B 1 What a Toothache This Mastodon Must Have Had, Big Tooth Found in Sand i A tooth as big as an aching molar I feels was found Saturday by H. T.

The giant tooth is believed to have belonged to some mastadon of the period before Park Pitman was i county clerk. j It measures JH inches by S3-4 inch- i es across the grinding surface and : more than a foot in- length.

One was a part of the hip bone and was several feet in lrPjtll.

Didn't the.Monday morning:.storm make a convincing test of El Paso trans,. portation serviced ' ' . The man who stood on the comer and waited in vairi for a nickel auto to come along and carry him to the office finally walked to the next block and found the ' street cars running on regular schedule. Many folks telephoned us to say that they had lost their faith in the independent sen-ice and had begun to realize what it would mean to El Paso if the street railway service were discontinued or reduced. . On every line in El Paso people found the street cars running on the usual, schedule and had a chance to contrast the service with the "fair weather." competi tion of o.ther transportation mediums. El Paso people are essentially fair. They realize that a transportation line to . be of any permanent good to the city must give service in good weather and bad. weather. 'It must give service on regular schedule. Some of them are wondering why they encourage a transportation service that runs in fair weather and fails w'hen it is needed most; since the business diverted in this 'way directly tetldceVmeBmouf.t of money available for building up permanent and regular transportation, and for improving street railway facilities. . , - A lot of people tell us that the street car sysiem took a rapid rise In public .opinion as a result of the Monday comparison. v ' ., ?
