J With the ooenine of the New Year, the postoffice of Arroyo, Cameron County Texas, will be come a. thing ofi the past, an order having been issued by the depart raent abolishing the office. From the end of this year the busits heretofore handled by the Arrojo office will go through thepobtoffice of Harlingen Arroyo is one of the oldest post offices on the border, having been headquarters for the distribution of the mail for a large territory sur rounding the Arroyo Colorado for many years. Arroyo was former ly one,of the principal stations on the Alice and Biownswiile btagt line. It was quite a busy cenier for traders in hides, wool, bone afr- ntiri th.- nostcihce mere iva? one of the most important rural offices in the county. It was- inoatpH in the 1 ire general store of Christian Baldui, and Mr. Bii Lduf held the position of pohtmai-.ter of Arroyo for twenty-five yeais. The vanishing ot old land4narks Hl-P thfsf is a necessary result of the new order of things on the lower Rio Grande. Of course none regret the change.yet there is some thing akin to pathos in the fading away of old institutions tint have been so long familiar to the old timers" in this region, and the closing of the Arroyo office will no doubt awaken reminiscences of interest to many who liayi known the place in by-gone days. Who is there, that was wont in former time; io make" the trip oc casionally to and from Brownsville over the old Alice and Brownsville stage line, that does not remember the Arroyo station, situated near the beautiful estuary that is known to history as the Arroyo Colorado; with several huge pyramids of bones standing in its rear? Those ' niles ' of bleaching bone3 i bought by Mr. Balduf during-th great drouth, more for the purpose of givng employment to the poor Mexicans who gathered them, than as an investment,- though it is said he afterwards sold them at a good profit. Like the famed Pyramids of Egypt, they were the subject of endless speculation, both asrto their object and as to how they were ever piled so high, the high est being considerably higher than the building near which they stood. The stop at Arroyo, with its in teresting surroundings and the friendly greeting from Postmaster and Merchant Balduf, pleasantly punctuated the monotony of the long stage ride, forming an event -hich help to lighten the tediumJ of the journey, which used to oc cupy two days and a night. The coming of the railroad left Arroyo to one side of the highway of travel, and'now that the post- office has been discountinued, it will be less visited than ever. THE WtAlttER.
