said to a reporter: “I have no
particular choice of harbors. I am
not brave enough to commit myself.
There are enough products and
water to give every port in Texas
business. While I do not antic-
ipate immediate consummation
of our hopes of securing concerted
action, yet I venture the prediction
that it is only a question of time
when we will have unbroken ship
interests to marts of South Amer-
Changing the subject the gov-
ernor said: “There may or may
not be a prize fight in Texas. Gov.
Culberson’s proclamation convening
the legislature to enact another
prize fight law was a great sur-
prise. If a law be passed mak-
ing prize fighting a felony, then
there will be no fight between
Fitzsimmons and Corbett.”

the defeat of the Cambridge—Oxford
cricket team by the Philadelphians,
remarks: “These defeats of Eng-

one thing we could do, we thought
we could play cricket. America is

it was never popular there. Yet

The reputation of El Paso as a
health resort Is already firmly estab-
lished. Thousands of Invalids have
found here the relief which they have
sought vainly elsewhere. Especially
is this true in all cases of pulmonary
disease, and there are today living in
El Paso hundreds of people, in good
health, engaged in business and en-
joying life, who declare that had
they not come to this genial clime
they would either have died long ago
or continued to drag out a miserable
existence. There is not a winter but
numerous Invalids who have sought
other health resorts come on to IC1
Paso by advice of the physicians at
those resorts. They come from Col-
orado and Northern New Mexico be-
cause it is too cool there and they
come from Southern California be-
cause it is too damp there. Here they
find a dry, warm, sunny climate, with
almost every condition required to In-
Some years ago Dr. Alfred S.
Houghton of Chicago wrote that after
a thorough examination and careful
study of the subject, he found El
Paso and San Diego, Cal., the two
places most favorable to all persons
afflicted with pulmonary diseases.
Following is a portion of a table of
statistics of “annual climatic changes”
which Dr. Houghton prepared, and
upon which he based his conclusions:

perature of the winter season, consti-
tutes the charm of the El Paso climate.
The altitude Is 3760 feet above the
sea level—high enough to be pure and
bracing, and yet not high enough to
embarrass the heart’s action and in-
crease the dyspnoea of those affected
with pulmonary complaints. I found
It true with regard to myself while
suffering from a severe attack of bron-
chitis, and also with regard to others
whom I met that whereas at Las Vegas
and Santa Fe (at an altitude respec-
tively of 6700 and 7100 feet) we suf-
fered from dyspnoea and had to walk
slowly, like confirmed Invalids, tbe de-
scent to El Paso enabled us to walk
briskly and soon made us feel equal
to running a foot race.
The soil Is sandy and very porous.
The temperature Is hot In summer
and mild In winter. For those who
have the means of traveling it would
be folly to summer in El Paso, and yet
the dryness of the atmosphere is such
that a temperature of 100 to 105 de-
grees In the shade Is more endurable
than that of 70 and 85 degrees In Phil-
adelphia. Sunstroke Is unknown, In
spite of a maximum temperature of
110 degrees In summer, and those
who are compelled to remain there do
not perish with the heat, nor suffer
much, If any, more than the lnhabl-1 az/q 7'Trp
hints of Eastern cities. I*
But It is the winter temperature to
which I wish to call attention, as well
as the small amount of rainfall and
the small number of cloudy days, these
conditions combining to constitute the
cliarm of tbe winter, during which
season the Invalid can walk, or even
sit out of doors, almost every day.
Combined with the mild temperature
there is, as I have before remarked,
a bracing tonic quality to the air, due,
perhaps, in part, to its rarity and dry
ness, which I have failed to find In
the air of Florida, of the Gulf, or eveu
of San Antonio, Texas.
In view of Its mild winter climate,
its altitude, the great dryness of the
atmosphere and soil, and the remark-
able preponderance of clear and fair
days, especially during the winter and
