Special Correspondence of the.HKRAXD.
Dallas Tex. Not. 18. Northern
Texas presents to the traveler quite an
animated eoene at this time of the year.
The warm balmy weather enjoyed for
the past few weeks has been quite con-
ducive to the dispatch of outdoor busi-
ness. Along: the railway lines are vast
areas of cotton on every hand and
groups of negroes are busy pluoking
the fleecy staple although the crop Is
well nigh harvested. Along the high-
way we see numerous teams drawing
bales of cotton or cotton seed and at
every station are great bales plied high
on platforms and on care suggesting
the prominence of the greatest staple
of Texas and emphasizing the remark
"Cotton is King." With good prices
for cotton and a fairly good crop
Texas farmers are happy and are shar-
ing the large measure of prosperity
now prevalent in the country.
Dallas is the centre of much busi-
ness and commercial activity. The
volume of trade appears 10 be large
and the prospects for the coming win-
ter are very bright. Prosperity in-
deed smiles on Texas at least in this
vicinity. As the great commercial
city of north Texas Dallas may na-
turally expect a very considerable in -crease
of its prestige and prosperity
in the near future from the opening up
of the rich lands of the Indian terri-
tory which will be made within the
coming year by the Dawes commis-
sion. This will prove a real boon to
Texas in general as the lands will
doubtless be sold to white settlers and
The subject uppermost in the minds
of business men of this vicinity at pres-
ent is the ereotion of cotton mills in
Texas. To be mere producers of the
raw material "drawers of water and
hewers of wood" and compelled to pay
a heavy tribute to other states for the
finished article and the enhanced cost
incident to a double transportation of
the commodities is indeed very gall-
ing to the pride of patriotio Texans.
To the writer who has witnessed the
upbuilding of vast cotton mills in the
southern states ea6t of the Mississippi
which sprang up like Jack's beanstalk
in a night and soon enriched the pro-
jectors enhanced the va'ue of adjacent
cotton belts and gave employment to
worthy citizens converting them from
mere farm laborers to skilled oper-
atives it seems almost an abnormal
lethargy which prevents the develop-
ment of manufacturing industries in
this great state. The development of
manufacturing industries in Texas
and the consequent independence of
her people would convert this vast
and highly favored region into an em-
pire in fact as well as in name. The
golden opportunity is before the peo-
ple will they embrace it? Each year
that the people of Texas pay a heavy
tribute to other states for -manufactured
goods drains heavily on the ma-
terial resources the very life and
blood of the state. Money talks elo-
quently in Texas.
Visitors at Dallas naturally wish to
see its twin city Fort Worth. Accept-
ing courtesies extended by E. P. Tur-
ner the able efficient and popular
general passenger agent of the Texas
and Pacific railroad your correspond-
ent made a delightful afternoon trip
from Dallas to Fort Worth via the
famous "El Paso route." Taking a
local train on this route we passed over
the great trestle across the romantic
Trinity river and then entered as
fine and fertile a district as one could
find in the southwest. The roadway
was straight finely graded and ballast
ed; the heavy steel rails were well laid
on broad ties disclosing a clever
alignment. And as the train sped on
MME. NEVADA A PATRIOT
American Prima Donna Recalls Her
Experience In Spain
Mme. Emma Nevada the sweet
American singer who of late years
has made her home in Paris is stoo-
ping at the Continental hotel says the
New Orleans Picayune where she will
remain until after the concert at the
academy of music. There will be a
fine display of musical patriotism on
that night. Promptly at 8 o'clock
Admiral Schley will be escorted to his
box in the academy and just at that
moment Mme. Nevada will start "The
Star Spangled Banner" and the big
chorus will join in 50 voices at a time
until all join the grand climax of
song. Mme. Nevada is much pleased
with the arrangement for she con-
siders herself a type of the patriotic
American woman even though her
real home is in Paris.
1 She has had maey interesting exper-
iences since she was last In the coun-
try about all of which she talked with
freedom aad vivacity. She had the
sympathy of a nation when she was
hissed in the opera house at Seville at
the opening of the Spanish-American
"Before I left Paris" she said "I
asked several Spanish gentlemen if
there was likely to be any feeling
aeainst me on account of the war and
they all said there could not be as I
was regarded not as an American but
as an artist. So whoa we arrived at
Seville and heard that the whole house
was sold I was pleased. No one was
preieDt when the ourtain went up.
They had organized the whole thing.
Between the first and second acts they
came trooping in and whei I began to
sing they hissed and made all sorts of
threats. The women were far worse
than the men. I just made up my mind
I would sing the opera through and I
don't believe I ever sang better. There
was not one sign of applause and I be-
lieve if I bad made a mistake or given
them an opportunity . at all they
ward at rapid speed across prairie
valley and then amid lovely bills and
dells the experience of travel was in-
deed most delightful. The day was
perfect and the oool air laden with
sweet perfume of field and forest was
truly refreshing. Along the way were
fine and well improved farms and
tasteful cottages and at intervals of
half a dozen miles pretty hamleta or
flourishing towns lined up along the
great steel road way.
Fort Worth resting on a row of
hills surrounded by a fine grass-
covered country was indeed a j pretty
sight as the bright rays of sunshine
glowed upon Its massive structures. It
is indeed a handsome well equipped
city of modern improvements has
good streets and an array of public
and private buildings Including' a mag-
nificent court house that are a credit
to the lone star state. Perhaps the
most conspicuous building at least to
the traveler is the large and elegant
passenger station of the Texas and
Pacific railroad with its most beauti-
ful tower. This building is not yet
completed but its exterior and inte-
rior appearance with its appointments
of the highest rank its unsurpassed
facilities for convenience and oomfort.
Indicate one of the most elegant and
perfect stations in the country. This
station reflects great credit upon the
enterprise and public spirit of the
Texas and Paolfio railway.
Arriving at Fort Worth the long
vestibuled train of the Texa9 and Pa-
cific just arrived from El Paao recalled
pleasant memories of the olty of sun-
shine and matchless climate where-
of the writer speaks from long experi-
ence. Sweltering in the heat and
humidity of this region the scribe longs
for the cool yet balmy ozone-ladeo
air of El Paso's aerial perch which is
so seductive and health giving.
The next morning a delightful yet
too short journey was taken on the
cleverly named "Cannon Ball" train
on the Texas Pacific. This is a truly
superb train of unsurpassed equipment
and its extension to the Pacific coast
will prove of much value to El Paso.
Drawn by a heavy engine this complete-
ly vestibuled aggregation of Pullman
palace oars chair care day coaches
mail baggage and express cars sweeps
like the shadows over the finely
r roomed roadway. It leaves Fort
Worth at 7:30 arrives at Dallas a
distance of 32 miles.at 8:30and brings
the - traveler into Texarkana at 3:30 a.
m. of a distance 253 miles. It then p-o-ceeds
on its speedy course toward St.
Louis and Memphis. "Its the Cannon
Ball indade" exclaimed a native of
Erin as he alighted from this train at
a small town "An bedad Oi fale as
though Oi were shot from a canyon."
And then he pulled away on bis pipe
and gazed at the fiery untamed steed
enveloped in smoke as the Pullmans
snapped around a curve orossed a
romantic stream and were lost In
LA MESA. N- M.
Richness Of the Potrlllo Mining
District Condition Of Cattle
Good Stabblna At San Mi-
guel. Special Correspondence of the Herald.
La Mesa Victoria Nov. 21. The
eyes of the prospector are on the Po-
trlllo mountains. The greatest pros-
pects ever discovered have been found
there. The ore pays from the top.
There are gold lead copper add sil-
ver. To give readers of the Herald
the best southwestern paper in print
an idea of the wealth concealed within
the heart of the Potrillos. we will
quote Messrs. Taylor and Bird two
well known prospectors who have been
doing ninety dsys' work on ten differ-
ent locations belonging to them there.
"We have been working three
months on our ten olaims in the Po-
trillos" said Mr. Taylor. "We have
ore that pays us from $75 to $100 per
ton and we are now on our way to the
J a rill as to do assessment work on
various claims there. We are entirely
satisfied with our Potrlllo claims and
would have mobbed me."
This was a distressing story coming
from the lips of such a fragile little
woman as Nevada appeared to be but
she had some pleasant experiences to
recount. One of these was her hour
with Quean Victoria at Windsor last
July when she sang for the queen and
received a golden crown set in rubies
pearls and turquoise which she wore
on her bosom last night. "The queen
is a dsar old lady" ecstatically ex-
claimed the prima donna "and what
do you think she actually works every
night from 11 o'olock until one o'clock
in' the morning. I left her at 11
o'clock and she told me about the way
she worked." Apparently Mme. Ne-
vada bears no grudge against the
Spaniards for the bitsiftg she received
at Seville for she carried a dainty em
broidered handkerchief which she
said was a Spanish gift.
She will only stay in America for
about three months during whieh
time she will sing in 30 conoerts. She
sang in the Metropolitan Opera house
in New York last Sunday night aod
for one song she chose "The Mocking
Bird." She was surprised and de-
lighted to receive yesterday a note
from Septimus Winner the author of
the song who lives in Philadelphia
thanking her for singing it. "Really"
she said "I thought it was one of
those old songs that just grew. I didn't
know it bad an author and I think it
was very nice of him to write me."
In answer to her expressed desire to
learn some new American songs Mme.
Nevada has had manuscripts innumer-
able submitted to her. Most of them
she has not had time to glance over
but one entitled "Come Back Dear
Heart" has been aocepted and she
expects to singn it tomorrow night.

will return soon to assume work on
Mr. Bird who seems to be an expert
miner and a mineralogist s.iys: "I
can show you several air holes in
those mountains; this means that the
rock is soft within the very heart and
will allow great deposits of ore.
Wherever you find air holes you will
find big bodies of ore. Hard track
does not allow big bodies of metal."
Both gentlemen are very enthusias-
tic and speak highly of the future of
these mountains. The only trouble
now is as it was with the Jarillas that
there Is no water.
Lewis Goodman the merchant of
this city has his eyes wide open. He
and Mr. Faustino Olguin have located
four claims the Dewey Don Faustino
Santa Teresa and the Goodman. . They
are now working on them and will do
six months' work on their claims. It is
the Intention of Goodman and Olguin
to do $500 worth of work on at least
one of their olaims to get a patent on
the same. Mr. Olguin is an old min-
ing man and has great hopes tbat the
Potrlllo mountains will soon be an-
other of New Mexico's best mining
AN EL PASO CATTLEMAN. '
Mr. Sweet once a resident of Me-
sllla Park N. M. and now of El Paso
Texas passed through here on his way
to his cattle ranch near the Potrillos
and Bald that a party from Texas
would bring 250 more head of cattle
and take charge of his ranch. This
will make a total number of 600 head
now grazing and watering at his well
and he has water to supply 1500 more
head. He reports cattle in fine shape.

Indian Summer at an End Snow In
the Mountains The Season Un-
favorable to Cattlemen Gen-
Special Correspondence of the Herald.
Engle N. M. Nov. 21. Cold
stormy weather this last week prevail-
ing all through Sierra county closes a
most enjoyable Indian summer and
hastens preparations for a long and
dismal winter. The rain however
has supplied a long felt want and par-
tially replenished many a water hole
in the extensive ranges. The moun
tains an rouna are capped witn snow
indicating in the high ranges of the
San Mateo Magdalena and San An-
dreas mountains and in the Black
Range tbat the fall must be very heavy.
The past summer and fall have not
been as favorable to cattlemen as
might have been expected and conse-
quently a large number of steers will
be carried over to the next season.
Buyers have not been eager or plenti-
ful and the eastern markets early in
the season were disappointing which
resulted in far lower prices being of-
fered than anticipated in the face of
the heavy corn crops in the eastern
and oentral states and cattlemen pre-
fer to hold over until next year rather
than turn off their steers at the low
range of prices that prevails.
