Litho company San Antonio was
:ound in a dying condition in his
room at the Miller hotel about 7
o'clock this morning. An empty
strvchnine bottle on the dresser in
his room was a mute witness of
the fact that the young man had
taken poison. That this was done
with suicidal intent was proven
by an unsigned note which was on
the dresser. The handwriting in
the note corresponded to the man's
signature on the hotel register
and the note was as follows:
A dispatch from Houston tells
what an expert thinks-of alfalfa
grown in the Brownsville country -
This statement of Prof. Tracy backs
up what The Herald has often
stated that the alfalfa grown in
this section had no superior in the
United States. The dispatch men
tioned is as follows:

three syndicates one of them the

buying up all the guayule land m
Mexico that they can find at
price that heretofore would seem
absolutely prohibitive. Two of
the syndicates could not afford to
buy it at any price but the third
is smaller and could not afford to
pay the exorbitant sum now asked
for it if the men back of it did not
see a great future in this new in
dustry. The facts about the way
in which the guayule is being
bought became known in Monterey
recently and those to whose ears

three-cornered fight that has just
begun and which no doubt will
mean so much to everyone in Mex
ico who is interested in guayule.
These three factions which taken
together would represent an un
limited amount of capital have
had their representatives in Mexico
for the last week or so making
advance contracts for guayule at
a price of $30 a ton. It is also
whispered that they have been try-
ing to get hold of guayule lands
but there is no information to be
had of any actual sales of land for
this purpose. The factories at
Jimulco Gomez Palacio Torreon
and Viesca are all running over-
time these days probably as a
result of the purchases that are
being made by the representatives
of the three combines of capital
and there are rumors that other
factories are to be built. There
are about twenty-five other fac-
tories in operation which are
handling their utmost capacity
but the ones in the citie mentioned
are the biggest and most important.
