Texas owns all the North sirle of the Rio Grande. If all the steers in Texas were molded into one huge steer, he would stand with his front feet in the Gulf of Mexico, one hind foot in the Hudson and the other in the Arctic ocean, and with his tail brush the inist ofF the Aurora Borealis. If all the alfalfa raised in Tex- as were baled and built into stair- ways, it would reach the Pearly Gates. 1 If all the hogs raised in Texas were formed into one hog, he could dig. the Panama Canal in three roots.

. .Ji "t >1 THE ENGINEER Just what is an engineer,, any- way? Well, that is a hard quest- ion to answer. There are many so-called "engineers," but there are few real engineers when one con- siders thescientific population of this great country of ours. In a short, brief way, I would says that the engineer, who is not what he should be, who is not . what he represents at- all, but who is the worst enemy the real engin- eer has,, is a product of one of those fellows who did not make the most of his opportunities while in training for his profession. He was. careless, indifferent,' selfish, lazy, and narrowminded when a hoy. Those bad traits of character caused , his downfall in later life. A girl, a check book and a good time were all the things he cared . for. He never thought of the fu- ture; his mind was on present things and heppenings. In fact, I doubt if the fellows of this type «ver think, A man who is classed as a real engineer is just the opposite of what I have just descr...
