On the outskirts of Dayton Is a wooded spot bathed In human blood that la more to be dreaded by women and you n n: girls than the darkest areas of Africa. So many are the hideous crimes committed along Its shady patns that the place has become known as "Death Lime." After dark It Is the hiding place of some unknown beast In human form, whose fiendish delight Is to pounce upon Innocent and helpless victim?. Pretty Anna Markowlti was the last to fall Into the clutches of this mysterious mnn-gorilla. With the death of Abraham Cohen, her com panion, the crime becomes a double murder. Intensified In horror by the assault alleged to have been com mitted upon the young woman be fore she was strangled. Cohen, a traveling salesman, had gone for a stroll with the Markowtts Inters, Anna and Bertha. They were seated In a grove near the Sol diers' Home. As the three chatted together pleasantly two shots were heard. Cohen ran to the road. He fell fatally wounded by two bullets. An unknown monster rushed upon the girls. Bertha fled until she sank unconscious to the ground. Strangled. Anna was found, strangled to death, and mutilated. Kvldences pointed to a fearful struggle. The clothing had been nearly torn from 1ler body. The arms were crowded down over the eyes, as if to shut out a horrible picture. Last fall the bruised form of beautiful Dona Oilman was found only a short distance away, and within the last several weeks there hnve been three other assaults In the same vicinity. Who ia this mysterious st rangier whose especial prey are young girls? Such Is the question that Is causing brave men to shudder and women to upend sleepless nights. Whether he Is half man. hnlf ma niac, who is of good appearance In dally life, but occasionally lapses Into a sort of beast, or a mental and moral degenerate of uncoum appearance certain It Is, the resi dents of the neighborhood cannot rest In peace while he roams at large. notMi:ii is on vkkge OK SOFT COAL FAMINE. Boulder. Colo., August 12. The Boulder Electric Light & Power com pany has enough coal to run tomor row only. Unless some coal is re ceived tomorrow tho works must close down, and that will not only stop the street car and the lighting system, but also cause many insti tutions in town to shut down, notably the printing offices and the dally papers.

Mosed the examination of Valles by having him deny substantially all the material evidence adduced by the territory during the entire trial. Valles' demeanor on the witness stand was Ihe same displayed at the bar Impassable and devoid of expression. No animation; only the mere moving of the lips to answer questions and the snapping of his eyes. His face was a swartniy mask of defiance. The cross examination of the wit ness merely ascertained that he was 4i years of age and was born In Mexico, and after coming to New Mexico has lived at La Joya, Sablnal and Progresu. The testimony of Valles closed the case for the de fense. Territory's) lU'lnittal. The territory Introduced but two witnesses In rebuttal. 51. C. Bennett was recalled to give testimony regarding a stolen mare found In possession of Valles, and Julius Meyers, of the mounted po lice, was recalled to give expert test imony regarding foot prints. Mr. Meyers stated that a foot would make foot prints of different sizes according to the nature of the ground trod on and the gait being traveled. Arguments. District Attorney Clancy opened the arguments toy paying the de ceased colonel a glowing tribute. He spoke of the deceased's public and private life and of his own personal respect and affection for him. The speaker referred to the deceased ns the champion of the race to which he belonged and paid tribute to his efficient public career as superin tendent of public instruction, and as a vigorous enemy of wrongdoers. The district attorney then review ed the case from beginning to end, as put forth by the territory. It was a strong case. "It used to be a crime to be a citi zen of Home, and truly it was a crime." These were the words with which Lnrrazolo opened the most ardent appeal ever made to a Jury. In his final address to the jury Prosecutor Clancy referred to It as a magnlfl cant display of oratorical eloquence. Mr. Larrasolo's resume of the case of the defense was equally as eloquent and masterly as the oratori cal effort which preceded it. He told the Jury to look Into their hearts for their minds and let their conscience guide them in finding whether or not the defendant was guiltv and deprive of him his liberty, his life. In his final argument Prosecutor Clancy again dwelt fn ktndly meas ures upon the life of the deceased. Colonel Chaves and attacked In a most vigorous manner the argument of the defense. The prosecution consumed an hour in its opening address and two hours and thirty minutes in its closing address. Attorney Larrazolo spoke continu ally for over two hours. Trtsfense' Alibi. The Friday morning session opened with Attorney Larrazolo outlining In a brief statement to the Jury the line the defense expected to pursue in proving an all'bl for the defendant. The first evidence offered by the de fense was a small bit given by Fro- oaflo Cordova, a witness for the ter ritorv. made at the .preliminary hear lTrg of Valles, In which the witness said that he visited the Sal as home the morning after the killing with reference to a horse- At the present hearing Cordova said that he did not think that he gave such testimony, but went to the Salas home for a different purpose. The first witness offered for the defense was Manuel tranches. San rhes was sheriff elect of the new county of Torrance and was present when Valles was arrested. The witness examined the 44 cali bre rifle offered by the territory, as being found t the Valles home when Valles was arrested, and said that It was not the rllle that he saw at the Valles home.. Tho witness was not cross examin ed by the territory. F. K. Dunleavy was called by the defense to show that Valles made frequent visits to Pngreso regarding a contract for baling hay. Mr. Dunleavy was conducting a store at Willard In November. 1!M)4, and sold Valles a hay baling machine. The defense's next witness was Rs iperldlon Lueras, a resident of Pro greso. The witness testified that he had made a contract with Valles on the 20th of November, 1904, for baling hay. the defense by this evidence at tempting to show that Valles had been to Progreso on 'business con cerning this contract. On the cross examination the terri tory asked the witness If he had not been convicted of sheep stealing In the district court of .Socorro county, Btid that the prosecution had been due to Colonel Chaves, The evidence finally developed that Lueras had been first convicted and then acquitted of sheep stealing. The next witness was Leonor Se dHlo de Lueras, wife of the preced ing witnesa. The witness testified that she was at the house of Valles the evening of the killing, and saw Valles work ing In his blacksmith shop by the llgt.t of a lantern. The sun had set. After gathering from the witness tes timony regarding who had accompa nied her to and from the Valles home that evening, the counsel asked her the following impea-iilng question, bearing on the testimony of the ter ritory of the wife of Porcoplo Cor dova. On cross examination, Larrazolo had asked the witness If she had told Mrs. Lueras, the present witness, that Valles had remained and slept at her house all night the night Colonel Chaves was killed. The question was: "Is It not a fact, .Mrs. Luonix, Unit on w vera I occasions ilurinir last year and Uio year iH-forc, previous to Hie rot urn of your husband from the HiiU'iitlnr,v, that In speak lug of this matter Willi your sistvr-lii-law, Leo nor Lueras. In your own home, you told Iter tluit the defendant luul re mained and slept at your house the iiilit of Saturday, the. 20th of No venilKT. 11101. nnd that ho remained there nil nljjht and never went out?" The witness answered "yes." Valles Worked by Lamp Light. As a link in the alibi evidence, which the defense hoped to produce to show that Valles was at home at the hour Colonel Chaves was killed, Jacobo Salazar a relative of the Lueras 'by marlage, was put on the stand and testlllcd that Mrs. Lueras did not arrive home that evening from her visit to the Valles ranch un til 6:30 o'clock. The next witness, a brother of Jacobo Sedlllo, testified that Jacobo Sedlllo was with him all day of the 26th of November, 1904, and slept all night the night Colonel Chaves was killed In a house with him. This was an effort to break down the case of the prosecution at that point, where it was shown that Sedll lo was at the house of Domingo Val les the evening of the killing. .Mild Surprise. The prosecution sprung a mild sensation on the court at tr; close of the forenoon session Friday by ask ing a witness, a step daughter of Lazarlo Cordova, if she had seen and talked to Domingo Valles since com ing to Estancla. The witness said that she had not talked to Valles but that Valles had told her not to forget about some dates. The first witness called In the af ternoon was Ceclllo Yoelovetta, a resident of Manzano. The witness said that he had seen Valles in October, thirty days previous to the killing, and Valles told him not to scare Col onel Chaves. Witness Admits Untruth. "Mrs. Romero, did you not say yesterday at the house of Julius Mey ers In the presence of Mrs. Meyers, Oeorge W. Armljo and Captain For noff, that Valles, while In a fit of an ger against .Captain Torres, at the penitentiary, say that you would some day leave some more of these sons of the same as you left Colonel Chaves?" This question asked by District Attorney Clancy and answer ed In the affirmative by the witness, who added, 'ibut I did not then tail (he truth." This was a thunderbolt from a clear sky to the case of the prosecu tion, tireat reliance had been placed on the testimony of this witness, .who was brought from the penitentiary at Santa Fe on Tuesday and secreted In Estancla to await being called to the witness stand. The prosecution, however, Anally extracted a statement from Romero to the effect that he In August, 1905, told Dick Huber and Jimmy Chaves that Valles had told him that he had killed Colonel Chaves. Sedlllo and Valles. The next witness was Jacobo Se dlllo, the man who was indicted with Valles for the murder of Colonel Chaves. Sedlllo and Valles were to gether the evening of the murder. It was suspected that he was an accom plice to the murder, and rode one of the two horses that loft the tracks found at the bush near Plnos Wells the morning after the killing. Valles nnd Sedlllo had not been so close together since the preliminary hearing. The two former pals stared nt each other for several moments, Sedlllo. who Is the younger man, ap parently expecting some expression nf recognition from Valles. But none came. Valles was too wily. There eyes met repeatedly during the time Sedlllo was on the stand, but the expressions were always blank, Valles keeping his usual pose, hav ing his chin on his hsnd or twirling his mustache. Sedillo had made statements at different times bearing on the case, which were very damag ing to the case of the defense, but when placed on the stand proved a very' unwilling witness. When 'pre sented with statements signed by him. Sedlllo said that he could not tell whether they were true or not. In one of these statements, Sedlllo said that Valles hail asked him to go with him to kill Colonel Chaves. Another of the statements was to the effect that Valles had told him that Chaves iwould not live very long and that Valles said that If he (Se dillo) should ever say anything about t. he would kill him. The other statement was similar to the last. The nrosecutlon then read a lengthy document, containing ques tions put to the witness and the wit ness' answers In which the witness stated that he suspected that Valles did the killing. This document was made In the ipresence of Judge Mann and Captain Fornoft of the mounted ollce. Sedillo denied the answers, and said that If he made them, he did not have good sense. The document was Identified by In ternreter Sena and Court Stenogra .nher Prentice and offered as evidence against an objection made by the de fense, the objection being" overruled ihv the court. The statement made by Sedlllo In this document was the most vital evi dence .produced by the prosecution. The prosecution closed Its case by having Richard Huber lrtenttry a oe claration made and sworn to by Se dillo at Santa Fe last May.

Parents transmit them to their children, and so it goes on down the family line for years and years unless the taint is removed from the blood. Espe cially is this true of Scrofula, for it is a disease that is "bred in the bone," and unless the blood is purified and every trace of the tronble removed the miserable disease will finally undermine the entire health and wreck the life of its victim. The usual symptoms of Scrofula are enlarged glands or tumors about the neck, which often burst and become discharging ulcers, weak eyes, Catarrh of the head and throat, skin diseases, etc. The trouble Leintr so firtuly intrenched in the bhxvl often attacks the bones, resulting in White Swelling, or hip disease, while a waxy, pallid appearance of the skin, loss of strength and energy, and often lung afTections, show that the disease is entirely destroying the bright red corpuscles and rich, nutritive qualities of the blood. Scrofula being a constitutional disease, one affecting the entire circulation, must be treated with a remedy that builds up and Strengthens every part of the system, which has so' 1 on r b -en denied the Strength and nourishment it should have receive 1 fr .u f.ie blood.

TZZ LXJITH Z?ZZ'.TIZ CO., ATLANTA. CA. One of the Important Duties ot Physicians ana the Well-informed of the World is to learn as to the relative standing and reliability of the leading manufactur ers of medicinal agents, as the most eminent physicians are the most careful as to the uniform quality and perfect purity of remedies prescribed by them, and it is well known to physicians and the Well-Informed generally that the California Fig Syrup Co., by reason of its correct methods and perfect equipment and the ethical character of its product has attained to the high standing in scientific and commercial circles which is accorded to successful and reliable houses only, and, therefore,, that the name ot the Company lias become a guarantee of the excellence of its remedy. TRUTH AND QUALITY appeal to the Well-Informed in every walk of life and are essential to permanent suc cess and creditable standing, therefore we wish to call the attention of all who would enjoy good health, with its blessings, to the fact that it involves the question of right living with all the term implies. With proper knowledge of what is best each hour of recreation, of enjoyment, of contemplation and of effort may be made to contribute to that end and the use of medicines dispensed with generally to great advantage, but as in many instances a simple, wholesome remedy may be invaluable if taken at the proper time, the California Fig Syrup Co. feels that it is alike important to present truthfully the subject and to supply the one perfect laxative remedy which has won the appoval of physicians and the world-wide acceptance of the Well-Informed because of the excellence of the combination, known to all, and the original method of manufac ture, which is known to the California Fig Syrup Co. only. This valuable remedy has been long and favorably known under the name of Syrup of Figs and has attained to world-wide acceptance as the most excellent of family laxatives, and as its pure laxative principles, obtained from Senna, are well known to physicians and the Well-informed of the world to be the best of natural laxatives, w have adopted the more elaborate name of Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna as more fully descriptive of the remedy, but doubtless it will always be called for by the shorter name of Syrup of Figs and to get its beneficial effects always note, when purchasing, the full name of the Company California Fig Syrup Co. plainly printed on the front of every package, whether you simply call for Syrup of Figs or by the full name Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna as Syrup of Figs and . . . . . , .i -r T" c Elixir of Senna is the one laxative remedy manutactured ny tne camornia rig sjrup Co. and the same heretofore known by the name Syrup of Figs which has given satisfaction to millions.
