The placing in Paris of $20,000,000 of Missouri, Kansas and Texas con solidated 5 per cent bonds this week is said by a banker who is in touch with the foreign situation to mark the turning of the great buying power of the French investing public toward American securities.

Elaborate experiments made at Johns Hopkins University, New York, have resulted in the intro duction of a new heart stimulant, "bufagin," which is derived from the poisonous section from the creature's parotid gland, just below the ears. Bond for $7,500 was made and ap proved Thursday for Scig.ant J. D. Manley, who lias been in jail at Dallas since October 23, 190&, on a charge of murder in connection with the death of Louis Reichenstein. The killing was on tho day of the visit of Presi dent W. H. Taft to Dallas. Manley was one of State militiamen on guard near the fair grounds. It was a dusty and sweaty four thou sand troops that came into Dumont Thursday after covering thirteen miles of hot road between League City and Dumont.

The usual dignity and stateliness of the British capital's public buildings, principal parks and streets are being sacrificed to the demands of corona tion visitors and sightseers. The whole neighborhood of parliament, in cluding the yards of Westminster Ab bey and parliament buildings, is cov ered with huge unsightly wooden stands most of the way from Trafal gar Square to the abbey. The chief government offices are almost hidden in the same unattractive fashiop. St. James Park, near Buckingham Palace, is similarly covered. General Porfirio Diaz, who arrived at Havana on the steamer Ypiranga from Vera Cruz, resumed his voyage Sunday, the ship proceeding for Havre shortly before noon. At the last moment General Diaz received a visit of farewell from the Mexican minister, Senor Godyer, and repre sentatives of the Cuban government. Another frontier conflict has oc curred between Greeks and Truks near Dereli, in Greek territory. Five Turks were killed.

Viscount Mishima has been elected president of the Yokohama Specie bank. Scotland has a population of 4,759, 445, according to the provisional fig ures of the census. This is an in crease over 1901 of 287,042 and is the smallest increase in any census since 1861. A band of 250 revolutionists Friday captured a passenger train at Ahua lilco, Mexico, which had been sent to San Marcos station to bring in Gen eral Ruiz, former governor of Tepic, and a detachment of federal troops stationed there. The train was turn ed about and brought the insurrectos to Guadalajara, where they paraded the streets and made a demonstration in behalf of Roque Estrada, Madero's private secretary during the presi dential campaign last fall. The rebellious Arabs in Assyria have captured Ablia, the capital, and have made prisoners the 3,000 Turkish troops composing the garrison.

New Orleans.—The government bu reau reports were a big surprise in the cotton market Friday. The report on acreage was as big a surprise as the report on condition. One was as bullish as the other was bearish, and they about balanced one another after the ring got over its first shock. The market was wonderfully strong. Then the Tigures on condition came out They were 87 8, or almost 3 points bi?her than the average expected. The ring was crowded twenty deep with brokers. The floor was filled with visi •ors from all parts of the cotton belt. Jlot as it was, the visitors' gallery was ciowded with women. Louisiand Lumber Fire. Shreveport.— The Yellow Pine Lum ior Company planing mill and lumber yard, with a big stock of lumber, was destroyed by fire Friday, resulting in a loss of probably $40,000. W. O. Brice is head of the company. In ad ditiou to the lumber company's loss, tho Louisiana compress sustained about $1,000 damage, due to fire spreading from the lumber yard tc its lint mill. Leaving the lumbei stock to the flames, the firemen de voted attention to the compress anc saved it from destruction. Eight small frame houses occupied by ne groes caught fire from sparks from the lumber yards and were burned tc the ground. A mule was burned tc death and many wires were snapped, but nobody was hurt. Rice Has Plenty of Water. Crowley.—John R. Gray, engineer of the United Irrigation and Rice Mill ing Company, states that while the company's pumping plant on Vermil ion river has closed down because ol the presence of salt water, found to be fifty-six grains to the gallon, there is no probable danger from salt water, for the reason that all rice is well waîerea""Birtr-ti»tr canälsTn are well filled with fresh water. A rain of a couple of inches would wash the salt out and make it possible to resume pumping. The canals drawing their water from the Mermentau river have not yet been troubled with salt water. Plan German Volksfest. Crowley.—The German Society of Acadia parish will hold a picnic at Andings Lake next week, the object being to get the Germans of the parish together to discuss plans for the Ger man Volksfest and Fourth of July celebration to be held at Crowley on Juiy 4. At this celebration it is plan ned to revive some of the ancient Ger man customs and to sing German na tional songs. Added to this will be the old-fashioned American Independ ence Day celebration, with reading oi the declaration, an oration and the singing of patriotic songs. Proposed Steamship Line. New Orleans.—President James W. Porch of the New Orleans Progressive Union announced that the plans for the Mississippi Valley, South Ameri can and Orient Steamship Line, be tween New Orleans and South Amer ica, principally Brazil, had been com pleted, and in order that the trade route might be established without de lay the company would immediately go into the open markét to charter ves sels to serve until American boats could be built. Carload of Chickens Burns. Alexandria.—Passengers on the L„ R. and N. railroad from Coushatta told of the burning Friday of a car load of chickens at that place. The car was a total loss. There were 3,600 chickens and the value was $750. Only about fifty of the fowls were saved from burning. The car, when found on fire, was detached from the passenger train and a.lowed to bhrn on a secluded switch. The passenger train was delayed two or more hours on account of the accident. Louisiana Sunday Schools. Alexandria.—The Sunday school Doard of the Louisiana Methodist State conference held a meeiinc: this week and outlined a plan of work for the conference. The board is composed of a number of preachers and lay members of the conf#enee, who are meeting with the presiding elders. Among those in attendance were: Rev. H. R. Singleton of Shreveport, Rev. H. N. Brown of Morgan City, Rev. P. O. Lowery of Har.sfield. Rev. S. Keener of Monroe. t. V. Ellzey of New Orleans and others. New Orleans Sugar Market. New Orleans—The local sutrar mar ket was steady Saturday. Ofterings were light and supplies wer« 1 quickly disposed of. Prices were unchanged. Refined sugars were steady and in fair demand at quotations. New York re fined sugars were in good demand with the chafige in the list.. Confirmed 500 Persons. Alexandria —Bishop Van Deven of the Catholic diocese of Alexandria has , returned trom Ville Platte, La., where ! he confirmed five hundred persons. Brown to New Yo#k. New Orleans.—W. P. Brbwn, the cotton operator, left Saturday for New fork, and while he was fj^icommittal ">n the subject, his close friends in this market are of the opinion that he will play a leading part In the op erations now pending in the summer nonths in the cotton market of the \ T orth. For several months past Mr Jrown has not taken an active part in .he trading around the ring, but it is said that he has accumulated an in terest in the near months recently, and that he will be a factor in the :rading from now on. In discussing Friday's bureau report he said that the condition figures were higher than ixpected, but that the weather since May 25, the date to which the report jarried the crop, had been unfavor able. The acreage, he said, was not :is large as expected. "It is too early 'o form very decided opinions concern ing the new crop," he stated. "There is one point on which the trade is de ceiving itself, and that is in regard to the earliness of the crop. The opinion has gained ground in some quarters that this is an early crop, but just the reverse is true except in x few sections of the belt. It will re quire good weather from now oa to iiiake the big crop that the world teeds this coming year to ease the i'amine not only in raw cotton, but in finished cotton goods as well." Louisiana Lawyers. Lake Charles.—The annual meeting jf the Louisiana Bar Association con vened this week with President E. H. Randolph of Shreveport in the jhair.

Barbier, a tenant on the Belle Grove planta tion, was called to act as peacemaker oetween negro and wile, the black be came enraged and used his pistol, oiiooting at Mr. Barbier, who stood ia direct line with his family as the ne iio fired. The negro was a poor marksman and no one was tfurt. .Dep uty Sheriff M. Morales left soon alter tor the scene in an automobile with ais bloodhounds. No capture has been made as yet. School Term Ends. Colfax.—School closed this week, when diplomas were awarded to Miss Eva Jordan and Miss Willie Roberts. A gold medal was awarded to Miss Susie Dean by Judge W. F.

Considerable funds have already been subscribed. Estimate Fire Loss $150,000. New Orleans.—The plant of the Recorder Reiining Company at Chal mette, twelve miles from New Or leans, was partially destroyed by fire this ween as a result of lightning striking a tank of crude oil.

Shreveport.—In one of the hardest fought campaigns in the history of the State, the prohibitionists won out out of a total vote of 2,850, NEW PRESIDENT FOB MEXICO TO BE ELECTED ON OCTOBER 15. FIRST ATTEMPT AT VOTING In Mexico in More Than Thirty Years. Many Difficulties May be Encoun tered-^Reports of Disorders. Mexico City.—By official decree is sued Saturday by Mexico's provisional president, Francisco L. de la Barra, a special presidential election was called. In all states and territories electors will be chosen on October 1, and these will select the successor of Porfirio Diaz on Sunday, Oct. 15. Governors are instructed to define and publicly announce prior to June 30 electoral districts in their respec tive states and territories, using fpr purposes of apportionment the census of 1910. De la Barra fully realizes the im mense responsibility he has assumed, and the men who were prominent in the conduct of the revolution do not underestimate the difficulties that will be encountered in holding open elections in Mexico. In small towns and distant rural communities there doubtless are thousands to whom the word election conveys little or no meaning. Election returns may be slow in coming in, and it is not improbable, admit representatives of both the old government and the new, that in a few districts the result will be hope lessly tangled. However, those of both factions have tacitly agreed that since this is the first attempt at gen uine voting in more than thirty years, they will not be overparticular; that they will do the best they can. It remains for the various parties to select their candidates. At present Francisco I. Madero is the only man whose name is certain to be printed on a ballot. Reyes will be in the capital in a few days, and it is evident that his coming has made some of the Ma derists nervous. The general has not declared that he will not be a candi date, and until he answers the ques tion supporters of Madero will not be entirely at ease. General Reyes' friends are not so numerous as they were before he was sent out of the country, but none deny that he will be a formidable opponent in a presi dential contest. That any effort will be made to prevent him from reaching the capital is not expected, but stories TïT plots, both in his favor and against him, are heard dally. Reports of disorders continue to reach the capital, but they are for the greater part those of insignificant character, and government officials express themselves as satisfied with the progress being made in the re storation of peace. The only serious report received is that from Tapa chula, a town near the Guatemalan frontier. There a state bordering on anarchy is said to prevail. Mobs are reported In possession of the place, the old authorities gone and none yet named to replace them. The Ameri can consulate has been used as a refuge by dozens of frightened Chi nese, who fear such a fate as befell their countrymen at Torreon. The Chinese colony at Tapachula numbers 500. The Chinese legation has lodged with the Mexican government a claim for 2,000,000 pesos, alleging this amount of damage was incurred by Chinese residents of Torreon. His re ports show that 303 Chinese were kill ed in Torreon and 50 in the surround ing country. Two Lepers Reported Cured. New York.—That leprosy can be cured is apparently demonstrated by the discharge of two patients at the Blackwell Island hospital after several years' treatment in isolation. The first patient, an American, was allowed his freedom eight months ago, but no an nouncement was made until this week, as it was feared that if any publicity were attached to the case life would be made unbearable for the patient. The second patient, a woman, was also discharged some time ago and departed for her old home in the West Indies. Storm in Oil Field. Vinton, La.—Vinton was visited Tuesday by the most terrific down pour of rain in recent years. The es timated rainfall is two inches in fc? ty-five minutes, with some hail, but not enough to damage growing crops. At the oil field a cyclone prevailed, and as a result about twenty-four derricks remain standing of the hun dred-odd. Reimbursement From Mexico. Washington.—All Americans who have suffered loss of property or have been otherwise injured will secure re imbursement from Mexico, according to the state department. The depart ment has already received some in dividual claims but has refrained from submitting them to the Mexican gov ernment in order to give time for the reorganization. Ship Texas Grapes. Harlingen, Tex.—Thursday R. B. Clark shipped a wagon load of Cali fornia table grapes *out of Harlingen. This is the earliest shipment ever made on grapes, it being over two months ahead of California. Launch. 45,000-Ton Vessel. Belfast, Ireland.—The White Star liaer Titanic, a fiister ship of the Olympic, was launched Thursday. The ïitanic is of 45,000 tons register, 882% feet long and 92 ft feet beam. THE GR£A1 AUTOM OBILE RACE Harroun Drives 500 Miles in 400 Min« utes and 8 Seconds—Mechanic Dickson Killed. Motor Speedway, Indianapolis, Ind. For fame, fortune and the glory of the automobile one life was sacrificed and several men were injured Tues day in the first 500-mile race on a speedway, the greatest test of skill and endurance in the history of the sport of motor racing, won by Ray Harroun, driving a Marmon car, In the time of 6 hours, 41 minutes and 8 seconds. Closely pressing Harroun for the victory were Ralph Mulford, with a Lozier, who finished second, and David Bruce Brown, .who drove hl8 Flat under the wire a good third. Seventy-five thousand persons roar ed encouragement to the forty pilots that started the race. In the most serious accident of the day, S. P. Dickson of Chicago, me chanician for Arthur Greiner, driving an Amplex, lost his life in an upset on the back stretch. At the first 100 miles Bruce Brown led, Mulford was second and Tetzlaff was third. At 150 miles Harroun had come up from the trailers and was in second place. At 190 miles Harroun had taken the leac|, which he held to the end. ; At 200 miles Aarroun was first, Bruce Brown second and Mulford third. At 300 miles Harroun was first, Mul ford second and Bruce Brown third. At 400 miles and 450 miles and at the finish it stood: Harroun, Mulford and Bruce Brown. But in between these last three points in the contest Bruce Brown and Mulford "see-sawed" for second place until not even the judges were certain until the last lap who had taken it. Both Brown and Mulford were at all stages of the race dangerous con tenders for the lead and one delay of but little more than time to change tires by Harroun would have meant certain loss of the contest. Toward the latter part of the race the three leaders were little more than 30 seconds apart. All three hand led their cars in masterly fashion. Mulford lost considerable valuable time through tire trouble, and Bruce Brown was off the track more times than Harroun. The first ten men to finish the race, with their winnings, follow: Name and Car— Prize.

Grayberg, Tex.—With his head split in two pieces by a saw and while friends held the pieces of his head to gether, Robert Davis, aged 20 years, tried to talk and get on his feet, but sank down and died In a few minutes. Davis was employed as scaler for the Thompson Ford Lumber Company. Thursday he had occasion to stand underneath a cut-off saw which was used to cut logs. The saw which re volves rapidly is suspended over the log way and is lifted up out of the way with weights which so balanced it that it lifts of its own accord when not in use. As Davis bent over to measure a log the weights on the saw broke. The saw descended and hit Davis in the top of the head, cutting diagonally through the head to the shoulder. The path of the saw cut through one eye, through the nose and down just outside of mouth and on down to the junction of the »neck with the body. One part of the face carried one uninjured eye and the other part carried the uninjured mouth. Davis fell into the sawdust and fellow workmen heard the saw grating on the log chain and missing Davis found him where he fell. They raised him up and pressed his head together. He appeared to be con scious and tried to talk and tried to get on his feet, but his strength failed fast and he sank down and died in half an hour. Three Carloads of Cabbage. Brenham, Tex.—Three full carloads of cabbage have been shipped out of Brenham for Northern markets dur ing the last day or two. This is the largest amount of cabbage that has been sent out of Brenham in a single shipment in a long time. School Fund of $165,000. Austin, Tex.—The available school fund has $165,000 to its credit, permit ting an allowance of 15c per capita on the apportionment. It is now short 35c per capita. Since some $300,000 ia still needed, a deficit may resulf for a short time. Lightning Fires Oil. Muskogee, Okla—Lightning Mon day struck and set fire to two big tanks of oil of the Muskogee Oil Re fining Company and for a time threat? ened the big plant of the refinery. SHE GOT WHAT SHE WANTED This Woman Had to Insist Strongly, but it Paid Chicago, I1L—"I suffered from % fe male weakness and stomach trouble, and I went to tbv store to get s bottle of Lydia £. Pink. ham's Vegetable Compound, but the clerk did not want to let me hare it he said it was no food and wanted me o try something else, but knowing all about it I in sisted and finally got it, and I am so glad I did, for it has cured me. "I know of so many cases where wo-. men have been cured by Lydia E. Pink ham's Vegetable Compound that I can Bay to every suffering woman if that medicine does not help her, there is nothing that will."—Mrs. J jlnetzd, 2963 Arch St., Chicago, 111. This is the age of substitution, and women who want a cure should insist upon Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound just as this woman did, and not accept something else on which the druggist can make a little more profit. Women who are passing through this critical period or who are suffering from any of those distressing ills pe culiar to their sex should not lose sight of the fact that for thirty years Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, which is made from roots and herbs, has been the standard remedy for fe male ills.

An active and successful young lady tells her food experience: "Some years ago I suffered from nervous prostration, induced by con tinuous brain strain and improper food, added to a great grief. "I was ordered to give up my work, as there was great danger of my mind failing me altogether. My stomach was in bad condition (nervous dyspep sia, I think now) and when Grape Nuts food was recommended to me, I had no faith in It. However, I tried it, and soon there was a marked im provement in my condition. "I had been troubled with, faint spells, and had used a stimulant to revive me. I found that by eating Grape -Nuts at such times I was re lieved and suffered no bad effects, which was a great gain. As to my other troubles—nervous prostration, dyspepsia, etc.—on the Grape-Nuts diet they soon disappeared. "I wish especially to call the atten tion of office girls to the great benefit I derived from the use of Grape -Ntâs as a noon luncheon. I was thoroughly tired of cheap restaurants and ordin ary lunches, and so made the experi ment of taking a package of Grape Nuts food with me, and then slipping out at noon and getting a nickel 's worth of sweet cream to add to it. "I found that this simple dish, fin ished off with an apple, peach, orange, or a bunch of grapes made a lunch fit for a king, and one that agreed with me perfectly. "I throve so on my Grape-Nuts diet that I did not have to give up my work at all, and in the two years have had only four lost days charged up against me.
