Capt. Clinton screwed up his eye3
as if thinking hard. Then, turning to
his sergeant, he said:
"Yes. I think I did. Didn't I, Ma
loney?" "Your word is sufficient," said the
judge quickly. "Did you hold it up?"
"Think I did."

"What difference does that make?"
demanded the policeman.
"Quite a little." replied the judge
quietly. "The barrel of the revolver
was bright shining steel. From the
moment that Howard Jeffries' eyes j
rested on the shining steel barrel of j
that revolver he was no longer a con- i

Itching, Scaling Scalp Humor was

Niece Advised Using Cuticura,
CURED HER SCALP AND
MADE HAIR GROW AGAIN
"My mother used to have.a very bad
humor on her head -which the doctors
called an eczema, and for'it I had two
different doctors. Her head was very
sore and her hair nearly all fell out
in spito of what they both did. One
day her niece came m to see her and
they were speaking of how her hair was
falling out and the doctors did it no
good. She says, 'Aunt, why don't you
try Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Oint
ment?' Mother did and they helped
her, so she soon began bathing with the
Cuticura Soap and anointing with the
Cuticura Ointment, and in six months'
time the itching, burning and scaling
of her head was over and her hair began
growing. To-day she feels very much
m debt to Cuticura Soap and Omtment
for the fine head of hair she has for
an old lady seventy-four years old.
"In regard to my own case, mine was
an eczema something like hers. It was in
my feet. As soon as the cold weather
came my feet would itch and burn and
then they would crack open and bleed.
Then I thought I would flee to my
mother's friends, Cuticura Soap and Cuti
cura Ointment. I did for four or five
winters and now my feet are as smooth
as any one's. Ellsworth Dunham, Hiram,

What Barnum Said of Cuticura.
P. T. Barnum, the famous circus man,
once wrote: "I have had the Cuticura
Remedies among the contents of my
medicine chest with my shows for the
last three seasons, and I can cheerfully
certify that they were very effective in
every case which called for their use."

Capt. Clinton, laughed loudly.

the policeman squarely in the face,
he said slowly and deliberately:
"Capt. Clinton, whether you ac
knowledge it or not, I can prove that
i you obtained these confessions by
means of hypnotic suggestion, and
j that is a greater crime against society
than any the state punishes or pays
you to prevent."
The captain laughed and shrugged
his shoulders. Indifferently he said:
"I guess the boys up at Albany can
deal with that question."
"The boys up at Albany," retorted
the lawyer, "know as little about the
laws of phychology as you do. This
will be dealt with at Washington!"
The captain yawned.
"I didn't come here to hear about
that you were going to produce the

night of the murder that was what I
came here for not to hear my meth

"One thing at a time," replied the
judge. "First, I wanted to show you
that we know Howard Jeffries' con

"She has promised" to produce the

"She has, eh?" exclaimed the cap-,
Rising quickly from his chair, he
crossed the room and talked in an
undertone with his sergeant. This
new turn in the case seemed to inter

had followed every phase of the ques

badly cut up by heavily loaded
wagons passing over it while it is so
soft that the wheels cut into the street
paving and leave a permanent mark.
The heaiy truck of the C. H. Lawrence
company passed along Texas street
Tuesdaj' afternoon with a load of grain
on the wagon which weighed several
tons, according to bystanders. Once the
wagon nas stalled in front of the Tol

which Is to store the life giving waters
of the old Rio Grande for the conven
ience of the ranchers below who have
fought the desert and conquered. Be-
fore the work on the dam proper can
be built, this railroad must be com-
pleted, the bridges built, concrete mix
ers, and tons of machinery set up at the
site of the big dam which is to make
the Egyptian efforts at dam bulldmg
seem puny by comparison. Then when
everything has been done which must
be done before a great project can start,
500 men will man the machines and
scatter over the works. The old river
of the north will be bypassed around
the site of the dam and the first load

into the excavation In the river bed
and out of the silt and sand of the
river the magnificent concrete struc
ture will rise to a greater height than
El Paso's tallest skyscraper now in
course of construction.
Early Benefits to "Water Users.
Although It will take at least five
years to complete the big dam, the
valleys of the Rio Grande and the city
of the twin valleys will not have to
wait that length of time before they
derive the benefits which will accrue
from the construction of the dam.

This water will be the best insurance
the farmer can obtain for his crops
as Its presence there will mean that
there will be a water supply when wa
ter Is needed and crops can then be
planted without the water equation en
tering into the plans for the dry sea
sons. Water will be Insured perpetu

dam has reached the storage stage, and
for all practical purposes it will serve
its purpose just as well half done as
It will when completed.
El Pnso Will Furnish Supplies.
More fortunate than either of the val
leys which will be so greatly benefited
by the big dam. El Paso will not have
to wait even a day after the order is
given to go ahead with the work before
reaping direct benefits from the dam.
Men will be needed at the dam and
these men must be equipped for rough
ing it In the camps. This equipment
will be bought in El Paso. Supplies
and food for the workmen will have to
be provided and El Paso's merchants
will supply these necessities.
To accommodate the workmen who
are engaged in the preliminary work of
the dam, trains will be run between El

buy the best and pay cash.
Later, when the 50C inen begin to

concrete making materials will be
great. Having the biggest cement plant
in the southwest. El Paso will be the
logical point as a source of supply. In

Engineers Expect Xo Delay.
According to Arthur P. Davis, chief
engineer of the reclamation service,
who was here Monday in consultation
with supervising engineer X. C. Hill,
of the southern district and district
engineer W. 31. Reed, there should
be no delay in the work from the time
the preliminary work starts until the
big project is completed. It has not
been decided yet, Mr. Davis says,
whether the work will be done by the
government service or will be let out
But in either case the work will pro
ceed uninterrupted, and, as the big
dam rises out of the sand of the river
It is to be harnessed and will begin
to serve the people of the lower Rio
Grande valleys before the expiration of
the next three years.
