OH, SHRIEK with joy, yon lucky boy, vacation's nearly ended, and soon
you'll tool yourself to school the thought is surely splendid! We long
have known how tired you've grown of fooling round and fishing, how
for your books and slate, gadzooks, you've ardently been wishing. We've seen
yon weep because they keep the school house closed all summer; you tired of play
in half a day (which statement is a hummer!) The swimming hole to schoolboy
soul gives little satisfaction; in dreams you see the Rule of Three, and eke the
Vulgar Fraction. You think of maps while idle chaps are stealing unri.e apples;
your thoughts are all of learning's hall, of blackboards, desks and chapels. Ah,
how you hate to dig for bait, or boatinggo, or gunning, when yoa aught find
food for your mind if school were only running! How you abhor the baseball
war, and other pastimes diziy, when you might strike some truths you'd like, if
school "were only "busy! Now, sing and smile! A little while will see vacation
ended- reward will come, the schools will hum that thought is surely splendid!

The Business Outl&ok
FINANCIAL and commercial news all over this country is distinctly reassuring.
Some mills in New England that have been running on short time or closed
altogether have placed their forces back tn a normal oasis. Sales of dry
goods by wholesalers in the big markets have exceeded by 20 percent the sales
last year at this time. The steel market has got over its scare, and Birmingham
reports more men at work thsn before the war began. The prospects for an
early resumption of foreign trade are good, owing to British power on the sea
though there will be no present chance of reopening trade with the countries
hostile to Great Britain. Large general advertisers, who suspended their con
tracts upon the outbreak of war, are dnfting back into their normal courses.
Absence of foreign industrial competition n our home markets should operate
to stimulate home manufactures, and, for the lime being, to offset in considerable
degree the bhghting effects oi the new tariff law; it is a piece of lsck for the
national administration, that this is so. The country, spared by general war
from active European competition, can go ahead with its "industries as if Jthe
tanif protection had been retained.
Cotton exports will be light for a long time, because the mills of Great
Britain and the continent cannot for the present find operatives. This is one
reason; the absence of ships to carry the cotton abroad is another. In a month
or two it may be expected that Great Britain will have insured the safety of
shipping on the Atlantic, and then cotton and wheat can move.
Pending resumption of export movement, the southern states through their
legislatures and backing connections are arranging to finance the cotton growers
at minimum loss to them. So far, there has been no disposition anywhere to force
liquidation, and the only immediate effect is to cause a general tightening of
credit in the cotton regions. This means that general business will be retarded
for a while, but it docs not mean distress.
In El Paso, while the effect of copper stagnation, is felt in considerable
degree, there are so many other factors distinctly favorable in the situation that
there is no indication of a drag in trade. Merchants both wholesale and retail
are doing a record business. There is plenty of money in circulation, and col
lections are not abnormally slow for this season. The El Paso and district banks
2re in splendid shape to take care of all legitimate demands, now or in future.
Ho strain is looked for' in any part of the west or southwest.
A good deal of the sudden increase in prices of some foodstuffs, reported
over the country during the first weeks of war, was due solely to the "scare"
that was set up. Part of the increase was due to the excessive buying of in
dividuals and merchants in the effort to protect themselves against an expected
inflation. This condition quickly brought about an unprecedented buying de
mand, and the economic law of prices governed the situation.
The actual situation is reflected by the recent detailed statement of Armour
& Co, indicating only a very moderate fractional increase in meat prices. There
has been a great shortage of livestock in 'all markets for some months, accen
tuated during the last few weeks. Beef
were a third less than last year's; hogs have been even harder to get, the
supply varying from one-half aVjrn to one-seventh of last year's supply at like
period. Over this condition the packers had no control. But in spite of the
shortage of raw material, the market records show tha: the average increase in
the last six or eight weeks in wholesale prices of beef through Armour's 350
branch houses has been only a fraction over 1-2c a pound 56-1G0ths of a cent,
or $0.0055, to be exact; in no case did the advance amount to so .much as 3-4c
It is also made clear that no stocks have been pijed up in storage in the
effort to influence prices. Armour's reports that its stocks in storage on August 15
were 30 percent less than they were six weeks previously, and no larger than
last year at this time, while considerably less than in other years.
Doubtless some commercial interests have tried to use the war to bring about
tn artificial inflation of prices to consumers. But so far there has been no
fundamental condition to justify such increases. Consumers, by simply re
fusing to buy at artificially inflated prices, have the best weapon in their hands
with which to fight unreasonable increases.
The Germans have taken prisoner 30,000 Russians: but there are 9,970,000
Russian troops left in the field. In other words, for every Russian taken, there
are 332 left.
The Texas court of civil appeals holds that a minor operating a car with
consent of his father, who pays the bills, is so far the servant of his father, who

El Paso's Roof Garden
CL0TJDCR0FT closes its regular season this week, but many cottagers will
remain throughout thb month or into October. The season has been the
best, on the whole, that the popular resort ever had. The Lodge has
been patronized largely by east Texas peopre and others from a distance, as well
as by El Pasoans. The cottages have almost without exception been occupied
all season. The El Paso & Southwestern railroad, mindful of the desires of
these who know the beauties of Cloudcroft at this season of the year and have
no wish to quit early, will maintain daily service until the 15th, then triweekly
service with the same convenient train connections as now. The summer ex
cursion tickets will also be on sale at reduced rates until fcctober 1, to accemmo-.
date the late cottagers and campers.

War ' Rumors
BV GEORGE FITCH.
Antbor of "At Good Old Slwash.''
IX THESE troublesome times, when
all Europe Is Involved In a clinch
and all America, is standing be
fore the bulletin boards awaiting the
result of the first round, war lews is
a national necessity.
War new-l very difficult to obtain
because of the new tangled European
army method of segregating war cor
respondents in ceuntry clubs and cafes
hundreds of miles from the front.
Therefore the world has to rely on .war
War rumors are obtained by trans
lating the expressions on the faces of
war officials. They are also got from
bystanders on the seashore, from sou
venir postal cards, from masked lights
on the ocean, from sparrows on the
telegraph wires and from sounds of
heavy firing in the vicinity of rock
When a war rumor is obtained it is
immediately cabled to this country and
published with strong expressions of
doubt. The next day the denials are
analyzed. On the following day cor
roborating witnesses are examined and
three days later the story is boiled down
and the truth is extracted from the
residue by a man with tweezers and a
When a war rumor announces that a
German passenger ship with ill. 000,00
in gold on board has been captured by
the British, no one gets exdteji because
next day it will be discovered that the
gold was British gold anyway and that
the steamer is merely being guarded,
the following day will disclose the fact
that the steamer slipped through the
British warships safely and is approach
ing Germany, while two days later the
same boat will steam into Portland,
U. S. A.
Likewise, it will appear from a war
rumor that an entire fleet of British
warships has been lost. But the next
day it will be found that only two ves

"California figures that thousands of
dollars that usually go to Europe will
come to the two big fairs in 191a," said
Garnett King "Out there they are

has slowed down and everyone is now

"El Paso is not the only city in
Texas." said S H Porter, of eastern
Texas, "where considerable rain has
fallen this season. The rains in the
northeastern part of Texas have played
havoc with the cotton. Around Tex
arkana and Paris, where some of the
highest priced long staple cotton In the
country comes from, there has been
an especially poor picking, due to the
incessant rain. Farmers in that por
tion are accustomed to a great deal ot
rain, but this year it has been extra
ordinarily heavy, with disastrous re
sults. The corn in Oklahoma has also,
suffered from too much rain.
"Americans have been living a little
too high and this war in Europe is
going to mean a lowering in the scale
of high living a little. I think," said
Maurice Schwartz. "The war is re

We should not be unduly excited by
war rumors, remembering the fact that
in our own Spanish-American war, the
one Spanish battleship was reported
near New York, in San Francisco har
bor, aproaching New Orleans under
full steam and stealing up the Chicago
river in a heavy fog all at the same
moment. But we should read them
with the same careful, painstaking in
terest which we would give to any
summer fiction and we should also
remember that the space which is de

are not spending money foolishly as
they have done in the past. The war, is
hating its effect in all lines of our
business, although our store has the
complete winter line already bought
and much of It in the store rooms. If
the war continues until spring it will
mean that we must sell more domestic
goods, for it will be almost impossible
to get many imported articles."
"It is about time that some action
was taken to stop the wholesale coun
terfeiting of -Constitutionalist' money
in El Paso," said Harry Langman. "This
city has gained a reputation for being
a safe haven for these rascals. Dozens
of reputable merchants or this side
have been victimized by the counter
feit money and their losses must run
into hundreds of dollars. It is true
that the state department has appar
ently ruled that nothing can be done,
but If this is the case, state laws should
be invoked and If there are pone cov
ering the case I do not see why a
special city ordinance, making It a
crime to counterfeit the money, could
not be passed."
"Parral is as quiet as a New Eng
land town as far as law and order is
concerned." said W. W Stewart, of the
Parral light and Power company. "One
of our men came up recently and said
that there was nothing doing there and
that the war was almost forgotten. The
price of copper and silver prevents the
mines from opening up. but the Her
rera boys are preserving perfect order
in that camp and at Santa Barbara
and there is no more danger there than
there Is here for Americans. As soon
as the metal market gets back to its
old standard again the Parral district
is going to develop rapidly."
