EL PASO DAILY HERALD. SATURDAY. MARCH 16, 1901.
SAGE SIX. The Blight of Little Kick About An All But Universil Habit. "How utterly void of refinement and cleanly comfort life would become if one were denied the use ot that small remnant of the lumber yard. a tooth pick." "So spake the clean cut young bus iness man to The Herald reporter. They had again met in the lobby of one of El Paso's finest hotels and had been silently watching the exodus from the dining room as the guests finished their evening allowance of physical fuel. One by one as ihey passed the little table near the door they stretched forth their hands and took unto themselves a t-mall sliver of wood and proceeded to delve and dig into their facial open ings. There seemed to be an under current of sarcasm about the remark of the clean cut business man that led the reporter to enquire what kick he had coming against e custom that had become one of the recognized insti tutions of domestic and social life. "Like Ko-Ko. I was but soliloquising, my boy." was the reply. "It is a sub ject upon which I have bestowed some desultory thought prompted thereto by the immense number of tooth-picks that are consumed with the meals in this hottel three times a day. In fact I may say that in one of my periodical literary drunks I gave vent to my thought on this subject in an article which I entitled 'The Blight of the Tooth-pick.' " The young business man was prevail ed upon to bring his effusion from be neath the bushel basket in which he hid his incandescent lamps and other literary truck, and it runs as follows: "THE BLIGHT OF THE PICK" TOOTH- Now in the beginning no man knoweth whence came the tooth-pick. It is no ne wtbing. thanks be. An it were, verily would it show that our fine. large, good opinion of ourselves as the most advanced type ever, and the beautiful floral offerings we have been presenting to ourselves (again) on the marvelous progress of the world during the past century are mere fig ments of an evanescent dream. For the reason that no sane person could by any stretch of a brilliant imagin ation . conceive that the busy little tooth-pick can be classed under the head of inventions which make for the uplifting and refinement of mankind. As to that I do not believe the tooth pick is an invention. Notwithstanding Kreat minds often concern themselves ott trivial things to the lasting bene fit of the race, it seems to me hardly probable that any ancient genius should have evolved from the depths of his inner consciousness the belief that the world was laboring painfully alcng the ringing grooves of time, ham pered by an unknown handicap, which same was the lack of the festiv tooth pick hereinbefore mentioned. Or that the placing of this deadly weapon in the face of suffering humanity would furnish a lever to speed the wheels of progress and hurry civilization as Joy ously on its ways as if it had dust proof ball bearings and were geared up to 124. Far be it from so. The first tooth picks were probably not tailor made. History is silent on this point, but one can conceive one of our forebears, the bturdy old roots of our family trees, as it were, finishing a heavy course din ner, using his hair for a finger bowl, and then, after searching through his Test pockets for a match, grasping his trusty sword, scimiter. sabre, clay more or other tool used in his partic ular country for carving one's destiny and enemies, and sawing off a small portion of the festal board which forth with became a tooth-pick. In course of time was born one of an impatient temperament for whom events moved too slowly: one who per haps first discovered that time is mon ey and that the effort consumed in pre paring one's masticating machinery for the next load of coal was undig nified besides being a sinful waste of golden moments: and since the method -was crude. It meant ultimate hours of torture and much good red gold invest ed in fees to the chirurgeon. Resulted the tooth brush, than which no better implement for the purpose has yet ap peared. Now it would seem that, the body po litic being permeated with the spirit of progress, all men and women would have recognized instantly the superior ity of the tooth brush, hailed it with glad acclaim and relegated medieval methods to the realm of things forgot ten. But not. Let us pause and look about us. Nay. let us circulate.. Let us visit any kitchen, grill, cafe, or buffet, even any hostelry of many mirrors, plate glass, head waiters who apparently be long to the peerage and rates to cor- respond, wherefore gather the elite of the traveling public. Let us single out any member of the gentler sex, which should surely be more partic ular as regards these trivial touches that yet make or mar the whole. Here comes one with stately step and digni fied bearing from out of the hall. Now See the pretty lady. Isn't she a peach? You bet she is. She knows how to dress: is it not? Even so. On the street also? Verily: she wears an automobile. Why? Does she own a horseless carriage? Not so you could see it. The only horseless vehicle she has ever been in is the El Paso anil Juarez mule car. Then why Tut. tut. Because it Is the real thing. Ah yes. she Is making a front. Something of that kind. Not every one with a chip on his shoulder owns a lumber yard. I see. But she is a lady? Truly. the Toothpickjsports and Is the lady afraid someone will at tack her. Why cio you ask? She carries a sharp stick in her hand Yes? She holds it in readiness to repel boarders. See. she seats herself and places the weapon in her mouth. She manipulates it with much energy and facial contortions. This is passing stranr Is she eating if Not so. She has merely gone into executive session with a tooth-pick. Well, wouldn't that rasp you? Yes. Willie, it would and it does. And she is not the only one. They come in bunches, of both sexes and all ages. They drift into the lobby of a hotel after each meal and stana in groups, or sit in rows, ruminatively chewing a tooth-pick each, with an ex pression of bovine content. Get on tne flank of one of these company fronts and gaze along the line of faces. It looks like a cheveaux-de-frlse. Stand near a restaurant and watch the sass- ily-garbed dames float out and upon the street.a nd nine out of ten will be punching her pearly teeth, her escort, if she iad one. tamblen. Tastes differ. but whenever I see a woman perpetrat ing a tooth-pick I wonder how much I would have to be offered to consent to kiss her. Not thats he but that brands no cattle anyhow. But. oh. wad some power the giftie gie them. To see themselves as ither& see them. All this is not saying that the tooth pick is not useful and valuable at times. I supposeit would be hard to convince the prosperous and contented manufacturer thereof that it is an un mitigated evil, or. in making two tooth picks grow wnere one grew last year that he is not doing good to his fellow creatures. And I am certain that if some people I have known were de prived of the delight of gouging out their countenances post-prandiany with a young bludgeon they would feel lonesome and discontented and per chance an expression of chronic discon tent is worse than the tooth-pick face. But was it not ever thus? What pander to the follies, foibles and vul garities of man has ever been con vinced that he is an enemy to human kind? And what poor shrivelled soul groping blindly In the mists of un knowledge sees with amber vision the depths of his misfortune? Let us be humbly thankful that providence has vouchsafed us a state in which such things are alien. Even I have on oc casion been thankful for the existence of the tooth-pick. I have used one with much success as a substitute for a nail file. How did I happen to have it? I refuse to incriminate myself. QUESTION ANSWERED. Yes, August Flower still has tht largest sale of any medicine In the civ ilized world. Your mothers and grand mothers never thought of nsing any thing else for Indigestion or Bllllous ness. Doctors were scarce, and they seldom heard of Appendicitis. Nervous Prostration or Heart Failure.

In speaking of the fight, the old-time light-weight said: "The fight was so fast for fifty rounds that we wore out two referees. Many people went home and ate their suppers and then came back for the finish. Up to the fiftieth round 1 was in perfect condition, but then I broke both of my hands and al though I was advised to stop. I kept at it until Andy made a proposition to ston and call it a draw. Say. may be you think 1 was not glad to hear him say it. All I could do for the last sixty rounds was to keep out of his way. and only once in a while I would land a love tap on him and then get away before he could get to me. "Bo wen was at his best at that time, and was considered the crack light weight of the country. The ring in which we fought was not padded, but instead they had river sand for a floor and it was pounded down until it was as hard as stone. I used a pair of light shoes in the fight, and when it was over the sand had worn away the soles and my feet were so badly burned that 1 could hardly stand iip. It was three weeks before I could dress my self. The pugilists of today could hardly stand such a long distance pace for the simple reason that they train to last twenty-five rounds and that is their limit. In my opinion that ac counts for the numerous fakes." Mr. Burke left on the limited last night for San Francisco, where he has a theatrical company. mmm The magnates of the Texas Baseball league are holding a meeting today in Waco, when they will elect permanent officers and complete th organization of the state league. It is said that the Texas league will have better players this year than ever before, on account of the failure of the American Associ ation to land. El Paso was talked of for a time as one of the cities to be represented, but the other cities ob jected on account of the long distance from the next place. It would take all they made to pay the railroad fore to and from El Paso, they claimed, and they would have no chance of making any money. The Sporting News publishes the fol lowing list of players who are rather signed or expected to sign with the American and National League teams for the coming season.
