THE WHOLE WEEK'S OOiNGS Short Mention of Interesting Happen ings From Day to Day Through out the World. washington. Congress will be busy this week with many subjects. Tariff tinker ing will have a change of scene, the senate committee on finance taking up the Canadian reciprocity bill with hearings expected to continue throughout the week. After the farm ers' fxge list bill » pa ssçd*. tariff cUs* bater« -*n the house Will rest _£rom their effort« while members of the ways and means committee, behind closed doors, prepare for the next as sault on the Payne-Aldrich bill. Their center of attack is to be the wool schedule. It will be several weeks in all probability before the commit tee is ready to report. Uncle Sam is going to teach women how to cook and keep house on a strictly scientific up-to-date basis, if a bill introduced in the house of repre sentatives by Representative William W. Wilson of Illinois becomes a law. Burned biscuits that have been the cause of many matrimonial tears will be no more, and unpalatable pies and "rubber" steaks will likewise be rele gated to the past. No man need fear to come home and find his table badly set or house not in order. A handful of faithful members of the house witnessed the termination late Saturday of a memorable debate on the tariff free list bill, which prob ably will be voted upon this week. The debate was noteworthy because of the number of speeches and on ac count of the scant membership of the house that followed them. From the opening of the general discussion of the bill there was no restriction of the speaking on the measure. Few of the speeches, however, received much attention. LTniversal woman's suffrage was ad vocated in congress in a joint resolu tion by Representative Mondell of Wyoming Monday. Representative Warburton of Wash ington, a newly elected member of the house of representatives, an nounced his intention of supporting the democratic free list bill in a speech in the house Saturday. While many reports from Mexico that reach the White House are far from encouraging, President Taft and his cabinet are still hoping for peace. The cabinet discussed the Mexican situation at length Friday and it was determined that this government shall "stand pat" for the present. No more troops are to be ordered to Tex as, and, for a time at least, no war vessels are to be sent to Mexican waters. Senator Borah sought vainly to have the house joint resolution pro dding for the election of senators by popular vote made the unfinished business of the senate. He finally yielded to a request of Senator Clark of Wyoming for time to prepare a re port on the resolution and permitted the matter to go over. DOMESTIC.

Replying to a letter from A. R. An drews of Terrell, Commissioner of In surance Gill advises that his depart ment has no jurisdiction, supervision or control over inter -insurance con cerns; no authority has been issued to them and none will be issued and the department disclaims all respon sibility as to them. Property owners are strongly urged to advise them selves as to the solvency of such con cerns before placing insurance with them. He says the department will not undertake to investigate any such concerns nor express an opinion as to their standing.

If you can not run your hand into your pocket and haul forth a roll of $34.55 you are not financially an aver age man. A statement just issued by the United States treasury depart ment gives that amount as the per capita circulation, basing the figures jpon an estimated population on May 1, mi, of 93,705,000. The department showed that on that date there was a feneral stock of money amounting to 13,546,574.337, which included $308, S36.220 held in the treasury and V,237,638,117 in circulation. After receiving a gold medal pre sented by the twenty-one American republics bearing the words, "The American Republics to Andrew Car negie, benefactor of humanity," An drew Carnegie Friday announced he would give $100,000, in addition to nearly a million dollars already do nated, toward the erection of the Pan American union building, to be used for the artistic completion of its ex-, tensive grounds. President Taft, Se« :/ retary of State Knox and hundreds of persons prominent in diplomatic and official life paid honor to Mr. Carnegie in Washington when the medal was presented in the hall of the Pan-American union building. John Barrett, director general of the union, declared that never before in history had any individual been so honored by a group of nations. John McNamara, secretary of the .International Bridge and Structural Tro h w nrlrarB Assa^atfcnr. Wäs ror mally arraigned before Judge Walter Bordwell of the.superior court in Los Angeles Saturday on charges of mur der and dynamiting, and his brother, James B. McNamara, was arraigned on a charge of murder, all in connec tion with the explosion which wreck ed the Los Angeles Times building on October 1 last and killed tsventy-one men. Ortie E. McManigal, alleged to have made a confession implicating the McNainaras, was not arraigned and is not expected to make any ap pearance in court until the trial be gins. The day for the McNamara brothers to plead was fixed for June 1. Wool is selling in the West, but not In the East. The volume of transfers In Boston the past week has been very small, less than 1,500,000 pounds going on fresh contracts, against a normal market of 3,000,000 pounds.

The navy department will ; send a collier to Havana to take J aboard any material of historic value j that may be raised, as well as the ; bones of any of the victims of the | explosion. ! Twenty-one indictments, according to reliable authority, were returned Friday by the grand jury at Los An geles, Cal., against the accused dyna mite conspirators, J. B. and J. J. Mc Namara and Ortie E. McManigal. Nineteen of the indictments are against the McNamaras alone and charging them with murder in con nection with the blowing up of the Los Angeles Times building and the consequent death of twenty-one men. The other two are said to be against McManigal as principal and the Mc Namara brothers as accomplices in the Llewellyn Iron Works explosion, in which no one was killeu. Assistant Attorney General Robert son, in an opinion to the game, fish and oyster commissioner^ holds that the jurisdiction of the State extends three leagues from the gulf coast line instead of three miles, as is cus tomary for the United States and all other countries. It seems that nearly every country, including the United States, claims a jurisdiction of three miles from its coast line only. The State of Texas, however, claims a jur isdiction of three leagues, 35,000 varas, or nearly eight miles. comes through the claims of boun daries set up by the Republic of Tex as In 1836, when jurisdiction for thre? leagues was established. This ! foreign. It is definitely announced that Queen Alexandra of England will be absent from London throughout the coronation festivities. The suffragettes and their support ers in parliament have had introduced in the house of commons in London another bill "to enable women to vote at parliamentary elections," which would give the vote to a larger por tion of women than did the bill of last year, which merely removed the disqualification of sex and marriage. There is no attempt made either at the embassy or consulate general to conceal the apprehension which is felt as to the situation of the Ameri cans in Saltillo and Torreon, both of which places are now besieged by mixed bands of rebels and bandits. Our colony in each place numbers be tween 400 and 500 and no news has come by train or wire.

President Diaz canceled a state din ner to the Chilean envoy to the Mujica Centennial now in- Mexico City, giv ing as his reason the advice of his physicians on account of indisposition. Subscriptions to the $5,000,000 loan which Japan has made to the Chinese government through the Yokohama Specie bank aggregate $8,450,000. Foreigners will be allotted more than \2, 500,000.

Baton Rouge.—So 'great is the de mand for hog cholera sérum that the State sanitary liys stock board has determined that in the future it will make a moderate charge for the serum that is supplied th« ffritters—enough to .aUow-^t-^^ts^' cfViiew hogs. -4|State to the farmers at less than cost, but the demand has been so heavy un der the present plan, and the appro priation is so limited, that the board has found it necessary to make charge in order to keep going, as new lot of hogs has to be bought every few months under the present plan, and this has proved expensive Secretary Flower has returned from North Louisiana, where he found hog cholera has broken out in several places. It seems to be almost epi demie, and for this reason the de mand can not be supplied. Just as soon as Secretary Flower figures out the exact cost of the production of the serum he will fix a price. In practically all of the States this meth od is followed. St&pover Privileges. New Orleans.—Following unquali fied charges of unjust discrimination by the railroads against the South in the matter of stopover privileges, the board of directors of the New Orleans Progressive Union issued a call Sat urday to Southern commercial and civic bodies and railroad companies to participate in a conference to be held in New Orleans in August this year to be known as the Southern States Transportation Conference. New Or leans is the only Southern city which today enjoys the benefits of stopover | privileges and for this reason the ; resolutions declare she should take J ti ie initiative and call together the j representatives of Southern States, ; cities, commercial and civic bodies | an( j transportation companies, "to ! the end that travel may be diverted j to the Southern States and the entire South enjoy similar privileges." Shreveport Makes Complaint. Baton Rouge.—A petition has been received by the Louisiana railroad commission from the Chamber of Commerce of Shreveport asking that the commission restore the minimum rate of $17 to $25, carload lot rate, on refrigerator cars from New Or leans to Shreveport. The petition says that the rate has been raised from $17 and $25 to $42.50. The case has been set for hearing at the com ing sessions. The roads summoned are the Southern Pacific, Texas and j p ac jfj c> Louisiana railway and Louis jana an( , Arkansas . __ New Orleans Rice Market.

The town is without fire protection and only a change iu the direction of the wind prevented the destruction of the entire business section. The prin cipal losses were: Ala B. Hall, gen eral merchandise, building and stock, $1,000; B. J. Banker, building, $8,000; J. L. Perry, building, $2,000. Firemen Eleçted Delegates. Hammond.—At the quarterly meet ing of the Hammond fire department Chief D. W. Wolf and Assistant Chief F. B. Thomas were elected as dele gates to the convention of the Louis iana State Firemen's Association, which will meet in Covington the lat ter part of this month. A. O. Jones and E. E. June were chosen as al ternatives. Several new men were elected to membership in the depart ment. New Orleans Sugar Market. New Orleans.— The local sugar mar ket was steady Saturilav. Sales were confined to the light receipts from plantations. Nothing came out of store. Prices were unchanged. Re fined sugars were steady and changed. un Rice Advertising Fund. Crowley.—Forty per cent of the country mills of Louisiana and Texas have already agreed to contribute 5 cents a bag for each bag of r<ice hand led next year for an advertising fund, provided that 90 per cent of the 1911 crop i ";so taxed. It is believed that 90 pei cent of the country mills will sign t? e agreement and that the city mills « ill also agree. The plan con tempi tt ;s the organization of a com pany to exploit rice by demonstration suppl em ;nted by advertising. New Orleans Cotton Market. New Orleans.—Cotton futures Sat urday opened steady, unchanged to 1 point up on the eld crop months and 2 off on the new. Cables were about as expected. The weather map was very good. Practically no rain was . re ported in the belt, and temperatures were but slightly below'the normal, except in a few localities. Reports of foul fields and of ground too wet to work or plant checked short sell ing. After the call prices fell to a level 3@6 points aown, but at the end of the first half hour the list stood 2 up to 2 down compared with Fri day's close. The weather forecast, predicting fair weather for the belt generally, held the market down around the middle of the morning, but later it strengthened on general buying. Orders came from outsiders, who appeared to be impressed with reports from the belt that much more cotton would have to be replanted than had been expected, and that less cotton was planted up to the time rains interferred with farm work than had been estimated by the majority of crop experts. The market had a rising tendency, when the old crops were 7@14 points over Friday's close and the new 6@7 over. Louisiana Daughters of Confederacy. Shreveport.—The convention of the Louisiana Division of the Daughters of the Confederacy closed, following the election of officers, including the re-election of Mrs. Edward Gottschalk of New Orleans as president and Miss Mattye McGrath of Baton Rouge as recording secretary. The daughters decided hereafter to hold their meet ings at the same time and place as the veterans. The United Daughters of the Confederacy scholarship loan fund was established, with Mrs. Peter Youree of Shreveport as chairman. From this fund loans will be made to Sons and Daughters of Veterans for educational purposes. Bad Lighted School. Castor.—Dr. Dowling, president of the Louisiana board of health, .with his co-workers, visited the flag station one mile south of Castor. This town, Alberta, has a number of saw mill laborers, all of whom seemed to en joy the exhibit very much. Miss Mor ris made a plea for a more progressive school system, showing that new con ditions demand new methods. Dr. Dowling followed with his doctrine of better health. He criticised the school building on the ground that the lighf was improperly directed, doubtless causing students to suffer from headache. Potato-Growing Contest. Crowley.—Fourteen farmers of this vicinity have engaged in a contest for cash prize for the best peck of Irish potatoes of the Irish Cobbler variety grown here this spring. A committee consisting of L. A. Wil liants, secretary of the Board of Trade; S. D. Wilder and R. W. Hay den awarded the prize to O. T. Mc Bride. The potatoes were said by ex perts to be of unusually good quality and size. It is expected that a car load of Irish potatoes will be shipped next week by the Acadia Parish Truck Growers' Association. Ten Per Cent Dividend. Crowley.—The Crowley Oil and Min eral Company is mailing out to stock- j holders checks aggregating $20,000, 1 being the fortieth 10 per cent dividend j on the capital stock of $200,000. This ! makes $800,000 paid out in cash divi- | dends to the stockholders, or 400 per cent of the sum represented by the capital stock, in a period of less than seven years since the first dividend was declared in'1904. Tax Question of Oil Wells. New Orleans.—The question as to whether the State has any right to assess the output of oil wells except the supply that is visible on January 1 is being investigated by Attorney General Walter Guion. Under the present system, that of assessing only such part of the output as may be found January 1, the State loses taxes on all the oil that is shipped out dur« ing the year. Rice Streams Are Full. Crowley.—Heavy rains during the past week have retarded rice plant ing in this section, but the streams have been filled and there is no danger this season of salt water in the streams used for irrigation pur poses. The corn and potato acreage has been heavily increased in this parish. Another Factory Soon. Shreveport.—Shreveport was given promise of its second window glass factory with the arrival this'week of R. R. Faulkner of Indiana, who has organized a company that will invest $100,000 in a plant in the Cedar Grove factory addition, where August Boe lenger of Brooklyn, Pa., is actively arranging to establish the Shreveport Co-operative Window Glass Com pany 's plant. REBELS ATTACK JUAREZ and five americans killed on texas side. MADERO SAD AND DOWNCAST Rebels' Lust for Blood Renders Them Insubordinate—They Retreat After Dark. El Paso, Tex.—Insubordination in the ranks of General Madero's army and lust for the fight of which federal concessions apparently had deprived them, caused a fierce attack on Juarez, which culminated in a careful retreat of the ins'irrectos after a day of continuous skirmishing. About 150 rebels, who early Mona day opened fire on the federals, Hot only captured some of the important outposts, but carried the fighting into Juarez. Failing to get reinforcements they retired. Five Killed in El Paso. The casualties of the insurrectos and federals are not known, but five persons on the American side of the line were killed and at least twelve wounded. Thousands of persons in El Paso dotted rooftops or lined the river banks in direct line with the fire. Colonel Steever of the Fourth United States Cavalry protested to both armies against the fire iifto American territory and it lessened considerably thereafter. Nearly 1,000 American troops were massed on the border, keeping back civilians, ready to respond to any or ders from Washington. General Francisco I. Madero is .1 sad and downhearted man. His ef forts to prevent a general attack were successful, but only after he had been bombarded with conflicting stories a > to the actual cause of the conflict. General Madero thinks that re marks attributed to General Tam berouel of the federal garrison in Juarez, taunting the insurrectos, in censed them, and in a statement he genuinely regrets the occurence. Lasted Till Nightfall. The fight lasted until dark and fur nished many a thrilling spectacle, as well as continuous terror for many Americans living along the river bank. About a dozen insurrectos were seen to emerge from the barren hills around Juarez early in the day. They skulked along through the shrubbery toward the federal outposts, firing re peatedly at a squad of federals cooped up in an adobe house. The version of the affair given at the Madero headquarters is that the federals began the engagement. At any rate, the federals soon left their adobe stronghold and fled, pur sued by the insurrectos. At the head of the insurrecto band was a Ca nadian, W. H. McKenzie, whose pink shirt was plainly visible as he pressed, closely to Juarez. Artillery in Actibn. At the first few shots two federals toppled over. Soon the federals aban-" doned their trenches and the rebels fired intermittently for a few hours without advancing. At last, about 5 o'clock in the afternoon, the federals brought their artillery into, action anJ heavy cannonading began. The federals gauged their fire well and shot shrapnel into the insurrecto camp near "Peace Grace," where 4he peace commissioners were to have j met. The insurrectos, however, took | advantage of the river bank and used ; i,; for protection, as the federals had ! heen ordered not to shoot into EI Paso. They came as far as the Atchi son, Topeka and Santa Fe railroaà bridge, which joins Juarez and El Paso, driving the federals back into town and taking possession of tlie cus tom houses. Rebels Enter Juarez. Carrying the fight into Juarez, the rebels entered the town and for four hours ke Pt U P a continuous fire. In surrecto reinforcements reached the bridge later in the afternoon, but did not fire - T,ie y withdrew at night un der orders from their chiefs. Not a few Americans were among those who entered Juarez. The first person killed on the American side of the line was Antonio Garcia, who was standing by the side of the Associated Press correspondent about 200 yards from the advancing insurrectos across the river. A woman sitting on a porch received a bullet in her ab domen. Two unidentified Americans were killed near the Santa Fe sta tion. The name of one was supposed to be Camp and his home is said to be in Nebraska, while the other had on his person a memorandum reading: "R. S. Ferguson, Troop F, San Fran cisco." No Mail for Mexico. Laredo, Tex.^-Postmaster Ligarde received telegraphic orders Monday from the postoffice authorities that no more mail was to go through into Mexico for the present. The orders were for the Mexico mail to be held at the San Antonio office and at the Laredo office until further instruc tions are given. Two Men Burned to Death. Robstown, Tex.—The junction point between the Texas and Mexican and the Gulf Coast Line ifas the scene of a holocaust Tuesday morning, involv ing the City hotel.

We didn't have time to get their names, ad dresses and photographs, but we lin gered long enough to hear the conver sation. The poignant part thereof was as follows: "How much did your fish weigh?" "I didn't have no hay scales with me, you mut. But when I pulled him out it lowered the lake four inches." "Some fish," commented the other, without the quiver of an eyelash. "Reminds me of some good sport I had duck hunting last, fall. I fired at a flock of ducks and gathered up four quarts of toes."—Cleveland Plain Dealer. FOOD IN SERMONS Feed the Dominie Right and the Ser» mons Are Brilliant. A conscientious, hard-working and successful clergyman writes: "I am glad to bear testimony to the pleasure and increased measure of efficiency and health that have come to me from adopting Grape-Nuts food as one of my articles of diet. "For several years I was much dis tressed during the early part of each day by indigestion. My breakfast seemed to turn sour and failed to di gest. After dinner the headache and other symptoms following the break fast would wear away, only to return, however, next morning. "Having heard of Grape-Nuts food, I f inally concluded to give it a trial. I made my breakfasts of Grape-Nuts with cream, toast and Postum. The re sult was surprising in improved health and total absence of the distress that had, for so long a time, followed the morning meal. "My digestion became once more satisfactory, the headaches ceased, and the old feeling of energy returned. Since that time I have always had Grape-Nuts food on my breakfast table. "I was delighted to find also, that whereas before I began to use Grape Nuts food I was quite nervous and be came easily wearied in the work of preparing sermons and in study, a marked improvement in this respect resulted from the change in my diet. "I am convinced that Grape-Nuts food produced this result and helped me to a sturdy condition of mental and physical strength. "I have known of several persons who were formerly troubled as I was, and who have been helped as I have been, by the use of Grape-Nuts food, on my recommendation."
