lO The House That Jack Built
J f 1 i '
PRETTY soon the boarding house life begins to pall on Jack and Jill. Cupid's wings take
to drooping and even moult a feather or two under a steady diet of hash and prunes varied
by prunes and hash. Besides, the little sprite is fond of PRIVACY and boarding house
PUBLICITY would make him shrink in his shoes if he wore shoes.
The HOME idea looms up once more before Jack and Jill. But Jack is a good FELLOW
and Jill is a better, so there isn't any bank account just as many GOOD TIMES as can be
picked from the PAY ENVELOPE, followed by an aching VOID which they strive to fill with
visions of the FUTURE HOME.
There is no life like HOME LIFE, where the family is not annoyed by rude table manners, boister
ous, loud talk and disagreeable associations, then'again, ITS MUCH CHEAPER to live 'at home.
We will show you how you can own your own home for less per month than rent.

to mind tlie one great nronlem today
confronting- every community, and that
is child hygiene and the -welfare of
school children. Can children come from

a. school room? Are Tse getting; the best
returns for the amount of money spent
in educating these children? Now the
question -which faces us is: "What can

How to Make the Fat
If you are fat and have difficulty in
breathing- ur walking" or eating and if
you iind that the heat is exhausting- to
you during- the heated term you will
be interested in knowing- that the fa
mous JMarmoIa prescription is now being-
prepared in tablet form and that
one of these little tablets taken after
each meal and at bedtime will reduce
your fat at the rate of from 12 to 15
Ounces per day. These tablets stop fat
from being- made and they assist "thJ
body to throw away the fat already
made in a natural manner. They are
harmless and you will find that their
use will build up your system to a
higher degree of perfection than ever
before. They have perhaps the great
est army of responsible men and wo
men who have written of their effect
iveness than any other prescription
ever written. You need not diet or ex
ercise and you may eat when and what
you will. The food you now eat turns
into fat- The food you eat will make
ziKi fat if you take a Marmola tablet
after the meal; and more than that,
you will so ' strengthen your digestive
organs that you will need no assistance
in a short time even from Marmola
Tablets. Every drug store sells them
or you may white the Marmola com
pany, 737 Farmer Bldg., Detroit, Mich.
A case ot Marmola Tablets costs only

Had Xotliing to Do With Re
fusal to Appoint Kelly,
FoWowing on the heels of the appoint
ment of Henry F. Reynaud as fire mar
shal comes an explanation from mayor
W. F. Robinson thafhe had nothing to
do with the refusal to name Ban Kelly
for the position after he had been pro
posed by the fire commission, and which
action by the council resulted in the
resignation of four of the five mem
bers of the commission, judge Peyton
F. Edwards the fifth member, being
absent from the city at the time.
Mayor Robinson, when asked his
reason for refusing to make the ap
pointment, said: "I did not refuse to
confirm the appointment; the council
did that. The name was proposed., by
the commission and the council de
clined to appoint him."
Asked why he had appointed Reynaud
prior to selecting a new fire commis
sion, the mayor said: "We need a fire
marshal badly now, as badly as we will
ever need him, and, therefore, I made
the appointment. I did this before se
lecting the new commission because I
want to have some time to think 4ver
the names of those whom I shaH ap
point to the commission; it is an Im
portant body and I cannot go out and
pick up men every day. I must think
the matter over, and while it is my in
tention to appoint a new commission, I
cannot say just Avhen it will be done."
ZVothlnp: Atjainst Kelly.
Alderman Walter S. Clayton, referring
to the refusal of the council to appoint
Kelly, said: "We had nothing against
Mr. Kelly's politics, in fact, I myself
did not know what his politics was
until after I had read something of it
in the newspapers. It was the general
understanding of the aldermen that Mr.
Kelly' was an elderly man and, there
fore, would not be able to hold the
"It is required of a fire marshal that
he be on duty at all times and that he
attend all fires, not the day after the
fire, but while it is in progress, and go
right along with the chief. In addition
to this we wanted a man that knew
somethingbf the fire insurance busi
ness. "Mr. Reynaud has been in the insur
ance business ali his life and knows
considerable about fires. While I sug
gested his name at the last meeting of
the city council, he had been suggested
by several insurance men, he had a list,
but I do not remember the names now,
when the matter was. first brought to
the attention of the council and prior
to the time it was presented to the com
mission for its consideration.
Commissioners Surprise Conneilinen.
"We never had any idea that the fire
commission would resign. We supposed
that if the council would not approve
of the selection made by the commis
sion that body would then refer the
matter back to the council with the re
quest that it choose a man for the place.
"The people would eventually hold
the council responsible for the appoint
ment and we, did not feel that Mr. Kelly
was the man for the place."
Did Xot Dscline.
Alderman San Blumenthal declined
to discuss the matter, saying: "No. I
did not decline to appoint Mr. Kelly; see
Mr. Percy McGhee; he made the motion
before the council and can give enough
"I made the motion before the coun
cil that the recommendations of the
fire commission be not carried out,"
said alderman Percy McGhee. "I did
not think Kelly the right man for the
place, principally on account of his
age. I believed then, and still believe,
that we should have a younger and
more active man."
Alderman J. I. Hewitt is not in El I
Paso at the present time and was not
here at the time action was taken by
the city council.
