man; Mesdames T. R. Kuykendall, C. "W.

Sanderson was made an honorary mem
ber of the association.
The people of this town are deeply
gratified at the success of the affair.
It comes as the first accomplishment of
the Sanderson Commercial club, and it
will act as a stimulant for greater ac
complishments. It was organized last
January -with a membership of just a
dozen business men of the town. Less
than two months after its organi
zation, the first meeting of the South
west Texas Press and Commercial asso
ciation was held at Eagle Pass and Jes

A suspect was arrested at Naco, but
he proved an alibi and -was released.
"While the police are exercising ex
treme vigilance along the Mexican bor

curred in the heart of Bisbee, behind
the Allen block. A man, who has re- j

The Mexican who held up James

At the opening of the public schools
on September 5 over 800 children ap
plied for admission, with mere than 100
of these in the high school department.
The town has recently finished a 12
room school building, equipped with the
best system of steam heating and ven
tilation, representing in all an expendi
ture of more than $20,000.
Tne high school proper has a faculty
of six well trained college and univers
ity teachers in charge, while the graded
school has 15 teachers under professor
Harry T. Poore as principal.
Artesla comes the nearest to having
what the pupils need In the way of
playground apparatus of any town in
the country. At the graded school
building there are 84 swings, in motion
at once, more than 100 teeter-totter
poles for the little ones with trapeze
and ball grounds for the boys. At the
iiigh school the pupils have a well ar
ranged ground Including baseball, foot
ball, basketball grounds, jumping
standtrds, vaulting standards, discus
throwing, three tennis courts, et
"When superintendent "W. L. Bishop
took charge of the schools three years
ago ther were seven teachers and 300
pupils enrolled. The growth of the
community can be well estimated by
the scholastic enrollment for the last
four years, which is as follows: 1907,
334; 1908, 526; 1909, 753, 1910, 1010. Each
of these years the enrollment in school
nas been greater than the scholastic,
census with the same this term, the
town will have a problem to meet the
needs of the pupils.

biggest collection of other attractions
ever seen in the southwest.
The Os-Aple illuminated parade is to
be a big feature, and Instead of being
held down town, as has been the past
custom, it will be held in the fair
grounds. The horse show will be an
other feature, and, with baseball and.
trotting races, there will be sport
enough to gratify the taste of all ocm
ers. The Opening Day.
On the opening day Buffalo Bill will
head the parade to the fair grounds

PUHlFYfflC THE BLOOD
THE ONIYPERMHEHT CDEE
2so case of Rheumatism was ever
cured except by a thorough, purifica
tion of the blood : just as long: as the
blood remains charged with ferment
ing uric acid poison, the painful dis
ease will continue. The pains and
aches of Rheumatism are simply su
perficial effects of the impurities in
i the circulation, and sometimes may
certain to pay for the mistake -with,
constant suffering later on. S. S. S.
cures Rheumatism in the only way it
is possible to cure the disease. It
goes down into the blood, and re
moves the uric acid from the circula
tion, so that the nerves, bones, mus
cles and joints are lubricated and fed
instead of being
ritated and in
flamed with the
i m p u r i ty .
When S. S. S.
and purified the
blood, the pains and aches cease, all
inflammation disappears, stiffened
muscles are made pliant, and every
troublesome symptom of Rheumatism
is permanently corrected. Book on
Rheumatism and any medical advice
