From Coast and Valley
Plentiful In Market
Novelties do not abound in the
market now, but good things do.
Fruits and vegetables of the very best
that nature can provide, fresh from
the valley, or just arrived from Cali
fornia, are here. Prices vary con
siderably according to the store and
the location, but on the whole all the
prices are reasonable, for the produce
is of excellent quality. Avocados
still tempt the appetite at 25 cents
each. Summer oranges range from 30
to 44 cents a dozen. Peaches, big,
fuzzy skinned ones, are three pounds
for a quarter, as are plums of various
kinds, pears, huge, juicy ones just
waiting to be bitten, and apples.
Cooking apples may be bought, six
pounds for a quarter. Honey Dew
melons are now 15 cents each, grape
fruit three for a quarter, cantaloupes
from ew Mexico six for a quarter.
Watermelons are now 1 1-4 cents a
pound, and are excellent, although the
season is nearly over.
Vegetables are delightfully cheap
and very good. Irish potatoes are
eight pounds for two bits; onions
come at the same price; green beans
three pounds for a quarter; black
eyed peas 10 cents a pound; tomatoes.
six pounds for a quarter; egg plant,
two pounds for a quarter. Bell pep
pers and chili peppers are both ten
cents a pound. eai Louisiana yellow
yams are four pounds for z cents.
Variety can be had at the table of
eveij housewife in El Paso if she
watches the market closely, for the
treasures of the farm and the kitchen
garden are close at hand.

State laws differ very much on this
question. Individuals mature at ages
which vary greatly. I have known
girls from 20 to 24 who were in no
sense mature women. Generally 17
represents youth, not womanhood:
and all youth has a real claim on
the protection of maturity. I myself
feel that most girls of 20 or under
are still children. As for being fully
responsible for her actions, a gin
who is as young as 17 surely has not

herself, knowledge of human nature

for everything she does. Any man

'TVhen my mother left here the
other day for a visit to my sister at
Moscow. Texas, a trip she has been
wanting to take for a long time, but
conldn't until now on account of rheu
matism, ahe was one of the happiest
persons I ever saw. and I don't doubt
but that her friends there will soon
find out from her what Tanlac has
done for her." This statement was
made by J. T. Watts, a well known
grocer, who lives at 500 North Stan
ton street, in a conversation with a
Tanlac representative, a few days
"Mother has always been In good
health," continued Mr. Watts, "until
about a year and a half ago, wnen
she was taken with rheumatism in
btr shoulders, arms and back. We
bought many different sorts of medi
cines for her but she kept getting
worse and for the past eight months
she has suffered torture. She was
laid up in bed for several days at a
time and was unable to turn over
without help. She lost her appetite
and fell off until she weighed only
about ninety-six pounds.
"After reading In the papers about
Tanlac relieving others here in El Paso
of rheumatism, we decided to get
mother to try it, and the results have
certainly been remarkable. Tanlac
has not only relieved the rheumatism
but her appetite is splendid and she's
enjoying good health, especially fine
for one her age. When she left for
Moscow she took two bottles of Tan
lac along, saying she didn't want to
take the chance of being without it.
tjf course we are all delighted over
what It has done for her and It's a
pleasure to recommend a medicine
that does eo much good."

with flesh building cream. Or. better
yet, hold them in a small saucer of
olive oil for a about five minutes. It
is easy to fill a couple of saucers
with oil. place them on the table and
rest the elbows in them. Then mas

wipe off the surplus.
If you use cream, massage It into
the skin using the fingers of the
other hand, and working round and!
round the point of the elbow.
And if you intend going out right
away, powder the elbows to prevent
any shiny look. At once they will
look better. Meantime wear long

And there was a most beautiful one,
with green glossy leaves and bright
ni, berries on. which -look so pretty
at fchristroas time.
-QooAV cried the bunny rabbit gen
tleman. "That's a dandy bush." and
he began to dig it from the earth ,
with the shovel. !
"I'll help." said Jackie, and he did:
with his Daws that he used for dig
ging holes to hide bones away from
his brother Feetie.
"Ouch!" suddenly cried Jackie, as
he was pawing away at the roots of
the holly bush.
"What's the matter?" asked Uncle
Wiggily taking a rest while he
twinkled his pink nose.
"Something ll!te a worn prlcKea

all of a sudden, out of the woods
lumped a bad old fox.
"Ah ha'" cried the fox. "This is my

With that he gave a jump down

Indeed he did not! Instead of land

No matter how well you know fine cars, scores of fea

These are examples of the extra values which efficiency
methods can give. And they are fine examples. All are pro
duced complete chassis and body under John W. Bate,
the efficiency expert. And in a model plant, where up-to-date
methods have cut labor cost in two.
We have taken pains to learn what
features men and women want And
they are all in the latest Mitchells.
There are 31 features rarely fonnd
in cars. These include a power tire
pump, dashboard engine primer, re
versible headlights, etc
There are shock-absorbing springs,
found on no other car. They make the
Mitchell the easiest-riding car. In two
years since we adopted this feature:
not a single spring has broken.
There are surprising luxuries and
beauties. In the past
year we have added 25 per
cent to the cost of finish,
upholstery and trimming.
There is heat -fixed
finish which stays new.
There is extra-grade
leather which lasts. There
is a light in the tonneau,
a locked compartment,
handles for entering, and
countless dainty touches.
There are all the at

is the 100 per cent over-strength. In
