Pleased At Farewell.
Words cannot express our pleasure
at tbe rousing sendoff accorded us by
El Paso. After that ovation, If the
army surgeons had rejected me, I'd
have felt like sseakin? home Is the
dead, of night and hiding from m
But, lest you should think that our
enthusiastic farewell has made us
think we are embryo Napoleons and
heroes. I want to e mo ha size the fact
that every mas realises his ignorance
of and Inexperience Is military mat
ters; many of na-are studying army
text books, and all have determined
to work to the limit of our ability In
order to justify El Paso's enthusiasm.
The real heroes in this war are not
the soldiers, anyway. The real he
roes, whose battles are fought ia si
lence, whose wounds are Invisible,
whose victories and defeats are un
heralded by the blaring of bands and
the plaudits ot the world, are tbe
wives, mothers, sisters and sweet
hearts of the men in khaki. The calm
and Inspiring cheerfulness ot these
valiant souls daring the last hours
we were at nome, took more Bravery
than that required to storm a trench.
Troubles ot "Officers."
Julius Alberts and I have had our
troubles. Alberts was In charge ot
the quota from district Xo. J. and I
had command of No. 1.
We were ordered to send telegrams
to the adjutant at Camp Travis six
hours before our arrival Being over
two hours late, we decided to "wire
As the train slowed down at San
derson, Alberts and I hopped off and
beat It for the telegraph office. I
accosted a languid operator.

"Well, I hate to ask jou to work

Can't help that." He squinted be

"Oh. 'bout IS or 1 oclock."

it I do, 111 have to explain why the
wire didn't get there on time."
He bristled. He spat more vicious
ly than before this time at a spit
toon, which he missed in his excite
ment o( Afraid of Government.
"Can't run no bugaboo like that on
me," he snarled. "I don't give a durn
what ye do!"
"All right all right! I'm more
afraid ot the war department than
you are." I replied. 'Til leave the tel
egrams here; and I have a witness
tnat i aid all i could to send them. Ii
you want to risk not sending them,
that's your affair."
Alberts Is a diplomat. He went to
work to smooth don n the irate opera

Alberts told me that the man hal
promisea to sena nis telegram, but he
wouldn't send mine by Heck!
J. F. Williams, chairman of local

anything else we wanted. Albert

It was the opinion of El Paso busi

Juan Horns, representing the depart

Mexico's trade conditions, that now la
the time to send our attaches Into
Mexico, since the Carransa govern
ment has been fully recognized by the
United States there haa been a srreat
change. There are today only a few
small bands of outlaws operating In
the stales of Chihuahua and Coahulla.

9aya Americans Don't Stndy Mtnatlon.
Americans don t take tne trouble
to learn Spanish to Improve business
in Mexico. The German merchant,
when he opens his headquarters,
quietly studies the financial status of
the merchants he expects to sell He
does this without tbe merchants I
knowlmr it. Then when he roes to
sell one he knows whether be can give
him six months or A year's credit. He
keeps a record of the wants of the
merchants and his customers and
knowa exactly what he wants to buy.
When he makes his sale of goods he
sends his order to Germany and the
goods are shipped to Mexico and the
merchant gtvn the proper time of
Dwell on Finances.
"When an American goes Into Mex
ico to sell a bill of goods the first
thing he wants to koow is how are
financial conditions. The merchant is
not used to doing his trading io this
manner and says. No. I can buy from
another, he will give me credit.' We
often have to send an interpreter to
Mexico with oi,r salesmen. And often
the interpreter does not translate
l'.ierally the meaning of the salesman
to the merchant.
Must Leant Metric System.
"Another thing wo must learn ia
the metric system of measures and
-a eights. The American merchant and-)
wholesaler has more trouble and Is
subject to more fines because he dees
not know the metric system than for
"Credit Is something we must study
We must give the proper credit to
the Mexican merchant or we will sot
get his business. Our man u facto re rs
must study the needs of the Mexican
people. They would be wise. In my
opinion, to establish branches Is their
industries for the manufacture ot
materials that the Mexican and South
American want to buy.
Exports Arc lacreaslng.
"During the fiscal year ending In !
191$ the exports to Mexico through,
the El Paso port amounted to more'
than three million dollars. The ex-1
ports for the fiscal year ended June i

was mostly coaL coke, flour, corn,

"Prior to the revolution the ex
