Proper Breathing Is Aid
To Good Complexion
WE all know in a vague way,
the effect breathing has on
the blood. The longs are one
immense repository through which
the blood passes for the purpose of
x genation, or purifying by means
of the new air taken in. It Is easy to
see that, if an Insufficient amount of
air is taken in by the lungs, this work
of purification is only partly done.
Improper Hreathlng,
Few women, unless they have been
trained In this respect, breathe prop
erlj They rarely fill the entire lung
space and. In act, it is no exaggera
tion to say that one-half or two-thirds
of the lung area is about all that is in

"The present war maj easily involve

I have seen an estimate of a total
cost of 150,004,000 a day This is too
low The number of those disabled
through wounds and disease was re
centlv placed at 500,000 This, also, is
too moderate. It would be less than
two and one half per cent, and it must
be remembered that in the most recent
great war preceding this, the Balkan
struggle, the casualties were 19 times
greater, or 26 per cent.

Changes Individuals and Values.
"Now, while the same human beings
are concerned both in peace and war,
these two states bear no resemblance
to each other In one, reason and so
ber sense, a feeling of safety and de
sire to do iustice prevail: in the other
these beneficial influences are weak
ened, and folly, fear and greed assert
themselves. War changes individuals
as well as values. -
"A true appreciation of the enormous
losses which are likely to result from
tnts unprecenaentea calamity can only
be gained by taking into account its
effect on all phases and conditions
of indii idual and national existence
Stated in the order of their magnitude,
these losses may be enumerated as fol
lows Dally Shrinkage, f 150,000,008.
"First, temporary or permanent
shrinkage of wealth of nations as dis
tinct from negotiable securities. The
total wealth of the countries Involved
is about J 300,000.000.006. Assume only
a moderate production of 10 per cent
and suppose further tha the war
should last from six to seven months
or about 200 dajs. as forecasted by ex
perts, then the daily shrinkage will
amount to $150,000,000. To be sure
such depreciation of physical posses
sions is mostly due to ignorance and
faintheartedness of the people, for the
properties are there and some are in
destructible. But just the same, the
warring nations will lose credit and
purchasing power and will be subject
ed for an indefinite period to suffer
ings and privations, all of which must
be interpreted as loss of so much
Losses in Industrial Pursuits.
"Second, all losses. Individual and
collective, caused by interference of
war will affect the wheel work of man
ufacture, industry and commerce. These
reflect particularly on the market val
ue of negotiable securities, which con
stitute from 20 to 30 per cent of the
whole national wealth. For obvious
reasons they are apt to be very large,
and the shrinkage may easily amount
for the above period to $ioo,w,ou a
"Third, specific losses due to de
struction of existing private and pub
lic property, including implements and
materials of war. These will greatly
depend on the circumstances, but may
be placed at from $50,000,000 to $15,
000,000 a day
Waste of Life, 3,000.000.
"Fourth, loss of life and disabling
through wounds and disease. Judging
from the data of the Balkan war. the
casualties cannot be taken at leas than
15 per cent, making the total J.000,000.
Assuming an average of $2,500 per in
dividual, this waste will be nearly tU.
000.000 a day.
"Fifth, daily cost of military opera
tions which may amount irom .
000.000 to S30.000.00a.
According to this rough estimate, the
total war cost cannot be much leas than
$70 000.000.000. making almost 25 per
cent of the total wealth of the coun
tries in the world. In the best circum
stances it will take from 40 to SO years
to repair the financial damage, not to

Not the Oldest or the Largest--Just the Best
Three years ago we started The Elite Laundry on a very modest scale. We had only 45x120 feet of floor
space, loday we have increased our floor space nearly 100 per cent. From the start we were resolved to
have nothing but the very hest machinery and equipment. Our faith in a larger and neater El Paso in
duced us to install machinery that would be in keeping with the citv's progress, and now The Elite Laundrv
has the finest and most up-to-date machinery in the entire Southwest. We aretheonlv laundry in El Paso
using the famous Guggenheun shirt presses, which are rapid v being recognized by the progressive laundrv
men. ... . i o t
Our collar machine is The Adams, on which S9 per tent of the new collar work of the entire country is ironed,
and is the onl machine of its kind in El Paso. Our collar work has become justly famous through or
Adams ironing machine and our Prosperity collar moulder which moulds the collar round at the top giving
it twice the life and leaving a space so the tie will slip with ease. We have installed the largest and most
modern Flat Work Ironer, having 20 per cent more capacity than, any machine made and ironing the
finest table linen without leaving string marks. ,
In completing our machinery purchases we scoured the country for the finest and most modem Extractors
and finally bought them in Scotland at double the cost we could have bought other makes for, besides paying
45 per cent duty but Ave wanted the best price was not considered. '
We also have the Modem Conveyor Dry Room system nothing in El Paso like it this enables us to turn
out a much greater volume of work m a more sanitary and satisfactory way than by the old fashioned
method of drying.
These are only a few 0f fa ty and on machines that we ha-e installed, and we mention ihtmot m a boastful manner, but simply that our
patrons may know that e were not satisfied to give them anything but the best. Also or faith in a brger and GREATER EL PASO which
k being justthed day by day, led us to install a laundry that would be in keeping with the city's growth for several years to come.
Our plant is built of solid concrete throughout absolutely fire-proof and the most sanitary laundry plant m the United States.
Thanking our friends and patrons one and all for their continued friendship and patronage which has enabled us to grow as we have wows.
We are Yours for a Greater EI Paso, "
