(Gordon) to sell their produce and buy for themselves corn,
oats, hay, groceries, dry goods—everything, and they declare
the goods at Thurber are fresher, better quality and 25 per
cent cheaper than at (Gordon). And, too, they are so
struck with the company's generosity that on their return home
they open their sacks and parcels, suspecting that perhaps their
money might be returned. However, it is right that Cresar
should have that which is Caesar's. "Facts, Mr. Miner, facts."
Hello, "Trapper!" Look here; I found this card in the same
manner that Joseph Smith found the Rook oí Mormons here it
"In memory of 'Dynamite,' the Herculean double-handed
correspondent ot the 1 exas Miner, who came to an untimely
end by being choked to death in attempting to swallow a ques-
tion on the ' I ranspiration of Gasses' given by another corres-
pondent called 'Trapper.' "
Dvnamite is gone to rest-
Too bad, too bail;
lie failed to stand the test-
Poor lad, noor lad.
Now, Mr. "Trapper," you are in a pretty box, are you not?
I'he public holds you responsible for all this. You were aware
that his digestive organs were in bad condition. Why did you
not go easy, and fire a question on the "diffusion" of gasses?
He did not know anything about ' transpiration" of gasses. Be
more careful in future. ' Facts, Mr. Trapper, facts."
Oh, yes; did you hear of the iron band that was ordered of a
blacksmith to put on a certain man's head to keep it from
swelling? It is said that naturally his head was one of these
6 1-8 heads, but of late he can't find a hat large enough to fit
him—he has to have one made to order. The swelling of the
head is a terrible disease. Once a man's head begins to swell
there are no hopes tor him—it's all over, and he'll surely die by
his own deeds.
Oh I have lots more to tell you about, but the cars are
squealing for grease, so I must go. But say, "Trapper,"
should you ever ask me a question, please ask me a slick one
something on greasing.
By the way, Mr. Miner, what has become of "Gypsy," that

contributed as free as the unmarried men we could have run
much longer. We cannot say too much in praise ot the young
men of Thurber for assisting us in our struggle. A great mam-

will pay up, so that we may be able to continue the school as
long as posible.
We will continue to receive subscriptions. Parents do not

"trapper ' an1) "dynamite," your'e shot at.
Thurber, Tex., March is. 1804.
To the Miner:
In a recent issue of your paper I saw a question asked of
"Dynamite" by "Trapper." As "Dynamite" has failed to an-
swer the question I thought I would try and answer it for him,
as it can be done in. a very few words: It would take less time
tor the nitrogen to transpire, as nitrogen transpires thirty-one
ten-thousandths quicker than carbonic oxide.
Now, I would like to ask "Trapper" a question on gasses, as
I think he is away up on chemistry. Give a list of the gasses
met with in coal mines, and state the peculiarities of each; where
are they generally found, and under what conditions? "Trap-
per," this is a very important question, and a question that all
miners ought to be posted on. So give us an answer as plain
as possible, and a key to it, or something that we may never
