- T7I PASO has a total population of
iZt 6600 people, according to the
latest city directory and it can
boast of the only international (male)
street car system in the world. It
also has hotels with electric bells and
water on every floor and two regular

thing like this boastfully printed to

thing 3i years ago.

Paso could be carried In a man's

receptacles the women cany. It was

s-ze and contained a little leas than
ic- pases, including a directory of
Paso Dei Norte (now Juarez) and aev-
ral pages descriptive to the two
Ties and the usual member of ad-
-ti semen ts.
There were 2200 El Paso names In
the directory. Multiplying this In the
usual fashion, of three persons for
-ach name in the directory, the city
had a population of 66O0. but this Is
possibly over estimating It. for many
