Brine How is that Claude because neither of you lives in the temperate zone. Brine your geography is like what my plug Bat ought to be off an done to you drop this fact until it gets too hot Lor you. Claude you Aud that plug hat made me absolutely disastrously and superlatively tired yesterday in that procession. You was not invited and Only a leg Puller would ride with you. You and your accomplice pulled hard Aud even the horses seemed ashamed of their Load. Besides you looked As if you was going to your own funeral and i believe you was. The germans Are onto you and you must have something better than a stove pipe to recommend you to them. Brine i did feel out of place but you Fellows said i should sneak into the procession someway so i took the first seat Iii sight. Claude you should have squeezed in just behind the Nigger singers and carried up the rear. Brine i Felt that i was carrying enough the Way i was. Without carrying up the rear or the front either. I know my capacity and business too so take your hand Oft the bottle. Claude yes sir which reminds me that from hand to hand and Mouth to Mouth the Sable bottle goes and throws a Damper on drouth that lingers a Neath the nose. Brine that a classic where you Sud it9 sat up with a Corkscrew last night and found it in my head this morning. Brine i found something too this morning. I Felt something strange in my pocket and Atter holding it to the Light what do you think i found Claude Dunno. Brine As sure As this Glass is three drops less than full a twas an Alder Man at Small. And after reaching Down still farther i found three More trying to Tunnel through my pants. The cusses were actually trying to escape and had even removed one of the patches that i had put on while sitting Down on the opposition. Claude what did you do to them brine i just threw a postage stamp Over Mem and made Mem think a circus tent had hit Mem. That a what i done. Here show Claude if you did no to talk so much there would be less bad English in the world. Your grammar is enough to make the steam roller crawl off and Plant Shingle nails to raise a crop rust. In the language of that eminent personage myself you Are Rusty. Study an almanac or a Railroad time table and maybe after awhile you can Tell where the last age commences. Besides brine Tut Tut there goes some of he grand jury and they look madder than the county Gaug. They Haven to dug the books out of Cohen a whiskers yet. Have they Claude no it would take a Long handle shovel to do that they re so deep. But say ainu to there no Way of making up with the old crowd again the old guard so to sneak brine the making apis this they ave my permission to go to he i any time Between now and Gabriel a waking up time. The tall Fellows been running too much with the people and naturally duds out in a no Good the yellow with the Long red whiskers and his red faced chum without any whiskers condemn me also.

Monterey oct. 8,1891. To the Light. On the morning of the 2nd your correspondent took a trip to vill Aldama for the purpose of paying a visit to the smelting and refining works of or. B. F. Larue which Are situated one mile North of vill Aldama on the line of the mexican National railway. We found or. Larue in his shirt the president s thanks. Capt. Schramm through the Light begs to thank Tho police Force of the City of san Antonio for their valuable and efficient services rendered during the Celebration of the German american Day. He states that he has been treated by that body of City officials especially with the utmost of Courtesy and willingness. The Cap lain also begs to tender his thanks to the Lye i a help they have rendered him during the time of the Celebration and to All and every one in particular who gave his Good will Aud assistance to make said Celebration a Success. In whiskers and All than do it. In be a Man myself Aud you bet he a a Jim Dandy. Claude but they say your Man has a Job already. Brine what is it Claude he a called the Kings Jester. You know that a Good Clown is liable to make a bad statesman. You be id some one to amuse you outside of the Council you Are certainly Well amused inside of it so have your Jester on the outside. Besides he might make theother aldermen laugh themselves to death. The undertaker will come soon enough to them. Brine politically you mean. Claude yes agitate the flags. Now i breathe better. Brine so do i. There goes the crowd now aug they re laughing at me too. I must be a unidentified ass sure enough. Claude to them you Are people ditto to me the same. Brine Well you and them a the people too can go to a Claude Hel otes brine farther than that sleeves surrounded by a Large Force of men woo were Busy hauling. On monday morning september the 28th he started the fire in Furnace no. I at the Guadaloupe station which has been kept running night and Day since he keeps two gangs of men at work at the smelter and they turn out too bats of too lbs. Each of Silver Lead base billion a Day which assays 116 of. Of Silver to the ton. He has two furnaces at present and he will erect More As soon As he can get All the material on the ground. A la the Ore that he treats is brought from his Wii mines the a tel Carmen and san Autonio a which Are situated in that District and they Are connected with the works by Railroad to the Hacienda and mule and Burro trains from out Side parties. The Al Carmen company leased the reduction works for a term of five years to the san Antonio smelting and refining company of Villarama. This company will be an Active one buyer and thus open another Market for mine owners of the Republic thus affording them a Good Market for their products. The second Furnace was opened last monday morning which increases the daily output of Lead Bullion to two Hundred bars per Day. The third Furnace which is now on the ground will be put up with All dispatch. The Plant is in thorough working order and the three will represent a daily capacity of one Hundred and fifty tons of Ore that will be reduced every Twenty four hours in addition to the operating of the reduction works at Guadalupe the shipment of Fluxing ores to the Monterey smelters will be continued As heretofore which will approximate from 150 to 200 cars or 2000 tons of Ore per month. The company have a narrow gauge Railroad six to ten Miles which connects the smelters with the first group of mines which Nave an Altitude 4,680 feet and a mule and Burro train from there to the next group of mines which Are situated above the Clouds at an Altitude of 0,250 feet. They run two trams which make three trips each a Day to the mines. The mines Are connected with the office by Telephone by which they control the run aug of the trains. The mexican National railway com Pany have run sidings and switches into the Yard Aud along Side of an elevated railway from which they dump the Ore from the mine ctr into the oars of the mexican National. All the mine cars Are Iron Aud each one holds five tons of Ore. The company have comfortable quarters tor the officers and employees at the smelter. They have their own i electric Light Plant Aud the building and the grounds Are lit up with Iti Cau descant lights. They have in connection with the smelting works a brass and Iron foundry and they do All their own castings and ail prepared to do All that class of work that May be called tor in that Section. The Plant when completed will be second to none in the Republic of Mexico. As they own 840 acres of Laud they have ample room to carry on an immense business. On saturday last they made their first shipment of 400 bars of too pounds each of Silver Lead Bullion to Monterey. This was the out but of five Days work of Oue Furnace. Or. B. F. Larue the general manager Aud principal owner of the Plant and mines in that District is one of the most progressive and go a head american mining men in Tho Republic of Mexico. He is a Man of great Energy Pluck Aud perseverance a i can to Manana and Orita is foreign to his nature. Whenever he has anything to do he takes hold at once Aud never lets up until it is finished. Or. La Rue is assisted by the following Young men who full very important positions Bertel Peterson of Patterson n. J., is assistant manager of the company or. Peterson commenced in the assaying and Laboratory department about six years ago Aud he has filled every position such As assayer mine superintendent and now As Assis cant manager. I observed while there that he done More hard work than any of the men that were under him. He is a Young Man Aud one of the most trusty in the employment of the company. We noticed als that he is very popular with the labourers on account of his gentle Manly conduct towards them. Senor Carnelas Hal Agar is another one of or. Larue s trusted lieutenants. He is superintendent of the Menias vie Jas mines and has about three Hundred men working under him. He is a Young Man and commenced to work for or. Larue As a labourer hut by close attention to the mining business he now occupies a very prominent position with the company. The same can be said of Jose men Diola who is in charge of the Montana group of mines and Francisco Perez who is superintendent of the you amp a District near Lampasas. Senor Torso Carona superintendent in charge of the Hacienda served six years apprenticeship in the Laboratory and assaying department at fifty cents Aday. But he worked his Way upwards and on account of Merit and Good conduct he has been promoted to the responsible position that he now holds. He is a native of Guada Lahara and he is very popular with the men under him. Or. Crowell the Engineer of the mines has Only been a Short time with the company but he possesses the Confidence of his employers and is very popular with the officers and miners. As we spent the greater part of one Day at the smelter we took particular note of How the business was conducted. But As or. Larue gives his personal attention Day and night to the business every thing moved like clock work. Everything was systematised each one had their work assigned to them and All of them seemed to take a personal interest in the business. Thus it will be seen that the ran Antonio smelting and refining company give employment to about fifteen Hundred women and children who Are dependent of the Minei for a living. Their monthly pay Roll is Between twelve Aud thirteen thousand dollars. Col. G. M. Wallace the managing editor of the Philadelphia runday dispatch is in the City. He is going to make a tour through Mexico and write it up. While Here he is the guest of col. B. F. Larue. Edmond.

But the Stern realities of business every Day life will be removed from the same old stand Aud the magnificent pageant remain Only a thing of memory. A our germans form a Large and we May say the most important portion of our agricultural population in this Section. They Are entitled to an annual Jubilee at the close of the Harvest season. In our City the germans form the great conservative element that has done More by their frugality Indus try and honesty to build up our City Tau any other portion of our population. A the Richness and elegance of the display was in keeping with the character and intelligence of the German americans of our City. The sixteen magnificent floats were each a poem appealing More to sentiment than to the enthusiasm of the crowd. It was Well it were so because had there been any attempt to portray local matters it would have degenerated into la political Campaign. # there were a thousand German taxpayers marching Belaud the City dictator whose backs were severely tested by the Burden of local taxation Aud it was Well for their pleasure that there was nothing save the presence of the mayor and City Council to remind them of their Burden. # # mayor Callaghan and a majority of his Council hold their seats through the votes of the nou taxpaying voters they care Little for the taxpayers except to secure the Money to feed the non taxpaying voters.
