Schools As Producing Industries
ILLUSTRATING the value In dollars ana cents to the community of first class
schools, the experience of the new El Paso School for Girls is interesting.
Though but little work has been done to enrol pupils, already three families
from out of town have -declared their intention to move to El Paso in order to place
their daughters in the school. The school has a boarding department, but in these
three cases at least, the parents will make their home here during the winter
in order to give their children the advantages of city schoools of high standard,
and at the same time the advantages of home training.
This fact emphasizes the importance of giving the educational institutions of
the city strong financial cooperation, because it pays in dollars and cents to build
them up, just as if they were factories or other important business enterprises
Good schools in the city operating with sufficient capital and kept np to a high
standard are constantly and increasingly producers of wealth for the community.
The income is largely from outside the city, or else it represents money that would
be sent away to schools in other cities If It were not for the home advantages.
The El Paso School for Girls has been chartered. The stockholders met today
and elected a board of directors composed of 11 of the best known business men
and professional men in El Paso. There will also be a board of women which
will act in an advisory capacity. The teaching corpses composed of women of
thorough training and experience in schools of the highest type, specialists in
their various branches and chosen with special care for their fitness in caring
for the intellectual and physical needs of young girls. There is no reason why
the school should not receive strong patronage from the people of the Great South
west, for it will be in position to offer the advantages of the best eastern, north
ern, and coast schools with the added advantage of location nearer home in an
ideal climate for winter residence, outdoor
The Cloudcroft Chautauqua is promoted and supported as an institution for
the general service of the southwestern people, and with'nc idea of profit making.
The expenses axe paid by public spirited citizens of Cloudcroft and El Paso, and a
general invitation is issued- This should be the beginning of an endless series of
Chautauqua meetings with constantly increasing interest
Work That Saves Public Money
THE quarterly report of the Roman's Charity association shows relief ex
tended In hundreds df cases and, as always, a most economical use of the
funds entrusted to the association. The work of the women of the Charity
is directed especially to the relief of sick or destitute women and children, but
deserving cases of any kind are given prompt and effective aid.
The Woman's Charity association from the beginning of its work has been
noted for efficiency; there is no red tape about its activities, but it goes "home
to the instant need of things." The value of its service in the community is in
estimable and it deserves the most generous support
It was through its auspices that the baby life saving work was inaugurated,
and this branch, with its school for mothers, the baby clinic, the district visiting
by trained members, and the children's club for personal and civic cleanliness,
has absolutely proved its right to perpetual existence and adequate support from
the public treasuries of city and county as well as from private charity.
Public money could not be better spent than in helping to maintain -this work
of tangible service and quick results. To save life and to avert plague and pes
tilence and disease and weakness are proper functions of government, and the
methods of .the Woman's Charity and its auxiliaries are a most economical and
effectual way to promote the welfare of the people.
The Cloudcroft Chautauqua opens next Monday, with a varied and attractive
program. The topics vill an be of popular educational value for both young and
old, and the idea of holding the sessions out in the open amid the -trees and flowers
and birds and squirrels ought to appeal by its novelty to many who will attend
from El Paso and New Mexico. Let all join to make the first Cloudcroft Chau
tauqua a success. As always in such matters, a few are bearing the burdens of
expense and organization, and the least the general public can do is to encourage
the movement with personal presence.
Regulation, Not Prohibition
THE national association of brewers sees signs of a great change of sentiment
regarding prohibition. The vigilance committee of the brewers reports that
the tendency is for dry districts to go wet, and for sentiment in favor of
state prohibition laws to die out As for state prohibition laws or constitutional
amendments for statewide prohibition, The Herald does not favor them and never
has favored them. Tney give rise to a destructive sentiment of antagonism to
law and-they create conditions of local disorder and law violation that the state
governmental organization is usually unable to correct. Moreover the people of
this country are not prepared to submit gracefully to restrictive laws of that sort,
and are not likely to be for a long time to come. The proportion of liquor con
sumers is too large as compared with those "who would prohibit the use of liquors,
to make the enforcement of such laws practical as a consistent policy of govern
ment Strict regulation of the liquor traffic, limiting the number of saloons according
to population, strict enforcement of the laws, high license, 'rigid banishment of
associated vices in connection with saloons, the permanent disbarment or black
listing of individuals who habitually violate the liquor laws, the extension of local
option to smaller districts than counties and especially to precincts in cities, the
treatment of drunkenness as a disease not a crime, the swift and heavy punish
ment of liquor dealers who aid in violating the laws or in debauching the young,
these are the outlines of a policy better calculated to bring about improved condi
tions than the victory of the more radical reformers.
The El Paso Herald's mining news department is the only comprehensive daily
summary of general southwestern mining development published anywhere. This
department of The Herald Is made the special concern of one member of the staff,
and not only is the news fresh and authoritative but it also covers a wide field in
addition to what develops locally. No other newspaper anywhere makes the ef

And in spite of the ironical smiles of
the guests on the hotel plaza, who were
amused at the sight of his anger, Maitre
Berdigeaux, the host of "The Crowned
Ox," drove the unfortunate suitor away
with his napkin. (
Had it been any other man than the
charming Annette's father who had
treated him like this, Rene Belliard
1 would at least have broken two or three
of his ribs, but he thought of the future
and stammered: "But we love each oth

"Let Annette come and tell me that

"It is all right, Maitre Berdigeaux."
he said, "I am going now, but I will not

He walked off slowly, followed with
sympathetic glances by two English

guests were siding with the enemy,
went back to his kitchen, and a few
moments later there came the sound
of blows and the sobbing of a woman,
telling the guests of a prolonged discus
sion of the marriage question.
Although having thus asserted his pa
ternal authority, the host of "The
Crowned Ox" felt rather uneasy at heart,
and regretted having been so rough
on Belliard. Not that he thought for a
moment of accepting him as soninlaw,
but he remembered how difficult it
would be now, at the very height of the
5 season, to get a man as faithful and
reliable as his former waiter. Belliard
was as good as a whole staff of wait

for a few thousand francs, had never
even suspected its existence, but a few
months later the -echo was discovered,
and the sotyr of its wonderful qualities
told to half amillIon readers in a Paris
newspaper, with the result that tourists
came from all parts of the country and
inside of three years "The Crowned
Ox" was the most prosperous hotel on
all the coast between Tregannec and
Plouvilio, and Martre Berdigeaux had
been forced to add two stories to the
main building and build a big garage.
Now the famous echo was not quite
as natural as people thought, and this
scoundrel Belliard knew the secret of It.
He alone, besides Berdigeaux and An
nette knew how it was made to repeat
een words of five or six syllables in
an almost heavenly voice, and the very
next day the director of the Paris opera
was coming down to hear it. The
thought of a scandal made Berdigeaux
turn pale and actually kept him awake
At iten the next forenoon three auto
mobiles from Lannion brought the great
man and a crowd of friends and beau
tiful ladles. As soon as they had had
refreshments they asked to hear the
famous talking stone.
"A rock that has a million in its
throat," said the director, and slapped
Berdigeaux on (the back.
Maitre Berdigeaux led on the caravan
as the only guide and after half an
hour's walk along rocky paths and
through shady woods the party came to
a smali beach walled in by two perpen
dicular rocks, and at the end of this
narrow passage was seen the famous
talking stone arising from the sea.
Maitre Berdigeaux was pale with
fright, for he had just discovered on
the top of the rock the familiar sil
houetta of Belliard. but his voice was
quite firm as he shouted thef familiar
"Echo, are you there?"
"Yes, I am here," came the surpris
ing answer in a beautiful sonorous,
voice. "I am here Maitre Berdigeaux,
to tell you that I am tired of playing
echo for three years."
A roar of laughter greeted, these
-words and all the tourists stared at Ber
digeaux, who was crestfallen with grief
and red with indignation.
Suddenly the voice sang the Song of
Fontunio as no one ever heard It sung
before. Silence fell upon the merry
crowd and -when the voice was over the
director cried in an ecstacy of enthusi
asm: "I engage you on the spot, my boy!
Five thousand francg a month to start
on. Is that enough?"
"That's a word," cried Belliard.
The new singer created a sensation
at the opera and soon made a fortune.

of these 38,000.000 inhabt-
tants is the vassal subject of an abso
lute monarch who is unwilling to admit
that they have any rights whatever
except such as he is .pleased to vouch
safe to them out of his royal grace.
This Is the kingdom of Prussia which
controls and rules the great German
empire, the most powerful state of con
tinental Europe, and the rival of Great
Britain for absolute supremacy among
the nations of the world.
The Great Kaiser.
William II, the reigning king of Prus
sia, is one of the most remarkable men
now living In the world. Outsiders gen
erally, and Americans especially ,know
him best as the German emperor. It
Is in that capacity that he appears when
discusslngr problems of international
politics. But it Is as the king of Prus
sia that he rules his people most ef
fectively. It is as the king of Prussia
that he claims to be the representative
and vicar of God. A cartoonist in Prus
sia dares not lampoon the German em
peror, because he knows he would be
punished for the crime of lese majeste
against the Prussian king. A Bavarian
newspaper may caricature the kaiser in
perfect safety- because in the kingdom
of Bavaria the king of Prussia is not
sovereign, although Bavaria is a part
of the German empire. As a matter
of fact Bavarian newspapers do most
mercilessly lampoon the august emper
or, and all that -the imperial house
hold can do is to forbid officers to buy
the paper. This semingly trifling cir
cumstance Illustrates the puzzling fact
that while Prussia dominates and rules
the German nation, the non-Prussian
German states still retain a great deal
of their politicial independence, as well
as their separate institutions and their
peculiar local customs.
But since the union in 1871 Prussia
has been able to stamp out many of the
ancient and classic German traditions,
and to substitute for them the distinc
tive Prussian ideals. The old Germany
'the Germany of poets and philoso
phers, of pamphleteers and professors,
of students and singers is passing
away. The Germany of the popular
imagination of a half century ago is
now to be found in Austria more than
in the German empire. Germany has
The House of Hohenzollern.
The kaiser is fond of referring to the
prospective world supremacy of his em
pire as "the mastery of the Hohenzol
lern world power." In his eyes, at
least, Prussia is not a nation it Is
nothing more than the vassal appanage
of the Hohenzollern family. The Hoh
enzollerns trace their origin to count
Thassilo of Zollern, one of the gener
als of Charlemagne. His successor,
count Frederick I, built the castle of
Hohenzollern, near the Danube, In the
year 980. Count Frederick III of this
line -was made a prince of the Holy Ro
man empire in 1273 and became the
Burggrave of Nuremberg. His grent
grandson, Frederick "VT, was given the
province of Brandenburg by the kaiser
Sigmund in 1415, and two years later
obtained the rank of elector of Bran
denburg. Prussia's Conversion.
While the Hohenzollern family was
making Its way upward from the pos
session of an insignificant countv to
the control of the electorate of Bran
denburg, Prussia was being converted
from savagery and heathenism by the
evangel of the sworu to the religion
of the Gentle Nazarene. Prussia was
a country comprising the great plain
sloping from the Sileslan mountains to
the Baltic sea, on both s!de of the
River Vistula, inhibited by a mled
breed of Goths, Slavs and Letts, semi
savage in their domestic life and whol
ly savage in their enmity to all out
siders, and especially to the Christian
At about tli6Meginning of the 13th
century a Pomeranian monk establish
ed an etenslve chain of missions in the
country, but the heathens raged and
put the Christian converts to death.
Rome then gave its sanction to the
plan of conversion by coercion, iind
after some failures, the task of Christ
ianizing Prussia was assigned to the
Order of Teutonic Knights. This or
der had been Instituted for the purpose
of succoring German pilgrims in Pal
estine, but now that crusading had
become unpopular they were, In the
year 1239, authorized by the pope to
Invade ' and convert Prussia. For a
half century the Teutonic Knights con
ducted a remorseless war against "the
comparatively defenseless Prussians.
They conquered the country and ruled
it henceforth, but long after Columbus
discovered America many Prussian peo
ple were at heart still heathens, and
never did they give their hearts to
Creation of the Kins:.
A century after the head of the Hoh
enzollern family became elector of
Brandenburg, the Teutonic Knights in
15J.1 elcted the Margrave Albert, a
younser son of the Hohenzollern fam
ily, to the post of grand master of the
order. True to the Instincts of his an
cestors, as" well as of his descendants,
the Margrave Albert gave the moribund
knightly order its death blow and con
stituted himself the hereditary prince
of Prussia. The male line of Albert
soon died out and the province of Prus
sia passed to the elder Hohenzollern
line of the electors of Brandenburg.
When John Sigismund, elector of Bran
denburg, espoused the cause of Protest
antism, acquired new territory in cen
tral Germany and united Brandenburg
and Prussia Into a duchy, he laid the
broad foundations for the future great
ness of his family. That was in 1618.
The storm of the Thirty Years War was
even then about to break, and during
that -long struggle the Hohenzollern
duchy was more prominent as a suffer
er than as an active participant. The
elector George William, who died in
1640, lefit to his successor a barren des
ert -inhabited by a few miserable starve
lings who had in some manner escaped
the devastation of that terrible war.
That successor was Frederick William,
who ruled for 4S years and who is
known in history as the "Great Elector."
He was the grandfather of modern Ger
many. The Great Elector.
The great elector established the first
standing army in central Europe. He
gained complete sovereignty over Prus-
sia, and consolidated it with Branden
burg and his other minor possessions
In a permanent ainion. He forced the
neighboring states of France, HoHand
and Sweden to respect his sovereignty
and to regard the boundaries of his
governmental estate. When he died in
168S hegjeft to his son a country hav
ing a million and a half people, a great
deal of treasure, and a standing army
of 38,000 well drilled soldiers.
"-"" January xa. nwi,
On January IS, 1701, the son of the
great elector assumed the kingly crown
as Frederick i, first king of Prussia
He made few efforts to add to the ter
ritory or prestige of his crown, but his
j successor, Frederick William I, acquired
great wealth, purchased much territory
and added part of Pomerania to' the
kingdom. The third king of Prussia
came to the throne in 1740. He was
Frederick II, usually called Frederick
the Great. He fornd a state of less
than 50,000 square miles with a popula
tion of two and a half million, and when
he died 46 years later, he left Prussia
having 75,000 square miles and a popu
lation of nearly six million people. His
conquests were continued by Ms son,

17S6 to 1797, and who brought Prussia
up to an area of 100,000 square miles
and to a population of mare than nine
Frederick William in came to the
throne in 1797. Nine years later his
kingdom was laid waste by Napoleon,
and a half ot his territory and popula
tion was tafc-en. After the fall of the
Napoleonic empire, the congress of
Vienna restored this loss and added to
Prussia a part of Saxony, the Rhine
land and Swedish Pomerenia, making
of Prussia two separate pieces of ter
ritory aggregating about 107,000 square
In the latter years of the reign of
Frederick William IH, who died in 1840,
and all during the 'reign of Frederick
William IV, from 1S40 to 1861, the Prus
sian kingdom devoted itself to the per
fection of Its army; the training and
education of its young men, both for
war and work; and aimed steadily and
singly at gaining the supremacy of the
