the negro's supremacy In the prise ring
is near, bnt that it will not come because
a superior white hope will bob up on the
horizon, but because Johnson is rapidly
deteriorating as a fighting machine It is
only a Question of time, thev sav until

Our Eighth Year Here
In which time we have treated successfully nearly SEVEN THOUSAND
chronic sufferers, -without the loss of one by death and with few failures
to cure (none the result of our neglect). We are justly proud of this
RECORD which is responsible for our present immense practice and guar
antees our continued success. Our patients include the best families and
leading businessmen of Texas, Arizona and New Mexico, many of whom
owe their present good health and success to the fact that they availed
themselves of our professional services.
There is nothing to be gained through neglect, neither is it a good policy
to try patent medicines or inexperienced doctors. When your health is
involved, you should receive the best medical attention possible, said as
our services cost you no more than you pay for experiments, a visit to our
offices will prove an excellent investment of time. We charge nothing to
prove the merit of our methods.
Since opening our offices In El Paso seven years ago. Nov. 15, It is a
matter of record that some twelve "self-styled" MASTER MIRACLE
WORKERS" have opened offices in this city, their equipment usually
consisting of rented second-hand furniture and some obsolete apparatus
for SHOW purposes. It is a deplorable fact that these, concerns, after
staying for varying periods and collecting all the money possible, usually
vanished leaving many sufferers penniless and without benefit. With
these facts in mind.- any person in need of skilled medical attention,
should investigate thoroughly the ability and reliability of his physi
cian. Our Diplomas, Registrations and Certificates prove us to be the
best qualified SPECIALISTS in El Paso, and this we are prepared to
demonstrate to your entire satisfaction.
