THE OLD AND THE NEW.
In parting with Col. Jeff N. Miller
who will sever his connection with
the St. Louis Brownsville & Mexico
Railroad the first of the year it is
hut natural that the people of
Brownsville and of the Valley of the
Lower Rio Grande should feel more
or less regret. Col. Miller came
among us with the building of the
railroad and he is loked upon as an
old friend. As vice-president and
general manager of the road he
has been untiring in his efforts to de-
velop and build up the country tra-
versed by his line and the country
owes much to those efforts. He will
ever be held in grateful remembrance
by our people and he will take with
him their best wishes no matter
where he may go. But the regret
our people may feel at parting with
him will in no manner serve to prej-
udice them against his successor.
They will regard his going and his
successor's coming as among those
things that are inevitable in the
whirligig of time and to Charles D.
Rodgers who is to take his place
they will extend the righthand of
good fellowship. Whether or not Mr.
Rodgers will pursue the same liberal
policy toward the development of the
Lower Rio Grande Valley that has
ever been pursued by Col. Miller re-
mains to be seen; but it stands to rea-
son that as general manager of the
road he will wish to see its traffic in-
creased and this can be done only
by developing the country. And this
being the case we are prepared to be-
lieve the new general manager will
come among us willing to do his part
and ready to encourage the develop-
ment of a section where development
will mean so much and where it is
virtually in Its infancy. There is
inore or less speculation as to what
changes will be made in the official
force of the road when Mr. Rodgers
becomes its general manager. That
some changes will be made there is
but little doubt for it is only natur-
. al that the .general manager of a rail-
road should in naming those upon
whose faithfuless he must depend to
execute his orders give preference
in some degree at least to friends
over strangers and those now serving
the road with a very few exceptions.
are. in a personal way strangers
to Mr. Rodgers. One of these excep-
tions is Mr. William Doherty traffic
manager of the road and it is per-
haps this together with his very ex-
cellent fitness for the place that has
given rise to the belief that his serv-
ices will be retained. As traffic man-
ager of the road the duty of making
known to the outside werld the great-
ness of the Valley of the Lower Rio
Grande and bringing in hoineseekers
to settle and develop the country has
devolved upon him and how well he
has performed that duty the hun-
dreds of pretty farms and more ma-
jestic plantations throughout the Val-
ley tell in words more eloquent than
we could possible write.. The older
residents those who' were here before
the coming of the railroad love him
for the great work he has done in set-
tling up the country; the new ones
love him for inducing them to come
to so glorious a country and to
which they were attracted by descrip-
tions he placed before them In a way
so pleasing they could not resist.
Those who have come among us as a
result of his efforts are a superior
class to those usually brought in to
settle and develop newly opened coun-
tries and for this the Valley of the
Lower Rio Grande has much to be
thankful. No official announcement
has been made of Mr. Doherty's rr-

Sketch of the Great Musician Who
AVill Soon Visit Brownsville.
Selmar Janson was born in East
ern Prussia. He began. to play at the
early age of four years. At five he
received his first instruction on the
piano and at eight made his first
public appearance in Berlin.
Having completed his studies at
the Gymnasium he studied under the
best known musicians in Berlin piano
with Courtpianist Sally Liebling
and Knight of the Royal Roumanian
Crown. Later he pursued the study
of piano with Prof. Philipp Ruefer
Regent of their Royal Academy of
music in Berlin and Mme. E. Kisch-
Schorr the head teacher of the Vir-
gil Klavler Schule in Berlin. Compo-
sition he studied with Prof. Phil Rue
fer orchestra conducting with Herr
Pfitzner one of the greatset musical
directors and counterpoint and fugue
teption and the belief among our
people that he will be retained may
have gained currency from the wish
being father to the thought. How-
over this may be we voice the senti
ment of the entire Valley when we
express the hope that Wiliam Doherty
will remain in his present position
until he completes a work he in
augurated; which is of so much
value and importance to the Valley
of the Lower Rio Grande and which
he understands as no one else can
without years of experience and of
Why "Women Faint.
(From the (Houston Chronicle.)
A cruel statistician figures that of

Editor Possums and English.
(From the Temple Telesram.)
Reports from Belton state Editor
Woodall of the Democrat was bitten
by a possum for which he (the edi
tor) was reaching into its - lair.
Mighty funny business for an editor
to be in it strikes us.
AVe Blush for Zapatn.
(From the Kennebec (Me.) Journal.)
It was in the overwhelmingly Dem
ocratic State of Texas that wo find
the only county in the whole country
which went unanimously for Taft at
the recent election.
It's All the Same.
(From the St- Irals Republic.)
It's perfectly legal for a wife to go
through her husband's pockets ac-
cording to a Washington police jus-
tice and it doesn't make any differ-
ence if it isn't.
Evelyn's Making-Up Qualities-
(From the Houston Post.)
They say that Evelyn Thaw has be-
come reconciled to Harry again. That
makes nine times in nine months and
we believe the record and the cham-
pionship. The man who has no consideration
for the feelings of others is a brute.

with the world renowned teacher
When seventeen years of age he
gave his own concert in Berlin with
great success. Since that time he has
been constantly before the music lov-
ing world. His tours throughout
Germany before coming to America
were wonderfully successful and he
holds a place close to the hearts-of
Since coming to America Herr Jan-
son has appeared in piano recital in
the principal cities of the north and
east. He has been greeted with
great ovations and crowded houses
wherever he has appeared and during
his sojourn In this country has won a
place for himself in the estimation
of the American people. The press
and critics everywhere are loud in
their praises of this young artist.
The citizens of this city may well
feel elated over having an opportun-
ity to hear Herr Janson in recital
and no doubt he will be greeted with
a large and appreciative audience
when he makes his first appearance
Will Deliver a Discourse at the Catho-
lic Church Tomorrow Morning
Tomorrow morning at High Mass
(10 o'clock) at the Catholic church
Rev. Father H. A. Constantlneau O.
M. I.. Saint Mary's Church San An
tonio will deliver a discourse and his
subject will be "Experience of a Re-
cent Visit to Lourdes and Rome."
Rev. Father Constatineau has but re-
cently returned from his European
trip and we may expect his dis-
course to be one of great interest as
well as highly instructive. While in
Rome Father Constantlneau had the
privilege of seeing His Holiness the
Pope in a private audience and he
was also present at the great jubilee
which was celebrated in St. Peter's
Basilica by the Holy Father on Sep-
tember 17. -the 50th anniversary of
his ordination to the priesthood.
Father Constantlneau arrived .In
Brownsville Thursday evening and
since his arival has met many warm
friends who are always glad to
have him visit this city. Among his
Brownsville friends are Protestants
as well as Catholics and many of the
first-named will be counted among
his audience tomorrow morning a
general invitation to attend Ir.-ing ex-
tended to all. In speaking of his
visit to Rome Father Constantlneau
with a smile said he felt a keen pride
in standing under the great Arch of
Constantine and was prouder of his
own name just then than ever be
fore. The good Father is one of the
most lovable tif men and his one aim
In life seems to be the accomplish-
ment o fthose deeds which have al-
ready made his name honored and
revered among men regardless of
their religion faith or creed.
