Monday, March 28, 1910. A Certainty of Cure is What Every Sick Mao Wants As 'each, patient presents special susceptibilities, idiosyncracies and peculiarity of make up, no stereotyped -treatment will cure them even though they elicit similar symptoms. The failure of many physicians to take into consideration this important fact is partly responsible for so many failures in medicine, so many so-called incurable diseases, so many millions being thrown away annually for patent nostrums. Good common sense reasoning is more essential to the successful eradication of disease than all the musty theories that have ever been or ever will be promulgated. Experience the result of many years' prac tice, careful observation and investigation has enabled us to separate the good from the bad, the true from the false in medicine. We have tested all well known methods of treating Ohronic Diseases and selected a com bined method the most successful in existence today.

Condition of Mains. Many of the mains laid previoiis to tann sirs in noor condition, particularly the -wrought iron pipe. The mains are j action of the soil or by electrolysis, and many of the mains are incrusted from the use of the -water from the well near the river, considerably reducing their carrying capacity.

The absence of gate valve on the connection to the main necessitates cutting ont a section of main. thus de priving other hydrants of supply, -when repairs are necessary City and Fire Department. Of the city itself and the lire aepart- ment the report says: Tnrmltinn estimated at 45.000. the 1900 United States census showing 15,906. The growth of the city has been rapid, due to its increasing importance as a ' mercantile and distributing cen ter. Principal industries are smelting, railroad shops, foundry and machine supplies and milling. Six railroad trunk-lines afford shipping facilities. The citv is located on the nortnern banlc Gf the Rio Grande, at the foot or "f " q1. The Streets. j Streets are mainly 70 feet wide, a few- being 90. Many of the blocks are intersected by alleys, ranging from 16 to 20 feet wide. About 16 miles of streets are paved; this has been done since 1905, and is princip ally Bitulithic; these and more of the other streets are in good condition. Overhead wires and Tailroad grade crossings in and near the principal mercantile district are liable to seri ously hamper fire department opera tions. Bituminous coal and petroleum are used as fuel for manufacturing pur poses; these and manufactured gas for domestic purposes. Records of the United States weather bureau station at El Paso show that average monthly wind velocities range from 7.0 to .15.3 miles per hour, the prevailing direction being from the northwest. Winds exceeding 40 miles per hour occur about 35 times per year, generally from the west and northeast. The city is not protected from the pre vailing winds.

The average number of fires per year was 147, varying from 103 in 1905 to 205 in 1909, with an average loss per fire ot $725, a high figure. The average num ber of fires per 1000 inhabitants, based on an estimated average population of 3S.000, was 3.SJ. and, the average yearly ioss high figures. General Summary.

"Water supply unreliable on account of inadequate supply; poorly maintain ed storage; weak distribution system and widely placed hydrants. Fire de partment efficient for its size, but un dermanned and poorly equipped. Fire alarm system Inadequate and unreliable owing to hazards at headquarters, poor instalation of apparatus, poor location of circuits, unsatisfactory type of boxes and poor distribution. Structural Conditions and Hazards. . Building department National board code, with- a few modifications, adopted in 1909; principal deficierices are the lack of requirement of window opening protection and chimney construction and the permitting of shingle roofs. Ade quate building department established and ordinance fairly well enforced on new work, but not on existing build ings. Fire limits cover major portion of built-up section of the city. Struct ural conditions weak in the business district; recently erected buildings mostly of good class. Residential dis tricts mainly of single roofed or adobe construction. Explosives and Inflammables-iGood gasoline ordinance, laws inadequate Post Toasties food is always ready to serve, and always gives that delightful feeling of having dined well. Served right from the package with cream and sometimes fruit either way it is delicious. otherwise. No special official responsi ble for enforcement. Conditions main ly good except for some dangerous drug storage and some rubbish. Electricity Good municipal supervis ion; National Electrical code adopted by ordinance as the standard; master electricians examined, licensed and bonded. New Inside work good; alter ations .sometimes made,, without notice to inspector. Old inside work in gen erally good condition; some hazardous. Telephone wires, except from distribu tion poles, underground in the mercan tile district; all other wires overhead; would form serious obstructions at many places. Considerable trouble from electrolysis in the past, and present conditions unknown. Conflagration Hazard Considerable in the principal mercantile district, ow ing to a number of excessive area buildings, bati, mutual, unprotected ex posures, and inadequately equipped fire department, an unreliable and de ficient water supply, unreliable fire alarm system, overhead wire obstruc tions and frequent high winds. Resi dential districts present the hazard due to flying brands on shingled roofs. No distinctive manufacturing districts; many plants remote from water supply. Of the fire alarm system of this city, the report says: Alarm and Telephone System. The present system is a part of the fire department and of a type well adapted to the needs of the city, but as now maintained is unreliable. Headquar ters is in a building of ordinary con struction, containing numerous hazards. The apparatus is overloaded and poorly Installed and no reliable registering ap pliances are provided. House wiring Is beloV the modern standard and the sole dependence on box circuits as alarm cir cuits is unsatisfactory. Boxes are of unreliable interfering type and mainly contain inferior operating mechanism. The telephone system is good and is a valuable auxiharj' to the fire alarm sys tem, but it cannot be considered a sub stitute, especially as boxes are lacking in those districts where telephones are least numerous. Circuits are in good condition, but are carried at many places on poles with high tension lines, and wires at box poles are -poorly installed. Tests and inspections are irregular and Infrequent, and no records are kept. Telephone Service. The Southwestern Telegraph and Tele phone company serves about 3500 sub scribers In the city, through one ex change located in a two story joisted brick building with slight exposures Internal protection consists of sand pails and dry powder and liquid chem ical extinguishers. Subcribers are on one and two party lines, principally the for mer. The Automatic Telephone company serves about 1350 subscribers in the city through one exchange located in a two story and basement joisted brick build ing. A newspaper printing office is In basement and ground floor, with much trash and poor electric light wiring. Ex posures slignt.

Roosevelt returned to Shepherd's hotel, where a largely attended Vene tian fete and dance was in progress. He. however, immediately went to his suite to obtain a much needed rest afU a strenuous day. During a conversation between an educated Egyptian and the corre spondent of the Associated Press the Egyptian declared Col. Roosevelt learned more about the Assiut American mission in two days that Lord Cromer had learned In 25 years. This is typical of the impression the Egyptians have form ed of Col.

"We are greatly interested in our town over the progress of The Herald' rnrniai-itv pnntpst." said a. man from out in New Mexico who was a caller at The Herald office Saturday and who, by the way, renewed his subscription so that his favorite candidate might gel thebenefit of it. "There seems to be a great deal of enthusiasm over the automobile and those trips to New York and I guess our girl is going to have tn vipn husv if shp expects to win. However, we are a pretty live bunch in our little burg and you will find us all ready to help her right up to the fin ish." The speaker himself, Interested in the contest because of an enthusiasm for whatever undertaking The Herald promotes, also stated that his neigh bors and friends took a similar delight in watching the candidates' work and that all were doing more or less to aid tne contestant of their choice. If a trip might be made through West Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Sonora and Chihuahua in the districts where the candidates are working in an en deavor to secure every subscription pos sible, an amazing amount of interest in the contest would be revealed. Every town i.as some interest in a candidate who may be from there or a nearby place. Every contestant has written friends residing not only in the contest districtvshe may be in, but all over the United States. "Use the Telephone. There is a telephone service in nearly every town from which contestants are entered and candidates need not go to the trouble "of personally calling on friends who may not happen to be in when they go around to see them. Use the telephone or write. Then if a per sonal call is necessary it can be made, but while a whole- afternoon can be wasted going to meet a prospective sub scribed, and not see him or her, the same time could be utilized in gather ing, maybe, two or three or even more subscribers if the telephone were used or a postal card first sent to ascertain whether the friend would favor you with his or her aid. First Special Prize Offer. Each contestant in The Herald's pop ular voting contest will be given a beautiful set of masterpieces of the world's literature, or a set of the works of Rudyard Kipling, for the first six new yearly subscriptions they send In. Just think of it you only have to get six people to take The Herald for one year and you get, absolutely free, your f choice of a 10 volume set or iiipiing or an eight volume set of masterpieces.
