In Turkestan, in the irrigated dis trict, there are 800.000 acres of land planted in American cotton and it is the intention to plant the land that will be irrigated by the new projects in the same crop.

MERCHANTS' LEAGUE FAILS TO GET WEEKLY QlTORni The failure of a sufficient number of members to attend the meeting of the Retail Merchants' league caused the regular Thursday evening session to be called off. The league has been unable to hold a meeting for several weeks, ow ing to the absence of the memners.

At their own expense, the policy holders are learning the intricacies of the new fire insurance law. The Popular Dry Goods company had a. yuncy wiiLieii in .uarcu ior one year on which the premium vas paid. In a message to the ette fire rating board, the company asked if the re duction authorized by the board effect ive July 11th entitled the company to a return of the premium from July 11th. The answer from the rating board was prompt and to the point. "Order does not affect policies written prior to July 11th." This means that the reduction of 25 percent and the re duction of ,7 cents for additional oc cupants in a mercantile building does not apply except on policies written after July 11. mere is nouiing ot tne nature of a flareback to the reduction and the fire insurance companies wilf not be forced to return any of the hard earned coin which they have collected in premiums at the old rate prior to the late of the reduction. "" "It's an ill wind that don't blow some body good." Never aid that prove more true than when the mammoth stock of the Welch Furniture Co. was damaged by fire and water, as prepara tions are now being made to give the people of El Paso the greatest bargains ever known. More than one-half of the stock was not damaged in any way whatsoever. The remainder was slight ly damaged by water and the entire 100,000 retail stofk of the Welch com pany will be placed on sale Vithin a few dab's. If you want your money to do more than triple duty watch and wait for this great sale. A large force of men are at work getting everything in shape and the sales manager, represent ing the insurance company, will offer everything in the store at less than half the actual cost and he expects to close out the entire stock in less than two weeks.

With a curt nod to the men, he strode out through the mouth of the cave and was gone. Dusk had settled down upon mountain and val ley. One of the men cut the rope that bound Truxton's feet "Get up," said the Newport man. "We've got to be movin'." Still gagged and somewhat dizzy. King was hurried off into the narrow mountain path, closely surrounded by the five men. The silent, cautious march down the valley, through the gap and along the ridge carried them far into the night. This much he knew they were in the hills directly above the northern gates. The vague, black shadow of a lightless house loomed up before them. In a twinkling he was hustled across the road and into a door, then down a flight of stairs, through pitchy dark ness, guided by two of the men. a whispered word of advice now and then from the Yankee saving him from perilous stumbles. He was jerked up sharply with a command to stand still, A light flashed suddenly in his face, blinding him for a moment Soon he saw that they -were in a broad, bare cellar: three men in heavy black beards were in earnest conversa tion with several of his captors; all were gesticulating fiercely. His Xewport companion enlightened him between puffs of the pipe he was struggling with. "Here's where we say goodby, young fellow. We turn you over to these gents, whoever they are. You go into the village gay with these 'swabs' by the sewer line, I guess." Truxton pricked up his ears. "The old man has had a hole chopped in the sewer here, they tell me, and irs a snap to get into the city. Not very clean or neat, but it gets you there. Well, so long! They're ready, I see. They don't monkey long when they've got a thing to do." In another moment his guardianship was transferred; he was being hurried across the cellar toward an open door way.

He realized nt once where he was. The gurgle of running water came up to him. It was the great sewer that ran from the hills through the heart of tlie city, flushed continuously by a diverted mountain stream that swept down from above. He did not know how long they I traversed the chill sewer. Jn time. however, the water got deeper; rats began to senrry along the sides of the circle or to swim frantically on in front of the disturbers. At last the strange journey ended. They came to a niche in the slimy wall. Up into this the men climbed. The man above was cautiously tapping on what appeared to be solid masonry. To King's surprise av section of the wall suddenly opened before them. He was seized from above by strong hands and literally jerked through the ' hole, up narrow steps and raen into a long, dim ly lighted room, in the center of which stood a long table. He was passed on into a small room adjoining. Some one, speaking in Eng lish, told him to sit down. The gag was removed from his stiff, inflamed mouth. 4 "Fetch him some water," said a voice that he was sure he recognized a high, querulous voice. v"Hello, Spantz!" articulated Truxton, turning to the black bearded, bent fig- ure. There was an Instant of silence. Then Spantz spoke, with a soft laugh: "You will not know so - much, tomor , row. Herr King. Give him water, . man.

Threats followed close i upon his unsatisfactory answers, j though they were absolutely truthful. "We'll find a way to make you talk tomorrow, my friend! Starving is not pleasant." "You would not starve me!" he cried. "No. You will have the pleasure of starving yourself," said a thin eyed fellow whom he afterward knew as Peter Brutus. He was thrown back into the little room.

A chimney hole in the ceiling was perhaps the only means by wjiich fresh air could reach this dreary place. Sleep was claiming his senses.
