Some of the party went at once to the Menger hotel for break* fast, bat the writer felt more interest in the glorious Alamo. And what is the Alamo? -Simply an old Spanish church or mission, where Davy Crockett, Col. Bowie, Col. Travis and 200 brave Texans in March 6, 1836, in the war of Texan Independence, fought to the death against 4,000 Mexicans under Santa Anna. It was not a battle; it was a slaughter. As often said, the Texans fought like devils, because the enraged Mexicans would have shot them at any rate. It was our American- Thermopylse. Afterwards at the battle of San Ja_ a decisive victory over Santa Anna," "Remember the Alamo," was the watchword. The Alamo is a low, rough limestone building, form of a cross, scarcely fifteen feet high, interior measurement 125x50 feet, and walls four fee^t thick. Earth floor. At noon, March 6, 1836, this was a mass of Texas flesh and blood. Not a wan escaped. Every hero literally died in the last ditch. An old man who says he was in the battle of San Jacinto, is custodian, and shows you around. Guide books for sale at a quarter, the proceeds for a monument to the glorious dead. We are beginning to see -native Texas. The old natives wear^a heavy, broad-brimmed hat, and have an air of ignorance and squalidness that puts schoola! . • " , About two miles out on an electric car line are Eureka Springs, water at various places issuing, clear and sparkling, from the rocks. A rough, atony spot, that in the north would be a bower of beauty. But the menagerie surpasses anything at Lincoln Park or ever at Sterling. Rattlesnakes, elk, bears, catamounts, parrots, eagles, foxes, alligators, all in good condition, enough animals 'to occupy -an inquisitive boy for half a day, and all for a dime. Summer weather, about seventy-five. People are raking lawns. Streets lively. Everybody out of doors. It is Cairo in Egypt over again. Many strangers here for the climate. On house after house you see "Furnished Booms." Hotel life is too dear for so Piles of oranges, bananas and apples, at the fruit stores, but not much cheaper than at home. A naval orange costs five cents. Leave tonight for Bio SanAntoniOiTex., Feb. .20, 1897.— During my week's absence, twice only have I been in a saloon, which I think, is doing pretty well. In Galveston, asking for a plate of oysters at a grocery, I was directed through a side dooc into a saloon, where was a separate counter for oysters. The attendant inquired if I wanted anything else (beer). Here is a saloon with two rooms filled with horns of deer, elk and other animals, a. collection for which 812,0*00 have been refused. After looking at the horns, you are of course expected to take a horn, San Antonio is well supplied with hotels, the Menger being the best. A new one to cost 9300,000 is projected by New York capitalists for tourists) The city can take care of any number of strangers. The people are very obliging, answering every question. We were all invited this afternoon to make a tour of the city on the electric cars. First to the government post Sam Houston- on edge of city, occupying eighty acres of high ground, like Cemetery Hill at Gettysburg, and commanding a... beautiful vie wY Officers? houses and barracks around an immense square, a lofty tower, flag staff, herd of deer, a regular park. It is the depot of supplies for New Meiico, Texas, and Arizona. Then to the Mexican and negro quarters. I notice the Mexicans like the high bell crown,of Charles 1C time.Cab- ins, mostly dismal and dicty. Sight seeing la hard work. On my feet dnoa morning. Top much to do a town in one day, and write it up, I am la love with San Antorilo.and could easily spend a winter bere. ' Texas baa three rival cities', and each is the best. A Houston citizen proved to metnar,for various reasons Houston is bound to becomes second Chicago. A real estate agent in Galveston demonstrated to me by a map, plain as the noee on my face, that Gal- yestou is the coming city of the South. And today an editor here made it clear as a problem in Euclid that San Antonio is easily the commercial metropolis of Texas, You pay your money, »n<J take your choice.

Mexicans in groups, with their eombief&3 oTtall bats and blankets. Now We need Spanish* That wagon with Hieglo on it means ice. A traveler tells me that there is one Spanish phrase a traveler needs more than any other,-Quanto questo? How much? Because it will be buy, buy from this time onward. As soon as our train arrived, a Mexican band of twenty-five pieces struck up, and the poor fellows blev? their horns for at least two hours. Did not play as well as_pur Keystone. . ^-EYerything jookedLllke early summer about the station. Cottohwoods green, high man cactus or Spanish needles, peach trees in bloom, men in shirt sleeves. Here a rush was made on the express agent for Mexican silver,which he cheerfully did for five per cent discount, giving you ten Mexican dollars for five dollars and twenty-five cents. Our train consists of nine Pullman sleepers and baggage car, and only one engine, but we really need two for heavy grades. ' < At the station I talked with a young man who has lived here eight years. He is a machinist, and gets 85 s day, Mexican money, but the track laborers only seventy-five cents. He says they live on tortillas, a corn cake beaten up with water and corn meal which they grind_them8_elyea. Tamales is another ttiade of^meal and chopped meatr highly reasoned, arid cooked In husks. But we ure off iigain.'and run for miles and miles through a desert; nothing but sand, cactus, oage brush, and low shrubs, Here and there cattle and sheep, b'ut how they thrive on this diet 1 cannot say.

What.bright colors; deep red. and. blue blankets. They wear these blankets by. day, and sleep in them at night. " . , Blue ridges of mountains .rise in the horizon, which ,on nearer view, urove to be bare, rugged and desolate.

With no exercise, it seems too much'. I find, an orange first in the morning a grateful thing, to be followed by coffee and'.bread and butter. There is/ho steak. Eggs two forfifteen cents. . I have just made my first investment in Mexican breadstuffs, A native at Monclora had a basket of cakes, and one kind, about as large as palm of your band, looked sp much like an old- style molasses cooky, such' an your mother made, that I bought ttn f 'at a cent apiece, Mexicano. Put O to umny American words, and you have Spanish, As this is Sunday and a holiday, crowds at the station, and among them fifty boys from six to fourteen; and as small coin are thrown into the air, it is fun to see them tumble in the duet after it, all on a pile. Some of the men wear sandals, a leather sole with leather straps pyer instep to keep in place More Mexicano. A, ring has formed, and on asking the reason of the crowd, I am told that a cock fight is in progress. This, is one Sunday amusement. We cannot be too thankful for a land of Christian homes and Puritan Sundays. This ia Spanish culture. Cuba 'libre! ••' , ' '' Why didn't we learn Spanish instead of Greek? Come so handy now. Sala de Espera at stations is Ladles' Waiting Boom. On thait freight car is Inter national Mexicano Ituta de Eagle Pass or'Mexican International Eagle Pass Koute, But these high sombreros I really b6gin to like, and I may, per. haps, wear one back. Are we in the Holy Land ? These miserable hovels, square fist roofed B tone houses, rooky* soil, bare hills, dreary, dry landscape, are the counterpart of the road from Jerusalem to Jericho.

We are climbing to higher ground. Mexico, as you know, la table land; much of it far above the sea level. Our last place, Jimulco, is over 6,000 feet high, same as Denver. Our train moves slowly up the grades and then rapidly down. A beautiful view at one point; the rugged peaks, barren and rocky to the top, circling around us on all sides. Sand and cactus and desert along the track,^ It is .Colufado over-agalnV It is breakfast time. Soon as porters have put away berths, eager calls for food. Everyone wants to be served first. Porter! Porter! He is in demand. Coffee, bread and-butter and boiled eggs is the common ration, thirty-five cents. The coffee and butter are good. But one mistake. In traveling through Mexico always .bring a lunch basket with jelly, boiled ham, pickles, crackers—things that keep which, with coffee, wyi help out your meal and save much expense. There are no lunch counters here and dining station i are far apart. We are picking up Spanish, t and think when we leave Mexico can speak It as well aa we do German, our mother tongue.

We go into the low mud houses. This woman is rolling out corn dough on a atone slab with a stone roller, into cakes the size of a buckwheat cake, which she places on a metal plate on V fire of wood coals and bakes, and then puts Into a basket for future use. In the yard adjoining house, dogs, pigs, and chickens; all small, thin and starved. Here is a better .house, high celling, plastered walls, flat roof, pictures-on wall, white- counterpane on bed, everything neat,evidently a better class, well-to do, perhaps half American. ; ' V, i ".- •' ' J '.;•• - : v:-:' . Here we saw the first Mexican soldiers in a uniforin of. white duck with red stripe down legs, white fatigue cap and leather sandals. A kodak .carrier snapped one fellow .with musket in position, and then asked him to write his name in a'pass book,, but he shook head, no, signer, couldn't do it. Ten o'clock^Sbaw and I just had our breakfast: pork and beans, tongue, bread and butter, coffee, eighty-five cents for two, Americano. The porters served all others first, and Ben and I kicked. Beally my dinner, nothing more today but an evening lunch. A lady from Illinois living here for health gives some prices: flour 86 per hundred, milk twenty cents quart, batter ninety cents pound. The, porter tells me the butter used on dining table comes from St., Louis, I suppose all good provisions come from the North, land of fair women and good cooking, ; : At one place, an acre ofwood,corded up, the mosquito) a sort of dwarf shrub with thick roota. It ia burned in the locomotives. Water .for the engines in a huge long tank like standard oil tanks, on a platform car behind tender, Here we saw our first dead native. He was run over yesterday, and wasun^er. a tent, awaitlug action of coroner. The ; body was on the main track, and as ac- cordlngito tie custom of Hie country, could not be moved, all trains have to be ewitched to a Ride track to pass. As the train was here a half hour, mQr# time for exploration, A native and wife wiih two children,' about to move, were standing by their houae- hQid goods: a saddle, some crocks,pan8, blanket, p^n pakea, a few other chat- ties, all could be put ia & wheelbarrow.

As some one said, "Nothing to Bee, let us kill time." At Gonzalea station, a low monument marks the spot where that revolutionist was shot. Occasionally we meet u ditch and a lagans or pond and strips of- green. Only irrigation is Heeded to make this country a garden, sandy aa it seems, But the long hours of bright July sunshine are almost over. What a balmy brfeeze.

Wherever"'"our trajn stops.the Mexicans rush in from every direction and gaze in mute wonder at the fair Americanos. A band of three native musician's, flute, harp and violin, assisted by a dark soprano, made music for an hour. This morning we awake at Hot Springs, and there is already a crowd of native men an women at the depot with wares to sell, As in Italy and Palestine, they live by travelers. The ladies are attracted by drawn work, center pieces and doylies, much cheaper than you can buy at home. Pretty specimens for a dollar and upwards, They ask a- good price but will generally take what you give. . . This is a Mexican morning; in fact Mexican weather. Yesterday about this rooming about 40.

I am not surprised. They persist in eating three full meals, late suppers; hearty meals that would satisfy a wood chopper.
