V$& It. 97 Miiiaiii"'"' Watching the REPORTS published in The Heraia today show some laxity in the enforcement of the anti-gambling laws and the saloon regulations. The point to be emphasized is that unceasing vigilance is the price of protection against the excesses of the gambling element. The gambling going on in this city in con section with pool games and cigar counter raffles may not be regarded as very serious in itself at this time, but small infractions of the law tolerated by tho public authorities and by the people in general are bound to lead to greater in fractions, finally entrenching the evil of gambling so strongly that a big fight is necessary to dislodge it. It is undeniable that a gambling element of considerable strength is being Attracted here by the races, keno games and other Juarez institutions. It is not to be expected that the gamblers are going to confine their operations to the other de of the river. They will make every effort to get a foothold in this city of 40,000 people. Unless the decent element in El Paso combines in a strong organ ization to protect the city, 'one thing will lead to another, and before we know it we shall have a powerful lawless element in this city to deal with. "When the first advances are made toward violating the anti-gambling laws or saloon regulations, or on the part of the authorities towards tolerating such violations, then is the time to take action swift and sure to put the lawless element on notice that relentless prosecution will follow every known infraction of the law. One of the worst features of the present situation is that young boys 'are not only permitted to loiter around the pool rooms in the neighborhood of saloons, but they are actually being taught to gamble in these places. The effect on the younger generation, if .such conditions continue, will be to impair the moral sense, and to make such weaklings much less valuable as producers. The idea that a man can get along in this world without giving a fair equivalent for what he gets is only one step removed from the notion that highway robbery is one way to make an lionest living. , ,. $. - Readers should carefully distinguish between the different kinds of pool rooms mentioned from time to time in the newspapers. The pool rooms mentioned in the article in today's Herald, where the game of pool or the game of billiards may be played on special tables constructed for the purpose,4 mut not be confused with the "pool room" so often referred to in the perpetual fight against racetrack gambling, such pool rooms being places where racing pools or "books" are written and bets received on the race horses running at distant tracks. The two kinds of pool rooms have no necessary connection with each other, but as a matter of fact racing pools or books are often written in places where the game of pool is played, simply because these places afford convenient quarters for the congregation of the socalled sporting element. Common business sense will lead El Pasoans to fight public gambling in every onn in which it may show itself. The various organizations of business men have already combined to discourage the playing of keno across the river by wage earners and clerks from this side. The money that goes over the keno tables is practically all diverted from the chanaifc of honest business in El Paso. We are the losers, and the dollars and cents argument is driving El Paso business men into undertaking an aggressive movement in self defence. The same reasoning applies to gambling in El Paso no matter what form it may take. Any employe handling money who habitually gambles even in a small way shows h'msplf to be untrustworthy and he must be watched if his employer wishes to guard against thievery and. inefficiency. Public gambling is in every way detrimental to, good order and is a heavy tax on legitimate industry. In the train of this crime follow many others, and the presence of gamblers attracts others of the worst class any community has to deal with. It is the business of the law and the lawfully constituted authorities to pro tect the weak against the consequences of their folly and the families of the vicious against the consequences of the vice of their rightful wage earners. The Herald's sole object in publishing the observations of its representatives diking a little tour around the city is to direct attention to the general subject and enable the people, if they wish, to take steps to combat a tendency against laxity in law enforcement. If the Citizen's league be revived, as has been proposed, it will be in position to take active steps in preventing the opening of race gambling pools or books on this side of the river. That is an evil of the most serious nature, which must never be allowed to gain the least foothold in this city. All these other things, of minor importance in themselves, are quite signifi cants indicating a tendency towards carelessness. Governor-elect Colquitt has promised great things in the way of promoting material development in Texas. There is no way hy which he can make himself solider with the people than hy inaugurating a new era of industrial progress through legislative and executive common sense. The repeal of the I. & G. N. hill and the thorough revision cf the Robertson law relating to life insurance com panies will he an earnest of good faith. Then take the embargo -off mineral pros pecting, reestablish the mineral survey, revise the land laws to promote coloniza tion, and fairly readjust taxes of public service corporations, and Texas will leap forward. o The Most Practical Program STATEWIDE prohibition for the various states did not make many converts at the recent election. Local option by counties, by cities, and by precincts or even smaller subdivisions in cities, with high license, strict regulation, and efficient control, comprise the most practical program for reducing the evils of the liquor traffic nnder present day conditions. No single state is in "position to enforce prohibition, and the country is cer tainly not ready for action by the national government to prohibit the trans portation of liquor, or tax it out of existence. Until the time comes for national action or perfect cooperation amongall the states with uniform enforcement of uniform laws, the statewide prohibitidn idea cannot be successful unless in states where public sentiment is practically unanimous in that direction. Among the railroaders on the Santa Fe payroll at San Marcial, N. M., are four women, two -Mrs. and two misses. The Santa Fe has a good many women in its employ throughout -the system, and itMlidn't require any suffragette cam paign to bring it about either. t In all the republics of the three Americas there is scarcely a large city from which the United States might not profitably learn much regarding civic beauty.

IT "WAS- . fine, sunny evening, and Mr. Tadger sat at the open win dow of"his shoD hammering nail ,'after nail and stud after stud into a huge boot, till it looked as If It had been armour-plated. A shadow fell athwart the window, and Mr. Tadger glanced up from his work. He saw a gaunt youth watching him with intense Interest "That's somethin as Is worth lookln at P.zra Jukes," saldMr. Todg er, holding up the boot and gazing at It almost affectionately. "It Is, Mr. Tadger.'' There was a pause, and Mr. Tadger intently surveyed the boot to see if he could find a vacant space for one more nail. Suddenly Ezra Jukes coughed in an. embarrasedd way, and said: "You know a terrible deal about marriage, Mr. Tadger?" "There's no man within five, nr p'r'aps ten, mile o' 'ere knows more about matrimony than me. I've 'ad one 4two three wives." Mr. Tadger em phasized each figure by a tap with his hammer. "I'm finding It a bit awkward to pick one," proceeded the youth. "You see, Mr. Tadger, my mother says I ought to, marry one o' them Maddox girls. They'll all 'ave a bit o money, an" they're not so bad lookln'." "You might do worse," returned Mr. Tadger. "A bit o' money 's an advan tage with a woman. My first 'adn't a penny, but I made no mistake about two and three. "But I likes all .three of the Maddox girls," said the youth, pathetically. "It'd be trigamy if you married 'cm all at once," said the cobbler, seri ously. "Why not take 'em one at a time? You may marry the lot before you've done with 'em. Look at me! "But even then I can't make up my mind which I'd like to start with, Mr. Tadger. You see, Mary's the tallest, and Bessie's the fattest, and Grace 's the voungest. Now, I likes a girl to be plumD, but I don't want er short, and I'd sooner 'aye a young one than a old onp." - r "You tos up for It," suggested Mr. Tadger. " "I shouldn't feel anyways comfort able which ever way the toss went. I'd he sure to want the one I 'adn't. So I've come to you. Mr. Tadger, as a man understanndin' marriages, an a moT, -with mind that every one looks i up to just to see if you could 'elp me to tell which one o the lot I really wants." Mr. Tadger looked up shrewdly at the youth. "It's a great pity that I ain't got a pair o' new boots in 'and. When I'm doin' a bit of 'igh-class work my mind gets igh-class accordln. I've 'ad thoughts when I've been makin a pair o new boots as the rector 'Imself 'd 'ave been proud of." "I've been thlnkln' for long enought that I wanted you to make me a pair," began Mr. Jukes eagerly. "It'd be almost again my conscience to make you one pair," replied the shoemaker. "If I made you one pair you'd get so mighty fond of 'em that you'd wear 'em day In and day out. Now, boots is like folk they needs rest. If I makes you two pair, an you wears 'em change about, they last thrco times as long as one pair. I'll measure you for 'em now. Ezra. If your wife, when yo gets 'er, suits you 'alf as well as my boots you'll 'ave a lot more "appiness i' marriage than" most men get." Whenever Mr. Jukes passed the shop during the week. Mr. Tadger nodded significantly at him. At last, on Sat urday evening, he beckoned the youth to him. "Listen" to me. Ezra. When you're out with the three of 'em which one does you put your arm round?" "Well. I'm sort o' merry-go-round in a way o' speakin'," replied the youth. "I'll 'ave a arm round two of cm an' they'll take It 1' turns to be the odd woman out. "Well, which one are you most jeal ous of?

Beauty of expression lasts till old age, wjhereas coloring fades and fea tures gradually change.

Healthful, sensible living will help a long way toward a good complexion. Content will give you a sweet expres sion. If you are a wise woman, you will do yoir best to gain both complex Ion and expression. Men admire a straight carriage and good figure in a woman. We do not live in Africa, so It is not necessary to weigh over 200 pounds to gain admira tion from the opposite sex. But. don't wear yourself out In the effort' to get thin. . Take a moderate amount of exercise and eat reasonably, and that is as much as It ! wise or safe to do. Many women lose their health and never regain It in their mad pursuit of slhnness. To be beautiful you must be happy and you must be healthy. Don't forget that. The Herald's Daily Short Story Mr. Jukes stared at Mr. Tadger. "I shouldn't mind an old 'un like you kissin' any of 'em." At Tsulc-pr frowned. "Ezra Jukes, you 'avon't as much j imagination I' j-o"ur ead as that boot. Now, let's say that Jim Sellars .came j an' cuddled 'em all. Which one 'd you f mind his cuddlln most?" "I shouldn't like im cuddlln' any of I 'em," replied Mr. Jukes, indignantly, i "I'd not stand It from Mm." Mr. Tadger looked -despairingly at the youth. "Well. I must think out some other way o makin clear to you which you wants, Ezra." He paused a moment, and a smile passed across his face. "I've got an idea, Ezra. I'll settle this for you be fore tomorrer's over. You'll know Just which of 'em you want then. Now, they all somes In to church on Sunday even in'?" "Yes; I goes with 'em reg'lar" "An you take 'era back to the farm up Hazel Lane?" "Yes." "Well, take 'em that way tomorrer night. Don't 'ave anyone else with you, if j'ou can 'elp." On Sunday evening Mr. Jukes left the church with the three fair maid ens. As they reached the seclusion of Hazel Lane his arms automatlcally folded round the waists of Bessie and I Marv. The modest" girls took as little j notice of the embrace a"s they did of the sunset- "It looks like rain," said Mr. Jukes, directing his remarks to Grace Mad dox, who, being for the moment un embraced, deserved some consolation. "Father says the glass Is fallln'," re sponded Grace. A curious bellowing sound came echoing down the lane. Suddenly Mr. Tadger appeared round the corner. He held his ancient top hat in his hand, his coat-tails were flying behind him and his short legs almost twinkled as he sped over the ground. He had only breath enough to shout wildly as he passed, "Mad dog! Mad dog!" j After supper that evening Mr. Tad- I Kcr waiK.uu prouuij up 10 tue j utvca a larm. "Ezra got in?" he asked Mrs. Jukes, cheerfully. "E's just 'avin' a look at the beasts before 'e goes to bed. "You'll find 'im in the yard somewheres." Mr. Tadger strutted confidently in. the farmyard and soon espied Mr. Jukes leaning over a gate apparently lost In contemplation of a dilapidated haystack. He stepped up to him and slapped him cheerfully on the back. "Now, Ezra, wasn't that mad dog a firstclass Idea o' mine? For an old 'un I didn't do it badly. I almost felt there was a mad dog at my calves.'' "Wasn't there no dog, then?" in quired Mr. Jukes. "O" course there wasn't." "I've torn my best trousers to pieces for nothln", then," said Mr. Jukes, gloom ilj'. "Not for nothln'!" exclaimed Mr. Tadger. "Now, t"Il me this when you see me runnlh' an shoutln' "Mad dog,' which one o' them girls did you grab at first to put into safety, for that's the one you've give your 'eart to." Mr. Jukes glared at his advisor. "Ow was I to know that it wasn't a real mad dog? I've a widdered mother. I f 'ave, an a tender skin. I just jumped the hedge an run for my llfp. It wasn't no time to be botherln about girls. I ran two miles before I stopped, an' then I went a long ways round to Maddox's farm. I just wanted to know if them girls 'ad got 'onit safe. An they all said to me, 'Don't you never show your face 'ere again. Leav ln us to a ravenln mad dog like that.' And when I says that my mother was a wldder they laughs at inc." Mr. Tadger stared at the youth for a moment, and then a curious twinkle came In his eye. "I said I'd settle It for you, Ezra, and it's settled you c-n-n't 'ave none of 'em. But don't you NUTS AS FOOD ARE THAN BEEFSTEAK Lowly Peanut Found To Be Richer Best Roast. THE increase in the consumption of nuts by Americans has been so rapid within the last few years that, even among people who do not subscribe to the vegetarian's en thusiasm, nut eating has almost rsahed the proportions of a fad. Un like most fads, however, nut eating, Tfl nut raising are altogether rational r.nd the nut Industry is being fostered in every way possible by the depart ment of ar'c 'Jure and by various states wiacii ;-e adapted climatically for nut prodact:o In ea.ny j.y nuts " - .ooked upon as a.

T"da.y. however, the conditions are chans-d. While we still Import large quanti ties of nuts, the bulk of our supply Is domestic, the almond being grown profitably In several states, the pecan having attained wide popularity and the Inexpensive peanut of Virginia f Carollnas, arid Georgia having c raised to a position of respectable L by the Investigations of dietitians w -have proclaimed it among thu richest in food properties. Rich In Protein. The edible portion of nuts, with very few exceptions. Is highly concentrated food consisting chiefly of much fat an' little water. In general, nuts are alsr rich in protein, the peanut containing' 29.S percent of this nutrient, while tV'e butternut, beechnut almond and Bra zil nut also rank high. The nut rich est in fat Is the pecan, which contains 70.7 percent, with the Brazil nut a close second with 65 percent. For a number of years the nut as an article or rood has been stigmatized by Its reputation for Indigestibllity. This Idea has gained prevalence Mrgely be cause the nut has never been given its proper place on the menu. Although a highly concentrated form of food, we are accustomed to eating it as a sort of postlude to a Lcar-y meal, thus overcrowding He alg-stive organs and causing "" scorufcrt. Recent ex periments have demonstrated that If nuts were eaten as an integral part of the meal and not as a supplement ary feature or a stimulant, there would be no ill effects. Much stress Is now laid 4upon the thorough masti cation of nuts, and scientists who ad vocate their use for food Insist upon an inclusion of fruits and green vege tables to furnish the necessary bulk required by the digestive organs. Xnt Butters Become Popular. The Increasing popularity of the nut has resulted In multiplying Its uses and the forms In which It may be served. One of the most popular uses to which It has been put is In butters of various kind the peanut butter be ing sold in ton lots at present. The nut butters, being made from finelj ground particles of the kernels, are, as a general proposition, more readily di gested than the nut proper, and they are much used tby vegetarians, as well as by persons who cannot eat .animal fats and who find In these a pleasing variety. The use of nuts in confectionery ! constantly increasing In the United States, while among the Germans they have been popular for many years In such fSrms as the highly ornamental cakes called "marzipan." Among nut products may be mentioned the nut flours and meals, some of which are being manufactured on a commercial scale. As a rule the edible nuts are made into meal by blanching, thor oughly drying and grinding. By using a nut mill the meal may be made at home. Almond meal has been on the market for a number of fears and Ist highly valued by physiclans as4 a' diet' for diabetic patients. Chestnut flour Is also on sale in the United States, being used for most of the culinary purposes for which the fresh nut Is recommended. In Italy this flour con stitutes a considerable portion of tho food of peasants, especially in certain take It to 'eart.

"Cve 'ad three of 'em myself, an I'd just as soon he without e mas with 'em." But Mr. Jukes looked Inconsolably Into the distance. Years Ago To ?rom Tho Hsald Or 1 his Data "39?. day Mlt4 "W Mr3. J.

For almost an hour now it had been cryi'ig incessantly. "Lay It down and leave it there!" demanded Warrea. "Give it to under stand when it cries like that you'll pot nurse it. Put it down and come outl" "Oh, it would cry itself sick!" "Well, what is It doing now?" "Hush-ss-ss! Baby, baby! There, there, don't cry any more!" Differences of Opinion. But the baby only screamed the louder. "Don't stand so nsar, Warren. I think you maxe It more nervous. It'a not used to any one standing over it like that." "Well, it will have to get used to it.
