There was dignity in it much the

the oetaston was momentous and
called for dismity. Peace treaties are
not considered every day. The presi

The meeting was held in the big east

ranged typewriters, desks and facili

some relay of expert stenographers,
who after taking down about 15

Climatic Conditions Excellent
For Growing Cotton, For Which
Is Made "Ivory" For The Toilet
COTTON Is destined to become one
of the big crops in the El Paso
territory, in the opinion of Roland
Harwell, director of the chamber of
commerce agricultural bureau. Mr.
Harwell has been watching the expe
riments of the Ivy-Dale company In

he says the results were highly satis

It now has about TOO acres In cotton.
Their efforts are being duplicated bv
the people of the Island district with
similar success.
Climatic Conditions tollable.
"Cotton of the Mevane variety will
grow here readily. It is medium sta
ple and measures about one and one

crop grown here. And It is also high
ly valuable in reclaiming areas from

The farm agent called up the Unit
ed States weather bureau to find out
how much time there is on an aver
age between the last killing frost of
the spring and the first in the fall, for
shortness of season has retarded at
tempts here to grow cotton. He found
that the last killing frost of spring
usuallv was around March 20 and the
first killing frost of autumn around
November 10. allowing sufficient time
for the growth of medium staple
cotton.

Prenldent Final Appeal.
Mr. Wilson made a final appeal for
an unamended treaty, though he
clearly showed that he did not oppose
the program repeatedly suggested of
putting America's understanding of
the treaty in a joint resolution and
passing it separately.
And this may be the outcome of
It. although many of the senator
WfTf not Inclined to accept Mr.
Wilnns jodinnent of irhnt would
happen If they did Qualify the
treaty irlth reservations, but they
kneiv that Mr. "Wilson warned
them nnd they must be ready to
Accept the political responsibility
of delaying the treaty or brine
Insr about situations irhleh Mr.
Wilson forecast might arise.
Also, It is the beginning of Mr. Wil
son's appeal to the country. He will
continue to issue statements of ex
planation if necessary, and if the
senate overrules bis judgments and
puts reservations in the treaty, he
will withdraw the pact and begin ne
gotiations again, but the very air
breathed comoromise and without in
dulging an excess oX optimism, one
got the impression that at last the
president and senate were ret tine to
gether In the kind of heart to heart
talk that would have helped matters
a great deal two or rive months ago.
Anvway. both sides have been com
pelled to come out in the open at last
The line of cleavage Is being- drawn
and before another week the ultimate
fate or the treaty will be known.

une ot tne most valuable qualities
of pyroxylin plastic compound Is the
wzue range or imitations or more ex
pensive materials fabricated from It
Among these are ivory, mother of
peart coral, tortoise shell, amber,
bone, horn, ebony, onyx, marble and
turquoise.
It is in no sense a substitute for th
various substances of wbi'h it is made
up in imitation. As a matter of prac
tical, commercial fact pyroxylin is
superior In many respects to the gen
uine article.
Lots of Good Qualities.
It Is easily worked, is durable, will
not rust corrode nor tarnish. It may be
washed without injury, with soap and
water, and will not crack or splinter.
One of the qualities in which it sur
passes most of the other materials Is
its plasticity. By heating in water it
can be softened and moulded.
Ivory or mother of pearl can only be
carved, a fact that adds greatly to the
original heavy cost. Pyroxylin can
aiso do carved satisfactorily, if de- !
sired. '
The oe real drawback to the use of i
pyroxylin in the minds ot the public
Its inflammability has been over- t
com largely through improvements
in methods of manufacture. j
There are only four manufacturers :
of the baste pyroxylin plastic com- 1
pound In the United States. All of
them make toilet articles from their
own stock.
Other manufacturers of toilet goods
buy the raw material, or order it made
according to their own specifications
as to color and style, and make it up
into the finished product in their own
factories.
The product is their own just as
much as it would be if made of wood
or ivory."
