CHICAGO—Albert Hoffman was
convicted for having been a mem
ber of an auto theft ring, but he
was put on a five-year probation
and not sent to Jail. But here's the
catch. His probation specifies that
he can’t operate or own an auto,
ride in one. ride in an airplane, use
liquor or visit gambling establlsh
mehts. That's almost as bad as the
Jail sentence.
In 1875. an earnest young man
began to practice medicine. As a
family doctor, he sow the harm in
harsh purgatives for constipation and
began to search for something harm
less to the sensitive bowels.
Out of his experience was born a
famous prescription. He wrote it
thousands of times. It proved an
ideal laxative for old and young. As |
oeople saw how marvelously the most
sluflCish bowels are started and bad
Dreath, headaches, feverishness,
nausea, gas. poor appetite, and such
disorders, are relieved by the pre
scription, it became necessary to put
it <fp ready for use. Today, Dr.
Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin, as it is
1 ied, is the world's most, popular
\xative. It never varies from Dr.
, Tidwell’s original effective and

Here They Are
At last the city of Brownsville
has street signs. Putting tnis in
the past tense is slightly premature,
it is true, but it is definitely as
sured that the signs will soon be
erected at all street intersections
within the city limits. Z. A. Rosen
thal has said that the signs are or
dered and will be here within the
next three weeks.

As things stand at present, when
a visitor wants to know where he
is he has to ask someone. And nine
times out of ten the person accost
ed is unable to give the informa
tion. The stranger looks around help
lessly, but all he knows is that he
is standing on a street somewhere
(he can tell that because the streets
are paved well), but where, he
doesn’t know.

In the suburbs a family can live
in a house several years and not
know that the street in front of
the house has a name. In West
Brownsville, for instance, on the
outskirts of the city limits, this is

Next on the program, we hope, is
the correct numbering of homes.
This is almost as important as
street signs. Brownsville is still a
small-town place as long as a perosn

house on the corner" when describ
in the location of his residence.

The untimely death of Joe Jagou,
21, i nursaay morning, was a dis
tinct shock to his hundreds of
friends over the Valley.
His generosity, his good nature,
the honesty of his actions, captivat
ed the hearts of those with whom
he came in contact.
At the Brownsville high school,
were he was a student, the faculty
and the students both loved him.

He had lived here all his life, and
was well known not only in Browns
ville. but all over the Valley.
His death, added to those occur
ring within the past few weeks in
Brownsville, makes the list appal
ling. An epidemic of deaths, it has
been called.

Another mention must be made
of the flood.
It Is rapidly becoming the chief

talking about It in their sleep.

probably call on you tomorrow and
ask: 'Have you a little boat in your

The subject of women's clubs has
been cussed and discussed pro and
con during the past two years, na
tonal magazines printing articles on
the subject. It has been almost de
cided that women talk so much
that the clubs are dying out. One
of the Big Four magazines (Scrib
ner’s. Atlantic, American Mercury,
Century) printed an article in which
It was stated that women like to
talk, but refuse to listen to others
talk. The article claimed that for
this reason clubs were decreasing
in number rapidly.
Not only that, but so much time
is wasted in talking that nothing
was ever accomplished.

of the old west, enhanced by “Beau
Bandit,” Radio Pictures’ outdoor
drama, today and tomorrow at the
Queen theater. All the glamour of
the Arizona desert country has
been transferred to the screen In
this thrilling tale which comes as
a welcome relief from the stereo
typed drawing-room stories.
No studio seas, no matter how
magnificent, can compare with the
neauty of nature's own scenery, as
seen in “Beau Bandit.” Outdoor
lequences give a breadth and move
ment to a story that cannot be
r.valed by action within four walls.
And “Beau Bandit” has been film
ed almost entirely in outdoor locale.

"The Social Lion” Is an adapta
tion of a famous Octavus Roy Cohen
story "Marco Himself” — and it
proves to be right down Mr. Oak

To begin with, it's a neat little
plot. Just like all of Octavus Roy
Cohen’s stories, there are many
surprise twists in the telling of this

snirth-provoking and convincing.
But most important of all. it
seems to us. is the inimitable clown
