Plain Speaking
I USED to say just what I thought, on every mortal theme, and life was hectic
then and hot, and every day a scream. I tried to show I had no fears of
any human foes, and people often pulled my ears, or else they punched
ray nose. But I was not-dismayed, thereat, nor humbled yet, by heck! And
people often jammed my hat dear down around my neck. My head was bloody
but unbowed, as said some martial toff, and every time I met a crowd they'd
lack my coattails off. "A soul undaunted still I have," I often would declaim;
and then I'd buy a quart of salve to spread upon my frame. In time one wearries
of such strife, however bold his soul and so, to gain a peaceful life, I canned my
rigmarole. Instead of shooting off ray bile at every time and place, I bought a
large elastic smile and wore it on my face. And though I still had burning
thoughts, I kept the blamed things down, and no one heard the caustic shots
for which I'd won renown. And now all day I dance and sing, and people like
me much- my head's no longer in a sling, I do not need a crutch,

An Experience Of a Lifetime
'ORK on the Elephant Butte dam is proceeding at a rate that makes
perceptible the additions to the height of the structure that take place
even within a few hours. 'With nearly 1200 men at work, in three
shifts, work goes forward 24 hours a day. Everything is moving along smoothly
and swiftly, and the scene is one of great industry and unremitting activity.
The flam is now up high enough so that no flood could do any harm. Two
of the great blocks are np to the level of the old river bed, another section is
20 feet higher than that, and still another section is almost up to the old river
bed. The four sections now in place have brought the dam up to an average
height of 100 feet above bedrock, while the highest of the four is 121 feet above
bedrock. The bottom of the river canyon Is now practically closed by the dam
The two end abutments are yet to be built, and the concrete flume which
was bunt first in order to carry the river flow during construction is still open
and will be kept open some months longer. Three groups of operations will now
go on simultaneously, ana there will be no delays nniess some accident happens
which cannot possibly be foreseen or guarded against by the most extreme pre
cautions. Thsse three groups of operations are, first, excavating for the end
abutments and constructing the abutments; second, building the gate section
and installing tie 12 water gates; third, carrying up the main dam structure.
By next winter it is to be expected that the dam as a whole will average
100 feet above the old river bed or 200 feet above bedrock, with the exception of
two sections known as "winter blocks" that will be left 75 or 100 feet lower
until cold weather; these "winter blocks" will b: filled in the coldest weather,
in order to gain the benefit of the greatest degree of contraction in the masonry.
When tie "winter blocks" are filled, at the period of greatest contraction, they
will so completely fill the gap and crowd tie masonry that every crevice and
joint will be tightly closed, and what expansion comes with warm weather the
whole dam will be jammed into the canyon between tie rock sides as firmly as
if it were part of tie original mountains.
While the "winter blocks" will not be placed until next winter, the remainder
of the dam will be going right np. The dam becomes thinner as it rises, and
the upper sections will be placed more rapidly than the lower. In the uppermost
100 feet, alternate sections each 50 feet wide will be temporarily omitted and
treated as "winter Mocks" in the same way as in the lower courses. It may be
expected that the whole dam to the height of 300 feet above bedrock or 200 feat
above the old river bed will be in place during the latter part of 1915, leaving
only the "winter blocks" to be fil'ed when cold weather returns. The dam will,
in all probability, be finished early in 1916, perhaps by January 1, almost surely
by March 1.
Water storage can begin any time after tie gates are in, the abutments
completed, the flume filled, the upstream face of the dam surfaced, and the exca
vation above the dam filled with loose material up to the level of the old river
bod. All this will be ready next winter, and water storage will begin in time
for the irrigation season of 1915. This present season, therefore, will end all
apprehension about an adequate water supply for all the lands in the valley.
A trip to the dam just now is one of the great experiences of a lifetime.
The steady operation of the three cableways, each quick trip meaning the
placing cf three cubic yards of concrete by each of the three skips, is a sight
that would inspire a Kipling to high poetic tribute of power and beauty. This
is one of tie greatest human undertakings of all time. Man is setting his skill
and industry against the awful powers of nature man is deliberately undoing
nature's work of ages and ages, and with new forces turned to man's service he
is making a new world to take the place of that which nature has made by the
unhindered optiation of destructive power.
At night under brilliant electric lights, hundreds of men go silently and
forcefully about their tasks. There is no interference, no pause, no failure, but,
with wonderfully organized efficiency, the mass of the mountains and the torrent
of the river are made to yield to the Drain power of the human animal acting
through masses of men and the huge machines they have created to multiply by
ten-i of thousands the power of their elbows.
These men are "training" the Bio Grande, the Rio Bravo del Norte,' the
Istrcog" river, the "fierce" river that has hitherto run its 2000 miles of un
hindered way spuming contemptuously the meager works and efforts of man to
turn its power into serviceable channels and conserve the wealth it has so reck
lessly wasted.
Through the flume with roaring swiri rushes a big flood, and the rapids anS
cataract at the end of the flume shout defiance. But the man directing the work
smiles confidently as he talks of corking np the river, and he knows that the
Bio Bravo will wash away the mountains themselves sooner than it will disturb
the Elephant Butte dam after the word "finished" is written in the record of this
mighty achievement.
Now is the time to see this work at its best. After tie dam rises nearer its
final height much of the romance will be lost becausa the victory will have been
won and it will be merely a matter of so many yards of masonry and so many
dollars. Now it is a fightj there are still dreams, still unsolved problems, still
untested methods, still unknown challenges; now, as not so much in the future,
the sense of the human will and human mind controling nature's waywardness
is vividly present, and besides the witnessing of vast mechanical forces in action
there is the sentiment of this daring determination, to thrill the one so fortunate
as to watch at this stage the process of "training" the Rio Grande.
((T WAS secretary to vice presi
dent Pino Suarez and when the
tragic 10 day's battle was In
progress In Mexico City. I went with
him everywhere," said F. Ortiz, pri
vate secretary to K. V. Pesquelra.
"When I learned, a few hours after
it had taken place, that the president
and Mr. Suarez had been arrested by
Huerta and Blanquet, I got into my
automobile and drove to Blanquet's
home. I knew his son and daughter
welL I knocked on the door and told
young Blanquet that his father wanted
him and the sister to come with me as
soon as possible. The young man hes
itated and finally decided not to go. If
he had come with me 1 intended .to
hold him and his sister as hostages
for the life of Madero and. Suarez. But
the plan failed because young Blan
quet was suspicious."
"The new high school that is being
planned by the school board will be a
creditable one for a city many times
the size of EI Paso," said H. R. Mc
Cllntock of the school board. "It will
be up to date la every detail, and we
are going strong on the equipment for
the science and manual training
departments. The machinery and other
fixtures necessary for this department
win oe or ine most modern Kind and
we expect to have the general effi
ciency ot me scnooi above par. More
attention than ever before will be
given to the manual training depart
ment, and to vocational training, and
the new high school will be one of
which every El Pasoan may be proud."
"This is the gloomiest time for the
Texas farmer I have seen for many
a long day," said J. T. Robinson, land
commissioner and candidate for re
election. "On account of the heavy
rains the farmers have been unable
to plant any corn. East Texas has
been flooded compelling the farmers
to remain idle when they should at
this time be planting. The delay In
planting makes me believe that there
will be a shortage in the corn supply
next year. Louisiana and Alabama
have been mighty dry and for that
reason the corn crop in those states
will not be very heavy."
"Tuesday night I missed a church
picnic" said K. B. Elfers. "in order
that I might be at Cleveland square
in time for the concert. I would not
miss one ol those band concerts for
anything. Well, when I got to the
square I suppose there were 360 or 400
persons waiting there. The band never
materialized. I waited until I was too
late for the chicken, supper at the
picnic. Those band concerts certainly
draw the crowds. They ought to. be
cause they are fine."
"For the high school course next
year." said R. J. Tighe, school super
intendent, "we expect to divide the
work under three groups. Commercial,
vocational, and academic. In the com
mercial department of the high school
a modern training in commercial
branches, stenography, bookkeeping,
commercial arithmetic law and other
subjects will be given. The academic
work will train the pupils who wish to
fit themselves for teachers, and who
wish to go to colleges and universities
for higher education. In the voca
tional department we hope to give
good practial training that will equip
the -pupils to be self supporting
"Carranxa has alwavs had nart or

"Znbaran's post corresponds to the posi

"Cloudcroft is beautiful at this sea
son of the year." said Frank Coles,
who has Just returned from the moun
tains. "The bluegrass is a foot deep.
the trees are all out and the place is
as inviting as any place could be. The
people are arriving there for the sum
