Bi Paso is 60 percent honest. At
least 60 percent of the people of El
Paso pay their debts. Take it from
the reference book of the Business
Men's Protective association, which has
just been placed in the hands of the
retail business men for their informa
tion in dealing with credit customers.
The book contains the financial biog
raphy of 15,000 people in El Paso and
the surrounding towns and suburbs.
This does not mean that every family

the association and can be referred to
whenever a third alarm Is received
over the telephone from the merchant
members of the association?
The information upon which the
ratings contained in the book are based
comes from the merchants who are
members. No ratings originate in the
central office, as it is used for the
compiling, filing and disseminatng of
the information. If a request for the
credit rating of a person is received
and there is no record In files of that
particular customer, the merchants are
asked for a rating on the prospect.
Upon this report depends the classifi

Every sufferer of Rheumatism needs S. S. S. because this great blood pu
lifier is a certain cure for the painful disease. .Rheumatism is caused by an
excess of uric acid and other corrosive, irritating impurities in the blood,
which are carried through the circulation to the different portions of the
system- This acrid matter coats the nerves, muscles and Joints with a fine,
caustic deposit and the sharp cutting pains or dull, constant aches are pro
duced. S. S. S. cures Rheumatism because it is a perfect blood purifier.
It goes into the blood, neutralizes the acids, and dissolves the irritating
particles and forces them out of the system through the natural excretory
channels. Then all inflammationand swelling subside, the pains and aches
cease, and not only is Rheumatism permanently cured but under the ton
ic effects of S. S. S. the entire health is benefitted and built up. S. S. S.
readies inherited cases as well astnose which have
been acquired, and good results always follow its
use. S. S. S. is an absolutely safe remedy because
it containsno strong minerals to damage the system.
It is made entirely of roots, herbs and barks. Book.

A Business Proposition to the Suffering
If You are a Sufferer or Have a Friend Who Si
Lay Aside Prejudice and Make a Personal Investigate
PrnrKr and tne lack of self confidence to make investigation prevents goexf
doctors from being up to date, from giving results to their patients. It keeps
many merchants, tradesmen and other people from being able to compete with
those who study and investigate modem methods which makes success today.
It makes physical wrecks of countless thousands over this broad land of bright
young men whose lives have been wrecked through ignorant excesses de
bauches'; young women who have not been taught the necessity of self care and
who are too modest to even visit a Drs office. It has caused all kinds of untold
suffering to men and women, early wrecked lives, caused suicides and filled pre
mature graves. As a business proposition you cannot afford to put off so impor
