And It Finally Proved to be AU Abont
At two o'olook yesterday afternoon
people at the S. P. depot beard a row
in a house north of the track on the
corner. Soon a email boy bolted out of
the house and running over to the depot
appealed to Special Officer Rayner to go
over and arrest a woman who was steal-
ing his mother’s things.
Officer Rayner, accompanied by a
Times man were hurrying across to the
house when they saw one woman forc-
ibly put another out of the house. The
ejected wothan ran to meet the offioer
and dung to him. She was too hyster-
ical to explain anything so the offioer
put her aside and entered the house.
The woman in the house said her
name was Mrs. Miller and that her hus-
band worked at San Pedro mines. She
was packing np her household goods to
be placed in a warehouse until she re-
turned from Mexico. She said she
rented the room she was leaving from
Mrs. Minus, the hysterical woman, and
had paid her rent up to the 29ih.
Finally Mrs. Minus oalmed down suf-
ficiently to say that Mrs. Miller had
taken one of her sheets. But Mrs.
Miller convinced the landlady she had
done nothing of the kind and was only
taking such articles as belonged to her-
While the two women were engaged
in a word duel, a pretty little girl,
about twelve years of age, entered the
room. She was the daughter of Mrs.
Minus. The little girl passed swiftly
to the side of her sobbing mother and
facing Mrs. Miller the little lady with
eyes flashing unspeakable wrath and
lips quivering with anger, looked as if
she was about to rush on her mother’s
tormentor. It was really a pretty and
intensely dramatic picture the little
girl maid.
Peace being restored the offioer and
reporter withdrew.
“There are in the county hospital at
present,” said a county official yester-
day, “twenty six patients, and a deli-
cate operation of some kind is perform-
ed out there nearly every day. To-
morrow they are going to take out a
man’s eye, because it is of no service
and causes him great agony. Dr. Vilas
in attending to the oounty’s wards is
doing big work for the small pay he re-
“I wish,” said a young lady yester-
day, “that the Times would suggest
that some kind of an arrangement be
made to enable ladies to see the ball
game between the oounty and city offi-
cials. We want to patronize it for
charity’s sake, and then, too, we believe
its going to be worth the money I want
to see Mayor Magoffin and Judge Kemp
stealing bases and sliding home.”
A few months ago El Paso was talk-
ing about the formation of a new state
and wanted to take the portion of Tex
as west of the Pecos and southern New
Mexico, and several oounties out of
Arizona to constitute the new state. In
Birmingham, Alabama, last Wednes-
day, Senator Morgan speaking of ex
pension said if Cuba was annexed it
ought to be annexed as two states with
four senators. Along this line be be-
lie\ ed Texas should be divided into four
states, and Arizona and New Mexico
made states. With expansion to the
south of the United States the repre-
sentation of the south in oongress would
oome near equalizing that in the north.
Last night a skunk, commonly called
pole-cat, wandered up town and did
some business, to the disgust of every-
one on the streets. At midnight a
Times reporter found a party of club-
men on the Newman bank oorner dis-
cussing the characteristics of the pole-
cat. "Ah, here is some one who can
tell us why the varmint is oalled a pole-
oat," said one gentleman as the repor-
ter approached. The reporter sug-
gested that the thing was oalled a pole-
cat probably because it was best to
touch it with a pole, and a long one, if
it was to be touched at all. One man
said the only way he oould be induced
to touch it would be with buokshot at a
distance of two hundred yards. Then
a lawyer in the party suggested that
the name came from purulentus, stink-
ing. “Rot,” said the doctor "do you
know that there are people who remind
me very much of the pole oat. Rub up
against them in dignified controversy
and they stink until the whole com
munitv has to resort to smelling salts.”
Recent "heart trouble” has occasion-
ed several deaths in this city and on
this subject a New York exchange says
that in their way of living and way of
dying Ingersoll and Roswell P. Flower
were typical of a very large class. Both
led sedentary lives. Both had a great
deal of superfluous flesh. Both had
large appetites and apparently superb
digestions. Both died of “heart troub-
le.” Almost invariably in men of this
sort “heart trouble” means simply
stomach trouble, the result of indiffer-
ence to or unbelief in the simple laws
aB to eating and drinking. The fallacy
that “nature knows what she wants,
and giving a man a huge appetite sig-
nifies that he must eat hugely,” num-
bers its victims by the tens of thous-
ands. Living up to this fallacy pro-
duces what appears to be and in some
oases may be heart trouble. The man with
the big appetite attributed all his suf-
ferings from indulgence in food and
drink, not to his “robust appetite” but
to his “weak heart.” He takes care of
his heart but continues to overload his
stomach. And if any one, even his
physician, tries to warn him against
indulgence of his “hearty, healthy ap
petite,” he laughs or gets angry. It
takes little food to provide all the nour-
ishment the body needs. All above
that little is superfluity, and man must
constantly guard against the tendency
to increase this superfluity. Whei age
approaches the amount of nourishment
necessary tends to decrease, but appe-
tite tends to increase. Hence the un-
timely deaths of men in their physical
and mental prime Always leave the
taple hungry. And when you do not
feel well do not eat at all.

How Jack Thorp Trimmed Bp Thine.
Yea ter day.
Yesterday a typical western cowboy,
tall, with bronzed faoe, a big mous-
tache and wearing high-heel boots and
a broad-brimmed hat, took in the oity
and had lots of fun before landing up
against “one of the guests.” After tak-
ing more drinks than he oould conve
niently carry around, the stranger
climbed into Simon Mike’s carriage and
told him to drive to one of the mansons
on Utah street. Passing Barnnm’s new
building the cowboy, without calling to
the driver to stop, opened the carriage
door and attempted to jump out He
fell just beyond the reach of the car-
riage wheels. Scrambling to his feet
the tall stranger Attempted to force op-
en a door in the new house, and when
somebody remonstrated the stranger
threatened to shoot.
In the mean time Mike, who bad not
noticed the (leap of his passenger, drove
on and reaching one of the aforemen-
tioned mansions pulled reind anjump-
ing from his seat opened the carriage
door to find the carriage vacant.
But back to the tall stanger. Failing
to foroe an entrance into Barnum’s
house, the cowboy strolled across the
street where he found the Schutz oar-
pet wagon standing. He untied the
horse and tumbled into the wagon,
with his feet hanging over the dash
He was too drunk to get himself to-
gether; but he grasped the lines, turned
the horse around and let her go Gallag-
Down Utah to Second street he raoed
Then out Second to El Paso and drove
up El Paso street, hurrying along the
horse with regular cowboy yells. Some-
body stopped the horse on El Paso
street long enough for a policeman to
land in the wagon beside the cowboy.
The officer took the lines and drove to
the police station where the stranger
gave his name as Jack Thorp.
Jack had lots of fun while it lasted
and didn’t appear to regret it the least.
