Pictures As Port fayed by Masters of the Camera Good photography is an art within itself, and a careful study of good photographs should give as much pleasure as a similar study of the product of the painter's brush. The advance in photography in the past few years has been phenomenal, and it is with the purpose of illustrating this in all its phases, and further instructing the public generally in the work of the camera, that Mr. Feldman has col lected this exhibit from among his friends of the art world. The characteristics, individualities and ec centricities are as marked in the work of good photographers as in that of painters. Mr. Feld man takes pride in offering El Pasoans this unusual opportunity to see the work of masters of the camera shown side by side. Exlribition hours ten to five daily, March 10th to 25th.

Edgar Beecher Bronson Has Killed Game in the Same Territory Traversed by Mr. Roosevelt in the Dark Continent. Sufficiently timely to be known as the book of the hour, an El Pasoan will, on March 26, publish the story of his experiences in big- game shooting In the wilds of Africa at a time when the subject is of vital human interest because of the experiences of mat hunt er hero, Theodore Roosevelt. Instead of the native name, "Bwana Tumbo," appearing on the title page of the new wild game book, "In Closed Territory," a name as well known to El Paso business men as ihe other hunt er's is to the world of politics, will or nament the fly leaf of the volume. It is Edgar Beecher Bronson. ranchman, banker, author, who might be called "Bwana Bronson," after the style of nomenclature used by the natives of the closed territory. Former El Vaso Banker. The El Pasoan's book will appear from the press of A. C. McClurg & Co., of Chicago, on March 26, and already he is receiving a number of compli mentary advance notices from scien tists and sportsmen In the United States and England. The author was formerly president of the EI Paso Na tibnal bank, and was one of the best known financiers of the southwest, while he was engaged in the banking business in El Paso. He was also a New Mexico ranchman, having- owned a large cattle ranch in the Panhandle. One of his first published books was "Reminiscences of a Ranchman." He la now located in Xew York, where he has been doing extensive literary work for the magazines and other current literature. Preceded Roosevelt Party. Preceding the Roosevelt hunting par ty by 10 months, Bronson spent four months' treking over the same unchart ed territory as the former president did on the hunting trip which recently ended and which attracted worldwide attention. The ship upon which Mr. Bronson sailed for New York passed '"The Admiral." upon which Roosevelt tfnd his party of faunal naturalists were being carried to the happy hunting grounds of south and east Africa While In east Africa the southwest ern ranchman and banker was enter tained at the Juja ranch made famous as the place where Col. Roosevelt was a guest on the first leg of his hunting expedition, and drove the famous white mules afterwards used by Roosevelt. He was the guest of William North rup McMillan, who also acted as host "to the former strenuous president, and the new bcok. 4Sln Closed Territory," bears on tlis dedication page the fol lowing significant statement: "To the stanchest friend and stead iest shot, "William Xorthrup McMillan, this book Is affectionately dedicated by the author." Beautiful Illustrations. Following a preface by the author is an Introduction by TV. T. Hornaday, of Xew York. The book, which contains 2S4 pages, is profusely illustrated in sepia half tones made from photo graphs which the author made while tramping through the bush of tile Afri can wilderness. A number of these illustrations are masterpieces, and the collection of pelts made in Africa dur ing the 10 months hunt are artistical ly arranged in one of the pictures, and are said to be the finest collection of wild -same trophies yet exhibited in this country, and second only to the remarkable collection prepared by Col. Roosevelt and his party for the Smith sonian institute. Bronson's bag contained all the spe cies of big game to be found in Africa, except the bongo, his rhino kill being one of the record kills of the year; an elephant wai also slain by the El Paso an, which was 11 feet four inches In height and 27 feet eight inches from the tip of the trunk to the tip of the tail. The de-tails of these kills are graphicallv described by the big game hunter m his book, and at times his descriptions of the experiences he had i ecreiiy i Any Taily May Do It at Home Costs Xothsns: o Try.

He ves one of the few Americans who were admitted to the closed terri tory nefore the coming of Roosevelt, and his experiences we're those of the pioner-r in hunting big game. Permis sion was granted him to hunt In the British domains of east Africa by .the B'-Itish protectorate, and to be in the closed country without a pass is a pen al offence. However, passes are issued to Americans upon application, as the big t;r)re is classed as vermin by the natives, according to the author's de scriptions. Stalking Bip: Game. Stalking big game in the dense for ests where daylight hardly penetrated even at noon time, treking across the plait's, which he says were hotter than Death valley, setting the scampering horde of monkeys off Into a chatter by the breaking of a twig, the experiences of the El Paso hunter were as varied as they were thrilling. Xor were these trips without the element of personal danger, which gives the big game hunting its keenest zest. When the silence was so deep that it was necessary to hold his breath to listen, there was not va moment that he might not come face to face with some old jungle warrior who could hold as much lead in 'his system as a man could carry in a tub, ready to fight for possession of the path by right of conquest, the hunting trips into the African wilds were not as tame as a Sunday school picnic in a dry district Different Kinds of Shooting. In some places, the author says, game was so scarce that it required exhaust ing, nerve racking experienpes to get v'thin shooting distance of big game, v,hilc in other localities game was so r.lntiful that one might light a cig aret and go out and bowl over a big "wildebeeste" bull before the cigaret was smoked. Sometimes he was In the midst of thousands of animals of every kind -elephants, rhinos, zebras, buffalo, deer, hyena all huddled together like Kipling's Jungle folks before the rain came. Fc-asting on ragout of giraffe tongue, zebra steak, buffalo tail soup and elephant chops, the hunter says it will be hard to accustom himself to the meat of the barnyard and range. Frequently Mr. Bronson refers to his experiences In the west, and in one chapter he describes the work of break ing a bronco to a saddle as compara tive sport when considered with Afri can hunting. So plentiful is the big game in this socalled closed territory, Bronson says, that the S. P. C. -. would go out of business In that field if they depended upon the-native residents for encouragement, as "vermin" is the word they apply to all of the big game of the territory. So plentiful Is it that at ;tlmes on the Uganda railway, the author says, the trains are blocked by running into swarms of the wild ani mals, many of which are run down. On page 207 of the book Is a graphic description of an experience on this line, when a man eatrng lion jumped through a car window, dragged away a man and devoured him. An Interesting Publication. The El Paso author's book, the ad vance proof of which has been received here, is a genuine contribution to the current literature of the present day. He has a sense "of humor which re lieves the tenseness of the strain which is caused by his thrilling experiences. His descriptions of the great forests and jungles open a new field of word painting and alluring. Instructive de tail. His descriptions of the African rub ber forest, the people and their quaint dress and manner, and a typical lion hunt In the jungle country, are among his finest descriptive chapters. It is in describing the thrilling incidents in the jungle that he excels even the splen did descriptions of nature and people. Friends of Mr. Bronson in El Paso are awaiting the publication of "In Closed Territory," as his experiences In Africa have been as closely followed as have those of the other great game hunter, Bwana Roosevelt.

Fletcher Merill has been appointed as constable of the Cochise ""precinct vice George Kiser, resigned. Dr. W. B. Phillips Savs There Are Three Classes of Minerals There. Dr. W. B. Phillips, of Austin, Texas, director of the bureau of economic ge ology of the university of Texas, has returned from a trip to the iJunynopa nvning district, in the western tart of the state of Chihuahua. His special mis sion was an investigatoin of the Caro lina and other mining1 properties in the vicinity of Hasend.ta creek, a tributary of the Rio Aros, as the headwaters of the Yaqji river are locally called. He also exanTned the Cinco de Mayo, Tres Air-egos and Utah properties. Three Classes of Minerals. "The mines of Guaynopa," says Dr. Phillips, "contain three classes of min erals: First, silver-lead; second, gold bearing quartz; third, gold bearing copper All -the copper ores at the sur face inthat camp, where they havs been oxidized, show free gold, some times running several ounces per ton. In fact, one particular feature of that district Is that It shows gold In all sur face ores. I made continuous pannlngs for trree days, and never failed to get co..rs of gold. "Geologically, there are Immense de posits of limestones, through whion dykes of porphyry and basalt have in truded. The limestones have been largely eroded. "The ore deposits occur In the neigh borhood of the porphyry Intrusions. The canyons have cut the formation in places to great depth, for instance, as deep as 2S00 feet. These have exposed the outcroppings of the veins, and the exploration work has mostly been done in the ennyons. There is a great deal of disintegrated lime, or "wash," cov ering the slopes of the mountain, cover ing the rock, but where the workings are the formation appears to be por phyrite. Plenty- of Water. "A feature of especial note is the plentiful water supply in these moun tains, suitable for water power. For in stance, in the Hasendita creek there is a fall of 700 feet. The Aros river, which flows within three miles of the heart of the district, offers great sites for power plants, and there will be no difficulty to generate and transport abundant electrical powers for all min ing operations. It is certainly a very promising mining country. The Quitmans. "Of course, I am principally interest ed In advancing the mining Interests of west Texas, and purpose establishing a summer camp in the Quitman moun tains, which, together with the Diablo mountains, I consider one of the richest mineral fields in the United States." Col. Jack Fleming Says 3few Mexico Mines Have Large Ontpnts. Col. Jack Fleming, for many years mayor of Silver City, X". M., Is at the Zieg-er. He was one oX the most con spicuous mining men attending the miners' convention a few years ago in this city. He says there Is a steady flow of bullion into Silver City from the Mo gollon mountains. .Continuing, he said: "Mr. .Craig's "Last Chance and the So corro Mines company shipped $12,000 worth of bullion, representing three days output. The veins of that moun tain range outcrop boldly and are very wide. The "Last Chance' is turning- out 100 tons a day, and the Socorro from 100 to 150 tons. The ores average $20 a ton, onethird of the values being gold and twothirds silver. The ;elns are immense fissures between quartzite and porphyry. The cost of mining and milling the ores Is $6 a ton. Burro Monntaln. "The Burro Mountain Copper com pany has 3,000,000 of 4 percent copper ore blocked out. The Chemung Copper company, a Pittsburg company, which has been developing for tnree years, has an equal showing, and the Savanna Conppr company has 15,000,000 tons blocked out. The railroad grading is confined to the vicinity of the Burros, prepaartory to rushing it through when the hug'e concentrating plants are com .pleted. "The silver mines of Chloride flat, which produced $4,000,000 years ago, are affording a good living for Chlo riders. Shiiiments used to be made running $5000 a ton, and even $700 a sack. The old gold placers are still worked by the Mexicans. "I am here with a car of ore from the Burros, running 40 percent cop per." BACK FROM GUAXOPA. Dr. TV. B. Phillips, of Austin. Texas, returned last evening from a trip to the Guanopa mining district in western Chihuahua, and returns to his home to night. constipation permanently by proper personal co-operation with the bene ficial effects of Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna, when required. The forming of regular habits is most im portant and vrhile endeavoring to form them the assistance of Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna is most val uable, as it is the only laxative which acts without disturbing the natural functions and without debilitating and it is the one laxative which leaves the internal organs in a naturally heaithy condition, thereby really aiding one in that way. To get its beneficial effects buy the genuine manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co. only, and for sale by all leading druggists. Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna is never classed by the well-informed with medicines which make extravagant and unfounded claims to cure habitual constipation without personal co-op-oration.
