'CATTLE Receipts of cattle this morning
as usual on a Saturday did not .amount to
anything and there was no market to
quote. Tori the wek the . receipts have
been quite liberal for this season of the
year, showing a considerable gain over
last week's very light run and a small
gain as compared with a year ago. The
arrivals have consisted very largely of
curn-frd steers, with only a Small sprink
ling of other kinds of cattle.
The market on beef steers, while not
overly active, has had A slightly upward
tendency. This has been especially true
Of light cattle of good quality, which have
been in very good demand ' throughout
the week. . with the result that at the
olose prices are 16fa26c higher than one
week ago. On the other hand, heavy cattle
nave not been so much sought after and
on some days have been very slow sellers
in. fact. Thus at the close of the week
the best of them are not to exceed 10c
higher, while plain klds are no more than
steady. A feature of the week's trade has
been the exceedingly good demand for
aholce light yearlings, as high as $7.00
being paid for them.
Cows and heifers have been In very
moderate Supply throughout the week, and
as the demand has been quite brisk, prices
have firmed up until they are safely lMf
20c higher than last week, so far as the
good kinds are concerned. Common and
Inferior grass kinds have been rather un
certain sellers throughout the week, with
prices showing little change.
Hardly enough business has been trans
acted on some days In the stocker and
feeder division to really call It a. market.
Until supply and demand have been light,
and with the volume of business limited.
It was not surprising that prices showed
little phange. In fact, weighty feeders are
selling now about where they were last
week, which means that they are com
manding unusually high . prices as com
pared with the way corn and beef are sell
ing. Light and Inferior grades have been
alow all the week, with values more or
, less uncertain.

HOG8 Generally sold about 60 higher
this morning, the advance being the most
noticeable on lightweights. Thus heavy
bogs did not In all cases show even .hat
mush advance. As has been the case fur
some time back, the trade was not overly
aotlve, buyers hesitating a little about put
ting anything on. Still, the hogs sold In
fair season. A - considerable proportion ot
all the hogs sold at 87. 0097.78.
Receipts ot hogs this week, while show
ing a falling off of over 6,0u0 head as 00 ni
ps red with last week, show a gain of over
4.000 head as oempared with the extremely
light run of two weeks ago. To make an
other comparison, receipts for the week are
a few hundred head larger than for the
same week a year ago. The present week
started out with a good, sharp advance,
but prices .during the next two days de
ellned, so that ail of the advance, and
more, too, was lost. The reaction" during
the latter half of the week more than
makes up for the loss, leaving values
around' 100 higher than they were at the
close of last week.
Total receipts 842 24.248 2,500

ONE WHO WORKS FOR SOULS
Story of Limber Camp Preacher and
His L'nselSsh Devo
tion. Norman Duncan writes in the July Harp
er's of a western preacher. Rev. Francl.
Edmund Hlgglns, who ministers to the men
In the lumber camps and leads a life of
One asks, why does Hlggins do these
things? The answer is simple: Because lie
loves Ms neighbor as himself because he
actually does, without self-seeking or any
pious pretence. One asks, what does he
get out of ItT I do not know what Hlggins
gats. I was ashamed to discover. If you
were to ask him, he would say, Innocently,
that once, when he preached at Camp
Seven of the Green River Works, the boys
fell In love with the singing. "Jesus, Lover
of My Soul," was the hymn that engaged
them. They sang It again and again; and
when they got up In the morning they
said: 'Say, pilot, let's sing her once more!'
They sang It once more In the bunkhouse
at dawn and the boss opened the door and
was much too amased to Interrupt. They
sang It again. 'AH out!' cried the boss;
and the boys went slowly off to labor In
the woods, singing, 'Let me to Thy bosom
fly!' and, 'Oh, receive my soul at last!'
diverging here and there, axes and saws
over shoulder, some to the deeper forest,
some making out upon the frosen lake,
some pursuing the white roads all passing
Into the snow and green and great trees
and silence of the undefiled forest which
the pilot loves all singing as they went,
'Other refuge have I none; hangs my help
less soul on Thee until the voices were
like sweet and soft-oomlng echoes from the
"Poor Hlggins put his face to the bunk-
house door and wept.
' 'I tell you, boys,' he told us, on the
road from Fix to Four, 'It was pay for
what I've tried to do tor the boys.'
"Later when the sky pilot sat with his
stockinged feet extended to a red fire In
the superintendent's log cabin on that bit
terly cold night he betrayed himself to the
uttermost. 'Do you know, boys,' said he,
addressing us, the talk having been of the
wide world and travel therein, 'I believe
you fellows would spend a dollar for a
dinner and never think twice about It!"
" 'If I spent more than 26 cents,' said he,
accusingly. 'I'd have Indigestion.'
"Agsln ws laughed.
" 'And If I spent 60 cents for a hotel
bed.' said he. with a grin, 'I'd have the

Wyo., an old range horse that Is noted for
Its stamina in long races," says Buffalo

to me and asked permission to take the
horse to Evanoton, on the Union Pacific
railroad near Ogden. There was to bo a
race from Evanston to Denver, the long
course of hundreds of miles being over
mountain, prairie and desert, or, In other
words, up hill, down hill and on the level.
All grades of horses, from thoroughbreds
to range horses, were being entered for the
race. An offer was made even for Daven

came to me and asked ma to permit him to

told him It was more than 408 miles ovor

that tt would cost like the dickens even to

This company Is the owner of the famous Palmllla Mines In Parral, Mexico, formerly owned by Pedro Alvarado, having recently secured full owner
ship of the property, though the company was originally formed with the same capital stock to secure a 15-year lease of the property on i 65 royalty
basis. The mines are located 2ft miles from the City of Parral, Chihuahua, Mexico, connected by a branch of the Mexican Central called the Parral &
Durango R. R., which passes within one mile of the property.
These properties were owned by the-father of Pedro Alvarado. No considerable mining was done until 1898. but from that time until 1906 Pedro
Alvarado produced, from the best data obtainable, $25,000,000 (Mexican). Through the careless manner in which the property was run it Is estimated
that at least 25 of the total value of the ore was stolen.
The property Is situated on what Is known as Palmllla Hill, which rises abruptly from 300 to 500 feet above the surrounding country. This hill
seems to be the vein center of the district, as veins enter it from many directions.
The development hag disclosed two well defined ore chutes. These ore chutes, designated as the North and South chute, are connected by a drift
on the 600-ft. level on the vein carrying ore of commercial value. The ores carry gold and silver In the average proportion of one-third gold and two
thirds silver In value. At the 600-foot level or lowest level these chutes are 100 feet wide. ...
The property is well equipped throughout with good shaft houses, black smith and machine shops, dwelling houses, etc., with up-to-date hoisting and
pump equipment and also with an aerial tram 2 V6 miles in length from the mine to the railroad at Parral.
Work Done by Present Management'
The following letter from Prest. A. J. McQuivtters shows the work that has been accomplished by the present management:
To Directors and Stockholders, Dallas, Texas, June 26, 190H.
Gentlemen: Since accepting the presidency of the Alvarado Consolidated Mines Co., I have been In very close touch with Its local management. In
fact, I have been almost constantly at -the property. . '
From an examination of the mines at that time It was evident that we had two very Important problems confronting us; first, the successful handling
of the water In the mine, and second, to prove the mine to depth.
To accomplish these results we first Installed a large and adequate pumping plant on the 6th level and are now handling the water with comparative
ease and at a very nominal expense. We retlmbered a number of the shafts and installed up-todate electrical hoisting equipment. A large working tun
nel was driven through the Palmllla hill for a distance of 1,100 feet, which taps the mine workings at 437 feet below the collar of the shaft, thereby re
ducing the water and ore lift 437 feet. A three-compartment shaft was started at the tunnel level and Is now down to a depth of 360 feet below that
point or 200 feet below the lowest point worked by Alvarado, and Is still being sunk at the rate of 2 feet per day. At the bottom of the new shaft, or
the 800-ft. level, we are cross-cutting and drifting through the ore bodies, which work when complete, will give ug enormous ore reserves, as we will
have opened 200 feet of virgin ground.
The upper levels have been carefully examined by our engineers, who report more than 300,000 tons of milling ore left In the mine by Alvarado and
blocked out by us, that will average net values, after treatment charges, of $7.00 per ton (gold). We have over 250,000 tons of ore already mined and
now on the surface, from which we have taken over 3,000 samples, the assays from which indicate net values after deducting treatment charges of $6.00
per ton gold. '
We have been prospecting the bottom of the mine, where we expect to Secure pur high-grade 6re,,with diamond. drills to an average depth of 225 feet.
A large number of assays from these drill holes showed ore of fabulous richness, as 'well as proving the existence of large bodies of mining ore. As the
ore bodies are more than 100 feet wide at this depth with a combined length of more than 750 feet, the quantity of ore indicated from the diamond drill
prospecting would be from 900,000 to 1,100,000 tons. Taking the average of the high grade and the milling ore and It Is safe to figure upon the com
pany realizing very handsome profits In the treatment of this toflhage.
As we have demonstrated by diamond drills that the ore bodies at a depth of lH feet below the 600-ft. level are over 100 feet wide there Is, of
course, every reason to" believe that the values and size of the bodies continue to great depths.
Having Bolved the problems of handling the water and having proven the permanency of the .veins and values below the water level and having dem
onstrated In a satisfactory manner that the ore yields readily to treatment and that excellent results are obtained, I unhesitatingly recommend the Im
mediate construction of a cyanide mill of a daily capacity of 1,000 tons to be constructed In units of 260 tons each. Very truly yours,
(Signed) A. J. McQUATTEIts! President.

"Well, he rode sway on the 450-mlle trip
to the point of starting the race, crossing
the Shoshone mountains on the way, as
well as another range. He arrived In Ev
anston only a short time before the race
was to start. He had no time for rest or
refreshment. The other horses had had
days of rest and every possible attention,
and many of them had been In training.
Feeding his horse and allowing to It and
himself a few hours of rest, the cowboy
took his place among the racers. He' as
tonished everybody by making 112 miles
the first twenty-four hours. l"0 miles the
next day, and ninety miles the day next
following It. and finally won the race to
Denver. That race bad been over moun

OLD-TIME FRONTIER GAMBLERS
Aa Extinct Race of Men, One a
Parlor In the Maklai of
There died In Butte ths ether dsy ons
of the last of sn almost extinct race the
old time frontier gamblers. Of them llttls
good hap been written. Now snd then
some churchman, seeking the salvation of
the mining ramps and dishearten) d by the
barren eoll, was given such moral help as
the fraternity was capable of, and rlotounly
of Its submance. Singularly enough, these
men of the cloth have borne the only elo
quent written testimony to ths white char
Ity of the gambler. In pages of fiction he
was the central figure In evil brawls and
plots. Yet truth compels the statement
that this product of a fiercer civilisation
had qualities, other then marksmanship,
that commanded no mean respect where he
was best known. Perhaps because the fra
ternity was wholly bad, as a nils, did these
better men of their class stsnd out as
strong leaders In the forces that moulded
our frontiers Into cities and states. Alert
and keen they were, as men who survived
a lime wbsn ths pomp of power and the
kingdom of men were both, represented by
the six-shooter. Their business was. until
a few years ago, lawful In many of the
western states. Legislators haggled over
stud-horse poker, faro, roulette, and fan
tan, and the tax thess games should pay.
When frontier society got to the point of
derby hats, four-in-hands, and polished
shoes, the gambler asked no place In t lie
social order. In the changing fuxhlon he
felt the Indignity of his cslllng. Outlawed,
he fought pitifully for hU ancient rights;
but his race was run. He was a prt,
nevertheless, and. outside of his calling, a
not unworthy part, of those courageous,
dynamic forces which finally became abid
ing communities; and In a world whors
virtue Is often comparative, and where
suiwly It shines the more brightly for Its
evil setting, let us pay him that meed of
pralss. At least hs looked his victim In
the eye, defended by no greater barrier
than a three-foot table. Perhaps he was
no worse than the man of our own time
who. secure In the deepest labyrinth of
organised society, takes, under form of
law, toll from ths food and clothes of the
poor, or the one who lures to financial dis
tress by flaring advertisement lbs dupes of
this foolish worlds
