Mills Building In No Danger.
The threat of om grtgt military gcnluaca la
Cludad Juarc tn dlarharg aome of their pop-guna
at at th Mill building located In thla city. In the
event the American embargo la lifted and the Con-
atltutlonallata In Mexico are permitted to purchaee
munition f war on thla aide of the border la evi-
dently taken aerloiiay by nm of the Texaa newa-
papera. The Han Antonln Light saya:
"Whoever draw the aword nhnll perlah by the
word. It la an oM proverb whUh taken literally
mrnm that ahatnir peraon or nation attcmpta to
fctln an object hy the direct uae f the aword a a
primary effect vhall In turn be aorved ma otherf
ii.id lieen served.
"Oeu. Anaon Mllla. a retired general of the Unit-
ed State army la the lateat exemplification of the
(ruth of the ancient saying. It la true that" he haa
r. t been deatrnyed aa yet but threata are being
mude ugalnat him. and It may be that he will en-
counter the full force f the proverb before all the
return are In.
"General Mllla la a man of wealth. Much of
Ma money wan made though the Invention of tho
woven material uaed In the. United Statea army for
cartridge belt and other thlnga of that character.
It wo a moat excellent Invention and the general
waa fully entitled to all the proflta that he made.
"In tho course of time the general having accu-
mulated n aurplua fund decided to Inveat It In the
MMton of a tall building In the energetic and
thrl Ing city of El Paao. It may afford aome won-
der aa to why the general decided to erect a build-
ing In El Taan when he might have btlllt It In San
Antonln. but. anyhow that I what he did Kl Paao
waa the gulner as she deserved to be and It Is
greatly to be hoped that the general will also he-
come more proaperoua because of his Inveetmeot in
that live and thriving metropolis of West Texas.
"It bo happena that I he general' building when
El Paso la gased upon from afar looma up like unto
a lighthouse In a fog. It la one of the moat enn-
asai'unua structure In the city Nothing therefore
la more likely than that an enemy seeking to Injure
El Paao should take a few shots at the general's
building. In fact thla la Juat what the Mexican fed-
erals In Jusres have declared they intend tn do If
the United Statea removes the embargo on arm anj
allnwa Hie fonatltutlonallata (o purchase 'rlflea an1
ammunition In thla country. Ueneral Castro th.
commander of the federal garrison la reported lA
have said that If any such action Is taken he will
open firs on El Paao. and will make a apeclalty of
trying to hit the general' tal) buildings It Is nut
at all likely that the valiant Ueneral Castro will fire
more than one or two shots at the Mills building be
fore somebody from Kl Peso will be over the Inter-
national bridge Intent upon asking him a fsw ques-
tions regarding the matter However Castro mlgl.t
run up something of sn sxpenaa account for QenerU
Mllla before he was stopped.
In the event thst sucn a deplorehle occurrence
Lakes place It will prove the old proverb true one
more. Oeneral Mill made hi money by manufac-
turing military appliances and It would be a case
nf losing some of It through the agency of other
military Inventions Clenerally apeaklng the general
made his money by the sword and If the Mexicans
over succeed In plunking hla skyscraper with a few
cannon balls he will have lost aome of It through
the same medium hy which he gained H."
For the Information of the eataamed San An-
tonio paper It may be atated moat emphatically that
the Mill building In Kl Pasu Is in no danger from
either th pop-guns that are located in Juaraa or
the hot air that haa been directed against It. There
are plenty of pop-gun silencers located out at Fort
tla. should our Cludad Juareb friends at any urn-
tag a notion to indulge In any target practice in
this direction and It would aot require many min-
utes to gat them la anion

Peace Comes to the Balkan!.
The signing of the document that hss brought
pace to ths wsrrmg Balkan nations I an event
that has brought profound aattsfsctlon to ths re-
mainder nf Europe which hss been In constsnt fsar
thst some contingency waa going to srlss thst waa
cslculated to provoke a big and disastrous gsneral
war. And with the signing of th peace treaty the
world has a wakened to the fact that the closing
scenes of the wsr between the former Balkan alllea
over a division of the spoils has pretty thoroughly
demonstrsted tbst the victors are but little If any
better than those they havs vanqumhsd.
The turn that eventa took In the Balkan country
after the treaty of peace with Turkey Jtad been
signed In London has served to rob the victors pi
practically all ths glory of the magnificent cam-
paign they so successfully waged agslnat the Turk.
They went Into that memorable conflict with th
sympathy v' the civilised world and were backed
hy the prayers of all Chrlatendom for It waa be-
lieved they were but righting the wrong that had
accumulated through centuries of oppression. When
the Turk hsd been humbled however and the
greater portion of his European territory taken from
him through the exerclaea of their prowess and
valor and when the plaudits of ths civilised world
were ringing In their ears the victors could not agree
among themelvea as to how the spoils should be ap-
portioned. Flushed with ths victorias won over the
Turks and With the military spirit still running high
among them they could not wait for their differ-
ences to be arbitrated they could not trust to the
greater powers of Europs to settls the differences
that had arisen In a peaceable manner but they
'must needs turn thstr guns upon themselves sacri-
fice thouaanda of additional Uvea and cause the
world to form the conclusion that they wars not
worthy of what they had won.
The net result of the second Balkan war which
followed the first one with Turkey la that the little
kingdom of Roumanla has established its right to
dominate the Balkan situation. Remaining outside
wholly while the other Balkan state were licking
Turkey itoumanla hutted Into the situation when
the former allies were enr.agad In fighting over ths
spoils took what aha . intsd from Bulgaria and
Immedlatsly became the bell wether of the entl.-a
Balkan flock. Servla has gained her long-covsted
outlet which will enable her to build her great
canal Greece has greatly extended her territory and
sustained her honor Montenegro haa gained a little
additional territory and every feather hss been pull-
ed from the Bulgaria peacock's tail. Turkey has ra-
occupled Ai rtanople and much of the territory con-
quered by rulgarla but will he compelled to beat
It bade serosa the frontier line that ahe agreed upon
at the London peace conf-renoa.
la the second war th barbarities practiced hy
the former Balkan alllea among themselves were
Just as great as any of thoss charged up against Ce.
unapeakable Turk In the past. The atrocities were
Juat as many nnd Just ss blpody aa those ascribed to
the Turk which called for the righteous condemna-
tion of the world in the past and such Is the record
that stands now to the credit of the nations who
changed the map of Europe and made glorloua hla-
tory when they were making common cauae against
the great Influence that has ao long kept Its foot
upon the neck of ChrlBtlanity In the past. It is not
a very pleasant picture to contemplate hut It la a
picture the Balkan nations havs pslnted for them-
aelvea tn all the vivid coloring of their own blond.
The peace treaty has been algned. But back of
It all la the picture of humiliated Bulgaria certain
tu seek the regaining .if what ahe haa lost Just a
soon as ahs kt able to muaier the necessary strength.

Water Supply and Education.

manently In making life In the country altraetlirs
unless there (new with It the movement to lighten
the labor of women oa ths fans.

Cook's Indtgnatio. Hs Is convinced that aa much aa
nlns-tenths of ths drudgery of women oa ths farm
I dua to antiquated methoda of handling ths watsr
supply Here i ths way hs states ths csss la a bul-
letin of the I raited States bureau of education -
"The setting of the water from ths enures of sup-
ply to the point of application requires more man-
ual labor than any othar Item of housekeeping. Ths
wster for the kitchen haa to hs lifted from tha well
carried to the kitchen poured Into a ksttls pours
out nf ths kettle Into tha dlshpan and from tha
dlahpan out of doors. This mshss sfi times the
water is handled; and a bucket of water containing
two gallons with the containing vessel will weigh
twsnty pounds. When this Is handiest ata times the
totsl Uftlng Is 110 pounds. The cooking of three
mssls s dsy on s meager allowance of watsr will
necaseltste ten buckets which will make for cooking
alone 1.100 pound of lifting per day. When to thla
la added ths water necessary for bathing scrubbing
and tha wsskly wssh it will easily bring the lift per
day up to a ton; and tha lifting of a ton a day will
take the elasticity out of a woman's stsp the bloom
out of her cheek and the enjoyment from her soul "
To eliminate this Item of drudgery Is eaay. ac-
cording to President Cook. All that Is necessary is
for the farmer to realise that the farm la also the
heir to modern Invention: "An Isolated farm can
be aupplied with a system of wsterwnrks for an out-
lay of about $110: Pump $1$; gasoline engine $40;
tsnk $20; uathtub $10; commode $20; kitchen
Ink $4: haein $4; 100 feet nf pipe $40; valve and
installation $T6. These figures are for flrst-olass

"In a conversation with (Jan. Henry V. Boynton.
sfter he became historian of the Chlckamauga cam-

ment to which I belonged had taken an active part
on the occasion (the conflict st Snodgrass hill) and

that we had the hardest and most unsuccessful Job

o'clock at night coming from the south end of the

been assigned to assist General Palmer in the after-

on the south side of Kelly field still facing south:
but the troops on our right and left were swung so

we had gotten through the woods on the west of
Kelley field we marched uninterruptedly to the head
of McFarland gap.
"On account of the activity and perhaps by the
use of my atuhorlty as ranking officer two bokes
of ammunition were secured just before leaving
Kelley field one going to the 8th Indiana because
General King suggested that I ought to divide his
regiment being the 8th although he was not in
command and on account of being In possession of
this not to exceed ten rounds to the man. It had
been reported thst the troops on Snodgraaa hill were
without ammunition and could not leave the field

were ordered to the relief of Brannan'e division or
that portion of It laft on Snodgrass hill which we
proceeded to do. We took our position In front of

hold that position until Brannan's troopa had cleared
