The growth of El Paso has been coincident with the growth of The
Herald; hence it is ail the more a pleasure for The Herald to give to the
world a paper that so strikingly sets forth the advancement of thai city. It
takes a paper like The Herald to do justice to a city like El Peso. We do
not say this in egotism, bat because we are familiar with the representative
papers of other cities; we know and we are certain that The Herald's dis
criminating readers know, that we are right.
