that the lack of waterworks ac-

had visited this city in the past.

Several pistol shots the ringing
of the fire bell and the shouts ofJ
people called a large crowd of citi-
zens to the eastern part of town
about 10 o'clock last night. The
occasion was a fire which had
broken out in a vacant house near
the comer of 16th and Monroe.
The house was a small frame affair
and the flames soon devoured it.
No one knows how the fire started
but it is supposed to have been the
work of an incendiary as a bottle
of kerosene oil is said to have been
found in the building. Those who
reached the scene first say there
was no one about the place except
those who had been attracted by
the fire. The fire brigade worked
manfully and prevented any spread
f the flames.

A MATTER OF HEALTH
HAS HQ SUBSTITUTE
WHEAT IN MEXICO.
The Morton Hacienda Produced a Pheno
minal Crop of the Snowy Cereal.
Mr. Carlos Morton of Sabinas
Hidalgo 2?. L.. Mexico is in La-
redo from his hacienda near the
place named and in view of the
present shortage or at least scar-
city ot wheat in Mexico his ac-
count of an experiment in wheat
on the Morton hacienda is very in-
teresting. As an experiment the
Morton boys decided to plant a
piece of ground in wheat last win
ter entirely ignorant of what re
sults should be expected. Corn is
the only thing grown on a large
scale in the neighborhood of Sabir
nas and consequently nothing is
known whatever about wheat.
They sowed twenty five acres in
the latter cereal using as seed
wheat grown in other parts of
Nuevo Leon. Recently they har
vested their crop having purchas- j
ed expensive modern reapers
threshers and balers with which to
do the work. Their crop of wheat
stood four five and nearly six feet
from the ground and the size of
the grains when threshed was larger j
than anything of the kind grown j
in the republic before. The usual
Mexican wheat is very dark and
not nearly as well developed as the
wheat we know in the states and
when their wheat was marketed in
Monterey it created considerable
surprise and brought a high price.
This did not interfere with their
regular corn crop they having just
begun to harvest their first crop
which - will net them a profit of
more than $12000. The second
crop usually equals the first one.
The problem of growing a fine
first grade wheat in Mexico is
growing more serious of late years
than formerly. The people are
growing more and more fastidious
every year in their taste for good
agricultural products. If a large
section therefore can be found in
the northern part of the republic
particularly adapted to the growing
of a high grade of wheat it will
mean a new and vast source of
wealth to that section. Just across
the Rio Grande from us the people
are in quest of new enterprises to
replace the advantages they once
enjoyed on account of the Free
Zone. If they find that they live in
a wheat country the prosperity of
our neighbor community will be
assured. Laredo Times.
A Gales avenue car crossing the
bridge during the rash period
crowded as usual carried among
others an elderly man seated and a
haughty beauty of uncertain age
standing. After the car had slowly
and laboriously traversed the first
stage of its Brooklynward journey
the elderly man arose and said:
"Well I'.ve had a seat over the
bridge and how I'll give it to you
the rest of the trip."
"I should think it was about
time" was the response which
startled those within hearing.
The old man was equal to the
occasion. He had not stepped aside
and he sat dowp quickly saying in
a perfectly audible tone:
"I'm damned if I do."
The woman left the car at the
next stop while the remainder of
the passengers went their way re
joicing. New York Sun.
