Cochran, a traveling rep resentative ofj the Maverick-Clarke Litho company, San Antonio, was :ound in a dying condition in his room at the Miller hotel about 7 o'clock this morning. An empty strvchnine bottle on the dresser in his room was a mute witness of the fact that the young man had taken poison. That this was done with suicidal intent was proven by an unsigned note which was on the dresser. The handwriting in the note corresponded to the man's signature on the hotel register, and the note was as follows: A dispatch from Houston tells what an expert thinks-of alfalfa grown in the Brownsville country - This statement of Prof. Tracy backs up what The Herald has often stated, that the alfalfa grown in this section had no superior in the United States. The dispatch men tioned is as follows: Prof. S. M. Tracy, special agent of the Department of Agriculture of the general government, was in the city, a few hours today. One of his first moves was to meet his old friend, Prof. H. P. Attwater of the Southern Pacific Railway.

Two of the syndicates could not afford to buy it at any price, but the third is smaller and could not afford to pay the exorbitant sum now asked for it if the men back of it did not see a great future in this new in dustry. The facts about the way in which the guayule is being bought became known in Monterey recently, and those to whose ears the information came said that it would mean a development to the i Euavule trade as has never been . :nown before in the Republic. ; t(,,nniated self destruction.

No, it's here. three-cornered fight that has just begun and which no doubt will mean so much to everyone in Mex ico who is interested in guayule. These three factions, which, taken together, would represent an un limited amount of capital, have had their representatives in Mexico for the last week or so making advance contracts for guayule at a price of $30 a ton. It is also whispered that they have been try ing to get hold of guayule lands, but there is no information to be had of any actual sales of land for this purpose. The factories at Jimulco, Gomez Palacio, Torreon and Viesca are all running over time these days, probably as a result of the purchases that are being made by the representatives of the three combines of capital, and there are rumors that other factories are to be built. There are about twenty-five other fac tories in operation, which are handling their utmost capacity, but the ones in the citie mentioned are the biggest and most important. !The Standard Oil imprests are day, and did not want to be ered with it, which indicated that he was considering the rash step et'pn then.
