"All Together--For Ei Paso
ALL together, now! Pull for El, Paso!
The New Year is now well on its way ana El Paso ana the Rio Grande
valley never faced a new year with better prospects; in fact, no city in the
country can boast of a better outlook than El Paso has at present. With such a
splendid outlook, El Pasoans can ana shouia join hands ana work with but one
object in view the betterment of the city ana the community. The news shouia
be spreaa broadcast. Tell the truth about El Paso throughout the year; attend to
yonr own business ana let the other person's alone ana El Paso will grow ana pros
per as she has never grown ana prospered before.
With new buildings being erected on every hana, oia ones being aemolishea for
ethers ana plans in preparation for others still, all inaications point to the greatest
year in improvements that it has ever been the privilege of any community the
size of El Paso to enjoy.
Beginning today, The Herald begins a campaign of advertising El Paso and its
tributary valley, supported by the real estate men of the city ana community, a
campaign that should bring great results before the year is half over. This cam
paign is not a one man unaertaking, but a general publicity plan for El Paso; to
advertise El Paso in the eyes of the world ana souna the fame of the city into the
remotest corners. The iaea is to attract people to El Paso; to bring them here to
see, knowing full well that once they come, they will buy and stay. The visitor
once attracted here can buy from whom he pleases; all El Paso will benefit.
El Paso and surrounding aoes not need to misrepresent the facts to attract
capital ana homesteaaers; the bare facts clearly tola about the city are sufficient.
These The Herald will tell every day in the year, and the papers will go out all
ever the United States and Me-dco and even into Canada ana other foreign coun
tries, telling of the great aavantages here ana of the progress that is being made.
Ifo city in the country can show better progress ana no city twice El Paso's size
can show a better advantage for investors. With this knowledge as a fact, The
Heraia can consistently proclaim the greatness of tie community to the woria at
large. This it has always done, but this year the campaign will be driven with
The Heraia and the real estate men will pull together for El Paso in the big
gest advertising campaign the city has ever witnessed throughout the year 1910.
Every El Pasoan can help in the work. Send out The Heraias to your friends,

meet place the facts before them; the facts are enough. .

The watchword of a watch factory is

are surrounded by lawns in some in

composed, In so far as possible, of

enough to support the panes. This is
to afford all the light possible, and
in addition to this innumerable lights

Making a watch movement Is not a
simple process. There are an average
of from 150 to 175 distinct parts to

4000 distinct operations. In this pro-1

Abraham LincolnThe American
TODAY, February 12, is a significant date in the history of America. On this
date 101 years ago, Thomas and Nancy Hanks Lincoln gave to the world a
7n?n and to America an American. Born in the backwoods of Kentucky, in a
cabin that was little more than a shelter, of a father who was shiftless and a
mother whose melancholy marked her son through life, Abraham Lincoln, an
American, "the American' he has often been called, was destined to stand as a liv
ing example of the power of human endeavor.
Prom the day, this same day, when his eyes first saw the light of day through
the chink holes of that rough hewn Kentucky cabin, until he was taken back o
Springfield by his heart broken friends, the life of Lincoln is an inspiration to
erery American. Getting his schooling from a few books, itinerant schoolmasters
and the woods ana fields, he learned the lessons of life from the people. His study
was the outdoors and his books men. Long before he was grown he would walk
to Gentryviile to read the Louisville papers and at the country store he would tell
stories and argue and discuss with men much older than he, the questions of the
Jay He learned his lessons well for school was in session with him whenever and
wherever he met a man.
That great speech at Gettysburg was not the product of a single day or in
gpirattion. That speech stands as an epitome of Lincoln's whole life. While clad in
fleer skin and moccasions back in the Kentucky frontier, he learned the logic that
went into that speech from nature and from man. At the Gentryviile country
tore in Indiana he learned to voice his thoughts and to argue wiui his equals.
When he was called to Washington to lead a divided people through the dark
est period of a nation's history, he was the one man to accomplish the task of re
storing the nation to itself. That he accomplished his mission the tribute of a
united people to his memory today is proof.
It has been 101 years today since a son was born to Thomas and Nancy Hanks
Lincoln, who was called Abraham. A little more than half this time cavers the
period of his life. The remainder of his appreciation by his people. Over the en
trance to the memorial that a united people has erected at his birthplace might
fittingly be chiseled these -words: "Here was born Abraham Lincoln, a man and

A large portion of the work lies, not
In making the watch movement, but
In making the various parts which are
afterward to be put together. In the
matter of screws alone there is much to
be done. Time was when these were
made by hand, a day's work being
from S00 to 1200. With a daily output
of 2500 movements, each one of which
required from 30 to 50 screws, would
mean that about SO men would have to

turns out daily from 4000 to 10,000 of
these, and requires the attendance of
