1st, see Cale's, Derek's, and Brent's comments. All good.

To use books you probably already have - play Rochut etudes one phrase at a time. The first time play as written, go back and play again an octave up, then third go back and play down an octave. Don't worry about missing the upper notes, the point is doing it right (without cheating) and building up your accuracy and endurance.

Art Lehman's Art of Euphonium Playing (T.U.B.A. press) is a good resource as well.
