Rev. Provincial of the Oblate Fathers Visits Jhis Section. for Customs Officers Shown to Hijinio Garcia. Today. Passed Before Wounded Man One Bv .One,, But He Did Not Recognize Any As His Assailant Accused', Officers Among Them. Right Rev.Father Constantineau, Provincial of the Oblates pi Mary Immaculate, is at present a guest of the Oblate Fathers in Browns ville, having arrived Monday night from a visit to up-river points in the interest of the mission work of his order on the lower Rio Grande. The Reverend Provincial this morning, accompanied by Rev. Father Levoyer, Superior at Brownsville, paid The Herald office an appreciated call this morn ing. Father Constantineau is a very pleasant gentleman and a pro gressive representative of his hurch. His present visit to this section is in the interest of the ex tension of the Oblate mission work here. As reported in Monday's Her ald, one part ot the errand ot Father Constantineau at this time was to visit the Lomita mission ranch in Hidalgo county, which was lately sold by the Oblate Fath ers to Messrs. uonway cc xioit. The final transfer of all stock on the ranch and a bill of .sale of the same to tue purchasers was exe cuted by Father Constantineau on this visit, the amount realized therefor being $9,688.50. This money and other proceeds of the sale of the ranch will be used by the Oblates for the erection of chapels and schools throughout this section, whose present rapid development will create a need for greater school and church facilities than those now in existence. Father Constantineau visited Mercedes Monday, as reported in The Herald, in the interest of the establishment of a Catholic church there, but reports that nothing has been decided definitely in the matter. He also visited Santa Maria and inspected the oldj chapel there, which he found mucn: in need of repair. Efforts will be made to have this chapel repaired, and generally improved. The Reverend Provincial wil remain in Brownsville a day or so longer, and while here probably will take some steps to push the; work of raising the fund for the erection of the proposed Sacred Heart church which the American; Catholics will build here. i This morning at nine o'clock. about a dozen customs officials, in cluding the two inspectors who were charged with the shooting of Higinio Garcia, which occurred near Brownsville on the night of May 4, were taken to the house where the wounded mau is staying, and shown to him, in order to see if he could identify any of them as the persons who are alleged to have halted Garcia and his companion on the night in question. He was unable, however, to identify any of them, and as each one passed in turn, he declared that he did not recognize him as his assailant. This is considered tantamount to a dismissal of the charge against Inspectors Delling and Anglin, the accused officers, and it is supposed that .such will be the result.

Last Friday, May 10, the nine months term of the Hidalgo School was brought to a close with some most appropriate and interesting exercises by the pupils. The last two weeks of school were devoted to written examinations, and the results show decided progress. The songs, recitations, etc. etc., were put forth in the perfect man ner for which Miss Lillian Dough erty is famous. During her several years of service as principal assistant in our school Miss Dougherty has shown self ab negation, administrative ability.and tenacity of purpose of the highest order, and her reward is the satis faction of knowing that her work has been appreciated. Miss Dough erty announces that she now in tends to retire from teaching, and we. all realize that her place, in our school will indeed be hard to fill.

San Benito Lands and Town Lots, Also Large Tracts for Investment. Cheap AN ELEGANT RECEPTION. At the Home of Mr. and Mrs. Kelly. Celebration of Anniversary. Instead of Wedding. Owing to the sudden illness of Lieut. Mack Richardson at Fort Sam Houston, he was unable to come to Brownsville, and his mar riage with Miss Anna Kelly.which was to have taken place last even ing at the home of her parents, Mr. andMrsl Wm. Kelly, in this city, was necessarily postponed. As it happened, however, that the date bad been chosen on account of its being the wed ding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Kelly, it was concluded to hold the reception as planned, making it a celebration of their anniversary. It was a very elegant function. The floral decorations were superb, the color scheme being in green and white. In the parlor, baud some palms with white oleanders weie used with exquisite effect. The large dining room was arrang ed with unusual taste, the mantel being banked with ferns and roses, and the table beautiful with pure white lilies. A huge punch bowl was en: sconced on a round table in one corner, which was also most effec tively banked with ferns. A salad course was served first, followed by ices and cake, with punch of a most delicious brew. Although- much regret was felt on account of the unavoidable post ponement of the wedding, yet it was a very happy event, as the guests experienced sincere pleasure in congratulating their host and hostess upon the celebration of the 37th. anniversary of their marriage, and in wishing for them, many more years of happy wedded life.

(Special) The election yesterday resulted in the re-election of the The most significant tendency which an observer of educational progress sees to-day is that of spe cialization. The time is fast ap proaching when t will be recog nized that merely a general educa tiou, whether on classical or scien tific lines, is not alone a suitable preparation for life.says the Scien tific American. Not that culture is less desirable than formerly, rather it is more desirable, but above this general substructure must be placed a tech nical education which will give that special application to some calling which the coming age will demand. Colleges which ' devote their attention sojely to general culture training will become o; less importance. The institutions nowknown by the various titles of technical colleges, institutes of: technology, and polytechnic instL- -tutes, are the colleges of the twentieth century which will dov most for their students, which will, be in closest touch with the needs of civilization, which will provide. at once the most " cultural the most rational, and. thej most scientific instruction. These -institutions, by whatsoever name designated, will be the important colleges of the future, because? they will give that perfect unity off thought and action, that harmony of theory arid practice, which the needs of the future' demand The Art of Letier-Writins.
