Mine MY CONCERTINA sobs and shakes, for it's in poor repair, and neighbors say the noise it makes would cause a saint to swear. My neighbors come, on protest bent, when I on it perform; "Why don't you buy an instrument that's up to date?" they storm. "Pianos now are in the reach of e'en the poorest man, and you might go and buy a peach on the instalment plan. Pipe organs, too, on easy terms, are sold most everywhere; why play a thing that squeaks and squirms, and murders every air?" "Because," I answer, " 'tis, mine own, all paid lor, long ago; and though it has a beastly tone, that fills the town with woe, I'd rather hear its music sad, that keeps me in a sweat, than own the fairest, sweetest Strad, for which I'd gone in debt. I'd rather it should make me sore with discords, every day, than have collectors at the door demanding instant pay. The humble whistle, built of tin, by local plumber made, beats organ, flute or violin for which you haven't paid. My concertina seems a crime to folks like you, and yet, I find that music most sublime which doesn't hint of debt." (Copyright by George M. Adams.? WALT MASON. The Forward Look OPTIMISTIC sentiment increases over ,the country. Having passed through a drastic tariff revision and the initial war crisis, business was prepared to make the most of the favorable results of the election. There is a distinctly better feeling, grounded perhaps in the hope of respite to business from legislative attack, and in the hope of a return to stable conditions two yearshence after the flurry shaU have spent itself. Like Tennyson's queen of the May, business is surprised to find itself so well after all the terrible predictions the doctors had made about it. With the excep tion of a few industries, matters are not in such shape as to bring despair. On the contrary, there are so many points in favor of early and general improvement all a'ong the line, that it is weU to take an occasional account of stock. The United States Is at peace, and it is the only great industrial nation that is at peace. We have greater primary resources than any other nation. We have raw materials, foods, and manufactured goods, that the warring powers, with their 1,000,000,000 population, must have. Besides, there are several hundred million people outside the warring powers, who must buy more heavily from tie United States now that they cannot buy from the nations they have been ac customed to patronize. Onr ships are sailing the seas without serious interference, and our commerce can move in the ships of other neutral nations. Our goods can go anywhere, subject only to the rules of contraband of war. It is to be borne in mind that we have hitherto consumed 95 percent of our own manufactured products, ex porting only 5 percent; there is a vast opportunity to build up the exporting business in all lines, so soon as we have the goods to export. The war has shut off many lines of commerce toward the United States. We shall be unable to buy abroad, for a long time, many things we have always bought from other countries. This will force lis to make up the deficiency through home industries. It is true that most international commerce is really an exchange of goods for goods, rather than for gold; and the reduction of our imports wiH have some effect also in curtailing exports in certain lines. But such are the necessities of the rest of the world that the other countries will be forced to buy from us for gold to make loans and create new credits in our favor, to be drawn upon in payment for commodities. In the nature of things, the warring powers -will have to mortgage their future to benefit our present moment; they wiU have to raise money among their own people by means of loans, to send to us in payment for the things we have to sell them. The Herald is inclined to reverse the usual form of prophecy, and say that in the long run, the United States will pay its share of the war waste, and share the loss with the others, but for the immediate future, the United States will benefit from the war. The usual way is to predict present loss for us, and in the long run, gain. It seems more logical the other way: present gain, and in the long run, loss. But through the years to come, the power of the United States to bear its share of the -world:loss will steadily increase, and the loss will be shared by future years and generations. What we are at present most interested in is the immediate effects, and tho", it appears, ought to be and will be to stimulate American industry and trade and give ns a temporary and more or less fictitious prosperity which we should be able to enjoy to the full without tempting fate by failing to provide against the inevitable reaction. On the whole, at the present moment, there is a distinctly better feeling in all American commercial centers; and great reassurance has. come from the termination of the British moratorium last week without causing hardly a ripple. E-itain feels more confident. She, too, has risen above the panicky feeling. o There is nobody in front of you in line now, if you go to pay your poll tax. You will save time and save your right to vote if you pay now. A man who crnnot or will not pay his poll tax, or who neglects to pay, is certainly not en titled to have any voice in the government Further restrictions on the voting privilege would be a good thing; certainly no one can object to the very slight restriction the poll tax imposes. o Roosevelt's campaign manager in New York declares that the colonel will not be a candidate in 1916, but that he prefers the role of a philosopher. Query: Which does the Republican party need worst, philosophy or candidates? p England took the copper and released the Kroonland, sailing from America for Holland and seized at Gibraltar. A British court will decide whether the copper is contraband of war or not- o Glass "Made AMERICA'S glass industry will profit by the European war. This country has never been able to make certain kinds of glass as cheaply as Germany and Austria can make it, largely because $1.75 a day is high wages for glass workers there while here the men get $6. But now the world has to look to America for good glass; for awhile after tne war is over, -with such multitudes of men killed off, the price of labor will be high over there, and this country may be able to hold the markets it has gained by the accident of war. Other factors besides the differing wage scales, have kept this country behind in the glass market The potash needed has had to be imported, but with chemists and scientists in full cry after American potash for American glass, this problem will be successfully met In the art of glass making the Venetians have been especially inspired. They can tint glass like the shells and corals of the deep sea, or blow twilight cloudy olive and gold tones, or the deep cool greens of forests and sea waves, and they can twist 'and groove and cup it out into lines as delicate as frost lines. They can fret it or smooth it, blow sunlight or shadow through it, until it is as lovely as some natural thing from the meadows or the snows or the sea. More and more, as the war desolates so much of the beautiful in art over the seas, the American wishes that something of that deep soul of beauty might penetrate the work of our land. o Is it possible that the United States government, for the first time in four years, is going to refrain from favoritism and allow the Mexican factions to fight it out without our interference? No, it is not possible. o President Wilson will learn in the course of time that the Mexican trouble is already settled, just as the tariff question is settled. One will stay settled almost as long as the other. o Months ago the El Paso Herald predicted that Carranza would soon be classed as a rebel; it has come to pass, right on schedule. France tried government by convention; France also welcomed Napoleon as a savior. 14- years A&o Today From The Herald This Date 1000. V K. Austin returned last night from Grlveston V." R.

IT was dinner time at the Rags's house, and, at the small table set in the kitchen sat Mr and Mrs. Rags. Mr. Rags hung his head and his oars dropped almost in his plate, every once in a while he would loo up, but as soon as he -would catch the eye of Mrs Rags he would duck his head. For Mrs. Rags was scolding, and Mr Rags was afraid ot his life They were eating in the kitchen becausp Mrs. Unirv woe o-ninc. tn have comDanv. and she did not want to rink mupsing the. other room. She was laying aown ui law to poor Mr Rags. "Now don't sit around stupidly all evening," she barked out. "If there is anything I hate it is to see jou shut up like a clam. You act sometimes as if you could think of nothing but how badly you want to go outside and take a chew of tobacco." Mr Rags wiggled, and kept his eyes on his plate. "Don't get excited and laugh and talk your head off. either. No one wants to know about your checker games or your old store " Mrs: Rags sniffed with wrath and her eyes glis tened as she spoke. "And there is one thing that I insist upon, if you are going to stay in the house Don't you dare to interrupt me when I begin to play on the con certina. Someone will ask me to play of course. Then I will begin, but I want silence. Hear mC" Mrs. Rags leaned over and cracked poor Mr. Rags with her spoon os she finished, and he nodded "yes" as he rubbed his head. The rest of the dinner was eaten in silence, but Mrs. Rags began to bustle about before her husband had finished. She rooted him out and set him to work on the dishes, while she put away the food. Between times she scolded, and told him what a stupid dog he was, and how she would chase him away from home if he dared in terrupt her during the music. "Don't get up and leave the room, either," she cried, 'just sit still and keep your mouth shut." Mr. Rags worked quietly, and es caped as sodn as he could to dress. At half past bix he came down, ready for the party, but it was nearly eight be fore Mrs. Rags sailed down, and some of the guests had come. Mrs. Rags was all smiles and sweet ness, and even Mr Rags warmed up a little and began to be happier. The bunnies and dolls, and Tabbies and the Hicks people and everyone came at last. They gossiped and the children played games until well on in the evening, yet no one asked Mrs. Rags to play on the concertina. Mr. Rags was glad, but would not let Mrs. Rags catch his eye, for he knew that she blamed it on him. She waited as long as she could, but finally went out in the kitchen to start the supper. She had just put on the coffee, and had placed the bird sand wiches in the oven to warm, when Tom Tabby came out "They want you in there to play the concertina," he called and ran back, but Mrs. Rags was right behind him. She said she coudn't and then said she might and as the animals begged she said that she would She stood up against the wall and threw her head back and began. Be- ira she started, however, she gave V". ags an awful look which said as plain 27 ' 1 It's all right t' live in a one-hoss town if you own an auto.

Yes, Mrs. Rags played, but as she played, the smell of coffee got stronger and then the company be gan to smell bread burning, but no one .moved Rags began to smile be hind his whiskers, but he kept to his seat. Suddenly the smell reached Mrs. Rags. ' Her supper party was burning' She dropped the concertina and ran to the kitchen, but it was too Jate. With, drooping ears, she went back to her guests to tell thara that the supper was burnt They tried to assure her that it was all right "&nd ate what was left, and went home early. But Mrs. Rags knew better, her party had been a failure. Late that night after cleaning the burnt pans, she went up to bed, but first stopped to look at Mr. Rags. She held the candle1 high and looked closely, for did she see a grin on his face? She raised her paw in anger, but Mr. Rags poped his' head under the covers at that very moment and Mrs. Rags went heurriedly into her own room.

Editor El xJaso Herald- Permit me to register a complaint as to the manner in which visitors to lour city are being treated at the hands ot the police. It seems that at this time a stranger is not safe from arrest insult and humiliation because there have been a few robberies, etc. committed. On account of the unusual vigilance of the police It is unsafe for a person to walk on your streets, with out facing the possibilities of being arrested. I have heard there were no fewer than 125 such arrests in a single day. Now, Mr Editor, surely there Is no necessity for the police to act in such a wholesale manner. It occurs to me that an officer ought at least have some evidence against a person before subjecting him to arrest and embar rassment In the case of the writer. 1 was stopped while walkilng along the street by an officer, placed under ar rest, while another, presumably an of" fiter in plain clothes, proceeded to in sult and humiliate me In the hearing of many passers-by. Now, Mr Editor, no right thinking person should have any objection to the police using corrcst measures to protect the citizens of this cit, but surelj it is not necessary to go to such extremes Hoping some more able per than mine may take this matter up.

"The few German war vessels that are operating away from their bases in German ports are certainly giving good accounts of themselves," said Max Weber. "In every case, when they haTe been captured they have fought tj the last The Emden was a second rate vessel and its loss has been far more than made up for by the large number of merchant ships that it has captured. The officers and men on these detached vessels are almost sure of capture or death, but in every case they fearlessly do their duty until the last." "Holiday rates on all railroads out of El Paso Willi soon be effective," &aid Harry Graham. "During the latter part of October and the early days of Ncvember a marked increase has taken place in passenger traffic, both in and out of this point After the sum mer rates had expired the usual dull ness in traveling set in. but it has.; begun to pick up Temarkably in the. past few weeks The California trains, especially, bring large numbers of tourists to El Paso, many of whom stay over for a few days. An extra coach was recently added to train No. 101. of the Southern Pacific westbound, to accommodate the increase in pas senger traffic" "Present indications point to a good hunting season," said E B Elfers. "I have been both east and west and have found game plentiful in both sec tions. I saw many birds, as well as four footed game Quail, however, are rather scarce to the east owing to tha dry country.

Galicia is smaller than Ohio, bev has a population of nearly 5,000,000, di vided into nearly equal portions of Poles and Ruthenians, who love each other with all the fervor of Germans and French.

Since then it has been owned by Austria and Russia in turn, and it now appears to be Russia's turn. Galicia is cut off from Hungary by the Carpathian mountains, which also protect it from the warm south winds.
