tween herself and Mrs. Emma A. El

"While she was using the 'phone her
husband came up to the desk and as
ho had been In the kitchen he had
some flour on his coat. I told him that
his clothes were dusty with flour, and
Mrs. Elderton immediately flew in a
rage and said, 'You're stuck on him,
too, • are you. You're no lady and if
you don't shut up and leave this place
I will break your head with this tele
"We had an argument and the ivo
nian was still enraged and she said
to her husband, 'Give me that gun
out of the drawer there and I'll put
a hole In you." Blderton declined, and
Mrs. Elderton asked one of the patrons
of the place to take her away. She
left the restaurant with him, but re
turned ten minutes later and asked
mt- If I wasn't going to go. I went
then and Mrs. Elderton cajled me to
her room some days later and tried to
make friends with me, and she showed
me some gimlet holes bored in the wall
of her room and she. said she had a
pretty good Idea who had bored the

ments in the Hotel Hollywood and was
attended by the house physician, Dr.

taurant was In such a bad way that he
was compelled to move.
He also told of several lnstnnces in

Windy, rainy weather for today and
tomorrow Is the verdict of the local
forecaster. Los Angeles is right in the
center of a high area and almost any
kind of disagreeable weather may be
Arizona has been the recipient of
frequent snows in the last few days

Nearly an Inch of rain has fallen in
Yuma during the past week and a
thunder storm Is reported from
North of the Tehachapl the pressure
Is falling and cloudy weather with no
rain is to be expected, says Franklin.
In the southern portion of California

but a heavy rainfall in the vicinity of
Los Angeles would be of little benefit
nnd possibly would injure the oranges,
