THE TEXAS MINER. BULLET PROOF CLOTH. LÍERR DOWE, a German tailor, has invented a bullet proof J cloth for making military uniforms. A public trial of the de- vice was recently made, where the inventor, incased in an army coat made of this material, was fired at with one of the most improved rifles. The shot was aimed directly at his heart and the onlookers, who were in an extreme state ofnervousness, were greatly relieved to find the brave tailor unhurt when the smoke cleared away. The garment is in the nature of a breast plate, of cloth looking like ordinary army cloth, and is fastened inside the regulation coat. It weighs six pounds, and is only intended to be used in actual warfare. It is said that the German Government has offered Herr Dowe 3,000,000 marks for his invention. POLLUTION AT THE FOUNTAIN. THE notorious conduct of Congressmen and public men at Washington is a national disgrace. It is an open secret in Washington that there are women, beautiful, brilliant and fasci- n...

THE TEXAS MINER. 7 Erath County Primaries. The Thurberites who went to Stephenville to attend the meet- ing of the Democratic executive committee have returned, and they report a very interesting session, and that all went smooth- ly, though heated debates arose over some few points. The date for the primaries was set for Saturday, May 19, from 8 a. m. to 8 p. m., each chairman of the precinct in which he resides pre- siding, he to appoint two judges. At the primaries only county officers will be voted for. The "test" will be that each person who agrees to support the nominees of the primary, in good faith, will be permitted to vote. On Tuesday following the primary election the various chair- men will take the votes to Stephenville and the result will be canvassed and the nominees named. In the latter part of July, date not fixed, the county conven- tion will be held at Stephenville, at which time a representative for Erath county will be nominated, and also delegates will be elect...

8 THE TEXAS MINER. Pure Food. Butter in e is a much abused product. As a matter of fact it is pure, sweet, wholesome, and infinitely preferable to ordinary country butter. A special correspondent of this paper recently visited the factory owned and operated by the Armour Packing- Co., of Kansas City, manufacturers of the widely advertised Silver Churn Butterine. A five story building1 is perfectly fitted for the scientific preparation of this food product. Everything is spotlessly clean; all appliances are the latest and most improved, and every precaution is taken to secure the production of an absolutely pure and wholesome food. All processes are under the direction of a foreign chemist who has made the skilful combination of pure sweet fats the study of his life. He pays as much attention to details as does the most fastidious housekeeper to her cooking. The result is that Silver Churn Butter- ine is ever fresh, fragrant and delicious —a dainty delicacy for the table. Scientific ...

THE TEXAS MINER. THE RAtLROADS OF TEXAS. Last week we gave a short account of the increase in the vaiue of lands through a few of the counties that we are familiar with along the line of the Texas & Pacific railroad. In talking with Mr. Volney Hall, who, though born in the Kentucky blue grass region, came to the Lone Star state many years ago, he tells us that in 1872-74 lands in Tarrant county were worth from 50 cents to $12.50, but that the latter price was for lands near Fort Worth, now worth hundreds of dollars per acre. Lands in Kaufman county were worth from 25 to 50 cents an acre, and lands west of Weatherford from 10 to 30 cents. The Hon. John Peter Smith told us that when he first came to Fort Worth there was a house where the Arlington Inn now stands, and there was not another one between Fort Worth and El Paso. Mr. P. E. Roesler of Dallas writes us an interesting letter, that is so good we copy it verbatim: "In regard to the increase of land values in Texas, there is ...

THE TEXAS MINER. nished them, the people of this enlightened country voted in 1833 to undo protection and try "tariff reform" again. Instantly upon the enactment of the law of 1833 industry and trade began to decline, and again foreign-made goods Hooded our markets with the same results that must ever follow free trade. Times were never so hard before—everybody felt the force of the blow. Farm produce and livestock went down until they hardly brought any price whatever. In Pike county, Mis- souri, as stated by the Hannibal Journal, the sheriff sold three horses at $1.50 each; one large ox, at 12 1-2 cents; Ave cows, two steers and one calf, the lot for $3.25; twenty sheep,at 13 1-2 cents each; twenty-four hogs, the lot for 25 cents. [Colton's "Life of Henry Clay," Vol. 1.] All prices fell off ruinously; labor was entirely without employ- ment; crops rotted in the barns. The revenue of the Govern- ment fell to 60 per cent, of what it had been, and money had to be borrowed at ruinous ...

THE TEXAS MtNER. LETTER FROM PAR!S ON B!METALH5M. 1894. NEW YORK, Saturday, May 5 Editor TEXAS MINER: Mr. Gibson of this firm sends us another letter from Paris, on bimetaHism, which we are pleased to give THE MiNER and to the public through the medium of our daily market letter: "While Congress is wrestling with the question of revenue tax- ation and trying to devise some new, and in one case at least, obnoxious measure to supplant a system of collecting ample rev- enues without making any one seriously feel its incidence, the spectacle is presented in Europe of a frantic search for new modes of 'raising the wind' to meet the deficits of the national treasuries. With us in the United States, we had a system ready made and in successful operation that produced an ample fed- eral income, and we did not need to disturb trade and industry by experiments. Over here, on the contrary, old methods of ob- taining sufficient funds to make both ends meet have failed, and new propositions are ...

6 THE TEXAS MtNER. OUR WASHINGTON LETTER. [Special Correspondence of THE TEXAS MiNER.] WASHINGTON, D. C., May y, 1894. Well, Coxey's army has been in Washington a week. They are camped in a spot that physicians declare to be dangerous to health and life, and from which Coxey has removed his horses, but none of the five hundred odd men have died, although some of them have had to be sent to the hospital. The receipts from admissions to the camp—25 cents is charged—and from indi- vidual contributions have so far been sufficient to feed the men, but as both have begun to fall off and the number of men in camp is constantly increasing, this condition of affairs may not last much longer. Large accessions to the army are expected this week. There has not been the slightest disturbance be- tween the police and the army since the arrest of Coxey, Browne and Jones, for attempting to speak on the capitol steps. The police court has been crowded for three days to hear their trial and they have...
