New Coal Arrangements For The
The company has developed
the coal mines of its line near Eagle
Pass and la supplying the western di
vision with coal from them. This di
vision has until reoently been supplied
with coal from mines on the White
Oiks route but the contract with that
company to furnish coal for the T. & P.
has expired and will not be renewed.
As a result thecoal traffic on the White
Oaks routs has decreased. The coal
from near Eagle Pass is said to be in-
ferior in quality to the White Oaks
coal and a much larger amount is re-
quired but is accepted by the S. P.
because the mines are located on its
line. Arrangements have been made
whereby the White Oaks road will dis-
pose of its coal output to other com-
panies. KIrby Again.

Local OH Prospect.
"I see you havebeen talking In your pap-
er recently about oil being discovered
lnsome place away off from bere"sald a
T & P shop employe "but I haven't
en much lately about oil near at
ho me. Several months ago there was
a grea. deal said about the probability
of oil being found near El Paso in the
mesas. I wanted to see a Herald
man then and tell him my little story
aoout oil near at home but I didn't get
t j s e him. Away back yonder io 1882
I believe it was I was working on the
S P railroad just across the river above
the bridge. There was a man with
me and we were cleaning off
the sides of the trrade. The man bad
been living in Pennsylvania all his life
up till that year right In the oil coun
try and knew what oil land looked like.
Well sir that man just kept declaring
that he knew oil could be found in
great abundance by boring down right
there wnere we were at work. That's
all; I just wanted you to say something
about it In your paper for that man
convinced me that there was oil there
and if it was there then it is there now
and if somebody would bore down and
set it they would make a fortune and
bring a big boom for El Paso."
Trouble Among Telegraphers.
There Is trouble brewing in the
headquarters of the Order of Railway
Telegraphers at Atlanta Ga. Secretary
fernam or the order charges the pre-
sident Mr. Powell with having mis
managed the strike reoently on the
Southern railway whioh the president
directed from bis office in Atlanta. He
alleges that the president has drawn
from the treasury practically all the
funds of the order and especially that
over 835000 was disbursed by the pre
sident's order contrary to the regula-
tions of the order. The secretary has
called on the subordinate divisions over
the country to vote on holding a spe
cial convention of the order and twenty-one
divisions have voted in favor of
holding it. Copies of the bitter cores-
pondence between the two officials of
tbe order has been sent to all the mem
bers. Charge follows oharge and each
is answered in turn. The secretary re-
fused to make a transfer of money or-
dered by the president and 'appealed to

Bird Studies With a Camera. By Frank
M. Chapman. Published by D. Apple ton
Si Company Mew York. Price 11.60.
One of the newest of outdoor sports.
newer than bicycling and golf is bird
photography. Frank Chapman au
thor of this book testifies as an old
sportsman and one handy with his
gun that to hunt the birds with a
eamera is truer sport ani eminently
more satisfactory lo Its rewards. Mr.
Chapman Is assistant oura
tor of vertebrate zoology
in the American Museum of Natural
history and author of several books on
birds but that does not keep his book
from having a jolly good fellow spirit
that makes Dim rrlends with the chick
adees in Central park New York and
an acceptable companion for r eiders
who are nook lovers bird lovers and
lovers of out of doors from El Paso to
tbe north pole.
The first Interest one has in the book
is la toe photographs or birds a
chickadee on the author's hand a pert
half fledged Baltimore oriole and of
beautiful cliff with the waves and
spray dashing high against them and
the gray rocks whitened with the
snowy breasts of gannets. The pic
tures are interesting for tbe life and
art in them to anyone however iudif-
ferent to ornithology or photography
To bird lovers or camera fiends the
book is Invaluable.
The first part Is given over to
technicalities concerning lenses plates
proper focusing tripods lighting and
so on points valuable to the photogra
pher and contrived to give him tbe
mmense advantage of Mr Chapman's
experiments in bird hunting. After
the technicalities are over there are
delightful accounts of a cat bird
scolding an owl" with a portrait of the
angered bird of ordinary house spar-
rows and some of their eccentricities
and photographs of them from their
saucy attitudes while pecking
on the street pavement to
their flurried retreats to the eaves.
Another chapter on the chickadees in
the park with a photograph of five
tiny fluffy impudent beaked ohlckadee
babies sitting in a row is a delight
and his acquaintance with tbe Least
Bittern is odd. "Where swallows roost"
gives a chance to know something of
tbe everyday life of these winged twit-
tering bunches of feathers and the
tern pictures of their nests by the sea
of the awkward fledglings of the wide
winged mother bird alighting on her
nest are wonderful.
One can go through the whole book
this way. It has the charm of
tales of sport and adventure the facts
of science and beauty. It carries to
the dwellers of cities who cannot spend
long days and nights in tbe out of
doors something of the beautiful mys-
tery of the birds. Tbe shyest of tbe
winged creatures who seek inacesslble
cliffs and deep forests are shown in
their homes and unafraid doing their
duty in the universe's unfathomable
mysterious law of life. Before leaving
the book however two more points
must be brought forward one to reour
to praise of the beautiful vis-
tas of seas and cliffs that
are bird haunts and to say that the
book ought to be suggestive for in-
teresting work right here in El Paso
where so many birds come and nest and
brine up their young. No lover of
outdoors who has the time to work
with the camera should miss the book.
and it would be a good one for mothers
of boy and girl kodakers to put In the
hands of the children to suggest an in
telligent and satisfactory outlet for

' What puzzled me in the beginning was that I kept losing flesh without any
cause for it that 1 could see. I had a little trouble with my stomach too and
after a while began to grow weaker and to cough. The cough I thought would
soon po away and cure itself but
it didn't. It grew worse and
then I began to spit t:p a pecu-
liar looking substance. I never
thought of consumption but one
day I had a hemorrhage and then
was frightened in earnest and
did just what you oukl clo. I
rushed to the doctor lie was
either too busy or something
else for he didn't do me any frond.

AND A CHILD.
A soft . summer wind whispered
through the leaves of two sister maples
that stood in the lawn at the end of a
lune bordered by rows of stately locust
The white blossoms hiilix heavy over
all the trees and the fragrant perfume
fell like incense j:vceteiiinj; all the air.
With every ripple of breeze the blossoms
fell like snowHahcs through the deep pur-
ple shadows in the nrestde through which
the lane ran.
Back from the maples a white farm
house stood and all about lay the hush
of miilmorn in the time when spring is
turning into summer.
Suspended between the murmuring
maples a hammock swayed softly and iu
the hammock n young man and a child
lay sleeping. The arms of the child were
clasped around the neck of the young
man. and his wet cheek pressed the
cheek of the older sleeper. Straying locks
of his curly brown hair fell damply
across his chubby face. Below the ham-
mock a tousled dog lay flattened against
the ground sleeping too after the morn-
The child was "Bobs who had been
christened Marshall Edward Alloway
the son and heir of John Alloway whose
broad acres reached down to the big
road where the lane and "'Bobs " world
ended. His slumber- mate was "Bobs'
Man" more properly Henry Avers Lyle
junior partner of the firm of Harvey
Landes & Lyle attorneys at law who
was spending nis vacation on the Allo
Stray blots of sunlight filtered through
the leaves and danced upon the green
lawn as the breeze swayed the branches
ot the maples. Out by the barn the pi
geons cooed softly and at times the
"Whoa haw!" of the hired man plowing
in the sod field behind the orchard broke
the silence. Once a wagon went by on
the big road raising a shower of dust
that floated upon the air until the wag
on had disappeared rumbling across tne
bridge where the road turned toward the
Presently a snatch of song brokenly
accompanied by the clatter of tin came
from the house. A flash of light from
bright buckets brightened the hall and
a tall girl came out on tne porch.
As she beheld the sleeping pair the
notes of the song dropped and she came
rapidly forward across the grass hum
ming still the air of the hymn and bend
ing over the hammock printed a kiss
upon the child's forehead. Then she
deftly rigged a handkerchief to protect
the faces of the sleepers from the suu-
light and smiling stepped softly to the
tune she was humming and went down
the slope to the whitewashed spring-
house by the great sycamore tree.
As the summer aged Bobs and his
"Man" grew closer. At times they slept
entwined in each other's arms on the
phady side of a haycock or on the great
mound of fragrant hay in the mow
where the pigeons cooed them to sleep.
At night when "Bobs" had said his
"Now I lay me down to sleep" the man
and the girl sometimes sat together on
the porch. Sometimes they talked in
low tones while the breezes sang lulla-
bys in the maples and the stars hung
like golden russet apples in the blue
black summer sky. Sometimes they sat
Silent as the fireflies danced in curtains
of soft light over the clover and the chirr
of the cricket and the song of the frog
came up to them.
During those evenings they came to
know each other closer and she told
him of her life how while she was away
at college her sister the mother of

home to care for JohriTAIldway's mother-
One night as they sat silent there came
a patter of bare feet upon the oilcloth
in the hall and "Bobs" arrayed in in-
nocence and red flannel burst out upon
The woman snuggled the child close in
her arms and for a long time he lay
looking from one face to the other and
when he went reluctantly to his trundle
bed he kissed "Man" good night.
When the woman tucked him into his
couch she kissed the spot "Man's" lips
had touched but she came no more to
the porch where "Man" smoked restless-
ly and waited a he watched the white
mists rise over the valley as the moon
After many days when the grass had
burned brown all along the big road and
the cattle panted knee deep in the branch
there came one morning an unusual stir
in the farmhouse.
"Man" was going back to his wills
and titles back to the big world.
Dinner was served early but all dur-
ing the morning the woman went about
her work with no song. "Bobs" hung
on to her skirts almost unnoticed and
when she did kiss him she did so absent-
ly and without thinking.
At noon the big farm wagon was at
the door the trunk's were thrown in and
the goodhy was said. "Man" kissed
"Bobs." promised "to come again soon"
and the wagon whirled away down the
lane in a cloud of dust.
The woman stood motionless with her
elbows on the top of the rail fence.
When the wagon reached the hill where
the big road turned and was lost "Man"
stood up and waved his last goodby.
The woman's head sank upon her
arms and she remained motionless until
"Bobs" tugged at her dress and whim-
"Me cry too. 'Man dawn away."
Then she took the child in her arms
snd went down into the springhouse.
An interesting ring story is told of the
Duke of Wellington. He was seated at
dinner one day opposite Miss Dawson
Damer and was observed to be looking
Intently at a ring which that young lady
ore upon her linger. Suddenly he said
'Where did you get that ring?" and
learning that it was a gift from the late
Mrs.. Fitzherbert he asked "Have you
ever opened it?"
"Opened it?" replied the lady. "I did
not know it was made to open."
Thereupon the "Iron Duke" took it
touched a spring and disclosed a tiny
miniature of the regent. "There were
two of these rings" he said. "The fellow
ting inclosed the portrait of Mrs. Fitz-
herbert and was worn by the king. He
gave it to me on his deathbed and in-
structed me to place it on his breast at
his burial. I did so."
