The Influence Of The Herald
T HERE'S the man whose ihand Is clammy as a fish that lately died, and to
grasp it sends a shudder percolating through your 'Iride, and yon feel its cold
impression in your muscles and your glands, and you wish he'-d wear an oven
on his blamed antarctic hands. There's the man with hands so horny that the'
feel like chunks of slate, and when he is shaking-with you, you can feel them grind
and grate; and he nearly breaks your fingers, and you
mutter through your hat: 'I would run them through a
HUMAN HANDS smelter if any hands were liard as that!" There's the
man whose hands are always pawing, pawing while he
talks; they are fussing with your whiskers, they are
reaching for your socks; fchey are patting on your bosom, they are clawing on your
arm, and you'd like to meet their owner on "the ilrs. Gunness farm. There's t3ie
man whose hands are always sliding down into his jeans, to relieve some broken
pilgrims of .their miseries and pains; and such hands, thatc in their giving, never
falter, never tire, in the golden time a-coming will be twanging at the lyre!

"YELLOW" ARTICLES IN SMALL TYPE
Last of Series on English Elections
ONDON. Eng., Jan. 29. The Eng
lish newspapers In a political
campaign go quite as wild as the
public speakers -or their friends, the
hecklers. The independent journal is
all but unknown, every newspaper is a
party organ, and every one of them
goes its full length in praise of its can
didates and In derogation of those of

The Liberal newspapers refer to their

Compared with American newspapers
the British journals in political activ

THE influence of The Herald in advertising and building up El Paso is felt in
all sections of the country. The Herald can say with the certain knowledge
thatj it is stating nothing but a fact, that it has done more in building
ap the southwest and El Paso in particular than any other agency in xne eawc
section. The Herald is proud of this accomplishment, for The Herald is of the
southwest and for the southwest Its mission , is ttf advertise the southwest for
what it is the finest region in the world for the home maker and the worker. The
Herald has grown and hopes to grow more with-the -southwest.

These letters come from outside of what might be called El Paso's own terri

The many kind compliments paid The Herald by the newspapers and citizens in
the immediate El Paso territory have shown how The Herald is appreciated at home.

Community Honor Rolls
THE subscription list of the Y. W. C. A. makes a splendid showing, but it is
not as good as it will show. This is merely the first report of the work.
The women are keeping it up; there will be more subscriptions to report in
a few days and more in a few more days.
This is the right plans. Every subscriptoin list of this character should be
published as fast as the solicitors get the names. The people should be allowed
to see who are the friends of El Paso; just who is giving to the different en
terprises and who is not. This practice should be followed in all solicitations for
funds fair subscriptions and all and The Herald means to make every effort
always to get such lists and publish them.
It is right to those who give and to the city. The people whose money goes
to make El Paso a greater El Paso should get the credit for it and such publica
tion also serves the purpose of showing those who fail to give.
These subscription lists are the honor rolls of the community and the com
munity ought to have them.

. - . El -Paso and the Soldiers
EL PASO will regreat the departure of the Nineteenth infantry for the orient.
The soldiers of the Nineteenth have made warm friends of the El Paso people.
They have always conducted themselves well and have been gentlemen wher
ever they appeared. As a whole they have been more orderly, it is safe to say,
ihan a similar number of men in any other walk of life would have been.
Once in a while a soldier has been arrested for drinking i bit too much and
creating a little disturbance, but where can you find a band of 400 men where there
arill not be more disorder than has been experienced among the soldiers at Fort
Sliss on their tours down town? They are a fine lot of boys and the people of El
Paso are glad to testify to their good conduct.
The smoker by the chamber of commerce as a farewell to the men was a just
testimonial to a splendid lot of soldiers, who will be followed to the Philippines by
the well wishes- of the civilian population of El Paso in its entirety.

Cattlemen fear they are going to be the real losers in the meat boycott they

The state vagrancy law has been held constitutional. That is one of the

After luncheon, and when the chairman
of his committee is well out of the way,
he gets down the flute, puts a music
stand in front of him and proceeds to
blow his head off for a couple of hours.
Mr. Miller is happy but the policemen!
The only salvation of the latter Is to
get Mr. Smith, chairman of the district
committee, to remain in"his office some
afternoon while Mr. Miller is practicing.
Then, say the policemen, there will be
