff has not been re ceived, and it is impossible to enumerate them. According to figures obtained from Well's Fargo's Express of fice here there were shipped from this point during the past twelve months ending August 31, 1201 barrels of fish, aggregating about 180,150 pounds. This is a very good showing for an infant indus "try, and the next twelve months ''will show a decided increase. The board of review, appointed some time ago b the commission ers' court, on the drainage district in this section is still pursuing its labors. Drainage ditches 1 and 2 have been permanently located, and work was begun on ditch No. 3, this morning. No estimate has yet been made of the actual cost of drainage. The board consists of Jno. D. Hill, Dr. Bell and J. W. Davis, with E. B. Gore, engineer. The Herald will give a complete report when the board has finished the work. Among the arrivals in this city Saturday were Dr. A. Carrillo, of Monterey, director of the civil col lege of the State of Nuevo Leon. and vice-president of the state board of health, and his sister-in-law, Sra. Solcdad Rocha deQuiroz. They came to leave their daughters, Rosa Carrillo and Guadalupe Gar za Rocha, as pupils in the convent school in this city. Dr. Carrillo is very much interested in yellow fev cr conditions. Monterey and vicin ity, he says, are wide awake to the possibility of infection and have 4. prepared accordingly. By hard and persistent work they have succed d in totally exteralatit: the stegomyia, or yellow fever mos quito. Brownsville and Matamoros need not fear any transmission of fever by way of Monterey. Our only danger, he thinks is from Nuevo Laredo, crossing the river at that point and coming on the American roads. The doctor, Sra. Rocha de Quiroz and two younger children, returned home this morn ing over the Mexican National. A MATTER OFffLW The baseball game on the post diamond yesterday afternoon be tween the Brownsville second nine and the Mexican team resulted in an overwhelming victory for the Mexicans by a score of about 17 to 7.,The town boys could not seem to connect, and the Mexican team stacked up runs until there was no fun in it for the town team. The Brownsville team did not keep up the reputation of the uniforms they wore, but went down and out, feeling they could do better next time. Eleven innings were played and the score on the Mexican side kept getting larger, while the town boys did most of their scor ing with the wrong end of the pencil. One especially sensational play was made in the right field by one of the Mexican players. A long fly came his way, and he stood like a statue, with one bare hand extended. When the ball struck the hand it gave a resound ing whack, but the clutch was a death grip, and as the player thrcv the ball home he shouted, Hurrah for de Messican boys!" The town boys say they are not at all satisfied with the way things went yesterday and will show the Mexicans how to play ball next Sunday. PERSONALS. FOR AFTERNOON TEAS Prompt.
