SELF INTEREST will finally end the war: bat it
will be, in a small measure at least, the self in
terest of attrBiea, the self interest that .-measures
its satisfaction partly by the interest of others, and
by the satisfying of others' just demands. Self interest,
in the true sense, or "enlightened selfishness," is as far
removed as the poles, from selfishness, in the usual

terest, there is reason to hope for progress and perma

e!f interest, in its altruistic sense of "enlightened

The dead in this 'war already number 50 times the
whole mobile regular army of the United States. The
mounded so far number 150 times the whole mobile
regular army of the United States. i
Approximately eaeithird of ill the men who have
been engaged in all the armies have already been either
lolled or wounded.
To state the death list in another way: W.e now
have fonr regiments of regular troops here and. parts
of other regiments; if the entire hrigade were killed
today, replaced tomorrow with another brigade, and
each day as many troops as the total number on this
station were annihilated, it -would take a year, at the
rate of a brigade a day, to equal the death list in 'the
European war thus far.
Each day, on the average, since the war began,
soldiers equal in number to one-tenth of El Paso's total
population have been killed, and soldiers equal in num
ber 'to one-third of El Paso's total population have been
wounded. In other words, soldiers have been killed and
wounded on the average at the rate of 18 every minute,
26,000 every day, since the war began imagine half
the population of El Paso killed or wounded today, the
other' half tomorrow, and this rate of devastation kept
up across the country, and you get some faint idea of
what the slaughter means.
Men are not cattle. They are not being driven to
the slaughter; they are going voluntarily; they" could
refrain from fighting, any time they liked, and thus
cause the war to cease; but that would not be human
nature. It would mean the ruin of any government or
any dynasty that consented, after such awful human
sacrifce, to quit the war now without obtaining seme
substantial material advantage. A force has been set
in motion that is going to be harder to control than
it was to release. .
Wanted Plays For Children
Railroads Develop Conscience
Short Snatches From Everywhere
It is unfortHnate that so few plays are fit for
children, when children have such a deep hanger for
plays and theater going. Shakspere being so rarely
played deprives the children more than it does the
older folk, for the children genuinely like some of the
Shakspere plays. Boys delight in and understand Julius
Caesar and Macbeth and the historical plays, while the
girls always like Romeo and Juliet, the Merchant of
Venice, As You Like It, Twelfth Night and Winter's
Tale. Most boys and girls like Shakspere when it is
The standard of plays for children is that they
should set for them higher ideals and show them more
justly life's real punishments and rewards and the
value of loyalty and faithfulness than most modern
plays do. The play which exalts riches or luck or high
living or extravagance or indifference to marriage or
motherhood, is apt to be degrading to children who
are like wax sentimentally long after they begin to
harden and be their own mold and form mentally.
Railroads like cities are developing consciences. quite
fast Not only do railroads now take pride in not
kilting off folks and in having sober employes from
track walker up, but pullman cars are not necessarily
overheated, dining car meals are almost always ran on
the "order what you want and pay for it" plan, porters
invariably return lost pocketbooks and jewelry and risk
their own lives as a matter of course in accidents; yea
can quite safely plan to leave one city at 2 urinates
after 7 and get to another city at 6 minutes after 2
on the second day after; the 8:15 generally gees eat
on time and always gets to its other end on time,
galloping a little faster the night hoars and making
up lost time, if any; the things to eat are good, the
beds are clean, no time is lost, and for all this all that
is asked of the passenger (beside the price of a ticket,
plus the price of the pullman, plus the price of his
meals, plus tips to the porter and waiters) is that he
do not stkk his head or hands out of the window or
otherwise endanger himself.

Spring In Europe
THE balmy spring should stir up aH men to labors sane, but over there in
Yujrup they're planting men, not grain. The plow's unnsed and dusty,
with rust the hoe is red; the cultivator trusty stands idle in the, shed.
Red is the stream that washes its pathway to the sea; they're planting men, not"
squashes what shall the harvest be? They're planting men, not pumpkins, be
neath the bright spring sky; they're sowing poor dead bumpkins who fought and
knew not why; they're planting men in furrows, among the clods and stones, and
there the gopher burrows among the soldiers' bones. Oh, what a foolish sewing,
in Europe's sodden plain, while here the crops are growing in sun and wind and
rain! In this fair land the farmer is sowing wheat with drills; o'er "there the
gents in armor are planting men in hills; they plant, the peasant's yard in, the
victims of their biffs, the common or the garden variety of stiffs. Oh, Europe, old
and hoary, yon ought to have more sense; your agriculture gory, that's now in
evidence, is wicked, vain and foolish; the seed is out of style; the tools you use
are ghoulish, the crops you'll raise are vile.
