A SPLENDID MINERAL EXHIBIT
FOR EL PASO-WORK BEGINS
Today Major S. M. Davis, the well
known mining: man of Colorado and the
Great Southwest, who has bad over
twenty years experience in such things,
starts out on his tour in the interest of
the El Paao mineral exhibit, under the
.auspices of the El Paso chamber of
Major Divia will endeavor to visit
every micing camp of aoy importance
in all the southwest and gather
typical collections of the minerals
characteristic of each region and
each camp. The object cf the great
exposition which has been begun by
the El Paso chamber of commerce is
to bring mining Investors Into direct
communication with mine owners and
The exhibit will be first of all for
buaiaeai purposes. It will have num
berless attractive features to the
casual tourist, but its main purpose Is
to present in the most graphic and
easily comprehensible form the win
derful mineral resources of the Great
Southwest, and to (bring mine prop
erties to the attention ef Investors.
This will be accomplished in this
way: For the present there will be
no mining exohange,or other method of
listing mining securities, hut every
facility will be granted to miners to
place their actual properties before
investors. Every collection of speci
mens that is sent here wiil be carefully
sorted, typical specimens picked out,
and libels printed that will give the
name of the mine, the district, the
owner and his address, the arsayer's
description of the minora', the extent
of the dipssit, the transportation facil
ities, acd la general everything that
the investor would want to know be
fore he looked Into the proposition any
An earnest endeaver will be male to
rrz.1!. this proposed exposition cover
every mine and Important prospect
within a radius of five hundred miles of
El Paso. Completeness, accuracy, and
honesty will ba the guiding principles.
There will be no favoritism to aoy, and
while every facility will ba granted to
visitors to make themselves familiar
with all the properties having samples
on view, there will be no attempt to
urge the merits of any particular pro
perty. The project Is one that concerns
every mining camp in the Southwest,
no matter how small or how large.
The big camps ought to do their best
to aid in making the exhibit complete,
for the good of the cause. The little
oampa ought to do their best in their
own behalf. Every assistance should
be rendered to the collector, Major
Davis, so as to save money for better
ing the exhibit in general. The rail
roads will undoubtedly help, and it is
only by lhe fullest cooperation that
completeness and success can be ob
tained. The exhibit will not be confined to
metallic ores, but will include coal,
marble, building stone, sulphur, soda,
fertilizer, brick clay, and everything
that can come under the headpf miner
al resources. The desire is to make it
typloal, not exhaustive, and the speci
mens chosen for the exhibit ought to
be honest samples, run of product, and
not picked specimens.
Mining men in every part of the
Great Southwest are invited to aid
Major Davis in every possible way
when be calls, and to be ready for
him in advance. It would be a good
plan to get up sets of specimen in ad
vance, so as to save time. Communi
cations addressed to the secretary of
the El Paso chamber of commerce
bearing on the projeok will be prompt
ly answered. The. Herald will also
be glad to get communications on the
THE STREET PAVIN6 PROBLEM
It seems to be quite the fashion for
the cities of Texas to send delegations
to other cities to study the street pav
ing problem. San Antonio and Dallas
are the latest municipalities to choose
this plan. The Dallas commission
seem to have seen a great light on
their journey to Kansas City. When
they returned they bad all kinds of
nice things to say about the city and
its Indomitable commercial club, which
is responsible for nearly all the large
public improvements that have taken
place in Kansas City in the last few
In Kansas City, they found, nearly
all the paving Is done by the abutting
property owners, because they see in
the street paving a paying investment.
Public opinion has there been educat
ed up to the point of good, clean, well
paved Btreets as elements of industrial
greatness. Good streets are a direct
asset in any city, and the people ol
Kansas City are perfectly willing to
pay their share of the cost of improve
ments. The business men say that it
Is good streets that have made the city,
and they say further that it would
have been impossible to pave Kansas
City as it is paved without the assist
ance of the abutting property owners.
Kansas City has more than a hundred
miles of asphalt street, nearly all of
which has been put down within the
last six years. No other pavement is
now practically considered, the utility
of the asphalt having been proved so
completely. The city has however about
forty miles of brick pavements, and
these are fairly satisfactory where they
have been properly laid. But cost ana
everything considered, the asphalt is
There Is everything in the way a
pavement is put down. Whether brick,
masadam, or asphalt, the foundation
ought to be perfectly sound and bar J.
Then whatever pavement surface is
used, there will ba less danger of cracks
and settling. The chief diflioulty with
the bricks is that It is practically im
possible to keep them from spreading
at the joints, making cracks, ruts, and
a very uncleanly street.
One of the members of the Dallas
commission put the situation in a nut
shell when he said, "Given the rein,
a horse will laave a brick pavement
for an asphalt pavement without any
delay. I hope we have horse sense."
Uncle Sam has won his case against
Weltmer, the magnetic healer. The
facts of the case are that the postoffice,
being convinced that the United States
mails were being used for fraudulent
purposes, Issued orders to the loeal
postmaster to stop all letters to the
magnetic healers, mark them fraud
ulent and return them to the senders
or put them in the dead letter offl-.se.
The magnetic healers atts-upied to get
out an ie junction against the postoffice
on the plea that their private mail was
he'd up &i well as the mall of their al
leged fraudulent business and they
stated that the order violated their
constitutional righta. In refusing the
injunction, the decision of Judge Amos
M. Thayer, of the United States cir
cuit court of appeals, at St. Louis, was
that the postmaster general had the
full right to withhold the mall of any
person who is found, after due investi
gation, to ba usiag the postolllse for
aoy lottery eoheme or attempt to ob
tala money by false pretences. Further
more that the government could not
possibly separate the raall of such per
sons into the guilty and innocent let
ters, and that the government was
obliged to withhold all. The court
also bell thet the righttouse the malls
is a Statutory and not a property right,
and tbat the statute prohibiting the
use of the malls for fraudulent pur
poses is perfectly legitimate and uur
assailable. The magnetlo healersJ
claimed to cure all known diseases
through the mails and made a special
ty of ourlng eases of poverty. The
cure for poverty was a mixture of
homeopathy and allopathy. They
took what money the poverty stricken
one had from him and thus cured like
with like, but they got as much money
as they cou'.d out of him and thus
made their dose allopathlcally ttroog
The recent convention of the Ame
rican Zionists, In New York city, re
vived for a few days the interest in
their dream for the chosen people.
The aim of the society is to purchase
Palestine from the sultan and give it
back to the Jews for a country of their
wn. Professor Gntheil, of Colum
bla university, is one of the leaders
of the Zionist movement in our
country. The Zionists have impor
tant societies in London and on the
continent. The movement first gain
ed great currency at the time of the
persecutions of the Russian Jews
when Jews and gentiles all over the
world were called to give aid to the
unfortunate objects of Russian pre
judice. The purchase of Palestine is
not an idea that appeals personally
to the average American Jew who
has made his home here and gives his
loyalty to our flag. The American
Jew is a man of substance, of settled
business interests, his children are
educated in the public schools
and grow up purely American in
their ideas, his home is a peaceful,
comfortable one, be holds office under
the city, state ana nation, and his
synagogues are rich, undisturbed and
respected. The Jew in America,
with the liberty ef the land his lib
erty, and its opportunities his oppor
tunities, has no pressing need of buy
ing a place of refuge in Pale-tine.
It Is the province of the reception
committee of the teachers' convention
to see that plenty of ice water is pro
vided at all hours of the day and night
for the visitors. There ought to be
a large ice water butt on every block
in the central part of the oity, tw or
three in the plsza, several on Ssn
Antonio and El Paso streets, at the
court house, city hall, chamber of
commerce headquarters, and other
points where the people are likely to
congregate. Nothing will give the
visitors a better impression than tan
gible evidence that we are caring for
One of the excursion trips possible
next week will include a journey of
2000 miles for five dollars, or over five
miles for one cent. At this rate it
would cost about eight cents to go to
Las Cruces. Some idea may be gained
f rem this as to the ridiculous ch-apne-s
of the rate. It will not be very wonder
ful if sweltering east Texaas by the
thousand oome out here to taste the
freih mountain breezes. They would
be very foolish If they did not come.
Ask any friend you meet if he does
not expect somebody to visit him next
week. There is every indication that
there will be a great pilgrimage of
people out here, to visit friends and see
take sights, who have nothing to do
with the teachers. It is these crowds
that will be hardest to number and
the care of. It is a grand opportunity
for El Paso, and every nerve ought to
be strained to mike the occasion one
to ba remembered.

A GREAT TRUTH.
All organized living things, whether be
longing to the animal or vegetable king
dom contain within themselves the germs
of death and decay.
Germs of disease are often generated
within the human system through imper
fect digestion of food, producing various
poisons which scientists have denominated
ptomaines. A stomach weakened by abuse,
gorged with over eating or over burdened
with hot bread, too rich or greasy foods or
those too highly seasoned, becomes weak
ened and fails to thoroughly digest the
food. A heavy, sodden mass is accumu
lated in the stomach to ferment as the first
step in its decay, giving off foul gasses to
distend the stomach, and poison the blood,
until it becomes thin, weak and lacking in
the red corpuscles so necessary to perfect
The over distended stomach presses upon
the heart, and the latter organ is also dis
turbed through sympathy, the same system
of nerves being distributed to both organs.
Thus palpitation and irregular action of the
heart with its attendant shortness of breath,
result, and in time, disease of the heart
itself is established. -
The gases and other poisons generated
from undigested, fermenting and decay
