This is a necessity tie thinking men of tie city lave realized SCHOOL DA YS Copyrtrhi. 1115. tr By D WIG lor years. It lias been said by United States reclamation officials that there, is so instance in the United States where a corocitmity has so far completely failed to meet the situa tion as the Rio Grande valley has. Here the great Ele phant Butte protect has been completed for several years and scarcely half the acreage it is susceptible of irrigating is tmaer cultivation- fl Credit To The Mans Wife. IK crediting a roan for his achievements, look to the woman also. Perhaps his wife deserves a share in the praise. Maybe she gave him the idea. Perhaps she urged him on when, tired, he was about to quit. Maybe she renewed his courage when, discouraged, he was abont to fail. As a woman may rain a man. so, also, she may help . Very httle of the land now being I make him. She may furnish him inspiration and energy. farmed is is the hands of the small heme owner, the real She may add to his strength. She may quicken his fore-, cause of the prosperity of any community. What 1 Paso must do to get these lands settled is to give publicity to their existence; to place such a price upon them that the man of small means can buy them and then make a living and pay for them. We don't want and sever win get wealthy men to take hold of the valley lands. This means a system of tenantry that has sever bred pros perity. The man who has a small sum to invest, who is waling to work to make a Hving and a home for himself and his family, is the mas we want, the man we must have if valley farming is to be a success; if 1 Paso is to benefit from this great irrigation enterprise as we have hoped and dreamed that we were to benefit from it. To get these citizens, we must go to he sections of the United States where people are dissatisfied with present conditions, show them that they can better themselves here, and then help the; to get established here. This is going to take money; it is going to require publicity and hard work. We have the drainage work well under way and can care for all who wish to come. It is admitted that the home owner has made El Paso the substantial community that it is. El Paso was sever so prosperous, sever so bound together as it is today ana there was sever a time when there was such a large per centage of home owners, of taxpayers. A man who in vests in a home and then bends his efforts to paying for it is a man who takes as interest in the affairs of the community. He realises his importance as a stockholder is the great governing institution and takes a nana is its direction. He becomes a better mas; the community be comes better for having him. The same appKes to the valley. Until we fin the lands about El Paso with fathers who are making permanent homes for their sons and daughters, we win not have es tablished that prosperity which the rich lands about us should bring to us. A community of tenants is a failure anywhere; this is particularly true of such high priced land as we have here. We must get in people who will take an interest sot only in making a crop from year to year, but who wfll be interested in building up homes fcr the future. It is going to be a serious work, a long work, sight and ratify, or correct, his judgments. She may be his wife, his mother, or just his friend. Whoever she may be her influence, silent and unseen so far as the world is concerned, is at work. Let her be praised. Most often the wife directs a man's destinies after his maturity. Few young men, before marriage, view life through serious eyes. Responsibility is not upon them. Failing, none suffers but themselves and light heartedly they pass on to a fresh attempt and perhaps another loss. Harried men of right minds feel as obligation always to succeed. The welfare of home and loved ones is .inter woven with business or professional success. If employed, such a T"" cannot allow himself to fail He must go on and up. If in business on his own account, the same in centive to achieve is his. He feels the spur. It is then he is most receptive to the aid his wife can give. As a Tnn feels his earning power must be increased when the sew baby comes to his household and often he i does somehow increase it just so many a man goes signer s-n accomplishes more through his wife"s suggestion, A word of correction, a word of praise, a word cf suggestion may avail much. It should be a pleasant word. No man does wen when angered by sagging. Nor does he accom plish most when worried by fault finding. Respect, help fulness, encouragement and self restraint characterize an ideal matrimonial team, in which two heads are better than one. o Plant Trees This Spring. Ft is almost tree planting rime. Get ready to put out vnnrs. If everv one slanted trees. El Paso would soon have thousands more than it sow has and the city would be a great green grove, with houses among the trees, sur rounded by the plains and the rocky hills. That would be a great feature for El Pass. The city has a splendid loca ting tu dinate-is excellent Its buildings are of the best A glaring drawback is the lack of trees, especially in the newer parts of the aty. And because El Paso has crmwtT miSte. the newer parts of the city include a very a hard work, and we cannot delay a minute in starting, i srt3li aeal of it The rural credit system is going to help largely, but we j a jitter of course, even where trees have been as citizens must help. We win have to locate the farmers, planted within the past year or two, it win be several show them it is to their advantage to come, and then yt3IS before they are sufficiently grown to attract much bring them here. This is net the only good farming local- attention. But let every one plant and the result, in five ity In the world and we must reaSze it Every year, every monts, that we stt itue, we are naning our own mreiests. o When two or mere people get together for a Httle pleasant conversation, sooner or later they drift into a serious discussion of the high cost of living. It is hard to think or talk about anything else. o El Paso's free advertising fa the days of fighting in Mexico is still having effect No traveler feels his western tour complete unless he has stopped cere ana gone signt seeing. o There's mighty little satisfaction in reading how the other fellow's property has increased in value unless you have seme of your own. o Every chSd deserves a hams of Its own and a yard in which to play with so landlord to cerapliin. o The is ose of these after the war sandwiches weald make a fair gahstitste for wiae-ew panes. o Strange that a man's alleged humor goes weH every where but in Ms own henje.

Some argue that tie cost of watering trees is almost j prohibitive, and they hesitate to plant them for that rea-, son. Os the other hand, those who have planted trees after having had lawss asd flower beds to irrigate, have noticed little increase in the water bills.

It is perfectly nat ural that a child wbo saw his father sent Into exile into Siberia and bis mother shot down la the door of her home by the Cossacks should grow to manhood with a hatred of govern ment. Had these men been born la IB dj&na, or Illinois, or California, or Texas, they would have made good ertixeas.
