Falls in Ditch.
Last Monday night while return-
Ins to his hotel T. A. Holland a
representative of the Southern Art
School of New Orleans had the
misfortune to fall into a sewer
ditch resulting in severe bruises
laying him up for seversl days for
repairs. Mr. Holland says that the
accident occurred on Fourth street
near Fillmore and that the sidewalk

protected with the usual danger
sign. In approaching the inter-
secting ditch. Mr. Holland says
that he noticed a lantern on a pile
of dirt five or six feet from the
sidewalk but that from all ap-
pearances the ditch was covered at
the point where the walk crossed
it and as it was very dark he was
unable to detect any danger in the
crossing. In falling he suceeded
in securing a hold with his feet
upon the side of the trench and did
not fall to the bottom. The ditch
at this particular point he rsports
was nine feet deep.
Water Delivered Daily
I have recently put on a daily water service and will
appreciate the patronage of the people of Amarillo;
The water used on my wagon will be from the Hess
well in the southwest part of the city which is con-
sidered the best in Amarillo.

Col. IJoyce advised he has dur-
ing the past twenty years "gone
to the river and couldn't get
across" and that a bridge over
the Canadian river is worth more
to rotter county than a new rail-
road. Mr. Stringfellow suggested that
so many things can be had in Am-
arillo that are not furnished in the
smaller towns north and that much
wholesale and retail business will
be directed to Amarillo if a bridge
be built across the Canadian.
THE TIME ISNEARlS:
ONLY ONE WEEK 'TILL OCTOBER 6th
Prof. Zendel the High Grade Photographer whose Specialty is Ar-
tistic Posing and First Class Work will leave for Denver October 6th.
Leave Orders now Work Finished Within 48 Hours.
This much discussed proposition
at last assumes definite shape and
there is every hope that before the
May freshets of 1906 travelers
will have cesed to wade swim or
go around the treacherous Cana-
dian when they go to or from Am-
arillo and the North Counties.
A bridge across the Canadian
river has been one of the greatest
needs for years. It is at present
of more interest than any other en-
terprise for Amarillo and Potter
county as well as for the residents
of the counties north of us. There
are hundreds of people north of the
river who would market theirgrain
produce and stock in Amarillo if
there was a bridge that would in-
sure their being able to cross the
river at all times.
The need of this bridge has be-
come so serious that recently more
active steps have been taken to-
ward securing it. Mr. Garnett Lee
at his own expense has brought
Felix J. Kersting an engineer with
the Kansas City Bridge Co.. to
make a careful investigation as to
the practicability and possibility of
placing a bridge across the Cana-
dian a bridge that will stay.
Mr. Lee the wellknown ranch-
mar on the north side of the river
realizes the great importance and
Lenefit of thisundertaking and who
nas spent liberally bith time and
money toward it.
These two gentlemen returned
to Amirillo yesterday and reported
very favorably to a committee of
citizens and business men that an
ideal site for a bridge is due north
of Amarillo eighteenmilesand about
one fourth mile west of Mr. Lee's
ranch. The river at this point has
a high 35 foot bluff on the north
bank and the south bank is two
feet above high water mark and
at a depth of 32 feet below high
water a rock foundation was found
The current at this point strikes
the rock bluff just above the pro-
posed bridge site and before re-
covering its force has passed the
bridge. The rock foundation on
which to anchor and the force of
the current broken before it strikes
the bridge are two very important
features in securing a permanent
bridge and Mr. Kersting advises
that any reliable bridge company
would insure a bridge to stay five
years or more. The bridge at that
point would only need to be 516
feet 86 foot steel truss spans
resting on tubular piers which are
sunk two or three feet into an-
chored in the rock foundation
then filled with concrete which
would hold a bridge for years.
Such a bridge 18 feet wide to
allow vehicles to pass would cost
approximately $17500. This mat-
ter being of such importance a
nnmber of business men and large
property holders assembled to hear
Mr. Kersting's report and were so
favorably impressed with the propo-
sition that the proper steps were
taken to place the matter before
the property owners of Potter
Judge J. C Paul was unani-
mously elected chairman. Judge
Merrill advised that $35000 was
the limit allowed for bridges and
roads of which $6000 had been
used leaving $29000 available.
On Mr. Kesting agreeing to fur-
nish plans and specifications with;
probable cost within ten days it
was suggested that this matter be
fully discussed in the mean time
and on the receipt of the plans to
call a mass meeting of property)
