Increase in Values Is Nearly
$2,000,000, but Not So
Large as ExpeetecL
Falling short of the anticipated
$3,000,000 increase by $1,816,305, the to
tal assessed tax -valuation of the city
is $34,085,145, according to the report
of tax assessor and collector L.E. Bear.
The report shows an increase in Tarna
tion of $1,834,695 over that of last
year, the amount then jeing $32,250,45i.
On the rendered rolls of this year ,s
shown $26,554,110. -with the unrendercd
being given at $6,596,3n0. Last year on
the rendered roll the valuation was $20,
554.110, and the unrendercd, $5,69fi,340.
With the valuation running below
the $3,000,000 'mark, which was counted
on, it seems doubftul that there will be
a reduction in the present tax rate of
$1.90 on the $100 valuation. Based on
that increase, at one time, it was in
timated that the tax rate for the year
1913 would be $1.86, or even as low as
Mayor Says No Tax Raise.
"You can say that the tax rate will
not be raised, -was the statement of
mayor C. E. Kelly Friday morning. 1
am not able to sav at this time what
the rate will be. Ve will have to do a
lot of fine figuring." le admitted that
the shortage in the expected valuation
would have a great deal of influence
in the fixing of the tax rate.
The collector's report will be gone
over by the members of the citv council,
which will have the fixing of that rate
It was stated t'i .c it woull inU 1 rr
quire one week to do tins work, -and be
fore the rate would be announced.
Lowest Rate in 1907.
For the past four years El Paso lias
had a tax rate of $1.90. The lowest tax
rate was in 1907when the rate was $1.66.
The year 1908 was second with a rate
of $1.80, and the year 1906 was third
with a rate of $1.8o.
The following are the tax valuations
and tax rates for the years beginning
1911. Valuation $32,250,450, tax rate
Valuation $31,074,920, tax rate
Valuation $28,581,420, tax rate
Valuation $26,121,555, tax rate
Valuation $24,907,835, tax rate
Valuation $15,552,675, tax rata
The largest increase was shown in the
year 1907, when a gain of $9,355,160 was
made over the valuation of 1906. It was
also in that year that El Paso enjoyed
the lowest tax rate, the amount beinc

Any sore that Is obstinate or slow in healing should cause suspicion and
put the sufferer on guard. Many an nicer which could have been cured if
it had been properly treated, in time, has been allowed to remain open un
til it became infected -with some degenerate poison from the outside which
made it a malignant, eating sore. Most old sores come from an impure
and polluted condition of the blood and can be healed if the circulation is
cleansed and purified of the predisposing cause. To attempt to cure a
chronic nicer with, salves, washes, lotions, etc. is trifling with, what may
become a serious condition. S. S. S. heals chronic ulcers in a perfectly
natural way. It goes down into the blood and removes the impurities and
morbid matters which are the means of keeping the
place open; then the sore is bound to leal. Not only
does S. S. S. cleanse the circulation but it restores its
healing powers, and aids in promoting the necessary
qualities for good health. S. S. S. builds new flesh
tissue from the bottom of the ulcer to the outer skin
and makes a permanent cure. Book on Sores and Ulcers and medical ad
vice free to all who write and request same.
