MYSTERIOUS STRANGLER OF
"DEATH LANE" SCORES AGAIN
Anna Markowitz, Horribly Killed by the Mysterious Miui-Gorlllu of
Da-ton, Ohio, August 12. 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
So many are the hideous crimes
committed along Its shady patns

After dark It Is the hiding place

form, whose fiendish delight Is to
pounce upon Innocent and helpless
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.
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.

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
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
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
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,
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
Attorney Larrazolo spoke continu
ally for over two hours.
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
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
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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.

XS THE GERMS
Through the blood, diseases are carried from one generation to another.
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

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
