ful than in making this department of the
Ban Antonio International Fair a. pro-
A new breeder is Included in the rep-
resentation this year. The Tamworth,
Which does not impress the visitor who is
F 'I familiar with his species altogether
favorably on first sight, is in great favor
in Kurope as he furnishes the lean break-
ast bacon for King Edward's subjects.
J he packers of the United States who

tne trade at home and abroad have sug-
gested to fhe swine breeders that they

J2 aj! tastes. Col. L. C Estes of Ennis.
ino first apostle of Hog Heaven Farm, is
explaining the Tamworth and If the vis-
itor is in doubt about his strong points
Colonel Estes will take a special delight
Will Begin Wednesday.
The awarding of prizes will begin Wed-
nesday morning and tho testimonials of
excellence will be distributed among the
Berkshire and Poland China breeders on
lhat day and the other breeders will have
the attention of the judge on Thursday.
George p. Lillard of Seguin, the superin-
tendent of this department of the San
Antonio animal exposition as well as a
successful breeder, is verv much en-
couraged with the development of Texas
md especially South Texas, in the mat-
ter of hog production.
As an evidence of what the farmers of
m.v county, Guadalupe, are doing along
this line, 1 will state that the first car-
load of hogs ever shipped to market from
Beguin were sent to Fort Worth by me
rl year ago last March," he said. "i
raised the most of them but a fow were
contributed by the farmers from whom
I bought them. Since the first day of
January this year I have shipped ten
rarloads of hogs raised by the farmers
In this same section and will ship out
several more before the year closes. The
opening up of the market in Fort Worth
has been a great stimulus to hog breed-
ing but the doctrine of diversification so
persistently preached by the live stock
and agricultural press of the State has
slso been a great factor In inducing the
farmer to abandon his one-crop ideas and
raise hogs, potatoes and onions in addi-
tion to his forage crops, and sell the
surplus to the consumer. South Tex-
as can raise peanuts enough on her soil
that will not grow anything else, to feed
a million hogs a year. Another encour-
agement to the Texas farmer to raise
good hogs is that the packers pay about
Vt2 cents more per pound for that kind
than they do for the inferior grades. T
buy all the surplus hogs over my way
and in this way the farmer who has not
arrived at the dignity of turning them
out in carload lots gets a market for one,
two or ten hogs right at home."
The list of exhibitors and the number
contributed is as follows:
T. H. Pressley, Kingsbury, Texas, Es-
se xs, 38.

Some of the Things Shown There by
San Antonio Manufacturers
The Main Hall is where the visitors
usually go first. The first floor is de-
voted entirely to exhibitors of manufac-
tured articles from the wholesale and
business houses of San Antonio and some
few from other cities. The exhibits are
tastefully displayed in booths In most
cases the traveling representatives or
some one especially interested In the

Tuesday is Chrysanthemum Day among
the flowers, and at that time all cut
flowers will be judged. On San Antonio
Day it is the aim of the ladies in charge
to sell all available cut flowers for the
benefit of the orphans. This has been
the usual custom lor several years, and
all liberal-minded people are expected on
that day to buy their boquet of flowers.
The flower department is acknowledged
to be the prettiest spot on the Fair
Grounds. The display is larger and bet-
ter than ever before, but had more room
been available Mrs. C. W. A. Gosling,
who is in charge of the exhibit, is confi-
dent that a more complete exhibit could
have been had.
Mrs. Gosling was in charge of the flow-
ers at. the first Fair, six years ago. when
the floral department occupied a limited
space in a secluded corner of the audi-
torium. "The exhibit consisted of a few
pitiful growths," says Mrs. Gosling,
when relating the history of the depart-
ment. Each year marked progress was
noted, until now the flowers are installed
in their own hall, with every chance for
a pretty display.
A prominent feature of the exhibit is
the ferns, which are shown in greater
number and variety than usual. Many
new kinds which have hitherto been un-
available are seen in the display.
The Whitmanil, the latesl development
of the Boston fern, is shown by Mrs.

is made by Mr. Hansen, gardener for

shown are unusually large and beautiful.
The Bougambilla, a glory of purple
blooms, is a handsome growth from the
Mrs. Vories P. Brown has on display a
rare collection of plants which call forth
much admiration. Ferns are a specialty
in this exhibit. The Ostrich Plume, as
shown by Mrs. Brown, has prongs fully
three feet long.
Mrs. F. A. Piper's collection fills one-
fourth of the entire building. The dis-
play is most elaborate, and among other
nretty things contains two Ponderosa

Mrs. A. Gloeckner's display is a very
creditable one, as her nursery has been
in progress only one year. A collection
of rare begonias is much admired in
Mrs. Gloeckner's exhibit.

beauty are made, chief among them being
ferns owned by Mesdames John Furnish,

hacendado. He Is one of the foremost
men in the exploiting of Zapupe fibre
plant, which, due to t lie constantly in-
creasing demand for fibers for the 'man-
ufacture of all classes ot cordage is being
experimentally planted through the lower
portion of the table lands of Central
Mr. Espinosa y Cuevas is carrying on
this experiment on an extensive scale
having set out this spring at San Bartola
Station, on his Angostura ranch 500,000
of these plants. They are set in rows
nine feet apart and require three years to
reach such a state of maturity as will
permit the cutting of their lower leaves.
Tho Zapupe plant belongs to the same
family as the Henequen of the Peninsular
of Yucatan and when onco it reaches ma-
turity will bear for a number of years.
Experiments have demonstrated that the
plant will easily adapt itself to light
elay soil. It will produce each year an
average of sixty leaves to the plant,
which yield about three pounds of com-
mercial fiber, which commands an aver-
age price in New York and Hamburg
of eight cents gold a pound.
Hats From Mexico.
Dionisio Montes de Oca of Mexico
<"*ity, who lb the owner of the largest
palm and straw hat factories in the Re-
public, catering to what is known in the
Hot Country as the Charro trade, has
an exhibit at the Fair. This exhibit con-
sistes of some thirty-six hats worn bv
the stockmen and vaqueror. It shows the
style affected by the cattle and ranch
men. The Charro class is almost a dis-
tinct caste in itself and consists of a
percentage of the richest class of citi-
zens in the Republic, principally young
men of the low lands, sons of liacendados
owning vast estates of hundreds of thou-
sands acres of land. These hats are
worn principally on account of their
broad brims and high crowns, which
furnish horsemen protection in warm
climates. The rich decorations which
adorn some of this class of hats are put
on for the same reason that staff of-
ficer of the militia of all countries
adorn their trousers with gay colored
ribbons, their coafcs with gold lace and
hats with plumes.
Display has its effect in all countries
and the "landowner who on his estate will
employ from 300 to 2000 families has learn-
ed by experience that personal display
on his part assists him in the manage-
ment of his estates and stimulates the
hundreds of men in his employ.
Several of the hats in the Mexican ex-
hibit are decorated In silver and some
in silver and gold, one is finished in gold
alone, with stitehings of finest silk; there
is no limit to the amount of money that
may be spent in the decoration of a hat
just as there is practically no limit to
the amount of money that may be ex-
pended on earrings, brooches or dia-
The hat display In the Mexican exhibit
fills three showcases and overflows on
the walls surrounding the exhibit—hats
in straw and palma of all descriptions
are shown—cheap hats, ornamented hats,
hats ranging in prices from five cents
apiece to seven dollars, hats are made
with decorations at all prices. Maxi-
milian paid $700 for his palma hat and
he was not overcharged agS it was made
by convict labor.
Aside from hats, this exhibit shows a
range of fiber manufacture, mining and
ore sacks of all descriptions, ropes and
cordage, and the raw fiber, pita, product
of the maguey plant: henequen: lechu-
guia, known as the ixtle plant, and ba-

Compania Yndustrlal Jabonera, the
?jreat cottonseed soap faetory located at
Jomcz Palacjo, in the State of Durango,

capitalized in excess of one million dol-
lars, and has a special concession from
the Federal Government under the new
Industrial law (Ley de Yndustrias Nu-
evas.) This law grants to all capital
seeking Investment in Mexico exemption
from all Federal taxes now in existence
or that may be enacted during the life
of their franchises and under the terms
of their concessions save the stamp tax.
Tho least amount of capital that can

A CERTAIN SAFE
Even if mercury and potash c^uld cure Contagious Blood Poison the
j condition in which these strong minerals leave the system would make tho
1 cure worse than the disease. But they cannot cure the vile disorder; they
can only cover up the symptoms for awhile to break out with renewed vio-
lence when the treatment is left off. When the virus of Contagious Blood
Poison enters the blood the entire circulation becomes poisoned, and the
* loathsome symptoms begin to appear. The mouth and throat ulcerate, hair
nnd eyebrows come out, glands of the neck and groin swell, copper-colored
spots appear on the body, and in severe cases sores and ulcers break out, and
even the bones become diseased. S. S. S. is the only certain, safe cure for
Contagious Blood Poison ; thousands have been cured by it after failing with
the mineral treatment, Hot Springs, etc. It is the only remedy that is able
to get at the root of the disease and force out the poison so that no signs are
ever seen again. S. S. S. is purely vegetable, being made of roots, herbs
and barks, and never leaves any bad effects, but instead, tones np the stom-
ach and digestion and builds up every part ' the system while removing
the poison from the blood. Book with instructions for self treatment ana
