It was sot pretended that this was : n vthing- more than a recital; it listed only half an hour, and was Mr too short. There was no orches-t-a. no chorus; Miss Alzina Orndorff ..nd Mrs. Warren Small played the piano accompaniments and interludes ih much spirit and delicacy.

Mrs. Roland Gilchrist made a toe Witch, and her ride on the broomstick: was as cllcklty-clickity and as terrifying as a witch could be. while her invitation to the chil dren was In no small degree dramatic. The presentation was in charge of Mrs, S. J. Freu dent hat and showed in every detail careful preparation and more than conscientious Hudy. The hope was expressed thai El Pasoans might undertake the com plete opera with orchestra and chorus and make this a, feature of the Christ mas season annually hereafter as is done in many places on botn conti nents. The opera is full of the love liest music, appeals to both young and old. never loses its freshness, and ends happily. To be content but never satisfied is said to be the secret of a fruitful life, and that was the mood of the large audience at the "pop" concert given by the Woman's dub at Lib erty hail Wednesday night. Marie Bappold was the vocalist, with Mme. Lena Coen as her accompanist. There were 20 numbers on the program, but the audience asked and received more than a half dozen encores and was reluctant tb go then. It was a program for everybody, with operatic music from French and Italian favorites and arias, ballads, folk oags, and Sentimental bits of passion and poetry Mas; for the most part ia English but with other tongues interspersed, Mme. Rappold won the favor of the audience from the start. She is free from mannerisms but by no means without individuality, and there is a warmth and sympathy about her work, that mot full response In the hearers and set up those psychic cur rents which always insure success on the one side of the footlights and pleasure on the other. It may be that her operatio selec tions wore better suited to bar voice and method, but certainly these re ceived no more applause than many of her sinlest little bits of sons:. ; The program varied, as it should, but i there was nothing there without Its artistry. Everyone commented on the clarity of her enunciation, and no matter in what language she sang, every word and syllable was distinct ly voiced a trait too rare in operatic or concert singers not to demand an appreciative word. Mme. Coen was duly subdued as an accompanist hut when phe got a chance by herself she gave unex pected delight and had to respond with an encore, a delightful Gavotte of Gluck. the classicist, modern ized by Brahms an excellent example by the way of the fact that the very best music is "popular" If selected and played with intelligence. Many In the audience voted this the best of the pop" series so far. One cannot too often emphasize the im portance of the contribution the Woman's club has made to the caue of worth while entertainment in E! Paso by having made U possible to hear such a concert as this for 25 cents a seat. Every vacant seat last night represented a wasted opportu nity to enjoy an evening wholesomely and profitably. El Paso has a "boy choir of 50, of whom IS are girl as somebody ex pressed it, and next month at Saint Patrick's Roman Catholic cathedral the choir is going to give its initial concert, with accompaniment of pipe organ and an orchestra of 25. Trinidad Concha is the director of the choir with Miss Manuela Mateus as assistant director. Mrs. Marguerite Lavacek organist. Miss Elvira Torres Pianist, and Kayo Reyes director of the orchestra. Rev. Fr. Beaudion who has recently come here from Canada has taken great Interest In the choir work, and he established a school, be sides fitting up tennis and basketball grounds near the cathedral for the choir boys and -altar boys. It Is intended after the choir be comes well established to have more music in the churches and choral masses will not be limited to holi days. The concert next month will pre sent the choir in music of Rossini, General!, and Mercadante. There will be instrumental solos, orchestral num bers, and a remarkable tableau, "My Rosary-" The concert will take place on a Sunday afternoon aad The Herald desires to pay tribute to the wise and progressive spirit which actuates the cathedral clergy in permitting so ex cellent an entertainment to he given at that time and place. Certainly few things conduce more surely to promote the religious spirit than good music reverently sung and played. a. v. s.

EW YORK, rec. 9 Vast and rorolddinff was tne great Chl- nnA Wall. Yet a far more dreadful wall en closed China for centnriea. It was unseen, bnt strong, real and rtithlees; it had the consistency of vapor, yet the solidity of steel. Ic was the Insidious, stilling- barrier that arose from all the opium pipes of the sleepy orient, the wall that drug built about the great empire of the east. Prom this slavery China Is now al most emancipated, thanks to those who are prosecuting; the traffic in in sidious drugs. Tfiat a iirm lonnoation lor sucn a bit of maaonrv has been built here in our own New York is a fact not to be denied, bat. nevertheless. Is one dis missed from the average mind as a du of groteaqtierie not to be worried about too much. The use of drugs has Increased among the poor. The rich, as usual, can take care of themselves when they wish the relaxation or exhilara tion that drink affords to its devotees. Bnt no Chinese wall will be allowed to arise from the fuming foundations of secret vice In New York. Vigorous efforts have been made to check the use of drugs, and the latest step In tne iignt on narcotics is tne appoint ment of the celebrated alienist. Dr. Carletoo Simon, as deputy police com missioner, now in chars; of the war against that menace. Dr. Simon is the selection of the state, city and federal officials who have studied ihe danger to the public of the constantly increasing number or arur addicts ana aeaiers in the city. Alfeaaet Tells Haavger. Traffic In drugs," said Dr. Simon to me, "has assumed proportions that have awakened not only the city, bnt also the state and federal govern ment to its danger. "This is the same danger that at one time threatened the extinction of China. "It must not grow into a mental wall to surround our own popula tion." The purpose of the present reor ganized narcotic division Is due to the fact that the police department- has found it difficult to cope with the drug addicts, whose number has in creased far beyond that which they were prepared to handle. Commissioner Richard Earigbt," said Dr. Simon, "has gives me instruc tions to 'go the limit" with his entire police force behind me. We Intend not only to check the spread of this evil, bat also to prosecute those who traffic in drugs unknown to the pub lic "Mr. Ehright has given his atten tion to this menace to. an extent which no one realizes, and he 1& de termined to rid New York of this devastating vice. The poor man. If he is weak aad craves stimulation, will find solace In a drug. The man of means can get stimulated expensively and his In toxication will not last long. "But for a little money his less fortunate brethren can buy enousrh drugs to get a 'jag that will last a ' New York couldn't find other employ- , ment than singin? in a cabaret. One night she had a fearful cold, a throb bing headache, and told another 1 singer of her Illness. The other girl offered a white tablet that she promised would give relief. -It did. i Now you may be sure that the very next night the little newcomer sought out her source of relief to get an- other tablet. i "In the dlsaonointments and dis couragements of such a struggle as. was hers it Is not hard to see how she came often te seek the solace of the deadly drug. She formed a habit not to be denied. Yet It was formed be fore she knew It. "A more common case Is that of the person who ts stricken with a sodden ailment like otomaine. A doctor is called. He administers a tablet to allay the terrible pain that accompanies such a disorder. He leaves three more tablets with Instructions for their use If the pain returns or If the first dose does not suffice. Then lheleaves also a prescription for IS taoiecs. -Doubtless the Invalid is well the next day. and tne settle of tablets is put away zn ine nunuy cnest. drugs week. FOR SALE!

"It Is a state that seeks artificial stimulation. Those who have devel oped this requirement will satisfy it, no matter how. "Any agency that affects a man's ability to distinguish between right and wrong is an immoral one, capable of causing great havoc Drugs (habit forming ones) have this power to such an extent that anyone under their influence is dangerous, and also must be classified as mentally de ranged and not responsible while un der such influence. "Under a state law. drug addicts must register as such. There are those who will not or have not done so. We must class them, when they are found to possess habit forming drugs, as 'de&lera.' and to classify tbffm as trafficking In drugs which are a menace to public morals. "We will help the unfortunate ad dicts, prosecute the dealers and assfst those 'incurables' who must have drugs. -Now, don't misunderstand what I mean by 'incurables.' I be lieve that no man must' have drugs unless he is suffering from an intol erably painful disease or Illness. The helpless, agonized patient must be soothed by narcotics. No one else needs them, and there is no one who can truthfully say he is so fsr gone in their use he cannot stop or respond to treatment. . "This plague must be wiped off the map of New York city." Drags Seised la Raid. I saw recently thousands of dollars worth of drugs. They represent the result of the first raid superintended By Or. Simon. Vp in a loft building on West 2Tth street is a great store of drugs that bring forgetfulness to their ad dicts. Tightly locked In a steel safe is a large tin cracker box such as is seen In groceries. It contains lumps of a whitish stuff, the size of large moth balls morphine. Nearby are old cracked earthenware cups containing a brown substance that looks like hardened molasses opium. Beside the cups of drug is a Chinese opium pipe of ivory and a metal that looks like brass, curiously wrought with its bowl cunningly hollowed out to hold a bit of the burning gum that bids sleep and dreams come. Many are the ways of becoming a drug addict. Some of these paths were told to me by an official who will not be named here. Hew Habit Is Permed, 7 know of a sad case of a pretty j little girl from a small town. She had a good voice, but on coming to ble headache is tenanted to try this type of relief.
