j Wanted Poverty's Cure
; It seems odd. doesn't It. that with all the knowledge
In the world, with all the good brains and the Inventive
Kenlus and great wealth and almost endless years rf op
portunity, yet in the face of poverty and human suffering
the world seems almost helpless.
. If there Is famine In Ireland, and famines have peri
odically visited that country for ases, a fe- ship loads
of t-orn are sent In; many resolutions of sympathy are
passed; a lot of men, women and pinched children starve
to death and sink into soon -forgot tea graves, and that
is the end until another day, when the whole distressing
thing Is repeated. UTunanity seems powerless to learn,
or too callous ad Indifferent to make one calamity the
wrtaln cure for Uie next. England has had the unem
ployed problem since the days when her Inhabitants
were little better than savages. Today she has a de
pendent poor poulation of over 120,000 in London alone.
She Is absolutely unequipped to grapple whh an
vll that may engulf her. The makers of laws say they
cannot make work. And while there are enough things
feeding to be done, to give work to every pair of willing
bands, there Is no legal method of securing funds to pay
tor the tame. With the al of the queen and after
months of effort an "unemployed" fund has been raised,
but the matter has not reached the stage In which the
starving multitudes have ben able to touch the money,
kefause of red tape Inflicted by men who never felt the
wnga of hunger and who would grow faint at the Idea
f sleeping in the park:
Nothing happens without a reason. Poverty Is a
ilaease and want a cancer that can be cured. If human
ly cannot find a way to put an end to the human mls
ry that girdles the world, Isn't It almost time to vote
dr great men and the life plan a failure? These, hun
fcry folks do not ask. for wealth. In most cases they
(ilmply want a chance to earn bread with no tnouRht of
luxuries. Isn't It a big question? lie kind and char
itable and thoughtful. Those things are good lor you,
but don't let the main topic get away from you; for II
Mtloos ore 'o live, and prosper. It must some, day be
solved. Hungry men are dangerous men.

"The Law's Delay"
"Unusual' 'is the word being used to describe the
action of the supreme court in fining tie Wabash rail
road for appealing from an adverse verdict In a damage
suit with no be'ter excuse than a desire to cause delay.
It Is "unusual," Indeed. It Is most extraordinary. And
more's the pltyl It may be doubted if one person In a
hundred remembers when such action was taken before
or even knows that it Is law. But what everybody does
readily recall la dozens of cases of utmost Interminable
delay In the courts, In attempts to wear the plaintiffs
out; and what everybody knows Is that Incalculable In
justice is thug done.
The great corporations "buy their law by the year"
and can afford to exhaust the almost Infinite possibilities
of .delay, not only in hope of exhausting the patience and
the resources of the plaintiffs, but also in hopes of dis
couraging the bringing of damage suits an much, as pos-
Hible. The Individual plaintiffs are on a wholly different
footing, and for them protracted litigation Is possible
only when the amount Involved Is very large. iCven then
it Is little likely to be profitable. The delays and ap
peals and delays again result in effect in a denial of jus
tiec in thousands of cases, and that is precisely what
they are Intended to do. " '"'
The punishment pf the. Wabash was an addition ot
. Id per cent to the vwdiet from which the uppeal was
. taken, and as. the verdict was for only 13,600 the penalty
was not a crushing one. Bt the discovery of the fact
that there Is law which applies In such cases and that
' (be supreme court Is disposed to' enforce It ntisf'have

Has every Joint statehood; ad vqcate It New Mvxlco
written to some member of congress, either senator' or
representative, and urged hlin to vote for jointure? Has
the reader of this article done so? Then, friend, lt la
full time for you to do this, If you desire to show your
friendship. That is the largest, aud. most productive
field for the exercise of Individual effort. ' It excels In
efficiency even the signing of petitions. It is better that
you address some congressman whom you know, or who
4s from your old state, who is a democrat if you are a
democrat, or a republican if you ure a republican. But
these things are not essential. Write to anyone whose
uame you may secure, address him at Washington, D. C
care of senate or house of representatives as the case
may be. and ask him In a few words to vole for Jointure,
write at once. , . .
The Citizen has received a copy of the single state
hood bill Introduced in the lower houxe of congress by
Delegate Andrews. The bill was referred to the com
m It tee on territories, and there doubtless it will sleep
the slsip that knows no waking. It attempts' to' pre.
vent a vote on capital location before 1915; but of course
any such provision in the bill will be inutil0 immediately
ou tne admission of New Mexico as a state. It also
differs from the Jointure bill in restricting ,the United
suites courts to one district, instead of two, and in locat
Jng the holding of such courts at Santa Ke Instead of
Albuquerque. It also provides for holding' in abeyance
, the .duties, of any officials elected by the new state
until it is admitted to the union and the continuance
of the previous officials uutil such admittance
The annual report of the railroad commission of
Texas shows that 637.433,015 passenger miles of trans
uortatlon waa paid for and 99,944,187 mlleB was traveled
on passes, or 13.45 per cent of the total mileage. The
ommtssion states thatjt believes rle proportion of free
travel was greater than shown, based on the lateness of

When in a Hurry
Take Plenty of Time
From The Financial Review.
'When pressed with work take plenty of time for
each task." 8o advises a man who for years has ac-
compliHfied marvels of regular work with small nervous
strain and little apparent effort. Instead of nervously
thinking "I have so much to do that I must hurry," think
I must not hurry since I have-so much to do,"
More work will In the long run be accomplished,
and of better quality. No man can do more thati bis
best, and no good worker will be satisfied with less
Since the best work can never lie hurriedly performed
the moral Is obvious. Moreover, that "every otie of Us
has all the time there Is" Is none the less truo because
Indisputable and trite.
"Do you think you can keep that Improtant appoint
ment?" it is said that Daniel Webster, setting out with
but a small allowance of time, was once asked. ' es.
If I don't hurry," he replied.
The feeling, the atmosphere of hurry, is fatal to
good work of any kind, as to good health, good nerves,
good spirits, or good temper. "Make haste slowly" Is
an admirable rule.
"We are going too fast; let us stop and rest for a
minute ouly a minute by the clock," recently said a
wise Instructor, addressing an over-eager, tensely nerv
ous group of students. "Relax physically nnd mentally,
until I drop my hand." 1
"Seemed like fifteen minutes, didn't It?" he smilingly
Inquired when, with just sixty seconds passed over, he
closed his watch. "But that single minute would have
rested your brains and bodies mightily had you consent
ed to rest Instead of holding tightly on to your pencils
and notebooks and chairs."
I . A one minute rest In everv hour would be grudged
lji'Wj?raployer, and the adoption of such a plan would
result In .great saving of nervous strength and strain.
One minute, by the clock, Is a much longer period than
most people think. .
'The "plenty of time' attitude," again to quote the
capable, non-nervous worker, "Is In every way admirable
and helpful. - Take up each piece -of work as if illimitable
time wore provided for Its completion a is, Indeed, the
case always. Xhlfik 'of ,hnt piece of ork, performing
It easily and calmly, until It Is finished. Pass on to the
next in the same spirit. 'No hurry', means a Wo 'no
worfy and the maximum amount of good anil valuable
work. ,. . , .'. , .
'Such an attitude will not result 'in-loss of time or
dawdling. The good worker will work at full normal
speed, always. The 'joy of the working' that produces
tho best results inevitably will spur him ou to rapidity
quite as great as is good for either work or worker; it
will become more and more apparent as the worker
loses the despoiling, nerve racking, 'must hurry" Idea."
Some Estimate of
Annual Toy Cost
From New York Commercial.
Tha value of toys exported from Germany last year
was about $13,500,000, of which the United States, as the
principal customer, took nearly $4,000,000. Sonneberg
Is the chief center of this industry. The chamber ot
commerce of that city, in its annual report,, has this io
say of the toy industry:
Great Britain has been the principal recipient of tho
goods exported from that (Sonneberg) district, but t0
all appearances it, will ere long have to surrender first
place to the United States. Tho powerful trans-Atlantic
commonwealth, favored by a rich and Increasing popula
tion, has been enabled to retain Its Importing capacity
in spite of the protective character of Its customs tariff.
The message of t,he president was all the more disap
pointing to us, aa the hoped for reform of the tariff and
the expected reciprocity treaty were not mentioned
therein. This Is a consummation devoutly to be wished,
and must be worked for by Germany of course, with
prudence, so as not to Imperil our trade relations with
tliv United State. The constant care-aud cultivation ot
these Is a life matter for important branches of Geiaian
Industries, and will continue to remain so as long as our
products llud difficulty lu entering the markets of

tea sets, suttiary, painted plates and medallions, articles
used for electrical apparatus, stoppers for bottles, mar

class of merchandise last year aggregated 32,400 metric
tons, walued at nearly $13,000,000, of which 5ti imt cent
came to thu United States. Tho manufacture of glass'
ware, especially tubes and bottles for chemical ami med

of affairs. Hoowvell's race suicide talk Is all very well

GREAT BATTLE AT
ELK'S OPERA HOUSE
Oft Friday night, Dec. 29, the Hagy
Scenic company, besides presenting
Parsifal, will reproduce the great war
scene, the "Battle of the Yalu," which
Is without question, the greatest fea- '
ture In the war line. The battle Held
Is white with snow. At the foot of aj,
hllf appears the Jap artillery, next the
Infantry and then the advance up the ,
hill, the charge, the rush, but at the
top of the hill, when victory seems to ;
be in their grasp, they waver and are
repulsed. They gather reinforcements
and in the midst of a raging blizzard
tney return, this time sweeping every
thing before them. At another point
along the line we are close to the
Russian artillery and ee the artillery
duel with the Japs on a distant bill;
but soon the Japanese infantry comes
down through the woods and appears
in the open. It is then that we ee
the climax of the battle, ns they some
forward In the midst of a terrible
slaughter, and succeed In planting
'the Jap flag on the Russian batteries.
