The Auto Speed Maniac
THE recent serious automobile accident on. the county road, one of many that
have occurred of late, again calls to mind the necessity for street traffic
regulation for automobiles-
The city and the state have laws regulating the speed of automobiles and
the officials apparentlyare making an effort to enforce them. The city motor
cycle policeman frequently makes arrests inside the limits of his jurisdiction, and
the county some time, ago appointed a man tp loot after the matter of speeding
on the county xoad, but without means of overtaking the joy riders, his task is a
At night, it is almost impossible to see the numbers on the machines. The
result has been indiscriminate racing to the detriment of the life of both those
in the autos and in horse drawn vehicles. There have been several serious acci
dents on the county road as a result of this mania for speed and the wonder
is that there have not been more.
It is a great danger, this madness for fast automobile riding, and the severest
penalties allowed by the statutes should be enforced against those guilty of vio
lating the law. The county road belongs as much to the drivers of buggies and
other horse drawn, vehicles as to the automobilists, yet the "joy riders" utterly
disregard the safety of themselves and others and speed up and down the paved
roadway frightening horses, .making drivers dodge and scurry to get out of the
way, violating all courtesies of the road and decency of manners.
Not all automobilists do this any more than all people of any particular
class are criminals, but many of them do and these speed maniacs should not be
dealt with leniently. If only to stop the practice of frightening horses, the
practice should be ended, but this is not the worst. There is grave danger to
every person who goes for a drive on the county road, especially after night, and
it is just as criminal to cause the hurt or death of a person in another vehicle
through the unlawful speeding of an auto as it is to take a life or wound a person
in any other way. The danger is greater in the city limits and, Tegardless of
the watchfulness of the police, there is much of it.
Only severe penalties in the courts will make the reckless automobilist obey
the law, and all sane automobilists should lend their aid in its enforcement,
for the recklessness of a few brings down the condemnations of the people
on all. It is a case parallel with that of the saloon men. Many saloon men
observe the law and conduct their places according to law, but others disregard
the law and violate it in every possible way, with the result tnat the business
zs a whole has been condemned and prohibition is spreading.
If the automobilists themselves do not take steps to see that the Jaws are
complied with, the entire fraternity will suffer, for more rigid laws will surely
be the result. The Texas legislature is a legislature of farmers; farming com
munities are in the majority, and the farmers are the ones who find the greatest
fault with the reckless auto driver. First thing we know, Texas will be passing
laws that will make it almost impossible for automobilists to drive through the
country, if the cause4 of the farmers' hatred of the auto is not removed by properly
punishing the law violator and making

Education and Ambition
IT IS essential, in the well rounded training of young girls and boys, that the
influences around them in school tend always to direct thought and desire into
higher channels, yet without removing the school room too far from .the
everyday desirable influences of home and of normal community life. Too much
separation means the fostering of false ideals, the setting up of false standards
with the result that there is lack of harmony and diminished usefulness after the
most earnest and self sacrificing parental effort.
The advantages of "sending away" our girls and. boys to school are apt to be
overestimated. The home life after all is best, and complete separation is apt
to bring regret and disappointment Many a father and mother is saddened
through life because of missing the companionship of a beloved daughter during the
years of girlhood and unfolding womanhood the years from 12 to 18 or 19. This
is not necessary, provided we build up for ourselves such perfectly planned and
conducted schools as wpl give our girls the fine advantages we crave for them,
without removing them entirely from the sweet companionship of home.
The EI Paso School for Girls, now being established on a permanent oasis
and a high plane by a group of El Paso's public spirited business men, will be
such a school. It will be directed by women of high intellectual attainments,
thorough training, long experience in schools of the highest grade; by women of
high ideals, broad knowledge, and intimate understanding of the vital needs of a
young girl during the formative' ears.
The project deserves warm support, because the city needs it and will be the
better for it. Such a schooljjnevitably becomes a center of refining influence
that tends to raise the standftds of home life and community life, and helps the
younger generation to live up to the ideals of life's truth, beauty, and aim, held
for it by the elders, of clearer vision andrich experience.
What we want is the correct census of EI Paso. "We don't care how it is
districted if all the people, are counted.
It is getting to be an old gagjthat "may report the statehood bill soon."
What the people want is the bill reported and passed.
One advantage of the buttermilk collar over the old celluloid one is that there
is not such great danger from fire. Hot heads have been afraid to wear tie

John Temple Graves, the noted south

plainly and simply a demagog a stir

ends of his personal ambition and never
a real leader or a patriot in his public
life. For whether arguing against a
political opponent because he wore clean
linens, or changing his standard hos
iery for yarn socks in the eye of his
rural constituents, he appealed always
to the lower rather than to the loftier
instinct or ins people, and rose to j
power in an interior state out of that
transitory period between the dying
prejudices of the war and' the fierce
jealousies of the general class as
against organized wealth.

Curing By Hypnotism
SUGGESTION IS REPLACING DRUGS IK AILMENTS.
ECAUSE the people of this country
work and live under high pres
sure, overtaxing their mental and
physical resources, many of the leading
physicians and scientists of the United
States have abandoned drugs as the
cure for the nervous wrecks presented
to them for treatment. It is becoming
the fashion among many of the most
brilliant practitioners to treat such
cases with neither medicine nor knife.
The new remedy is thought, or the use
of suggestion with the aid of hypnotism-.
There are physicians in New York,
Washington and other large cities -who
say to the exhausted, nervous society
women: "You do not need anedicine. You
anust teach your brain and your nerves
to rest. You must receive into your
mind the competing message that the
only thing which can help you is calm
and repose. "We can give it to you, but
not by the use of medicines or drugs"
To the business man, who has goni
under such pressure that he can con
trol neither his nerves nor his brain,
they give the same advice. Hypnotism,
which was once regarded as witch
craft and later its an instrument only
for harm, has become a benign Influ
ence on modern American life, a prac
tical remedy for the distinctively Amer
ican ailment of "nerves," and the men
tal troubles which follow. It has har
monized many a shattered nervous sys
tem; it has saved countless men and
women from Insane asylums, and It has
been demonstrated as a reliable cure
of certain cases of drug and cigaret
A "Washington physician, who is
known as one of the pioneers In the
'movement to treat the ailments of the
brain by the curative force of a healthy
and normal mind, recently had a young
man patient who was literally a nervous
and physical wreck from the use of
cigarets. He told the pattient that hyp
notic suggestion was the only possible
pure for him. and the young man agreed
to try it. For five different treatments
he was hypnotized, and there was con
veyed to his receptive mind by the phy
sician this one thought: "You will never
want to smoke another cigaret; but. if
you do, it will make you feel deathly
sick, so sick that you will never try
to smoke again." After the fifth treat
menC the doctor declared the cigaret
victim cured. Two days went by with
out any craving for cigarets on the
young man's part. On the third day
he attempted to smoke one. but was
seized with such violent nausea that
to this day he has never touched another
Simplicity of Cure.
This is a serviceable example of the
simplicity of the cure which has been
advanced for a nation which Is nerve
ridden. That such a remedy was sorely
needed is shown by the fact that, while
the death rate from contagious dis
eases has dropped 49 percent since 1S80,
the mte from kidney, heart and men
tal troubles has increased 83 percent.
The physicians say that the women of
America, as well as the men, live on
their nerves, because they do not stop
when their wearied bodies cry out for
rest. They bee everybody else on tne
go. and they do not believe that they
can afford to be left out.
A New York physician is authority
for the statement that the number of
nervous collapses and breakdowns
among society women has grown to an
almost incredible extent. A "Washing
ton doctor says that, In addition to so
ciety leaders being broken in the fierce
social competition, there are members
of congress and other government offi
cials who break under the strain. Both
physicians agree that much of the ner
vous trouble is caused by the Increase
in drinking and sanoking in what is
known as "high society."
Cured of Drink Habit.
The New Yorker on one occasion
treated a society woman who was plain
ly the victim of intoxicating drink. He
aiKea ner u sue aranK to excess, and
sne manifested indignant surprise that
he should ask the question. Finally,
her explanation was that she drank
nothing but absinthe; that she did this
only when she needed it as a medicine;
that she frequently became exhausted
by her social duties, constant calls and !
late hours, and that absinthe was the j
only tonic which kept her on her feet. -
i pon nis saying she must discontinue J
ine aDsintne urinKmg, sht professed her
utter inability to do so. After he had
treated her by hypnotic suggestion she
neither liked nor needed absinthe. She
left it alone absolutely and in. three
months was again well and strong.

A "Woman Cnrcil.
To the Washington physician there
came a woman who had been constantly
on the go throughout the social sea-
son. Physically, she was so nervous
that her hands trembled, and her men-
tal distress was acute. She had become
possessed of the haunting idea that she
niis uiways soin& 10 oe laie mr me
next particular function which she was
to attend. That idea got possession
of her nerve racked brain and never
left her. It is only to conceive of the
tortures she suffered, and how she in
creased them day by day In her unceas
ing rush and haste. When she first went
to see the doctor, she could not sit still,
but paced up and down the room while
she told him of her trouble.
Hands of Clbclc Turned Back.
He made her sit down, and. with a'few
passes over her eyes, put her to sleep,
saying to her In a distinct, commanding
voice: "You have lots of time for every
thing you want to do. At any time that
j'ou feel you have too many engage
ments, you will break those which are
too much for you. You will never hurry
any more. You will never run from
your door to 3our motor car. You will
in all things be calm and restful. You
have lots of time lots of time." This
formula was repeated to her through
eight or 10 treatments until, one after
noon, when she was awakened, she said
carelessly: "I've no intention of going
to the 's ball tonight. I've been
doing too 'much, and I'm going to take
my time hereafter." From that minute
she was cured.
A Congressman Cured.
Another case was that of a member
of congress, who had been through a
hard fight all summer and autumn for
his nomination and election. It was
liis first term In the house of repre
sentatives, and he had -continued to work
long hours every day after reaching
Washington. In his state he was known
"as a speaker of unusual ability, and
he had planned to make his oratorical
debut on the floor of the. house during
the consideration of a certain bill. As
the time came near for the delivery of
his speech, which he had prepared and
com-mitted to memory, he lost confi
dence, and there came into his mind an
awful dread of failure to Impress his
hearers when he spoke. This dread grew
upon him so that finallj- he was con
vinced he would fail. This fear was
the direct result of his failing nerves
and the high pressure under which he
had been working for eight months. He
went to the physician a week before
the time he had set for his speech, and.
after five treatments, his selfconfi
dene returned. He made the speech,
which resulted in his gaining an envia
ble reputation as an orator.
The Hypnotist's Power.
There is in the popular mind an im
pression that hypnotism Is a harmful
thing because it puts a person's mind
under the domination of another's
thoughts and ideas. It Is also believed
by many that to submit to hypnotism
Is to weaken one's will power and force
of character. As a matter of fact. It
lias been scientifically proved again and
again that the hypnotist cannot make
the patient commit any act or entertain
any thought contrary to that person's
ideas of morality or principle. Nor
does hypnotism impair the will power.
Hypnotism can be, and sometimes is,
abused by the professional faker and
operator, but. in the hands of a physi
cian, it is merely a cure for ailments
that cannot be reached by other means.
It Is the art of inducing sleep and
then making the patient's mind so re
ceptive that it will retain the healthful,
helpful advice telegraphed to it by the
words and thoughts of the physician
The only opportunity for hypnotism to
Impair the will power arises -vhen a
person makes a habit . of submitting
to the same operator for purposes of
exhibition and freakish tricks. In this
way. in the- course of time, the person
hypnotized does train his mind to a cer
tain -extent to do whatever the hypnotist
suggests. But in all the history of the
art there are only two authentic cases
where the hvpnotMs succeeded In using
the persons hypnotized for criminal pur
poses, in both cases, tne persons nau
made a habit of submitting to hypnot
ism by one operator for more than two

generally regarded as impossible to

Editor El Paso Herald:
If the Mexican labor unions think
their slogan; iMexico for the Mexi
cans," is good, why are there upwards
of 35.0&0 Mexicans working in the
United States, nearly 35 to one Amer

The council passed the age limit ordi

FAST AUTO DRITIXG.
Editor El Paso Herald:
Apropos of the auto wreck on the
county road, it seems strange that this
criminal fast running cannot be stop
ped. The driver should be debarred
from acting as driver for six months
when convicted of fast running, and
the owner of the auto, if driving him
self, should be fined and debarred from
driving. Valley Rancher.

The strikers declared Sunday they will

Representatives of at least two Lon

week studying the situation. Several
magazine writers are also in the field.
Neither capital nor labor has any hesi
tancy in admitting that the defeat of
either side will be a body blow.
It is stated that none of the leading
theaters will close as a result of the
sympathetic strike. Some stage hands
will quit but arrangements have been
mado to fill their places.
3Iayor Is Firm.
The firm stand taken by mayor Rey
burn in upholding the police has had
much to do with keeping down the law
lessness. Orders have been obeyed Im
plicitly and with alacrity. The police
have maintained throughout thf oitx- 7
j stations with 50 or more police at each
mm suiiicient automobiles to carry
them to the scene of disorder in any
part of the city or its 650 miles of trol

Thus before a disturbance has time to
grow to the proportions of a riot men
are on the spene to break it up. .
That the United States government
does not Intend to take any chances of
having its property interfered with by
unruly mobs was made evident today
when orders were received at Fort Du

EN-JOY GOOD PROGRAM
One of the most successful programs
in several weeks was given Saturday
night at the meeting- of th v Ar n
forum. F. H. Blighton. a newspaperman
formerly connected w'ith the Philadel-
phla North American staff, spoke on
tne work of news gathering. He gave
a history of the evolution of the "news
service" system, from Its origination in
Germany to its present compass in the
United States today.
Secretary C. G. Titus gave his talk
'Breaks That Cost." which deals with
the personal side of a man's life Dr
C. T. Race spoke on "From Stone to
Man," a, d$ep study of evolution, illus
trated withNmarts. Next week a debate

A GOOD IDEA.
From Deming (N. M.) Graphic.
The Las Cruces chamber of commerce
is sending Its secretary throughout the
country advertising Mesilla vallev pro

TAFT ACTED WISELY.
From Columbus (N. M.) News.
Alfred Lansing Sharpe was appointed
by president Tcft to succeed himself
as collector of customs at Paso del
Norte (El Paso), Texas, and having
committed himself well during his four
years of service in the customs depart
tmenj, his reappointment Is rejoiced by
his friends and the public. While we
should liked to have seen a New Mex
ico man appointed to the office (for
it Is a New Mexico jo"b), yet we are
perfectly welling to admit that there
was not a cleaner man in the field, and.
all things being considered, president
Taft acted very wisely.
