Four Persians, the first foreigners
other than Mexicans to apply for ad
mission to the United States at the
local immigration office during: the
pa-st six months, were refused admit
tance at the Santa Fe street bridge
The men, all of them almost as dark
as Moors, and all wearing heavy black
mustaches, said that they wanted to
come to El Paso to. make their homes
They had come all the way from Af
ghanistan and had been in Mexico for
some time. They came to Juarez over
the Mexican Central road and immedi
ately sought admittance.
Because they had no visible Beans
of support they were denied the right
to come into this country. One bf
them, taller than the others, spoke
English quite well. He acted as
spokesman for the others.
A Mexican family, aesiring to go to
California, was also denied admittance
on Tuesday because the father was
Immigration has been light for the
past six months, but now and then a
few Mexican laborers come across pre
pared to go to Kansas or California
to work. It is expected that once the
Mexican Central railroad resumes op
eration, there will be a large influx
of men to this Country in search of
employment on section gaiigs and in

Til ask him."
"Warren was putting his pearl studs
in a dress shirt when Helen ran in ex
citedly. "Oh. dear, the Stevens have a box for
the "Ixst Illusion" for tonight! They
want us to come even If we can't get
there until late. Could we?" eagerly.
"Certainly not." frowning at a finger
mark on his shirt front. "Nice time to'
"But the box was just giyen them
this evening they couldn't ask us
"Well, if we dfne with the Dawsons,
we'll spend the evening there. Don't
think I'm going to rush off right after
dinner, do you?"
"No, I suppose not," murmured Helen
reluctantly, as she went back to the
phone to tell Mrs. Stevens they could
A Business Friend.
But Mrs. Stevens insisted that she
would leave a couple of seats at the
box office in case they could come.
"Now hurry up there," called Warren,
as Helen went back to her dressing
room. "Dawson said 7 we don't want
to be late."
Mr. Dawson was a new business
friend of Warren's and -while Helen
and Mrs. Dawson had exchanged calls,
this was their first dinner.
"You're not going to wear a hat?"
demanded Warren as a few moments
later Helen came out drawing on her
"Why, yes, dear: it's only a dinner.
We needn't go so formally, need we?"
"Well, this is one of the places we're
going to right. Take off that hat. I've
"A taxi! Oh, couldn't we have .gone j
in the subwayr'
But Warren did not deign to answer
this. Helen wont back, took of her
hat and threw a light scarf over her
hair. She also changed her shoes for
a pair of evening slippers, which she
had thought too dressy for the subj
i way. But since they were going In a
cab she might as well wear mem. n
was evident Warren wanted her to look
as well as she could.
A moment later the taxi cab was an
nounced. "It's too bad that everything should
come in one night." murmured Helen,
as they drove off. "That was the play
I was so anxious to see the "Lost Il
lusion." and this is the last week."
"Well, it's a darn sight more impor
tant to dine with Dawson than go to
any play. He's pulled off some mighty
big deals latel, and if I can interest
him in our company, it'll mean a whole
lot. While I think of it. he's got a
fine collection of old prints that's his
hobby. He'll probably show them, so
for Heaven's sake try to seem inter
ested. Don't act like you did the other
night when Wilson showed us those
coins. By George you looked bored to
"Why, dear, 1 didn't!" Indignantly
"Only I don't know anything about
coins, and I thought it better to keep
still than to make stupid comments."
"Don't know anything either," ad
mitted Warren, "but I faked it, and
you can too, if you want to."
This did not add to Helen's prospect
of a pleasant evening. It was hard
enough for her to dine with compara
tive strangers, but to feel that she
must try to talk and pretend a knowl
edge of something about which she
knew nothing always terrified her

the boy at the switchboard.
They're 'ot In."
"Mr. Dawson is not in sir," the boy
informed them a moment later
"Announce us to Mrs. Dawson, then,"
said Warren, curtly.
Another moment's wait and then the
boy said, stolidly.
"Mr. and Mrs. Dawson have both
"Gone out?" murmured Helen, in
"Of course not," scoffed Warren
"That's a mistake. Now you get this
thing right,' severely to the boy. "I
want you to announce Mr. and Mrs.
Curtis to Mr. Dawson's apartment."
"Well, I had their maid on the wire,"
sullenly. "She says they're gone out
to dinner. I'll ring her back, you can
talk to her yourself."
Warren turned to a desk phone near
by and the boy connected him.
"Hello! Is this Mr. Dawson's apart
ment? Will you say that Mr. and Mrs.
Curtis are here. What's that?" sharp
ly. "What message did they leave?"
Helen was standing by listening
breathlessly. The maid's shrill voice
carried beyond the 'phone, but she
could not make out the words.
With a" mutered exclamation War
ren slammed up the receiver and strode
toward the door. Helen followed, her
heart in her throat. What could It
Outside Warren stalked along, his
face crimson with rage. Helen had
almost to run to keep beside him. A.

whispered Helen, refusing to let . M r.
Stevens place tbelr chairs in the front
of the booc .
Happily it was a long scene, ana
Helen had time to regain her poise.
"Act as though nothing had. hap
pened." she whispered pleadingly to
Warren behind her programme.
But he only growled a curt "Hush!
At last the act was ended and the
lights flared up.
Tm so glad you could come smiled
Mrs. Dawson, turning coramny i
Helen. "We hadn't hoped to see you
before tomorrow evening."
"Tomorrow evening!" gasped Helen.
"Whv, yes; you haven't forgotten
you're "to dine with usT'
"Oh. no," broke in Waren heartily.
"We're looking forward to that. And,
by the way, Dawson; we drove by your
place this evening We were on our
way uptown to a Bohemian club din
ner and thought you and Mrs. Dawson
might lik to join us."
Helen bit her lips and bent lower
over her program.
Warren had always said he stuck to
the truth when he could as it was not
such a tax on the memory but that
when it was necessary he could lie
magnificently." And this was a sample
of his art.
Whose mistake had It been his or
Mr. Dawson's? Helen knew if it had
been Warren's he would probably not
admit it But at least, the fault was
not hers, for Mr. Dawson had phoned
the invitation to Warren himself. For
once something had happened for
which she could not be blamed.

Tombstone, Arix., Nov. 20. City at
torney John F. Ross appeared before
judge F. E. Sutter in the superior court
and secured an order citing the Moun
tain States Telephone company to ap
pear in court on Friday, the 2 2d of
this month, to show cause why an in
junction should not Issue against their
compatay, preventing them from
further working on the underground
system of telephones they are now in
stalling in the city of Bouglas.
The case is a peculiar one In this
respect previous to the incorporation
of the city of Douglas, the Douglas
Improvement company was In opera
tion in the then village of Douglas,
and when Douglas was incorporated
the Improvement company continued to
operate the telephone system without
any interference. About a year ago
the Mountain States Telephone com
pany bought out the telephone system
of the Douglas Improvement company.
A few weeks ago the Mountain States
company began the work of rebuilding
the Douglas system and, at aa expend
iture of $20,000, is now "underground
Ing" the system in Hie city. The city
council claims the telephone company
has no franchise or rights at all and
before proceeding further must get a
franchise. The company has made nc
statement, but it appears that even
If the original company never had a
permit or franchise, it obtained certain
vested rights, for it had been in the
town for over nine years without any

ABOUT DCSTY STREETS.
Merchants are complaining because
the downtown streets are not sprinkled
and the big, street car sprinkler is
rusting out on the Cotton avenue yards
of the street railway company. One
merchant said he had lost much val
uable stock because of the damage the
wind has done to the gods when dis
played in the store. The city con
tend tsat the streets can be cleaned
beter when the sprinkler is not used,
but the merchants say that the streets
are aa dusty five minutes after they
are swept as before, and that the
sprinkling service is necessary when
the stoor doors are kept open.
