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

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

Mrs. McConnell, who was In the car
at the time of the attack, gave the
following account:
Wife’s Account.
“I and the children were In the
back seat of the car when we drove
up near the river bank, near the small
boat ferry landing. As my husband
got out of the car and started to go

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

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

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

RUST SPORE REING SOUGHT

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

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.
