"Miss Tenev was em ployed by Dr. Crippen as a typist.

''The letter follows: "My dear Louise and Tfobert. "I hardly know how to write to you of my dreadful loss. The shock to me has been so dreadful that I am hardly able to control myself. My poor Cora is gone, and to make the shock to me more dreadful, I did not even see her at the last- The Mythical Trip.

Unfortunately on the way out my poor Cora caught a severe cold, and not having, while traveling, a chance to take care of herself, it settled on her lungs, later to develop into pleuro pneumonia.

The Herald does not depend on one news asso ciation to furnish it news, but it has the service of several, including the highest paid authorities in the country on the different topics treated. The Herald has the largest editorial force and the best paid writers and local reporters of any paper in the entire Southwest and always prints the news first, most completely and most accurately. ' The Herald has 200 correspondents in the towns of the southwest to supply the news while it is fresh. The Herald will guarantee that it spends three times as much money for mining and southwestern news as any other paper in the southwest. Its check Sooks are open for investigation. Its southwestern news is not clipped with the scissors. The Herald publishes the biggest features to be purchased in the newspaper market, including the products of the best cartoonists in the world. It costs The Herald twice as much money as any other El Paso paper to give the people of El Paso and the Southwest the news, but as a result The Herald has three times the circulation of any other El Paso paper and can prove it which is what counts. The Herald goes into homes only where it is paid for because people want it; no free distribution to boost up a false circulation. Merchants get results when they advertise in The Herald; that's why they do it. The Herald's books are always open, to courts or business men. The Herald will compare figures with any paper at any time. Any business man can see The Herald's books or any committee of business men can have them investigated at any time they wish.

San Antonio." Tex., July 15. The cam paign for' governor will close on next Saturday on which date the Deocrati3 primaries will be held. The con.ct has been one of the most bitter and hard fought that Texas has ever known. O. B. COLO.IITT, Choice of El Paso "Rlnpr." While the prohibition iss e has been foremost, yet all of the candidates have indulged In bitter personal denunci ation of each other. This has caused th lines all over the state to b more tensely drawn and it is ve-y probable that but few votes wlM be changed be tween now and the date of the ol-ctlon. The only new feature recently was the injection of the Bailey issue into the campaign by his taking the stump for Poindexter and the fierce attack on Bailey by Davidson In his Dallis and other" speeches. It Is doubtful if either will have much effect for Bailev's osi tlon was already known and Davidson said nothing about Bailey wh'ch he ha? not already said. In the consideration of the issues in the campaign, the personalities pf the different candidates have played less part than is usual in the campaign. In communities -vhere the contestants have not spoken, the citizens at large arv well Informed on the issue vi'- know little of the individuality of the iren, one of whom will be the governor (t the state for the next two years. Johnson Mot Rrillinnt. Of those In the race Cone Johnson, ol Tyler, Is probably the most brilliant and is by far the greatest orator, rank ing with Bailey himself in that par ticular. As a ready debater he has but fen equals and everywhere he has spoken he has been able to :wav l.i audience almost to a man. Often In hi denunciation of the liquor traffic and It evils he has had half of the audience weeping and often at the close of .d dres sobbing mien and women hrve climbed upon the stage to shako hia I hand. He is probably the most danger--"! , man on the tump for an imperii lent ' listener to interrupt. He i rend virn 1 his rnartee, which is stinging inri .lis j cnmflting, but never cruel. He ha hid The largest audiences 01 any speaker wi the rac. but oft times his polit'ea' ene mies come In :reat number in order to enlov his inptchless oratory. It is ad mitted bv his opponents that this ab:l itv to convince an audience bv he magic of his words has been .Tohnson'3 bst asset and that it has won him thou sands of votes in the contest. Poindexter Good Speaker. Win. Poindexter is nnother excellent speaker, probably outranking any of the other candidates In this regard w.th tho oTOPntlon of Mr. Johnson. An ,.h!e f 1.. ....v.. ..cmj-1 s-i nfliacelnr. 4llT..tf 1 r fl presenting his cause in a logical and ! convincing manner he has appl-ed this to rOOd effect in his campaign ior gov ernor and has proved a good campaign er. There is no attempt on his part to work on the sentiment of h aiml ence in the manner Mr. Johnson does. (Continued on Page Twelve.) wBBmwwMwiA:.SM I wBKE3BE8s"i Sbi FH lHllkrii!
