P I MESA, June 21. Guadalupe Mendi vos was arrested yesterday, charged with passing bogus checks.

While he speaks conservatively, declaring that no man at present can tell about cotton prices for next fall, yet his opinion is that prices will be re ceived by the growers that will leave a handsome margin of profit to the bal Mrs. Grigsby accompanied her husband on the trip, and, like him, is glad to ba back in he Salt River valley.

HOWYUMAROADTO BE BUILT IS NOT SEnLED-, DELEGATION RETURNS The matter of the constructions the ; Tuina road to connect up with the j coast huulevard across California is ! still in statu quo, and the big delega tion that came up Thursday to boost the matter along have all gone home. Just where the funds are to come from is the big question. No one at temps to deny the desirability of the building of a real road to Yuma, but no one has yet suggested a way that it can be clone, or perhaps it is better to sav, will be done. Governor Campbell said yesterday that he was very much interested in seeing the Tuma road improved. "Ev erything will be done," he said, "to ward getting that road done that can be done consistently, when the rights and interests of other portions of the state are taken into consideration." State Engineer Maddox made a statement in relation to the matter. He said: "To give Yuma what she asks for would be unfair to the rest of the state. She contributes $20,009 to the state tax fund per year, yet she wants nearly a million spent there. She pro poses to put up, out of her bond issue, only 15 per cent of the money she wants spent on this road. On the through highway she desires to put up $150,000 and secure from the state and federal aid money some $70U,uuo. It can't be done. "How much of your federal aid money are you willing to put up to build the road to Yuma." was the question asked yesterday of Chairman E. Hackett of the county highway commission. "What I would be will ing to nut ira and what the county w'ould be willing to are two different matters," replied Mr. Hackett. "We of the commission are willing to go a long way, we want the road and we feel that the people of Maricopa want it. but there are numerous rea sons whv I can not answer that ques tion One reason is that I do not know what the people of the county want to do about it, and another is that we do not know yet how much federal aid we will get. One thing is certain, we cannot build that road out of county funds, -they are voted for a specuie purpose, and it was not to build a road to Yuma. Goes to California Miss Anna Stewart leaves today for '.he coast where she will spend the sum mer months. FEW SUICIDES IN A. El F. j No Trace of Burglars j I N. I. Nowell, of the Gilbert Cash ! I store, was in Mesa yesterday. No trace i of the thieves who burglarised the j store recently has been obtained. (St. Louis Post-Dispatch) WASHINGTON For the first time, the war department made available the other day the number of suicides and executions in the American army, at home and abroad. In the casualty lists these figures are concealed under the heading, "Deaths from accident and other causes." An official statement by the surgeon general covering the period from July 1, 1917, to May 1, 1919, shows that there have been a total of 181 authenticated cases of suicide, 154 among enlisted men and 27 among officers, in the American expeditionary forces. It is expected that publication of these figures, which are regarded as remarkably low in view of the motional stress occasioned by war, will quiet rumors that a large number of soldiers took their own lives. The army suicide rate is, in fact, lower than the civilian rate for the whole population and still lower than tho rate for males of the age group 20 to 29 the group most nearly com parable with that which formed the great bulk of the army. As estimated by the census bureau, the suicide rate for all ages and both sexes in the United States in 1916 was 11.2 in every 100,000 of population. Practically one death of every 100 was bv suicide. In the same year the suicide rate among males from 20 to 29 years of age was 15.7 per 100,000. On the basis of 181 suicides among 2,000,000 soldiers who went abroad, the .suicide rate for the expeditionary ff.rees of the army was 9.5 in every 100,000. Exaggerated stories have gone over the country about the number of men executed abroad. Wild tales have been told of men taken out at sunrise and shot for desertion or other military offenses. Records in the office of the judge advocate general disclose that during the entire iife of the A. E. F. there have been but six executions of sol diers abroad, and not a one of them was a military offense. One man was I ut to death for murder and five for -. rimes against women. Rumors of firing squads vanish be fore the official information that all rr most of these men were executed by hanging. Wallace Reid at Majestic Wallace Reid in ''Less than Kin" and a Sunshine comedy "Choose Your Exit" will be tne program for today at the Majestic. At the Orpheum "Ashes or' Love" will be shown. Sells 80 Acres of Land Leo Lesueur has disposed of SO acre3 of land on the Transmission road at $400 per acre. This figure, while it gives a nice profit to Mr. Lesueur, rep resents a fair price for good cotton land through this section. With a fav orable crop, the general estimate is that $500 land will be a common sight within the near future. Program of Maricopa Stake Class After a very successful year, the Maricopa Stake Seminary Class will close with the following program on the Tabernacle lawn at $:20 p. M.

COLLECTED FOR KISSES fillip A cup of fine rich tea, full of the real tea-flavor, costs less than a cup of common tea a pound makes so many more cups. Now this is either so or not so; and you can prove it at our expense. Get Schilling Tea at your grocer's. Serve it a half-dozen times. If. you don't find it's the fine economical tea we say it is, tell your grocer "I want my money back" and then use the rest of the tea. There are four flavors of Schilling Tea Japan, Ceylon - India, Oolong, English Breakfast. All one quality. In parchmyn -lined moisture-proof packages. At grocers everywhere. i Schilling & Co San Francisco Kisses at the rate of 400 for a cent are cheap enough, provided, of course, the quality is anywhere near a passable standard. But when it comes to pay ing for a billion of them at that rate and all in one installment well, that's something else again, as Mr. Perlmut ter would say.- Miss Frances Goldstein, a music teacher in New York, said in letters that she sent a billion kisses to Fred erick Harvey Speare, an actor and hus band of Mrs. Anna Speare. a physician. Doctor Speare sued Miss Goldstein for $25,000 on a charge of alienating tho ; affections of her husband and the jury, i which had to listen to a sheaf of the letters read in court, returned a ver dict for the full amount asked after only lu minutes' deliberation. In one of the letters read to the jury the music teacher mixed classical mu sic and spaghetti in a rather miscel laneous fashion. The letter, addressed to "My Heart's Darling," ran in part like this: "I, have just' played Mendelssohn's Symphony. If I could fly to you, I would, and I wish my letters would only fly to you. Darling, don't laugh. I am making paghetti. It is so delic ious. Sweetheart,, I wish you were here with me. You would love it be cause it is highly seasoned and we have lots of cheese. Oh, sweetheart, how beautiful that Italian symphony is. The first thing I do when 1 awajce is to run down into the parlor and play it in the morning. .It is so plain tive, so pathetic and so simple. How I feel when I think of that morning when I watched you go away on the train. I stood there in a dream after you were gone and then came tears, hot tears. I could not calm myself." Another letter told of a concert thg writer had attended, and concluded: "Darling, why can't I share all these things with you? I am in heaven when I am listening to all this music, but I want to hold your hand and feel that you are near me. Then it is that I realize you are so far away. Next week, the opera will begin and I will long so much for you. Oh. my love, I' am thankful we are to be together again never to part, sweetheart. With a billion kisses and air my love." "I just love you only and believe so in you! I just adore you and no one else," she w7rote in another letter. "I have told my mother that I love you and that no one can do anything to change me." Donald Willard of Cottonwood, Arizo- ; na, formerly of Phoenix, and Miss Ruth Yates, of Sedalia, Missouri, formerly ' of Arizona, were married in Sedalia ' Missouri on Tuesday. June 17. These young people were graduates with the 1916 cass of the Phoenix High school and of the 1918 class at the Tempe Normal school. Mr. Willard "has since been engaged in ranching at Cot- ' towood, and Miss Yates has been teach- ing school in Missouri. By a reference to the annual of the Phoenix High school for the year 1916 it may be observed that the class prophetess for that year, Miss Norma j Brazee, is now proven to have spoken j truly in her prophetic forecast, in this ; one instance, at least. The Willard Yates wedding was clearly forecast and j that, too, before those young people were more than passingly acquainted. The wedding took place at the home of the bride in Sedalia, Missouri, the father of the bride, Rev. J. F. Y'ates, performing the ceremony. WOMEN WANT MONEY TO ERECT VICTORY MEMORIAL FOR U. S.
