cars and nothing but mud streets. Now we have 35 miles of electric line
and over 20 miles of paved streets. Why shouldn't the population have in

Ten years ago El Paso had but one building over three stones high; that was
the Sheldon hotel. Look at us now. We have a great past behind us but a greater
future before us.

The booze fighter gets it on every hand. Now the New York state supreme

Burning the midnight oil over a game of cards or a stein of beer never made
any man a millionaire, a statesman or a scholar.
Even Albuqueraue is waking up to the fact that she has a lot to gain in
copying from El Paso. Since the census cut Albuquerque to less than 15,000, she
has ceased to call herself a rival to El Paso. El Paso ceased to consider Albu
querque a rival long before she ever though of doing such a thing, but El Paso is
glad te extend best wishes to Albuquerque and all her other little neighbors on
their progress in any line of municipal endeavor, and we are all glad to see the
Duke City people getting ready to put down paved streets. Albuquerque is no
doubt a nice, energetic little city, full of nice people, and El Paso is glad that she
is in our yard.

Did Wall Street Do It ?
THE trouble in Mexico had no appreciable effect upon the New York stock
market, although it caused some flurry for a time. The quick action of
tie federal government, however, appears to .have demonstrated to the
satisfaction of the men holding Mexican securities that there was no danger.
IDown in Mexico it has been strongly hinted and is now openly stated by
president Diaz, that much of the financial backing of the insurrectos came from
Wall street, with a view to beating down the price of many Mexican stocks and
buying them while they were low. Many natives and foreigners in Mexico be
lieve this strongly. They say the operators in Wall street knew that the revolu
tion would be crushed and that there would therefore be no real danger to their
securities, bat by provoking a considerable disturbance for a few days, they might
frighten many holders of stock and buy at, a small figure what would soon cer
tainly go back to the price commanded before the trouble.
Such a thing might easily have been accomplished if the holders of stock
Itad only been scary enough, but it is almost inconceivable that financiers would
attempt such a thing. .Still, you never can telL The Globe-Democrat's special New
York market review, touching on the Mexican situation says:
"Perhaps the greatest show of interest last week was evoked by the insur
rectionary proceedings in Mexico. Probably it was taken generally for granted
that a revolution during the life of president Diaz could not be of more than brief
duration, nor prove extensively disturbing. At the same time a glimpse of the
' undercurrent of financial opinion was afforded by the turn of Mexican affairs.
"Not only are foreign investments in Mexico considerable, but ours are even
greater. The insurgent uprising, whatever it amounted to, came when a good
many signs were presented of more or less world-wide tension of capital and
credits, despite the phenomena of comparatively cheap funds for collateral security.
"The feeling of relief which was evident toward the week end in Wall street
as a result of the reassuring information about the assertion of law and order in
Mexico was particularly significant. While the holding of speculative stocks may
be remarkably concentrated, it is, nevertheless, financed with borrowed money,
and any such strain is might be thrown on the money market by a promising
revolution in tie republic to the south of us could easily have disagreeable con
sequences. This is all the more true because so many of the suspected speculative
holders of stocks are representative of interests which usually furnish the buyers
in periods of sudden and pronounced stock market weakness." A

" 'Dear Little Girl The first time
After Fifteen Years.
By D. Muir.
THE man who stood hesitating on
the threshold of the house in
Clarence avenue looked to the
full his 45 years. He wore a brown
beard streaked with grey, and round
his eyes lay the network of fine lines
so common with those who lead a
strenuous life in the open.
Edward Dunbar was a strong man, a
man who hardly knew what fear was,
yet at the moment his knees were trem7
bling, and the beating of his heart
seemed to him to drown the roar of
Truly he' had some cause for emotion.
Katie Elwynne had remained true to
him for 13 years. He had spent the
long Interval, cattle farming in New
Zealand, amassing slowly and painful
ly the small fortune which was to en
able him to marry and settle down in
London. Katie had. continued hpr pro
fession of nursing.
But the separation was over at last
Edward had arrived in London less
than an hour ago, and now he was ac
tually on the doorstep of Katie's house
Timidly he rang the bell.
It was some minutes before his sum
mers was answered.
The door opened so quietiy mat ,nc j
heard no sound. He merely had an in- j
stinctive feeling that someone was
near him. He swung round, and look- j
ed not into Katie's eyes, but into those I
of a frail-looking silver-haired lady
oinH in a lavender teaeown. 5
Edward could not, at first, find words
to explain his errand. Surprise and
disappointment that it was not Katie
after all were mingled with keen pleas
ure in the delightful picture the little
He managed to stammer at last:
"I'm afraid I have made that there
is some mistake! I thought Miss El
wvnne lived here."
The little lady smiled, and her smile
moved him strangely. It made him feel
suddenly young again.
"There is no mistake," she said.
"Miss Elwynne your Miss Elwynne
is away from home. If you'll come in
I will explain. $ am her aunt, and my
name is also Elwynne. I have been
keeping house for Katie for some
Katie away from home! This was
the day they had talked of in each let
ter, the day which had never been out
of their minds for 15 years, and now
that it had come Katie was not here.
Edward Dunbar was conscious of a
keen spasm of anger, the first he had
ever experienced against his fiancee.
Dunbar followed her into the tiny
drawingroom. Everything was arrang
ed exactly as he remembered it
His hostess made him sit down be
fore the fire while she prepared the
tea in Katie's delicate eggshell china
cups. , '
Presently she drew her chair opposite
his. "It must-be a very great disap
pointment to you, Mr. Dunbar, that
Katie is not here to greet you. An old
woman like me is indeed a poor sub
stute. And Katie has left me in a very
difficult position. I do not know how
to explain to you her reasons for run
"Running away! Katie has run
away from me. Please tell me every
thing," he said. "Katie has jrrown tired
of waiting for me. She has seen some
one else she likes better a younger
"Ah, no!" said Miss Elwynne sharp
ly. "Not that! You must sit down
again while I try to tell you."
Edward obeyed her, but with a sigh
"You see, Katie has always been so
sensitive. Fifteen years are more to a
woman than to a man. She can less af
ford to lose them. Katie, too, has
worked vers' hard. You know what a
nurse's life is? She thinks the years
have changed her so terribly that you
that you will hardly be able to care
for her quite in the old way. She was
afraid to meet you until you were pre
pared for this. She wants you to un
derstand that you are not coming back
to the lighthearted .girl you left "
"As if I wanted to!" Edward broke
in. "Miss Elwynne, you must make
hr understand. You must write to her
at once; or, better still, give me her
address, and jL will follow her. I have
come home hoping to find a comrade,
a helper; not a girl wife. I am a mid
dleaged man myself. Did she imagine
that she alone had grown older that
I should have stood still?"
that I met you was to the Fireman s
ball. You was waltzing with a switch
man, and as you swung around the cor
ner of the room in which I was sitting,
I saw, or thought I saw, a look of ,ado
ration in them violet eyes of yours.
Dearest, I am not a switchma'n. I am
a druggist and a druggist has no fu
ture worth speaking of. But I want
you, I want you. You must be mine.
Now, George, how would you answer a
letter like that?''
"I never figured on being a drug
gist's bride," replied the Head Barber,
"so I ain't quite in a position to an
swer you. What was some of the other
letters you got?"
"I ain't got the heart nor-the nerve
to tell your" said the Manicure Lady.
"But I know I ain't the only one. Take
poor brother Wilfred, for instance,
with all the mass of correspondence

Daily Short Story
Despite his eagerness to regain his
bride, however, Edward Dunbar found
himself still in .the chair before the
cosy fire Vhen darkness fell, some
He formed the habit of coming to the
house every afternoon for news of
The first interruption came one after
noon In the shape of a telegram for
Miss Elwynne. She seemed a little
flurried as she came back from the
front door with the orange envelope
in her hand! ' .
"I have had a message from a friend
who is seriously ill. She wants me to
go to her at once. I'm afraid I may
have to stay some days. -Perhaps we
had- better let Katie know. In any
case, I must leave you now, as there
is no time to lose."
She must have seen her companion's
regretful glance towards the two empty
chairs at the fire.
"Why not remain here a little longer,
and have a look at my books?" she
suggested. "Yqu can close the front
door when you go. It is self-locking.
I shall take the keys with me. I may
be able to return tonight, possibly not
for a- day or two."
With one of her curiously meaning
smiles she was gone.
Edward settled Jiimself gratefully in
one of the keep chairs, not sorry to
accept the hospitality offered. He
saw that this was an opportunity for
fulfilling a task which had been loom
ing before him for some days. 'It was
time, he told himself, to review his po
sition. Did he, or did he not desire to meet
Katie nfow? "Was he as anxious to
marrj- her as he had been on the day
of his homecoming? He had been
acutely conscious during those restful
hours in her drawingroom of the gulf
that lay between the Edward Dunbar
of .15 years ago and the Edward Dun
bar of today. "Would he, he wondered,
be able to "live up to" Katie?
He must have slept for some hours.
"When he awoke the room was quite
dark. Only, a few red cinders still
glowed in the grate.
He rose, and found that his limbs
There was a sudden sound in the
hall. Surely a door had opened and
closed again. Then he saw, that the
light had been turned, on outside the
He flung open the door, and found
himself act to face with Katie her
self. "Oh!" she gasped. "I never thought
ypu would still be "
She stopped, and drew in her breath
He drew her into the room and
switched on the lights.
She was in nurse's uniform, just as
he had always pictured her. The brown
hair showed threads of gray here and
there 'under the closefltting bonnet.
She had taken off her cloak, and the
lines of her figure were as perfect as
ever. Only the eyes seemed changed.
There were lines round them and
about the mouth. Somehow they did
not seem like Katie's eyes. They re
minded him of
Yes, thes were Miss Elwynne's eyes.
The whole face seemed to him to be no
longer Katie's. And Miss Elwynne's
existence seemed also to lose its actu
ality. Katie's presence had made her
aunt a mere ghostlike memory.
"Kalte, tell me what it all means?
"Who are you? "Who is the little lady
I have been calling your aunt?", '
The woman smiled at him, and1 then
in a flash, he knew. There was no
Miss Elwynne senior. It had been
Katie all the time. But Katie w",th
white hair. Katie with wrinkles?
He looked so bewildered that Katie
laughed outright but when she spoke,
her voice, though no longer the lisping,
subdued voice of her supposed aunt,
was a little uncertain.
"Are you going to forgive me, Ed
ward, for the trick I've played on you?
Oh, I have been so afraid! It was a
shameless thing to do, and yet dearest,
don't you think It has been worth while
for both of us?"
Edward came close to her, and took
her hands in his.
"I haven't a notion why you did it,
but it has been worth while, as you
say. It has given me back ray Katie,
and 1 have gained a new friend into the
bargain, though -why you thought it
Greatest Legislative Plant In
The World at Washington Frederic
Has Cost More Than $30,000,000 and Still Is Incomplete. zrmrr
"4T HEN congress meets next r
WW week it will find that dur-
ing its vacation much has
heen done toward perfecting condi
tions in the capitol group of buildings,
which group consists of the capitol,
the library of congress, and the two
office buildings. The new heating
and lighting system has been com
pleted and the new book-stack in the
library has been opened. In addi
tion to this there have been a num
ber of rooms fitted up in the office
buildings which heretofore have been
unfinished and unused.
The work that has been done by
superintendent Elliott "Woods and his
assistants has given the United States
the most complete Igislative plant in
the world. From the beginning the
capitol, exclusive of repairs, has cost
$-15,000,000. The library has cost7,
000,000. and the other buildings carry
the total cost of the group consider
ably above 30,000,000. The plant of
the British parliament cost only half
as much, and those of the German
reichtag and the French chamber of
deputies cost even less than the Brit
ish parliament plant.
Is Still Incomplete.
But there still remains much to be
done If the plant of congress is to be
complete. "When the new senate and
house wings were built, the architects
of 'the capitol planned that at some
future date the central east front
should be made to conform with the
lines of the two wings. This would
add immeasurably to the beauty and
magnificence of the east front and
would also add to the available space
In the capitol.
The chambers of the two houses
have no direct communication with
the outside air, making the problem
of ventilation a difficult one. Summer
heat Is not conducive t good legis
lation. The members a.re naturally
more concerned about peeping cool
than they are about the boresome
work of scrutinizing every line of pro
posed , legislation. It is now 'thought
feasible to establish an air-cooling
plant for" keeping the capitol cool in
summer, just as they have a heating
plant for keeping it warm in winter.
Superintendent "Woods, who Is a past
master in the art of planning archi
tectural and engineering conditions,
is already engage'd in planning the
details of such a system. The same
power plant that furnishes heat in
winter would furnish the cold air in
summer. The British parliament has

a step further and made it an air

The new heating and lighting plant
for the public buildings on Capitol
Hill is the most remarkable plant of
its kind in the world. It can furnish
8,000 kilowatts .of electric power and
heat enough, to warm the capitol, the
library; the office buildings, and the
proposed new supreme court building.
There are in it four large turbine gen
erators and 16 big bc-Iers. The water
for these boilers Is furnished through
an independent pumping plant built
in the Potomac river,, and operated by
electridity from the power station.
There are three big centrifugal pumps,
located several feet below extreme
low-water mark, which can deliver
1.500,000 gallons- of water an hour. A
special sewer leads from the power
plant, to the river aid. a. -36-inch pipe
carries the water from the river to the
boilers. Between the power plant and
the various huildings Is a big conduit
