The Crooks
THE people who beset yon, hornswoggle and bsat you, don't profit for long
from the kale; for folks who are tricky find Nemesis sticky it never
abandons their trail. I've often been cheated; the trick's been repeated so
often I cannot keep tab; but ne'er has the duffer who thus made me suffer been
much better off or his grab. It pays not to swindle; dishonest rolls dwindle
like snow when exposed to the sun;; like feathers in Tophet is burned up the
profit of cheating, the crooked man's men. The people who sting me unknow
ingly bring me philosophy fresh, by the crate; I don't get excited my wrongs
will b3 righted, by Nemesis, Fortune or Fate. I know that the stingers they
think they are dingers, and gloat o'er the coin they don't earn I know they'll
be busted and sick and disgusted, while I still have roubles to burn. I'd rather
be hollow with hunger than follow the course that the tricksters pursue; I'd
rather be "easy" than do as the breezy and conscienceless gentlemen do. Far
better the shilling you've earned by the tilling of soil that is harder than bricks,
than any old dollar you manage to collar

THE work of raising the budget fund goes merrily along and the committee
is meeting with encouragement While those who have, been seen have
been liberal, the committee still has a great deal of work ahead of it and
the business and professional men of the city can help by getting their sub
scriptions ready. It will be the endeavor of the committee to call upon every
business and- prof essional man in the city in the course of time.
The work the committee is doing is being donated, and, as these men are
business and professional men, it is costing them money to stay away from
their stores and offices. It js therefore but a matter of right that every person
who has not yet be:n called upon, make it as easy for this committee as possible
by being ready to meet them properly when they calL The committee is doing
this work for El Paso and it will be a material aid to them and enable them,
to go on with the work and finish sooner if every person they call upon is ready
to talk business and knows what he wants to say.
The committee suggests that the members of each business firm discuss
among themselves what they can give and be ready to give it when the com
mittee arrives. Where there is but one person to see, the committee suggests
that this person think the matter over, decide what he can do to help the fund
along and be ready to do it when they calL
This money will be used quite largely this year to advertise El Paso through
out the east and central west as a desirable place for tourists and homeseekers.
It is the desire to place the publicity this fall and winter so that it will catch the
tonnsts bound for California to the two expositions next year. Next year will
mark the completion of the dam and the resulting assurance of a constant water
supply. The valley land is not nearly all settled up and the chamber of commerce
wishes to use much of the money it is now raising to carry on a campaign to
attract settlers here. It is believed that proper advertising will route thousands
of exposition tourists here, who, whether they buy land or not, will spend money
here and help to advertise the place by talking about it when they go away. But
the main object is to get homesteaders here, those who will settle down, buy
land and go to farming it The advertising campaign will be conducted with
that end principally in view, and, to be successful, it must be upon rather a large
scale and kept up persistently for a time.
Numerous other plans are under way for benefiting El Paso, but if this
object alone was to be attained, it would be worth the price to El Paso. Fifty
thousand dollars will cover all expenses contemplated, including money to en
tertain the Democratic state convention, money to go after the National Live
stock association convention and several others, money to pay off an instalment
:n the School of Mines and numerous other things that El Paso wants 'and seeds.
Be ready when the committee calls. It is made up, like yourself, Mr. "Busi
ness Man, of business men who are giving their time to raise the money that
El Paso may prosper. Take as little of their time as yon can by being ready
with your subscription.

"Don worry, Tettie." she said. Til

And she did watch so well and man

the kitchen that the mischievous lit
