EL PASO HERALD EDITORIAL and MAGAZINE PAGE Fall Work In Yards The Horse Show The Budget Fund - Pulling For El Paso Short Snatches From Everywhere I If you would have a good yard next spring, and summer, now is the time to prepare for it. The grass is dying, the trees have dropped their leaves and the vines are dead. It is now safe to tear up the earth and prepare it for the spring planting and the summer development. The sooner this is done, the better con dition the soil will be in when growing time arrives All flower beds should be prepared now; the grass should also be fertilized now for next year. Throw manure onto the dead grass and water it once in awhile. The substance will soak down into the soil and next year it wfll be there to give life and growth to your rass. Dig up the beds, stir in manure and leave them for the elements to act upon. It will not hurt to wet them down a few times, as this will assist in bringing about the chemical action necessary to the creation of gocd soil. Turn over the earth every once in awhile during the winter a fork is better than a shovel and it is also easier to handle. This exposes all the earth at various times, permits air to enter, and thoroughly mixes the dirt with the fertilizer. By spring there will be no lumps to bum up what you plant. It will all have amalgamated into loose, rich soil. It will not hurt to put fertilizers around the trees now, too, but trees should not have much water only a little watering once in awhile during the winter if the season remains very dry. The fertilizer will work down into the ground if the soil is stirred once in awhile and next spring it will make the trees grow better. Trees, plants and shrubs will not grow year after year -without attention. Winter is the best time to give them this attention. While preparing beds, it would also be well to- plant some of the spring flowers. Lark spurs, hollyhocks and many others might be planted right now. They will not be affected by the cold and win be early bloomers. For spring bulb blossoms, put the bulbs out now. Bury them deep enough to protect them from the cold and see that the ground is moistened occaionalIy. If you would have a green yard this winter, sow Australian rye seed in the dead Bermuda grass right away. These seed will come up quickly and you will have a green yard in a month. It will remain green all winter, or until the Bermuda comes out again. Those who have planted the Australian grass instead of Bermuda, still have green yards. This grass grows the year round in El Paso, but it requires fertilizing in the fall. Becent experiments show that the fer tilized grass is growing much better than the grass not so treated. This grass stood the summer well, so its adaptability to El Paso is established. It is safe to put it out as an all-year grass if it is given plenty of water and the proper care. It is easily transplanted where bare spots occur for any cause. Notwithstanding that the horse is fast disappearing from use as a commercial and domestic animal, that he is still popular is evidenced by the interest Jaken in his horseship at the shows held this time of the year in most of the large cities. It is always an event of fashion and gayety, and not one whit less in this day of the automobile than a few years ago when the horse performed all our domestic work. As a matter of fact, if there is any difference, the horse show is more popular these days than in the years past. Not so accustomed to him every day, the admirers of the horse seem to appreciate him more, to love him better, and on occasions when he is on parade, there is always a generous response to the invitation to pay him homage. El Paso has this year enlisted the assistance of the possessors of some of the finest horse blood in the country and numerous prize winners will be seen at the El Paso show today and tomorrow. Fashion and society have joinid in making the event a success, and, 2s in other cities, it is going to prove one of the big social features of the year. It is always good to look upon beautiful horseflesh, to watch and marvel at the almost human intelligence of the animals, so long the very good friend of man and humanity. It is a healthy diversion; it leads to a better appreciation of animal life, to a more tender affection for the dumb creatures, and it also brings people into the open, to fill their lungs with the crisp, fresh air and is altogether worth while. Let everybody go to the horse show. Evidence your appreciation of the efforts of those promoting it, enjoy an afternoon's entertainment and better yourself by the recreation and the lesson it will teach. We are apt to forget too many things in these times of hurry and excitement; the dumb creatures make us realize that there is something in life besides just people and ma chines. Association with animals gives people a kindly feel ing for them; leads to appreciation of their feelings, their sensibilities, their comforts and their discomforts. It is good for us to have these sensibilities awakened, o Yuma county won 230 ribbons at the Arizona state fair this year and is so justly proud of it that every body is now enthusing over the prospect of a Yuma county fair next year. It would be held ahead of the state fair and the prie winning county products then sent to the Phoenix show. o When we have the new census taken, we can't be too careful about seeing that every person is enumerated. Five years ago we checked the government men, you'll recall, and found a lot of names they missed. We want all of them in. It is gratifying the support the budget fund is re ceiving from the business men of the city, those first seen have met every expectation of the president and the directors, in the amounts of their subscriptions. As The Herald has pointed out, this is not a dona tion; it is an investment. El Paso is contributing to a fund from which it expects to get many fold returns, and, with the expenditure made along the lines pledged by the directors of the chamber of commerce, there is no question about the returns being all that are expected. We know what we are going after; just what we need the money for; just where it will be spent. We know that the money we invest in the International Irrigation congress meeting, in the International Farm congress and Soil Products exposition, and in the con vention of the American National Live Stock associa tion will be money well spent. We know that the money we have spent in the past in advertising has brought results. We know that if we spend more, the results will be greater. We are not going into anything blindly. Every merchant in El Paso win profit as a result of the things the budget fund will accomplish. Every citizen will also profit. N Mayor Tom Lea has set a splendid example for the individuals by agreeing to give $10 a month of his salary for the next year for the budget fund a total of $120. This should be an example for other individuals and doubtless will be. The chamber of commerce directors have carefully gone over their lists and apportioned the amounts they think the different business men and firms should give. They have been careful and considerate in tieir work and have tried to so equalize the matter that no man nor firm will be asked for more than he can afford or out of proportion to his earnings. These officers hope that nobody will attempt to cut the amounts asked. They hope that every business or professional nvn will be ready to meet them and talk over the matter when the comroitee calls, as the men making the solicitations are giving up their own time for the good of the cause. They are also subscribing to the fund. They are doing their work for nothing and arc entitled to the assistance and thanks of every business man in El Paso. They should be encouraged and helped, not hampered in their work. Those roads leading into Fort Bliss should certainly receive early attention. If we expect the government to give us a greater post, we must show our apprecia tion of what it has already done. Brinks never make a man brighter as a talker. They merely take away some of his natural timidity and make him think he has the ability to -go ahead. It is too bad that we can't have united action on everything that is good for El Paso. It is too bad that we cannot always go ahead with a plan without first having to consult this or that business interest. El Paso ought to get over this. Every El Pasoan should join with every other El Pasoan in doing everything he can for the benefit of EI Paso. If something is planned that will cause El Pas to be talked about; that will make the city better; hat will arouse a spirit of sentiment and good will, it is too bad that personal likes and dislikes should interfere with it. The best location for any event should always be selected. All will benefit in the end. Everything cent always be put just where it will please everybody, bat if it is going to redound to the benefit and credit of the city, it should be supported by all the people of the city. If a, convention hall, for instance, can't be placed in the eastern end of the city, and the best location is the western end, then it should receive the hearty support of all the city. If a bridge can't be put on one street, but can be put on another, why not unite for the street where it can be put? Better this than having no bridge at all. If a Christmas tree can't be erected in ooe sec tion of the city because of lack of space, then why net have it in another section where there is space? It is going to bring people downtown. It is going to make visitors talk favorably about 'El Paso. Once the people get downtown for any reason, they don't spend their money in one place they "ramble all around" as the song goes. It is better to bring them downtown to one section and let them ramble to others than not to bring them at all. It is better to consider every proposition from the broad view of what it will do for El Paso rather than "what will it do for me?" Everybody will profit if everybody pulls for El Paso. "All for one and one for all" should be the EI Pase motto in everything. o Phoenix Kotarians have taken ever the hotel at Castle Hot Springs for the night of December 4 and will make the trio to the resort in their cars, accom panied by their wives and sweethearts.

Cigars are made of tobacco and near tobacco and almost tobacco and alleged jn1 psudo and quondam and quasi tobacco. They are like great singers. They go best under foreign names. This prejudice has filled our country with "La Ropera," "Burns "Vila" and "San Queroseno" cigars, any one of which would smell as energeti cally under the American translation. In fact, the choice of a, name for a ci gar is much more important than the choice of tobacco. A "Colorado Clara" J cigar will sell nicely, but any manu- facturer who put a "Missouri Mabel" cigar on the market would be ruined in a month. When a manufacturer has ' secured a good free burning name and a gilt and pink corset which will at tract the eye, he is so well satisfied that he frequently doesn't bother about picking out anv tobacco at all.
