$200,000.00 wiiipcuijr $100,000.00
In considering this Investment Offer, the following
Points should be borne in mind :
FIRST: That immense fortunes have been made, and are being made, in
Life Insurance Stocks, the most profitable of all forms of legitimate business.
SECOND: That there is a growing local sentiment toward the upbuilding of
institutions of this Mnd, especially in regard to old line Life Insurance.
THIRD: There is a general inclination to favor a new Life Insurance Com
pany, that is -.conducted upon clean cut principles of ."justice and honesty by a ca
pable and resourceful management.
FOURTH: That Texas Life Insurance Companies are endorsed by the lead
ing bankers, professional men and merchants throughout the state, as is evi
denced by their taking stock in them.
FIFTH: That the El Paso Life Insurance Company's stock is absolutely
safe under the compulsory legal reserve deposit laws of Texas, and will grow
more rapidly in value than any other stocks available.
SIXTH: Life Insurance Companies have heretofore been financed practi
cally by a few people with the result that the enormous profits which have been
made, and are making, remain in a few hands. Hence, the public have generally
known very little of the enormous profits made by these few.
SEVENTH: The plan of the El Paso Life Insurance Company, in distribut
ing its Capital Stock, is one by which it not only offers a remarkable opportun
ity for investment, but at the same time puts into effect a successful method of
securing the cooperation of its stockholders in the upbuilding of the company's
interests, affording an opportunhy which will be quickly seen and appreciated.
EIGHTH: That this company will go into other states and do its part to
ward bringing back in annual premimns the millions of dollars which have here
tofore been sent away in premiums.
NINTH: That by securing stock in the El Paso Life Insurance Company
you have an opportunity of personally and effectively promoting the business of
a company in which you are interested, and thus adding to your profits and the
value of your holdings as well as the upbuilding of your section of the country.
Don't wait until the. stock is either advanced or withdrawn from the

doffed his hat the smile left his lips.
He saw that she had been weeping.
"You must not ceme here. Air. King."
she said hurriedly in low tones. "Take
your broadsword this morning, and
please, for my sake, do not come again.
I I may not explain why T am asking
you to do this."
"Just a minute, please," he interrupt-

She slipped Into the street and was

from the rear, followed by his cus

quite as dirty as any small boy's

"Don't you know any better than to

Truxton turned very red.
"I am sorry. I'll go at once."
"Oh, I'm not going to put you out!"
hastily exclaimed the prince, coming
down the slope. "But you are old
enough to know better. You are the
gentleman who picked up my crop
yesterday. You are an American."
"Yes, a lonely American," with an
attempt at the pathetic.
The youngster looked cautiously

"just fine." At the top of the knoll
the prince turned into a little shrub
lined path leading down to the banks
of the pool almost directly below the
rocky face of the grotto.
The prince scurried behind a big
rock and reappeared at once with a
willow branch from the end of which
dangled a piece of thread. A bent pin
occupied the chief end in view. He
unceremoniously shoved the branch
into the hands of his confederate and
then produced from one of his pockets

And They Are Saying Some
Real Harsh Things About
Thpse antireelectionists down in Mex
ico are coming out with some rather
bold statements. Here Is a translation
of one- Issued prior to the recent elec
tion, in which Dr. Francisco Vasquez
Gomer, candidate for vice president,
calls on his party to vote against Diaz
and takes a few Jack Johnsons at the
present president of that republic:
"I am convinced that all Mexican
people, conscious of their political
rights and the great responsibility in
volved in the verification of an act
that will so much influence the future
destiny of our country, will proceed at
this time with prudence, patriotism and
energy to demonstrate to the world
that she is capable of self-government
within the bounds of order and law.
"The labor of organization and pro
paganda, although begun with diffi
culty for reasons that are well known,
has been carried to a successful ter
mination, oWIng principally to the pa
triotic abnegation and enthusiasm of
our partisans. Persecutions have late
ly multiplied in an Incredible manner,
but they have not produced the effect
sought, as, where one has fallen, a hun
dred have filled his shoes, endowed
with the enthusiasm that ever inspiies
"The candidate for president of the
republic, C. Francisco I. Madero, con
tinues a prisoner, having been trans
ferred to San Luis Potosi, and
the circumstances of the charge against
him being changed fouv times indicates
the motive of his imprisonment; as
such it appears the apprehension of a
candidate for the first magistracy of a
democratic republic could not be justi
fied before the law, the nation or the
civilized world. To apprehend a can
didate on whatever pretext in order
to vanquish a party strong and power
ful through Its enthusiasm and disci
pline is a recourse that is not author
ized by the laws nor is it the usage of
"Unfortunately for the good name of
tha republic, political persecutions con
tinue in all parts of the country, but
this abnormal situation, which is to a
degree violent, and -nhich has grown
out of a lack of respect for the lav
and for the rights of citizenship, af
forded by our constitution, will not
diminish the enthusiasm of the mem
bers and sympathizers of the National
Independent party, to the contrary, it
will cause them to see with more clear
ness the supreme necessity of increased
efforts to restore the practices af de
mocracy, the fountain of the future
grandeur of our country.
"The necessity for our party increas
ing its efforts is imposed in a manner
not to be eluded. For if great is the
burden with which we are imposed,
greater should be the enthusiasm, ab
negation and self sacrifice of all to in
scribe in the ever open book of politi
cal history the first democratic lesson
of the 20th century. Although all the
resultq pursued may not be reached at
this time, it will "constitute the first
step towards emerging from an oppres
sion from which other American na
tions of our race have long since

posing pnrty, nou in power that in the
United States the first felicitation re
ceived by the winning candidate is that

of his opponent. This has also recent
ly happened in the small republic of
Costa Rica, and it has been set before
us as an example worthy of imitation.
"All this is true, but what our op
ponents always forget and never men
tion, is that in the United States, Costa
Rica and other Latin-American coun
tries opposing candidates are not im
prisoned nor is their press intimidated
and confiscated, neither are they exiled,
persecuted, nor are false accusations
made to justify their imprisonment. In
those countries the rights of the bellig
erent participants are respected and all
hold and enjoy the same privileges and
guarantees. Consequently there is
nothing extraordinary in the defeated
candidate offering his felicitations to
his successful opponent in a contest
that has been frankly and loyally con
ducted. "The National Independent party has
never recurred to denunciation and
abuse; it has respected the rights of
the opposing party in the political con
tost with which we are now engaged,
and, although it has not been treated In
the same manner, as is evidenced by
the imprisonments, deportations and
other violent measures of which it has
been victim, it will know how to respect
the law and to freely submit to. the
manifest will of the nation, as It would
also know how to felicitate the oppo
sition if they obtained the victory in
a free, loyal and legal manner."
