As an Educational Center.
' ERE prestige as a trading post does not make a city a delightful place of
residence a real home for those that dwell therein. No merchant, how
ever enthusiastic in his work, would want to spend 24 hours a day, seven
days a week, in his 'store he wants a life outside, and his husiness does not mark
the boundary of his desire.
So with a city it takes more to make a well rounded municipal life than the
mere piling up of trade. As a city grows, the desires and ambitions and employ
ments of the people widen and become more diverse. With this widening comes a
lessening of the drudgery of existence and a keener appreciation of the higher
things in life. So that men begin to think more of the proper training of their j
sons and daughters, in view of the larger sphere of opportunity open to them as
compared with that which they themselves found in their own youth.
El Paso has for years been noted for the generosity of her fathers and mothers
toward their children in offering them the maximum educational advantages they
could afford. Not only have the public schools had loyal support and been kept up
to a high standard, but hundreds of our boys and girls have been "sent away to
school" sent to the best preparatory and finishing schools, to the leading colleges,
universities, and professional schools, and abroad to study music and language or
to travel for the widening of their intellectual and social horizon.
To state the truth in a bold and uncompromising way, this has cost this city
literally millions of dollars; but it has been worth it. Our boys and girls are very
loyal to the home city that loves them, and they have returned many fold the
investment thus made in them. But it is time we were planning to create for our
selves such admirable educational conditions that it will no longer be necessary to
break up homes and banish our children some thousands of miles away in order
to "give them the best education money will buy." It is time to establish here
schools that will supply this need for the highest class of intellectual and social
training, this highest type of education of which the much abused word "culture"
is suggestive, but not expressive. p
Such is the aim of the El Paso School for Girls, now being financed and es
tablished by the most progressive and public spirited business men in the city.
This project deserves the warmest support, not only of fathers of 'daughters, but j
cf all loyal El Pasoans, because it will tend strongly to centralize m El Paso the
higher life of the people of the- southwest, and thus to fulfil this city's destiny as
s true metropolis.

Railroads and Arizona.
ACCORDING to the stories in the public prints, Arizona is going to witness
a great era of railroad building this year, and in a few months will have
her facial aspect entirely changed on the map of the United States with a
cobwebby network of new steel lines radiating from her most promising regions. '
There are meaty of resources in Arizona, to support all the railroads the paper
builders have mapped out, and. as tie railroads are necessary to open up these re
sources, it -will be to the mutual interest of the territory and the railroads to carry
out these plans as soon as possible.
Arizona is a great and rich territory, but needs railroad development. There
is plenty of capital in the country seeking investment in just such enterprises as
Arizona railroads, and there ought to be a conjunction of the capitalists and ter
ritorial interests in short order.

Mining Science" makes it plain as day. -It says: "The proper curve for the
face of the cam is the involute of a circle whose radius is the distance from the
center of the cam shaft to the center of the stem; the lift of the cam will then
be in the center of the stamp stem, and no pressure thrown on the guides until the
toe of the cam has passed the center line of the stem. The distance between the
cam shaft and stem is therefore fixed in the design of the cam, and if it is altered j
by wear of the guides, or guides of incorrect thickness, the lift will no longer be in
the center, and friction will result."

vNew Class of Emigrant.
FROM the reports of the activity of the second storymen and the dark lantern
brotherhood throughout the region, the prosperity of the southwest is ap
pealing to a new class of emigrants.
vce have been advertising the resources of the region so extensively
that the men who make their living by paying calls while peaceful people slum
ber, have evidently been attracted in numbers. This is one class of immigrant we
can do without, but one that we must prepare to entertain, since he will come.
Therefore, the wisdom of that new penitentiary at Florence, the addition to the
El Paso jail, and the transfer of prisoners from Santa Fe- to the territorial road

But in EI Paso we are not making much progress in the matter of detaining
any of our visitors of this class, regardless of their persistence in making their
presence felt in the community.

Accident Ib Common.
There is little doubt that motorman
Able did his duty and stuck to his post.
His blackened hands testify to a heroic
attempt to shut off the current. Accord
ing to the street car people, the burnout
is an unavoidable thing, minor ones of
ten occurring. From the trolley wire
the current runs to the controler boxe
at either end or the car, a shut off
switch being placed overhead above each
box. The most common burnout occurs
in the overhead box, there being a safe
ty fuse in the larger box. But dn the
case last night, the current must have
jumped past the safty fuse, burning out
the larger box. In fighting the flames,
the motorman was unable to shut off the
current from in front, but this was done
by the conductor at the rear. The low
ering of the trolley would also have ini
anediately extinguished the fire, but xhe
breaking of the switch connection was
the more prompt method, it is explained.
Railway management :s satisfied that
ihe accident was unavoidable, it being
caused only by the unexplained cross
ing of wire3 and the creation of a "short
circuit." It is evident that ths car only pro
gressed less than half a block before it
came to a stop and the flames ended. The
street car people say that the car stop
ped at Stanton street, but passengers de
ny this. Elmer IL Gray, a local contrac
tor, was a passenger on the car going
to visit a sick friend at Hotel Dieu. It
is said ithat he missed h:s corner and the
motorman had just' started to put on
breaks in nearing Kansas street when
the fire broke out.

EW ORLEANS is probably the
only American city where cook
ery is still a fine art. The
Cuisine Creole" may not now be as
splendid as it was in days "befo de
wall," but it still retains enough of its
former grandeur to deserve the respect
ful consideration of any discriminating
gourmet. New Orleans is curiously di
vided Into two parts the upper, or
American section, which presents no
special differences from any other
American city, except in the extent and
beauty of its gardens; and the lower,
or French city, which is a bit of Europe
set down on United States soil, and
doesn't resemble anything else in the
whole country. In the former section
the "Cuisine Creole" flourishes spora
dically if at all; in the latter it is still
to be seen, if not in its original perfec
tion, at least in a very interesting state
The Creole Kitchen.
There is nothing particularly distinc
tive about the equipment of the Creole
kitchen. The Creole cook, however
the real Creole cook, who grows rarer
day by day is a fat old negro woman,
with sleeves rolled up to her dimpled,
ebony elbows and a bandana twisted
picturesquely around her head. She has
no science. Her recipes are "jes a
pinch o dat," and "erbout a spoonful
er dls," and "yer lets it bile fer er
while;" but with such crude methods
her genius for cooking finds expression
in some of the most palatable dishes
that ever smoked before a gourmand.
Formerly, the continental breakfast
was universal in New Origans. That is,
everybody began the day with a cup of
coffee and a slice of cold bread. At
11 o'clock a veritable banquet was
served. But these pleasant customs
have disappeared under the pressure of
modern busints- methols. ''ven in the
Creole section of New '.r.'fans the first
meal is a 30lid American breakfast, and
lunch at midday is a mere trifle, to
tide over the interval till dinner at 6
p. m. iut the Creole still begins hisV
dinner in the old fashion with an apJ
petiser. At least one kind of wine is
served daily in every family.
The salad is always eaten immediate
ly after the soup, and not, as elsewhere
in the United States, with the roast.
Mayoanaise dressing is not as popular
as the French dressing, the latter made
wllh rather more oil than vinegar. The
typical Creole is not much given to
sweets. His dinner consists for the
most part of' meats delicately cooked
and seasoned, with much gravy. The
vegetables will not be numerous, but
the quantity of bread that will be con
sumed in the course of the meal would
stagger the Imagination of the New
England housewife. And it may be
noted, In passing, that the New Orleans
bakeries turn out the best bread in the

inally the proprietor served an early
morning meal for the butchers of the

meat; then artists and newspaper men
began to frequent the place; and so, by
degrees, came others, until now the 11

. Creole Confections.
The Creole cook book contains half
a dozen confections which are purely
local. Of these the cala, or sweet cake,
mado of rice, is one of the best known.
The cala vendors have nearly disap
peared from the streets of New Orleans,
but there may till be seen under the
arcade, near the Tulane theater, a ven
erable old negress, with her " hamper
draped in pink tarletan, and a whlsk
broom of brown paper to drive away
the flies, who sells the true cala. The
typical Creole candy is the "praline."
-"Praline" is a word which describes
the process of coating broken pecan
meats with sugar by stirring them In
the boiling sweet until it granulates,
but In New Orleans It is applied to any
kind of candy made in flat round disks,
six or seven inches In diameter.
Perhaps the sweet which is pre-eminently
Creole was "cuite." But "cuite"
is now difficult to procure, and must,
as the years pass, entirely disappear
from the Louisiana dietary. "Cuite" Is

of the north window of 'his room
just as the flashing from the burning

"It was flashing when I first saw it
and as it was almost across Kansas
street I saw the three passengers jump
from the cair," lie said. "It all occurred
so suddenly that I hardlv had time to
distinguish which one of the" three
persons jumped first or from which
side of the car they leaped". However,
I think the woman (Miss Reillev)
jumped to the rlglVt from the Tight
