To a Little Girl: I visited at your
home and I feel I must write to you,
instead of to your mother, for it was
you who save me the greatest pleas

First of all, I noticed your low, soft

Then I observed how quickly and
quietly you responded to any word
from your elders running on errands
and waiting on your mother and her
guest with such a sweet air, as If it
were play to you, and never seeming
to be conscious of yourself, only of
those who were about you.
I recalled. unwillingly, another
young girl I had seen once upon a
time, wno pouted at every request her
mother made, and at times flatly con
tradicted her parents, and who com
manded her mother to bring bar hair
ribbon and comb from another room,
and never said "Thank you."
To me, the child's conduct was
shocking, just as yours was admir
able; I noticed your way of saying
"Thank you" and "You are very kind."

how you tried to be unobtrusive when
older people were talking and to

A healthy, happy, hearty group of
girls it was that demonstrated the
physical culture methods of - the El
Paso School for Girls before 200
friends and patrons of the school at
the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium Wednesday.
The girls went through their parts
with a fine vigor and rim; they played
as if they enjoyed it; in the relay
races, they really ran. ran hard, ran
to win: in the marching figures they
maintained excellent alinement and
moved lightly in quick zouave time:
in the folk dances they entered
thoroughly into the spirit of the move
ments; and in the esthetic dancing
they were graceful, lithe, and free
from self consciousness. Such a
charming group of maidens, gentle,
clear eyed, joyous, straight limbed,
erect of carriage, and- perfectly obedi
ent to intelligent direction, is good to
a nniahu f.- about these annual
demonstrations is that they represent
only the ordinary daily work of the
school in the physical eilture depart-
ment There is no working up o
special "show day," no taxing tinre
from regular duties ana i"
practice unusual exercises; on the con
trary, much of the work on Wednes
day, much, of the best of it was done
with no more than one rehearsal, and
indeed the various classes came to
gether for the first time, at the pub
lic demonstration itself.
Snappy work characterized the dem
onstration in every part Miss Ruby
Mianda Stone, the physical director
of the. school, had entire charge or
the program as she has had of tne
training. Her efficiency as a teacher
was proved by the excellent perform
ance of a varied program. The girls,
of whom there were nearly 50. maoe
a' very pretty picture as they came
upon the floor dressed In their gym
nasium suits of white blouses with
blue ties and dark blue bloomers.
The first number was an exercise
in free arm work by the entire school.
The pupils worked in harmony ana
unison: the second number. "Marching
Tactics." by the upper school, was
especially good, showing many Intri
cate phases in marching; next came a
free arm drill by the little folks who
were alert and graceful in their -work.
The dumbbell drill by upper school
girls was very pretty.
Following these an interesting game
of German bat ball was played by
the lower school. ,
Relay races by the entire school
caused much excitement and amuse
ment among the audience as well as
the pupils. .

You listened wtth remarkable con

people were talking.
When they talked to you it was de

At other times I watched you play

and natural as any other child, and
sometimes a bit boisterous and over
exuberant That is quite excusable, and once
when a little boy was rude I saw you
indulge in a temper and heard you

were quite a human child, and not an

much in this life.
Ready for Emergencies.
I saw you, while reading a book,

FOUSD NBAR ALBUCIUBRQTJK.
Albuquerque. N. M.. April 17. The
mystery surrounding the disappearance
on November 11, 1911, of Margaret
Greb, an 18 year old girl of this city,
was explained yesterday by the finding
of a skeleton in Los Huertas canyon
in the Sandla mountains, 30 miles from
here. Identification was made com
plete by heavy gold fillings in the
teeth and a ring which the girl wore
at the time of her disappearance.
The supposition is that the girl wan
dered away in a fit of despondency, be
came lost in the mountains and starved
to death. The skeleton was found by
a sheep herder in an almost inaccess
ible portion of the canyon.

TO START JULY L
Additional Wclfal Are to be Snafc to la
crease the AVater Supply to Meet
the Greater Demand.
Enlargement of Fort Bliss will com-
meace about July 1. according to pres
sent calculations. Sepcifications fof
the proposed improvements have nots
yet reached the post but a. general
outline of the improvements has been:'
Increasing the post from one off
squadron size to one of regimental Im
portance necessitates the erection off
several new buildings and the increas
ing of other facilities at the fort onr
the mesa. There will be 19 new of
ficers' quarters and these, which will
probably be somewhat different in de
sign from those at present used for
that purpose, will oecupy the same
part f the military reservation along;
the south line.
For the non-commissioned officers
there will be double set of quarters
erected in addition to those at present
in use anad the new buildings wilt,
adjoin the old ones on the BOTtcwest-
ern part or tne grounos.
Adjoining the present quarters for
the enlisted men there will be eight
new barracks erected each to second
modate about OS men and one bar
racks for the band accommodating:
about 30 men. In the rear of these,
barracks will be sine stabtdB and shops
for their horses. There will also ber
three new hay barns for storing- fod
der. Adjoining the quartermaster depot
will be a new ordnance store house,
and the railroad track will be ex
tended 1.500 feet An isolation ward
and another addition are to be made
to the post hospital.
Supplying water for all the new
quarters is another problem that mut
be met It is expected that three ad
ditional deep weels, each 650 feet
deep and 10 feet in diameter will meet
this demand. There will be 2.000 fe-t
of eight inch and 500 feet of mn
inch water pipe, a reservoir of 100 i"i
gallons capacity to serve as a sett','--tank
and a 'pumping plant and ref r- -eratlng
plant for making sufficient
to supply the whole post
Work has been started on the cl .
well on the target range, and 1
