Brownsville. Texas as second-class matter. FRIDAY. OCTOBER 11, 1907 HEAVY RAINS AT MONTEREY Service Damaged Done By the Severe Storm. tremendous Volume of Water is Flowing Down the Santa Catarina River and 4 Will Affect the Rfo Grande at Brownsville. As a result of a tempest of rain which struck Monterey, Mex., here is a tremendous volume of water running down the bed of the Santa Catarina river, which is a serious menace especially as the hed ofthe river is usually dry at all times, except for a minute stream, and many people are in the ixabit of crossing. A number of gendarmes have been detailed to patrol both sides -of the river to prevent accidents. Another result of the storm has $een to flood the power house of the electric street car company and .paralyze the street car traffic. A large force of men is at work repairing the damage, but another 3ay must elapse before cars will begin running again. The lack of -Service is a serious matter for a large number of people far from the center ol the city on the elec tric car lines. A bolt of lightning struck in the "vicinity of the Purisima - Plaza last 'sight and burned out light and telephone connections in scores of houses, doing some damage in a few residences where the lightning. following the wjres, burned the walls and fixtures. 'Ought to Be Trust Magnate. "What are you doing with that array of pistols in your showcase," asked a customer at a Galveston gun store. "You can't sell them trnder the law passed by the last legislature without being taxad to 4&ath." The reply was that the pistols were not for sale. Further inquiry, however, developed the fact that the dealer considered it was not against the law to make long term leases of the weapons. 1 "If a man will pay the price," he said, "I'll lease him a gun for fifty years. That's not against the -law." Not Here. "The San Antonio Express claims that the hen fruit crop is larger than all the other fruit crops com bined.

JHCHENEY & Co., Toledo, O Sld by Druggists 75c the efors JUSTICE. How He Taught His Sovereign a Valu able snd Lasting LccGcn.' The following ptory is told of one of the Arabian caliphs of Cordova: El Haccheni,' the son and successor of Abdcrahman III., desiring to en large his palace, proposed to pur chase from a poor woman a piece of ground that lay contiguous to it, and when she could not he prevailed on to part with the inheritance of her ancestors the caliph's officers took by force what they could not otherwise obtain. The poor woman applied to Ibu Bechin, the cadi, or chief magis trate, of Cordova, for justice. The case was a. delicate and dangerous one to meddle with, but the cadi re solved, even at the sacrifice of his life, to recall to his master's recol lection a truth that the best of rulers will sometimes forget. He mounted his ass and, taking a large sack with, him, rode to the palace of the caliph. The prince happened to be sitting in a pavilion that had been erected in the poor woman's garden. ' "Prince of the faithful," said Be chin, prostrating himself, IT have come to ask permission of thee to fill this sack with the earth upon which thou standest." Hacchcm, although considerably surprised at such a request, cheer fully allowed mm to lul his, sack. When this was done the cacli be sought Ids sovereign to crown his goodness by aiding him m loading his ass with its burden. This ex traordinary request surprised the caliph still more, but he yielded to the cadi's entreaty and attempted to raise the sack. It was so heavy, however, that he could scarcely lift it. "How thinkest thou that I can lift such a burden?" asked Hac chcm, laughing. "Trince of believers," replied Bechin, with impressive gravity, "this sack, which thou findest so heavy to bear, contains but a small part of the ground that 3'ou took by violence from the rightful owner. How, then, shall 3-ou be able at the day of judgment to support the weight of the whole ?" The caliph, struck with -this adr dress, embraced the cadi, thanked him, acknowledged his fault and im mediately restored to the poor wom an the field of which she had been despoiled, together with the pavilion and everything it contained. The praise due to a despotic sov ereign capable of such action is in ferior only to that which should he accorded to the cadi who induced him to perform it. Took Pity on Him. One of Jfew York's wealthiest settlement workers was recently touring the city streets on a visit of inspection when his attention was attracted to the strenuous efforts of a ragged little chap trying to scoop up three or four pieces of wood ly ing on the sidewalk. They were the last of a lot he held tightly clasped in his thin arms, and in diving for what was left on the ground his load was in danger of being scatter ed. "Wait, now," called out the young millionaire, advancing. 'Til pick them up for you." With a swift upward and down ward look of sympathy at the plain ness of the young man's attire, the small boy decisively shook his head. fDafs all right, boss," he said commiseratingly, "you kin keep 'em." New York Times. n Where Cats Are Saluted. At the government house in Poo na, India, every cat which may hap pen to pass out of the front door after dark is saluted by the sentry, who presents arms to pussy. Tradi tion relates that in 1838 Sir Bobert Grant, governor of Bombay, died in the government house. On the even ing of the day of his death a cat was seen to leave the house by the front door and to walk up and down a particular path where the late governor had been in the habit of strolling after sunset. A Hindoo sentry observed this and told a priest, who declared that in the cat wa3 Governor Grant'3 soul, and it should be saluted. As the particu lar cat could not be identified by the sentry, it was decided to present ms to" all the cats. r An Apt Quotation. Lord Kelvin, when he was Sir William Thomson, had as professor of. natural philosophy an assistant named Day, who took his lectures for him in his absence. When the professor returned, the students would listen eagerly to him, and for the first ten minutes or so he spoke clearly and intelligently to all. By and by, however, some new idea would suggest itself, and he. would follow it out in his lecture, getting more and more beyond the depth of his hearers until at last not one of them could understand Him. On one occasion a student remarked, "Work while it i3 yet Day, for the (k)night cometh when no man can work." To contradict certain talk and to pat the consuming pub lic in possession of the tf uthf we say in plain wot cfs that no one in this town can sell as good coffee as Abficklesf Afiosa fot as little money Misbranded and make-believe Mocha and Java, or coffee sold loose out of a bag or a bin, is not as good value for the money, nor can it be sold at as narrow profit, nor reach the consumer under as favorable conditions.
