Mellon Notifies Michi
gan Solon Arbitrary
Asseument on 1919
Return Will Be Made
/ —
(By The Associated Press.)
% WASHINGTON, D. C., March 12.-The
treasury has prepared for delivery to
onator Couzens of Michigan tomorrow
a notice of an arbitrary assessment on
profits allaged to have been made by
in the sale of his minority holdings
of stock in the Ford Motor company
in 1919.
While the computation of the assess
ment is practically complete, it is the
intention of the treasury to withhold
it for one day to give the Michigan
senator, who is chairman of the spe
cial committee investigating the internal
revenue bureap an opportunity to sign
* waiver of the statute of limitations
if ho so desires..
The treasury sent to the senator
Monday a copy of a memorandum from
a private source outside of the treas
ury bureau reporting to show that pro
fit* he had made on the sale of the
stocH to Henry Ford had been under
assessed and that between $10,000,000
and $11,000,000 still was due the treas
ury.
At the same time Senator Couzens
declared in the senate an attempt was
being made to “discipline” him for his
activities in investigating affairs of
the revenue bureau.
The statute of limitations which Sen
ator Coutens has declined to waive,
runs from tomorrow and the treasury
declared it was faced with obtaining a
waiver or the applying of an assess
ment, made arbitrarily from its rec
ords.
Secretary Mellon said the treasury is
precluded by law from making public
the amount of the arbitrary levy, add
ing that there had been no intention to j
give publicity to the case.

NEW \ORK, Nk Y-. March 13.—
Many verbal crocodile tears ever
Babe Ruth’s financial and physical
condition were shed today by war
correspondents in dispatches from the
Yankees encampment at St. Peters
' bur^. Fla.
The Babe was hepp.v as a lark,
^baRfrim; flies just before he was in*
[ formed of repoits that he was stone
brok"* and a physical wreck. Then
at lrnoheon. ns the Now York Tri
bune ccuts it:
The sr-riR died on his lips and tears
tolled down Babe’s checks as bits as
derby hats. Tender hearted little
Mhitey Witt approached Mr. Ruth
anJ in mournful accents murmured:
“Say it ain’t true, Babe. say it
l ain’t true."
Mr. Ruth answered never a word,
but advanced upon the hotel office
■with measured tread and slow.
"Is Colonel Ri'ppeit still in this
hotel?" he asked.
“Yes indeed. Nobody has killed
him lately? He's still alive?”
“Very much so."
“Well, how e*>- t p-, brrke when he
still has money?”
i There the matter rests at present.
VALLEY TOUR
ENDS TONIGHT,
Morrison & McCall Firm
Believers in Valley
Progress
__ t
“M. H. McCall and P. M. Morrison
have not only expressed themselves as
being well satisfied with the develop
ment of the Valley, following their
present visit here, but have shown
their belief in the development in the
Valley in the future by planning for
extensions in their electric and ice serv
ice which will meet the future demand,"
said E. R. Neiswanger of San Benito,
manager of the Valley holdings of the
McCall interests,
"Both of the managers of the com
pany have marveled at the great de
velopment which has taken place here
since their last visit, and have expressed
themselves as being satisfied with the
Valley’s prospects for the future.
"In this kind of work it is necessary
to take future development and demand
into consideration,” Mr. Neiswanger
said. "If we only built to supply the
present demand, when that demand was
satisfied there would be additional calls
on us. We plan for the future, an in
the Valley the planning has to be made
with the rapid development here taken
into ocnsideration.”
Seventy-five persons who are attend
ing the convention of the Morrison &
McColl interests arrived in Brownsville
yesterday afternoon, filling all of the
hotels in the city to capacity, and last
night a banquet was furnished at the
Matamoros Hotel by the Matamoros
Electric Co., of which Emilio Puig is
manager.
This banquet was in the nature of a
celebration of the fact that the power
line of the Valley Electric & Ice Co.
from San Benito to Matamoros has re
cetnly been completed, enabling Mata
moros to have 24 hour service sufficient
to supply the entire city, instead of a
limited service which the city had here
tofore. i
Mr. Neiswanger pointed out this
morning that the extension into Mata
moros is one of the progressive
stages of development, of the company,
and mentioned the large power plant in
the process of construction at Mission.
This plant will he completed in about 60
days, he said.
The visitors to Brownsville, including
M. H. McColl and P. M. Morrison, the
owner?, Mrs. Whiteside, secretary, Mr.'
Neiswanger I,. P. Bryne, F. E. Ludden,;
C. G. Mallot and others, left this morn-:
ing for a tour of Brownsville and vicin-J
ity, after which they went on up the
military road to Mercedes, and will tour
that port of the Valey during the day.
The visitors will return to San Benito
tonight, and will disband as the meeting
will be concluded at a dinner at the
San Benito hotel at 6 o’clock tonight.
Mr. Neiswanger mentioned that per
sons who were present at the four
day Valley convention were from five
different states, and that all of them
would take back the message of the
Valley’* greatness and progress.

NEW DISCOVERY LIMBERS UP
, STIFF, SORE, SWOLLEN JOINTS
Soak right into tendons and lig
aments of your joints—right
where the trouble starts—
Then blessed comfort
comes quickly
Yes; it’s true—the world progresses.
All you have to do nowadays to limber
up that stjff, rusty knee joint is to
soueeze a half inch of miracle working
substance from a tube.
Then rub it on the offending part for
about a minute or until it soaks through
the skin and disappears on its errand of
mercy.
Then read the evening newspaper? and
go to bed. #
The chances are that your misbehav
ing knee joint will lose its “creak" while
you aie dreaming about the high fences
you used to leap when you were a
youngster.
“And in the morning,” says one who
has tried the new discovery, "you’]! fee!
so happy that you’ll want to jump into
your sportiest clothes and walk briskly
down the street just to show the neigh
bors tkat you are not as old as they
think you are.”
Joint-Ease they call this wonder work
ing substance, for the reason that when
ordinary remedies fail to limber up the
stiff, inflamed rheumatic joint, or re
duce the swelling, Joint-Ease succeeds.
It’s a good name fo** a good, clean,
penetrating prescription that in just a
few.months has proven to a multitude
of people that lame, swollen, distorted
joints can speedily have tvc kinks taken
out of them and work as smoothly as
ever.
But Toint-Ease is for bothersome
Joints, whether in knee, ankle, arch, hip.
shoulder, spine or finger and for that
miroos# its sale at 60 cent a tube is
immense.
All druggists have a big supply of it
| dmjgi^ts everywhere report a big
j demand.
Always remember when Joint-Ease

NOTED GERMAN
SPY IS MISSING
Graves Is Known to
Have Powerful Ene
mies; Death Feared
fBv The Associated Press.")
NflW YORK. N. Y., March 12.—The
flew York American says today it has
learned that Dr. Armgaard Karl Graves,
whose exploits as an international spy
won him world wide fame, lias been
massing since last August when he
tcok a trip to St. Louis to* gather in
formation concerning an alleged plot to
restore the Hohenzcllerns to the throne
of Germany.
The American says that friends of
Dr. Graves have placed the case in the
hands of a private detective agency
which has reason to suspect that he
may have met with foul play. Investi
gation by this agency, the Ameiiean
says, revealed that Dr. Graves had dis
covered a plot to stage a royalist coup
in Germany on March 1 and; to place
the crown prnce upon the throne.
Two days before his disapr*«ranee
Dr. Graves is said to have predicted
that President Ehert of Germany would
die within a period of eight months of
last August. President Ebert’s death
occurred February 28 last, well within
the period mentioned iti this prediction
Dr. Graves also is declared to have
asserted that there were powerful in
fluences working among German-Amer
icans in the United States both in favor
of the planned royalist coup and against
it in| favor of the republic. He him
self is said to have decided to aid in
thwarting the coup.
The American says that a former de
partment of justice operative* knew of
Dr. Graves’ disappearance hut had lost
his trail at a railroad station in New
York from which he was about to leave
for St Louis.
Dr. Graves was interned at Fort Ogle
thorpe by the American government
during the world war. He has written
two books exposing th® working of the
German spy system and is sa'd to have
once been chief of the German secret
service.

NEW ORLEANS COTTON
NEW ORLEANS, La., March 12.—Al
though Liverpool cables were about as
due. the cotton market had an easier
start due to weather conditions. The
government forecast called for rain in
south Texas. First trades were 1 to 5
-points down and the market sagged,
May dropping to 25.68. July to 25.9 J
and October to 25.07, or down 12 to 13
points from yesterday’s closing levels.
By* the end of the first half hour prices
had rallied 5 to 6 points from the lows.
The market continued to ease off dur
ing the m-orning under rather liberal
liquidation induced by better prospects
for rain in the west, particularly in
Texas. Dallas reported a sprinkle and
other places reported showers south of
Dallas and increasing cloudiness with
damp east w'nds indicating approaching
•rains. May traded down to 25,51. July
■to 25.75, and October to 24.85. or 29

day. The market at noon was steadier,

Croup
Quickly Relieved \ <
Without Dosing ^
• *
When the child
seems croupy in
the evening apply
Vicks over throat
and chest, spread
thickly and cover
with a warm flan
nel. This usually
averts a night at
tack.
If croup comes on without warning,
use of Vicks often brings relief in 15
minutes—eases the difficult breathing
and subdues the racking cough.
Vicks is ideal for all children’s cold
troubles. Being externally applied it
avoids so much dosing and can be freely
used on even the youngest child.
Vicks is just as good of course for
eroun-up’» colds, and is also an excel
lent application for cuts,' burns, bruises,
muscular screness and skin itchings.
