THE only Arizona, counties that went straiguu uuuu x
ana Coconino (Flagstaff). Navajo was equally divided, while Yavapai
(Prescott) was five to one Democratic The Democrats will frame the con
stitution of Arizona and they will insert the initiative, referendum, and L recall
provisions in radical form. The people of the territory, Democrats included, will
find, however, in future that these measures are not the cure-alls that their most
ardent advocates proclaim them to be. They are the fad right now, but it is
absurd to try to make a partisan political issue out of them inasmuch as the
Republican states of the west are as wild over them as the Democratic states.
The direct vote for United -States senator is a good thing, and some such plan
ought to be adopted in the national institution in lieu of the present scheme of
election by the state legislatures. This remark points what The Herald has had to
say about the undesirability of the referendum as a rule In state affairs; when
the Question is called on a concrete, limited, specific matter, the, people can inform
themselves and act intelligently, but the masses of the -people are not qualified to
pass intelligently upon the wisdom or unwisdom of a complicated piece of legisla
tion. . .
If we cannot trust our responsible elected representatives m legislative bodies
our system of government is a failure. The disease has been incorrectly diagnosed
and the remedy prescribed is consequently inappropriate.
A compulsory education law requiring at least three months schooling ior
every boy and girl of school age would be a good law for Texas, if properly en
forced. El PasCs low school enrolment proportional to the school population is a
matter of serious concern. Something is surely wrong when the number of
children out of school in a city of this size runs into the thousands.

The small Texas newspapers are carrying on a splendid campaign for cleaner
end more beautiful towns. -To better the conditions of living for the masses of
the people is really the prime object of existence, and the Texas press is loyally
fulfilling its mission in this respect
Seldom have political prophets been more unfortunate in their predictions
than were the Republicans of Arizona the night before the election. The surprise
to the Republicans was so startling that it will undoubted put the party on its
mettle so that the next trial of strength will not be merely a procession "Demo
crats in carriages."
Theodore Roosevelt's sensational act with regard to senator Lorimer at the
Hamilton club banquet was neither admirable nor tactful. A guest who questions
his host's choice of other guests and makes his acceptance conditional upon the dis
barring of some of the-host's intimate friends is abusing the hospitality of his
host. One wonders how often CoL Roosevelt would dine in any company if he
set out to question every man's personal record and disbar those open to ques
tion. CoL Roosevelt might have expressed his views about Lorimer in some
ether way without violating the ordinary rules of social usage by bringing his
personal reeling into play to break up a dinner party.
The Logical Central Exposition
THE El Paso fair this year will be by far the best display of the kind ever
given in the Great Southwest. El Paso is the logical point for the great
annual gathering of people and display of products of the region.
The smaller fairs in other cities ana towns are worthy of every possible sup
rt - through a system of cooperation it wouia not be aifficult to have a
large proportion of the exhibits at these fairs shipped to El Paso for the general
exposition at the beginning of winter.
The advertisng value to any community of having a display here is ten times
as great as it would be anywhere else.
The" Boy, Scent movement ought to take hold vigorously in El Paso. The
training is military and out of doors, without rigid formality, but practical and
fua of interest. There is room in the Boy Scouts for young boys as well as boys
appro-ching manhood. It is a wise movement to direct the activities of growing
youngsters in such a way as to make them more serviceable to the community
and to themselves.. "

-How a Woman Robs a Sister Woman of Her Love Without the
THE most curious of all of the phe
nomena exhibited by woman's
conscience, however, is shown in
the way a woman will rob another
woman of the affections of her hus
band or sweetheart.
Pratlcally all women are love pi
rates, and "never a law of God or
man rules north" of the heart line
This is the more remarkable because
"women place an overvaluation on af
fection. Love Isn't, to them, a frill on
the petticoat of life, as it Is to men.
It's the whole garment. It isn't a lux
ury without which one can do very
comfortably, thank you, if one has to.
It is an absolute necessity, without
which one hNingers and thirsts, and
shivers with the cold.
Yet the woman who wouldn't rob her
sister woman of a hairpin will steal
from tier the love that is the very jewel
of her existence.
And half the time she Is a lady bur
glar, who burgles for the mere excite
ment of the thing, and doesn't want
the heart that she purloins.
"All is fair in love and war," says
the unethical old proverb, and as long
as a woman isunmarried, some jus
tification can be offered frr hr at
tempting to bring down with ncr dow
and Bpcr any man that she fancies,
who is outside of the matrimonial fold.
She may know that she is poaching
on some other woman's preserves; but
she can, at q east, salve her conscience
with the thought that the man, who
can so easily be lured into putting his
head in another womans' halter, was
merely held by a pack thread that he
was certain to have broken sooner or
Bull Fight Human to It.
Compared Tt-ith stealing from some
helpless youn girl the love that was
ner one treasure, roDDing a oanK is a
virtuous employment, and a bull fight
a humane sp6rt; yet we see the thing
continuallj' done by young women who
believe themselves to be leading the
higher life, and who are charter mem
bers of the Socity for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals.
Who has not seen some beatlful,
gay, city girl come into a country com
munity for a few months in the sum
mer and turn all of the jural swains
heads and break up half a dozen love
affairs? Who has not seen some clever
woman, skilled In all of the subtleties
of flattery and cajoler, take away the
man on whom her heart was set from
some plain, dull -woman, whose only
talent twas a talent for loving? x
And did the woman who was thu?
torturing another woman suffer ag
onies of remorse? Did her conscience
keep her awake at night whispering in
a still small voice that she was doin'g
a fellow woman a deadly wrong? Far
(By Bene JIalzeroy.)
I HAD left the train at Plaqueville
and wafe now walking across the
vineyards. I walked slowly through
this country where I knew almost ev
ery house, although I had not been
here since I was a child. I was now
on my way to Metz to take lunch with
two old relations, who had not had the
strength to tear themselves loose from
their beloved country, even when it fell
into the hands of the hated enemy.
I had deliberately cross-ed the line
marked by the black and white sign
posts that surround the plain of Ban-Saint-Martin.
I remembered the trag
ical days of the siege when regiments
were camping here in the mud, dis
couraged, forced to remain inactive
against their will by their miserable
commanders, waiting in vain for the
command to try by a supreme effort
to break through the human barrier,
which was drawn around them closer
and closer every month. I saw once
more the esplande and place royal wth
their long dark lines of wagons trans
formed Into ambulances, and the statue
of Marshall Ney with the colors which
Lieut. Chabal tore out of the hands of
a Wcstphallan officer.
In front of me large bodies of troops
came filing out from the Immense bar
racks, squadron after squadron.
Suddenly, I do not know from what
reason, everything went to smash. The
troopers shouted, wheeled about, rush
ed right and left like a flock of sheep
scared by the appeararice of a wolf.
Excited officers, shouted and cursed,
rose in their stirrups, waved their
swords; quartermasters addressed the
troopers, tried to calm them, and to
make them try over again the compli
cated evolution in which they had fail
ed, cuffed them, swore at them and
I was delighted at this unexepected
sight, and only wished I had my camera.
I laughed aloud at the sheepish expres
sion in the faces of these clumsy farm

and clung to the manes of their

Fortunately the man was not a coarse

j We exchanged cards.
Pourparlers were held and seconds
were chosen. Two fellow officers acted
for count Ludwig von Sonnonthal; a
young doctor and a pensioned French
colonel who had lost an arm at Grave
lotte for me.
The duel took place at dawn the next
day in a secluded garden in a suburb
of Metz. We fought with sabers and I
cannot toll you how happy I felt when
our swords crossed. I had already risk

HOSPITALS OF AMERICA
SECOND TO GERMANY'S
TRAINING OF NURSES.
The twelfth annual convention of the
American Hospital association meets In
St. Louis today for a four day session.
Its president is Dr. H. B. Howard of
Boston. In few other branches of pub-
.lic activity has so much progress been
made as in hospital work. Yet there
will be many problems claiming the
attention of the association at this
meeting. One of these unsolved ques
tions is that of extending charity treat
ment to those who need it, and yet pre
vent the undeserving from taking ad
vantage of the kindness of hospital au
thorities. It frequently has been found
that people have paid for treatment
v nen they really were unable to do
so, tecause of their unwillingness to
accept charity. On the other hand,
there are many who assert they are
unable to pay for any portion of their
treatment, while they are, as a matter
of fact, quite able to do so.
A few hospitals have charity work
ers of .their own, whose duty it is to
look up the financial status of poor
patients. Other institutions have used
the Associated Cnarities and similar
organizations for this purpose. In
this way they hope to make it possi
ble to give treatment to all who are
In need of it. Under the old methods
the free wards often were crowded by
those who ought to have been patients,
thus excluding many who had a real
right to the charity treatment.
Some of the progressive hospitals
have adopted the idea of furnishing
semi-private rooms. It is declared that
the gulf between the free ward and the
private room has been so great that
there seemed no way of providing for
those who object to treatment in the
free wards and yet have not the means
to pay for a private room. The semi
private rooms, each accommodating

The DresH With a Train.
When I was a dubante my pride and
glory was to wear a dress with a train.
I iad a white lace dress which was
the joy of my soul, and I would wear it
to a dance, though my mother warned
me that it -would be torn to pieces. .
It was; and as I wept over its torn
flounces I made up my mind never to
wear a long dress again to a dance. A
dress that escapes the floor is necessa
ry, for your own comfortas -well as that
of the other dancers.

Why should she not fight for it?
Centuries of repression; of physical
weakness have left women with but one

Every time Richard called now, the

he went away with a jealous anger

And one evening she, came down in

Three weeks later a small messenger

Leara to Dance Yourself.
At he same time it is not- fair to ask
her to give up dancing simply because
you have never learned to dance your
self. A girl who dances well is always in
great demand, and if your sweetheart
dances well and you do not want other
men to monopolize her, you must learn
to dance your self.

Just a glance of the eye, a half smile,
or even a conscious look will do it. If
you don't know any men, dance with
other girls, but don't allow strange
men the privilego of putting their

with you. And be very careful about
the places you go to when you dance.
