Neafle Is also quoted as saying that

precious few cattle cotniug from Mex-

Mr. Neafle also is quoted as remark-

How Neafle Was Quoted
The Kansas City paper quotes Neafle
"Cattle mad would probably explain
the situation as It has existed at El
Paso for several months.
"It would probably be safe to state
that more cattle have been rushed
across from Mexico Into the United
States at El Paso during the past three
weeks than during any previous three
weeks In the history of the cattle bus-
iness. Cattlemen from North Dakota,
Montana and other parts of the country
have been camping there watching to
grab cattle as they came across. But
the war disturbances have kept them
from venturing over themselves, so
they simply have been laying in wait
ou this side.
, "But It now appears that President
Madero has some federal troops guard-
ing the cattle, and protecting them so
that they tan reach El Paso and then
cross safely. II. M. Stonebreaker of
Kansas City, who operates In the Osage
country in the summer months, has
succeeded In getting 16,000 head out of
28,000 he contracted for. Montana men
have caught some of them, and they
have been distributed In smaller bunch-

"Of course we have no definite way
of getting news from the interior of the

Missouri Farmer Thinks Cattle Rais-

a pedal te The Times.
Kansas City, Jan. 12.—j. F. Smith
an extensive mule raleer of May-
view, Mo., proposes to go out of that
business and raise cattle instead, aays
the Drovers' Telegram. 8mith Is
not going to give up mule raising
because he has not made money at
it, but he thinks that he can make
more money raising cattle.
“No other animals can be kept in
a pasture where mules run,” Mr.
Hmlth said. “They are meaner than
the devil, and simply torment other
stock. Mules would kill' all the
calves you could turn Into a pasture
with them. And they would kill
pigs or sheep. So when I was rais-
ing mules. I had to give them the
pasture alone, which is sometimeu
a disadvantage. I kept over SO good
brood mares, and raised the very
best class of mules. While there 1*
money in them, still I believe X can
beat it in raising cattle. We sim-
ply must raise our own feeders.”

"LION AND MOUSE"
GETS BIG AUDIENCE
GLASS COMPANY GIVES ABLE IN-
TERPRETATION OF THE
A few years ago. “The Lion and the
Mouse" was the most successful play
on the stage. Last night It was pro-
duced by the Glass Stock company
in El PaBo. The Glass company
handled the play ably. The strong
drama was delivered In a pleasing
manner, which met with the hearty
approval of the large audience who
saw -the Introductory evening per-
formance at the Crawford theater.
The "Lion and the Mouse'’ is based
on the fable of the same name. In
place of the fabled lion there is the
octupus of the financial world who.
like the beast, ts caught in the mesh-
es of a net and Is only released by
the power of a young woman.
The players in the Glass company
make up one of the most evenly bal-
anced companies playing repertoire
that El Paso ha^ seen in some time-
In "The Lion and the Mouse” their
excellent ability was displayed. Mr.
Richard Mandell, playing the part
of the Octopus. “Jefferson Ryder,”
won repeated applause from the au-
dience by the manner he handled the
character in its different phases, from
the beginning, when he was the dom-
ineering financier, to the time he
bowed to the superior power of a wo-
man's mind. Miss Irene Hhirley as
Kl Paso's building record during 1011
exceeded that of the city of Galveston by
uesrly three-quarters of a million dollars,
and doubled those of Nashville, Tenn.
Figures for Galveston, as reported lu
the Manufacturers' Record of Baltimore,
are something In excess of 11,500,000. For
Nashville they sre $1,888,243.
The big trade Journel also gives El
Paso’s building record, 22,227,000. •
