WIFE TELISJF ENCOUNTER Knives and Pistols Were Used In Bat tle in Brush on the Banks of the Ris Grande—Automobile Is Riddled. Hidalgc, Tex.—One of the most des perate single-handed encounters which ever took place between a United States customs officer and a gang of Mexican smugglers on the Rio Grande border fell to the lot of Dick McCon nell, a government river guard here, a few nights ago. McConnell, accom panied by bis wife and two little daughters, was riding in an automo bile along the Rio Grande, near town. Leaving the car, McConnell started toward the river bank. He had gone but a short distance when he was tired upon from ambush. A bullet knocked off his bat. He rushed toward the spot from which the bullets were coming. He returned the tire as he ran into the brush and there came upon the two Mexicans. Oil of them grabbed him by the back of neck and a scuffle ensued, during which be received knife wounds and bad his pistol holster cut to pieces. He drew a small gun, which he carried in the holster under his shirt, and fired at his assallrnt, whom be killed, end the body fell into the rapidly ris ing Rio Grande.

City "Dads** of South Dakota City Believe Parents Are Largely to Blame for Children Running About Streets at Night. Sioux Falls, S. D.—The city of Lem mon. S. D., has one of the most unique curfew ordinances In existence any where in the United States. The par ents are held equally guilty with the children for violations of the curfew. The ordinance provides that boys and girls under seventeen years of age must be off the streets and at home after 9:30 o’clock each evening. If they are on the streets or other public places after that hour they must ho accompanied by their parents or some authorised guardian. The city “Dads” believe that par ents are largely to blame for their fell off and something struck the car. Dick jumped back, pulled his auto matic and begun to shoot. Again and again came the flash and something struck the car again. The children and I could see the man who was shooting at my husband backing down under the hank and my husband walking toward him, shooting. “They both disappeared under the bank when we heard a nolse like men fighting or struggling. I was getting nervous and did not know what to do. We heard three more shots and I heard some one yell out In Mexican. Shortly after my husband came to the top of the ban- holding hts hands to his face and told me to drive to Deputy Collector J. R. Clark’s house and bring him and also a lantern. I drove as fast as I could and’ returned with Clark and the lantern. “We found my husband's hat near the car with a bullet hole In the top ♦ ? ; $63,000,000 a Month for J J Amusement in America 5 t Washington.

J i ; Airplane Search for Grain Pests Remarkable Survey Being Con ducted in Texas by U. S. Ag ricultural Department. RUST SPORE REING SOUGHT Annual Lobs in Wheat Alone Due to Stem Rust Is Estimated at 64,000,- 000 Bushels—Mexico Believed to Be Source of Spore. San Antonio, Tex. —One of the most remarkable surveys aver made under the direction of the United States De partment of Agriculture Is now in progress in Texas. It is that of search ing the air for the spore shat causes rust on growing wheat and oats. It is estimated that the annual loss children running about the streets nt unseemly hours of the night, and therefore placed a provision In the ordinance making the parents respon sible with the children for violations of the provisions of the ordinance. Some of the parents who have been in the habit of permitting their chil dren to remain away from home until quite late at night have regarded the ordinance as of no Interest to them, and as a result when their children were found running at large’ after 9:30 o’clock at night the parents themselves were required to appear In court and explain why their chil dren were not required by the par ents to be home by 9:30 o’clock. At one time several parents were In court on the charge of permitting their children to violate the curfew ordinance, and In each case a small fine was Imposed, with the admoni tion that further violations by their children would subject them to heavier fines. of tiie ci'Hvu. On the river bank we picked up a long-b'.aded knife. Lying partly In the water was a felt hat with three bullets in It. Near thj boat was a sack containing seventeen quarts of tequila. “Upon returning tc the car we found where three bullets had pierced the cowl, one of which passed through and hit the steering wheel, breaking a part of it off. One of the bullets piercing the cowl, but spending its force against the Iron dash, was picked up by Deputy Collector Clark and was said to be from a .45. The other hit the side of the cowl and glanced off.” WILL BUILD AERIAL HARBOR Corporation at Gothenburg, Sweden, Prepares Plans for Joint Mu nicipal Field. Gothenburg, Sweden. This city, with Its extensive marine shipping fa cilities and its new free port, is now preparing to build an aerial harbor. It will have all the facilities required by sky pilots, an up-to-date service de partment and the latest conveniences for landing and taking off. A corporation has been formed to build the air station and operate it in conjunction with the city authorities of Gothenburg It is proposed that the city shall have the privilege of buying the company’s shares In the en terprise after ten years and thus take over full control of the air port. Youth Made a Minister. Reading, Pa. —Converted at eight years, preaching for the last two years nt his home at Pottstown and ordained a minister recently at the age of sixteen is the remarkable record of Ira Bechtel, one of the new ministers accepted today at the an nual conference of the Holiness Chris tian church, meeting at Birdsboro. in wheat alone due to stem rust is ap proximately 64,000,000 bushels. It is the theory of some agricultural scien tist? that the source of the spore which causes this enormous loss is in Mexico or perhaps South America and that it drifts through the air to the wheat fields of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and other states. Airplane Search in Progress. During the last two weeks an air plane search for the spores has been made at high altitudes above San An tonio. For this purpose an airplane from Kelly field is used, with Lieut. T. R. Booker as pilot and Wallace But ler as scientist Armed with a “spore trap” Mr. But ler has made six exposures at varying altitudes on each aerial journey. These plates have been sent to the office of cereal Investigation for examina tion. Thus far no reports have been given out of the findings. Anyone who walks through an oat field in this part of the state now will come out with his shoes covered with a yellowish powder which has brushed off from the innumerable little yellow leaves. This powder any farmer will tell one Is rust, in this case the leaf rust of oats. Every little yellow spot on the leaf is a pustule of lea 2 rust, each pustule being made up of from one to several thousand tiny seed bodies or spores which are pushed up through the epidermis of the leaf from a sort of root structure or mass of threads which are growing within the leaf. These threads are very minute and can be seen only by the aid of the microscope. The spores which are borne in such multitudes on the ends of little branches from these threads are also microscopic in size. The pow der on the shoes after a trip through the oat field consists of millions of these spores. Dew Helps. When one of these spores falls on n drop of dew or other moisture on a leaf of oats it soon sends out a little root-like projection which, curling around this way and that, finds Its way Into the breathing pore or open ing in the epidermis of the leaf and so gets into the leaf tissues. In due time It becomes the mass of threads which again send up tha mass of spores, and so the process is repeated with favorable weather conditions about every two weeks. The city authorities now have given notice that the curfew ordinance means just what It says and that* it will continue to be strictly enforced, regardless of whose children may be affected and that neglectful parents will be taken into court no matter how prominent they may be In the community.
