Progress, Prosperity and Profit.
Buy now or you'll either have to go further out or pay more later.
Can you find a man in El Paso who wouldn't jump at the opportunity to buy East El Paso lots at the price of one
year ago? Don't get the idea that profitable real estate investments in El Paso are a thing of the past. While
the future of El Paso may have been a rosy prospect a few years ago today it is a definite certainty. And the
man who buys Government Hill Lots NOW MUST make a handsome profit on his investment in a very short
time, because the demand for such property is constantly increasing and the supply is extremely limited. Govern
ment Hill will always be the highest class residence property in El Paso.
All improvements are being installed now; $50,000.00 is now being spent for sewers, bitulithic paving, water
mains, gas, electricity, etc. Government Hill has excellent car service and is only a few minutes' ride from the
heart of, the business district. ,

protect the lungs from intrusion, from
harmful materials. A cough should not
be regarded as a foe, but as a friend.
Pe-ra-na Removes the Cause of
Pe-ru-na is a cough medicine in the
strict sense of the word. It assists
Xature in getting rid of the accumulated
mucus in the bronchial tubes. It assists,
tirst, by strengthening the nerves that
control the act of coughing. And, sec

discharges are slightly thinned, making
them eatier to expectorate. In other
words, Pe-ru-na acts with Nature.
Any one taking Pe-ru-na will very
quickly find himself better able to

PECOS HAS NO TYPHOID NOW.
Pecos, Texas, Jan. 10, 1913.
Editor El Paso Herald:
Enclosed you will find statement
from the doctors of our city, which
you will please print in your paper, as
there are some great stories out over
the country relative to the typhoid sit
uation in Pecos. In justice to ourselves
and our city, we wish the truth to be
Let this appear and greatly oblige.
R. M. Haskln,
Secretry Commercial Club.
Pecos, Texas, Jan. 10.
To the Public:
Inasmuch as exaggerated reports are
rife concerning the typhoid situation,
we, the practicing physicians of the
town of Pecos, wish to say that there
have been 6S cases of typhoid; nine of
these cases occurred between June 25
and November 1, 1912. The remaining
59 cases have occurred between Novem
brr 1 and December 24, 1912. No cases
have occurred since December 24, 1912.
Reference to the report of W. Y.
Waite, bacteriologist of EI jPaso, pub
lished in full in a recent issue of the
Pecos Record-Times, will show ymi that
the epidemic was due to a typhoid car
rier, and not to the water supply or to
any other general source. This source
has been eliminated and we do not fear
a further spread of the disease.

COURTS DENY AID TO
Former President of Venezuela Cannot
Enter, States Under Bond UntU
Immigration Board Reports.
New York, N. Y., Jan. 11. The writ
of habeas corpus in the case of Cipri
ano Castro, former president of Vene
zuela, was dismissed by judge Holt in
the United States district court today
In discussing the writ judge Holt
ruled that Castro should not be al
lowed to enter tne country under bond
pending a decision of the board. He
will therefore remain on Ellis island.
The ruling sustains the contention of
the government as argued in court by
U. S. district attorney Wise that the
federal courts snould not interfere in
the case until the board of inquiry at
Ellis island shall have passed on Cas
tro's right to enter this country. The
hoard has not yet announced its find
ings. When its decision is made known
it is thought that Castro may again
seek the court's aid.
