EL PASO HERALD
Saturday, December 10, 191G WITH The 'Pxchanges BETTER. KOT SAY IT IX 3IEXICO. From Marathon (Texas) Hustler. Mexico's revolution seems to be as suming more serious proportions -than was realized at the beginning of the outbreak. We hope they succeed. d "WHERE TO PLACE THE BLAME. From San Antonio (Texas) Express. We had always felt very kindly to ward east Texas, but this news that east Texas produces most pf the Texas laws is certainly depressing:. o ALIi WOULD BE BARRED. From Alpine (Texas) Guide. It is all right for the women 'of Texas to resolve against the marriage of im beciles, but who is going to prove who is and who isn't in the classification?' Kl Paso Herald. The wife bf our shirt front suggests that the fact of his wanting to marry should be considered suficient proof of imbecility. .qJ. CASULTY LIST AT EAGLE PASS. From Eagle Pass( Texas) News-Guide. The only one hurt in the late revolu tion supposed to be raging in the neighborhood of Eagle Pass, was H. O. Rawlins, the courteous and capa ble manager of the Western Union Telegraph company at this place. After being on the job steadily for five days. missing several meals to accommodate us fool newspaper correspondents, and sending 13,750 words during the "siege" his hand was slightly swollen. A little thing' like that, however, did not deter Mr. Rawlins from being available at any hour for the purpose of getting off messages for the accommodation of correspondents and the public general Jy. Having no help, he was compelled to do all this himself. T'ell with a bo quet after a man is dead give it to him when he can smell it. o DISTANCE CAUSES GROWTH. From Eagle Pass (Texas) News-Guide. When Col. Fuentes and Lieut. NIcanor Valdez left C. P. Diaz to fight Madero ln'Guerrero, the San Antonio Liight and the ExDress cave them 200 men; the New Orleans Times-Democrat furnished them with 500 men; and the Kansas City Star, not to be outdone, started them with an arms' 'of 800. It is now up to Washington and New York, they certainly ought to provide an army of 5000, and when Europe gets in the game 'Gen. Fuentes and Brig. Valdez will probably be at the head of an army corps of 50,000. And the people of C. P. Diaz and Guerrero don't know any thing about It! o A MATTER OF RELATIONSHIP. From Mesa (Ariz.) Free Press. In the matter of rather unique and mixed relationships the Free Press yesterday encountered a prize taker within the limits of the city of Mesa. A man whose name Is the same as an other family residing in another portion of the city, was asked if there was any relationship. He said: "Yes, the two families are related. You may be interested in knowing further that I am my own grandfather and that my son is my own brother. Here is how it came about," he contin ued. "You ee I met a young widow In Missouri by the name of Sarah Minor and, we -were married. She had a step daughter. " Tiien my father met our Stepdaughter and married her. That made my -wife the motherinlaw of het fatherinlaw. and made my stepdaughter my stepmother and my father became ,my stepson. "Then my wife had a spn. My moth ter of my wife, had, a son. That boy was my brother, of coursej because he was my father's son. But he was also the son of my wife's stepdaughter and therefore her grandson. I then became grandfather of my stepbrother. Then my wife had a son. My moth erinlaw, the stepsister of my son, is also his grandmother, because he fs her stepson's child. My father is the brotherinlaw of my child, because his stepsister is his wife. T am brother to my own son, who is also the child of my grandmother. I am my mother's brotherinlaw, --my wife is her own child's aunt, my son is my father's nepliew, and I am my own. grandfather. So there you are."

The sea began to rise. "This is a sad ending to our young lives, William," said J. "Let it be a warning to us In future." We sat listening to the awful storm. Outside, the lightning flashed and the waves roared and hissed. The sail strained at the mast. The keel began to grate softly. Out side, the storm was still raging. And presently we noted that the vessel be gan to heel over to oneside, and no longer tossed about on the waves. "William," said I, "we've sprung a leak, and the Hannah Gwendolen is settling down." The boat heeled more and more. The storm raged at Its height. I tried to compose a piece of poetry, but fell asleep. I awoke several hours later. The boat was heeled over at an alarming angle, and quite stationary. I felt stiff and weary in every limb but we were saved saved ! I put my head out on deck. The sun was shining brightly. We were lying on a beach. Was it France, I won dered, or was it Germany? I looked at the land. We had drifted ashore at the edge of a town. I stared at the town incredulously. Then 1 awakened William. , "William," said I, "a miracle! After sailing half the seas over, we have drifted ashore at the- very place we started from!" William glanced over the side. "Not so much of a miracle, after all," he remarked ungraciously. "At any time last night we might have stepped over board and waded ashore." "Waded ashore?" I cried. "What do you mean?" "Why, "while you were quarreling about who was to be boss, we quite forgot to pull up the anchor, that's" all!" And at that, with a score of yards separating us, we left the beach in silence and went up to breakfast.

"Then he'll have to take plain bread for breakfast," grumbled Anna. "No biscuits won't bake in that draught." "Well, make some toast, then; he likes that if it's brown and crisp." Anna muttered something under her breath as Helen hurried away to the baby. Half an hour later, breakfast was served by a very sullen and silent Anna. There was neither toast nor biscuits. And' the omelette lacked its usual light flakiness. Warren took up a piece of cold bread and then threw it back on the plate. "You don't expect me to eat that for breakfast, do you?" "The oven wouldn't bake sir, with the window open, and I couldn't get it down," Anna answered sullenly.
