A few weeks ago in a village a few
miles from Mexico City a citizen went
to the alcalde and complained that a
boy ten years old had stolen and car
ried away his donkey. He insisted
that the boy had carried the animal
on his shoulder. The police laughed
at the Idea, but when the lad was ar
rested it was shown that the state
ment was true. The boy had carried
a good-sized donkey a quarter of a
mile on his shoulder without a stop.
He did the trick again for the benefit
of the police.
Various tests were made of his
strength, and it was found that he had

It is regarded as important by the

Here women can go and mingle some
periods of rest with their shopping ex

they can look over the purchases they
