DEPARTMENT Lai, Sin k ma, Isaac Lewis' HAVING SUCCEEDED TO THE BUSINESS LATELYUWNED BY H. B. CLAFIIN & Co. CORNER AUSTIN AND FIFTH STREETS, We would Respectfully Invite Attention to our unusually well assorted stock of Dry Goods, Embroideries, Clothing, Benls' - FuraliBiIni - Goods, Carpets :. and PRICES GUARANTEED AGAINST Corner tlx Oransre Growing in Mexico. Denver Republican. Probably one of tho first matters to attract the attention of Americans of small capital after tho opening of tho Mexican National railway for through travel will bo the cultivation of tropi clal fruits in the viclnity;of Monterey. At a short distance from Montoroy tho level of tho country drops consid erably bolow what it is at that city, and on this lower plain tho soil is rich and tropical fruits can bo grown in tho greatest abundance. Tho oranges grown in that locality arc very flne.andlf they wero placed upon tho markets of tho largo Western cities they would command a ready salo. Monterey is so mucli nearer St. Louis and Chicago than California ii, that it seems that orango growers ro sldlng near tho Mexican cities ought to bo ablo to compete successfully with men engaged in tho samo busi ness on tho Pacific coast. But this would depend very much upon tho manner in which thoy handled tho fruit and tho condition m which It would bo found upon reaching tho market. It is not probable that tho Mexicans will, very soon nt least, competo suc cessfully with thoCllfornlans Their methods are too crude, and they aro, themselves, not ontorprlslng. But livo, wido-awako Yankees could go down thoro and mako monoy. It would not tako long for them to learn all about tho businoHS of orange grow ing. They would plant tho boat va rieties and cultivate them In tho most approved manner. They would gather thofrultjwlth tho least posslblo expense unci snip u in goou coumuou to tho American markets Tho opportunity to do this is now open, and In faot has been for sovoral years. Tho Mexican National has boon completed to Monteroy for somo time past. Not much attention, how over, has been drawn to business openings thero for Americans. This has been due largely, .no doubt, to tho fact that very fow Americans have vial foil ATnntnrnv. Tlin rnllrond not being open all the way to tho City of Mexico, tourist travel uusgouo oy mo wav of Mexico Central. But tho Mexican National will ho opened for business within a fow months, und then direct attention will bo called to tho resources of tho country through which it runs. Old Stand.) :.

This she showed to Mr. Stappenbeck, her brother, who bottled it and submitted it last night to a chemist Mr. Charles A, R. Camp bell. He submitted it to apartial analysis and has found a. strong de posit of sulphate of copper (blue stpne) in the liquid. This is deadly poison. The matter is being investi gated. Lynched by Germans.
