Daring Automobile Ride of George Ken edy and Party at Laredo Across Railroad Bridge. The following from the Laredo Times will be read with interest here, where the principal particip ant is well known: The chief excitement of the Six teenth of Septempber on this side of the Rio Grande at least was the daring feat of Mr. George Kenedy and his automobile guests in riding at full speed across the railroad bridge. When it was reported about the city that Mr. Kenedy had execut ed this feat, and that at full speed, very few people gave any credence to the story and even those who actually witnessed it rubbed their eyes and gazed in mouth-open wonder and admiration. The cross ties upon which the rails are laid across the bridge are much closer together than those of the rema.n der of the railroad and this fact with that of the width of the auto mobile wheels being a little less than the width of the rails, made the performance possible, though by no means one that would have been undertaken by a timid per son. Mr. Kenedy will always hold the record of being the first to cross the Laredo railroad bridge in an automobile. It will be remember ed that only a few months ago an automobile party arrived in this citv from Paris. Texas, on their way to Mexico City and turned back on hnding that trie carnage bridge had been blown down. The San Antonio Fair. Brigadier Genera! J. M. Lee, Command ing Department of Texas, Says Can teen Givc5 Little Encourage- ' mcnt to Drinking. Washington, Sept. 18. Brig. Gen. J. M. Lee, commanding the Department of Texas, in his an nual report says the army is enter ing upon an era of stagnation in promotions. He recommends a compulsory retirement law similar to that of the navy and marine corps. General Lee is positively in fa vor of the re-establishment of the army canteen. He says that 80 per cent of the soldiers drink stimu lants. A majority drink beer and light wines, while a minority drink strong liquors, but only a small percentage drink to excess. Washington, Sept. IS. The an nual report of Brig. Gen. Jesse M. Lee, commanding the Department of Texas, was made public at the War Department today. The Gen eral devoted considerable attention to the canteen question, saying among other things: - "It is a fact, developed by searching investigation, that a strictly regulated 'canteen' gives but little, if any, encouragement to ... f ... . t ... young soiaiers recruits; to Degin drinking, even beer or wine,, while usually with the outside saloons the tendency and practice gives the greatest encouragement, and they include nearly all the stronger al coholic drinks. "A very few old soldiers, not over two or three, with less than half the recruits, are opposed to or indifferent as to the re-establish ment of the cauteen." As a rule the total abstainers did not want the canteen for them seives, but were convinced that it would be a benefit to the company messes and to the men who wanted a miiet and orderly place in the post where they could sit down and take, a glass of beer when they wished to do so. General Lee says: No serious complications have arisen as to 'bnncos' or obstructions due to constructing of jetties or other im provements on either side of the boundary between Mexico and the United States." Fie further says the most agreeable rotations exist between the command ami the Mexican officials military and civil. General Lee also emphasizes the need of a provision by Congress for the promotion of enlisted men to second lieutenancies. The dates as finally agreed upon for Snn Antonio International Fair this year are Nov. 18 to 29 in elusive. The changes in dates by the management was made because of the change of date of the Dallas Fair, The postponement of the open ing day from October 21st, as orig inally announced, to the new date. Nov. IS will cause the Fair Association great loss of time and money but the change was made entirely in the interest of exhibitors and visitors, especially those com ing long distances. As a rule, the month of Novem ber in San Antonio is the most pleasant of the entire year it being neither too warm nor too cool. The postponement will not drive away a single exhibitor in any de partment, but, on the contrary, it will make necessary the construc tion of additional stables and build ings to accommodate those desir ing to show their products from raucii. held, orcliard. garden or factory. The railroads entering San An tonio, and all connecting lines, have already announced rates to this Fair far below an' heretofore made by them, and they will make every effort and preparation to bring more people than ever be fore. Crops have been abundant in al most every neighborhood in Texas this year, and as people always like to come to San Antonio when there is "something special to see" to say nothing of our. all-the-year 'round attractions the attendance at this year's Fair will be a record breaker.

On one occasion, when en gaged in canvassing, lie visited a workingmau's house, in the prin cipal room of which a pictorial re presentation ot me rope taceci an illustration of King William, pious and immortal memory, the act of crossing the Boyne. The worthy man started amazement, and seeing his surprise thejjvoter's wife explained: Shure, my husband's an Orange man and I'm a Catholic." How do you get on together?" asked the astonished politician. Very well, indade, barring the 12th of July, when my husband goes out with the Orange proces sion and comes home drunk." "What then?" "Well, he always takes the Pope down and jumps on him and then goes straight to bed. The next morning I get up early, before he is awake, and take down King William and pawn him and buy a new Pope with the money. Then I give the old man the ticket to get King William out." Tit-Bits. Is Possible For Young Army Officers, Says Major General Corbin. Temp tation to Live Beyond Means. Washington, Sept. 18. Only the Simple Life' ' is possible for young army officers, according to Major General Corbin, commanding the First division. In his annual re port General Corbin says there is too frequently evidence that there are officers in the service not mind ful of their financial obligations. The number of complaints on this point, he says, calls for drastic treatment. The general then lays down these principles: "The moment an officer begins living beyond his means he should be subjected to discipline. Young officers joining the service should be admonished that for them only the simple life is possible. The moment an officer is possessed with an uncontrollable desire for any dther life he, as a duty to himself, as well as to his regiment, should separate himself from the service and enter the fields in which the material rewards admit of more luxury of living." There are now 13,355 troops in the Philippines, including 51S1 native scouts, and General Corbin recommends that there be no re duction in this force. He says the conditions as to peace in the islands are better than at any time since American occupation with the ex ception of Samar. A reduction in expenses amounting to $1,500,000 is reported as having been accom plished during the administration of General Corbin. No Dogs Allowed. Our Dumb Animnlc. It happened the other day on the Leehigh Valley railroad. The train had just left Easton, and the con ductor was making his first round, when he observed a small white dog with a bushy tail and bright black eyes sitting cosily on the seat beside a young lady so hand some that it made his heart roll over. But duty was duty, and he remarked in his most deprecatory manner: "I'm very sorry, but it's against the rules to have dogs in the pas senger cars." "Oh, my! i that so?" and she turned up two lovely brown eyes at him beseechingly. "What in the world will I do?" "We'll put him in a baggage car, and he'll be just as happy as a robbing in spring." "What! put my nice white dog in a dirty baggage car?" "I'm awfully sorry, Miss, but the rules of this company are in flexible." "I think it's awful mean, and I know somebody will steal it," and she showed a half notion to cry that nearly broke the conductor's heart, but he vvas firm, and sang out to the brakeman: "Here, Andy, take this dog over into the baggage car, and tell 'em to take the best kind of care of him." The young lady pouted, but the brakeman reached over and picked the canine up as tenderly as though it was a two-wcek's-old baby, but as he did so a strange expression came over his face, and he said hastily to the conductor: "Here, you hold him a minute," and he trotted out the car door and held onto the brake wheel. The conductor no sooner had his hands on the dog than he looked around for a hole to fall through. - "Wh-vvh-why, this is a worsted clog!" "Yes, sir," said the miss, de murely. "Didn't you know thatr" He laid the dog down on the owner's lap, and walked out on the platform, where he .stood half an hour in the cold :r, :ug to think of a hymn tune to .-ii;t the worst sold man m the Leehigh Valley rocd.
