It has been .many years since El Paso has had as dry a year as the one just closing. With our average rainfall less than nine inches, we are short more than five inches of that up to date or we were until at began to rain yesterday. It has heen many years since such a condition has existed in EI Paso only a fraction overy four inches of rainfall in a period of over 11 months and the ranchman, the cattleman and. everybody may well rejoice when the clouds hover -and begin to weep. The rain started falling just right just fast enoughto soak 'thoroughly into the ground and put the moisture there. A heavy rain after a long drouth, often washes the loose, dusty surface badly and does as much damage as .good, but a slow, lighter rain will soak deeply into the ground and be of great benefit In this instance it Is of incalculable benefit, for the drouth has been felt severely. El Paso is not as unfortunate in this regard as certain other regions in the southwest, particularly northeastern New Mexico, but it has been bad enough in this section and we welcome it because we need it. If there is any truth in the old saying that a dry year presages a wet winter, then EI Paso is due to have some mighty fine rains this winter, with a splendid season in the. ground to bring up the spring grass and crops, for the year has been dry enough for all purposes. Cattle have suffered so severely from the drouth this year that they have been moved to eastern pastures to save their lives and even this was not effective, for many of them died "before they could be moved. Crops, where irrigation was impossible, withered and died, and there was much inconvenience to say the least during the summer and autumn..

Protecting the MEXICO is planning to enact a stringent law against bullion and ore thefts. This is a measure that might well be taken up by many of the Amer ican states, for the miner needs all the protection he can get. In Mexico, thefts of ore have been more numerous than in the United States, for the reason that many of the mines are in isolated localities and the ores are often converted into bullion before being taken to market. These bars of gold and Eilver offer much temptation to -bandits in the mountains. Mexico now proposes to make it a very serious offence for any person" to buy ore or bullion unless the seller can give a clean bill of sale and a perfectly clear account of how it was acquired. Miners natives and foreign have suffered heavily at the hands of ore and bullion thieves in Mexico, and they will appreciate the new law which the fed eral government proposes to enact for their protection. The miner has a hard enough time at best, prospecting and working out in the rough country for weeks and months away from civilization, and the fruits of his labors deserve every pro tection. And it is most always the lonely prospector or the small company that suffers, for the big mines are wealthy enough as a general thing, to furnish guards for their property, but the men operating the little companies or working as in dividuals are not so fortunate and usually fall victims to the raids of thieves. o : The man who starts the races ought to be in politics he is a wire puller.

A 5 A RULE the Hyborg town coun cil was a very harmonious as sembly and years had passed since the local papers had had to tell of & stormy meeting or a heated dis cussion within the walls of the town hall, but now the venerable council was split in two groups because of the approaching election of a mayor. The two candidates were Dahlhoff and Fugl and it would have been difficult to find two greater contrasts. Dahlhoff was a tall, rather handsome man in the forties, rich and charitable. Pugl on the other side was a little dried up, bony and hungry looking fel low, 10 years older than his rival. He was the owner of a grocery store in the poorer part of the town. Evn the champions of Dahlhoff were forced .Jp admit that Fugl had the better claim to the office. He had been an alderman for many years and had already been passed by several times at previous elections. He was only a small grocer, however and the dignity of Hyborg would suffer if a man of his position was chosen to sit in the mayor's chair, For this reason he would have been passed by again if he had not suddenly rebelled. The first sign of his sur- J.W.. .--.. c prisin amhif.ion had come .several months before after a meeting of the council. ' "We discussed those new lampposts In Maine street for nearly two hours." said alderman Hansen. "It was too much time to waste on that." "Just what-1 think," exclaimed Fugl. 'but I will change all that next year." "You?" "Yes, when I am made mayor." "You!" exclaimed Hansen in surprise. "It is my turn," said Fugl with some show of anger, "and I am not to be pushed asid,e again." With these words he turned on his heels and left Hansen staring after him. Alderman Sommer came up and Hansen told him what had happened. "What! Fugl mayor. Why the very idea is too ridiculous." 'It is his turn,1' replied Hansen, "no one can deny that, and if he Insists on his right, I will back him up." "Well, I won't," laughed Sommer. This 'is the way the row started, -which divided the town into two hos tile camps. Shortly afterwards it be came known that Fugl was a candi date, and the opposition put up Dahl hoff' against nlm. A better selection could never have been made, for Dahl hoff woMid make an ideal mayor, and his friends teit sure oi ms election, uuu Fugl suddenly became a man of ac tion and showed a surprising amount of energy. "Now, listen to me Fugl," said alder man Sommer one day to him, "It is not dignified to run around fishing for votes as you do. The council is strong ly in favor of Dahlhoff. Why don't you withdraw from the contest in his fa vor?" v "Because I don't want to." "But you must know j-ou are not fit to be mayor, and besides it will cost you a pile of money." "I have saved up some not much, I know, but as much as I could. Sommer shrugged his shoulders and walked off. "The worst part of it," mumbled Fugl by himself. "Is. that he is right. I am not fit to be mayor, but and he stopped with a deep sigh. As for Dahlhoff. he did 'not take op position very seriously. But Fugl worked Tiard and with an impudence which was .strongly in contrast to his usual manner. Some of the members of the council promised to support him, others -3-minded him of his shortcomings, but he went on. and a few weeks before the election he was still out for the office. Dahlhoff was sitting in his library pondering over what was to happen in the meeting of the council next day. "I suppose I shall have smnth sail ing," he thought. "Sommer at least says so." Then he Hegan to think of Fu1. "Poor fellow! He will be disappointed. I wish he would withdraw, that would save him from the disappointment, and I should of course prefer to be elected unanimously. It would be far better for both of us. I wonder if he wHK I will go and have a talk with him." "It was almost dark in Fugl's little grocery store, for the lights tad Jct ben iurnel on. The Coor was open aid Dahlhoff went up to the counter. A little old woman came from a room behind the store, leaning heavily on her cane. "My son will be here in a moment, she said in a trembling voice. "Thank you, I will wait for liim." "He is terribly busy now," she con tinued. "It is this election business. He may be the next mayor oi tiynorp. I dare not think of it. My son mavor of Hyborg. The very thought makes me dizzy." Fugl came in now. "Why, it is you, Mr. Dahlhoff? I am so sorry I kept you waiting." "Oh, don't mention it, I just come to have a chat with you." The old woman retired and Fugl said; '"If you come to ask me to with draw, you are wasting your time. I cannot do it." "That was why I came, nevertheless. But listen, Fugl. Why do you want to become mayor, when you know you can't afford it?" "I know, Dahlhoff. And I know. too. that I am not fit to be mayor, but I cannot withdraw." "But what is your intention?" "Well, I willl tell you. , Do you know where I was born?" "No!" "In Hyborg poorhouse. My father died three months before I was born, and mother had no other place to gu. She was only the daughter of plain people, but she felt the discrace all the same Denatured Poem Aflams. The Herald's Daily Short Story Dahlhoff was silent. "Mother and I had to work hard while I was a boy. I do not know how we managed, but we did all the same. And we never had to return to the poorhouse. Sometimes mother was afraid of it and then I would say: No mother. Just wait! Some, day I will be the mayor of. Hyborg." "Mayor of Hyborg,'1 Dahlhoff re peated. "Yes, of course I just said it for fun, but some how mother came to believe it. It seemed to her as if that alone would wipe off" the stain of the poor house." "I understand." "Well, the time came when mother could work no longer, and I started this little store. I have been quite successful and saved up a little money. Sometimes I wanted to spend a little on mother, but she always said I must Tceep the money to become mayor. She cannoi give up tne mougni anu wi uie I happy only if I am elected. That is ' why I want to become mayor. She has j been the best mother in the world to me and it is my duty to make her j happy if I can. I should not like you to repeat what I have told you, but I I -aniea you to unaersiana wny jl can- not withdraw." "I understand," said Dahlhoff, "may the better man win." "No. May I win," said Fugl dole fully. "If it is a question of the better man, I am afraid I will lose. "Gentlemen," said the retiring may or, "we have met today for a trial elec tion of my successor. Has anyone a candidate to .suggest. The names of Fugl and Dahlhoff were proposed and seconded, but Dahlhoff. stood up and said: "J thank you very much, gentlemen, for proposing me for the honorable office, but I must refuse and in doing so I want to endorse the nomination of Mr. Fugl." The words created a sensation, but the result was the unanimous nomina tion of Fugl. When the final election day came, there was another surprise in the coun cil. "Gentlemen," said Fugl, "before you hegin voting I want to say that I re gret I cannot accept the honor for several reasons, some qf which you may guess. I propose 2dx. Dahlhoff and hope he will accept-' Dahlhoff did and was elected unani mously. When he had made his speech of thanks he took Fugl aside and said: "But your mother, Fugl?" "It is all right, Dahlhoff. You treated me like a gentle Uan. and I am glad 1 have been able If .act as I did. I am not the least sorry, because I am nt mayor now." 'JBut your mother?' ' "I found a way. She would hav been proud to see me made mayor .but well, she is a woman and she s still prouder to think that her bny, born in Hyborg poorhouse. refused the office of mayor of Hyborg."

This use of the wireless is not a sur prise to those familiar with the history of the most remarkable and scientific game ever conceived by man, for every invention of a new means for rapid transference of information between distant points has been utilized by the chess player. Matches are said to have been played by correspondence between Frederick the Great of Germany and Voltaire, when a swift courier service between Potsdam and Paris was In augurated to carry the news of the "next move." With the improvement in post roads, contests between the cham pions of Edinburgh and London were inaugurated as early as 1826 and the first chess game by telegraph was play ed between players in Washington and Baltimore in 1844, in the very infancy of the Morse telegraph. Cable matches between the United States and England came with the laying of the first cable and these continue to the present day, the George Newnes trophy being the chief stakes. , Chess By Cable and Wireless. The practicability of chess by cable, telegraph and wireless is due largely to the great Syrian player, Stamma, of Aleppo, who Invented the present sys tem of notation.

This is the report of the citizens' strike com- mittee of Chicago, which has just com pleted a thorough investigation of the conditions In the families of the strik ing garment workers. This is the penalty of a labor war. Can such a thing be possible in a. Christian country? When we read of the many luxurious fetes being held over the country, the ivals the lavish entertainments, the,' ivagant exhibitions, is It a wonder th hPlnless families become so-1 carniv extrav that these helpless families become so cialists? Want breeds crime. Destitution cre ates criminals. Starvation makes brutes of men. Here is an authentic and official re port submitted after a careful investi gation. 1 Is such a condition compatible with our high ideals of the brotherhood of man! , The person who does not love babies, flowers and music Is a person passing Ijeyond the pale of human sympathy. Such people must live in Chicago, if they can permit such a state of affairs to go unrelieved. Last week a day was observed by na tional proclamation. It was a day of thanksgiving. What had the mothers of these little ones to be thankful for? Could they look into the pinched faces, the sinking eyes, the colorless cheeks, hear the plaintive wail for food and feel in their hearts that there is above a just God, who looks after the helpless; a Christ who said, "Suffer lit tle children to come unto me?" Is this not one reason why religion is losing its hold? Would it not be better if our great ecclesiastical organizations did just a little more missionary work at home, Instead of trying to baptize Chinese. Japanese and Africans, to make Christians of them? As Zangwill aptly remarks in his lat est play, does the sprinkling of water on the head change the blood? These nations take care of their own -well enough. Let us take care of ours. It is not the purpose to discourage mission ary work. These missionaries, in heath en lands, are heroes. They are the true crusaders. But while we help others In alien countries, donot let us for a min ute permit such a. tragedy to be enacted in our own Christian country. Think of the Chicago report five thousand babies starving in the midr of plenty; five thousand helpless little innocents perishing for the want of simple food. Is this Christianity? j another inhabitant of that region, for it ..v. ..w ""i. startled Europe with the power to play i cness without seeing: the board. This feat of memory was performed first in Florence in 1266. Since that time chess ' players have developed their powers of ! memory and visualization to a truly I T1Q Ft'AIAUr r nm.n.A. T -. . " r X a t marvelous degree. Leon Matteo Li Genchi, a Spaniard who lived during the sixteenth century, astounded the courts of Europe by playing, blindfold ed, three games at the same time, and carrying on a lively conversation while his opponents were planing their modes of attack. But these performances have j uetsii ouisnone many times in the nine teenth century, especially by the young Boston player, H. N. Pillsbury, who played 22 games at one time, blind folded! Origin Veiled In Antiquity. The origin of chess is veiled in the mists of antiquity, but It is generally Relieved to have come from India. The first intimations of chess go back -3000 years before the Christian era. In the early days it was played by four per sons instead of two and the moves of the four principal pieces were deter mined by throwing an oblong die. From India chess was carried to Persia and from there it was introduced into Spain by the Moors'.
