All complaints will receive prompt attention. contribute to the city's charities, who hand over a check somewhat larger than the supposed offering, accept the difference from charity's cash box and walk out with it, charity finding out too late that the check is bogus. In the last recorded instance of such trick a man came in to give twenty , dollars to the charity as a memorial to his mother. . He handed the officer of the charity a check and walked out. The officer read ;he check, discovered it was for $25.75. ran after the man and called him back for his change. The man thanked her, took the money and was seen no more. The charity society tried to cash the check, but it wae protested, which cost the society one dollar, thus making "its total loss $6.75. o Congress is determined to do some thing to control hazing at West Point, and will probably require the author ities of the school to investigate all charges and lnc.uents of hazing thor oughly and expel all cadets found guilty of the practice. , Trials of strength, some bullying, and what is known as "ragging" will always be where healthy boys congregate. It is as impossible to eradicate them as to do away with leap frog, marbles, ball playing, or westlilg, and a reasonable amount does the boys good. But bru tality is another matter. The young men of colleges and schools often for get themselves and carry things too far. Minding one's own business is an important - lesson in manliness and strength, and one that West Pointers and college men would do well to con sider and learn. ' o The cadets of West Point have called the four classes to a meeting and liaan imously decided to abolish "exercis ing." hazing of all sorts, and the prac tice of "calling out" fourth class men. The cadets have a strong love for the academy and regret that its name has been so sullied by the recent charges against it, and in order that no such charges may again arise, they have voluntarily abolished hazing. Public opinion and congress voicing public opinion demanded it of the authorities, but the cadets stepped forth to do their part. o A CURIOUS RESULT OF OUR INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT. One of the most curious results of America's tremendous advances in manufacturing for the world's markets Is the tact that, by partially crippling our commercial rivals, we have cut off to some degree our own markets in those countries. The competition of the United States is causing the Euro pean nations, especially Germany and Kngland, great concern. Those coun tries are coming to realize that our in dustrial system is all but irresistible, and that we have left them far behind in the development of our industrial resources. With an unlimited field from which to draw our raw mater ials, and markets constantly expand ing, America is in truth intoxicated with success, while England and Ger many are chagrined and discouraged at the new turn of affairs. Germany has been committing the error that we are likely to commit un less we gee to it that our markets in the orient are kept open and con stantly enlarged. fth bag tied up all her capital in plants and factories, in the machinery of production, while lit tle has been left to be devoted to the organization the factor of dis tribution. The result of this new condition of affairs is that German manufacturers are disposed to back water for a while until they can reorganize their system. England Is considering the feasibility of sending young men over to this country to learn our methods of manu facturing and distribution. The spirit of European enterprise has in a meas ure collapsed, or is in a waiting stage. The result is, that just as America feels the flush of. grand achievement, the self confidence that comes from complete success, she finds herself fac ing an entirely new set of problems arising from the new relations between us and the great powers. . The close Interrelation of interests, the impos sibility of one nation being wholly suc cessful at the expense of another, is demonstrated by the fact that there are indications of a falling off in our exports of raw material and manufac tured goods to these countries, upon whose commercial territories we have trespassed. Thus do things in this world even themselves up, and there is a limit set to the swing of the pendulum. o Sharpsters -do not even spare the charities but will steal from God. The New York charities have often lost money by men coming in desiring to Tomorrow, January twentyfifth, will be the anniversary of Bobbie Burns's birthday and it will be celebrated en thusiastically in the four quarters of the globe. Burns died in 179C. In the thirty-seven years of his life, and even more since he died, the flame of his genius has kindled many lights of love, genius, enthusiasm, poetry, philoso phy, observation, and reflection. No man of genius has ever had a warmer place in the hearts of men, than has the Scot plow man. o The " record of the Marquis of Queensberry's doings in his thirty-two years of life proves that an energetic Englishman, even a marquis, can be as strenuous as any young American and would shame some of our idle young men who do their days' work and no more. The Englishman in ques tion has served in the militia, has served in the fleet as a sailor, has been an explorer and a mining expert, and has not neglected to make a fort une by his own efforts while he has been doing all the other things, o The English newspapers are coming around to an acceptance of the Amer ican idea concerning the military con trol of the Nicaragua n canal. They say they will realize the commercial benefits of the canal anyhow, that to maintain absolute neutrality in time of war would be practically impossible, that someone will have to have mili tary control of it, and all that which Is all very true and exactly as we see It. -. 6 President Diaz is to be congratulated on having achieved the triumphal po sition of grandparent. Now he will have opportunity to exercise to the fullest his powers of diplomacy, strat egy, and administration of punishment and reward, in fact his whole states manship. Two other great men, Vic tor Hugo and Gladstone, made a fine art of being a grandfather. o Johann Faber, one of the lead pencil brothers, is dead, but his lead pencils will probably never die unless this or another century develops thought transference to such a fine point that scribblers, reporters, market men, housewives, and the multitude of art students and artists will just have to think things ar.d they will be recorded. Mississippi will probably choose the magnolia blossom as the state flower. It is the choice of the school chil iren and the state legislature has been asked to affirm their wish. , Colonel Henry Watterson of the Louisville Courier Journal is no sub scriber tc Texas's boom for Hill. He asks with more or lss profanity who Hill is anyway. Among the other crusades in the name of higher civilization it must be recorded that Barcelona is makii'g an other attempt to abolish bull fighting in Spain. o "She wrought her people lasting good," quotes one of the London news papers in commenting on Victoria's long reign. Poor Cleveland is crying Wo, wo, wo. He fears greatly for his country and for civilization. o Soon the Pettigrew will cease its pettigrewlng and the country will have comparative rest. o Astor will find Edward VII even more difficul to mollify than Wales was. THE DAWNING OF THE TWEN TIETH CENTURY. SUNNY WOMEN. Who has not known the woman whose disposition is described by that one word "sunny ?" There's always a laugh lurk ing on her lips. Her cheeks are ever ready to dimple in smiles. Her house hold influence is as brightening and stimulating as the sunshine. Nothing can be crueler than to have this sunshine blotted out by disease. But this is a common cruelty. The young wife who was the sunshine of the home becomes its shadow. Every young wife should know the value of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription in the protection and pres ervation of the health. It promotes regularity, dries the drains which enfee ble body and mind, and cures inflamma tion, ulceration and female weakness. It nourishes the nervous system and gives to the body the balance and buoy ancy of perfect health. It is a strictly temperance medicine.

The dawn-line would coincide with the date-line, and from pole to pole the first sun of the new century would rise at the' same moment. But, unfortunately, this is not so. and the consequence is that the line of dawn, aa it sweeps round the earth. first touches the date-line to the south of the equator,' " and then gradually creeps up this line till it leaves it far to the north. So the first sun of the twentieth century will rise on the plac es along or near the date-line in the order of their position, from the south upwards. Now there is no land along this line from the Antarctic Circle to Antipodes island, hence this tiny spot of earth will first see the twentieth century dawn. A few minutes later Bounty Island will see it. Then it will sweep along the north-east coast of the North Island. New Zealand: then over Vanua Levu In the Fiji Islands. Next it will shine on the scattered coral islets of the Ellice group, and after traveling about nine degrees more to the north, the light-tide will touch the crossing of the dawn-line and the date-line at six o'clock. Two hours and five minutes will have to pass before it reaches the banks of the Yarra.

A mere German is trying to discount Tesla and our own Edison, by perfect ing a mode of lighting buoys by elec tricity generated from the waves. If his method prove practical, Germany will have a perfect right to throw flow ers at hersolf. Paul Botha's book, "From ,Boer to Boer," which the Boer peace party is industriously distributing about the Transvaal, has angered the doughty De Wet to the point cf saying he'd shoot the author on sight. o London's fog costs the city from $250,000 to $500,000 every day in gas and electricity bills and delay to traf fic. EI Paso can count herself just so much to the good. Her sunshine is money. On yesterday The Herald printed the grievance of H. R. Patrick, of Phoenix. who said he was arrested during the carnival without cause. Policeman Billy Smith says he ar rested Patrick because the latter had been pointed out to him as a suspicious character by Uncle John Julian and irs. The man bad papers In bis pocket showing that he bad been rep resenting himself to be a deaf and dumb man after he came to El Paso, and had been carrying on written con versations with other strangers. In regard to this Patrick, who is a one lunger, says he lost his voice for a time and was compelled to communi cate by means of paper and pencil The police found a pistol on Patrick when he was searched at headquarters, but In view of the fact that he was a visitor and seemed to be all right the chief let him go without prosecution, and returned the weapon to him. Smith says if anyone offered any in tuits to Patrick be knew nothing about it. HON. TOM. W. PEAKE. OF TERLINGUA, IS DEAD. Hon Tom. W. Peake, well known In this city, is dead.

He came back on the special train with the Shriners, and said they all had a splendid time. "The carnival was a grand success in every respect." said Mr. Turner, "and the managers have decided to hold one every year and on a larger .cale. The town was crowded with sightseers, many from the north, who were surprised and delighted at the summer-like weather. "It is worthy of ncte that a number of persons who went from Dallas af flicted wltn the grip returned quite cured. "The midway and the confetti battles were features of the carnival especially worth mentioning. ... The crowds there seemed congeni every one good-humored, and drunk ness was rarely seen. "I saw my first bull fight and exciting. During the performance one of the bulls tossed a horse and rider over a six foot fence and followed af ter. The fight occurred in Juarez, across the rivtr from El Paso." Dal las New9. Joseph McMillan.
