I knew the man as it is not given

Contagious Blood Poison is tn"e most powerful and. destructive of all
"blood disorders. It corrupts and vitiates the entire circulation and mani
fests itself in the most hateful and loathsome symptoms, such as ulcerated
mouth and throat, copper-colored spots, and even sores and ulcers on differ
ent parts of the body. The poison causes the hair and eyebrows to fall out,
and sometimes the finger nails come off and the entire glandular system is
attacked. 2To medicine can cure Contagious Blood Poison which does not
rid the circulation of every particle of the insidious virus. The least taint
left in the blood wili break out afresh, when treatment is left off. -S. S. S.
is the real and certain cure; it goes into the blood and by removing every
particle of the poison, and adding rich, healthy qualities to the circulation,
forever cures this powerful disease. All who suffer with Contagious
Blood Poison may cure themselves in the privacy of their own homes by

the war between the states, Is still con

there is no use in opening up old sores.
We were eneraged to be married, my
father had given me a little house, we
had selected the furniture, the day wa

As I studied the man a change came
over his face, and I saw him as I had

"What is it, Polly?" I thoughtlessly
asked. "To what do you refer?" said
he, looking me in the eyes with the
face of the ranger.
"What were you thinking about?"
said I. "Why do you ask, Shag?" said
"Because, Polly, I don't like the look
that came over your face just now." I
replied. "I don't like it, Polls', and I
am here to tell you so."
"I hardly understand you, Shag," said
he, "perhaps you will be" kind enough to

on these Colts revolvers we did so to face

"How far did we ride last night.
Shag?" said he, looking me in the face
in a way to command my attention.
"Why, let me see," I replied, noting in
my mind the points of Interest passed.
"Seventeen, 2S, CG. 41, 52 miles, .Polly,
as near as I can figure it out, why?"
"Fifty-two miles," he replied. "Well,
that is just about correct. Silently -we
rodeNthose 52 miles, for it was policy to
make as little noise as possible. How
many eyes do you suppose looked long

many devils, with guns in their hands

their cowardly fists at us as we passed
them by? Look there now," continued
he, pointing to a giant prickly pear
standing some seven or eight feet away.
"Look at that fellow lying coiled up un

the direction of his finder I saw a trreat

Advantages of- El Paso Life
Hello, Mr. Xewspaper Man! What's
the news? Fine and dandy?
Election is over: it didn't both?r us
much, however, and we are getting along
fine. But. will you allow me to say a
word or so to confirm my former state
mentnamely, that very "few people here
reaKze the many important advantages
of the EI Paso Life? I will give you
just one which arose last Fridaj'. I
alread3- have a large number of agents
out in other towns at work, but to give
you one of a number of similar cases
which have arisen: Two of my agents
were in a certain town in Arizona, and
meD a stock man. In course of their talk
he said that he had a good ranch well
stocked and about fifty thousand in cash
which I wished to invest in real estate
in El Paso or Los Angeles, where he
expected to biry a heme, move to and
keep his famil-. Right there my agents
got busv for El Paso. Don't you see
that the El Paso Life will have hun
dreds of paid advocates for El Paso and
will cause man and many thousands
of dollars to come to Ei Paso throu era in
surance premiums and at the same time
bring many more thousands here bv just
such occasions as the aibove? I tell you
the El Paso Life will do wonders for El
Paso and vieinitj. Justthink about this
a little, then think of tne improvements
and tihe mney now in Ft. Worth, in
Dallas, in Houston, in Galveston, in San
Antonio and Waco since (mini you)
since the organization of Life Insurance
in trjiese cities. You see. tne life in
surance written and pren-ums collected
does much, very much, for the town, but
not all. Then. if the Life Insurance Co.
is named for the town, as is the El
Pa3o Life, it is all the better, because
the agent must put up the best side of
tne town and vicinity, for it is business
everything to him." I tell you this be
cause I think that a few people are over
looking something weare seeing most
of them, however and getting a nice
business right along. Good day. Come
up to see me in Gxiaranty Trust Build
ing whenever vou can.
