Billy Sunday H IS language jars the purist's soul, his methods jolt some sects and cults, he sprina a slangy rigmarole but Billy Sunday gets results. He uses club and monkey wrench to knock the sinners off their pins; he drags them to the mourners' bench, and makes them shake their sordid sins. "This Sunday isn't orthodox," the old line clergyman declares; "for like an auctioneer he talks, and mixes argot with his prayers. He isn't ladylike at all, and his success per-j-lc-es me; I talk to empty pew and stall, while he makes legions bend the knee." Pull Tilly follows up his plan: with Peter's fiery zeal endowed, he talks to you a- man to man, and speaks the language of the crdwd. You hear his voice like trumpet ring, and know, while truths around you whiz, religion is .1 vital thin?, that you are nesding in your biz. No doubt you go to jeer and scoff, or 'while :omc idle hours away, but when he reels his sermon off, you join the purh, and kneel and pray. Perhaps he isn't as refined as you would like, but vhat's the odds? He makes old Satan get behind, and makes men tired of phoney gods. (Copypright by George M. Adam;.) TALT MASON. It Pays, Every Way HflflEltf IP T IS most gratifying to see the use of this brand multiplying. That is one result one of the many results of the "Made In El Paso" show. The manufacturers themselves are learning the value of the El Paso brand, for such use enables each producer to take advantage of all the cumulative advertising El Paso receives and has received. The use of the "Made In El Paso" brand will also tend to arouse and sustain a spirit of local pride, and loyalty to rome industries, and everybody will be the gainer. The money will be kept at home aHd spent at home, and the wage roll will lengthen. It is probable that the influence of this "Made In El Paso" campaign, and of the brands now being quite widely used by manufacturers on their packages aad in their advertisements, will gradually extend to other southwestern cities, and that they will adopt a similar plan, so that the neighborly spirit of co operation 'and friendly interchange may be promoted. El Pasoans would like to know all about the products of her neighbors, so that El Paso might buy in the neighborhood, where possible, those things not immediately available in the local market. The use of the "Made In EI Paso" brand, which appears at the head of this, article, should become universal with all local producers and manufacturers whose products do not carry the El Paso mark in some other combination.

Among the pro visions are two regulating child la bor and providing for pensions in old age that are far ahead of any now- in force in this country. Many reforms in the present legal system are also provided for. Whether or not any of the laws will ever be given a fair trial will have to de pend on the course of militaary events in the republic." The Hindu BY GEORGE FITCH. Author of "At Good Old Slnasb." A war horse lives 20 days, twice as long a,s a war motor. The horse has nerve to live on, which the motor lacks. But machinery is so perfect today that some cars seem to have a spirit, some controling, impelling concentration upon the road under them and the, journey ahead. A good car acts on the road like a perfect yacht on the water it seems a living thing that senses the road and leaps along in enjoyment. 0 A movement begun in Italy and fostered in Switzerland and Spain will bring a petition to the United States government to try to. save art in the warring countries.

The Hindu is a very rcligrous man. He refrains from meat and strong drink and kills no living being because of his beliefs. Unfortunately the ti gers of India, are not religious and have no faith in vegetarianism. They eat about 80,000 Hindus a year which is about the number of Americans who perish annually because of a misplaced faith-in J. Barleycorn. Thus, what tbe Hindu gains in temperance lie loses beoause of hij tender care of the tiger. The Hindu is also famous for his caste system.

The 11 articles not stated by Japan to the powers seem to be moie drastic and less defensible than the 11 articles which Japan made public It is such cross eyed diplomacy as this that makes the white race hesitate about dealing with the yellow face on equal terms. Japan claims to be modern, but that aort of diplomacy has been outlawed among the western powers for quite a'while. It used to be the rule. "A diplomat," said a 19th century cynic, 'is one who is sent abroad to lie for his country." But the last two or three decades have witnessed a complete reversal of the old ways. Outspoken frankness now characterizes the diplomatic dealings of the Euro pean powers, as it used to characterize the diplomatic dealings of the United States. Most unfortunately, while Europe was moving toward the better method of open facedness, full publicly, and sincerity, the United States was drifting in the opposite direction, so that today the United States is ranked with Japan a? a power which speaks with its hand before its face aad its tongue in its cheek. This is what Knox and Bryan have done to America's reputation. Every one wtio read the official documents of the various belligerents bearing on the outbreak of the war must have been impressed with the vigorous directness of the official communications,' especially those of Germany, Belgium, France, and Austria. The volumes read like sharp debates between masters of the forensic art. Japan wants to gain a strong and permanent foothold in China. She chose a time when all the European powers are closely engaged, and she knows perfectly well that the United States has not the least intention of trying to enforce the "open door" poilcy for which thi3 country has worked and fought since Matthew Perry 63 years ago carried the Stars and Stripes to Kurihama and "for the first time awoke the land from three centuries of slumberous seclusion." Japan, for the present, will have what she covets, and there will be new wars and new alliances in the orient after the European struggle is over. If China is to be divided, Japan will not peacefully be allowed to preside at the feast. o "Constitutional psychopathic inferiority" is a mouth filling phrase that is comfortably used by the physicians at Ellis Island. It is a part of the immigra tion lawcovering the excludable immigrants, and means not only those insane or on the way to -it, but drug and alcohol victims, men who are not normal mentally.

If ministers who oppose the theater would attend such plays their opinions on the theater might be greatly altered." "The importance of pure food, free from dangerous adulterations is a most important one for every citizen." said Mrs. W. I Foxworth. "EI Paso is not as particular about these things as it might be. The protection of foods, from germ laden dust and dirt and from flies is greatly important to the wel fare of every community, the sanitary handling of breads and all foods for human consumption. We hope that the bringing of pure food commissioner, Mrs. E. L. Darwin, to El Paso will cre ate a greater Interest in this question among the merchants handling food and the people buying them and that this situation will be greatly improved." Seeing America is fashionable this winter. Chronic tourists who have put cf f doing America from year to year are now making the rounds from the northern Jakes to Florida palms, and from Niagara Falls to Yosemite. It has always been a slur upon us that Americans, the most inveterate of globe trotters, never know their own country. The war in Europe, by turning back Americans to America, is doing the land a good turn, for it is neither profitable to the country to be dis regarded by its people, nor to the people to lack enthusiasm for their own land.1 o " The effort on the part of the labor bureau to use the government's postoffice and immigration machinery for the benefit of the workingman out of a job, is one that commends itself to all who are interested in curing poverty.
