AGED MAN IN EL PASO SAYS HE KNEW DIAZ
WHEN HE WAS CAPTAIN.
Is Now Living in EI Paso in Poverty and Thinks President
of Mexico Becognized Him When He Was on His
Visit Here to Meet Mr. Taft Was One of the
Four Who Fired the Shots That
Killed Maximilian.
"Men should be judged, not by their
tint of skin,
The gods they serve, the vintage that
they drink;
Nor by the way they love, or fight, or
sin
But by the quality of thought they
think."
"When the great Diaz came to El
Paso, on that recent and brilliant oc
casion wien two presidents met in the
sister cities of the border, an incident
occurred which was not recorded, per
haps unnoticed except by two "very old
men. An old Mexican, a very old man
In shabby workman's garb, saluted the
president from the curb stone of Santa
Te istreet as the carriage sped past. z
Now this very old and workworn
Mexican raised his hand to a weather
beaten hat in the military salute of a
naif century sago, not as the soldiers
of any country do today. And the great
Diaz as he passed, seeing the man,
raised his hat In answer to the antique
salute. The great Mexican bowed verjr
deeply, the carriage sped on, and the
incident was ended.
"Whether the great Diaz recognized
In the very old man on the curb stone
the person of Juan Henna, old soldier
of the republic, Is not known except
to Diaz himself and probably never
will be. Perhaps the president merely
acknowledged, with presidential de
mocracy, the military salute of his
country. But the man who raised his
iand in the old salute of the Mexican
army believes that he was recognized
by Don Porfirio. whom he knew and

habit of work. But a few months ago
he was working in the street, a laborer
with a shovel. Now he is out of work,
seeking employment at the age of 81
years.
But Juan Menna as a workman bears
less interest than Juan Menna '-as a sol

Menna is a natural humanitarian,
humble and ignorant, true, but a hu

"Yes, I was in many battles, I do not

they always let me go free. "Why? Well,
senor. I do not know exactly. Perhaps
they knew,that I was made to be a sol

They let me free, and no matter where
I would go, they would find me,

Story of the Hard Luck of a
Nogales, Ariz., Jan. 8. A. D, Peck,
who is conducting mining and livery
interests in Nogales, has achieved his
success In the territory by experiences
unusually discouraging.
In early youth Mr. Peck came, west
from the state of New York and, after
a period of prospecting In different
parts of the southwest and Sonora,
Mexico, he settled on a ranch pear
Calabasas a village ten miles north of
the town of Nogales, Arlz.,n what Is
now Santa Cruz county. Here he car
ried on .extensive cattle and horse in
terests. This settlement was made in 1884,
and two years after this, early one
morning in April, Mr. Peck and Charlie
Owen, a friend and fellow cattleman,
saddled their horses and went out on
the range as usual.
Owen had roped a cow and they were
just about to make ready for brand
ing her when a nearby report of a gim
was heard.
"Run for your life; it is Apaches,"
I said Peck in terrified tones.
And both men mounted their horses
and fled as fast as horse flesh could
take them, In different directions, how
ever, and right after them, riding" as
only wild Indians can, dashed the
Apaches. Owen was murdered and his
body recovered some days later in the
hills.
Captured by Indians.
Peck was quickly overtaken and
surrounded in that magical, stealthy
indian way of springing up on all sides
in a flash. His horse was shot in the
head and fell from under him dead. The
indians approached him, removed his
boots, his hat and his coat, leaving him
barefoot and with little clothing on and,
during these perilous moments, expect
ing every breath to be his last, one of
the Apaches, who could speak English,
said to hijn: "You gave a pair of shoes
once to an Apache child and because of
that act, we are not going to kill
you."
It had been some months before this
that Mr. Peck was returning from No
gales with a pair of shoes tied tD his
saddle for his own child and, seeing a
little Apache tramping along with
bleeding feet, had given the shoes to
the child, which incident was not for
gotten -by ther indians and saved his
life.
Released by Indians.
After removing most of his clothing
the indians took them and gave Mr.
Peck a small piece of silver, about ten

ASHINGTON, D. C, Jan. 8.
There isno question of the
fact that Washington Is rapid

center of the United States. Not only
are multi-millionaires from all over the
country coming here to live, but' the
,-ery rich New York people, such as the
tf-onderbilts p-nr! Rpimnntc nr tMiMrltnc-
Vanderbilts and Belmonts, are building
palaces at the capital for winter occu
pancy. The Perry Belmont mansion, at
the junction of Eighteenth street and
New Hampshire avenue, is almost fin
ished, and it is understood that the
George Vanderbilts will begin to putf
up their palace, a couple of blocks fur
ther up the same avenue, In the spring.
In a social' sense, the Washington of
15 years ago was a village compared J

but newly arrived from Chicago, and
were erecting their huge white brick
residence on Dupont Circle. It was the
first of the great private palaces, which
since, then have been rapidly multiply
ing, so that today they are numbered
by scores. Nineteen servants are em
ployed In the Letter mansion; but the
X,arz Andersons havens, and the Scott
Townsends (nearly opposite the Ander
sons on Massachusetts avenue) are un
able to get along with fewer than 30.
The expense of running one of these
huge establishments merely to keep it
in commission, that is to say. Is from
$75,000 to 5150,000 a year.
Homes Like llQtera.
They are rather like hotels than like
private houses. Indeed, the new palace
of Thomas F. Walsh, on Massachusetts
avenue, is larger than a good many
city hotels. The lives the occupants
are obliged to lead are necessarily
somewhat artificial. It Is hardly pos
sible to cultivate a home atmosphere
under such conditions. Kathryn Elklns

that old Juan Menna seeks work, that he

work in gardens. Will the senor ask?
Such is the story Juan Menna tells
of the killing of the emperor invader
of Mexico, long ago. It is not exactly
in accordance with the historians. But
perhaps the scribes may be at fault in
the detail. , . ..

by the piercing of the bullet, the
mother -was standing with the child in

tered her left arm, then the body of
the child and finally ner body.
The bodies were frightfully mutilat
ed. The little golden head of the baby
was beaten into a. perfect mass of jelly.
And to add to the atrociousness of their
crime, the indians had emptied the hot
contents of the cooking vessels pota

the time over the bodies and then
covered all with jt cloth.
The Bodies Rescued-
Mr. Peck immediately -set out afoot
for Calabasas, it being the nearest

j wired to Nogales. A posse was at once
formed to go out and br"ng in the
bodies for burial. Mr. Peck having
been forced to walk miles over cactus
and brush without" shoes, besides the
intense mental suffering, was not al
lowed to accompany the posse to the
spot. The bodies were buried in No
gales. Besides laying waste his home and
murdering his family, the Apaches
robbed Mr. Peck of a large number of
cattlo and horses.

After this heartrending experience he
came to Nogales and bought property
valued at 10,000 on the international
line, which was ordered removed by the
United States government, together
with all other buildings on the line, In

established.

If one is to enjoy all the advantages
or weaitn ana zasnion, nowever, one
must make up one's mind to relinquish
certain comforts among others, that of
privacy. Inevitably, too, there is in the
private palaces enormous extravagances
and waste, especially where food sup
plies are concerned. An intimate friend,
permitted by a multi-millionaire's wi'e
to glance over some cf her household
accounts, chanced to notice that the
mistress of the establishment was pay

Chaperons for Girls.
The young girl who lives In the pri
vate palace Is never allowed to o out
alone, up to the time when she makes
her debut in society. A governess, or a
chaperon hired by the hour, always ac
companies her. This is rather a new
idea. After "coming out," of course, it
is different- But that event merely
marks the beginning of a period duri jg
which the endurance of the physical
feminine machine is tried to the ut
most. Nothing short of scientific man
agement will enable even the healthiest
young woman to go through two or
three seasons of "smart" uptodate so
cial dissipation without losing the
bloom of her youth and the better part
of her beauty.
This is why the fashionable debutante
of the season of 1909-1910 is treated in
all important respects as if she were a
doll. She is put to bed like a doll, by
her maid, and got up and dressed like a
doll. Her bath Is drawn for her, when
she wants it. She does not know how
to "do" up her own hair. She never
to "do" her own hair. She never
anything useful from the time she gets
up in the morning until the time she
goes to bed. She never takes any care
of anything. If a dress, or any other
article is to be put away, the maid does
it. If a handkerchief is needed, the
maid gets it.

Tliere is lots of satisfaction when you sell a man a
piece of property and then he thanks you for selling
him and invites the "house" to cigars. But that
very thing occurred in our office recently and the
man was among those who purchased one of the
small tracts in the upper Mesilla Valley. There is
always; one thirtg that this firm has done "to see
that the property is just as represented to prospect

invest again. "When we tell a customer that five
acres, ten acres or 20 acres, of the small tracts, which
we are selling in the upper Mesilla Yalley will pay
for the farm in one year we mean what we say and
can convince anyone who will believe in facts. And
we repeat that one crop of onions or cantaloupes wjll
pay for one of the tracts whether a 5 or a 20 acre

taught the value of anything. She
knows nothing that is really worth
knowing though she Is well acquainted
with many things she ought not to
know. What education she has ac
quired at a fashionable school, before
"coming out," is a false fabric a mere
pretense- But she does not need educa
tion; her work in life Is to be orna
mental, to amuse, and to be amused.
She gets up at noon, usually, and is
rubbed down by a professional mas
seuse, just like a horse- This i to re
move all traces of the fatigue arising
from the dissipations of the day before.
Her neck is rubbed to make it plump,
and her face likewise, to discourage
commencing wrinkles. As a rule, she
is manicured in bed, and regularly once
a week her pretty toe-nails receive
similar attention.
Three Hours o Get 3laCy.
It takes her not less than rnree hours
to be made ready for the day. The
dressing of her hair Is in Itself a great
affair there Is so much of it to b"g, put
6nr Indeed, the average society woman
today wears much mqre hair than ever
grew on one human head. Rats? Not
one. The proper thing Is to wear a
coiffure that is In the main artificial,
but wholly composed of real hair of the
most beautiful and expensive kind.
The young lady's own hair Is combed
straight back from her forehead, and
upon it is superimposed a circular, or
semi-circular, arrangement of real hair,
soft and lovely. Puffs are then added,
with here and. there a. coquettish curl.
It is safe to say that no women that
ever lived were so artificial, in a physi
cal sehse, as the fashionable women of
today. As for the hair, dyes have never
been so .generally used. But they are
much better dyes than were formerly
obtainable, "and so the employment of
them Is not likely to be suspected. Some
of these dyes are bought In the shape
of powders, which are brushed Into the
hair. They produce a very beautiful ef

The fashionable woman of today has
a much better figure than, her prototype
of a generation ago, or of any bygone
period. Her shape may not be better,
but figure is an entirely different mat
ter, being determined largely by tho
corset-maker and the dressmaker. The
woman of fashion 30 years ago thought
$5 ahigh price for a pair of corsets; to
day she thinks nothing of paying $75,
and has them specially fitted. Often
they are uncomfortable, it is true; and
she finds it difficult to sit down, be
cause the stays come nearly to her
knees; but they give to her body the
seeming contour which she "desires, and
are well worth 'all the suffering en
dured. The fresh-air treatment, which is do
ing so much for consumptives, Is ap
plied to the fashionable woman of to
day for the preservation and improve
ment of her beauty- especially for com
plexion and color. A look of vigor is
essential to the modern idea of beauty.

the old ballad Is out of date. Hence It
Is that the present-day woman of fash
Ion spends much time out of doors.
Exercise aad Beauty.
Exercise- Is all-Important for beauty.
Accordingly, she rides & great deal, and
plays golf and tennis. But when It is a
question of avoirdupois, my! how she
works. In the privacy of her boudoir,
she goes through all sorts of bother
some "stunts," such as picking- up
something 100 times in succession, or
lyine- down on her back and kicking.
-Anything to discourage an increase of
the waist measure or over mucn xat :n
the abdominal region. These are days
when the fashionable woman of middle
age expects still to retain at least some
thing of her youthful appearance; but
how is she going to do it If that fatal
spread at the hips, with the consequent
waddle, arrives?
The latest fashionable fad for dis
couraging adipose deposit is to stand 20
minutes after each meal. This is sup
posed to prevent the above-mentioned
tendency to accumulation of flesh about
the hips. Less wine, too, is drunk at
dinner. Physicians say that alcohol in
any shape encourages fat. At some
very "swell" dinners whiskey and soda
Is served instead of wine, and a liquor
instead of the after-dinner coffee. This
latter is a recent Innovation.
Dinner at 9 p. in.
The' most fashionable Washington
people are now dining at 9 jj. m. If
tHeS" expect fo? go io the theater; the
meal Is served at 7. Even so, they do
l
!
Both Phones
not expect to arrive at the theater until
9, or half past 9 the really modish Idea
being that the latter half of a play or
an opera is always the best part of it.
As a matter of detail, the fashionable
woman should have 40 or 50 pairs of
shoes. To change them frequently rests
the feet. Of course she must have a
different pair of shoes for every cos
tume she wears. Calls are made after
the theater- TMs Is another new idea.
And yet another Is to be "at home" to
one's friends on Sundays. An informal
reception on Sunday makes the day
much less- dul. ,
Where do the children come in? The
answer Is that In fashionable life now
adays they don't come in at all. At all
events, their mothers do not bother
much, with them. If little Charlie, or
his sister Jane, sees mamma, once a. day,
for a few minutes before dinner per
haps, that ought to be sufficient. Nurse
will do the rest. But the deputy mother
nowadays, in the gay world, is required
to be a professional trained nurse, who
wears a uniform. She gets $25 a week,
and is cheap at the price.
