After Seven Reprieves, Ari
zona Convicted Murder
ers to Pay Penalty.
Phoenix. Ariz., April 3. Four Mexi
cans, convicted of murder in 1911. five
times reprieved by Gov. Hunt and twice
upon order of the pardon board, must
hang at the Arizona penitentiary. Their
last legal loophole to escape the gal
lows Is gone.
The supreme court" has affirmed the
Judgment of the Pinal county superior
court, which refused to release them on
writs of habeas corpus. They applied for
these writs on the ground that they
were not hanged at a time not leas than
SO nor more than 90 days from the
Judgment of conviction. Of this con
tention the supreme court says:
Object llrcannr :ot Hanged.
"In other words, appellant is object

this court has often expressed Itself of
a desire to do substantial Justice, yet

to have been hanged March 19.1913, but
a few days before that date Francisco
Villa protested to the state department
William J. Bryan, then secretary of
state, telegraphed the governor and
pardon board, urging that they grant
reprieves to the four condemned men
and avoid "international complica
tions" with Mexico. Reluctantly the
board directed the governor tc Issue
reprieves extending to May 28. Just
before that date Robert Lansing, who
had succeeded Bryan, requested a
Turther reprieve, and a delay until July
30 was agreed to by the board. In July

Wee Bit of Humanity Pished
From River by Laborers;
Was in Pine Box.
A plain wooden box formed the cof
fin and muddy river water the shroud
for the body of a little American baby
which was found in the river Monday
morning by two Mexican laDorers who
were going to their work. The baby is
thought to have been about two days
The little body was naked, there
was no marks on the box to indicate
where it had come from and the body
was so badly decomposed that It was
only possible tb tell that the baby had
been born of American parents.
Identity n Mystery.
Where the hodv was Dlaced in the
river, who the mother may have been
and whether It was dead or auve wnen
placed in the small pine box, will
probably never be known. Undertak
ers say the body's condition indicates
that It had been in the water 24 hours
or lonarer. Thin mia-ht mean that tha
box had been thrown into the river near
Las Cruces or Mesilla Park, as hy
draulic experts declare that water
moves about 40 miles In 24 hours
To Police Station.
The Mexicans who found the baby's
body were Alvlno Acosta and Pablo
Gonzales. They were going from their
homes In the Mexican quarter to their
dally work when ono of them noticed
the little pine box caught in an eddy
at the foot of Seventh street They
fished out the box without thinking
what its grewsome contents was and.
as Annn m thev saw the discolored
body partially covered with dirt they
carried It to the police station.
The body was removed to the J. J.
Kaster Undertaking company parlors,
where coroner J. 41. Oeaver conducted the
quest but was unable to learn anything
that might lead to the Identification
or the body. The box in which the
body was found measures 18 by 18
Inches and Is believed to have been
made for the purpose of disposing, of
the body, dirt piled over the little
form and the box then thrown In the
river with the intention of sinking It

Dark Coloring Of Yolk
Does Not Mean Age;
May Be Due To Alfalfa
Tucson. Ariz.. April 3. Popular fal
lacies regarding the coloring of egg
yolks are exposed by Dr. 11 II. Wil
liams, animal husbandman of the un
iversity agricultural experiment station.
Dark coloring of a yolk does not
mean that It has more food value than
a yolk of light yellow color, according
to Dr. 'Williams. Neither does It mean
that the egg has been kept a long time
In cold storage. It simply means that
the hen has been fed on a certain kind
of food, probably alfalfa or yellow
Alfalfa Is widely used as a feed by
southwestern poultry growers. They
are handicapped by the popular belief
that yolks grow dark when kept for
long periods In storage. Often a con
sumer thinks that he Is getting stored
eggs when they are stricly fresh.
Linseed meal gives egg yolk a green
ish tinge Wheat, oats and beets have
a tendency to make eggs with yolks
of pale yellow. Any green feed will
heighten the yellow color.
In no case does the color of the yolk
denote the food value of an egg.
