In 1S76, De Lesseps,. with the glory of having dug the Suez canal still untarnished, became in terested in the Panama situation. He and his friends had so far agitated the question favorably that in 1S79 a congress assembled in the rooms of the Geographical society at Paris, under the presidency of Admiral de la Ronciere le Noury, which voted in favor of digging the canal. Do Lesseps was chosen to head the project. He was 74 years old at the time. Politics, which De Les seps always avoided, was his greatest enemy in this matter. Capital for the construction of the canal was liberally provided, not by rich Frenchmen. but by the middle classes. The French press grew more and more s.'Uiguine and people rushed with their money into what they supposed was going to be- n very profitable enterprise. Little by little, reluctantly acknowl edging the task greater than he expected, De Lesseps kept calling for new support, and in some way or other kept getting it. He continued color the Panama horizon a. roseate hue, but it was sunset and not sunrise. At the end of 18SS night fell upon the hopes of the. dupes, while day broke upon their senses. Panama was fatally malarial; the cost of ex cavation was greater than was sup posed. Gross mismanagement marked everv- turn. Interest was paid out of the capital stock. Locomotives ordered from Belgium were of the wrong gauge and could lie seen rust ing by the railroad tracks. Worse was the unpnrallelled corruption re sorted to by the desperate directors to keep the facts from publicity, en deavors which eventually failed. The lopulace .of Paris was furious at the cumulative revelations. Over one hundred members of th French national legislature were smirched, five ex-ministers being among those arrested. Knemies of the French republic, seeking for a scandal that would imperil the gov ernment, forced the prosecution of the directors. Their attacks were so vigorously made that the government was obliged, in self-defense, to have Judicial proceedings taken against do Lesseps. tils'. Hon Charles, and two co-workers, Fontane and Cottu. Charles de Lesseps, in order to protect his aged father, tried to di vert the storm upon his own head. He managed to draw down upon himself all the bunden of the con demnation pronounced. One of the consequences of the prosecution, of which he was the object, was to oblige him to spend three years, from 1896 to 1899, in F.ngland. The French had spent in all about J2GO,000.00 and sacrificed about 2000 French lives before they drew their fires from their dredges, left their steam shovels in the jungles and turned the task over to the T'nited Elates. Out of the sum expended the contractors and others had reaped a rich reward at the expense of the poor people of France. De Lesseps was firecely attacked on all sides on account of the woe ful exhibit that came with the breaking of light into the project. Tens of thousands of people who had trusted in him were ruined. De Lesseps. his son. Fontane, Cottu and Eifel were indicted, in effect, for swindling and bribing legislators. De Select Line Just Received at Balke's Big Curio Store A select line of Navajo prayer rugs have just been received at Balke's Big Curio store and have been plac ed on sale at the. special price of $2 each. These rugs are made of the native Indian wool, long, nice and flossy. Such beautiful rugs have never before been offered at this price. They have been made with all the skill and care of the best Navajo blankets and those who know anything about Indian blankets are awaie that there is a wide difference between the best and the worst, even of the blankets that the Xavajos make. The difference is in the char acter of the wool. The early blankets, that is, those made hi the summer soon after the sheep arc shorn are the best be cause the choicest, longest wool is selected. Later in the season the poorer qualities of wool are made in to blankets. These prayer rugs are made of the choicest wool. They ate excellent for a variety of ornamental uses ami at the price at which they are now of fered by the Big Curio store every woman who has a pride in the deco ration of her home should provide herself with an abundance of them.

Gila Valley Auto Transfer Company Lesseps was too feeble to be dragged trom his retreat at La Chesnaye and every reference of the case was stud iously kept from him. When he became suspicious be cause the newspapers were not given to him to read, the family hit upon the plan of furnishing him eveiy day with papers just a year old. So he probably never knew he was accused of fraud, convicted in February, JS92, and sentenced to five years in prison and to pay a. fine of $ii00. His son Charles, who had a like sentence, was released from prison after serv ing a sentence of nix months of his term, but the count was not put in prison. France hesitated about thus diminishing the luster of one of her most glorious names and found an excuse in the infirmities of a man 8s years old. The last three years of de Lesseps- life presented him a pitiable mental and physical wreck, his faculties gradually failing until the end came. He was confined to his room for over a. year before he died, his death oc curring on December 7, 1SS94. The famous Panama canal conspiracy trial lasted from January 7, 1S92, to March 21 of the same year, ami many others of the conspirators were given sentences of frmn two to five years.

RIBBON CLERKS' FRIEND DEVELOPS AT TUCSON SAGE AND SULPHUR DARKENS GRAY HAIR It's Grandmother's Recipe to Restore Color, Gloss and Thickness Hair that loss its color and lustre, or when it fades, turns gray, dull and lifeless, is caused by a. lack of sulphur in the hair. Our grand mother made up a mixture of Sage Tea and Sulphur to keep her locks dark and beautiful, and thousands of women and men who value that ever color, that beautiful dark shade of hair which is so attractive, use only this old-time recipe. Nowadays we get this famous mix ture by asking at any drug' store for a 50-cent bottle of "Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy," which darkens the hair so naturally, so evenly, that nobody can possibly tell it has been applied. Besides, it takes off dandruff, stops scalp itch ing and falling hair. You just dam pen a sponge or soft brush with it and draw this through' your hair, taking one small strand at a time By morning the gray hair disap pears; but what delights the ladies with Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur is that, besides beautifully darkening the hair" after a few applications, it also brings back the gloss and lustre and gives it an appearance of abun dance.

When the trains arrive at Horn brook the crows leave their roosting places and circle above the depot. As the liiniteds pull out the birds fol low them for five or six miles. Scraps are thrown to them, and they devour every bit. policing the tracks, ami acting as scavengers.

Benefactor of ribbon clerks and their employers is the title that 'should be bestowed up on 15. Rosefeld, a dry good merchant cf this city, who has invented a de vice for fastening the end of a bolt of ribbon, it does away with tlio eternal pinning and unpinning which has been the bane of the libbon counter for generations. A simple pressure ot the finger re leases the ribbon. Upon removal of the pressure it locks automatically. As the device can be manufactured cheaply, a storekeeper can afford to have one for every bolt. It saves many pin pricks for the clerk and many minutes for the em plover.
