The Value Of Appearance Lord Chasterfield said: "The art of 1 pleasing is the art of rising, of distin guishing one's self, of making a figure and a fortune In the world." No policy pays like politeness. Fine manners have often given scoundrels the entree of good society. The best positions are not always filled by the most capable men, but very often by men of average ability, who know how to return smiles for insults, maintaining a gentlemanly bearing when annoyances are crowding. History Is full of examples of men who have owed their advancement to a pleasing personality. "Witness Shaks pere's graceful appearance before Eliza beth. Marimeau, ugly of feature, al most repulsive physically yet with his politeness, won all the women of Paris. THE city would not make a mistake in spending considerable money from year to year, as the funds allow, to make Washington park more beautiful. To anyone who visited the park on the Fourth of July, it was apparent that the people appreciate the park; it is an attractive place where they can go ana be free to have a good time in the jure air and the shade. The other parks of the city are big enough for downtown breathing spots, but thev are not picnic spots. Washington park is a pleasant picnic place, covered with shade trees, the earth overgrown with grass, the birds singing in the boughs J George "Washington saluted his body servant as courteously as lie aia tne highest officer upon his staff. History does "honor to the grand pld name of-j gentleman. jThere are people who are never po lice except upon compulsion. These are the people you find in the same places 10 years from now that ithey are in to day. Rudeness is a boomerang which returns and strikes yourself. Sarcastic remarks, ungenerous criticisms, un gracious manners these are the things that create prejudice against a man, close hearts and bar doors against him. and the flowers exhaling their odor on each breath of air. But the walks are in poor repair, the shrubbery is not kept as neat as it should be, and the park gen erally shows lack of attention. This park is a heritage of which the people should and do feel proud- It is an sset of the city that is inestimable in value. By spending a few hundred dol lars to put the walks in better condition the walk alongside the exhibition hall is several inches -deep in dust the park could be made much more attractive. Washington park should be El Paso's playground, where everybody can go and get the air and have a touch of country life, a rest under the shade of the trees. It is worth keeping up in good shape. , T Herman Klein, an EngKsh musician and writer who has spent 10 years in Hew York, has gone back to England and written a book about "unmusical New York." He admits that other cities all over-the United States are musical and possess a cultivated artistic sense, but New York he sizes up to perfection when he says it is the "city cf huge fees and tempting salaries where success can be rapidly achieved with the aid of a neatly executed boom and an enterprising press agent, a place where they pay for reputations rather than musical merit." . o El Paso seems to have been one of the very few localities in the world where & good view of Halley's comet was obtainable. In almost every corner of the uni verse the complaint is made that at no time was the tail of the comet plainly vis ible or of any considerable length. In El Paso for the last few days before the comet left the morning sky the tail extended one-third to one-half the' way across the dome of the heavens- So far as El Paso is concerned, the comet certainly came up to its press notice. A distinguished judge reprimanding a young lawyer who prided himself upon his adriotness in confusing a witness, and his ability in bullying on cross-ex amination, said: "My young friend, be- I fore you ar-e as old as I am, you will learn that it Is about as well to read Chesterfield as Blackstone. Glib tongues and uncouth manners have been the un doing of many lawyers, who forget that the really great pleaders have had win ning personalities that their fine man ners were the surest passports to popu larity and the open sesame to permanent advancement. Sitting in his office a great merchant questioned a boy who sought a position. "Can you write a good hand?" "Yaais." "Are you good at figures?" "Yaas." "Very well, I don't yant you. I will not have a boy in my store who has not sufficient civility to say 'yes sir' and 'no sir.' " The boy was all right hon est, industrious, came highly recom mended. But the merchant's experience showed that common civility was a nec essary accomplishment In a 'successful clerk. Tour going back to a clerk to make purchases again and again de pends upon the polieness with which he served you. The rules of politeness are frequently violated by love of jesting. Some men would sacrifice a friend for a joke. Most people would, do well to heed this ad vice: "Above all doing's raillery decline, TIs In the ablest hands a dangerous tool, But never fails to wound the meddling fool; For all must grant it needs no com mon art To keep men patient when you make them smart Neither wit alone nor humor's self will do, ("Without good nature, and prudence. too) To judge aright persons, place and time; For taste decrees what's low, and what's sublime." with big guns of long range. When that time comes the British supremacy of the teas is no longer to be accepted as 'a matter of course. This docs not take into account how ever, the British colonial naval plans, which have not yet crystalized. It may be that action will be taken in time to add three or four other Dreadnoughts to this list, representing Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Can ada. In passing, it may be mentioned that the high British admiralty authori ty responsible for all these figures expresses the belitf that the Japanese program as published probably falls far short of the actual facts. Jupaii Also Uusj. If the American navy would keep pace with the Japanese in the matter of Dreadnoughts, it is believed in London that the Washington naval pro gram must be increased from two to At the bneinniner of this vear there -ivfire 15 hnttlr-shirw at th rrofirlnnurrht ! four Ships a year, and super-Dreadnought class in com- J Interesting as this may be to the minion.

At the end of this year the total will be al most doubled, reaching 21. ' Of thes"e there will be 10j British, five German, four American and two Japanese. Many Ships Under Construction. If ships now building are completed on schedule time, the end of 1911 will see no less than 40 of these huge fight ing machines afloat; 14 under the Brit- j the.se nations, who must pay from 10 to 14 million dollars for each one of these ships placed in commission, tak ing no account of the cost of maintain ing them, and disregarding the scores Of older 10 million dollar ships made obsolete.- National Bankruptcy Impending. Thus the fear of the Dreadnought chills two great political worlds that international circle in which war is ish flag1, nine under command of the ! always imminent, and that domestic German Emperor, -six under the Stars and Stripes, six under the Rising Sun political circle in which the question of taxation is always uppermost.

At that time the C7 Dreadnoughts will be divided; 20 British. 13 German, eight American, seven Japanese, eight French, four Russian, two Austrian, two Italian, two Brazilian and one Ar gentine. By the end of 1913 Germany probably will have caught up with Great Britain in the race and each na tion will have 22 mammoth ships armed tions. You may call it national in surance, that is perfectly true; but it Is equally true that one half of the national revenue of the great countries of Europe is being spent on what are after all, preparations to kill each other. Surely the extent to which this expenditure has grown really becomes a satire and a reflection upon civili zation. Not in our generation, per haps; but if it goes on at the rate at which it has recently increased, sooner or later, I believe, it will submerge MARIA The Herald's By Henri Bejar Daily Short Story Death Lurks In Tortillas, Tamales and Ice Cream Filth and Disease Surround Preparation of Many of These for Market. By Miss H. Giace Franklin, Director the "Woman's Charity Association School for Mothers The constitutional conventions in both territories should certainly be non partisan. The framing of the constitutions should be left to the brainiest men 1 garden, a small in the territories ana they should not all be lawyers "either, but a plentiful supply of plain business men with conservative, modern ideas. Every effort should be made to keep the constitutions from becoming mere compilations of laws, and to Sevote them to fundamentals on which statutory enactments can be based. o j. Generally speaking, any manufacturing enterprise should succeed in this city nnder conservative management, which undertakes to supply the staples of com mon consumption in the towns, mining camps, and ranches of the southwest. No sew manufacturing enterprise should try to manufacture specialties or fancy j-oods, but rather to meet the steady, regular demand for staple articles. o Whatever may be done about the new insurance rates, the city itself should make the necessary changes to reduce the key rate. The cost will be comparatively small and the saving to all policy holders will be tremendous. As to most of the accessary changes, there is no excuse for delay. o The Water Question WHY does the city council longer delay settling the water question by closing the deal which the people have twice ratified at open election? Mere delay can be of no advantage. If the city council has any sup plementary proposition to submit to the water company, it can be submitted now as well as later on As long as the matter remains in its present unsettled condition, the city is exposed to a real menace, and the people are paying out enormous sums in expensive fire insurance, which would be reduced by making improvements in the plant. Plans for the baby sanatorium at Cloudcroft are progressing steadily. The railroad company has donated the entire block on which the old lodge stood. This will make an ideal site for the sanatorium. It is the finest work El Paso has ever undertaken. The heart of the people goes into the building, not mere concrete and lumber. It will stand as a living testimonial to the divine atttribute in mankind. By the way, if Ballinger resigns, why would it not be a good idea to appoint cxpresident Roosevelt as secretary of the interior? President Taft has repeatedly yaid that he favors all of Theodore Roosevelt's conservation policies. There is no doubt that CoL Roosevelt would make an excelsnt administrator for this "big de- I partment which comes so closely in touch with the general public The big colonization and land companies that are working in the north to direct the stream of immigration to Texas have not yet had their interest enlisted in this end of the state. We are neglecting our opportunities in a most costly fashion by not pushing our claims to a fair share df the capital and of the immi gration that are pouring into Texas. ' o Statewide prohibition, whether by statute or free constitutional amendment, is not a wise policy for Texas to adopt at this time. High license, regulation, and local option local option by counties, cities, and precincts constitute the wiser policy. o There was a meeting at Sweetwater the other night in the interest of Cone Johnson, the prohibition candidate for governor. Rain threatened and the cold water adherents most inconsistently stayed at home. . i Curiously enough it is in this Democratic state, where theories of decentraliza tion and personal liberty abound, that restrictive and interfering legislation is most common. o During June Tucson had 22 days upon which the thermometer registered over 100 degrees, and on every one of those days the people were far more comfortable than they would have been in Hew York or St. Louis with the thermometer at 85. o El Paso has more firstclass buildings under erection at this time than any other city of equal size in the United States. It is the best proof that could be had of the prevailing confidence in the city's stability and rich promise. (t El Paso needs more producing industries more smokestacks and dinner pails. We have lived off our own fat long enough. Old Hendryck was a smuggler living in a little house on the Belghui fron tier. Behind the house was a vegetable orchard, and just enough pasture to Keep a -cow and three sheep. Inside the, house was his daughter, a j pretty barefooted maid of 16, and a big wolflike dog, Medor. It was not without reason that old Hendryck had bought the big dog, for Maria's mother had died when her daughter was only a baby, and the girl was very often left alone for many days while her father was away on his dangerous ex peditions, and where there is a pretty girl adinirerw are neverfar off. The old smuggler was not a very hos pitable person, and the only man who ever entered the house was strangely enough a custom officer, Pierre Ar- mand, a cousin of Maria's mother, who had known the girl ever since she was born. Years passed. Maria was now 17, and though Pierre felt as young as when he was 20, he was nevertheless 3S vears old. As Pierre passed the house one morn ing, he saw Maria standing In the brook undor the blooming "apple tree. A ray of the sun fell through the pink blos soms and lent her hair a golden splen dor. "With both hands she was holding up her skirt, while she looked at the water running around her bare ankles. She was enjoying the cool freshness of the water, but as she heard the sound of Pierre's footsteps she turned her head with a happy smile and cried: "I am coming! I am coming!" "When she reached him she drew him inside the house, threw her arms around his neck and kissed him as she had al ways been used to do. For the first j time Pierre noticed her red, full lips. and as she sat on his lap with her arm3 around him, he trembled and realized that it was no longer a little girl, but a grown-up maiden he had on his lap. He pushed her away gently and she asked In surprise: "What is the matter? What have I done?" He -was very pale, and asked her for a drink of water. Just then Hendryck entered, and Pierre Armand said gruffly: "Ireally think it is about time you told Maria not to run around barefooted." Hendryck evidentlv guessed what was taking place in Pierre's mind, for a wicked gleam came Into his eyes and he smiled with hi? ugly toothless mouth as he answered: "Oh. Maria Is not yet IS. but yon may be right after all. If any of her admirers should get too troublesome T have my gun, and will shoot any one who tries to Insult her." Pierre shuddered. After that day Maria had to consent to wear shoes and stockings. Her dress was made longer, anfcl she wore her hair Sin a knot on the top of her head. though it felt so heav3 that she could hardly stand it. Pierre "was greatly surprised as he saw the change, and he suddenly real ized as she, as usual, kissed' him fu'l on the lips, that he was in love with the girl he had always looked upon as a mere child. In love in spite of his 40 years and the fact that his hair -was already turning gray at the temples. As well as he could he struggled against his love, but in vain. Her face was always before Irim as he wandered aimlessly about through" field and for est, until at last he threw himself down, buried his face In the fallen leaves and cried because of his own weakness. After each attack he thought hlmelf strong enough to meet Maria again, but as soon as she was near him he felt awkward and embarrassed, and his own voice sounded strange to him. Maria tried hard to understand what had made him change so, but it was her own father who gave her the key of the mystery by exclaiming one day: "I really think Pierre has fallen in lOTe." In love! Yes, of course, it must be that. Pierre was thinking of getting married. She felt faint at the thought that Pierre cared for anotheij woman, and It seemed as if all joy had suddenly gone out of her life, for now she was to lose the only being in the world she had evor cared for. She ran out into the noods and cried bitterly. One day, about a week later when Pierre and Maria were sitting alone in the house, he looked straight into her eyes until she cast them down. Then he stood up, took her sweet little face between his hands, though she tried to turn it away, and he saw that the tears were running down her cheeks. "Pierre, when are you to be mar ried?" He understood her question immedi ately, kissed her eyes and lips, and said: "Soon with you if you are will ing." Then It was really true that they loved each other, and that the difference In age was nothing to her. "When they parted they were engaged. "I am going to see your father about it tomorrow, when he comes back," said Pierre. That night as Pierre was sitting In the guards' room, he heard the sound of angry voices, and a moment later a customs soldier entered and reported: ""We have caught old Hendryck red handed trying to smuggle In lace and tobacco. He wants to speak to you." "Let him come in." Hendryck came in and looked at Pierre with an evil expression in his ugly face. "Your soldiers have captured me," he sneered, 'and I know I am to be sent to prison, but as you are command here, the matter may be smoothed over. I know you are In love with Maria. I have, known it before you knew it your self, and it was my intention to refuse to consent to your marriage, but I will do so if you will let me go." Pierre was unable to say a "word. The room was In a whirl, and before his eyes he saw a golden-haired head, a sweet little face with rosy lips and heard the anxious voice: "Pierre, when are you to be married?" It was a terrible struggle, but at last he commanded: " "Take Jean Hendryck to the prison." Then he sat down to write his report. The next morning Pierre had disap peared and never returned. Maria almost lost her mind from grief. Twenty years have passed since then. Herdryck is dead long ago, but poor Maria is sitting alone In. the little house waiting for Pierre Armand, who never returns. In looking over Asancion's card I find that she made her first call at the dispensary June 9th. We all doubt less remember June 9th, f-c-r it was as warm as it was July 5th, and we all remember July 5th was 101 degrees. Was it hot? Perhaps you did not find It so sitting in some cool room, drink- ing iced drinks, but I assure you it was hot and smelly, very smelly, on the south side. Out of all this heat and smell, came little Asenclon (Juanita as her family affectionally call her) ana Juanita was warmer than the day. Just think back to 101 degrees in the shade and imagine typhoid fever tongue all coated, causing that "dark brown" taste In your mouth, pain In your abdo men, nose bleeding, and oh, such a headache and so warm and you will then have a faint Idea of how Juanita felt. She had been ill eight days and her mother had been unable- to secure a doctor. Not knowing why Juanita was sick she let her walk one-half mile to the dispensary. She was examined by Dr. Kluttz and treatment ordered. She smiled with her beautiful gray eyes and seemed so com fortable and happy as her heavy clothes were removed and just a sheet covered her. We kept her on the examining table until the mother secured a per ambulator to take her home. Juanita has been rolled into the examining room every Tuesday, Thursday and Sat urday, and every Monday, Wednesday and Friday she has been visited in hei home. Yesterday she was allowed to take 15 steps, today slys is to take 25, disease germs fill the air and this same ice cream carried through the streets and sold by a man perhaps tubercular or sj'philitic Juanita is fond of Ice cream, and Juanita spent every penny she could secure for Ice cream and I believe In doing so she purchased a good supply of typhoid baccllli. Again I say, prevention. Let us not wait to cure; let us prevent the spreaa of disease by making it almost impos sible for an unclean man or woman to manufacture these things. Think how much Juanita's illness has cost this community milk, water, Ice, medicine, meat and clothing. Had there been no ice cream vendor Juanita would have been well. The city Is looking into the huck sters's trade; let's put these other ven dors on the list. Require a license and then weekly inspection of the plant and wherever there is a violation re voke the license. Also require every store, selling milk, to secure a license and put the store on the Inspection list that civilization. The burden already shows Itself in the national credit, sooner or later it must lead to national bankruptcy." While thus deploring the ruinous competition of the nations. Sir Edward urey goes on to state the British po sition: "If we alone among the great powers gave up the competition and sank into a position of Inferiority, what good should we do. None what ever; no good to ourselves, because we cannot realize great Ideals of so cial reform at home when we are hold ing our existence at the mercy, at the caprice, if you will, of another nation. That Is not feasible. If we fall Into a position of inferiority our self-respect is gone. We should fall Into a state of apathy: we should cease to count for anything among the nations of Eu rope; and we should be fortunate If our liberty were left and we did not become the conscript appendage of some stronger power. That is a brutal way of stating the case, but it is the truth." This was spoken, be it remembered, by the chief diplomatic officer of the British Empire, a man belonging to the peace party, a man never ranked with the jingoes, a man who strongly op posed In Parliament the proposals of the exteme naval party. The leaders of the other party, the Conservatives, are a hundred times more pessimistic and emphatic In their statements, ex cept that they do not say so much about the burden of taxation. Xavy ExpcHditHre Aston-dins:. Great Britain s expending nearly $200,000,000 a year for its navy. Ger many and the United States come next with approximately $125,000,000 each. The British army costs $140,000,000, and the German army $200,000,000. The American army costs a little over $100,000,000. In Great Britain and Ger many these immense sums of money are raised largely by direct taxation, the burden of which Is felt by every per son. In the United States the principle of direct taxation for federal purposes is only on the threshold of possibilities. The American republic Is so"' much richer, so much more populous and so much, more extravagant by nature that its people do not so keenly feel the burden of this taxation.

I do, for I want to tell you about the dirty little stores,- the ice cream vendors for the Mexicans all seem to have the ambition to be merchants. You will see tiny little stores everywhere, candy stands and the boys and men walking unclean, unsanltarv stores. There is 1"5"1 lllfea J zaey are re nn article of f.i co .,-. -L yarded as luxuries. The taxation is nated. Why Is Infant Mortality Hlsh? Why is the infant doath rate so great? Unclean milk plays its part and proper supervision of the milk supply to the homes of the south side will in great part reduce the figure. Every store in New York that dis penses milk must secure a license from the health department and before the store is allowed to sell milk the pro prietor must put up a large booth, -o upper half of which is glass. There is a tin pipe extending from the ceiling of the booth, through the store, to the outside air; the door of the booth Is directly opposite the pipe and thus good ventilation is obtained. Nothing is kept in the booth except the milk and it is kept In milk cans in tubs of ice. Do you want to stamp out disease? Just add the above to the sewer sys tem and we will have a cleaner and healthier south side. Let us all join hands and aid Dr. Anderson in his efforts for a clean south side.
