near Redondo Beach.
Ten hours after the body of the
young reporter, battered almost be

was round on tne precipitous coast
near Rocky Point, that of the aviator-companion
was picked up a mile

His hands were gloveless and
clenched, and on one sparkled the
diamond ring which. In his will, made

SUPPOSED MURDERER IS
IMPRISONED AT HAYDEN

thought to be the much sought mur
derer, Margurito Martinez, was arrested
by deputy Barton, of Kelvin, arid taken
to Ray and brought from there and

Faith and Germs.
The firm belief of the people in. the
very existence of. the disease germ Is
a touching Instance of the power of
faith. "Which of us has seen, the germ
of tuberculosis at any time? Certain
holy men In our laboratories declare
that they have seen It through the eye
of the microscope, as holy men of old
reported their visions of devils and of
angels. We accept the reports of our
seers as did our fathers In the so-called
Age of Faith. "Woe to us If
through Bkeptlclsm or callous indiffer
ence we neglect the ceremonial purifi
cations which they have established.
If my house has been possessed by
the foul devils of scarlet fever, It 13
at peril of active persecution by the
law that I fall to burn my sulphur in
cense. By force of public opinion,
and by law as well, I should be com
pelled, did not my- abounding faith,
lead me of my own accord to purchase
indulgence against the purgalorlal
pains of the smallpox through the lite
of vaccination. The penance imposed
is but the discomfort of a sore arm
and some pence paid to the minis
trant Robert Kilbum Root in the
Nature's Hints to Inventors.
The view has been advanced in.
more than one quarter that during the
next two or three centuries invention
will probably be in the direction of
imitating the wonderful economy and
the simple, direct methods of nature,
An instance in point is the electric
eel. Its electric organ is in no sense
a storage battery, but a contrivance
by which electric energy is liberated
at the moment when It is required. At
rest the organ shows eo small an elec
tric force that a good galvanometer
Is needed to detect It, but a sudden
nervous impulse from the eel's spinal
cord raises a potential of many volts j
with very little heat and so small an
expenditure of matter as to defy the
most expert chemist to weigh it.
Fireflies, glow-worms, and many deep
sea fishes produce light without heat
at & cost which, would make a match
an extravagant outlay. Harper's
IN COACH CEILING
Curled up In the celling- of an east
bound Texas & Pacific passenger coach,
with sufficient food and water to last
them for a long journey, two Chinamen
were found at the Union station yards
Thursday night by Louis Holzrnan. cus
toms Inspector, and the Immigration
inspectors. The Chinamen evidently
had a pal to assist them to their rather
cramped bunk and replace the ceiXng
panel after them. The orletals are in
detention at the immigration station
on the Santa Fe bridge charged with
being in the United States contrary to
the immigration laws.
