URGES DANCE AS GRACE
PRODUCER FOR WOMEN.
Show Girl DedareH Fancy Steps Rest

to All Wouicb.
Virginia Forbes, one of the show
girls in "The Pwed Mill," advises all
women who wish to be praceful to take
lessons in fa"ncy or clog dancing. Miss
Forbes points out that It is dancing,
practiced by TOmen in musical shows,
that maikes them so graceful when not
on the stage.
"Any woman would be benefited more
by indulging in lofty kicking and fan,
cy stepping -than in playing bridge
whist all afternoon," said Miss Forbes.
"Systematic dancing in moderation is
one of the best of exercises. Indeed
some physicians declare that next to
hbxseback riding it is the most bene
ficial of all. As soon as the women
of the present day, who now devote so
much of their time to whist, or to read
ing trashy fiction, learn the real value
of "dancing, I believe dancing clubs wdll

Cal., Col. B..F. Hammett passed away.
To him we are deeply indebted for
much of the civic progress we have
enjoyed during the past ten yeara. At
a personal sacrifice he became chief
executive of this city in 1901. at a
period in the history of El Paso,
when we were sorely in need
of an able, fear-jess and conscientious
leader. How well he performed the
burdensome task assigned him is evi
denced by our present standing as a
progressive and prosperous city.
"In private and public life he hon
ored us. In death, we. who have been
the recipients of his labors, should find ;
this a f jttlng time to confer upon him
the last testimonial of the high es-
teem in which he was held,
"Therefore. I. Joseph U. Sweeney,
mayor of the city of El Paso, respect
fully request the citizens of El Paso to
refrain from pursuing their usual voca
tions during the time the funeral cor
tege passes through the streets of the
city on Monday, February 21,, at i

merchants to close the doors of their
business houses. I direct that all mu

that flags on all municipal buildings
shall be displayed at half mast.
