Jimmy Gets His First Job
Is Now On List As a 'Newsie'
By N. M. "
Advertising; the City
SEVEN years ago a merchant opened up a small shop on a down town business
street in El Paso. He found $5 per month spent for advertising a very heavy
burden, but he knew the value of a good daily newspaper as an advertising
medium and he knew how to use his space to the best advantage. With The
Herald's help that merchant has grown and prospered until now he -spends as
much on the average in one fray as he spent in a whole month when he began
business only a few years ago.
The same kind of story could be told of many of El Paso's most successful
merchants who have built up their business with the help of advertising space in
The Herald. Many a merchant can be cited who spends today five to ten times
as much as he was spending for advertising only a few years ago. The proof of
their wisdom is in the record of their daily cash receipts.
Similar reasoning applies to the city of El Paso. The city may be considered
as a great mercantile establishment with the object of getting people into her
store and inducing them to buy her goods. El Paso is a city of nearly 40,000
people with upwards of $60,000,000 of wealth, that is, $60,000,000 of capital
invested. Yet this city, this great mercantile institution with an investment of
60,000,000, spends less per year in advertising than many a local merchant whose
capital does not exceed $50,000.
E Paso's expenditure for advertising runs from $1000 to $3000 annually,
and it is very difficult to raise funds for this purpose. Yet Seattle spends $75,000
& year, Portland $100,000, Buffalo $150,000, Des Moines $50,000, Dayton, 0.,
540,000, Spokane $60,000 Tacoma $30,000, Vancouver $30,000, Oakland $50,000,
San Antonio $25,000, San Angelo, Texas, a city of 10,000 inhabitants, $12,000;
Mineral Wells, Texas, not much more than a village, spends more than El Paso for
advertising every year; Boise Idaho, less than half our size, spends $15,000. Los
Angeles, Sacramento, Kansas City, San Diego, Salt Lake, Denver, and scores of

waist and a pair of linen trousers to
protect his miniature person from the
summer sun, Jimmy broke' Into jour
nalism just as the big presses were
beginning to hum the natal song of
thousands of Heralds.
Big eyed from the strange scenes and
stranger crowd that was around him,
Jimmy wormed his way through the
crowd of paper sellers who were wait
ing for their wares in the cool, back
room of The Herald building. James
presented his earnings of a 5 cent
piece to the man behind the circulation
desk, his name was entered at the foot
of the long list of Jimmies and John
nies and Juans and (loses. He was
then escorted outside '.the pale of the
pressroom and told to await his turn
with the rest of the sellers.

circulation men distributed the papers
to the scampering boys as their names
were called and they darted through
the opening for their papers. A "half

El Paso family, was shoved back to
the foot of the line, where his minority
in the business of disseminating the
news had placed him. But wonder over
came awe and Jimmy was soon back
at the crack in the gate where he could
see the operation of supplying half a
hundred juvenile news dealers with pa
pers when they were all wanting them
at the same time.
Finally the circuation clerk called out
"Jimmy," and with an instant's hesita
tion, as if he was not sure of his own
name, Jimmy pitty patted up to the
desk in his bare feet to receive the
papers due him by reason of the cash
deposit already made.
Grabbing his first papers tightly in
his chubby fist, he made a run for the
rear door and disappeared in the crowd
of newsboys already swarming over
the business district, crying "Her-ald"
at the top of their shrill voices. Jimmy

A worked-up .agitation might have
clone one of these things, or even two,
but it could not have done them all.
England may be mistaken, yet
England, from Land's End to John
O'Groats, is convinced that Germany
is preparing to challenge the British
championship of the sea. It be
lieves that Germany will make the pre
text for war when it Is ready to
strike. There Is no confidence in
Germans Build Ships.
The fact that the German shipyards
are constructing battleships of the
Jreadnought and super-Ireadnought
clesses -with a rapidity not to be ex
ceeded even in England; the fact that
the great Krupp works at Essen are
manufacturing huge uns at a rate
never before attained in any country;
the fact that the acceleration of the
German naval program was for a long
time a successfully guarded secret;
the fact that the German expenditures
on the navy are being pushed forward
despite threatened revolt against
taxation; the fact that German ambi
tions for the world dominion crop out
in every German utterance; these things
are the things that count.
England is drifting, unintentionally
perhaps, even half unconsciously, into
a war with the most powerful military
state the world has yet seen. Against
the superbly disclplinsd and perfect
ly equipped German army of four mil
lion well fed and prosperous sons of I

Elbe work day and night on the bat- ,

Aords, to place the trident in the Ger- ,
man fist. The Krupp factory at Es- !
sen. the largest and most complete In- I
dustrial plant on earth, is working '
night and day forging the huge guns ,
which are destined, perhaps, to aid .
Germania to rule the waves.
The Englishman accepts the fact that
he is superior to all other human be
ings as naturally as he accepts the
fact that the Thames flows through
London to the sea. Lord Curzon not
long ago wrote a book on the Prob
lems of the Far East and he dedicat
ed it "To those who pelieve with me
that the British 'empire Is, under
Providence, frhe greatest instrument
for good the world has ever seen",
There are few Englishmen who would
not feel that the decicatlon was a
personal compliment. "JVhen people be
lieving such exalted things of them
selves are brought face to face with
the possibility of national extinction,
then indeed the situation is serious.
It must not be forgotten, in apprais
ing the situation, that party politics
has played a considerable part in the
agitation of the German danger. But
this only serves to. aggravate the seri
ousness of the problem. The Con
servative party, under the leadership
of Mr. Balfour, is the heir of all the
traditions of three centuries of Tory
tactics. When things get too hot at
home, the Tory policy is to stir up a
foreign question and endeavor to unite
the country to their support by appeals
to patriotism. This policy has saved

It was Thomases custom to spend
Sunday In peacefully gardening the
strip of ground behind the house. He
was an excellent gardener, and had
taken several prices for his potatoes
and peas. He took his spade and went
out to the potato bed to forget his
sorrows in v digging. The collar stud
burst, and, for a time, he was almost
bappy, till Mrs. Thomas ' shrieked at
him from the kjtchen window. '
"What are. you doing? You come in

A Wasteful Waiting; Policy
THIS valley should have been developed years ago through the pumping process.
It is not too late now to put in pumping plants on lands where the crops
are valuable and require much water. There is danger of much loss this
year through the partial failure of water at the critical time, which might have
been wholly averted if there had been pumping plants in reserve to provide one
irrigation at the right time.
Ten percent interest on the total investment necessary to provide a pumping
plant would not exceed in the case of the individual fanner $100 or $200 per year.
The loss of one cutting of alfalfa on 10 acres is greater than the total cost of
carrying the investment in a pumping plant adequate to supply 100 acres or more.
.Our shortsighted policy in this valley has easily cost us $100,000,000 in the last
It is just as absurd now as it ever wasr to sit down and "wait for the dam."
The thing to do is to get practical farmers onto the land and to bring the land into
cultivation. It is from this source that we must expect to derive our principal
wealth and means of development.
All other resources of El Paso will become comparatively insignificant beside
the profits that will accrue from the thorough development of our agricuultural

Through service has been started on the Parker cutoff between Phoenix and
Los Angeles, by the Santa Fe road. The result is that Phoenix is just 204 miles
closer tq Los Angeles (and almost that much further from El Paso so far as trade
purposes go). El Paso will have to boost some for the Southwestern line to
Phoenix, if she hopes to get any of that Salt River valley trade, and it is worth
going after. Phoenix is almost a suburb of Los Angeles now. Trains leaving
Phoenix at 6 at night, reach Los Angeles next mornfhg at 7:30, so that Phoenix

A little work all the time on all the streets will do wonders to keep them in
good condition. Many of the uest unpaved streets in the city are covered right
now with loose scattered rocks that will break them up in a short time if left, to
lie there, making extensive and costly repairs necessary. The street improvement
work is costing a good deal of money and it needs more efficient inspection than
it has had recently. '.

"You leave it all to me," Harvell said
Thomas left the windpw open, and
retired to bed. feeling like a criminal
of the deepest dye. Fortunately, Mrs.
Thomas was a heavy sleeper, and it was
not till next morning that she discov
ered the theft. Harvell had certainly
done the thing thoroughly, for, as well
as the trousers, Thomas's two' treasured
prize cups, a bottle of whisky and a
collection of choice seeds had vanished.
Loud were Mrs. Thomas's lamenta
tions. Thomas, too, began to see that
the path of double-dealers is hard, for,
when he suggested to Harvell that the
joke had been carried far enough, and
that all the property, barring the trou
sers, should be restored, Harvell merely
"If anything comes back, your missus

fully. "Better let well enough alone."
Then he demanded the shears and peas,

parcel and a beatific smile.
"I've got a surprise for you. Alfred,"
she' announced. "As I was going along
