Each succeeding season is showing smarter styles in men's hats.
Men are throwing off the shackles of somber conservatism that has so
long held them in subjection on their headwear. The new more ar-
tistic and more fanciful styles authorized now by fashion votaries are
bringing out many handsome effects in soft felts velours and mixtures
and even the stiff hats show novelty tendencies. ALL the best and
most fashionable departures are here.

ADVENT OF THE SLIT SKIRT
PROPHESIED 200 YEARS AGO
"There Is Naught to Be Ashamed of
in That Which God Hath Created"
Said Scotch Nobleman
Cornish Colo. Aug. 25. The arrival
of the diaphanous the hobble and the
slit skirt is the fulfilment of the
prophecy and the hopes of sir Charles
De Puyster GoMwin. of Scotland who
lived 200 years ago according -to an an-
cient manuscript found by Mfcs Faith
Corson Smith in an old trunk in the
attic of her home.
The manuscript dated November 10
1704 says in part:
'Perhaps posterity will learn that
there is naught to be ashamed in that
which God hath created no matter what
station in life may be mentioned.
"The creator never meant men and
women to be so burdened with velvet
ribbons lace and powder that his handi-
work should be coneealed or distorted."
Sir Goldwin lived on the Scottish side
of the border until he became involved
in political offences that made him a
fugitive to London where the fashions
of the time evoked his displeasure and

"THE C03EJIISSIOXEKS' OVTY."
Editor El Paso Herald:
As to the opinion of the attorney
published in the last column of the
editorial page of the Sunday morning
paper I can only say that the commis-
sioners' court will manifestly Tiolate
its duty if it adheres to its proposed as-
The words of the statutes require
that court to assess property for tax-
ation at its fair cash value not at 60
or 50 or 90 percent of that value but at j
100 percent thereof; therefore if the 1
court assesses property at 60 percent.
instead of 160 percent as the attorney
seems to suggest the court will plainly
violate the letter of the law.
The statutes and the constitution
state and federal both by their words
and in their spirit plainly require the
court to equalize value so that the
public burdens shall be equally dis-
tributed. Now if the average assess-
ment rate of the whole state is 30 per-
cent of the fair cash value and our
court should asseSs at the rate of 60
percent of such value the result will
be that the court will fall between two
stools and neither comply with the law
nor do justice.
In the last six years this straddling
the issue has cost the citizens of this
county at least 5375000. As to the
amounts received by this county from
the state it is not denied that the
state does make some return to our
citizens but nothing like the amount
which by the hands of our own com-
missioners' court it is unjustly at-
tempting to exact from them whereas
some of the very richest counties of
the state on a balance of the account
pay nothing to the state and at least
one of them. Ellis gets from the state
thousands of dollars.
Our court of civil appeals spends
most of its time in trying cases not
for our citizens but for those of Ellis
and other tax dodging counties.
We have not got the School of Mines
yet and won't get it until we donate
to the state the site it is trying to
fprce us to accept and as to the new
district court we have got one. and a.
good man to be the judge thereof but
that judge only costs the state 53000 a
year and it is making us pay at least
560000 a year for him. A few more
trades of that .sort and El Paso county
will defray the entire expense of the
To be consistent to have any defence
whatsoever for its action the commis-
sioners' court must do one of two
things. Assess property at 100 percent
on the dollar or at the average rate
adopted by other counties which is
about 30 percent.
As to the 591000 a year for the edu-
cation of our school children the at-
torney does not seem to remember that
a very great part of this comes from
the rent of public school lands and
from the bonds belonging to the pub-
lic school funds and not from tax-
ations. As a matter of fact on a bal-
ance of accounts the tax payers of EI
Paso county are being taxed to edu-
cate the children of other counties.

Commissioners Will Hold an
Open Discussion on Tax
The state's deficit.estimated to run
into hundreds of thousands of dollars
and blamed on false assessments of dif-
ferent counties is held responsible for
the present state tax rate of 45 cents
which has been received by the county
commissioners. The present rate it is
said is the highest in years. Last year
the rate was 26 2-3 cents on the ?100
valuation. Five percent of the present
rate however is for confederate pen-
sions fixed by a regent constitutional
amendment that the voters of the state
passed almost unanimously.
A meeting of the commissioners court
will be held in the county court room
at 2 oclock Tuesday afternoon. A dis-
cussion of the inequalities of assessments
by the different counties of the state
held before the last meeting of the com-
missioners will be the topic at the
meeting Tuesday. It is probable that
the county tax rate will be fixed'at this
timQ and taxpayers are expected to be
"Many counties of Texas contribute
less to the state in taxes than they re-
ceive in return from the state through
the state school fund and other sources
of revenue" said county judge A. S. J.
Eylar. "It is a pity that a deficit in
the state revenues caused by these false
assessment counties cannot be estimated
with some exactness. It would prob-
ably run into the hundreds of thousands
of dollars and may be largely respon-
sible for the present increased tax rate
the honest counties being compelled to
make up the deficit of the dishonest
"The cbmmissioners' court would bo
glad to have the facts from all ac
quainted with these false assessments 5
presented at its meeting tomorrow.'
It is also suggested that any member
of the legal profession interested in this
subject might examine a decision of
the supreme court of Texas found in
120th Southwestern Reporter and also
the decision of the United States su-
preme court cited in this opinion dis-
cussing the effect of the inequality of
taxation. Some who have read the3e
opinions believe that if the facts of the
inequality of assessments by the differ-
ent counties of the state were clearly
presented to the courts thr the state
of Texas would not be able- to collect
any taxes until it remedied these condi-
tions. PYTHIANS TO HAVE

Judge Eylar thought it was all in

A rumor emanating from apparently
well informed circles included that
president Poincaire would not receive
Francisco de la Barra. recently ap-
pointed Mexican minister to France
but Inquiries at the foreign office to-
day brought out.the authoritative af-
firmation that the French ministry
would not raise the slightest difficulty
in the way of the reception of senor
de la Barra 'by the French president at
an early date.
It was pointed out that the question
of the acceptability of senor de la
Barra in France had been settled be-
fore he left Mexico for Paris and It
was also declared that he was a per-
sonal friend of president Poincaire.
Senor de la Barra has arrived in

continue that Huerta Is considering re-

basis for these assertions. Those close
to the executive declare he will not

await "Washington's action. The public
opinion Is expressed here that there
will be a swift culmination of all
peaceable relations If congress i3 given
an opportunity fcr a free debate on

facts in the case.
Senor Gamboa minister of foreign
affairs denies the reports that Mexico
will make any proposal to the United

Washington might reply to Mexico's
note rejecting the American demands.
