dirt-starter which saves half the rubbing. It will double
the life of your clothes. Its real virtues may not be appar
ent the first time you use it You have perhaps been washing
youx clothes with a heavily-rosined soap, and it will take some
fame for Sunny Monday to undo what the rosin soap has done.
But after three or four washings you will notice a decided differ

Sunny Monday will not shrink your flannels.
Sunny Monday will not make your woolens harsh and

MELONS GOOD, BUT
FREIGHT TOO STIFF
'After Much Official Inquiry
Local Grocery Company
A carload of melons can cause more
trouble to a railroad company than to
the ultimate consumer. This has been
proved In the case "of the Jackson Groc
ery company of El Paso vs. the South
ern Pacific Railway company et al.
This case, involving the charge on a
carload of melons from Brawley, CaL,
to El Paso, -has set the entire ma
chinery of the interstate commerce
commission in action and has resulted
in this body ordering the S. P. to pay
to the plaintiff company $112.80 and
interest to date, In good, American
money, that amount being the claim
for overcharge made by the local groc
ery firm through Its representative,
Rufus B. Daniel, who handled the case
for the complainants.
Along about June 29th, of 1908, when
the Imperial "Valley cantaloupes were
their juiciest, a car of them was or
dered for El Paso. It arrived with a
freight bill attached which read 232.80.
Good as the melons were, that was a
little strong for the carriage on them
This was at the rate of 97 cent3 per
100, while melons from Indio, -Cal., west
of Brawley, were being carried by the
6. P. to El Paso for $10 per ton, this
rate having been announced on Au
gust 3 of the same year. The Braw
ley rate was held to be unjust by the
interstate commerce commission in that
it exceeded "the subsequently estab
lished -rate of $10 per ton and the
Jackson company was entitled to the
This amounts to a reduction from
$13.49, the 57 cents per hundred rate,
to $10, the Indio rate established In
August, 1908. The decision was ren
dered on. December 5th after all the
facts bad been presented. A certified
copy ot the decision was received by
Mr. Daniel Monday.

Dr. Krause is here to testify and

Mrs. Krause alleges that she shot
Griffith because he had failed to pay
back large sums he had borrowed
while visiting her husband and herself
in Memphis, and also because he had
failed to keep a pact made on that
same visit to marry her -when she had
obtained a divorce from her husband.
The woman was brought here from El
Paso for trial, having been fined there

J The work now being -done is for the
! purpose of throwing the main channel

the old Lee ranch, where the worst

j rines, there is an old channel in which
' the Rio Grande used to run many years
1 ago, and this was utilized as much as
i possible in the construction of the
government canal. If the river Is not
changed it will finally find its way
back into the old channel and wash
away the canal. "
