This is a sub stance iwell knovn to oil men and while It resembles mica, being transparent, yet it will burn, while mica will not. "At the 1200 foot level, we struck a hard shale and there has been some gas which indicates to us that the oil is below. We have contracted for the sinking of the well to a depth of 2000 feet and, while we expect that we will not have to go below 1600 feet to strike oil, yet with our equipment, we can go to a depth of 3000 feet. "In the canyons leading to the claim, there is oil shale and seepage and, af ter breaking through this shale, there is determined an- oil smell. Yet there is nothing proven as yet. "We have nothing,to hide and the re port that we have been gobbling up all land in sight is not true.

Mrs. Westinghouse helped to prepare the girl for the ordeal of immediate operation, and remained at her side assisting the surgeon until tne knife had performed what it is expected will be a successful and permanent cure. I I I im ar ews Brevities Eapid Work of Clearing the Southwestern Property on Mesa. A great change is taking place in the landscape in the vicinity of the Southwestern general office building. i Almost overnight the buildings on the 1 road's property between Wall and Main I streets running east and west and Stan ton and Mesa, north and south, have disappeared. All or the buildings hav been wrecked except that on Mesa for merly occupied by a cleaning and dye ing establishment, and that building will have been razed by "Wednesday noon. The improvement made by the leveling" of the buildings is a revelation and when the plot of ground is parked it will be merely a continuation of beau tiful San Jacinto plaza. The change will make the general office building of the Southwestern seem at least a block nearer the center of things. The curbing will 'be put down around the plot as soon as the block is cleared of debris, but the grass will not be put down until next spring. The only spot at variance with the general parking scheme will be that property of the G. H. railroad, which extends from the southern border of the Southwestern's property to the G. H. tracks. If that road sees fit to park , ii jjiujjeny, me scneme oi Deauty will be complete. It is believed, however, that the G. H. intends to erect an office building on this plot and this belief is borne out by the fact that it did not cooperate with the Southwestern in its scheme of improvement. Plans have been drawn for the' building "Work on remodeling the old general office building of the Southwestern road on Campbell street, to be used as a club building for Southwestern em ployes, win begin soon after September 1, the time set for the vacation of the building by tenants.

Within a year it is predicted that the Kansas City, Mexico & Orient railroad will be running through trains from Wichita, Kas., to Topolobampo, a harbor on the Pacific coast of Mexico. From Wichita the line is in operation as far southwest as San Angelo and trains are running northeastward from Chihuahua, Mex., to a station across the Conchas river. Between these two ter minals the distance is 365 miles and con struction will be pushed with all speed to through service from Wichita, Kas., to Chihuahua, from which point, the road is finished for a considerable dis tance westward. construction is progressing rapidly j iium oan angelo southward towards Del Rio, where connection will be made witlythe National Railways of Mexico, building northward from Al lende to meet the Orient at the Rio Grande, where another international bridge will be built. Important traffic agreements will be made between the Orient and the Yoa-kum-Hawley interests, controlling the Texas Central, the Mlsouri, Kansas & Texas, and the St. Louis, Brownsville and Mexico lines, by which combination another through short line to the Citv of Mexico is available. The Texas Central line, of 281 miles crosses the Orient a short distance south of San Angelo. and through the Katy connects with Brownsville, offer ing a direct thoroughfare to the capital or Mexico, over the newly completed in ternational bridge at Brownsville It is possible that joint deliberations between the Orient and the Mexican North West ern may result in the determination to combine on one line through the Sierra Madre mountains, one of the most dif ficult routes on the American continent The completion of the Orient will open up a vast and fertile territory to i uuiuHiaauon ana result in west Texas building up rapidly. That section has onij Deen waiting on rail transportation to take its place among the great agri- I LUUUia' regions ot the world.
