HAVMAHAHDTIME GENERAL OROZCO ASKS TOE FEDEOALS TO PATROL CHIHAUOAU. He Flans to Block Flans of Dis gruntled Fanatics to Loot and De stroy—Mexicans Fear Mob Buie— Expected Big Battle Will Not Take Flace— U. S. Soldiers Discharged. General Pascual Orozco, the rebel chief, has decided to ask Gen. Heurta, the federal commander, advanc ing nwihward with 6U00 men, to agree to the policing of this city by a rebel garrison whose neutrality should be re spected by the government, declining to admit that he is contem plating au evacuation, General Orozco says he did not wish to submit the city with its numerous foreign residents to the orgies of a fanatical mob. Chihuahua. Though Expect Guerrilla Warfare. The garrison at J aurez may be the first to evacuate and begin guerrila warfare tactics. It virtually is certain that there will be no big battle at Bachimba, 46 miles south of hero, as has been expected. The rebels may put up a lively fight for a brief interval to hold the fédérais back, but an orderly retreat really be ing planned, together with the destruc tion of every bridge and culvert be tween Bachimba and Chihauhua fur ther to delay the government advance. Efforts to convert into cash gold bul lion confiscated within the last few days indicates the desperate straits of tbo rebel army. Discontent within the rank and at headquarters is also ap parent. Mob Violence Is Feared. When General Orozco evacuates tho it is feared that certain leaders city will satisfy grudges and that the dis gruntled element will seek recourso in mob violence, this that General Orozco leave 200 or 300 men and officers here, with the understanding that on the en try hero of General Huerta's federal forces the garrison be allowed to de part with its arms. This dispatch escaped the censorship of the federal authorities. It is in anticipation of wishes to Foreigners Are Released. Officials at rebel headquarters reticent as to their plans, but the in tention to send an emissary to General Huerta to negotiate for the possible abandonment of Chihuahua is taken to in connection with other symp aro mean, toms of disorganization here, that the Mexican revolution will pass in a few days from an organized revolt against tho Madero government to guerrilla warfare, uncontrolled and irresponsible. Significance attaches to granting of honorable discharges to Sam Droliin of Philadelphia; Tracy Richardson of La mar, Mo., and Jack Zimmerman of Pu laski, Pa., three American soldiers, who had handled tho artillery for the rebel columns under General Campa, operat around Torreon. The ing recently Americans, after the southwestern cam paign, returned here, but decided to abandon soldiering in the rebel army with its present outlook, foreigners fighting with the rebels have asked for and been granted discharges. Most of the MEETS CATALOGUE PRICES. It has been truly said that language exists for the purpose of giving expres sion to our thoughts. It has been said with equal force that one of tho uses of the language is to hide our true thoughts, suys Chicago Retailers' Jour ual. Tho mail order houses understand this and in their department of litoru turo they aro careful to secure men who call hide tho truth by a skillful use of the language. The mail order house, as a matter of cold fact, cannot undersell tho good merchant in tho outlying small towns. But by tho skillful use of the King's English they can make a lot of people think they can. And that is how they get tho moat of tlioir business. They fool tho peo ple. Out in Mount Pleasant, Iowa, is a grocery doing business under the name of Stiics Bros. This firm is not nfraid of tlie mail order houses that attempt to do business in that section of the country. Price for prico and quality for quality they meet the mail order house competition. In fact they met it with advertise ments of such a startling nature ns to attract tho special attention of tho mail order house, and that institution sot literary man at work to show that They sent n Stiles Bros, were wrong, nmn to Mount Pleasant to buy goods of Stiles Bros, and compare goods and priées with their own. Then they sent out a circular in which they snid: "We guarantee thnt quality for quality, price for price, wo can give 50 per cent greater value.'' Now that might sound good to some farmers who really know little of values. But to n man of ordinary senso the statement, carries its untruth on von its face. There arc no grocers who make 25 per cent on their goods no matter how well they mnv buy. Tf Montgomery Wnrd & Go. bought in car lots from first hands nnd sold them nt actual cost they could not sell nt a reduction of 25 per cent let alone reduction of 50 per cent. Tho manufacturer himself selling direct to consumers could not beat the a < retail grocer's price 20 per cent with out going into bankruptcy. Replying to the extravagantly false statements of the mail order house Stiles Bros, caused an advertisement to be placed in the local paper and compared their own prices with those of the mail order houses, taken from the mail order catalogue. For example, the mail order house quotes 00 pounds of rolled oats for 98 cents in Chicago. Stiles Bros, quote 30 pounds of rolled oats in Mt. Pleas ant at the same price. The mail order house quotes Santa Clara prunes, 10 pounds for $1.12 Chi cago. Stiles Bros.' price for tho same prunes is $1.10 in Mt. Pleasant. Can ned Crawford peaches are offered by the mail order house at 89 for three cans. Stiles Bros.' price for the same goods is 96 cents in Mt. Tleasant. The mail order house offers G cans of Maine corn for 64 cents Chicago. Stiles Bros.' price is 66 cents Mt. Pleasant. And so on through a long list. On the whole the prices average about the same. That is, the mail order house quotes about the same price on goods, Chicago, as Stiles Bros, quote Mt. Pleasant prices. Add the freight to the Chicago prices and the mail order house goods average higher than Stiles Bros.'quo tations. And yet this mail order house has the audacity to write the patrons of Stiles Bros.'.store that they can save them 50 per cent on groceries! The mail order house people know this is not true. They know very well that it is simply impossible for them to lay down goods in Mt. Pleasant at a better price than Stiles Bros, quote. It is time that some department of the federal government took the mail order houses to task for misrepresenta tion and the misuse of the United States mails. Wo are all compelled to tell the truth on our labels about tho goods we offer for sale. And Uncle Sam is pret ty active in preventing the use of the mails for the purpose of deceiving tho public. The mail order house thrives on this sort of fraud. In the interest, of honest merchants and susceptible consumers tho misrepresentations of tho mail order houses should be stopped. Plan Good Boads Congress. President Taft has consented to servo ns the honorary president of the Ameri can Road Congress, which is to be the combination of the big conventions of the American Association for Highway Improvement, the American Automobile Association, tho National Association of Road Material and Machinery Manu factures and nil their alliliated organi zations. The congress is td be held next fall, either in September or October, the exact time and place not yet having been determined. The president has agreed to act as honorary president because the con gress is designed to crystalizo the road movement in the United States, the associations which are to participate in the congress have previously been holding individual conventions, have been working whole-heartedly, but in different ways, for the improve ment of the roads of the United States. The congress will bring all factions to gether. It will line up the farmers with the automobilists; the state road auth orities with the federal authorities; the manufacturers with tho engineers; the scientists with the laymen. Every interest working for a better Bystem of public roads in the Unitod States will be represented at tho Amer ican Road congress, which is expected to bo one of the biggest conventions, outside those of a political nature, over held in this country. With tho Ameri can Association for Highway Improve ment alone, nearly one hundred state, county and municipal road improvement associations are allied. With the Ameri can Automobile Association, hundreds of automobile organizations are affiliat ed. All these will be represented at the congress. The American Automobile Association will arrange for automo bile tours to tho convention city and will play an important part in the con vention. Certain days of the week will be set aside for the special program of the A. A. A. and the automobilists who will bo present will be thoroughly in formed as to tho various types of road best adapted to their uses. The United States office of public roads has arranged to present a com plete exhibit of all its electric models, showing road machinery at work, and models showing the various types of road. There will be stercopticou views and lectures by experts. President Taft, as honorary president of tho con gress, will make an address. Tho other speakers will include some of tho lend ing government officials, diplomats, en gineers, nnd railroad nnd automobile The convention will last n week to All Ail to of of to of men. and there will be a program for tho en tertainment of the distinguished guests. The great economic principle nt the basis of tho educational work of the American Rond Congress is that monoy invested in the public roads makes mi nimi returns almost as great as the money originally oxpouded. rials of tho congress have prepared figures showing Huit tho improvement of tho main highways of tho country, constituting about 20 per cent of nil public roads, would result in an annunl saving of at least $250,000,000 in tho cost of hauling alone. It is estimated thnt the amount saved annually in haul ing alone would be sufficient to improve 50,000 miles of road at an average of $5,000 per mile. In five yenrs, this would improve 250,000 miles of road, which would bo sufficient to bring the total mileage of improved highways up to the required 20 per cent. Tho increase in land values is another important factor that will be dwelt upon at the congress. a to sot n Tho o Ili in for of on BABY MURDERED AT PORTLAND Frieda Fark Brutally Kills Infant Cousin.

"You have never heard of Zlrg stauk's Hair Grower?" ho remarked guietly. "No of course you have not. 1 am the inventor. Dr. Ulysses G. Ztrg itauk. No, I never marketed it. This country is not kind to the inventor, but It is a grand spot for the imitator of the inventor. If I put Zlrgstauk's Hair Brower on the market I'd waste all my time serving injunctions, while ev sry unprincipled idea pirate between Duluth and Galveston would be getting rich by selling my stuff." "But the patent laws?" I inquired. Zlrgstauk sniffed haughtily at a wan lering puff of cool air that enme up trom the North river and soothed his serves by bringing a worn boot heel ind a match into violent collision. "They're all right," he murmured. "All right for the gentlemen I men tioned and the persons you hire to get the patent. The inventor gets be tween the two and he gets hurt.

That is what I said, sir. I had 126 object les sons up to that time, and the rem nants of my charity wouldn't bring three cents in an auction room. That's when I got the idea. It came to me one night, and next morning I was on my way to 'Frisco en route for the South Seas." I looked surprised, and Zlrgstauk smiled. "Why the South Seas?" I questioned. "I Intended to grow hair and sell It to them Instead of selling them the preparation," he snapped. "Do you understand? I was out to circumvent those thieves who prey on unfortu nates like me who spend our time cor rallng every little Idea that blows our way. 'Hire niggers down In the Isl ands to grow you six foot fleeces with the help of your tonic,' were the exact words of the dream, 'and then cart the wigs heme and 6ell them to every short-haired female in the United States.' "Four weeks nfterward I was at Auckland, New Zealand, and from there I got a passage down to Puroroa, one of the outliers of the Gilbert group. I was far away from Broadway on that little spot, and after I mixed a few gallons of the tonic I got busy. I rubbed the heads of a few score of those niggers, after making an agree ment with them regarding the crop that would result, and then I wandered round and made calculations concern ing the value of a few hundred six-foot wigs delivered In Broadway or Picca dilly." Zirkstauk paused and watched a I man swinging In space above a new building. The thin wire support was hardly discernible. "That fellow up there Is In no dan ger," he murmured. "We might think he Is, but the chances of one of those i trees falling on our heads Is far great er than the chance of that wire snap ping. I'm just trying to show you that we haven't got down to the propel method of guessing how and when and where old Nemesis is going to kick us, I was In the fool mob whyn I was at Puoroa calculating upon the value ot those six-foot lengths that were grow* lng faster than corn In spring time. Those nigs grew five inches of hail every day, and I was beginning to sharpen the shears when trouble fell upon me like the wrath of Heaven. "One of those pot-bellied native youngsters stole a five-gallon can of the hair grower, and six hours after ward I had struck the champion bad luck patch of my career. Yes. sir, I was in It up to my neck. That kid rubbed the stuff on his old man's nose while the father was asleep; splashed it pretty freely over his mother's facial rind, and decorated himself in such a manner that he looked like one of those King Charles spaniels the mo ment the tufts of hair started to Bhoot. Nothing could keep the hair off any part of the body touched by Zlrg^ stauk's Hair Grower. "If I got that enn back T might haver stopped the trouble, but the youngster traded it all round the place, after he hnd worked off his spite against hi» parents, and before nightfall there were three hundred Puroroans grow ing hair in places they didn't want hair to grow, nnd using up all the cubb words of the Pacific on yours truly. They came down to my hut in drove» to give personal testimony to the effi cacy of the hair grower, and the only way I could repair the damage was to offer to barber them free. My get-busy days started just then. The kid's father who got the splash on the nose came up to have it trimmed every morning, because he hair grew that fast over night it muffled his voice when he started to order his breakfast of fried yams and coeoanuts. His wife was in the same fix, and every day my troubles increased. Those copper-col ored heathens found that Zlrgstauk'» Hair Grower was the most effective stuff in the world for getting even with an enemy, and, instead of prod ding a foe with a knife, they would syringe him with a half-pint ot the mixture and come round next day to grin when he was turning into the wild man from Borneo nt a fast gait. I cut hair from daylight till nightfall, and 1 even did a bit of rough trimming when the moonlight was strong enough to let me work. "Then I struck the climnx before I was prepared for it. I used to sleep wlth the shears under my head, be cause, being tho only pair on the Isl and, it was a pretty valuable posses-; slon, so you can lmnglno the shock IJ got one morning when I woke up and, found some one had stolen It while slept. I guessed Puoroa would be too^ warm for me without that scissors,, and I knew I hnd little hope of getting; them. Just as I waB debating about, the best way of skipping out, a few of| my early morning customers started batter the door, so I loped out that back way and made for the beach. I| stole a canoe and pulled as hard as Xj could toward the horizon, and that; evening I was picked up by a copra, schooner and taken on to Melbourne., No «Ir, I never went back, but If you; see any abnormally hairy specimens oE the human family on exhibition ln th» Bowery it is safe betting that they halt from Puoroa, and if you question them, they'll support my story."

Among these descendant» were a son, grandsons and great and great-great-grandsons — Rothschilds, Lamberts, Leonios, Ephrussls, Sterns, Sassoons, Bubbays.
