EL PASO HERALD EDITORIAL and MAGAZINE PAGE THE DREAMERS ARE THE PEOPLE WHO BUILD SUCCESSFUL CITIES f Y men who dream ran betid a rftv. For n ratv. hlce.i tt: - 1 o; y men who dream can beM a city. For a aty, hke achievement of man. rant first be mirrored in the rr r,ds of its architects. Yet man does not baiki a c -v I k? he builds anything else, for trae cities grow by e r ,t on by tie eontrilmtion of every one of its inhabi i .- A mas can not create a city any more than he can crea e a new language. It mast acquire throughout the years its stones and mortar from many hands. The im print of every Hf that has been Jived within it is left upon its masonry. The modem city Is the most concrete form of govern ment known. A country is a political association of po litical units and the love of it, which we call patriotism. must be inculcated through various artificial devices. A state, even, we do not comprehend as something of which we are really and truly a part in a most vital sense. But a city, ah, we can come to love that with all of the inten sity of our souls. We seed so artificial stimulus to set our hearts athrob. Persons who have been a long time away from home know that withoet proof. We have all no ticed the eagerness and nervousness of the returning trav eler as his train pulls within sight of the spires and smokestacks of his home tows. For is that town he lives. His house, his castle, his home the most sacred thing in all the world to him is there. A man will take an interest in the other people who lire in the same city with him which he will never show is hiS state or his country, unfortunate as that may be. This is because the things his city does touches him where be is most sensitive. Every thing his city does affects his tome, his family, his personal life more than anything in state or nation does, war-making alone excepted. The country can go Democratic or Republican and he doesn't mind unless he has a bet up. The state can vote bonds or not and it matters little, except for a slight in--rease in taxes. But if the streets need repairing, if the ash man does sot call, if the telephone gets out of whack, and the sewers vet out of order, life is a black cloud before The Island Paving. GEORGE C WARREN is the man who controls the patent on a certain sort of paving. Naturally he is for a "resilient base" as against the rigid concrete bare. Leav ing this out of the question, however, he says himself and be is being quoted by those opposing concrete tor the val ley road, you know that "if a road or pavement sub base is in a poorly drained or weak subsoil, strength ot base, with its attendant evil of rigidity, is a controlisg factor lor consideration. On "The Island," the soil is easily soaked. It would be very difficult ever to get a foundation that would not permit the pavement to sink if the base were sot rigid enough to support it. With constant irrigation and over; flows from irrigation, "The Island" is particularly sus ceptible to this condition. It therefore needs a rigid base if any section of the county does. The article by Mr. Warren, on which he is being quoted by the proponents of the bituminous paving, was pre sented to the American Society for Municipal Improve ments. There is no record to show that the society en dorsed his sentiments. It was merely the view of a man who controls a patent on a bituminous paving, and it was read principally as as argument for salvaging for light or medium traffic the macadam roads built a few years ago under the mistaken idea that they were economical be cause they were cheap. His effort was to show that for light traffic these roads could be resurfaced, with additional crushed stone if necessary, but with bituminous topping in any event, and not lost entirely as would be the case if replaced by concrete. Mr. Warren, in his complete address, only abstracts of which have been printed, emphasized lie importance of a well compacted and a well drained base and recommends for new stone base, where possible, a sub base of larger stones, about four inches thick, laid flat. This is prac- 11s eves. He can't go to Washington and give the presi- tically a Telford base under the crushed stones and is not lent fits if the treaty isn't amended properly. In fact, he j provided for in the specifications calling for bituminous loess't know or care anything about the treaty 'usually, bids in El Paso county. .his allien we have been talking about. But if anything I The argument for a resilient base is not convincing, for goes wrong in the. city, he can go right down and "cuss" i such bases were the practice of a few years ago and have he mayor personally. That's something. been gradually abandoned is favor of the rigid types as we have come to nve our lives is trues we csty people the art ot road building has progressed. SCHOOL DA YS Copjrrtcnt.

A city oc long, well paved boulevards, with plenty of parks and ornamental cut-offs and weird turns and well built homes is an inviting dty. We knew as a rule there are hospitable, fr.endlv, homey people in such cities. That's the kind of i aty EI Paso is and we must keep it so. Lying languidly over the foothills that lead down to the Rio Grande, El Paso is a sleeping dvic beauty. We must be astir for we are growing while we sleep and some day we will be too burdened with our siie to arise. We can dream awake as well as asleep, and execute the de signs of our mxraidpal vision while we dream. And let While W. P. Blair and Mr. Warren are men of wide experience, whose views command respect, it must be re membered that they represent pavement interests which I ' cannot compete in price with the straight concrete pavement when a concrete base is used, and which are therefore los ing ground in the struggle for preference. They therefore have a direct interest in advocating the cheaper base. It is not argued by The Herald or the chamber of com merce committee that the road proposed is not good or not suitable for "the Island" road, but that for the same price a road can be seared which will be suitable for the heaviest traffic which may be developed and nrobablv wOl ! last several years longer, with a lower expense for main- o "m c&-mmmPzm?

KISEK HAVE YOU A LITTLE OUIJA BOARD! I'VE got a little Ouija board; I work it every day; It tells me many cheerful things that chase my doubts away. When all the world is white with snow, and cold w&da rage and roar, And it appears as if the sun can send us warmth no acre, I work my little Otnja board, and this is what I get: "The hint win soon be green again, And all will be serene again; There's pleasant weather oat ahead, and cause for hoping yet" I READ about so many things that cause distress or strife That often it appears that there is little joy in life; I hear of setfishBcss and greed and hardships and despair, And frequently I wonder if there's justice anywhere; Then I consult my Ouija board, and this is what I hear: "Buck up, old top, you're blscagais; Go walk a sale or two again, And if you watch along the way yonll find a lot of cheer." SOME men have more than they deserve, and many stfii have less, And evil often seems to thrive, instead of righteousness; Much that I've wished I might possess I know I sever can; Sometimes I get to thinking I'm the world's most luckless mas; And then I work ay Oarja board, and this is what I find: "Your Hver must be bad again; Get bury, and be glad again!" I keep my little Oaija board tacked safely in my mind. HogwallowLocals By DL.VK BOTTS. The World Is Advancing EL PASO has one of the best school systems in the cons-; try.

There it is re modeled somewhat, the numbers are filed off and new ones substituted. and sometimes the car Is repainted. Then it is taken to a different part of the country and sold.

THE transaction by which the New Tork Herald passed from the Bennett family into the hands of Frank Munsey. calls to nind the founder of the Herald, James Gordon Bennett, who is considered one of tbe greatest of American newspaper men. One hundred and one years ago James Gordon Bennett, then a young man br 24. sailed to Halifax from Scotland to make his fortune. This he evidently proponed to do by teach ing bookkeeping In Halifax surely a slow and uninteresting method of accumulating riches. He made a fail ure of his pedagogical project, which is an encouraging fact for young men who wbm to succeed, showing as it does that a failure ln one line can be a big success ln another. Then he came to Boston where he was so destitute, according to bis unsympa thetic biographer. James Parton. that for two davs he was without food, and might have remained so longer, if he hadn't had the good fortune to find a shilling on the Common. His first newsnaner work ln New Tork was not very highly rewarded financially either. To qaote Parton. "he produced admost every kind of j composition known to penoaiesu literature, his earnings ranging from 5 a week to 10 or Jit -a" little more than a single man needs, but not enough for him to marry on. How ever, he managed to scrape together about S5M In the course et time, and with this capital and an ImnMnse capacity for hard work ha founded the Herald. His first office was in a cellar In 'Wall street. It was fur nished with a desk, consisting o-. two flour barrels with a pianK n,... than wA & wooden clsair. Bennett was the whole staff, re- ! porter, editorial writer, business aaaa- ager. office boy. His working day i was 17 hours long. It began at five In the morning w-en he dashed off bis humorous verses and squibs be fore business hours, and it ended late at night when there wen no more theaters or balls to report. A few montns arter tne paper waa , started and Just when it was begin ning to nay its way the printing of- . flee was hnrat out. a happening i which so discouraged the two print ers who were working on snares max they withdrew. Bu' nothing seemed to discourage Bennett- As Parton says: "It was one poor man in a eel- . lar against the world." but he won out. And for 85 years the Herald, and later the Telegram, first under his direction, and later under his son. ware among the first newspapers ot the country. 1 A Line O Cheer J Each Day.O' The Year!
