The re cent rains In the mountains east of here and on the mesas between here and the mountains, have caused the arroyas to come down and the flats in the neighborhood of the old Alameda place lust north of here are covered with water. The artificial lake so formed has proved an unusually attractive drawing card for numerous teal and mallard ducks, and the local hunters have been out each day to try their skill. " . So far, there have been no reports 01 any .killing, although every hunter who has gone to the place reports plenty of the feathered game. Th ducks, how ever are still very wild and it is al most impossible to get within shooting distance of them. t Quite a number of wild geese have also been seen around the flats in the neigh borhood of this lake, but they seem to be immune from shot and shell.

I think it is very good of you to give the. TV. C. T. U. a column once a week. It is certainly educational and as patri otic American citizens we ought to in form ourselves on this and all public questions so as to be able to vote in telligently and I believe most of our citizens will admit that the liquor traf fic is an evil that ought to be abolished but we differ as to just how to get rid of It.

These taxes were to be raised by an extended inheritance tax, which would fall on the land-owning class, by new methods of excise duties on spirits, wines, beer and tobacco; by taxes on electricity, gas, advertisements, real estate transfers, checks and fire insurance policies. All of these taxes fell most heavily upon the wealthy and middle classes. The result was that the reichstag re fused to pass the bill and the Imperial chancellor practically was forced to re sign his office.

El Paso has the com mission form of government and in the administration of the city affairs poli tics does not play such an important part as it did before the new form of government was adopted. Efficiency Is the first requisite. o JUAREZ KENO GAMES. -From El Paso Times. (Racetrack Gamb lers' organ). The Mexican government is bearing down on the Juarez keno games. It has levied a direct tax of 5 percent of the gross daily receipts of the games. "That means," said a man connected with the Juarez keno games yesterday, "that the Mexican government will col lect $500 in gold weekly from the two keno houses in Juarez. This in addition to the $360 per month which each of the houses is now paying to the city of Juarez, will make a big hole "In their earnings. "At the present time the two Juarez keno games are taking in about $1000 In gold per night for six nights' In the week and $4000 on Sundays, making a total of $10,000 per week. Under the law the games can only take out 15 percent, which gives each game about $750 gold per week, a mighty big profit for an investment of not more than $2000. "And 80 percent of the $520,000 that passes across the Juarez keno tables an nually comes from El Paso, and is paid in the main by wage-earners who could not afford to gamble if the ante was not so small. You see, they can play the game for 10 cents. But if they have the money they scarcely play less than three cards, which cost 30 cents, and their chance to win Is slim. The odds are 100 to 1 against each player." According to these figures, nearly $8 for each man, woman and child in El Paso goes annually to the Juarez keno games. These figures are startling, but a Times reporter was assured yesterday by one who knows, that they were cor rect. HERALD AND TOYAH OIL FIELD. From El Paso Business-Farmer.

As passed, the new taxes are levied practically altogether upon tea, beer, spirits and tobacco, and upon such a scale tha the tax will fall heaviest upon the cheaper grades of those ar ticles as consumed by the .working people. Real Etaies Stamp Tax. O fall the taxes proposed by the gov ernment bill to fall upon the land-owning classes, only one was left, and that was'a stamp tax upon real estate trans fer documents. But to offset this the landlords in the reichstag put Into the bill a provision paying a bounty to dis tillers of spirits, all of whom are land lords, by which of the new taxation more than $1,0,000,000 annually will be paid over to the landowners. Thus was illustrated the selfishness of the agrar ian Conservatives. They control the government and vote money for all sorts of Imperial extravagances, and then not only refuse to pay their jus.t proportion of the taxes but deliberate ly appropriate for themselves a large proportion of the new taxes they have levied upon the struggling workmen of their country. Tomorrow Newspapers and Public Opinion. Bia fire nsr a NEW VALLEY TOWN Window Casing of Eilpat rick Kesidence and a Car penter's Coat the Loss. The city of Canutillo has had its first big fire. The residence of J. B. Kilpat rick, one of (the first settlers in the val ley town and a pioneer citizen of Canu tillo, was totally destroyed by fire Tuesday. Spontaneous combustion is accused of being the guilty person who caused the Canutillo conflagration. Kilpatrick was building a rfew residence on his country estate up the Anthony road. A force -of one carpenter was engaged in the work, when the fire was discovered in the folds of the carpenter's coat, which had been rolled up and laid on a window sill in the sun The heat of the sun is thought to have Ignited the matches in the pocket of the coat. The loss to the carpenter and also to Kil. was a total one with no insurance. The window casings of the new Glen Kill residence and the greater part of Kllpatrlck's wearing apparel were de stroyed In the fire. course, the company issued strict or ders to the drillers to Keep the matter quiet and they were doing very nicely indeed, until The El Paso Herald smell ed a mouse (as it if,ten does In such cases) and Immediately sent its news editor to Toyah to look the "oil" situ ation over. The Texas company was guardins the well very closely, not allowing visit ors in for inspection or any suspicious characters on the ground. Consequent ly The Herald man found a very cold reception awaiting him, but by some I means of diplomacy he gained an en trance and immeditately after his ex- I amination of the well, the discovery of oil -xas announced, and the excite ment was on. Toyah and the section of country around there owe a great deal to The Herald for gaining entrance to that well and breaking the news to the pub lic The Texas company would have kept the whole thing "bottled up" un til they had gotten control of all tlia I land they wanted around Toyah, then prooamy would have "been satisfied and announced that its No. 1 (well was a 1500 barrel producer per day. If such a case had been allowed to happen, It would have been very fine indeed for the Texas company, and yes, for the southwest country, too, but think of the reproduction of the hog getting it all and and the pig getting some if he can. The discovery of oil In Toj-ah is one of the greatest things that could have happened in this southwest country.

Married Life Her Trip To tl office By No. 9 HELEN paused at the entrance of the subway, hesitated a few momenta and then turned back. "Why not stop in at "Warren's office while she was so near? She had come downtown to a jeweler's dn Maiden Lane to have a loose stone re set in one of her rings. "Warren had recommended that particular place as very reliable, and where there would be no danger of having the stones changed. And now, as she was about to take the subway on her- way back, the thought came that his office was only two blocks away. And it was just 12:30 "Warren could take her out to lunch eon. She had not been in the office since their marriage. Twice during their en gagement she had gone down. Once he had taken her and once she had sur prised him by calling unexpectedly. She remembered how pleased he had been how he had dropped everything and de voted 'himself to her, and then took her out to luncheon. She caught a glimpse of herself in the mirror of a s-hop window. She was look ing very weH, her trim tailored suit and dark blue hat, with its white wing was most jbecoming. She adjusted her veil, gave h. few needless little touches to her hair and hurried on. Delightful Anticipation. Her cheeks were delicately flushed with anticipation as she planned the surprise of her visit. He had a new stenographer who would not recognize her. She would not give her name; she would merely say: "A lady to see Mr. Curtis." And she pictured him coming out with a bored or indifferent expres sion which would change quickly to sur prise and pleasure when he saw her. The great office building loomed im pressively before her; an express ele vator, the long hall and she was at the door of Warren's office. A girl was buy at the typewriter, and through the half open door oft the private office came the sound of voices men's voices with boisterous laughter. "Is Mr. Curtis in?" "Your name?" the girl demanded curtly. "Just say a lady wishes to see Mr. Curtis." "You'll have to give your name," still more curtly. "Will you give my message to Mr. Curtis?" Helen demanded, feeling a strong, antagonism to this girl. "Not unless you give your name." Her manner was now almost insolent. He Came Out Frownlnsr. "Very well," Helen's eyes flashed as she said with much dignity: "You may tell Mr.. Curtis that Mrs. Curtis Is here. The giri stared at her even more de fiantly, aud then went into the private office. Warren came out frowning anxiously. "Anything happened?" "Why, no I just thought I'd come in while I was so near. I came down to have that stone reset." "Oh! "Well, you ought to have tele phoned me," brusquely. "I'm very busy just now." "I can wait," timidly. "I thought we might go out to luncheon." He frowned. "Couldn't think of it. And I haven't time to stand here talk ing either I've got some men in there now." He turned as though to leave her. E. W. KAYSER, Cashier F. B. GALLAGHER, Ass't Cashier. W. M.

"Nothing," indignantly, "except that you might show me at least some con sideration before that insolent girl. Couldn't you see she was sitting (there gloating over the way you greeted me I wanted to surprise you. I thought you'd be pleased," with a sob, "so I told her to say a lady wished to see you, and she insisted on my name, and " ""Why, of course; those are her or ders." "Oh, but she did It so insolently! And when I said Mrs. Curtis she stared at me so defiantly!" v ell. If you think you can come i down here and upset the discipline of my office you'd better stay at home. Miss Foster was perfectly riglyt. I've Instructed her to get the name of every one before announcing them." "But, Warren. It "was the way she did it the insolent way." Oh, nonsense. Your imagination al ways works overtime.
