tttt. E. B. * leave Santiago for the }>;lt> ojw Aftde« «t 8.30 a. m. by train on the tm8-And<m« railway. Our train Is itflte Mioarrn, with comfortable chairs 'lrtth all the common accessories for , tfftvellng. *• We passed through the fertile valleys » Wn*refruit of all kind's is grown, veg- **t»Mes and alfalfa, oxen cart* and C other vehicles on wheels wending their wav along the dusty rftads. Beautiful v rivers rushing along and here ana *• there canons jutting out between the * mountainous peaks. Horses, sheep and * cattle and bne ranch where they were 1 V threshing grain, as this is the time of * year they gather the crops. , t Our » first dinner consisted of five | * Courses, serving one thing at a time, i t The waiters served \>a in white gloves. i Tfhe first point In history was the sol" dler's lump across a deep ravine on ' Ma horae to escape his pursuers. Soon *' fcfter this vegetation ceased, the *\ leather became cooler, with the hills 1' crumbling: ,' 6ur first stop was Juncal, where a . lew scattered huts were seen for the i workman. A beautiful waterfall came ' into view, with its wntrr dashing down 'over the barren precipice. Next stop < was Portillo, 9,406 feet above sea level. « the train passing on through numerous tunnels and snow sheds for miles. The " road is continually zig-zagglng in and . out and up to make the ascent. We ., come to a lake blue as indigo, where ,1 the water never rises or falls, called « Inca lake. We arrive at Caracoles, •» the last station on thfcjChilean side and *• through Cumbre tunnel, two miles ' lone in the interioWbf which is the <: Argentine and Chilean border line, I which is 10,522 feet above sea level, ' with the Christ of, the Andes monument over it (described later). Hero ' our passports were examined, and on * -<we pass the Inca bridge, a unique, natural stone structure, and is said , to have been used by the Incas. Fur- v ther on is Las Cuevas, 10,335 feet, the •» highest point reached, where it seems i almost possible to reach up and touch II the lagged peaks of the uttermost ' crests, as they rise to the sky, where ' rivers are born out of ice blue gla- 1 clers, where clouds move over the r peaks of the majestic mountains. The '. train hurries on past boulders as big aa ten houses flung about anyhow, ,' just as they lay. There seems to be no living thing to resent the shrill whistle of our locomotive echoing through the wild canons we are crossing, on to Punta '". del Inca, where we get a glimpse of Mt. Aconcagua, the loftiest peak in .< the Western hemisphere, measuring , 23,080 feet. .It is eternally covered i 1 with snow and is undoubtedly a glo- •:' rlous sight. We pass a curious rock " formation, giving the illusion of a •''• procession of cowled monks slowly ''' wending their way up the slope toward ' an ancient Gothic cathedral. Here was " the first rainfall since leaving Panama. We come to an aviation field which is ' 8,000 feet above sea level, then on to Upsallata and passing a vast undulat- .,! 'Ing plain comes into view, wild and i bare with dried bushes and cactus, the only vegetation. On either side •'!'' and in front, mountains gray gaunt " and barren, are seen, certainly a weird '.' scene, •> '•'''. The railway follows an old trail over ';•' -which primitive people passed cen- ?, turles before the coming of the •'( Spaniards.

At 9 p. m. we board the Buenos Aires Pullman train. .There is always some excitement in getting off. Usually there is an error in the number of tickets sold for births, as an example two couples had tiskets for the same birth, then a widow llady and her niece had the same number as a bachelor gentleman. The younger of the ladies said she 'was not quite so modern..

CbLUMBUS, Ind., June 7. — Seeing "smoke" curling about the tower of the Bartholomew county courthouse here.. residents of Columbus called the flre department.

BUTTE, Mont., June 7.—Value of Boy Scout training was dramatically demonstrated the other day when a group of 13 and 14-year-old scouts set the broken leg of a companion scout, placed the injured member in an improvised cast and did such a good all around job that a physician later said it could not be improved. As he was climbing up a mountain, Ben Wf ight, aged 13, Slipped and broke his leg just above the ankle. Instantly scout discipline and train- Ing came to the fore. One boy hurried to notify the scout leader who was far behind, another skilfully joined the broken ends of the bone while others gathered and split saplings. They fashioned splints, placed them around the injured leg and bound them tightly with their multicolored neckerchiefs. •i UTILAC A high grade enamel, dries in 4 hrs. $1.35 '* W. H.

The history of loelafW is crowded with battles and bloodshed, but the present peaceful population could hardly believe sthe report pat travelled over the island one bright morning, that a respectable citizen or Reykjavik had been attacked during the night, robbed, brutally beaten arid murdered, It was the third killing, In over half a century. Jon- Egilsson, bachelor, aged 41, conducted with his brother .a motorcar agency and repair' shop, situated: on the outskirts of the town, but facing the main thoroughfare. On the^night of the murder Sgilsson went to bed as he was accustomed to, sleeping alone in the building. At 10 ojclock the next morning he'was found dead in his bedroom, barefooted and almost naked, hts^head horribly battered. About 1600 in cash was missing from the company's safe. The weapon with which Egilsson was murdered was a bar of brass. • Detectives who first .examined the room noticed one very unusual thing; the killer had left his goggles and brass War behind, but he had taken time to wash his hands before leaving the scene of the crime. Trie chief of '.police of Reykjavik, Hermann Jonasson, took charge of the case personally and worked it out according to his own ideas, for there are no r.eal specialists on criminology in a community with so few criminals. All - the employes of Egllsson's - firm were questioned, but apparently- they all had perfect alibis. Finally a chauffeur, Egill Hjalmarsson, attracted the particular attention of the detectives because he had a new pair of goggles. He claimed that he had been out late the night before driving a party into the' country, and that when he got home at about two o'clock in the morning he went direct to bed. • This part of the story was true. He did go straight to bed, but got straight out again, and was away from his room for a long time. Hjalmarsson could not explain how k he got several scratches on his face. And when a detective examined the new goggles. Goggles are not usually perfumed, but these had the sarne scent as the pair found beside Kgilsson's body. The new joggles'were found in a drawer, next to a box of face-powder. \ . . Little more than twelve hours after Efeilsson died, the police ,had sufficient evidence .-to arrest Hjalmarsson. He was taken into custody the same evening and charged by the chief of police the following day. Hjalmarsson confessed and thus the crimp was solved in little more than a day and a night. The murderer is now awaiting sentence to prison for life,—capital punishment was abolished in Iceland some time ago. Reports on the sanity of the prisoner may influence the sentence. ^Al*lft; Edward Of Wn- Ham and Mary And Ja*« I Sweet mem- cries of the Stuarts arid Tutors ahd Ydrkst Th«iy We ftUtUfttf Aft SleVatot in the Victoria' Ww«r it Windsor castle!

Fonrioe Uichiton The Pontiac Big Six enjoys a worldwide reputation for dependability— because it is built on big car principles a'nd to big car standards of quality. Its 60-horsepower motor develops maximum power at moderate engine speeds—is never over-taxed, no matter how fast or far you drive. The big main bearings are of the costly Interchangeable airplane type. There is definite protection in the full pressure oiling system and crankcase ventilation which prevents dilution of the engine oil. Efficient cooling is assured by the cross-flow radiator. And Pontiac internal-expanding brakes frequently run 30,000 miles before the lining needs replacement. You know, when you buy a Pontiac Six, you are buying a dependable car. 1212 ELEVENTH AVENUE QUALITY FURNITURE CO. tM Mb Ave. I>iul 2-8866 UtU* O«t t>t ttie Wa>, itlll l-ui» to f».v" PONTIAC BIG SIX - -PRODUCT Of GENKKAL MOTORS- C.
