DEDICATED TO THE SERVICE OF THE PEOPLE, THAT NO GOOD CAUSE SHALL LACK A CHAMPION, AND THAT EVIL SHALL NOT THRIVE UNOPPOSED
,TT
HE HEART OF WOMAN AS
A
DRIVING FORCE IN MAN'S
WHY should it be thought that increasing the
direct influence of women in political matters
would reduce the chances of war? On senti
mental grounds it is often contended that since women
are the chief sufferers in war, they would cause war
to cease if they could. But history in all ages and
among all peoples shows clearly that war has been
supported if not fostered by women, at least as much
as by men.
This fact is so patent to all who have any knowledge
of past events, that it does not need proof or elabora
tion. We have just had a new demonstration, in the
c-ants in Italy. Only yesterday it was told in the
dispatches how "a crowd, composed chiefly of women,
invaded the square on which faces the palace of the
jjovemcr, cried 'Death to Francis Joseph, burned an
Austrian flag, together with the portrait of the em
peror, and attempted to attack the palace. The gov
ernor ordered gendarmes to charge, and the women re
tired, fighting stubbornly; 47 women were killed and
over 300 injured."
This is by no means an isolated or exceptional case.
These who read the proceedings of the Women's Peace
congress at The Hague a few days ago must have been
struck with the fact that women are among the fore
most advocates of war. The delegates agreed upon the
evils of war considered abstractly, but no definite action
toward peace was possible because national and race
differences caused the war spirit to break out again
and again among the delegates. Facing facts in the
present, the women could only follow natural impulse
and urge the men to fight the war out to a finish.
We Americans do not need to go further back than
half a century to find where the women of this country,
as a whole, stand upon the war question. Even today, in
many parts of the north and south, the women who
passed through the war period, and their daughters and
granddaughters, retain a far greater degree of bitterness
than do the men who passed through the war, or than
the descendants in the male line.
The two sides of the question of war, from the
woman's standpoint, are given in the following quota
tion from Jane Addams, and in the appended quotations
from remarks of delegates to the Women's Peace con
gress at The Hague; said Jane Addams to the New
York Times, just before sailing for Europe to the peace
congress:
"At the present moment women In Europe are
being: toJd: "Bring; children into the world for the
benefit of the nation; for the strengthening of future
battle-lines: forget everything that you have been
taught to hold dear; forget your long straggle to
establish the responsibilities of fatherhood; forget all
but the appetite of war for human flesh. It must be
satisfied and you must be the ones to feed it, cost
what it may.' That Is war's message to the world of
women. Is It wonderful that they resent It. shudder
at itr'
But at the congress, in the midst of what one paper
calls peace-at-any-price-talk," a Belgian delegate, Mile.
Hamer, said: '
"I am a Belgian before everything, and I can not
think as ypu do. There can be no peace without
Justice. The war must continue until the Belgians'
wrongs have been righted. There must be no media
tion except at the bar of justice."
And Mrs. Lillingston, of England, who claimed to
"represent millions of women who favor the present
war just as much as do the men," said:
"One hundred and eighty women are said to be
waiting at Tilbury to come to this congress to talk
peace. For every one of those, 1000 English women
are willing to accompany their sons and husbands
to fight
In case of a war being imminent today, it is probable
that the men would find themselves driven into battle,
not so much by the actual urging of womankind, as by
the inner -sense of what is expected of them. Few
women could have quite the same respect for a shirker,
in time of national crisis, as they would have for a man
who sprang to do his 'public duty. It would" be the
women who would pray for success in arms while also
praying for peace; it would be the women who would
present the battle flags, shower roses upon the soldiers
marching to war, and pin emblems of courage upon their
uniforms.
After all, it goes to support the oft expressed convic
tion of The Herald that the world changes but slowly.
Conditions as between the two sexes in the matter of
fighting are not so very greatly different from those of
knightly days, when each man fought for his lady fair.
It would be very hard to picture to one's mind an
American mother, wife, or daughter who would use
her influence to keep son, husband, or father out of
war if the national crisis should come. On the con
trary, with tears in her eyes, each would say "Go at
once, if yon would not dishonor me." The "Spartan
mother" has been glorified in all ages, and she lives
today, and influences men's minds to regard honor as
something higher than merely hanging on to one's
thread of life.
This is partly due to the fine development in woman
kind of the spirit of sacrifice. Woman knows that she
is the greatest sufferer in war, and yet she suffers
proudly, sacrificing what she loves most dearly; it is
one way to worship, one way to love. It is a passion
as hard to explain as love itself, yet its power cannot
be denied. It may be hard for a childless woman to
understand how a mother can send her son into war
with a pathetic smile of sad encouragement and a
caress of prideful love yet the mother sends the son,
and rejoices in him even unto death.
If any comparison be wise, it is probably safe to say
tha men would probably be more conservative than
women in deciding upon war not because the men are
less courageous, but because they see more different
sides of the question and more comprehensively sense
the effects of war, than women do. Woman's impulse
is, in a way, more elemental, more fundamental, far
more direct and dynamic, than man's mind. Mind tells
us that war is illogical and wasteful; impulse tells us
that it may sometimes become necessary if the race is
to conserve any ideal which elevates principle above
the instinct to save one's skin.
It is doubtful if any considerable number of people
in the world have yet convinced themselves that war is
always morally wrong. Morality is relative. Morality
is a meaningless term unless it signify the positive
supremacy of good over evil. Until moral force is much
more perfectly developed in the world than it is today,
it appears that, to defend against annihilation, the
choice to take up arms and slay must at times be made
and acted upon. It does not appear that women, on the
whole, admit even the debatability of this question.
The end of war is more likely to come eventually
through the action of men, grounded in economic con
siderations, than through the action of women, grounded
in sentimental considerations.
Certainly women did not bring on the present war in
Europe, or have anything to do with starting it; but
women will prolong it; women will sustain it, long
after the men have begun to weary of it. And this,
too. in spite of the fact that war drives the knife
straight to the heart of woman after inflicting horrible
torture upon her. Hers is the greater sacrifice, and if
it be needless, or if it be wrong, it is nevertheless
magnificent. Even though, by a word, she might cause.
GHT FOR RIGHT
(BYH.D.S.)
her knight to stay at her side in safety, yet she with
holds the word, knowing that the lance aimed at his
breast may cleave her own heart- It would be interest
ing to know how much of what we call the courage of
men in this world really proceeds from the hearts of
women.
Art, in sculpture, painting, and cartoon, in poetry
and prose, in all ages has drawn the figure of woman
weeping over her dead warrior-lover. Art can show a
woman weeping, but art cannot show a woman's joy
in sacrifice. Few indeed are the women, heart-torn by
war who would pray to have returned to them, by
some miracle, their lovers safe bat dishonored. A
woman would rather mourn over her dead than apologize
for the living. In the question of war, when some
vital issue seems to be involved, woman's voice says,
to son, husband, or father, "Will you go, or shall I go
in your place?" It is a mystery, perhaps, but it is
truth.
Women sense the inner honor of war's tortures
more keenly than mn; but schooled as they are to
suffering physical, mental, spiritual women do not
shrink from it. They meet it face forward, and the
sacrifices they make to their nation and their race
are as glorious and as worshipful as the sacrifices they
make to motherhood or to any other form of service to
the world. And Man is more afraid of Woman'g scorn
than he is of death.
Nevertheless, it is necessary to make sure, when any
act of violence is contemplated, that it really will serve
the race and promote its progress. Judging by present
standards of human morals, it iA not the act of killing
that is deemed wrong, but rather a mistaken choice
of objKts to kill. The willingness to sacrifice self,
dignifies in a measure the act of violence, but does
not (always justify it.

Moves Without Being Told:
Witk Job As Otters Start
A HUSTLER Is a man who doesn't
depend on a policeman to tell
him to keep moving.
The hustler is readily distinguished
by the fact that he is just getting
through with a job of work. This dis
tinguishes him at once from the busy
man who is always just about to tackle
& job of work a soon as he can get
something else off of his hands.
The dictionary says a hustler is a
man who pushes or crowds rudely.
Those who have seen a hustler backing
a big job off the map and elbowing his
way through three days' work for a
lazy man between sunup and supper
tune will agree with the definition.
The hustler never begins the day by
telling how much he has to da He is
always too busy in the early morning
to talk. Later on when he has finished
his big job and is looking "around for
a few scattering tasks he may tell how
hard he has worked. But it is very dif
ficult to induce a hustler to stop and
tell you how hard he is going to work.
He prefers to let you wateh. him and
learn for yourself.
Several companies tried in a desul-

Flow a half section of land as cheer
fully and as eagerly as some other
, farmers come In to dinner.
no very startling results, but a few
years ago the hustlers got hold of the
job. Pretty soon the steam shovel
crews were fighting over the question
of which one could get out the most
rock In a day. When this occurred it
was felt on all sides that the canal
job was licked and might as weM give
in gracefully.
The hustler likes a brg Job of work
because he can dive into it and stay
several days without taking breath.
The larger the job the more fiercely he
tackles it. The reason why some farm
ers gradually accumulate land until
they die, mourned by an entire town
ship, is because they go out to plow
a half section of land as cheerfully and
eagerly as some other farmers come in
to dinner.
It Is very hard to work for a hustler
because he is always fixing up some
tremendous task for his employes to do
while they are resting. On the whole
it is preferable to be a hustler and
work for an easy going, unworrled
man. As a rule after a hustler has
worked for this sort of man for a few
years his employer turns the business
over to him with a sigh of relief.
Bedtime Story For tke Little O

"Uncle Wiggily Helps Jimmie Caw-Caw."
By HOWARD B. GARIS.
nNCLE WIGGILY LONGEARS. the
rabbit gentleman, was out in the
yard behind his hollow stump
bungalow, blowing hot air into the hol
low German Bologna sausage tires' of
his automobile with a putty blower be
longing to Bully No-Tail, the frong boy.
'Are jou going lor a ride?" asked
Jimmie Caw-Caw. the crow boy, as he
stood -with his head on one side, 'watch
ing' the rabbit gentleman.
Tec," uncle Wiggily answered, T am
going to take a lttle ride. But what
are you doing. Jimmie? Hive you been
hiding something again?"
"Oh, it's only a spoon," said the crow
boy, who, as you know, always seemed
to oe hiding away bright and shining
objects. It's only a spoon I caught up
from the kitchen table."
Just then Nurse Jane Fuzzy-Wuzzy,
the muskrat lady housekeper. came to
the door of the hollow stump bungalow.
Mv cake spoon' The spoon that I
-was using to stir up the chocolate cab
bage cake" cried the muskrat lady.
It is gone' Have you seen it. Uncle
Wiggily"" she asked anxious-like.
Uncle Wiggily looked at Jimmie, the
crow Now, whatever else Jimmie did,
h never told a "story."
' I I took the cake spoon!" he con
fessed. "I I hid it in Uncle WIggiirs
airship'"
"Bring it back right away, please,"
said Nurse Jane. "And don't hide any
more of my things, Jimmie. Oh, dear.
I don't know what to do about you!"
"1 11 take him for a ride in my auto
mobile." said Uncle Wiggily. That,
will keep him out of mischief for a
time'"
'Oh, joy!" rm going for an auto
Tide' I'm going for an auto ride!" cried
Jimmie. "Oh, joy! Oh, happiness.""
"But too must be good!" insisted the
rabbit gentleman, as he sprinkled a
little salt and horseradish on the Ger
man bologna sausage tires to make
the wheels go 'round very fast. "You
xnusn't pick holes in the turnip steer
ing wheel of my auto, Jimmie, nor fly
away with the doodle-oodle-um, or you
can't go "
I'll be good," promised Jimmie. But
you just wateh and see what he does.
Uncle Wiggily finished blowing hot
air through the hollow macaroni stick
into the sausage tires, and then he
started off, with Jimmie Caw-Caw
perched on the seat beside him.
"Don't forget to bring me some sticky
flypaper," Nurse Jane called after the
rabbit gentleman, "and also a bottle
of maple sirup, for your cheese cake."
' Oh, I'll be sure to remember the ma
ple sirup." Uncle Wiggily said.
"aid the sticky flypaper, rbo," Nurse
Jane spoke
'That will surely stick to ray memo
ry' the rabbit gentleman laughed.
on and on, over the fields and
though the woods rode Uncle WlggHy
and the black crow boy. And; Jimmie
was verv good at least for a time,
t nele 'Wiggily paid a little visit to
Grandfather Goosey Gander, the goose
gentleman, and all Jimmie did was to
hide rrandpa's spectacles in the milk
pitcher, and drop some prickly chest
nut burrs in Mrs. Goosey's bed. But
that was nothing to the tricks that
rrow boy sometimes played; not mean
ing to be bad, either. He just couldn't
help it.
Finally Uncle Wiggily reached the
store, and bought the sheet of sticky
fly paper, and the bottle of maple si
rup, which had a cork in, so the sweet
stuff, for cheese cakes, would not spill
out
' Now for a nice run home!" Uncle
Wiggily exclaimed, as he tickled the
tmker-um tankeram qf his auto and
sprmkled talcum powder on the ker-sneeze-i-kiff
to make it jump over the
hillr places more easily.
Have I been a good crow boy this
trip' asked Jimmie, when they were
E"-arly Home I
"Pretty good so far, but we are not
quite home to the hollow stump bunga
low yet." answered the rabbit, with a
smile that made his nose twinkle like a
gilt star on top1 of a Christmas tree.
Pretty soon Uncle Wiggily"s auto was
in front of the home of Nannie and Bil
lie WaStaiL the goat children.
"Oh. do come In, just for a minute,"
begged Uncle Butter, the nice billpost
lng goat gentleman. "I want to show
you some new , horn-polish I just
bought."
"Well, only for a minute," said Uncle
Wiggily. "Now be good, Jimmie." he
salr to the crow boy, who was left out
side in the auto.
Well, Jimmie meant to be good, but
really he forgot. First, he opened the
package of sticky flypaper, just to see
wbat it looked like. He left it, opened,
with the sticky side up on the automo
bile seat. Then Jimmie said:
"I wonder If I cbuld pull the cork out
of that maple syrup bottle? If I could,
I would save nurse Jane the trouble. 111
try. anyhow.
With his sharp bill, Jimmie Caw-Caw
aimed a blow at the cork In the bottle.
"Zing!" went his bill far down Into
the soft cork, but when Jimmie tried to
pull out the cork he could not do it,
nor could he get his bill loose. It was
stuck In the cork!
"Oh, dear!" cried Jimmie, dancing'
around, only he could not dance very
far With a heavy bottle of maple syrup
fast to his bill. "Oh. dear!" he croaked,
and then. Just as you have probably
guessed, into the sticky flypaper
stepped the crow boy. Pitter-patter-pop!
And then! Oh, dear! Wasn't Jimmie
stuck up. He could not move his feet
nor his bUL
His feet were caught in the sticky
flypaper, and his bill was fast in the
cork. And just then along came the
fnuny tiger, from whom Jimmie had
once taken the diamond ring, when the
funny tiger had caught uncle Wiggily.
"Oh, nows a good chance to tickle
that crow chap." He can't get away!
laughed the funny tiger.
"Oh. please don't tickle me!" begged
Jimmie. But the tiger was just going
to, only at that moment uncle Wiggily
ran out of uncle Butter's house and
droTe the funny tiger away with tal
cum powder. Then the rabbit gentleman
poured warm water on the flypaper, to
get Jimmie's feet loose, and uncle Wig
gily, with uncle Butter's help, pulled
the crow boy's bill out of the cork.
"Never do- that again!" said the
rabbit.
"I never will," promised Jimmie. Then
he and uncle Wiggily safely reached
the hollow stump bungalow. And in the

BACON .JUDBROTHER was a busy
man, yet the busier he grew the
more devotedly he seemed to love
his charming little wife. It really came
to be quite a problem. It took time

he was traveling and had to read his
wife's 22-page letters.
But as soon as he took up the study
of efficiency, all was made clear.
"Mimilaya." he explained to her,
"there is no reason on earth why love,
as well as anything else in life, can't
be boiled down, compressed and econ

you send me letters, think hard and
put all you have to say in as short a
space as possible. I know it will take
a lot of thinking, but it's never too

realized the letter meant: "Bought,

through booklets on the trains
and in the principal railroad
offices is very effective," said C L.
Cracken, formerly of Galveston. "I first
read about EI Paso and Its oppor
tunities while traveling to California. I
was so impressed that I stopped off
here on my way back and found that
the city in every way lived up to its
prospectus. I had not been here a day
before I decided that this city offered
better opportunities in every line than
any city I had visited In Texas and I
immediately decided to make my future
home here. Aside from the business op
portunities the city has a climate that
cannot be surpassed and this, 'coupled
-with Its modern improvements and op
portunities, makes it the foremost city

end of the war in Mexico is the belief
of the great majority of foreigners in
Mexico," said Woodward Munson. for
merly of Puebla. "The foreigners figure
that who ever is victorious in Europe
will immediately set about protecting
its nationals in other countries that are
at war. It Is pointed out that the victor
will be on a full war footing and wlil
thus be ready to take irntnedate action,
whereas action would have been de
ferred had not the nation already bees
in position to carry on a vigorous cam
paign. I have talked with foreigners
from many sections, both north and
south and I have found but few who
do not believe that there will be vigor

the European war closes."
"In order to fittingly decorate all of
the graves of the soldiers, in the ceme
taries of El Paso, a great quantity of
flowers will be seeded." said Mrs. Caro

are those of soldiers who have so rela
tives llvin here now. Many other
graves are occupied by unknown sol
diers and the soldiers buried at Fort
Bliss also have no relatives here to
place flowers on their graves on
Memorial day so the Daughters of the
American Revolution and the United
Daughters of the Confederacy are
working so that every grave will have
a wreath of Teen and fresh flowers on
Memorial day. There are a boat 358
soldiers' graves in El Paso and these
will need a srr eat-many flowers. Every
one who has a flower garden or anv
sort of blossoming shrubs should spare
some of these for the soldiers' graves
on Memorial day. If the flowers are
taken to Mrs. R. H. Thome's home m

of May 39. they will be distributed to
