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.

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
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. "Winter temperatures are

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.
Street widths fairly good; principal
streets paved and all in mainly good

but poorly maintained even under, mod
erate fire draft. Main arteries inade

poorly gridironed. Gate valves in good

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

mostly of good class. Residential dis
tricts mainly of single roofed or adobe

ble for enforcement. Conditions main

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
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.
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

mer. The Automatic Telephone company
serves about 1350 subscribers in the city

HELP TO THE
Enthusiastic Subscriber Says
Whole Town Will Help Its
Candidate to Win.
"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

"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.
Or we will send both sets to any con
testant for the first 10 new yearly sub
