The work was practically all done by the paid men of the department, under the personal direction of chief Armstrong, and the blaze was handled in a very sensible manner. It was soon under control and wit the least apparent possible damage, con sidering the hazards and the start which the flames had when discovered. There was no taking the hose onto the roof and pouring the water down throng the furniture on the top floor to reach the fire in the second story, such as in the old days, when every fireman was his own chief and to wet down every thing regardless of whether it was afire or not, was considered the principal business of a volunteer, but in this case the chief put his men to work where the . , .. -i i i tv, in flnnr mac wef no more than was fi-o ivac and soon had it unaer cunuui. to have necessary and common sense seems - . , .i . . The fire was well handled ana tne nxemeu ucuiuoc J trol even a nasty blaze. The fire insurance underwriters should take this into consideration. They have hammered everything they could find above surface since they began on El Paso; now they might call off the knockers and give the city a little credit. El Paso ought to have a full paid fire department; there is no denying that, but for ail purposes, unless the fire is a very big one, the present paid depart ment seems big enough and the volunteers can give their best services by staying outside the fire lines nnless the chief especially calls for their services. A few volunteer assistant chiefs could well be done away with. The chief and his paid assistant are sufficient to handle the department; too many assistant chiefs and assistants to assistant chiefs are apt to cause mistakes that might be costly. o Cecil Xyon and Theodore Roosevelt ought to be able to discuss some deep questions when they meet in midocean. .

Navigation THE possibilities of aerial navigation are increasing every day, and rapidly, too. It is not so many months ago, only a few, when the world was as tounded at tie ability of the Wright brothers to stay in the air a few minutes, then a few minutes more," and then an hour at a time, on the army maneuver grounds at Fort Meyer, when the first heavier than air machines were being tested for the government. Then came in rapid succession, one great aerial feat after another, culminat ing with two. flights across the English channel,, then a round trip over it, Paul fcan's flight from London to Manchester, and Curtiss's flight Sunday last from Albany to New York. While these great records were being made, Paulhan had also broken the record for height, rising over 4000 feet in the air, and Hamilton had flown over the ocean in safety and had several times crossed an international boundary (first at El Paso), demonstrating the use of the aeroplane as a war ma chine and as an international smuggler. As a result of the rapid advance in the science, several of the world powers in Europe are devising a code of aerial regulations and the United States and Mexico are formulating a treaty regulating the operation of machines on the border. Premiums are now up for flights from New York to Chicago and St. Louis and the journeys will be accomplished, too. Just how soon, probably depends upon how soon the navigators of the heavier than air machines decide to undertake the journey. Aviation in heavier than air machines is out of the experimental stage; it is "a success. Its complete development is the next step. Just how far this will go, nobody can say. It .has developed so rapidly in the'last few years, even the last few months, that nobody would be surprised at anything the future might bring out. But even now, the aeroplane is a force that must be reckoned with in war and in peace; as a smuggler it may become a menace; as an annihilator of forts and warships it already seems a possibility of great danger. o Taft may not say as much, but he can talk as much as any president we have ever had. Jack Johnson is reported as somewhat busy these days in his training camp, "but it is nothing to the way he is going to he engaged when he leaves the camp and gets into the ring with Jim Jeffries. Just because two Frenchmen crossed the English channel one way, an Eng lishman comes along and makes the round trip just to show them some real aviating. England and America now hold the aerial records. . o With judge Mechera in a good humor and feeling fit on June 13, things ought to be smooth sailing thereafter.

Kinyon, who was employed as a compositor on the Independent at the time it was run in this paper. Viewing the situation from a charitable standpoint, it would be difficult to accuse Mr. Kinyon of a lesser offense than being willfully absent minded.

Rhodes' Students At Oxford To Promote Peace For World AMERICANS TAKE REPARATIONS are being made for the 1910 examinations of appli- cants for scholarships at Oxford under the terms 'of the will of the late Cecil Rhode's, empire-builder, diamond king, and philanthropist. When he was only 24 vears of asre. Cecil Rhodes wrote his first will, an instrument which would do credit to one of ma ture years and extended experience. In this will he recited the fact that he was living for three objects. One of these was service to his country, the second was the betterment of the hu man race, and the last was the end of all wars. When he wrote his last will, making the munificent- bequest for the educa tion of selected men at Oxford, he had all three of these objects in mind. By its terms opportunity is afforded to about 200 young men to take a three years course at Oxford, one of the world's nlost ancient and greatest cen ters of culture. Of these it Is provided that two shall come from each state and territory in the United States, 15 shall come from Germany, and the rest from tne coioniss 01 tne moiner country scattered throughout the globe- World Peace by Scholarships. It was Rhodes's first intention that all these scholarships should go to the United States and the English colonies. The provision for the 15 from Germany was an afterthought, and was made in a codicil to his last will. His purpose in making this additional provision was In furtherance of his hope that at some future time the three great Teu tonic nations of the world the United States, England and Germany might establish a hegemony for the insurance of an abiding world peace. In this Rhodes was nearly a decade ahead of the latest advocates of such a world peace. When Andrew Carnegie re cently made his speech at the National Press club in Washington, he declared that no nation was better fitted to sit in judgment in its own cause than an individual was equipped for the hand ing down of a proper decision In a case "Where his own interests are at stake. Rhodes's Scholarship Conditions. It was the fond belief of Rhodes that he could have accomplished the same thing for which Carnegie and Root have been working by establishing these scholarships at Oxford. He was per suaded that as the Rhodes's scholars went out into the world of affairs, they would .constitute'the lltle leaven of in ternational friendship which would leaven the whole lump of world affairs. In order that this might be madee pos sible, his will laid down many interc epting and thoughtful tests that should b'e applied to the prospective applicants for scholarships. The Rhodes's student must be un married. He must have gone through at least the sophomore year in some recognized university. He must be be tween 19 and 25 years of age. And no mere bookworm need expect to com mand the 54500 a Rhodes's scholarship Is worth. Mr. Rhodes always felt that an influential mind needs a strong body to back it up, and therefore provided that every successful candidate should be interested In cricket r o:hor ath letics. Furthermore, he must have shown himself to be possessed of the manly virtues friendship for the op pressed, sympathy for the w.-ak and a desire to do something for his fellow men. Personal magnetism and well de veloped qualities of leadership, in con junction with fondness for athletics, count more in the Rhodes examination than the educational tests. United States Students Lead. Last year there were 179 Rhodes' stu dents "in residence" at Oxford. Ninty of these came from the United States, 78 from the English colonies, and 11 from the German empire. There were S3 students from the United States who i nad completed their courses at the be ginning of the present calendar vear. Eighty-two of these ha.ve returned to the United States, and have entered va rious vocations here; the others remain ed in England to engage in business there. Students Make Good. There has been much speculation in the educational world as to the outcome of the work instituted by Rhodes. Many promlnent educators have been Inclined to regard the scholarships in a not very favorable light. Some of them have' asserted that the Rhodes'- students have not made a great, record at the vener ablo English university. This criti cism has been made in America and In England as well. Others declare that such a conclusion can be reached only by a superficial examination, and that if the records of the Rhodes' students be studied Intelligently, it will be shown that they have not been found wanting. Law and Literature Attract. The Oxford law course has appealed to more of tho Rhodes' students than any other. Yet comparatively few of those who have taken the law cours? have ente'red directly upon the practice of that profession. The majority of them hold chairs of law and jurispru dence in American universities. Literature has been the second choice. Oats,- retail $2.00 per cwt. Texas oats, wholesale. .. .$1.80 per cwt.

LOOKING FOR A WOMAN WHO CAME HERE FJtOM DOUGLAS El Paso detectives have been looking for Mrs. Maud Wood", of Douglas, al leged to have bought eight finger rings valued at $50 from the Warren jewelry store on G. avenue and left town before they were paid for. The detectives say that she has been herb, as they traced her this far by a baggage check, but the address she gave was 1S9 San Francisco street. There is no such number on the street. Douglas papers report that the wo man has been arrestod in El Paso and an officer from that place oven came here, but was unable to locate the wo man and later left. CHARGED WITH COMMISSION OF A CRIME IN ISO.t Following the expiration of a three day sentence en a charge of drunken ness, Juan Ornate Rodriguez wa trans ferred to the county jail 'nursday afternoon following the ..i.ing of a complaint in justice Watson's court charging murder. The complaint was signed by detective George Harold, who testified that he had reason to believe and did bejeve that Juan Ornate Rod riguez did unlawfully kill and murder "French John" in 1S93. FOLK FOR PRESIDENT. St. Louis, Mo., June 3. At a banquet last nig it by a rising vote the banquet ers pleotged the support of the Democ racy of Missouri to Joseph W. Folk for the nomination to the presidency. Champ' Clark telegraphed that he is in no sense a candidate for the presidency. By Frederic J. Haskin LEAD i Theology has not had many pupils. VhiIe It may nor be- said that any of the retvmed scholars have as yet set the world on fire, it is yet fair to them to sa" ihat almost without exception they J avo entered upon careers of honor and rsefulness fully commensurate with tho hopes and ambitions of the man through whose bounty they attended Oxford. Graduates Have Organization. The American Rhodes' scholars have formed an alumni association, and they publish a quarterly magazine which tells of their whereabouts, their work and their prospects. The chapter of personals is one of the most Interesting features of the magazine, and the read ing of these personals discloses the fact that while they have become liberal enough to see the good that lies in Eng lish customs and English institutions, their American patriotism has suffered nothing, and they are by no means a "denationalized" set of young men. One of them is the international sec retary of the Y. M. C. A. Another rites that "in addition to 16 lectures a week, I have been taking part of the work of the head of my department while he was off lecturing to the uncul tured masses in the celluloid-collar belt of Arkansas." Another has been do ing excellent work as a field agent of the Geological Survey. From the South comes a message in which the writer states that he is a quiet parson with a marriage in pros pect. One scholar who settled in San Francisco has figured prominently in running down a gang of Chinese mur derers. Another tells that he is a rov ing worker with a shirt on his back and a bed under his arm. and an ad dress wherever he happens to be. Sev eral have taken up life insurance as a means of livelihood, but they expect to leave it for chairs in certain American universities. American Students Are Serious. When the first thirt3'-seven American schoiars started for Oxford, they sailed from Boston, and, in order to promote mutual Identification, they pinned vis iting cards on the lapels of their coats. When they got to Oxford they found a warm reception. Everybody seemed willing to give the Rhodes' Idea a fair trial, although some were skeptical of Its ultimate success. At one time, they seemed to be threatened with the han dicap of the bad name which sticks to a man through life once given to him. The newspapers were Inclined to over-plaj- the athletic end of the career of the Rhodes' scholars, and when they carried away more than two-thirds of the honors at the first field day after their arrival, the world was ready to conclude that they were more a set of athletes than a group of American stu dents. So widespread did this belief be come that the secretary of the Rhodes foundation wrote an article for an American magazine, in which he de clared that the Rhodes students wero serious and earnest and deserved the ex cellent standing they held in the schools of the university. Students from Each State. The American candidates for scholars are selected by local committees from each state. According to the terms of the bequest, the students are to be cho sen literally without reference to "race, color, or previous condition of servi tude." It has been provided by the trustees of the foundation that the stu dents are to be selected from either the state of domicile or of education, yet in most of the states only residents are held to be eligible, and the scholarship often is passed from one university to another in the state. Spend Vacations on the Continent. The atmosphere and the conditions of study at Oxford are vastly different from those at any American university. Much stress is laid on social Intercourse, which is one of the features of the work of the institution among its thousands of students. Very little time is given for reading during the scholastic year. The vacations are much longer than those in American universities, and it is expected that the Rhodes students will have so husbanded their annual allow- f ance of S10OO as to be able to spend the vacation season in Switzerland and elsewhere, where they are afforded op portunity to do the general reading that is precluded by the social custpms at Oxford. American Students Brighter. V Comparing the American Rhodes' stu dent with the others of the student body at Oxford, one of the leading teachers of the university declares that they are found to be brighter, to comprehend more readily the things with which they deal, but that they are somewhat more superficial than the average English student. This shows up more clearly at examination time than at any other pe riod in the course of their student ca reer. While the university man in the American schools takes his examina tions by piecemeal anl at different times in his scholastic year, Oxford holds back everything until the work is ended, and then the student Is required to undergo an extensive examination on his whole course.

Chrlstian Science Press Bureau DIs- eusses His Method of Cure. Houston, Tex., May 25, 1910. Editor El Paso Herald: In your issue of the 21st Inst, ap pears in large type an inquiry asking if a certain osteopathic physician of El Paso Is a Christian Scientist. To this I will say that a Christian Scientist is never a physical diagnostician; ho does not consult matter for a knowledge of man. The Christian Scientist accepts the statement made in the holy Bible that God is spirit and Is Infinite; that He is all, and that man was made in God's image and likeness. The,- likeness of spirit is spiritual. It is not matter; therefore, the Christian Scientist under stands" that man is spiritual, and never material. Disease as an experience of mortal man, has Its origin in the belief that life and intelligence exist in matter This belief was the Adam error which divine wisdom condemned, saying, "In the day that tj,ou eatest thereof thou shalt surely dleV JFhe Christian Science practitioner makes his investigations along the lines of mental phenomena, and traces every effort to mental causation.
