Do women love money more than
men do? That must ba the fact, as
hundreds of El Paso women say that
it is true.
The prize offered by the "Times" for
essays on the subject has attracted many
hundreds of answers, and the majority
were from ladies of this city. Twelve
box tickets to the EI Paso Theatre for
Sunday evening.where ''Ready Money,"
a most pleasing drama, will be present
ed. "Beady Money" is one of the most
popular plays and the tickets awarded
are very desirable.
That the average woman Iove3 money
more than the men do is the opinion of
Mrs. K. P. Bransford, of 1417 Montana
street, who voices her opinion in a most
able manner. Her essay of about 200
words declares that money is the princi
pal factor in the life of the average
woman.' Her essay was accepted by
the "Times" Contest Editor as the most
complete and to'her goes the first prize
of sis box seats to the El Taso Theatre

money is loved by the women more
than it is by men. Miss Leach has
written an excellent essay on the subject.
The third prize of two box seats was
awarded to Leon Frederick Strelitz, of
this city. Mr. Strelitz is employed at
the Popular Dry Goods Company and

far more for money than men do.
