the part with the mixed emotions of

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.

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.

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
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
"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

night she had a fearful cold, a throb

offered a white tablet that she
promised would give relief. -It did.

next night the little newcomer sought
out her source of relief to get an-
other tablet.

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

accompanies such a disorder. He leaves

We Are Now Receiving BIDS

After-War DeBresetea.
The state of nervous depression
that follows every war is upon us.
"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
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.
